  • Community makes events happen, fun

    On May 5, I was proud of my community and extremely proud of this year’s Derby Day festivities.

    The morning of May 5 started with the 8th Annual Fitness for Life Around Grant County (FLAGG) 5K Derby Dash- Walk/Run. For some participants this race was their first ever 5K and for many that morning they set an all time high personal race time. As a Certified Group Fitness Instructor, I love nothing more than seeing groups of people engage in physical activity. See runningtime.net for full race day results.

  • A WORD FROM OUR READERS . . .

    After enacting a virtual amnesty by decree for 300,000 illegals last August, President Obama is once again showing his total contempt for the rule of law by announcing a new amnesty and work permits for up to one million illegal aliens effective immediately.

  • Child abuse victims should never have to suffer in silence

    The Jerry Sandusky case is a tragic reminder of what occurs daily in communities across this nation and in Northern Kentucky. Children are being sexually abused, exploited, physically abused and neglected, and they are waiting for adults (any adult) to stand up and protect them.

    We, the Sherman Church of Christ Mission team, would like to thank the Grant County Solid Waste for the opportunity to be involved in the community by picking up trash. The funds raised are going to our mission trip to Alabama. This will help us meet our goals of fundraising. It also benefited us by having the opportunity to see how litter affects the environment. Thank You.

    Low turnout disappoints poll worker
    I worked one of the voting booths in the recently held primary elections. I was disappointed in the low turn out. I do understand some of the reasons why the people in Grant County do not vote. These reasons are all true.

    I am the Disaster Action Team Leader for the American Red Cross here in Grant County. During my tenure with the Red Cross, I had my first experience at opening a shelter in Grant County for the clients who were affected by the tornado that struck Northern Grant County on March 2, 2012. I want to commend the volunteers and businesses that responded so quickly to the needs of the people of Grant County.

    On April 5, the Dry Ridge Fire Fighters and Dry Ridge Elementary Reading program held the 2nd Annual Build A Bear drive for Shriners Hospital in Lexington and Cincinnati, Ohio. Over 70 elementary students and parents enjoyed hot dogs and ice cream while building 100 bears to be distributed to the hospitals.

  • Do Democrats Have A Conscience?

    Ninety percent of Down’s Syndrome babies are killed. Whoops, pregnancies terminated. Chalk up a victory for the Democratic Party. Democrats-have you no conscience?
