  • LETTER: Let’s keep guns out of the hands of criminals

    I do not own an assault weapon, nor do I have any desire to own one. In fact there’s no reason for me to have one, no reason for you to have one either. But to ban them ?

    What’s next? Pistols, shotguns, bows and arrows? You say that will never happen. Let’s hope not. But we all know things change. Politicians change from one week to the next.

    Whatever’s hot today. That’s what they’ll vote for, what they think will get them future votes.

  • LETTER: TCHS Class of 1962 generous to others

    The Council on Agencies in Tell City would like to thank the Tell City High School Class of 1962 for their recent financial donation.

    These funds, collected in lieu of a gift exchange during the group’s Christmas party, will be especially beneficial as the council struggles to keep up with the increasing number of families who find it difficult to purchase the food they need.

    Local donations and funds provided by the United Way enable our county’s food pantries to operate successfully.

  • LETTER: Please get your firearms facts straight

    In reference to your recent editorial, it is extremely difficult to have a reasoned discussion concerning gun control when proponents use misleading, intentionally demonized definitions.

    You show a total lack of understanding concerning “assault weapons” since that term does not exist in military lexicon because, oddly enough, they consider all weapons systems to be “assault weapons.”

  • LETTER: Crisis Connection joins anti-stalking efforts

    January is National Stalking Awareness Month, a time to focus on a crime that affected 6.6 million victims in one year. One in six women and one in 19 men will be stalked. The theme – “Stalking: Know It. Name It. Stop It.” – challenges the nation to fight this dangerous crime by learning more about it.

    Stalking is a crime in all 50 states, the U.S. territories and the District of Columbia, yet many victims and criminal-justice professionals underestimate its seriousness and impact.

  • LETTER: Let’s thank our volunteer firefighters

    Like American veterans, America’s volunteer firefighters have borne the battle in fighting fires.

    Their mission is to save lives and property. Because of this, they all serve with a noble purpose.

    They place a high value on teamwork and self-discipline, integrity and initiative, commitment and compassion.

    These are the same attributes as professional firefighters.

  • LETTER: Nation needs to comfort those who suffer

    A few weeks ago my sister told me how her little daughter Addyson was watching “Toy Story” and began to cry during a scene.

    The scene that brought her to tears was when Andy, a young boy who once cherished and loved his favorite toy named Woody, began to grow older. And as Andy grew older the joy and happiness that the toy once brought to him faded away.

  • LETTER: Village’s candlelight tour was a big success

    Shubael Little Pioneer Village would like to thank all the volunteers for their help with the candlelight Tour held Dec. 9. We would also like to thank all visitors for supporting this project. It is our hope that all the visitors had a memorable time at the village.

    We want to thank each you for your donations of food and money that we dispersed between our local area food banks. They were very appreciative of the donations. Thanks again.

  • Editor’s Santa column drew smiles

    I was reading the article written to Santa from our editor. I first passed it to read other parts of the paper.

    As I perused the pages, I found I kept going back to the article. I often read his articles and am quite fond of nearly all of them.

    While reading, I found myself smiling and by story’s end I realized that I had even broken into a full snicker a couple of times. It’s my opinion that this was a well-written, timely and funny article.

  • A big thank you to Rolling Thunder

    On behalf of the Perry County Council on Aging and all those we serve, I would like to thank Rolling Thunder Indiana Chapter 7 for their continued donations, which make our organization able to provide transportation services for our Perry County residents.

    We would also like to thank Evangelical United Church of Christ for the generous donation to our Senior Center. Once again Perry County Council on Aging has received local support from these organizations and it is greatly appreciated.

  • Emergency services great in Perry County

    My husband and I were visiting my family in Tell City when my husband had a heart attack. I was able to get him to the Perry County Memorial Hospital in less than 10 minutes, where they stabilized him during his attack.

    He was then taken by ambulance to St. Mary’s Medical Center in Evansville to undergo a heart-catheterization procedure that will give him a new lease on life.
