  • 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: 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.

  • 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.

  • LETTER: Jackson proud of accomplishments he, many others have made in Cannelton

    As the former canine handler for the Cannelton Police Department, I would like to take time and say thank you, to so many supporters who helped make me and canine Erik better.

    I would like to start off and say thank you to Chief Lee Hall for giving me the opportunity to be a part of the canine unit, along with other officers of the police department for helping during trainings and helping during our time of serving.

  • Work share program needed in Indiana

    Work share is a positive option for both companies and their employees in times of economic need. It is a voluntary program that allows employers to maintain skilled and stable workforces during temporary economic downturns. It allows employees to keep their jobs and benefits instead of facing unemployment and further financial uncertainty. And the state wins through a reduction in job losses.
