Today's Opinions

  • LETTER: This little piggy calls Dauby Lane home now

    I’ve seen a lot of things in the years that I have lived on Dauby Lane. We’ve got skunks and cats, runners and wannabe Daytona 500 drivers who roar up and down all night.

    All in all, it’s a pretty good mix; nothing really out of the ordinary for a semi-country road. That has changed in the past week though. A few days ago my wife spotted a feral pig.

  • LETTER: Helping United Way helps all of us

    As co-chair of the 2013 United Way of Perry County annual drive, I am very proud of our community and the willingness to make things happen. I feel people care and strive in helping make our county a better place to live.

    It is an honor and privilege to be co-chair on this special, commemorative anniversary of 40 years (strong) with United Way!

  • COLUMN: Generation Gap: Father Tom

    By THOMAS SIMPSON
    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.

    The interviews are of people one or two generations older than students.

  • COLUMN: Seeds that stick

    By VINCE LUECKE
    Editor

    A quick trip into a corn field last week turned into a sticky situation I’ve yet to extricate myself from. It was more annoying and embarrassing than anything but it proves once again Mother Nature’s amazing abilities.

  • EDITORIAL: County must step up to animal-control issue

    We are sad to see the latest efforts to bring real animal control to Perry County dismissed in recent acts by the county commissioners and council.

    As we reported Sept. 23, County Commissioner Tom Hauser said during a Sept. 3 meeting he didn’t remember the county’s animal welfare, control and education board asking for $40,000 to pay an officer to perform animal-control duties.

  • COLUMN: We should all say ‘no more’ to domestic violence

    By LAURA BERRY
    Guest Columnist

    During a recent 12-month period, 58 people died through  acts of domestic violence in Indiana. And just a few weeks ago an abuser in Indianapolis shot and killed a police officer whose brave actions saved the life of the abuser’s girlfriend and her 10-month-old child.

  • LETTER: Author donating books to Tell City Library

    I have two books I wish to donate to the Genealogy Department of the Tell City branch of the Perry County Public Library.

    The first one is my doctoral dissertation completed at Indiana University in 1975. Its title is “The Attitudes of Indiana Legislators and Lobbyist Toward Postsecondary Education in Indiana.”

    The significance of this study rests on measuring the attitudes of 294 registered lobbyists, 50 senators and 100 representatives toward postsecondary education in the state when there were a number of variables undergoing dynamic change.

  • LETTER: Religions should not impose will on others

    I’m writing a letter in response to seeing a young restaurant worker being taken to task for having a tattoo by some people who evidently had just been to church, at least they said they had.

    In all seriousness they said her body was God’s temple and she was committing a sin by having a tattoo, even though no one in their right mind would find this tattoo offensive.
