  • Improving school safety

    State Sen. Erin Houchin

    District 47

     

    As a parent and a lawmaker, keeping children safe is extremely important to me, especially when they are in school. Indiana has been a national leader in school-safety measures in recent years, and we continue to look for ways to enhance the safety of our schools. This year, lawmakers, the governor, and state agencies have made this a priority.

    Her father, Glenn Etienne, won the boys semistate as a senior in 1990. And girls often have their best season as freshmen.

  • Tell City to feature triple-option game

    TELL CITY—A new era for Tell City’s football team will start Friday with a new coach and a new offense.

    But he cautioned that “we’re still young,” with only eight seniors on the 41-man roster. “We’ll be starting a lot of sophomores and juniors, and we’re throwing a lot at them.”
