    By KEVIN KOELLING, Managing Editor

    CANNELTON – Recent changes left the Cannelton Police Department short, Chief Lee Hall reported at a regular meeting of the city’s board of public works and safety Jan. 9.

    He was named chief by incoming Mayor Mary Snyder after Eric Dickenson resigned at the end of the year, and his upward move opened a full-time position.

    He secured the board’s permission to redesignate John Kleeman a part-time officer, a “bump up” from his unpaid reserve status.

  • Cannelton girls cruise past Columbus Christian

    COLUMBUS—Sarah Powers scored 27 points as Cannelton crushed Columbus Christian 67-18 in girls basketball Monday.

    Thus Cannelton raced to a 43-4 halftime lead.
    Powers made several layups in transition as she hit 10 of 20 shots from two-point range and 4 of 4 free throws. But she made only 1 of 10 three-point shots.

  • Anti-class basketball bill has no business in state legislature

    The anti-class basketball bill that Sen. Mike Delph, R-Carmel, has introduced in this session of the Indiana legislature is consistent with state Republicans’ attempts to bludgeon the little guy.
    Like the so-called “right-to-work” bill (which would actually lead to less tolerable working conditions) that Republicans are pushing, Delph’s bill would make it hard for the little guy to get a fair shot.
    In this case the little guy is  every small school in the state.
