After nearly a day of deliberation last Wednesday and Thursday, Walker was relieved to hear that the jury panel chosen for her case did not find her responsible for the attack. The not guilty verdict was read around 2 p.m. on Thursday, March 3.


Letters to the Editor: Readers enjoying 'Homes"' series

Dear Editor,


Enclosed is our subscription renewal and please send another year to Sandra.  We have enjoyed reading “The Homes of History” and hope this will continue and expand to the buildings downtown. Older structures are a challenge to maintain and those who do should be recognized, so “Thank You” for doing so. These articles could serve as a basis for much needed Historical Marker designations some day.
