A baseline exam should be done if you are between the ages of 35 and 40. If you are age 40 to 49 you should have a mammogram every year or every two years depending on your medical history. After the age of 50, you should be checked yearly.

Rattlers sting Tigers
The Hayden High School girls volleyball team traveled to the Little Snake River Rattlers Snake Pit Sept. 21 only to find themselves buzzed and snake bitten. The tough Lady Rattler’s easily dominated the court in both the junior varsity and varsity matches.
The lady Rattlers were venomous in their attack following their second place finish at the Albin tournament this past weekend. The Rattlers met the Albin Lady Wilcats in the championship game on the Wildcats home court. We understand the crowds were lined along the court and the bleachers were filled. Our Rattlers look forward to a re-match at state.
If you have not had the chance to see our Lady Rattlers play we encourage you to do so in the weeks ahead.

Boys get your tennies on and girls have your tags ready. Get ready, get set … go! Good luck to all.
The junior high volleyball team appears to be taking pointers from their upperclassmen as they take to the courts and defeat their opponents thus far. The Rattlers have defeated Wamsutter, Hanna, Saratoga and Encampment. Coaches Floydene Orchard and Jenny Evans are hoping to be tough throughout the season. Good luck girls, and we are behind you all the way.
