Today's Opinions

  • Renaissance yard sale had many supporters

    The Tell City Jr.-Sr. High School Renaissance Class’ annual yard sale Saturday March 7, was a immense success this year.

  • Someone needs to take responsibility for cleaning snow from Cannelton intersection

    I’m writing in an effort to find out who is responsible for clearing snow at the end of Old Indiana 237 and Indiana 66 in Cannelton.

    It has not been cleaned at all the last two years. I called the county garage and they took my name and phone number, but no one called.

    I called the mayor’s office and did the same, left a number and no one called back. It’s a shame to see that we can’t get an answer to a very dangerous section of road to get cleaned.

    We almost got hit twice trying just to go to town.

  • An open letter to Councilman Gerald Yackle

    Mr. Yackle, The March 9 issue of Perry County News had a headline article discussing the proposed parking regulation for boats, trailers, motor homes and other recreational vehicles. Your position is the “government should stay out of it.”

    This is a shallow statement for a city councilman to make.

    Are you aware, cities throughout the country enact zoning restrictions specially to prevent these vehicles from parking on city streets and properties for good reasons: to protect the overall appearance of the communities.

    I saw the following story  posted by the Martinsville Reporter-Times on the Hoosier State Press Association’s Information Network last week. Staff writer Scott Roberts interviewed members of a  group preparing to spend a weekend this spring searching the Morgan-Monroe Forest for signs of Bigfoot.

  • Bill requiring cursive writing should pass

    A bill requiring cursive writing to be taught in Indiana schools passed the state Senate 39-9 in late January but probably won’t even receive a hearing in the full House.

    We think that is a mistake and this bill should become law.

    Sen. Jean Leising, R-Oldenburg, has introduced the bill three years in a row and gotten strong support for it in the Senate every year. Then, every year, it has been assigned to the Education Committee in the House.

  • Health fair was a hit

    We would like to thank students, staff and community members who attended the health fair Feb. 27 at Tell City Junior-Senior High School.
