    FERDINAND—No Tell City players were selected to the All-PAC boys basketball team Monday, but seniors Matthew Watts and Brian Arnold received honorable mention.
    Voting was done by conference coaches, with no coach allowed to vote for his own players.
    Tell City Coach Brent Owen said he thinks the Marksmen “maybe could maybe have gotten one on there if” he had told the other coaches that he preferred they vote for one Tell City player over the other.

  • Perry Central to face taller foe in regional

    HUNTINGBURG—Perry Central has more seniors and Switzerland County has more height, but otherwise the teams that will meet in the first game of the Southridge boys basketball regional Saturday are pretty similar.
    Both have good quickness, including several star track athletes.
    Austin LeClere, Andrew Huber, Colten Hedinger, Abe Schwartz and Dacota Schaad were all on Perry Central’s team that won the Jasper track sectional last May.

  • PC’s depth pays off in sectional title run

    Perry Central’s depth has been a key factor in its boys basketball success all season and was again in its sectional championship.
    The Commodores almost always use at least eight players in the first half and nine in a game.
    In Saturday’s championship game Mater Dei used only seven players the entire game, and their two reserves did not score or even attempt a shot.
    Abe Schwartz, a starting guard for the Commodores their first 20 games of the season, then missed two games with a torn ligament in his ankle.

  • COLUMN: The amazing property-tax reassessment of 2013

    By LARRY DeBOER
    Guest Columnist

    Every six to 10 years Indiana has a statewide reassessment to update property values for property tax bills. We remeasure the characteristics of real property – square footage, building materials, home improvements and so forth.

    We apply new data on prices and costs to these characteristics. Since we waited so long between reassessments, we would update for six to 10 years of inflation all at once. Assessed values would jump.
