  • Lights back on; cleanup continues

    PERRY COUNTY – The long job of restoring  power to thousands of Perry Countians left in the cold and dark by last week's ferocious winter storm concluded Tuesday evening.

    The next major task, local officials said this week, is cleaning up downed trees and limbs, a task similar to one undertaken after September's big windstorm but made harder by winter cold.

    "Mother Nature dealt the cards and we played the hand  she dealt us," Tell City Street Commissioner Jeff Everly said Monday.

  • SCHWEIZER HALL

    One of Tell City's oldest buildings has been placed in young hands.

    Located in the 300 block of Ninth Street, Schweizer Hall was built in 1859, just a year after the city's founding, and served as a meeting room and social hall for the Swiss Colonization Society.

  • Heart disease: Don't think you're safe

    A killer once stalked me, almost snuffing out my young life. The deadly force didn't lurk around corners, sneaking quick peeks or huddle outside the shrubs in front of my house – watching, waiting.

    This frightening phantom was hiding inside my chest, little by little, growing over many years.

    It was coronary heart disease. The dreaded slayer takes more lives than any other disease in the U.S. and it had my number.

    Aud made 22 of 24 free throws to break the record of 18 made in a game set by Bill Dickerson 35 years ago.

    Center Jesse Stow scored six points inside and Jordan Rhodes was 3 for 3 on three-point shooting (with Stow getting kick-out assists on two of them) as the Marksmen built a 22-17 first-quarter lead on 9 for 14 field-goal shooting.
