  • 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.

  • How do you know when you’re in love?

    The subject of love or even strong like may make some first grade students  squirm  or even stick out their tongue, but if you want to know an honest answer to a simple question, then ask a child. With Valentine’s Day looming, here are the responses the News staff received from first grade students in Grant County and Williamstown schools.
