  • Most cultures have their share of comfort foods that seem to make a bad day better. Or perhaps they evoke feelings of family or special holidays. The trouble with most comfort foods is that they tend to be carbohydrate-laden, high-calorie items that can pack on the pounds, something you may not want to do after making healthy resolutions.

    There are ways to turn favorite comfort foods into healthier options that still satisfy. Consider these modifications to foods you love.

  • The arrival of the New Year brings with it many things besides just a turn of the calendar. A time for reflection, resolutions and looking forward, the New Year represents a clean slate, one many will welcome after a rather tumultuous 2009.

    Another image the New Year invokes is that of winter weather, replete with its short days and snowstorms. While the official arrival of winter is 10 days before the turn of the calendar, for many the unofficial start of the coldest season is when the holiday season ends and the new calendar year begins.

  • The gathering Bruce and Danielle Collins hosted at their home Tuesday evening was no ordinary house party.

  • TELL CITY – Kathy Richmer didn't believe the news a surprise caller delivered Wednesday evening, even though the message came from a white-bearded man dressed in a red coat.

    "You just won a new Camaro," Santa Claus said from the upstairs council chambers at City Hall.

    "Oh, I guess I'll take that," Richmer replied. It took a couple more minutes of convincing for Richmer to accept that the call wasn't a hoax and she was overcome with emotion as she walked into the city council chambers at City Hall, packed with police officers.

  • Tell City firefighters joined hands with Santa Claus Saturday to brighten the holiday for 20 local youngsters, delivering presents to wide-eyed children. In turn, parents and even firefighters wiped the occasional moist eye.

    It was the fifth year for the department’s Christmas for Kids project. Firefighters raised money at area stores, placing out their boots and asking customers to fill them with donations. Other contributions come from people in the community, Chief Greg Linne said, including sizable gifts from two families.

  • TELL CITY - A new staff member has been welcomed to Tell City's post office. Dan Schroeder accepted the position of postmaster Sept. 5 and started two days later.

    "From day one I knew I wanted to be a part of this community," he said.

  • TELL CITY - The lights were dim and bottles of wine were placed in buckets of ice to chill. Tables were covered with linen cloths and silverware had been laid out neatly at each place setting.
