  • Greasing the skids for the Democrats

     

    There was a vote a couple of weeks ago that affected filibusters by individual United States Senators.

  • U.S. 25 Yard Sale is growing

     

    Spring has finally sprung and before you know it, the U.S. 25 Yard Sale will be here.  Grant County had a wonderful turn-out last year and this year will be even better. This year’s date is June 6, June 7 and June 8 and now is the time to start getting ready.  We have established the first Thursday, Friday, and Saturday in June every year for the yard sale.

  • A WORD FROM OUR READERS . . .

    Where did respect
    for others go?
    I would like to commend Deborah Lucas Angel for her recent column “What a waste!”. She was right on the money concerning laziness of shoppers. As an employee of Wal-Mart, I see this everyday.

My dad then left me and my older brother with my elderly grandparents on a search for another woman. My grandfather passed away, leaving us with our grandmother to care for us.

    Arsonists must have

  • This reader is tired of all the inaccuracies

    After reading the “Guest Column” by Chuck Estridge that sounded like every television political commercial, I had to respond to the falsehoods and inaccuracies that the column contained.
