Covering Annie Oakley Days like a Blanket

County News Online is proud to offer the most complete coverage of Annie Oakley Days available in Darke County, with more than 300 photos, stories and commentaries on the nearly week-long event. Many stories were published throughout the week and the week following. Hundreds of additional photos are now available through our CNO Photography tab.

Photos and articles include different perspectives of the Miss Annie Oakley Shootout; The Annie Oakley Festival at the Darke County Fairgrounds; The 5K Run/Walk on Saturday morning, followed by the Walk in Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness and the Annie Oakley Parade.

Several articles and photos are also available on the historic first Gathering at Garst event Saturday and Sunday at Garst Museum. A special offering from Mississiniwa Valley’s Elaine Bailey has also been published featuring many of the performers at The Gathering.

This would not have been possible without the efforts of Bailey; Michelle Miller-Eliott of the Council on Rural Services; Lori Hoover, Greenville High School IMTV instructor; Sue Huston, Greenville and Darke County Career Mentorship advisor; and several young people.

Christy Riley is a young lady who has provided many articles - including Memorial Day activities, YMCA and WIA (Workforce Investment Act) - to County News Online as a Teen Scribe. She has been working with CNO through the WIA and Miller-Eliott, her advisor. Christy has also posted poems and opinions on the Teen Scribes page.

Three new Reporter-Photographers have joined CNO as interns thanks to Hoover and Huston.

Jessica Transue is a GHS senior in the Interactive Media program. Her primary interest is in graphics and web work. She has created most of the special banners you see at the top of news, community and other index pages, as well as formatted the photos of events and other art that you see on the right side of those pages. She has also covered several events, including the groundbreaking of Integrity Ambulance in Greenville, plus photo coverage of this year’s Farm Power of the Past. Watch for a brief bio on Jessica coming soon.

Naiesha Thobe is a GHS senior who comes to County News Online through referral from Huston’s Career Mentorship Program. Her primary interest is in writing, but will also take photos as needed. She has published a variety of stories, including the Eagles and Ansonia’s Independence Day Celebrations and the County Mentorship Program. She has also published movie reviews and other articles of interest on the Teen Scribes page. Watch for a brief bio on Naiesha also.

Dylan Hoover is a GHS junior in the Interactive Media program. His interest is exclusively in photography. He has already been introduced, along with some of his photos. To check them out, click here.

There are two other individuals who have joined the CNO volunteers. One is a student intern and the other is an old guy like the author. You won’t see their names in published articles, but their efforts will be just as important in bringing news, opinion and information to CNO readers.

Working behind the scenes is Austin Bell. He is in the GHS Career Information Systems Career Tech program. He is currently working to learn the coding that County News Online uses to post its various articles and photos.

Finally, the latest volunteer is Al Bliss, Senior Scribe. He has been formatting the vast majority of articles that are currently being published. Without his help, the CNO “Blanket” of Annie Oakley Days could easily have taken another month to bring to readers.

County News Online wishes to thank all of these individuals for their help and dedication. CNO would also like to extend its thanks to the Senior Scribes, sponsors and readers who have helped accomplish more than 700 percent growth since January, making County News Online one of the fastest growing news, opinion and information sites in the area.
