Vigil planned for troops

Honor the troops who have fought in the war in Iraq by participating in a candlelight vigil on Friday, Dec. 30 at 5:30 p.m., below the steps to the Jackson County Public Library at the Veterans Memorial Fountain. The event will be postponed only if there is a serious snowstorm. This is a nonpartisan, single-issue event, commemorating the end of the long and deadly war in Iraq and showing gratitude for those who served, their families and those who are bringing the war to a close.
