  • Take advantage of the county fair

    The hot, steamy weather is here in full force – that can only mean that it's time for the Fayette County Fair.
    The 2018 4-H show begins on Saturday morning with the horse and pony show, then the fair kicks off on Sunday at 3 p.m. with a demolition derby.
    The grandstand activities include the Miss Fayette and Little Miss pageants on Monday evening and the Jr. Miss and Future Miss pageants on Tuesday evening.

  • Band hit all of the right notes

    The two women who organized the Vandalia Community Summer Band were faced with a number of questions after the band's performance. But most were of the same nature.
    Those attending the performance were asking Elizabeth Mesnard, a music education student at McKendree who came up with the idea for the band, and Amanda Moloney, Vandalia director of bands, when the band would be performing next.
    Those posing the question indicated the desire to, for example, perform every Friday or at least several more times this summer. We would add our request for that.

    Daulbaugh will also tell you that she believes she can be succesful in the position of director of economic development for the city of Vandalia. And her work history supports that.
    We have to admit that the city's hiring of Daulbaugh, who has been the program director for the Family YMCA of Fayette County, was a surprise.
