    I remember my aunt having the most beautiful Christmas tree ever.

  • Thorobreds tame the Panthers 86-56 Tuesday night

    After a bit of a slow start, the Harrison County Thorobreds turned up the defense and ran off with a 30-point win at Augusta. 

    The 8-5 Breds trailed for much of the first period before superior athletic ability allowed them to run off seven straight to end the period and take an 18-11. 

    Malcolm Thomas scored the final points in this period with a three, a lay in and a put back to give his team the lead.
