  • LETTER: Snyder: Eventful first year as mayor filled with milestone events for Cannelton

    This letter is sent to everyone who has given and helped with my first year as mayor of the City of Cannelton. It has been an event-filled year.

  • LETTER: Community provides nutrition for kids

    United Way of Perry County has awarded a generous grant for the 2012-2013 school year to help support the Weekend Food Backpack Program in our county. This program supplies food over the weekend for children who come from homes where food is not always available to them.

  • LETTER: Legion auxiliary thankful for picnic support

    The American Legion Auxiliary would like to thank several businesses in Tell City for donating free coupons for the children’s summer picnic at the post home.

    The children loved the coupons for prizes. We go every year and ask them and they never turn us down and they give from the heart with a smile on their faces.

  • LETTER: County court systems should work together

    I filed a small claims in Perry County court against a Boonville business. The Boonville business wanted it transferred so Perry County allowed it. The business was supposed to pay the transfer fee but never did so I refiled in Perry County.

    The same judge allowed the same transfer back to Boonville and the same judge has now waived the transfer filing fee.

    I paid the transfer fee in Perry County and now he won’t pay in Boonville so to get my case heard I have to pay a filing fee in Boonville.

  • LETTER: Reminder to retailers: It’s ‘Christmas’ we’re celebrating

    As you do your Christmas shopping this year, I have a challenge for you. Think about why you are celebrating Christmas.

    If it’s to celebrate the birth of our savior, Jesus Christ, then I invite you to consider how the retailers you buy your Christmas gifts from feel about Christ and his followers.

    Many retailers have banned the word Christmas from their premises, and even instruct their employees to not say the words “Merry Christmas” to customers.

  • LETTER: Widow’s Barrel relies on community’s support

    In November of 2002, we opened the Widow’s Barrel Food Pantry. It was very difficult to raise money for food, because we had such a great need. But thanks to the United Way of Perry County, we have been able to meet that need for the past several years.
