  • What Do You Think Grant County?

    What is the best Valentine’s Day gift that you have ever received?


    There are still honest, caring people
    Near the end of November, I went shopping at a local store. After getting a cart full of groceries in the check out, I discovered my wallet was missing. The cashier was very understanding about the delay. Thinking I had left it in the car, I returned to find a note telling me my wallet was found by my car and had been taken to customer service. Returning to customer service, I found my wallet. Everything intact.

  • County Christmas Party brought joy, laughter

    The County Christmas Party, held on Dec. 10, drew 631 people with activities such as a DJ, face painting, make a necklace, decorate a card for a nursing home resident and make a Christmas tree ornament.
    Because of the generosity of the community, 44 families received Christmas gifts and 13 Christmas trees were delivered. Some families even received clothing for their children. Every child in attendance received books, a stuffed animal and a bag of candy. There was a Santa shop for parents.

  • A word from our readers 1-6-11


    Thanks for the birthday party
    My 100th birthday has been overwhelming! I am deeply grateful for the many, many remembrances of flowers, gifts, foods, money and donations to the Baptist Church and Gideons International given in my honor.
    I was most pleased to see all of you at my celebration and thank you for your many years of friendship. You have my love.

  • Christmas memories - from the community

    A trip down memory lane, cable cars

    How do you know what was your favorite Christmas past? I would like to say mine was Dec. 25, 1992, that was the last one we had with our son, for on Nov. 23, 1993, our son, Chuck was taken from us in a car accident.

  • Give things of eternal value this Christmas

    “Can I have a quarter please!”

    As a mother of four, these words make me cringe—knowing what my little guys are aspiring to get with this precious coin.

    You know, those vending machines at child-eye-level that have little trinkets of no value. Still the asking continues for a toy that will not even make it out of our vehicle into our house of more trinkets of little value.

  • Holiday Memories

    Nuts, fruits and love

    You recently ask readers to submit their favorite Christmas memory. Wow, it makes you stop and think about Christmas past and what is important in your life today compared to what one might have thought was so important all those years ago as a child. Since my parents have passed away, I look back at so many things with fond memories.

    Things are different now and you know what really matters. My mom stayed home with us kids, five to be exact and our dad worked at the Kentucky Department of Highway. We always looked forward to Christmas, as I am sure every kid did and still does today.
