  • Community made 4-H event a success

    The Perry County 4-H Council would like to take this opportunity to thank the Junior Leaders, fairgrounds committee, livestock committee, local 4-H clubs, Chris Kessens, Chris Tempel and all who helped cook the food, and everyone else who helped with the dinner and auction that was held on Nov 4.

    Your support is greatly appreciated and a great help to the program. Special thanks to all the donors:

  • Holiday brightened for families

    More than 240 local residents received a Thanksgiving meal this year thanks to many who supported Evangelical United Church of Christ’s annual Thanksgiving dinner.

    The project would not be successful without the generous donations of cash, pies, time in the kitchen and delivery of meals.

    Special thanks to Bill and Dave’s Smokin’ Pit for smoking four turkeys for us. We appreciate the many volunteers who helped and plan to continue this annual project.

     

  • Taste and Share event a hit

    The Catholic Charities Tell City Advisory Board along with Agency Director Joan Hess would like to thank the community for supporting our recent Taste and Share event.

    This second annual fundraiser was successful and money raised will enable us to offer support to many needy neighbors.

    Special thanks are given to Mayor Jim Adams and the city of Tell City for the use of the Schergens Center, Betty Cash, Teresa Dauby and Cinderella’s, James Rash, Danny Bolin, Leo Gronquist, and everyone who attended, bought a ticket, or donated to our programs.

  • A proud American veteran

    As a former teacher and handicapped military veteran, I was surprised by four of my former fine Perry Central students, namely Ellen (Jones) Haire, Susan (Bryant) Ubelhor, Donna (Hedinger) Schipp and Dorothy (Schaefer) Gelarden at Denny’s Restaurant in Jasper on Veterans Day.

    They provided a fine meal and a Denny’s gift certificate. I consider it an early Christmas gift.

    What a wonderful relationship between former students and their former teacher.

    God bless them. Yes, I taught many wonderful students at Perry Central. Thank you again.

  • Making Cannelton Christmases brighter

    Another Christmas season is upon us and it is time to decorate the city. As you may know, it has been decades since the city, or any group supporting the city, has purchased commercial quality Christmas decorations to hang on the light poles along Highway 66 and Washington Street (Main Street).

  • City needs to encourage, not push away, home-based businesses

    I am concerned about the proposed limitation on home based businesses recently summarized in the News, as having received a “First Reading” at City Counsel. While the complete act was not printed, it did note that under the act, a home-based business could not occupy more than 15 percent of the residence.

  • Horse Rescue thanks generous community

    Horse Rescue South would like to thank all these businesses and great people for all the donations and help to make our fundraisers a success.

  • HabiTREE Event a wonderful success

    Thank you to all of the businesses, organizations and individuals that graciously made donations for the Perry County Habitat for Humanity HabiTREE event.   The event was held on Friday, Nov. 10, to fundraise for the 20th home that will be built in Perry County in 2018. 

  • Many hands made Explosion of Fun a hit

    Community Christian Church would like to thank the following local businesses for contributing items that were used as prizes at our Halloween alternative, “Explosion of Fun” on Oct. 31.

    The event was attended by more than 900 visitors and was a rollicking success.

  • Deforestation a sordid boon

    I just lost much of the remaining respect I still had for the state Division of Forestry with their intent to sell nearly 2,000 old-growth trees in Brown County. We lost a chance to preserve for future generations a reminder of how the landscape looked in the 1700s. A sordid boon. The sale price is only a drop in the bucket of state forest management. It is yet another example of an authentic and unspoiled place losing its distinctive cultural and environmental character in the name of homogenization and short-term profit.
