The new blog format makes it easier to get community information out.  Here’s one now:

The Bishop Timon Knights of Columbus Council in Jackson will be serving a Chicken and Dumpling / Kettle Beef Dinner with all the trimmings on Sunday the 13th of January.  Serving is from 11:00 to 2:00.  Cost is $9.00 for adults, Children 6 to 12 $4.00, 5 and under free.  The Chicken and Dumplings are made fresh Sunday morning and the Kettle Beef is cooked in a real cast iron kettle.  Our deceased brother Leonard “Slim” Beussink cooked a lot of beef in these kettles and now his son Tim is carrying on the tradition. Please forward this to all your E-Mail friends.  

Supporter Spotlight – Howard Alexander (Century 21/Ashland Realty Co.)

(Ed. note:  Due to errors, the original post of the following was deleted.)

This is the second post in a series to spotlight our supporters.  One of the many reasons that the Jackson Web has moved to a blog format was to offer more coverage for the supporters, our local businesses.

Our long-time supporter Howard Alexander offers this information:

Century 21 Ashland Realty Co.
Smarter – Bolder – Faster
“We solve medication problems”

Century 21 Ashland Realty Co. has been serving the area since 1971 and recognizes that Jackson, Missouri, is a major residential and commercial community for Southeast Missouri.

The mural in uptown Jackson got a new coat of paint recently, just in time for the new year.

Stormy Day

There were several showers today.  I snapped a few photos after one of them stopped raining.

The pictures are from a new road I found today off the new Main Street/LaSalle Street and Old Orchard.  Also, there is a shot of the street sign at the new intersection of Bainbridge and Old Orchard.

I snapped a photo of a rainbow, but it’s pretty lame.  Let me know if the comments if you’d like to see it.

Missing Picture

Why, oh why, didn’t I go get a picture of the Brookside Memorial Park or Cape County North Park with all the beautiful flags waving this Memorial Day Weekend?

This is a great chance to share the spotlight! 

Do you have a picture of the flags waving in Jackson? 

Memorial Day

Image source

As the kick-off of summer, the Memorial Day weekend brings lots of activity to our lives.  Here in Jackson, the 100-mile yard sale begins, bringing lots of people into town up and down Highway 25.   Many events detract from the intended purpose of Memorial Day, which is to honor our fallen military and service people.

Please take time to thank those who are serving to protect our citizens and freedoms.  Honor fallen servicemen by thanking their families who suffer from their loss.

As we prepare for the barbecues and the yard sales, as we gather with family and friends, take a few moments to strengthen our cultural fabric by discussing the meaning of our Memorial Day celebrations.

As always, stay safe.

Jackson Web

Way back in December 1996, some local boys convinced the City of Jackson and the Jackson Chamber of Commerce into funding the start of the Jackson Web project. The idea was that Jackson, Missouri, was community-oriented enough to support a presence on the Internet. Now, 14 years later, the Jackson Web still provides free web presence to local schools, churches, and non-profit organizations. Local business support makes it possible.

The Jackson Web main page lists the current supporters. December is the major renewal time for supporters, and many renewals have already been received. Please let our local businesses know how much you appreciate their participation in the Jackson Web project.

If you know of a local business that should be part of the Jackson Web project, please leave a comment to tell us. Thanks for visiting the Jackson Web.

The Holiday Tree

It is a community loss from which we all suffer since the red-lighted evergreen at the corner of PP and West Jackson Blvd.

Personally, I loved it most on Valentine’s Day.

Please share your memories of the red-lighted holiday tree.
