  • LETTER: Renaissance yard sale helped by many

    The Renaissance Leadership class of Tell City Junior-Senior High School would like to thank the following for helping us with our Renaissance yard sale:

    Dan Hall, Dixon & Dixon Auctioneers, Alvey Cleaners, Indiana Realty & Auction, community members who donated sale items, Tri Kappa, Red Apple Inn, custodial staff of Tell City Junior-Senior High School, student steering committee, student council and all of those who bought sale items

    The money raised from this event will go toward encouraging our students and rewarding their academic success.

  • LETTER: School lip-sync contest was a great time

    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.

  • LETTER: How much will tapping reserves cost U.S.?

    I’d like to address some issues pertaining to Jim Adkins’ letter (“Obama’s energy whoppers point to failures”) published  April 16.

    Mr. Adkins brings up what appears to be huge reserves of oil in the U.S. However, has he bothered to check just what tapping all those reserves would cost?

  • LETTER: Obama’s energy whoppers point to failures

    President Obama has recently claimed that the U.S. has only 2 percent of the world’s petroleum reserves but uses 20 percent of the world’s oil. Therefore, he postulates that drilling for oil is a no-win proposition for us to rid ourselves of energy dependence. Despite his insistence that we don’t have enough energy reserves to maintain independence, nothing could be further from the truth.

  • LETTER: Cannelton to offer bus service outside city

    Students who reside in the Tell City-Troy Township School Corp. and the Perry Central School Corp. can attend school in Cannelton without paying transfer tuition. Students may also take driver education at Cannelton High School at no cost. Cannelton is the only high school in Perry County that offers driver education to its students.

    Beginning next school year, (2012-2013), the Cannelton City Schools Corp. will provide bus transportation at pickup points for students living in Tell City, Troy and the Rocky Point-Tobinsport areas.

  • LETTER: Donnelly: Indiana needs more from nation’s leaders; give tax breaks to job creators

    I’m running for the U.S. Senate to be a voice for the hardworking families of Indiana. Our goal is every Hoosier who wants a job has a job. There are five areas I want to discuss – and a belief we should live within our means – to put us on the right path.

    First, we need to stand up for the good jobs we have by cracking down on the Chinese government’s unfair practices, leading to a loss of Hoosier jobs.

  • LETTER: Nearly $5 million returned to counties in District 74; Ellspermann supports review

    Anyone can make one mistake, but two? In December, Department of Revenue found a programming error which “discovered” more than $300 million of tax revenue that had been electronically remitted by businesses, but not transferred into the general fund.

    This did allow the General Assembly to fund full-day kindergarten, a good outcome.

  • LETTER: Letter writer owes an apology to Crawford

    Although I appreciate Mrs. Carter’s passion for animal rights, I do believe she is way out of line calling councilman Ron Crawford an arrogant hypocrite.

    She does not know the same man I have known for 60 years. Arrogant? Mr. Crawford is the most humble person I have ever known. Hypocrite? No way, he has always been straight ahead with his views and his life in general.

    Also, as for as representing his constituents, well he is representing this constituent and many others with whom I have discussed this issue.

  • LETTER: Economy needs less government meddling

    I am replying to an editorial published in December titled “Letting people raise their own taxes could be a good move.”

    Now my first comments would be directed toward the part that says, “Most politicians are still unwilling to raise taxes on even the most wealthiest citizens.”
