  • Perry Central’s eclipse watch a success

    The Great American Eclipse was an exciting event for Perry Central students, thanks to the efforts and generosity of our community. Perry Central Community Schools would like to extend a huge thank you to all those who made it a day that students will remember by donating time and money to supply certified viewing glasses and documenting the event.

  • Schweizer Fest exhibit honored troops

    The Perry County Marines Detachment 1398 would like to thank Buzz Smith of the Easter Seals Cross Roads for bringing the Remember our Fallen Soldiers Memorial to Tell City during the Schweizer Fest and Mayor Jim Adams for allowing us to set it up in City Hall for everyone to see and remember.

  • Transportation change requests at William Tell Elementary

    Due to an excessive number of transportation change requests and to ensure the safety of all elementary students, we will no longer be accepting transportation changes via phone at William Tell Elementary.

    We have always encouraged parents to choose one destination for their students. This destination should be where the student most frequently travels after school.

    We do understand that occasionally situations arise that require parents to alter that destination, and we do plan to allow for that.

  • We shouldn’t condone animal cruelty

    Regarding the photo in a recent edition of the Perry County News showcasing the pig chasing/wrestling “contest” at the 4-H fair:  please allow a brief protestation.

  • City needs to end annexation efforts

    It is irresponsible for Tell City to continue the annexation fight. It will take over 150 years for them to recoup $10,010,550 at 1-percent interest. That’s providing water, sewer, fire hydrants, and electric for 157 houses, while losing $120,000 the first three years. That’s if they get bond money.

    Is this is about the new totally electric hospital being in the city limits? Well that idea is a wash. They are laying people off.

    If this is about population growth, Tell City is losing people.

  • Kids Fest a big success

    On behalf of Cannelton Elementary School, I would like to personally thank everyone involved in the success of out Kids Fest on July 27.

    Through the generosity of our communities’ donations, students were able to leave with a backpack filled full of supplies. The Cannelton Elementary School staff, as well as the students, truly appreciate everything you did and do for us.

  • Interesting Arlington Cemetery facts

    Here are some facts about Arlington Cemetery you may find interesting.

    • How many steps does the guard take on his walk across the tomb of the “Unknown Soldier” and why? 21 steps, it alludes to the 21 gun salute which is the highest to the given to any military or foreign dignitary.

    • How long does he hesitate after his about face to begin his return walk? 21 seconds for same reason as above.

    • Why are his gloves wet?

    His gloves are moistened to prevent his losing his grip on the rifle.

  • Tree work in City Hall Park appreciated

    The Schweizer Fest committee would like to thank the fine crew on the Tell City Electric Department for removing and trimming diseased and damaged trees from the City Hall Park prior to the festivities.

    While we hate to see any trees cut down, the safety of all attending the festival is always our primary concern. Too many branches have been falling from those trees sometimes without being caused by weather and high winds.
