Letters

  • Our community filled with ‘Holiday Helpers’

    The United Way of Perry County would like to thank all the members of our community who helped make Christmas brighter for over 560 children through the Holiday Helpers United Christmas Assistance program. It was truly a community wide effort.

  • Donations support breast-cancer fight

    During October 2013, many businesses on Main Street in Tell City collected money for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

    The idea of collecting money to benefit breast-cancer patients was proposed by Skinsations. Several businesses collected money during the entire month of October. Some businesses used the money to purchase an assortment of wigs and hats, while others collected the money so wigs, hats and other items could be purchased for local cancer and chemotherapy patients. What an awesome act of kindness!

  • Thanks for making Silvesternacht a success

    On behalf of the members of the Perry County Quality of Life Committee, we would like to extend our thanks to the numerous partners who assisted us in the second annual Silversternacht celebration on New Year’s Eve.

    This year’s event resulted in even larger crowds who were able to take part in the memorable activities of the evening thanks to the cooperative spirit from local businesses, organizations and school corporations.

  • Schnell enjoyed Perry Central hospitality

    Well, I got to visit Perry County and Perry Central High School again, thanks to my oldest niece, Linda, and her husband, Herb, from Louisville, Ky.
    They enjoyed beautiful Perry County as much as I did.

    The occasion was the Perry Central vs. Mater Dei basketball game Dec. 14. The Commodores came out on top, winning by six points. Bravo for the Commodores.

    Every time I enter the Perry Central School I am impressed; it gives me the feeling that the Perry Central folks really care about their schools. Hurray for them.

  • Good hunters respect the game they pursue

    This letter is in response to the letters written by William Wilson  (“Animals deserve rights”) and (“Hunters preserve traditions”) by the officers and members of the Southern Indiana Squirrel Hunters Club and Perry County Coon Club.

    It seems to me that both sides in this argument have the same problem as many other public officials currently holding office, right on up to the U.S. Congress.

  • Volunteers brightened residents’ holidays

    The holiday season has come to an end and once again I want to thank the wonderful people in this community and the surrounding communities for helping to make the Christmas season so enjoyable for the residents at Golden Living Center-Lincoln Hills.

    Thank you for including residents’ names on the “Giving Trees” and thank you to those who purchased gifts. When they opened the gifts you could see a sparkle of anticipation in their eyes. Some even had tears in their eyes they were so grateful. The gifts were very much appreciated.

  • Hunters preserve proud American traditions

    This letter is being written in response to the letter written by William Wilson of Jeffersonville in last Monday’s paper. The title to his letter was “Animals deserve basic legal rights, too.”

    In reading his letter we realize he is an animal-rights activist. Supposedly he is against rodeos as he states calves should not be roped and bulls should not be ridden. Then later in his letter he states that we do not have permission to make fur coats or use animals for medical experiments.

  • Animals deserve basic legal rights, too

    Who decides what is property? It’s the people who claim ownership. At one-time, African-Americans were considered property. What gave those people the right to do that?

    Under current law, domestic animals are considered as property. Who gave us that right? Many people point to the Bible, which says God let man rule over his creation. If I were to create something and tell you to take care of it, that does not make it your property.

    Man can create things like houses, furniture, machines, etc., but only God can create life.

  • Column lacked respect for city council

    I was somewhat surprised and also saddened that the managing editor of the News (Kevin Koelling’s Dec. 16 column “Let’s make residents put their toys away.”) appeared to me, seemed to degrade two present city council members concerning their efforts to investigate possibilities of improving the visual appearances of our fair city’s streets.

  • Legion Post 142, Auxiliary, Sons of the Legion thank all who made Cannelton parade a success

    Cannelton American Legion Post 142, Auxiliary and Sons of the American Legion wish to thank everyone who participated, helped organize and worked this year’s 2013 annual Christmas Parade.
