  • Goe to soar with the Eagles in 2012

    Grant County Braves senior pitcher Aaron Goe already has a spot waiting for him on the list of pitchers for the 2012 season at Morehead State University.

    Goe signed his national letter of intent in November, which gave him a sense of security going into his senior year at GCHS.

    “It feels really good knowing where I am going,” he said. “It is more relaxed for me. If I make a bad play here, I still know I have a spot with Morehead.”


  • Softball rivalry set for some PING!

    Mark it on your calendars.

    The first of a two-game series between the Grant County Lady Braves and the Williamstown Lady Demons will be April 7 at Grant County High School. First pitch is set for 5:30 p.m.

    Last season, the Lady Braves swept the series, not allowing a run in either game.

    This season, Lady Demons’ senior shortstop Tori Wilhoit hopes for a different outcome.

    “I am tired of them sweeping us, so my goal is to beat them both times and end my last year sweeping them,” she said.

  • Bizarros dot landscape

    We live in a Bizarro world. Back in the 1960s, there was a Superman comic book series, “Tales of the Bizarro World.”

    Bizarro Superman lived on Htrae, a square planet where alarm clocks dictated when people went to sleep, ugly was beautiful and upside down and backwards were normal. All Bizarros were imperfect duplicates of other living things; they were illiterate and spoke with poor grammar.


    After more than 40 years of not having a full-time minister, some congregations might give up on the idea. But that wouldn’t be in keeping with the motto of the Crittenden Christian (Disciples of Christ) Church: “With God, all things are possible.”

    Their congregation of around 40 people embarked on a three-year campaign to raise more than $150,000 in commitments to the church.
