  • EDITORIAL: Who was watching the Cannelton Schools cash drawer?

    When properly communicated and carried out, the words, “We’re watching you” can be powerful.

    They apparently haven’t been uttered by the board of trustees for the Cannelton City Schools.

    Who was minding the cash drawer for the school corporation as hundreds of thousands of dollars were being diverted? And why were most of the diversions not detected or acted upon until a state audit was conducted?

  • LETTER: Retailers: Keep your cash registers honest

    From what I have been hearing, people in this area are sick and tired as I am going to the supermarkets in and around Tell City and buying items that are on sale, but when they get to the cash register, they are charged the full prices.

    Seems they always have an excuse but I think it is on purpose because it has happened to me three times in the past two weeks.

    This tells me there are hundreds of other people this is happening to. Some people are o fed up they are going out of town to do shopping.

  • LETTER: Nation’s leaders can’t ignore Alzheimer’s

    Together, the Alzheimer’s Association and individuals like you led the way to an historic victory for the Alzheimer’s community: the first ever National Alzheimer’s Plan.

    This comprehensive national plan outlines the important goal to prevent and effectively treat Alzheimer’s disease by 2025.

    Even as we celebrate this achievement, our work is not done.

    Editor’s Note: This letter was penned by Terry Thrift after a visit to Perry County. The letter was sent to Bev Minto, director of the Perry County Convention and Visitors Bureau.

    Hello, Bev Minto. I wanted to let you know about my recent visit to Tell City to see my long-time friends Pat and Jerry Cooper this past May. I met them back in 1988 and, of course, always enjoyed their company.
