  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.”
