Also the significance of valuable mentoring from his father, “Jolly,” and newspaper legend Edgar Schergens.

    Successful people are always looking for an opportunity to help others. And for some that can start at an early age. For Tell City resident B.L. “Louie” Heitkemper, it started at the age of 12 dabbling with a hand-cranked printing press his father bought him.
