2013.01.23 Update: Jeb's death

An article in last week's Observer reported that Fayette's town cat, Jeb, was still living and defying the odds as he crossed Main Street in front of semi-trucks or rested in the middle of Fayette Street as traffic swerved around him.

We learned last week that Jeb died Jan. 11 when struck by a car on Main Street, just a few days before the Observer went to press.

Jeb leaves behind many admirers in Fayette.
