  • I have two provocative statements I want to make, which will probably raise your eyebrows. Statement No. 1: I’m wild about three women I know, but not in the way you might think.
    Statement No. 2: The kingdom of God is like the commercial for Viagra.
    First, the women. They’re friends of mine, although we hardly ever go out together.

  • The congregation of God’s House Church in Dry Ridge is in shock after their pastor was arrested last week on charges of child pornography.

    Todd Cummins, a deacon at the church on Broadway in Dry Ridge, was out of town on a college visit with his son when he got a call.

    “Shock is the best way to put it. It was disbelief and also a feeling I’d been betrayed,” Cummins said. “You don’t think your pastor is into child pornography.”

  • Nurse - Rebecca Ailstock

    If you are 24 years old, your life should be carefree and fun. But Rebecca Ailstock faces challenges that the majority of people her age would never think of. Rebecca faces the specter of cancer each day and is reminded of it each day when she looks in the mirror and sees her fluff of hair that is trying to grow back in after surgery to remove a brain tumor and a series of chemo treatments.

  • Fiance - Chester Alsip
    by – Carol Gadd, Verona

    The someone special in my life is my fiancé Chester Alsip. I’ve known him and his family of eight brothers and sisters, etc. for 60 years. He is the sweetest, most understanding, patient, friendly man I’ve ever known.

    He always has a kind word for everyone and a sweet smile on his face. He is 80-years-old and we fell in love with each other. I’m 74-years-old.

  • Daughters - Victoria, Katherine, Charlotte
    by – Chris Nicholson, Corinth

    My special valentines are my three daughters. The youngest, 27-month-old Charlotte has had a rough start to life.

    At only 5-weeks-old, she started having seizures. We took her to Cincinnati Childrens Hospital and after several days of testing they sent us home with no diagnosis.

  • Pastors - Tony and Kim McKinnon
    by – Sandi Neace, Williamstown

    What other way to appreciate two wonderful people, who came into our family life than Pastor Tony and Kim McKinnon for Valentine’s Day.

    What an awesome couple, pastors at the Family Worship Center in Grant County, have done so much for our community in so many ways.

    Their ministry doesn’t stop when the church doors close, it only just began, from volunteering in the community to getting our youth in the right places with the right people.

  • Aunt - Hazel Barnett Cammack
    by – Jenna Pelfrey, Dry Ridge

    I would like to nominate my aunt, Hazel Barnett Cammack, for your special valentine issue.

    She has always been the one in the family that all her brother, sisters, nieces and nephews depend on when anything is needed. She has helped me on numerous times, but never more than in the last several weeks.

    You see, I fell on Jan. 3 and broke both elbows. Needless to say, the first couple of weeks, I was pretty helpless. She was at my house every day the first two weeks.

  • Mother - Kendra Wheelington
    by – Jessica Atha, Jonesville

    My mother, Kendra Wheelington, is my special Valentine. She is my best friend in the whole world and never fails to be there for me, no matter the circumstances.

    My mom has overcome a lot of obstacles in her life and faced a lot of hardship, but she never let that get her down.

    Her mother (my grandmother) passed away in her forties after she lost the fight with brain cancer.

    (written by grandmother Darlene Breeden)

    My Mommy and Daddy loves me so much. They snuggle me up and tickle me so good that I don’t have to laugh.

    They play board games with me. They play Wii with me. They pay attention to me even when my little baby brother is crying for his bottle.

    They take me to Chuck E. Cheeses and the mall.

    When I go to Granny’s to stay all night and I miss them and want to go home, they come and get me.
