• Riverview’s apologists are the foolish ones

    The recent letter by Daryl Hensley, “Don’t be fooled by health risk claims,” is wrong on nearly every count.

  • Thank you, firefighters

    I want to thank our fire department and all who helped to contain the  recent tragic fire on 15th Street.

    Without their skills, and all the homes so close together, the entire block could have been destroyed. Thank you again.

  • Dale has done its homework

    I understand some people’s concerns about the coal-to-diesel plant. It is the responsibility of the Dale Town Council to listen to both sides. We have to rely on IDEM’s report. If they approve the permit, by law that is what we have to go by. We do not discriminate against any company. We welcome any legal business.

  • Too much power given to executive branch

    Leash-free dog park would offer benefits

    This is a proposal for a leash free dog park on a wedge-shaped piece of city property between the flood wall and Sixth Street, starting at Humboldt Street and proceeding north.

    It has become an urgent matter since the vacant land north and south of the River Pointe apartments has been slated for new development; therefore we need a special secure place for our dogs to exercise.

  • PCDC has money; why is county poor?

    I find it a little odd that the Perry County Development Corp. has plenty of money to fund their projects while county workers go without pay raises, county roads go without stone and culverts, budgets get cut to “bare bones,” county taxes get raised and we are all told how little money there is to go around.

  • Kiwanis Club still seeking donations for food basket program

    The Tell City Kiwanis Club would like to thank the many generous donors who helped make the Kiwanis Christmas Basket Program possible this year. 

    Unfortunately, we did not meet our fundraising goal so we are still seeking end-of-the-year donations to help us cover the expenses of the program that provided 328 food baskets to the community this year as well as $1,000 to Perry Central to help provide food for families from their school.

  • Thanks to all who footed a path in Turkey Trot

    Thank you, Perry County, for making the 2018 Turkey Trot a huge success! This has become such a heart-warming community tradition. It is awesome to see families come together to kick off the holiday in a healthy way!

    Because of you, several local families in need will be blessed this season! Our appreciation is extended to the hundreds of participants who signed up, showed up, moved your feet, brought your families, and donated!

  • Annual PCMH Holiday Bazaar deemed a success

    On Nov. 8, 2018, the Perry County Memorial Hospital Auxiliary hosted its holiday bazaar at the hospital. The bazaar was another successful event, which raised over $8,800.  This money will be used to fund various projects at our local hospital.

    Special thanks to several people who donated items.

  • Renaissance Leadership Class thankful for community support

    Editor’s Note: The News mistakenly published an incomplete listing in last week’s issue.


    The Renaissance Leadership Class of Tell City Junior-Senior High School would like to thank the community for your support of our spaghetti dinner and silent auction held on Friday, Dec. 7, in the Red Apple Inn.

    Profits from the event will be used to recognize our students for their academic achievement and improvement, their service to others, and their attendance. 

  • Horse Rescue South thankful for Domtar, Steelworkers Local 1261

    Horse Rescue South would like to take this opportunity to thank Domtar and Steelworkers Local 1261 for their generous donation.

    Domtar has been very kind to our organization. Without donations of this kind, our rescue could not operate. We truly appreciate your kindness. This will help provide feed and medical care for our rescue horses over the upcoming winter months.
