The Argenta Film Series Presents Academy Award Winner UNDEFEATED

The Argenta Film Series Presents Academy Award Winner UNDEFEATED

The Argenta Film Series Presents Academy Award Winner UNDEFEATED, Febuary 21st, 7p.m., Argenta Community Theater with special guest Bill Courtney, coach of the Manassas Tigers football team.

Set against the backdrop of a high school football season, Dan Lindsay and T.J. Martin’s documentary UNDEFEATED, winner of the Academy Award® for Best Documentary Feature, is an intimate chronicle of three underprivileged student-athletes from inner-city Memphis and the volunteer coach trying to help them beat the odds on and off the field.

Founded in 1899, Manassas High School in North Memphis has never seen its football team, the Tigers, win a playoff game. In recent decades, the last-place Tigers had gone so far as to sell its regular season games to rival schools looking to chalk up an easy win.

BBB: Watch for post-disaster 'red flags'

BBB: Watch for post-disaster 'red flags'

The damage caused by natural disasters such as floods and tornadoes can often bring out the best in people, as strangers reach out to help others in need. Unfortunately, the aftermath of a crisis also brings out persons who take advantage of those who have already been victimized.

Some of the most common "after-disaster" scams involve home repairs, clean-up efforts, heating and cooling equipment and flood-damaged cars.

The Better Business Bureau has the following advice for consumers:

It's not too late for Christmas deliveries

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - If you still haven't sent out your holiday gifts yet, you still have some time, and a few options. Though the deadline for pre-Christmas delivery via FedEx Ground is December 17th, last-minute shippers still have options. More than 82 percent of all packages shipped via FedEx Ground are delivered in three business days or less. Plus, procrastinators have until Saturday, December 22nd to ship items via FedEx Express for delivery in the continental U.S. on December 24th.   

As online and in-store shoppers check off their lists, FedEx expects to see more than 280 million shipments pass through its worldwide shipping networks during the holiday season. To manage the extra volume, FedEx has increased its workforce by approximately 20,000 seasonal positions.
