  • White-nose syndrome affects Eastern bats

    TELL CITY - White-nose syndrome has killed more than a million bats in states from Vermont to West Virginia and has had mortality rates in excess of 90 percent in some of the caves and mines where bats hibernate during the winter. The most obvious symptom of this problem is the presence of a white fungus around the nose of some affected bats.

    The fungus can also occur on the wings or tail membranes of bats. This is a concern due to population densities of bat species that are found in southern Indiana, particularly the endangered Indiana bat.

  • Hot Rebs top cold Tell City

    TELL CITY—South Spencer more than doubled Tell City’s field-goal percentage in beating the Marksmen 58-47 in PAC boys basketball Saturday.

    The Rebels hit 58.6 percent from the field while Tell City hit just 26.0 percent, including 1 of 14 from three-point range.

    “We didn’t defend very well in the first half (when the Rebels hit 11 of 17 from the field to jump to a 29-20 lead) and that’s frustrating because we worked two weeks on defense since our last game,” said Tell City Coach John Hayes.
