  • Many thanks to the strangers who helped me rescue a young kitten at the intersection of Emerson Avenue and County Line Road on Sept. 20. I also want to thank Jackie Ferguson, leader of Greenwood Middle School 4 Paws Club, and the Southside Animal Hospital.

  • A golf bag full of hearts to the Pay It Forward Gals and Legends Golf Course. Thank you so much for the wonderful donation to Christian Help. Monies are critical to all social services, and this donation is a particular blessing. Thank you to Hilliard Lyons and Heartland Bank as well for being sponsors. You all do wonderful work with this outing, and we appreciate your giving hearts.

  • Beautiful smiles and hearts to Franklin Family Dentistry for donating toothbrushes to place in Christian Help Inc.’s homeless bags. These are much-needed daily care items for our homeless and often the last thing purchased due to lack of finances. Thank you for honoring our clients with your donation.

  • Thanks Meg Jones and Richard Goss of Richards Kitchen and Market for bringing wonderfully fresh seafood to Johnson County and Franklin. Wow! Until you opened the market, it was very difficult to find any fresh seafood unless we traveled to Indianapolis. I encourage everyone to check it out.

  • On Sept. 12, I was going east on Whiteland Road. It was raining, and since we hadn’t had rain recently the pavement was slick. I lost control of my car and ran off the road, hitting a telephone pole and ended in a ditch. A wonderful couple, the Pierces, were following me and stopped to see if I was all right. They called Greenwood police. The Greenwood policeman was so helpful. A young man directed traffic around the scene. My son-in-law, Frank Downton, was there to help. My car was totaled, but I was blessed and am OK. My sincere thanks to all who helped.

  • Neighbors in the Southbrook addition (in Franklin) have been extremely grateful to Nancy Bunch, a receptionist in the highway department, for assisting in addressing a situation that has existed for five years since the flood regarding an abandoned property in the 100 block of Terrace Court, which is in a state of total disrepair: mold in the house, gutters hanging from the roof, thistles growing up through the deck and throughout the backyard, and raccoons in the attic. Neighbors have been mowing the front lawn. The backyard situation has become so extreme that Nancy has helped, each time the grass reaches 30 inches high, by contacting a company that must then use a bushhog. Thistles are rampant and are now appearing in abundance in surrounding yards. The situation would be intolerable without her help, which is greatly appreciated by all in the neighborhood.

  • Hearts, hearts and more hearts to The Center Grove Marching Band for their band camp food drive, Karen Etchison for her donation of food, Macy Detty for her birthday party food collection and the Center Grove and Whiteland high school football fans for their donations to the Center Grove Alternative Academy’s CARE Pantry. This food was received at times when our shelves were nearly bare. The thoughtfulness and generosity of our community is what has helped keep the CARE Pantry open for nearly four years now.

  • Thank you David Downey and the young couple who stopped on Roberts Road in Trafalgar to help last Saturday  afternoon. God bless you.
