  • NRAgate? Hammons, Linder square off over endorsement

    Things got lively between state representative candidates Brian Linder and Wanda Crupper Hammons during the Oct. 11 candidates forum sponsored by the Grant County News and Grant County Chamber of Commerce.

    Hammons and Linder, who are looking to replace the retiring Royce Adams, were the final candidates at the forum at Williamstown High School.


    Connie Taylor is mad.
    Her anger bubbled over as she stared at hours upon hours of hard work that are now nothing more than a pile of soot, ashes and burned, twisted metal.

    “It’s a sad day for Grant County and I’m glad I didn’t see it on fire because it would have just been too hard,” Taylor said.
    Taylor’s gaze was long and hard at what used to be the Dry Ridge Consolidated Colored School, which was destroyed in a suspicious blaze around 1:52 a.m. on Oct. 14.
