  • New electric substation in Tell City a matter of confusion

    I only know what I read in the paper and I am really confused. The Tell City Electric Department announced Sept. 21 that they are planning to build a new substation on Spring Road.

    Spring Road is a heavily wooded county road and is a meandering extension of Tell Street that extends to an area near the junction of new Indiana 237 and Indiana 37.

    The Electric Department cites the reasons for the new substation as being:

    • Future load growth surrounding the Spring Road substation location.

  • United Way of Perry County launches funding campaign

    "We invite you to Live United, to reach out to your neighbors in need through the United Way, to give, advocate, and volunteer to help your community grow stronger," said Debbie Elder, United Way of Perry County's campaign chairwoman recently as she spoke to a group of employees in our community, asking them to contribute to the United Way of Perry County's annual fundraising drive.

  • PC routs Blackhawks

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central stopped Springs Valley’s running game and Springs Valley couldn’t stop Perry Central’s running in PLAC football Saturday. The result was a 47-7 win for the Commodores that really wasn’t that close.

    Perry Central jumped to a 28-0 lead in the first 10 minutes.

    The Commodores led 41-0 after T.J. Hall ran 8 yards for a touchdown with 1:49 left in the third quarter.

  • Titans hold off Marksmen

    FORT BRANCH—Tell City had the edge in most statistics, but turnovers and a blocked punt on a muddy field hurt the Marksmen in a 17-14 PAC football loss to Gibson Southern Friday.

    “I think a dry field would’ve helped out both teams,” said Tell City Coach Don Hitz.

    True, but the conditions probably hurt the Marksmen more because they generally throw more passes than Gibson Southern.

    And with a wet ball to throw and little traction for receivers trying to run routes, it was virtually impossible to pass.

  • Kohnert's kills help Tell City knock off Paoli

    TELL CITY—Elizabeth Kohnert made 15 kills and seven blocks as Tell City beat Paoli 25-15, 25-13, 25-14 in volleyball Thursday.

    McKenzie Hayes added nine kills and had 11 assists. Miranda Zuelly had 13 assists.

    Leslie Poole made two blocks and Hana Reed made nine digs.

    Jamie Brinksneader led Tell City servers with nine points. Poole and Reed each served eight points.

  • Commodores fall to Springs Valley

    FRENCH LICK—Perry Central went four games with the team ranked sixth in the state Class A volleyball coaches poll Thursday but lost.

    Springs Valley beat the Commodores 25-9, 24-26, 25-16, 25-14 in the PLAC match.

    Brittany Overstreet served three aces for Perry Central but the Commodores were able to get only one other ace down.

    They also found it hard to block Springs Valley’s spikes. The Commodores made just five blocks, including two by Ashley Gengelbach.

  • Kashyab makes All-PAC team

    TELL CITY—Anjan Kashyab has become the first Tell City freshman to make the All-PAC boys tennis team.

    Kashyab was selected to the nine-boy team last week in voting by conference coaches.

    He played No. 1 singles for the Marksmen nearly all season.

    He was 5-2 in No. 1 singles in PAC matches and 1-0 in No. 2 singles, which he played the first match of the season.

    He compiled a 9-5 overall record. He missed two matches in the Heritage Hills tourney due to sickness.

  • Tell City boys 2nd at Dubois

    DUBOIS—Two Tell City runners placed in the top eight to lead Tell City to second place among 11 complete teams in Northeast Dubois’ boys cross country invitational Tuesday.

    Bedford-North Lawrence won with 54 points. Tell City scored 74, 18 ahead of third-place Jasper.

    Tell City’s Zach Wilson placed seventh in 17:23 and Jordan Alvey was eighth in 17:33.

    Other Tell City scorers were Devin McDaniel, 14th in 17:52; Nick Bower, 22nd in 18:12; and Colton Thomas, 23rd in 18:14.

  • Sears first-year athletics director at Indian Creek

    Sometimes an athletics director is perceived as favoring the sport he was associated with as a player or coach.

    But it would be hard for anyone to say that about Indian Creek High School’s first-year athletics director, as he has been associated with nearly every sport.

    He’s Nick Sears, a 1996 Tell City graduate.

    Sears starred in track at Tell City. He still holds the Marksmen’s school records in the 300-meter low hurdles and 1600 relay and is second on Tell City’s all-time honor roll in the 110 high hurdles and high jump.
