Today's Opinions

  • Assessor: Do what’s right for community

    We are as baffled as Randy Cole said he is that he’s having to fight to get a tax exemption for the former Tell City Junior High School.

    As we reported April 28, Cole appeared before the county council four days earlier to seek their support. There was nothing they could do for him, they said.

  • LETTER - 4-H program benefits from pork-chop dinner, auction

    The first of what organizers hope will be an annual Perry County 4-H Council Pork Chop and Auction Fundraiser April 5 at the Perry County 4-H Fairgrounds was a huge success.

    The Perry County 4-H Council would like to thank the following businesses and monetary donors for their support:

  • LETTER - Community made TC schools’ career fair a success

    On April 11, Tell City Junior-Senior High School students in grades 7-12 were given the opportunity to participate in a career fair. Students each spent an hour engaging with local business leaders, gaining valuable knowledge on education, training and employment opportunities in various career pathways.

    We would like to express our appreciation to the following businesses for making the career fair a success for our students:

    Guest Columnist

    Editor’s Note: The Perry County News is publishing a series of interviews conducted by eighth-graders in Joyce Stath’s English class at Tell City Junior-Senior High School. The interviews are of people one or two generations older than students. Today’s column is by Mackenzie Fulton, who profiles her grandmother, Debbie Schraner.

    After several weeks of debating on who I should interview, I chose my grandma, Debbie Schraner.

  • COLUMN - Be willing to stir things up

    By VINCE LUECKE
    Editor

    I can vividly remember the first and only letter to the editor I ever penned. I was in seventh grade and decided to point a scolding finger at school officials in Spencer County.

    For whatever reason, Heritage Hills, then less than 10 years old, had a roof in very poor condition that leaked every time it rained. Water poured through the flat roof, staining ceiling tiles and carpet. On rainy days, there were trash cans scattered along the school’s hallways and classrooms.

  • EDITORIAL - Tell City’s annexation efforts exhibit shortcomings

    Few property annexations, especially of the size Tell City has tackled over the past year, are accomplished easily or without considerable debate. That has certainly been the case this spring as the Tell City Common Council debated, sought public input and adopted an ordinance adding 1,776 acres into the community.

    As we reported in Thursday’s issue, a group of landowners opposed to their properties being annexed is in the first stages of filing a remonstrance.
