  • Readers want answers from football boosters

    The Grant County Football Boosters weekly bingo at the Dry Ridge Outlet Center is supposed to support all the football programs in Grant County.
    This year, the officers apparently decided not to give any funding to the Grant County High School Football program.
    Now to make this clear, I have never had trouble with the officers running the bingo/hall but here lately it is a mess.

  • Gordon family thanks Grant County for its patriotism

    The family of Sgt. Paul M. Gordon thank the community of Sherman in particular and Grant Countians in general for your support during the internment of the remains of our Uncle Paul. We appreciate the coverage of his identification and return home by the Grant County News staff.  The display of patriotism and respect that we observed during the trip from Sherman Baptist Church and the National Veteran’s Cemetery was most touching.

  • A WORD FROM OUR READERS...

    The Grant County School system has lost one of its beloved retired staff members on June 15, 2014. Loretta Kelly taught at Dry Ridge Elementary for many years. She had a gift of compassion, which she shared with each child in her care. She treated her fellow faculty and staff members with respect and love. Many people throughout Grant County and beyond were blessed to have had Loretta Kelly not only as a teacher, but also as a friend. She will be truly missed.

  • Letters to the editor- 5-1-14

    Reader takes offense
    to letter to editor

    I know I am only one person, but I took grave offense with the published letter to the editor written by Chuck Estridge; America’s Government is broken, needs repairs.
    You state in your Public Endorsement Policy you will not print libelous letters. Yet Chuck calls “our president and attorney general lawless racists who denounce the Constitution and the rule of law.”

  • Letters to the editor- 4-24-14

    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

     

     On Jan. 1, 2014, the city of Dry Ridge, not only lost a owner/establisher of Dry Ridge Auto Parts but a true friend as well. This person was Dave 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.
