Today's Opinions

  • 911 callers, stick to the facts

    With much banter about protocols for police officers, citizens can do a lot to help reduce stressors. A main point would come from accurate reporting of possible dangerous or criminal activity.

    For example, last Monday, July 18, an autistic client of an assisted living facility in North Miami, Fla. escaped the safety of the facility. An employee, Charles Kinsey, pursued the 23-year-old client in an attempt to return him to the home. 911 was called, and dispatchers were told a man was in the middle of the street with a gun, threatening suicide.

  • Parish closings would hurt people, communities

    News that some of Perry County’s Catholic parishes may eventually close under a consolidation plan under consideration by the Archdiocese of Indianapolis came as a shock to many over the past week.

  • Clinton the wrong choice for several reasons

    I would like to respond to the guest columnist of July 14, because I found several areas that were presented that were taken out of context, clearly, to misrepresent what the original author had said.

    The article was to address two basic concerns: 1) the contempt directed at Hillary Clinton; and 2) the reasons that a Trump election would be a mistake of epic proportions.

  • Thanks for support to historic Shubael village

    A big thumbs up to Mulzer Crushed Stone Co. of Tell City.

    Shubael Little Pioneer Village is a nonprofit 501C 3 organization dedicated to historical preservation and education.  We host an open house annually and invite the public to experience life as our ancestors did in the mid to late 1850’s. We also host student groups from surrounding areas.

    Secluded in the middle of a vast clearing in Grant County, Ky., stands a rather conspicuously majestic structure. The Ark Encounter was built to be a historically and Biblically accurate replica of Noah’s Ark, in case you’ve missed the headlines regarding the financial aspects and hiring practices of the project.

    On June 30, The Perry County News printed a guest column titled “Give Historical Credit Where Credit Is Due.”

    The subject of this article involves the 1825 shipwreck of the steamboat Mechanic in which Revolutionary War Hero General Marquis de Lafayette was a passenger. Mr. Saalman, the author, implies that Lafayette never traveled to the Perry County side of the river during the time he was stranded because of the wreck.

  • Hillary Clinton’s legacy of failure

    Having read Brett Sanders’ letter of the last week, I have to conclude that his rather tenuous tether to reality is coming unwound. His initial premise, that Hillary Clinton is honest, ruins his shot at credibility for the rest of the piece. It is as if he is living in an alternative universe where up is down and bad is good. We are warned of this in the Bible where the book of Isaiah says, “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil.”
