Greetings from all the Prairie Plaza folks. We have had Kansas weather again, and about three inches of snow since last news day. It is going to be good weather this week for all the Christmas visitors. My Marion kids are coming Friday, and I get a strawberry-rhubarb pie. That was my choice for a baked desert. Most of us received a fan- tastic laundry basket full of ev- erything imaginable last week from the Comanche County Health Department. Thank you! Some of us have decorated our porches for the holiday, but I kept mine very simple. I didn’t want so much to put away later. I still do a lot of handmade objects, but then I have to find a place to put them.

T-Wolf Boys Best Longhorns South Central High School’s varsity boys basketball team played Hodgeman County High School at Jetmore last Friday night to finish its pre—Christmas basketball. . Winning 53-45, the boys put another win into their season record which now stands at 5- and- 1 . After Friday night’s loss, Hodgeman County’s boys now have a 2-and-3 record. In a high scoring first quar- ter, the Timberwolves scored 20 points in the first period of play, with the Longhorn boys not far behind at 14. Going into the second period of play with a 6-point lead, South Central’s boys saw their oppo- nents cut that lead in half. In a far slower-paced quarter, HCHS scored 10 points while SCHS managed only 7 points. That cut the T-Wolf lead to just three points and put the score at 27- 24 at the end of the first half. In the third quarter, the Tim- berwolves outscored the Long- horns 12-7 to put a little more distance back between them. At the end of the third, the Visiting T-Wolves had an 8-point lead at 39-31. Both teams picked up the pace a bit in the final fi‘arne, each post- ing 14 points and leaving South Central’ s 8—point lead intact. That gave the T-wolves a 53-48 win over the Hodgeman County hosts. Just six boys scored for SCHS, while eight put points on the board for HCHS. High pointer in the game was Longhorn senior Kyle Hayes with 14 points. Only one other Hodgeman County player scored in double digits. That was junior Bryce Harms with l 1 . Tied for top scoring honors on the South Central team were two seniors — Taylon Harris and Cole Lohrding each made 12 points. Lohrding hit three 2- pointers and was 6-for—7 from the line.
