  • A pair of old tombstones apparently separated from the graves they were intended to mark are back where they belong — thanks to a combination of dedicated detective work and a desire to preserve a pioneering family's legacy.

    Evelyn Lasley, who staffs the genealogy department at the Tell City-Perry County Public Library, is the main sleuth in the tale of the tombstones created for two members of the Shields family, 3-year-old Addison and his 2-year-old sister, Mary.

    Addison was born in 1845 and Mary in 1841.

  • CANNELTON – Her first name refers to a sweet children's tale about a little girl lost in the woods. Maybe that's just to lull her opponents into a false sense of safety. Her last name, derived from the expression, "clean your clock," is closer to her job description.

    "One of the girls on the team picked it," said Goldie Klox, a blocker with the nonprofit RollerGirls of Southern Indiana. "I have highlights in my hair and I'm a hard hitter."

  • TELL CITY - Yohan Yarrow is a 7-year-old boy with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and even though his grandfather works full time and his grandmother part time, they might not have enough money to cover the medicine he needs this month.

    Across town, Robert Roger is a single father who drops off his 3-year-old son Roland at a day-care center before going to work to support his three children and pay bills.

  • Chris Deel hopes the welding skills he's mastering at Ivy Tech Community College will take him places.

    The Perry Central High School senior is nearing the end of his second and final semester of evening welding classes at the Tell City site. The credits he's earned, three per semester, not only count toward the high-school diploma he'll receive in a couple of weeks, but will also serve as college credits if he seeks a degree in welding.

    Deel said he is eyeing  a career in diesel mechanics but knows the skills he's learned could pay off in any number of ways.

  • PERRY COUNTY - Tell City and Perry Central elementary students were given opportunities in recent weeks to stir people in their lives into action to help save others.

    "We and Perry Central are having blood drives on back-to-back weekends," explained Stacy Fleck, nurse for the Tell City-Troy Township School Corp. Scheduled for April 25 and May 2, the drives weren't open to the general public, she said, so participating students get all of the credit.

  • Amanda Dickens talks to her son, Trent, and husband, Brian, while watching elephants graze Saturday morning during the set-up phase of the Kelly Miller Circus. Though not a part of the usual Dogwood Tour weekend, the circus provided another attraction to visitors and residents alike on a sun-kissed weekend.
