‘Due to your stupidity ...’
Barb Middleton of Greentown sends a Jeer to whomever removed the October editions of the Greentown Grapevine from businesses downtown:
“What a childish and thoughtless act! If you didn’t like an article that appeared in the paper or are mad about the school taking over the paper, you could have written a letter to the editor to appear in the November issue.
“I paid for an ad in memory of our son, Larry, and intended to pick up four or five copies to send to out-of-town relatives. But due to your stupidity, I’m unable to do so.
“Also, many business people paid for ads and are not reaping any benefit from them.
“Shame on you!”
One-and-done was wonderful
Jeannie Townsend of Kokomo sends this Cheer for the Highway Half Marathon and 5K:
“What a great day! I want to give a big shout-out to all the planners and volunteers of this one-time event. We don’t fully realize the time it takes to plan an event like this. This was in the making for a year.
“Greg and I did the half marathon, and we both agree that from packet pickup, parking, start and finish lines, food, awards and course volunteers, we did not encounter any problems.
“Traffic was managed by the city, community members, clubs, schools, cross country teams, and Boy Scouts came out to support water stops, participants and the start and finish lines. McGonigal’s, Price Auto and Morning Star Church opened their parking lots and facilities.
“We are lucky we have people with vision in this city. We are lucky we have a city government ready to support these visions.
“Thank you to all the planners, volunteers, city government, businesses, city employees and Morning Star Church! The Highway Half was a first-class event that Greg and I are happy we participated in.”
