BOONVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - The deadline to apply for COVID relief grant funding from the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs expired this past week.
As of Thursday, businesses in Boonville were eagerly awaiting that money.
Donna Ellis, owner of Yesterdaze, said that running a restaurant has been difficult over the last year.
“Sometimes you just want to sit down and cry,” she said. “But that doesn’t help much.”
Ellis has been running Yesterdaze for 20 years, but even her most loyal customers have needed to stay safe in a pandemic.

OWENSBORO, Ky. (WFIE) - In what they call an attempt to be more environmentally friendly, Rosewood Cemetery in Owensboro is using new electric mowers.
Right now, the mowers are being used on a trial basis to see if they’re a good fit.
The cemetery says the new equipment will help save on fuel costs and can mow 24 hours a day.
“We are saving on fuel because we are going to use solar panels with very little electric,” explained Robert Gardner, director of operations at Rosewood Cemetery. “We are going to try and use mostly solar panels and completely go green, and that was our goal when we saw this.”
