  • Should Hayes sit out this school year?

    Tell City’s volleyball and girls basketball teams were dealt a severe blow when Kassidie Hayes tore an anterior cruciate ligament in an AAU volleyball tourney recently.
    It was also a blow to Hayes’ college scholarship opportunities for volleyball.
    More than 10 college coaches were reportedly seriously scouting her at the tourney but now they won’t get another chance to see her play before the final signing period, as she will miss her entire senior high school season.

  • Pet of the week

    Todd is a 2-year-old male Treeing Walker coonhound. He is neutered, heartworm negative, and up-to-date on his vaccinations.

    Todd is a very well-mannered dog that does well with all people, kids and other dogs. He does appear to have a prey drive for small animals.

    He came to the shelter as a very thin stray and was never claimed, so staff is unsure whether Todd likes to hunt.

    Todd’s adoption fee of $100 includes neuter, all vaccines, heartworm test and flea, tick and heartworm preventative.
