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

1 week 4 days ago

On Saturday, September 6, our family lost a dear friend to a car accident. Listeners know her as Lexi the Impulse Puppy. It surprised us a bit just how much the loss struck us--a tribute to just how much that dog loved us--and just how much we loved that dog. Dogs are not the same as people, but they certainly tap into the very best of us.
