  • LETTER: Special-needs campers thank United Way

    We at Anderson Woods have been a participating agency of United Way of Perry County for many years.

    Anderson Woods strives to provide a quality camping experience for special-needs people of all ages and backgrounds. Many of our campers are from Perry County and many others are drawn to Perry County for the experience.

  • LETTER: Be safe from real life Halloween predators

    There are approximately 41 registered sex offenders in Perry County and we want you to know where they reside so that you avoid those houses when trick-or-treating.

    We do the best we can in making sure sex offenders live where they tell us, so it is crucial that our citizens visit our Web site at www.indianasheriffs.org, to see who the registered sex offenders are and where they are living. Citizens are encouraged to check any addresses where they or their family spend time. The mapping and address feature found on the Web site pinpoints exactly where offenders live.

  • LETTER: An unforgotten thank you

    On behalf of the Kroessman Krusaders Alzheimer Memory Walk team, I want to thank the following businesses and people for the great success of our bowling tournament held at the Tell City Bowling Center Sept. 22.

  • LETTER: Thanks for cleaning up Fennhaven eyesore

    I would like to take this time to commend Mayor Barbara Ewing, Zoning Commissioner Bob Young and Councilman Chris Cail for all their hard work in getting the property cleared along High Street and Riverview Drive in the Fennhaven community of Tell City.

    I have frequently visited Tell City for the last 18 years and have noticed all the vacant, dilapidated homes in the Fennhaven area.

  • LETTER: Thanks for the invitation, Cannelton

    I’d like to thank the people of Cannelton for making the New Albanian Brewing Co. feel so much at home during our afternoon at the Heritage Festival Oct.13.

    We had been invited to join a few area wineries this year to offer samples of our beer, and to sell a few pints, too. We met lots of fun people, made some friends and enjoyed the day tremendously.

    The organizers had their act together and the venue for the sampling was comfortable and well-planned.

  • LETTER: Send a message to state Supreme Court

    Two Indiana Supreme Court justices and four Court of Appeals judges are up for retention on Election Day in November. Voters will decide “yes” or “no” on whether to retain each justice or judge. Justices are elected to a term that could potentially last for 10 years. Once the justice is elected it is virtually impossible to remove them.

  • LETTER: Tell City leaders doing fine beautification job

    I want to take this time to let the city leaders of Tell City know what a fine job they are doing to beautify the Fennhaven community.

    I was one of the first people to build a home in Fennhaven back in 1954 when Mr. Roy Fenn was selling lots and trying to create a subdivision overlooking the Ohio River.

    After my first wife died, I eventually remarried and moved to a different area, but I would always take drives back to Fennhaven to see how things were progressing.

  • LETTER: Cannelton’s anniversary parade a success

    We would like to thank everyone who participated and came to see our 175th celebration parade Oct. 7. The following are the winners of the parade contest.

    Community division – first place, Margaret and Larry Schank and Patty Seibert in the Sisters of the Swish 1962 remake; second place, Cannelton Elementary School children float; third place, Girl Scout troop float.

  • LETTER: Many means exist to cut $16 trillion debt

    I wish to respond to Mike Gramelspacher’s letter Aug. 20 concerning hearing that Obama is in love with Marxism. Mike would like for us to believe a story told by John Drew about Obama in 1980 when Obama was 16 or 17 years old. Drew claims he flew from New York to see his girlfriend in south Los Angeles, Orange County, Calif., in December 1980. Those of us who follow our national politics recognize Orange County as radical John Birch Society Republicans.
