Today's Opinions

  • Sheriff’s deputies deserve enhanced retirement

    It sounds as if the debate on county sheriff’s deputies retirement pay, which dates back to the start of this decade, could soon be resolved. In a time when benefits packages are dwindling across the board for many employees, we support the incentive to keep good officers on the job.

  • Labor: building momentum and creating change

    On Labor Day, we recognize and honor the achievements of America’s working people. In 2017, this annual celebration comes at a critical time for our nation. A time where collective action is on the rise, yet so are the attacks on our pay, health care, retirement security and rights on the job.

  • Stuff the bus raised more than $5,000 in school supplies and cash for students

    The United Way of Perry County wishes to thank all of the volunteers who worked a very hot weekend collecting school supplies for our local schools.

    As a result of these individuals giving their time and talents, children at Cannelton, Head Start, Perry Central and Tell City schools were gifted $3,735 worth of supplies purchased at Walmart, and Stuff the Bus disbursed $2,741 in cash donations collected over that weekend.

  • Perry Central’s eclipse watch a success

    The Great American Eclipse was an exciting event for Perry Central students, thanks to the efforts and generosity of our community. Perry Central Community Schools would like to extend a huge thank you to all those who made it a day that students will remember by donating time and money to supply certified viewing glasses and documenting the event.

  • Saving Rome’s courthouse will take all of us

    We wish the best of luck to organizers who met in Rome Thursday night to seek ways to both honor the upcoming bicentennial of the Rome Courthouse and to preserve it for future generations.

    The courthouse needs work and most pressing, perhaps, is its roof. Other parts of the building need work and updates, such as the kitchen, for it to continue serving the community for events such as the annual Dogwood Tour.

    Like a lot of people, I expected a bit more darkness when last Monday’s moon covered about 97 percent of the sun. The remaining 3 percent carried quite the punch.

  • Our View: City needs insurance adviser

    We credit the Tell City Common Council for its decision earlier this month to seek bids on city insurance. We know of no issues with the city’s existing insurance coverage or provider but we think competition is a good thing, whether the city is purchasing insurance coverage, gasoline for its fleet of vehicles or asphalt for streets.
