The local area was hit by light snow Monday night and Tuesday morning, which has resulted in Level 2 Snow Advisories being put into effect by the local sheriffs in both Jackson and Vinton counties.

Also, all local schools and Head Start programs were closed Tuesday as well as the University of Rio Grande and all branch campuses, including the evening classes and all student activities. There will also be no evening classes Tuesday at the Buckeye Hills Career Center. The Jackson Child Development Center also was to close at 4 p.m. Tuesday. And Christian Night at the Cavalier Roller Rink has been canceled for Tuesday evening.

All three senior citizens centers in Jackson County also closed Tuesday. Also on Tuesday, the Oak Hill Public Library closed and Storytime program at the Sylvester Memorial Public Library in Wellston was canceled. The Jackson Lions Club meeting for this Wednesday evening was also canceled. Also, the Jackson County Board of Developmental Disabilities scheduled for Tuesday evening has been postponed and rescheduled for next Tuesday, Jan. 23 and will start at 5 p.m.

Also, the Jackson City Schools have announced all parent-teacher conferences set for Tuesday evening have been cancelled at all five buildings: the high school, the middle school and all three elementary schools.

As for high school boys' basketball games, all four games Tuesday evening involving our local teams have been postponed. The Oak Hill at Wellston game has been rescheduled for this Wednesday evening.
