Letters

  • Veterans, know where get assistance

    Greetings all veterans and families. Just a short note to say hello and hope all is well. I know the glass if half full. I went to Mass and Father Brian said, “ It’s a nice morning” I told him that the Indians would say, “It’s a good day to die.”

    Now, to get to the point. If any of you vets are having health issues and need help from the VA you do have resources.

    Yes, your DD-214 is a must. If you don’t know where or when you misplaced it see Wayne Hubert at the Perry County Courthouse.

  • Parish thanks football team for help

    Many thanks to members of the Tell City Marksmen football team for helping move pews back into our church in time for our church picnic Sunday, July 26.

     

    The Rev. Brian Esarey

  • Thanks for supporting Moose Lodge fest

    Our annual Summer Fest picnic and chicken and pork chop dinner sales this year were another success for our lodge. Thanks to the patrons of Tell City and the surrounding areas for their huge support. Special thanks goes out to our fireworks sponsors. We could not have pulled it off without your help. Thank you all so much.

  • 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.
