    Michael Duncan, the evening's emcee, described Smith as one born to his particular mission. "John W. Smith Jr., tonight's honoree, was born to be a supporter of education," he said.

  • Do you know about "the other high blood pressure?"

    November is Pulmonary Hypertension Awareness Month. Pulmonary Hypertension, or PH, is a simplified name for a complex health problem - continuous high blood pressure in the pulmonary artery in the lungs, resulting in an enlarged heart which can also lose its ability to pump. In the U.S. PH affects an estimated 100,000 people of all ages and ethnic backgrounds.

    * fainting

    * dizziness

    * chronic fatigue

  • 6th Annual Operation Henry County Cares: We have not forgotten

    Since the War in Iraq started, the support has weakened for our soldiers, especially wounded soldiers who are overseas. I know that our great community can do a lot to help in this matter. The Senior Class of 2008 and I would like to invite you to join us in supporting troops who are serving overseas. This is a special year for us because two of the brigades we are supporting are being led by two Henry County graduates and it is only fitting that we begin this year's soldier drive on Veteran's Day. As with years past, we adopt groups and support them for the entire school year.
