  • 'Edge of Darkness' a worthy return for Mel Gibson

    "Edge of Darkness" marks the first time Mel Gibson has starred in a film for nearly eight years. It's a shame Mel waited this long, because he's still got it.

    Maybe you feel differently about him after all the controversy of the past few years. If his remarks or actions made you hate him, this film isn't going to bring you back on his side. If, like me, you ignore controversy and just watch a movie, then you'll get a nostalgic feeling while watching "Edge of Darkness" and you'll wish Mel never took a break.

  • Eagles defeat Marksmen

    TELL CITY—Ohio County hit 70.0 percent from the field in the second half to beat Tell City 67-59 in boys basketball Monday.

    “We’ve played with a lot of teams but we can’t finish them off because we don’t have the desire yet to lock anybody down on defense,” said Tell City Coach John Hayes.

    He added, “We played pretty decent defense the first half and gave up 27 points. But the second half we gave up 40 points, and there’s not a team on our schedule we can beat giving up 40 points in a half.”
