SOUTH WHITLEY â€” There are plenty of teams that would be disappointed with a 24-point loss.
Whitko Girls Head Coach Brandon Bradley, on the other hand, is content with the way the team played against a tough Elkhart Memorial Saturday.
Though the 52-28 loss may appear bad, the Lady Wildcats lost to the Lady Chargers by 46 points last season (79-33).
Bradley is happy with the teamâ€™s effort.
â€śThatâ€™s the absolute best they couldâ€™ve played,â€ť Bradley said.
The day-after-Thanksgiving "Black Friday" marketing push by Whitley County-area businesses begins in earnest Tuesday and Wednesday in The Post & Mail newspaper.
A total of 19 pre-printed advertising supplements â€“ including the hyper-local Thanksgiving Gift Guide â€“ will be inserted in the Tuesday and Wednesday Post & Mail.
Additionally, local advertising bargains will appear throughout the news pages of both publications.
Responding to local advertising will boost your family's budget and get your holiday shopping off on the right foot, local experts agree.
INDIANAPOLIS â€“ The retail cost of menu items for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner including turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie and all the usual trimmings increased by nearly 8 percent this year, according to an informal survey of grocery store prices conducted by Indiana Farm Bureau.
FORT WAYNE â€” A contingent made up of military veterans and Toys For Tots officials from Whitley County met last week at the Allen County Library to air a show on Access 21.
Locally, the program has been around nearly 20 years.
Last year, the Whitley County Toys For Tots program helped almost 600 children who otherwise, according to the press release, â€śwould not have had a Christmas.â€ť
The show recorded by the local group will air at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 25 on Comcast 57 and Frontier 27, and again on Nov. 28 on those same channels.
GOSHEN â€” On the heels of the teamâ€™s first win, the Lady Eagles came into their first Northeast Corner Conference hoping to start out on top.
But Fairfieldâ€™s pressure was too much for Churubusco, forcing a 44-23 loss.
Churubusco didnâ€™t score until 4:30 ran off the clock in the first quarter with a set of free throws by Haleigh Gross.
â€™Buscoâ€™s scorers became more diverse in the second quarter, with baskets by Lacey Pulley, Heather Monk, Morgan Young and another pair of free throws by Gross.
Gross was 6-for-7 from the stripe in the first half.
