Today's Opinions

  • A silly dare and a nun

    I don’t have a lot of time to attend auctions but I suspect quite a few people will be interested in one coming up April 30. A variety of items, including school desks, from St. Mark Church’s rectory and former school will hit the auction block at 5 p.m. at Dixon’s Auction Service in Tell City. Several folks from the parish showed me a few of the desks that will be auctioned.

  • RFRA’s quick passage shows state government needs more balance

    When the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate was dedicated in Boston last month, Rep. Joe Kennedy III, great-nephew of the man the institute is named for, made some interesting comments about the way Congress works.

  • Risse is what Tell City needs for progress

    My name is Jason Robert Sprinkle and I was born and raised in Tell City.

    I graduated from Tell City High School in 2008, from Indiana University Bloomington in 2012, and this May I will graduate with my law degree from the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law. I am writing this letter to the editor because I would like to see more young people involved in developing our community.

  • Friends helped couple recover from fire

    We would like to thank the Tell City Fire Department, ambulance and Red Cross for their help during and after the fire we had in October.

    Thanks to everyone who gave before and after Christmas and the Daughters of Isabella for the gift cards. Everything was very much appreciated.

    It’s very hard to get things done without insurance.

  • DAR thanks volunteers, will welcome more

    Members of the Lafayette Spring Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution have been working hard on their veterans project over the past several months. It is a very large undertaking for our small chapter and any help we receive is greatly appreciated.

  • For the media, traditional values still matter

    I have been involved in politics and policy-making for more than 50 years, and as you can imagine I hold strong feelings about reporters and the media. They’re not what you might think, however.

  • We enforce the laws to save lives

    If there is one thing I could urge all motorists – drivers, passengers, front seat, back seat, all ages – to do every time you get in a vehicle, it’s buckle up.

    It is the single-most effective way to avoid being killed in a crash. Would you ever ride a roller coaster without the harness down? Would you ever skydive without a parachute? When you ride in a motor vehicle without a seat belt, you are taking a huge risk. One you can’t afford.

  • Small towns still matter

    In slightly over a year, Indiana will celebrate its bicentennial with fireworks, parades and plenty of speeches in small towns across the state that are quickly emptying and nearly forgotten as a generation or two rushes to fill up larger cities and their adjacent suburbs.
