  • Braves baseball season comes to an end

    The season came to a close for the Grant County baseball team, as they fell to Henry County 6-5, in the first round of the Kentucky High School Association 8th Region tournament at Simon Kenton High School in Independence.

    After having a 5-4 lead going into the bottom of the sixth inning, the Braves were nearing an appearance in the semi-finals of the tournament, but a series of errors in the inning led to two runs for Henry County and the eventual win.

  • Lady Braves has “state” of mind

    The loss in the district tournament was a disappointing loss for the team and coach Ott Reed, but it also was a loss they could afford, since the top two teams from the district tournament advance to the regional tournament.

    “We want to continue to look at programs and see where we can try to enhance the quality of life here,” she said. “Whether that’s just trying to keep our parks clean and beautiful and preserving the greenspace we have or expanded more, I’m always trying to keep my eyes open and embrace any opportunity we have.”

  • ENERGY PROGRAM SAVES THOUSANDS

    With Grant County and Williamstown Independent Schools feeling squeezed financially, the school districts are saving thousands of dollars after hiring an energy manager last year.

    In July 2010, both school districts joined an energy consortium with three other school districts to hire Jon Nipple as energy manager to propose various ways to save energy and money.

    Since that time, both districts have saved through energy conservation practices and selecting the best utility rates.
