• Thanks for successful 4-H dinner, auction

    The Perry County 4-H Council would like to thank all those who participated in the annual 4-H dinner and auction. This successful event would not be possible without the help of the community.

  • Riverview Energy will be good for community

    I’m a member of the Boilermaker’s Union Local 374. I attended the public hearing on IDEM’s draft permit for Riverview Energy’s coal-to-diesel plant this week in Lincoln City. I was glad to see my neighbors and fellow townspeople coming together to discuss this important community issue.

  • Make your voices heard at Wednesday’s IDEM hearing on Riverview Energy

    In late October, the Indiana Department of Environmental Management released a draft air permit and stated “Riverview Energy’s coal-to-diesel plant proposed for Dale will not have a significant impact on air quality and overall health in the region.”

  • J-J dinner a big success

  • No Coal to Diesel group questions IDEM’s blanket statement

    On Wednesday, Dec. 5, at 5:30 p.m. CST, the Indiana Department of Environmental Management will conduct a hearing on the proposed Riverview Energy Coal to Diesel project for Dale. I have looked over the draft permit, and I am concerned about the blanket statement IDEM published in the local newspapers: “No significant impacts are expected from the proposed facility.”

    Honestly, how can this statement be made when IDEM does not address impacts from land use, noise, sound, light or visual pollution?

  • Thank a veteran

    Veterans Day. Take time to visit the graves of the ones who gave the ultimate sacrifice and help the disabled veterans. Thank the rest of the wonderful folks who have helped me and others.

    God bless all of them.
