  • When I first moved to Missouri back in 1979, I had a bit of trouble keeping Jackson County and Jackson (city) straight. The two are on opposite ends of the state, so for a reporter interested in local news for the Chillicothe radio station where I was employed in those days, a Jackson dateline meant the Kansas City area, the nearest large metro area to Chillicothe, and therefore something that might be of interest to our listeners, while a story out of Jackson (city) might not be.

  • The next interesting tidbit is why is the Jackson High School mascot the Indian? Andrew Jackson was a terrible president in regards to Native Americans and responsible for the Trail of Tears.

  • Brilliant research, James. Happy bicentennial, Jackson.
