Milestones

  • Irene Prather retires from tourism office

    Irene Link Prather began her career in public service 39 years ago when she worked as a nutrition assistant for the Grant County Cooperative Extension Service for the University of Kentucky. She worked in that position for 23 years and retired in 1970.

    But that wasn’t her last contact with the public. In 1993, she was asked by the Grant County Tourism Board to become an employee.

    She told them she would think about it. It didn’t take long for her to make a decision to accept their offer.

  • Poet’s Corner

    Dear Mom,

    When I remember childhood

    You were always there

    Teaching me and guiding me

    With tender love and care.

    How special you did treat me

    With values good and true.

    I’m so thankful Mom

    That God gave me to You!

    In loving memory of

    Edna Marie Breeden

  • Local band needs public’s help to earn spot on festival’s main stage

    If it was not for Jesus, Dusty Murphy said he would not be alive today.

    The 28-year-old Crittenden man was one of four teens arrested in late 1998 for arson at several Grant County churches.

    A five-year prison term and a newfound commitment to God has led to a transformation in Murphy’s life.

    “Life as a drug-addicted, alcoholic Satanist was one that was devoid of all hope,” he said. “Every dream was shattered at some point, and I had no reason to exist. Now, I have a family, hopes, dreams and in short, a life.”
