Local High School Basketball-Tuesday, February 5

Boys...

Borgia's Jordan Miller drained ten three pointers carrying the Knights to a 51-49 triple overtime victory over the St. Dominic Crusaders. Miller's 34-point performance was amazing especially when you consider that he was still feeling the effects of the flu which kept him out of action the previous night. Casey Kuchem hit the game winner with four-seconds left in the third overtime as Borgia improved to 15-8 overall and 5-2 in the AAA Conference. Michael Schneider scored 17 for the Crusaders, now 12-6 and 2-3. The Borgia Freshmen and JV teams also won.

Owensville and Union are both 0-4.

"No Justice, No Peace"

Certainly, there was no peace on the streets of Ferguson on the night the grand jury announced it would not indict police officer Darren Wilson for the shooting of Michael Brown.

The images of a city burning were disturbing, saddening and sickening. Every business torched leaves in its wake families who have lost their source of income, and a community that will find it that much harder to rebuild.
