Letters

  • City should help resident cut off from home

    I am writing to comment on the (June 16) letter to the editor from my mother, Mary Hearst. She is very upset over all this and that is not good for a lady of 83 years. It worries me.

    It is true I have been talking to the street commissioner for some time about this culvert and the problem we were having with it. At first he had his workers put some blacktop on it but that really didn't do much.  But I guess it did appease us for a while.

  • VFW members grateful for support of Buddy Poppy sales

    Members of Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2939 and its ladies and mens auxiliaries wish to thank the Perry County community for supporting the 2014 Buddy Poppy program.

    The money received from this remains in our community to benefit disabled and in-need veterans and widows of deceased veterans in Perry County.

    Also, I'd like to thank the Perry County News for advertising and Nobles IGA, Wal-Mart and Cash Savers Foods for allowing us to distribute our buddy poppies in front of their stores.

    KERRY JAMES
    Commander

  • Colors of Hope 5K run-walk a smashing hit

    The second annual Colors of Hope 5K was held Saturday June 7. Perfect weather and a large crowd of runners and walkers helped create a very successful family-fun event hosted by New Directions Health & Fitness Club.

    We’d like to thank Teri James and Relay For Life for once again partnering with us. Along with her support and the support of others, we were able to make a sizeable donation to the American Cancer Society once again this year.

  • Tell City Band boosters say thank you

    The Tell City Band Boosters would like to thank everyone who helped make our auction a success.

    A special thank you goes to Scott Dixon of Dixon & Dixon Auctioneers, Kelly Peter, Angie Moseby and everyone who came out to support our auction.

  • LETTER: It’s a great day to be a Tell City Marksman

    Both as citizens of the community and members of Tell City Junior-Senior High School, we would like to express our gratitude to the many, many people who have helped revitalize the softball fields in our town.

    In attending some recent softball games, we can feel the pride that our students have in the facility, and the community is very grateful for the work you have given.

    We know there are too many people to list who have volunteered their time and donated their resources to make this happen.

  • LETTER: Council vote created no room for neutrality

    Randy Cole (May 22 story) was correct in his statement that “anyone who declines to sign the petition is on Tell City’s side.” The only way to stop annexation is through remonstrance signatures.

  • LETTER: There is no coercion in obtaining signatures

    This letter is in response to the May 26 News editorial, “Base annexation debate on the facts, not rumors.”

    I completely agree that the Perry County News has not taken sides, has not taken a stand, and has been neutral on the whole thing. And I applaud you for that.

    About your concerns of what Randy Cole said, maybe I can help clear it up. When we had the first petition drive in February, I personally went door to door to get people’s opinions, and signatures.

  • LETTER: Runners, walkers made their moms proud

    We want to thank everyone who helped make the Run for Your Mother 5K Fun Run-Walk on Mother’s Day such a huge success. We had 211 people registered.

    From individuals to entire families, people of all ages were running and walking in honor of their moms. It was a wonderful day.

  • Rome Community Center, Methodist Church say thanks for helping Dogwood succeed

    The Rome Community Center and the Rome Methodist Church want to thank so many people for the wonderful day we had here during the Dogwood Festival in April.  The weather was beautiful and that allowed everyone to enjoy the day.

  • Foundation congratulates 2014 graduates

    The Perry County Community Foundation wishes to congratulate all graduating seniors and their families. We share in their excitement as they begin a new journey in their lives.

    Thanks to the generosity of community members, we were pleased this year that we were able to award 38 scholarships in the amount of $33,850 to Perry County students. Generous donors who care about the community created scholarship funds that assist students in their educational endeavors.
