  • Comments misrepresented annexation opponent’s statement before city council

    This letter is in response to the article written by your reporter, Jake Bethel, appearing in Thursdays paper. He totally misrepresented me in that article. The council asked that you give your name and address before you spoke. On the way to the microphone, I asked if they wanted my legal address or the address of the property that was being annexed. They said, “The property being annexed” This property has been in my family for approximately 100 years.

  • Sheriff, others help with animal issues

    Since my retirement, I have been involved with animals by helping at the animal shelter and being barn manager for Horse Rescue South. It keeps me busy but its something I love to do.

    Every situation with animals is different, and sometimes I wonder what I’m getting myself into but I continue doing it. 

    Recently, while at the shelter, a call came in from a lady in the county that she had a basset hound that had come to her house and she wasn’t able to care for the dog or give it the help it needed.

  • Only annexation winners are lawyers

    Over $200,000 has been spent from the public coffers. This represents tax money that has been spent in your name to force people into the city limits of Tell City. Shame on you, Tell City. You let this happen. That money could have been spent on new police cars or decent radios for the cops. Or it could have been used for a new compactor trash truck or potholes.

  • What about grants for our healthcare?

    In life there are not any dumb questions. However, honorable mention may go to (County Councilman) Steve Goodson at the recent council meeting.

    Mr. Goodson asked “if there were any grants the health department was using that could cover the cost?” of the county’s portion of health insurance.

    Please pass along to Mr. Goodson that when he finds those grants or large subsides, that he share that information with all of us currently struggling to pay our individual healthcare premiums.

  • Scalia will be missed on high court

    Justice Antonin Scalia rightfully believed that when interpreting the Constitution, the Supreme Court had a duty to uphold the original intent of  the document established during its ratification.

    Though today, strictly  adhering to the Constitution is looked upon by large divisions of society as primitive. So out of respect to Justice Scalia, I wanted to resolve the common misinterpretations of our Constitution which have helped lead to the ill-fated state of our republic.

  • House Bill 1004 bad for teachers, bad for state

    For years, local teachers and school administrators have worked together to help best serve our students.

    If House Bill 1004 passes – the controversial bill purporting to solve Indiana’s teacher shortage – it will only worsen the shortage, thereby, making it harder to ensure kids in Cannelton City Schools have a caring and qualified teacher in every classroom.

  • Sidewalk supporters thanked

    I would like to thank everyone involved in the repairs of the sidewalks around Meyers Grade School.

    Thanks to Mary and Jim Snyder,Tom and Jane Huber, Julie Bishop, Bill and Judy Garret, Al Sibbet and Brian Garret with the Cannelton school system for all there generous donations.

    C.J. Ransom, owner of Ransom Excavating, made a donation and completed the job at cost.

  • Kleeman stepping down from school board

     

    I have had the honor and privilege to serve on the Tell City-Troy Township School Board for 11 years, first being appointed by the Troy Township trustee, then appointed by the Tell City Council, and lastly elected by the voters of the school corporation district in 2012.

    My service on the board has been driven by a desire and passion to help our community provide a system of quality education for our children.

  • Scouts’ fish fry a success

    St. Paul Boy Scout Troop 192 would like to thank all those who supported the troop’s recent fish fry at the parish hall. The attendance was just overwhelming. Thank you, too, to those who purchased a ticket but were unable to come.

    This event could not have gone as well as it did without the adult volunteers who gave their time in preparation, brought in desserts and helped to serve food.

    The proceeds will help immensely with the boys’ camp this summer in Tennessee.

  • Give annexation petitioners their day in court

    Personally, I have not had a strong opinion on the annexation issue. I can see the arguments for and against, and while recognizing the high stakes and high passions involved, I am not confident in saying whose argument (if either) should take precedence.
