The Only Survivor of the Derrick Todd Lee Murders

The author’s description: Divine Justice: The Dianne Alexander Story is inspired by an actual event. It gives in depth details about my encounter with The Southwest Louisiana Serial Killer “Derrick Todd Lee.” But most of all, the book speaks about divine interventions from the beginning to the end of my horrible ordeal. I pray that this book will help you to see that God is a God of “Love and Forgiveness.”

TV tonight: ‘Dancing With the Stars Junior’ crowns a champ

TV picks for Sunday, Dec. 9

WATCH THIS:

“The Flash: Elseworlds” (8 p.m., The CW): Superheroes unite! It’s time for an epic, three-part mashup of “The Flash,” “Arrow” and “Supergirl.” The crossover fun — and weirdness — begins when Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) wake up one morning and realize they have swapped bodies. So they set off to find out what disturbed the timeline to cause such a radical role reversal and eventually realize they need help from Supergirl (Melissa Benoist). The saga continues with “Arrow” (8 p.m., Monday) and “Supergirl” (8 p.m. Tuesday).

“Dancing With the Stars: Junior” (8 p.m., ABC): Well, did you enjoy the youth-centric spin-off? Season 1 comes to an end in a holiday-themed finale as the

An honorable milestone

It’s hard to fathom how far this journey has taken me and the things I’ve witnessed and accomplished.

Friday marked three years in service as your crime and emergency services reporter for The Hillsdale Daily News.

I couldn’t imagine doing anything else with my life, although I have to admit before the fall of 2015 I never contemplated going into media.

As I’ve done in years past to commemorate my work anniversary, I’ve taken time to reflect back on this past year and the stories I’ve covered.

Overall, I have no hesitations in saying this has been my most “violent” year as a news reporter.

The amount of homicides/shootings this year in the relatively calm and quiet Hillsdale County is astonishing to me in comparison to years past.

One of the memories I’ve made this year that will stick with me for a lifetime is sitting on the side of Territorial Road Aug.
