  • Controlling insects on indoor plants


    Have you noticed a sticky substance on the floor beneath your ficus or philodendron? Are there little scabs on the under side of the leaves of your orchid?  Maybe you have noticed that your plants just look a little lack luster. Well, we can blame some plant puniness on being a tropical houseplant indoors in Kentuckiana during the winter.

  • GCHS cheerleaders nab fourth straight regional title

    The seniors on the Grant County High School cheerleading squad accomplished a feat not many cheerleaders have done before, claiming their fourth straight regional title Jan. 8 at Shelby County High School.

    The squad, which competes in a 2 ½ minute routine, which incorporates music and dance, scored the highest out of all of the schools in the 8th Region. Grant County competes in the 16-school medium division and when it came time for warm-ups, head cheerleading coach Leigh Simpson was unsure of how well they were going to compete.

  • Coaches don sneakers for cancer

    The Williamstown Lady Demons swept the season series over Grant County 69-49 Jan. 24 at Grant County High School, during the first of three Coaches vs. Cancer events.

    The admission price for the game was increased by a dollar, with that money going to the Grant County Relay for Life.

    The game brought awareness to cancer and the coaches donned tennis shoes for the game to pay homage to cancer survivors and those who have fallen to cancer.
    Lady Demons coach Mark Wilhoit talked to his players in the locker room before the game about cancer patients.

  • Braves look to end offensive woes at home

    The Braves will look to rebound after losing the past two games, despite shooting more shots.

    “Right now I still like this team,” Braves coach Jim Hicks said. “We are working hard in practice and we are doing good defensively, but statistically we should be winning the games. We are just not shooting the ball well.”

    Each of his players are getting an estimated 300 to 400 shots in practice, which should make them better shooters, Hicks said.
