Five simple ways to make Apple Music better
Apple’s music service is growing quickly, but the app still needs a little work.
Black History Month Program at Pass Road Elementary
Black History Month continues as February comes to an end and a local elementary hosted their annual program to celebrate and honor the month long event. News 25’s Payton Malone traveled out to Pass Road Elementary in Gulfport and has more. Black History Month is nearly over and from the sights and sounds at Pass Road Elementary School, students and teachers are wrapping up the month long celebration in a big way. Event Planner Judy Barkum said, “All of our kids participate and they have a ball.” There were even celebrity guest appearances. Students dressed up as prominent figures in black history. There was no shortage of entertainment. This year’s theme was Harlem Renaissance. “There was so much to do because there are writers, there are all kinds of great thinkers from that time and the music. You can’t say enough about the music from the Harlem Renaissance time,” said Barkum. Fourth grader Christian Scruggs is known to steal the show and this year was no different with his impersonation of jazz singer Cab Calloway. While Christian enjoyed performing for his classmates and signing autographs, he understands why this is important. “It’s important to show how black people were able to accomplish things and how they could go to school, like we could go to Pass Road Elementary because if it wasn’t for black history we wouldn’t be able to come here.” Students and parents filled the gym for the show. Performers like third grader Ijahnna Daniel look forward to the event all year long. “Everyone gets to watch and be inspired and learn about our history.” And to continue the celebration of diversity, Pass Road Elementary will also host a Hispanic and Latino celebration in October.

"We're going to miss 'em"
LEXINGTON, Ky (WTVQ) - The Cats have a lot of young talent expected to emerge over the next couple of seasons, but first the Cats must say goodbye to a valuable group of seniors. Here's what Stoops had to say after the Music City Bowl about the seniors who just played their final game as a Wildcat.

"It didn't surprise me we went down and scored."
LEXINGTON, Ky (WTVQ) - The Music City Bowl was a crazy game from beginning to end. The second quarter easily takes the cake as the crazier quarter, but the final quarter wasn't bad either. Defensive stops, turnovers and big touchdowns...the fourth quarter had it all. Here's what Stoops had to say about his team's performance in the final moments of the game.
"We schemed it up all week."
LEXINGTON, Ky (WTVQ) - The Wildcats came up just one point short of winning the Music City Bowl against Northwestern. Stephen Johnson scored on a rushing touchdown, but Mark Stoops decided to go for the win and go for two, instead of kicking the extra point. Here's what Stephen Johnson and Tavin Richardson had to say about that final play.
"I'm proud of how we fought back."
LEXINGTON, Ky (WTVQ) - Despite losing arguably their best player, losing Stephen Johnson for a part of the game and trailing 17-7 at half, the Kentucky Wildcats still managed to claw their way back into the game. A Stephen Johnson rushing touchdown with just over thirty seconds to play put the Cats one point away from tying the ballgame. Coach Mark Stoops opted to go for two, but it wasn't meant to be. The Cats lost the Music City Bowl 24-23. Here's what Stoops had to say after the game.

Ware Suspended for Music City Bowl
LEXINGTON, Ky (WTVQ) - Mark Stoops has announced Denzil Ware has been suspended for the Music City Bowl. Stoops did not elaborate on why or how long he would suspended. When asked on Ware's participation next season, he would not comment.
"Quarterback is a different situation."
LEXINGTON, Ky (WTVQ) - Once the Music City Bowl comes to an end, the Cats off-season will begin. Their biggest question, who will be the next quarterback for the Cats? Stephen Johnson will be gone and that leaves an open spot. Thankfully the Cats have QB's on campus and one of the way to help. Here's what Stoops had to say about the most recent recruiting haul.
