  • Gail Ward
    Sometimes the staff of The Fairbury Journal-News must get together and brainstorm to come up with subjects for the Friends of Fairbury feature. Other times, an idea literally walks through the front door. A man came into the office to inform us that Gail Ward was retiring from the Senior Center after 28 years and suggested we do a story on her.

    **Fairbury Public Schools - Closed Tuesday**

    From Superintendent Stephen Grizzle:

    "Even though conditions have improved, with dropping temps overnight, conditions will not improve fast enough for us to have school tomorrow, so we are cancelling again with no evening activities as well."

    Happy Friday the 13th! I like to do a holiday column whenever a holiday rolls around. Except, Friday the 13th isn't a holiday.
    Except, it kinda is.

    Up until this Winter sports season, only 5 wrestlers in the history of Fairbury high school had cracked the 100 career win mark. Fairbury has had it’s fair share of success on the mats over the years, but this exclusive club had few members. That was until Derek Garfield, head coach of the Jeff wrestling team came in three years ago with his passion for the sport, that in turn has spilled out to his teams over the years. Achieving the 100 win mark is nothing easy, it takes years of hard work.
