    Providence had a good time Friday night; not only did they win their home game over the visiting North Harrison Cougars 56-35, but they also crowned their 2009-10 Homecoming Queen.
    North Harrison fell behind 5-0 early, but Lincoln Jones and Devin Southard got things on board with four points right after. Alex Edwards and Southard kept the Cougars within 10-8 but Providence scored consecutive baskets and led 14-8.
    North Harrison called a 30 second time out down 14-8, but it didn’t really help.
    Providence led 20-8 after a three and a 3 of 4 free throw stretch right before the 2nd quarter.
    Southard scored a pair of freebies right before the quarter end to give north Harrison a brief respite.
    Edwards and Colin Book scored to get the Cougars within 20-14, but the pioneers pulled out in front again 25-14. Lincoln Jones’ bucket (4:51) was the only scoring the Cougars could muster until Dakota Bosler scored on a pair of free throws with 51 seconds left in the 2nd quarter.

    Stephanie Padgett flashed a wide grin as her name was called for a door prize during intermission of the “Speaking Louder Than Before Tour” Feb. 12 at Graceland Baptist Church in New Albany.
    Padgette's eyes were full of anticipation as “Wally” the host of WAY FM's “Total Access” asked her if she was ready to see what she had won.
    She nodded and out-walked her boyfriend of seven months, Shawn Scott.
    Scott is a Salem resident who had been planning the surprise engagement for about three months.
    He said he initially wanted to do it in front of a room full of women at Northside Christian Church's Christmas Tea event, but didn't want to take the focus off the event.
