Former editor praises newspaper, community PDF Print E-mail

Greetings Perkins County. It was nice to run into the Grant Tribune-Sentinel staff at the annual Nebraska Press Association convention over the weekend. I was appreciative and honored to have been included in the awards won by the GTS.
Again, the Tribune-Sentinel showed that it is truly the best paper in the state and having lived in the community and now back east, Perkins County has a true gem of a newspaper. It really is what a small town paper needs to be: informative, entertaining, laid out with precision and engaging with the readers.
Please support the paper in all of their endeavors as I can tell you that the motivation behind the drive to be the best is not for awards, but to give the community what it deserves.
Perkins County deserves the very best newspaper in the state and for the second year in a row has been given that through the hard work and determination of the GTS staff.
My family and I read the Tribune-Sentinel each week and it is a phenomenal publication and I feel blessed to have been a part of the Johnson Publications family.
On a personal note, to update everyone, we are living in Fairbury, just bought a home and the kids are doing great. My wife works just a few blocks from our home, I am doing the publishing duties for the Fairbury Journal-News. Our kids have become very active in sports and other activities and we are looking forward to getting back to Grant this summer to visit.
God Bless,
Timothy Linscott

Cemetery board says vote yes PDF Print E-mail

On the May primary election you will be asked to allow the Madrid Cemetery District to levy a property tax not to exceed 2 cent per hundred dollar valuation. We as a board try very hard to run a nice cemetery on a small budget. Please get out and vote yes on this matter.
