Hutchins’ birthday wish to feed the hungry in Clay County

January 23, 2013

If Elliott Hutchins gets his birthday wish, there will be a lot of hungry people fed in Clay County from now until March.
The Church Hill Elementary First Grade student will turn 7 on February 8, and he recently told his mother, Felecia Finley, something a lot of parents do not hear.
“He told me he did not want any birthday presents this year,” Finley said. “He wants people to donate canned goods for the hungry instead.”
Hutchins says that his inspiration came from commercials he saw on the Disney Channel.

Health Science classes prep students for healthcare careers

January 23, 2013

Demontra Ewing dreams of being a radiologist one day.
Besides playing basketball for West Point High School, Shamaya Lyles has her sights set on being an OBGYN.
Just about everyone in Darlene Blaylock’s freshman Health Science class at the West Point School District’s Career and Technology Center wants to enter the healthcare industry in one capacity or another.
Who can blame them?
A degree in radiology alone can fetch six figures at the right healthcare facility. Doctors stand to make even better money over the course of a lifetime.

Connecting the deficits

January 22, 2013

A new study was released this week that may very well explain what is going on in Washington D.C.
Using this study, a quick diagnosis of Congress, with a heavy dose of medication could turn the tide for the American people and the U.S. economy.
The Kaiser Permanente Southern California Medical Group in Pasadena says that a study conducted over the last decade reveals a 25 percent jump in the diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivty Disorder.
I believe that Washington, as a whole, has ADHD.

January 22, 2013

Happy New Year everyone! Since it’s January, this is the time that I typically start talking about setting goals for the year: all the things you want to do, be, have in 2013. While I would still encourage you to set do, be, have goals and I do every year myself, this year we will take a different approach by looking at the most important area of our lives: personal relationships.

January 22, 2013

Governor Phil Bryant gave his “State of the State” address yesterday; giving me reason to think what the state of Mississippi State basketball is? From a distance, one could say that this 2012-2013 season could possibly be the worst year of basketball Mississippi State (MSU, State) could possibly have.
