  • Hello, Mr. and Mrs. Corporation

    On June 30, the Supreme Court of the United States sided with Hobby Lobby in a landmark decision that allows the for-profit business, owned by the Green family, the right to refuse – for religious reasons – to provide certain birth-control methods and services for their female employees.

  • ‘Boys’ assemble functional government in three days

    From June 16 through June 21, I had the once-in-lifetime opportunity to attend Hoosier Boys State at Trine University in Angola, Ind., and had the chance to further my education about how our state government works.

    What did I learn that week? Unlike the fear of our “older” generations, our future is not damned. We “boys” were able to put together a functional government in three days.

  • Thanks to all Schweizer Fest supporters

    Schweizer Fest Inc. was organized to manage the organization and implementation of the annual Tell City community celebration. The annual festival has grown since its founding in 1958 into a successful event that attracts individuals – both former natives as well as those passing through – to the community. As the 2014 Schweizer Fest approaches, the organization would like to point out that participating with any of the activities helps to support numerous groups and organizations in our community.

  • Merry Christmas in July from Santa Claus

    In a town that keeps the spirit of Christmas alive and well 365 days a year, the holidays in Santa Claus offer an extraordinary time for reflection. My memories of Christmas are centered on traditions, those we cherish in our families, and those we hold dear as a town.

  • Organizers pulled off great Troy reunion

    A big thank you to the Troy High School Class of 1954 and the homecoming committee for organizing the Troy School Homecoming held June 21. It was so rewarding to be reunited with many of my classmates, some of whom I have not seen for over 50 years. The program was well planned and organized and enjoyed by all. I look forward to the next homecoming in 2019.

    Thanks again for a most memorable day and all your hard work.
