Crittenden Baptist Church is buzzing with activity.
Since the March 2 tornado, it has become one busy place as the central drop off point for donations, volunteers, victims to connect with emergency service providers and its kitchen has been serving three meals a day to victims and volunteers.
It got started when Kim Haubner, the founder of HOPE (Helping People Out Everywhere) posted on Facebook that her newly founded organization would be distributing clothes and food to tornado victims on March 4.
Allison Spiess has been appointed as an agent in the Grant County Farm Bureau Insurance Agency. She is a graduate of Wauseon High School and holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Morehead State University. In her new position, she will be calling on the residents of Grant County to offer a wide variety of insurance coverage through the Farm Bureau Insurance Companies.
Absolutely nothing says spring more than the distant chorus of spring peepers. There is a wooded stream just off Conner Station that is home to a cacophonous band of peepers all competing for as many females as they can. On a warm March evening, especially after a shower, spring peepers remind me of how glorious rural life can be.
Just by listening a whole other world can be imagined.
As quickly as the tornado devastated Crittenden, the Grant County chapter of the American Red Cross mobilized to help those in need.
Once Diana Morgan, local coordinator of the American Red Cross, received a call from the Kentucky State Police and Grant County Emergency Management that assistance was needed, she immediately contacted the Cincinnati office and began setting up a shelter at Grant County High School.
