• PCDC has money; why is county poor?

    I find it a little odd that the Perry County Development Corp. has plenty of money to fund their projects while county workers go without pay raises, county roads go without stone and culverts, budgets get cut to “bare bones,” county taxes get raised and we are all told how little money there is to go around.

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

    Unfortunately, we did not meet our fundraising goal so we are still seeking end-of-the-year donations to help us cover the expenses of the program that provided 328 food baskets to the community this year as well as $1,000 to Perry Central to help provide food for families from their school.
