  • Removing the sales tax from utility bills would save Hoosiers money

    I recently read the “Arnold Account,” Keeping Hoosier homes warm this winter, and would like to offer the following comments:

    The community action agencies, organizations referenced, serving Spencer, Perry and Crawford Counties are Lincoln Hills Development Corp. (812-547-3435) and serving Dubois, Warrick and Pike, Tri-Cap (812-482-2233).

    These local, nonprofit agencies do a great job, serving hundreds of individuals every year.

    The funds are Federal funds passing through the state agency to these local organizations.

  • United Way’s support of schools appreciated

    United Way of Perry County is an optimistic beacon in our community, seeing our children as our future and taking a visionary approach to community growth. 

    This attitude led United Way of Perry County to support Perry Central Robotics, and we extend our sincere thanks to the organization and the many donors who make the work of United Way of Perry County possible.

  • Benefit for Tammy Scott Tanner a success

    On Oct. 29, a benefit was held to help my mother, Tammy Scott Tanner, to help offset the financial burden of her cancer diagnosis and treatment.

    On July 14 of this year, my mother underwent a double mastectomy after being diagnosed with breast cancer and she has been hospitalized due to the effects of chemotherapy. As of this writing, she is currently still hospitalized due to lung problems caused by chemo.

    She was working but only part time, so she was not eligible for any benefits or leave pay.

  • Fall Festival a big success in Cannelton

    On Wednesday, Oct. 26, our annual fall festival enjoyed a tremendous turnout from students, staff and community supporters.

    Cannelton PTO would like to thank the following individuals and businesses for helping make this year’s annual fall festival a huge success. Along with the entire staff and student body of Cannelton City Schools, we would like to thank the following:

  • The benefits of tax-increment financing

    I have had several people of late ask me what TIF (tax-increment financing) does for our local school system.

    Guess what! TIF gives the Tell City-Troy Township School System $120,000 a year to replace taxes they don’t collect.

    The Perry County Redevelopment Commission voted about two years ago to give the Tell City-Troy Township School Corp.  $120,000 a year until the year 2024.

  • United Way Youth Day of Caring another success

    United Way of Perry County would like to take this opportunity to thank the youth, youth group leaders, and various businesses and agencies of the community for taking part in this year’s successful “Youth Day of Caring” on Sunday, Nov 6.

    Youth groups joined forces to paint, wash windows, rake, clean, weed, clean out landscaping, move boxes and clear trails at locations across the county.  The free labor provided by our volunteers saved our local non-profits many maintenance dollars and numerous hours of valuable time.  

  • Thank you, United Way for the support

    United Way of Perry County is an optimistic beacon in our community, seeing our children as our future and taking a visionary approach to community growth.

    This attitude led United Way of Perry County to support Perry Central Robotics, and we extend our sincere thanks to the organization and the many donors who make the work of United Way of Perry County possible.

    Perry Central is striving to provide futuristic experiences for our students, understanding that the future is here.

  • Village open house was a big success

    The Shubael Little Pioneer Village Open House held Oct. 15-16 was again a great success.  The weather was beautiful and counting the 250 school students, parents and teachers that came the following Monday and Tuesday, the Village hosted 1,250 guests.
