THIS MONTH’S PRINT HEADLINES, JUNE-JULY 2012!
Here are your print headlines for the current print edition, on stands beginning today, June 11, and continuing through tomorrow, Tuesday, June 12, 2012. Each print headline is preceded by the dateline (location where the subject of the article occurred) and then a brief synopsis of what the article is about.
Deliveries for this print version will begin in South Counties today, and continue in Central and North counties (both east and west) tomorrow.
HARDIN CO.—Sheriff more worried about media than inmate misdeeds: Sheriff Joyce is certainly making a name for herself in her first couple of months on the job. ISP thinks so, too.
BILLETT—Cop nearly kills another driver: Billy “PeeWee” Darnell, proving what the Bard meant when he wrote “Methinks he doth protest too much.”
NEWTON—Biofuel plant in trouble?: Some problems emerge with Newton’s new venture from Blue Northern Energy; plant officials are saying everything’s under control, however.
XENIA—Arrogant trustee will not resign: Anyone who thought Daniel Edgington wasn’t offensive enough before this article will certainly have a change of heart AFTER they read it.
EDGAR CO.—Deputies lose civil strip search case: More repugnant behavior on the part of law enforcement officers. This time, two were told by a jury to pay up for it.
HARRISBURG—’Losing’ coach still employed at school: Jay Thompson. He’s got problems, that’s for sure.
CARBONDALE—Authorities closer to charges in killing; shot in dispatcher’s home while he slept: The sad story of Molly Young…and if you thought the story was outrageous so far, wait til you read THIS.
LAWRENCE CO.—Hootie the One-Eye pimp in DOC til 2017: Finally. Derek “Hootie” Wells sent away to do a meaningful sentence. We think, anyway.
JASPER CO.—Offensive smell lands one man behind bars: We don’t know what old dude had in the big garbage bags, but the police department didn’t care for it very much.
SALINE CO.—Marion men busted with cutting torch: Well…and some cut steel, too. Right out of a field.
CLAY CO.—Child porn details shock rural community: Warning to alleged child porn collectors: whatever you do, don’t get into “work rage” and threaded your family to the point that your wife takes out an OP on you….because if you have porn on your computer, someone’s bound to find it at that point.
HARRISBURG—Cocaine dealer could possibly spend the rest of his life behind bars: Coverage of the latest Moss to be caught being bad.
CRAWFORD CO.—Nearly sent to prison for shooting the sofa: I would say this guy has snagged the “stupid criminal” award this month….but there are oh so many others contending for the title.
SALINE CO.—Fort tries to “put the pieces together” over why he was even charged: The Todd Fort jailhouse phone calls continue, this month with Fort whining over how “the state police has taken over the sheriff’s department.”
SALINE CO.—Suspect: ‘K2 is legal,’ Officer to suspect, ‘No, actually it’s not’: with a headline like that, do we really need any further elaboration?
HAMILTON CO.—Heils featured in recent Hart heist, dope haul: There are two Heils; don’t know if they’re related, but they’re both in trouble.
SALINE CO.—Meth lab and unidentified bones found in housing: We were tipped to this story about Rachel Celestino when it happened; here it is.

GALLATIN CO.—All-on-the-same-day plea deal for former prosecutor’s brother spurious at best: Nathan Dobbs got in trouble last year. Then suddenly, he’s in DOC….kinda like it’s an afterthought.
SALINE CO.—Three-year-old lets cops in while junkie is passed out at kitchen table with infant on the floor: Lotta this going around; this is a compilation article about doping in Saline County.
HARDIN CO.—Accused of drugging sex abuse victim: A combined story about a young gal from Hardin who allegedly gave dope to a 15-year-old, then had sex with him or her (it’s not made clear, and as you know, anything goes these days) and a young guy who’s really into his alkyhol…and neither one of them blocked us from their Facebook pages after they were charged.
OLNEY—Saddle Club showdown at city council meeting: Coverage of Olney’s May meetings, wherein people are starting to get mad and take names. Too bad they’re not holding the mayor and police chief accountable for the egregious waste of money that was the Brandon Jenkins trial.
EDWARDS CO.—Busted for growing weed at him; flood to a trickle: Mike Valentine doing a fine job curbing the drug epidemic in Edwards.
LAWRENCE CO.—Meth appears to be exploding all over Lawrence County: Whereas it appeared some of it was getting under control, now it’s seemingly back OUT of control…with not explanation as to why.
