  • Murder trial pushed back to April

    The jury trial for a Loogootee teenager charged with fatally shooting a couple living near his home has been pushed back to April.
    The trial for Clifford Baker was reset during a hearing in Fayette County Circuit Court last Wednesday, after Fayette County State’s Attorney Stephen Friedel said he needed time to review two pending motions filed by Baker’s attorney, Monroe McWard of Taylorville.
    McWard has filed a motion asking for the suppression of statements made by Baker after he was taken into custody.

  • Carson, Porter kicked off ballot

    Two days after hearing testimony from several individuals, a St. Elmo electoral board ruled that incumbent aldermen Lloyd Carson and Jayson Porter would be taken off the April 5 municipal election ballot.

  • Carson, Porter kicked off ballot

    At this point, incumbent St. Elmo aldermen Lloyd Carson and Jayson Porter are not on the April municipal ballot.

    An electoral board in that community released its ruling on Friday in which it sustained the objections to the nominating petitions filed by Carson and Porter.

    Rita Davis, Carson's opponent in April, objected to his petition, and Lyle Haslett objected to Porter's petition. Both objections stated that the incumbents should not appear on the ballot because their petitions did not contain enough signatures.

     “Sneaky Pete,” The Wily Wolf, Is Back
    A few weeks ago, cousin Pauline Tackett called with a sighting of “Sneaky Pete,” the wolf.
    He made a late-night call at her back deck area to the pen of her dog, Sally Jo. Sally Jo was in a barking frenzy until he finally left, not liking the brilliant spotlight Pauline shined on him.
