The Rochester Sentinel
  • Loyal to you
    Rochester High School juniors opted for a 1980s theme for their float in Friday’s homecoming parade.
  • Homecoming Royalty
    The 2019 Rochester High School Homecoming Queen is Jordan Jennings, left, and the King is Cameren Gunter. They were crowned Friday at RHS’ football game against Manchester.
  • Grant
    The Fulton County Emergency Management Association received a $13,500 grant from the Fulton County Community Foundation. These grant dollars were used to help purchase a Lucas Chest Compression System. The device can provide automatic chest compressions for patients, freeing first responders to provide additional medical treatments. This device will assist emergency responders when faced with a patient suffering from cardiac arrest. The device can perform perfect CPR nearly endlessly and overcome the challenge a responder faces of doing CPR for 30-45 minutes. The device will be placed on one of Lutheran’s Fulton County EMS ambulances within Fulton County.

  • Civics lessons
    Akron Elementary School second graders from Ryan Adams’ and Angie Parson’s classes pose with the Akron Police Department and Henry Township volunteer firefighters Wednesday in front of the war memorial at the fire station. They presented thank-you letters/cards to the emergency responders and sang “You’re a Grand Old Flag” and “Yankee Doodle Dandy” in honor of Patriot Day.

  • Fulton County officials are moving forward with the implementation of additional security measures at the courthouse.

    During their Monday meeting, commissioners approved the purchase of a walk-through metal detector and two hand wands to be used at the east entrance, which will be the only way to enter the courthouse starting Monday.

    The purchase of the metal detectors is not to exceed $6,000. The county IT department’s budget will absorb the cost.

Additional part-time security personnel may be needed.
