• Thank you, Doris Turner


    On behalf of the many veterans in our area and their families, we would like to recognize someone that has given 38 years of her life serving the members of Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2939 and American Legion Post 213 of Tell City.

    She deserves high praise for the way she managed both organizations, 17 years with the American Legion and 21 years with the VFW.

    We appreciate the endless hours of excellent service, her dedication to veterans and always being there, her valuable expertise and remarkable selflessness.

  • Deer, not cats, the bigger problem in TC


    I have no way of judging how big a problem feral cats are for this community, but I feel certain a poll of citizens, especially on the south and east side of town, would find that the deer population causes far more problem to flowers, shrubs, gardens and trees than any cat invasion.

  • LETTER: Cal Ripkin League honors true sports fan

    We would like to thank the Tell City Cal Ripken Youth Baseball League for honoring the late Rob Henning by placing a memorial bench at their ballpark.

    Rob had many fond memories of his playing days at that park, watching his son, Tyler, play and later coaching alongside Tyler at Dennis Kress park.

    He loved making apparel for the teams and trophies for their tourneys. It made him feel as though he was still a part of the league.

    The bench was placed in the last place he sat to watch his nephews play baseball this past summer.

  • LETTER: Donations sought for VFW’s Avenue of Flags

    The Avenue of Flags is a project that Perry County has more than welcomed and supported over the past eight years.

    The names of fallen heroes who are our love ones are displayed three times a year for all to see and to share their remembrance. The freedom of our nation is a price paid for by their deaths as they were killed in action defending the gates of freedom.

  • LETTER: Democrats’ ‘War on Women’ sign trying to create local issue when there is none

    Last week a sign with the words “Stop the War on Women. Vote Democrat” was placed at the corner of 12th Street and Indiana 37 in Tell City. It seems local Democratic Party leaders are once again trying to make an issue of something that is a non-issue on the local level.

    The first time they put up a sign it implied that their friends and neighbors who happen to be Republicans did not support our troops. This is an inference that was ridiculous and completely untrue.
