I hear this song in my head...

"Would you like to ride in my beautiful balloon
Would you like to ride in my beautiful balloon
We could float among the stars together, you and I
For we can fly we can fly
Up, up and away
My beautiful, my beautiful balloon"

RIP Knox county slain.

Cost is free to get into event, If you want to ride in balloon for a ride across the great blue sky 150 dollars. Tethered rides ( tied down by 3 anchor trucks)are for donation. 11 balloons launched last night and came back for night GLOW, It was an awesome site! There is bounce house and games for kids and The Aviation Museum which my kids really enjoyed.I will be thereagain tomorrow (today) serving the masses cold beverages & food. 6:30 AM launch, fun all day and evening launch at 6:00 pm. sign up for full ride or tethered ride. Tell them Jack sent you!

I'm kinda curious as to why this event is being held more than an hour's drive from Knox County. It seems to me that since the victims lived here and the community rallied around Sarah and the families, that it would make the most $$$ here. We even have two airports to choose from.

Whenever I hear of strangers victimized by crime I always think of hot air balloons. And vice versa.

Why is it legal to release helium balloons when you can get a $500 ticket for dropping a cigarette butt in the street?

There aren't enough hot air balloons for all the mass murders in rural Ohio these days.

Why are there always trolls like you just looking to stir people up by making stupid statements? Crawl back under your bridge now and leave decent people alone.
