  • Why doesn’t Easter get the respect it deserves?

    I was singing that beloved Easter ditty “Here Comes Peter Cottontail” to my 2-year-old daughter the other day. She thought it was just great, especially when I inserted her and her brother’s names into the lyrics, and she sang along in much better key than mine.

    As I listened to her, I realized that this was one of the few Easter songs I even knew. We had to repeat it to keep going. There was no Bing Crosby CD to mimic. This was it for a 2-year-old.

  • Thieves make off with thousands

    Thieves took an area convenience store for thousands of dollars on Wednesday, police say.

    Maj. Danny Goodwin with the Shelbyville Police Department said five or six Hispanic males were involved in the scheme.

    The group cashed several fake payroll checks at the Convenient Food Mart on U.S. 60, checks that police say were made out to look like they came from area businesses.

    They looked real, but they had the wrong date and some misspellings as well. The suspects also used fake I.D.s to cash them.
