  • COLUMN: Battling a smelly problem

    By VINCE LUECKE, Editor

    I live in the country so skunks aren’t a big problem for me. I see them as roadkill or sometimes catch their unmistakable odor on my hill in New Boston or on the farm.

    Several Tell City residents, however, have had real problems with skunks recently, part of an apparent population boom in the mammals.

  • EDITORIAL: Crackdown on license plates unnecessary

    As the Indiana 2012 legislative session starts to wrap up, our elected officials are putting final touches on bills that have passed and probably making plans for the next session; all things that you would expect them to be doing.

    There is something that is going on, however, that is raising a few eyebrows.

    Last week, it seemed the GOP decided they wanted to revive the topic of specialty groups’ license plates, an issue that died already in the legislative session this year. So what exactly is the issue?

  • LETTER: Groves, Elder hit the mark

    Just want to make a short statement. Hurrah for Dale Groves and Michael Elder. Loved your editorial comments.

  • LETTER: There’s more to business than right-to-work

    In a Feb. 27 letter, Jim Adkins again selectively uses info from The Center For Responsible Politics. I looked all over that Web site and couldn’t find what he was quoting in his letter, mainly that eight of the top 10 all-time contributors are labor unions or that they contributed anything like $925 million during the 2004 campaign. If it’s in there Mr. Adkins, please contact me and tell me where.

  • LETTER: County needs animal-control ordinance

    I am not a political person by nature. When I feel strongly about a subject, I will try to learn and support that issue. I feel very strongly about the animal-control ordinance. I feel it is good for the future of our county. We have so many unwanted and mistreated animals in Perry County and it is time to admit there is a problem and address this issue.

    We don’t all agree with the ordinance, but it is at least a starting point.

  • COLUMN: Help shape our city’s future

    By BARBARA EWING, Mayor of Tell City

    Greetings from the Tell City mayor’s office. Coach Paul Bryant once said, “No coach has ever won a game by what he knows, it’s what his players know that counts.”

    Within our community, I believe, as mayor, we have the people, the skills, the resources and the materials to create a positive change in Tell City! It is for this reason that Tell City is reaching out to its citizens and all citizens of Perry County for help in developing a comprehensive plan for the Tell City community.

  • COLUMN: And the surveys say ...

    By VINCE LUECKE, Editor

    Surveys conducted as part of Perry County’s Hometown Competitiveness Program turned up some interesting data about the challenges facing our community – as well as many of its strengths. A public presentation of findings by five committees was conducted Feb. 21 and we’ll share the details of the findings in a story soon.
