  • Manufacturing Night – a huge success

    The Perry County College Success Coalition and the Perry County Development Corp. would like to thank everyone who attended our fourth annual Manufacturing Night on Oct. 25 at the Tell City Ivy Tech Career & Technology Center.

    The event was a huge success with more than 250 people in attendance, 70 students representing 17 area manufacturers, and over $1,000 worth of giveaways handed out.

  • TC academic kick-off had many helpers

    The Tell City Junior-Senior High School Renaissance Class would like to thank the following people for their help and contributions to our academic kick-off, held on Friday, Oct. 13.

  • Thursday’s costume contest at St. Paul’s was big success

    I would like to express my thanks to all the people who helped with the annual Costume Contest at St. Paul’s during the witches walk this year.

    Thanks to all the office staff for helping to prep things for the event; to the confirmation students for helping set up, take pictures, hand out candy and lead the “parade”.

    A special thank you to Dairy Queen and Cinema 66 for the discounts given to St. Paul’s for the prizes.

    There were several others that helped clean up and I just want everyone to know how much this is appreciated!

  • Let’s respect our police officers, while holding all sides accountable

    I do not respond to many published news stories, However, every now and then, I seem to be compelled to lay my opinion on the proverbial table. This is my response to Editor Vince Luecke’s Trigger Happy:

    We have all seen video clips and heard references to your scenario for the past several months. However, we do not hear often that our law enforcers are shot when trying to identify the erratic driver of a vehicle that could be, or, is a definite danger to other innocent drivers who share the roadway.

  • Thanks for making Leopold 175th special
  • Thank you, St. Meinrad ROCKS supporters

    I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who supported the seventh annual St. Meinrad ROCKS Fest Sept. 22-23. It was great to be able to make it a free event this year!

    Special thanks goes out to our entertainment: Phil Schraner, Debbie Schuetter, The Hiding, Isaac and Megan Gatwood, Silly Rules, PM, Soul Circus, Angel Rhodes, In The Basement, Andy and Henry Hagedorn, Rex Gambill/ DNR, Jeff Armstrong/ Animal Tales, Ronnie and Ralph Troesch, Dr. Moody, Topher Hays, 5th Degree Burn, Brent Lechner, Cory Sims, Timmy Dunn and Dirty Trixx.

  • 10th Street Fair a great success

    We are so pleased to report to the community that our third 10th Street Fall Fair was a big success. We were blessed with a beautiful fall day filled with fun and fellowship. We are pleased to report that we raised $2,700 for four nonprofits, Crisis Connection, Weekend Backpack program, Perry County Council on Aging and Perry County Food Coalition.

    Many thanks to these organizations for the amazing work they do to help so many residents of Perry County.

  • Humane Society wants to be part of the solution

    I would like to talk to you about something that is dear to my heart, the Humane Society of Perry County.

    We need people who will work and help keep it alive. When you have a group of people that will work together, you have a strong army. And that’s what we need. We realize that everyone is not an animal lover. There are more things that are important to them. In fact, the editor told me I would have to convince him and others like him why animal issues are important in our county. Help me do that.

  • County needs only one school district

    I agree with you 100 percent on your editorial (Sept. 18 “By the Numbers:”) that there should be only one school district, as well as one high school and one superintendent. One assistant for the district is a very good idea, with the superintendent being an elected position.

  • Rumors vs. News

    I appreciate Larry Goffinet’s work at the paper as well as his passion for the Women’s Softball league, but I found his piece regarding the Women’s Softball League to be less about news and more about a personal opinion. The column itself seemed more suited as a Letter to the Editor.

    Regarding the rumor, I suspect any efforts and ideas to consolidate youth complexes are just that, ideas, not a conspiracy to slight a long-standing women’s league. As a father with young kids, I welcome conversations to consolidate our youth complexes.
