  • 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: Youth Refuge thanks its many supporters

    The volunteers of the Youth Refuge sponsored by First Baptist Church would like to thank everyone who came and supported such a wonderful cause.

    We had a very successful day.  We would like to thank the following businesses who donated items that contributed to the success: Subway, Dairy Queen, Wendy's, Sonic, Papa John's, Long John Silver's, Haunstein's, Dr. Rudolph’s office, Walls, Mick's, Iron Gate, Baskets, Bunnies Bears & More and Tell City Bowling Center.

  • 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. The many volunteers from Council 1172 stood in the rain for two days, but were successful in reaching a monetary value of more than $3,500. These donations will be contributed equally to the programs for mentally challenged citizens of Perry County.

  • LETTER: Derby Riverfest run drew 92 participants

    The Perry County Parks and Recreation Department would like to take this opportunity to thank all the people and organizations that made our 5-kilometer run-walk event successful.

    A total of 92 runners and walkers participated this year.

  • LETTER: Be respectful when setting off fireworks

    Why do Tell City residents need to celebrate with firecracker bombs year-round? Being a stroke victim, even the smallest noises make me anxious and nervous, so I am sure those noises affect seniors as well.

    As I am only in my mid-50s, these types of firecrackers affect small-breed dogs, also. I have a mini Shitzu who tries to hide and even the thunder jacket I bought for her does not comfort here.

    So is it necessary to celebrate with such loud fireworks for such a long time?

  • LETTER: Where was outrage over previous phone scandals?

    I’m responding to the editorial of the Perry County News of May 27, 2013, which rightly criticized the Obama Administration for the current Associated Press scandal involving the Department of Justice Secretly intercepting and seizing phone records of that news organization and consideration to charging a news correspondent with a crime.

  • LETTER: Unless we rise up, government will never change

    I agree with Lee Hamilton about Congress except for one thing. He doesn’t point out that Congress has passed more than 30 bipartisan jobs bills and sent them to the Senate. So what is the problem? Harry Reid doesn’t let the bills be brought to the floor for votes. Why would he be doing this? Because the progressive Democrats, not all Democrats, are trying to show that the Republican Congress can’t create job bills so the Democrats can win the Congress back.
