  • COLUMN: Stabbed in the front by friends

    BY Vince Luecke, Editor

    I’ve been a little stressed lately, for a lot of reasons. Some of the causes were beyond my control, but the way I’ve handled the situations and the stress they’ve caused me was in my control. It still is.
    So, let this column serve as a public confession of sorts. I’ve done a lousy job recently of dealing with challenging times, including circumstances when I’ve felt mistreated or had my feelings hurt.

  • It’s almost 4-H fair time

    Renate Jobst, Purdue Extension, GUEST COLUMNIST

    It’s almost fair time, and you know what that means. It’s time to see Perry County kids at their very best.
    It’s a time for members to highlight some of what they have learned during their 4-H year. Hundreds of youth from across Perry County and surrounding areas will exhibit projects. It’s a great time to see kids show off their talents and see kids who make a difference in their community.

  • COLUMN: ‘Green Lantern’ goofy, childish but still entertaining

    By ERIC HARRIS, Film Review

    The comic-book-movie train speeds on with by far the strangest comic creation to hit the screen this summer, “Green Lantern.”

    Weird isn’t always good, but the odd elements of “Green Lantern” make the film stand out a bit, even if the film does get too goofy at times because of it. Overall, despite its flaws, “Green Lantern” still ends up being an entertaining movie.

  • COLUMN: Take advantage of free summer lunch program

    MARGARET BUTLER, Guest Columnist

    Free lunch? Its true! Many seem unaware that the summer lunch program in Tell City is for everyone. That is, everyone age 18 and younger may come and eat free lunch Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Evangelical United Church of Christ on Tenth Street.

  • COLUMN: The value of teaching respect

    By VINCE LUECKE, Editor

    I don’t have children, but I’m around nephews and nieces who for the most part are polite and considerate young people. That’s a credit to their parents.

    As we all know, civility among children and adults isn’t as universal as it once was. We have road rage, salty language that would leave a pirate red-faced and people of all ages who lack patience, compassion and general regard for others.

  • COLUMN: Answer easy to ‘Why here?’

    By KASSI HENNING HARPENAU, Guest Columnist

    When people ask me, “Why Perry County?” the answer is easy, because it’s my home!

    I have lived in Perry County since I was 3 years old and I loved every minute of growing up here. I have fond memories of playing softball games, wading in Windy Creek, picnicking at the local parks, going for bike rides around town, swimming at JFK Pool, Girl Scout camp at Camp Koch, and many more!
