  • TC pep rally celebrated student successes

    The Tell City Junior-Senior High School Renaissance Class recently held their annual academic pep rally. The class recognized over 250 students for their achievements. This event would not have been possible without the help of the many contributing organizations and individuals.

  • Schools’ summer lunch programs, full-meal deal

    Attention parents, kids and caregivers: starting next week, local schools will kick off summer meal programs. 

    The closing days of the school year are always an exciting time for kids as they prepare for summer fun. But for many, the break can be hectic as it also comes with a lot of activities, running from here to there and leaving little time to prepare home-cooked meals.

  • Savor summer while it’s here

    A long time ago, when my summers arrived without a job, mortgage or other real-world responsibilities, the summer months seemed to be heaven-sent. There were, admittedly, farm chores to shoulder, hay to haul and a lawn to mow, but those were minor interruptions in what seemed to be an endless string of carefree days and weeks.

    I sorely miss the summers of old.

  • Many supporters made after-prom event a success

    The Tell City After Prom Committee would like to thank the following individuals and businesses for their generous contributions to the 2015 Tell City High School After Prom.

  • VFW members grateful for support of Buddy Poppy sales

    Members of The Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2939 and ladies and men’s auxiliaries wish to thank the Perry County community for supporting the 2015 Buddy Poppy program.

    The money received remains in our community to benefit disabled and in-need veterans and widows of deceased veterans in Perry County.

    Also, I’d like to thank the Perry County News for advertising our events and Noble’s IGA and Wal-Mart stores for allowing us to distribute our Buddy Poppies in front of their stores.

  • Poppies honor fallen veterans

     “And now the Torch and Poppy Red, we wear in honor of our dead. Fear not that ye have died for naught; We’ll teach the lesson that ye wrought in Flanders Fields.”

     

    From Moina Michael’s poem “We Shall Keep the Faith”

    The red poppy is the American Legion official memorial flower. It reminds us of our fallen heroes while supporting our living veterans. Buy a poppy.

    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!
