Last week’s deep winter freeze helped to put the Red Boiling Springs High School Friday night basketball action on ice, at least the December 17th games that were scheduled against Pleasant View Christian. This game is expected to be made up sometime in January 2011.


Everyone usually wishes to see a white Christmas, and if those dreams do come true, the Macon County Chronicle hopes that the players, coaches, and every fan travelling to support their favorite basketball teams in the upcoming holiday tournaments, have a very safe journey. Good luck RBS and MCHS!
