Today's Opinions

  • An excuse for being ditsy

     

     

    I can honestly say that I have been ditsy all my life; I like to blame the hair color. But being pregnant brings on another whole meaning for me of the term dumb blonde.

  • We want your letters, but there are rules

     

    Last week I was given an opportunity to speak to fourth grade students at Dry Ridge Elementary on Career Day. The students asked questions such as, did you have to go to school for your job, what are your hours, how much do you get paid and do you like your job.

  • Change is coming

    A good change is coming to our online advertising Marketplace.

    Currently everytime you go online at grantky.com, Marketplace ads appear on the top right of each viewed page. These ads rotate every three seconds for seven days.

    Soon, Web site visitors will be able to click and see a map to the advertiser’s location.

    Visitors will also be able to click and go directly to the advertisers, who also have Web sites.

    And, one more click and the visitor can directly e-mail the advertisers who have e-mail addresses.

  • 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.
