  • The Johnson County Prosecutor’s Office would like to send hearts to those who helped make its new Child Advocacy Center a reality. Thanks to the construction efforts of Dennis Henderson Contracting, Miller Electric, Irish Mechanical Services, and design assistance from Office Installation Services and Padgett’s Signs, we now have a centralized location to coordinate the investigation, prosecution and treatment of child abuse cases. We greatly appreciate the efforts of these groups in helping make Johnson County a safer place for our children.

  • Hearts to Mr. and Mrs. Tom McClain, my Daily Journal carriers. Delivery is always where I can retrieve my newspaper, even in this bad weather and never missed. Tom and his wife checked on me when I didn’t bring my newspaper indoors the day before and always give a thank-you card for tips. Outstanding — could not ask for more.

  • Hearts, hearts and more hearts to three Franklin firemen from Station 23, C shift. On Jan. 17, they were gassing up their firetruck when we stopped and asked them for help. Having had foot surgery, we were not sure how to get me (Joyce) back into the house. They followed us home, got a chair and carried me in. They were such friendly, helpful guys. Franklin should be proud of their public servants.

  • What a clever letter by Janet Hommel Mangas to “Chuck” the groundhog, published in your Feb. 1-2 edition. Ms. Mangas always has such interesting, entertaining articles, and this one was especially good. I really appreciate and enjoy her columns.

  • Again, we here at the Interchurch Food Pantry of Johnson County would like to thank Journey Church and its wonderful members for the amazing gift to purchase a truck. This will allow us to provide more food to people who seek help from our pantry. Thank you, thank you.

  • We would like to send hearts and a big thank-you to whoever cleared out our driveway on the afternoon of Feb. 6. It is greatly appreciated.

    Pat and Steve Newkirk


  • Many thanks to SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) for bringing their free program to Clark-Pleasant Middle School wellness classes. The activities focused on discouraging distracted and impaired driving, as well as encouraging responsible driving habits. Students were able to compete in the Cruisin’ Cooler challenge using impaired vision goggles and tested a texting-and-driving simulator. With car crashes being the leading cause of death in teenagers, teaching safety and how to make good decisions is of utmost importance. We want to save lives.

    Sue Galloway, Rex Olds, Brad Holthaus and the Clark-Pleasant Middle School Wellness Department

  • A big heart to the plumbers from Beeson Mechanical Services who installed a new water heater for us on one of the coldest days of the year. Thanks for the great attitude and service despite the subzero temps.

    Dennis and Linda Cripe


  • We live in New Whiteland, and we want to give a special thanks to one very good neighbor who lives across the street. He goes above and beyond to help his neighbors when it snows. He takes his snow blade and clears their driveways for them. Thanks again.

  • I would like to thank the city of Franklin for doing a good job in clearing our streets so we can get through. Thank you to the Franklin police, the sheriff’s office, the county and the state for clearing the roads the best they could do. All of those guys need a big thank-you. They have all put in a lot of long hard hours without sleep or food sometimes. Thank you again.

  • A special thank-you to the Indian Creek FFA, area churches, Boy Scout Troop 218, Texas Roadhouse, sponsors, volunteers, family and friends. Without you, Carrie Clayburn’s Memorial Scholarship Dinner would not have been successful. It’s helpful to know that Indian Creek High School students will benefit from the scholarship and that Carrie will be remembered. Also, a special thank-you to the Daily Journal. They put several notices regarding the Carrie Clayburn dinner in the paper leading up to the dinner. It was in news briefs and Free Time. More people saw it this year than ever before. Thanks so much. God bless.

    John and Sheila Heidenreich, Chris, Jenny, Tegan and Liam Thompson



  • To the Franklin city street department for their poor excuse of plowing snow. The guy piled the snow so deep at the end of my drive, there was no possible way to get in or out.
