  • Rome’s Dogwood day great

    The 2017 Dogwood Festival at Rome was a wonderful success. We have so many people to thank for helping us with this day. The Perry County News helps advertise the event and always shows us at our best. 

    John Guillaume and Sweetwater entertained the crowd with their music. Noble’s IGA works with us on the food. So many thanks to the people who come each year to eat and enjoy the day. 

  • Freedom is not free

    On Monday, Memorial Day, the nearly 1.7 million members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S. and its Auxiliary encourage each American to take time embracing the feeling of honor, patriotism and pride while we pause to remember our nation’s fallen.

  • 2017 River Sweep needs volunteers

  • Thanks for making 2017 prom a success

  • Attention: Women of World War II

    American Rosie the Riveter Association is trying to locate women who worked on the home front during World War II.

    Thousands of women worked to support the war effort as riveters, welders, electricians, inspectors in plants, sewing clothing and parachutes for the military, ordnance workers, rolling bandages, clerical, farming, and many other jobs such as volunteer workers collecting scrap metals and other critical materials. These women have stories of their WWII experiences that are of historical value and perhaps have never been told.

  • When to fly the flag at half staff

    As I drive by the wayside, I notice more national flags. As we start to warm up for summer – Memorial Day will be upon us before we know it – and I wonder how long has it been since many of you read Public Law 94-344. It was passed by the 94th Congress and signed by the president of the USA.

    Days for flying the flag at half staff. Half staff until noon, then raised to top of the pole. By order the of the president, the flag shall be flown at half staff upon the death of principal figures of the U.S. government or governor of a sate or territory.

  • School’s celebrity dinner a success

    The first annual Celebrity Waiter Dinner for the junior class at Cannelton High School was a great success.

  • Soil and water conservation district values nature

    Every Earth Day, we at the Perry Soil and Water Conservation District reflect on the beauty of the natural resources we get to enjoy in Perry County.

    Our staff is grateful for the opportunity to work with members of the community to facilitate voluntary initiatives to conserve land, water, forests and wildlife in our area. We are one of 92 Soil and Water Conservation Districts across the state – and nearly 3,000 across the nation – that provide a neighborly presence to help preserve and protect the natural resources that we all love.

  • Support needed for homegrown biofuels

    Homegrown biofuels are propelling Indiana’s economy forward. Our 14 ethanol   plants not only provide a vital market for Indiana crops, they support thousands of jobs statewide.

    That’s why it is critical for Indiana lawmakers like Sen. Todd Young and  Congressman Larry Bucshon to stand up for the Renewable Fuel Standard, which protects consumer access to biofuels. Thanks to this policy, farmers  get to compete at the pump. And it’s working.

  • Good Friday dinner a big success

    On Good Friday, Brick by Brick and St. Benedict’s Brew Works hosted a fund-raising buffet at the Tell City Depot.

    More than 200 people attended during the day and the funds raised will help Brick by Brick continue its mission of improving the appearance of downtown Tell City.

    Over the past year, we have provided cost-sharing funds to several businesses who made improvements to their properties.

    Thanks to everyone who attended and Brick by Brick members for giving up their time on Good Friday to work the grills, serve meals and clean tables.
