  • COLUMN: Facebook friends and drama

    By VINCE LUECKE

    I’m not the biggest user of Facebook. Far from it. I post photographs taken for the newspaper – and the occasional personal collection of pictures – and breaking news. Other staff and I also do that on The Perry County News’ Facebook page.

    In comparison, some people document their every move on Facebook, what restaurant they’re eating at, what movie they’re watching and, literally, when they’re doing the laundry on a Sunday night.

  • EDITORIAL: Financial literacy class needed and financially possible

    What caused the meltdown of the U.S. financial markets in 2008 that led to our country’s worst recession in decades?

    Risky moves by greedy financial institutions, inadequate government supervision of them, and misguided policies by President George W. Bush’s administration have all received shares of the blame.

    But most experts now say that a big reason for the meltdown was the financial illiteracy of a large portion of our population, especially young adults who were responsible for many mortgage defaults that contributed to the meltdown.

  • LETTER: Earth Day is every day for Hoosier farmers

    It has been estimated that one billion people around the globe, in some way, observed Earth Day Sunday (yesterday). This was the 42nd annual celebration of a day set aside specifically to reinforce the importance of environmental vigilance, veneration and responsibility.

    It may go largely unnoticed but there is a portion of our population that observes Earth Day 365 days a year.

    Chances are very good that you know at least one of them.

  • LETTER: How much will tapping reserves cost U.S.?

    I’d like to address some issues pertaining to Jim Adkins’ letter (“Obama’s energy whoppers point to failures”) published  April 16.

    Mr. Adkins brings up what appears to be huge reserves of oil in the U.S. However, has he bothered to check just what tapping all those reserves would cost?

  • COLUMN: Counties receive community asset inventory report card

    District 74 State Representative

    Most of us really don’t like to receive a grade score … unless we are assured an A or B.  That said, letter grades give us a strong indication of “where we stand.”
