To the Editor:
Last article by Denny and Diana Brown and dear niece Angie Handlon.
This will be my last article in my honetown newspaper. My eyesight is dimming and my short-term memory is shortening. I will tip my Stetson and dance across the stage one last time with my dignity, honor and the love of my dear wife Diana. I bow to you, Switzerland County, as I see the light and hear the applause as in years before.
God Bless Vietnam Veterans and God Bless America.
Denny and Diana Brown and
Our Dear Niece Angie Handlon
To the Editor:
Sometimes in our busy lives we fail to take time to say "thank you" to those people who take time to make a difference in our lives and in the area in which we live.
We would like to thank Carolyn Miller and the Cemetery Commission for their hard efforts in revitalizing and restoring the cemeteries of Switzerland County. Their efforts have added not only beauty and the preservation of history, but also dignity for those buried in the grave sites of Vevay and throughout our county.
On a personal note, we would like to express our appreciation for their work on the Hunts Creek Cemetery located on our property on Highway 156. This cemetery has meant a lot to us in the past, being the final resting place for one of the early settlers of the Ohio Valley and his family.
Thank you, Carolyn, and those working with you for your diligence and hard work in this important endeavor.
We appreciate you so much.
Steve and Sharon Ward
Animal shelter needs
To the Editor:
Just wanted to write an FYI for everyone. Learning of the recent happening at the animal shelter and their need for supplies, my daughter, Teryn Hinman, who volunteers there frequently, got everyone in gear again.
Last year she and Cameron Boline and Teryn's grandparents, Floyd and Jeanette Knaus stood at the 4-way in East Enterprise to collect for the animal shelter. In 100 degree weather, they raised over $242 for them. So this year when the crisis broke, Teryn went into action again. With the help of Lauren Rose and Teryn's grandparents, they picked a Saturday morning in September. They made signs and raised $330.
She also brought to my attention the need for towels and blankets. So working for the spa/salon at Belterra Casino, I knew that we had a bunch of old robes that would have been great for the shelter to use. Belterra donated a truckload worth almost $800 to the shelter this year.
Teryn is 12 years old and has a heart of gold. I would like to commend her for her caring and generosity. I would like to thank her friends, Cameron and Lauren, and my parents for all of their help.
I would like to thank Belterra Casino and Amber Parham for helping me load all of the robes.
I would hope that everyone follows in Teryn's footsteps and helps take care of the animal shelters.
