  • Edmunds Central School election Tuesday, Nov. 7

    Nov 1, 2023

    An Edmunds Central School District election is planned on November 7 in all voting precincts.

  • Fiddlin' Around

    -deg|Nov 1, 2023

    We enjoyed watching the All-State Orchestra and Chorus in Rapid City Saturday evening on Public TV. It is challenging trying to pick out the Ipswich and Edmunds Central vocalists in the sea of faces. We actually have a shirttail relative from Rapid City in the orchestra. So she was very easy to pick out because she plays a very tiny instrument — the piccolo. And she was the only one, next to the flute players, with the larger flutes. You could watch and hear the instrument since it has a very high pitch, sounding like a tin whistle. She m...

    Ipswich split two recent varsity volleyball matches to finish their regular-season schedule.
