Time for a special year-end, "Laurels only" edition of Darts and Laurels.
My first Laurel goes to Simmons College, the University of Louisville, Spalding University, JCTC and several local churches for partnering to make a college education possible for students who wouldn't otherwise be able to afford one. Under the plan, 25 students from some of the city's poorest Zip Codes will be selected to attend classes for free at Simmons for two years while living for free at Spalding. And after those two years, their credits will be transferable to U of L or another state school where they'll be able to earn their Bachelor's Degree.
My second Laurel goes to Henry Heuser Jr., President of the Henry Vogt Machine Company, for his persistent efforts in replenishing Louisville's downtown "tree canopy." For over a year, Mr Heuser has headed up an effort to gain funding to increase shade and decrease heat in the center city through the planting of new trees, and last week, he put his own money on the line by donating $7,500 to make sure the city's plan to plant 166 new trees by year's end wouldn't have to be cut back.
And finally, a Laurel goes to all of you. Without your participation, Point of View wouldn't be nearly as vital as it's been for the past ten-plus years, and I hope you'll all stick with us in 2013.
