    I was chided last year for not reminding readers in time about the approach of St. Nicholas Day. Not so this year. St. Nicholas is coming Dec. 6, so there is well more than a week to make plans to take part in a great pre-Christmas tradition. Just don’t forget to put out your shoe the evening before the big day.

  • Tell City’s lions should return to city’s depot

    We were happy to hear the news, reported in Thursday’s Perry County News, that money has been raised to repair the century old Venetian lions fronting City Hall. The concrete lions are in rough shape after moving location over the years.

    We’d like to suggest that once repaired, they be moved to sit outside the Tell City Depot on Seventh Street. The old Depot is no longer with us but the lions were originally intended to be sentinels that greeted guests or residents returning by train.

    CANNELTON – A Tobin Township lake continues to protect farmland, homes, roads and bridges from flooding, as it has for more than 30 years. It also continues to carry a high-hazard designation that worries local officials.

    That fact drew U.S. Forest Service representatives to the October meeting of the Perry County Soil and Water Conservation District for a status update on the lake. Also present were county commissioners, Randy Kleaving and Larry James.
