  • Stith signs letter with TMC

    Grant County High School senior Erica Stith signed her national letter of intent to play softball for Thomas More College, May 11 in the GCHS library.

    “It was so exciting,” Stith said. “I was looking forward to 2:30 p.m. to sign the paper. I was thinking of it all week.”

  • Five qualify for Louisville

    Hard work and dedication paid off for five local athletes, as they will head to the Kentucky High School Athletic Association State Track and Field meet, May 17-19 at the University of Louisville.

    Grant County High School junior Taylor Cummins was the lone representative for her school, qualifying in the discus throw event with a distance of 85 feet, 3 inches.

    It was the first time qualifying in the discus throw event, an event she just started performing in about three weeks ago.


    Baseball is a big part of my ministry, and I serve as the head coach at Asbury University. The Asbury team began this season with a 0-17 record. That’s right. We lost our first 17 games – and most of them weren’t close. Have you ever been through a “losing streak” in your life? I have – and I think many of you who may never have even played baseball can relate to what a 17-game losing streak feels like.

  • Super Survivor Sunday celebrated May 20

    The Grant County Relay For Life Committee is asking all Grant County churches to recognize and honor their cancer survivors in some way on Sunday, May 20 for Super Survivor Sunday.

    • There are many, many responsibilities that go with the title of Motherhood. A mother passes on her faith in  many ways - work ethic, money, behavior and spirituality. If you want to keep your children’s feet on the ground, you need to put some responsibility on their shoulders. Pretty is what you are, beauty is what you do with it.

  • Pit Stop Campaign aims to save Pit Bulls

    Boomer is gentle and loving, an over grown lap dog who just wants to play.

    When approached, his skinny tail whips fast and furious.

    Boomer and others dogs like him are looking for a forever home, but when visitors come to the Grant County Animal Shelter, they often stop to look at him, but they keep on going.

    Unfortunately for Boomer, a Pit Bull, his breed has a bad reputation, which is why Marsha Chaney, the shelter director, has started the “Pit Stop Campaign.”
