Letters

  • LETTER: Don’t forget to complete your ag census

    My husband and I live on a mid sized farm in northwestern Minnesota, where we grow corn, soybeans, sugar beets, wheat, and alfalfa. Several of our grown children are farmers too, raising families and teaching them how to be competent, resourceful future farmers.

    We all rely on good policy that effectively keeps farms operational – especially young farmers who need startup capital and supportive risk-management tools. So every five years, my family does something very important for our farms and communities – we complete the Census of Agriculture.

  • Perry County is a wonderful place

    I am grateful to the late superintendent of Perry Central Schools, Edgar Etienne, for hiring me to teach there in 1965.

    I give the following reasons why I feel the county of Perry is wonderful:

    Reason 1: some Perry County businesses give veterans a discount on transactions; some counties do not do this. I like to consider it as a thanks for serving.

    Reason 2: Businesses Jasper Engines, Waupaca Foundry and Ivy Tech are involved with schools. An example is Commodore Manufacturing in the Perry Central School System.

  • Democracy demands a right to know

    At the end of their year, corporations create an annual report for their shareholders. They mail it to those shareholders or present it at a meeting of those shareholders. The information helps investors decide on whether they want to increase or decrease their holdings in that corporation.

  • Silvesternacht certainly was cold but warm in community spirit

    On behalf of the members of the Perry County Quality of Life Committee, we would like to extend our sincere gratitude for all those who assisted in planning and hosting the sixth annual Silvesternacht celebration on New Year’s Eve. 

    It would not be possible without the enthusiastic collaboration between the city of Tell City, local businesses and organizations and Tell City Troy Township School Corp. 

  • Tell City Kiwanis Club says ‘thank you’

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

  • The importance of words

    We must never let words control our thoughts; we must control them. Incorrect usage of words and punctuation can produce confusion, miscomprehension and improper conclusions in the mind of the reader.

    In the past the incorrect usage of words and punctuation have produced disastrous consequences.

    V.I. Lenin misplaced a simple comma while writing a directive which resulted in the mass murder of thousands.

  • Daughters of Isabella thankful for support

    The Daughters of Isabella would like to thank the following merchants for their donations to the annual Christmas fundraiser. Without their help, the fundraiser would not have been successful.

  • Huck’s stores help kids at Christmas

    Kids are a large part of our culture and a primary part of Huck’s Mission Statement. The Karing for Kids Program, now in its 15th year, was crafted by Huck’s to make Christmas special for those children who are less fortunate and to give back to the communities we live and work in.

  • Help wish Randy Davis a happy retirement

    After 45 years behind the wheel of that white Conner Floor Covering van, Randy Davis is getting off his knees and packing up his carpet stretcher for the last time! As of Dec. 22, Randy is officially retiring and taking some well-earned time off.

    In the spring of 1971, my dad told Randy he could probably use some extra temporary help in his construction business that summer. That temporary help lasted until the next year when dad started selling floor coverings also, and Randy began his lifelong career installing them.

  • Local residents show community spirit

    On behalf of the Rome Cemetery Association, we wish to thank William J. Coomer and his wife, Carolyn L. Coomer, for their second very generous gift of a large parcel of land to expand the already full Lamb/Rowe local landmark cemetery. 

    These rural, out-of-the-way cemeteries are often overlooked and almost forgotten. 

    But for the families whose descendants go back centuries and wish to continue their heritage in Perry County, it is important they have the opportunity to do so.
