Letters

  • 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.”

  • FACEBOOK POSTING: Woman saved by blood donors wants to pay it back
  • LETTER: Red Cross appreciates United Way support

    The American Red Cross, through the support of donors like United Way of Perry County, offers a wide range of services to help our neighbors, friends and family members throughout Perry County.

    Local volunteers assist individuals who lose their homes to a fire or natural disaster, assist our first responders who work tirelessly to save lives, provide communication services and financial assistance to members of the armed forces, provide nearly half our nation’s blood supply, and teach lifesaving CPR and other educational courses.

  • LETTER: Scouts benefit from your United Way gifts

    Boy Scout Troop 192 of Tell City has been active in the community since receiving their first charter in 1930.

    So far, nearly 50 Scouts have earned the rank of Eagle, with four more Scouts about ready to achieve the rank. The troop has been very active in the community by donating their time at various functions.

  • LETTER: Perry County’s veterans groups continue long tradition of honoring those who served

    The rendering of military funeral honors is a way to show the nation’s deep gratitude to those who, in times of war and peace, have faithfully defended our country. This ceremonial paying of respect is the final demonstration a grateful nation can provide to the veterans’ family and friends. Military funeral honors are a long-standing tradition within the armed forces. This tradition is carried on by those who become members of our veteran organizations such as the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the American Legion.

  • LETTER: Interested in learning about TC Kiwanis?

    The Tell City Kiwanis has been an active organization in our community since May 1927. The organization’s focus is to serve children.

  • LETTER: Nation’s Constitution serves us every day

    Sept. 17-23 begins the national celebration of Constitution Week. It is a weeklong celebration of remembering the most important document in our nation, a document that allows us to maintain our liberties and freedom.

    We often take for granted the simple things in our lives, never really giving much thought of our freedom of free speech, freedom to choose our own religion, our right to bear arms, or to assemble and petition.

    We are the greatest country in the world for many reasons but our Constitution allows us to be.
