  • Remembering 'Mel the Clown'

    For the last seven years, a familiar, smiling – and often made up – face visited the residents of Sunrise Manor Nursing Home.

    West, 80, passed away on June 19, leaving behind many fond memories, said Wanda West, his wife of 13 years.

  • New Haven renames private roads

    At the New Haven Board of Commissioners’ meeting June 19, renaming private roads in the area was one of the main discussions. While nothing was listed on the agenda about the Street Department, Commissioner Freddy DeWitt brought up an issue that New Haven, and the rest of the county, is facing.

  • That's what friends are for

    As soon as he swallowed, Chris Price knew he had literally bitten off more of the steak sandwich than he could chew.

    But, with several friends and hundreds of other people crowded around him at dinner tables at Louisville Slugger Field, spitting the morsel out was not an option, he decided.

    “I was too embarrassed to spit it out in my hand in front of everybody, so I decided to try to swallow it again,” he said.

    At that point, the steak, which had hung together by gristle, was partly down his esophagus attached to more in his mouth.
