  • 'Clash of the Titans' has decent action, but it's no epic

    I don't have a nostalgic feeling toward the original "Clash of the Titans" (1981). I rewatched it recently and just couldn't get past the cheesy stop-motion animation. Some people may a have a special place in their heart for the campy film about Perseus and the Greek gods, but not me. I was very excited to see a big-budget remake of this film and I suppose I'm glad they did it.

    TELL CITY—Tell City scored 10 runs in the fifth inning to overtake Heritage Hills for a 13-12 PAC baseball victory Tuesday.

    The Patriots’ first five batters of the game hit safely as they built a 5-0 first-inning lead.

  • Cannelton girls team features strong infield

    CANNELTON—With seven letter winners and two talented freshmen who have played on summer all-star and travel teams, Cannelton has one of its most experienced girls softball teams.

    But the Bulldogs lack experience and depth at the position that often dominates fastpitch softball—pitcher.

    Sophomore Sammie James, who was the team’s No. 2 pitcher last year, is the only one this year.

    “We’re trying to develop another one,” said Cannelton Coach Brian Garrett.

     James went 0-4 for the 0-12 Bulldogs last year.
