    At least two more dead armadillos were found in Perry County over the past week, one north of Perry Central and the second near Troy. I was sent photos of both animals and they both were near highways and appeared to have been run over.

  • EDITORIAL: DOJ pushing too far on freedom of press

    A journalist’s job, in the simplest definition, is to ask questions and report the facts they discover from that information.

    If only the driver had seen the turtle sooner. I was driving to Rockport last week when I saw a car crush and kill a box turtle. I saw the passenger reach over and thump the driver in the head, not violently, but certainly in protest to what had happened.
