Special report: Strike, and we 'shall arrest'
Less than 10 years ago, the domestic violence arrest rate for Madison County law enforcement officers was 29 percent — arrests were made in less than 30 percent of the times they were called to respond. Through September of this year, those same agencies now have a domestic violence arrest rate of 73 percent, well above the statewide average. In the third installment of our five-part Sunday series, we examine how local agencies have changed their approach to confronting domestic violence incidents.

Special report: The cycle of domestic violence
The Herald Bulletin is exploring the epidemic of domestic violence in Madison County with a five-part series continuing each Sunday during October. This week, we look at the cycle of domestic violence. For the abuser, it's about gaining — and keeping — power and control. For the abused, the fear of the unknown can be greater than the fear faced by staying at home.

Special report: Faces of domestic violence
Beginning today, The Herald Bulletin will publish a five-part series to examine domestic violence’s causes and results and to address the painful questions that punctuate the issue: Why here? Why now? Why us? The series will continue each Sunday through October. Our hope is the telling of these stories — and the exploration of the local epidemic — will help make the national “No More” campaign against domestic violence a reality in Madison County.

College debt: A staggering burden
When Elizabeth Finley began her college career, she never imagined she’d end up with $100,000 to pay back in student loans. “I knew I’d be in debt,” the Anderson woman said, “but not a hundred grand.” Finley’s case isn’t as rare as you might think. Student debt has followed the skyrocketing trajectory of college tuition rates.
