The attendees enjoyed a delicious meal of Italian-American food.President, Matt Perleberg, spoke of the changes the organization made in order to meet emergent needs in the community. “We realized that having a once a year grant cycle is just not enough for the community,” stated Perleberg. He spoke of the organization’s ability to allocate funds for emergent needs in the community. Perleberg also talked about another focus for United Way of Franklin County, ALICE (asset limited, income constrained employed) families. “Currently, in Franklin County, 23% of the households are living paycheck to paycheck, we are working to offer financial stability classes, and other programs to help those ALICE families in our community,” Perleberg said. Ultimately, Perleberg let the crowd know that United Way of Franklin County wants to be the organization that works to solve community problems; the organization that brings agencies together and encourage programs and services that work to improve the lives of the citizens here.Allocations Chair Don Copland spoke to the crowd about the allocations process. He reiterated the need to be more fluid in giving and addressing emergent needs in the community. He encouraged agencies that were present to communicate their needs to UWFC. “If you have a special project, or a high priority need that arises, let us know, we may be able to help. We want to know your needs, so please be sure to communicate them to us,” Copland encouraged.The employers that hold payroll campaigns were recognized by Robin Lee, Campaign Committee Chair. Lee stated, “We rely on the generosity of their employee and we couldn’t do what we do, their donations go such a long way to help us with our mission.” Those employers recognized were Bath State Bank, FCN Bank, the Franklin County Community School Corporation, First Financial Bank, George’s Pharmacy, Owens Corning, Jim True Ford, and Margaret Mary Health.Executive Director Kelly Bulmer honors Volunteer of the year, Beth Heis Photo: Deb Blank Batesville Herald TribuneExecutive Director, Kelly Bulmer, recognized Volunteer of the Year, Beth Heis. “She’s the kind of volunteer you want.

She described Heis as a true community servant and highlighted her volunteerism for the United Way of Franklin County.Bulmer then went on to honor a group of students from the student board that put in hard work on their WATCH Center project. “It was tough not to recognize a group that worked incredibly hard this year, many of those hours during their Christmas break. Their passion for the project and seeing it through was amazing and refreshing” stated Bulmer. She recognized three of the student board members as Volunteers of the Year, Jenna Watterson; Senior, Kyle Seibert; Junior, and Taylor McCreary; Junior received certificates for their accomplishment.A certificate was presented to outgoing board member Robin Lee with six years of service and outgoing student member Jenna Watterson with three years of service.Bulmer closed the meeting by thanking all in attendance for the role that they play in supporting the United Way of Franklin County.

They range from Dalmatians, bulldogs and poodles to less familiar breeds such as the löwchen, Norwegian lundehund and Xoloitzcuintli — that’s “shoh-loh-eetz-KWEENT’-lee,” a hairless breed from Mexico.Backstretch the bulldog took in the scene as she waited to compete. Just 12 weeks after having a litter of puppies, she was back in competitive shape and ready to show off with owner and handler Valery Scrimo of Saratoga Springs, New York. Backstretch did fine, too, winning a ribbon for excellence. Daytime judging chooses the best dog in each breed. Those winners begin facing off Monday night at Madison Square Garden, where best in show will be named Tuesday night.___ As soon as the judge pointed to Bono, he jumped onto a podium in the middle of the ring, almost as if declaring he knew where his place should be.“He has something that makes people look at him,” handler Taffe McFadden said. “He just stares ‘em down.”8:20 p.m.Bourbon the whippet has won the hound group at the Westminster dog show.Her head perfectly still as she strode the green carpet at Madison Square Garden, the 4-year-old whippet was a quick choice Monday nightight. She advanced to the best-of-seven final ring Tuesday night, when best in show will be chosen.Bourbon won her breed last year, and now has a chance to become the first whippet since 1964 to become America’s top dog.The Garden was mostly full to see judging in the hound, toy, nonsporting and herding groups.Among the hounds was Relic the Azawakh, a new breed to Westminster this year. A borzoi, beagle and Afghan hound also drew enthusiastic crowd support.3:45 p.m. “Step one,” McFadden said. “Let’s get on that Garden stage again. Let’s see.”1:25 p.m.Thor the star bulldog has taken his first winning steps at the Westminster Kennel Club show.Thor has quite a following after more than 25 million viewers saw him win the National Dog Show televised on Thanksgiving Day.With the crowd cheering him around the ring this time, the sturdy 2-year-old born in Peru earned a best of breed ribbon. He advanced to the nonsporting group judging Monday night at Madison Square Garden. Handler Eduardo Paris appreciated the audience support.“Many people came to see him,” Paris said after the early victory.12:55 p.m.Tiny dogs are having their day at the Westminster Kennel Club show.Pomeranians, papillons and other toy dogs are in the rings Monday, as are terriers and the diverse category of dogs known as “non-sporting” breeds. The Latest: Conrad the Sheltie makes Westminster final ring The 6-year-old Sheltie won the herding group Monday nightfht.He’ll join Siba the standard black poodle, Bono the Havanese and Bourbon the whippet on Tuesday night with a chance to become best in show at Madison Square Garden.9:55 p.m.Siba the black standard poodle has pranced and advanced at the Westminster Kennel Club.Siba topped a pair of top pooches to win the nonsporting group Monday night at Madison Square Garden. She also proved an ultimate truth at any dog show — no matter what, a fancy-cut poodle is always a contender. 12:25 p.m.What makes a championship obedience dog? The Westminster Kennel Club knows it by Heart. A Labrador retriever named Heart won Westminster’s obedience contest Sunday, extending her sweep of the five-year-old competition.With that, handler Linda Brennan says they don’t plan to enter the contest next year. “I think it’s only fair” to step aside, said Brennan, an obedience trainer from Columbia, New Jersey. A rock star as usual, Bono is heading back Madison Square Garden. The Havanese named after U2’s frontman won best in breed at the Westminster Kennel Club show Monday. Immediately after, he was swarmed by dog show judges-in-training eager to inspect the superb example of the national dog of Cuba.“On top of his conformation being so on point with the breed specification, he has the joie de vivre attitude,” handler Taffe McFadden said. “He loves it. He is in it.”Bono was rated the No. 1 show dog in the country last year, but he’s yet to fetch the top prize at the circuit’s two most heralded shows. Bono was runner-up at Westminster last year to King, a wire fox terrier, and also finished second to Thor the bulldog at the National Dog Show on Thanksgiving Day. Thor is among the favorites this year at Westminster, and won his best in breed earlier in the day.Bono’s next step is the best-in-group competition Monday night at Madison Square Garden. If he wins the toy group, another showdown with Thor could be on deck. Almost 4, Siba performed to perfection. She did a little bow to the crowd, stood absolutely still while in front of the judge and then glided around the ring.Maybe she was boosted by her pregame meal. No, it wasn’t some specialized food for show dogs. Instead, she devoured a grilled chicken from McDonald’s.Siba beat out popular bulldog Thor, who won the National Dog Show televised on Thanksgiving Day, and Colton the schipperke that won this group last year in New York.Siba reached the best-of-seven final ring Tuesday night, when best in show will be chosen. Bono the Havanese and Bourbon the whippet won their groups earlier in the evening.9:10 p.m. February 10, 2020 Bono the Havanese will get another chance to become America’s top dog.Silky and flowing, the 3-year-old named for U2’s frontman won the toy group Monday night at the Westminster Kennel Club.Bono finished second overall at Westminster last February, then was the runner-up last November in the National Dog Show.Bono was ranked as the country’s top show dog last year. But the No. 1 dog coming into Madison Square Garden doesn’t always leave on top.Best in show will be chosen Tuesday night. Bourbon the whippet earlier won the hound group to reach the best-of-seven final ring. The competition requires dogs to sit, stay, retrieve a toy on command and stick by their handlers’ sides while walking around other people, among other skills. Finalists used to do complex six-minute routines of their own devising, but Westminster changed things up this year to align more closely with other obedience trials. Heart, age 7, executed the maneuvers with her tail wagging.“She loves this environment — she really does. She finds it very exciting and very stimulating,” Brennan said. Don’t lose heart, owners of everyday dogs: Even Heart misbehaves from time to time outside the ring.“She has her little naughty habits,” Brennan said with a smile.
