  • 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.

  • County attorney looks forward to continuing service

    In addition to working with law enforcement and citizens to prosecute thousands of traffic, criminal and juvenile cases every year, the Grant County Attorney’s Office provides a number of services for the citizens of Grant County.  

  • Ark employee addresses community

    I am an employee at the Ark. I have been telling Grant County businesses they need to step up and get motels, restaurants and a decent campground.  I also wrote to the governor.
    I also told the governor that is not just for the Ark, but the travelers, vacationers, and residents.
    I have worked there since we opened on July 7, 2016.  I have met people from all over the World. Australia, Africa, Japan, Korea, New Zealand and Poland, etc. A lot of our “guests” tell me we are the nicest people.

  • 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.
