Howard County budget grows reserve amounts

Gebhardt to judge juvenile cases in 14th Judicial Circuit Courts
I wanted to let the citizenry of the 14th Judicial Circuit (Howard and Randolph counties) know that there have been some changes made by the State of Missouri which will affect the juvenile court system statewide.
Currently I handle a majority of the juvenile cases in our circuit and I also oversee the administration of the juvenile office, which includes yearly budget preparation and the employment and supervision of staff. The Missouri Supreme Court has recently adopted a new rule which requires that the job of hearing and adjudicating the juvenile cases be separated from day to day administrative responsibilities. In other words, no judge in the state can wear both hats.

Falcons thrive in fourth quarter, find late surge on offense to beat Santa Fe
It wasn’t quite the unlikely comeback Fayette had pulled out of its pocket a time or two earlier this season, but Saturday’s third-place win at the Slater Wildcat Classic was just as impressive.
The Falcons trailed Santa Fe entering the fourth quarter by just two points, but they found a much-needed outpouring of points in the final eight minutes to beat the Chiefs 68-65. Third place is Fayette’s best finish in this tournament since winning the title during the 2010-11 season.

Glasgow boys unable to contain pesky Gremlins in title game
The Glasgow boys basketball team had a Slater Wildcat Classic championship in its sights, but a 79-second stretch of the fourth quarter changed the course of the game.
The Gremlins overcame a four-point deficit early in the fourth quarter, using a 13-3 run to push past Glasgow to win 61-53. Sacred Heart claimed its second-straight Slater Wildcat Classic.



Lady Jackets run out of steam against Santa Fe

Lady Jackets run out of steam against Santa Fe
Glasgow’s start to the girls championship game of the Slater Wildcat Classic was less than ideal.
The Lady Jackets committed 12 turnovers in the first quarter. They took only four shot attempts in the opening period, and one of them was a half-court heave at the buzzer. To make matters worse, early foul trouble was already becoming an issue.
And yet, Glasgow found itself within a point of top-seeded Santa Fe with just over two minutes to play in the fourth quarter. However, the Lady Chiefs would end the game on a 12-0 run, winning the title by a score of 45-32.

The New Franklin boys basketball team went nearly 10 years without winning a tournament championship, both in the regular season and in the postseason. Now the Bulldogs have won a pair of tournaments in the month of January alone.
In a rematch of the New Franklin Tournament championship game held earlier in January, the Bulldogs defeated Westran 61-54 on Saturday night to win their first title at the Sturgeon Tournament.
