    Sports Editor

    BRETZVILLE—Morgan Schuetter pitched a two-hitter and Tell City scored five runs in the first inning to beat Forest Park 5-0 in a Class 2A softball sectional first-round game Monday.
    This was Tell City’s first victory in a sectional game since defeating North Posey in the semifinals five years ago.
    The game was basically decided in the first inning.
    Hayley Fackler led off the bottom of that inning with a single to right-center field for Tell City.

  • Memorial Day needs to mean something to all of us




    The soldiers of the war need no explanation; they can join in commemorating a soldier’s death with feelings of kind, whether they fell toward them or beside them.

    But Memorial Day needs to mean something to all of us. The 4th of July, I believe, we rejoice more as a whole because of our moral and civil independence.

    I remember a time as a scoutmaster, one boy did not believe Memorial Day was set a side to remember the one’s who gave of themselves. A deep shame indeed.
