  • EDITORIAL: It’s now or never for 7th Street’s Obrecht House

    It’s hard for us to point fingers at any one person whose property is in need of repair, but the sorry state of the Obrecht House on Tell City’s Seventh Street is one that warrants community concern and this editorial.

    The home needs repaired and restored or it needs to be torn down. It’s that simple.

    Let us say, up front, that we hope the home is saved and we would be overjoyed if the current owner, Carolyn Barr, would follow through with her pledge, published in the newspaper a few weeks ago, to return the home to its past glory.

  • COLUMN: Tossing a lifeline to those in need

    By LLOYD ARNOLD
    District 74 State Representative

    A story was brought to my attention recently, and I want to do everything in my power to make sure that this does not happen in Indiana. A few weeks ago, a student at Arizona State University was put in a wheelchair and left in the emergency room lobby with nothing but a post-it note saying “I’ve been drinking, and I need some help.”

  • COLUMN: Mother Nature’s working OT

    By VINCE LUECKE
    Editor

    The “longest days” of the year are upon us and if there’s any time to venture out super-early in the morning, it’s mid-June. These early weeks of summer, well, late spring, technically, bring the most hours of sunlight and too many people sleep away the overtime Mother Nature gives to us.

  • EDITORIAL: County council: Rescue group has a lot to offer if you’ll only listen

    They looked a gift horse rescue in the mouth, then failed to act based on what they thought they saw.

    We urge the county council to invite Horse Rescue South to their next meeting, and to listen this time to what they have to offer you.

    As we reported Thursday, you did a lot more talking than listening.

    You missed their offer.

  • LETTER: Thank you to all who supported bike-athon

    The Cannelton Teachers Association wishes to thank everyone who helped and supported our annual bike-athon for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, held April 27.

    This year’s ride was a great success, raising over $4,600 for the hospital. That is the third highest amount in its 36 years. We know that this would not have been possible without the help and support of many businesses, organizations and individuals.

  • LETTER: Traffic speeds too high on Lorainne Road

    I’ve talked to the county attorney twice and he sent an e-mail to the county garage about my request for speed bumps in front of our home on Lorainne Road. We live on a one-lane, crooked, dead-end road, where the speed limit was 30 miles per hour.

    When I talked to county garage employee Steve Howell, he informed me they couldn’t do speed bumps because it may tear up someone’s car. I voiced my concerns of wrecks and excessive speed and that we had small kids in the area and his answer was, “We better keep our kids out of the road.”
