    By ERIC HARRIS, Film Review

    Writer-director Duncan Jones made a splash with his 2009 debut feature, “Moon.” It made my Top 10 that year. It was an interesting and entertaining sci-fi film and made many people eager to see what project Jones would make next. Thankfully, Jones stuck with the sci-fi genre with “Source Code” and while he didn’t share a writing credit on this one – it was written by Ben Ripley – it is still an engrossing film with a bit of visual flair.

  • Museum to exhibit Butler artwork

    By VINCE LUECKE, Editor

    John Butler took up painting in his 50s, determined to rekindle a love that first flickered as an elementary student at Newman School. Erna Coldewey taught art at the school and Butler was enamored with the subject during his elementary and early high-school years. Life has a way of putting artistic ambitions on hold and that was the case for Butler, now 90, who went on to serve in World War II and raise a family. The Tell City native wouldn’t resume his painting until decades later, but when he did, he helped preserve local history.
