  • Eliminate sales tax on residential water bills

    Editor’s Note: This open letter by Larry Kleeman was addressed to Gov. Elect Eric Holcomb, Sen. Erin Houchin and Rep. Lloyd Arnold.

     

    Dear Gov. Elect Holcomb, Sen. Houchin and Rep. Arnold:

     

    I know you are concerned, as am I, about hard working Hoosiers and families living on fixed incomes being able to maintain a decent standard of living when faced with increased costs of living.

  • Proud of Commodore sportsmanship

    This handicapped military veteran, also known as Cowboy Tex and Super Commodore, enjoyed another Perry Central basketball game recently. Thanks to my cousins who provided the transportation.

    My favorite part of the game is when the losers congratulate the winners – friendly competition. It’s just good sportsmanship.

    Also, thanks to the Perry County businesses for sponsoring Perry Central games on the radio station.

    Go Commodores.

  • Don’t get cheated this holiday season

    It’s the busiest time of the year for most of us. While retailers enjoy the extra business and we enjoy the holidays with family and friends, it’s also a time that can bring out the worst in scammers and con artists. In particular, all consumers should keep their guard up about scams involving their utility services.

    Here’s what typically happens: A consumer (often a small business) will receive a call from someone claiming to work for his or her utility.

  • Horse Rescue South says thanks

    Horse Rescue South would like to say a very special thank you to all of the businesses,  companies and people who have supported us recently.

    Thank you to Mike and Becky Thorn, Todd Dauby, Arron Van Winkle and Terry and Sue Rogers for all the hay they donated.

  • Removing the sales tax from utility bills would save Hoosiers money

    I recently read the “Arnold Account,” Keeping Hoosier homes warm this winter, and would like to offer the following comments:

    The community action agencies, organizations referenced, serving Spencer, Perry and Crawford Counties are Lincoln Hills Development Corp. (812-547-3435) and serving Dubois, Warrick and Pike, Tri-Cap (812-482-2233).

    These local, nonprofit agencies do a great job, serving hundreds of individuals every year.

    The funds are Federal funds passing through the state agency to these local organizations.

  • United Way’s support of schools appreciated

    United Way of Perry County is an optimistic beacon in our community, seeing our children as our future and taking a visionary approach to community growth. 

    This attitude led United Way of Perry County to support Perry Central Robotics, and we extend our sincere thanks to the organization and the many donors who make the work of United Way of Perry County possible.

  • Benefit for Tammy Scott Tanner a success

    On Oct. 29, a benefit was held to help my mother, Tammy Scott Tanner, to help offset the financial burden of her cancer diagnosis and treatment.

    On July 14 of this year, my mother underwent a double mastectomy after being diagnosed with breast cancer and she has been hospitalized due to the effects of chemotherapy. As of this writing, she is currently still hospitalized due to lung problems caused by chemo.

    She was working but only part time, so she was not eligible for any benefits or leave pay.
