  • God still stills restless hearts

    By the time I left the newsroom I was ready to rip out my hair or stick a hot poker in my ears.
    All day the noise and commotion drove me to distraction -- and it had been a fairly quiet day.
    I was alone in the pod I share with two other reporters and my phone only rang once.
    You would think the quiet would be conducive to a productive day, but I could barely put two sentences together because of the noise and commotion coming from within, my whirlwind thoughts stirring up fears and anxieties I thought I had put to rest.

  • LOOKING BACK

    November 6, 1986 (30 years ago)
    A 31-year old Bedford man previously indicted for robbery and rape by a Trimble County Grand Jury has been charged in connection with another indictment.  According to the Oldham Era, Franklin Ralph Roark, Jr. pleaded guilty to charges in connection to rape that occurred at Crystal Lake, LaGrange on July 1 of this year.  

  • A dangerous duck

    The phrase “lame duck” was first used in London in the 18th century.  It was slang for a stockbroker who could not pay off his debts.  In this country, it was later used to describe a politician who has lost re-election or is not running again, but who stays in office for the remainder of his term.  In fact, President Lincoln was one of the first to use the term here in the United States, when he said, “a senator or representative out of business is a sort of lame duck.  He has to be provided for.”

    It kicked off with the first meeting of the House Task Force on Child Abuse and Exploitation Prevention, which House Speaker Greg Stumbo authorized earlier this fall to see what more we can do to protect children, whether they are at home, on the playground, at camp or school or anywhere in-between.
