    The Washington County Community Foundation will be accepting applications for the Jinny Scifres Scholarship. The scholarship is for any individual
    planning to attend a post-secondary accredited institution in the 2010-2011 school year and plans to pursue studies in the medical field. The scholarship payout this year is $800.00. The number and dollar amount of scholarships will be determined by the committee. Preference may be given to non-traditional nursing students who may be returning to school after starting a family or career, as did Jinny.
     After starting a family, Jinny made the tough decision to return to school and study nursing.  After graduation, she began her nursing career at Washington County Memorial Hospital as an Emergency Room Nurse. Jinny's love of nursing eventually lead her to several promotions and back to school once again. She eventually became the Director of Patient Care Services. Jinny died in the fall of 2000, after bravely battling bone cancer. Her family and many friends established this scholarship fund in her memory, to assist others who, like Jinny, return to school to study nursing after starting a family or career.    
    Applications may be picked up at the Washington County Community Foundation office in the Community Learning Center on or after March 17. Application deadline is 3:30 pm April 26. For more information, you may contact Judy Johnson or Lindsey Wade-Swift at 883-7334.

    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.
