  • Tearful end to the season

    March Madness came and went in a hurry for the Grant County Braves as they fell victim to Oldham County 65-33, March 1, in the 8th Region Tournament at Henry County High School.

    The Braves sat silent for the hour-long bus ride to the game, by the request of coach Jim Hicks. He wanted them to focus on the game.

    “A big game like this, the boys were ready to play and we had fresh legs going into the game,” Hicks said.

  • Was God punishing us?

    Scripture Verse:
    Now there were some present at that time who told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices. Jesus answered, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans because they suffered this way? I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish. Or those eighteen who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them-do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in Jerusalem? I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish.”

    • Rhonda’s challenge was to continually trust, continually pray, continually praise and have continual peace and safety. If people have little time to pray, they have little power to trust. Where the presence of God is, the great peace of God is.

  • Spring peepers welcome us back

    Absolutely nothing says spring more than the distant chorus of spring peepers. There is a wooded stream just off Conner Station that is home to a cacophonous band of peepers all competing for as many females as they can.  On a warm March evening, especially after a shower, spring peepers remind me of how glorious rural life can be.

    Just by listening a whole other world can be imagined.

  • COUNTY’S PLAN WORKS

    Rick Willoby, Grant County’s director of Emergency Management, has a plan and when a tornado hit Grant County March 2, the plan went into action.

    But he wonders how many Grant County residents have a plan in case of a disaster.

    “You can’t wait until a siren blows to get a plan,” Willoby said. “This time of year is just the start of severe storm weather and you’ve got to know where you’re going to go and how you can check in with others after it’s over.”
