Hearts and darts

DANVILLE — Here are some of the good — and not so good — things readers noticed around the area recently:

Mary Thompson, chairperson of Danville’s Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. celebration, sends hearts to “the many helped people to make Martin Luther King Day special.

“Special thanks to the Martin Luther King Celebration Committee who helped to make our two-day celebration a success. Your dedication, commitment, love and support were greatly appreciated.

“Thanks to Pastor Randy Robinson and St. James United Methodist Church for making us feel so welcome and to the youth group and its coordinator for providing lunch for us.

“Hearts to the Rev. D.L. Williams, Second Baptist Church and the Rev. Roland Brown of the CME Church. We thank you for allowing us to use your churches for our rehearsals.

“Hearts to Bret, Rickey, Mrs. Wilson, mass choir, musicians, ushers, marchers and to all of you, our friends and supporters who enabled us to present to Carly D. Kirk a $4,000 scholarship and to Dionne Lipscomb a grant in the amount of $500.

“We really appreciate all of you for helping us to improve human relations in the city of Danville.

“Again, thanks, one and all. God bless.”

Kam Bolser Wells of Danville sends darts to Danville officials.

“I think it’s terrible that the city or whoever is doing the subway project is not doing any maintenance to the alleys nearby. The alley between Collett and Baldwin streets going south on the west end is terrible. You can’t even get to our house without parking and walking. It’s kind of strange that the alley between Baldwin and Rogers streets gets fixed, but not ours never has been. We need to be able to get to ours driveways and houses, also.

“Darts to whoever is taking on this project on. The work also is messing up all of the yards nearby. We can’t even have enough space to fix what needs to be done out front. Our house looks like it could fall over into the big hole that use to be the subway at anytime.”

Wilmetta Feezor of Indianola sends hearts to “my family — Dan, Jenny Janet and Garrett Feezor; Nancy and Wesley Grimes, Samantha and her friend Eric; and Lori Feezor Ribble, Mikah and Noah for giving me an 80th birthday party at the Indianola Methodist Church fellowship hall on Feb. 3.

“Dan and Jenny supplied the food buffet. Nancy supplied the cake, and Lori provided the decorations. More than 78 people attended the party — relatives, friends and former and present pastors.

“I told the group that the church was my second home because I have attended the church for 78 of my 80 years. I started playing piano in the church when I was 13 and in the eighth grade. That’s a lot of last chords.

“I wish to thank everyone for their gifts and cards but, most of all, the outpouring of love from all who told me that all these years I have made them laugh with my funny stories, jokes and poems.

“It made me feel wonderful to know I can make people laugh. Thanks, everyone, and God bless you all!”
