  • Cannelton’s Dragging Main was a blast

    The city of Cannelton would like to thank Ralph and Linda Terry, family and friends for their time and contribution for the first Red Bud Tour Dragging Main Event held this past April.

    Thanks again.

  • ‘Run for Mom’ drew more than 250 people

    We want to thank everyone who helped make the “Run for Your Mother 5K Fun Run/Walk”  on Mother’s Day 2016 such a huge success.

  • Head Start: thanks for the support

    Lincoln Hills Development Corp. South Perry Head Start Parents Ground would like to thank the community for supporting South Perry Head Start children through the discount card fundraiser.

    A special thank you to the participating business: Julie’s Tell Street Café, Los Amigos Mexican Restaurant, Skinsations Esthetician Salon & Boutique, Chicago’s Pizza, Carriage Inn, Vanessa’s Unique Boutique, Bill and Dave’s Smokin Pit, Domestic Goddess Boutique, Flowers by Lesa LLC and Fiesta Grande for their willingness to assist us in this endeavor.

  • Second EMS crew needed

    I live in Clark Township and I support placing a second full-time ambulance at the north station. This should be the top priority of the county officials, especially, since they have passed the Public Safety Tax.

    It is common sense that a second full time crew should be placed at the county garage. The building is completely ready for use. This would provide better coverage for the entire county.

    This is not a Democrat or Republican issue. It is a safety issue.

  • Businesses, volunteers helped Dogwood efforts

    We had a glorious day at Rome during the Dogwood Festival.  The day was beautiful and so was the crowd. We saw so many familiar faces as well as many new ones.

    Thank you so much to the people who came to eat and visit and waited patiently in a long line. 

  • Thank You for Empty Bowls success

    Empty Bowls Project Wants to Thank their Volunteers. The event, which took place on April 9, was a huge success.  

    Each person attending the event was asked to donate either $5 for a soup dinner or $10 for a soup dinner and a ceramic bowl.  Community members donated over $2300 during the event.  Proceeds will go to the Weekend Backpack Program of Perry County.

    The success of the event was due in large part to the generous community members who donated food, supplies, their time, or their artistic talent.  

  • Trump’s political value often overlooked

    This letter is my response to a letter to the editor, published in your Monday April 25 paper written by Betty Voornies, President Indiana AFL-CIO Labor Unions, titled, “Why Trump is bad for workers in America.”

    Yes, Trump, as well as I and millions of American citizens are very much concerned that our American companies are exiting the USA to carry our American jobs with them. Your article states that two Indiana companies, Carrier Air Conditioner and United Technologies are carrying 2100 jobs to Mexico, as well as hope for these soon to be jobless Americans.

  • Second full-time ambulance crew needed

    I am writing to show my support for a second full time ambulance to be placed at the north station. When the construction of this building was in the planning stage, the people in the vicinity were told that an ambulance would be housed there as an incentive to give their approval of the project.

    Now that the Public Safety Tax has been levied on the wage earners of Perry County, we need to see movement on getting this ambulance. It would benefit the entire county, not just the northern part.

  • K of C Tootsie Roll Drive a success

    The Tell City Knights of Columbus, Council 1172, would like to thank the entire community for the support of our annual Tootsie Roll dive held April 8-9. The many volunteers from the County 1172 are proud to announce we were successful in collecting donations of approximately $4,500. These donations will be contributed equally to the schools and programs for the mentally challenged citizens of Perry County.
