It's only the very 1st day of a brand new year & already, there are some fun events scheduled here in our Golden Triangle. For starters, the Knights of Columbus will be putting on their annual free throw contest this Thursday. The frolicking free throw action gets underway at 3:30 down at the Utterback Middle School Gym in Conrad. If you're a student, ages 10 to 14, the Utterback Middle School is THE place to be on Thursday afternoon. Throw one in the hoop for me...I'm the Puffman.
