  • Stacey honored for lifetime achievement

    A lot has changed in 40 years.

    When Reb Stacey first purchased more than 700 acres of forestland in Grant County it was overgrown and did not look like much.

    It simply was a lot of land for the money.

    But, Stacey and his family have been dedicated ever since to restoring the land that rests about 10 miles outside of Dry Ridge.

    Now, filled with more than 20 miles of trails, an incomparable scenic view and an array of wildlife, the acreage has been transformed into the Reb Stacey Woodland and Wildlife Center.

  • Gorby signs with Wilmington College

    Battling through two knee injuries, Candace Gorby earned herself a chance to play college basketball.

    Gorby signed with Wilmington College on May 6.

    “It’s exciting,” Gorby said. “A lot of players don’t play high school ball with the expectancy to go on and play college ball. But ever since I played for Brian Soules in middle school, he always made it feel like it was a possibility for me. To have the opportunity to meet a whole new group of girls and play college ball, it’s exciting.”
