  • Thanks for making arts evening a success

    On Saturday, July 9, the Tell City Regional Arts Association hosted An Evening of Art at City Hall in Tell City. This first time event inside the building included wine and cheese tastings, displays of art by local artists and fellowship by all who attended.

  • Clinton the wrong choice for several reasons

    I would like to respond to the guest columnist of July 14, because I found several areas that were presented that were taken out of context, clearly, to misrepresent what the original author had said.

    The article was to address two basic concerns: 1) the contempt directed at Hillary Clinton; and 2) the reasons that a Trump election would be a mistake of epic proportions.

  • Thanks for support to historic Shubael village

    A big thumbs up to Mulzer Crushed Stone Co. of Tell City.

    Shubael Little Pioneer Village is a nonprofit 501C 3 organization dedicated to historical preservation and education.  We host an open house annually and invite the public to experience life as our ancestors did in the mid to late 1850’s. We also host student groups from surrounding areas. 

  • Moose picnic another success

    Our annual Summer Fest Picnic and chicken and pork chop dinner sales this year was another success for our Lodge. Thanks to the patrons of Tell City and the surrounding areas for their huge support. Special thanks goes out to our fireworks sponsors. We could not have pulled it off without your help. Thank you all so much.

  • Help sought on the road to recovery

    My name is Damon McCallister. I was arrested April 23, 2012, at a meth lab on 18th Street in Tell City.

    At the time, I was in full blown addiction and refused to admit that I was powerless over my addiction.  I sat in the old county jail until February or March of 2013 when I finally realized that I needed help and couldn’t get it on my own.

    I was sent to prison and had many people around who know how to work the system, as well as “old timers” who showed me that this is not the life someone like me could live.

  • Hold politicians to a higher standard

    Most people have it all wrong. The “Rule of Law” doesn’t mean that laws apply to common folk. Heck, even North Koreans have that. Rule of Law means that nobody, especially among the ruling class, is above the law.

    The principle is that the greater the power, the greater the danger; so the greater the accountability. Consequences are greater when rulers make mistakes, or commit crimes, so we have constitutions as a leash on politicians, not on us regular humans.

  • Thanks for the picnic support

    St. Paul Church Picnic 2016 is history. It was a very warm, dry Sunday afternoon in the park. If you didn’t come, you missed a lot of games for the kids, you missed adult games and good fellowship.

    You missed some good food, both in the air- conditioned Parish Hall or some tasty brats, burgers, and dogs in the Park. You missed seeing a very dedicated line dance group, the Silver Steppers Dancers.

  • St. Jude Bike A Thon another success

    Cannelton Elementary recently hosted the 39th annual St. Jude’s Bike-A-Thon May 7, coordinated by Mrs. Charlene Hemmings.

    Students rode 10 miles escorted by Cannelton Street Commissioner David Marsh, showing their support for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. Overall, the children raised $2,204.20 for the hospital by getting sponsors to donate to them to ride in the Bike-A-Thon.

    Each year, Waupaca donates a bike and safety helmet to the student that raises the most money for the charity. This year, we had three students very close.

  • Family thankful for caring community

    A recent diagnosis of prostate cancer and being uninsured left us with many questions and fears. Those fears were quickly changed to nothing but positivity. This small town we call home has shown us nothing but love and support. A benefit poker run was quickly organized by family and friends to offset the medical expenses.

    The enormous amount of prayers, encouragement and donations from most every local business large and small made the event a complete success.

    The entire community backed me and my family with a warm embrace.

  • River Sweep a success

    The 2016 Ohio River Sweep has come and gone!
