    It doesn’t take too many stops along Charlie Cunningham’s garden tour to figure out the Perry County man has a green thumb. He cares for a large garden, actually several gardens, behind his home off Old Indiana 37 southwest of Leopold. Rows of sweet corn are already waist high. They’ll mature later this summer and several families already have dibs on the roasting ears.

    TELL CITY – There’s no money to be made in trash disposal, at least not at the local government level, but still, the county’s waste management district is there to take it.

    The catch is, “we want your recyclables … we want more recyclables,” said Kenneth Smith, Perry County Recycling Management District director, because that’s what foots the bill for such sanitary services.

  • Linne’s advances to semifinals

    TELL CITY—In the early 1980s there were three men’s softball leagues in Perry County. Many players played in more than one league and also played tourneys nearly every weekend, so they were often playing five days a week.
    In 1984 there were 10 teams in the Tell City Women’s Softball League and four more in Perry Central’s league.
    Then the number of teams of both genders slowly began to dwindle.

  • George will be next Pacer star to leave

    No one should be surprised that Paul George plans to leave the Indiana Pacers as a free agent next summer.
    For more than 40 years, the Pacers have had trouble keeping their stars, especially scoring forwards, throughout the prime of their career. Why should George be the exception?
    Reggie Miller, a shooting guard who played for the Pacers 1987-2005, is the only Hall of Famer or perennial all-star who played his entire career with the Pacers.

    Ettensohn won the age-11-12 girls 50-meter butterfly. She placed second in the 100 freestyle and third in the 50 free and 50 backstroke.
