  • Save those leaves for composting and mulching

    Jeneen Wiche

    Weekend Gardener


    Leaf raking is an autumn chore that only children enjoy because they get to undo it in one fell swoop! We rake and pile and they jump.

    I propose a new approach that just may make us all happy: adults can still rake a little, children can still play and trees will benefit from some mulch and fertilizer. At the, farm raking leaves is passé; we let them stay where they fall (with reason, of course) which is usually beneath their canopy.

  • Tell City shut out on All-PAC football team

    Sports Editor

    FERDINAND—No Tell City player was named to the All-PAC football team Monday, but two received honorable mention.
    The team was elected by conference coaches, with no coach allowed to vote for his own players.
    Twenty-nine players made the team instead of the usual 24, apparently because there were ties at several positions.
    Tell City inside linebacker Logan Gaynor and outside linebacker Steven Wheatley, both seniors, received honorable mention.
