  • Dry Ridge man does good deed

    A Dry Ridge man recently went to great lengths to make sure a Tennessee couple had memories that will last forever.

    When Scott Braunstein and a friend visited the Lost Sea Adventure in Sweetwater, Tenn., they noticed something laying in the grass — a photo memory card.

    “It was blue and was laying in green grass and mulch,” Scott said. “It just stood out like a sore thumb.”

    Unable to find anyone at Lost Sea who had lost the card, Scott left his phone number in case someone asked about it and said he would try to track down the owner himself.

    The event was not only for the survivors, but for the community that came together to arrange an incredible occasion.

  • Agnes Poor Beach: She's a living doll

    She is a small woman, with an appearance almost as fragile as one of her porcelain dolls. Her gray hair is neatly styled, her earrings always match her clothes and her fingers are adorned with rings. Since 1988, she has taken dolls that were tossed out by others and turned them back into objects of love for needy children. In fact, many Grant Countians know her simply as “The Doll Lady.”

  • Friend to community dies

    Bill Dills was a man of action.

    He didn’t seek fame or even want credit for pushing Grant County along. He preferred to stay behind the scenes.
    Grant County lost a firm believer in the community when Dills, 84, died on May 15 at his Dry Ridge home. His wife, Ruth, also 84, died the day before.

    When Dills was named Grant Countian of the Year in 2008, he was almost shy about being interviewed.

    He said his philosophy was simple,  that people were put on this Earth to try and make a difference and that’s the way he lived his life.
