HUNTINGTON — Bulldog QB Club donates $1,014

HUNTINGTON - The St. Mary’s Medical Center Foundation Pink Ribbon Fund has received a $1,014 donation from the Lawrence County High School Bulldog Quarterback Club in Louisa.

The fund helps to provide mammograms to uninsured and underinsured women.

“This was a way for us to honor all of our loved ones lost to this horrible disease of breast cancer,” said Mary Adams, LCHS guidance counselor and club vice president.

The club chose the fund as the recipient of its gift because St. Mary’s is where Adams receives her yearly mammograms and she has always been pleased with her care.

“We are very appreciative of the Quarterback Club for the donation to the Pink Ribbon Fund,” said Anne Hammack, RN, BSN, breast center clinical manager.

“Many women across the Tri-State will benefit from the kindness and generosity.”

The club is the LCHS football team’s booster club. It funded the donation through the sale of its first breast cancer T-shirt.

For more information about donating to the fund, call the foundation at (304) 526-8180. To schedule a mammogram, call (304) 526-8221.

Man arrested on drug charges

ASHLAND - A Catlettsburg man was arrested on a felony drug-trafficking charge after he allegedly went to sell pills to an informant, then fled after noticing sheriff’s deputies in the area of the planned to rendezvous.

Michael D. Johnson, 21, was lodged in the Boyd County Detention Center on a charge of first-degree trafficking after deputies stopped his vehicle at 29th Street and Blackburn Avenue, according to a release from the Boyd County Sheriff’s Department.
