  • The rejuvenating powers of going home

    The last time I was in Augusta, Ga., I didn’t even spend half a day there.

    It was May of 2008 and I took a week off of work. I spent a couple days in Clinton, S.C. for Presbyterian College’s graduation, seeing friends a year behind me take the same long walk across the stage as I had the previous year.

    I spent a couple days on the beaches of Charleston, S.C., soaking in the sun and letting any stress I had blow away with the cool ocean breeze.

  • It must be puppy love

     

    I’ve never been one to love Valentine’s Day.

    Don’t even get me started with Sweetest Day.

  • Kudos, thanks and way to go

     

    On Wednesday, Jan. 28, 2009, my husband and I awoke to a crashing sound outside our bedroom window.  It was the awning we had installed last summer giving up the ghost under about four inches of snow, which was under about two inches of ice which was being covered by about three more inches of snow.  

  • Smooth transition

     

     

     

     

  • Adventures in the snow

     

    Last week the blizzard struck Grant County. Of course, like any true Floridian, I was miserable. I mean come on, snow, then ice, then more snow.

  • Better late than not at all

     

     

    The Grant County News has not switched to a different delivery day.

  • An accidental memory

    Growing up in Georgia, we were lucky to see real snow once every five years.

  • Our opinion - Thumbs down

    The snow is falling and forecasters are predicting ice to follow. The majority of Grant County residents only ventured out on Tuesday, Jan. 27 if they needed to get to work or had to be somewhere, but there were a few who decided to test their four-wheel drive vehicles on the roads.

    That’s just not smart, especially when a Level Two Snow Emergency has been declared. This type of emergency doesn’t mean the roads are closed, but it means that travel on them only if necessary.
