  • EDITORIAL: Late-summer thumbs-up

    The conclusion of a successful Schweizer Fest – Tell City’s 55th – prompts us to extend a big thumbs-up to everyone who helped with the effort. That’s a large group, far too numerous for us to try to list individually or even by subgroups. It nearly takes a community to pull off a community festival and Tell City does it every year. Congratulations, everyone.

    We also offer the following thumbs-up kudos.

  • LETTER: Assistance available for spaying, neutering

    Spay Neuter Services of Indiana is offering $10 spays and neuters to help pets, pet owners and caretakers.

    The half price special is available to Indiana residents with limited incomes and those who receive public assistance.

    Our Pet Friendly License Plate Committee, appointed by SNSI, oversees the distribution of funds from Indiana Pet Friendly license plate sales which make this program possible.

    Puppies and kittens can be spayed as young as six weeks or two pounds at certain veterinary clinics.

  • LETTER: Shame on the thief who stole from child

    I just wanted to say shame, shame, shame on the person who stole money from my daughter and her family, which was in a room with the door closed and should never had anyone been in there to begin with. What happened was it was my granddaughter’s 11th birthday and my daughter had invited people up for that and to watch a ballgame that was playing that day.

    Why would the Indiana Attorney General wade into a United States Supreme Court case over the opening prayers said at town council meetings in western New York state?

  • COLUMN: New school year creates fresh round of opportunities

    By LLOYD ARNOLD
    District 74 State Representative

    Summer break is coming to an end for most students around Indiana. I can hear the kids around our community grumbling about the return of early morning wake ups and having to study again. I have also seen it firsthand as my sons are now running around the yard.

    All good things must come to an end as they will be running from my wife as she attempts to get them in the car to head to school.
    Kids do not usually think about all of the parents rushing to get them ready for their first day.

  • COLUMN: A closer look at religious liberty and Obamacare

    By TY GUILLAUME
    Guest Columnist

    Two articles written in the past month over religious freedom and Obamacare have caught my attention.

    One was written by Brett Sanders, in response to my “Defend religious liberty” article; and the other by Elijah Bryant, dealing with the recent ruling in a federal court concerning Hobby Lobby not having to fully comply with the contraceptive, sterilization, and abortion inducing drugs health insurance mandate under “Obamacare.”

  • COLUMN: New law could mean a fresh start for some Hoosiers

    By RICHARD YOUNG
    District 47 State Senator

    A new law affecting thousands of Hoosiers recently went into effect that will allow the criminal records of those who have been convicted of nonviolent crimes to be expunged.

    This law can make an important difference in the lives of those who have kept their records clean for many years.

    For example, previous felony arrest records can cause a job application to be ignored or discarded during a background check, even if the arrest never led to a conviction.
