    That we favor the ruling probably comes as no surprise. As journalists, we vigorously defend the concept of transparency in government. But the unanimous ruling released Tuesday, which reversed the lower courts’ decisions, is one that is in the best interests of all Indiana residents.

  • 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.
