  • This time Madison Regatta fought the river and the fans won

    Not this time.

    For the second time in three years, Madison Regatta officials went to war against the Ohio River for control of the Wild Bill Cantrell Memorial Race Course. Two years ago, rising water forced cancellation of the event for the first time in its 65-year history.

  • Kelly battles through rough water to outrun Shane to Governor’s Cup

    Like most people, J. Michael Kelly wasn’t sure if the water conditions would allow racing on Sunday. But in the end, he sure was glad it did.

    Kelly pulled away from chief rival Jimmy Shane on the first lap of the final heat and never looked back, steering the U-5 Graham Trucking to a dominating win in an abbreviated Indiana Governor’s Cup Sunday at the Madison Regatta.

  • H1 Unlimited officials have made a change in the format of the Madison Regatta, opting to go with a series of timed duals rather than a traditional set race. 
  • Happy campers: Tents return to banks of the Ohio

    Dotting the bank of the Ohio River next to the Milton-Madison Bridge, sat seven tents — the first to be allowed in the camping area during the Regatta since the 1970s.

  • United through community service

    Members of the Ulster Project of Madison painted a mural this week on the side of The Old Market on Main, owned by Donn Campbell, a longtime supporter of the Ulster Project.

  • Doing the best she can

    “It’s a secret. I can’t tell.” Geneva Spicer joked that she doesn’t exactly know what the secret to her longevity has been. After celebrating her 100th birthday with a party Thursday at Thornton Terrace, she said she’s thankful, but still unsure if there’s any one piece of advice to offer.

  • ‘Big E’s:’ Good food to go with good people

    BBQ is something Regatta-goers might find a lot of when checking out vendor booths along Vaughn Drive. But, according to “Big E,” you won’t find Loaded Grippos anywhere else.

  • Have hemp — will travel

    Jim and Amy Nicholson say they started selling their hand-made wares at festivals across the country for the simple reason that it would allow them to travel.

  • You can’t have a party without funnel cakes

    Spending your days covered in powder sugar, drinking lemonade and people watching is what’s natural to Jeanetta Stader. In fact, it’s what keeps her in the business.
