Hearts and high-fives to DualTech for their amazing donation to the Whiteland Community High School Athletic Department. Their gift will help fund a batting barn for the baseball and softball teams and will be such a wonderful resource for these athletes. DualTech and its owners are generous supporters of not only our schools but also our community, and we are so grateful for their amazing stewardship shown by their investment in our students. Your generosity is greatly and humbly appreciated.
Hearts to the folks at Johnson County Senior Services staff and drivers. During the past six weeks when I was unable to drive, they transported me all over the county, allowing me to continue with appointments and work. They were prompt and friendly. This is a wonderful service to our citizens. Thanks so much.
Many heartfelt thanks to Ann and Tom Hougham for being my agreeable, helpful neighbors throughout the 2.5-year issue of our property discrepancy. Thanks also to Gregg Cantwell of CKW Land Surverying for my survey and his excellent, helpful expertise in answering many questions. To Amanda Porter of Doyle Legal Group, great big hearts for her diligence in bringing this issue to a close. For their long and hard work at the Johnson County offices, thanks to Madison Thomas in mapping, Jan Richart, Johnson County auditor, and Kathleen Hash, county attorney, and last, but not least, my family.

We would like to send a huge heart to Sarah Brown and her staff at Apple Works for hosting the Great Chili Challenge last week benefiting Habitat for Humanity of Johnson County. The weather was beautiful, and Apple Works was a perfect venue for the event. We would also like to thank all of the participants for donating their tasty chili, the students from Franklin College for being “happy scoopers” and all the volunteers who made this event such a success. In addition, two more huge hearts to Doug Grant and Natalie Fellure for spending timeless hours coordinating and working the event.

Three big hearts to the fifth-grade Stars team teachers at Custer Baker Intermediate School. Thanks for the calls to each student’s family to see how the students were adjusting to the new school. What a great way to start out the year. Our family appreciates this so much.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped Emma Wade and her run for Bantam Queen. Without each and every one of you it would not have been possible. Hard work will pay off, and we would do it all over again to support the Bantam program. We would like to give a huge shout-out to our Bantam board members that so unselfishly donate so many hours of their own time in order to make this program the success it is: Derrick and Shannon Lacey, Laura and Chuck Ridpath, Shannon Burton, Anita Hancock, Amy Link and Keith Childers.
Sheila Horton and Emma Wade
We will miss our Bantam program next year. Good luck to all the board members, football players, cheerleaders and parents. Please do all you can to support this program for your youth, so it will continue to grow year after year.
