Today's Opinions

  • The things we do

    When life is stale, be adventurous. Be spontaneous. That has somehow been embedded in my head. When I feel myself doing the same thing day after day, I have to try something new or do something out of the ordinary.

    Last weekend I was starting to feel stale. I was fighting the flu all week (doing poorly) and I hadn’t gotten much of anything accomplished. My days consisted of going to work and rushing back home for Tylenol and a lazy night.

    Needless to say, Sunday, I needed something fresh.

  • Meeting real-life heroes an amazing experience

    It’s not everyday that you meet real-life heroes.

    I got the pleasure of meeting three this past weekend during the 65th anniversary of D-Day in World War II.

    I only spent about 90 minutes with Jouett Faulkner of Dry Ridge and two of his fellow former Army medics, but I could have listened to them all day.

    The trio were part of the 60th Medical Battalion that stormed Omaha Beach in Normandy, France.

    It was difficult to not be in awe sitting with them, listening to them tell their stories.

  • Blame it on the washer

      It all started when our washer machine blew up and flooded the entire laundry room.

  • Relay rocks Grant County

      WHEW! The 2009 Grant County Relay For Life is in the history books now. But what a night it was!

  • Family matters

     

    It’s not easy to write a column. I can spend several hours, even days trying to figure out a subject to write about.

    I think about what’s going on in America, what’s going on in Grant County and what interests me. But sometimes, I still come up blank, so I’m going to write about what I know best. My family.

  • It's good to be back

     

    This summer I will be involved in the community not as a resident but as a student intern at the Grant County News.

  • Times are tough all over

     

     

    Community news or the snippets of life that matter to  Grant County people are the backbone of any community newspaper.

  • Getting the retirement itch at 29

     

    I’ve been thinking a lot about retirement lately.

    Sure, I will only turn the big 3-0 in July, but is it ever too early to dream?
