    Bad weather hasn’t wrecked havoc on Grant County Schools as much as last year — at least not so far.
    Still, even with several snow learning days to soften the blow, the district is discussing plans to keep from going to school further into June.
    One possibility is losing part or all of spring break for a second consecutive year.

  • It’s the party, dummy!

    You know what really irks me? When people at work don’t turn off the bathroom light when they’re done.
    Our company is trying to reduce expenses and one of the easiest things to do is Turn. Off. The. Light!
    I don’t know if it’s a problem with the men’s bathroom, although I’m guessing it is. So, men: Turn. Off. The. Light. Too!
    There, I said it, and that sure felt good.

    The Williamstown Demons boy’s basketball team gave it all they had against Simon Kenton on Feb. 23, but came up on the short end of the score, losing 85-70 to the home team in the District 32 matchup.
    It was a big turnaround from their previous meeting with the Pioneers where the Demons fell at home by a 23-point deficit.
