Sign honoring longtme community activist to be erected

A sign in honor of Russell County community activist J.C. Dykes will soon be erected at the Russell County Recreation and Sports Complex in Seale, Ala.

Dykes has been a longtime supporter of athletics at Russell County High School and in the Seale community, where he is a former president of the Dixie Youth baseball league.

He's been in failing health in recent months, leading the Russell County Commission to pass a resolution that the sign be placed at the sports complex near the site of the T-Ball fields.
