Bluegrass event fills the seats By NATALIE JOHNSON nata/ie@masoncoun com When a problem with its website slowed online ticket sales, event organizer Greg Linder said he was nervous this year's Blue- grass from the Forest would be smaller than usual. "We didn't know what to expect until it happened," he said. Despite the issue, Linder said Saturday afternoon that the 2014 festival, the 10th anniversary of Kristmastown Kiwanis' Bluegrass from the Forest, was on pace to be the biggest one yet. He said the festival had more campers than ever on the mostly sunny weekend. "(We've had) great comments on the bands," Linder said. The festival was headlined this year by the Virginia-based band Junior Sisk & Ram- blers Choice. Sisk was recently named the 2013 Inter- national Bluegrass Music Association male vocalist of the year. The band's single "The Story of the Day that I Died" was nominated for song of the year. see BLUEGRASS, page A-28 Journal photo by Natalie Johnson Byrd to run for County Commission Former chief deputy faces incumbent Jeffreys STAFF REPORT news@masoncounty, corn Former Mason County Sher- iffs Office Chief Deputy B.
