... to the friendly staff at Wendy’s on 10th Street in Jeffersonville.
Let’s face it, good customer service is a rarity these days. Sadly, we have become accustomed to clerks who chat with co-workers while ringing up our purchases. As often as not, we don’t even get a thank-you when the transaction is complete.
That said, I have to give kudos to the staff at Wendy’s. They did their job well Thursday afternoon. The lady who took my order was friendly and helpful. The woman who took my money and gave me my change was friendly. She smiled and she said thank you. Finally, the young woman who gave me my food was cheerful, made eye contact, said thank you and told me to have a great day.
It really is the little things that count.

... to the workers at the Clark County Highway Department for the wonderful job they’ve done in keeping our roads clean through all the snow and ice we’ve had. I know what a big, tough job it is — I’ve done it.
Thanks again, fellows, and please keep up the good work.

... to Daniel Suddeath’s report on Rep. Todd Young’s vote to repeal health care reform.
He did some investigating and provided more depth to his report rather than simply quoting one source. Thanks, Daniel, for giving your readers a broader view of this issue.

... to the time and knowledge devoted by an area medical professional.
The Ann Rogers Clark chapter of the National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution had the pleasure and honor of having Nurse Practitioner Marilyn Wolpert, as our guest speaker at our January meeting on shingles, Zostavax and the services of the Walgreens Take Care Clinic. The information she provided was enlightening and dynamic.
We appreciate the fact that she gave up personal weekend time to come and address our group. Also thanks to Jill Johnson, with the Walgreens District Office, for covering Wolpert’s work time to make it possible for her to be our guest speaker on short notice.
