Today's Opinions

  • A WORD FROM OUR READERS . . .

    Crittenden Baptist Challengers did trash pick up on Oct. 23, on two roads. There was still a lot of trash along the road. It was cleaner than last year. I hope people are understanding not to litter on the sides of the roads. It was a great day to be outside in great weather.
    I want to thank Grant County to give me the chance to pick up trash and make our county cleaner. We also picked up four tires and a big wire cage.
    Maybe next year we won’t have to pick up as much trash as this year. It was exciting and fun and I can’t wait until next year.

  • These are a few of my favorite things

    Around October, I start mixing my recipe for the holidays.
    I begin with Christmas music, and if I don’t have a good portion of Bing Crosby, mixed with Rosemary Clooney and dashes of Frank Sinatra, Burl Ives and Johnny Mathis, I become Grinch-afied. A smidge of the Davis sisters, Skeeter and Betty Jack, singing “Christmas Boogie,” is just icing on the cake. Most of these artists were popular in the 40’s, before I was born, but I listened to Skeeter, as a love-sick teen in my West Virginia home, in the 60’s.

  • Collective voices needed to kill HR 2454

    Our president appeared on national TV in 1972 and told the nation that it was out of oil. There was much speculation that it was simply a lie by big oil to prepare the nation for the increased prices of foreign oil.

  • Save-A-Lot employees extend thank you

  • JROTC boosters appreciate support

    On Sept. 18, the Grant County JROTC cadets hosted their fourth Annual Raider/Drill meet at the Grant County High School campus. With 16 schools participating, our JROTC cadets did an outstanding job conducting the day’s events. In addition to the cadets running the nine different events for the day, this was also one of the biggest fundraisers for the JROTC Booster organization. We prepared and sold food for the 800 participants and spectators, instructors and parents that came. This was also a great success because of parental involvement and community support.

  • We are thankful. . .
  • Shop local - business matters

    It’s a shame but Grant County lost two locally-owned and operated businesses this week.
    Dairy Queen and Little Shrimp, both in Dry Ridge, have closed or will be closing by the end of the week. Dairy Queen closed on Monday and Shrimp will close on Saturday.
    Donna Cain, owner of Little Shrimp, hung a simple message on the door that said the Shrimp was being forced due to economy and lack of business.
    Her final plea in the note was that Grant County residents would shop locally. Amen!
