Today's Opinions

  • Kleeman stepping down from school board

     

    I have had the honor and privilege to serve on the Tell City-Troy Township School Board for 11 years, first being appointed by the Troy Township trustee, then appointed by the Tell City Council, and lastly elected by the voters of the school corporation district in 2012.

    My service on the board has been driven by a desire and passion to help our community provide a system of quality education for our children.

  • Plenty of deserving movies vie for Oscar gold

    Eric Harris

    Film Review

     

    At this point, it doesn’t make sense to refer to this annual article as my Oscar “predictions.” I’ve been so far off the mark in recent years that I might as well flip a coin (and for some of these, I just might). It is more apt to simply call this my Academy Awards article. I’ll still make predictions, but my focus will be more on my personal favorites in each category instead of who I think will win.

  • Honoring soldiers of the Korean War

    State Rep. Ron Bacon

    District 75

     

    During the fast-paced legislative session, I believe it is important to dedicate time to recognizing our veterans who have sacrificed so much to protect our country.

    That’s why I am sponsoring Senate Concurrent Resolution 3, urging the Indiana Department of Transportation to place a memorial sign where the 38th parallel crosses Interstate 69 just north of Morgan Avenue in Evansville.

  • Winter is prime time for hiking

    Winter doesn’t have to be a time for the winter “blahs”, and a “can’t wait for spring attitude.” The groundhog has done his thing, but no matter what, we still have some winter weather left.

    It probably isn’t the favorite season of most, but winter isn’t a bad thing. It’s a great time for hiking, walking in the woods, trying your luck at walleye or sauger fishing, or just getting outdoors.

  • Scouts’ fish fry a success

    St. Paul Boy Scout Troop 192 would like to thank all those who supported the troop’s recent fish fry at the parish hall. The attendance was just overwhelming. Thank you, too, to those who purchased a ticket but were unable to come.

    This event could not have gone as well as it did without the adult volunteers who gave their time in preparation, brought in desserts and helped to serve food.

    The proceeds will help immensely with the boys’ camp this summer in Tennessee.

  • Give annexation petitioners their day in court

    Personally, I have not had a strong opinion on the annexation issue. I can see the arguments for and against, and while recognizing the high stakes and high passions involved, I am not confident in saying whose argument (if either) should take precedence.

  • City owes annexation opponents an apology

    My name is Terry L. Miles. I am a life long resident of Perry County. I was born in Tell City in November 1942. I went to Newman School and graduated from Tell City High School in 1961.

    After four years in the Navy, I returned home and found a job at GE. I was there until 1974, when our jobs went overseas. I found work at Commonwealth Aluminum in 1976.

    I retired after 26 years in 2004.

  • A disgrace on Hwy. 545

    Someone has a bad habit of dumping their trash into the Anderson River. I caught the scoundrel in the act on a Sunday morning a couple of weeks ago.

    The person, driving a silver car, stopped the vehicle on the bridge north of Troy and tossed not one, not two, but three bags of trash over the bridge railing. He or she had the bags ready because they went over the side of the bridge in less than 10 seconds.
