  • News should be ashamed of headline

    In regard to the headline in the Oct. 31 issue of the Perry County News. That was the most objectionable, disgusting, degrading headline I have ever seen splashed across the front page of a small community’s newspaper.

    The fact that something like that could and did happen is bad enough, but the fact that you felt it necessary to emblazon it in very large print was completely uncaring for the people of Cannelton, who are striving to make our city a better place to live.

  • LETTER: Supporters made Legion Post 213’s picnic a success

    The American Legion held its family picnic Sept. 15. I would like to thank everyone for helping and I would like to publicly give credit to the businesses for donating coupons for the kids games.

    Thanks to Wendy’s, Dairy Queen, Taco Bell and McDonald’s.

    Thanks again.

  • LETTER: Do you think Obama should be impeached?

    Editor's note: An incorrect headline appeared over this letter in our print edition.

    I'd like to respond both to GOP politicians along with their Tea Party followers about their accusations that Obama is abusing his power. I'll respond by asking them a few questions.

  • LETTER: Anderson Woods counts on United Way help

    We at Anderson Woods would like to thank United Way of Perry County and the many individuals and businesses who donate to them for their part in helping us further our mission of serving those with special needs in our community.

    For many years now, United Way has provided substantial financial support to our summer camp located near Bristow.

    That support goes a long way toward allowing us to provide a unique, quality camp experience for children and adults with developmental disabilities, many of whom are directly from our local Perry County community.

  • LETTER: Perry County celebrating its bicentennial in November 2014; committee wants ideas

    Perry County will celebrate its 200th anniversary Nov. 1, 2014.  A bicentennial committee has events planned all year to celebrate this important occasion in our county’s history.

    In order to help us get to know our county better, we decided to have a monthly focus on a piece of our history. We invite organizations, businesses, individuals and others to get involved in any way you can to make this a great celebration year.

  • LETTER: United Way always a strong partner with Salvation Army

    I am writing you today to encourage your readers to support the United Way of Perry County during their fundraising campaign.

  • LETTER: Supporting United Way helps adult education in our county
  • LETTER: Courcier family roots run deep in our county

    I couldn’t help but want to add to your story of Courcier Hill, to bring to life the people who bear its name. So, often names that were once prominent in our county’s history, like time, simply fade away and becomes forgotten memories.

    This family, believe it or not, still has many descendants in Perry County yet today, but many may not be aware of the great tribute their family did for our country in several of our greatest conflicts.
