  • When to fly the flag at half staff

    As I drive by the wayside, I notice more national flags. As we start to warm up for summer – Memorial Day will be upon us before we know it – and I wonder how long has it been since many of you read Public Law 94-344. It was passed by the 94th Congress and signed by the president of the USA.

    Days for flying the flag at half staff. Half staff until noon, then raised to top of the pole. By order the of the president, the flag shall be flown at half staff upon the death of principal figures of the U.S. government or governor of a sate or territory.

  • School’s celebrity dinner a success

    The first annual Celebrity Waiter Dinner for the junior class at Cannelton High School was a great success.

  • Soil and water conservation district values nature

    Every Earth Day, we at the Perry Soil and Water Conservation District reflect on the beauty of the natural resources we get to enjoy in Perry County.

    Our staff is grateful for the opportunity to work with members of the community to facilitate voluntary initiatives to conserve land, water, forests and wildlife in our area. We are one of 92 Soil and Water Conservation Districts across the state – and nearly 3,000 across the nation – that provide a neighborly presence to help preserve and protect the natural resources that we all love.

  • Support needed for homegrown biofuels

    Homegrown biofuels are propelling Indiana’s economy forward. Our 14 ethanol   plants not only provide a vital market for Indiana crops, they support thousands of jobs statewide.

    That’s why it is critical for Indiana lawmakers like Sen. Todd Young and  Congressman Larry Bucshon to stand up for the Renewable Fuel Standard, which protects consumer access to biofuels. Thanks to this policy, farmers  get to compete at the pump. And it’s working.

  • Good Friday dinner a big success

    On Good Friday, Brick by Brick and St. Benedict’s Brew Works hosted a fund-raising buffet at the Tell City Depot.

    More than 200 people attended during the day and the funds raised will help Brick by Brick continue its mission of improving the appearance of downtown Tell City.

    Over the past year, we have provided cost-sharing funds to several businesses who made improvements to their properties.

    Thanks to everyone who attended and Brick by Brick members for giving up their time on Good Friday to work the grills, serve meals and clean tables.

  • Generational cell-phone-use views off base

    Dear Mr. Bethel, regarding your April 10 editorial about cell phones and other devices ... allow me a few words.

    I don’t have at my fingertips any scientific studies of the breakdown of uses of the new devices by age, gender, or ethnic background. Apparently you do not either. If you did have such studies, you would have been wise to share. It would have added weight to your argument.

  • Cheers to ‘Parents Just Don’t Understand’ cast

    Editor’s Note: Letters to the editor normally run on Monday’s Page 4 but we don’t often run photos with them. The letter below thanking students and volunteers for their work on the Tell City High School Drama Club production of “Parents Just Don’t Understand” warrants an exception. It was written by teacher Joyce Stath but her sentiments have been echoed many times over. Congratulations, students, on a job well done.

     

  • School yard sale a hit
