    Thanks for sharing this latest edition of JAPAS. I’ve already read
    two of the articles and will read the rest at a later time. In
    the article “Amish Settlements Across America”, the writer mentions
    that “para-Amish” groups,including the Bergholz, Ohio, settlement, are not included in the statistics. I remember the question of whether or not the Bergholz group is currently considered to be Amish, has been mentioned several times in previous Amish America posts. Another article I would highly recommend to Amish America readers is “What do College Students Have to Learn from the Amish?” Several things are mentioned in that article that cause me to reflect on my own interest in the Amish. And thanks to Cory Anderson for developing and freely sharing JAPAS.

    • One thing that caught my eye in this latest issue was seeing the name of old friend Stephen Scott, who has partial authorship of the Old Order injury study article.

      For those who don’t know Steve was a researcher at the Young Center, member of the Old Order River Brethren, and author of numerous books on Amish and Old Order life. He passed away suddenly not quite 2 years ago.

    Woodville Amish

    We have been getting to know the new community in Woodville, WI. It has been fascinating observing them settle, building new homes, barns, schools, ect. One of the families moved up from Tomah, and the other two we have met from Missouri. One of these families had moved from Cashton down to Missouri in 06, but found the summer heat to be too brutal. There was a wedding this summer.
