    I was in freshman German class at Heritage Hills High School and on one Saturday morning in a 1980s hog lot, I practiced my toddler language on a couple of old German farmers.

    I was learning that their German dialect, passed on from the mid-1880s hadn’t kept up with the modern German I was studying in school. The pronunciation was especially different. One farmer grabbed his suspenders and frowned in disappointment as a I counted to 20 in German.

  • Cheers to ‘Parents Just Don’t Understand’ cast

    Editor’s Note: Letters to the editor normally run on Monday’s Page 4 but we don’t often run photos with them. The letter below thanking students and volunteers for their work on the Tell City High School Drama Club production of “Parents Just Don’t Understand” warrants an exception. It was written by teacher Joyce Stath but her sentiments have been echoed many times over. Congratulations, students, on a job well done.

    March Madness or just plain maddening? No, It’s not the NCAA basketball tourney that’s got me writhing. Baseball season is upon us, too. But in the anticipation of the crack of the bat, the gear up seems like such a let down.

    Whether you are a student studying for your education, a volunteer working to support your community or an employee in the workforce, your attitude towards your task at hand means absolutely everything. 

    Nowhere is your positive attitude more appreciated by others than when you are at work.

  • School yard sale a hit

    Tell City Jr. Sr. High School Renaissance, would like to thank the community for its support and contributions to our annual yard Sale. We had great help from businesses and local members of the community with donating items for us to put into this year’s yard sale.

  • Scouts say ‘Support our city parks’

    Tell City is lucky to have several parks, Zoercher-Bettinger Park, Dennis Kress Park, Hagedorn Park, Sunset Park, Roy Fenn Park, Joe Schaeffer Park, Kiwanis Park and the Greenway Trail. These parks are an important part of our community, offering safe places to play and to get exercise.

  • Thanks for making Boy Scouts’ fish fry a success

    The St. Paul Boy Scouts Troop 192 would like to gratefully thank all those who supported their recent fish  fry  at the parish hall. The attendance was overwhelming. And thanks, too, to those who bought a ticket but were unable to come.

    This event could not have gone off as well as it did without the adult volunteers who gave their time in preparation, brought in desserts and in serving the food.

    The proceeds will help a lot with expenses for this summer’s camp. Thanks again.

     

  • Why the need to be mean?

    Social media is a great thing but in too many instances it has a dark side: a coarsening of the public discourse. Simply put, people who regularly talk to one another, even strangers, politely when face to face, aren’t as civil to one another when communicating electronically.
