Area livestock shows are b-a-a-a-a-ck

January 13, 2011

A little cold weather wasn't about to stop this hardy group of future farmers.

Despite frigid temperatures, the annual Howard County Junior Livestock Show began its annual run Wednesday at the county fair barns.

The show, which runs through Saturday, features 122 exhibitors showing 311 entries, a decrease of 84 animals from last year's show, officials said.

The most probable cause for the decrease, they said, was the economy. It costs several hundred dollars to care for and prepare an animal for livestock show presentation.

Casual cooking with Kris

January 13, 2011

Welcoming readers to my world where I enjoy simple, sometimes quick, but always delicious meals.

This week's recipe comes from the oh-I-haven't-had-a-chance-to-get-to-the-store section. I was pantry searching and revving up that thing called a thinking cap, which wore me out. I had no meat thawed out and takeout budget was empty, so after surveying the damage and lack of choices I discovered a twist on an old dish.

January 12, 2011

FORSAN — Forsan girls’ basketball coach Robert Hillger didn’t have much explanation for Tuesday’s 44-41 loss to Stanton at home.

He said Stanton beat Forsan fair and square.

“I couldn’t figure out our identity Tuesday. At the beginning of the game, really the first half, we’re pushing and running and they’re making shots and we’re not. We like to push and run and we were down five (at the half) anyway, so I was like ‘Alright, we’re going to slow down the pace of the game. We’re going to dictate what we want to do and not let them dictate what we want to do.”
