  • Dirt is moving at technology center

    With the sound of a shovel hitting dirt, a dream is closer to a reality at Grant County High School.

    The Grant County School District officially broke ground Aug. 10 on a nearly $10 million career and technology education center.

    The center, which will be a 34,000 square-foot addition to the high school, has been “a long time coming,” said Superintendent Michael Hibbett, who was joined by school board members.

  • A WORD FROM OUR READERS . . .

    Why have an ordinance if it is never followed? No one at the courthouse can explain this to me. In our animal ordinance, the definition of “animal” is all vertebrate creatures. Our animal control officer is supposed to take care of all domestic animals. That would include dogs, cats and livestock. But it seems our county officials keep interpreting “animals” as dogs.
