Thanks for helping with softball broadcast

To the Editor:

I would like to take this time to let the community be aware that without these following individuals support the radio broadcast of the Class 2A softball state finals between Linton-Stockton and Wheeler would not have been possible. By listening in, you got to share in the dream and memories of these fine and outstanding young women and their families.

Whenever you cross paths with these people on the street or go in to patronize their business do me a favor and give them a hug, handshake or pat on the back because they gave so you could receive.

The businesses:

Jim Cary - The Grill

J.P. Meurer - J.P.'s fish & Chips

Heather King - Jiffy Treat

Rob Kendall - City Pest Control

Tom and Patty Jones - Linton Sporting Goods

Mark Angell - Angell's Food Center

Gene Martin - Martin Accounting

Richard Brown - Brown Insurance & Appraisal

Carla and Rodney Miller - Stoll's Country Inn

Jerry and Gayle Margraf - The Old Bank and McDonalds of Linton

I would like to thank Jim Tibbett for donating surveyor stakes for signs.

In closing I would like to possibly answer a few questions. Yes, I did try to get the game on our "Linton" station (which is located in Vincennes and the tower is in Bruceville) but due to St. Louis Cardinals baseball game being played on Friday and Saturday the same time our softball team played they wouldn't cancel the Cardinal game.

Lastly, Jon Montgomery, from WNDI (who I heard did an outstanding job, which I knew he would) had prior commitment to Shakamak's baseball semistate game on Saturday so that is why he could only do Friday's game.

If you would like a copy of the Linton-Wheeler game, contact Jon at WNDI phone 268-6322, the cost is $20. I hope you enjoyed the game. I know I did.

Concert was a success because of lots of help

To the Editor:

A letter of thanks! My cup runneth over.

I'm overwhelmed with gratitude to my friends who attended the concert at the First Church of God, this past Sunday night.

The warmth of Christian love is so uplifting that I'm still walking on air. You are all a good example of what Christian fellowship is all about. I'm thrilled to be part of this special family.

I wish to thank all of you who helped make this program a success.

Special thanks goes to:

The Greene County Daily World

May's Flowers in Angell's Store

Lamar's Imaging

And all the other businesses who allowed us to leave the fliers that advertised the concert.

And I would like to thank my church as a whole for allowing me to have my concert there. A very special thanks to a gracious and Godly lady and dear friend, Shirley Barry. Her extraordinary talented piano accomplishment help me so much. I couldn't have done it without her.

And I have a few more people of the church I would like to thank too. For their encouragement and assistance in many ways for the past few weeks, of which I could have just sat down and given up, but they wouldn't let me. I won't name them, because I might forget someone, but you all know who you are.

My deepest and most grateful "thanks" to all who were part of that very special day.

Linda Weyer
