  • Troy and all the trucks

    If it’s the job of a newspaper to occasionally lend an ear and give a voice to those who feel afflicted and it falls at times on its editor to lead that effort.

    Thus this column on behalf of Troy about the many, many trucks which pass through the town every day. “Afflicted” may be too strong of a word, but I fear some Troy residents feel overrun by truck traffic and sense their quality of life is being impacted.

  • Supporting United Way helps all of us

    United Way of Perry County’s yearly campaign is in full swing and once again your help is needed to make it a success. This year’s campaign hopes to raise $125,000 for support groups that provide important services in our community.

    United Way donations have supported our young people through 4-H and Scouting, Perry Childcare, those with physical and mental challenges through Anderson Woods Camp and provided emergency care to our own through the American Red Cross when fires, storms and other disasters strike.

  • Fair representation can’t be found in the legislature’s lobby

    “Everyone, it seemed tried to get their pet issue some attention Tuesday,” the words sprang from the page like daggers to the eye – and the psyche – in Wednesday’s Courier-Press article about the start of the 2018 Indiana General Assembly.  It was a glaring statement that points to what most know but have little ability to correct; the influence of outside lobby in our policy making.

  • State’s population decline no mystery

    My job affords me the opportunity to speak often in different communities inside and outside of Indiana. As it turns out, population change always emerges as a prime topic in the question and answer period. But there’s a curious asymmetry to the questions.

  • As the holiday season nears, are you thankful for the church?

    By Charles Areson

    Guest Columnist

     

    As we enter a season of Thanksgiving and Christmas, our hearts normally turn toward the things of which we are thankful and the gifts we have given and received. In that spirit, I would like to ask you to think of the church, specifically, the churches of Tell City.

  • OUR VIEW: Shop local on small business Saturday

    Thanksgiving is just days away and with the holiday comes the official start of the Christmas shopping season. It seems we like to come up with names for big shopping days. There’s Black Friday of course, the day after Thanksgiving, and Small Business Saturday on the following day. With the growing emphasis on online shopping, there’s even Cyber Monday.

  • HabiTREE Event a wonderful success

    Thank you to all of the businesses, organizations and individuals that graciously made donations for the Perry County Habitat for Humanity HabiTREE event.   The event was held on Friday, Nov. 10, to fundraise for the 20th home that will be built in Perry County in 2018. 

  • Many hands made Explosion of Fun a hit

    Community Christian Church would like to thank the following local businesses for contributing items that were used as prizes at our Halloween alternative, “Explosion of Fun” on Oct. 31.

    The event was attended by more than 900 visitors and was a rollicking success.
