Civitas Media, The Grayson County News-Gazette’s parent company, is committed to serving its communities and providing relevant news and information through multiple channels. With this in mind, Civitas Media is launching myownleitchfield.com, an interactive community website, in Grayson County, KY

The site features hyper-local news and information generated by community residents about area happenings and events.

“The MyOwn Community website is based on the town square, or public square, concept,” said Michael Bush, Civitas Media’s president and CEO. “As an amateur historian, I am intrigued by how communities were influenced by the interaction that took place in the town square, or community center, and how important that type of interaction still is today.”

The MyOwn website is a community-specific news, information and engagement platform driven by the most important individuals in Grayson County, its citizens.

“The MyOwn sites can revolutionize the way neighbors connect with each other and their communities,” Bush said.

“With today’s busy lifestyles, it has become more and more difficult for individuals and families to easily maintain the level of daily interaction that keeps a community vibrant and as the leading source of news and information in Grayson County, we felt we should find a solution to keep community members involved and active,” said Grayson County News-Gazette General Manager Theresa Armstrong. 

The MyOwn website is an innovative way to find out about, and participate in, what’s going on near you. The site has been built so that you have plenty of opportunities to share photos, videos and stories, as well play online games, post upcoming events, or just see what your neighbors are doing.

“The MyOwn website is the solution the community has been looking for,” Armstrong said. “The MyOwn site will strengthen our community and improve the lives of its residents, but we can’t do it without everyone’s support.”

Grayson County’s MyOwn website is now available at myownleitchfield.com. Log in today and see where community comes together.
