  • Thank you, Perry County Memorial Hospital

    To all doctors, nurses, security, cleaning crew, respiratory dept, telephone operators and anyone else I may have missed:

    My mom and I would like to sincerely thank you from the bottom to the top of our hearts.

    My mom came in to your hospital because her blood count was low and after being admitted and given blood, she had an attack of her appendix. She was then taken into surgery for an appendectomy.

  • Thanks for making postal food drive a success

    The Council on Agencies would like to give a sincere thank you to the U.S. Post Office and all of the postal workers who collected food and to anyone who contributed food in the annual food rive.

    Also a thank you to the volunteers who helped in this drive and to anyone else who has given food to the Council of Agencies. It is very much appreciated.

    Anyone interested in becoming a volunteer can contact a member by calling (812) 547-7393.

  • Preventing ATV accidents

    Unfortunately, over the past year, a few parents here in Southern Indiana have received the dreaded phone call telling them their child has been injured or killed in an all-terrain vehicle accident. As a father of four boys, I cannot begin to imagine getting a similar call. I am an outdoorsman who enjoys bringing my kids along with me and I understand how fun it is when the entire family participates in activities such as hunting, fishing, hiking and riding.

  • Hillary Clinton’s progressive nightmare

    At a recent Hillary Clinton political rally in California, she expressed an unusual sentiment. The essence of what she said is that she is going to make America what they all know it can be. To make America what they all know it can be? You gotta be kidding!

  • Thank you, Noble’s IGA

    I would like to thank Noble’s IGA for its donation of hot dogs and buns for the kids fishing derby held May 21 at German Ridge. They have done this for many years and the kids enjoy them very much.

    Good job!

  • Funeral home remains open

    Early Sunday morning, we received a call that our funeral home, Huber Funeral Home in Cannelton Chapel, was on fire.  We are thankful that the heaviest damage was to the upstairs apartment, not to the funeral home business below.

    Most important to us is that everyone escaped unharmed.

  • Knitters and Knotters grateful for support

    Knits and Knots has blessed over 1,000 people with warm items each year for the past 10 years. A big thanks to all who donated money for us to purchase yarn. We were able to purchase more than 150 skeins.

    We have about 20 people making items this year. It takes a lot of yarn to bless a lot of people.

    Thank you for supporting us
