  • Mmmm, mmmm good!
  • Invest

    What is a good investment today? Several strong companies that enjoyed superior reputation years ago are now struggling. Financial investing has always been risky, and the risk has increased in our economy.
    An investment that always provides a positive return is investing in the lives of people for the glory of Christ. God promises a reward for our service if we stay faithful in serving Christ (Gal. 6:7-9).

  • Lady Braves pulls off big district win

    The Grant County Lady Braves softball team pulled off a big win on May 18, in the 32nd District battle against Walton-Verona.

    Savannah Cobb took the mound and scattered seven hits over the seven innings that she pitched.

    One of those errors was in the second inning where the Lady Bearcats could have had a big inning.  

  • Braves advance, Demons fall in districts
  • Lady Demons lose heartbreaker

    The Williamstown Lady Demons played host to the districts this year and entered their District 32 game with Simon Kenton with a lot of confidence.  

    That confidence was destroyed when they lost 4-0 on May 18 at Williamstown High School.  
    Williamstown loaded the bases in the first inning but was not able to cross the plate.  
    That would be the last opportunity for the Lady Demons to score until the sixth inning when they left two runners stranded on the bases.

    Williamstown collected only three hits on the night.
