The Master's Academy Launches Athletic Program
The Master's Academy Launches Athletic Program

"It's been a lot of hard work by a group of volunteers to make this happen and to get an 18 game schedule in our first year, as well as getting into a state association, has been challenging, yet rewarding." said Ryan Elkins, volunteer coach, on the inaugural basketball season. "These aren't top notch basketball players or athletes but they are great kids learning to play the game of basketball while also learning life lessons like teamwork, focus, dedication and perseverance. We are planning on having a girl's softball team this year and next year we plan to add girl's volleyball, boy's soccer, cross country and golf. It's an exciting time at TMA!"

After falling to East Gaston for the second time this season, R-S Central Men found themselves as the co-champs of the Southwestern 2A Conference with South Point. It's the first league title in 17 years when they shared it with East Rutherford in 2001. No question, it's the best Central team since that 2001 season.

The Longest Goodbye

"During our many years together we have said countless goodbyes to one another. Every working day we would wish each other a good day, followed with a kiss, before we each went our separate way. Over time, you had many business trips, some were overnight and others as long as two weeks in length, but, as we said goodbye, we knew we parted in love, secure in the knowledge that we would always be reunited after a short time apart. Our love for one another sustained us and we knew those goodbyes were temporary. We would see one another again and be one in mind and heart.

Now, however, you are taking a very long journey, one where I cannot accompany you. You are taking a trip accompanied by the disease of Alzheimer's. Neither of us know how long this trip will last or the exact time frame we are working within."

My friend just ended his deer season in Alabama. On the last day of the month he bagged a nice eight pointer on a piece of property that had gone untended and had always been relegated as his least favorite and most undesirable.

What's one little thing you can do today?

I did an interview with a radio station in the Detroit area the year Detroit and St. Louis played in the World Series. They gave the weather forecast just before I came on. It called for cold rain and the possibility of snow.

The guy on this morning team was a huge Tigers fan. So I asked him, "Hey, are the Tigers going to win the Series in the snow?"

And he said, "I don't care how they win it just so long as they win it. But it's hard to tell this time of year. The only difference between rain and snow is about one degree."

I've thought about that a lot. One degree, one little thing you do can make a huge difference as you Live Positive. For instance, if you eat one less candy bar today, you make a difference in your weight. If you smoke one less cigarette today, you make a difference in how long you live. If you focus on one more positive thought today, you make a difference in your attitude about life.

So choose to do one little thing and enjoy the difference as you Live Positive and make a life worth living today.
