  • Lone win sends Legacy Financial into tie for first

    TELL CITY – Legacy Financial rallied in the bottom of the last inning to win its only game Wednesday and moved into a first-place tie in Tell City’s age-13-16 girls softball league.

  • COLUMN: Heard here and there

    By VINCE LUECKE
    Editor

    One of my not always small list of faults is a tendency to not put on paper the comments I hear from readers when outside the office. Whether phone calls, e-mails I receive at home or comments heard when I’m out and about, I am the happy recipient of regular ideas, tips, complaints and suggestions for stories, features and, on occasion, this column. I just don’t always remember them or jot them down, so I will.

  • EDITORIAL: It’s now or never for 7th Street’s Obrecht House

    It’s hard for us to point fingers at any one person whose property is in need of repair, but the sorry state of the Obrecht House on Tell City’s Seventh Street is one that warrants community concern and this editorial.

    The home needs repaired and restored or it needs to be torn down. It’s that simple.

    Let us say, up front, that we hope the home is saved and we would be overjoyed if the current owner, Carolyn Barr, would follow through with her pledge, published in the newspaper a few weeks ago, to return the home to its past glory.
