BUSINESS CONFIDENTIAL: Tomato Fest is Jacksonville at its best

A tomato-y promotion effort with tomato-y zest!



OF NOTE: The Cherokee County Hay Show Committee is offering a minimum of two $1,000 scholarships expected to be awarded to high school juniors and seniors, the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce noted Wednesday.

The Cherokee County Scholarship fund was created in 1991 and gives scholarships to young individuals who excel in agriculture. The deadline is April 15.

The money for the scholarship will not be paid until the selected student enrolls in post-secondary school and provides proof of enrollment to the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce.

Inquiries can be directed to the chamber (903)586-2217 or emailed to coordinator@jacksonvilletexas.com.


This reporter is curious: Is there anyone else out there who'd like to evaluate the city's coffee supply before the Jacksonville Daily Progress undertakes the task? If so, please let us know!

Kim “Mama K” Holman recently provided her own, unique — and outstanding — assessment of the area coffee.

The cup of coffee in question to be hot, tasty, and have lots of caffeine.

Wake up and give us a holler.
