  • Connections at Colorado Springs...
    In a Division I college football game played on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 22, 2018, the host Air Force Falcons defeated the visiting Colorado State Rams by a score of 27-19 at Colorado Springs, Colorado.
    So you ask, why is this noteworthy newspaper copy in Jackson County, Ohio? It’s because there is a Community Connection in that faraway football game -- in fact, there are several of them.
  • Importance of community values
    During the holiday season, we are all reminded of the meaning of home. Home, for most, is the comfortable warmth of family and friends that surround us in our communities, which are the foundational strength of many Ohioans across the state. For our communities to thrive, we must all work together to give back and help those who are unfamiliar with the warmth of home this holiday season. Additionally, we as a state need to do all that we can to honor military members who are away from loved ones because of their service protecting those at home.
  • To The Editor:
    The Jackson Band Boosters have had a very busy fall with football games, the Apple Festival, a band show and parades. We would like to say thank you to all of the parents and families who have volunteers time to chaperone, work in concessions, feed the band students, and transport instruments.
  • Sawfish…a creature of God
    I was at the Sebastian Inlet fishing museum the first time I actually saw a real-life sawfish bill.  It is about four feet long, absolutely amazing and I remember thinking, how could anyone believe that this thing just accidentally evolved over the course of millions of years? The thought seems so ridiculous as opposed the opposite view.
  • The Jackson County American Cancer Society wishes to thank the people of Jackson and surrounding counties for all their help and support in making the 2018 Festival of Trees a tremendous success.
  • December 7th, a day that will live in infamy...
    To The Editor:
    That day is fast approaching, December 7th, a day that will live in infamy, a Day that Jackson Ohio can take great pride in, knowing that one of their sons had an active role in that Famous Day, and the continuing War that covered the Pacific Ocean for the next four years.
  • Community lights shining bright
    “The Christmas spirit is simply an honest spirit of love for all humanity. It is the force that moves us to give what we can, to help as we are able, and to always be of kind comfort.” 
    --Richelle E. Goodrich, Slaying Dragons
    This is not live television or a video, so you will have to take my word for this. As I write this, I am literally doffing my cap, snapping off a sharp salute, and even bowing deeply at the waist.
  • Deer Gun Season 2018…
    By the time you read this, we should be in our third day of deer gun season.  Deer gun season runs from Nov. 26 – Dec. 2, 2018.  Another two days will be available on Dec. 15 & 16.  Muzzle loader season will be Jan. 5-8.  
  • Jackson County lost one of its best-known and most respected law enforcement officers on Thanksgiving morning when retired Deputy Sheriff Anthony (Tony) Robinson died at the age of 78.

  • Happy 100th Birthday, Bob Wilson (Dad)
    Last Friday, Nov. 16, 2018 was not just another day on the calendar for me. It was the 100th anniversary of the birth of my late father, Robert (Bob) Wilson.
