  • Snow kidding- Is it spring yet?

    Even as a child I didn’t like to be teased, at least not much.
    Good-natured ribbing is OK, but I certainly don’t like to be teased like we were over the weekend.
    Bright sunshine and temperatures in the 50s and 60s – that was a cruel tease.
    I mean is anyone besides me ready for some warm spring weather?
    Typically, I don’t mind winter and I don’t mind snow. Ice is another story, but snow is pretty. I like the way it blankets everything in a coat of winter white, but this year it just goes on and on and on.

  • Recognizing history as session continues

    The Senate continued work and recognized an historic event. Many lawmakers joined thousands of Kentuckians gathered along Capitol Avenue to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March on Frankfort led by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  It was a cold and blustery March 5, 1964, when Dr. King, along with 10,000 others, marched up to the front door of our capital in support of the Kentucky Civil Rights Act.

  • Taking a walk down memory lane

    As you read this I have less than four weeks left of my newspaper career.  So read on as I take a walk down memory lane.
    I came to Grant County, from Harrison County, in August of 1988. But, I’m old now so if I didn’t it doesn’t really matter as all the dates are in the past and it isn’t going to stop or change anything.
    Here’s a brief look at my first six months in Grant County.

  • The blizzard of March 4 that brought Joyce Ann Webster in the world

    It was March 4 and there was already a significant amount of snow on the ground and we were due for more snow. My husband, Harold Lee Webster, worked at the Old Mill Garage that was located on the Covington hill at the time. I had to come to Williamstown to stay with relatives so that I would be close our family doctor, Dr. Waldrop. Our sons, ages 4 to 8 years old were with me and had been delivered at home by Dr. Waldrop so I knew this delivery would be just fine.

  • Make a difference for our county's youth

  • Historic legislation and protecting citizens

  • Penick deserves thanks for years of great service

    If you have been a fan of local high school football or basketball then you should know Tony Penick.
    Although most of the time you just hear his voice during the Access Channel’s broadcasted games, his friendly demeanor and caring nature shines.

  • Be true to your teeth or they'll be false to you

     

    I have has a long and detestable relationship with several dentists throughout the years.

    It all started when I was 9 or 10- years old and there were too many teeth in my mouth. Some had to go. 

    The dentist was rough and I wasn’t numb. I found out later in life that I have some sort of tolerance to Novocain. Weird. 

    Through tear-filled eyes I watched as he pulled three to four of my teeth to make room. Then came the braces.
