Letters

  • LETTER: Red Cross appreciates United Way support

    The American Red Cross, through the support of donors like United Way of Perry County, offers a wide range of services to help our neighbors, friends and family members throughout Perry County.

    Local volunteers assist individuals who lose their homes to a fire or natural disaster, assist our first responders who work tirelessly to save lives, provide communication services and financial assistance to members of the armed forces, provide nearly half our nation’s blood supply, and teach lifesaving CPR and other educational courses.

  • LETTER: Scouts benefit from your United Way gifts

    Boy Scout Troop 192 of Tell City has been active in the community since receiving their first charter in 1930.

    So far, nearly 50 Scouts have earned the rank of Eagle, with four more Scouts about ready to achieve the rank. The troop has been very active in the community by donating their time at various functions.

  • LETTER: Perry County’s veterans groups continue long tradition of honoring those who served

    The rendering of military funeral honors is a way to show the nation’s deep gratitude to those who, in times of war and peace, have faithfully defended our country. This ceremonial paying of respect is the final demonstration a grateful nation can provide to the veterans’ family and friends. Military funeral honors are a long-standing tradition within the armed forces. This tradition is carried on by those who become members of our veteran organizations such as the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the American Legion.

  • LETTER: Interested in learning about TC Kiwanis?

    The Tell City Kiwanis has been an active organization in our community since May 1927. The organization’s focus is to serve children.

  • LETTER: Nation’s Constitution serves us every day

    Sept. 17-23 begins the national celebration of Constitution Week. It is a weeklong celebration of remembering the most important document in our nation, a document that allows us to maintain our liberties and freedom.

    We often take for granted the simple things in our lives, never really giving much thought of our freedom of free speech, freedom to choose our own religion, our right to bear arms, or to assemble and petition.

    We are the greatest country in the world for many reasons but our Constitution allows us to be.

  • LETTER: Zoning changes will provide boost for new business

    Editor’s Note: This letter makes reference to a December 2012 story on the Tell City zoning board’s rezoning of land for storage units along Dauby Lane.

    I understand that residents are concerned about the unsightly or unkept units, but I also understand the need for the secured storage units. As residents of a small community, we should do whatever we can to support small businesses that provide a service. The success of their business depends on us and their ability to provide their service, in this case, a clean and secure unit for rent.

  • LETTER: Erin Owen, family thankful for support

    I would like to thank the many people who have kept me in their thoughts and prayers since February. And to anyone who sent donations, purchased T-shirts, brought food after my surgery and continue to give support, I want to thank you, too.

    I would like to thank everyone who helped to make the cancer benefit in my honor a success. To Danielle Kirtley for organizing the event, donating her time and support.

  • LETTER: Knights of Columbus grateful for aid

    The Knights of Columbus would like to thank the many area businesses that donated items for our Aug. 24 event. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

  • LETTER: Great hosts made Greener Pastures fun

    On Aug. 27, Justin and Amber Roth on Eureka Road in Spencer County opened up their farm to the public for a grazing field day called Greener Pastures.

    This is an event that Perry, Spencer and Dubois counties host together every three years. This year happened to be Spencer County’s turn and Justin Roth graciously agreed to host the event. They were so easy going and great to work with, that they made the planning process flow effortlessly.

  • LETTER: Habitat for Humanity grateful for support

    We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who stopped by the Perry County Habitat for Humanity booth at Schweizer Fest this year.

    We hope you enjoyed our homemade cobbler and ice cream despite the rainy weather.

    We appreciate your continued support.

    If anyone is interested in working with Habitat to build and purchase a home, please call the Habitat office at 547-4805 for an application.

    Habitat is always looking for volunteers interested in our building projects and working with our partner families as well.
