  • Readers asks others to ponder 'What they don't tell us'

    The American people have been under attack since the end of World War II when Franklin Roosevelt was lifted from his deathbed to attend the Yalta Conference with Stalin and Churchill where he, with strong objections from Churchill, gave Stalin everything he wanted.

    Except for West Berlin, Stalin was given control of eastern Europe. FDR's action set into motion the creation of the Cold War, which has cost the American people many trillions of dollars.

  • TC boys team has more size, quickness

    TELL CITY—More size, quickness and versatility could help Tell City’s boys basketball team improve on last year’s 8-14 record.

    The Marksmen return only one starter, Trent Gunn, from last year. And only three others, senior Mike Maddle and juniors Sean Flannagan and Shane Weedman, lettered last year, so Coach John Hayes said the team’s lack of experience is his biggest concern.

  • PC girls hot early in win over Cannelton

    LEOPOLD—In a game featuring poor shooting on both sides Perry Central used a hot streak early to beat Cannelton 52-26 in girls basketball Monday.

    Perry Central led only 7-4 after Nakaa Myers hit a 17-foot shot from the wing for Cannelton with 3:21 left in the first quarter.

    But the Commodores went on a 16-2 run in the next 5:41 to build a 23-6 lead.

    The Commodores’ last three baskets in that streak were three-pointers. Hilarie Hahus made one of them to open the second-quarter scoring.

  • Chargers run past Tell City

    PETERSBURG—Pike Central scored 41 points off layups and free throws from being fouled on layups to beat Tell City 60-30 in PAC girls basketball Saturday.

    The Chargers used their quickness with a full-court press that forced 32 Tell City turnovers, many of them leading to layups at the other end.

    “They were really quick and we just didn’t handle the ball very well at all,” said Tell City Coach John Lyons.

    The Chargers also outrebounded Tell City 62-33. They got several layups off their 35 offensive rebounds.

  • PC tops Tell City for tourney title

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central built a 20-9 lead after three quarters and held off a strong fourth-quarter Tell City rally to win 21-17 in the championship game of Perry Central’s eighth grade girls basketball tourney Saturday.

    While Tell City forced some turnovers and got hot on offense in the fourth quarter, Perry Central went cold. The Commodores did not score a field goal and made only 1 of 7 free throws the last quarter.

    But that was enough thanks to their earlier effort on defense.
