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.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

It came as a shock to a lot of people to find out that the contract for the Union license office, which has been operated by the Union Chamber of Commerce since the 1970's, was being turned over to a for-profit company based out of Jefferson City.

What happened? It's a classic case of two all-too-common phenomena in the world of government--unintended consequences and the revolving door.
