  • Fall Festival a big success in Cannelton

    On Wednesday, Oct. 26, our annual fall festival enjoyed a tremendous turnout from students, staff and community supporters.

    Cannelton PTO would like to thank the following individuals and businesses for helping make this year’s annual fall festival a huge success. Along with the entire staff and student body of Cannelton City Schools, we would like to thank the following:

  • The benefits of tax-increment financing

    I have had several people of late ask me what TIF (tax-increment financing) does for our local school system.

    Guess what! TIF gives the Tell City-Troy Township School System $120,000 a year to replace taxes they don’t collect.

    The Perry County Redevelopment Commission voted about two years ago to give the Tell City-Troy Township School Corp.  $120,000 a year until the year 2024.

  • A dirty kid? Yes, I was

    I grew up ankle-deep in hog manure. Well, I had boots on, but I got plenty of pig and cow poo on me and when I had to clean out the chicken house, I breathed in my share of dried chicken poo, too.

    Other than obesity (which genes and my overactive appetite are to blame) I’m healthy and don’t have allergies or asthma. So are my siblings and as I’ve thought about it the past couple of weeks, so are most of the one-time farm kids I know.

  • A little post-election decorum, please

    Now that the election is over and the dust of arguably the most contentious presidential race in our history has finally settled, revealing a clear and decisive winner, everyone should just calm down.

    There have been thousands of protesters rioting in cities across the country who decry Hillary Clinton’s defeat at the hands of now President-elect Trump.

  • United Way Youth Day of Caring another success

    United Way of Perry County would like to take this opportunity to thank the youth, youth group leaders, and various businesses and agencies of the community for taking part in this year’s successful “Youth Day of Caring” on Sunday, Nov 6.

    Youth groups joined forces to paint, wash windows, rake, clean, weed, clean out landscaping, move boxes and clear trails at locations across the county.  The free labor provided by our volunteers saved our local non-profits many maintenance dollars and numerous hours of valuable time.

  • Thank you, United Way for the support

    United Way of Perry County is an optimistic beacon in our community, seeing our children as our future and taking a visionary approach to community growth.

    This attitude led United Way of Perry County to support Perry Central Robotics, and we extend our sincere thanks to the organization and the many donors who make the work of United Way of Perry County possible.

    Perry Central is striving to provide futuristic experiences for our students, understanding that the future is here.
