Contractor Arrested for Church Copper Theft

A Waterloo contractor has been arrested for allegedly stealing copper from a historic church, according to the Waterloo Cedar Falls Courier. 35 year old Anthony Tucker was hired to renovate a back entrance to Mount Moriah Missionary Baptist Church. Instead he is accused of stripping copper molding and fixtures from the 111 year old church. This included the copper ring encircling the base of the church’s iconic octagonal dome. Two copper panels were also taken from inside the church and copper pipes were cut from the boiler room. Tucker was found to have turned in 608 pounds of copper to Alter Metal Recycling in May. He was paid just over $2,000 for the haul. The church renovation is currently at a standstill as construction permits were never taken out and the copper elements cannot be replaced. The church, which was built in 1911, is on the National Register of Historic Places, although in 2017 it was named one of the most endangered buildings by Preservation Iowa.

Report: Milwaukee Bucks Sign AJ Green to Two-Way Deal

Jon Horst and the Milwaukee Bucks continue to do post-draft work to fill out the fringes of their roster, signing Northern Iowa’s AJ Green to a two-way contract, per Woj. The four-year player at Northern Iowa averaged 18.8 points per game on 38.8% shooting from deep (7.7 attempts). That’s his primary skill at this point, a sniper who stands 6’5”. I couldn’t find him listed on the top 100 for either ESPN or The Athletic, but I’d imagine the Bucks just wanted a shooter in a two-way slot that they’ll bring to Summer League. He was named the Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Year twice, and apparently was considering transferring to Duke if he hadn’t kept his name in the draft this year. That makes me a bit more intrigued, but in general we know how these two-way deals go.
