Perry Circuit Judge Lucy Goffinet, left in top photo, welcomes Karen Werner as magistrate after swearing her in to the new job Monday morning in the Perry County Courthouse. Goffinet invited Werner's father, John Werner, to perform a "robing ceremony" (bottom photo), noting the elder Werner had served a stint as Perry Circuit Judge. He served as Perry Circuit Judge beginning in 1980, completing a term vacated by J. David Huber when he resigned to seek a Congressional office. Karen Werner left a position at the Waldschmidt and Werner law offices in Tell City to accept the appointment, which was announced by Goffinet last week. "It's going to be different," she said of her move from attorney's table to the judge's bench.
