  • LETTER: Your United Way contribution supports family-outreach efforts at Perry Central

    Perry Central Family Outreach is proud to be one of the many community agencies to receive funds from the United Way of Perry County. With their support, Family Outreach facilitates and sponsors a variety of programs and projects year round to help the families of Perry County obtain the skills they need to succeed and to assist at risk families.

  • LETTER: Bringing clarity to the facts, not twisting them

    Let me bring clarity to the vacation issue referenced by Mack Cail in his letter in the September 15th issue of the Perry County News.

    All school employees have written documents that specifically list wages and benefits.

    After reviewing all files, including multiple-year contracts, I found nothing which provides for the vacation days in question. If vacation days are not included in an employment contract, the school corporation should not spend your tax dollars to pay for them. This issue has nothing to do with “liking or disliking” anyone.

  • LETTER: Jackson proud of accomplishments he, many others have made in Cannelton

    As the former canine handler for the Cannelton Police Department, I would like to take time and say thank you, to so many supporters who helped make me and canine Erik better.

    I would like to start off and say thank you to Chief Lee Hall for giving me the opportunity to be a part of the canine unit, along with other officers of the police department for helping during trainings and helping during our time of serving.

    By LLOYD ARNOLD

    Even though the school year is well under way, it is always important to remind our children about school bus safety. As a father of four boys and a licensed school bus driver who helps drive students to field trips and athletic events, I think about this topic often. I recently came across tips for school bus safety from the Indiana State Police, and I thought that I would share some with you this week.

  • COLUMN: The man trying to keep Cannelton Schools alive

    Alva Sibbitt and I had breakfast a couple of weeks ago. We talked about a lot of things over the course of an hour. The focus was on his work as Cannelton City Schools superintendent.

  • EDITORIAL: Get on board the Indiana Bicentennial Train

    Henry Ford famously said, “History is bunk.” But most leaders in any walk of life feel history is important because it is what makes the present and lessons from it can be used to guide our future.

    With Indiana’s bicentennial coming up in 2016, many groups, including one here in Perry County, have begun planning several worthwhile events that will help us reflect on our state’s history.

    Naturally the Indiana Historical Society is getting involved in planning for the bicentennial, as well.

  • Work share program needed in Indiana

    Work share is a positive option for both companies and their employees in times of economic need. It is a voluntary program that allows employers to maintain skilled and stable workforces during temporary economic downturns. It allows employees to keep their jobs and benefits instead of facing unemployment and further financial uncertainty. And the state wins through a reduction in job losses.
