  • Two juveniles act like Grinch in MW thefts

     MOUNT WASHINGTON — There’s a Grinch every Christmas and, this year, he showed up in two minors to steal packages from porches.

    Two juveniles, both 15, were charged with theft by unlawful taking after taking packages off the porches of residents’ homes in the Bethel Branch neighborhood in Mount Washington.

    According to Det. Dan Kelty, the minors would wait until UPS, FedEx or USPS would drop off the package to see if anyone immediately picked it up.

    The total value of the items taken equaled less than $500.

  • County will be part of national look at Dishons

     From the day of the mass search for a missing teenager to the final sentencing of the uncle who would admit heinous crimes against family members, there was probably only one media member who was there.

    At every one of the painful hearings. At the jury trial of another individual. At the press conferences when a family was desperately seeking help.

    Little did they, or the world, know that the person responsible for the death of Jessica Dishon in 1999 was also responsible for the sexual abuse of others, including family members.

  • Ugly Sweaters at Nichols

     One of the more unusual Christmas traditions has made its way to Nichols Elementary this year.

    The school hosted an ugly Christmas sweater day as part of a week-long celebration of the holiday season.

    Many students and staff brought out their best - or their worst - in seasonal garments.

    Some wore Christmas ties, while others created their own homemade sweaters and shirts.

    Some sweaters were actually nice, but some were as ugly as could be. Either way, spirits were high and fun was had by all.
