    United Way of Perry County would like to take this opportunity to thank the youth, youth group leaders, and various businesses and agencies of the community for taking part in this year’s successful “Youth Day of Caring” Sunday, Nov. 2.

  • LETTER: Schnell enjoyed recent visit to Perry Central

    Dec. 5 felt like Super Commodore Day in wonderful Perry County. I feel like I’m on a roll at the age of 84.

    On that grand day I ate pizza with the Perry Central volleyball sectional champs and I later entertained the residents at Oakwood Health Campus in Tell City with a happy hour Christmas concert with carols.

    After the concert, I enjoyed supper at Marcy’s in Leopold with Perry Central Community School Corp. Superintendent Mary Roberson and my relatives, who served as my drivers.

  • LETTER: Hospital auxiliary thanks bazaar helpers

    We would like to thank everyone who supported our Perry County Memorial Hospital Auxiliary Bazaar held recently. So many helped by buying baked goods and craft items, making gift shop purchases or bidding on our silent-auction items.

    Many others bought tickets for the turkey and dressing dinners. A special thanks to all the auxiliary members who worked that day, prepared baked items or made something for the craft sale. It takes a lot of members, help from the hospital staff, the kitchen staff, and community members who attended to make this a successful event every year.

    Andrea Neal is a teacher at St. Richard’s Episcopal School in Indianapolis and an adjunct scholar with the Indiana Policy Review Foundation. This is one in a series of essays leading up to the celebration of the Indiana Bicentennial in December 2016.

    Indiana’s 1816 Constitution called for a statewide system of free public schools but it didn’t happen until the 1850s – after education reformers demanded it.

  • COLUMN: Once in Royal David’s city

    By ROBERT MORRISON

    The ancient scriptures tell us the story of a census, a time for everyone to register with the government and enroll with the powers that ruled over them. A young carpenter took his wife to Bethlehem because that was the city of David, and the story tells us, that is where the Roman ruler required them to go so they could be taxed.
