  • 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.

    After losing a tough game to Anderson County, the Grant County football team came back home, but it wasn’t sweet, as they lost to Bourbon County 15-7, Oct. 1.

    The loss put the Braves to 2-4 on the season, three straight losses since defeating Pendleton County 31-0 on homecoming night.

    “I was very proud of the fight our boys had that night,” head coach Mike Davis said about the team’s performance. “We had to make some adjustments on defense and we had to pack the box and play well.”

  • Braves football falls to Anderson Co. 46-7

    What: The Braves lost their first district game of the season on the road to Anderson County. Grant County was only able to muster one touchdown against a big defensive line of Anderson County.

    There is a segment of the U.S. population cheerleading in favor of the ground zero mosque. One must ask, why? Imam Rauf says that it is for reconciliation. Really! Mohammed teaches that it is fine to lie to an infidel if it promotes Islam. I do not believe him. Why does he call it “The Cordoba Project?” When Islam defeated Christian Spain, the third largest mosque in the world was erected in Cordoba, Spain, to signify Islams victory over Christianity.
