    ThePerry County News recently had a story recalling the April 1974 outbreak of tornadoes that rampaged across our region. After reading about and remembering that episode from years ago, I thought I’d write a personal account about a more recent occurrence of deadly winds that tore through southern Indiana. April is tornado season here, and as the News suggested, we should all be prepared for the capricious nature of the weather.

    I don’t have a lot of time to attend auctions but I suspect quite a few people will be interested in one coming up April 30. A variety of items, including school desks, from St. Mark Church’s rectory and former school will hit the auction block at 5 p.m. at Dixon’s Auction Service in Tell City. Several folks from the parish showed me a few of the desks that will be auctioned.

    CANNELTON – At a regular April 16 meeting of the Cannelton School Board, Superintendent Alva Sibbit reported the school system ran a deficit of $9,000 during the month of March. He added, however, that this stemmed from a number of unexpected expenses and some quirks in billing dates from the calendar year, which shouldn’t portend any long-term issues.
