Today's Opinions

  • Where were you that day?

    Lloyd Arnold

    State Rep. District 74

     

    Sitting in a classroom? Starting the work day at a factory, school, farm or business? On the morning commute to work? Each of us have a distinct memory of that September morning 15 years ago. That vivid memory creeps into our minds each year around this time.

    Our lives were forever changed and it’s important we remember what America lost on Sept. 11, 2001. We can also learn lessons about service, sacrifice and faith, which stay with us for years to come.

  • Elect leaders committed to working people

    This Labor Day, we recognize the millions of people across the country who go to work every day to take care of our families.

    We work to put food on the table, to put ourselves through school, to pay for the dance lessons and the baseball league.

    Our hard work allows our economy to thrive and our work is what makes America great.

    Working people aren’t waiting for an invitation to the table.

    We are driving the debate about the issues that matter to us. We are making sure our voices are heard from coast-to-coast

  • Quilts stitched by volunteers with love

    Tell City Compassionate Quilters is celebrating giving away more than 100 quilts. The quilters began in February 2015 with the desire to give women the opportunity for fellowship and a way to give back to others.

  • Take part in bicentennial torch’s visit on Friday

    The much anticipated Bicentennial Torch Relay will reach Perry County this Friday, and with it will highlight much of what is great about our community. Respected citizens from nearly every community will help cast a statewide eye on what we have to offer as they carry the torch.

    Much like the Olympic procession, the local parade of relayers chronicles what makes us unique as well as promoting togetherness. The Torch Relay was incorporated into the state’s yearlong birthday party to inspire and unify Hoosiers. And in Perry County, our neighborly ties run deep.

    June 17, 2015, started much like any other Wednesday. I awoke early and went to St. Isidore Church where I met with the other members of our prayer group. While awaiting their arrival, I stood outside the church and marveled at the morning sky and the promise of the day to come. Like most of my days off from my job, my mind focused on the many tasks that lay ahead of me that day. Little did I know of the events that would transpire later that afternoon.

  • United Way deserves the community’s support

    United Way of Perry County’s yearly campaign is in full swing and once again your help is needed to make it a success. This year’s campaign hopes to raise $130,000 for support groups that provide important services in our community, but the Indiana Association of United Ways is offering to match new and increased gifts. That means up to another $20,000 to help build our community and make Perry County a better place to live and work.
