  • LETTER: Assistance available for spaying, neutering

    Spay Neuter Services of Indiana is offering $10 spays and neuters to help pets, pet owners and caretakers.

    The half price special is available to Indiana residents with limited incomes and those who receive public assistance.

    Our Pet Friendly License Plate Committee, appointed by SNSI, oversees the distribution of funds from Indiana Pet Friendly license plate sales which make this program possible.

    Puppies and kittens can be spayed as young as six weeks or two pounds at certain veterinary clinics.

  • LETTER: Shame on the thief who stole from child

    I just wanted to say shame, shame, shame on the person who stole money from my daughter and her family, which was in a room with the door closed and should never had anyone been in there to begin with. What happened was it was my granddaughter’s 11th birthday and my daughter had invited people up for that and to watch a ballgame that was playing that day.

    The boys Tell City 8U All-Stars would like to thank the following businesses and families for their donations this season:

  • LETTER: Green energy costs more than many know

    By MERRILL MATTHEWS
    Guest Columnist

    In all the focus on federal green-energy spending, what’s been overlooked is that states and cities are also neck-deep in renewable energy subsidies.

    In Texas, which is hardly unusual here, Dallas has a green building program that expedites permits for more energy-efficient building projects. And Plano provides a Smart Energy Loan Program “to provide energy-efficiency loans to homeowners.”

  • LETTER: Council on Aging appreciates community support
  • LETTER: 2013 St. Paul Picnic another success

    St. Paul Church Picnic 2013 is finally history. After three weeks, quilt and money raffle winners were announced. God felt rain was necessary in this area June 9 and our picnic was abruptly ended.

    The live auction was held June 21 and the raffles were held June 30. What a long lasting celebration, don’t you think?

    My list of thanks start at the Catholic Ministry Center with Tammy, she had a knack for publicity on the web, and Mandy, you were the guiding light behind this picnic and kept everything on the legal mode.

  • LETTER: New laws impact Hoosiers in lots of ways

    July 1 has come and gone, meaning that most of the legislation passed last session is now law in Indiana. There were a lot of bills filed last session that I needed to research and understand, over a thousand between the two chambers.

    But the legislative process, as convoluted as it may seem, works to vet every issue with fewer than 300 bills becoming laws. I have said it before, but I am truly humbled to be your voice at the Statehouse and honored to have had a hand in crafting these laws.

  • LETTER: U.S. needs to make health care top priority

    Regarding my friend and colleague Ty Guillaume’s July 4 comment on religious liberty and Obamacare, I would only make a couple of points.

    First, when the liberty of one comes up against the liberty of another, there is inevitably a balancing that has to be made. And as has generally been our ideal, it should be made in favor of the one who stands to be hurt the most by the abbreviation of her freedom.

  • LETTER: K of C Tootsie Roll Drive a success

    The Tell City Knights of Columbus Council 1172 would like to thank the entire community for the support of our annual Tootsie Roll Drive.

These donations will be contributed equally to the programs for mentally challenged citizens of Perry County.
