    I use Facebook in a lot of ways. It keeps me in contact with friends, helps me learn about news events I might not otherwise know about and connects me with people who have news stories and feature story ideas. Separately, from a business point of view, it helps me promote my brewery and connects me with customers.

  • Solid waste fee should have been raised gradually

    The Perry County Solid Waste Management District has proposed raising its annual fee for disposal and recycling services from $32 to $45.

    That is a 40.6 percent increase and while it won’t have the same impact on area residents as Tell City’s 50.2 percent increase on its monthly water bills had this year, we think it’s still too big a raise at one time.

    It doesn’t take too many stops along Charlie Cunningham’s garden tour to figure out the Perry County man has a green thumb. He cares for a large garden, actually several gardens, behind his home off Old Indiana 37 southwest of Leopold. Rows of sweet corn are already waist high. They’ll mature later this summer and several families already have dibs on the roasting ears.

    TELL CITY – There’s no money to be made in trash disposal, at least not at the local government level, but still, the county’s waste management district is there to take it.

    The catch is, “we want your recyclables … we want more recyclables,” said Kenneth Smith, Perry County Recycling Management District director, because that’s what foots the bill for such sanitary services.

    TELL CITY—In the early 1980s there were three men’s softball leagues in Perry County. Many players played in more than one league and also played tourneys nearly every weekend, so they were often playing five days a week.
    In 1984 there were 10 teams in the Tell City Women’s Softball League and four more in Perry Central’s league.
    Then the number of teams of both genders slowly began to dwindle.

  • Cal Ripken League champions
