Thumbs-Up, Thumbs-Down – November 13



Thumbs up to the 22-member Team World Vision race team based at The Point in Seymour for raising more than $53,000 to benefit World Vision. The Christian humanitarian organization is dedicated to working with children, families and their communities worldwide to help solve the puzzle of poverty, providing things like clean water, nutritious food, education, medical care, economic opportunity and spiritual development. It’s the largest nongovernmental provider of clean water in the world and in the last three years has reached more than 12.7 million people with clean water. On Saturday, 12 team members completed a half-marathon in Seymour, while one completed a marathon. Team members are Susan Jablonski, Haley Anderson, Cheryl Bauman, Marnie Dirks, Libby Earley, Annie Ferret, Cortney Hillian, Gracie Lewis, Diana Nolan, Kelli Robinson, Natalie Smith, Brian Terrell, Amanda Wolf, Natalie Croquart, Skylar Earley, Nikki Eldridge, Tim Ferret, Chrissy Hubers, Julie McFall, Stephanie Montana, Carley Sanders and Jason Sanders.

Filling a need

Thumbs up to Kyle McIntosh, owner of Beauty from Ashes Tattoo Parlor in Crothersville, and his staff for holding a Tattoos 4 Coats event this week. Anyone who comes in the shop this week and purchases any size tattoo, Beauty from Ashes will purchase a brand-new children’s coat to give to a boy or girl in need. All coats will be ordered Sunday, and once they are shipped and received, the shop will post on its Facebook page about the pickup times and options.
