  • Bucshon needs to host a community open house


    There’s a lot we admire about Congressman Larry Bucshon but we think he’s doing himself and his constituents a disservice by not holding one or more town-hall meetings in the Eighth District. We hope he plans one or more this spring or summer.

  • Supporting our veterans

    State Sen. Erin Houchin

    District 47


    Our military service members sacrifice so much to ensure that the freedoms we enjoy each day are preserved and protected both at home and abroad.

    Once these service members retire or are honorably discharged to pursue the next chapter of their career, many of them face challenges adapting back to civilian life. Unfortunately, some veterans also face obstacles from injuries they sustained while serving our country.

  • PLAC should go to separate track meets

    I don’t believe everyone always has to follow the crowd - if I did, I would not be a Boston Red Sox baseball fan and UNLV basketball fan living in southern Indiana.
    But when all but one athletic conference in southern Indiana follows one format for its conference track meets, perhaps the only one that does not follow that format should consider doing so.
    The Pocket Athletic, Southern Indiana Athletic, Big Eight and Blue Chip conferences all hold their girls conference track meet on Tuesday and boys meet on Thursday the week before the sectionals.

    He walked only one and struck out two.
    “Preston consistently got ahead of batters and only threw 87 pitches in a complete seven-inning game,” noted Tell City Coach Trent Benningfield.
    He added, “We played a very solid game on defense and backed up Preston almost all game.

  • Marksmen repeat as PAC champions

    Sports Editor

    TELL CITY—Last year Tell City had to come from behind late to win the PAC boys track meet by 1.5 points.
    And this year the Marksmen entered the meet without their top 800-meter runner and had no entry in the pole vault.
    But they used strong depth in other events to win the nine-team meet by 42.5 points over runner-up Gibson Southern.
    They won seven events, including all the distance races.
    Senior sprinter Cameron Kessinger won two individual events and a relay.
