Heflin next test for Eagles

The visitors bleachers were nearly empty at last weeks Jacksonville-Butler game, which the Golden Eagles won easily, 50-16.Don’t expect things to be the same this week however as the Eagles (6-0) will take on Cleburne County (4-1) in a key regional matchup.Both teams are undefeated in regional play with Cleburne County’s only loss coming to Munford the first game of the season.

SHERRY KUGHN: Treating ourselves to better healthcare

I, like many Americans these days, am concerned about the future of health care coverage for my family members, friends, and me.I recently learned that my pharmacy no longer has a contract with my private-pay, Blue Cross/Blue Shield plan. The price of a prescription I need rose 90%. A friend’s son who recently married studied insurance plans available to him and his new bride. There were none for less than $649, a prohibitive cost. They could not apply for Medicaid because of Alabama’s restrictions. Comments (0)
