  • GCHS boys make history during time on team

    With hard work and determination, the Grant County High School boys’ cross country team have become a team to be taken seriously.

    That is due in part to the efforts of the seniors, who have spent their high school careers working to put the Braves in position to succeed for years to come. Each senior started running because they were inspired by a relative, except for Dustin Sullivan, who had another reason all together.

    “I ran because I was chubby, so I joined,” Sullivan said.

  • For GCHS girls, best times were spent with teammates

    The seniors of Grant County’s girls’ cross country team worked hard to make their senior season worthwhile, even if their favorite moments were those that happened during practices.

    “For me, being around teammates and everyone I’ve met while running has made it more enjoyable,” Natalie Norman said. “I’ll probably miss all of my teammates because they are the reason that running is fun. I wouldn’t enjoy it as much without them.”

  • Kinmon returns to Berea with Braves

  • Unloved and forgotten

    The economy is affecting everyone, including the four-legged residents of the Grant County Animal Shelter.

  • Poet’s Corner

    Gone,

    but not forgotten --

    your memory still living

    in the lives of those

    to whom your smile was given.

    Gone,

    home to Heaven --

    your legs are both healed,

    and you are walking with Jesus

    through endless green fields.

    Gone,

    from our lives,

    yet watching from above.

    You cheer with us, cry with us

    and send us your love.

    Gone,

    from your humble home

    to a mansion on high.

    You will greet us in that green field

    when our own time is nigh.
