        First responders score big in charity game

           The scoreboard may have indicated their defeat, but
        the Romulus Police and Fire department players count
        the latest fundraising effort as a big win.
           The public safety personnel, along with a few players
        from the Romulus High School girls' basketball team,
        generated $1,200 from a recent charity basketball game
        to help fund the annual holiday Shop With A Cop pro-
        gram. In addition to the game, the event included a raf-
        fle to become one of several city officials for a day, a
        chance to win a Nintendo Switch and several donated
        gift baskets.
           Opponents of the police and fire teams were players
        from Royalty Empowerment, a program described on
        the group website as an effort to encourage youth to
        excel from poverty and help motivate others to over-
        come obstacles in their environment. The mission of the
        organization is to bridge the gap between law enforce-
        ment in urban and underserved communities, officials
           Explaining the 44-48 score, Romulus police posted an
        explanation of the loss on the department Facebook
           “The first responders gave a valiant effort but lost 44-
        48 to a worthy opponent, (editor's note - the sun was in
