Spotlights doing one-act plays this weekend
SPENCER — On Friday, Feb. 10 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 12 at 2
p.m. the Spotlights group at David Prouty High School will be per-
forming two one-act plays at the school.
“Box Office” is a comedy that involves a wide range of crazy char-
acters who demonstrate more drama in the lobby than there is on
stage. The second selection is “Match (dot) Comedy” by Bradley
Haywood. In this entertaining performance a young man proposes
to his girlfriend at a fancy restaurant but immediately gets cold feet
and, using his iPod, posts an advertisement on a dating site. An
array of female singles arrives at the restaurant, where Trevor sits
with his new fiancé, and the restaurant transforms to a speed dat-
ing introduction hall.
Tickets will be sold at the door, and the entry cost is $5. Desserts
and beverages can be purchased at additional cost and will be
served in a café style atmosphere. Come support the arts and enjoy
a fun night of comedy .
The school is also looking for a few adult volunteers to help with
makeup, tickets and food sales. If interested, please email Karen
Rubino at email@example.com.

Powerful first half pushes Pioneers past Panthers
SPENCER — The Southbridge
girls’ basketball team took a com-
manding 25-9 lead into the halftime
break against David Prouty and
then held on late in the Jan. 31 con-
test, escaping with a 46-33 win.
Tanaisha Espino led the Pioneers
with 15 points and 9 rebounds,
while twin sister Tanishia added 13
points. Elyse Pena and Ariana
Rivas did the bulk of their damage
for Southbridge on the boards, as
each player grabbed 10 rebounds.
Hayley Chesson scored a team-high
14 points for the Panthers, while
Erin Gaudette (8 points, 16
rebounds) and Sam Dacey (7 points)
also chipped in.
Tanaisha Espino caught fire in
the first half — netting 10 of her
points in the first two quarters — to
help give her team a 16-point lead at
But Chesson heated up in the sec-
ond half, scoring 9 points after
intermission, and Prouty got with-
in 10 points a few times in the
fourth quarter. The Pioneers pulled
away late, though, to improve to 8-7
on the season. The Panthers are
still in search of their first victory
of the season.

A well-established advertising
plan can mean the difference
between RED and BLACK
for your business.
We sometimes hear “I don’t need
to advertise locally, they know I’m

from the truth.
We all know Coke™ & Pepsi™
products are out there, but they
continue to advertise... why?
Unless you’ve branded yourself as
the supplier or service provider for
your type of business, when your
service or product is needed, you
may be overlooked.
Ever hear of the expression, “out
of sight, out of mind?” If you open a
new business, would you hang your
