  • LETTER: Pray with full confidence

    If we are going to pray for rain, we must do it in faith without doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, being moved by the wind and blown here and there.

    For that man must not expect to receive anything from the Lord, since he is a double-minded man, unsettled in all his ways.
        -- James 1:6-8

  • LETTER: Dog owners: Parks aren’t pet bathrooms

    My son and grandson were in town visiting me last week. They went to the City Hall Park to play catch and had to watch where they stepped because of the dog feces.

    Why do we have a dog park? The city park will do. I watch people bring their dogs in cars and walking to do their job in the park. I have only seen one with a plastic bag.

    Most cities and towns have ordinances that require an owner to pick up after their pet.

    Much money has been spent to have a beautiful downtown and park. It’s something to be proud of.

    St. Paul Church Picnic 2012 is history, but God again blessed us with a beautiful, warm, breezy day in the park.

    My list of thank yous must start at the ministry center with Tammy and especially Mandy. You helped by guiding me in the right direction with all the rules and regulations. Sister Mary Emma was again my moral support and that meant a lot. Valeria and Vickie were helpful in the various planning stages.

  • LETTER: Ask volunteers to clean parks

    Reading the article about the Eagle Bluff Park at Cannelton was very sad to me. We have a beautiful restroom and shelterhouse.

    As a tourist on Indiana 66, would I want to stop for a visit if I knew about the trash or keep on going?

    I have been to all the locks on the Ohio River in Louisville District; our view here, the river, locks, power plant is the best overall.

    Try asking the good people from Perry County to volunteer an hour or two each week to help keep it clean.
