  • CMZ fourth graders win contest with comic, superhero tale

    Once upon a time there were four kids named Phillip, Kenon, Ross and Daniel. They were going to a Mini Mart to buy something.
    So, they started shopping. After they paid for everything, they told each other what they bought.

    Ross said, “Look at what I got, it’s a Hot Wheel!”
    Then Phillip said, “I got a pack of gum.”
    Next, Daniel said, “I got an awesome Nerf gun!”
    Finally, Kenon spoke up and said, “I got a Hershey’s chocolate bar.”

  • Williamstown begins prep for ACT in September

    Juniors at Williamstown High School prepared for the ACT for months before taking the test for real March 5.
    The district began by giving all juniors a practice/mock ACT on Sept. 19.
    The results of the practice test were analyzed and disaggregated, and individual RTI programs were developed for each student who fell below benchmarks in any of the four subject areas.
    WHS guidance counselor Brand Feagan then met with all students in small groups in the fall to discuss the areas of improvement needed to meet benchmarks.

  • READY FOR THE FUTURE

    The ACT test is a big deal and not just for high school students planning to go to college.

    Since 2008, the ACT is given to all juniors in Kentucky. How well a student does on the ACT determines senior-year classes, co-op opportunities, and “College and Career Readiness.”
    All juniors in Kentucky took the ACT on Tuesday, March 5, but preparations to make it a special event began weeks ago.

  • Has Jesus impacted your life?

    When it rains it pours! Over the past few weeks, I have attended multiple funerals and visitations. As I prepare for these times, I like to discuss the legacy of the deceased with the family. How will this person be remembered? What are the qualities that stand out here at the end? This process usually leads me to consider my own life and legacy. What will people remember about me when I’m gone? What are the stories and memories people will have of me as they say goodbye?

  • Schools practice tornado safety

    If practice makes perfect, students at Crittenden-Mt. Zion Elementary will be more than ready if a tornado ever threatens safety at the school.

    Just a few days after the one-year anniversary of the tornado that whipped through Crittenden, CMZ was among local schools who participated in a statewide tornado drill on March 5.

  • LOOKING BACK: Tornado changes community

    The sun is shining. Only a couple of bright, blue tarps cover rooflines in Harvester’s Subdivision.
    Flashback to a year ago on March 2 when an EF3 tornado, with winds of 135 miles per hour, ripped through Crittenden and into southern Kenton County, several homes and apartment buildings were knocked off foundations. Others had walls ripped away exposing a baby bed left untouched but a refrigerator tossed around like a toy, while still other residents’ vehicles were mashed and mangled like demolition derby cars.

  • Dry Ridge neighbors say no to outdoor event venue

    More than 70 residents of Dry Ridge-Mt. Zion Road and surrounding areas do not want an outdoor event venue for a neighbor.
    These residents have signed a petition asking the Grant County Board of Adjustments to deny a request by Larry and Mary Creekmore granting a conditional use permit to operate the venue on property they own at 242 Boltz Lake Road in Dry Ridge.
    Mary Creekmore doesn’t understand why the community wouldn’t welcome an event facility that could showcase the beauty of the area and bring business to local hotels and restaurants.

  • Better things from God

    CBS Sports must hate Kentucky.  Why else would they insist on showing the Lattner shot during every basketball game? You remember that shot, right?
