  • The things we do

    When life is stale, be adventurous. Be spontaneous. That has somehow been embedded in my head. When I feel myself doing the same thing day after day, I have to try something new or do something out of the ordinary.

    Last weekend I was starting to feel stale. I was fighting the flu all week (doing poorly) and I hadn’t gotten much of anything accomplished. My days consisted of going to work and rushing back home for Tylenol and a lazy night.

    Needless to say, Sunday, I needed something fresh.

    “We’ve got a whole bunch of positions open and we’re looking to fill them,” Davis said.

  • Sheriff's office audit findings released

     State Auditor Crit Luallen released the audit of the 2008 financial statement of the Grant County Sheriff, Charles Dills.

In compliance with this law, the auditor issues two sheriff’s reports each year: one reporting on the audit of the sheriff’s tax account and the other reporting on the audit of the fee account used to operate the office.

  • Draper awarded scholarship for auto body work

    Heather Draper isn’t afraid to take on the boys. “They all got mad because I finished first in the class.” Draper, a senior at Grant County High School, said about the boys in her auto body class at Boone County vocational school.

    Draper said she notices that auto body finishing is normally a male dominated field and it is more difficult for women to advance. “I have to work harder to prove myself.” Draper said. And, that’s just what she did.

  • GCMS team takes second at tournament

    With a high-powered offense and pressure defense, the Grant County Middle School girls’ team earned a spot in the Sports of All Sorts tournament championship.

    However, the Lady Braves fell to Gray 53-39 on May 19.

    The Lady Braves had defeated Tichenor and Woodland to make the championship, but then had to turn around and play Gray.

    “They were out of juice,” coach Ruth Epperson said. “They were exhausted and I knew it when they got to the championship game. I hate to lose, but the girls were exceptional and played as a team.”

    “The opportunity was just right,” Logano said. “I knew I had to have a run and he needed to slip up for me to get there. It worked out perfect.”
