  • Why do we publish garbage?

    "Why does The Perry County News have to publish garbage in order to sell papers?" a reader asked on our Web site, www.perrycountynews.com.

    I have to confess, the reader was right about us wanting to sell newspapers. Please buy several copies whenever you can, even if you have a subscription. Think of the children.

  • 'A-Team' insanely fun and action-packed

    The original "A-Team" TV show was a bit before my time, so I only know of the group of renegade commandos from the occasional rerun, but more so from the parodies of the show (an episode of "Family Guy" comes to mind).

    I'm pretty sure I'm the key demographic for this film, then, because the film gets so ridiculous at times that you might think it actually is making fun of the old show. This is not a bad thing. It just means that "The A-Team" is aware of what it should be: a crazy, fun action movie.

  • Walks help Coke expand its lead

    The victory raised Coca-Cola’s record to 8-1, increasing its lead in league standings to two full games.

    Marksman Cab and William Tell Woodcrafters are tied for second at 6-3. They were scheduled to meet in Monday’s second game, but it was rained out in the middle of the first inning.

    Coke did have some key hits to go with its walks in Monday’s first game.

  • Krzykowski, Fullenwider win Glen Ress

    TELL CITY—Rich Krzykowski and John Fullenwider shot a 124 to win the 36-hole Glen Ress Memorial Open golf scramble Sunday.

    Krzykowski, the 2004 Schweizer Fest golf champion, and Fullenwider shot a 59 on the first 18 holes to build an early lead.

    They finished two strokes ahead of Tyler and Ryan Griffith and defending champions Erik Lassaline and John Stiles.

    The winning score tied for third best in the tourney’s 22-year history, not counting years when the tourney was shortened to fewer than 36 holes due to rain.

  • Wolfpack nips PC at Conseco

    INDIANAPOLIS—Carolyn Pellman hit a 15-foot jump shot at the buzzer to lift Crawford County past Perry Central 46-44 in a girls basketball exhibition at Conseco Fieldhouse Sunday.

    The teams played a 60-minute varsity game with a running clock after the Indiana Fever played the Connecticut Sun in a WNBA game.

    Perry Central led most of the first 45 minutes, including by four points at halftime, and then fell behind by nine points.

    The Commodores battled back to tie the score on a three-point basket by Lavina Schwartz with 20 seconds left.

  • PC splits with Rebels

    LEOPOLD—Joey Peter had two hits and was the winning pitcher as Perry Central beat South Central 12-5 in the second game of a rain-shortened Teen League baseball doubleheader Monday.

    Peter struck out three, walked three, and gave up two hits in three innings.

    The scheduled five-inning game was ended by rain in the bottom of the third inning. But since the trailing team had batted in the majority of the scheduled innings it was ruled a complete game.

    Freshman Austin LeClere hit a double to back Peter in Perry Central’s five-hit attack.

  • Hair Razors raises record to 4-0

    TELL CITY—Katelyn Kaufman struck out nine as Hair Razors beat Tell City Cinema 8-5 Monday to remain undefeated in Tell City’s age-13-16 girls softball league.

    Kaufman walked only two in four innings. She struck out four in a row at one point.

    Tell City Cinema pitchers did not have as good of control, as Hair Razors scored eight runs on only four hits.

    Logan Flannagan, Bria Gelarden, Kira Maddle and Derrian Zabel each had one single for Hair Razors.

    Taylor Childers had three hits for Tell City Cinema.
