  • Grant Golf place fourth in Pendleton Invitational

    Coach Michael Camacho was excited about how well the Braves did at the Pendleton County Invitational golf tournament held at the Northern Kentucky Golf Club (former Pendleton County Country Club) on July 31.

    The Grant County High School boys’ golf team finished fourth out of 11 teams.  
    That is pretty good considering two of the Braves top five players did not play.
    Camacho felt that if Bo Hammonds and Jayden Cummins had played they possibly could have finished second.

    The white-sided building on U.S. 25 in Williamstown can’t be missed because it’s got a cannon sitting in the front yard.
    The American Legion Hall Post 137 has been part of the landscape in the county since 1929. It has been host to countless dances, fish fries, wedding receptions and parties, but earned a bad reputation following several raids in the late 70s and early 80s for illegal alcohol sales.
