I loved the comment by the young lady in the CCHS Senior Spotlight last week: “Calhoun makes you feel like you’re free.”


This has been foremost in my mind all week. I was aware that interesting adventures can happen here that would not take place in a larger city.


I had Levi as my companion last Thursday afternoon. It was such a beautiful, balmy day, so the decision was made to spend time in Grantsville. Levi had a new laser sword, so we decided to go after any monsters in our fair village.


Our first stop was the Chronicle office, where he tackled the really scary monster in the window, then went back in the “cave” to make sure the building was clear. Next stop was Loren Howley’s office to visit friend, Kenny. Shelia became a treasured friend when she took the little hunter upstairs to clear her office of the undesirable creatures.


Next stop was Minnich Florist. Joe didn’t have any monsters, but they did have a big discussion about baseball. Joe said he hopes to still be umpiring the game when Levi is old enough to play. Joe gave him a baseball to keep him focused. Next was J&B Drug Store. The monster hunter enjoyed a cool drink at the counter where his dad, uncles and aunts spent time in the “dark ages.” Ron, the pharmacist, provided “Super Hero” band aids to be used after an unexpected battle.


Classic Creations Florist owner Charlie Whipkey told Levi of a monster under his table. He and Charlie were down on the floor trying to scare it out. Charlie’s cat stuck its head out, looked at the little hunter, and made an about turn back to its resting place.


We ended our hunt at Aging With Grace, where we visited Brook Rogers and Ruth Lancaster. The residents were interested in hearing of the brave adventures of the hero who was clearing the town of anything scary. We had other interesting places on our list, but it was time to meet sister Sally’s bus.


Thank you, Grantsville, for giving a small boy and his grandma the freedom of having fun adventures on a sunny afternoon!
