Today's Opinions

  • I'm ready to fight- are you?

     

    The sun has been shining and that puts me in a good mood.

    There’s something about hearing birds chirping, seeing the trees and bushes budding and catching a subtle scent of lilac in the air that just makes me feel good.

  • Don't judge us unless you know us

     (Editor’s Note: April is National Autism month.)

  • Papa Jack, a local treasure
  • Doc Scroggins and Amazing Jane

    “I plain wanted to be a country doctor and I never regretted the choice,” Doc Scroggins said. But, the truth is, though he was a country doctor, his influence stretched throughout the United States and flowed into Europe, Asia and anywhere else that there was wildlife and farmland.

    Doc Scroggins’ medical career had him mending the aches and ills of Grant County for half a century. He was president of the League of Kentucky Sportsmen, president of the National Charlois Association and president of the National Wildlife Federation.

  • Sad farewell to Sadie Evelyn

    I’m sorry to inform our readers of the passing of Sadie Evelyn Lusby.

    She died at 11:40 a.m. on Monday, April 6.

    Sadie Evelyn was a community correspondent for the Grant County News for more than 20 years.

    Her inaugural column appeared in the June 16, 1988 issue of the Grant County News.

    In her opening sentence, Sadie Evelyn wrote “The new correspondent muses if Elizabeth Taylor could have posed for the picture.”

    It is the custom that all community correspondents have their photo appear weekly with their column.

  • Lessons learned through heartache

     

    Life is short and you need to hold on tight to the ones you love.

    Those are two lessons I have learned recently as I watched people deal with devastating heartache.

  • Let the sun keep shining!

     

    One of the first things that I share with students when I am asked to speak about being a journalist or working at the Grant County News, is that just because I’m a reporter doesn’t mean I have special privileges.
