    The Harrison County Thorobreds lost in the last seconds to Nicholas County 61-60 as senior guard Trent Letcher made two free throws to notch the victory for the 3-2 Bluejackets.  
    Sophomore Blake Price had put the Breds on top in the seesaw affair but Letcher was fouled to put him on the line.  Quenton Turley’s foul also disqualified him with five fouls so after Letcher’s made free throws the Breds were seemingly rudderless on their last possession.

    Brisk, but not too cold, it can be invigorating for animals and people alike.  
    The sheep and the big dogs seem to prefer it, in fact.  The playful frolicking is proof. The clear blue sky on a chilly winter day can be even more beautiful with a little winter plant interest.
