Saturday Sound – April 16

•If a tree falls in the woods and no one hears it, does it make a sound? If hunters take the only two minks in the county, will they profit from their fur?

•Read in the paper about a new sit-down restaurant. How about IHOP or Denny’s?

•I want to give the local police department a shoutout for all their hard work and sleepless nights. Every time I have run into a police officer in Greenfield, they are polite and courteous. They put their lives on the line to help keep my family safe. I don’t think they get the credit they deserve from people, and I just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work.

•Someone has been using weapons and cannons or explosives in southeastern Hancock county almost every weekend. It sounds like it is miles away, but it rattles my house and windows. Please have some respect for others. It gets very obnoxious really fast.

Have been in many libraries in many different cities and states but have to say that the Greenfield library is the noisiest I have ever been in. Wow, can we keep it down a bit?

•When will Greenfield get a Market District?

•A standing bravo to Dance East Ballet Company and its director, Dana Hart, for a wonderful production of “Peter and the Wolf and More!” Hart and her ballet academy have upped our community’s cultural bar by bringing concert dance to Greenfield.

•Why is it the city/county/state cannot repair a street or road without leaving a hump or a dip?

•When is Greenfield going to get a coffee shop?

I feel like Greenfield is THE hidden-gem community in Indiana! Our schools and library are amazing, and it’s great to be so close to the interstate with very low crime. Glad we ended up here!

•Take me out to the ballgame for some sun, baseball and fireworks.

What is that smell just north of town I catch most mornings on 70 East?
