  • Old time attitudes

    How interesting…  When I was young, to hear a speech by the President of the United States was a good thing.  And, because I was and am an American; to listen to the President was a given.  He is, after all, the elected leader of our country, indeed the embodiment of our country.

    However, apparently my views are old, antiquated and, well in some views, apparently un-American.

  • Braves shutout Walton-Verona

    Entering their game against Walton-Verona, the Grant County High School football team knew they were facing a team that was hungry for their first win.

    The problem for the Bearcats was that GCHS was hungrier to stay undefeated.

    The Braves defeated Walton-Verona 21-0 on Sept. 5.

    “The seniors did a good job of leading and it’s always good to start the season 2-0,” GCHS coach Mike Davis said. “I felt like we should have put the ball in the end zone more, but we controlled the line of scrimmage.”

  • Senior connection lifts GCHS to win

    After the snap, quarterback Randy Salyers waited and waited, looking downfield for an open receiver while his offensive line bought him time.

    Wide receiver Tyler Sheffield broke from the line of scrimmage, hustled down the field and battled to get open.

    Before Sheffield was open, Salyers let the ball fly and as it floated in the air, Sheffield snagged it, broke a tackle and ran to the one-yard line before being tackled.
