  • Which one was the nut?

    July 13 was an absolutely beautiful day. It was the first day in the long stretch of sticky, hot summer days in Grant County when the humidity was actually bearable.

    I actually found myself doing something that I don’t get to do near enough. I left the cool comfort of my corner office and was driving Grant County’s picturesque backroads.

    My mission: Find people and talk to them. Find photos and take them and that’s what I did.

  • A miracle: My look into being a new uncle

    It came as an unexpected phone call on a warm Wednesday afternoon that my sister, Beth, was going to be having her baby.

    The butterflies in my stomach began churning away, as I knew that I was going to be holding my niece or nephew that night, as both Beth and Claus didn’t want to know the sex of the baby before he/she was born.

    I drove from the Grant County News office all the way up to Good Samaritan Hospital in Cincinnati anticipating the moment I would see the baby’s face.

  • SPORTS TALK ... Reminiscing my running days

    I had never heard about a team practicing at midnight in high school.

    Yes, I know there are plenty of college basketball teams that gather that night inside an arena, but for the Grant County High School cross country team, a 23-year tradition convened on July 15.

    Now, I will admit I was weary of working that late into the morning hours of Friday due to getting the Grant County Express done for Friday at 1 p.m., but it was a neat experience for me to witness.

  • Hudson siblings to compete in Junior Olympics

    For Bryan and Halee Hudson of Williamstown, the thought of going to the AAU Junior Olympics was a shocker when they competed in the national qualifier at Wittenburg University in Springfield, Ohio July 2 and 3 in shot put, discus and javelin events.

    “I am excited and nervous,” Halee said. “There is going to be more people there with more experience than I do, but I am still looking forward to it.”

    Bryan said as soon as he found out he was excited.

    For their parents, Mandi and Chuck, it is an inspiring moment for their children.
