• Adkins well qualified for city council

    I just want to encourage my friends in Tell City to be very aware of the opportunity that we have to support an excellent leader for our city council. Jim Adkins has been a leader in our community for many years, and is very interested in progress for our community. Jim has taught and mentored many local young people. And, while he and his wife, Leonna, have no children of their own, they often go out of their way to encourage the youth of our city and county.

  • Constitution holds lessons for political-religious views

    On September 20, Presidential Candidate Ben Carson was asked, “Do you believe that Islam is consistent with the Constitution?”

    “No, I do not,” Ben  Carson answered. “I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this  nation.”

  • Feed the Horses event was a big success
  • We should live by God’s word, not man’s

    This is in regard to the Sept. 7 editorial about Kim Davis, (“Clerk who refuses to issue licenses should resign.”)

    I think as a Christian she had the right to stand for what she believes. It’s about the holy word of God we must stand on and not man’s word.

    But not too many people read God’s holy word, sad to say. If God’s people would stand up for the word of God, our nation wouldn’t be in the trouble it’s in.

  • United Way supports Perry County’s seniors


    On behalf of the Perry County Council on Aging, I would like to sincerely thank the United Way of Perry County for all the support in the past and present to our organization.  Our organization provides transportation to all Perry County residents and services to senior citizens at our senior center, called the OAKS, located in Cannelton. 

  • FOP lodge’s Jeep ride a rip-roaring success
  • Taxpayers can no longer afford county workers’ Cadillac insurance plan

    At a time when local governmental bodies throughout our nation are struggling with their budgets, cost-cutting becomes a central issue. But not in Perry County.

    County commissioners, county council and all county employees enjoy a Cadillac health plan that would be the envy of local governments anywhere. They get fat-cat insurance and you and I pay the bill.
