The trial of former Vina teacher Kimberly Bynum was postponed again. Counting pre-trial delays, we're not sure if this was postponement number six or seven, but her original arrest was in June 2011. For those who have asked, a speedy trial is the right of the defendant, not the state. Still, isn't it better to just go ahead and get it over with? The facts of the case won't magically disappear, or will they? Several readers have suggested Bynum may still marry her former student. Well...perhaps the Franklin County Jail could add a honeymoon suite?

Remember Kenneth Risner who was charged with making terrorist threats after shutting down Tuscumbia's Spring Park during a supposed suicide attempt? It seems charges have been dropped against Mr. Risner. Why? Good question. We welcome reader comments.
