  • Yes, Grant County there is a Santa Claus . . .

    I watched a magical thing happen last Saturday right here in our community and will get the opportunity again this Saturday.
    More than 40 children were able to select presents for themselves and their families during the 2010 Kentucky State Police Shop With A Trooper program held Dec. 11 at Wal-Mart in Dry Ridge.
    On Dec. 18, several more children will be shopping during the Shop With A Cop program organized by the Grant County Sheriff’s Office and Williamstown Police Department.

  • City planning is a must

    Rick Skinner, mayor elect of Williamstown, is jumping in with both feet. Skinner, a long-time downtown business owner, has called a special city council meeting on Dec. 15 for the council to craft a mission/vision statement.
    That’s getting down to business and in a hurry, which is exactly what the city needs.
    Making a plan for the city is going to be critical, especially if Williamstown becomes home for the Ark Encounter which is expected to draw as many as 5,000 visitors a day when the project is completed in 2014.

  • Demons searching for complete game

    A new coach brings a new methodology of teaching players basketball.

    First-year Williamstown coach Steve Sigmon is in the learning curve.

  • Lady Braves make some adjustments

    With the snow and ice in Grant County, the Lady Braves are still working out the kinks, practicing for a county rival match up with Williamstown Dec. 17.

    “The team is spending a lot of time getting better defensively,” Lady Braves coach Darrell Guffey said.

    One of the adjustments that the Lady Braves has had to make is moving junior guard Erica Stith to point guard in the absence of eighth grade point guard Macy Wright.

    “Wright suffered a broken wrist,” Guffey said. “She will be out for three to four weeks.”
