RHS Red Devils Defeat Herbert Hoover

Football season has arrived and Ravenswood kicked off its season with a 20-12 win over Herbert Hoover. The team’s next game is Friday, Sept. 4 at Poca. Good luck Coach Fudley … err, uh … I mean Sturm!

School Board Approves Personnel Changes

Among the many personnel matters requested recently before the Jackson County Board of Education include the request for retirement by Ravenswood Grade teacher Betty Nuzum and a transfer from RMS 42-16956657to RHS by David Rader. Best of luck to both!

Cell Phones Permitted in Jackson County Schools

The Jackson County School Board has passed a cell phone policy that will allow kids to bring cell phones to school so long as students store them in their lockers and have them turned off during school hours. Students engaged in extracurricular activities may carry cell phones during those activities so long as the phone is on silent. The school board was originally considering a ban on the devices but changed directions after parents and students pointed out the benefits of cell phones for students.

It’s Never a Good Idea to Drive Drunk. It’s an Especially Bad Idea to Hit a Police Vehicle While Driving Drunk. It’s an Even Worse Idea to Hit a Police Vehicle  in Front of a Police Station While Driving Drunk.

Edward Cranfield, 40, of Cottageville, was arrested after the vehicle he was driving collided with a Jackson County Sheriff’s Department Jeep on Maple Street in Ripley. The accident occurred just a few feet from the sheriff department’s headquarters. After failing several field sobriety tests administered by a deputy not involved in the accident, Cranfield was put under arrest. He has been charged with driving on a revoked license and DUI.

Stewart to Wed

Jake Stewart, class of ’97, plans to marry Keiah White, 19, of Sandyville. Congratulations!

School Lunch Menu Returns

With school back in session, we have the triumphant return of the School Lunch Menu. Today, the kiddies will be dining on chicken strips, mashed potatoes, peas, rolls and milk. Interesting that the menu no longer refers to that dastardly whole wheat rolls and simply lists them as rolls. To all my Jackson County teacher friends, does this switch indicate a return to the fabulous hot rolls or is it just some fancy language trickery by the whole wheat roll to hide the truth?
