  • New legislative agenda has the solutions we need

    Lloyd Arnold
    District 74
    State Representative

    I hope you are all keeping warm this week as the temperatures, at least as of last week, were starting to rise. The winter storm that dumped over a foot of snow in parts of Indiana, and subzero temperatures that soon followed, put a lot of strain on Hoosiers and brought schools, commerce and even the legislature to a standstill.

  • Schnell enjoyed Perry Central hospitality

    Well, I got to visit Perry County and Perry Central High School again, thanks to my oldest niece, Linda, and her husband, Herb, from Louisville, Ky.
    They enjoyed beautiful Perry County as much as I did.

    The occasion was the Perry Central vs. Mater Dei basketball game Dec. 14. The Commodores came out on top, winning by six points. Bravo for the Commodores.

    Every time I enter the Perry Central School I am impressed; it gives me the feeling that the Perry Central folks really care about their schools. Hurray for them.

  • Good hunters respect the game they pursue

    This letter is in response to the letters written by William Wilson  (“Animals deserve rights”) and (“Hunters preserve traditions”) by the officers and members of the Southern Indiana Squirrel Hunters Club and Perry County Coon Club.

    It seems to me that both sides in this argument have the same problem as many other public officials currently holding office, right on up to the U.S. Congress.

  • Ice, motels and silver linings

    Normally, it takes about eight hours to travel between Perry County and my hometown of Rockford, Ill., a sprawling, industrial city built along the Rock River near the Wisconsin border. It’s an easy route of interstates, so I frequently travel north to visit family and friends.

  • Volunteers brightened residents’ holidays

    The holiday season has come to an end and once again I want to thank the wonderful people in this community and the surrounding communities for helping to make the Christmas season so enjoyable for the residents at Golden Living Center-Lincoln Hills.

    Thank you for including residents’ names on the “Giving Trees” and thank you to those who purchased gifts. When they opened the gifts you could see a sparkle of anticipation in their eyes. Some even had tears in their eyes they were so grateful. The gifts were very much appreciated.

  • Hunters preserve proud American traditions

    This letter is being written in response to the letter written by William Wilson of Jeffersonville in last Monday’s paper. The title to his letter was “Animals deserve basic legal rights, too.”

    In reading his letter we realize he is an animal-rights activist. Supposedly he is against rodeos as he states calves should not be roped and bulls should not be ridden. Then later in his letter he states that we do not have permission to make fur coats or use animals for medical experiments.

  • Simple steps in 2014

    I used to be big into New Year’s resolutions and charted major goals for the coming 12 months. I was occasionally successful but inevitably the big plans I set: losing weight, exercising more and working less, never lasted beyond early February.

    A couple of years ago I did succeed in a goal of writing hand-written letters, as opposed to text messages, Facebook posts or emails to people I no longer see often but try to stay in contact with.  

  • City groups protecting look of downtown

    The meeting went quickly and there was no official action taken so the last meeting of the Tell City Technical Advisory Committee didn’t generate a story. However, we were happy to hear some of the comments made by committee members about the need to support development while ensuring new construction and renovation in the city are compatible with the surrounding areas.
