Letters

  • LETTER: Generosity for Warriors for Rob was heartwarming
  • LETTER: Organizations help beautify Tell City High School

    If you have visited or driven by the Tell City Junior-Senior High School campus recently, you may have noticed our new street banners. The beautiful banners were purchased through a grant awarded by the Perry County Community Foundation and installed by the Tell City Electric Department. We would like to publicly thank these two organizations for their deeds.

  • LETTER: Many helpers fill kids’ backpacks with food

    The Perry County Weekend Backpack Program completed another year delivering food to area school children during the 2013-2014 school year.

    Each Friday more than 110 students from Cannelton, Perry Central and Tell City-Troy Township School corporations participated. A total of 3,170 bags containing individualized servings for six meals for the weekend were purchased from Tri State Food Bank and distributed Fridays throughout the school year. Major financial support came from Perry County United Way, Perry County Community Foundation, and the Schreiber Family Charities.

  • LETTER: SIP should stick to delivering electricity

    I wonder where Southern Indiana Power got the idea that I want to be their stooge and help them lobby the government for the right to continue spewing the massive amounts of pollutants from their filthy coal-fired power plants.

    It sure did get that idea somewhere, because in the past week I have gotten junk postal mail, junk email and junk phone calls from Southern Indiana Power, all asking me to tell the government I want more pollution instead of cleaner air.

  • Thank you, Tell City Little League supporters

    On behalf of the Tell City Cal RipkenLittle League, as well as the children of the community, we would like to thank our sponsors for your generous contributions toward our program.

    Not only are the youth enjoying the sport of baseball, they are also learning many valuable lessons by being a member of a team. Your generosity has provided our league with needed equipment and has enabled our players to participate in area tournaments.

    In addition, your contributions will allow us to make the necessary improvements to have a better equipped facility.

  • EPA regulations will cost you more money

    In June, the Environmental Protection Agency released regulations to limit carbon-dioxide emissions at existing power plants.

    If these regulations remain as written, the result will be more expensive electricity for Southern Indiana Power members.

  • Business ignoring promise to control dust

    On June 26, 2012, I attended a zoning meeting for Dale Sprinkle to obtain a special exception request through the zoning office on property that adjoins ours. This was for a commercial recreational outdoor development, Eagles Wings Zipline.

  • School fans help students, communities such as Perry Central’s remain successful

    I thank the Lord for having led me to become a teacher, a sports fan and an entertainer.

    Thanks to folks who enjoy my music at concerts and at gigs, and thanks to those fantastic Perry Central fans, coaches and players who honored me at a ballgame Jan. 25. That I shall never forget.       

    I also enjoyed teaching my former precious students, and I met many wonderful folks in my teaching career. Thanks to former students for saying to me now that I was an excellent teacher.

  • United Way thankful for Stuff the Bus help

    Thank you, thank you, thank you to Wal-Mart, all our dedicated volunteers and to all the generous donors who helped create another successful Stuff the Bus school supply drive July 25- 26.    

    On behalf of the United Way of Perry County, I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the residents of our community who helped support our eighth annual Stuff the Bus school-supply drive for students in need. Donations of much-needed school supplies were received for children who may not otherwise have had the provisions needed to start the new school year.

  • LETTER - Caring hearts makes camp a special place

    Activities are a huge part of Anderson Woods summer camp. A not-for-profit summer camp for those with special needs, the things that campers do and take part in are often the heart and soul of camp.

    However, unlike your typical summer camp, Anderson Woods puts a large emphasis on the steps that lead up to an activity. A common and popular slogan that is thrown around by staff is that the importance is in the “process not the product.”
