  • 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.

  • Perry Central loses twinbill to...

    PAOLI—Perry Central’s miscues on defense led to Paoli’s sweeping the Commodores in a junior high baseball doubleheader Wednesday.
    “They were decent, but we didn’t play as well as we have been,” said Perry Central Coach Denny Hubert. “We didn’t play with a sense of urgency - mainly on defense.”
    Perry Central turned two double plays early in the first game and led 4-2 in the fourth inning. But a dropped third strike with two outs led to two unearned runs that allowed Paoli to tie the game.

  • Jarboe’s goal is to revitalize...

    Pat Jarboe was named Tell City’s varsity soccer coach last winter and has hit the ground running to try to improve the team and its profile in the community.
    Like most of the coaches Tell City has had since starting the varsity team in 2010, Jarboe, 54, did not play soccer in high school, as no area school had soccer when he was in school.
    But he still has extensive experience in the sport.
