Letters

  • LETTER: D of I members grateful for help

    The Daughters of Isabella would like to thank members and anyone who donated to our St. Elizabeth-Coleman Center in Indianapolis.

    The D of I supports this center, which we helped begin. Next year they will celebrate their 100th anniversary. This is also our state’s project.

    Our circle’s collection this year was the largest for St. E’s thus far; also the circle donates more baby items than any other circle in Indiana.

  • LETTER: Thanks for supporting county’s bicentennial

    The Lafayette Spring Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution would like to thank everyone who helped with the Perry County First Family program. There were over 439 applications turned in and confirmed as Perry County First Families. 

  • LETTER: Blame Bush rant is getting far too old

    While I do not typically respond to letters in a tit-for-tat manner, I must thank Mr. Gray for his excellent reply (“GOP had hand in controversies,” Oct. 27 issue) to my original letter (“Vote for Democrats is vote for Obama record,” Oct. 20 issue).

    In his bloviating, extended rant he perfectly illustrates the liberal mindset. No. 1, distort and confuse the facts while mixing in a few actual truths. No. 2 and most importantly, blame Bush.

  • LETTER: Many hands supported fall tour in Rome

    We want to thank everyone who helped make the Fall Festival at Rome successful.

    The News gave us advertising ahead of the event, Noble’s worked with us purchasing the food, and the visitors who came to eat or listen to the band or buy items from the country store.

    We enjoyed having the HouseKats provide music for the event.

  • LETTER: Community support, donations made 69th Cannelton Elementary Fall Fest another big success

    On Oct. 23, Cannelton elementary students and families hosted the 69th annual Parent-Teacher Organization Fall Festival. We had a tremendous turnout and a very successful festival. The Cannelton Elementary School PTO would like to thank the entire faculty, staff, students, parents, grandparents, guardians, community, volunteers and the following individuals and businesses.

  • LETTER: United Way is a great partner to William Tell

    At William Tell Elementary, we recognize the value of celebrating our school community, with a focus on family activities and community outreach. Thanks to support from United Way of Perry County and Title 1, we are able to employ a family outreach coordinator who is responsible for community outreach, such as the following:

    Volunteer community readers are community members who read a book each month to a class of students and revisit that same class each month in order to establish a relationship with the students.

  • Hoch: I have the experience to be prosecutor

    Editor’s Note: Thursday was the last issue for letters to the editor of a political nature. In keeping with past practice, however, candidates are allowed to respond directly to previous letters. The News agreed to publish this letter from Jason Hoch, candidate for prosecutor, in response to Thursday’s letter from Perry County Prosecutor Rod Acchiardo.

  • LETTER: Coyle’s family speaks out on campaign, election

    I am engaged to Chris Coyle and I wanted to take a moment to speak to you about my family and his campaign.

    I knew that when Chris decided to run for office, it was not an individual decision, but a family one. It was not a decision we made lightly. I am not originally from Perry County. I relocated my family here because of all that Perry County has to offer. A large part of that was the school system.

  • An open letter to Perry County Prosecutor Rod Acchiardo on the pending grand jury

    I have learned through various contacts that the current Perry County Prosecutor announced that he would convene a panel forming a grand jury to examine whether “Sheriff Lee Chestnut or any of his subordinates should be indicted for criminal misconduct in connection with the death of the young woman” identified as Whitney N. Turner.

  • LETTER: Thank you for voting Tuesday

    I’m running for a seat on the Tell City-Troy Township School Board. My focus as a school board member is creating an environment where every child has the opportunity to get a quality education.

    This requires small classes, rich curriculum, diverse electives, and advanced placement, career-technical, and vocational courses. Fiscal responsibility is paramount to ensure each dollar is wisely spent to benefit the students first.
