Hatcher named 7th in state

Fairfield High School junior Jashaugn Hatcher made Fairfield proud while competing at the Texas High School State Powerlifting Meet in Abilene last weekend. Hatcher competed in the 198 weight class and finished 7th in the State. His lifts totaled 1,430 for the day, although not as high as his regional total of 1,515. Hatcher was accompanied by Head Coach Kevin Childers and Coach Joel Kuehl, as well as friend and teammate Ty Bachtel. There was a small group of "fans" who followed him out west and will continue to support his lifting efforts to meet new goals his senior year.

“This is real life,” said Fairfield junior Morgan Treece to a group of about 50 students who participated in the walk out she planned. Treece planned the event, held March 20 at Fairfield High School, to show her support of the victims and families of school shootings.

“This has been something that has been very heavy on my heart recently,” she said. “I'm just blessed to have had such a great support group.”

Since the beginning of 2018, there have been 18 school shootings across the country, with the most recent being the Valentine's Day shooting at Florida's Marjorey Stoneman Douglas High School.

“I wanted to use my voice as an positive outlet for those who no longer have a voice,” she said. “There were parents who lost their children, kids who lost their friends, and siblings who have lost their brother or sister.”

Treece said she was really only expecting her close friends and herself to participate.

2 chosen for Market Days

After entering an executive session at approximately 7:30 p.m. at the mayor's office at 121 E. Commerce – and not emerging from that session until close to midnight – Fairfield city council members voted to hire both Amy Ralstin and partners David Butler and David Fairly as Market Day directors.

The monthly event will be held both at the fairgrounds and on the square. Fairly and Butler will host their event on the third weekend of each month, beginning in April. The duo hope to bring the flea market back to what it was in the 1990s, with cheaper rates and new vendors.

“We want food vendors, plants, resale, clothes, guns, knives,” said Fairly in an interview after the meeting.

Fairly said his market will be held Friday-Sunday at the fairgrounds.

City starts audit negotiations, stops water discussion

To City Administrator Jeff Looney's own detriment the council shut down a discussion regarding commercial master meters for local RV parks and apartment complexes. Place 5 Councilman – and mayor candidate – Kenny Hughes said “for the council to even continue considering this would be a disservice” to citizens.

“I've researched and talked to people,” explained Hughes. “This would effect two elderly apartments and an economically challenged apartment.”

MJ and John Alford – former owners of Westwood Utility Corporation – asked the council to rethink this decision in February based on research done on their part. The Alford's own Primrose RV Park on U.S. 84 in Fairfield and said in a previous meeting that their “water supply doesn't overly burden the City of Fairfield.”

MJ also said last year the RV park used 216,200 gallons of water for a total cost of $2,357.
