  • Method to the madness

    While some businesses may never hear when their customers are upset, a community newspaper is different.

    After the many calls we’ve received wondering where the TV listings are, I know we’ve got some unhappy customers.

    The TV listings have been part of the Grant County News since 1992. As times changed, so did the look and information they contained. We’ve been happy to provide our readers with this service, but unfortunately we will no longer be able to include them inside our pages.

  • Getting a real world education

    It’s funny when I look back on my time in high school because when it was over, I thought that things would never be the same.

    I had a world set up where I knew mostly everybody, could leave during free periods and was cruising through my senior year enjoying every moment.

    I had lived in Augusta for 13 years and knew every street and what I liked and loved about the city.

    But after I graduated high school, I knew that life was going to change, sooner rather than later.
