Letters

  • Commodore fan offers tribute to school

    I dedicate this letter to the fantastic Perry Central fans who deserve an A++. At all of the Perry Central games I have attended, the Perry Central fans were always the first fans at the game. That is real dedication.

  • Cole responds to former-school assessment

    The following facts may bring clarity to the recent newspaper article and the response of the Perry County assessor: the newspaper stated that the former Tell City Junior High School building was assessed at $10,000, when the correct term should have been appraised at a value of $10,000.

  • LETTER: River Sweep 2014 needs your help June 21

    Mark your calendars and make plans to join other volunteers for the 2014 Ohio River Sweep. This event will be held Saturday, June 21, from 9 a.m. until noon at Sunset park in Tell City and Hafele Park in Cannelton.

    The Ohio River Sweep is a riverbank cleanup that extends the entire length of the Ohio River and beyond. More than 3,000 miles of shoreline will be combed for trash and debris.

    This is the largest environmental event of its kind and encompasses six states.

    If you are unable to join us picking up trash, you can help in other ways.

  • LETTER: Heroes show us why voting is so important

    On Tuesday morning, I finished another 14-hour shift about 5 a.m. I thought I’d stop and vote on the way home. I got to Eagle’s Bluff about 20 minutes before the polls opened. I sat in my ol’ truck about to doze off and thought maybe I’d just go home. Why bother?

    Then three good reasons to bother occurred to me. They were Buddy Gude, Mark Miller and Barry Jarvis. Buddy is my wife’s uncle, whom she never met because he is missing in action in Korea. When Mark was young, his family lived across the road from me at Millstone.

  • LETTER: Tootsie Roll drive raises nearly $4,000

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

  • Knights of Columbus golf scramble helps Special Olympics

    Tell City Knights of Columbus Council 1172 held its annual Special Olympics Charity Golf Scramble April 14 at Hoosier Heights Country Club. The council wishes to thank the sponsors for supporting the event. Without the support of sponsors it would not be possible for it to be a success.

  • Renaissance Club’s lip-sync contest a huge success

    On April 11, the Tell City Junior-Senior High School Renaissance class hosted its seventh-annual lip sync competition in the high-school auditorium. Fourteen groups performed, including one teacher group and 13 student acts. This could not have been done without the amazing support of the following groups and people:

  • Sentences don’t always match the crime

    This is in response to the article, “Tell City man will serve 15 years for child battery,” April 10 issue about the man sentenced to 15 years in prison and five years of community corrections and probation for battering a 4-month-old to the point of permanent brain damage.

    I’m no angel, I’ll admit I made a bad mistake and I’m serving time for it. I got arrested for meth related charges and I’m doing 24 years.
