  • '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.

    "It's an awesome job," Sanders said. "I'm not giving it up. It's not an easy job, but it's an easy-going job."

  • Tell City museum's roots run deep

    Editor's Note: This is the first in an occasional series on the Tell City Historical Society Museum. Future installments will profile some of the museum's offerings and projects.

    The building located on the corner of Franklin and Ninth streets was the original site of the Tell City Public Library. This lot was donated to the city in 1916. With the aid of a $10,000 Carnegie Corp. grant, the library was built - the last such Carnegie library built in Indiana.

  • 10-run inning lifts Tell City over Pats

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

    Heritage Hills led 9-3 going into the bottom of the sixth.

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

    That inning included doubles by Ty Simpson and Drew Rosbottom and a three-run homer by Tirey Burch.

    It appeared that inning alone would be enough for the Patriots to win the game, as Tell City had only four hits in the first four innings.
