Letters

  • LETTER: St. Meinrad Rocks another big success

    I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped make the third annual St. Meinrad Rocks Fest a success. The newly created Spencer County Community Foundation Fund, which will help with the continued preservation of town memorabilia and historical pieces, is off to a good start.

  • LETTER: What has happened to America and us?

    By some standards, one could say that I am old, although I don’t feel old. But I have been around long enough to observe some disturbing changes take place, which makes me say to myself,” what has happened to America?”

    Looking back on when I went to school. I carried a pocketknife, like almost every other young boy and some girls. We did not consider it a weapon. We considered it a tool.

  • LETTER: Lydia’s Wish came true thanks to you

    We would like to thank all the people and businesses that donated to Lydia’s (Haycraft’s) cause.

    We would like to give a special thanks to the Firehouse Printing for the flyers, Schwab Safe, Masterbrand Cabinet and Mark Brasseur Roofing for their large donations. Thanks to the Indianapolis Colts for their special gift to Lydia and to Indiana, Evansville and Western Kentucky universities and Evansville Icemen for the tickets.

  • LETTER: This little piggy calls Dauby Lane home now

    I’ve seen a lot of things in the years that I have lived on Dauby Lane. We’ve got skunks and cats, runners and wannabe Daytona 500 drivers who roar up and down all night.

    All in all, it’s a pretty good mix; nothing really out of the ordinary for a semi-country road. That has changed in the past week though. A few days ago my wife spotted a feral pig.

  • LETTER: Helping United Way helps all of us

    As co-chair of the 2013 United Way of Perry County annual drive, I am very proud of our community and the willingness to make things happen. I feel people care and strive in helping make our county a better place to live.

    It is an honor and privilege to be co-chair on this special, commemorative anniversary of 40 years (strong) with United Way!

  • LETTER: Author donating books to Tell City Library

    I have two books I wish to donate to the Genealogy Department of the Tell City branch of the Perry County Public Library.

    The first one is my doctoral dissertation completed at Indiana University in 1975. Its title is “The Attitudes of Indiana Legislators and Lobbyist Toward Postsecondary Education in Indiana.”

    The significance of this study rests on measuring the attitudes of 294 registered lobbyists, 50 senators and 100 representatives toward postsecondary education in the state when there were a number of variables undergoing dynamic change.

  • LETTER: Religions should not impose will on others

    I’m writing a letter in response to seeing a young restaurant worker being taken to task for having a tattoo by some people who evidently had just been to church, at least they said they had.

    In all seriousness they said her body was God’s temple and she was committing a sin by having a tattoo, even though no one in their right mind would find this tattoo offensive.

  • LETTER: Your support of United Way helps Crisis Connection serve vicitims of domestic violence

    Crisis Connection Inc., would like to thank the United Way of Perry County for its financial support of our organization. We would also like to thank everyone who contributed to the United Way of Perry County as you helped make this allocation to us possible.

    Crisis Connection is a local agency that offers a variety of services to families affected by domestic or sexual violence. We serve Perry, Spencer, Dubois, Orange, Crawford, Martin, Daviess, and Pike counties.

  • LETTER: Council on Aging counts on United Way

    The Perry County Council on Aging would like to thank the United Way for their contribution to their senior center, the Older Americans Korner for Service. The funding the United Ways gives to us goes toward so many valuable and worthwhile activities and projects for our seniors in Perry County and without the funding from the United Way, we would not be able to provide the transportation service that helps and serves so many seniors.

    I have tried to summarize just a few of the things we do at the center and where our United Way funding is used.

  • LETTER: Policy threatens financial security of retirees

    A flawed policy initiative called the chained CPI is gaining steam in Washington budget talks that would short-change Hoosiers who receive federal benefits such as Social Security and federal annuities by lowballing their annual cost-of-living adjustments.

    Chained CPI supporters have tried to minimize the consequences it will have on seniors, retired federal employees and veterans by calling it a “technical adjustment” or “better measure of inflation.”
