  • Hope for ‘Good Daughters’

    When my sister was little, she wiped spaghetti sauce from her mouth with a piece of bread.

    This is a significant event in our family’s history because, as the Good Daughter, it is probably the one and only time Peggy ever got in trouble.

    In a nanosecond, Peggy did the bread-wipe and Dad reached over and whacked her hand, which stunned us all.

    Not that Dad whacked one of us, but that it was Peggy—the Good daughter!

  • Congratulations to state qualifiers

    It is amazing the amount of athleticism high school students can obtain in a short amount of time.

    Three of the five student-athletes that went to Louisville last week, had only done their qualifying event(s) just this season and were already one of the top 24 in the state in their respective classes.

    On May 17, Williamstown competed in the Class A State Meet at the University of Louisville.

  • McClure signs with Berea

    Grant County High School senior Morgan McClure got to sign her national letter of intent in a different location than most other athletes that sign in the spring.

    McClure signed her national letter of intent with Berea College out in centerfield of the softball field, May 15.

    “It was a special moment for me,” McClure said. “I have worked really hard to get where I am at today and it was special to share that with my mom, dad and sister. They gave up a lot for me and it was neat to do it on my field.
    Knowing that this is my last year here, it meant a lot to me.”

  • Why do you go to church?

    Have you ever asked yourself the question; why do I go to church? Certainly there are many responses to this question. But really, why do you go to church? I want to challenge all church goers to really think about that question. If you are like me you grew up in church, it was what your family did and you really didn’t think about it.
