EDITORIAL >> Our best to Barbara

Jacksonville Alderman Barbara Mashburn suffered a stroke Monday and, at last report, was in intensive care at North Metro Medical Center, but she’s doing well.

Mashburn is one of those easy-to-get-along-with people who aren’t seen often enough on city councils. Mayor Gary Fletcher describes her affectionately as a workhorse. She is one of the founders of the Jacksonville Historical District, which is holding an awards banquet Thursday at the community center, an event that she has worked hard on and now more than likely will miss it.

We know there will be a moment of prayer at the event for her complete recovery. We hope she has many outstanding days ahead on the council and in Jacksonville.
