The News-Item’s cheers and jeers from the past week of news:

Jeers to one of the accused arsonists charged with attempted murder, among other crimes, relating to a fire two weeks ago in Mount Carmel. All defendants going through the court system are innocent until proven guilty, but having the audacity to proclaim you wished someone was killed in the fire speaks volumes about intentions and lack of remorse.
