    You can post about an 18/19 year old kid having sex with his girlfriend at the time but you don’t say a WORD about a teacher having sexual relations with SEVERAL students? Ridiculous and disgusting that this paper is run by people who will only write about those that don’t have the “right” last name in Lakeview.

      We only print what is submitted from the police agencies and court system. Until an allegation hits there we do not report on it, it has nothing to do with last names, only the justice system.

      That is funny coming from someone whose last name is Collins…But I agree. What about the indictment that was in the print edition of the paper in mid November?

    Hair pulling can be serious. One Christmas Eve, my aunt came running into the house, bleeding from the head and screaming. Her boyfriend had pulled a large chunk of hair from her head. This was in the days before it was much of a crime for a man to assault his woman. I went over and kicked his lousy ass.
