  • Not a fan of politics? Here’s why you should still vote

    I’m not a big fan of politics.
    Yes, I’m a newspaper reporter, whose job is to inform the public about what’s happening in this county, but here’s why I dislike the political process.
    The political stance taken by voters (and non-voters for that matter) is a belief, not to be confused with the verifiable, fact-based truth. It’s a gut feeling supported by partisan voices, as politicians get into she-said, he-said circular arguments.
    If you’ve ever tried to sway a family member or friend to your specific political point of view, you know how stubborn people get. Most have stopped trying.

  • Body builder beats the odds

    Jeremy Decker wasn’t supposed to ever walk again–let alone work out–after a freak accident on a motorcycle in 2010.

  • 'Mad' inmate shatters transport window after court hearing

    An inmate kicked out a window during a routine transport from the temporary Henry County Courthouse, waited until the vehicle stopped, climbed through, then calmly waited by the transport.

  • Watch for signs of hypothermia as temps lower

    It is finally starting to feel like fall; crops are finally starting to be harvested, and it isn’t 95 degrees.
    However, with cold weather comes the risk of hypothermia due to being outside. Hypothermia can arise in both animals and humans, but I want to focus of humans today.
    Hypothermia is a reduction of body temperature below the normal 98.6 degrees and can lead to serious motor-function problems, memory problems and potential death. The symptoms of hypothermia can be classified into two different groups: mild hypothermia and severe hypothermia.
