  • LETTER: Your United Way contribution supports family-outreach efforts at Perry Central

    Perry Central Family Outreach is proud to be one of the many community agencies to receive funds from the United Way of Perry County. With their support, Family Outreach facilitates and sponsors a variety of programs and projects year round to help the families of Perry County obtain the skills they need to succeed and to assist at risk families.

  • LETTER: Bringing clarity to the facts, not twisting them

    Let me bring clarity to the vacation issue referenced by Mack Cail in his letter in the September 15th issue of the Perry County News.

    All school employees have written documents that specifically list wages and benefits.

    After reviewing all files, including multiple-year contracts, I found nothing which provides for the vacation days in question. If vacation days are not included in an employment contract, the school corporation should not spend your tax dollars to pay for them. This issue has nothing to do with “liking or disliking” anyone.

  • LETTER: Jackson proud of accomplishments he, many others have made in Cannelton

    As the former canine handler for the Cannelton Police Department, I would like to take time and say thank you, to so many supporters who helped make me and canine Erik better.

    I would like to start off and say thank you to Chief Lee Hall for giving me the opportunity to be a part of the canine unit, along with other officers of the police department for helping during trainings and helping during our time of serving.

  • Work share program needed in Indiana

    Work share is a positive option for both companies and their employees in times of economic need. It is a voluntary program that allows employers to maintain skilled and stable workforces during temporary economic downturns. It allows employees to keep their jobs and benefits instead of facing unemployment and further financial uncertainty. And the state wins through a reduction in job losses.

  • School-board vote on vacation-time issue was based on facts

    The matter of the vacation time for administrative assistant Bruce Chinn came up in a May 13, 2014, meeting of the Tell City-Troy Township School Board.

    (Board member) Sherry Flynn passed a note to then Superintendent Lynn Blinzinger which said, “Keep Bruce’s contract as is. Do not approve 107 days in one year’s vacation time. Instead pay him for those days that are on his check stub at his daily rate. If it is on his check stub, we owe him. If it is not, we don’t. In my opinion, this is unreasonable.”

  • LETTER - Work of many made St. Meinrad Rocks! a hit

    I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who supported the fourth annual St. Meinrad Rocks! Fest.

    The actual event was far from the original plan. Intense heat and major storms controlled the day and due to the weather, the decision was made to shut down the show around 6 p.m. Saturday. The safety of my performers and guests, as well as the protection of the stage and sound equipment were all taken into consideration. Even after the major storm had passed, lightning was intense and rain came and went.
