• Give annexation petitioners their day in court

    Personally, I have not had a strong opinion on the annexation issue. I can see the arguments for and against, and while recognizing the high stakes and high passions involved, I am not confident in saying whose argument (if either) should take precedence.

  • City owes annexation opponents an apology

    My name is Terry L. Miles. I am a life long resident of Perry County. I was born in Tell City in November 1942. I went to Newman School and graduated from Tell City High School in 1961.

    After four years in the Navy, I returned home and found a job at GE. I was there until 1974, when our jobs went overseas. I found work at Commonwealth Aluminum in 1976.

    I retired after 26 years in 2004.

  • Thanks for making supper, auction a great success

    Cornerstone Christian School just can’t thank the community, school parents and the Freewill Baptist Church enough for their generous support during our recent soup supper and silent auction fundraising event. 

    Thanks to the donations of supplies for the supper, items for the auction, money, time and a lot of hard work. It was a wonderful success.

    We asked for desserts and we got them. The amount provided by both the church and our school families was astounding!

  • Community foundation thanks trivia night supporters

    On behalf of the Perry County Community Foundation Advisory Board, I want to say thank you to all the participants and businesses that made the 2016 Perry County Community Foundation’s Trivia Night a success. Proceeds from the night go into a fund that grants to community nonprofit groups.

    Hats off to area companies that sponsored the event. Titanium sponsors were C&S Inc. and Waupaca Foundry. Gold sponsor was Perry County Memorial Hospital and Silver sponsors included Domtar, Mulzer Crushed Stone and WAMCO LLC.

  • Tell City Police thank all for backing canine program

    This letter is in response to the generous outpour of community support for the Tell City Police Department K9 Program. This past September, we endured the retirement of our companion and K9 partner, Jago. While we felt the importance of continuing this great service to our community, we understood that a circumscribed budget would make this a challenging task. After a few months of accepting donations, it was clear· to us that we work for a wonderful community who share our passion for public safety.

  • Pseudoephedrine abuse gets the cold shoulder

    State Rep. Ron Bacon

    District 75


    Session is halfway complete, and legislators have been pulling some long nights in order to consider all of the possible ways to improve our Hoosier state. In order to stay alive and advance to the Senate, every one of our bills had to pass the House by the end of the day on Feb. 2. The House moved 116 pieces of legislation to the Senate for consideration.

  • Thanks for making dinner, auction big hits

    The Tell City Renaissance Class and student steering committee would like to thank the following individuals and businesses for their support and help in making our recent spaghetti dinner and silent auction a huge success.

  • Judge’s ruling robs residents of day in court

    Almost three years ago the Tell City Common Council voted to annex 1,776 acres of Perry County, which is an acreage increase of 40 percent when compared to the current size of Tell City.

  • Commodore fan appreciates sports coverage

    Unable to attend many sports events, I appreciate very much the coverage of sports in the Perry County News.

    I am also appreciative of the sponsorship by businesses for Perry Central sports events on radio broadcasts for us old folks, who are unable to attend events. I try to patronize those businesses whenever possible.

    Each time I get to attend a Perry Central athletic event, it is like a homecoming.

    Again, thank you to the little boy who bought one of my music CDs as a gift to his grandma.

  • Ben Carson: A compassionate problem solver our nation needs in the White House

    As we get deeper into 2016, it’s going to become even more obvious to the public that the economy has been seriously damaged and broken.

    The people are waking up to the fact that the Washington establishment has been promoting a corrupt status quo that, rather then fixing the economy, has instead, been further destroying it.
