Father John appreciated, understood freedom. His observations still apply today.

Fifty years ago last week this newspaper reported a Catholic priest serving in Nuckolls County had returned from a trip to his homeland. At that time Father John Prachar was serving the St. Stephens parish south of Lawrence. Later he was to serve the St. Joseph’s parish in Superior and Sacred Heart at Nelson. Through out his years here, he not only counseled Nuckolls County residents about spiritual matters but he was also quick to express his political views. In June of 1973 the Hastings Tribune newspaper published a story the late Roy Alleman wrote after interviewing Father Prachar.
