  • WHS girls fall to Walton-Verona

    With a two-week break between games, the Williamstown Lady Demons were hoping to shake off their rust against Walton-Verona.

    The Lady Demons were sluggish and came away from the district showdown with a 42-31 loss.

    “I thought the first half we didn’t come out ready to play,” coach Mark Wilhoit said. “We were never really in sync. We weren’t ready. We talked about everything Walton was going to do and what we needed to do to stop them and we didn’t do it. Until we learn to listen, this is going to be continue to happen.”

  • GCHS cheerleaders prepare for return to state

    The Grant County High School varsity cheerleaders hope that Valentine’s Day will be especially sweet for them.

    The cheerleaders will perform at the KAPOS state competition on Feb. 14 and are looking for a top 10 finish to build on their performance at the region competition.

    “We took a good look at the score sheet from region,” coach Leigh Simpson said. “I also let the girls come in and watch the routine as a cheerleader and asked what they saw we could fix and what they liked. We narrowed it down to three really important things.”

  • Crews battle ice, downed trees to clear roads

    Ice and snow made for slick roads and cautious driving last week as Grant County saw its first winter storm of the season.

    While kids sledding or building a snowman seemed to be nonexistent with the frigid temperatures and hard ground, snow plows and salt trucks patrolled the street at every turn.

  • Lady Braves comeback against Carroll is one point too short

    Down by as many as eight points in the final minutes of the fourth quarter against Carroll County, the GCHS girls’ basketball team could have given up. They could have drifted through the final possessions and waited for the buzzer to sound.

    But they fought back, picking it up on offense and defense to cut the Lady Panthers lead to one with only a few seconds left. A heave from half court could have won the game for the Lady Braves, but it didn’t hit the net, giving Carroll County a 61-60 win on Feb. 6.

    The Kentucky Wildcats looked to rebound from their first conference loss of the season on Jan.

  • Cat Attack 2-4-09

    Depression.  Anger.  Confusion.  Fear.  These are the feelings that have been increasingly taking up my time after each Kentucky basketball game.  Kentucky fans are quickly trying to schedule an appointment with their doctors to get on some antidepressants and anxiety medicine as this year’s season is quickly plummeting into a dark abyss.  OK, maybe that is a little melodramatic, but in all seriousness this season’s success or failure will be determined in the next few games.  

  • Washington trip was history in the making

    When Keegan Bailey studied U.S. presidents in first grade at Williamstown Elementary he noticed something.

    “He came home one day and pointed out that, ‘Mommy, none of the presidents look like me. They’re all old, white men,’” said Lynn Bailey, mother of the bi-racial Keegan.

    When Sen. Barack Obama was elected president, Lynn decided to take her oldest son to Washington D.C., to see the historic inauguration in person on Tuesday, Jan. 20.
