    It is uncanny but it seems that Antioch and sensational news are wedded at the hip. This fellow was a Purple Heart recipient who was given a home in the Judsonville area under the “Homes 4 Wounded Heroes” program. A happy ending after he ran into a land mine then cascaded into this tragedy.

    It seems that every time we see good news we can expect to get hit not only by negative news but by these kinds of headline-grabbers (recent ones being 12 shootings in, what was it, 12 days; being recognized as a ‘stressed city’ and ranking 4th on most violent CA. cities.

    Almost a hex.
