Head to the fair, support the Jaycees
In June 9 Issue

The Russell County Jaycees Fair kicked off Saturday with a day full of baby shows and beauty pageants and culminated in the big car demolition derby Saturday night. Sunday was filled with the car and tractor show and a Christian Rock Concert sponsored by the Russell Springs First Baptist Youth Group.

Monday saw the carnival open up in the midway as well as the KOTPA Truck and Tractor Pull and the Coca-Cola Talent Contest while Tuesday was a full day of events, including the floral hall opening, dairy shows, mule pulls and the small car and lawmower demolition derbies.

Needless to say, along with the many food and item vendors, there was something for everyone in the first few days of the fair.

That will not change in the coming days as lawn mower pulls, cage fighting, wrestling, beef and cattle shows, the rodeo, truck pulls, horse racing and much more take center stage.

While we are right smack dab in the middle of this year’s off we want to thank the Russell County Jaycees for again bringing high quality entertainment to Russell County at affordable prices.

We encourage all of our readers to visit the Jaycees Fair before it winds down on Saturday night. Each day is packed with something fun for everyone and the new grandstand adds a new appeal to the fairgrounds plus there is now tons of available seating for events in the main arena.

We also want to take a few moments to congratulate Donnie Wilkerson at Jamestown Elementary.

Donnie was named 2011 Kentucky History Teacher of the Year by the Kentucky Historical Society. Meeting with Donnie this week and learning of his teaching methods it is no wonder he ran away with the honor.

Donnie is a former mayor of Jamestown and brings a teaching style to the classroom that all his students can understand and appreciate. He makes learning fun while also being informative and the extra work and hours he puts in his job has been rewarded.

In closing this week we want to remind everyone that our editorial page is still a work in progress as we continue to determine where to go from here.

If you have any ideas or suggestions of what you’d like to see appear on the Times Journal’s editorial page please let us know by emailing editor@tjrcn.com or calling our office at 270-866-3191. We want to continue to provoke thoughts, instill laughter and provide commentary in the best way possible and we feel there is no better way to do that than to ask our you all what you want. Remember, this is your newspaper and we want to provide you with everything you’d like in your newspaper.

Enjoy the fair, we’ll see you there!

Derek Aaron, Editor
