The Tribune is in the process of modifying how small town news is presented to our readers, and we are seeking input from the community.
The current items appearing on the community page with headlines of certain rural neighborhoods will have a new format and be expanded to include anyone from around the county who has information they would like to share.
At one time there was lots of news generated by rural neighborhoods or clubs, however, some of the formal clubs no longer exist and many of the contributors of the neighborhood news have moved into town.
Thus, the Tribune now finds it necessary to combine the county’s news to not only include club news, but also birthdays, anniversaries, and other social happenings.
Everyone is invited to share their news items with the Tribune to be included in a new “Perkins County Pipeline” column each week.
We will welcome your compiled news in whatever way is easiest—mail it, fax it, email it, or drop it off and designate it as “Pipeline” news. Information can be sent to: Grant Tribune-Sentinel, P.O. Box 67, Grant NE 69140; fax 308-352-4101; email:
With the expanse of technology, often times it is assumed that everyone knows what’s going on. Not true. Many elderly do not have access to computers or cell phones where the cybertalk takes place. They learn about what has happened in the community via the weekly newspaper.
Please share your social life with us; brag on your children and grandchildren; pass along information on family gatherings and friendship get-togethers, church news, social happenings at the hospital, retirement communities, rest home, senior center, etc. The newspaper is here to share your stories as well as our own for everyone’s enjoyment of what happens in Perkins County, Nebraska!
