Today's Opinions

  • Friends helped couple recover from fire

    We would like to thank the Tell City Fire Department, ambulance and Red Cross for their help during and after the fire we had in October.

    Thanks to everyone who gave before and after Christmas and the Daughters of Isabella for the gift cards. Everything was very much appreciated.

    It’s very hard to get things done without insurance.

  • DAR thanks volunteers, will welcome more

    Members of the Lafayette Spring Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution have been working hard on their veterans project over the past several months. It is a very large undertaking for our small chapter and any help we receive is greatly appreciated.

  • For the media, traditional values still matter

    I have been involved in politics and policy-making for more than 50 years, and as you can imagine I hold strong feelings about reporters and the media. They’re not what you might think, however.

  • We enforce the laws to save lives

    If there is one thing I could urge all motorists – drivers, passengers, front seat, back seat, all ages – to do every time you get in a vehicle, it’s buckle up.

    It is the single-most effective way to avoid being killed in a crash. Would you ever ride a roller coaster without the harness down? Would you ever skydive without a parachute? When you ride in a motor vehicle without a seat belt, you are taking a huge risk. One you can’t afford.

  • Small towns still matter

    In slightly over a year, Indiana will celebrate its bicentennial with fireworks, parades and plenty of speeches in small towns across the state that are quickly emptying and nearly forgotten as a generation or two rushes to fill up larger cities and their adjacent suburbs.

  • Let’s remember the victims of sexual assault

    April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, a time to raise public awareness about sexual assault and educate communities on how to prevent it. Sexual assault is a major public-health, human- rights and social-justice issue. It ranges from verbal sexual harassment to unwanted sexual contact. Every 107 seconds, an American is sexually assaulted. There is an average of 293,000 victims aged 12 or older each year.

  • Do you need a simple photo?

    This Saturday, April 18, is the Great Day of Service. Sponsored by several local church congregations, the project was the idea of Pastor Dan Hopkins of First Baptist Church in Tell City.

    A story on today’s front page lists some of the specific activities and services planned. One of them will be provided by the Perry County News and I’d like to share a few ideas I have about what we are doing.

  • Our View: City council should tread lightly on RV owners

    Is it OK for campers, boats, motor coaches and trailers to be parked on Tell City’s streets? Should they be allowed to be parked there year-round or would seasonal restrictions help ease concerns that those vehicles and trailers parked in residential areas are eyesores, clutter up neighborhoods and perhaps even lower property values?

    The Tell City Common Council could move in one of several different directions this year as they sift through the comments made last Monday during a meeting dominated by discussion on proposed parking regulations on RVs, trailers, etc.
