Today's Opinions

  • 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.

  • NEA funding has a place in the nation’s budget

    Finally, a common sense appeal for how to deal with continued funding of the arts.

    Former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee explained it best in an op-ed in The Washington Post in defense of National Endowment of the Arts funding. He cites several benefits.

  • When it comes to protecting plants, controlling weeds, mulch matters

    Mulch has become a landscape staple, almost to a fault when it is over applied, smothering roots and girdling trunks. When done properly, it can help to suppress weeds, retain moisture and moderate temperature. These things can be achieved using a variety of materials. But which type of mulch suits your needs best?

  • It’s time to spot seed lawn’s bare patches

    I do not worry about any perfection in our “lawn” around the house. It largely blends into the pastures where we graze sheep and poultry. However, we do need to spot seed from time to time to recover heavy-use areas and around bale feeders.

    The areas we need to address are small, otherwise I would be hesitant to do much until late August.  Spring seeding comes second to the preferred late summer timing for complete lawn renovation or seeding a brand-new lawn.
