  • I want Grant County to know

    As the duly elected Grant County Jailer, I am charged by law with staffing the jail and organizing a command staff for efficient operations of the facility.
    I proposed an organizational chart on Oct. 12, 2015 that would have cut $25,000 from the current payroll budget. 
    This would have allowed me to possibly hire an additional deputy and reorganize the command structure underneath my supervision.
     I am a retired law enforcement officer and my organizational structure was modeled on the standard law enforcement command chart.  

  • Marshall promoted to editor

    Bryan Marshall is taking on a new role with the Grant County News.
    Marshall, staff writer since 2009, has been named editor following the resignation of Publisher Jamie Baker-Nantz to take another job.
    “I am excited about the opportunity to lead the Grant County News as editor. Jamie has built this newspaper into something the community should be proud of and I hope to continue that success,” Marshall said.


    After nearly three decades, Jamie Baker-Nantz is saying goodbye to the Grant County News and hello to a new opportunity.
    Baker-Nantz recently accepted the position of executive director of the Grant County Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Authority.
    She will fill the role left vacant after Wade Gutman retired in December.
    Baker-Nantz’s last day with the Grant County News was March 30.

  • Demons down Trimble County 8-3

    The Williamstown Demons baseball team took the field March 26 to try and earn their third win this season as they took on Trimble County.
    The team played great and set the tone early to win 8-3.

    Starting the game, the Demons came out with hot bats.
    It took the team one inning to get on the board first and get the lead.
    Strong defense and another fantastic outing by junior pitcher Chris Parsons kept the visitors scoreless for three innings.
