Our war, our sacrifice
The current COVID-19 crisis is almost unfathomable, scarier than 9/11, more worrisome to America than anything in our lifetimes.

Wild ride ahead
Presidential election years always bring out the voters but there will be so much more at stake than the White House race for Jennings County this year.

The smoke has finally settled as the period for candidates to file for the 2020 election ended last Friday. As always, there were some surprises. Or were they really surprises?

An ounce of prevention
In an unprecedented and extraordinary move, Jennings County School Corp. officials closed Hayden Elementary School for three days last week after the number of absentee students raised to an alarming level.

The infallible president
The president has gotten himself in this entire impeachment mess. There can be no doubt about that. Even his defenders cannot dispute that.

For the last month, Americans have been witnessing a sad chapter in this country's history, first with the House hearings and now with the Senate trial.
