Written by David Green.

Jacob Bovee bid high school sports one final goodbye Friday night, and he did it in a big way.

The 2008 Morenci graduate scored 25 points for the Home team in the annual Lenawee County All-Star game for recent graduates.

The Home team posted a 105-92 victory.

Bovee was edged by Madison’s Vince Beekel for scoring honors. Beekel finished with 26 points and was named Most Valuable Player by Madison coach Jeff Webster who led the Home team.

Bovee notched nine points by intermission, then added 16 in the second half to keep the Home team on top. He connected on his final eight shots of the game.

Bovee hit nine of 13 shots from two-point territory and two for seven from three-point range. Home team players attempted 40 shots from outside the arc and connected on 13. The Away team connected on six of 33.

Bovee intends to play football and basketball at Adrian College.

    ART PARK—A design created by Poggemeyer Design Group shows a “pocket art park” in the green space south of the State Line Observer building. The proposal includes a 12-foot sculpture based on a design created by Morenci sixth grade student Klara Wesley through a school and library collaboration. A wooden band shell is located at the back of the lot. The Observer wall would be covered with a synthetic stucco material. City council members are considering ways to fund the estimated $125,000 project and perhaps tackling construction one step at a time.
