    The Tell City Kiwanis Club would like to thank the many donors to the Kiwanis Christmas Basket Program this year. Your donations, totaling $15,736, helped make Christmas brighter for hundreds of families.

  • LETTER: Thanks for supporting the Humane Society

    The Humane Society of Perry County would like to thank all the people, businesses and veterinarians who make it possible to continue helping responsible animal owners in our county. If it were not for your generous donations, we could not continue with our projects of helping to spay and neuter Perry County animals. Also the ability to help provide dog houses or the straw giveaway in the fall would not be possible.

    Having newly joined the ranks of the septuagenarian crowd, I’m reminded of an oft-repeated phrase of a remarkable teacher from my long-ago days at Brescia College.

  • EDITORIAL: How well do you know your First Amendment?

    Much recent discussion has focused on the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

    While we appreciate spirited debate on any public issue, we would like to see Americans go back to Square 1; our collective knowledge of the First Amendment leaves much to be desired.

  • LETTER: Law-enforcement officers are our hometown heroes

    Our law-enforcement officers are the first line of defense against crime. They conduct themselves in a manner that supports, maintains and defends the Constitution of the state of Indiana and the United States. While performing their duties, they risk their own lives to save the lives of others.

    The law-enforcement officer faces difficult challenges every day.
