  • ‘Cooper Connection’ reaches Canal Winchester

    As the 2018-2019 high school basketball season heats up, there is a notable Jackson County Connection with the Canal Winchester High School boys’ basketball team. For the geographically unfamiliar, Canal Winchester is a rapidly growing small city which straddles Franklin and Fairfield counties southeast of Columbus.

  • A wonderful life...
    Phyllis Handley lived her life on her terms and it could also be said she left it on her own terms. Mrs. Handley died on Monday, Dec. 31 at the age of 91 after a productive and giving life which greatly benefited the Jackson area and its citizens and will continue to do so for many years to come. Friends and family members said their final farewells to Phyllis last Saturday, Jan. 5 when she was laid to rest at Jackson’s Fairmount Cemetery alongside her beloved late husband, Jack Handley.

  • 4 billion miles…
    A NASA space craft has delivered an incredibly long-distance gift for us humans bound here on Earth. On Jan. 1 at 12:33 a.m., the New Horizons space craft passed Ultima Thule (TOO-LEE).

  • Boxing Day…A day-after-Christmas tradition
    It is almost unbelievable that another year is nearly gone.  January 11th will make our three-year anniversary of moving to Florida.  I was thinking about our friends from Canada, they were the first ones I ever heard of that actually celebrated Boxing Day. At that point in my life I had never heard of it.
