  • PERSONALLY SPEAKING

    Growing up, Halloween was pretty much the same every year.
    Put on that year’s costume (each year, they got less cutesy and progressively scary).
    Grab a bag that my dad got from his work and hit the streets looking for good candy.
    I was always picky about my candy so a lot of it would either go to my older brother or my parents.
    My mom loves the Smarties while my dad enjoyed butterscotch and other hard candies.
    I personally loved the taffy type of candy with some occasional chocolate.

    n, my fiancé Jessica Purnell and I decided we would be our two favorite mascots of the Cincinnati Reds, Rosie and Mr. Redlegs for Halloween.
    What was easy for us was that we already had jersey tops for our costumes, so the remainder of our outfits was going to either be handmade or bought at a sporting goods store.

    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.

  • A WORD FROM OUR READERS . . .

    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.
