  • As a child, Christmastime was always a magical time. It was the time of year when the weather outside became cooler and boxes of ornaments and decorations would make their yearly appearance from storage. Candies, like fudge, cookies, Chex Mix, or “doo-dads” as we called them, buckeye balls and that white peanut butter candy that no one could remember the name of was made and quickly eaten, however, some was always saved for that jolly guy who slid down the chimney.

    Ranch hand Peter Evsich, 55, sat in his pickup truck smoking a cigarette Sunday afternoon while watching over the smoldering ruins of a horse barn, with 23 dead horses somewhere under the barn’s collapsed metal roof.
    The Thoroughbreds were part of a group housed in a barn at the Mercury Equine Center off Russell Cave Road. The fire started just after midnight and may have been due to lightning or an electrical issue, said owner Eric Reed.
