  • Grace comes in all sizes

    I’m going to tell you something that will make you crazy. It might make you throw this newspaper down or spit out your coffee. You may send me a scathing e-mail or anonymous letter. You’ll definitely question my Christianity.

    Here it goes: Jeffrey Dahmer might be in heaven.

  • TURNING BACK THE CLOCK 5.12.11

    May 9, 1996

    Grant County was riveted by pea-size to egg-size hail. Damaged properties included Juanita Hedges’s house on Greenville Road, which was filled with holes from the approximate 15 minute storm. Carol Scroggin of Lemon-Northcutt Road spent the day outside, but kept her eyes on the skies, weary of funnel clouds. The Farm Bureau had 113 claims filed and Allstate received 34.

  • Amending the garden, feed the soil

    The rules on amending the soil have changed over the years. Part of the change relates to the fact that good soil is hard to come by in newly developed subdivisions where enormous earth moving equipment is used to level trees and land. This equipment not only removes the valuable topsoil, it also compacts subsoil and kills the living organisms that make up a healthy soil system. The less we disturb the soil the better, but for many the reality is bleak, so some sort of amendment is necessary in order to improve tilth, drainage and nutrition.  

  • ‘Stamp Out’ hunger in Grant County

    As if fighting through rain and snow wasn’t admirable enough for mail carriers, on May 14 they will go above and beyond for the community.

    The U.S. Post Offices in Grant County will hold their annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive for Helping Hands.

    Anyone within the county postal area can place a non-perishable food item in their mailbox and the local carrier will pick it up and deliver it to Helping Hands.

    Residents can also drop off items at any local post office.

  • I wanna be a trillionare

    By: Georgia W. Dahlberg

    The supposed quote from the late Senator Dirkson in the 60s was “A billion here, a billion there, pretty soon you are talking real money!” Perhaps today, it should be a trillion here…, etc.  What exactly is a trillion dollars? Let’s start small and wrap our minds around this. We all can see $1,000…just 10 hundred dollar bills. We can even see $100,000, that’s 100 thousand dollar piles or one thousand 100 dollar bills. With me so far?

  • Bald mayors proven more effective

    We have had a lot of fun with the head-shaving fundraising contest for Grant County’s Relay for Life. Losing all my hair for the sake of a few hundred dollars in donations isn’t a bad trade-off. I am told there is a 37 percent chance that it may grow back in its natural blond tint of years of yore.
