Letters

  • LETTER: Right-to-work is about being fair to workers

    Our state is considering becoming a right-to-work state, making it the first one since Oklahoma in 2001 to end coerced unionism.

    There are currently 22 right-to-work states. Most of the remaining states require workers at a place of employment to join a union and pay their dues if 51 percent of the workers at that place of employment vote to have a union. The other possible 49 percent of workers who don’t want a union must still pay hefty union dues each month to bosses who spend much of that money supporting leftist political agendas like Barack Obama’s.

  • LETTER: Every group should adopt Robert’s Rules

    In response to the “Your View” editorial published Dec. 26, I agree that Roberts Rules of Order should be put in place.

    (County Councilman Ron) Crawford was right in asking to follow Roberts Rules of Order. In all the committees and boards I have served on Roberts Rules of Order was in place or assumed the organization followed them. We had them in the Jaycees, we have in the Knights of Columbus, just to mention a couple.

  • LETTER: HTC committees hard at work as year begins

    Perry County is participating in the Indiana Hometown Competitiveness Program based on a successful application submitted by the Perry County Chamber of Commerce. The program empowers hometowns to enhance their prosperity and quality of life. IHTC is operated out of the Office of Community and Rural Affairs and is based on a similar program that began in Nebraska to help their communities that had been shrinking for more than 100 years.

  • LETTER: Program provides chance to work together

    I am Nancy Bosler, a grandparent of three students at William Tell Elementary School. Last year through the Safe Schools-Healthy Students grant, WTE offered a program on Thursday afternoons called Strengthening Families.

  • LETTER: Suggestions for making Congress better

    This is an open letter to Congress, both the House and Senate, and members of both parties and independents.

    First, consider the national budget. There is no money for grants, subsidies, loans or bailouts. Stop looking for budget cuts. Look instead at the projected revenue, prioritize and decide what can be kept.

    Let the truth be known about Social Security. It was never supposed to be part of the national budget. Social Security did not go broke. Congress made it part of the budget to get access to (steal) the funds that were supposed to be held in trust.

  • LETTER: TC’s Neighborhood Watch follows the rules

    I am writing in response to an editorial in The Perry County News Nov. 28. First of all, as founder of Tell City Neighborhood Watch, I would like to thank the community and city officials for the support we have received in response of launching the Neighborhood Watch program.

  • LETTERS: Students share their thoughts on the freedom of speech

    Editor’s Note: Tell City Junior-Senior High School students in Troy Noble’s class submitted letters to the editor about the freedom of speech.

  • LETTER: $200 reward offered in St. Marks damage

    There is an individual in the St. Marks area who has total disregard for the property of others.

    He is running his four-wheel-drive truck through yards and fields doing considerable damage.

    If you have any information concerning this individual, please contact the Perry County Sheriff's Department. I am offering a $200 reward leading to the arrest and conviction of this individual.

  • LETTER: United Way Day of Caring touched many

    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 "Day of Caring" Nov. 6.

    Youth groups joined forces to paint, stain, exercise animals, wash windows, clean, weed and clear trails at designated locations across the county. The free labor provided by our volunteers saved our local nonprofits many maintenance dollars and numerous hours of valuable time.

  • LETTER: Community foundations have huge impact

    During the week of Nov. 12-18, the Perry County Community Foundation will join more than 700 community foundations across America for Community Foundation Week. For more than 20 years, the effort has raised awareness about the increasingly important role of these philanthropic organizations in fostering local collaboration and innovation to address persistent civic and economic challenges.

    During the week, Perry County Community Foundation encourages everyone to celebrate National Philanthropy day, Nov. 15, by giving thanks and paying it forward.
