200 Attend Jim Rogers Memorial Bike Ride

The 5th  annual Jim Rogers Memorial Ride on Sunday  drew nearly 200 bicycle riders together to   remember the local man who in 2010 was killed on Highway 174   by a distracted driver  who was allegedly using her cell phone at the time of the accident.        Rogers’ widow, Carolyn Jones-Rogers and family friend Karen Wallack-Eisen were at the starting line when all of the bicycle riders raised their hands to take an oath.
