Jacksonville votes in favor of millage

JACKSONVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) -- The votes are in and it looks like the new Jacksonville School District is getting the money to build new schools.

Tuesday’s millage vote passed with 55 percent for and 44 percent against.

The money will go to building a new high school, elementary school and adding four multi-purpose classrooms to another elementary school.

Education Corp. Spokesperson Laura Walker said that the voter turnout was surprising.

Taxes for the city will now increase to $152 for every $100,000 in home value. The millage covers about 45 of the $80 million needed to fund the new district.

Jacksonville confident millage vote will pass

JACKSONVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) -- On Tuesday, the city of Jacksonville will face the final barrier in getting its brand new high school a millage vote.

The vote is for 7.6 mills, which would increase taxes $152 for every $100,000 in home value.

The district has about $80-million to fund. If it passes the mill will cover upwards of $45-million of that. If not, however, they'll have no way of getting money.

“This has been decades in the making,” said Jacksonville North Pulaski School Board President Daniel Grey. “We are looking to improve upon our schools and our facilities for our kids.”

There are two types of confident in this world. Self-assured confident and Daniel Grey confident.

“We're excited man,” he said. “Ready to set some records and see how much we can run it up.”

Sherwood firefighter laid to rest

JACKSONVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) - On Thursday, family, friends and colleagues said goodbye to a man they call a hero in the community. 

Hundreds, if not thousands, of men and women wearing black, blue and tan uniforms filled the McArthur Church in Jacksonville, where first responders from all over came to pay their respects to Lt. Jason Adams.

Those who knew and loved the 29 year-old shared memories of his bravery and service he provided for the people in the community.

"The thing about Jason and the choices he made in his life is that he just went all out, no fear. Because he wasn't worried about him. He was worried about you. You don't go out and do the jobs that these men and women do and do it for yourself, because it's not about them. It's about us," said one of the funeral attendees.
