  • Hold politicians to a higher standard

    Most people have it all wrong. The “Rule of Law” doesn’t mean that laws apply to common folk. Heck, even North Koreans have that. Rule of Law means that nobody, especially among the ruling class, is above the law.

    The principle is that the greater the power, the greater the danger; so the greater the accountability. Consequences are greater when rulers make mistakes, or commit crimes, so we have constitutions as a leash on politicians, not on us regular humans.

  • Thanks for the picnic support

    St. Paul Church Picnic 2016 is history. It was a very warm, dry Sunday afternoon in the park. If you didn’t come, you missed a lot of games for the kids, you missed adult games and good fellowship.

    You missed some good food, both in the air- conditioned Parish Hall or some tasty brats, burgers, and dogs in the Park. You missed seeing a very dedicated line dance group, the Silver Steppers Dancers.

  • St. Jude Bike A Thon another success

    Cannelton Elementary recently hosted the 39th annual St. Jude’s Bike-A-Thon May 7, coordinated by Mrs. Charlene Hemmings.

    Students rode 10 miles escorted by Cannelton Street Commissioner David Marsh, showing their support for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. Overall, the children raised $2,204.20 for the hospital by getting sponsors to donate to them to ride in the Bike-A-Thon.

    Each year, Waupaca donates a bike and safety helmet to the student that raises the most money for the charity. This year, we had three students very close.

  • Family thankful for caring community

    A recent diagnosis of prostate cancer and being uninsured left us with many questions and fears. Those fears were quickly changed to nothing but positivity. This small town we call home has shown us nothing but love and support. A benefit poker run was quickly organized by family and friends to offset the medical expenses.

    The enormous amount of prayers, encouragement and donations from most every local business large and small made the event a complete success.

    The entire community backed me and my family with a warm embrace.

  • River Sweep a success

    The 2016 Ohio River Sweep has come and gone!

    Now, we would like to thank the volunteers who participated in the River Sweep. We would also like to thank the following donors of food, money and supplies: Chicago’s Pizza, Subway, Noble’s IGA, Papa John’s Pizza, German American Bank, Franzman Insurance Agency, Tell City Junior-Senior High School, Domtar, Joseph and Marilyn Schoeppel, Larry Kleeman and Perry County Memorial Hospital.

  • Golf team grateful for community support

    The Tell City Golf Club finished its first season with a record of 13-0.  The independently sponsored program’s instruction focused on skills learned in the following areas: around the green, full swing, putting, golf rules and golf etiquette.  

    As head coaches of the Tell City Golf Club, we credit the club’s success to having a well-balanced team. We had outstanding hard-working kids who all showed great improvement throughout the season.

  • Preventing ATV accidents

    State Rep. Lloyd Arnold

    District 74

     

    Unfortunately, over the past year, a few parents here in Southern Indiana have received the dreaded phone call telling them their child has been injured or killed in an all-terrain vehicle accident. As a father of four boys, I cannot begin to imagine getting a similar call. I am an outdoorsman who enjoys bringing my kids along with me and I understand how fun it is when the entire family participates in activities such as hunting, fishing, hiking and riding.

  • Thanks for making postal food drive a success

    The Council on Agencies would like to give a sincere thank you to the U.S. Post Office and all of the postal workers who collected food and to anyone who contributed food in the annual food rive.

    Also a thank you to the volunteers who helped in this drive and to anyone else who has given food to the Council of Agencies. It is very much appreciated.

    Anyone interested in becoming a volunteer can contact a member by calling (812) 547-7393.

    Treasurer, Perry County Council of Agencies

  • Thank you, Perry County Memorial Hospital

    To all doctors, nurses, security, cleaning crew, respiratory dept, telephone operators and anyone else I may have missed:

    My mom and I would like to sincerely thank you from the bottom to the top of our hearts.

    My mom came in to your hospital because her blood count was low and after being admitted and given blood, she had an attack of her appendix. She was then taken into surgery for an appendectomy.

  • Hillary Clinton’s progressive nightmare

    At a recent Hillary Clinton political rally in California, she expressed an unusual sentiment. The essence of what she said is that she is going to make America what they all know it can be. To make America what they all know it can be? You gotta be kidding!
