  • LETTER: Community’s support made our lives better

    I do not really know of everyone who made our life so great. Maybe I should say thanks to our local Perry County News. It made no matter what we wanted in the newspaper, they put it in there.

  • LETTER: Temporary foundry workers earn less pay

    I was reading the March 4 issue of the Perry County News and saw the comment in the story that when Waupaca first came to town, the first 500 employees were easy to find. Then they claimed that they struggled to find people to fill jobs.

    I say bull crap! I think there are plenty of people who can do the job and are perfectly willing but Waupaca only wants to hire through temporary services. How can people not be good enough to work a full-time job with full benefits and full pay but are good enough to work the same job under temporary conditions for less pay?

  • LETTER: Family of hall-of-fame inductee pleased

    Greetings from northern Indiana. My sister, Kathleen Liddy (Kramer), was born in 1959 in Tell City and I was born in 1960 in Tell City. Both of us enjoyed a recent weekend in Tell City. Kath lives in Forth Wayne and I live in Kendallville.

    We attended the Tell City High School Athletic Hall of Fame induction ceremony Feb. 16 to honor our father, Norman Kramer, a 2013 class inductee.

  • LETTER: Local Humane Society members support agriculture, hunting and fishing rights

    To everyone concerned with animal issues in Perry County Feb. 22, citizens of Perry County met with state Sen. Richard Young and state Rep. Lloyd Arnold. Many issues were discussed, but one that was brought up was pending legislation – Senate Joint Resolution 7 – concerning the rights to hunt, fish and crow crops.

  • LETTER: The nation’s children who might have been

    Four decades ago, on Jan. 22, our Supreme Court voted to legalize abortion. There was an outcry from Americans who realized the sacredness of life in the womb. The outcry was ignored and finally it subsided. A battle had been fought and a victory secured for those who believed babies could be “eliminated” just because they were unwanted.

  • LETTER: Rumble strips needed at intersection

    I am writing in regard to the dangerous intersection at Indiana 37 and Indiana 237.

    Why hasn’t the state put in some rumble strips on Indiana 237? If you are drowsy or on your phone or otherwise not paying attention, you will miss the   flashing yellow light, but two or three sets of rumble strips will certainly get your attention.

    If you go to neighboring counties, you will hit rumble strips before entering a dangerous intersection.
