  • Generation Gap: Raymond Mendoza

    CORRIE KIMBRIL
    GUEST COLUMNIST

    Editor’s Note: The Perry County News is publishing a series of interviews conducted by eighth-graders in Joyce Stath’s English class at Tell City Junior-Senior High School.

    In response to the Perry County News’ Nov. 18 editorial “Gay-marriage ban will
    place state on wrong path,” I’d like to voice a different opinion.

  • Community should rally to keep Ivy Tech in Tell City

    We frequently boast the achievements of many of our community members in these pages. One student makes the spring dean’s list at Ivy Tech, another is on the president’s list and yet another graduates. Each is a human stretching toward his or her potential and a tribute to the value our community places on growth.

    For many people, going to college isn’t much more than a continuation of high school. For some, however, it’s a struggle that can be overcome with the help of available, affordable classes.

    I am writing this to the attention of anyone who listens, who reads. I just saw a beautiful slideshow of the changing trees throughout our United States; in the background softly played the glorious song “God Bless America.”

    “Oh beautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain, for purple mountains majesties, above the fruited plain. “America, America God shed his Grace on thee, and crown thy good with brotherhood, from sea to shining sea.”

  • COLUMN: Editorial on Common Core State Standards was light on facts

    It is time for a revolution in American education.  Schools are no longer responsible for only teaching children reading, writing and arithmetic.  We must now teach children to think deeply and critically about all of the information that comes so easily to them through multi-faceted media.
