  • Five seniors are a ‘Band of Brothers’

    For five seniors, the end of this year will not end the bond they have made over the past four seasons on the football field.

    The Braves honored J.T. Allhouse, Josh Brewer, Lucas Button, A.J. Hall and Ethan Magee before the Oct. 21 game in front of family and friends.

    Even though the scoreboard read 55-7 when the final seconds ran off the clock, Allhouse said the score isn’t reflective of the way the team played.


    The Northern Kentucky University-Grant County Center gave high schoolers a taste of postsecondary education Oct. 17 with “College For a Day.”

    Students from Grant County and Williamstown high schools were among the group that attended the event.

    Betsy John Jennings, director of NKU-Grant County Center, gave a brief overview of the center and its benefits to the juniors and seniors.

  • 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.”

  • Four arrested in Dry Ridge break ins

    Two adults and two juveniles have been arrested in connection with a string of robberies in Dry Ridge that occurred within the last several weeks.

    Two juveniles, one 16 and one 17, were also charged. One of the teens was lodged in the Campbell County Detention Center.


    Firefighters from seven departments battled a blaze, which leveled a Cordova business last week.

    A Corinth firefighter received minor injuries after he was knocked down by an explosion inside the wood  frame structure.

    The fire broke out around 4:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 21 at Mike’s Auto Salvage on KY 330.

    The cause of the fire is not known but a deputy fire marshal was scheduled to visit the site on Oct. 26 to see if a cause could be determined.

    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.
