  • Let the mouse battle begin!

    When I was a lad, the children’s warden read stories to me about the country mouse and the city mouse and lots of other little mice that were good little mice. Saturday morning cartoons showed how big bad cats harassed the good little mice.

  • Williamstown looking for volunteer reading coaches

    The community spoke and the Williamstown School Board listened.

    After several people brought up the need for mentors for students at a recent community forum, the district immediately looked for solutions.

    The school board recently approved $3,800 in funding for a program that will coach 20 volunteers on how to help students with reading struggles.

    One to One: Practicing Reading with Students, a program of the Partnership at NewCities, is designed to help struggling readers through the use of a volunteer reading coach.

  • Gambling issue could end up in voter’s hands

    Sen. Damon Thayer, R-Georgetown, wants the people to decide a controversial issue that has plagued lawmakers.

    Thayer prefiled a constitutional amendment bill Nov. 5 that would permit video lottery terminals or slot machines in Kentucky.

    If passed by the General Assembly, the issue then would be placed on the ballot in the counties where horse tracks currently exist.

    However, race tracks would have to compete with others for licenses for the slots.

  • Cat Attack 11-22-09

    Have any of you seen our defense, particularly our perimeter defense?  If so please return it to Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky attention Coach John Calipari and every Kentucky Wildcats player.  If that doesnít work, maybe all of Big Blue Nation can ask for some defense for Christmas this year? I sure hope Santa Clause is a Kentucky fan.  

  • Cat Attack 11-21-09

    That large exhale you hear is the entire Big Blue Nation after Kentucky’s 72-70 last second victory on Monday night. The Cats didn’t dodge a bullet, they somehow managed to escape a heat-seeking missile. If the rest of the season is that exciting the entire state of Kentucky is going to need a Cardiologist, because I know my heart stopped several times during the last five minutes of the game. Fortunately, John Wall stepped up and sent his popularity to an all time high, if it’s possible to be higher, hitting the game-winning jumper with 0.5 seconds left.

  • Cat Attack 11-20-09

    The Kentucky Wildcats opened the regular season Friday night against the Morehead State Eagles in Rupp Arena.  The big story going into the game was not the beginning of the Calipari era or the kickoff of what should be an amazing season, but rather the absence of one John Wall from the lineup.  For the first twenty minutes that story line seemed very fitting, but the second half turned out to be all about fellow freshman Eric Bledsoe who helped carry the Cats to their first victory of the season 75-59.

  • GCHS boys’ finish 15th at state

    Their goal of finishing in the top 10 at the state meet is still one they will have to work for, but the Grant County boys’ cross country team keeps improving from year to year.

    The boys had set a goal to finish as one of the top 10 teams in the AAA, but ended up finishing 15th on Nov. 14. The Braves were 60 points away from ending their season in the top 10.

    In 2007, the boys finished 20th and in 2008, the boys finished 17th.
