The tomato put Jacksonville on the map, and today residents still go all-out to pay homage to that little red fruit’s contribution to the community. Tomato Fest may be Jacksonville’s biggest festival each year, but there are also many other exciting annual events drawing tourists to the city. From history buffs to outdoor enthusiasts, from music aficionados to rodeo fans, everyone can find a Jacksonville event to tickle their fancy. By Kelly Young

Celebrating History Tomato Fest

Commemorating the town’s heritage as Tomato Capital of the World, Tomato Fest draws more than 15,000 patrons from the surrounding area each year with its wide variety of tomato-themed special events, unique vendors and delicious foods. According to Shelley Cleaver of the Cherokee County Historical Commission, the area’s first tomato crop was harvested in 1897. But it wouldn’t take long for the tomato to become Jacksonville’s dominant industry, and from that point Jacksonville quickly became a central player in the nation’s tomato market. “Tomatoes were a big deal here for many years, from about 1900 until World War II. During the boom, the New York Stock Exchange used to call down here every morning to see what a pound of tomatoes was selling for in Jacksonville,” Cleaver said. “We used to do so much tomato business that Jacksonville was pretty much open all night during those years – many times we would be down there until 2 or 3 in the morning, loading up tomatoes for buyers.” While Jacksonville’s reign as tomato king came to an end decades ago, the area’s local soil still produces some of the most sought-after specimens of the fruit available anywhere. “There is nothing like a tomato raised here in Cherokee County. We still make the best ones you can get anywhere, and eating one you can tell the difference, I think,” Cleaver said. “I’m proud of our tomatoes, I’m proud of our history and I’m proud to be a member of this community.” During the 2010 Tomato Fest, Jacksonville earned its way into the Guinness World Records after volunteers who had prepped for days and worked for six straight hours successfully created the world’s largest bowl of salsa - a behemoth of tomatoes, onions and cilantro weighing more than a ton. Tomato Fest is held each year on the second Saturday in June. Most events take place in the downtown area. They include the Tomato Eating Contest, the Tomato Peeling Contest, the homegrown tomato and salsa contests, an antique car show, a karaoke contest, an auction sponsored by Kiwanis International, more than 150 East Texas vendors, several food booths and much more. A fishing tournament is also held in conjunction with Tomato Fest on nearby Lake Jacksonville. 6

Thunder in the Pines Motorcycle Rally and Music Jam

Perhaps Jacksonville’s fastest-growing annual event, Thunder in the Pines started in 2006 as the J’ville Music Jam – a festival to honor the rich musical heritage of Cherokee County – and added the bike rally element in 2008. The three-day event, held the first weekend in October, features numerous local bands and several motorcycle games for those who bring their hogs with them into town for the rally. Headlining performers in the past have included Shinebox, Grant Cook and The Damascus Road. Johnnie Helm, who helped create the original music jam, said East Texas has been blessed with an uncommonly rich musical heritage. Greats like Al Dexter, Johnny Horton, Fred Lowery, Neal McCoy, Spud Goodall, Amanda McBroom, Bugs Henderson and Lee Ann Womack are all connected to this area. Dexter was just inducted into the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame in August of this year. “As I started doing research into our musical heritage, I just kept scratching the surface and finding more and more examples of people who have gone on to have successful careers in the music industry who started out within a 20-mile radius of Jacksonville,” Helm said. Organizers estimate the rally and music jam attracted 1,500 participants last year.

Mud Nationals

A weeklong extravaganza of mudding fun and racing action, the High Lifter ATV Mud Nationals is the premier event in the world of allterrain vehicles. For the past six years, the Mud Nationals event has called Jacksonville home. Drawing riders from across America and Canada to the Mud Creek Off-Road Park each March, Mud Nationals is a five-day celebration of all things mud. Featuring incredible trails, spectacular mud-riding competitions, prize giveaways, food and ATV vendors, the Mud Nationals event is a great opportunity to get muddy and meet thousands of fellow 4-wheeler enthusiasts.

Motorcycle Rally & Music Jam

“Recreational ATV riding and mudding really caught-on about seven years ago. It has continued to grow since then, and it shows no signs of slowing down,” said Craig Fletcher, spokesperson for Mud Creek. “There’s a small niche of people who come down to race competitively, but 90 percent of the people come out there just to cruise around, play in the mud and make some new friends.” Fletcher said Mud Creek’s varied terrain and top-of-the-line facilities make the park the perfect location to host Mud Nationals. “We have a great working relationship with High Lifter, we are happy with them and they are happy with us, and Mud Nationals is going to be here indefinitely – at least until someone else opens up a park in this region that can compete with us,” he said. Nearly 15,000 people attended last year’s competition, and attendance numbers are expected to continue to climb in the years to come. Mud Creek also plays host to the Mudstock musical festival each year in October.

Harvest Fest

Fans of Christian music have a great local option available to them in Harvest Fest, held each year on the last Saturday in September. Harvest Fest has attracted some big names to the Tomato Bowl over the last few years, as Krystal Meyers, KJ-52 and Day of Fire – all Dove Award-winning performers – have headlined the event in years past. The 2010 event, starring rock band Seventh Day Slumber, attracted nearly 1,000 Christian music lovers and a number of local youth groups. Other annual events include an impressive Independence Day fireworks display put on over Lake Jacksonville by the lake association, the Texas Testicle Festival in March to benefit Cal Farley’s Boy Ranch and the many activities of the Old Fashioned Christmas celebration. Joan Malone, chairperson of the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce board of directors for 2011, said the chamber is an asset to the community. “These events offer diversity, carry on traditions, honor our heritage and promote community

pride. Jacksonville is fortunate to have an active chamber of commerce that plans, coordinates and supports so many great events throughout the year,” Malone said. “I encourage everyone to support Jacksonville by attending these fun-filled, family-oriented community events. These festivals showcase just of few of the many good things about our town.”

Tops in Texas Rodeo

Wowing spectators with incredible rodeo action and unforgettable big-name entertainers since 1963 the PRCA Tops in Texas Rodeo rides into Jacksonville on the second week of July each year. Events include bull riding, saddle and bareback bronco riding, tie-down roping, team roping, steer wrestling, barrel racing, calf scrambles, a Chuck Wagon luncheon and a rodeo parade through downtown Jacksonville. In recent years, organizers have lowered ticket prices for more family and children-themed activities. Past performers include Garth Brooks, Mark Chestnutt, Sammy Kershaw, Kenny Chesney, Brooks and Dunn, the Oak Ridge Boys, Jerry Lee Lewis, Moe Bandy and many others. Neal McCoy and Lee Ann Womack, two of country music’s biggest names, are both Jacksonville natives, and each has returned in years past to headline the rodeo concert series. For more information regarding future community events, the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce keeps an up-to-date calendar on their website, at www.jacksonvilletexas.com/calendar.htm. JS

Options, Options, Options… J By Kelly Young

acksonville may have more than its fair share of exciting annual events, but there is still plenty to do around town every other day of the year. Between a broad assortment of local amusements, a plethora of retail shopping options and a 1,352-acre lake which is home to all manner of recreation, residents of Jacksonville never have to go far to find something fun to do. According to Peggy Renfro, president of the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce, shopping opportunities are plentiful around our town.

“Jacksonville has a variety of specialty shops located in the downtown area, as well as many other locations throughout our community,” Renfro said. “Shoppers looking for a unique gift for family members or friends can usually find just what they are looking for in Jacksonville.” Renfro said retail accommodations in town include a wide variety of furniture showrooms, beauty salons, antique stores and other boutiques. “It’s important for residents to shop Jacksonville first, because dollars spent locally support the economy as they turn over repeatedly in the community. On the other hand, Jacksonville gets no benefit at all from people shopping online or out-of-town,” she said. For nature lovers, Jacksonville features a gorgeous lake and an abundance of parks, walking trails and other green spaces. Located just southwest of town, Lake Jacksonville has been drawing visitors to its shores since 1957. The lake is a great location for swimming, with two public swimming areas; boating, with three boat ramps; picnicking, with a concession area featuring 10 screened shelters; and camping, with a seven-site campground and 10 R.V. pads all furnished with electricity and water hookups.

Anglers can find catfish as heavy as 70 pounds and bass as long as 27 inches within Lake Jacksonville’s waters. Sunfish, carp, shad, crappie and many other species also call the lake home.

River Run ATV Park. Mud Creek Off-Road Park is also situated on 79 about five miles east of Jacksonville. Both parks offer RV and tent camping, hot showers, pressure washers and other amenities to their patrons.

Gene Brumbelow, president of the Lake Jacksonville Association, said the lake is one of the significant reasons Jacksonville has prospered.

For those interested in a little slice of history and willing to travel a short distance to see it, the Texas State Railroad offers unique steam and diesel excursions through the scenic Piney Woods of East Texas.

“The ability to live on the water so near the city is rare, and that circumstance has attracted many people who have moved their home and business here due to the beautiful style of living offered by the lake,” Brumbelow said. “Its size, variety of depths, trees, hills, fresh water sources and beautiful sunsets really set it apart as a unique and special place to live and visit.” In addition to the lake, Jacksonville contains a multitude of parks, foremost being Nichols Green – a 147-acre tract of picturesque land home to tennis courts, basketball hoops, picnic pavilions, a skate park and miles of walking trails. “We have about a dozen parks scattered across Jacksonville, and that’s considerably more than most cities our size have,” said Parks and Recreation Director Ben Briley. “Whether it’s the lake, Nichols Green, Lincoln Park, Buckner Park or the baseball/softball complex, the people of Jacksonville have a lot of good options when it comes to outdoor recreation.”

Located 15 miles south of Jacksonville, and running between the towns of Rusk in the east and Palestine in the west, the railroad remains the only place in Texas where tourists can go to see a steam-powered locomotive in operation. Along with their regular runs, TSRR also offers a wide array of special events like Thomas the Tank Engine, the Polar Express, the Little Engine That Could and the Lone Ranger. Other entertainments available in town include the Jackson Cinema 3 movie theater, the Highland Lanes bowling alley, the Skateland USA skating rink and The Challenge at the Woods of Jacksonville golf course. “With all this to do in town – plus local civic clubs, colleges and non-profit organizations holding various events throughout the year there’s a lot more going on in Jacksonville than most people may think,” Renfro said. JS

And if the lake and parks aren’t enough, Jacksonville is literally surrounded with some of the best outdoor recreation to be found anywhere.

We have about

Just a few miles west of town on U.S. Highway 79 is

a dozen parks scattered across Jacksonville, and that’s considerably more than most cities our size have.

Jacksonville began in 1847 as the town of Gum Creek. Jackson Smith built a home and blacksmith shop in the area, and became postmaster in 1848, when a post office was authorized. Shortly afterward, Dr. William Jackson established an office near Smith’s shop. When the town site was laid out in 1850, the name Jacksonville was chosen in honor of these two men. The name of the post office was changed from Gum Creek to Jacksonville in June 1850.

Building on success Boasting an award-winning school district, both of Texas’ two private junior colleges, a Baptist seminary and a private, Christian school, Jacksonville sets itself apart as a great place to get an education. Offering top-quality instruction at every level of development, Jacksonville’s varied educational institutions are working together to help ensure our children get the best possible head-start in life.

National Blue Ribbon schools are named by the U.S. Department of Education each year, with the designation lasting for five years. West Side Elementary won its award for consistent achievement during the past five years, while Fred Douglass Elementary earned its award due to its improved academic marks during that same term. A group of JISD officials traveled to Washington D.C. in November 2010 to accept the awards. This is the first time a Jacksonville school has ever earned this honor.

JISD

Only 314 school campuses in the entire country earned the distinction of being named National Blue Ribbon schools during the 2009-2010 academic year. Of those 314 campuses, only 25 are in Texas. Of those 25, two – West Side and Fred Douglass elementary schools - are a part of the Jacksonville Independent School District.

“The district as a whole has also experienced improvement. Two years ago, based on the Texas Education Agency’s rating system, three of our campuses were exemplary, two were recognized and two were acceptable. Last year, four were exemplary, two were recognized and only one was acceptable,” Dr. Wardell said.

Superintendent Dr. Joe Wardell says this most recent recognition proves Jacksonville has one of the best school districts in the entire state.

Other recent accomplishments include five district campuses receiving Gold Performance Acknowledgements for academic achievement, three campuses being named Title I Distinguished Performance schools and Nichols Intermediate earning a Just for Kids National Award. For the eighth consecutive year the district also received a superior rating in TEA’s Financial Integrity Rating System.

“When you think about there being 8,300 campuses in Texas, only 25 are chosen in the entire state, and two of them are right here, it really says a lot about the quality of education available here in Jacksonville,” Dr. Wardell said. “Receiving this recognition says a lot to affirm the great academic achievement that is happening at every one of our campuses.”

are recognized as National Blue Ribbon

Featuring top-rated scholastic offerings, many extracurricular activities like band, choir and a successful athletic program, Dr. Wardell said he likes where JISD is today, but he likes where it is heading in the future even more. “Probably the greatest thing about our campus administrators here is that they are a very competitive group of people. Sure they want the district to succeed, but they also want to do better than anyone else in the district – and they use that as motivation to always continue improving,” he said. “I’m convinced this is one of the very best school districts in Texas, and as great as things are now, we still have tremendous potential for the future.”

Lon Morris College

Founded in 1854, Lon Morris College may be the oldest existing two-year college in the entire state of Texas, but that long heritage isn’t keeping the school from continuing to pursue sustainable growth. Recent improvements include the introduction of new academic programs, the formation of a new football team and the completion of additional student housing options. With so much progress being made in recent years, LMC President Dr. Miles McCall said

the school’s emphasis will now be to further develop its new programs. “Our focus is on building our historic programs such as Fine Arts, Church Careers, Business, and growing our new programs such as Hospitality Administration and Agricultural Sciences,” Dr. McCall said. “While we don’t have anything else set-in-stone for the future, we are always looking to diversify our academic offerings by adding areas of study which might attract other students to Jacksonville and to Lon Morris College.” According to Dr. McCall, a competitive speech/ debate program may be on LMC’s horizon, and he said the school is exploring the possibility of expanding its capabilities to include some fouryear curriculum. He said growth is essential to the continued existence of any school. “Twenty-five years ago there were 26 twoyear Methodist schools. When I came to Lon Morris five years ago, there were seven. Today there are four. There are only two things that can happen to a college like us – they can grow or they can close – and I really don’t like one of those options,” he said. “Lon Morris College believes it has a responsibility to provide the Jacksonville community with cultural diversity,

fine arts entertainment, collegiate sporting events, spiritual leadership, community service and a unique economic impact for local businesses through the influx of student dollars each year.”

Jacksonville College

A two-year liberal arts college owned and operated by the Baptist Missionary Association of Texas, Jacksonville College strives to naturally integrate faith and a high-quality education to provide a distinctly Christian environment for its students. Academic Dean Tam Clark said the school seeks to help its students realize their full potential – and to Jacksonville College that means more than just pumping the students full of book-smarts. “We want our students to take what they have learned, both in the classroom and as part of the campus community, and we want them to take it a step further. Our goal is for them to become servant leaders in their respective communities,” Clark said. A wide variety of programs and events – like Harvest Fest, Coats for Kids, Boo at the Zoo, the Backyard Bible Club and others - allow

In addition to the obvious benefits of supplying Jacksonville with a welleducated workforce, the presence of three institutions of higher learning is also a substantial boon to the community in a number of other ways. A 2009 study by LMC determined that the school’s students contribute approximately $12 million a year to the local economy, with each of those dollars rolling over several times during the course of the year. “All three of the colleges in Jacksonville have a larger impact than most people realize. That $12 million is just the financial impact of our one college, and the other colleges have a big impact too,” Dr. McCall said. But having a strong educational presence here benefits town in other than financial ways. It also exposes the community to cultural influences and charity programs which otherwise would not be available. When families and businesses give thought to relocating to a new area, scrutiny is always paid to the educational opportunities available at the potential new location. And considering the achievement level and variety of its schools, Jacksonville has earned a spot near the top of any relocation list. “The people of Jacksonville have a phenomenal opportunity here, with the extent of post-secondary education available to them,” Clark said. “To have three fullyaccredited schools and an excellent school district in a town this small is unheard of - and it really provides our community with an advantage.”

students the opportunity to minister to the surrounding population. Jacksonville College has experienced a 22-percent increase in enrollment during the last year, and the school is working to increase its academic offerings in order to better accommodate this growth. Special emphasis is being placed on expanding the distance learning program and implementing an honors program, with this improved curriculum expected to be ready for implementation by the fall of 2011. Upcoming facility improvements include the renovation of the Weatherby Building to add four more classrooms and some additional office space and the construction of a parking lot for the Mary Nell and Summers A. Norman Library.

the cities of Dallas and New Orleans. Kellar Library presently houses a collection of 130,018 total items, including more than 74,000 books, 6,300 audio tapes and 880 video tapes – an impressive collection for a library which did not possess a single book when it first opened in 1957. On-campus housing includes a combination of family-oriented apartments, single family houses and single occupant apartments, all of which have gone through extensive renovation in recent years. A new classroom and library annex facility, named the Roy L. Grimsley Building, was completed in March 2010. This building is being used to house the video conferencing classroom and the seminary’s rare books collection.

Jacksonville Christian School

Jacksonville College is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, and is affiliated with the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention.

Beginning as a lone kindergarten class in 1971, the non-denominational Jacksonville Christian School has grown to offer instruction for pre-K through the 6th grade - while providing a safe, Christian atmosphere for its students.

Baptist Missionary Association Theological Seminary

Offering a low student-to-teacher ratio, JCS provides the kind of personal attention unavailable at larger institutions. Progress in Bible class and the core subjects is monitored using the Stanford Achievement Tests, and the school has a proven track record of consistently producing test results in the 80-100 percentile range on a national scale.

Since breaking ground in 1956, the Baptist Missionary Association Theological Seminary has enthusiastically pursued its mission of preparing men and women who have been called into the ministry. According to Dr. Charley Holmes, president of the seminary, the school has successfully equipped generations of individuals to spread the Word of God. “The BMA seminary has been privileged to provide quality, accredited, Christian higher education to the residents of greater Jacksonville, Cherokee County, as well as nationally and internationally, for half a century,” Dr. Holmes said. “The seminary’s presence has allowed thousands of individuals to learn about ultimate values and improve in their abilities to touch the hearts of those who they serve in the name of Christ.” BMATS is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and by the Association of Theological Schools to award the Associate of Divinity, Bachelor of Arts in Religion, Masters of Arts in Religion, Masters of Arts in Theological Studies and Master of Divinity degrees. Situated in the northeast corner of Jacksonville, the campus is also home to the Kellar Library, the largest theological library located between

A member of the Association of Christian Schools International and the Association of Christian Schools of Texas, JCS offers art, music and physical education programs for its students, and a library consisting of more than 6,000 books. It is the school’s goal to instill in its students the spiritual, emotional, social and academic principles which they will need as they mature into adults. And thanks to the hard work and dedication of its teachers and administrators, JCS is laying a solid foundation for the future of its students. JS

A host of options,

a wealth of care

hen tragedy strikes and skilled medical assistance is needed, there is peace-of-mind in knowing that top-quality treatment options are readily available. And with two state-of-the-art hospitals in town, Jacksonville residents can rest easy with the assurance that - should the worst happen – the best care possible will be available.

TMF-Jacksonville includes Trinity Mother Frances Health and Fitness, The Heart Center, Women’s Center and physician offices. Projects have also been completed in the past few years significantly increasing the hospital’s bed capacity. TMF-Jacksonville is also accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations.

For a city of its size, Jacksonville is blessed with an abundance of exceptional healthcare options. Both East Texas Medical Center and Trinity Mother Frances have facilities in town and each is capable of providing outstanding care.

TMF-Jacksonville is located at 2026 S. Jackson Street. For more information regarding the services available at the hospital, either call 903-541-5400 or visit www.tmfhc.org.

East Texas Medical Center

ETMC Jacksonville staffs highly-trained specialists from an extensive variety of medical fields. The hospital offers specialized treatment in the following fields - anesthesiology, cardiology, dental surgery, family medicine, gastroenterology, general surgery, colorectal surgery, hematology, internal medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, nephrology, oncology, ophthalmology, orthopedics, pain management, pathology, pediatrics, physical medicine/rehabilitation, podiatry, pulmonary medicine, radiology and urology. For those patients whose primary care physician is unavailable or is not on the hospital staff, ETMC Jacksonville also provides hospitalist services – experienced physicians who specialize in taking care of patients during a hospital stay.

In addition to the advanced fitness options offered by ETMC and TMF, Jacksonville’s DCS Fitness center provides its customers with an ample assortment of exercise equipment and the one-on-one assistance of staff personal trainers. Jacksonville is also blessed with a wide array of experienced chiropractors, dentists, pharmacists and vision specialists. With so many high-quality healthcare providers here in town, the only tough decision facing Jacksonville residents who need medical attention is deciding which of these great options to choose. JS

In an effort to revitalize accommodations and improve patient services, the hospital has made numerous renovations to its facilities in recent years. The latest improvements include refurbished patient rooms, stateof-the-art imaging equipment, an Olympic fitness center and the ETMC Breast Center with digital mammography capability. In addition to having the only intensive care unit in Cherokee County, ETMC Jacksonville also provides the county’s only Level III Trauma Center, which works in conjunction with East Texas’ only Level I Trauma Center, ETMC Tyler. The hospital is also accredited with the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations. ETMC Jacksonville is located at 501 S. Ragsdale Street. For more information regarding the services available at the hospital, call 903-5415000 or visit www.etmc.org/jacksonville.htm.

Trinity Mother Frances

Since opening in 2001, TMF-Jacksonville has offered its patients the convenience of having the Trinity Clinic physician’s office within the same medical complex as the hospital itself. This proximity provides better communication of medical information and offers patients more advanced care options. Services at the hospital include a Level IV trauma center, cardiac catheterization laboratory, bone densitometry, cardiology, ear nose and throat, gastroenterology, general surgery, mammography, oncology, orthopedic and joint replacement capabilities, pain management, podiatry, pulmonology, sleep medicine, radiology and other diagnostic services. Trinity Mother Frances provides patients with primary care, urgent care, dental surgery, urology, physical therapy and a hospitalist program. Optometry services will also be added during the first quarter of 2011.

Weathering the storm By Kelly Young

F

or a city of only 15,000 people, Jacksonville boasts an uncommonlyhigh number of industries. And it’s this extraordinarily robust industrial base which has granted the town a measure of stability during trying economic times. Roughly 75 industries are currently operating in Jacksonville, a number close to double the average of other towns of similar size – and this favorable condition is no accident. Darrel Prcin, president of the Jacksonville Economic Development Corporation, believes that community leaders from generations past put special emphasis on attracting industry to town, a goal he says persists today. “Some of the city leadership in the late 1950s and throughout the 1960s made special effort to build a strong industrial base here, and we have taken that precedent and continued with it through current times,� Prcin said. “They set the tone of Jacksonville being a great place to bring your company, and we have done our best to continue that.� Jacksonville manufacturers create a diverse collection of products used by people all over the world. From fishing lures to pole-vaulting poles, from light fixtures to hardwood pallets and from gardening supplies to heating and cooling coils – Jacksonville industries produce it all.

Listed below are just a few of the businesses which have grown their Jacksonville operations or moved into town during 2010: Bob Lee Archery – Makers of archery bows, this business moved its manufacturing process into a new, larger location this year. To help facilitate the change, JEDCO footed the bill for some of the company’s moving expenses. Builder’s Best – Taking on new customers, this business involved in the venting industry is in the process of hiring new employees to compensate for increased product orders. JEDCO has established a performance grant contract with Builder’s Best to help facilitate the hiring of up to 100 additional employees. E.Z.O. Copper Products – This copper forming business purchased the facilities of the defunct Snoke Special Products in March and put approximately 80 local laborers back to work. Fish Central – A distribution center for sea life, this company moved to town in June and took over the old Galaxie Boat Works facilities. Fish Central brought roughly 10 jobs with it when it relocated from Arlington, and has accepted a performance grant from JEDCO to hire up to 20 new employees. Zyklus Heat Transfer – After starting up in Jacksonville in 2009, this manufacturer of manifolds for the heating and cooling industry purchased nearly $2 million worth of new equipment in 2010. JS

JEDCO offers many incentives for businesses looking to expand or relocate to Jacksonville. Enticements to do so include performance grants which pay for each new employee hired, as well as land grants for companies interested in setting up shop within the 131-acre Summers A. Norman Industrial Park and short-term tax abatement agreements. “Communities nationwide have been impacted by an economy which is obviously smarting pretty good right now, but to a large degree, Jacksonville has maintained the businesses that we have here in town,� Prcin said “Like everyone else, we’ve lost a few businesses during the last two-and-a-half years, but we’ve also been able to keep adding new businesses as well. And at a time like this, I have to be pretty pleased about that.�

Becoming known for excellence By Kelly Young

J

acksonville repeatedly found itself in the spotlight during 2010, and received recognition this year from a number of sources around the state. But even as the city’s reputation for quality spreads across Texas, civic leaders and city staffers are working diligently to ensure Jacksonville’s long list of accomplishments continues to grow on into the future.

In July, Jacksonville learned it had been named a Go Texan Certified Retirement Community by the Texas Department of Agriculture. It is only the 34th community in the state to earn this distinction. Before receiving the Go Texan stamp-of-approval, a community must complete a rigorous application process, including a retiree desirability assessment. “The criteria for qualifying for this recognition were many. We had to prove that Jacksonville met their standards in a lot of different areas – available healthcare options, standard of living, employment opportunities, education and entertainment, among others,” said Dr. Robert Haberle, mayor of Jacksonville. “Meeting all their requirements was not an easy accomplishment and it demonstrates that our community is one that has great concern for people of retirement age. Receiving this is something we can be very proud of.”

chosen for the grant, city leaders believe a revamped sports complex would make Jacksonville a sought-after host for state-level baseball and softball tournaments, bringing new people and money into town. This grant would require a 50-percent match by the city, and the Jacksonville Economic Development Corporation has already brokered an agreement with the city to foot the $500,000 needed in matching funds. According to the mayor, Jacksonville is making a name for itself across the state as a place where things get done, and he sees great potential for the community to take that momentum and make even greater things happen in the future. “When I talk to mayors and city managers from other cities around us, they look at Jacksonville as a leader in community development, and that’s something that we really should take some pride in,” Haberle said. “The awards and accomplishments of 2010 show that the greatest resource in Jacksonville is our people. Our citizens have a spirit about them that makes them want to see Jacksonville become the best place to live and work that it possibly can be. And that is why our best days will always be in front of us.” JS

For only the second time in its history, Jacksonville also won a Municipal Excellence Award from the Texas Municipal League in 2010. Each year, TML presents 10 of these awards to municipal governments across the state which demonstrate innovative problem-solving or excellence in management and which strive to increase citizen participation or improve public service levels. Jacksonville’s winning entry -- for the pretreatment program’s Clean Pipe Awards -- was in the Public Works category for cities under 25,000 people. This is the second Municipal Excellence Award in three years, as Jacksonville also took home the prize in 2008 in the Public Safety category. Representatives from the city received the award in October at TML’s annual conference. According to Haberle, the honor demonstrates the exceptional quality of Jacksonville’s staff.

Serving East Texas Since 1950

“The significance of this award for our community is that it shows again that we really are at the forefront of cities who are trying to do things which are innovative, efficient and which reap good rewards for our taxpayers – and we are being recognized for a job-well-done at the state level,” he said. One area where Jacksonville always strives to do well by its citizens is in applying for as many no-match and low-match grants as possible. In the last three years, the city has received more than $2.2 million in grant funds. In addition to the grant monies already received recently, city departments are currently waiting to hear back regarding another million in pending grants. Jacksonville is currently in the running for a $500,000 grant through the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department which would allow for a major overhaul and enhancement of the city’s baseball/softball complex.

Love’s Lookout:

Sample the majesty of East Texas Trees and parking spaces By Kelly Young

A

s one of the most scenic locales in an exceptionally scenic county, Love’s Lookout offers visitors to the park a glimpse of the innate beauty of the surrounding Piney Woods. Park visitors find it stocked with all the amenities expected of a highway rest stop, but if they take a moment to look around, Love’s Lookout also provides an opportunity to experience the natural grandeur of East Texas. Towering 500 feet above the forest floor below, Love’s Lookout showcases the local area’s natural splendor year-round, but is particularly picturesque during the spring – when the dogwoods and other wildflowers are on display in full bloom – and in the autumn – when the site overlooks a vibrant collage of red, yellow, purple and golden foliage as the leaves change color. Located alongside U.S. Highway 69 just south of Jacksonville, Love’s Lookout was originally part of a 600-acre peach orchard. In 1925, the family of John Wesley Love donated 22 acres to the City of Jacksonville, for use as a park. Thanks to a project by the Works Progress Administration during the 1930s, Love’s Lookout featured picnic grounds, an amphitheater, a dance pavilion and a swimming pool for many years. A forest fire lookout tower was also eventually erected at the park by the Texas Forest Service, but this structure has been abandoned in recent years due to the emergence of fire-spotting airplanes. Although closed to the public, the fire tower still stands over the lookout today. The park existed with these features for many years until an uncommon East Texas earthquake in 1981 destroyed the amphitheater and closed the rest of Love’s Lookout for more than two decades. Fortunately the park would be resuscitated in 2004 through a $1.2 renovation project which allowed for the creation of an improved roadside rest area and a new visitor’s center. Since reopening, Love’s Lookout has enjoyed renewed popularity, making it among the most frequented rest stops in all of Texas. Current amenities include a 5,500-square foot information center furnished with restrooms and a sheriff ’s department substation, five picnic arbors, two trellises and vending machines. The visitors’ center and picnic arbors were designed to resemble tomato-packing sheds – paying homage to Jacksonville’s status as Tomato Capital of the World. The visitor’s center is staffed by the Love’s Lookout Welcoming Committee, an all-volunteer group committed to the preservation of this historic site. The Love’s Lookout visitor center can be contacted at 903-586-4868. JS
