  • Rumors vs. News

    I appreciate Larry Goffinet’s work at the paper as well as his passion for the Women’s Softball league, but I found his piece regarding the Women’s Softball League to be less about news and more about a personal opinion. The column itself seemed more suited as a Letter to the Editor.

    Regarding the rumor, I suspect any efforts and ideas to consolidate youth complexes are just that, ideas, not a conspiracy to slight a long-standing women’s league. As a father with young kids, I welcome conversations to consolidate our youth complexes. 

  • It’s been a fast 87 years

    As a retired teacher, musician, and song writer, I wake up during the night and think about the wonderful students I taught or I think about an idea for a song; I wrote many songs at night.

    You know, when you have wonderful students in your classes, you can get a lot done; that was my situation many times. They were hard workers! It was a joy to teach them/ It was my job to be there everyday. I had 22 years of perfect attendance. It was great to see them learn! Another word comes to mind: dedication.

  • County needs only one school district

    I agree with you 100 percent on your editorial (Sept. 18 “By the Numbers:”) that there should be only one school district, as well as one high school and one superintendent. One assistant for the district is a very good idea, with the superintendent being an elected position.

  • Farm to Table dinner had many helpers

    On behalf of the Perry County Quality of Life, I would like to thank the following individuals, businesses, and organizations.  Without their support, this event would not have been as successful as it was.

  • Labor: building momentum and creating change

    On Labor Day, we recognize and honor the achievements of America’s working people. In 2017, this annual celebration comes at a critical time for our nation. A time where collective action is on the rise, yet so are the attacks on our pay, health care, retirement security and rights on the job.

  • Stuff the bus raised more than $5,000 in school supplies and cash for students

    The United Way of Perry County wishes to thank all of the volunteers who worked a very hot weekend collecting school supplies for our local schools.

    As a result of these individuals giving their time and talents, children at Cannelton, Head Start, Perry Central and Tell City schools were gifted $3,735 worth of supplies purchased at Walmart, and Stuff the Bus disbursed $2,741 in cash donations collected over that weekend.

  • Perry Central’s eclipse watch a success

    The Great American Eclipse was an exciting event for Perry Central students, thanks to the efforts and generosity of our community. Perry Central Community Schools would like to extend a huge thank you to all those who made it a day that students will remember by donating time and money to supply certified viewing glasses and documenting the event.

  • Schweizer Fest exhibit honored troops
