    The birth of Ohio twins is gaining international attention. Jenna and Jillian were born Friday to Sarah and Bill Thistlethwaite, of Orville, at Akron General Medical Center. They are considered ‘mono mono’ twins — where the babies shared an amniotic sack. Their birth was rare enough in itself; mono mono twins happen in about 1 in 10,000 twin pregnancies.

Newton Daily News suspended its editor Bob Eschliman last week after he wrote controversial comments on a personal blog. “I’d like to talk a little bit about deceivers among us, most notably the LGBTQXYZ crowd and the Gaystapo effort to reword the Bible to make their sinful nature ‘right with God,’” Eschliman wrote. Several Newton residents said Eschliman went too far expressing his First […]

If castrating pigs wasn’t enough to catch the electorates’ attention, then a leather-clad Ernst shooting a gun and promising to “set (her) sights on Obamacare” should do the trick. Ernst, who has the support of Sarah Palin and Sen. Marko Rubio, is introduced as a “mom, farm girl and a lieutenant colonel who carries more […]
