  • I don’t think we’d go that far

    Often we’re challenged with a rhetorical question: “Would you give up your life for someone you love?”  
    I think most of us would answer, yes, of course I would. No question.

  • Online content moves to subscription based Feb. 24

    You may have seen the story on the front of last week’s Grant County News concerning our website moving to a paid model.
    On Thursday next week, the Grant County News website www.grantky.com will become a subscription-based news and information source.
    This does NOT mean there will no longer be a printed version of the Grant County News. We received a phone call after the story appeared, asking if the rumor was true that the Grant County News would only be on the web.

  • WORTH REPEATING:

    “The art of living is more like wrestling than dancing.” ~Marcus Aurelius

  • An enjoyable time at an unexpected place

    I’m pretty sure I would not look good in tights.
    There is simply nowhere to hide all of the neglected exercise.
    Speedos, therefore, would probably be a bad idea as well.
    Simply put, I could not be a professional wrestler.
    The Flyin’ Bryan is not a catchy name in the least.
    These outlandish thoughts came to me rather quickly when I recently went to a WWE, that’s World Wrestling Entertainment for the uninitiated, event in Cincinnati with my dad and older brother.
    I have never been a fan of wrestling.

  • Policies must help create jobs

    The General Assembly returned to full session this week in Frankfort and the Senate continued to focus on initiatives that will protect taxpayer dollars and the unborn.

  • Several bills on way to Senate

    As we returned to Frankfort to resume the 2011 Regular Session of the Kentucky General Assembly, we are faced with issues that are as wide and varied as the monster snowstorm that cut through much of the United States.
    Several bills have already passed through the House of Representatives and are on their way to the Senate for consideration.

  • Kicking a bad habit

    Sitting at my fiancé’s farewell party from Home Depot, I noticed that one of the television’s in the Mellow Mushroom had the show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition on.
    I normally do not watch this show, as it can be heartbreaking to watch these struggling families deal with medical issues or worse, a loss of life.

  • All I need is Nanny’s Hat

    My grandfather met his future wife when he went calling on her older sister, Katherine. The second time he drove the buggy to the house it was to see Holly. She stood just at 5 feet tall, had long black hair, and what could best be described as flashing dark eyes. He was a big fellow, something over 6 feet, and had played football at Centre College in Danville.

  • Granny died with dignity

    As Congress considers repealing the Obama administration’s healthcare bill, public discourse has returned to discussions about end-of-life care.
    In a Newsweek article, published Sept, 12, 2009, called “The Case for Killing Granny” Editor at Large Evan Thomas shared thoughts about his own mother’s decline, loss of quality of life and finally death from emphysema. But Thomas doesn’t stop there, he makes a case for rationing healthcare for the elderly.
