• Deaconess VNA United Way partnership

  • I was nearly killed by semi Thursday

    I was almost killed Thursday night when a semi driver ran the stop sign at full speed at the intersection of 237 and 37.

    He passed right in front of me. He must have been half asleep or texting because somehow he missed all the flashing lights.

    I wonder if the state  should install rumble strips there. Those are impossible to ignore, by even the most distracted of drivers.

    If you have had a similar experience, I suggest you contact INDOT. Maybe together we can save a life.



  • United Way supports adult education

    Perry County Adult Education is dedicated to helping local adults prepare for and pass the High School Equivalency Examination, formerly GED, now known as TASC.

    Adult learners have many barriers to overcome. Some are internal, such as motivation or confidence; others are external, such as lack of transportation to and from class or lack of money to pay the $90 TASC test fee.

    It is our goal to remove as many barriers as we can to enable adults to be successful in our program.

  • Farm to Table dinner a big success

    On behalf of the Perry County Quality of Life Committee, I would like to thank the following individuals, businesses, and organizations. Without their support, this event would not have been as successful as it was. 

    This community effort was highlighted on Sept. 24th as volunteers from all over the county came together to host our very first annual Farm to Table dinner and concert for the residents of Perry County.  This event is one of many traditions that we, as a committee, wish to start for Perry County.
