  • Child Abuse Prevention Month

    April is national Child Abuse Prevention Month, and, with the stroke of a pen made by Washington County Judge-Executive John Settles, it is in Washington County, too.

    On March 3, Settles signed a proclamation declaring April as Child Abuse Prevention Month in Washington County. Now, with April in full swing, a banner from the Washington County Homemakers flies in front of the Lincoln Legacy Museum and posters made by children for the cause hang in the Opera House’s street-side window.

  • Library architect visits

    Washington County Fiscal Court met Monday with a lot of business on their plate and the one word that best describes the meeting: progress.

O’Hagan presented updates regarding current programs, the new library and brought with her a 3D printer to show what it can produce. It was one of two printers the library has acquired and WCPL is one of only two libraries in the state with two printers.

    Tuesday marks the one-year anniversary — a day that marks an act of love, life and sacrifice — for two local residents.

    One year ago, Janice Craig was in need of a new kidney, and if she didn’t get one, it would mean she would have to go on dialysis. Luckily for her though, a kidney wasn’t far away, and she wouldn’t have to spend precious time on an organ waiting list.

    That’s because she would learn her daughter, Lea Ann Lewis, was a match.
