  • LETTER: Foundation helps adult learners succeed

    As many in the community might be aware, the Perry County Community Foundation recently awarded a grant to adult education in Region 11 and our partner, Cannelton City Schools, to provide transportation services for the adult education class in Perry County.

    The free class, held at Ivy Tech Community College in Tell City, is fairly new, and we quickly realized that one of the most significant barriers for students in the community wanting to take advantage of the class was transportation.

  • LETTER: Obama no liar for U.S. oil reserves comments

    In his letter of April 30 (“Letter writer overlooks Obama facts, failures”) Jim Adkins seemed to have a lot to say about the issue of oil production, along with quite a bit about me. In the letter, Mr. Adkins calls me a liberal but he has never met me, talked to me on the phone or communicated with me in anyway. Furthermore, in looking at my past letters to this paper I don’t see anywhere that I gave an impression of being a liberal.

  • LETTER: Shouldn’t housing grant be used for housing?

    The (proposed) visitor center on Seventh Street is well and good, but why buy more land when you have all that chair-company property north of the doctors’ offices. It is just like when the city had to buy property for the police station, when the same property was there then.

    If the money you are wanting to use the for visitor center was supposed to be used for housing, then use it for housing. I’m getting tired of my money being spent needlessly.

  • LETTER: Hauser dedicated to Anderson Township VFD

    The directors of the Anderson Township Volunteer Fire Department wish to recognize the life of Lloyd Hauser, who recently passed away.

    On Feb. 15 our members signed a proclamation that recognized his hard work and dedication.

  • LETTER: What’s wrong with shepherd’s hooks?

    To St. Mary’s Cemetery Committee: I would like to know why you don’t want shepherd staffs mounted in the bases of monuments?

    They wouldn’t interfere with mowing, unless you mow upon the bases of the monuments.

    I know you don’t clean the monuments’ bases off because my parents’ is covered in grass on the base.

  • LETTER: Letter writer overlooks Obama facts, failures

    In response to Brian Gray’s (“How much will tapping reserves cost U.S.?”) letter of last week, I noted that he has used the old liberal trick of immediately going off-point when a question arises for which he has no answer. Like many libs, Gray dances around the issues like he has just been sprinkled with pixie dust.

    The entire point of the first 12 paragraphs of my letter is that Obama is not telling the truth about the nation’s oil reserves. The president states that we have only 2 percent of the world’s proven oil reserves.

  • LETTER: Anglers help county

    The Renaissance Leadership Class at Tell City Junior-Senior High School would like to thank the following people for the success of this year’s lip-sync competition:

  • LETTER: Earth Day is every day for Hoosier farmers

    It has been estimated that one billion people around the globe, in some way, observed Earth Day Sunday (yesterday). This was the 42nd annual celebration of a day set aside specifically to reinforce the importance of environmental vigilance, veneration and responsibility.

    It may go largely unnoticed but there is a portion of our population that observes Earth Day 365 days a year.

    Chances are very good that you know at least one of them.
