Kisses and hisses

■ KISSES and a fond farewell to Lynn Clark who died last Friday at the age of 79. He had the thankless job of serving as president of the Jennings Northwest Regional Utilities board, doing "mop-up" work after the mess left by the utility's disastrous and doomed sanitary sewer expansion project.

■ KISSES and a fond farewell to Rachael Shaw who died Friday at the age of 40. She did much with children as a youth league coach and ran an interesting race for Jennings County Clerk in 2018.

■ KISSES to the many newspapers across America, including the Plain Dealer & Sun, for dropping their paywalls to allow nonsubscribers to access their websites to get important information on the coronavirus crisis.

■ HISSES to the dispute between Jennings County Clerk Amy Thompson and Auditor Tessia Salsman about how to transfer funds and file reports before the two offices. As elected officials, they owe it to their constituents to work between themselves to come up with a mutually acceptable arrangement.

■ KISSES to Kathy Moore and the Juliottes club for their good work in bringing a little free library with good books for both children and adults to Country Squire Lakes.

■ KISSES to the North Vernon Rotary Club for donating $500 to Senior Resources of Jennings County to help purchase a new 15-seat van for the Senior Center. Kisses also to all others who have donated or will in the near future.
■ KISSES to area churches for finding ways to conduct worship services online.

■ KISSES to the FDA's upcoming rollout on March 30 of a new COVID-19 test that can detect infections within 45 minutes.

■ KISSES to Richard Winegarden of Seymour on being named the Volunteer Conserva­tionist of the Year by the Jennings County Soil and Water Conserva­tion District. Kisses to Kebe and Diana Sheets of Osgood, owners of Sheets Tree Farm, on being named Conservationists of the Year for their management of timbered acreage in Jennings County.

■ KISSES to the blooming forsythia plants, Easter lilies, other flowers and budding greenery now on display in Jennings County. Spring has sprung, and it won't be stopped by the coronavirus!

■ KISSES to the Quilts of Valor Foundation and the River­town Quilters of Lawrenceburg for awarding a red, white and blue crafted quilt to Frank Biehle of North Vernon. Biehle is a Korean War veteran who was injured in the line of duty, earning the Purple Heart.

■ KISSES to getting to watch many classic sporting events from past years on many of the television channels scrambling to make up for the absence of live events. Kisses especially to the programs that have been edited to take out most of the "dead time" between the action sequences.

■ HISSES to all the work it takes to tie up loose ends before retirement.
