  • A bond on, off the court

    Eurides said, “To a father growing old, there is nothing dearer than a daughter.”

    For Mark and Tori Wilhoit the bond of father and daughter will go beyond the years of being a coach and player.

    “The beginning was difficult,” he said. “I was pretty hard on her in the beginning, but I wouldn’t trade those years for anything.”

    Tori first got interested in basketball when her dad introduced her to the sport when she was in the fourth grade.

  • Sugar Daddy's doughnuts

    Greg Traylor doesn’t come close to resembling a little, old lady dressed in a white apron hand cranking out fresh donuts on a daily basis, but he does whoop out one tasty treat after another.
    Traylor has worked in construction. He’s worked as a bull dozer operator. He’s operated a backhoe and done septic work and excavating, but cakes, pies and doughnuts?
    Greg isn’t afraid of hard work, just ask anyone who knows him, but he never dreamed that upon opening a donut shop in Dry Ridge he’d be the busiest he’s ever been.

  • Autism doesn’t keep Eggemeier out of sports

    Not many people with autism have the ability to participate in sports, but a Grant County High School sophomore served as a team manager.

    “I love basketball,” Andrew Eggemeier said. “I played basketball in the second and third grade and my team won the county championship.”

  • March Mayhem!

    With the NCAA Tournament starting up this week, students and teachers at Grant County Middle School got their mayhem on with a student-faculty basketball game March 11.

    The game was played between eighth graders and faculty members at GCMS, with the faculty winning the game.

    Proceeds from the concessions at the game went to the GCMS Relay for Life team. Veronica Camacho, co-captain of the relay team, estimated that they raised around $1,000.

  • Addicted

    Jimmie thought he was a good father. Three years later, he knows he was lying to himself.

    The 30-year-old Grant County resident would come home after a day of landscaping full of energy and play with his daughters.

    Jimmie was there for them when they needed him, taking them to the bus stop every morning and driving them to school if need be.

    A football-field length away in a shed behind his Dry Ridge home, Jimmie was making methamphetamine daily.
