"A popular government without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power knowledge gives."

The Jackson County Legislative Delegation provided $635,500.00 for the Jackson County Commission out of current Discretionary Funds for the county to use as they see fit. The money will be utilized for the Court Clerks, Courthouse Security, and to pay employees for the full 40 hour week. This years commission general fund income was slightly over $7 million. Next year it has been stated that the general fund revenue will be under $7 million because of a reduction in TVA in lieu of taxes.
