We know that our local nurses work hard and we want to celebrate them. That's why we partnered with Diamond Valley Federal Credit Union to salute our local nurses.

We asked you to tell us about the nurses in your life and your responses were phenomenal! We will be highlighting some of those entries here and on air and one lucky nurse will win an overnight stay at the French Lick Springs Resort.

Let's meet two of our nurses:

Jennifer Kirby

Jennifer was nominated twice. Once by Hank Kirby and once by Marissa Kirby. Jennifer works for Deaconess at the Toyota Family Medical Center. Marissa writes,

She averages 65 hours a week since Covid 19 has started and created an antigen testing program. Also a vaccination clinic on site at Toyota. All while caring for her special needs child.

Jennifer, thank you for all you do!

Liz Blake

Liz Blake was nominated by Misti Wedding. Liz works at St. Vincent Women's and Deaconess in Henderson in the labor and delivery department. Misit writes,

She has been a nurse for a year. While going through nursing school, she worked as Nurse Extern and raised 2 boys. One is now 9 and the other is 5. While in school, she graduated with honors. She is so dedicated to her career and all the doctors love her as well as the patients she cares for. So I say that she is what new nurses should be.

Liz, thank you for all you do!

Both Jennifer and Liz are in the running to win an overnight stay at the French Lick Springs Resort thanks to Diamond Valley Federal Credit Union. Today and every day we are grateful for the hardworking nurses in our community!

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
