No Region V title? No problem.
Despite falling in the finals of the Region V men's basketball tournament this past weekend, the Howard College Hawks received an at-large bid to compete in the upcoming National Junior College Athletic Association national championship tournament.
Howard (28-5) is seeded 13th in the 24-team field and will begin play at 2 p.m. Monday against 20th-seeded East Mississippi (20-7). All tournament games will be at Hutchinson, Kan.
Local fire officials say the number of wildfires this year has been down compared to years past, and with spring just around the corner, the Crossroads area could enjoy a rather peaceful season to come.
â€śIt's actually pretty surprising,â€ť Howard County Volunteer Fire Chief Tommy Sullivan said. â€śLast year at this time, was a pretty slow year for us. However, this year we're seeing even fewer fires. The average right now is about one wildfire per week, which is pretty amazing.â€ť
