A few quick Amish in the News items this week,by next week I think I'll ramp up this site back to its usual content levels:
WILD AMISH PARTY BUSTED: 73 Amish youth were arrested on alcohol offenses after cops broke up a huge party in a field in Holmes County, Ohio. This sort of thing happens, more in some Amish communities than others...hopefully the underagers learned a lesson and, well, not much more to say. Click here to read the whole story.
"SELDOM SEEN" WORLD OF THE AMISH: The Washington Post ran a photo essay showing photos of the "seldom seen" world of the Amish. I don't think that today in our world of websites (including this one), reality TV, etc that the Amish are "seldom seen" anymore. But there are angles that aren't captured as much and there are definitely some compelling photos in this package. I've been to both of the communities featured in this package, I'm a big fan of the Unity, Maine community. Click here to see the photos.
