  • LETTER: Donations sought for VFW’s Avenue of Flags

    The Avenue of Flags is a project that Perry County has more than welcomed and supported over the past eight years.

    The names of fallen heroes who are our love ones are displayed three times a year for all to see and to share their remembrance. The freedom of our nation is a price paid for by their deaths as they were killed in action defending the gates of freedom.

  • LETTER: Democrats’ ‘War on Women’ sign trying to create local issue when there is none

    Last week a sign with the words “Stop the War on Women. Vote Democrat” was placed at the corner of 12th Street and Indiana 37 in Tell City. It seems local Democratic Party leaders are once again trying to make an issue of something that is a non-issue on the local level.

    The first time they put up a sign it implied that their friends and neighbors who happen to be Republicans did not support our troops. This is an inference that was ridiculous and completely untrue.

  • United Way helps Perry County 4-H’ers reach their potential

    The Perry County 4-H Coun-cil would like to thank the United Way for their support of our program. 4-H has a long, rich history in our county. For the past 100 years, youth have been learning life skills by their involvement in 4-H. In its beginning, 4-H’ers would learn basic skills. Sewing, gardening, canning and all other aspects of farm life were the main projects taught in 4-H. Today those life skills are still taught but in a much broader sense. Projects from all aspects of life, regardless of where youth live, are offered. Many of those offered are science-based.

  • LETTER: Thank you for supporting hog roast

    The Rome Volunteer Fire Department would like to take the time to personally thank our community for all the hard work and generous donations that went toward our hog roast Sept. 21.

    We also want to thank the following businesses for their drink donations: CVS, Noble’s IGA, T&R Liquors, Derby General Store, Alpine House and Bill’s IGA.

  • LETTER: Missing my 4-legged friend, Oscar

    I was 43 years old when I got my first pet. Through the years I never understood why people got so attached to their pets. We didn’t have any pets growing up because mom could barely afford to feed her children, let alone an animal.

    Now I know the feeling.

    This message is to the driver who was going down the 400 block of Market Street between 6 and 6:30 p.m. in Troy Sunday, Sept. 28, and ran over my dog and killed him.

    His name was Oscar. He was six weeks old and a Christmas present back in 2002.

  • LETTER: Your United Way contribution supports family-outreach efforts at Perry Central

    Perry Central Family Outreach is proud to be one of the many community agencies to receive funds from the United Way of Perry County. With their support, Family Outreach facilitates and sponsors a variety of programs and projects year round to help the families of Perry County obtain the skills they need to succeed and to assist at risk families.

  • LETTER: Bringing clarity to the facts, not twisting them

    Let me bring clarity to the vacation issue referenced by Mack Cail in his letter in the September 15th issue of the Perry County News.

    All school employees have written documents that specifically list wages and benefits.

    After reviewing all files, including multiple-year contracts, I found nothing which provides for the vacation days in question. If vacation days are not included in an employment contract, the school corporation should not spend your tax dollars to pay for them. This issue has nothing to do with “liking or disliking” anyone.
