    Then later that night, the Musketeers will square off against county rival Salem.
    In addition to the basketball action, all the teams involved will be helping to raise money for a good cause as it will be Coaches vs. Cancer and Breast Cancer Awareness Night.
    Everyone is encouraged to wear pink and hats will be passed through the crowd to collect money for cancer research.
    Prior to the Salem-Eastern boys' game, the 13th annual Bill Cope Chili Supper will also take place. The meal will be served beginning at 4:30 and will include chili, a peanut butter sandwich or hot dog, crackers, drinks and desert for $4.75.
    A la carte items will also be available for purchase.
    Chili supper organizer Bobbi Cope said over the years the event has been a huge success.
    “I am pretty sure that we have given over $13,000 in scholarship money over the years,” she said. “This is a wonderful way to remember my husband and his generous and loving spirit.”
    The Eastern High School Athletic Booster Club is also hosting a silent auction. The top item is a Lebron James autographed basketball as well as other signed balls.

    It is said where a garden is planted, love grows. And even in the dead of winter, the new Memory Garden, constructed and completed by the youth at BRS’ Summit View Youth Shelter is already blooming with love. The Garden, located at the Harrison Township Fire Department on Old Hwy 135 in Corydon, is dedicated to the memory of all abused, neglected and orphaned children. The project was made possible through a grant from the Community Foundation of Southern Indiana and the Youth Philanthropy Council in 2009. The youth chose the theme in hopes the Memory Garden (pictured to the right) will continue to remind us of the need to pray for and reach out to all children who are suffering everyday through neglect and abuse.
    Along with designing, purchasing the flowers and figurines and building the garden, the youth also presented the Harrison Township Firemen with tokens of appreciation for their dedication and service to the community. Concrete figurines of a fireman saving a young child, a red fire hydrant and a Fireman’s Bench along with a wind chime featuring the Fireman’s symbol were presented to Fireman J. McKim in honor of the firemen’s service. The fireman figurine was painted by the youth as well, complete with the Harrison Township badge on the sleeve and fireman’s hat.

    Coffee Crossing on Charlestown Road in New Albany will host a Christian music show on Saturday from 8-11 p.m.
    The group performing will be Brady Enders and The Delicate.
    Enders has been singing all his life, but he picked up the guitar six years and has been playing music ever since.
    He said his love for music started at an early age while he and his brother went to sleep to the sound of their father singing and softly strumming the strings.
    “Each string presented a peaceful melancholy,” he said.
    When they weren't singing Enders' father would play Enya, as well as others.
    “I began to truly envelop myself in my music and bring only truth, with great conviction,” Enders said.
    He went on to study musical composition at Indiana University Southeast and he has composed more than 100 songs between the ages of 16-20.
    “I write and record all of my own music, and love to glorify God in every sentence and phrase before me,” Enders said.  
    Admission to Saturday's show is free. Those attending are encouraged to arrive early as seating is limited.

Borden Loses To Austin PDF Print E-mail

    Borden came out with a very different game plan in a loss to Austin Friday night. Borden attempted to take a much stronger Austin team out of their game, and for the first half it worked. But the second half was much different as Borden lost 56 to 31.
    Austin won the tip and with the first possession went to Raichel in the corner for three. It would be the only three-point shot made in the half.
When Borden came back down it was obvious something was different. Borden worked the ball around the perimeter and slowed the game way down. Borden controlled the ball for three-fourths of the first half. In doing so they kept Austin from establishing a game plan they are accustom to.
    Borden was so intent on controlling the ball they took very few shots in the first quarter. By Borden holding the ball such a high percentage of the time Austin had few opportunities to shoot. The score was only Austin 7 - Borden 1 at the end of the first quarter.
