Bucks snap 6-game skid, beat Knicks 101-98Submitted: 02/03/2014
Story By Associated Press

MILWAUKEE - Brandon Knight made a 3-pointer with 1.4 seconds left and finished with 25
points, and the Milwaukee Bucks snapped a six-game losing streak with a 101-98
victory Monday night over the New York Knicks.

Knight took a couple dribbles, then quickly fired his 3 from the wing with
Raymond Felton leaping into the air. Felton turned in disbelief as Knight rushed
down the other end to celebrate.

The Knicks had one last chance, though Carmelo Anthony misfired on a deep 3. He
finished with 36 points.


New York rallied from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter, but ended up
falling to the worst team in the NBA.

Khris Middleton added 19 points and a season-high five 3s for Milwaukee, which
also snapped a seven-game skid to New York.

SUGAR CAMP - On Friday, we will officially call Donald Trump the President of the United States.

One Sugar Camp bar owner has been counting down the days on a sign outside his bar.

"We had people stopping by and taking pictures and coming in and giving me a thumbs up," says Gator's Landing owner, Frank Pirolo.

Pirolo has owned the bar for 12 years and has lived in the Northwoods for 18 years.

"People have been noticing my Obama countdown sign," Pirolo said. "I been doing that since there was 89 days to go. Haven't missed a day."

Pirolo is excited to see President Elect Donald Trump take office. He takes on a straightforwardness not unlike the man he voted for.

"I'm kind of outspoken," Pirolo said. "I've been kind of referred to as the Archie Bunker of Sugar Camp."

He also has a sign outside of his bar that advertises his burgers, but people likely flock to his bar because he's frank.

"I see something on the news that bothers me, I'll come up with a quip and maybe put it out there," Pirolo says.

But that doesn't discourage him.

"I see good things going to happen," Pirolo said. "A lot of people say he's arrogant. My wife and I for the first time in 44 years have agreed on a political person."
