PHOTO: No shovel needed

A week ago, the Pine Knot used a photo to highlight the earliest teardown of the Pinehurst Park ice rink on Feb. 13. Later the same week, we found a group of youngsters playing basketball in the park on Feb. 17, in subfreezing temperatures. It was 28 degrees at around 9 p.m., when the boys were playing pickup basketball - maybe the earliest day in a year in which we've seen ballers on the basketball courts.
