SIKESTON -- A free, 10-week exercise program offered through the University of Missouri Extension aims to improve local adults' overall health and strength.

Set to begin at 9:30 a.m. March 5 at the OAKS Center in Sikeston, "Stay Strong, Stay Healthy," is designed for those who are 18 and older.

"The series can help you get started on the road to better health.
