  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.

  • 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.

    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.

  • As the duly elected Grant County Jailer, I am charged by law with staffing the jail and organizing a command staff for efficient operations of the facility.
    I proposed an organizational chart on Oct. 12, 2015 that would have cut $25,000 from the current payroll budget. 
    This would have allowed me to possibly hire an additional deputy and reorganize the command structure underneath my supervision.
     I am a retired law enforcement officer and my organizational structure was modeled on the standard law enforcement command chart.

    Five years ago, I met a man who I knew then would forever hold a place in my heart. I knew then that this man was crazy and wild but kind and caring as well. As time went by, this man became my father in so many ways.

  • You are invited (and your help is really needed) on July 7 when the Grant County Little League is holding a benefit at Grant County Park in Crittenden to raise money to rebuild its field house/concession stand.
    The structure at Bobby Gibson Memorial Field at Grant County Park in Crittenden was destroyed May 21 due to suspected arson.
    Kentucky State Police are still handling the investigation and a $1,000 reward is available for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the suspect(s).
