  • Prison uprising injures 3 guards at Kershaw unit

    Three guards were injured, one seriously, when prisoners seized control of a dormitory for several hours Sunday at the state prison in Kershaw.

  • Crazy Critters

    A not-so-long-lasting silence fell across the room April 7 as Discovery School students waited to see which animals were in the covered cages.

    Students gasped at the legless lizard. They giggled when a cockatoo started swaying. And their eyes widened when a coati climbed up Conservation Educator Khoreen Vetter’s leg.
