By Kevin Wilson: QCS Interim Managing Editor In this Quay County Sun you’re holding, you see me, Kevin Wilson, as the Sun’s interim managing editor.

Logan native set to release album

Freedom Newspapers Kene Terry thinks performing on stage is great. Selling albums and getting on TV would be good too. But Terry’s not out for fame.

Every Mother’s Day gift is a good one

By Ryn Gargulinski: QCS Columnist It’s that time of year to thank one of the most important people in the world — mommy dearest. After all, if not for her, we wouldn’t be here in the first place. This fact, sadly, is frequently twisted and used against her by the angry teen who screams about [...]

May 10, 2006 Letters to the Editor

Mexico boycott may be necessary I read another’s comments that they canceled their vacation to Cancun, Mexico, so as not to give support to Mexico.
