  • WINTER WALLOP!

    The New Year came crashing into Grant County on Monday, Jan. 2 when Old Man Winter dumped snow and ice causing multiple accidents involving around 75 vehicles.

    Interstate-75 looked like a demolition derby as vehicles slammed and bumped into each other when blowing snow and icy roads took motorists by surprise and snarled traffic for hours.

    The first accident occurred around 11 a.m. just south of the 156-mile marker in Dry Ridge and involved eight vehicles. The second accident involved a camper and two tractor-trailer trucks.

  • Fire leaves Dry Ridge family homeless

    Kimberly Greene was cooking French fries on Dec. 9 and left the kitchen of her family’s Stewartsville Road home for just a second. When she returned, the hot grease had caught fire and spread quickly up the wall.

    “There was smoke and fire,” she said. “We tried to put it out but it just happened so damned quick.”

    She said she grabbed the pan of grease and tried to move it off the stove, but some of the grease splashed on the stove and the fire spread.

  • Deputies play St. Nick
