The Grit News
Home The Grit News Real Estate Arts and Crafts Communities

Our on-line newspaper was created in the spirit of The Grit Paper,  an old-time country newspaper named for the truth it told -- the real grit.  In Smuteye, it was delivered from horseback.  Major and his older brother dutifully delivered The Grit from the back of Old George, their trusty white horse. 

The original Grit is now available online at

Our on-line version does not report all the news, there are many excellent sources for daily news.  Rather, we strive to shed light on important issues that have not received adequate coverage.  Choose from the headlines below:
