[JULY 21, 2000]  The message was clear domestic violence is no longer just a family affair. It’s a community problem, and one that a number of organizations in Logan County are working to solve.

Major league report:
Midterm grades

[JULY 21, 2000]  A few months ago this LDN reporter made some bold predictions about this year’s major league baseball season, and amazingly some of them have actually come true!  This proves once again, conclusively, that if you make enough predictions you might actually stumble on a correct one every once in a while.  Needless to say, it has been an exciting campaign so far.  The St. Louis Cardinals are in first place by seven games over the Cincinnati Reds, and the Chicago White Sox have a double-digit lead over the Cleveland Indians in their respective Central Divisions.  The Chicago Cubs managed to keep Sammy Sosa on board and hope to turn things around during the second half of the year.  This week the LDN gives you a mid-season look at how the season has shaped up so far and what you might expect in the second half.
