    Editor’s Note: Perry County is home to a number of producers who produce grass-fed beef as well as consumers who enjoy it.

     

    Indiana’s agriculture industry helps fuel the state’s economy and touches the life of every Hoosier. A major component of that industry includes the production of beef. Our state has around 870,000 head of cattle, more than 190,000 of which are beef cows.

  • Ernie Pyle Day designation a most deserving honor

    A Hoosier journalist whose words connected Americans at home with the World War II battlefields in Europe, Africa and the Pacific is more than worthy of plans to honor him next August. 

    We support a resolution introduced last week by U.S. Sens. Todd Young and Joe Donnelly designating Aug. 3, 2018, as National Ernie Pyle Day.

  • Senators stop Perry Central late

    LEOPOLD—Perry Central had trouble scoring against West Washington’s man-to-man defense and lost 55-37 in PLAC girls basketball Monday.
    The Commodores held West Washington to 4 for 17 field-goal shooting in the third quarter to pull within nine points after a slow start.
    West Washington had played a zone defense most of the game, but “in the fourth quarter they went man-to-man and we didn’t execute very well in the halfcourt,” said Perry Central Coach Ty Guillaume.

  • Forest Park sectional favorite

    Sectional 48, this area’s Class 2A boys basketball sectional, has traditionally been one of the strongest - if not the strongest - in its class in the state.
    It has produced two state champions and one state runner-up in the last 15 years. And one of the teams currently in it, Mater Dei, won the state title in 2004 when it was in another sectional.
    This year the sectional looks possibly stronger than ever. Four of the seven teams in it could go a long way in the state tourney if they survive the sectional.
