Today's Features

  • Anyone who's seen bullying in action, whether as the victim or as a witness, feels the pain, Tell City Junior High School Counselor Cindia Ress said Monday. Efforts this year to end that pain culminated in a Friday-afternoon assembly, photo session and mini-carnival.

  • TELL CITY - Ronald Reagan's visit to Tell City's General Electric plant 13 years earlier may be better remembered in the annals of local history, but Sen. Ted Kennedy's barnstorming visit in 1968 left lasting memories for many who heard him speak at City Hall.

    A U.S. senator since 1962, Kennedy, 77, died Tuesday and was buried Saturday.

  • The Hoosier National Forest offers some of the best fishing locations in the state. The warm climate provides anglers with several more quality fishing days relative to the northern parts of the state.

    Numerous lakes, ponds, and streams in the forest provide anglers with the opportunity to pursue largemouth bass, bluegill, channel catfish, redear sunfish and other sport fish.  

  • TROY - A stoutly built stone structure possibly used as an icehouse in Troy will find a new home in the Shubael Little Pioneer Village. St. Pius Catholic Church has donated the stone building, which is located near Indiana 66. It will be disassembled block by block this fall and restored at the village near Rocky Point.

    Well over a century old, the structure will be rebuilt to its original standards, including a wood shake roof, said Chuck Poehlein, developer of the village that already includes several log cabins.

  • TELL CITY - The finals for next month's Shoot for the Stars singing competition are set. Four gents, Glenn Cronin, David McKinney, Ronald Riley and Dillon McKinney, earned berths Sunday to compete in the Sept. 20 finals in City Hall Park.

  • DOOLITTLE MILLS - Over the years Bethel Christian Church has gone through many changes. This year is no different as the congregation celebrates its centennial.

    In 1909, the Doolittle Mills church building, already in use by a church congregation, was purchased from Jordan Williams in Crawford County and moved and rebuilt on a half acre of land donated by John Roberson. According to an early history of the church, all of the labor was donated and more land was donated by Iola Ransom and Ronnie Wright.
