TELL CITY - The Tell City Common Council has announced October recipients of its Partners in Pride awards for city beautification.

Council members have recognized homeowners, businesses and churches for taking pride in their properties. October's awards will be the last for this year, but awards are expected to resume next spring. Recognized this month are:

William Tell Antiques and owner Chris Cail, corner of Ninth and Washington streets, chosen by at-large councilman Tony Hollinden.

Don Owen residence, 501 14th St., chosen by Ward 1 Councilwoman Dianne Rudolph.

Jim and Goldie Hollinden residence, 631 23rd St., chosen by Ward 2 Councilman John Little.

Phil and Janean Fella residence, 834 10th St., chosen by Ward 3 Councilman Gerald Yackle.

Bobby O'Dell residence, 1240 20th St., chosen by Ward 4 Councilman Gary Morton.

Police Department

Chief Greg Hendershot reported on a $7,500 copier purchased for the department through a law-enforcement fund overseen by the county prosecutor's office.

The new copier allows the department to print color cop-ies, a feature it didn't before, and allows incoming faxes to be viewed before printed. "We can delete the junk faxes so we don't have to waste money on paper and ink," Hendershot said.

The new machine also allows documents to be scan-ned and saved to department computers.

Trick or Treat Hours

Tell City's works board has set trick-or-treating hours for 5 to 8 p.m. Oct. 31.
