  • INDIANAPOLIS – Gov. Eric J. Holcomb today issued a disaster emergency for 11 Indiana counties in response to widespread flooding and infrastructure damage caused by sustained heavy rainfall.
  • Treasured memories of young mother lost
    Brutally honest, ambitious, inspiring. The family of Teelah Kappeler can recall easily what they loved most about her and what memories they never want to forget.

    Those who loved her will pay tribute to her today at a memorial service at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Madison.
  • As Ohio River waters rise with the incoming flood, Carrollton Utilities began preparations by shutting off gas meters at riverfront residences in Milton. Rural residents and local businesses will be without gas from Carrollton Utilities until water levels begin to lower.
  • Local farmers contribute to Madison FFA
    County farmers Tony and Lisa Hammock directed $2,500 to Madison FFA as part of the America’s Farmers Grow Communities program, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund.
  • Senior Dance: The Madison Parks Department will host a dance featuring the music of Alliance at 6 p.m. at the Brown Gym. Doors open at 5 p.m. Admission is $5. For more information, call (812) 265-4758.
  • Imaginative books sweep kids away
    Sometimes we all need to escape for a bit, and that’s as true for kids as it is for adults. The good news is an escape doesn’t have to mean a trip to Tahiti or Disney. A great escape is as simple as a book that’s packed with imagination, like the three books reviewed today and the three recommended by your local librarian.

    Why wait? Escape now and enjoy the adventure – read!
  • Jefferson County and the City of Madison have been monitoring and reacting to situations caused by the ongoing rainfall and flooding. 
  • Roads submerged
    Throughout Jefferson County, the Ohio River, creeks, culverts and ditches were flooded Friday, causing road closures, evacuations, and other precautionary measures. 
    Flood warnings continue for the Ohio River Valley as the river inches upward after rainfall that is expected to continue into the weekend. Minor flooding is expected. 
  • This will be updated Monday through Saturday once daily or as need arises. All information will be archived if the public would like to search it at a later date.
