  • Williamstown students throw down reading challenge

    Williamstown Independent Schools is hoping families and the community join students in the cooperative reading experience “Come Read With Us.”

    Now through Dec. 21, the goal of a district-wide initiative is to get as many people as possible in Grant County to read the popular novel “The Hunger Games” by Suzanne Collins as a way to bridge literacy gaps.

    “The plan is to challenge anyone to read this at the same time as us,” said Tina Withorn, WMS teacher. “It doesn’t have to be together, just at the same time.”

  • PERSONALLY SPEAKING

    In a rural area, trick-or-treat was fun, but kind of a pain.
    I lived on a farm like most of my neighbors so houses weren’t that close together and running up and down streets in a subdivision was for those city kids.
    We did, though, enjoy dressing up and piling into a car and begging for treats.
    Buying a costume from a store was something that was unheard of. I can imagine the look on my mom’s face if I had of even suggested it. Instead, we had to use our imaginations and whatever was at hand to make our costume.

  • PERSONALLY SPEAKING

    Growing up, Halloween was pretty much the same every year.
    Put on that year’s costume (each year, they got less cutesy and progressively scary).
    Grab a bag that my dad got from his work and hit the streets looking for good candy.
    I was always picky about my candy so a lot of it would either go to my older brother or my parents.
    My mom loves the Smarties while my dad enjoyed butterscotch and other hard candies.
    I personally loved the taffy type of candy with some occasional chocolate.

    n, my fiancé Jessica Purnell and I decided we would be our two favorite mascots of the Cincinnati Reds, Rosie and Mr. Redlegs for Halloween.
    What was easy for us was that we already had jersey tops for our costumes, so the remainder of our outfits was going to either be handmade or bought at a sporting goods store.
