  • When should a youth begin strength training?

    Sports these days have become a year-round endeavor.  
    There is more and more pressure for our children to be the best.  This often means starting organized sports at the age of three or younger and a push to “specialize” or choose a single sport at a young age.  
    As a pediatrician I get a variety of questions from parents on the best way to help children master skills, build strength and prevent injuries in sports. This discussion often leads to the question “When can my child start lifting weights?”

  • A harvest of another kind

    One potential attraction to Saturday’s Henry County Harvest Showcase includes the haircut and beard trim that Henry County Help Center Director Joe Durbin will submit to at 2 p.m. as part of a successful fundraising campaign for the non-profit food pantry. Organizers set goals of trimming Durbin’s full beard if donors gave $5,000 and cutting his long hair if donors came up with another $5,000. Both goals have been surpassed. As a bonus, Help Center supporter Charles Clark has volunteered for a shave and a haircut at the showcase, too.
