Letters

  • LETTER: Knights of Columbus grateful for aid

    The Knights of Columbus would like to thank the many area businesses that donated items for our Aug. 24 event. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

  • LETTER: Great hosts made Greener Pastures fun

    On Aug. 27, Justin and Amber Roth on Eureka Road in Spencer County opened up their farm to the public for a grazing field day called Greener Pastures.

    This is an event that Perry, Spencer and Dubois counties host together every three years. This year happened to be Spencer County’s turn and Justin Roth graciously agreed to host the event. They were so easy going and great to work with, that they made the planning process flow effortlessly.

  • LETTER: Habitat for Humanity grateful for support

    We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who stopped by the Perry County Habitat for Humanity booth at Schweizer Fest this year.

    We hope you enjoyed our homemade cobbler and ice cream despite the rainy weather.

    We appreciate your continued support.

    If anyone is interested in working with Habitat to build and purchase a home, please call the Habitat office at 547-4805 for an application.

    Habitat is always looking for volunteers interested in our building projects and working with our partner families as well.

  • LETTER: Pet show’s success a credit to many

    The Humane Society of Perry County would like to thank all the participants of the Schweizer Fest Pet Show. We had a great turnout which included some unusual pets, a bunny, goat and snake.

    We also thank the community businesses for their donations: Orscheln Farm & Home Supply, Tractor Supply, Cash Saver, Noble’s IGA, Coca-Cola, Old National, German American, Fifth Third, All About You and Greenwood Animal Hospital.

  • LETTER: Help working families rather than give tax subsidies to ship jobs overseas

    Talk about kicking someone when she’s down: a woman who lost her job when the AJ Wright distribution center in South Bend shut down was told her unemployment benefits will be trimmed by over 10 percent, thanks to the mindless federal budget cut known as the “sequester.” Meanwhile, major corporations continue to get huge tax subsidies from Washington to ship jobs overseas.

  • LETTER: Schweizer Fest silent auction support will battle Alzheimer’s

    On behalf of the Alzheimer’s Association team, Kroessman’s Krusaders I want to thank the following Perry County artists for their kind donation of art for our Schweizer Fest silent auction: Lynn Dauby, Rachel Decker, Laura Dinkle, Shelly Goodrich, Nita Claise, Mickey McMahon, Terri Theis and Nancy Poehlein.

    We raised a total of $374 toward our $5,000 goal.

  • LETTER: Supporters making things happen at village

    The Shuabel Little Pioneer Village would like to publicly thank Southern Indiana Power for a $1,500 grant to which Mulzer Crushed Stone added $500 for materials to be used to improve our access road.

    Development and upkeep are constant expenses at the village. And we do appreciate these two local businesses for these contributions.  Amy Etienne authored the winning grant.

    We also owe a big thank you to Danny Peter, Bill Simpson and Bill Gibson.  They each provided professional expertise in efforts to upgrade the village this year. 

  • LETTER: Returned wallet instills faith in people

    While visiting in Tell City for Schweizer Fest Saturday, I lost my billfold. When I became aware of it I was able to locate it through some helpful policemen.

    It was found by Paul R. Berger and given to them. Upon retrieving it at their police station the lady on duty had called several family members before she was able to get in touch with me.

    Thanks does not seem adequate enough to all involved but I appreciate their help very much.

  • LETTER: Trio of back-to-school events big successes

    The Cannelton, Perry Central and Tell City-Troy Township schools would like to thank all the individuals, organizations and businesses that contributed to the success of this year’s back-to-school cookouts.

    The turnouts were great with thousands of students and parents who enjoyed getting together with their friends, teachers and other Perry County families to kick off the new school year during these annual fun events.

    The students and their families visiting at the three school sites appreciated the free school supplies and food.

  • LETTER: Knee replacement requires buddy system

    When you have a knee replacement, it should be done on a buddy system. When you say you are tired, the buddy should say do 30 more reps.

    I did not have a buddy. I remember we had a six-hour meeting and when I saw all of that metal that would be going into my left knee, I wanted to change my mind. But I had seen my x-ray and my left knee was a mess.

    The knee surgery took place and you were to stay at the first hospital for only three days. Actually you were supposed to start exercising the first night.
