Look Familiar?


From time to time we’ll be posting items of interest for you to identify. This is our first one—just for fun! Do you recognize anyone in this caricature? In the weeks to come we’ll post other pictures and places and people for you to reminisce over. Share your remembrances and thoughts. It’ll be fun!

Clarification of Village Trough Article

In the Berea Citizen article on April 17, 2014, about the Village Trough receiving funding for First Friday events, Ali Blair was misidentified as Cecile Watkins. When referencing a prior article about the starting of Village Trough, an incorrect name was pulled out.

Hear from the County Candidates

For the last three weeks before the primary election in May, the Berea Citizen will be publishing the results of a questionnaire we sent to the candidates running for office in Madison County; these are offices that effect the City of Berea. This includes the candidates running for the Judge Executive office, the Magistrate candidates  in 1st through 3rd Districts, the County Clerk, the Jailer, and the Sheriff. We asked all of them three questions — Why they were interested in office? What they considered the most important issues of their office, and what they would like to accomplish within their first term? What would you like to know from the candidates before the election?

The New Website is Launched!

Photo on 4-15-14 at 4.45 PMWelcome to the new website of the Berea Citizen! We will be using this as a platform to communicate with our readers, and to ease the way for people to renew subscriptions and submit different pieces to the paper. As a community, weekly newspaper, it is of utmost importance that we are in constant communication with the people who live in our vivacious town, and this website is another way for us to make that possible.
Please try out the different links, and let us know what you like about it, and don’t like about it. We will be glad to get your feedback!

Thanks so much!
