  • TC lip-sync competition was oh, so cool

  • A poem for Mother’s Day

    Editor’s note: Mary Sommer, who is the News’ Gerald correspondent, provided this poem to mark Sunday’s observance of Mother’s Day. The poem was written in 1932 by her mother, Allie Glodeane Thomas.

    She was born in Hancock County, Ky., in 1909, and started writing poetry while she was still in school. When she was 14 years old, her family moved to southern Indiana. She married there, and with her husband, Urban, worked and raised five sons and a daughter. Thomas died in 2004.

  • A few hits and many misses in Legislature

    With the adjournment of the 2015 Indiana General Assembly, elected officials from around the state, including our own representative and senator, will soon release their “legislative summaries.”

    I have followed the legislature very closely this spring. The following is my critique of their work.

  • K of C’s 2015 Tootsie Roll drive a success

  • Retired teacher proud of Perry Central

    I read with interest a story in the March 19 issue of the Perry County News titled “Perry Central student success linked to strong support programs.”

    I congratulate Perry Central folks for providing such programs for students. It demonstrates real teamwork and dedication.

  • Hoosiers deserve annexation reform

    Indiana Farm Bureau and its members are not opposed to annexation when it is voluntary. However, the forced annexation process that Indiana currently allows is heavily weighted in favor of cities and towns. That is simply not fair.

    If the leaders of a city or town decide they want to annex an area and the landowners are not willing to be annexed, those landowners have two alternatives: Give in, or take the town to court.

    The lives of those landowners will change overnight. They cannot imagine the amount of work or money needed to fight off an annexation.

  • Friends helped couple recover from fire

    We would like to thank the Tell City Fire Department, ambulance and Red Cross for their help during and after the fire we had in October.

    Thanks to everyone who gave before and after Christmas and the Daughters of Isabella for the gift cards. Everything was very much appreciated.

    It’s very hard to get things done without insurance.
