THIS MONTH’S PRINT HEADLINES, JANUARY-FEBRUARY 2017
Technically, this is our first issue of the new year, although we've just taken the January Special Edition (out December 28) off the stands, replacing it with the January-February 2017 issue...so think of it as your first paper under our new president.
This article is Print Headlines for those who aren't familiar with how we do things. Print Headlines gives you the rundown of what's in the current edition on stands, along with links to the e-Edition if you're astute enough to have an online membership. Print Headlines are presented in order of appearance in the paper for the most part: Front Page, Back Page (our second front page), Pages 2 and 3, Pages 12 and 13 (Features, if any), Egypt, Heartland, Central, and out of place is Op-Ed. They are shown here by dateline first (the location where the material included in the article took place), headline with link to the e-Edition, and then a brief synopsis in our own snarky Disclosure style.
And now with out further ado...here's THIS MONTH'S PRINT HEADLINES!
JASPER CO. - Willow Hill man charged with serious sex crime: It was a bad month for 67-year-old guys who may or may not have had allegations of sex abuse against children haunting them from the past. Here's the first.
SALINE CO. - Charged with multiple sex offenses: The second 67-year-old to get in trouble on a sex allegation, right around Christmas time, which we've already covered on the free side...but not this extensively. Find out what all those griping family members were worried was going to come out.
CLAY CO. - Deputy's brother arrested for dope: The second month in a row where a law enforcement officer's brother has been busted on a meth charge. There are black sheep in every family.
SALINE CO. - County clerk to be sued if she doesn't comply: Every mainstream media outlet covering this story has gotten it wrong; we, however, did not. We've been watching this county board development for about two years now. Something's going on. We're hoping the county board gets to the bottom of it.
RICHLAND CO. - Case filed against teen may NOT be what it appears: This is the follow-up to the front page story in the January Special Edition...and it appears there are shenanigans afoot. And the bottom line is...if those employed by the school system would TAKE CARE OF THE KIDS UNDER THEIR CARE, we wouldn't HAVE idiotic things like this happen. But noooooooo...errbody's gotta be a special snowflake.
PALESTINE - Execution of warrant leads to request for second; dope items lead to arrest of two: This one broke on deadline and because of the extensive haul by the Palestine Police Department, we opted to give it big play. GOOD JOB, GUYS!
EDGAR/SALINE COs. - RIDES MTD in Harrisburg loses round 1 in Edgar County suit: Notice this is round one. This is likely going to drag on and on and on...and it's all Chris Patrick's fault. Someone involved in this should sue HIM.
WHITE CO. - Bizarre behavior, selling items from car, prompts arrest of Carmi man: This one was so amazing, we opted to put it on the back page. I'm sure there are decent people in/around White County named Swango...but every one of them WE get to hear of, via charges or arrest reports, are, well...um. Yeah. Moving on.
CRAWFORD CO. - Small Claims in Crawford test what's in people's wallets: We're trying out something new. We've noticed there are a LOT of Small Claims filings lately, generally welching on a contract or credit card default. So we're going to start producing them per county. This one is Crawford's...which is extensive.
JASPER CO. - End of 2016/first of 2017 Small Claims filings: Jasper County: Same deal with Jasper...and there are quite a few of these, too.
SALINE CO. - Foil of meth spilled on floor sparks domestic violence: This article was so egregious, we opted to place it on Page 3...just for you.
WILLIAMSON/JACKSON/SALINE COs. - Plenty of reality checks for movers & shakers: Did you like playing connect-the-dots when you were a kid? You know, where you were told to follow the numbers by drawing lines between them in sequence, and it made a big picture? Well that's what we've going on here...and the picture is becoming clearer. And when you read where it starts and where it's lead to...it's going to either frighten, offend, or amaze you.
RICHLAND CO. - Memorial funds addressed; and, questions about Ramey's mom surface: Is Hannah Gilliland dead? We've not been able to find anyone who knows definitively, largely because the death was supposed to have happened outside the state. So we're covering that here in a Ramey follow up...as well as answering questions about what's been done with the massive amount of funds raised for Sabrina Stauffenberg's funeral.
SALINE CO. - Anna Bixby alleged felon gets more traffic citations; bond still not revoked: Wondering what it's gonna take to get a mugshot of Terrie Eichorn. Of course, it's entirely possible that Saline County doesn't want to take it...she might break the camera.
SALINE CO. - Barefoot escape of West Frankfort man short lived: Been a lot of Franklin County crims getting in trouble in other counties lately. Here's another.
SALINE CO. - Harrisburg 'Gypsy' facing drug charges following traffic stop: At least our cops are still MAKING traffic stops...
HARDIN CO. - Decision to be made about babydaddy in Hardin County: This one has already caused a spat here on the site. Here's the deal, folks: If you're a 20-nothing and trying to live off the taxpayer, be it by public aid or "working" for a now-defunct publicly-supported entity, and you can't figure out who your kid's father is...WE'RE GONNA WRITE ABOUT IT.
GALLATIN CO. - Harrisburg repeat drunk driver busted for DUI in Shawneetown: The drinking-and-driving report out of GallCo has a crossover. Gotta love it.
e-Edition Xtra SALINE CO. - Need for clean home may have prompted Big John's shoplifting incident: Oh yeah, did I mention we overwrote? We have a lot of e-Edition Xtras. Here's the first.

SALINE CO. - Tip from Brad at Big John's lands wanted Harrisburg woman behind bars: Big John's was apparently the the place to allegedly thieve this past month.
SALINE CO. - Raleigh man charged with molesting young boys: A lot of people have been waiting for this article. There's not been a lot of material made available about it, and he'll probably end up with a plea...but here's what we know.

SALINE CO. - Forged check may have been stolen from local garage during servicing: This alleged theft...it wasn't even clever.
