    Hi! My name is Audrey Cecile Browning.

    I was born on April 30 at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Edgewood.

    My parents are Carol Sullivan and Kevin Browning of Williamstown.

    My grandparents are Donald and Clara Gordon of Williamstown and Francis and Betty Browning of St. Augustine, Fla.

    My favorite things to do are rolling over and spending time with my big brother and grandma and grandpa and being outside.


  • Race for State

    As fall sports are winding down, cross-country is still remaining.

    Both Grant County High School and Williamstown High School are gearing for the regional meet Nov. 6 at Idlewild Park in Burlington, hoping for a spot in the state meet Nov. 13 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

    Coach Marlon Kinsey had a tough decision to make Nov. 1. He had three girls vying for two spots.

    His decision for the two spots was for the girls to run their home course out in the fields next to Sherman Elementary.

  • Election recanvass requested

    The polls may be closed, but the election is not over for three Grant County races.

    Two county-wide candidates have called for a recanvass of vote totals, while two Corinth candidates will see a flip of a coin or drawing of straws decide their fate.

    Republican Steve Wood, who fell short by 45 votes against Judge-Executive Darrell Link, has called for a recanvass of vote totals as a first step in an eventual recount of the votes.

  • Root enlists with Air Force

    Christopher J. Root, a 2008 Grant County High School graduate, enlisted with the United States Air Force on Sept. 23, 2008. He graduated from Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas on Nov. 5, 2008. He is serving as an A10 Crew Chief at Moody Air Force Base in Valdosta, Ga. Root has received an award for maintenance professional of the quarter, and will be promoted to a senior airman in March 2011. He is currently serving as a crew chief over Tactical Aircraft Maintenance with the 23rd AMXS in Afghanistan.

  • 100 years young

    Adversity merely slowed her down. Life’s trials only fortified her resolve, and on Nov. 13, Caroline Vice Ransdell will turn 100-years-old.

    She celebrated at an open house on Nov. 7, where she received best wishes from family, friends, former students and a host of Grant Countians. Standing and calling most by their names, at times she giggled like a school girl.

    How has she lived so long, yet remained so young?

    My parents are Joshua Douglas Saylor and Ashley Lauren Lakes of Corinth.

    My grandparents are Doug and Lynn Lakes of Corinth and Bill and Kim Saylor of Dry Ridge.

    My favorite things to do are playing with my new little sister, McKynzie, going to preschool, playing outside and going to Nascar races with my papaw.


  • Braves end on wrong side of the win-loss column

    Senior night in any sport is a night to celebrate the careers of players that are graduating.

    For the seniors on the Grant County High School football team, the game was one to forget, as the Braves dropped to 2-7, losing 47-6 to Jeffersontown on a cool Oct. 22 evening.

    “Everyone hates to see their team lose, especially senior night, but we knew going in that it was a tough game,” coach Mike Davis said.

    Davis said, however, that there was more to take away from the game than just a loss.

  • Williamstown Band of Spirit wins regionals

    Eleven qualifying bands met at Beechwood High School this past Saturday for the 2010 KMEA Class A East Regional Competition.
