  • Chamber making Grant County a better place to work, live, do business

    “Success isn’t just about what you accomplish in your life, it’s about what you inspire others to do.”
    Q. What do you get when you mix a doctor, a teacher, a dentist and a volunteer?
    A. The winners of the 2017 Grant County Chamber of Commerce Annual Awards program.
    Last Friday night, the business community gathered at Main Street Gardens to honor people who give of themselves to patients, to children and to the community.
    Honored were the following:

  • Williamstown end-of-school events highlights dedication to students

    Dear Williamstown Independent Stakeholders,
    Spring has sprung which signifies longer, warmer days and the near end of another school year.   It is amazing how fast the 2016-2017 school year has progressed, which is most likely the direct result of the flurry of activities in our district over the past several months.  
    We are proud of the many individual and group accomplishments by students and staff this school year. From academic, athletic, and extra-curricular achievements, it is definitely an exciting time to be a Williamstown Demon.  

  • Fire restores prairie

    Back in 2007, we installed a five-acre tall grass prairie with assistance from the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Habitat Improvement Program.  Each year they assist a number of landowners in various ways that improve habitat, prevent erosion and protect waterways.  Basically, you do the work but they supply you with the materials needed to get the job done.

  • Bits, pieces, random musings about grace

    It seems the older I get, the less space I have in my brain, like all the file folders in the filing cabinet are full.
    More often than I care to admit, I’ll write myself a quick note intending to develop it into a column later, but when later comes I’ll have no clue what I was thinking when I wrote the note.
    However, all is not hopeless, as occasionally I go through my folder of assorted notes and cobble together a column of bits and pieces and random musings in the hope that something might be helpful to someone.
