  • Former News publisher was one of...

    I was shocked while on vacation last week when Perry County News Editor Vince Luecke called to tell me that Ron Filkins, one of our former publishers, had died of an apparent heart attack at age 57.

    We have had nine publishers (the title was general manager when I started here) in my 30 years at the News. Ron served six years in that position, 1996-2002, the second longest tenure (and just months short of the longest) since Edgar Schergens sold the News in 1972.
