  • Workers tear up product of hard work, love

    I live at 4525 Boyd Road. My hobby and passion is growing beautiful flowers. It is something I love to do and I am good at it.

    Two months ago I made five new flower beds with perennials I have been growing for four years.

    Two weeks ago, while I was at work, the people who are burying the telephone line all over Perry County came to my yard. What they did to my yard is a crying shame. They tore it completely up and there is nothing left of my five flower beds. I can’t even find a single perennial.

  • Do you think Obama should be impeached?

    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.

    1. What if Obama or any other president suspended the Writ of Habeous Corpus in response to a national emergency? Do you then think he should be impeached?

  • VNA thankful for United Way’s support

    The United Way of Perry County has been helping individuals and families in our community for over 40 years by funding organizations that provide services focused on health, education and financial stability.

    VNA Plus (formerly known as Visiting Nurse Association) is one such agency that began serving the health care needs of Perry County residents in 1979, in large part as a result of United Way funding.

  • Same-sex marriage ban a terrible mistake

    Recently I read an article by Marlin Betts and in this article he went on to share his views on the state’s proposed amendment to ban same-sex marriage. He is not alone with his views, as they are shared by many in this country who feel that gay marriage goes against their religious beliefs, and wish to uphold the country’s “Christian moral standards.”

  • United Way supports backpack food program

    During the 2012-13 school year, St. Paul Ministry of Charity aided many children by supporting the Perry County Weekend Food Backpack Program in our county. This program supplies food over the weekend for children who come from homes where food is not always available to them. Nearly 3,400 weekend backpacks were distributed to 110 students from the three county schools last year.

    United Way of Perry County would like to take this opportunity to thank the youth, youth-group leaders and various businesses and agencies of the community for taking part in this year’s successful Youth Day of Caring Nov. 3.

    Youth groups joined forces to paint, wash windows, rake, clean, weed, clean landscaping, construct the new Born Learning Trail and clear trails at designated locations across the county.
