  • Honoring our most recently fallen heroes

    Since the American Civil War brought the full horror of warfare to American shores, the United States has observed a day late in May as a time of remembrance and reflection for our nation’s war dead. Since then, too many more have joined the hundreds of thousands from that 19th century calamity.

  • Base annexation debate on the facts, not rumors

    The Perry County News hasn’t taken a direct stand on Tell City’s annexation effort.  We did publish an editorial finding some fault with the ordinance eventually adopted by the city council in April, but we have not stated our view on whether annexation should happen or not.

    The entire process is currently in a 90-day period during which a remonstrance can be filed. An effort to gather signatures needed for a formal challenge is under way and apparently making good process.

  • Commodore fan offers tribute to school

    I dedicate this letter to the fantastic Perry Central fans who deserve an A++. At all of the Perry Central games I have attended, the Perry Central fans were always the first fans at the game. That is real dedication.

  • Cole responds to former-school assessment

    The following facts may bring clarity to the recent newspaper article and the response of the Perry County assessor: the newspaper stated that the former Tell City Junior High School building was assessed at $10,000, when the correct term should have been appraised at a value of $10,000.

    Memorial Day is approaching and with it, high-school graduations, summer vacations and even a well-known auto race.

    But it’s Memorial Day we hope Perry Countians will devote some of the coming week and holiday weekend to honoring. Doing so will respect the heroism and selfless service shown by the men and women who gave their lives in service to our land.

  • Scary green alien trapped by government official

    Yep, you read that right. Aliens are threatening Perry County’s borders. No longer the stuff of science fiction, the metallic green aliens with large eyes, long flat backs and numerous legs have found us.

    But don’t run panicking into the streets just yet, scanning the skies for UFOs. Instead, look closely at your woodpiles, the bundles of firewood for sale, the beautiful ash trees shading your front yards.
