    The long layoff did not seem to affect the Lady Camels of Campbell County Monday night as they breezed to an 85-34 win over the Harrison County Fillies, in Alexandria.
    The Fillies got off to a slow start, falling behind 9-0, before 8th grader Katelin Ecklar scored on a rebound of her own missed shot. After the Ecklar basket Campbell County took advantage of turnovers and missed shots to score 30 unanswered points to put the game away in the first half.

    Super Bowl No. 50 is set with the No. 1 seed in the AFC playing the No. 1 seed in the NFC.  
    The question in my mind is will it be worth watching? I am not one that watches the game for the halftime show or the commercials.  
    In fact, I cannot tell you what the halftime show is this year nor do I really care.  I am pretty sure that it isn’t the Beatles or Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons so I probably will not watch it. That will be my allotted time for celery and carrot sticks with some water maybe with lemon.
