  • LETTER: Become a Junior Achievement volunteer

    Volunteer opportunities exist to assist Junior Achievement programs in Perry County in coming weeks.

    Third-Grade Volunteer Opportunities

    All third-grade classes at Perry Central and William Tell Elementary Schools will participate in the Junior Achievement Our Region program.

  • LETTER: The nation’s children who might have been

    Four decades ago, on Jan. 22, our Supreme Court voted to legalize abortion. There was an outcry from Americans who realized the sacredness of life in the womb. The outcry was ignored and finally it subsided. A battle had been fought and a victory secured for those who believed babies could be “eliminated” just because they were unwanted.

  • LETTER: Rumble strips needed at intersection

    I am writing in regard to the dangerous intersection at Indiana 37 and Indiana 237.

    Why hasn’t the state put in some rumble strips on Indiana 237? If you are drowsy or on your phone or otherwise not paying attention, you will miss the   flashing yellow light, but two or three sets of rumble strips will certainly get your attention.

    If you go to neighboring counties, you will hit rumble strips before entering a dangerous intersection.

  • 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.
