  • Turning bad decisions into hope

    I've seen too many men and women arrested, sentenced and carted off to prison not to know the dangers of bad decisions. I've seen them from a distance, and up close.

    I've known people, some friends, who died of drug overdoses, were torn to pieces in accidents because of drugs and alcohol or contracted AIDS due to risky behavior.

    But I've also seen people's lives redeemed, turned around and made better. The road to despair has a turn-around lane.

  • Thanks for making Schweizer Fest a success

    It's over. Two years of planning and hard work by numerous committees and organizations have come to an end.

    This year's 50th annual Schweizer Fest and sesquicentennial are sure to be talked about even 50 years from now for the city's 200th birthday, just as the events of 1958 are still talked about today. When the centennial celebration came to an end 50 years ago, Schweizer Fest was born and each year afterward, the city has been reminded of what makes Tell City the place it is today. This year was no exception with numerous events dedicated to its founding.

  • New Orleans still in recovery mode

    St. Paul's mission to New Orleans in the summer of 2007 was an eye-opening experience filled with tears, laughter and memorable moments that cannot be experienced more than once.

    For these reasons, and many more, St. Paul's 2008 mission was a completely different experience.

  • Memories of former classmates

    Class reunions can create ambivalence in one's feelings. What is the emotional situation? Is the reunion a celebration of our longevity? Is the reunion a memorial for those not with us?

    It is hard for the mind to entertain two ideas at the same time, especially life and death. The most typical response when presented with a dilemma is to choose one alternative and defy a satisfactory solution to the emotional situation. Life and death are a kind of divine conflict - a dilemma to be solved if one is to become complete.

  • Perry County woman makes 471-mile ride

    DES MOINES, Iowa - For years Earlene Preher of Leopold was one of the top distance runners in Perry County, winning several road races.

    But a knee injury a few years ago made her unable to continue her running career, so she started focusing more on bicycling. "Bicycling doesn't bother my knee one bit," she said.
