  • Lady Demons fall to Lady Royals 12-5

    The game was closer than the score, but a loss is still a loss, as the Williamstown Lady Demons fell to Mason County, 12-5, March 26 at home.

    “We struggled with our hitting,” Lady Demons coach Melissa Gayhart said. “We left 10 on base and we just didn’t finish.”

  • ‘Cats advance to ‘Blue Orleans’

    Coach John Calipari might not have wanted revenge to be a motivating factor for his team and said after the game that they never discussed it.  But the blue clad Kentucky fans that filled the Georgia Dome in Atlanta March 23 definitely had it on their mind.

    Terrence Jones got the scoring started with a three pointer and jumper, quickly surpassing his forgettable performance in the first meeting this season.  The fast paced end to end action was only stopped by the quick, and at times questionable, whistles of the officials.

  • A ‘tongue fasting’ for Lent

    I like the Book of James. He doesn’t beat around the bush. Like in Chapter 3, when James is teaching us about “a small member” of our body that is “a restless evil, full of deadly poison.” He is referring to our tongue, of course.

    We are all guilty. I know I can hardly get through a day without saying a harsh word to or about someone. And have you ever just stopped to listen to the conversations around us – among friends and neighbors … and yes -- church members. It seems James knew us well.
