  • A WORD FROM OUR READERS . . .

    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?

  • Basketball players, play too hard?

    I would like to know if there are other people who wish for the days again when basketball was a non-contact sport? I played grade school and then weekend pickup games when I lived in Harrison County in the late 50’s and early 60’s. We all knew what a foulwas...even the referees.
    The way college and NBA players are allowed to push, hit, hold, trip and further abuse each other is detrimental to the game in my opinion.

    Many people know of foster care, but few really understand how the system works, the role of the foster parents and most importantly, the experience of the children and youth in care.

    More than 6,800 Kentucky children and youth are in out-of-home care. Most are  placed in temporary foster care due to parental neglect or abuse. The average age of a child in care is 10.7 years.

    This is a gripe letter. To all of us who look at someone without teeth and judge them for not getting them, shame on you and me.
    I’m guilty too. Just go to your phone and call every dentist in there and you will soon know why.

  • A WORD FROM OUR READERS...

    I was involved in a serious motor vehicle accident in September 2011. I hydroplaned, hit a guardrail and flipped my truck. I had serious injuries, multiple fractures and both of my legs were mangled. Doctors told me I was millimeters from death.

    The entire first week after the accident, the doctors contemplated amputating my right leg. That morning my EMT was Wanda Hammons. Not only did she save my life, but she figured out my right leg was actually rotated 180 degrees and bent back under me depriving it of blood.
