'It Only Takes One to Start a Chain Reaction'


Ramsey Found 'Competent' To Stand Trial

“This is so tragic. My heart aches for his mother and brother, and the rest of the family. I hope that Aaron gets rehabilitation, not just a sentence in the slammer.

Wolfe Park Pool Closes Due to 'Dangerous Weather' Conditions

“For the rest of the day? Really? It is sunny out now. Reminds of the winter when we closed schools before the snow that never came!” –

Long Awaited Traffic Light on Rte. 67 to Start Blinking Soon

“That's typical for logical thinking, someone has to get killed first before statistics decide that an intersection is dangerous enough to have a light put in.” –
