  • VCHS students do us proud

    While a Vandalia Community High School group and its leader continued to receive accolades, other students at the school were recognized for their efforts in the classroom and growth as individuals.
    On Sunday, VCHS wrestling coach Jason Clay was recognized as the Decatur Herald Area Coach of the Year for that sport. It’s the third time in his nine years at the VCHS helm that Clay has received the honor, though there have been numerous other years that he was deserving of the honor.

  • The story of Little Hickory Church

    Sam Houston was chosen president of the republic, with his inauguration on Oct. 22, 1836. Annexation to the United States was applied for and, as they say, the rest is history.
