  • When will the annexation fight – and expenses end?

    The split in ideology expressed by members of the Tell City Common Council shows the complex nature of the ongoing legal battle over annexation. The camps are set by the old guard leadership which were in place when proposals were launched and newer officeholders who have said they will side against expensive fights.

    It’s long been the quandary, to be or not to be, but at this point the acquisition, mired in a fight with residents within the affected 1,776-acrea area, is so muddied, it begs the question as a reminder, why are we doing this?

  • Spider-Man: Homecoming, a smart movie in the series

    Spider-Man has always been a comic book character I’ve been lukewarm towards. The wise-cracking friendly neighborhood Spider-Man just never seemed as cool to me as Wolverine or other more violent and dark heroes. Despite that, I liked the first “Spider-Man” movies with Tobey Maguire directed by Sam Raimi (the third was my least favorite, but I don’t hate it like many other fans do). I don’t consider them sacred or anything, but they set the standard for what a comic book movie could be.

    One day missed in the vegetable garden can mean a big harvest, literally.  All of a sudden, or so it seems, your zucchini is the size of a torpedo and beans are bulging beneath the pod.

  • Arts Night at City Hall a big hit

    An Evening of Arts event was held at City Hall on July 8, hosted by Tell City Regional Arts. A large crowd throughout the night enjoyed the displays of many talented local artists, as well as wine and beer sampling and light snacks.

    On behalf of Tell City Regional Arts Association, I would like to thank Mayor Jim Adams and the Tell City Common Council for allowing the event to be held once again in City Hall.

  • As legislators consider alcohol law fix, put consumers first

    This editorial was first published by KPC News Service.

     

    After years of teasing Hoosiers that they might reform Indiana’s liquor laws, state legislators seem ready to get serious this summer.

    A new study commission will begin unraveling our complicated tangle of statutes governing how alcohol is sold. The task is so formidable, the commission is being given two years to do its work.

    The 2017 Schweizer Fest, Aug. 9-13, is just around the corner. It’s my favorite week in Tell City and has been since I was a kid.

    Mid- to late-summer weeks are a busy time for many of us with vacations, back-to-school preparations and, for many, just completed 4-H fairs. However, Schweizer Fest is the county’s largest festival and nearly all of us take part in it one way or another.

    Progress is a double-edged sword. While we might hate paying the costs – especially when it comes to the use of our hard-earned dollars – we benefit from the results.
