    America’s government is broken, needs repairs
    Our Constitutional Republic is in dire danger of being illegally replaced by a despotic ruling elite.
    Our president and attorney general are lawless racists who denounce the Constitution and the rule of law.
    They are aided by both parties but the Democrats in particular; as well as the national media. Among a long list of atrocities, Eric Holder says that if a state attorney general doesn’t like a law, they don’t have to enforce it.

  • The blizzard of March 4 that brought Joyce Ann Webster in the world

    It was March 4 and there was already a significant amount of snow on the ground and we were due for more snow. My husband, Harold Lee Webster, worked at the Old Mill Garage that was located on the Covington hill at the time. I had to come to Williamstown to stay with relatives so that I would be close our family doctor, Dr. Waldrop. Our sons, ages 4 to 8 years old were with me and had been delivered at home by Dr. Waldrop so I knew this delivery would be just fine.

  • Penick deserves thanks for years of great service

    If you have been a fan of local high school football or basketball then you should know Tony Penick.
    Although most of the time you just hear his voice during the Access Channel’s broadcasted games, his friendly demeanor and caring nature shines.

  • Dry Ridge lost a true friend in David Brockman

  • Support KET and feel proud about it

     

    I have been a volunteer at KET, Kentucky’s statewide public television system, since 2009. 

    I volunteer my time there because, for years, my family and I have enjoyed the diverse, wonderful programming and services through KET provides and I want to take part in passing those things on to others in my community. 

    KET produces programming that focuses on Kentucky and keeps us informed on public affairs, arts, health and education in the Commonwealth. 

  • Why do I feel like the victim in tax hikes?

     

    I’d like to remind our fellow Grantonians that two groups of our local elected officials, i.e. Grant Co. School Board and Dry City Council, have raised taxes this fall. 

    That is quite a jolt during these tight economic times. Both these groups say that they had no choice but to raise our taxes, as they are short on funds.  

    Let’s see...what do responsible citizens do when they are short on funds? We cut back on expenses, get a second job, work a little harder to make ends meet. 

  • 'Caring For Luke Landrum' team gives thanks to the community

     

    On behalf of the “Caring for Luke Landrum” Team we would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation to the many individuals that showed their support to the Landrum family on Sunday, Oct. 27, 2013 during the spaghetti benefit lunch. 

    The turnout far exceeded our expectations and was a testament to what a wonderful community we live in. We cannot thank everyone enough for their support!

    Voting to acquit Zimmerman

  • Zimmerman show trial

    In the old Soviet Union, they had show trials, backed up by the state controlled print media, Pravda. The show trials had nothing to do with true justice, but rather to further the states agenda and propaganda.

  • DAR celebrates Constitution Week

     Sept. 17, 2013 begins the national celebration of Constitution Week. The weeklong commemoration of America’s most important document is one of our country’s least known official observances. Our Constitution stands as a testament to the tenacity of Americans throughout history to maintain their liberties and freedom and to ensure those ensure those inalienable rights to every American.
