Today's Opinions

  • Golf team grateful for community support

    The Tell City Golf Club finished its first season with a record of 13-0.  The independently sponsored program’s instruction focused on skills learned in the following areas: around the green, full swing, putting, golf rules and golf etiquette.  

    As head coaches of the Tell City Golf Club, we credit the club’s success to having a well-balanced team. We had outstanding hard-working kids who all showed great improvement throughout the season.

  • Don’t disarm the wrong side

    Another mass shooting has rekindled the debate about guns and who should be able to buy and possess them. Omar Mateen pledged support to the Islamic State while killing 49 people in a Florida nightclub June 12. And while he may have been inspired by the terrorist group, and not ordered by them, to carry out the cowardly attack, he was a terrorist in every sense of the word.

    Terrorists should not have guns. But how to keep guns away from those who might do us harm without laws doing harm to those of us who don’t harm anyone?

  • Stuber led hospital well

    Seventeen years is a long time in any position and few jobs in a community are as important as administrator of a local hospital. Joe Stuber has shouldered the duties of Perry County Memorial Hospital well and as he caps his career, we wish him well and thank him for a job well done.

    Stuber retired last week after holding the position of hospital president and chief executive officer since 1999.

  • Dividing iris improves plant health, bloom

    We have all asked the question, “why hasn’t my plant bloomed?” Sometimes the answer is as simple as not enough sunlight, not old enough, not cold enough or hot enough, etc.  In fact, it could be as simple as a little digging and dividing for some renewed blooming attitude.

  • For eligible Americans, voting should be easy

    The elections process is not usually grist for inflammatory rhetoric. But this year has been different. Republican Donald Trump labeled the GOP primary process “crooked.” Democrat Bernie Sanders suggested his party’s use of super-delegates made its nominating process a “rigged system.” For many voters, the intricacies of voting rules quickly became a topic of overriding interest.

    One day in early June, back in 2015, Leonna and I were mowing a lawn up in Burglan Hills. It was a yard that we had mowed oh, I’d say a hundred times before. I wasn’t paying strict attention to what was going on around me. When you have mowed lawns for a living for more than twenty years it all seems to blend together.

  • Summer equals bluegill time

    Summer has officially arrived, according to the calendar. The thermometer also agrees.

    Daylight is shrinking a bit each day, however temperatures will continue to warm, maybe heat, for the next two months.

    To catch fish midsummer requires a different mindset than one employs during spring, fall, or winter. Like people, most fish slow down and head for a cool, shady spot on hot sunny days;.
