  • Column lacked respect for city council

    I was somewhat surprised and also saddened that the managing editor of the News (Kevin Koelling’s Dec. 16 column “Let’s make residents put their toys away.”) appeared to me, seemed to degrade two present city council members concerning their efforts to investigate possibilities of improving the visual appearances of our fair city’s streets.

  • Thanks for the get-well wishes

    After teaching for 21.5 years with perfect attendance, mostly at the Perry Central Community School Corp., I landed in the hospital for about a week. Four things hit me all at one time.

    At one of my post-visits with the doc, he said to me, “You were a lot sicker then you thought you were.” Well, I thanked God that I survived and I am very happy that I can still support the Perry Central Commodores.

    I appreciate the fact that 32 co-workers with whom I worked at Perry Central signed a huge 22-inch by 28-inch Super Commodore get well card.

  • Jesus would not turn a blind eye

    I read the Dec. 9 article by Elijah Bryant “Same Sex ban a terrible mistake.” I believe the writer’s comments about “What would Jesus do?”

    I do not believe he would turn just the blind eye, but instead say “Who will cast the stone?

    Then with both eyes, he would look straight to gays and say, “go and sin no more.”

  • Too many people living off our money

    In response to the News’ Nov. 25 editorial, “Wanted: Politicians with backbones,” I agree with the first two paragraphs. Two examples may need some clarification.

    This article was obviously written by a liberal Democrat. Let me say that in my opinion, the current president and other elected Democrats were voted by people of which 95 percent fall into one of three major categories: those who are either totally uninformed, unbelievably ignorant or those living on welfare and who want to stay there.

  • Hospital’s bazaar had plenty of supporters

    We want to thank everyone who supported our recently held Perry County Memorial Hospital Auxiliary Holiday Bazaar by buying baked goods and craft items, making gift-shop purchases or bidding on our silent-auction items, or by just enjoying our turkey and dressing luncheon.

  • Hot chocolate success at Tell City Schools

    The Tell City Junior-Senior High School Renaissance Program served hot chocolate to its students, staff and faculty this Monday for the holiday season.

    This would not have been possible without the generous donation of many cups from C&S Inc.

    Renaissance and the entire school would like to thank you for your donation.

  • Perry County is a great place to call home

    I was reading the stories on the front page of the Dec. 12 B section. I like them and agree with every one of them.

    Tell City is a small town and it always will be. I have lived here all my life. I cannot see me living anyplace else. Bigger cities have a lot more crime and traffic.

    There are a lot of good people living here. I think it is just a shame though you can’t even buy a 2-by-4 board here in town. Some new stores open, some close. Do you ever get ahead?

  • Horse Rescue group thankful for supporters

    Horse Rescue South Inc. would like to say thank you to the following for their support:

  • 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.
