I have lived in Perry Hall for nearly my entire life. Let's just say that's 29 years as a resident—give or take. For the last 15 years, I have worked for community newspapers, including the Times-Herald. I also co-published Perry Hall's Journal Northeast in the late 90s.
My biggest claim to fame is that I designed the Perry Hall logo. Maybe you've seen it on the brick wall in front of Perry Hall Elementary School, as part of the Perry Hall Marketplace sign, or on the markers at each of the borders of Perry Hall. Yes, I do point them out to everyone.
Much of what I know about the news, I learned from Don Dohler. His name was once synonymous with community news in Perry Hall. He was my mentor and my friend. His death in 2006 left a news hole that cannot be filled.
