Letters

  • Schnell enjoyed Perry Central hospitality

    Well, I got to visit Perry County and Perry Central High School again, thanks to my oldest niece, Linda, and her husband, Herb, from Louisville, Ky.
    They enjoyed beautiful Perry County as much as I did.

    The occasion was the Perry Central vs. Mater Dei basketball game Dec. 14. The Commodores came out on top, winning by six points. Bravo for the Commodores.

    Every time I enter the Perry Central School I am impressed; it gives me the feeling that the Perry Central folks really care about their schools. Hurray for them.

  • Good hunters respect the game they pursue

    This letter is in response to the letters written by William Wilson  (“Animals deserve rights”) and (“Hunters preserve traditions”) by the officers and members of the Southern Indiana Squirrel Hunters Club and Perry County Coon Club.

    It seems to me that both sides in this argument have the same problem as many other public officials currently holding office, right on up to the U.S. Congress.

  • Volunteers brightened residents’ holidays

    The holiday season has come to an end and once again I want to thank the wonderful people in this community and the surrounding communities for helping to make the Christmas season so enjoyable for the residents at Golden Living Center-Lincoln Hills.

    Thank you for including residents’ names on the “Giving Trees” and thank you to those who purchased gifts. When they opened the gifts you could see a sparkle of anticipation in their eyes. Some even had tears in their eyes they were so grateful. The gifts were very much appreciated.

  • Hunters preserve proud American traditions

    This letter is being written in response to the letter written by William Wilson of Jeffersonville in last Monday’s paper. The title to his letter was “Animals deserve basic legal rights, too.”

    In reading his letter we realize he is an animal-rights activist. Supposedly he is against rodeos as he states calves should not be roped and bulls should not be ridden. Then later in his letter he states that we do not have permission to make fur coats or use animals for medical experiments.

  • Animals deserve basic legal rights, too

    Who decides what is property? It’s the people who claim ownership. At one-time, African-Americans were considered property. What gave those people the right to do that?

    Under current law, domestic animals are considered as property. Who gave us that right? Many people point to the Bible, which says God let man rule over his creation. If I were to create something and tell you to take care of it, that does not make it your property.

    Man can create things like houses, furniture, machines, etc., but only God can create life.

  • Column lacked respect for city council

    I was somewhat surprised and also saddened that the managing editor of the News (Kevin Koelling’s Dec. 16 column “Let’s make residents put their toys away.”) appeared to me, seemed to degrade two present city council members concerning their efforts to investigate possibilities of improving the visual appearances of our fair city’s streets.

  • Legion Post 142, Auxiliary, Sons of the Legion thank all who made Cannelton parade a success

    Cannelton American Legion Post 142, Auxiliary and Sons of the American Legion wish to thank everyone who participated, helped organize and worked this year’s 2013 annual Christmas Parade.

  • Thanks for the get-well wishes

    After teaching for 21.5 years with perfect attendance, mostly at the Perry Central Community School Corp., I landed in the hospital for about a week. Four things hit me all at one time.

    At one of my post-visits with the doc, he said to me, “You were a lot sicker then you thought you were.” Well, I thanked God that I survived and I am very happy that I can still support the Perry Central Commodores.

    I appreciate the fact that 32 co-workers with whom I worked at Perry Central signed a huge 22-inch by 28-inch Super Commodore get well card.

  • Jesus would not turn a blind eye

    I read the Dec. 9 article by Elijah Bryant “Same Sex ban a terrible mistake.” I believe the writer’s comments about “What would Jesus do?”

    I do not believe he would turn just the blind eye, but instead say “Who will cast the stone?

    Then with both eyes, he would look straight to gays and say, “go and sin no more.”

  • Too many people living off our money

    In response to the News’ Nov. 25 editorial, “Wanted: Politicians with backbones,” I agree with the first two paragraphs. Two examples may need some clarification.

    This article was obviously written by a liberal Democrat. Let me say that in my opinion, the current president and other elected Democrats were voted by people of which 95 percent fall into one of three major categories: those who are either totally uninformed, unbelievably ignorant or those living on welfare and who want to stay there.
