AS WE SEE IT: Heritage matters

One of the calls we frequently get here at the newspaper are related to archival copies of the previous papers to serve the communities we cover. While many of the bound volumes of the Grayson Journal, the Sandy Valley Enquirer, The Olive Hill Times, and other predecessor newspapers were salvaged and donated to the Highlands Museum in Ashland when CNHI closed the Journal-Times office in early 2020, a lot of those older volumes are simply lost to history.

Likewise, during the ice storms, members of the American Legion came together to support the community – digging folks out, helping with rescues, and doing many of the things volunteer firefighters do in surrounding communities.
