  • Support needed for homegrown biofuels

    Homegrown biofuels are propelling Indiana’s economy forward. Our 14 ethanol   plants not only provide a vital market for Indiana crops, they support thousands of jobs statewide.

    That’s why it is critical for Indiana lawmakers like Sen. Todd Young and  Congressman Larry Bucshon to stand up for the Renewable Fuel Standard, which protects consumer access to biofuels. Thanks to this policy, farmers  get to compete at the pump. And it’s working.

  • Good Friday dinner a big success

    On Good Friday, Brick by Brick and St. Benedict’s Brew Works hosted a fund-raising buffet at the Tell City Depot.

    More than 200 people attended during the day and the funds raised will help Brick by Brick continue its mission of improving the appearance of downtown Tell City.

  • Hats off to dispatchers

    This week is Public Telecommunications Operators Week, an overly complex name for a time set aside each year to thank the people who answer the phone when we dial 911.

    At the front, it’s unfathomable to imagine a leader in modern times deploying toxic gases, even amid a civil war. Many news sources point out that the tide was turning toward Assad’s favor in Syria and the tactic was meant simply to instill terror.

    What he did is reprehensible. And with that in mind, the strikes by American Forces can be applauded, especially for people who couldn’t protect themselves.
