    Furnish sisters: gentle ladies, farmers

    A line from an Irish blessing bids, “May you always have work for your hands to do.” No one would agree with that more than Frances Furnish and her sister, Eileen, who have spent a good part of their lives as farmers.
    A resident of Grant Manor Care and Rehabilitation Center in Williamstown for the past two years, Frances recently won the Sunbridge Healthcare Art from the Heart contest with her “Sun Bonnet Sue” hand sewn quilt.

    We picked up garbage and some of that stuff was nasty. People should know better not to throw trash on the road. I know I will never do that cause someone like me may have to pick it up. It makes the roads look messy and not beautiful like they should look. People can take that stuff to a garbage can. It taught me one thing – do not pitch stuff out of a car window. Thank you for letting us do this and give back to our community.

    Thank you for allowing us to do a soccer fundraiser. Our school is letting us start a new soccer team and the fundraiser will help us buy things we need. Picking up trash on our roads really helps our county stay beautiful and helps keep our environment clean and safe. It is a great activity because it helps us with our new soccer program and it helps our environment too.

    It would be a whole lot better if people wouldn’t litter. It would also save our planet. People would get more money too. Just saying, it would really make people happier.

    My middle school cheerleading squad cleaned up several roadways in Grant County. My group went on a road in Dry Ridge and on a road by Lloyd’s Wildlife. We found a large amount of trash scattered on the roadsides. It was very sad to see and I don’t understand why people cannot use trash cans or the local landfill to get rid of their waste.

    In the city of Dry Ridge, criminals are having a field day. I am co-owner of a recycling center in Dry Ridge. Last month, thieves stole copper wire from our business. On the night they began their escapades, they were stopped by a Williamstown policeman, who discovered the wire in the back of their vehicle. For reasons that have still not been explained to me, the thieves were allowed to return the stolen material and leave without even a citation. In our security camera video, we see the policeman actually showing one of the thieves exactly where our camera is positioned.

    The editorial team at the Grant County News works on a lot of special projects, which are above and beyond the normal weekly coverage provided in the Grant County News and Grant County Express.
    We’ve put together special sections that contained a 24/7 look at Grant County which was chock full of photos from a 24-hour period in our community. We’ve also put together specialty sections such as one on the horse community, one on 4-H and an annual one devoted to inside our schools.

    In the “Personally Speaking” section of the Grant County News on Oct. 12, 2010, Linda Lawrence’s column “Hope to see you at the polls” pointed out the obligation and privilege it is for each of us to vote—but we need to be informed. This column needs to be reprinted every election year.
