    Do you call your noon meal lunch or dinner?

    Thinking about many of the old farmers I used to work for had me thinking last week about the words we describe our noon meal.

    In fact, a man well into his 80s recently said he had to get home and fix dinner for a lady friend. It was 11 a.m.

    Most of us refer to dinner as an evening meal and many of us simply call it “supper.”

    TELL CITY – Future plans for an animal control officer may rest with cooperation from the municipalities. The Perry County Council told local Humane Society Director Jim Carter they would not back any plan to hire an officer without contributions from  the incorporated communities of Tell City, Cannelton and Troy.

    That was not welcomed news to Carter, who told the council at their regular meeting Thursday that they could employ someone for a fraction of the previously budgeted cost.
