Yesterday, a ceremony was held marking the start of replacing the existing grass football field with a state-of-the-art synthetic turf at the Ashland High School's Phillips Field. The $1.56 million project was kicked off by a donation of $650,000 by AHS alum and major league baseball pitcher Jeremy Guthrie. Below, current AHS Football Coach Charlie Hall and former football coach and athletic director Jim Nagel hold one of the ceremonial gold-painted shovels.

A scene this morning as the local freight rolled through town. It's a rare boxcar that hasn't been

the boxcar as it moves down the track.

Jeez Louise were playing near the entrance to Lithia Park a few days ago. They were on their way back from gigs in Austin, Texas to their home in Eugene, Oregon. As the sign indicates on the guitar case, they describe their unique sound as "nasty swing".
