  • Protecting the lives of young Hoosiers

    Sixty-six is the number to remember, not as a number, but because it represents young lives that no longer have opportunities to become scientists, doctors, teachers and entrepreneurs to improve the quality of life and bring peace to our state and country. Nor can they bring laughter and enjoyment to their family and friends.

  • Where do candidates stand on annexation?

    Another election is rapidly approaching and one question many of us would like to know is where do the candidates running for county offices stand on the annexation issue?

    Before you say it’s a city issue, annexation involves transferring area from the county to the city, along with revenue, responsibility and possibly control of some collected tax dollars.

  • Kenny Rowe is an example of civic responsibility

    A special thank you goes to Kenny Rowe. Every morning I am on my front porch and around 6:15 a.m., Kenny Rowe faithfully walks by with his grocery bag in his hand.

    He is out getting some exercise but also takes the time to pick up the trash so many people throw on our streets. Our city looks better because of his efforts and it is something we should emulate.

  • Stop stealing trash tags

    My name is Walter Baur, 85-year-old Korean War Veteran. I was denied a VA pension because I make too much money a month. I draw $1,325 in Social Security.

    The same day I was charged $20 for not putting trash stickers on four bags of trash. Why would I drag four bags of trash to alley and not put stickers on them? Then the same day, my truck and car had tires cut. Cost me $150. The next day, my trash stickers were cut off my trash. I had to put on two new stickers. Total of seven stickers in one week.

  • Elect leaders committed to working people

    This Labor Day, we recognize the millions of people across the country who go to work every day to take care of our families.

    We work to put food on the table, to put ourselves through school, to pay for the dance lessons and the baseball league.

    Our hard work allows our economy to thrive and our work is what makes America great.

    Working people aren’t waiting for an invitation to the table.

    We are driving the debate about the issues that matter to us. We are making sure our voices are heard from coast-to-coast

  • Quilts stitched by volunteers with love

  • National Night Out a big success

    What a success! On Aug. 2, the communities of Perry County enjoyed our first local National Night Out Event, and the event is getting rave reviews.

    On behalf of the local National Night Out Planning Committee, we want to extend a heart-felt thank you for making this event so successful and for the support you have shown local law enforcement.

  • Cal Ripken All-Stars thank sponsors

  • Citizen of the Year grateful, humbled

    To Vince Luecke, a very talented writer and photographer, thank you for the special way you presented me to your readers as this year’s Distinguished Citizen. I was so impressed as I read it; you wrote it about just who I am, and your pictures were great.

    To the people in this community, thank you very much for the personal congratulations, the phone calls, the cards and the flowers I received. At times, all of the good words left me speechless to respond, and that’s not ordinary for me.

  • Trump not the first ‘America First’ promoter

    Firstly, I am writing in response to a pro-Trump letter from a young man named (Tim) Kloeppel, a 2011 graduate of Perry Central, originally from St. Croix. It is stated he will attend Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. in August, (letter appeared in the July 7 edition.) This poor soul is incredibly confused.

    He is writing about the America First Committee and one of its leaders, Charles Lindbergh. Trump is stating that he wants to put America first. What was the America First Committee? Who was Charles Lindbergh?
