    LEOPOLD—Eight Perry Central players, including three repeat selections, were named to the All-PLAC football team in voting by league coaches Thursday.
      Spencer Wright made the team as a defensive lineman for the second year in a row.
    Senior offensive lineman Greg Coultas and running back Austin LeClere were also repeat selections, though LeClere made it as the punter last year and Coultas was an at-large selection last year.

  • COLUMN: Civil discourse and ideas

    By LEE HAMILTON
    Center for Congress

    The election of 2012 has called attention to how difficult it is for Americans to talk reasonably with one another about public policy challenges. Our civic dialogue — how we sort through issues and reason with one another — is too often lamentable.

  • COLUMN: A season of progress

    By VINCE LUECKE

    Autumn may be a time of the year when Mother Nature slows down but this fall has ushered in a season of construction and progress in Perry County. From Tell City to Cannelton, development, the planning process for development and new construction are under way.

    Tell City’s visitors center along Seventh Street is under roof and the framing process over the past couple of weeks has given an idea of what the structure will look like, at least its dimensions.

  • EDITORIAL: Don’t think your vote counts? Think again!

    A successful American government flows from an informed electorate. We are nearing the end of another historic campaign season. Historic not for any one single event, but historic because every vote we cast connects us to our past.

    Each time we step into the poll, we should be reminded of the fact that in our past every American did not have the right to vote. It is for that reason that every Hoosier should be disappointed when only 22 percent of Indiana’s 4.4 million registered voters cast a ballot during the primary election.

  • Gregg visits county

    Democrat gubernatorial candidate John Gregg and his running mate, Vi Simpson, visited Capers in Tell City Friday morning. It was one of several southwestern Indiana stops they made in the final days before Hoosier voters go to the polls Tuesday.
     

  • TNR program date change

    PERRY COUNTY – County residents are asked to help the Perry County Animal Shelter in controlling stray cats in the area with a trap, neuter and release program.

    The program is for stray cats only. Residents who are willing to capture a stray may take it to the shelter at 200 Herzeele St. in Cannelton between 5:30 and 6 a.m. Nov. 19.

    For $30 per cat, a service from Vanderburgh County will have the cats spayed or neutered.

    Cats will be ready for pickup at 10 a.m. Nov. 20 and then released where they were caught.
