Illinois mother in local abuse case says she was just as much a victim as the children

Not so sure I'm quick to agree with the statement "whatever they found to be true did not present a risk to the children's welfare." Being a foster parent myself, I watch children on a constant basis be returned to homes downright unfit to be returned to. And I do have all the facts in those cases to make those judgements. You see stuff like this all the time. This is just a fine example of how the system fails children every day. It's extremely sad and a difficult battle to win.

Lawrence Walmart robbery lookout gets two years probation

Unfortunately with all the real guns holding up clerks these days, nobody finds being "held up" funny anymore. And catching another business on fire with employees and patrons inside? Ya, I would call that a crime and wouldn't call it "just some kids trying to have fun".

Bank starts foreclosure proceedings against Douglas County Sheriff Ken McGovern's home

“My own situation has brought me to a deeper personal understanding of the effect the current economic downturn has had on the citizens of Douglas County,” he said. “I and my staff will continue to effectively and efficiently serve the people of Douglas County and in doing so be sensitive to their needs.”

I have to commend him for not being selfish and thinking about how others in the community have been effected by the economy also. Nice of him to recognize the trials ALL of us face during these times and how all situations are a reminder for us ALL to be sensitive to everyone's needs.

I've never understood why things like this appear in the paper in the first place. Since it is, I feel it should have been noted like all the other notices, but feel in no way it should have been highlighted as a separate article. Because, really, all other notices do not have their own story. With the economic times being so hard right now, I don't see how any of us have a place to say something negative about the next, seeing as though most of us are in the same predicament, living paycheck to paycheck just to make ends meet. I can't understand why we can't be a more supportive community. Worry about your own finances.

Police ask for public's help in identifying man who robbed Kwik Shop early Thursday morning

Quik Trips generally carry quite a bit of cash in their drawers, especially during peak hours. If the would be robber was able to time things right, they could potentially get away with quite a bit of cash.

But yet you've had court dates? And no tickets? Now I'm confused. And every time you had a court date, you were wrongly accused? You must have a storm cloud chasing you around!
