Thumbs-Up, Thumbs-Down – September 28


Dandy dancing

Thumbs-up those who dancers who participated in the sixth annual Dancing with the Seymour Stars on Saturday night at Celbrations in Seymour. They are Alexa Ulrey and Brandon Joray, Bri Roll and Alex Cazares, Shintaro Takeuchi and Sarah Arnold, Ana De Gante and Francisco Galicia, Kelley Gillaspy and Matt Nieman, Theresa and Rob Schwartz, Andrew and Ashley Dec and Shawn Charlton and Katrina Hardwick. Another thumbs-up to everyone who attended or contributed to the event, which raised $101,793. That money will help provide programming for youth Boys & Girls Club of Seymour and Seymour Main Street improve the downtown. With this year’s total, the event has no raised more than $500,000.

No horsing around

Thumbs-up to Mia Prewitt and Macy Casner, both of Seymour, for their efforts to promote the girls-only weeklong horse camps each summer at SpringHill Camps at 2221 W. State Road 258. Girls attending the camps are taught how to ride horses in an arena setting and go on trail rides. They also learn how to act, be safe around a horse and how to groom and saddle a horse. Prewitt and Casner made poster boards promoting the camps in the hopes of increasing attendance.

Promoting awareness

Thumbs-up to members of the Teens for Change program at Brownstown Central Middle School. The students recently received permission from Jackson County Commissioners to place a Clothesline Project on the fence of the courthouse lawn from Oct. 24-31. The Clothesline will contain T-shirts representing the victims of domestic violence this past year in Indiana. Turning Point Domestic Violence Services of Jackson County is organizing a project similar to one that’s been held outside Cummins Seymour Engine Plant on East Fourth Street Road in October of each year since 2013. The projects are designed to promote awareness of domestic violence and dating violence.

Stopping completely

Thumbs-down to motorists who apparently don’t know that a stop sign means bringing your vehicle to a complete story before proceeding on their way into an intersection.
