• United Way helps to feed hungry children

    The Saint Paul Ministry of Charity would like to thank United Way of Perry County for their generous grant of $5,000 from their recent distribution of funds donated by many caring individuals and businesses in our community.

    Our organization oversees the Perry County Weekend Food Backpack Program.

    Each Friday during the school year, bags of non-perishable food help children from Cannelton, Perry Central, and Tell City meet their basic needs. We serve nearly 140 children each Friday.

  • Please don’t remove my yard signs

    Several of my yard signs, including those supporting Trump, local and state candidates, were removed from my private property along highway 70 last night.

  • Economic development never ends

    I have read statements made by political candidates who question the value of the Perry County Development Corp. These candidates may not realize but economic development should never end. The value that PCDC brings to Perry County is immeasurable.  

  • Benghazi, Clinton and the White House

    I chatted with a lady the other day while eating out per the presidential election she stated she didn’t like Donald Trump at all but she couldn’t possibly vote for Hillary Clinton because her son was a Marine citing Clinton’s involvement what happened on 9/11/2012. However the lady went onto say we need a Ronald Reagan now our conversation did end on a pleasant note however I’d like to address all the Republican derangement addressed to Hillary Clinton.

  • Deaconess VNA United Way partnership

  • I was nearly killed by semi Thursday

    I was almost killed Thursday night when a semi driver ran the stop sign at full speed at the intersection of 237 and 37.

    He passed right in front of me. He must have been half asleep or texting because somehow he missed all the flashing lights.

    I wonder if the state  should install rumble strips there. Those are impossible to ignore, by even the most distracted of drivers.

    If you have had a similar experience, I suggest you contact INDOT. Maybe together we can save a life.



  • United Way supports adult education

    Perry County Adult Education is dedicated to helping local adults prepare for and pass the High School Equivalency Examination, formerly GED, now known as TASC.

    Adult learners have many barriers to overcome. Some are internal, such as motivation or confidence; others are external, such as lack of transportation to and from class or lack of money to pay the $90 TASC test fee.

    It is our goal to remove as many barriers as we can to enable adults to be successful in our program.

  • Farm to Table dinner a big success

    On behalf of the Perry County Quality of Life Committee, I would like to thank the following individuals, businesses, and organizations. Without their support, this event would not have been as successful as it was. 

    This community effort was highlighted on Sept. 24th as volunteers from all over the county came together to host our very first annual Farm to Table dinner and concert for the residents of Perry County.  This event is one of many traditions that we, as a committee, wish to start for Perry County.
