Today's Opinions

  • Looking to the future, reflecting on the past

    When the magistrates and I took office nearly two years ago, none among us could have predicted or planned for some of the issues we would confront. Now, to be perfectly honest, we all know that taking office as an all new court would bring some degree to strain as each of us would bring to the jobs new ideas and fresh approaches to addressing lingering issues.
    Little did we know what was on the horizon.

  • We want you to be a loyal GC News reader

    Some of you may be wondering why you received a Grant County News in the mail this week.
    Well, this week is our annual sample copy of the newspaper that is delivered to all Grant County residents for free. Why do we do this?
    Simply put, we want to show those who are not current subscribers or who do not regularly pick up the paper on the newsstands each week what we have to offer.

  • The Ark through the eyes of a visitor

     

    Recently, I spent an entire day at the Ark Encounter interviewing visitors.  It was a day coordinated with a representative of Answers in Genesis, the Ark’s owner.  As people exited the Ark, I was encouraged by their responses to what they had just experienced.  So many of them were curious about the people in Williamstown and how the Ark is changing our world, so they made it easy for us to talk.

  • A time to be thankful

    November is the month synonymous with the time to be thankful.  Although we should be thankful all year long we are reminded to pause and count our blessing when the calendar changes to November.

  • A Country Christmas coming to downtown Williamstown Dec. 3

    Christmas is just around the corner and Grant County is gearing up for its annual Christmas festival – A Country Christmas, formerly known as Santa’s Wonderland.
    This event is sponsored by the Grant County Chamber and Grant County Tourist and Convention Commission.
    This year’s festival is planned for Saturday, Dec. 3 in downtown Williamstown. Activities will get started at 4:30 p.m. with a free pancake supper with Santa courtesy of the Williamstown Kiwanis and will end with a tree lighting ceremony at the Grant County Courthouse.

  • A WORD FROM OUR READERS...

    I’d like to say first this is the most important election in recent times. 
    It is disgusting when only 30 percent voted last year and look who we ended up with as governor.  There is going to be a lot of out-of-state money coming in to influence the outcome of this election.  The working and middle class are going to be most affected by this election so get out and vote.
    I’m supporting Mayor Jim Gray for U.S. Senate because he is a proven leader. 

  • My old Kentucky home

    By Rachel Dawn
    Sherman Mt Zion Road. That’s where the Penningtons live. All of them. Well, we used to.
    My father, Donald Pennington, has six brothers and sisters, and I remember a time in my life when every single one of them and their families lived on our road.
    We lived in the white brick house on the curve from the time I was born till the time I graduated high school and moved to Cincinnati. My parents sold the white brick house that Fall of 2003. They moved exactly one quarter mile down the road to the old red brick farmhouse that was my father’s childhood home.
