  • Why the negative spin against Clinton?

    I am responding to the March 24 editorial in The Perry County News that makes references to several articles written about the Clintons. I found the editorial appalling and a one-sided approach to this upcoming election.

    Your paper seems to be in lockstep with most of the national media in an obvious attempt to spin everything in a negative and biased way against the Clinton camp.

  • If you can't take the heat ...

    Stay out of the kitchen. I'm reminded of that old adage while catching hell for something in the paper. My backside has been warmed lately for a pair of stories. But that's nothing new really. I still hear complaints about stories published years ago, old grudges some people wear like chips on their shoulders.

  • Is the love affair over?

    If you watch any of the old television shows from the 1950s, one of the attractions is the "new cars" driven by the characters. Those '57 Chevys, '56 Caddies, '58 Fords, and '59 Vettes that are considered ultra-classics these days were the cars you bought right from the dealer's showrooms in those days.

    Today, they cost many times what they did then.

    One man's 17 years of devotion to woodcarving elicited oohs and ahs last week at Oakwood Health Campus in Tell City.

  • A possible origin of April Fools?

    While the precise origins of April Fool's Day remain a mystery, evidence exists to support the belief that it, or at least the basis for the current April Fool's Day, is at the very least, several centuries old.

  • Aspen Road home escapes serious fire damage

    GATCHEL - An afternoon fire Wednesday destroyed a small storage building and caused some damage to the Denny Hubert home at 14066 Aspen Road.

    A passerby noticed the smoke and flames and called for firemen. Anderson Township and Central Perry firefighters were at the scene for about an hour.
