  • Clerk appreciates support for smooth election

    As your county clerk, I completed the final task of the election process for the 2015 Primary Election by presenting reports and election results to the grand jury on June 3, 2015. The election held on May 19 went smoothly and the recanvass on May 28 went well.

  • Yard sale signs anger Dry Ridge resident

    I am writing this letter in reference to yard sale signs. For the past six weeks, I have picked up the residue from yard sale signs on Monday mornings either in my yard or across the street.
    People are coming into the City of Dry Ridge, no due respect for the home or property owner, placing yard sale signs without permission.
    These people are non-tax paying people to the City of Dry Ridge. Sometimes they hang their signs on stop signs. These signs are distracters for motorists. This leads to a safety factor.

  • 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.

    Kentucky is facing a diabetes epidemic. It is estimated that over 600,000 Kentuckians have diabetes and 1.1 million people have pre-diabetes.
    One of the best ways to attack the diabetes epidemic is prevent it .
    Type 2 diabetes can be delayed or prevented and we know how to do it.

  • Holding Williamstown, GC in The Light

    The Quaker meeting is “Holding Williamstown and Grant County In The Light” (a traditional way of saying we are praying for you) because many of the city and county residents are beginning to realize you got scammed by a religious con artist with the bond issues passed and other public money you gave him, as evidenced by the chaos at the Grant County Fiscal Court budget meeting.

  • READER’S WRITE

    It was indeed a Happy New Year when Craig Houchens, on behalf of Forcht Bank, presented Grant County Helping Hands with a generous check to purchase food for the residents of Grant County.
