      Speeding ticket from New York? Watch out!

      Scams and computer viruses have a new angle – traffic tickets. Editor Don Whitten, somehow, was ticketed for speeding in east-central New York a little over a week ago – even though he’s never been to New York – and was given a chance to pay his fine by clicking on an email attachment. He declined and explains what additional information he’s discovered about this scam. (July 11, 2011, Page 4)

          Can wordy Faulkner exist in time of tweets?

            Maybe ‘not proven’ should be a jury option

            For many, the Casey Anthony trial has been a daily reality show for months. For others, it’s just a tidbit of news. Editor Don Whitten writes, however, that it’s also a picture of how our justice system works – even if we might need another jury option besides “guilty” or “not guilty.” (July 6, 2011, Page 4)

                    It’s time to give life’s ‘useless’ info its due

                    Minutiae – it captures all of us from time to time, even founding father George Washington. With that bit of info, local columnist Deidra Jackson admits she’s caught up in the Casey Anthony murder trial, which sparks thoughts back to earlier days as a reporter covering cases in court. (June 30, 2011, Page 4)
