  • Hoosiers and adoption

    During a month in which we celebrate Mother’s Day, families formed through adoption are more common in Indiana compared with other states.

    According to the National Council for Adoption, Indiana has the nation’s fourth highest rate of adoption per live births, the ninth highest rate of adoption per nonmarital births, and the eleventh highest rate of adoption per 100,000 adults.

  • Mother’s Day run-walk another big success

    We want to thank everyone who helped make the Run for Your Mother 5K Fun Run-walk on Mother’s Day such a huge success. 

    We had 239 people registered – from individuals to entire families, people of all ages were running and walking in honor of their moms. It was a wonderful day!

  • Hospital auxiliary appreciates VFW’s help

    Members of Perry County Memorial Hospital Auxiliary would like to thank the Winchell Vogel Post 2939 of the Veterans of Foreign Wars for the use of their facility for our yard sale during Dogwood Fest.

    We want to thank members of the community who also supported this fundraiser for our organization. We raised over $575 from the yard sale.

  • Sinning under the sun

    Portions of my face, especially the back of my neck and my ears, were peeling last week, the result of a careless few hours in the sun.

    I felt like quite the hypocrite since I regularly preach sun awareness and skin-cancer prevention,

    I applied sunscreen twice during my time under a hot May sun. But I sweat a lot and the protection melted during the day.

  • Take time to observe the spirit of Memorial Day

    Memorial Day is approaching and we hope Perry Countians will commit a portion of the upcoming long weekend to recalling the heroism of the men and women who gave their lives in service to our land.

    Unfortunately, Memorial Day risks being crowded out by so many other activities: graduations, vacations, even auto racing. We know the first summer holiday is a busy time for everyone, but we encourage individuals and families to honor fallen and living veterans.

  • As summer nears, some plants savor the shade

    It is strange, but true ... people often refer to shade as a problem.  How many times have you heard of people desperately searching for that one magic thing they can do to get grass to grow underneath a pin oak?

    Why can’t we just accept the fact that it just isn’t possible and move on to better things?

  • Did you buy a pool from a Siberia-area sale?

    I want to say a big thank you to everyone who came and supported my yard sale for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

    We had a oblong swimming pool for sale and someone bought it. Later I found one of the plugs and would like to get it to the person who bought it. Please call me at (812) 357-2400.  

    The yard sale was at 1980 State Road 62, Siberia or 3 1/2 miles east of St. Meinrad.  We are planning another yard sale for Oct. 2-4.  

    We hope you can help us again.  

  • TC lip-sync competition was oh, so cool

    The Tell City Junior-Senior High School Renaissance Leadership Class held its eighth annual lip sync competition April 18. The event was a huge success and the class would like to thank the many people who made this event happen.

    First of all, the class would like to thank all of the students and teachers who participated in the event. We would like to especially thank Nick Weyer, Josh Teague, Jennifer Chestnut, Blair Linn, Kelly Hollinden and Amy Hollinden for participating in teacher groups.
