    Grant County fell to 0-3 on the season after offensive struggles again kept the Braves scoreless in a 22-0 loss to Henry County on Sept. 1.

    The Grant County Lady Braves volleyball team hosted Pendleton County on Thursday, Aug. 31, at Grant County High School.  The Lady Braves evened their record on the season at 5 -5 with the two-game sweep of the visitors.

    For the first time this season, the Grant County Lady Braves ended their game in a tie at 3-3 against the Gallatin County Lady Wildcats. The tie pushed their record to 1-5-1. Goals came from Cecilia Reed, Heidi Chischilly and Amber Faehr – all freshman.
    Gallatin struck first with a goal early in the first half, after senior defender Madeline Tucker went down with an injury. Goalkeeper India Homer had initially blocked the shot, but after it bounced out of her hands, Taylor Tainsh followed up and knocked it in.

  • Op-ed: Saving Kentucky’s retirement systems

    Kentucky’s pension systems are in critical condition. While certain state retirement plans are arguably in “better shape” than others are, every system is severely underfunded and rapidly spiraling downward towards a single outcome: no more money to pay Kentucky’s retirees.
    Understandably, retirees and those nearing retirement are concerned. Over the past 10 years, Kentucky’s pension systems have lost more than $7 billion in value.

  • Immunizations remain important part of back-to school routine

    One of the toughest things a parent will do is send their child to college. I have done it twice and still find myself worrying: Are they eating enough? Meeting new friends? Finding time to study?
    Fortunately, parents today have much less to stress about when it comes to their children’s health. Thanks to modern medicine and immunizations, we no longer live in fear of many serious illnesses that once posed massive threats.

  • Favorite fall perennials

    There are some perennials that I can’t live without because of their fabulous late summer and fall performance.  Plant them in your garden now because you will overlook them at garden centers come spring. My mixed perennial beds look the best this time of the year (barring any unpleasant summer drought- and please ignore the weeds!)  The black-eyed Susan’s, Russian sage and various species of Aster, Salvia and Nepeta are prolific but they are only mediocre anchor plants compared to some of the other species that come on this time of the year.
