    My middle school cheerleading squad cleaned up several roadways in Grant County. My group went on a road in Dry Ridge and on a road by Lloyd’s Wildlife. We found a large amount of trash scattered on the roadsides. It was very sad to see and I don’t understand why people cannot use trash cans or the local landfill to get rid of their waste.

    In the city of Dry Ridge, criminals are having a field day. I am co-owner of a recycling center in Dry Ridge. Last month, thieves stole copper wire from our business. On the night they began their escapades, they were stopped by a Williamstown policeman, who discovered the wire in the back of their vehicle. For reasons that have still not been explained to me, the thieves were allowed to return the stolen material and leave without even a citation. In our security camera video, we see the policeman actually showing one of the thieves exactly where our camera is positioned.

    In the “Personally Speaking” section of the Grant County News on Oct. 12, 2010, Linda Lawrence’s column “Hope to see you at the polls” pointed out the obligation and privilege it is for each of us to vote—but we need to be informed. This column needs to be reprinted every election year.

    There is an oft repeated mantra by liberal progressives that the rich need to pay their “fair share.” I agree. A fair share suggests equal portions to all, regardless of circumstance. Our current tax code is progressive. The more you make, you are progressively taxed at a higher rate. There is nothing fair about that.

    Regarding James Zadroga’s 9/11 Health and Compensation Act and the lack of cancer coverage, the lack of providing cancer coverage to the first responders seems a glaring oversight to the intent of the bill.
    “To date, 75 recovery workers at ground zero have been diagnosed with blood cell cancers that a half-dozen top doctors and epidemiologists have confirmed as having been likely caused by that exposure.” This is a quote from the Village Voice from 2006.

    The Grant County Home Educators would like to thank the county for the opportunity to earn money by picking up trash.

    We don’t like it when people throw their trash out on the roads. They need to think about all the animals that are eating the plastic and other debris. This hurts them and when you litter, it makes our roads look nasty.

    We ask that you please wait until you get home and throw your trash in a garbage can.

    The majority opted for a congressional change in the past mid-term election, and how is that working for you, especially if you’re not working? Reading the recent comments of the Corinth writer, I recall those oft spoken words by John Kasich, the governor of Ohio, who was mentioned in their letter. “If we can,” seemed to be the extent of his vocabulary, but it was enough to shift the political leadership in Ohio.

    Spears Foundation appreciates support

  • Republicans should axe tax loopholes

    I would like to address the budget and the lack of movement on the Republicans part on taking some of the loopholes away from the wealthy.

    During last year’s campaign for Ohio’s Governor’s seat, there was a TV commercial from his opponent that used a sound bite showing Kasich saying that bonuses, that no one needed to know about, could be used for his staff.

    Grant County News gets ‘2 thumbs up’
    I believe your paper has become better in the last few months. The last two, I have really enjoyed.
    You are keeping up with the local government issues—the fair and all the pictures.
    But the community, the people stories are a real blessing. Robin Doyle, Rebecca Ailstock and this week, Hubert Lusby’s story. Dildine says “Sew” long to Quilt Box (I don’t know any of these, but enjoyed the articles).
