Be alert for newspaper scammers

The News and Tribune has received multiple calls about a subject going door-to-door selling subscriptions to the News and Tribune.

The News and Tribune does not solicit door-to-door and anyone doing so offering subscriptions to the newspaper is participating in an attempted scam. Do not give them money or personal information. Instead, call the local police.

Anyone with questions can call the newspaper at 812-206-2107 or 812-206-2108.

‘Parlor Stories’ on the way

At 7 p.m. Sunday, July 7, in the parlor of the St. Paul’s Parish House, one of the historic homes on Mansion Row in New Albany, St. Paul’s Arts Council presents “Parlor Stories: The American Spirit.”

Parlor Stories is a literary and performing arts series bringing together local actors, storytellers and authors reading great literature. The series is inspired by “Stories on Stage” in Denver, “Arts & Letters Live” in Dallas and “Selected Shorts” in New York City. There is a theme to each Parlor Story performance. Several stories are presented around each theme. The stories are sometimes classic, sometimes new; performed by great actors or story-tellers from the area who bring these short stories to life.

The theme for this performance is “The American Spirit.” The performance starts at 7 p.m. and includes an intermission with refreshments. There are no advance ticket sales but donations will be accepted at the door with proceeds going to renovate this historic building.
