  • Local resident concerned about fiscal responsibility

    I am a resident of Grant County for 49 years. I am concerned about fiscal responsibility in our current county fiscal court.
    There has never been a county occupation tax in Grant County until the Republicans were voted in.
    Now in their third year in office, they said they were out of money and needed to pass an occupation tax. They blamed this on Democrats who served before they were elected because they did not pass an occupation tax.

  • Magistrate supports courthouse repairs, not costly assessment

    In response to the article you published on Sept. 27, 2017 on the front page of the Grant County News, I would like to express my point of view as a magistrate who represents the 1st District; Corinth and Williamstown.  
    I, along with others (based on the number of inquiries I’ve received), were very much surprised to have read that Brandsetter Carroll Inc. was hired to complete an assessment of the courthouse.

  • A Runner’s Request

    As a resident of Grant County and an avid runner, it is difficult to find designated places for training.  My fellow runners and I utilize tracks, treadmills, gyms, sidewalks and rural roads.  In order to train for 5K’s, 10K’s, half marathons and marathons, we must collect our mileage on the back roads of Grant County.  

  • Champions For A Drug-Free Grant County completes tobacco compliance checks

    Champions for a Drug-Free Grant County recently completed tobacco compliance checks in several stores and convenience stores in our county.  These compliance checks were funded by the state of Kentucky’s TRUST (Tobacco Retail Underage Sales Compliance Checks) Program.  Tobacco compliance checks are used to help eliminate the sale and distribution of tobacco products to youth under the age of 18.  

  • Steps to prevent Type 2 diabetes

    Kentucky is facing a diabetes epidemic. It is estimated that over 600,000 Kentuckians have diabetes and 1.1 million people have pre-diabetes.
    One of the best ways to attack the diabetes epidemic is prevent it .
    Type 2 diabetes can be delayed or prevented and we know how to do it.
    Action steps are needed to screen for, diagnose, and treat pre-diabetes. Pre-diabetes is a serious condition in which the blood glucose (sugar) is higher than normal but not high enough to diagnose type 2 diabetes.

  • Holding Williamstown, GC in The Light

    The Quaker meeting is “Holding Williamstown and Grant County In The Light” (a traditional way of saying we are praying for you) because many of the city and county residents are beginning to realize you got scammed by a religious con artist with the bond issues passed and other public money you gave him, as evidenced by the chaos at the Grant County Fiscal Court budget meeting.



    Stop the elimination of  the arts


    It was indeed a Happy New Year when Craig Houchens, on behalf of Forcht Bank, presented Grant County Helping Hands with a generous check to purchase food for the residents of Grant County.
    Forcht Bank has always been a business that recognizes the needs of Grant County’s people and strives to meet those needs.
    They truly believe in giving back to the community.
    The volunteers at Helping Hands wish to thank Forcht Bank for their generous support.
