  • LETTER: Widow’s Barrel relies on community’s support

    In November of 2002, we opened the Widow’s Barrel Food Pantry. It was very difficult to raise money for food, because we had such a great need. But thanks to the United Way of Perry County, we have been able to meet that need for the past several years.

  • LETTER: Hospital’s Companion Care program relies on United Way

    At this time, the Companion Care staff at Perry County Memorial Hospital would like to take the opportunity to thank the many individuals and business in our community who have given donations to the United Way of Perry County in the past. These donations have touched the lives of many of our clients in a way you will never know. The United Way donations support the entire community in the areas of health and human services.

  • LETTER: Local United Way empowers Salvation Army efforts

    I am writing you today to encourage your readers to support the United Way of Perry County during their 2012 fund raising campaign.

    The Salvation Army Perry County Service Extension unit is proud to be a UWPC partner. The primary goal of The Salvation Army Service Extension program is to provide emergency financial assistance to people in need throughout the community.

  • LETTER: America quickly moving in wrong direction

    First I have not met you personally. I was raised in Perry County, married a local girl and moved to Paducah, Ky., in 1952, following my work in construction. In 1958 we moved to Pensacola, Fla., again following my work and raising my family here and I remain here now. Most of my family remains in Perry County.

    A couple of years ago, I subscribed to The Perry County News and I enjoy reading it but many changes have taken place as well as new names.

  • LETTER: BMV’s lack of communication frustrating

    In April of 2010, I was convicted of operating a vehicle while intoxicated for driving with .08 percent alcohol level. I was guilty and received one year of probation with alcohol and drug testing monthly, Southern Hills counseling, five days in jail, almost $5,000 in cost and fines and required to carry high risk insurance for three years. Everything was fine until Dec. 9, when I decided to combine my homeowners insurance with my car. The insurance company canceled my old policy and wrote a new one but made a mistake - like we all do from time to time.

  • LETTER: Fall festival enjoys tremendous support

    Our 67th Annual Fall Festival Oct. 24 enjoyed a tremendous turnout from students, staff and community supporters.

  • LETTER: Electric department requires customers to give out Social Security numbers

  • LETTER: Humane Society collecting used doghouses

    The Humane Society of Perry County is asking for the community’s help to donate used doghouses to those in need.

    Each December, the society tries to provide doghouses, but the need is always greater than the supply. We have been fortunate to have a woodcrafter donate time and skill for this endeavor so we can make new houses if possible.

    To donate used doghouses, please contact me at 836-4842. You can also make monetary donations by mailing them to P.O. Box 21, Tell City, IN 47586.

  • LETTER: Cemetery thieves a disgrace

    I am in agreement with a recent letter I saw in The Perry County News dated Oct. 29, 2012.

    I went to visit my mother’s gravesite at St. Mary’s Cemetery and was shocked to see that someone stole the beautiful saddle with fall flowers and flowers in vase that my sister, my stepfather and I had placed there the week before.

    You are not only robbing from the deceased, but also robbing from family and friends of the peace and joy they receive by visiting and placing items of love.

  • LETTER: Support helps hospital auxiliary’s holiday bazaar succeed

    We want to thank everyone who supported our recently held Perry County Memorial Hospital Auxiliary Holiday Bazaar by buying baked goods and craft items, making gift-shop purchases or bidding on our silent-auction items, or by just enjoying our turkey-and-dressing luncheon. Also, a special thanks to all the auxiliary members who worked that day, prepared baked items or made something for our craft sale. It takes a lot of members, help from the hospital and the kitchen staff, and the community members who attended to make this a successful event every year.
