• Stuff the Bus donations will help hundreds of students

    Thank you, thank you, thank you to Wal-Mart, Perry County News, CJ 105.7 and staff Cindi Taylor and Rob Nichols, all our dedicated volunteers and to all the generous donors who helped create another very successful “Stuff the Bus” school supply drive on July 22-23.

    On behalf of the United Way of Perry County Board of Trustees, I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the residents of our community who helped support our tenth annual Stuff the Bus school supply drive for students in need.

  • More jobs for Hoosiers

    State Sen. Erin Houchin

    Recent economic reports show Indiana’s economy continues to grow stronger. The state’s labor force participation is at its highest level since 2009, and private sector employment levels hover at an all-time high.

    These reports confirm what Hoosiers know to be true: Indiana is a great place to live, work and raise a family.

  • Supporters made team trip possible

    During the week of July 12-17, the Tell City High School Boys Cross Country Club went on a trip to Colorado. While there, we visited Great Sand Dunes National Park and Adams State University. Then we climbed Mount Elbert, the highest peak in Colorado. This was a great bonding experience for the boys as well a great week of training.

    This trip could not have been possible without the following sponsors: ARI, Tom McCart, Engineer  Associates, Dean Boerste, Thomas Glass, Dauby’s Body Shop, Double Diamond Supply, Kevin Waninger, The Post and Logos.

  • If Hillary wins, we’re all in trouble

    I read Mr. Adkins column and then I read it again. There seemed to be something missing. Then it hit me. With somebody as deceitful as Mrs. Clinton, there has to be more. With all the illegal, irresponsible things she has done, all the cover-ups, there has to be more. A lot more.

    But this was a fantastic article. I wish everybody would cut out the article and hang it on their ‘fridge’. Then when November rolls around take it down and read it over and over.

    Because if Hillary wins, we are in deep, deep trouble.

  • Thanks for making arts evening a success

    On Saturday, July 9, the Tell City Regional Arts Association hosted An Evening of Art at City Hall in Tell City. This first time event inside the building included wine and cheese tastings, displays of art by local artists and fellowship by all who attended.

  • Clinton the wrong choice for several reasons

    I would like to respond to the guest columnist of July 14, because I found several areas that were presented that were taken out of context, clearly, to misrepresent what the original author had said.

    The article was to address two basic concerns: 1) the contempt directed at Hillary Clinton; and 2) the reasons that a Trump election would be a mistake of epic proportions.

  • Thanks for support to historic Shubael village

    A big thumbs up to Mulzer Crushed Stone Co. of Tell City.

    Shubael Little Pioneer Village is a nonprofit 501C 3 organization dedicated to historical preservation and education.  We host an open house annually and invite the public to experience life as our ancestors did in the mid to late 1850’s. We also host student groups from surrounding areas. 

  • Moose picnic another success

    Our annual Summer Fest Picnic and chicken and pork chop dinner sales this year was another success for our Lodge. Thanks to the patrons of Tell City and the surrounding areas for their huge support. Special thanks goes out to our fireworks sponsors. We could not have pulled it off without your help. Thank you all so much.

  • Help sought on the road to recovery

    My name is Damon McCallister. I was arrested April 23, 2012, at a meth lab on 18th Street in Tell City.

    At the time, I was in full blown addiction and refused to admit that I was powerless over my addiction.  I sat in the old county jail until February or March of 2013 when I finally realized that I needed help and couldn’t get it on my own.

    I was sent to prison and had many people around who know how to work the system, as well as “old timers” who showed me that this is not the life someone like me could live.

  • Hold politicians to a higher standard

    Most people have it all wrong. The “Rule of Law” doesn’t mean that laws apply to common folk. Heck, even North Koreans have that. Rule of Law means that nobody, especially among the ruling class, is above the law.

    The principle is that the greater the power, the greater the danger; so the greater the accountability. Consequences are greater when rulers make mistakes, or commit crimes, so we have constitutions as a leash on politicians, not on us regular humans.
