  • LETTER: Do you think Obama should be impeached?

    Editor's note: An incorrect headline appeared over this letter in our print edition.

    I'd like to respond both to GOP politicians along with their Tea Party followers about their accusations that Obama is abusing his power. I'll respond by asking them a few questions.

  • LETTER: Anderson Woods counts on United Way help

    We at Anderson Woods would like to thank United Way of Perry County and the many individuals and businesses who donate to them for their part in helping us further our mission of serving those with special needs in our community.

    For many years now, United Way has provided substantial financial support to our summer camp located near Bristow.

  • LETTER: Courcier family roots run deep in our county

    I couldn’t help but want to add to your story of Courcier Hill, to bring to life the people who bear its name. So, often names that were once prominent in our county’s history, like time, simply fade away and becomes forgotten memories.

    This family, believe it or not, still has many descendants in Perry County yet today, but many may not be aware of the great tribute their family did for our country in several of our greatest conflicts.
