    By KEVIN KOELLING, Managing Editor

    TELL CITY – With another referendum defeated, Ron Etienne said Nov. 9, he has started the process toward securing another qualified zone academy bond to continue improvements at Tell City Junior-Senior High School.

    Voters defeated this month the second of two referenda by a 585-vote margin. The first came in 2009, when 23 votes among the 1,521 cast separated the yes and no votes. This year’s election brought 3,919 responses to a ballot question asking about support for up to $6 million in improvements.

    The Cannelton Library’s recent decision to pursue a merger with the Tell City-Perry County Library is good news for patrons of both in the short term, but there could be problems in the future.

    Both library buildings would remain open, and patrons of each would have access to all the volumes of both. Though the Tell City library is larger, each has some books that the other does not. So that means patrons of both libraries would have more choices of reading material.
