    Latin America Discipleship & Outreach (LADO) is celebrating its first annual benefit and silent auction on Saturday, April 25 at the Navilleton Activity Center in Floyds Knobs, Indiana. LADO is a nonprofit organization focusing its efforts on reaching out to displaced children and families in Colombia, South America. Edgar and Julie (Kiesler) Zuluaga, missionaries supported by LADO, have been working in Villa Katy, Colombia for three years. Because of violence and political turmoil, these families were forced to leave their homes, everything they owned, and flee to safety.  LADO’s dream is to restore them, bringing a message of hope, love, and a future.
    LADO wishes to educate and equip these adults with tools to help them sustain their families and provide them a better way of life. They want to buy a farm and build a multi-purpose ministry center in order to provide jobs, as well as skills training. Please join LADO for an awesome evening of fellowship and encouragement.
    Dinner tickets are on sale for $15.00/adults, $7.50/children 6-12, and 5/under are free. Doors open at 5 p.m. for the beginning of the silent auction and dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m. To purchase tickets, please call (502) 713-6005.

Borden wins Class 1A Sectional Final at Henryville; 63-40 PDF Print E-mail

    The eventual outcome of the Class 1A Sectional final at Henryville Saturday night ended up a lot differently than it started. Borden (18-5) won an impressive 63-40 decision over fellow southern Athletic Conference member New Washington (14-11).
    New Washington got off to a 3-0 start, after Borden had a turnover and a missed shot at the start.
    Consecutive baskets by Chris Beam and Michael Chester gave Borden a 4-3 lead, and New Washington traveled on the next possession. The Mustangs tied the game at 6-6 on a Devin Freels three point goal.
    After a Borden deuce, Michael Chester hit a trey for the Braves (2:34), and Lee Kirchgessner hit a trey at 1:27 to run the Borden advantage to 14-8.
    New Washington outscored the Braves 5-2 in the final minute of the 1st quarter, and Borden led 16-13 heading into the 2nd period.
    The Braves went on a 5-0 run at the start of the 2nd quarter, forcing a 30 second time out by the Mustangs. First, Borden’s Dalton Wagoner hit an old fashioned three point play, and seconds after a traveling call against New Washington, Beam hit a bucket to give Borden a 21-13 lead headed into the time out.
    Both teams then proceeded to score, but it was still a 5-4 margin in favor of the Braves, and in not making up any ground, New Washington called another 30 second time out with 2:56 in the half, and down 26-17.
    The answer from Borden was to go on a 6-0 run, with buckets from three different players. Their lead was 32-17 by the end of the half.
