  • Make regular blood donation a New Year’s resolution

    With the beginning of a new year comes a fresh start. New Year’s resolutions are often made to form good habits and reach new goals. This New Year’s, the American Red Cross encourages people to resolve to help patients in need through regular blood donations.

    As the winter season continues, blood donations are especially needed.

    Donations typically decline this time of year, as many regular donors are impacted by inclement weather and seasonal illnesses.

  • South Oldham rolls past Atherton in Henry County opener.

    Opening the Henry County Invitiational Tournament against Atherton Dec. 27, the South Oldham Dragons made short work of the Rebels, jumping out to a 21-8 lead and never looking back.

    "We didn't have a good warm up so we were kind of worried that we would kind of come out flat," South coach Steve Simpson said. "Well, we came out okay but then they kind of tied it up from there. The rest of the quarter we went on a good run. I was pretty pleased with our start. From that point on, we kind of treaded water but all wins are good wins."
