Today's Opinions

  • Know what’s going on in your community; read the newspaper regularly

    Being informed about the community we live in should be a goal of everyone. While we may be biased, we believe the best way to do that is to read the newspaper currently in your hands.

    While all of us have a myriad of opportunities to stay informed – television, online, radio and social media – no other mode of news compares to your community newspaper in its ability to share relevant and local news, features and sports.

    Next Tuesday, Nov. 3, will be one of those exciting days sure to bring extra work to the newsroom but guaranteed to be one to remember. Of course, it’s Election Day and while many folks who live where elections are taking place already know who they will vote for, others have yet to decide.

  • Risse is right choice for city council

    I write on behalf of my friend Sean Risse. I have known Sean since coaching him as a youth in basketball.

    My current civil duties require me to make tough decisions and I can’t stress the importance of these decisions. Sean, with your support, can step into a similar role and I have confidence he too can make the tough decisions that will come.

    Now through Nov. 16, Indiana residents and businesses that owe past-due taxes to the Indiana Department of Revenue may be eligible to take advantage of Tax Amnesty 2015, a limited-time opportunity during which taxpayers can pay their overdue taxes free of penalties, interest and collection fees.

  • Learning academy thankful for support

    The Perry County Learning Academy believes it is never too late to learn. That is why the Learning Academy is ready to serve high school students and adults who have gotten off track for completing their high school diploma or equivalent. 

    The Perry County Learning Academy is extremely grateful to United Way of Perry County for its support of PCLA efforts to increase the educational attainment in our community.

  • United Way strengthening local families

    I believe in the advocacy, efficiency and accountability of United Way of Perry County.

    That is why, I am very grateful to be a recipient of United Way of Perry County’s eCommunity Investment Funding. 

    I often locate or identify essential resources for the families, in which we serve as a school district.

    I can confidently recommend any program that has been ‘deemed’ worthy of partnering with United Way of Perry County.

  • Thanks for all of the fall festival help

    We want to thank everyone who helped make the Fall Festival at Rome successful. The News gave us advertising ahead of the event, Nobles worked with us purchasing the food, and to the visitors who came to eat or listen to the band or buy items from the country store. We enjoyed having the House Kat Trio provide music for the event. We also appreciate the write up in the News last week following the festival.

  • What a grand day it was in Bristow Oct. 11

    A special thank you to God for such a beautiful day for the Bristow car show Oct. 11.

    If you were not there, you missed a nice day with friends from far and near who came back to claim their roots and those who live close by.

    The town was clean and looked really nice. It took a lot of time and labor to make things happen.

    The food was great and music and every other thing seemed to fall in place. And there were so many beautiful cars, trucks and other classic vehicles that came from everywhere.
