    My name is Bruce Collins and I am the founder of Interstate Paranormal Investigations, otherwise known as IPI. I am writing to let you know how extremely proud I am of every single member of IPI as we have just completed a two-week fundraiser for a local grass roots organization known as the Perry County Little Warriors, which was established to assist five children from Perry County who are battling different types of childhood cancer and other chronic diseases.

  • COLUMN: Tell City plan isn’t practical

    A Nov. 5, 2012 News article tells us the mayor and city council have grand plans to improve Tell City. We certainly need improvements. Paying outside experts for advice that our city management should be providing seems wasteful.

    We elect these people to run the city, but they can't make decisions without “expert advice.” Seems a little redundant to me.

  • COLUMN: One mouse is too many

    By VINCE LUECKE
    Editor

    I simply don’t like mice, especially in my house. But there are mice in New Boston and a few have tried to spend the winter in my house. The skirmish – a war would imply there are a lot of mice sneaking in and actually there aren’t – has been under way for a few weeks. I’ve won and sent several mice to the graveyard – er the field behind my house.

  • EDITORIAL: It’s time for polarization to end and governing to begin

    Probably television stations, which received giant amounts of political advertising revenue this year, are the only ones not glad that the U.S. elections are over. But since many of the races were close at the national and state levels, it will be interesting to see how the victors govern.

  • Concessionaires sought for Hoosier National Forest recreation areas

    BEDFORD – The Hoosier National Forest will soon advertise a prospectus for the operation of recreation facilities, including Hardin Ridge, Indian-Celina, and Tipsaw Campgrounds.

    The permit holder is responsible for all operations and specified maintenance of the three recreation facilities. Fees collected from users go to the permit holder, with a percentage returned to the government.

  • Correction

    The News erroneously reported Oct. 25 that Jim Carter, president of the Humane Society of Perry County, had visited 72 Indiana counties as of Oct. 18 in a quest to have surplus state funds distributed to counties. He had contacted county auditors or deputy auditors in those counties by then.

  • Perry County SWCD accepting supervisor applications

    CANNELTON – Perry Countians interested in conservation of soil, water and other related natural resources may want to consider a position with the Perry County Soil and Water Conservation District.

    The district is accepting applications for an elected supervisor position. The individual would serve as an elected district supervisor for a three-year term, beginning in January 2013. Jim Fiedler’s term will expire and he has chosen not to run for supervisor.
