  • Community made 4-H event a success

    The Perry County 4-H Council would like to take this opportunity to thank the Junior Leaders, fairgrounds committee, livestock committee, local 4-H clubs, Chris Kessens, Chris Tempel and all who helped cook the food, and everyone else who helped with the dinner and auction that was held on Nov 4.

    Your support is greatly appreciated and a great help to the program. Special thanks to all the donors:

  • Making Cannelton Christmases brighter

    Another Christmas season is upon us and it is time to decorate the city. As you may know, it has been decades since the city, or any group supporting the city, has purchased commercial quality Christmas decorations to hang on the light poles along Highway 66 and Washington Street (Main Street).

  • City needs to encourage, not push away, home-based businesses

    I am concerned about the proposed limitation on home based businesses recently summarized in the News, as having received a “First Reading” at City Counsel. While the complete act was not printed, it did note that under the act, a home-based business could not occupy more than 15 percent of the residence.

  • Horse Rescue thanks generous community

    Horse Rescue South would like to thank all these businesses and great people for all the donations and help to make our fundraisers a success.

  • HabiTREE Event a wonderful success

    Thank you to all of the businesses, organizations and individuals that graciously made donations for the Perry County Habitat for Humanity HabiTREE event.   The event was held on Friday, Nov. 10, to fundraise for the 20th home that will be built in Perry County in 2018. 

  • Many hands made Explosion of Fun a hit

    Community Christian Church would like to thank the following local businesses for contributing items that were used as prizes at our Halloween alternative, “Explosion of Fun” on Oct. 31.

    The event was attended by more than 900 visitors and was a rollicking success.

  • Deforestation a sordid boon

    I just lost much of the remaining respect I still had for the state Division of Forestry with their intent to sell nearly 2,000 old-growth trees in Brown County. We lost a chance to preserve for future generations a reminder of how the landscape looked in the 1700s. A sordid boon. The sale price is only a drop in the bucket of state forest management. It is yet another example of an authentic and unspoiled place losing its distinctive cultural and environmental character in the name of homogenization and short-term profit.

  • Thanks for making fall fest wonderful
  • Bell ringers needed

    I am once again in need of your help. I am the Kettle Coordinator for the Salvation Army here in Perry County and I am in need of volunteer bell ringers. Perhaps you, your family, business, church, club, or civic organization would be willing to ring bells for us this season.

  • Knits and Knots touches lives

    A big thank you from Knits and Knots to all who helped knit or crochet items, donated yarn or money to purchase yarn in 2017.

    We delivered a total of 1,815 items to 15 different agencies. This means more than 1,800 lives have been touched by your gifts and talents. Thanks, again.
