TELL CITY – The Tell City Junior-Senior High School student council is proud to sponsor this year’s homecoming ceremony Saturday, Feb. 11, before the school’s basketball game against Gibson Southern. The ceremony will begin at approximately 6:30 p.m. with the game beginning at 7 p.m.
David Teague, a senior competing in the 132-pound weight class, was Tell City’s best wrestler this season.
He was the only one to qualify for the regional and semistate and had compiled a 23-8 record before Saturday’s semistate.
Meanwhile Tell City had to have freshmen fill the 220- and 285-pound weight classes, which are generally dominated by seniors, and had no one to put in the 195-pound class.
So maybe the Marksmen should have moved Teague up to one of those weight classes.

Monia thought she was being taken to a small lunch. But inside the Depot, the tables were packed with city employees, family and friends, all grateful for her years of service.

DERBY – The future location of recycling disposal site in Derby is still in question. The drop-off containers currently along Indiana 70 may need to be moved since the land on which they set isn’t actually county property.
Members of the county Recycling Management District had hoped to remain there on a caveat that the section of land may have been owned by the state at one time.
