  • Our View: Don’t dump your junk. Stop littering!

    It’s a message often repeated but one that has apparently yet to sink in the minds of the litterbugs of Perry County whose ugly handiwork can be seen alongside highways and county roads.

  • Struggling with springerles

    Although I have the physique of a healthy eater, I’m no baker and the only cookies I’ve made as of late have come from two cubes of dough purchased from my school-age nieces and nephews. The cookies were OK but nowhere near as good as Mom’s made-from-scratch treats.

    As Christmas rolls around each year, it’s not visions of sugar plums that dance in my head, but springerles, buckeyes, bonbons and iced butter cookies.

  • Hess family grateful for community support, donations

    Jason Hess and his parents Don and Lynda Hess would like to thank everyone who donated to the money cans at these local stores: Marcy’s, Guillaume’s Store, Smackwater, Derby General, Derby Market, Smokin Pit and Tell Street Café.

    There are a lot of people to thank from local churches to Casper Saw Mill for donating wood.

    Thanks to all of the great people who stopped by the IGA bake sell we had. Don’t get me started on the wonderful people at Masterbrand.

  • K of C Auxiliary says thanks

    Thanks to the generous support of many area businesses and individuals, the Ladies Auxiliary of the Knight’s Club hosted an incredibly successful silent auction. We cannot adequately express our appreciation.

    It is wonderful to see so many people/businesses join together in an effort to raise money that will help support our projects with the goal of putting back into the community the funds we raise. The following is a list of all who supported this project. Thank you so much!

  • Scouts’ candy helps troops

    St. Paul Boy Scout Troop 192 would like to thank the community for its donations of leftover Halloween candy.

    To the schools and businesses that participated, thank you for allowing boxes to be put at your locations as drop-off points.

    The boys mailed out 20 large boxes of candy and condiments (148 pounds) to our servicemen and women.

    We hope to continue this service again next year.

    Thanks again.

  • Where’s the Hoosier beef? Grass-fed vs. grain-fed

    State Rep. Ron Bacon

    Editor’s Note: Perry County is home to a number of producers who produce grass-fed beef as well as consumers who enjoy it.

     

    Indiana’s agriculture industry helps fuel the state’s economy and touches the life of every Hoosier. A major component of that industry includes the production of beef. Our state has around 870,000 head of cattle, more than 190,000 of which are beef cows.

  • A proud American veteran

    As a former teacher and handicapped military veteran, I was surprised by four of my former fine Perry Central students, namely Ellen (Jones) Haire, Susan (Bryant) Ubelhor, Donna (Hedinger) Schipp and Dorothy (Schaefer) Gelarden at Denny’s Restaurant in Jasper on Veterans Day.

    They provided a fine meal and a Denny’s gift certificate. I consider it an early Christmas gift.

    What a wonderful relationship between former students and their former teacher.

    God bless them. Yes, I taught many wonderful students at Perry Central. Thank you again.

  • Taste and Share event a hit

    The Catholic Charities Tell City Advisory Board along with Agency Director Joan Hess would like to thank the community for supporting our recent Taste and Share event.

    This second annual fundraiser was successful and money raised will enable us to offer support to many needy neighbors.

    Special thanks are given to Mayor Jim Adams and the city of Tell City for the use of the Schergens Center, Betty Cash, Teresa Dauby and Cinderella’s, James Rash, Danny Bolin, Leo Gronquist, and everyone who attended, bought a ticket, or donated to our programs.
