  • Church grateful for street-fair support

    Evangelical United Church of Christ members and church council wish to thank everyone who came to our first 10th Street Fall Fair Sept. 19. We were blessed with a beautiful day to benefit four great organizations, Crisis Connection, Perry County Food Coalition, Weekend Backpack program and the Perry County Council on Aging.

    Many thanks to these organizations and the Fostering Hope group that had information booths to help educate the community on the amazing work they do.

  • Community support of village impressive

    Once again, we find ourselves awed by the number of generous hardworking people in Perry and Hancock counties.

  • Can-Clay Corp. committed to Cannelton

    This letter is in response to the article published in the Perry County News titled “Cannelton candidates air views at forum.”

Can-Clay Corp. has recently shipped pipe to places such as Saudi Arabia, the Philippines, Europe, Texas and California, to name just a few.

  • Risse is right choice for city council

    I write on behalf of my friend Sean Risse. I have known Sean since coaching him as a youth in basketball.

    My current civil duties require me to make tough decisions and I can’t stress the importance of these decisions. Sean, with your support, can step into a similar role and I have confidence he too can make the tough decisions that will come.

  • Learning academy thankful for support

    The Perry County Learning Academy believes it is never too late to learn. That is why the Learning Academy is ready to serve high school students and adults who have gotten off track for completing their high school diploma or equivalent. 

    The Perry County Learning Academy is extremely grateful to United Way of Perry County for its support of PCLA efforts to increase the educational attainment in our community.

  • United Way strengthening local families

    I believe in the advocacy, efficiency and accountability of United Way of Perry County.

    That is why, I am very grateful to be a recipient of United Way of Perry County’s eCommunity Investment Funding. 

    I often locate or identify essential resources for the families, in which we serve as a school district.

    I can confidently recommend any program that has been ‘deemed’ worthy of partnering with United Way of Perry County.

  • Thanks for all of the fall festival help

    We want to thank everyone who helped make the Fall Festival at Rome successful. The News gave us advertising ahead of the event, Nobles worked with us purchasing the food, and to the visitors who came to eat or listen to the band or buy items from the country store. We enjoyed having the House Kat Trio provide music for the event. We also appreciate the write up in the News last week following the festival.

  • What a grand day it was in Bristow Oct. 11

    A special thank you to God for such a beautiful day for the Bristow car show Oct. 11.

    If you were not there, you missed a nice day with friends from far and near who came back to claim their roots and those who live close by.

    The town was clean and looked really nice. It took a lot of time and labor to make things happen.

    The food was great and music and every other thing seemed to fall in place. And there were so many beautiful cars, trucks and other classic vehicles that came from everywhere.
