Q: I am a resident of Grant County. I drive to Dry Ridge on Monday and Wednesdays and for the past several weeks, I’ve noticed a young man sitting on the right side of the road, claiming to be homeless. I can’t help but wonder is this young man really in need of help?

A: According to Dry Ridge Police Chief Rick Kells, there are several people who sit at the Dry Ridge exit with signs claiming they are homeless when in reality they live in the city. Kells said that while some may have legitimate needs it is usually not the ones who are “regulars” at the intersections. He suggested that citizens wanting to assist others in the community donate money through a reputable charity.
