  • We were made to be ‘Courageous’

    I have allowed God back into my life and I couldn’t be any happier.
    With giving my life to God, I have developed a closer relationship to my fiancé, Jessica Purnell and Jesus Christ.
     

    Jessica and I went to Williamstown Christian Church, March 16, for the movie, “Courageous”, a film about five men making a resolution to be better fathers in their home, teaching the Word of God to their families.

    It is an inspirational film that tests you even if you are not a father, if you are living what God has planned for you.

  • PERSONALLY SPEAKING

    This is more like it.

    After spending two years on death row with Billy Clyde at the helms of my beloved Wildcats, Coach Cal in his first three years has UK where I want, scratch that, need them to be every year... competing for a national championship.

    My heart breaks and a little piece of me dies every time UK loses.
    Luckily, I have only came near death twice this season when we fell to the hated Hoosiers and the usually overmatched Vandy Commodores.

  • With regrets, you can rot in Denmark

    "With regrets, you can rot in Denmark. That’s what she gets for breaking my heart." Those are my only two replies to the numerous emails I have received about the desperate situations some of you have found yourself in over the past few months.

    It seems while traveling some of our citizens lost their money and emailed me from their intelligent phones asking for assistance. I’ll change the names to protect the proposed guilty.

  • What can you learn from your toothbrush?

    I never gave much thought to my toothbrush before.
    Every morning and night when I go to brush my teeth, it’s always sitting in the ceramic floral cup on the left hand side of my vanity next to the hand soap.
    Others may keep items like this on the right side of the vanity but since my husband and I are both lefties, we probably do things backwards.
    My dentist always gives me a new toothbrush when I go in for my six-month checkup.

  • Time to plan is before siren sounds

    The tornado that swept through Crittenden on March 2 should teach us all that an emergency plan is a must-have for every family.
    Grant County Emergency Management Director Rick Willoby made an excellent point in his observations on storm preparedness.
    “You can’t wait until a siren blows to get a plan,” Willoby said. See related story in this issue.
    He urged residents to prepare a “go-bag,” meaning one that you can grab and go in a moment’s notice.

  • People should get a say

    Epic fail.A swing and a miss.

    However, you want to label it, there is no doubt that the Senate Bill 151 was a misfire for Gov. Steve Beshear, Sen. Damon Thayer and expanded gaming supporters.

    Once again, voters will not get to decide whether they do or do not want casinos in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

    To me, it was a travesty, another idiotic display of how playing politics is more important than giving the people a say on important issues that impact our state.

    The issue is fairly simple in my mind.

  • City council had to make a tough call

    Did the Williamstown City Council make the right call in turning down a proposed truck stop on Barnes Road?

    That’s a question with an answer that only time will tell.

    There have not been many developers come to Williamstown or any of the other cities in Grant County in the last few years looking to bring a project with the promise of jobs, tax revenue and increased traffic, so when one does it would be easy to hop on the band wagon, especially when those are the things the public says they want.
