Letters

  • LETTER: Thanks for the invitation, Cannelton

    I’d like to thank the people of Cannelton for making the New Albanian Brewing Co. feel so much at home during our afternoon at the Heritage Festival Oct.13.

    We had been invited to join a few area wineries this year to offer samples of our beer, and to sell a few pints, too. We met lots of fun people, made some friends and enjoyed the day tremendously.

    The organizers had their act together and the venue for the sampling was comfortable and well-planned.

  • LETTER: Send a message to state Supreme Court

    Two Indiana Supreme Court justices and four Court of Appeals judges are up for retention on Election Day in November. Voters will decide “yes” or “no” on whether to retain each justice or judge. Justices are elected to a term that could potentially last for 10 years. Once the justice is elected it is virtually impossible to remove them.

  • LETTER: Tell City leaders doing fine beautification job

    I want to take this time to let the city leaders of Tell City know what a fine job they are doing to beautify the Fennhaven community.

    I was one of the first people to build a home in Fennhaven back in 1954 when Mr. Roy Fenn was selling lots and trying to create a subdivision overlooking the Ohio River.

    After my first wife died, I eventually remarried and moved to a different area, but I would always take drives back to Fennhaven to see how things were progressing.

  • LETTER: Cannelton’s anniversary parade a success

    We would like to thank everyone who participated and came to see our 175th celebration parade Oct. 7. The following are the winners of the parade contest.

    Community division – first place, Margaret and Larry Schank and Patty Seibert in the Sisters of the Swish 1962 remake; second place, Cannelton Elementary School children float; third place, Girl Scout troop float.

  • LETTER: Many means exist to cut $16 trillion debt

    I wish to respond to Mike Gramelspacher’s letter Aug. 20 concerning hearing that Obama is in love with Marxism. Mike would like for us to believe a story told by John Drew about Obama in 1980 when Obama was 16 or 17 years old. Drew claims he flew from New York to see his girlfriend in south Los Angeles, Orange County, Calif., in December 1980. Those of us who follow our national politics recognize Orange County as radical John Birch Society Republicans.

  • LETTER: ‘Cocky’ May outlines goals for school board

    Hello, My name is Rick May and I am a candidate in the upcoming election this November for a seat on the Tell City-Troy Township School Board. Many of you may know me by my nickname, “Cocky.”               

  • LETTER: Local Perry County residents show community spirit

    On behalf of the Rome Cemetery Association, we wish to thank William J. Coomer and his wife, Carolyn L. Coomer, for their very generous gift of a large parcel of land to expand the already full Lamb-Rowe local landmark cemetery.

    These rural, out-of-the-way cemeteries are often overlooked and almost forgotten. But for the families whose descendants go back centuries and wish to continue their heritage in Perry County, it is important they have the opportunity to do so.

  • LETTER: Tell City is a great hometown

    I’m a traveling surgical technologist and in the past five years I’ve worked in a lot of different places, but Tell City has been the best by far in my opinion.

    It is truly a little hometown where people are still kind to strangers and treat you like family.

    Just in case you don’t know what you have in Tell City let me tell you that the people at Perry County Memorial Hospital are some of the most compassionate caregivers that I have had the privilege to work with.

  • LETTER : Your vote for school board is important

    As you may have heard, I have decided to run for Tell City-Troy Township School Board. I’ve been asked why I would want to be a school-board member.

    My youngest of three children, all of whom attended Tell City Schools, will graduate from Tell City High School this year. The answer is simple: I care about our community.

    My family and I are lifelong residents of Tell City. My wife grew up in Troy and most of her family still resides there. My business, my friends and my future are all connected to Tell City and Troy Township.

  • LETTER: Kleeman explains run for school board

    I believe we have a good school system that with continued investment of adequate resources – labor and financial – effective stewardship, and visionary leadership can be even better. Based on that belief, I am a candidate for a seat on the Tell City-Troy Township School Board in the upcoming election Nov. 6. I am asking for your vote and support.
