  • Williamstown Baseball recognizes seniors
  • Loving/hating God’s rescue

    Here’s the dichotomy: One of the things I love most about God is also the thing I hate most.
    His help is always on time. Always. He is never, ever late. But he’s also rarely, if ever, early.
    And it makes me crazy. Grab the bottle of Xanax crazy.
    After I had my first daughter, I became afraid of what I thought was an increasingly evil world and didn’t want to bring another child into it. Maybe my fear was grounded in truth - the world is evil - but it was also based on a deep lack of trust in God’s ability to care for me and my family.

  • GCMS students participate in Earth Day

    The annual Apache Earth Day Art Sculpture was held recently. The goal was to make an art piece that was made out of recycled objects to honor Earth Day.  It was a day to think about how people can conserve the environment. There are several ways to conserve the natural resources: reduce, reuse and recycle.  The artwork showcased focuses on reusing and recycling.  Grant County Middle School had several winners in different categories.

  • Ten-run inning leads Lady Braves sweep of Lady Demons

    The Grant County Lady Braves picked a good time to break their slump when they met the Williamstown Lady Demons on May 7.

    They snapped their 10-game losing streak by defeating the Lady Demons for the second time this year.  
    In fact, the last time the Grant County team had won a game was April 13 when they defeated Williamstown.  

  • 2015 GRANT COUNTIAN OF THE YEAR

    Julian Wills didn’t know he was about to be named the 2015 Grant Countian of the Year as he sat smiling and greeting friends and neighbors in Williamstown’s gym on April 25.
    His trademark dark glasses hid the look of surprise when the Grant County Chamber of Commerce’s annual award was given to him.

    He looked around the room and it still didn’t sink in.

  • It’s the party, dummy!

    You know what really irks me? When people at work don’t turn off the bathroom light when they’re done.
    Our company is trying to reduce expenses and one of the easiest things to do is Turn. Off. The. Light!
    I don’t know if it’s a problem with the men’s bathroom, although I’m guessing it is. So, men: Turn. Off. The. Light. Too!
    There, I said it, and that sure felt good.
