  • LETTER: Perry County’s veterans groups continue long tradition of honoring those who served

    The rendering of military funeral honors is a way to show the nation’s deep gratitude to those who, in times of war and peace, have faithfully defended our country. This ceremonial paying of respect is the final demonstration a grateful nation can provide to the veterans’ family and friends. Military funeral honors are a long-standing tradition within the armed forces. This tradition is carried on by those who become members of our veteran organizations such as the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the American Legion.

  • LETTER: Interested in learning about TC Kiwanis?

    The Tell City Kiwanis has been an active organization in our community since May 1927. The organization’s focus is to serve children.

  • LETTER: Nation’s Constitution serves us every day

    Sept. 17-23 begins the national celebration of Constitution Week. It is a weeklong celebration of remembering the most important document in our nation, a document that allows us to maintain our liberties and freedom.

    We often take for granted the simple things in our lives, never really giving much thought of our freedom of free speech, freedom to choose our own religion, our right to bear arms, or to assemble and petition.

    We are the greatest country in the world for many reasons but our Constitution allows us to be.

    In a highly competitive job market, relevant work experience can make all the difference between obtaining a job or having to continue searching. Not every high-school graduate pursues a college degree, which is fine.

  • EDITORIAL: Indiana Education Board seems more concerned about politics than education

    There’s been a lot of news lately about the state’s education board and past state schools chief Tony Bennett. We’ve addressed some of these issues in this section before and we imagine other Hoosiers are as frustrated as we are. It’s come to the point where it appears the state education board, department and state politicians are more concerned about political strategy than the education of our children.

  • LETTER: Zoning changes will provide boost for new business

    Editor’s Note: This letter makes reference to a December 2012 story on the Tell City zoning board’s rezoning of land for storage units along Dauby Lane.

    I understand that residents are concerned about the unsightly or unkept units, but I also understand the need for the secured storage units. As residents of a small community, we should do whatever we can to support small businesses that provide a service. The success of their business depends on us and their ability to provide their service, in this case, a clean and secure unit for rent.
