"Also a big thanks to everyone in our community on Saturday. We had a large bicycle event that crossed major highways in several locations. This event went off flawlessly with everyone's help."

Sheriff Ringhausen praised Rita Robertson with the Jersey County Against Drugs Coalition for her participation and Mayor Morrow.

"It was great that Mayor Morrow was there showing his support and Rita also played a big role," he said. "I feel events like these are a great way to communicate with the public on your stances on things. We are all in this together. The QEM Fire Protection District team and our other area fire agencies do such a good job protecting the region. Their busy time is coming with potential fires along the bluff areas. They deserve our support."
