  • LETTER: Retired educator proud of basketball spirit

    The younger folks helped the older folks recently. I, being slightly handicapped and one of the older folks, was provided transportation to the local basketball sectional and regional ball games by younger folks.

    I even had a call from some fine folks who graduated from Perry Central High School and they asked me if I needed a ride to the sectional.
    It was great to see and talk to many fine Perry Central folks at the sectional and regional ball games.

  • LETTER: Flamion a dedicated Forest Service volunteer

    Bill Flamion was recently honored with a regional volunteer award by the Hoosier National Forest. Bill took the initiative to assist the Tell City Ranger District maintain the Saddle Lake Campground. He liked to camp there and knew that the district lost the prison crew that used to do all summer maintenance.

    The district did not have enough personnel to keep up with all the maintenance throughout the year including mowing, trimming, cleaning out grills and campsites and cleaning the restrooms.

  • LETTER: Community’s support made our lives better

    I do not really know of everyone who made our life so great. Maybe I should say thanks to our local Perry County News. It made no matter what we wanted in the newspaper, they put it in there.

  • LETTER: Temporary foundry workers earn less pay

    I was reading the March 4 issue of the Perry County News and saw the comment in the story that when Waupaca first came to town, the first 500 employees were easy to find. Then they claimed that they struggled to find people to fill jobs.

    I say bull crap! I think there are plenty of people who can do the job and are perfectly willing but Waupaca only wants to hire through temporary services. How can people not be good enough to work a full-time job with full benefits and full pay but are good enough to work the same job under temporary conditions for less pay?
