Jefferson County Ahead Of The Game

Emergency Management and Jefferson County Law Enforcement Center has strived to keep abreast of new technology that would be of benefit to the county. Often there is mention of new radios bought or some new gizmo being purchased. Often the question is why would a little old county like Jefferson be in need of these things?

As public safety communication continues to evolve pressure is being placed on towns and their local public safety organizations to enhance and improve their systems. Law enforcement agencies are no longer just using voice communication but also data and video applications.

This is not a matter of just getting a new gadget. This process is a lot more complicated than that, and can be extremely expensive. It comes down to safety of the public and law enforcement and fire personnel doing their jobs as efficiently as possible. This takes effective communication.

Looking Back

120 YEARS AGO, 1891

The Fairbury Gazette

The Gazette said a laundry was needed here; soon afterward J.A. Westling established a laundry that operated on Fifth Street east of C.

The Carpenter Nursery's 10 acre vineyard produced 25 tons of grapes worth $2,500.

John H. LeRoy bought the Ingraham jewelry store on the south side of the square.

Finney & Hughes sold their pump and windmill business to John Gibson.

Fairbury Baptists brought a lot at the southeast corner of Sixth and F streets as the site for a church. It continued there until the present edifice was built in 1953. Like Methodists' (see 1871), the site is now a car lot.

The post office at Kesterson, a Burlington station, was discontinued. Postmaster A.S. Daggett had moved away and no one wanted a job.
