THIS MONTH’S PRINT HEADLINES, APRIL-MAY 2012!
Headlines are preceded by the dateline and a brief synopsis of the article, and, in a little twist-up this month, we’re doing them in, not sequential order of front-to-back, but front pagers, then back pagers (which are considered a “second front page”), then jumping back to page 2 and following through the rest of the paper. This one is a 28-pager and has four full-color pages, something it’s our intention to bring you from now on, since we get an awesome processed-color job from our print shop.
LAWRENCEVILLE—Cops say elderly man killed for car and cash—The full story of the death of Robert “Bob” Westall…and the very interesting incidents that preceded it and caused suspicion to come to be upon another Lawrence County man.
SALINE CO.—Murder-for-hire plot charged—Another full story, with many details not published, about the incidents surrounding the alleged murder-for-hire plot devised by Roger D. Young of Eldorado….and what subsequently occurred with his wife, Linda.
RICHLAND CO.—Witness intimidation charged just weeks before murder trial begins—Brandon Jenkins’ trial is literally DAYS away from starting….and, true to form, the Earp clan can’t keep to themselves, or keep from showing their true colors.
ELIZABETHTOWN—Assault alleged on school grounds—Clarification of the incident that happened in late March; it’s not QUITE as bad as we were initially lead to believe….but people are still up in arms about it. Also, the rest of the lengthy article pertains to the ongoing inner conflicts going on within the village of E-town, and how officials are grappling with dealing with it.
HARRISBURG—Analysis: State, gov. Quinn shuffling money for Harrisburg tornado relief-–A run-down of all that almost-$14 million our governor “found” for Harrisburg “relief.” And what the scrambling was that he was going through BEFORE he miraculously “found” this money, as well as where it’s REALLY going to go (hint: it’s not going to tornado survivors. Directly, anyway).
EDGAR CO.—Federal civil rights lawsuit filed against Deputy Dee Burgin; attempts to plant dope on Disclosure vendor—Oh Deeboy. Dee, Dee, Dee. You are dumb, dumb, dumb. You are going to be topic No. 1 on the podcast Wednesday. You are probably going to be facing ANOTHER lawsuit very soon. One out of which your ‘connections’ up there will NOT be able to extract you very easily. You have now been placed on warning. Just like all those signs on Kevin Farris’ property do.
ELDORADO—Juvenile charged in car theft—Bad kid Aaron Rector on a car-stealing spree in ‘rado? Everybody else knew it before Freeman STD told em at the city council meeting……
RICHLAND CO.—Deadline Dec. 31: Committee meets to discuss unfunded mandate; expensive radio upgrade—After all the expense of the new jail, Richland County stands to spend tens of thousands of dollars on radios to get themselves into the 21st century. And we’re apparently the only media telling you about it.
SALINE CO.—Whiny weekender busted for ‘sneaking’ drugs in to jail cell—Amber Dawn Burnett. Being bad bad bad.
SO. ILL.—Primary wrap-up March 2012: Dismal voter turnout shows direction the country is headed—A very detailed wrap-up of the readership area, county-by-county, and how people voted…the ones who did, anyway…..
PSA—A word or two about jury nullification—A jury has the ultimate authority in a court case, including deciding whether a law a person is charged with should even exist. And we bring this up in advance of the Brandon Jenkins trial, in order to tell the prospective jurors: stay strong. You don’t have to give in to the tactics of the state. Some laws are just no good, and people shouldn’t be charged with them.
OLNEY—Late-month meeting sees city moving through budget talks, park improvements—Olney City Council…getting harassed by O’Neill.
SALINE CO.—Post-first appearance seemed traumatic for Fort family and followers July 2010—Fort phone calls from jail in 2010 continue….and oh my are they interesting….

RICHLAND CO.—Doper sympathizer busted for lead foot—Jay Sechrest. Loves the dope, loved by dopers. Probably used by lawmen and others who appreciate his ‘talents.’
HAMILTON CO.—Questions surface over additional felony charged—Here’s a really strange one out of HamCo…you have to read it carefully to understand.
CLAY CO.—White residents charged with possession of meth—No, it’s not got anything to do with the color of their skin. They’re about two counties from home: White County. Why, we don’t know.
SALINE CO.—TASERed after trying to run over trooper-–This is the story of the guy who argued with the trooper over whether he should be in the storm zone, helping without a residence pass or volunteer arm badge.

SALINE CO.—Rapist threatened to kill mother and son—This is a very disturbing tale out of Saline.
SALINE CO.—Accused of impersonating nurse to get tabs—Them damn Lortabs. I don’t even take em when I’m prescribed em. They’re wicked.
