Letters

  • LETTER: Zoning changes will provide boost for new business

    Editor’s Note: This letter makes reference to a December 2012 story on the Tell City zoning board’s rezoning of land for storage units along Dauby Lane.

    I understand that residents are concerned about the unsightly or unkept units, but I also understand the need for the secured storage units. As residents of a small community, we should do whatever we can to support small businesses that provide a service. The success of their business depends on us and their ability to provide their service, in this case, a clean and secure unit for rent.

  • LETTER: Erin Owen, family thankful for support

    I would like to thank the many people who have kept me in their thoughts and prayers since February. And to anyone who sent donations, purchased T-shirts, brought food after my surgery and continue to give support, I want to thank you, too.

    I would like to thank everyone who helped to make the cancer benefit in my honor a success. To Danielle Kirtley for organizing the event, donating her time and support.

  • LETTER: Knights of Columbus grateful for aid

    The Knights of Columbus would like to thank the many area businesses that donated items for our Aug. 24 event. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

  • LETTER: Great hosts made Greener Pastures fun

    On Aug. 27, Justin and Amber Roth on Eureka Road in Spencer County opened up their farm to the public for a grazing field day called Greener Pastures.

    This is an event that Perry, Spencer and Dubois counties host together every three years. This year happened to be Spencer County’s turn and Justin Roth graciously agreed to host the event. They were so easy going and great to work with, that they made the planning process flow effortlessly.

  • LETTER: Habitat for Humanity grateful for support

    We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who stopped by the Perry County Habitat for Humanity booth at Schweizer Fest this year.

    We hope you enjoyed our homemade cobbler and ice cream despite the rainy weather.

    We appreciate your continued support.

    If anyone is interested in working with Habitat to build and purchase a home, please call the Habitat office at 547-4805 for an application.

    Habitat is always looking for volunteers interested in our building projects and working with our partner families as well.

  • LETTER: Pet show’s success a credit to many

    The Humane Society of Perry County would like to thank all the participants of the Schweizer Fest Pet Show. We had a great turnout which included some unusual pets, a bunny, goat and snake.

    We also thank the community businesses for their donations: Orscheln Farm & Home Supply, Tractor Supply, Cash Saver, Noble’s IGA, Coca-Cola, Old National, German American, Fifth Third, All About You and Greenwood Animal Hospital.

  • LETTER: Help working families rather than give tax subsidies to ship jobs overseas

    Talk about kicking someone when she’s down: a woman who lost her job when the AJ Wright distribution center in South Bend shut down was told her unemployment benefits will be trimmed by over 10 percent, thanks to the mindless federal budget cut known as the “sequester.” Meanwhile, major corporations continue to get huge tax subsidies from Washington to ship jobs overseas.

  • LETTER: Schweizer Fest silent auction support will battle Alzheimer’s

    On behalf of the Alzheimer’s Association team, Kroessman’s Krusaders I want to thank the following Perry County artists for their kind donation of art for our Schweizer Fest silent auction: Lynn Dauby, Rachel Decker, Laura Dinkle, Shelly Goodrich, Nita Claise, Mickey McMahon, Terri Theis and Nancy Poehlein.

    We raised a total of $374 toward our $5,000 goal.

  • LETTER: Supporters making things happen at village

    The Shuabel Little Pioneer Village would like to publicly thank Southern Indiana Power for a $1,500 grant to which Mulzer Crushed Stone added $500 for materials to be used to improve our access road.

    Development and upkeep are constant expenses at the village. And we do appreciate these two local businesses for these contributions.  Amy Etienne authored the winning grant.

    We also owe a big thank you to Danny Peter, Bill Simpson and Bill Gibson.  They each provided professional expertise in efforts to upgrade the village this year. 

  • LETTER: Returned wallet instills faith in people

    While visiting in Tell City for Schweizer Fest Saturday, I lost my billfold. When I became aware of it I was able to locate it through some helpful policemen.

    It was found by Paul R. Berger and given to them. Upon retrieving it at their police station the lady on duty had called several family members before she was able to get in touch with me.

    Thanks does not seem adequate enough to all involved but I appreciate their help very much.
