Around the Town

In small town America, the information that would not normally be considered news to larger, metro newspapers is what keeps a hometown newspaper interesting and desired among the readers. College honor rolls or graduations, military news, weddings, engagements, birth announcements, community and organization news - as well as the popular Years Gone By column - are some of the many categories covered in this section.

March 3, 2011 - Criminal District Attorney Richard Glaser reports that on Thursday, Feb. 24, the Grand Jury met to consider 38 cases, and all 38 cases were true-billed or indicted. So far in 2011, the Grand Jury has returned 73 true bills of indictment.

Burglars Hit Grill

Deputy Sheriff Troy McNear said burglars used the usual method when they hit Grill 69 last Thursday night. They broke the glass in the front door to gain entry. We would say Tom and Janie Peirson aren't very surprised when burglars enter their cafe because it has happened so many times during the past several years.
