Letters

  • Perry County filled with nice folks who care

    I am writing this letter to all the wonderful folks out there who care. I will cite the happening that I experienced recently.

    On Memorial Day I ate lunch at Denny’s Restaurant, and a nice, young lady and a nice, young gentleman stopped by my booth upon leaving and thanks me so graciously for serving in the military. Come to find out when I was ready to pay my bill, the waitress informed me that the aforementioned couple had paid for my dinner. So, here, I want to publicly thank those fine folks.

  • River Sweep a success

    The 2015 Ohio River Sweet has come and gone. We would like to thank the volunteers who participated in the River Sweep and the following donors of food, money and supplies: American Women’s Baptist Ministry of Deer Creek Baptist Church, Chicago’s Pizza, Subway, Noble’s IGA, Papa John’s Pizza, Fifth Third Bank, German American Bank, Franzman Insurance Agency, Tell City High School, Domtar and Perry County Memorial Hospital.

  • Schweizer Fest production of Mary Poppins promises to be a great show ... don’t miss it

    As I am sure you have seen or heard, Schweizer Fest is once again presenting a musical this year. Because 2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the show,” Mary Poppins” was the perfect choice. Plans began last year when a director was needed, rights had to be secured, and gathering the minds of those who could make it happen had to take place.

    At this same time, those who are familiar on the Schweizer Fest stage began to get the itch to perform. It was time.

  • Lots of help made picnic a success

    St. Paul Church picnic 2015 is history. It was a warm, dry Sunday afternoon in the Park. If you didn’t come, you missed a lot of games for the kids,  adult games and good fellowship.

    You missed some good food, both in the air- conditioned Parish Hall or some tasty brats, burgers and dogs in the park.

    I must begin by thanking God for such a perfectly, nice summer picnic day.

  • Enjoy fireworks responsibly this holiday

    While the fireworks-related injury numbers are down approximately 9 percent and use of consumer fireworks is up by more than 59 percent over the last 20 years, it is still vital that consumers use the upmost caution with the products.

    Consumer fireworks are truly safer today than ever before, and today’s smarter buying public uses the products carefully and with good common sense resulting in more use of consumer fireworks and fewer injuries.

    The cardinal safety rule is to use common sense. Some of the primary fireworks safety tips include:

  • Best of luck, Class of 2015

    The Perry County Community Foundation wishes to congratulate all graduating seniors and their families as they begin this new journey in life.

    PCCF is pleased to announce that due to the generosity of donors who created scholarship funds for Perry County graduates, we were able to award 34 scholarships in the total amount of $37,850.

  • Pope’s encyclical encourages stewardship

    Last week, Pope Francis, in a sweeping papal encyclical, called for a political, economic and personal transformation aimed at confronting climate change and related environmental concerns.

    The much-anticipated encyclical, titled “Laudato si: On the Care of our Common Home,” is a strong call to stewardship of the environment and responsibility for our neighbors. It is a significant invitation to care for creation through swift action, not only to the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics, but to all people.

  • Annual Colors of Hope 5K run was a success

    The Colors of Hope 5K was held Saturday, May 30. Perfect weather and an enthusiastic crowd of runners and walkers helped create a very successful family-fun event hosted by New Directions Health & Fitness Club.

    We’d like to thank Teri James and Relay For Life for once again partnering with us. Along with her support and the support of others, we were able to make a sizeable donation to the American Cancer Society once again this year.

  • Developers given free land; tax abatements not needed

    This is to the mayor and city council. In regards to the development seeking tax relief for the housing project, they have already been given the lots. They don’t need any more. As a taxpayer for  more than 60 years, I say no. When they rent apartments or sell condos, will they get the money?
