    As Tell City prepares itself for another week of Schweizer Fest, the list of activities and events to attend and participate in can be quite overwhelming. We are lucky to live in a community that honors its heritage yearly, and by doing so, offers us so many ways to celebrate throughout the week. An event that has quickly grown to be one of the largest of the Schweizer Fest sporting events is the road run.

  • COLUMN: It’s often a two-class world

    By VINCE LUECKE

    I saw a friend of mine in a new vehicle last week, a sport-utility vehicle made by a luxury car brand that lists for more than $50,000. That’s a lot of money for a set of wheels.

    Personally, I prefer a used car. My old Buick isn’t much to look at and garners a new nick or scrape every few months, but still gets me from point to point on time.

  • EDITORIAL: Chicken sandwiches and greasy politicians

    A few words about gay marriage made by Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy have certainly led to the spilling of ink in recent days. That didn’t surprise us. Neither did reactions that included Wednesday’s support of a Chick-fil-A event sponsored by Mick Huckabee or Friday’s “kiss-in” planned by those who disagree with Cathy’s comments.

    Regular customers of the restaurant chain probably hope things get back to normal soon. Good luck.
