Goat Farm Expands Just Outside City Limits

The share of U.S. farms operated by women nearly tripled over the past three decades, according to a report by the United State Department of Agriculture (from 121,600 to 306,200) and so it is perhaps not that unusual for Colleen Grawe to single-handedly be raising 100 goats on her 20 acre Goat Hill Ranch located off of Prairie Avenue just east of Gallatin.

his history, his future

If you were to stroll through the Noyon New British Cemetery and read the names on the rows and rows of white gravestones, you would find that most of the men buried there were from the United Kingdom.

Souvenirs from the Front Line of Korea

Sidney Franks said this pocket knife saved his life during the Korean War. Sidney was making his way to the front lines when his fatigues got hung up in some brush and he had to cut himself out.

McBrooms’ ‘Hodgepodge’ … Their Oasis

Shannon and Kyle McBroom call their back yard a hodgepodge, but really it is a very ordered oasis which has been named Yard of the Month for July by the Gallatin Garden Club.

The McBroom’s back lawn at 812 S. Prospect is surrounded by 50 lilac bushes which makes a natural privacy fence with enough space between a couple of the bushes to allow entrance for yard work.

A Strange, Weird, Really Cool… Er, Thing!

Michael Long, 62, Gallatin, found this strange fossil that looks like a snail while walking his dog along the old Grand Highway in the north part of Gallatin. Mr. Long said he walks for miles all over town looking for fossils.

“I flip over a rock and find one and then I find another — it’s like finding gold,” he said.

Mr. Long has only lived in Gallatin for about

One of a Kind — Man and Product

Ellis sits with a few furry friends—and an Indian he carved himself.

“I’ve always been a collector,” said Gary Ellis of Jamesport. “Old folks in the neighborhood would give me little trinkets when I was a kid. I had so many marbles and keys in my pockets, I couldn’t keep my pants up.”
