  • Stemple, Wildcats overpower Tell City

    MOUNT VERNON—Tell City couldn’t get its offense going consistently and couldn’t stop Jason Stemple as the Marksmen lost to Mount Vernon 43-6 in football Friday.

    Mount Vernon got out to an early lead after a stalled Tell City drive. Stemple drove the Wildcats down the field and connected with wide receiver Aaron Straub for a short touchdown pass.

    Stemple ran for the two-point conversion, giving the Wildcats an 8-0 lead.

  • Raiders stop Marksmen's attack

    TELL CITY—Tell City couldn’t get its spiking attack going consistently as it lost to Southridge 25-12, 25-21, 25-11 in PAC volleyball Thursday.

    The Marksmen were playing shorthanded, with McKenzie Hayes (mild concussion) and Leslie Poole (hamstring) both sidelined by injuries.

    “We had a lot of people out of position, especially in the back row,” said Tell City Coach Dalonda Hayes.

  • TC boys shooting for semistate

    TELL CITY—Tell City boys cross country coach Chris Hollinden thinks only two teams from the Jasper sectional will make it to the semistate this year, and he thinks his squad has a good chance to be one of them.

    “Perry Central is the overwhelming favorite in the sectional,” said Hollinden Thursday. “We should be second—it should be between us and Jasper. They beat us by one point today. Heritage Hills and Forest Park could be there too—we’re all pretty close.”

  • Marksman girls team lacks depth

    TELL CITY—Sarah Goffinet gives Tell City’s cross country team a strong No. 1 runner again this year, but the Marksmen are lacking in depth.

    Goffinet won the PAC and sectional meets last year as a freshman and placed 10th in the semistate to qualify for the state meet.

    She took up where she left off last year in Thursday’s season-opening Forest Park invitational, winning the race in 21:51.

    Other letter winners returning from last year are Andyn Rowe, Brittany Waninger, Mariah Nix and Erika Hauenstein.

  • Orleans overtakes PC in five games

    ORLEANS—Orleans overcame a 2-0 deficit in games to beat Perry Central 23-25, 23-25, 25-18, 25-9, 15-12 in PLAC volleyball Thursday.

    “We played really well the first two games,” said Perry Central Coach Becky Genet. “And the next two games we couldn’t do anything right. We were hitting balls into the net and hitting balls out of bounds.”

    Perry Central built a 6-0 lead in the fifth game but again had some errors after that.

  • Floodwall review has steep price

    CANNELTON - Cracks have been repaired in the floodwall at Cannelton, the city's floodwall custodian reported during a regular meeting of the board of public works and safety Aug. 10, but a costly inspection is required, if someone can be found to support it.

    Jerry Ball, better known as sewer-department superintendent for the city, reminded the board, as he explained in February, that the Federal Emergency Management Agency wants the floodwall to be accredited.

  • Horse-rescue group seeks assistance

    PERRY COUNTY - They do what they do out of their love of horses, but they could use some help.

    Pat Reed and Jo Sodrel launched an effort 15 years ago to start protecting the horses of Perry County. Because the problems of neglect, abuse and lack of education haven't gone away, they've relaunched and expanded their efforts. The problems are bigger than they and the few working with them can handle, however, so they're reaching out for help.

  • Rescue group's needs offer varied giving opportunities

    PERRY COUNTY - Their list of needs is long and varied enough that just about anyone can find something to give to the Perry County chapter of Indiana Horse Rescue.

    Those who can give small cash donations should look for the group's cans at various locations around the county.

    Donations of larger amounts or of hay or other feed, medical supplies, fly spray, halters or "anything to do with horses" would be welcomed, said Pat Reed, one of the group's investigators.

  • Three join elementary faculty at Perry Central

    During a separate meeting Monday, the board heard no comment on the district's proposed 2010 budget and sent it toward a September adoption.
