  • Where’s the beef? At Michael’s Steakhouse

    Michael Scroggins worked for Wal-Mart for 20 years, but he really wanted to own his own restaurant.

    On April 6, his dream became reality when he opened Michael’s Steakhouse in Williamstown.

    The county’s newest restaurant features hand-cut fresh steaks cooked to order.

    “We wanted to open a restaurant in Williamstown and keep the prices reasonable,” said Scroggins.

    Neither Michael nor his wife, Becky, had owned a restaurant before.

    Michael said the first couple of days were a “learning curve for all of them.”

  • Weekend Gardener

    April 22 is Good Friday and Earth Day so we should all be in a good frame of mind to do our part to improve the world. Next Friday, we can put it to good use and plant some trees in celebration of Arbor Day. Surely we can top the first Arbor Day in 1872, when it was estimated that one million trees were planted in Nebraska alone.

  • Girls on the Run

    When Tabatha Clemons became involved with Girls on the Run in Grant County, she imagined a large number of young girls getting involved with running and learning some life lessons along the way.

    Sherman Elementary and Crittenden-Mt. Zion Elementary were the first schools to jump on board last spring.

    Clemons, the Grant County Parks and Recreation director, said the program became popular after the spring season and when Williamstown, Dry Ridge and Mason-Corinth Elementaries came on board.
