  • Wind farm opposition grows

    A crowd of concerned citizens, some proudly wearing anti-wind turbine buttons, filled Fulton County Commissioners’ meeting room Monday to voice their opposition to wind farm development in the county.

    Many took issue with the proposed setbacks for wind turbines – part of several amendments approved by the Fulton County Area Plan Commission on Sept. 25.

  • Physical Zebras wear down Peru

    FOOTBALL
    Once again, the Rochester defense held down the Peru offense, and once again the Zebras found a way to rebound from a loss.

    All signs appear positive heading into its Class 2A, Sectional 35 quarterfinal home game against Lewis Cass Friday after a 21-6 win over Peru last week in the Three Rivers Conference Showcase third-place game.

  • RHS brings home trophy

    With help from their precocious teammates, the six seniors on the Rochester volleyball team protected their barn again Saturday, making all of their visitors feel completely unwelcome.

    RHS didn’t just beat Wabash 25-14, 25-20, 25-23 to win their third consecutive Class 2A, Sectional 37 title and their 20th sectional title in school history, but they also completed an undefeated four-year run at home.
