    Interesting history of a family newspaper

    I remember reading Grit as a teen girl. A boy down the street came and sold it to us. My mother, sisters and I would pass it around, especially as it printed stories in serial form; we always were eager to see what came next! Eventually, technology became faster and the 'news' in Grit wasn't new anymore. We almost always had heard it already, but there were other things in it that made up for it. Grit was a paper that carried good news and things that made you feel happy, not just the woes of the day. If you remember this paper, you will be interested in reading the history of it.
