  • Foundation congratulates 2014 graduates

    The Perry County Community Foundation wishes to congratulate all graduating seniors and their families. We share in their excitement as they begin a new journey in their lives.

  • Where’s justice, victim of theft asks

    In December of 2012, the week after Christmas, my house was broken into while  my family was out of town visiting relatives.

    Several items worth about $2,500 were stolen, my back door was kicked in  and my house was trashed.  At  least one of the offenders was caught at a local store  selling items that had been stolen.  I wrote a letter to the editor then, expressing my feelings about the store’s policy toward returning stolen items.

  • 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.
