  • Lady Braves defeat Cooper, fall to Walton-Verona

    With a win over Cooper High School, the GCHS Lady Braves showed the ability they have and how well they can play defense.

    The Lady Braves shut down Cooper, coming away with a 44-36 victory on Jan. 16.

    “We had a slow first half and couldn’t get things going very well,” coach Darrell Guffey said. “We played a pretty good second half and a really good fourth quarter. We settled down and played better. We had some players step up. Tyanna Workman made some plays and our guards settled in and got better in the second half.”

  • Williamstown woman is witness to change

    A tear squeezed from the corner of Della Jones’ eye on Jan. 20 as she watched Barack Obama take the podium to be sworn in as the 44th President of the United States.

    She dabbed at her eyes with a crumpled tissue.

    “Hallelujah,” she said softly to no one in particular.

    During Obama’s speech, she bobbed her head in agreement and smiled.

    Jones, who will turn 106 years old in July, continued to hope that she’d live to see the day that an African American would be elected as president.

  • CAT ATTACK 1-26-09

    The Kentucky Wildcats traveled down south the past weekend to face off against Alabama’s Crimson Tide. The only thing more odd than this team’s mascot was the game itself. It would be overly polite to say the game was a defensive struggle. Anyone other than Jodie Meeks seemed unable to make a shot as the team had more turnovers than made baskets in the first half. The sad thing was that Kentucky actually shot a slightly higher percentage than Alabama in the first half, but still only managed to score 19 points. Yes, 19 points.
