  • Apples are abundant this fall and there are countless ways to use the fruit. Tasty year-round, nothing else quite says fall the same way as a tasty apple pie or apple strudel topped by ice cream.

    These recipes were taken from an October 1939 issue of The Tell City News. We trust they're just as tasty now.

    Apple Tapioca Cream Pudding

    3 apples, pared and thinly sliced

    2 tablespoons sugar

    1 tablespoon melted butter

    1 tablespoon lemon juice

    3 tablespoons boiling water

    21⁄2 tablespoons quick cooking tapioca

  • CANNELTON - The Ohio River became a real-life classroom last week for Indiana's next generation of conservation officers. This year's Department of Natural Resources Recruit Class learned about the Cannelton Locks and Dam and its role in Ohio River navigation.

    For some of the 24,  Wednesday and Thursday's training marked their first visit to southern Indiana. Despite the sunny skies overhead, recruits had little time for sightseeing.

  • TELL CITY - The summer of 2009 will always hold special memories for David McKinney. His soul-filled sounds filled City Hall Park monthly since May and won him the top prize Sunday as a Shoot for the Stars singing contest wrapped up.

    McKinney sang Travis Tritt's "Anymore" and "Walking in Memphis" by Marc Cohn to earn a prize package valued at $1,000.

  • Local officers gathered last Monday at the Tell City Police Department's shooting range off of Indiana 66 for their annual firearms recertification. Above, Perry County Chief Deputy Lee Chestnut, who is a certified firearms instructor, tallies fellow Deputy Daymion Marsh's score. Officers fire their service weapons at varying distances and have to achieve scores of at least 80 percent of a maximum 240 points to obtain their recertification. Tell City and Cannelton officers, as well as sheriff's deputies, passed.

  • Traffic stops. If any part of a police officer's job can be called routine, it's pulling over motorists for a faulty taillight, unsafe start or excess lead in their foot. The reasons an officer has for initiating a traffic stop are many and while nearly every encounter between patrolman and driver ends with nothing more serious than a citation, the truth is that every traffic stop poses risks. Local officers learned skills this summer that lessen those dangers.

  • LEOPOLD - Zaeden Hillenbrand is a happy, active 8-year-old boy who loves to laugh. "He's a big goofy kid," said his father, Fred Hillenbrand.

    This is a big difference from when doctors told Fred and his wife, Danielle, that Zaeden only had a 5 percent chance to survive, and if he did, his quality of life would be poor.

    Thanks to research and funding by the March of Dimes, however, he survives.

    "We owe them so much," said Danielle.

  • TELL CITY — After several months of singing their way to the top, four men will perform a final time Sunday to see who will be the Shoot for the Stars winner.

    Glenn Cronin, David McKinney, Ronald Riley and Dillon McKinney will sing two songs this weekend in City Hall Park. The event gets under way at 3 p.m. with additional performances by Leo Gronquist and Elliot Sublett.
