Today's Opinions

  • EDITORIAL: Mere threat to restrict filibusters may reduce them

    Everything isn’t always what it seems to be in politics, and sometimes just the threat to do something can produce the desired result.

    History buffs are familiar with the Judicial Procedures Reform Bill of 1937, frequently called the court-packing plan. Because the U.S. Supreme Court had ruled several parts of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal legislation unconstitutional, Roosevelt suggested this bill to add more members to the Supreme Court. The Constitution does not specify how many members the court must have.

  • LETTER: Community provides nutrition for kids

    United Way of Perry County has awarded a generous grant for the 2012-2013 school year to help support the Weekend Food Backpack Program in our county. This program supplies food over the weekend for children who come from homes where food is not always available to them.

  • LETTER: Legion auxiliary thankful for picnic support

    The American Legion Auxiliary would like to thank several businesses in Tell City for donating free coupons for the children’s summer picnic at the post home.

    The children loved the coupons for prizes. We go every year and ask them and they never turn us down and they give from the heart with a smile on their faces.

  • LETTER: County court systems should work together

    I filed a small claims in Perry County court against a Boonville business. The Boonville business wanted it transferred so Perry County allowed it. The business was supposed to pay the transfer fee but never did so I refiled in Perry County.

    The same judge allowed the same transfer back to Boonville and the same judge has now waived the transfer filing fee.

    I paid the transfer fee in Perry County and now he won’t pay in Boonville so to get my case heard I have to pay a filing fee in Boonville.
