  • City needs to enforce its noise ordinance

    Approximately 30 years ago, the common council in Tell City passed a noise ordinance, No. 544.

    As far as I know, it has never been enforced with any warnings or fines. Why?

    The ordinance covers motor vehicles, trucks, mufflers, “music” boom boxes, etc. Noise level limit can be measured on a distance of not less than 15 feet from the noise source. 

    When it can be heard more than half a mile away, I would say that’s a violation.

    Our streets were not intended for hot rodding, drag racing or excessive noise.

  • Thank you, food drive supporters

    To all letter carriers who collected food and other items for the food pantries, we extend a big thank you.

    Also to the people who were so kind as to donate food and other items for distribution to area food pantries, we are very thankful. All donations are given to the less fortunate families in our area. Thanks again to all who gave to this great project.

  • Our View: Slowpokes get raw deal in new Indiana driving law

    What kind of lawmakers pass legislation that penalizes law-abiding citizens in an effort to ease the angst of lawbreakers?

    Our kind, apparently.

    Come July 1, it will be illegal in Indiana for slower motorists, even those for whom “slow” is the legal speed limit, to drive in the left lane if faster-moving traffic wants to pass.

  • Limit screen time this summer

    Now that school is out and summer break is here, many Perry County youngsters will look to alternate ways to spend their time. “I’m bored!” is a phrase parents and caregivers often hear, especially as the weeks pass.
