Today's Opinions

  • Teamwork always makes life so much better

    The Perry County News continues to an excellent job in covering various sports. Thanks to them.

    My time consists of helping disabled military veterans, working music for different occasions, producing a music CD and supporting the mighty tough Perry Central Commodores whenever I get a chance. Let’s continue that great winning tradition.   

    Thanks to those terrific Perry Central fans. Let’s continue to display good sportsmanship.

  • City should help resident cut off from home

    I am writing to comment on the (June 16) letter to the editor from my mother, Mary Hearst. She is very upset over all this and that is not good for a lady of 83 years. It worries me.

    It is true I have been talking to the street commissioner for some time about this culvert and the problem we were having with it. At first he had his workers put some blacktop on it but that really didn't do much.  But I guess it did appease us for a while.

  • Money down the drain

    Good heavens, George ,you’re drinking Jimmy’s coffee? It helps you think? It would help me think, too. I would think that I didn’t want anymore of Jimmy’s coffee. And what the heck are you doing with all of these napkins? It looks like you are calculating the national debt.

    Yes, I can guess what you are doing. That amount, $42.74, looks extremely familiar.

    A contractor not following the correct specifications for an interpretive panel under construction at Lincoln Ferry Park had to remove the structure this spring. It will be rebuilt later this year.

    Thus ends the mystery of the concrete and frame structure that was built in front of the park, located just across the Anderson River in Spencer County along Indiana 66. In a column last week, I wrote about the project and its sudden disappearance.

  • EDITORIAL: Care for vets must meet high expectations

    How America cares for its veterans is indicative of its values as a nation. We’re confident the vast majority of citizens agree that health care for military vets through the country’s network of Veterans Affairs hospitals should meet or exceed common-sense expectations.

    Unfortunately, what’s been discovered in recent weeks about the troubling wait times for new patients at VA hospitals reveals there is a disconnect between intent and reality.

  • VFW members grateful for support of Buddy Poppy sales

    Members of Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2939 and its ladies and mens auxiliaries wish to thank the Perry County community for supporting the 2014 Buddy Poppy program.

    The money received from this remains in our community to benefit disabled and in-need veterans and widows of deceased veterans in Perry County.

    Also, I'd like to thank the Perry County News for advertising and Nobles IGA, Wal-Mart and Cash Savers Foods for allowing us to distribute our buddy poppies in front of their stores.

  • What was being built at Lincoln Ferry Park?

    It’s not that uncommon to get stumped on a story but true mysteries are pretty rare for me. After a couple of weeks of asking questions, I still don’t know what was being built at the Lincoln Ferry Park near Troy and was subsequently disassembled. Perhaps someone knows what was being constructed and the individual or group behind it.

  • City taxes don’t deliver much

    A lot is being said about the proposed and adopted annexation by the city officials, and I felt compelled to share my experiences of late as to what has happened to me.
