Cheers for April 29

Happy birthday!

We moved to Brownstown 25 years ago on our quiet street with many great neighbors, but I have to brag about one in particular. Carolyn Hurt lived next door, but she always sent our daughters birthday cards. There’s something special about receiving a card in the mail. Hunter now lives in Barbados and Carolyn moved years ago, but she still sends a birthday card which arrives just in time. Kudos to Carolyn Hurt, such a blessing to this world.

very important people

Congratulations to the 36 students from Brownstown Central High School who were selected by staff members to attend the VIP breakfast on April 21 in the school cafeteria. The purpose of the event is to recognize students with their tutors in attendance for accomplishments or efforts that demonstrate excellence in attitude or accomplishments that have improved the class, school, or individual student. Congratulations also to the staff members, student supporters and others present.

Placement of the reel

Kudos to Charlotte Moss with Turning Point Domestic Violence Services in Jackson County, Kate Garrity with Child Care Network and Children’s Bureau in Seymour for handing out pinwheels to anyone who wants them to raise awareness that April is National Month prevention of child abuse. Windmills symbolize the playfulness and joy of childhood and convey the message that every child deserves the chance to be raised in a healthy, safe and nurturing environment.

Chairman of the committee

Kudos to Bret Cornn of Seymour for being named chair at the March meeting of the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency’s Physician Assistant Committee. The committee is a regulatory body made up of members appointed by the governor. The committee serves the state through its functions of approving license and renewal applications, disciplinary hearings, and rulemaking. Cornn has been a member of the five-person committee since his initial appointment in 2016. He has practiced family medicine for 24 years and is employed by Schneck Primary Care.


Kudos to Dr. Adam Jablonski of Schneck Obstetrics and Gynecology for reaching 2,000 deliveries on March 24. Schneck Medical Center recently recognized the doctor for this achievement on its Facebook page. Jablonski joined Schneck in August 2010.

pretty poppies

Well done to the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 89 in Seymour for organizing the Poppy Days, which will take place on May 13th. On that day, volunteers will set up at the corner of Second and Walnut streets in Seymour to hand out poppies for a donation, and there too will be donation boxes with poppies placed at local businesses. The poppy is the official family flower of the American Legion to commemorate soldiers who fought and died in war. The fundraiser supports veterans nationwide.
