  • Our Opinion

    How many have heard if you can’t say something nice, then don’t say anything at all?

    While this may be an antiquated notion by younger generations, it applies to those working for and with the public.

    There is NEVER any reason for a public official or public employee to curse or name call.

    At a recent fiscal court caucus meeting, heated discussion took place over operations at the Grant County Animal Shelter.

  • We’ve got to market what we’ve got

    It’s no secret that I like a good corndog and funnel cake and some of the best of both can be found at the county fair and even better ones can be found at the state fair.

    I went to the state fair this year along with a host of Grant County 4-H ham project kids and their parents.

    Grant County was well represented as the 4-H kids brought home many blue and red ribbons in only their first year of country ham competition.

    Other Grant County 4-Hers and adults earned ribbons for photography, sewing, baking, art work, showing animals etc.

  • Boys’ soccer still aiming for record breaking win

    The Braves soccer team is still looking for the record-breaking win, but for coach Clay Mattingly, it is only a matter of time before his team gets it.

    “I’m not worried about it,” he said, after the team tied Walton-Verona Oct. 2. “We know it will come. We are focused on one game at a time, starting with Owen County Thursday night.”

    The game with Owen County at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 7, will be Senior Night for 11 of Mattingly’s players. They will celebrate the culmination of four years playing in the program.

  • It’s a dog-gone shame

    I’m probably the only person in this county that feels this way, but in my humble opinion, the Grant County Animal Shelter is taking itself a bit too seriously.  

    Now, I care as much as anyone about animals. All my life I have cared for and been surrounded by a whole host of animals. But with this comes a dose of common sense. To have a pet, you have to be able to accommodate it and it fit to your needs, etc.

  • Lady Braves get one last go-round at home

    It hasn’t been an easy season for Grant County soccer coach Melinda White, but she has taken her program to a 7-7-2 record going into their final regular season home game.

    With the final game at home, the Lady Braves will be celebrating the careers of three seniors, Jackie Kinman, Renee Neltner and Rebecca Saylor, before the game.
