  • Marksmen hope size, speed offset their lack of depth

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—Tell City football coach Ryan George hopes good size and quickness can make up for his team’s lack of depth.
    There are 37 boys on the roster, “about the same as last year,” George noted. “I thought we’d have a few more kids out. We’ve got good kids, but we’re a little thin.”
    Not physically thin, though. The offensive line will feature 6-foot-2, 270-pound Cody Osborne and 6-foot-3, 260-pound Justin Gunterman at tackles.

  • School board will move slowly on energy upgrades



    LEOPOLD – Like many Hoosier school campuses, Perry Central’s is a combination of old and new. The heart of the school was constructed in the second half of the 1960s while other areas were built in the 1980s and 1990s. The buildings serve students well but some are in need of newer, more efficient heating and cooling systems that, if installed, could save the district sizable sums of money.
