Issues aplenty for JC Council
Jennings County voters will go to the polls in less than two weeks. Among others, they will vote for candidates to fill three Jennings County Council at-large seats.

The red button issues before the council include whether or not to retain a contracted financial advisory firm and, as always, the county budget.

Six candidates are vying for the three positions, the selection of which will be up to voters countywide. A snapshot of the candidates' positions:

Courthouse lawn is Ghost Walk 'stage'
Courthouse lawn is Ghost Walk 'stage'
In the shadow of the Jennings County Courthouse, young thespians act out "The River Boy," one of the nine skits presented during the Jennings County Historical Society's Ghost Walk one-and-a-half weeks ago. The Jennings County High School Thespian Troupe and the Jennings County Company, both made up of JCHS students, directed and performed the skits. From left are Brad Emry, Luis Sanchez, Kaley Ernstes, Storm Miller and Kayla Gross. The Ghost Walk skits were presented not only on the courthouse lawn but also at the Commons and Adams Well, an annual tradition that is part of Hector's Haunted Evening in Vernon.-Staff Photo by Bryce Mayer
