  • Alzheimer’s fight needs bold support

    It is time we change our thinking on Alzheimer’s disease. Too often,  Alzheimer’s is treated as an aging issue, ignoring the public health consequences of a disease that someone in the U.S. develops every 66 seconds.  

    And with two-thirds of its annual costs being borne by Medicare and Medicaid, it is one that demands more attention from our government.

  • Perry Central’s Ransom positively impacted the lives of countless students

    With the recently announced retirement of Perry Central Athletic Director Bob Ransom, let us pause to recognize his decades of work and devotion to our schools and community.

  • Don’t be afraid to ask tough questions about Riverview Energy project

    Dear Fellow Citizens:

     

    Since our letter to the editor last October, more information has come out about this project which was previously such a secret. Of course, the Lincolnland Economic Development Corp. and Riverview Energy Corp. (the company heading this project) have provided a glowing and idealistic picture of how wonderful this project will be for Dale and the entire area. Also, there is an impression that everyone is just thrilled about it.

    Some questions and concerns come to mind. You may have the same or different ones.

  • Addicts need help, not only incarceration

    My name is Bryan Price. I am currently serving time in Indiana Department of Correction. I have 3 years and 7 months remaining in my sentence. I am an addict and will always be proud to help anyone try to understand addiction.

    I have nine felonies I have to live with for the rest of my life, many of them due to drugs. I was reading all of the names of people that the Tell City Police and Perry County Sheriff’s Department arrested. Your newspaper asked for feedback, so here is what I have to say.

  • Renaissance class thanks for support

    On Friday, Feb. 16, the Renaissance Leadership Class at Tell City Junior-Senior High School hosted its annual spaghetti dinner and silent auction.

  • Junior Achievement had many helpers

    Junior Achievement of Perry County would like to thank our 2016-17 sponsors. Their support allowed us to promote financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship programs.

  • LETTER: Meals on Wheels needs volunteer drivers

    Meals on Wheels of Southwestern Indiana, a division of SWIRCA and More, is recruiting volunteer drivers to deliver meals to home bound senior citizens in the area. Drivers and substitutes are needed for four meal routes and will serve approximately 9 to 12 meals per route. Drivers are needed Monday through Thursday between the hours of 10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m.

  • LETTER: Don’t cut programs that help the hungry

    This week, President Trump announced his budget proposal for fiscal year 2019. We are dismayed to see that this administration is laying out a plan that sets a dangerous course for many low income and vulnerable Hoosiers.

    Most devastating are the proposed cuts and structural changes to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.

  • Students help those in need

    We would like to give a special thank you to William Tell Elementary School for their food drive, which benefited the Council of Agencies.

    Also, thanks so much to any other school drive and all donations from everyone. All volunteers were very helpful and appreciated so much.

    Treasurer, Council of Agencies

  • Robotics competition had many helpers

    On Saturday, Feb. 3, 26 elementary VEX robotic teams descended on William Tell Elementary School. It was our first attempt at such an endeavor which also happened to be a state qualifying event.

    I am proud to say everything went extremely well. It would not have been possible without the support of the school staff, teachers, students and the entire school corporation. The event also involved some high school teachers, school board members, and administration officials (John Scioldo was a great master of ceremonies) working at this event.
