  • Hospital’s bazaar had plenty of supporters

    We want to thank everyone who supported our recently held Perry County Memorial Hospital Auxiliary Holiday Bazaar by buying baked goods and craft items, making gift-shop purchases or bidding on our silent-auction items, or by just enjoying our turkey and dressing luncheon.

  • Hot chocolate success at Tell City Schools

    The Tell City Junior-Senior High School Renaissance Program served hot chocolate to its students, staff and faculty this Monday for the holiday season.

    This would not have been possible without the generous donation of many cups from C&S Inc.

    Renaissance and the entire school would like to thank you for your donation.

  • Perry County is a great place to call home

    I was reading the stories on the front page of the Dec. 12 B section. I like them and agree with every one of them.

    Tell City is a small town and it always will be. I have lived here all my life. I cannot see me living anyplace else. Bigger cities have a lot more crime and traffic.

    There are a lot of good people living here. I think it is just a shame though you can’t even buy a 2-by-4 board here in town. Some new stores open, some close. Do you ever get ahead?

  • Horse Rescue group thankful for supporters

    Horse Rescue South Inc. would like to say thank you to the following for their support:

  • Who was Lee Oswald?

    FRANK SANDAGE
    GUEST COLUMNIST

    Have you ever thought about the anatomy of human destructiveness? I am going to put Lee Oswald on my psychiatric couch for you in order to explain him in terms of his individual psychology.

    I start with this understanding. Man’s awareness of himself as being in a strange and overpowering world and his consequent sense of impotence could easily overwhelm him.

  • ’Twas just days before Christmas

    ’Twas four days before Christmas and all through my house, there were no Christmas decorations for anyone to see, not even a little tree. Sorry, I could not find a rhyme for “mouse.”

    As I finish this column on Friday, my house in New Boston is void of any real Christmas cheer. I have yet to find a tree, string lights or pull out stockings, figurines or any of the other Christmasy items I keep in a spare bedroom.

  • Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus

    Editor’s Note: In the months before the Christmas of 1897, an 8-year-old girl named Virginia O’Hanlon wrote a letter to the New York Sun, asking if there really was a Santa Claus. Edward P. Mitchell gave the assignment to Francis P. Church, whose reply to Virginia appeared in the Sept. 21, 1897, edition of the Sun. Virginia’s letter and Church’s reply, as it appeared in the Sun, are reprinted below. Virginia O’Hanlon Douglas died May 13, 1971.
