Car Crashes Into Union Home on Easter

Police say alcohol played a role in an accident where an S-U-V crashed into a house in Union. Union Police responded to the 400 block of west state street after it was reported that a vehicle driven by 17 year old Zachary Rhoads of Union crashed into a house early Sunday morning. Rhoads damaged an electric junction box, a fence and the back porch of the residence. Rhoads fled the scene but the homeowner supplied police with the license plate number and he was arrested about 15 minutes later. No one was hurt in the accident but Rhoads is facing child endangerment among many other charges. He was booked and released to a sober responsible party pending application of charges.

There are few things more inspiring in life than watching an octogenarain with two hip replacements swimming a 200 yard race, or guys in their late 70's playing some pretty vigorous 3 on 3 basketball. A generation of baby boomers is learning that, while they can't reverse age, they certainly can embrace life!
