  • 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.

  • LETTER: Big Brothers-Big Sisters rely on UW support

    We are so thankful to have been awarded $7,500 from the United Way of Perry County to support the growth of our mentoring programs in Perry County in 2014.

    I hear from the schools all the time that more kids need mentors, but we did not have the funding to support the need.

    Thank you to every individual and business that supported the United Way campaign – you are now our partner giving more children a caring adult in their life.

    Perry Central Family Outreach is proud to be one of the many community agencies to receive funds from the United Way of Perry County.  

    We are grateful to have benefited too from the United Way Stuff the Bus collection of school supplies which helps stock our school-supply bank for needy students.

  • LETTER: TC cheerleaders thanks community

    The Tell City Junior-Senior High School cheerleaders would like to thank the following for their great support with donations during our annual golf scramble at the Hoosier Heights Country Club.

    We could not have a successful program without the help from great people and businesses like you.

  • LETTER: Writing workshop a big hit despite rain

    Despite a real gullywash rainstorm, the memoir-writing workshop held Oct. 5 at the Perry County Public Library in Tell City was a real success.

    Through insightful and bubbly Nancy Jackson, staff member at the library, opportunities were created to reach family historians and others. It’s great to inject our community with input and viewpoints from a wide range of folks — way to go, Nancy. Thanks also to our library director, John Mundy and all others at the library.

  • LETTER: Rome’s volunteer firefighters thankful

    The Rome Volunteer Fire Dept. would like to take the time to personally thank each and every member of the community who so generously gave their time or made a donation, or who came out and enjoyed the day with us.

    We would also like to give a big “Thank You” to Jim Krutz for the wagon rides and The Country Sunshine Band with Darrel Toomey for the entertainment.

    Without each and every one of you our annual hog roast would not have been a success.

  • LETTER: St. Meinrad Rocks another big success

    I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped make the third annual St. Meinrad Rocks Fest a success. The newly created Spencer County Community Foundation Fund, which will help with the continued preservation of town memorabilia and historical pieces, is off to a good start.

  • LETTER: What has happened to America and us?

    By some standards, one could say that I am old, although I don’t feel old. But I have been around long enough to observe some disturbing changes take place, which makes me say to myself,” what has happened to America?”

    Looking back on when I went to school. I carried a pocketknife, like almost every other young boy and some girls. We did not consider it a weapon. We considered it a tool.
