Merry Christmas

Everyone remember the reason for the season!

Thanks to everyone for all of your support and encouragement over the last year, even all you Negative Nellies! Believe it or not, we've set several records this week for blog hits and even more than the last two times the Komets won the cup.

I know a lot of people may not read the paper over the next couple of days, but I would encourage you to check out tomorrow's paper. We have one of my favorite all-time stories coming about the son of Kmtshky17 (Mark Shepler) and nephew of Janice. You will be inspired by this little boy and the art captures him perfectly.


That masterpiece photo is by Swikar Patel. This little boy will remind all of you why you are Komets and hockey fans.

Everybody have a great Christmas and say safe! May God bless you.
