  • 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.

  • There is a battle in our country. It is going on every day and it is being fought without many people even knowing it is happening. It is the battle for our American way of life and the freedoms that we treasure and enjoy.

  • Pink is the new black – at least at PHI Air Medical.  No, it is not a fashion statement, rather a statement about life and health.

    October is breast cancer awareness month. PHI Air Medical is on a mission to touch the lives of moms, grandmothers, sisters, daughters and female friends this month.  

    One in eight women will be diagnosed in their lifetime, 40,000 die each year and every 14 minutes a life is lost to the disease – the reality is that precaution and awareness are the best defense.

    Fast facts about breast cancer:

  • Those of us in Grant County have a special service in our community that some may not know about.

    Recently, I had to have surgery for cancer that required radiation twice a day for five days consecutive days and occurring six hours apart, at 6 a.m. and 4 p.m., on Thomas More Parkway.

    Due to some circumstances, I was not able to drive myself and needed help. I called the coordinator of the American Cancer Society and talked to Darlene Houchens. She in turn called volunteers that take their own time and expenses to help those in need like myself.

  • Thanks to the 87 people who paid for and attended the Spears Foundation Feed the People Benefit for the Free Lunch Kitchen on Oct. 14. It was an awesome event and if you missed it, you missed something special.

    Tickets sold out two weeks before the event. We even added a surprise or two, but that’s what we always do when we have a Hogan House dinner or one of our other dinner events.  

    Taylor Henry put on a wonderful show mixing his own songs with a couple of favorites of his grandmother who was in the audience.

  • Harvey Perleberg is my choice for jailer. He has twice the experience of his opponent.

    I worked with him at the jail from 1997 to 2000.

  • I have known Brian Linder for several years and for the last couple of weeks I have been able to help him with his campaign for magistrate. That has been an experience that is out of this world. I’m a political science student at Northern Kentucky University and the experience I have gotten from this has been that of which can’t be matched.

  • I’m writing this letter as an endorsement for Brian Linder of Dry Ridge, who is a candidate for one of our local magistrate races.

  • Harvey Perleberg has my vote for jailer on Nov. 2. I know he has the ability and knowledge to lead the jail in the right direction and he has twice the experience of his opponent.

    Perleberg is a World War II historian. His father was a waist gunner on a B-17, who went on 36 missions over Europe. When a B-17 came to Lunken Airport, he took his father to see it. When he asked his father what he thought of it, his dad answered, “Well, I remember it being a whole lot bigger.”

  • My name is John Waltz and I am running for Congress because I share the frustration and anger that so many other people are feeling this year.  Our government is not functional and I am tired of watching those who are supposed to represent us play their own political games.  

  • I write in support of Wanda Crupper Hammons for Magistrate, 2nd District, in Grant County.  Wanda Crupper Hammons, a life-long resident of Grant County,  is honest and hard-working, part-time employee of the Dry Ridge Fire Department.  Wanda is certified in multiple roles in emergency services and has served in that role for 12 years.  Wanda Crupper Hammons also has a backround in administraion having been previously employed for 15 years of the Grant County Board of Education in budgeting and human resources.

  • Brian Linder is presently magistrate for Dry Ridge, District 2. He is a Grant County native and has  remained here all his life. I have known him since he was born.

    I have always found him to be honest, truthful, hardworking and to have used integrity in all of his actions. He has worked hard for the citizens of this county and has sacrificed money and time to be a magistrate, so that he can make a positive difference in our government.

  • I would like to publicly thank Judge Executive Darrell Link for his prompt attention regarding an accident I had in March of this year.

  • In the state of Kentucky, it is the job of the magistrate to oversee the spending of our tax dollars.  Read that again and let it sink in.

    Brian Linder is the person for this job. His experience alone speaks for itself. His daily job for the Owen County RECC is to save us money.  Not for a big company, but for us. Right now, money is hard to come by, and even harder to keep, yet government spending seems to be at an all time high!  Why do I have to stay within my budget, when the government doesn’t have to?  

  • For the years I have known Wanda Hammons, I have known her to be honest, full of integrity, full of character and extremely energetic. She stays busy and prefers it that way. What impresses me the most is her love for her community and its people, and she is always willing to stand up for what is right, regardless of the repercussions.

    Simply stated, Hammons is ‘good people.’ I am proud to speak up on her behalf on whatever endeavor she pursues.
