  • LETTERS: Students share their thoughts on the freedom of speech

    Editor’s Note: Tell City Junior-Senior High School students in Troy Noble’s class submitted letters to the editor about the freedom of speech.

  • COLUMN: Listening to a saint and his deer

    By VINCE LUECKE, Editor

    I’m not that religious of a person but I have an attraction to the lives of saints. I guess that’s a Catholic practice but for me reading about the lives of courageous people who fought and struggled for their faith goes beyond denomination.

    There’s plenty the saints can teach us – about overcoming hardships, holding fast to faith in trying times and refusing to sacrifice what we judge most dear, even when it’s hard.

  • EDITORIAL: Input will shape Tell City’s new comprehensive plan

    A headline Thursday announcing that Tell City will receive a $49,500 planning grant from the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs brought welcomed news. The opportunity to chart the community’s future direction for the coming decade is one not every city, town or county is afforded and will benefit not only Tell City residents but everyone in Perry County as well as those who work or frequently visit Tell City.

  • How to begin resolving distrust in our system of government

    Lee Hamilton, Center for Congress

    The latest New York Times/CBS News poll had bad news for Congress, whose support is down to single digits. But it had even worse news for the Republic. Americans’ distrust of government, the pollsters found, is “at its highest level ever.”

  • Venison can help feed the hungry

    Phil Junker, Outdoor Tales

    People who hunt deer are enthusiastic about their sport, and most love to eat venison. For those who don’t, a number of places are ready to put the tasty, healthy meat to good use, serving people who want it and those who need it.

    Taking an extra deer really is a good thing. It helps manage the continued growth of the deer herd, and it also can help the needy.

  • ‘Immortals’ is beautiful, bloody film

    Eric Harris, Film Review

    Some may have seen the preview for “Immortals” and been excited to see the next “300” since the previews boasted that it was from the producer of that stylized, violent Greek action film. Viewers going in for a movie like “300” will likely be pleased by elements of this film, but “Immortals” is trying for something a bit different. “Immortals” may be produced by someone involved with “300,” but, more importantly, it is directed by Tarsem Singh.

  • LETTER: United Way Day of Caring touched many

    United Way of Perry County would like to take this opportunity to thank the youth, youth group leaders and various businesses and agencies of the community for taking part in this year's successful "Day of Caring" Nov. 6.

    Youth groups joined forces to paint, stain, exercise animals, wash windows, clean, weed and clear trails at designated locations across the county. The free labor provided by our volunteers saved our local nonprofits many maintenance dollars and numerous hours of valuable time.
