Here are this week’s hearts and darts.

From the readers:

Hearts to Jackson Energy Authority for receiving Tennessee Valley Authority’s Green Power Switch Leadership Partner Award for Excellence in Clean Energy Initiatives. JEA was recognized for its work with the one megawatt solar farm, support of the Green Power Switch program, use of compressed natural gas in fleet vehicles, and waste water treatment. Jackson is blessed to have a utility that is a statewide leader in clean energy. — Jackson City Councilman Ernest Brooks II, District 3

I was traveling from Martin to Lousiana on April 6 when I encountered serious car trouble in Jackson. I managed to make it to Autobody America off Old Humboldt Road, and was lucky to find a very nice man named Chris Edwards there, who worked with me to diagnose the problem. However, due to it being a mechanical problem instead of a body problem, he was kind enough to drive my car and me over to Best One Tire in the Columns area. Even though they could not help me either, they were very prompt and efficient and very nice people with which to deal. I had to call my hometown wrecker service, Harpers Wrecker Service, that also did a great job. Hearts to all of these great businesses! — Paula Bell, Martin

Thirty eight big hearts, one for every year of my employment, with The Jackson Sun! What a wonderful ride this has been. I was always proud to say that I worked at The Jackson Sun. I have had wonderful supervisors over the years, and co-workers who were like family. I’m very thankful for the opportunity I had to work at The Sun, and look forward to what the future holds. — Debbie Morris, Mercer


The Knoxville News Sentinel on Pat Summitt:

Pat Summitt has stepped aside as coach of the University of Tennessee women’s basketball team after 38 glorious years, but she remains at the pinnacle of her profession.

When the news broke that Summitt would leave the Lady Vols’ bench, accolades began pouring in — from former players, coaching colleagues, fans and even the president of the United States.
