  • Good citizen, indeed

    Fred Domaschko doesn’t consider himself a hero. He told the Grant County Fiscal Court he was just doing what his parents had taught him to do when he found a 3-year-old boy standing on the side of Interstate-75 in Williamstown on a cold, snowy night earlier this month. (See story on page 3.)
    Domaschko dialed 911 and waited with the little guy until help arrived.
    As it turns out, the child managed to get out of his home and walk for over a mile and a half, down an embankment before he was discovered.

  • Tourism director’s position dissolved

    Judy Mullins is being let go 10 years to the day she became executive director of Grant County Tourism and Convention Commission.

    The commission voted during its Feb. 16 meeting to dissolve the position of executive director March 1 and contract administrative services with the Grant County Chamber of Commerce.

    The commission will pay the chamber of commerce $1,700 a month for a year.

    The move will save the tourism commission a little more than $10,000 per year, said commission member Randy Slayback, who made the motion to dissolve the position.
