Letters

  • LETTER: Electric department requires customers to give out Social Security numbers

  • LETTER: Humane Society collecting used doghouses

    The Humane Society of Perry County is asking for the community’s help to donate used doghouses to those in need.

    Each December, the society tries to provide doghouses, but the need is always greater than the supply. We have been fortunate to have a woodcrafter donate time and skill for this endeavor so we can make new houses if possible.

    To donate used doghouses, please contact me at 836-4842. You can also make monetary donations by mailing them to P.O. Box 21, Tell City, IN 47586.

  • LETTER: Cemetery thieves a disgrace

    I am in agreement with a recent letter I saw in The Perry County News dated Oct. 29, 2012.

    I went to visit my mother’s gravesite at St. Mary’s Cemetery and was shocked to see that someone stole the beautiful saddle with fall flowers and flowers in vase that my sister, my stepfather and I had placed there the week before.

    You are not only robbing from the deceased, but also robbing from family and friends of the peace and joy they receive by visiting and placing items of love.

  • LETTER: Support helps hospital auxiliary’s holiday bazaar succeed

    We want to thank everyone who supported our recently held Perry County Memorial Hospital Auxiliary Holiday Bazaar by buying baked goods and craft items, making gift-shop purchases or bidding on our silent-auction items, or by just enjoying our turkey-and-dressing luncheon. Also, a special thanks to all the auxiliary members who worked that day, prepared baked items or made something for our craft sale. It takes a lot of members, help from the hospital and the kitchen staff, and the community members who attended to make this a successful event every year.

  • LETTER: Thanks for help with the book-signing event

    In regard to my recent book signing at the Tell City Branch of the Perry County Public Library, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the Perry County News for the wonderful press releases that were printed in two editions of the newspaper announcing the event.

  • LETTER: Cannelton’s old-time fashion show a hit

    We congratulate the winners of the Old Time Fashion Show held Oct. 13 at the Covered Wagon during the Cannelton Heritage Fest.

    They are as follows: Jackson Joyal, 3-year-old son of Jermie and Lena Joyal of Cannelton, in the boys’ division; Kylie Anastasiades, 5-year-old daughter of Matt and Margaret Anastasiades of Cannelton, in the girls’ division; Sue Berry of Henderson, Ky., and her faithful friend, Jackson, in the women’s division, and Ken Gilkey of Newburgh in the men’s division.

  • Thank a veteran for the freedoms we enjoy

    After serving their country with honor, courage and skill, too many veterans are struggling to find jobs.

  • LETTER: Candidate forum at K of C a success

    The Perry County Chamber of Commerce and The Perry County News would like to thank the community for its great support of our Oct. 18 candidates forum.

    The event was a great success and we want to thank all of the candidates who took part as well as the public for attending.

    Thanks also to Tell City Knights of Columbus for allowing us use of their facility for the event. It’s another sign of the council’s long record of service to our community.

  • LETTER: Scouting helped by community support

    If a parent ever experienced their son as a member of the Cub Scouts or Boy Scouts, they had to observe a transformation as the years progressed.

    They would start as a first-grader, eager to have fun, and all the while, the den leader would be teaching them all the qualities in the Scout Oath and Law.

  • LETTER: Catholic Charities, United Way reaches out to others

    Catholic Charities continues to help the poor and vulnerable in our area by creating hope and providing help for those in need.
