  • Hess family grateful for community support, donations

    Jason Hess and his parents Don and Lynda Hess would like to thank everyone who donated to the money cans at these local stores: Marcy’s, Guillaume’s Store, Smackwater, Derby General, Derby Market, Smokin Pit and Tell Street Café.

    There are a lot of people to thank from local churches to Casper Saw Mill for donating wood.

    Thanks to all of the great people who stopped by the IGA bake sell we had. Don’t get me started on the wonderful people at Masterbrand.

  • K of C Auxiliary says thanks

    Thanks to the generous support of many area businesses and individuals, the Ladies Auxiliary of the Knight’s Club hosted an incredibly successful silent auction. We cannot adequately express our appreciation.

    It is wonderful to see so many people/businesses join together in an effort to raise money that will help support our projects with the goal of putting back into the community the funds we raise. The following is a list of all who supported this project. Thank you so much!

  • Scouts’ candy helps troops

    St. Paul Boy Scout Troop 192 would like to thank the community for its donations of leftover Halloween candy.

    To the schools and businesses that participated, thank you for allowing boxes to be put at your locations as drop-off points.

    The boys mailed out 20 large boxes of candy and condiments (148 pounds) to our servicemen and women.

    We hope to continue this service again next year.

    Thanks again.

     

    Roy Mitchell

    Scoutmaster, Troop 192

  • A proud American veteran

    As a former teacher and handicapped military veteran, I was surprised by four of my former fine Perry Central students, namely Ellen (Jones) Haire, Susan (Bryant) Ubelhor, Donna (Hedinger) Schipp and Dorothy (Schaefer) Gelarden at Denny’s Restaurant in Jasper on Veterans Day.

    They provided a fine meal and a Denny’s gift certificate. I consider it an early Christmas gift.

    What a wonderful relationship between former students and their former teacher.

    God bless them. Yes, I taught many wonderful students at Perry Central. Thank you again.

  • Taste and Share event a hit

    The Catholic Charities Tell City Advisory Board along with Agency Director Joan Hess would like to thank the community for supporting our recent Taste and Share event.

    This second annual fundraiser was successful and money raised will enable us to offer support to many needy neighbors.

    Special thanks are given to Mayor Jim Adams and the city of Tell City for the use of the Schergens Center, Betty Cash, Teresa Dauby and Cinderella’s, James Rash, Danny Bolin, Leo Gronquist, and everyone who attended, bought a ticket, or donated to our programs.

  • Holiday brightened for families

    More than 240 local residents received a Thanksgiving meal this year thanks to many who supported Evangelical United Church of Christ’s annual Thanksgiving dinner.

    The project would not be successful without the generous donations of cash, pies, time in the kitchen and delivery of meals.

    Special thanks to Bill and Dave’s Smokin’ Pit for smoking four turkeys for us. We appreciate the many volunteers who helped and plan to continue this annual project.

     

  • Community made 4-H event a success

    The Perry County 4-H Council would like to take this opportunity to thank the Junior Leaders, fairgrounds committee, livestock committee, local 4-H clubs, Chris Kessens, Chris Tempel and all who helped cook the food, and everyone else who helped with the dinner and auction that was held on Nov 4.

    Your support is greatly appreciated and a great help to the program. Special thanks to all the donors:

  • Making Cannelton Christmases brighter

    Another Christmas season is upon us and it is time to decorate the city. As you may know, it has been decades since the city, or any group supporting the city, has purchased commercial quality Christmas decorations to hang on the light poles along Highway 66 and Washington Street (Main Street).

  • City needs to encourage, not push away, home-based businesses

    I am concerned about the proposed limitation on home based businesses recently summarized in the News, as having received a “First Reading” at City Counsel. While the complete act was not printed, it did note that under the act, a home-based business could not occupy more than 15 percent of the residence.

  • Horse Rescue thanks generous community

    Horse Rescue South would like to thank all these businesses and great people for all the donations and help to make our fundraisers a success.
