  • Lady Braves off to a slow start

    The Grant County Lady Braves softball team is off to a slow start.  
    After all the rain and snow outs, the season is getting underway.  
    The softball squad has played five games on the season and their record is 1-4.  The Lady Braves lost a hard fought contest on March 17 against Ryle by the score of 9-4.  
    Alayna Barnes took the mound for the Braves allowing 10 hits and nine walks during the contest. She also had two strikeouts.  

  • Spring break saved; Grant out June 5

    Mounds of snow can’t melt away spring break hopes again for Grant County students.
    With snow days piling up for Grant County Schools because of inclement weather, there was a chance spring break could have been used for makeup days for a second consecutive year.
    The school board was set to discuss calendar options, including extending the school day and using parts or all of spring break, during its March 12 meeting.

  • In obediance

    Jesus Christ gave His life for us, so that we have life abundantly. He covered our sins, paying huge debts. Why not give our lives for the service of the Lord? Living for Jesus is more meaningful than living for ourselves. How shall we follow His footsteps, so that others can see Him through us?
    Prayer. It is our personal relationship with God.
    Live as God called us. Everyone is precious in the eyes of the Lord. We must remember that God sees everyone the same and loves everyone equally.

  • Weather pushes school calendars into June

    Bad weather hasn’t wrecked havoc on Grant County Schools as much as last year — at least not so far.
    Still, even with several snow learning days to soften the blow, the district is discussing plans to keep from going to school further into June.
    One possibility is losing part or all of spring break for a second consecutive year.

  • It’s the party, dummy!

    You know what really irks me? When people at work don’t turn off the bathroom light when they’re done.
    Our company is trying to reduce expenses and one of the easiest things to do is Turn. Off. The. Light!
    I don’t know if it’s a problem with the men’s bathroom, although I’m guessing it is. So, men: Turn. Off. The. Light. Too!
    There, I said it, and that sure felt good.
