  • Thank you, St. Meinrad ROCKS supporters

    I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who supported the seventh annual St. Meinrad ROCKS Fest Sept. 22-23. It was great to be able to make it a free event this year!

    Special thanks goes out to our entertainment: Phil Schraner, Debbie Schuetter, The Hiding, Isaac and Megan Gatwood, Silly Rules, PM, Soul Circus, Angel Rhodes, In The Basement, Andy and Henry Hagedorn, Rex Gambill/ DNR, Jeff Armstrong/ Animal Tales, Ronnie and Ralph Troesch, Dr. Moody, Topher Hays, 5th Degree Burn, Brent Lechner, Cory Sims, Timmy Dunn and Dirty Trixx.

  • Thanks for making Leopold 175th special
  • 10th Street Fair a great success

    We are so pleased to report to the community that our third 10th Street Fall Fair was a big success. We were blessed with a beautiful fall day filled with fun and fellowship. We are pleased to report that we raised $2,700 for four nonprofits, Crisis Connection, Weekend Backpack program, Perry County Council on Aging and Perry County Food Coalition.

    Many thanks to these organizations for the amazing work they do to help so many residents of Perry County.

  • Humane Society wants to be part of the solution

    I would like to talk to you about something that is dear to my heart, the Humane Society of Perry County.

    We need people who will work and help keep it alive. When you have a group of people that will work together, you have a strong army. And that’s what we need. We realize that everyone is not an animal lover. There are more things that are important to them. In fact, the editor told me I would have to convince him and others like him why animal issues are important in our county. Help me do that.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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. 

    This community effort was highlighted  on Aug. 26 as volunteers form all over the county came together to host our 2nd annual Farm to Table dinner and concert for the residents of Perry County.

  • Full-time animal control officer needed
  • Thanks for making Perry Central’s back-to-school cookout a success

    We would like to thank all the individuals, organizations and businesses that contributed to the success of this year’s Perry Central Back to School Cookout.  The turn-out was great with over a thousand students and families attending.
