Today, the Athens City Schools Superintendent will announce plans to upgrade and improve the district's schools.
Every week, a group in the Shoals helps disabled veterans get to the doctor. The group is now asking for help to keep their program on track.
Three years ago, the Shoals chapter of the Disabled American Veterans raised money to purchase a van to help fellow veterans get the medical care they need.
Nearly 36 months and 185,000 miles later, this group has helped more than 2,000 disabled veterans receive care at Birmingham's Veterans Hospital.
Vietnam veterans Dan Pounders and Mark Moore organize the shuttles.
They said they are running short on drivers and need the community's help make these trips possible.
They are asking for a little assistance to help enrich the lives of those who once fought for our country.
Volunteering is easy. Call the Shoals chapter at 256-381-8229. Any and all volunteers are welcome.
