Lady Panthers thump Lady Pioneers, 45-15
The rematch went much like the initial meeting between county rivals.

Oblong and Palestine-Hutsonville's girls' basketball teams met for the second time this season and the outcome Monday night (Jan. 14) was very similar to their first meeting.

The Lady Panthers jumped out to a big lead early and cruised to a 45-15 win over the Lady Pioneers in their opening round game of the Little Okaw Valley Conference Southeast Division Tournament at Martinsville.

It was the fifth straight win for the third-seeded Lady Panthers, while the sixth-seeded Lady Pioneers are still looking for their first victory of the season.

Hints shared for a long, successful marriage
I am a resident of Crawford County. I have a bachelor's degree in psychology and am currently working on a master of science degree in counseling at Indiana State University.

I care about mental health issues, which is why I wanted to share some thoughts from a couple - my parents, Clint and Micky Batcheller, who have beaten the odds and will be celebrating 50 years of marriage this year.
