  • Cats become growing problem

    In 2007 it came to the attention of the Humane Society of Perry County that there is a growing problem in Cannelton, Tell City and Troy, with feral alley cats. These feral cats that are not claimed are living all over the county and breeding beyond control.

    We have had numerous discussions with some officials concerning this problem and it is now time for those who are in power to act. No one seems to have the perfect solution.

  • Clintons should stick to actual issues

    When Bill Clinton was president, his wife, Hillary, charged that allegations of wrongdoings by him were the result of "a vast right-wing conspiracy."

    But now she and her husband seem to be orchestrating a left-wing conspiracy against her current rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois.

  • Red Sox should repeat

    Many sportswriters are picking Boston to win the World Series this year, which is kind of unusual for the Red Sox.

    When they won the world title in 2004 and last year, virtually no one had predicted they would.

    Even I was unsure last year, as Detroit looked to be a solid contender to dethrone them in the American League, though as it turned out injuries to Kenny Rogers and Gary Sheffield kept the Tigers from even making the playoffs.

  • Tell City defense looks strong up the middle

    TELL CITY - Finding some pitching depth and a catcher to go with the rest of the Marksmen's strong up-the-middle defense are keys for Tell City's baseball team.

    The Marksmen will have their third starting catcher in three years despite not graduating any of them.

    Two years ago Michael DuPre started there as a sophomore, but last year he was unable to catch because he was coming off knee surgery. He is slated to play first base this year.

    Mike Maddle started at catcher last year as a freshman and was second on the team in hitting, but he has moved to Gibson Southern.

  • Mayors discuss government-reform proposals

    PERRY COUNTY - Both of the mayors in Perry County agree government services should be streamlined where possible, but aren't comfortable with some of the recommendations from the Indiana Commission on Local Government Reform, formed last summer by Gov. Mitch Daniels.

    "We all realize that's important," Tell City Mayor Barbara Ewing said of increasing efficiency. "It's a balancing act. Taxpayers in Tell City and the whole state want fair taxation, and deserve it."
