  • 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.

  • LETTER: The gun-control hypocrisy of fat cats

    Ok, Chris Christie, I’ll see your reprehensible and raise you two contemptible.

    What is this all about? The National Rifle Association ran a video advertisement pointing out the hypocrisy of President Obama and many politicians and media celebrities sending their children to schools protected by armed guards, while at the same time criticizing and ridiculing the NRA for recommending that all schools have armed guards.

  • LETTER: Community continues its long support of Tell City Kiwanis’ food-basket program

    The Tell City Kiwanis Club would like to thank the many donors to the Kiwanis Christmas Basket Program this year. Your donations, totaling $15,736, helped make Christmas brighter for hundreds of families.

    Tell City Kiwanians provided 319 food baskets to families in Tell City, Cannelton, Troy and some rural areas while our partners at Perry Central Outreach provided 52 baskets at Perry Central with help from Tell City Kiwanis.

    Many thanks to following Kiwanians and volunteers who helped distribute the baskets:

  • LETTER: Thanks for supporting the Humane Society

    The Humane Society of Perry County would like to thank all the people, businesses and veterinarians who make it possible to continue helping responsible animal owners in our county. If it were not for your generous donations, we could not continue with our projects of helping to spay and neuter Perry County animals. Also the ability to help provide dog houses or the straw giveaway in the fall would not be possible.

  • LETTER: Law-enforcement officers are our hometown heroes

    Our law-enforcement officers are the first line of defense against crime. They conduct themselves in a manner that supports, maintains and defends the Constitution of the state of Indiana and the United States. While performing their duties, they risk their own lives to save the lives of others.

    The law-enforcement officer faces difficult challenges every day.

  • LETTER: Thank you to everyone for making Tell City’s New Year’s Eve celebration a hit

    On behalf of the Perry County Quality of Life Committee, we would like to extend our thanks to so many partners who assisted us in the first-ever Silversternacht celebration on New Year’s Eve. The event was a huge success due to the wonderful turnout and the immense amount of participation that local businesses, organizations and our local school corporations exercised to ensure the night was a memorable one.

  • LETTER: Tell City is truly a welcoming community

    To the community of Tell City, as we prepare to return home to Utah, we want to thank you all for being so welcoming and friendly to us this past year.

    It’s been delightful to go into the hospital, City Hall, schools, businesses, restaurants, etc., or walk down the street and have people wave, smile or talk to us.

    We’ve really enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

  • LETTER: Let’s keep guns out of the hands of criminals

    I do not own an assault weapon, nor do I have any desire to own one. In fact there’s no reason for me to have one, no reason for you to have one either. But to ban them ?

    What’s next? Pistols, shotguns, bows and arrows? You say that will never happen. Let’s hope not. But we all know things change. Politicians change from one week to the next.

    Whatever’s hot today. That’s what they’ll vote for, what they think will get them future votes.

  • LETTER: TCHS Class of 1962 generous to others

    The Council on Agencies in Tell City would like to thank the Tell City High School Class of 1962 for their recent financial donation.

    These funds, collected in lieu of a gift exchange during the group’s Christmas party, will be especially beneficial as the council struggles to keep up with the increasing number of families who find it difficult to purchase the food they need.

    Local donations and funds provided by the United Way enable our county’s food pantries to operate successfully.

  • LETTER: Please get your firearms facts straight

    In reference to your recent editorial, it is extremely difficult to have a reasoned discussion concerning gun control when proponents use misleading, intentionally demonized definitions.

    You show a total lack of understanding concerning “assault weapons” since that term does not exist in military lexicon because, oddly enough, they consider all weapons systems to be “assault weapons.”
