  • 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.

  • LETTER: Be safe from real life Halloween predators

    There are approximately 41 registered sex offenders in Perry County and we want you to know where they reside so that you avoid those houses when trick-or-treating.

    We do the best we can in making sure sex offenders live where they tell us, so it is crucial that our citizens visit our Web site at www.indianasheriffs.org, to see who the registered sex offenders are and where they are living. Citizens are encouraged to check any addresses where they or their family spend time. The mapping and address feature found on the Web site pinpoints exactly where offenders live.

    I would like to take this time to commend Mayor Barbara Ewing, Zoning Commissioner Bob Young and Councilman Chris Cail for all their hard work in getting the property cleared along High Street and Riverview Drive in the Fennhaven community of Tell City.

    I have frequently visited Tell City for the last 18 years and have noticed all the vacant, dilapidated homes in the Fennhaven area.

  • LETTER: Thanks for the invitation, Cannelton

    I’d like to thank the people of Cannelton for making the New Albanian Brewing Co. feel so much at home during our afternoon at the Heritage Festival Oct.13.

    We had been invited to join a few area wineries this year to offer samples of our beer, and to sell a few pints, too. We met lots of fun people, made some friends and enjoyed the day tremendously.

    The organizers had their act together and the venue for the sampling was comfortable and well-planned.

  • LETTER: Send a message to state Supreme Court

    Two Indiana Supreme Court justices and four Court of Appeals judges are up for retention on Election Day in November. Voters will decide “yes” or “no” on whether to retain each justice or judge. Justices are elected to a term that could potentially last for 10 years. Once the justice is elected it is virtually impossible to remove them.
