  • LETTER: Gasification project getting needed review

    More than six years ago, then Gov. Mitch Daniels made the announcement that a synthetic-gas plant was to be built in southwest Indiana. The project was to bring hundreds of jobs and use Indiana coal to produce synthetic gas at a price lower than natural gas.

    The carbon dioxide that would be produced would be captured and sent to Louisiana through a pipeline. It would be pumped into existing oil wells for enhanced oil recovery.

  • LETTER: Many hands made trivia night a success

    On behalf of the Perry County Foundation’s board of trustees, we would like to thank all the participants, sponsors, donors and volunteers who participated in the foundation’s 2013 Trivia Night. We hope everyone had a great time.

    We are also pleased to award $500 to the winning team’s favorite charity, Table of Blessings. The $500 came from the proceeds made during the event.

    Sponsors, donors and participants helped award that $500, so we also want to thank everyone for helping the community.

  • LETTER: Christmas brightened for 660 children

    The United Way of Perry County would like to thank all the members of our community who helped make Christmas brighter for more than 660 children through the Holiday Helpers United Christmas Assistance Program. It was truly a community wide effort.

  • LETTER: Family’s holiday was ruined by thieves

    My family moved to Tell City from upstate New York in July and we all fell in love with the city. My children are thriving, my wife and I have made friends and we were really beginning to think this was the place to put down roots.  

    Then we went to New York for the holidays to visit family.

    Our house was broken into, and our TV, computer, video games and other items were stolen. No one was home and no one was hurt – thank goodness – but my family has never experienced anything like this before, and we are all shaken.

  • LETTER: A generous county made benefit a success

    The Zach Taylor Benefit was a huge success and we would like to thank the following people and organizations: Anderson Township, Central Perry and Tell City fire department members and their wives; Perry County Rescue Squad members and wives and the Fraternal Order of Police members and wives.

    To all of the businesses and individuals in Perry, Spencer and Dubois counties who donated items for the auction, thank you. There are so many that it would take a whole page to list you all individually. Your gracious donations do not go unnoticed.

  • LETTER: The gun-control hypocrisy of fat cats

    Ok, Chris Christie, I’ll see your reprehensible and raise you two contemptible.

    What is this all about? The National Rifle Association ran a video advertisement pointing out the hypocrisy of President Obama and many politicians and media celebrities sending their children to schools protected by armed guards, while at the same time criticizing and ridiculing the NRA for recommending that all schools have armed guards.

  • LETTER: Community continues its long support of Tell City Kiwanis’ food-basket program

    The Tell City Kiwanis Club would like to thank the many donors to the Kiwanis Christmas Basket Program this year. Your donations, totaling $15,736, helped make Christmas brighter for hundreds of families.

    Tell City Kiwanians provided 319 food baskets to families in Tell City, Cannelton, Troy and some rural areas while our partners at Perry Central Outreach provided 52 baskets at Perry Central with help from Tell City Kiwanis.

    Many thanks to following Kiwanians and volunteers who helped distribute the baskets:

  • LETTER: Thanks for supporting the Humane Society

    The Humane Society of Perry County would like to thank all the people, businesses and veterinarians who make it possible to continue helping responsible animal owners in our county. If it were not for your generous donations, we could not continue with our projects of helping to spay and neuter Perry County animals. Also the ability to help provide dog houses or the straw giveaway in the fall would not be possible.

  • LETTER: Law-enforcement officers are our hometown heroes

    Our law-enforcement officers are the first line of defense against crime. They conduct themselves in a manner that supports, maintains and defends the Constitution of the state of Indiana and the United States. While performing their duties, they risk their own lives to save the lives of others.

    The law-enforcement officer faces difficult challenges every day.

  • LETTER: Thank you to everyone for making Tell City’s New Year’s Eve celebration a hit

    On behalf of the Perry County Quality of Life Committee, we would like to extend our thanks to so many partners who assisted us in the first-ever Silversternacht celebration on New Year’s Eve.
