Letters

  • Super Commodore fan releases musical CD

    First, I would like to say hello to all the wonderful former students I taught at Perry Central Community School for almost a 25-year period. I hope you are all doing well in your chosen fields. Secondly, I want to inform all fine Perry Central folks that I produced my first music compact disc and will have them on sale at the Perry Central ballgame, weather permitting, Jan. 31.

  • Will Obama get credit for lower gas prices?

    You know, I remember a couple of years ago some readers wrote letters to this very paper saying it was all President Obama’s fault that gasoline might hit $4 a gallon back then and how Obama had hurt this country’s oil production.

    I wonder what they are saying now with gas under $2 a gallon? I guess since he was to blame back then, he gets the credit now for prices falling?

  • Central Bark Dog Park supporters thankful

    We would like to thank all of the individuals and organizations who gave their time and contributions to support the planting of the trees at Central Bark Dog Park. The dog park was greatly transformed this fall by your many efforts.

  • LETTER: Congress must fix ailing immigration system

    Nearly everyone agrees the U.S. immigration system, with its inefficiency, inconsistent enforcement and incoherent results, is broken. While no one supports the current system, the failure of Congress to reach an agreement on immigration reform has left us in law enforcement facing a growing multitude of problems. Frustration with this situation led to various states, including Indiana, passing their own immigration laws.

  • LETTER: Torture report filled with shortcomings

    I am writing about the editorial about the USA torturing our terror prisoners and several things were not included that should have been.

    This report was by Democrats and only Democrats;  Republicans were going to be part of the investigation but dropped out when the Democrats were only going to go by what they have heard.

    Another problem with the report is that no interviews were done of anyone involved with the prisoners.

  • Scouts collect 200-plus pounds of candy

    St. Paul Cub Scouts and Boy Scout Troop 192 would like to thank the community again for their support during the after-Halloween candy drive.

    A total of 17 boxes, 200-plus pounds of candy, were sent out to three different locations for some local service members.

    The boys spent $270.30 for postage to send them.

  • Daughters of Isabella thank raffle donors

  • 2014 Youth Day of Caring another success

    United Way of Perry County would like to take this opportunity to thank the youth, youth group leaders, and various businesses and agencies of the community for taking part in this year’s successful “Youth Day of Caring” Sunday, Nov. 2.

    Youth groups joined forces to paint, wash windows, rake, clean, weed, clean out landscaping, and clear trails at designated locations across the county.

    (Caring) The free labor provided by our volunteers saved our local nonprofits many maintenance dollars and numerous hours of valuable time.   

  • LETTER: Schnell enjoyed recent visit to Perry Central

    Dec. 5 felt like Super Commodore Day in wonderful Perry County. I feel like I’m on a roll at the age of 84.

    On that grand day I ate pizza with the Perry Central volleyball sectional champs and I later entertained the residents at Oakwood Health Campus in Tell City with a happy hour Christmas concert with carols.

    After the concert, I enjoyed supper at Marcy’s in Leopold with Perry Central Community School Corp. Superintendent Mary Roberson and my relatives, who served as my drivers.

  • LETTER: Hospital auxiliary thanks bazaar helpers

    We would like to thank everyone who supported our Perry County Memorial Hospital Auxiliary Bazaar held recently. So many helped by buying baked goods and craft items, making gift shop purchases or bidding on our silent-auction items.

    Many others bought tickets for the turkey and dressing dinners. A special thanks to all the auxiliary members who worked that day, prepared baked items or made something for the craft sale. It takes a lot of members, help from the hospital staff, the kitchen staff, and community members who attended to make this a successful event every year.
