  • Amnesty is a good deal for the state and slow taxpayers

    Feel burdened by a debt you owe the state that will be very costly to pay? Now is the time for you to get out from under the burden.

  • Hollinden Shares Annexation Views

    Editor’s note: This report was prepared by freelance journalist Kevin Koelling from a recording Joe Meyer made of the interview he conducted with Councilman Tony Hollinden.


    Joe Meyer, one of the leaders of an effort to prevent the annexation of 1,776 acres by Tell City, invited candidates in the upcoming election to give their views on the border expansion.

    The Tell City Common Council adopted an annexation ordinance in April 2014 despite strong resistance at meetings then and a month earlier.

    Writing has always been an important part of my life. When I was a child, I would write songs and stories, always interested in manipulating words.

    In my first semester of classes at Ivy Tech Community College in Evansville, my professor, Barbara Brown, told me I should go into a career that involved writing.

  • School health fair had dedicated supporters

     I would also like to thank John Smitson and Julie Wooldridge for help in setting up.

  • Feed the Horses event was a big success
  • We should live by God’s word, not man’s

    This is in regard to the Sept. 7 editorial about Kim Davis, (“Clerk who refuses to issue licenses should resign.”)

    I think as a Christian she had the right to stand for what she believes. It’s about the holy word of God we must stand on and not man’s word.

    But not too many people read God’s holy word, sad to say. If God’s people would stand up for the word of God, our nation wouldn’t be in the trouble it’s in.

    “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I shall return there. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away. Blessed be the name of the Lord.”


    Those are Job’s words in response to the calamities raining down on his head. The Old Testament story tells us Job lost his children, property and health, unbeknownst to him, as a result of a wager of sorts between God and Satan.
