Thumbs-Up, Thumbs-Down – November 20


Remembering our heroes

Thumbs up to the veterans, veteran organizations, local schools and others for organizing Veterans Day events throughout the county. Veterans Day, which is Nov. 11 each year, is a good time to thank a veteran for their service and sacrifice. That’s something that could be done any day of the year, in fact, and even taken a step further by asking a veteran about their service.


Thumbs up to Crothersville seventh-grader Zoey Prince, who received a grant to open The Happy Tree Art Studio in Crothersville to provide people with an opportunity to express themselves artistically. Prince hopes to inspire others, no matter their age, to go for their dreams.

Above and beyond

Thumbs up to Heather, the manager of Parkview Apartments in Franklin, for going above and beyond helping my son, Austin. (Heather is from Seymour).

There are third-grader Gracie Singer, the elementary school’s Little Brave of the Month for good character; seventh-grader Jace Reaser, the middle school’s Student of the Month; and junior Grant Elliott, the high school Student of the Month for social studies.
