  • Hair today, gone tomorrow

    I was contemplating what my personal involvement would be for this year’s Relay for Life event. As I drove on U.S. 25 heading for the Hogan House, I remembered the joyful faces of a couple children who had been going through cancer treatments and who had lost all their hair. They were making the best of a terrible situation. The hair loss is a well known part of cancer treatment and people handle it in different ways.

  • Meth series an eye-opening experience

    I’m fortunate enough to not have any friends or family members whose lives have  been wrecked by meth.
    Like most, I only knew about the drug from reading story after story about statistics of how big a problem it is in Kentucky.
    My only first-hand experience was going to take photos of a couple meth lab cleanups, as men in Haz-Mat suits collected the remnants of what was a working lab right in the middle of an apartment complex.

  • Is this really starting over?

  • Going on a treasure hunt

    I may have the best job in the world, because I get to go on a treasure hunt, and I’ve already started. What I’ve found so far has been priceless.
    As part of an ongoing series, we will be presenting Grant County’s Living Treasures.
    Recently, I sat down with Anna Mary Gordon who turned 100 on March 19. I was humbled to be entrusted with her story.
    She prospered by hard work, creativity and an entrepreneurial spirit in a time when it was difficult just to do the daily chores required to function and to get from one place to another.

  • Parents need to let their children play

    I never realized how intense parents of student athletes are not only here, but in all of Northern Kentucky.
    I have noticed some behavior that is unacceptable.
    I didn’t really realize the negativity coming from the stands until near the end of the soccer and football seasons. It also carried over into basketball season.

  • Times gone by, those were the days

    I remember a character in a book I must have read years ago who always read the obituaries to see if he was still alive.

  • WORTH REPEATING:

    “Courage doesn’t always roar.  Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I’ll try again tomorrow.”

  • I don’t think we’d go that far

    Often we’re challenged with a rhetorical question: “Would you give up your life for someone you love?”  
    I think most of us would answer, yes, of course I would. No question.

  • Online content moves to subscription based Feb. 24

    You may have seen the story on the front of last week’s Grant County News concerning our website moving to a paid model.
    On Thursday next week, the Grant County News website www.grantky.com will become a subscription-based news and information source.
    This does NOT mean there will no longer be a printed version of the Grant County News. We received a phone call after the story appeared, asking if the rumor was true that the Grant County News would only be on the web.
