    TELL CITY – The Tell City Electric Department has paid Southern Indiana Power $500,000 for the permanent right to provide power to Perry County Memorial Hospital.

    The agreement, which was negotiated before the Tell City Common Council voted May 7 to end its efforts to annex more than 1,700 acres, comes after the city utility constructed infrastructure to serve the hospital, which was built and opened during the period of time that annexation was being disputed in court.

  • 2A baseball sectional most wide open ever

    The first high school event I covered after being hired as the News’ sports editor May 31, 1978, was the Tell City baseball sectional, so this week’s will be the 41st I have covered. And I believe it’s the most wide open one ever.
    The arrival of class sports in the 1997-98 school year should have made the Class 2A sectional that Tell City and Perry Central competes in more balanced, but South Spencer and Mater Dei have generally always been powerhouses in it.
