The Sylva Herald


The Sylva Herald is a treasured part of life in Jackson County. It chronicles local events and features local history and lore as well. Although this weekly newspaper is a source of Nineteenth and early Twentieth Century history it’s definitely a Twenty-First Century publication with its online presence. Our long time friend and neighbor, Lynn Hotaling recently retired from her position as editor after thirty-one years on the staff.

Today’s edition features two treats. The front page article details a new discovery in the world of zoology made by a team that includes Lynn & Richard’s son Scott Hotaling, a graduate student at the University of Kentucky. The other is a banner across the front page of one of the sections declaring “The Ebbing Herald” in honor of the movie whose filming has been dominating life in downtown Sylva recently!

All Because of an Eclipse

All Because of an Eclipse

It was a fabulous opportunity to not only view the 2024 Solar Eclipse from within the path of totality but also to enjoy a five day weekend with friends from the T@B trailer community at Ohio’s East Harbor State Park on the shore of Lake Erie.
