  • Forgiving the sinners

    Remember the phrase the Joker said repeatedly in the “Dark Knight”?  Why so serious?  As we head into Easter, many will begin to consider the cross of Jesus and how He died for our sins.  I once had a man ask me, “Why is God so serious about sin? Why not just forgive and get over it? I know He is holy, but can’t He just ignore it.  Why all this dying on the cross stuff?”  That is a good question.  Why doesn’t God simply just forget about sin, and overlook it.

    A group of Grant County High School students enjoy spending class time working on cars, but their goal isn’t just to have fun, because they’ve got their eye on a bigger prize.
    Students in Dave Shelton’s automotive technology class are honing their skills for two upcoming competitions including the Hot Rodders of Tomorrow and the Ford AAA Auto Skills contests.

  • Neighbors helping neighbors

    Josiah Goins was taking out the trash at his Crittenden home on Feb. 13 when he heard a feeble cry for help coming from across the street.
    Goins, a fourth grade student at Crittenden-Mt. Zion Elementary, rushed over and found his elderly neighbor lying between two parked cars in her driveway.
    Della McCoy, 82, had been lying outside in freezing temperatures after falling and breaking her hip. McCoy was unable to stand and her daughter, who lives in the bottom story on her two-story home, couldn’t hear her cries for help.

  • Mother advocates for Casey’s Law enacted to honor dead son

    Charlotte Wethington did not have any evidence that her son was addicted to drugs, but she had a gut feeling that something wasn’t quite right. Her instincts proved to be correct, as her son Casey would overdose three times and eventually die at age 23 after the third time.


    Northern Kentucky has been called the “heroin ground zero.”
    The deadly statistics validate that moniker.
    Four heroin overdose deaths have occurred in Grant County in less than three months this year.

    Last year, there was only one heroin death.
    “It should be alarming to everybody,” said Robert McDaniel, Grant County coroner. “It’s extremely problematic to everyone in the community.”
