  • Taste of the Holiday had many helpers

    Thank you to everyone who attended the Perry County Chamber of Commerce 2013 “Taste of the Holidays” event.  You helped make this a great event by getting a taste of local food, wine and shopping.

    Thank you to the entrepreneurs and businesses that donated to the silent auction and to those that participated in the booth sales opportunity the event provided. You were a huge part of the event and we thank you for participating.

  • Former educator thankful for trips to county

    Again, I had the pleasure of attending the St. Isidore shooting match this year. Thanks again to Terry Kempf, who provided my transportation.

    I enjoyed conversations with several fine folks of Perry County, one person being recently retired Gordon Taylor, a fine gentleman from the Perry Central Community School Corp.

    I have enjoyed my visits to the Tell City nursing centers, where I have given concerts at happy hour time.

    Some of my former Perry Central students’ parents and grandparents may be residing there.

  • SIRS appreciative of United Way's funding

    Within our community we have an organization that touches so many of us in a multitude of ways. The United Way of Perry County works tirelessly behind the scenes and on the front lines to create a better life for those who live in Perry County.

    From its volunteers who work with United Way Days of Caring, to the system of grants they allow to their partners in our community, United Way touches the lives of everyone in Perry County.

  • Obama Adminstration’s actions over five years proves Chicago-style politics still around

    We have all heard of Al Capone and how he controlled Chicago in the 1930s. He had the judges, lawyers, press, state governor and the people on his side. He bought anyone who would resist him. He thought he was the almighty answer to any problem.

    Certainly there were times when he thought he was an untouchable. The federal government went after him but they could not get him for murder. They used the IRS to bring him down for tax evasion. We now have a Chicago-style style administration in Washington. A dictator, a tyrannical government.

  • Village open house a credit to volunteers

    Shubael Little Pioneer Village once again had a most successful open house Oct. 19-20. Following those two days, we hosted 85 fifth-graders from Perry Central and 129 kindergartners from Tell City. There are so many to thank for our success.

  • Century supported pancreatic cancer fight

    November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month. This cancer is the fourth-leading cause of cancer death in the United States.

    Although decades behind  other cancers in research discoveries and treatment options, pancreatic cancer receives the least amount of federal funding of all major cancer killers, approximately only 2 percent of the National Cancer Institute’s annual budget.

  • Residents thankful for large-print books

    The tenants of Twilight Towers would like to thank everyone who donated their gently used large-print books to our library.

    Because of your donations the tenants are reading more often now. The books are most appreciated.

  • News should be ashamed of headline

    In regard to the headline in the Oct. 31 issue of the Perry County News. That was the most objectionable, disgusting, degrading headline I have ever seen splashed across the front page of a small community’s newspaper.

    The fact that something like that could and did happen is bad enough, but the fact that you felt it necessary to emblazon it in very large print was completely uncaring for the people of Cannelton, who are striving to make our city a better place to live.

  • LETTER: Supporters made Legion Post 213’s picnic a success

    The American Legion held its family picnic Sept. 15. I would like to thank everyone for helping and I would like to publicly give credit to the businesses for donating coupons for the kids games.

    Thanks to Wendy’s, Dairy Queen, Taco Bell and McDonald’s.

    Thanks again.
