Letters

  • Letters policy for Nov. 3 issue

    To be fair to all candidates, no letters related to the Nov. 4 election, including letters from candidates, or letters endorsing any candidate, will be published in the Monday, Nov. 3 issue.

    Letters intended for the Thursday, Oct. 30, issue must be received by 5 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 28.

  • LETTER: Voters need to double check their sources of information, and their votes

    First, I want to agree with Michael Kleeman (in an Oct. 23 letter) about people needing to discuss issues intelligently. He has some facts wrong and I would recommend that he verify his information through different sources. First, the two wars were voted on by both Democrats and Republicans; Democrats backtracked on the Iraqi war after it became unpopular.

    Many people want to blame the Republicans, but Bush, like him or not, went to Congress to get approval for the wars.

  • LETTER: Fellow attorney supports Hoch candidacy
  • LETTER: Community joins together to aid festival

    The Cannelton Foundation thanks the following businesses and individuals for making the 2014 Heritage Festival a success:

  • Political arguing replacing baseball as nation’s pastime

     

    For the longest time I’ve been searching for motivation to express an opinion I hold dearly. A recent article appeared that truly makes me disappointed in our country. As we sit around and throw out harsh accusations towards candidates, it slowly reveals the voting nature of this nation.

  • Acchiardo comments made at forum were offensive

     

    Jason Hoch is currently running for prosecutor against Rod Acchiardo. Jason is employed by Huber, Goffinet & Hagedorn law office and has been for several years.

    If you attended the recent candidate forum or read the Monday edition of the News, you undoubtedly saw that Mr. Acchiardo took it upon himself to state that Jason was running for prosecutor because he “works for Chris Goffinet, who is a cheapskate who apparently doesn’t pay him nearly enough money.”

  • Thank you, Doris Turner

     

    On behalf of the many veterans in our area and their families, we would like to recognize someone that has given 38 years of her life serving the members of Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2939 and American Legion Post 213 of Tell City.

    She deserves high praise for the way she managed both organizations, 17 years with the American Legion and 21 years with the VFW.

    We appreciate the endless hours of excellent service, her dedication to veterans and always being there, her valuable expertise and remarkable selflessness.

  • Deer, not cats, the bigger problem in TC

     

    I have no way of judging how big a problem feral cats are for this community, but I feel certain a poll of citizens, especially on the south and east side of town, would find that the deer population causes far more problem to flowers, shrubs, gardens and trees than any cat invasion.
