  • Thank God for George W. Bush

    After Sept.11, 2001, the United States found itself involved in a new kind of warfare. We had an enemy with no discernable borders, no real army or uniforms. He was elusive and was hiding in at least 40 different countries all around the world.

    There was no way we could fight his kind of shadowy war. The only way to get at him was to coerce him to fight ours.

  • Commodores run past Corydon 14-0

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central got its ball-control running game going in the second half to defeat Corydon 14-0 in football Friday.

    The Commodores had some good runs in their scoreless first half, including a 17-yard gain by T.J. Hall on their first possession.

    But they fumbled on the next play, and Corydon recovered it.

    Perry Central had another first-half drive stalled by two consecutive holding penalties caused by “maybe trying a little bit too hard,” said Perry Central Coach Mike Spencer.

    TELL CITY—Tell City couldn’t get its spiking attack going consistently as it lost to Southridge 25-12, 25-21, 25-11 in PAC volleyball Thursday.

    The Marksmen were playing shorthanded, with McKenzie Hayes (mild concussion) and Leslie Poole (hamstring) both sidelined by injuries.

    “We had a lot of people out of position, especially in the back row,” said Tell City Coach Dalonda Hayes.

  • TC boys shooting for semistate

    TELL CITY—Tell City boys cross country coach Chris Hollinden thinks only two teams from the Jasper sectional will make it to the semistate this year, and he thinks his squad has a good chance to be one of them.

    “Perry Central is the overwhelming favorite in the sectional,” said Hollinden Thursday. “We should be second—it should be between us and Jasper. They beat us by one point today. Heritage Hills and Forest Park could be there too—we’re all pretty close.”

  • Marksman girls team lacks depth

    TELL CITY—Sarah Goffinet gives Tell City’s cross country team a strong No. 1 runner again this year, but the Marksmen are lacking in depth.

    Goffinet won the PAC and sectional meets last year as a freshman and placed 10th in the semistate to qualify for the state meet.

    She took up where she left off last year in Thursday’s season-opening Forest Park invitational, winning the race in 21:51.

    Other letter winners returning from last year are Andyn Rowe, Brittany Waninger, Mariah Nix and Erika Hauenstein.

    ORLEANS—Orleans overcame a 2-0 deficit in games to beat Perry Central 23-25, 23-25, 25-18, 25-9, 15-12 in PLAC volleyball Thursday.

    “We played really well the first two games,” said Perry Central Coach Becky Genet. “And the next two games we couldn’t do anything right. We were hitting balls into the net and hitting balls out of bounds.”

    Perry Central built a 6-0 lead in the fifth game but again had some errors after that.
