    TROY – The town of Troy’s agreement with WGS Global Services to provide electrical equipment for a new warehouse in the community will now be voided because the contract, sent by the town in July, was never returned, according to town officials.

    WGS was to make its first payment by Sept. 10 to compensate Troy Electric Utility for $135,000 in equipment and services. The company failed to do so, voiding, at least in the eyes of city leaders, the contract.

  • Claycomb wants Cannelton’s undefeated team to reunite

    Cannelton is currently selling T-shirts that read: Cannelton football: Undefeated since 1972.
    That’s true, of course, because Cannelton has not fielded a football team since 1971, when the Bulldogs went 0-10.
    But there was a time not long before that when they actually played football and went undefeated.
    That was 1966, when they went 8-0 to win the Pocket Athletic Conference title for the first time since 1942.
    That 1966 team finished the season with a 29-25 win over South Spencer. But most of the Bulldogs’ games were not that close.
