  • Which is worse, killers or retirement advisers?

    As far as we know, we could have "Professional Murderer" printed on our business cards, and we'll have committed no crime.

    An investment professional advertising him- or herself as specializing in retirement planning, however, can suffer a $10,000 fine and license revocation for advertising that service.

  • Who will guide our schools?

    "People get the government they deserve." So the old adage goes. Recent events in Bell, Calif., are proving this 200-year-old quote to be right.

    People there are outraged that their elected officials have salaries higher that the president of the United States. I have been in contact with a journalist covering the story and he tells me that these officials have been in office quite awhile for the most part, one at least 26 years.

  • Cain hits well for North American all-star team

    FLORENCE, Italy—Tell City graduate Courtney Cain hit .667 for North America’s team in an age-18-and-under girls international softball tourney Aug. 3-6.

    Cain started two games in left field and went 8 for 12 to help North America place second in the tourney.

    The tourney featured pool games and then a double-elimination bracket. North America went 3-3 with wins over France, Germany and the Netherlands.

    Host Italy, with an American pitcher who pitches for Missouri State University, beat North America in the championship game.

  • Young Commodores expect improvement

    LEOPOLD—With its top two hitters and top setter returning from last year, Perry Central’s volleyball team hopes to improve on last year’s 11-23 record.

    The Commodores still have a young team, with only four seniors and two juniors on their 19-girl roster.

    But the six-player freshman class went 14-0 as eighth graders. Two of them will start on the varsity this year, Sydney Goffinet and Hannah Harpenau at outside hitters.

  • Tell City rebuilding

    TELL CITY—Tell City’s volleyball team graduated most of its top hitters last year.

    And with only two seniors and three juniors on the team this year “it’s really a rebuilding year,” said Tell City Coach Dalonda Hayes.

    There are only 16 players on the roster. Mackenzie Weyer, who saw varsity action last year as a freshman, moved to Forest Park and Josalyn Ress has decided to concentrate on fall softball, the sport she will likely play in college.

  • Tell City tennis team has experienced singles players

    TELL CITY—With all three singles starters and a No. 1 doubles player returning, Tell City’s boys tennis team hopes to improve on last year’s 2-9 record.

    Sophomore Anjan Kashyab made All-PAC as a freshman, compiling a 9-5 record as the Marksmen’s No. 1 singles player.

    He played in several United States Tennis Association tourneys this summer.

    Greg Hollinden played No. 2 singles last year and Chris Kohnert played No. 3.

  • Tell City girls golf team has experience but lacks depth

    TELL CITY—With three starters returning, Tell City’s girls golf team could improve on last year’s 1-17 record.

    But the Marksmen have no margin for error, as for the second year in a row they have only four girls on the team. Thus they will have to count every girl’s score in every match.

    C.J. Fentress returns for her senior season after posting the best average score on the team last year.
