  • Tourism director’s position dissolved

    Judy Mullins is being let go 10 years to the day she became executive director of Grant County Tourism and Convention Commission.

    The commission voted during its Feb. 16 meeting to dissolve the position of executive director March 1 and contract administrative services with the Grant County Chamber of Commerce.

    The commission will pay the chamber of commerce $1,700 a month for a year.

    The move will save the tourism commission a little more than $10,000 per year, said commission member Randy Slayback, who made the motion to dissolve the position.

    Williamstown Mayor Rick Skinner doesn’t want the bridge at the south end of town to close.

    Kentucky Transportation Cabinet officials said the bridge would close on March 1 due to safety concerns.

    Skinner has asked the state to reconsider closing the bridge and keeping at least open to cars and trucks.

    “I know the state considered two options, either to close the bridge or to set a weight limit at 6,000 pounds, but chose to close it,” Skinner said.

    He contacted state road officials and asked them to change their minds.

  • Church removes Jerry Cannon

    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.”
