    The Commodores held a 31-29 halftime lead only because of their 21-13 rebounding advantage, which gave them four baskets directly off rebounds.
    The Bulldogs outrebounded Perry Central 10-4 in the third quarter, though.

  • COLUMN: A visit by St. Nicholas

    By VINCE LUECKE, Editor

    As of Friday morning, I had an old shoe ready for St. Nicholas’ visit Sunday night. With any luck, I will have found a few pieces of chocolate inside the shoe the next morning.

    Will I really get excited when I walk onto my porch Monday? Not really, but it’s worth keeping an old tradition and a reminder that some customs, no matter how far removed, are worthwhile.

  • EDITORIAL: Pearl Harbor remembered

    Tuesday marks the 69th anniversary of the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor. This  editorial was written by Cannelton News Editor Bob Cummings and published Dec. 6, 1960. At that time, the county was home to hundreds of World War II veterans. The number of living vets who fought in the war are far fewer today, but the relevance of Pearl Harbor Day remains. Cummings’ editorial is published here in its original words.

  • EDITORIAL: Healthy choices need to be made at home first

    Thursday saw Congress sign a new childhood nutrition bill that will now be presented to President Obama to sign into law. You may have heard of the bill; it’s the same one First Lady Michelle Obama is backing in which new nutrition standards will be set for foods sold in schools. According to TheHill.com, the $4.5 million bill will also expand the eligibility of children in need to participate in school-meal programs and give schools a 6-cent increase to help cafeterias serve healthier meals.
