Sixteen arrests in 12 months. That was true in Table Rock last year. One individual was arrested four times and another two times. The wonderful little town we all knew when we grew up here has changed. Those 16 arrests last year compare to 9 for Pawnee City and two in Steinauer. There were no arrests in DuBois.

Bridge closing means Amish school harder to get to

By Ray Kappel.
 
A closed bridge near Table Rock is turning into a bridge over troubled waters. The bridge is located on 712 Road south of Table Rock and about three miles from the Amish school. Because the bridge has been closed residents in the area are having to go a longer way around to get where they want to go. One is Jake Schwartz, a leader in the Amish community. He has two children who attend the Amish school, and because of the closed bridge have to travel 6 miles on nearby roads to get to the school. Schwartz’s children drive their buggy to school with a pony.
