Seth Hanchey was running to beat the odds — again.
Hanchey, 19, was one of 180 competitors in Saturday’s Team Seth Foundation 5K Run/Walk along with Choudrant High School sophomore Brandon Smith, 15, who easily outdistanced the competition with a first-time time of 19:14.

Davis, OK.jpg

Knowing Phil Robertson as long as I have, I can assure you he’s not going to lose any sleep over the latest “controversy” involving a late night talk show and his thriving business of making duck calls.
