    TELL CITY—Gene McCaslin has bowled with his daughter and son-in-law for years, but now he does so in a senior league.
    OK, the Wednesday Fun Follies League at Tell City Bowling Center is not officially for senior citizens only. But since it starts at 1 p.m. each week, virtually everyone in it is retired.
    McCaslin; his daughter, Linda Prichard, a retired teacher; and her husband, John; are the only multi-generational group participating in the league, where each team is just one individual.

  • Former Cannelton resident Hein...

    Readers of the Perry County News’ Facebook page know that I recently celebrated a milestone birthday.
    I usually don’t feel old, though. But one thing that almost made me feel that way was hearing that Jeff Hein, 45, had retired as boys basketball coach at Vincennes Lincoln, though he will remain as athletic director.
    When I started here right out of college Hein was an 8-year old resident of Cannelton, where his dad, Dale, was the boys basketball coach.

    CANNELTON—Cannelton hasn’t officially been a member of a conference for 28 years, since the Three Rivers Athletic Conference fell apart in 1988.
    Several Cannelton athletic directors since, including current one Brian Garrett, have tried to find a new conference for the Bulldogs but without success.
    This year the Bulldogs were members of an informal conference though, the Southern Hoosier Challenge.
