  • Tell City Band boosters say thank you

    The Tell City Band Boosters would like to thank everyone who helped make our auction a success.

    A special thank you goes to Scott Dixon of Dixon & Dixon Auctioneers, Kelly Peter, Angie Moseby and everyone who came out to support our auction.

  • LETTER: It’s a great day to be a Tell City Marksman

    Both as citizens of the community and members of Tell City Junior-Senior High School, we would like to express our gratitude to the many, many people who have helped revitalize the softball fields in our town.

    In attending some recent softball games, we can feel the pride that our students have in the facility, and the community is very grateful for the work you have given.

    We know there are too many people to list who have volunteered their time and donated their resources to make this happen.

  • LETTER: Council vote created no room for neutrality

    Randy Cole (May 22 story) was correct in his statement that “anyone who declines to sign the petition is on Tell City’s side.” The only way to stop annexation is through remonstrance signatures.

  • LETTER: There is no coercion in obtaining signatures

    This letter is in response to the May 26 News editorial, “Base annexation debate on the facts, not rumors.”

    I completely agree that the Perry County News has not taken sides, has not taken a stand, and has been neutral on the whole thing. And I applaud you for that.

    About your concerns of what Randy Cole said, maybe I can help clear it up. When we had the first petition drive in February, I personally went door to door to get people’s opinions, and signatures.

  • LETTER: Runners, walkers made their moms proud

    We want to thank everyone who helped make the Run for Your Mother 5K Fun Run-Walk on Mother’s Day such a huge success. We had 211 people registered.

    From individuals to entire families, people of all ages were running and walking in honor of their moms. It was a wonderful day.

  • Rome Community Center, Methodist Church say thanks for helping Dogwood succeed

    The Rome Community Center and the Rome Methodist Church want to thank so many people for the wonderful day we had here during the Dogwood Festival in April.  The weather was beautiful and that allowed everyone to enjoy the day.

  • 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.

    Thanks to the generosity of community members, we were pleased this year that we were able to award 38 scholarships in the amount of $33,850 to Perry County students. Generous donors who care about the community created scholarship funds that assist students in their educational endeavors.

  • 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.
