Letters

  • LETTER: Thank you for making Perry County’s bicentennial celebration a great one

    I would like to thank the following sponsors of the Perry County Bicentennial celebration:

  • LETTER: Community bell ringers, donations needed

    I am once again in need of your help. I am the kettle coordinator for the Salvation Army here in Perry County and I am in need of volunteer bell ringers.

    Perhaps you, your family, business, church, club, or civic organization would be willing to ring bells for us this season.

    We will have kettles in front of each Wal-Mart entrance from Nov. 28 through Dec. 24. We are allowed to ring bells from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. daily.

  • LETTER: Shubael Little events drawing new visitors

    Shubael Little Pioneer Village once again had a wonderful open house the third weekend of October. A survey at the gate showed that 50 percent of the cars entering had not been here before. Thanks to so many, including the Perry County News, for helping us reach so many new people. We estimate 1,000 guests visited the two days. The following week we hosted 300 school children, teachers and chaperones.

  • LETTER: D of I members grateful for help

    The Daughters of Isabella would like to thank members and anyone who donated to our St. Elizabeth-Coleman Center in Indianapolis.

    The D of I supports this center, which we helped begin. Next year they will celebrate their 100th anniversary. This is also our state’s project.

    Our circle’s collection this year was the largest for St. E’s thus far; also the circle donates more baby items than any other circle in Indiana.

  • LETTER: Thanks for supporting county’s bicentennial

    The Lafayette Spring Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution would like to thank everyone who helped with the Perry County First Family program. There were over 439 applications turned in and confirmed as Perry County First Families. 

  • LETTER: Blame Bush rant is getting far too old

    While I do not typically respond to letters in a tit-for-tat manner, I must thank Mr. Gray for his excellent reply (“GOP had hand in controversies,” Oct. 27 issue) to my original letter (“Vote for Democrats is vote for Obama record,” Oct. 20 issue).

    In his bloviating, extended rant he perfectly illustrates the liberal mindset. No. 1, distort and confuse the facts while mixing in a few actual truths. No. 2 and most importantly, blame Bush.

  • LETTER: Many hands supported fall tour in Rome

    We want to thank everyone who helped make the Fall Festival at Rome successful.

    The News gave us advertising ahead of the event, Noble’s worked with us purchasing the food, and the visitors who came to eat or listen to the band or buy items from the country store.

    We enjoyed having the HouseKats provide music for the event.

  • LETTER: Community support, donations made 69th Cannelton Elementary Fall Fest another big success

    On Oct. 23, Cannelton elementary students and families hosted the 69th annual Parent-Teacher Organization Fall Festival. We had a tremendous turnout and a very successful festival. The Cannelton Elementary School PTO would like to thank the entire faculty, staff, students, parents, grandparents, guardians, community, volunteers and the following individuals and businesses.

  • LETTER: United Way is a great partner to William Tell

    At William Tell Elementary, we recognize the value of celebrating our school community, with a focus on family activities and community outreach. Thanks to support from United Way of Perry County and Title 1, we are able to employ a family outreach coordinator who is responsible for community outreach, such as the following:

    Volunteer community readers are community members who read a book each month to a class of students and revisit that same class each month in order to establish a relationship with the students.

  • Hoch: I have the experience to be prosecutor

    Editor’s Note: Thursday was the last issue for letters to the editor of a political nature. In keeping with past practice, however, candidates are allowed to respond directly to previous letters. The News agreed to publish this letter from Jason Hoch, candidate for prosecutor, in response to Thursday’s letter from Perry County Prosecutor Rod Acchiardo.
