Letters

  • LETTER: Many means exist to cut $16 trillion debt

    I wish to respond to Mike Gramelspacher’s letter Aug. 20 concerning hearing that Obama is in love with Marxism. Mike would like for us to believe a story told by John Drew about Obama in 1980 when Obama was 16 or 17 years old. Drew claims he flew from New York to see his girlfriend in south Los Angeles, Orange County, Calif., in December 1980. Those of us who follow our national politics recognize Orange County as radical John Birch Society Republicans.

  • LETTER: ‘Cocky’ May outlines goals for school board

    Hello, My name is Rick May and I am a candidate in the upcoming election this November for a seat on the Tell City-Troy Township School Board. Many of you may know me by my nickname, “Cocky.”               

  • LETTER: Local Perry County residents show community spirit

    On behalf of the Rome Cemetery Association, we wish to thank William J. Coomer and his wife, Carolyn L. Coomer, for their very generous gift of a large parcel of land to expand the already full Lamb-Rowe local landmark cemetery.

    These rural, out-of-the-way cemeteries are often overlooked and almost forgotten. But for the families whose descendants go back centuries and wish to continue their heritage in Perry County, it is important they have the opportunity to do so.

  • LETTER: Tell City is a great hometown

    I’m a traveling surgical technologist and in the past five years I’ve worked in a lot of different places, but Tell City has been the best by far in my opinion.

    It is truly a little hometown where people are still kind to strangers and treat you like family.

    Just in case you don’t know what you have in Tell City let me tell you that the people at Perry County Memorial Hospital are some of the most compassionate caregivers that I have had the privilege to work with.

  • LETTER : Your vote for school board is important

    As you may have heard, I have decided to run for Tell City-Troy Township School Board. I’ve been asked why I would want to be a school-board member.

    My youngest of three children, all of whom attended Tell City Schools, will graduate from Tell City High School this year. The answer is simple: I care about our community.

    My family and I are lifelong residents of Tell City. My wife grew up in Troy and most of her family still resides there. My business, my friends and my future are all connected to Tell City and Troy Township.

  • LETTER: Kleeman explains run for school board

    I believe we have a good school system that with continued investment of adequate resources – labor and financial – effective stewardship, and visionary leadership can be even better. Based on that belief, I am a candidate for a seat on the Tell City-Troy Township School Board in the upcoming election Nov. 6. I am asking for your vote and support.

  • LETTER: State should share surplus with all Hoosiers

    This letter is being written to the residents of southern Indiana. My name is James Carter and I need your help to make the citizens of our counties aware of a problem that can be avoided.

    The state has a $2 billion surplus that will most likely only benefit a few counties in northern Indiana if certain powers get their way.

    Many of our counties’ infrastructures are wearing out fast, and will continue to unless we band together as a bloc and demand a proper share of the surplus that we helped create.

  • LETTER: Nation’s health-care crisis predates Obama

    I’d like to address a couple of points in Cheryl Freeman’s letter in The Perry County News of Sept. 3. The first is her talking about President Obama robbing Medicare of $716 billion.

    The figure in question is a case of getting rid of fraud, eliminating overcharges by hospitals and excess premiums charged by insurance companies under Medicare Advantage, not exactly stealing in the strictest sense.

  • LETTER: Obama the candidate’s quote of the decade

    This is an excerpt from a speech Sen. Obama made March 16, 2006. It is word for word as he said it. He was speaking of George Bush, but has now spent and borrowed five times more than George Bush.

  • LETTER: Woman appreciates support after accident

    I wanted to send a letter to the News because after I was in a very tragic accident, many groups worked very diligently during a time that was difficult for all concerned.

    I want to thank the Perry County Rescue Squad, Perry County Ambulance Service and the sheriff’s department and other local emergency and law-enforcement units and the public who were present and offered assistance after my Aug. 9 accident.
