    TELL CITY—It’s not uncommon for an athlete to transfer from one college to another. But Kassidie Hayes has decided to do it before starting college and is switching sports as well.
    Hayes, a 2015 Tell City graduate, signed April 23 to be a thrower for the University of Memphis’ women’s track and field team.
    But she recently had a change of heart and decided she wanted to play volleyball in college instead.

  • Human foozball coming to 2015...

    TELL CITY – The United Way of Perry County will sponsor Aug. 8 what organizers say should be a fun-filled, action-packed game of human foozball. Two teams of seven people, while holding on to a series of rotating poles, will try to shoot-kick a soccer ball through the opposing teams’ goal.

    Just like the table game, but with live people instead of wood figures or paddles. No back flip experience is required.

    The tourney will be held in City Hall Park between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., with each game lasting 30 minutes.
