Community members have come together to set up a Cadence Bank account to collect donations for the medical care of 18-year-old Henry Brown.
Brown, of West Point, has been in the intensive care facility of the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) Medical Center for the last three weeks following a surgical procedure to improve his breathing capabilities due to complications from Down syndrome.
His mother, Leann Brown, said he started using an oxygen tank in 2009, and in the intervening years he came to require more and more oxygen.

The West Point School District is on the lookout for community members willing to volunteer some time with students in need of mentoring.
WPSD Community Relations Director Nancy Young said the school district wants someone to spend 30 minutes per week with students.
“We need our mentors to be consistent with students,” Young said. “The worst thing we can do is introduce another adult into a child’s life who won’t be there for them.”
She said the mentoring program was for students of all ages who are in need of a little extra attention.

BALDWYN — The Baldwyn Lady Bearcats overcame two second-half deficits to down the West Point Lady Wave, 55-47, Saturday at the Doc Vandiver Classic at Baldwyn High School.
“We didn’t execute at the end of the night,” Lady Wave Head Coach Dashmond Daniel said. “We never got into our press offense. Baldwyn’s full-court man threw our girls off on the court. I accept the effort. We just kind of fell apart midway through the second half.”
