Today's Opinions

  • Hillary Clinton’s legacy of failure

    Jim Adkins

    Having read Brett Sanders’ letter of the last week, I have to conclude that his rather tenuous tether to reality is coming unwound. His initial premise, that Hillary Clinton is honest, ruins his shot at credibility for the rest of the piece. It is as if he is living in an alternative universe where up is down and bad is good. We are warned of this in the Bible where the book of Isaiah says, “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil.”

  • Parish closings would hurt people, communities

    News that some of Perry County’s Catholic parishes may eventually close under a consolidation plan under consideration by the Archdiocese of Indianapolis came as a shock to many over the past week.

  • Predictability an asset

    They’re calling us boring. I’m not sure if we Hoosiers can take such an assault sitting down, unless it involves eating a bag of chips while reclining in a lounge chair at the mall.

  • Moose picnic another success

    Our annual Summer Fest Picnic and chicken and pork chop dinner sales this year was another success for our Lodge. Thanks to the patrons of Tell City and the surrounding areas for their huge support. Special thanks goes out to our fireworks sponsors. We could not have pulled it off without your help. Thank you all so much.

  • Help sought on the road to recovery

    My name is Damon McCallister. I was arrested April 23, 2012, at a meth lab on 18th Street in Tell City.

    At the time, I was in full blown addiction and refused to admit that I was powerless over my addiction.  I sat in the old county jail until February or March of 2013 when I finally realized that I needed help and couldn’t get it on my own.

    I was sent to prison and had many people around who know how to work the system, as well as “old timers” who showed me that this is not the life someone like me could live.

  • Wyandotte Caves a hidden gem

    For the first time since 2009, both the little and big Wyandotte Caves in O’Bannon Woods State Park are open to the public.

    This past weekend, I joined several folks from the Department of Natural Resources and the lieutenant governor for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially reopen the caves.

    These caves, located in Leavenworth, have been a part of our history for thousands of years. The very first guided tours were conducted in 1851.

  • Presidential politics and Donald Trump

    BRETT SANDERS

    GUEST COLUMNIST

     

    Dear fellow citizens and potential Trump voters: In this appeal to your reason and your civic conscience,

    I will address two basic concerns: 1) the contempt directed at Hillary Clinton, which pushes some of you in Donald Trump’s direction; and, 2) the reasons that Trump’s election this November would be a mistake of epic proportions.

  • Harvest time key to curing onions, garlic and potatoes

    We harvested some fantastic looking potatoes and garlic over the weekend. I am so excited about the garden this year because it is performing so well.

    We need to wait a few more weeks on the onions as we wait for their “tops to flop” which allows them to store better. We have enjoyed some fresh green onion and bulbs, but for the bulk of the crop, we want to harvest and cure them properly so they will store well.
