Letters

  • LETTER: County needs animal-control officer now

    I am writing this letter out of frustration. My name is Jim Carter and I am president of the Humane Society of Perry County. For the past five years, along with my fellow officers and members, I have tried to make things better for our four-legged friends by being proactive in animal rights.

  • LETTER: Proposed animal control ordinance flawed

    I am writing in regard to the proposed Animal Welfare and Control Ordinance No. 0C-05-4. I read all 39 pages of it four times. It took that many times for me to fully understand what all is hidden in the lengthy legal jargon.

  • LETTER: Company wrong about gasification impact

    No significant impact on the environment? That is what Indiana Gasification wants us to believe about the amount of pollution that will be produced by the proposed synthetic gas project.

    They compare the amounts of pollution to coal-fired electric plants in the area. Of course they are going to have less pollution than any of the AEP, Vectren or Duke Energy power plants.

    We understand that these power plants burn the coal that is used and that the syngas plant will use the coal in a chemical process. But there will be pollution released into the atmosphere.

  • LETTER: What does debt-ceiling debate mean for you?

    If you’re like most Americans, the term “debt ceiling” probably didn’t mean that much to you until recently. Now, of course, the debt ceiling debate is front-page news day after day. As a citizen, you’re no doubt hoping the situation is resolved in the best interests of the country.

    But as an investor, you may be especially concerned about what might happen to your holdings, and your overall investment strategy, if the debt ceiling is not increased by the Aug. 2 deadline.

  • LETTER: A look at changes to Indiana’s District 74

  • LETTER: Make plans now to attend ‘The King and I’

    The cast and crew of the Schweizer Fest musical, “The King and I,” are working hard polishing and tweaking each detail. Presentation of the Old National Bank-sponsored production will be Aug. 4-7.

  • LETTER: County faces immunization challenges

    The state decision to no longer provide free immunizations for patients with health insurance coverage is going to be a large challenge for Perry County.

    The board of health has been the only county provider for many years. Their excellent immunization record speaks for itself. In 2010 a total of 9,406 shots were administered to 3,721 patients.

  • VNA, United Way: Strong local partners

    In today’s society, health and human-services needs are ever-increasing. Providing help for people in crisis, making families and youth stronger and improving the health and well-being of individuals are much needed services in every community. By funding programs that address these and other needs, the United Way of Perry County is making a huge impact in our own community.

  • Hospital auxiliary’s holiday bazaar a success

    We want to thank everyone who supported our recent Perry County Hospital Auxiliary Holiday Bazaar by buying bake-sale items, raffle tickets, craft items, making gift shop purchases or by enjoying our turkey and dressing luncheon.
