  • City needs to enforce its noise ordinance

    Approximately 30 years ago, the common council in Tell City passed a noise ordinance, No. 544.

    As far as I know, it has never been enforced with any warnings or fines. Why?

    The ordinance covers motor vehicles, trucks, mufflers, “music” boom boxes, etc. Noise level limit can be measured on a distance of not less than 15 feet from the noise source. 

    When it can be heard more than half a mile away, I would say that’s a violation.

    Our streets were not intended for hot rodding, drag racing or excessive noise.

  • Thank you, food drive supporters

    To all letter carriers who collected food and other items for the food pantries, we extend a big thank you.

    Also to the people who were so kind as to donate food and other items for distribution to area food pantries, we are very thankful. All donations are given to the less fortunate families in our area. Thanks again to all who gave to this great project.

  • Poppies honor fallen veterans

     “And now the Torch and Poppy Red, we wear in honor of our dead. Fear not that ye have died for naught; We’ll teach the lesson that ye wrought in Flanders Fields.”

     

    From Moina Michael’s poem “We Shall Keep the Faith”

    The red poppy is the American Legion official memorial flower. It reminds us of our fallen heroes while supporting our living veterans. Buy a poppy.
