Today's Opinions

  • Scouts’ fish fry a success

    St. Paul Boy Scout Troop 192 would like to thank all those who supported the troop’s recent fish fry at the parish hall. The attendance was just overwhelming. Thank you, too, to those who purchased a ticket but were unable to come.

    This event could not have gone as well as it did without the adult volunteers who gave their time in preparation, brought in desserts and helped to serve food.

    The proceeds will help immensely with the boys’ camp this summer in Tennessee.

  • Give annexation petitioners their day in court

    Personally, I have not had a strong opinion on the annexation issue. I can see the arguments for and against, and while recognizing the high stakes and high passions involved, I am not confident in saying whose argument (if either) should take precedence.

  • City owes annexation opponents an apology

    My name is Terry L. Miles. I am a life long resident of Perry County. I was born in Tell City in November 1942. I went to Newman School and graduated from Tell City High School in 1961.

    After four years in the Navy, I returned home and found a job at GE. I was there until 1974, when our jobs went overseas. I found work at Commonwealth Aluminum in 1976.

    I retired after 26 years in 2004.

  • A disgrace on Hwy. 545

    Someone has a bad habit of dumping their trash into the Anderson River. I caught the scoundrel in the act on a Sunday morning a couple of weeks ago.

    The person, driving a silver car, stopped the vehicle on the bridge north of Troy and tossed not one, not two, but three bags of trash over the bridge railing. He or she had the bags ready because they went over the side of the bridge in less than 10 seconds.

  • Easing the TIF battle

    Recent concerns expressed by the Tell City-Troy Township School Board about tax-increment financing bear some merit, as late in the game as it may be. It’s  a complicated issue but there are paths to common ground if both parties work together.

  • Thanks for making supper, auction a great success

    Cornerstone Christian School just can’t thank the community, school parents and the Freewill Baptist Church enough for their generous support during our recent soup supper and silent auction fundraising event. 

    Thanks to the donations of supplies for the supper, items for the auction, money, time and a lot of hard work. It was a wonderful success.

    We asked for desserts and we got them. The amount provided by both the church and our school families was astounding!

  • Crappie: It’s what’s for supper

    There is nothing finer on a cold winter day than reaching into the freezer and pulling out a bag of crappie filets to fry for dinner.

    Well, there is one thing better; if despite the cold and some ice you have been lucky enough to catch fresh crappie from a lake with open water.

    There are many tasty fish, but crappie is at or near the top of my list, and it seems they taste even better when prepared on a day unfit for catching fresh ones. Those caught earlier and carefully frozen will do just fine.

  • The missing half of Congress’ job

    Every now and then, I’m asked if I miss serving in Congress. My stock answer is that no, I don’t really miss it, but there are definitely times when I’d like to jump right into a policy debate or be in a position to call congressional hearings.

    This is one of those times.
