  • COLUMN: Stabbed in the front by friends

    BY Vince Luecke, Editor

    I’ve been a little stressed lately, for a lot of reasons. Some of the causes were beyond my control, but the way I’ve handled the situations and the stress they’ve caused me was in my control. It still is.
    So, let this column serve as a public confession of sorts. I’ve done a lousy job recently of dealing with challenging times, including circumstances when I’ve felt mistreated or had my feelings hurt.

  • EDITORIAL: Perry County Cares provides useful open-gym program

    Childhood obesity is a problem nationwide, and locally we often hear kids say there is nothing to do.
    Both problems are probably worse in July than any other month because kids are out of school and all “summer” recreation leagues (Little League, Babe Ruth League and girls softball) in Perry County concluded their seasons by the end of June. Thus, only kids who made all-star or travelling teams are still playing.
    The rest have more than a month before school starts to sit around being bored or thinking of ways to get in trouble.
