  • You’ve got the power!

    In this week’s issue of the Grant County News, you’ll find a very powerful and hopefully very useful tool.
    The 2011 Guide to Grant County - a guide to the people, places and events that make Grant County a good place to live is included in this issue.
    The News staff has spent the last few months, and yes, it literally takes months to update all that information, calling, e-mailing, visiting (closely related to stalking) people in our community to bring you the absolute most up-to-date information that’s available.

  • Controlling insects on indoor plants

    Have you noticed a sticky substance on the floor beneath your ficus or philodendron?

  • GCHS cheerleaders nab fourth straight regional title

    The seniors on the Grant County High School cheerleading squad accomplished a feat not many cheerleaders have done before, claiming their fourth straight regional title Jan. 8 at Shelby County High School.

    The squad, which competes in a 2 ½ minute routine, which incorporates music and dance, scored the highest out of all of the schools in the 8th Region. Grant County competes in the 16-school medium division and when it came time for warm-ups, head cheerleading coach Leigh Simpson was unsure of how well they were going to compete.
