    Hello, Shirley and I attended our oldest granddaughter’s high school graduation this past weekend. I don’t feel old enough to have a granddaughter that will be going off to college next fall. I’m sure many of you have had, or will have, that same feeling. Harding County is always about the kids. I’ve told you that before. From the local newspaper to the county fair. The kids come first.
