  • Mary improving; breakfast ending at downtown site
    There is news again from Horst’s Bakery, which has been in the public eye recently after Horst and his wife, Mary, were injured March 8 while crossing Main Street.
  • Update: Commissioners agree to move forward with new jail site

    The Jefferson County Commissioners voted Thursday evening to accept the jail committee's recommendation to begin the purchasing processes for part of a property located north of J A Berry Lane, west of the former Robus Leather building. Commissioners David Bramer and Robert Little voted to in favor of moving forward and are still planning to look into purchasing around 50 acres of the more than 80-acre parcel. Commissioner Ron Lee was absent due to a death in the family. The county council is expected to take the first action regarding this potential jail site during their first meeting in April. 

    Midday Update:

    The Jefferson County Exploratory Jail Committee moved Wednesday night to recommend a site on Madison’s hilltop to consider for the new jail. The county commissioners will meet tonight, but it was unclear at publication time whether the commissioners will discuss the recommendation. The Madison Courier will update this story as soon as the information can be obtained.

Cat rescued after sliding down dam's spillway
HUNTINGTON, Ind. (AP) — A wayward cat is safe after it was rescued from a dam in Indiana. The Huntington County Sheriff's Department writes on Facebook that a fisherman spotted the feline stranded on the spillway at the J. Edward Roush Lake dam. Officers could not reach the animal, so Army Corps of Engineers workers decided to help. The workers got permission to shut down the flow of water and they launched a boat. Video shows that when the boat reached the spillway, the cat slid all the way down into the arms of the rescuers before it hit the water.
