    By LARRY GOFFINET

    TELL CITY—Tell City’s boys soccer team went 0-12 each of the last two years, but the Marksmen did increase their goal total last year from one to four.
    Second-year coach Pat Jarboe expects even more goals this year. He also expects improvement on defense, where the Marksmen gave up an average of 6.8 goals per game last year.
    More depth and quickness are the main reasons for his optimism. The Marksmen have 21 players, five more than last year.

    Jess Cohen with the Vincennes Sun-Commercial penned this story on Indiana’s first paper,  published in Vincennes in 1804 by an enterprising business owner named Elihu Stout.

    Another school year is underway for students, parents and educators across Indiana. Our house is now quieter with our sixth-grader, two high school sophomores and college freshman all heading back to the classroom.

    My wife also returned to school as the librarian, which I always admire, even if it does leave me feeling a bit left out.

    We can all take extra steps to ensure our students are safe throughout the school year.

  • Staff deserves credit for making News successful

    We don’t normally toot our own horn on these pages, but since the Perry County News was named the Perry County Business of the Year by the Perry County Chamber of Commerce at the Schweizer Fest last week, we think this is an appropriate time to salute some of the people who helped us earn this award.

    We have a mix of longtime and fairly new employees on our staff, but nearly all of them live in and are active in the Perry County community.
