  • DEXTER — Crossroads Church has drawn worshippers for more than a century. Now its exterior is getting a little tender loving care. The public can help support the effort through donations. Church member Linda Schraner said she and the congregation are working to raise the $8,000 needed to replace clapboard on the front and rear of the church.

    "It's thin and worn after 117 years," Schraner said this week.

  • BRANCHVILLE — Mike Hubert, a Branchville Correctional Facility maintenance employee critically injured by three offenders who escaped in March, was presented a certificate of heroism Tuesday by Gov. Mitch Daniels.

    Hubert continues to recover from head injuries he suffered during the attack. The three men, who were later captured, struck him in the head with a blunt object before cutting through prison fences and fleeing.

  • October has been designated Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Domestic Violence Awareness Month was first observed nationally in 1987. Domestic violence is a serious crime. It is no longer ignored or thought of as a "family matter" to be worked out at home. Domestic violence affects numerous families right here in Perry County.

  • TELL CITY - Voters in the Tell City-Troy Township school district will be asked Nov. 3 to decide whether Tell City High School will undergo further renovations costing up to $10 million. In preparation for that election, a school referendum committee has been sending out information about proposed construction.

    In addition, an open house will begin at 2 p.m. Sunday at the high school, where student guides will show off recently completed work.

  • A recent Octoberfest gathering gave me the chance to dust off German-style dishes I don't prepare that often. Several visitors asked for a few of them. Here are a few, including a Reuben dip that  can easily be made in a slow cooker and is wonderful on crackers or with small cocktail bread.
