  • COLUMN: Learn more about Red Cross

    My name is Nikki Hawkins and I am a new member of the Red Cross team. I’m so excited to be a part of such an wonderful organization. Llynn Enmen, who has been a fantastic representative of the Red Cross for years, and I have had multiple discussions over the disaster preparedness in Perry County and we have decided that the best thing to do is to bring everyone together to have a discussion about where we want to go and how we are going to get there.

  • COLUMN: Things we carry with us

    By VINCE LUECKE

    It’s been a long time since I peeked in a woman’s purse though I suspect women carry a plethora of things in their handbags. It’s the same with men’s wallets. In fact we all carry things with us, in our purses, wallets, glove boxes – who keeps gloves in glove boxes any more? – pants pockets and backpacks.

  • EDITORIAL: Politics is about morals, too

    While many Republicans focused on defeating President Barack Obama in November hope their party’s raucous nominating process wraps up soon, others of us – of all party affiliations – are enjoying the spirited competition between the three main GOP contenders, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich.

  • EDITORIAL: Seventh Street’s future may be getting brighter

    Tell City’s Seventh Street will be in the spotlight at City Hall tonight as a special meeting introduces a proposal to build an event and visitors center.

    The project is nowhere near finalized but income from the sale of homes constructed under Tell City’s Neighborhood Stabilization Program grant would be used to help pay for the structure.

  • EDITORIAL: Try ordinances before condemning them to failure

    “Let’s try something, even if it’s wrong.”

    That apparent misguidance may have merit in two current situations in Perry County.

    In one, county-council members are attempting to undo a long process the county commissioners finished up in December. In the other, the mayor of Cannelton is suggesting an ordinance protecting renters be rescinded.

    Before the county commissioners did their part, others worked hard as members of a committee examining the county’s need for an animal-control ordinance.

  • LETTER: Komen not wavering from its mission to serve women

    With recent news about our organization, there has never been a greater need for clarity in our communications with the tri-state.

    Rest assured the controversy inspired by actions at the national office of Susan G. Komen has in no way impacted the Evansville Tri-State Affiliate’s dedication to our core mission in the 28 counties we serve in southern Indiana, southern Illinois and western Kentucky.
