  (Ms. FOXX asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 
minute and to revise and extend her remarks.)
  Ms. FOXX. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor a pillar of the Ashe 
County, North Carolina, community, WKSK radio and its owner Jan 
Caddell. Most of the Fifth District of North Carolina is a rural 
landscape, and beautiful, mountainous Ashe County is no exception.

  As people who live in rural America well know, local radio stations 
are often the lifeblood of vital community life. WKSK radio is just 
such a radio station, and recent audience measurement results 
illustrate just that. According to these results, WKSK has the most 
loyal local audience in its home county of any station in North 
  Next year, WKSK will celebrate the 50-year mark of service to the 
people of Ashe County. The fact that nearly 55 percent of listeners in 
Ashe tune their radios to WKSK, seven times more than the next closest 
station, is a true testament to the emphasis that WKSK places on 
serving Ashe County.
  WKSK radio is a real community fixture, and I wish the station 50 
more years of sterling service to the High Country.
