Glen Allen ES teacher to appear on Wheel of Fortune Jan. 23

Page Almond has an addiction, and she's not afraid to talk about it.

It reared its head as early as second grade, when her teacher gave the class a free writing assignment and she chose to write about. . . the rules to her favorite TV game show, Wheel of Fortune.

A confessed "Wheel watcher," Almond has tuned in religiously since childhood.

Snowstorm causes urgent need for blood donors


The American Red Cross is urging eligible donors throughout the Mid-Atlantic Blood Services Region to give blood or platelets following the recent winter storm, which has compounded a severe winter blood shortage.

Snow and icy roads forced 27 blood drives to cancel in the Mid-Atlantic Blood Services Region, causing about 750 donations to go uncollected. Last month, nearly 100 blood drives were forced to cancel across the country due to severe weather, resulting in more than 3,100 blood donations going uncollected. Overall, hectic holiday schedules for many regular blood donors and weather contributed to about 37,000 fewer donations in November and December than what was needed.
