  • If you see a bearded man walking up and down Main Street, staring at his smart phone, scrolling with his index finger vigorously, or positioning his phone to get a good look at something with his camera, don’t think anything of it. He might be James Simpson, and he’s just playing Pokémon Go.
    Sure, Simpson might be pointing his camera at something across the street, but if you look in the same direction, you won’t see what he’s seeing. That’s because you’re in our world. Simpson, however, is in the world of Pokémon Go.

  • Amber Wathen broke down in tears as she and her husband, Craig, walked out of the doctor’s office. They had driven more than 10 hours for the procedure, only to be told that her husband’s reverse vasectomy probably wouldn’t work. It had been too long since he’d gotten the procedure done in the first place.
    Craig had gotten the vasectomy seven years before after having two kids in his previous marriage.

    Losing a limb can have a devastating impact on a person’s life, drastically changing it, but Marion County native Shawn Gaither said the experience has given him a new appreciation of life.
    Gaither, who has been a Type 2 diabetic for about 20 years, lost his right leg after a surgery in February.  
    Gaither initially sustained an infection in his pinky toe, which later spread to the rest of his foot. After consulting with doctors, Gaither decided it was best to amputate his foot.
