    EIGHINGER: Treat email with respect; DON'T YELL AT PEOPLE

    Unfortunately, I remember the day like it was yesterday and it will always be filed under the "10 dumbest things Steve has ever said or done." Well, at least the "said" part. The exact date escapes me, but it was in the early 1990s when personal computers were more of an oddity than a requirement.

    Nothing lasts forever. Not even ice cream socials. The St. Peter Lutheran Church, located about four miles from Ill. 104 and Five Points on the Kellerville blacktop, is commonly referred to as the "Lost Prairie Church." ...

    O'BRIEN: Skipping out on jury duty is nothing but trouble

    Friday, July 18 2014 7:51 PM EDT2014-07-18 23:51:05 GMT
    For the second time in my 17 1/2 years of living in Adams County, I was summoned for jury duty. I was probably the only one of the 60 or so jurors who showed up for work on Monday bummed that I wasn't going to be selected to serve. I was a juror in a 2006 drug case and enjoyed it. I was the Herald-Whig's sports editor at the time, and it was partly because of that experience that I told myself that if the crime beat ever opened up that I would look into it.
