    FORT WAYNE— The Squaws' best chance to nab a win so far in a frustrating season slipped away late in Tuesday night's contest at Blackhawk Christian as four free throws from Mariah Moonen sealed the deal in a 49-43 loss to the Braves in overtime.

Shoveling the sidewalk in front of his 11th Street home in Decatur Tuesday morning, Roop said simply, “I’m tired of it.” Area residents may be able to put their snow shovels away for awhile, with unseasonably warm temperatures and even a little rain in the forecast for later this week.
