This weekend we celebrate all the dads in our lives. We thank them for their support. We admire them for their courage. We honor them for their resilience.
Scottsboro and Jackson County offer great opportunities for tourism and recreation. Not only are the opportunities valuable to the residents, it also offers a stream of revenue for businesses and taxes.
Less than three weeks ago, on May 1, the Jackson County Sentinel announced it had a new owner. I had to make the announcement to our staff several weeks prior. It was a difficult message to receive and a difficult meeting to conduct.
Scottsboro is certainly a special place. Many of us, myself included, sometimes forget or overlook what we have all around us. The mountains, lake, streams, forests, sunsets and rolling fields are certainly something to be appreciated.
Throughout my 10 years of hosting international exchange students I have grown my extended family by 17 amazing people from around the world. Not only do I consider all 17 of these students “my boys,” but I also consider their family part of my family.
The Jackson County Sentinel is always looking to improve the content we publish. Our goal is to support and promote the community, while providing a resource for news, sports, advertisements, commentary and specialty publications.

On Feb. 27, 2004, I wrote a column in the Sentinel titled, “What’s on your forehead?” This article was about a trip to Jacksonville State University two days earlier. I was the sports editor at the Sentinel and had attended Ash Wednesday service at St. Jude Catholic Church earlier that day.
