The Nicky Wheeler Memorial Bull Riding event, which is associated with the Tuff Hedeman Break Out Tour, rode into town Saturday. Bull riders flocked to Jacksonville in hopes of snaring a share of the purse, which included $7,500 in added money. Proceeds from the event are used to fund scholarships to Cherokee County youth who are affiliated in agriculture. In addition, the show barn will also receive some of the proceeds.
