  • Arts Night at City Hall a big hit

    An Evening of Arts event was held at City Hall on July 8, hosted by Tell City Regional Arts. A large crowd throughout the night enjoyed the displays of many talented local artists, as well as wine and beer sampling and light snacks.

    On behalf of Tell City Regional Arts Association, I would like to thank Mayor Jim Adams and the Tell City Common Council for allowing the event to be held once again in City Hall.

  • Forget the goofy typos

    Great column, Jake. (Insignificant stories steal more and more attention, June 5 issue). The world is falling apart around us, and so many folks are caught up in silly stuff.

    So Trump typed “covfefe” instead of coverage.  So what?  How many of us have written to our friends and sent out misspelled words, grammatical mistakes and other typos?  I agree with you; is this a national security issue like the Russian debacle?

    If typing covfefe instead of coverage is the worst of Trump’s sins, I would be delighted and relieved.

  • Rome’s Dogwood day great

    The 2017 Dogwood Festival at Rome was a wonderful success. We have so many people to thank for helping us with this day. The Perry County News helps advertise the event and always shows us at our best. 

    John Guillaume and Sweetwater entertained the crowd with their music. Noble’s IGA works with us on the food. So many thanks to the people who come each year to eat and enjoy the day. 

  • Freedom is not free

    On Monday, Memorial Day, the nearly 1.7 million members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S. and its Auxiliary encourage each American to take time embracing the feeling of honor, patriotism and pride while we pause to remember our nation’s fallen.

  • Attention: Women of World War II

    American Rosie the Riveter Association is trying to locate women who worked on the home front during World War II.

    Thousands of women worked to support the war effort as riveters, welders, electricians, inspectors in plants, sewing clothing and parachutes for the military, ordnance workers, rolling bandages, clerical, farming, and many other jobs such as volunteer workers collecting scrap metals and other critical materials. These women have stories of their WWII experiences that are of historical value and perhaps have never been told.

  • When to fly the flag at half staff

    As I drive by the wayside, I notice more national flags. As we start to warm up for summer – Memorial Day will be upon us before we know it – and I wonder how long has it been since many of you read Public Law 94-344. It was passed by the 94th Congress and signed by the president of the USA.

    Days for flying the flag at half staff. Half staff until noon, then raised to top of the pole. By order the of the president, the flag shall be flown at half staff upon the death of principal figures of the U.S. government or governor of a sate or territory.
