  • 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?

    The Kentucky State Police and Grant County Sheriff’s Department monitored what appeared to be a small gathering of the Ku Klux Klan in Grant County on May 19.

    The group, of seven to eight KKK members, were standing near the McDonald’s on Violet Road on Saturday evening.

    Some were dressed in robes and hoods.

    They were waving to passing motorists and handing out KKK pamphlets.

    “It was a peaceful only demonstration,” said Trooper David Jones, public information officer for the KSP. “They were asked to leave and they did.”

  • Blaze destroys Corinth grocery

    Corinth residents will be without a grocery store after an early evening fire ripped through Allen Country Store last week.

    The Corinth Baptist Church, however, will be providing a free weekly shuttle for the community as long as the need exists.

    “There are a lot of elderly in the community who walked to the store and don’t have any other transportation so we wanted to provide a service for them,” said Deanna Caldwell, a member of Corinth Baptist.

    The free shuttle will be leaving Corinth Baptist Church at 10 a.m. on Mondays.


    Arson appears to be the cause of an early morning fire May 21 that destroyed the field house/concession stand at Bobby Gibson Memorial Field at Grant County Park in Crittenden.

    A $1,000 reward from the Kentucky State Arson Task Force is available for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the suspect(s).

    Grant County Parks and Recreation director Tabatha Clemons, staff and interns, along with community volunteers, spent the day following the fire passing out flyers door-to-door to communities surrounding the park to notify people about the reward.
