New Bill Helps Students With Asthma

October 1, 2010

Students across Mississippi suffering with asthma now have the right to self-administer their asthma and anaphylaxis medications while at school or at any school-related function, with the passage of Mississippi Senate Bill 2393.
The bill, signed by Governor Haley Barbour earlier this year, is designed to improve the health of students and ensure that all students with asthma breathe easier, helping them be more alert and perform better academically.

October 1, 2010

Chambless says Green Wave’s best ball may be yet to come in team’s second half

Five games are down for the West Point Green Wave (4-1; 1-0), and there are six more to go in the 2010 regular season.
The first half of the season has been eventful, to say the least, for head coach Chris Chambless, his staff and his players.
For many teams, it’s easy to cast off the first few games of the season as less important than the latter half. After all, conference play usually doesn’t come around until about week four or five.
That’s not the case for the 2010 Green Wave. That’s not the case at all.

Tonight’s non-league battle will feature two teams looking to extend two-game winning streaks to three.
Lamar is coming off a pair of wins against Heritage and Canton. The latter one was a 48-13 blowout of the Panthers.
Coach Mac Barnes’ team will come in, featuring a roster that has a good bit more depth than Oak Hill’s.
