• Annual Colors of Hope 5K run was a success

    The Colors of Hope 5K was held Saturday, May 30. Perfect weather and an enthusiastic crowd of runners and walkers helped create a very successful family-fun event hosted by New Directions Health & Fitness Club.

    We’d like to thank Teri James and Relay For Life for once again partnering with us. Along with her support and the support of others, we were able to make a sizeable donation to the American Cancer Society once again this year.

  • Developers given free land; tax abatements not needed

    This is to the mayor and city council. In regards to the development seeking tax relief for the housing project, they have already been given the lots. They don’t need any more. As a taxpayer for  more than 60 years, I say no. When they rent apartments or sell condos, will they get the money?

  • Thanks for supporting letter carriers’ ‘Stamp Out Hunger’ food drive

  • Nepal earthquake victims need help, prayers

    My heart goes out to the people of Nepal. With much sorrow, there is still God who loves everyone. We do not always understand why tragedies like this happen but as a believer in Jesus Christ there will always be the assurance that God is near and we are able to talk with him and have a relationship with the living God.

    Jesus promised the  “Spirit of truth” which abides in the hearts of Christians. As Christians we should love one another and show a true act of love toward all people on this earth.

  • 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.
