    Neat began preaching at the church last Sunday but last Sunday wasn’t his first time preaching at Sunrise Christian Church. Neat said he has already preached there 26-27 times as he has held revivals there in the past.

  • When I was 9 years old

    Before the critics who say “We don’t care about life in Tell City” cringe for another life story, this isn’t about when I was actually nine. But I could write about when I was 9 because it was really interesting and exciting with the adventures of a young boy growing up in a river town with his two brothers and a sister in a house on the cliff over looking the Ohio River.
    The NBA finals began on Tuesday night and since I turn this in to the paper before the game is played, I have no clue who won or how the game was played.  

  • Hometown has much to offer for summer fun

    Summer’s here and the time is right, for dancing in the street.
    That’s right, it is definitely summertime in Harrison County.
    Summer, when I was younger, was without a doubt my favorite time of the year.
    Summer meant no more school for a few months and, to be honest, that was the bulk of why I chose summer as my favorite time of the year.
    Now that I am older, I guess fall would be my favorite time of the year due to it being the time of hunting.
    However, for the sake of the column, I will focus on summer and not what I prefer.
