When the knock on the noggin is a cause for concern
A girl is furiously dribbling the ball up the court in a middle school girls’ basketball game. A player tries to catch her from behind but instead trips the girl. The girl’s head bounces twice on the floor before coming to rest.

Renewing Farm Tags Benefits 4-H
4-H has an opportunity to raise funds for Madison County and statewide 4-H programs through the Ag Tag Voluntary Donation Program.

Discover new reads online, at the library
Believe it or not, my job as a librarian often leaves me little time to read for pleasure.
Oddly enough, that only increases the pleasure of reading when I do get the chance. Vacations are one of those times, and so last week, I got to catch up on pure reading for fun.
