Today's Opinions

  • A year of tremendous blessings

    Grant County, thank you!
    The Grant County News has allowed me the opportunity to write about the tremendous success of the Ark Encounter now that it’s been open one year.
    Media from all over the world have toured this massive ship, and we have appreciated all the extensive global coverage—including the fair and accurate reporting of this newspaper.

  • Celebrating Independence Day

    Over 200 years ago, our founding fathers put their lives on the line to create a new country in which freedom reigned. These men had a vision of a nation unafraid to face its enemies and win. We, the people of the United States, have faced insurmountable odds since our young country’s conception but continue to fight for our God-given rights unique to the United States of America.

  • Williamstown Family Fun Park thanks chamber members

    The Williamstown Family Fun Park would like to extend our thanks to the Grant County Chamber businesses who attended our “Business After Hours” event on Tuesday, June 26.  
    It was a beautiful evening with temperatures in the 70s.  We were excited to be able to showcase our family friendly activities to chamber members and their families, including mini golf, zipline tours, chutes and ladders (kids’ adventures course) and our newest offering, archery tag.

  • New health department district office allows for future of efficiency, collaboration

    Recently, the Northern Kentucky Health Department joined with Board of Health members, elected officials and other partner organizations to celebrate the ground breaking for our new district office on the campus of the Florence Government Center.

    Obviously, those involved in the years of research and planning leading up to the May 19 event were excited for construction to get underway, as are the more than 90 health department employees who will work from the new facility when it’s completed next winter.

  • Pet Journal: Attention seeking behavior

    Attention seeking behavior is one of the most frustrating and confounding behaviors experienced by dog owners. It can take many forms. Most common are jumping and nipping. However, there are many other behaviors designed to seek attention, including vocalizing, destructive chewing, and stealing.
    Dogs are pack animals. As such, it is natural for them to seek both companionship and contact.

  • Fathers be good to your daughters

    My father, Donald Pennington, has exemplified what it means to be a Christian man, husband, brother, son, and father every day of my life. I have never seen him waver. The strength and conviction of his character inspires those around him to be better themselves.
    I have watched him lead our immediate (and extended family at times) spiritually. I have seen him confidently assume leadership roles in church my whole life. He is always smiling and laughing. His countenance creates joy in every person he encounters. You just feel better after being around my father.

  • A WORD FROM OUR READERS

    Epperson outraged at suicide
    I am so outraged about the little 8-year-old boy who attended Carson Elementary School in Ohio. He was attacked and left to die on the floor. What does it take today for our children to be safe?
    I am outraged for the mother who is suffering from the loss of her child.  She will feel the pain for a long time. What right did these animals have to take the life of her son?
    This incident is as bad as Sandy Hook was. I am ashamed to be an American today. These animals need to be severely punished. These animals are not children.

  • Father’s Day is more special this year

    The past few five months I have been terrified.
    Most nights would be filled with restless sleep and recurring nightmares.

    In February, my dad was diagnosed with follicular lymphoma.
    When my mom told my brother and I over the phone that he had cancer I could barely utter a word.
    Although in shock, I asked all the obvious questions.

    What happens next?
    How bad is it?
    Will they be able to get rid of it?
