  • Manning named January YPA winner

    The Youth Performance Award winner for January is Jamie Manning, a senior at Williamstown High School.

  • Cheerleaders place 13th at state competition

    As the Grant County High School varsity cheerleaders left for Bowling Green on Feb. 13, they each tapped a sign that said, ‘Perform Like Champions.’

    They had hopes of finishing in the top 10, dreaming that they could possibly finish in the top 5.

    When the time came to perform, they didn’t live up to their own expectations, dropping four stunts and finishing 13th. But, according to coach Leigh Simpson, their performance was unexpected after how they had been performing recently.

  • Williamstown girls fall in overtime on senior night

    On senior night, the Williamstown Lady Demons battled with Pendleton County, with the lead going back and forth.

    The Lady Demons ultimately lost in overtime, falling 60-52 on Feb. 16.

    “We did a poor job rebounding,” coach Mark Wilhoit said. “That was the key to me. They out hustled us and we have to do a better job of keeping them off the glass. To be small, we’re a pretty good rebounding team, but they exposed one of our weaknesses that we have to improve before the district tournament.”

  • Local business partners with Dress for Success

    Landing a job in today’s challenging economy is no easy task, but for anyone attempting to enter the workforce, making a good first impression is a crucial step towards success. Wearing proper business attire to a job interview, for example, speaks volumes about what you have to offer.

    But for women attempting to enter the workforce, a common problem exists: without a job, they can’t afford a suit, and without a suit, they can’t get a job.

  • Adventures in the snow
