  • Tree work in City Hall Park appreciated

    The Schweizer Fest committee would like to thank the fine crew on the Tell City Electric Department for removing and trimming diseased and damaged trees from the City Hall Park prior to the festivities.

    While we hate to see any trees cut down, the safety of all attending the festival is always our primary concern. Too many branches have been falling from those trees sometimes without being caused by weather and high winds.

  • Forget the goofy typos

    Great column, Jake. (Insignificant stories steal more and more attention, June 5 issue). The world is falling apart around us, and so many folks are caught up in silly stuff.

    So Trump typed “covfefe” instead of coverage.  So what?  How many of us have written to our friends and sent out misspelled words, grammatical mistakes and other typos?  I agree with you; is this a national security issue like the Russian debacle?

    If typing covfefe instead of coverage is the worst of Trump’s sins, I would be delighted and relieved.

    John Guillaume and Sweetwater entertained the crowd with their music. Noble’s IGA works with us on the food. So many thanks to the people who come each year to eat and enjoy the day.
