    Coach Larry Kendall said in his post game interview that in Monday’s practice the team was committed to trying to run the offense.  
    It worked so well that the Breds picked up their second win of the season by cruising past Bourbon County, Tuesday night on the Colonels’ floor.  
    The offensive explosion for the Breds came courtesy of good ball movement, players moving without the ball and red hot shooting in the opening period.

    “You can tell I like Christmas,” Juanita Jones said, shortly after an interview with her began.
    Jones makes no bones about it...she loves the holiday season and particularly loves to decorate both the inside and outside of her home, with all things Christmas.
    No fewer than 30-40 different outside decorations are in place, along with hundreds of feet of lights around her house, fencing and trees.
