Judge weighs in: Annexation moving forward

The annexation battle in Tell City is all but over after a judge sided with the city. The issue is now headed to an appeals judge for review. Remonstrators are being asked to post a $177,000 bond to cover the city's potential losses should the decision be overturned.

What are your views on the issue? Is the city justified in expanding its bounds? Should residents opposed to annexation have to secure a bond in order to continue the court debates?

SIMON is a male brown tabby about 1-year-old who was surrendered to the shelter in January. He is fully declawed, neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations and ready for his forever home.

Because the shelter is currently overflowing with cats, adoption fees for cats six months and older have been reduced to $25 for one cat or $35 for a pair. The shelter staff says many of the cats have been overlooked and have been waiting months to find a home.
