    What is right Iraq policy?
    “Pull out of Iraq,” is one aspiring politician’s sentiment that is shared by many Americans who have begun to weigh success against the time and effort, the lives and hundreds of billions of dollars that we continue to invest in our “Humpty Dumpty.” Can we put it back together again, or should we cut our losses and move on?

    Grant County comes together for Relay For Life
    As I was sitting on the couch Saturday night, May 21, my mind went over all of the events that went on during the 2011 Grant County Relay For Life. It was such an overwhelming feeling to see our community come together the way it did.

    Stop ‘big oil’ tax give-aways

    Check the price at the pumps when you go through Dry Ridge; it should be heading down, said my husband on Friday, May 13. When I phoned home, the news was that the price had increased from $3.99 to $4.15—and it was all the local stations. Just stunning!

    Promotion of Christianity begins with Christians
    Contrary to the opinions of some respondents, who label me according to their political persuasion, I personally prefer “Under God,” in the Pledge of Allegiance, and “In God we trust,” on our money. I selected the “In God We Trust” license plate for my car.

    Kennedy, Crupper extend belated welcome
    It was Nov. 15, 1906, when Dry Ridge hosted the birth of the Grant County News. While yet in its infancy, “The News” merged with the Williamstown Courier. The Courier did not survive, but the News made the most of its new surroundings and continued to grow and flourish in Williamstown for 100 years.

    Work is less fun, fun is more work
    How many times have we exclaimed, “Had I know then, what I know now...”. If you, like me, are in that group of people who have been sufficiently blessed to have survived declining health and other time imposed limitations, if work is a lot less fun, and fun is a lot more work, we are known as senior citizens. We can dwell in regret for what might have been, or accept the fact that it is what it is and focus on the benefits of our longevity.
