  • LETTER:Third-graders learn about advertising

    Each year, third-graders in my classroom have ended our economics unit by designing advertisements for local businesses. This not only teaches the students about the significance of advertising, but also teaches them about the importance of providing crucial information, and editing their work and then editing it some more. 

  • LETTER:Dogwood Fest’s success in Rome due to many hands

  • LETTER: Why does new jail have to be so large?

    I just wanted to ask the people of Perry County if they wanted a jail, and if so did they want one so much larger than the one that has served us so well for so long?

    Since the county’s population has not increased in 100 years, do they feel it is necessary to have one so large?

  • LETTER: Don’t let summer’s swelter stress your pet

    It’s summertime. It’s going to be very hot. Let’s take care of our furry loved ones. Let’s take care of our dogs and cats.

    Here are a few tips to keep care of our pets.

    • Never leave an animal in a car. Temperatures can reach 150 degrees or hotter even if you have your windows cracked.

    • Always make sure that our outdoor pets have plenty of cool water and fresh food.

  • LETTER: Tootsie Roll drive raised more than $4,800

    Tell City Knights of Columbus Council 1172 would like to thank the entire community for its support of our annual Tootsie Roll Drive.

    The many volunteers from Council 1172 were successful in reaching our monetary goal by collecting more than $4,800.

    These donations will be contributed equally to the programs for mentally challenged citizens of Perry County.

  • LETTER: Government needs to butt out of marriage

    The debate about whether government should sanction or prevent gay marriage is missing the essential point that government has no call to be involved at all with the matter of marriage.

    Marriage is a personal decision by two (or more?) people to enter into a certain kind of relationship.

    It is not the government’s prerogative or bailiwick or duty or necessity to inject itself into the matter of marriage. The government should butt out of the marriage business.

  • LETTER: Marathon feature well written

    I want to thank you for your coverage and great story on Kim Strobel’s participation in the Boston Marathon.

    Your writer, Trista Lutgring, did an excellent job describing the marathon, Boston’s unusual weather conditions for this year’s race and Kim’s preparation for the event.

    The story was thorough and interesting. It was an informative sports story as well as a solid human-interest story.
