    The saga of a Lawrenceburg man who allegedly hunted under the influence and shot at another dove hunter finally came to a close with him pleading guilty on a Class D felony.

    Satan couldn’t destroy Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church, but a flash flood that dropped 5 inches of rain in under and hour certainly did major damage to the church and nearby homes, leaving one family devastated and church members scrambling to rebuild their house of worship.
