  • Scout Sunday observed at WCC

    Boy Scout Troop 712 and Cub Scout Pack 318 participated in Scout Sunday at Williamstown Christian Church on Feb 6. All scouts were encouraged to wear their scout uniform to their own church and/or participate in their own church’s Scout Sunday program.
    The Boy Scouts of America annually celebrates its founding on Feb. 8, 1910, based on the program started by Lord Baden Powell in England on Aug. 1, 1907. Scout Sunday was added to the Scout celebration in the middle 1940s. Scout Sunday is always the Sunday preceding Feb. 8, unless the date actually falls on Sunday.

  • Special Valentines

    Father – Bobby Jewell
    by – Dora Partin

    I would like to tell you what makes my dad so special. Dad is not only special to me, but to most anyone, who has had the opportunity to know him.

    My dad is the most good-hearted, caring and loving person in the world. He always has a smile on his face and a kind word to say.

    Dad has touched the lives of so many in the Grant County community. When they were sad, troubled or down and out, dad never turned anyone away, but helped them in someway.

  • Special Valentines

    I would like to nominate my son-in-law as my special valentine. Estell Hatter is a husband and father and housekeeper. He is disabled because of epilsepsy.

    His wife, Melissa, brings in their only income so he babysits his three daughters who are in school, plus a 4-year-old son and a 1 ½-year-old little boy. Estell also looks after his 19-year-old son who is slightly mentally challenged.

  • Special Valentines

    My special Valentine is George, my inspiration to keep going and live each day to the fullest. He is my husband, my companion and my rock when obstacles and challenges seem they can never be resolved.

    Although, he is permanently disabled, he is the one person I can count on to bring a smile to my face and to tell me that the obstacles and challenges can be overcome with a little effort.

    He is in the fifth and final stages of Parkinson’s disease.

  • Valentine blooms that keep giving


    I have a handful of phalaenopsis about the house, and three of them have just begun to shoot up a bloom spike that, once in bloom (probably still about a month away), will bloom for months, if I keep them out of direct sunlight. One plant is like 10 fresh cut bouquets, and they are so delicately lovely you just can’t beat them as a nice Valentine gesture.
