  • Tell City 78, Cannelton 30 Saturday, Nov. 28

    I want my grandchildren and yours to experience this.  It won’t be exactly the same because the schools are different, the times are different, but the thrill can be the once in a lifetime experience that I remember.  

    When I was growing up in Tell City, Ind., a small river town in the southern part of the state, 30 miles from Owensboro, high school sports was king. Tell City isn’t all that small, about 10,000 people in its most populated time, but it is not all that big either.
