The line is open

Posted By on Thu, Jan 5, 2012 at 4:58 PM

Here's your open line. Not much to add, but:

* SO MUCH FOR A PROTECTION ORDER: It's a sad and awful fact of life. A domestic protection order is only a piece of paper. Fear of a contempt order isn't always a deterrent against someone prone to violence against a spouse, partner or family member. See 40/29's report on the protection order obtained by Cassie Cotta against her husband, who's been charged with killing her.

* MILLION-DOLLAR LOTTERY WINNER: Well, make that a $680,000 winner. Ruth Simcox of Cabot, a Children's Hospital nurse, hit a $1 million scratch-off winner on a $20 Diamond Dazzler ticket purchased Wednesday at the Exxon Travel Plaza in Cabot. $320,000 was withheld for taxes. She's the 12th Arkansas lottery "millionaire."
