  • COLUMN: Anderson Woods provides ongoing teaching moments for campers

    Editor’s Note: This is one of a series of articles about Anderson Woods, a summer camp near Adyeville for children and adults with developmental disabilities. The columns are written by Megan Gatwood.

  • LETTER: Proposed animal control ordinance flawed

    I am writing in regard to the proposed Animal Welfare and Control Ordinance No. 0C-05-4. I read all 39 pages of it four times. It took that many times for me to fully understand what all is hidden in the lengthy legal jargon.

  • COLUMN: A mission worth sharing

    By RYAN HACKBARTH, Guest Columnist

    My name is Ryan Hackbarth and I will be a senior at Tell City High School. Sister Mary Emma Jochum OSB asked me to write about a recent mission-trip experience.

  • COLUMN: Cheers for Schweizer Fest

    By VINCE LUECKE, Editor

    Another Schweizer Fest is in the books and although I pen this Friday afternoon with forecasters calling for rain Saturday, the weather Wednesday through Friday was picture-perfect. We certainly need any rain that falls, but with any luck it held off until the festival was over.

  • EDITORIAL: Tell City still has a musical heart

    It goes without saying that there is quite a talent pool in our area. The annual talent show at Schweizer Fest and the Shooting for the Stars contest in the summer are just two of the many opportunities residents get to show their stuff.

  • LETTER: Company wrong about gasification impact

    No significant impact on the environment? That is what Indiana Gasification wants us to believe about the amount of pollution that will be produced by the proposed synthetic gas project.

    They compare the amounts of pollution to coal-fired electric plants in the area. Of course they are going to have less pollution than any of the AEP, Vectren or Duke Energy power plants.

    We understand that these power plants burn the coal that is used and that the syngas plant will use the coal in a chemical process. But there will be pollution released into the atmosphere.

  • COLUMN: Achieving Dr. Bosler’s dream

    BY REBECCA FENN, Guest Columnist

    When I returned from vacation recently, I was saddened to read of Dr. Bernie Bosler’s death. While I didn’t know him well, I was always impressed by his sincere interest in the well-being of our community. When we would run into each other at the post office, he always asked me how things were going with United Way and it wasn’t just a polite question – he really cared.

  • COLUMN: A much-needed vacation

    By VINCE LUECKE, Editor

    I’m usually not all that keen on summer getaways, at least as far as lying next to a pool or perched under a cabana drinking tequila.

    Beer commercials and cruise-company propaganda make it tempting to devote my vacation time to sand and surf, but I’ve seldom taken summer beach vacations. It’s hard getting away during the summer months. Other co-workers often take off during the summer and I’d rather spend time outdoors when the weather is more comfortable.
