    Memorial Day is approaching and with it, high-school graduations, summer vacations and even a well-known auto race.

  • Scary green alien trapped by government official

    Yep, you read that right. Aliens are threatening Perry County’s borders. No longer the stuff of science fiction, the metallic green aliens with large eyes, long flat backs and numerous legs have found us.

    But don’t run panicking into the streets just yet, scanning the skies for UFOs. Instead, look closely at your woodpiles, the bundles of firewood for sale, the beautiful ash trees shading your front yards.

    CANNELTON – The Perry County Parks and Recreation Board decided Wednesday to honor its late former president with two memorials.

    A third trail at Eagles Bluff Park, built a few years ago but never named, will be officially named the Dan Peter Trail.

    The trail starts on the north side of the park’s parking lot by the back gate.

    A Cherokee dogwood tree will also be planted in Peter’s honor at Mulzer Park in Derby, the town where Peter lived until his death April 18.

  • Getting in deep

    Drivers exhibited mixed responses when arriving at a flooded section of Dauby Lane Wednesday morning.

    Some stopped, considered the situation, then turned around and left.

    Others proceeded carefully through the pooling while yet others didn’t slow much or at all.
