  • LETTER: St. Paul community picnic was a big hit

    St. Paul Church Picnic 2012 is history, but God again blessed us with a beautiful, warm, breezy day in the park.

    My list of thank yous must start at the ministry center with Tammy and especially Mandy. You helped by guiding me in the right direction with all the rules and regulations. Sister Mary Emma was again my moral support and that meant a lot. Valeria and Vickie were helpful in the various planning stages.

  • LETTER: Ask volunteers to clean parks

    Reading the article about the Eagle Bluff Park at Cannelton was very sad to me. We have a beautiful restroom and shelterhouse.

    As a tourist on Indiana 66, would I want to stop for a visit if I knew about the trash or keep on going?

    I have been to all the locks on the Ohio River in Louisville District; our view here, the river, locks, power plant is the best overall.

    Try asking the good people from Perry County to volunteer an hour or two each week to help keep it clean.

  • LETTER: Thank you, JA volunteers and teachers

    I would like to thank the following volunteers for Junior Achievement during the spring semester at our schools: Sherri Flynn, Ivy Tech Community College; Tracey Coyle, American Colloid; Margie Zoglmann, Purdue Extension; Bob Ramsbottom; Ed Morey; Deana Hubert; Jennifer Scherzinger, Perry County Memorial Hospital; Ginger Peter; Eric Kehl, German American; Lesa Hedinger, US Bank; Jeff Rogers, ATTC Manufacturing; Tom McCart; Martha Thomas; Gretchen Lain, German American and Renate Warner, Purdue Extension.

  • LETTER: Two bands, one race, wonderful time

    The Tell City Marching Marksmen and the Perry Central Marching Commodores would like to take this opportunity to thank our community for their participation in the first annual Two Bands, One Goal 5-K Fun Run-Walk.

    It was a wonderful fundraising event in which our schools worked together to get our community involved in supporting our instrumental music programs.

  • LETTER: Perry County and the War of 1812

    This month we celebrate the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812. Remembering our ancestors who long ago had the courage and determination to fight for a cause they believed in: The United States of America. One might think the War of 1812 had little impact on our country because it is often overlooked for its significance in our history. But, in our area, in Perry County, they would be wrong.

  • LETTER: A few ideas for Tell City leaders to ponder

    I’ve got a few ideas that I would like to share with those who are interested.

    I think a pet parade would be a good idea within our annual Christmas parade in Tell City. Those wishing to participate could arrive with their dogs on leashes and take up the space of say, two floats. At the rear of the pet parade, dogs available for adoption from the animal shelter could be walked. This would allow those who wish to show off their pets to do so, and the shelter could possibly adopt out animals that would otherwise be euthanized; win-win.

  • LETTER: Women’s guild at EUCC grateful for help

    Sincere appreciation from the Women’s Guild of Evangelical United Church of Christ goes out to all who made our “Nacho Average” Mother-Daughter event on May 7 a success.

    Thanks to the men of our church and to Jose Flores, Chandler Lacy, Bryce Lain and Alex Ramsey, who took charge of the kitchen and dining-room duties. Also, we are especially thankful for the following merchants who made generous door-prize donations. Please thank them for their support as you shop at these businesses:

  • LETTER: Horse rescue group needs your support
