  • Guest columnist: Addiction nearly cost me everything

    My addiction had finally hit rock bottom. I have been struggling with drug addiction since I was in high school. I was living both sides of the fence. It was like I was wearing a lampshade of who I really was. Many family members and friends were not aware of what I was doing.
    By the grace of God, we all escaped with minor injuries. Every time I see this picture I want to bawl my eyes out. I definitely count my blessings now.

  • Kay’s Branch News: Sad news for our little community

    When I sent in the column last week, I wrote a note to News-Herald Staff Writer Molly Haines saying I wasn’t writing this week because nothing will have happened till the weekend was over. Well, I was wrong again.
    I took a notion to go car shopping on Wednesday. Ann said she could go with me Thursday morning. She was taking her car up early to be serviced at Toyota and could get off at 10 a.m. to accompany me to Bob Allen Chrysler to “just look.” Then I could take her back to Toyota to pick up her car. That sounded like a plan.

    Lightning and heavy rain forced the Rebels’ game on Saturday night with Grant County High School to be pushed back to Sunday night.
    When the night was over, the Braves had put an end to the Rebels three-game winning streak against them as they defeated Owen County 35-10.
