  • Aunt Lucy gives 100 years of love

    When I was a child, someone in their 30s was just plain old.
    When I advanced to my 20s, it seemed that 40-year-olds were fogeys.

    When I hit the 30s, anyone in their 50s seemed over the hill.
    Now that I’m in my 40s, I’m beginning to think that age is just a number.

    I mean I don’t feel old and I really don’t plan on getting old as long as they continue to make hair dye in little bottles.

  • County receives $$ from KACo

    The Grant County Fiscal Court received a check for $10,397 from the Kentucky Association of Counties.

    The check represents a dividend payment to the County from the KACo Workers Compensation Fund, which provides workers compensation insurance coverage to county governments and other political subdivisions across Kentucky.  KACo insures 113 of Kentucky’s 120 counties through the Workers Compensation Fund.
