February 19, 2013

    The action was swift and rugged — sort of — as K105's traveling basketball team defeated the Adams County Crime Fighters in the Bellmont gym on Monday night.
    A nice-sized crowed turned out to see the fun and games.
    No one was able to win the $15,000 at halftime, but Sam Smitley got a head rub from Casey the Cash Cow and in the end everyone said "congrats" before heading home.
    Proceeds went to the local Crime Stoppers organization.
