    Dear local business owners,

    Last year, the Oak Hill Pee Wee football program held a chili cook-off to raise money for the program. With funds last year we were able to buy a much needed ice machine for our community field, and this year as well as last, it was free for children to play football. We asked for donations from the surrounding communities for auction items. Some places chose to give cash to allow us to prepare a basket in their name, while others donated products or goods.

    I am a concerned resident of Jackson County. I think it’s pretty good that people are so jealous and hateful that when someone runs for Jackson Township Trustee, that they go around and destroy their signs they put out. 
  • Jackson loses its ‘Music Man’

    The late and much beloved D. Merrill Davis will forever and rightly be credited as the man who helped build and cement a love of vocal music that remains strongly rooted in the Jackson City School District and the greater Jackson area community. His gentlemanly manner, the level of personal respect he commanded, along with his musical acumen and teaching skills, have made him a figure for the ages. His legacy of cultivating a musical heritage locally is undeniable and seemingly timeless.

    On the instrumental music side, if anybody can be bestowed the title of “The Music Man” in Jackson, it would be Richard (Dick) Berry. He came to Jackson in 1989 from Indiana and remained until his retirement in 2005. In those 17 years, he built the Jackson High School Band program into the source of school and community pride its remains today. Succeeding band directors have attempted to follow his lead and adopt his template -- the ultimate compliment. Like D. Merrill, it appears Dick’s accomplishments and his stamp on the band program also will constitute a lasting legacy.

  • Solar Energy
    I was floating in my pool last night and I was really aware of just how powerful the sun’s energy is. Just as I was thinking that, a big cloud came over and I noticed an incredible decrease in that energy. I was reminded of something I read in the 80s that said if we could effectively capture the amount of energy that hits a tennis court, we could easily have enough energy to power an entire house.

    A true and loyal fan is one every head coach and player values, looks up to, and remembers. In Vinton County, Scott Fee fits the bill as a loyal Viking fan.
