    (Editor’s Note: Ron Kennedy of Mt. Zion was a frequent contributor to the editorial pages of the Grant County News. He dropped this letter to the editor off for publication last week. Sadly, Ron passed away on Nov. 13. He was not afraid to share his opinion or to have people disagree with him. His voice will be missed.)

  • The Grant County News’ Web site has gotten a much needed, much improved facelift and we hope you’ll like its new look and additional features.
    The new Web site format is not only visually more appealing, but also the news content and information are easier to find. We’ve also made it much easier to submit photos and news items, including engagement, wedding, birth and anniversary  announcements, community events, letters to the editor, news tips and sports news.

  • 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.

  • Ruben Lewis Baker was a handsome man at 19 years old. He’s what the girls called “a looker” with his wavy dark hair and mischievious grin. It probably didn’t hurt that he drove a Chevrolet Malibu, which was also the cool car to have back in 1967.

    He had just graduated from Walton-Verona High School and had his whole life ahead of him, but when Uncle Sam called in 1968, he answered the call because it was his civic duty.

  • This is in response to a letter written by John Waltz. Congressman Geoff Davis has been very helpful to myself and all of the soldiers that I have referred to him since our deployment to Afghanistan in 2007-08. He continues to be a strong asset to our unit and, he has also helped other units in this area. Congressman Davis came to my unit’s deployment ceremony and he was at our welcome home ceremony.

  • Do you know a miracle from a coincidence? When some unusual thing happens in our life, we may not recognize it as a blessing because it wasn’t big enough. For some people, the wall of China would have to fall down to get their attention to be a miracle, otherwise, the unusual thing would just be a coincidence. Really?

  • As chair of the Kentucky county Judge-Executive Legislative committee, I wish to express my sincere appreciation to your Judge-Executive Darrell Link, for the excellent work he has done on behalf of Grant and all of Kentucky’s counties.

  • With the election now just past, I was searching for a topic and while I was researching, I thought why not talk about voting in the election.

    An article on www.foxnews.com stated that the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals had shot down a law proposing that voters in Arizona prove they are citizens before registering to vote and to show identification before casting their ballots.

  • age coverage about election day. Especially your picture of Julian Wills. Whether one is Republican/Democrat or Independent, one has to admire him. He is 90 years old. He has been active in the election process for 17 years and was up at 4 a.m. and at the precinct at 5 a.m. to be working.

  • eir sponsorship and support for the cross country tournament. We had a lot of compliments on the tournament and thanks to Dry Ridge Toyota our tournament is becoming one of the best in the state. I also appreciate their sponsorship of the Dry Ridge Toyota Invitational Cup. Without their support, our athletes would not be able to experience one of the best soccer tournaments in Northern Kentucky. We appreciate everything they do for the athletes at Grant County High School.
