Thursday, Oak Hill Academy hit the road for their second away game of the season and the final game of the two-game series between Leake Academy in Madden.
Eyes grew big in the early part of last week when an area broadcast news agency released a report alleging that a West Point police officer attempted suicide on East Main Street in West Point, but West Point Police Chief Tim Brinkley said almost the entire television report is false.
In Sunday's print version of the Daily Times Leader Brinkley addresses the incident as well as what was reported by the television media earlier this week.

A few weeks back, we discussed how thousands of jobs, mostly those in the areas of defense and military, would be cut as of March 1 if no deal was reached to avoid the cuts.
Last Friday, these cuts went into effect and were signed into law by our President. Nearly $1.2 trillion dollars of cuts----over 750,000 jobs----all cut over night. Not only were defense employees, budgets, and the military cut back, but so also were thousands of dollars in grant programs, which will affect many of our colleges and universities across the nation.
The Green Wave are coming off of a 7-6 win over rival Starkville Tuesday night. Senior Freddie Reed hit a RBI single giving West Point the lead in the bottom of the sixth, and Tony Reese finished off the game on the mound to secure the victory. The Wave currently hold a 3-1 record on the season and hope to better their record against Columbus this evening.
