Letters

  • LETTER: Don’t cut programs that help the hungry

    This week, President Trump announced his budget proposal for fiscal year 2019. We are dismayed to see that this administration is laying out a plan that sets a dangerous course for many low income and vulnerable Hoosiers.

    Most devastating are the proposed cuts and structural changes to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.

  • LETTER: Meals on Wheels needs volunteer drivers

    Meals on Wheels of Southwestern Indiana, a division of SWIRCA and More, is recruiting volunteer drivers to deliver meals to home bound senior citizens in the area. Drivers and substitutes are needed for four meal routes and will serve approximately 9 to 12 meals per route. Drivers are needed Monday through Thursday between the hours of 10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m.

  • Students help those in need

    We would like to give a special thank you to William Tell Elementary School for their food drive, which benefited the Council of Agencies.

    Also, thanks so much to any other school drive and all donations from everyone. All volunteers were very helpful and appreciated so much.

    Treasurer, Council of Agencies

  • Robotics competition had many helpers

    On Saturday, Feb. 3, 26 elementary VEX robotic teams descended on William Tell Elementary School. It was our first attempt at such an endeavor which also happened to be a state qualifying event.

    I am proud to say everything went extremely well. It would not have been possible without the support of the school staff, teachers, students and the entire school corporation. The event also involved some high school teachers, school board members, and administration officials (John Scioldo was a great master of ceremonies) working at this event.

  • LETTER: Don’t forget to complete your ag census

    My husband and I live on a mid sized farm in northwestern Minnesota, where we grow corn, soybeans, sugar beets, wheat, and alfalfa. Several of our grown children are farmers too, raising families and teaching them how to be competent, resourceful future farmers.

    We all rely on good policy that effectively keeps farms operational – especially young farmers who need startup capital and supportive risk-management tools. So every five years, my family does something very important for our farms and communities – we complete the Census of Agriculture.

  • Perry County is a wonderful place

    I am grateful to the late superintendent of Perry Central Schools, Edgar Etienne, for hiring me to teach there in 1965.

    I give the following reasons why I feel the county of Perry is wonderful:

    Reason 1: some Perry County businesses give veterans a discount on transactions; some counties do not do this. I like to consider it as a thanks for serving.

    Reason 2: Businesses Jasper Engines, Waupaca Foundry and Ivy Tech are involved with schools. An example is Commodore Manufacturing in the Perry Central School System.

  • Democracy demands a right to know

    At the end of their year, corporations create an annual report for their shareholders. They mail it to those shareholders or present it at a meeting of those shareholders. The information helps investors decide on whether they want to increase or decrease their holdings in that corporation.

  • Silvesternacht certainly was cold but warm in community spirit

    On behalf of the members of the Perry County Quality of Life Committee, we would like to extend our sincere gratitude for all those who assisted in planning and hosting the sixth annual Silvesternacht celebration on New Year’s Eve. 

    It would not be possible without the enthusiastic collaboration between the city of Tell City, local businesses and organizations and Tell City Troy Township School Corp. 

  • Tell City Kiwanis Club says ‘thank you’

    The Tell City Kiwanis Club would like to thank the many generous individual donors who helped make the Kiwanis Christmas Basket Program possible this year.

  • The importance of words

    We must never let words control our thoughts; we must control them. Incorrect usage of words and punctuation can produce confusion, miscomprehension and improper conclusions in the mind of the reader.

    In the past the incorrect usage of words and punctuation have produced disastrous consequences.

    V.I. Lenin misplaced a simple comma while writing a directive which resulted in the mass murder of thousands.
