  • Veterans are heart, soul of country

     

    Veterans are the heart and soul of our country. Whether it’s the Marines, Air Force, Army, Navy or Coast Guard, they’re all veterans. They’re what make our country free, and freedom is not free. As a patriot, Thomas Paine said, “Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must undergo the fatigue of supporting it.” We live in the land of the free and the home of the brave, and that my friend is the great U.S.A.


  • Grab your kayak or canoe and find out what it would be like to take a leisurely Saturday morning ride around Northern Kentucky’s largest lake as Paddle Williamstown Lake returns on Saturday, Aug. 25.
    Williamstown Lake will host the second Paddle Williamstown from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m.  

    All power boat/jet ski traffic will be restricted during this time.
    Williamstown Mayor Rick Skinner was pleased with the first event and hopes to show off the lake to even more participants this year.

  • Crittenden Fire Chief Lee Burton hopes caution is the rule when local families celebrate this year’s Fourth of July, especially since a small spark from a sparkler could touch off a large grass or brush fire in these dry conditions.

  • When Kim Haubner of Dry Ridge was sitting by her father’s bedside as he spent his last days battling cancer, she thought about people needing a little hope, especially when they were facing life’s trials.

    “It just kept gnawing at me and I knew I had to do something,” said the woman, known for helping out family and friends.

    For the last eight years, she’s organized an annual event known as the County Christmas Party that  helped families with Christmas trees and gifts.

  • I have a handful of phalaenopsis about the house, and three of them have just begun to shoot up a bloom spike that, once in bloom (probably still about a month away), will bloom for months, if I keep them out of direct sunlight. One plant is like 10 fresh cut bouquets, and they are so delicately lovely you just can’t beat them as a nice Valentine gesture.

  • Have you noticed a sticky substance on the floor beneath your ficus or philodendron? Are there little scabs on the under side of the leaves of your orchid?  Maybe you have noticed that your plants just look a little lack luster. Well, we can blame some plant puniness on being a tropical houseplant indoors in Kentuckiana during the winter.

    This Another Place In Time photo features Ruth Whaley Simpson at home on Falmouth-Williamstown Road on an unknown date. Simpson was a cafeteria worker at Grant County High School during the late 1980s and early 90s.
    Thanks to her daughter, Rekenna Simpson Rogers, for submitting the photo and Steve Jenkins of Williamstown for calling in a correct guess.
