  • Knights of Columbus golf scramble helps Special Olympics

    Tell City Knights of Columbus Council 1172 held its annual Special Olympics Charity Golf Scramble April 14 at Hoosier Heights Country Club. The council wishes to thank the sponsors for supporting the event. Without the support of sponsors it would not be possible for it to be a success.

  • Relative strangers

    I was driving my truck along Main Street in Tell City a few years ago when I caught sight of an older, somewhat disheveled man walking along the sidewalk. There wasn’t anything extraordinary about him, just an average guy really, but I noted that as he walked, he held his head low and moved slowly, almost aimlessly. Suspecting that he was depressed about something I reflected on tough times in my own life. Must be down on his luck, I thought as I passed. “Hope things pick up for you, Bud,” I whispered as I sped by.

    It’s been over a year since a storm ripped a small weathervane from my garage roof. I didn’t miss the adornment that much but the resulting small hole in the metal roof has caused me aggravation.

  • Renaissance Club’s lip-sync contest a huge success

    On April 11, the Tell City Junior-Senior High School Renaissance class hosted its seventh-annual lip sync competition in the high-school auditorium. Fourteen groups performed, including one teacher group and 13 student acts. This could not have been done without the amazing support of the following groups and people:

  • Sentences don’t always match the crime

    This is in response to the article, “Tell City man will serve 15 years for child battery,” April 10 issue about the man sentenced to 15 years in prison and five years of community corrections and probation for battering a 4-month-old to the point of permanent brain damage.

    I’m no angel, I’ll admit I made a bad mistake and I’m serving time for it. I got arrested for meth related charges and I’m doing 24 years.

  • Annexation finances simply don't add up

    I was looking through the paperwork sent to me by the City of Tell City and could not help but notice that next year (2015) for Street, Trash and Police Services, Tell City will spend $235,900 to provide these services to the proposed annexed region, but will take in $130,400 in property taxes and $26,700 in trash fees.

    Where is the additional $96,800 going to come from to pay for these services in the proposed annex area? Look in your pocket current Tell City residents for the answer.

  • Assessor: Do what’s right for community

    We are as baffled as Randy Cole said he is that he’s having to fight to get a tax exemption for the former Tell City Junior High School.

    As we reported April 28, Cole appeared before the county council four days earlier to seek their support. There was nothing they could do for him, they said.

  • LETTER - 4-H program benefits from pork-chop dinner, auction

    The first of what organizers hope will be an annual Perry County 4-H Council Pork Chop and Auction Fundraiser April 5 at the Perry County 4-H Fairgrounds was a huge success.

    The Perry County 4-H Council would like to thank the following businesses and monetary donors for their support:
