  • Archers name disappearing from seventh, eighth grades

    When Tell City Junior High School opened in 1980, many parents felt that the sports teams there needed their own identities, separate from the high school.
    After all, the seventh and eighth grade teams from Tell City schools before had included the St. Paul Saints and Hoosier Heights Wildcats (Newman, the third junior high feeding into Tell City High School before 1980, had no team nickname).

  • ‘Machete’ started as fake preview

    “Machete” started as a joke, in a way. It was one of the fake movie previews from Quentin Tarintino and Robert Rodriguez’s “Grindhouse” double feature. Rodriguez claims he always thought of it as a feature, but the fact is the preview was made before the feature film, which is definitely odd. Either way, I am very glad that they ended up making a full movie out of the idea.

  • Free on the inside
