  • SPORTS TALK ... Reminiscing my running days

    I had never heard about a team practicing at midnight in high school.

    Yes, I know there are plenty of college basketball teams that gather that night inside an arena, but for the Grant County High School cross country team, a 23-year tradition convened on July 15.

    “I am excited and nervous,” Halee said. “There is going to be more people there with more experience than I do, but I am still looking forward to it.”

    Bryan said as soon as he found out he was excited.

    For their parents, Mandi and Chuck, it is an inspiring moment for their children.

  • Little getting BIG for football

    When school lets out for the summer and you don’t have the sense of a coach or teacher instructing you, it can be easy to stop what you’ve worked hard for.
