Real Men Wear Pink For Breast Cancer Awareness Month

The month of October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and a local resident is doing his part by wearing pink.
Jon Cross, President and CEO of the Hardin County Chamber and Business Alliance, said he is one of only 12 men in Lima and Kenton to be invited to participate in the Real Men Wear Pink campaign, "We're basically out raising funds in support of breast cancer awareness, and I certainly said yes to it for several reasons, but I said yes for the most important reason, I want to make sure the money that we raise can really help some of our friends locally."

Kenton Looking to Go 3 and 3 at Shawnee Tonight

The Kenton Wildcats try to make it back-to-back victories tonight when they travel to Shawnee. 
A win tonight for the Wildcats would give Kenton consecutive victory for the first time in 2016 and would bring their record to the .500 mark for the first time this season. Kenton is 2 and 3 overall, including 2 and 2 in the Western Buckeye League, and needs a victory over Shawnee this evening to build some momentum before facing a daunting October schedule.
The Indians are 1 and 4 overall, including 1 and 3 in the Western Buckeye League. Kenton has dominated the rivalry in recent years. The Cats have won seven straight against the Indians, with Shawnee's last victory over Kenton coming in 2008.
WKTN will have all the action live tonight from Shawnee Stadium in Lima. The pregame show will start at 6:40 p.m., with kickoff set for 7 p.m.
In other action tonight around the county, Hardin Northern travels to Ridgemont; Upper Scioto Valley visits Perry; Ada entertains Crestview; and Riverdale hosts Cory-Rawson.
