  • Where’s the beef? At Michael’s Steakhouse

    Michael Scroggins worked for Wal-Mart for 20 years, but he really wanted to own his own restaurant.

    On April 6, his dream became reality when he opened Michael’s Steakhouse in Williamstown.

    The county’s newest restaurant features hand-cut fresh steaks cooked to order.

    “We wanted to open a restaurant in Williamstown and keep the prices reasonable,” said Scroggins.

    Neither Michael nor his wife, Becky, had owned a restaurant before.

    Michael said the first couple of days were a “learning curve for all of them.”

  • SKIN DEEP

    In the 1960s, tattooing was considered anti-social, but by the 1990s it was a trendy fashion statement. Today tattoos on rock stars, professional sports figures and even Christian rock musicians are commonplace.

    Daryl Anness has had a broad spectrum of careers, from welder to certified nurse’s assistant, but none more colorful than his current one as proprietor of Jadloc Tattooing.

    “It’s a passion,” Anness says. “ I love it.” I started out getting tattoos when I was 17.”

  • Sugar Daddy's doughnuts

    Greg Traylor doesn’t come close to resembling a little, old lady dressed in a white apron hand cranking out fresh donuts on a daily basis, but he does whoop out one tasty treat after another.
    Traylor has worked in construction. He’s worked as a bull dozer operator. He’s operated a backhoe and done septic work and excavating, but cakes, pies and doughnuts?
    Greg isn’t afraid of hard work, just ask anyone who knows him, but he never dreamed that upon opening a donut shop in Dry Ridge he’d be the busiest he’s ever been.

  • Grant Red Cross finally finds a home

    The Grant County Unit of the Red Cross has finally found a home.

    The organization had bounced around for several years.

    In tough times they met in a donated space that contained mold, mildew, mice and rats.

    “It was simply unacceptable to bring clients in there or hold meetings, especially area meetings with volunteers from other counties in that space,” said Diana Morgan, the unit’s team leader.

    When the Grant County Judicial Center was completed and all court functions moved from the courthouse, space became available.
