  • Lady Demons get hard fought win...

    It was surely not an easy win for the Lady Demons, but it was a win as they defeated the Lady Cats 55-46 Dec. 6 in Williamstown.

  • Lady Braves search for continued...

    Any loss is a hard loss for a team and for Lady Braves coach Darrell Guffey, the first two games were tough, but it is time to look forward.

    Grant County lost to the Lady Pioneers 80-37 Dec. 3 in their first home game of the regular season.

  • Department of Fish and Wildlife...

    More than 230 people attended a Nov. 29 town hall meeting in Gilbertsville held by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. The Monday night meeting was the first of nine sessions scheduled across the state during the next two weeks.

    “A lot of people ran through heavy rain just so they could join us for this meeting,” noted Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Commissioner Jon Gassett. “That shows us the real interest that people have in fish and wildlife issues.”

  • Lady Braves fine tune for Simon...

    The Grant County Lady Braves will have to make some improvements in time for their regular-season home match up with Simon Kenton Dec. 3, as the team fell to the Lady Rebels 74-36 Nov. 29 at Owen County High School.

    “We have to get better in all aspects of the game,” Coach Darrell Guffey said after the game. “We can’t mature them overnight and we just are going to have to work with them on lots of things.”

    One of those “things” will be getting the girls in better shape with more conditioning in practice.

    Here's a look at sports action throughout the county.

  • It's finally here!

    If you are like me there is no better time in Kentucky than early November. The temperatures have finally cooled down, the leaves are falling, deer hunting starts, and most importantly the Kentucky Wildcats basketball season finally gets started in earnest. Even in a year where I was able to attend my beloved Cincinnati Reds’ first playoff baseball game in 20 years the start of a new UK season can never get here fast enough. 

  • Gold Powerhouse wins second title

    Not many kids can say they have won a Super Bowl, but for seven players on the Grant County Powerhouse, they can say they have won back-to-back titles, defeating Owen County Oct. 31.

    For coach Scott Mann it was an unexpected, but a big moment.

    “The coaches and I emphasized it had not been done since the teams were split five years ago,” he said.

    In most towns or counties for each level of youth football, there is only one team to play on.


    “To give anything less than your best, is to sacrifice the gift,” said the late runner Steve Prefontaine.

    For nine runners from Grant County, they will have the opportunity to show they are one of the best in the state of Kentucky, Nov. 13 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

    The Grant County boys’ team for the third consecutive season, finished as runner up at the regional meet Nov. 6 at Idlewild Park in Burlington, just 11 points behind regional champion Dixie Heights.

  • Race for State

    As fall sports are winding down, cross-country is still remaining.

    Both Grant County High School and Williamstown High School are gearing for the regional meet Nov. 6 at Idlewild Park in Burlington, hoping for a spot in the state meet Nov. 13 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

    Coach Marlon Kinsey had a tough decision to make Nov. 1. He had three girls vying for two spots.

    His decision for the two spots was for the girls to run their home course out in the fields next to Sherman Elementary.

  • Braves end on wrong side of the...

    Senior night in any sport is a night to celebrate the careers of players that are graduating.

    For the seniors on the Grant County High School football team, the game was one to forget, as the Braves dropped to 2-7, losing 47-6 to Jeffersontown on a cool Oct. 22 evening.

    “Everyone hates to see their team lose, especially senior night, but we knew going in that it was a tough game,” coach Mike Davis said.

    Davis said, however, that there was more to take away from the game than just a loss.
