  • Mitchell brothers have record setting seasons

    Brandon Mitchell finished his high school football career as one of the biggest record holders in Warrior history. With two more records added to the five he had last year, Mitchell now holds seven EHS football records.

    Not to be outdone, Justin, his younger brother, set nine records this year. That’s 16 records between the brothers.

    That begs the question: Are the Mitchell brothers the most accomplished family members in team history? It would be hard to imagine any other siblings having more.

  • Thanksgiving was a sports Feast Week indeed

  • The Matter of Two Thanksgivings

     

    By Candy Clarke

    Two Thanksgivings? Are you wondering if the government decided we need to celebrate life with two official Thanksgiving holidays? No, they haven’t, but maybe that might not be such a bad idea. Two thanksgiving dinners would certainly prove beneficial to the grocery industry.

  • Reach out and Read with your doctor’s office

    Ouch!  My big toe is red and hurts!  It was fine last night, but now it is very painful.  This description could fit an infection or an injury to the toe, but it is also the classic presentation of gout.  Gout is a painful condition caused by high levels of uric acid that cause urate crystals to form.
