Letters

  • Is Obama leading nation toward Marxism?

    In December 1980 there was a chance meeting in Portola Valley, Calif., between Barrack Obama and one John Drew.

    Drew, a graduate student at Cornell University, was visiting his girlfriend, a senior at Occidental College and a Marxist radical, as was Drew at the time. Barack Obama, a friend of Drew’s girlfriend, arrived together with another friend at the home of Drew’s girlfriend’s parents.

  • LETTER: Local surveyor generous with time, talent

    Surely every community has young professionals who are community minded and donate their time and professional talent to local nonprofit groups. Perry County is blessed with several of these.

    The purpose of this letter is to acknowledge the contribution of the Lynch Surveying and Engineering  Co. to the Shubael Little Pioneer Village. David (Lynch) has done work for us in the past. Since we operate on a shoestring budget, he has provided services that were essential but unattainable on our budget.

  • LETTER: Stuff the Bus helps prepare kids for school

    Thank you, thank you, thank you to Wal-Mart, all our dedicated volunteers and all the generous donors who helped create another successful Stuff the Bus school-supply drive July 20 and 21.    

    On behalf of the United Way of Perry County, I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the residents of our community who helped support our sixth annual “stuff the bus” school-supply drive for students in need.

  • LETTER: Government role no guarantee of success

    On Friday, July 13, in Roanoke, Va., President Obama took a shot at all of the thousands of America’s successful entrepreneurs. He said, “if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own.” He went on; “if you’ve got a business - you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

  • LETTER: Not every pet owner is irresponsible

    This is in response to a July 9 letter regarding dog feces in the city parks.

    I take my dogs to City Hall Park daily, I drive there and will continue to do so as long as they enjoy it.

    I am a responsible pet  owner and like many others I see there, I do pick up after my pets.

    After  reading this letter I went to the park and saw only two instances where there was feces left. I can only assume since it was so offensive to this lady and her family that they picked it up.

  • LETTER: Ordinance needed in fight on pet messes

    I was just reading in our newspaper a letter to the editor. I found this letter talked about a topic that I have thought about a number of times.

    Why do I or my grandchildren have to dodge the dog crap in every park, in my own yard or on the greenways?

    After all I don’t even have a pet. My neighbors take great care of their dogs. Not one of them come to my yard to do their business.

    But, alas, people come from other parts of town on their way to the dog park just to let their dog go in my yard.

  • LETTER: Tell City man plans book of poetry, prose

    I now have a contract with Author House, Bloomington, to publish my book of poetry and prose this year.

    The complete title is “The Way We Were; Poetry and Prose as Time Goes By, the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and Today.” History and poetry always relates to precedent in one way or another.

  • LETTER: Tell City Downtown Clean-up Day is Friday

    The City of Tell City is pleased to invite all area residents to volunteer in downtown Tell City for the first “Downtown Clean Up Day,” to be held from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Friday, July 27.

    Residents, along with merchants and city personnel, are asked to meet in City Hall Park and join together in this promotion of pride in our community.

  • LETTER: Auction benefits Living Bread Food Pantry

    I am writing this letter to thank the following businesses and individuals that contributed to the seventh annual Living Bread Food Pantry Auction that was held May 29. With their help we were able to raise close to $2,200 this year and close to $15,000 over the past seven years.

  • LETTER: Pray with full confidence

    If we are going to pray for rain, we must do it in faith without doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, being moved by the wind and blown here and there.

    For that man must not expect to receive anything from the Lord, since he is a double-minded man, unsettled in all his ways.
        -- James 1:6-8
