"All The Shingle Ladies" The Women Roofers

By now, most everyone in the county has heard about The Women Roofers -- those exceptional women that have gained notoriety for providing urgently needed repairs to the homes of qualified homeowners in the county. They help with a lot of projects, but mostly, they replace leaky roofs. They've been doing it for 15 years and they've received a good bit of publicity for their good work. They're kind of 'famous' around here.

Legion baseball

Post 423 has started out 6-0 on the year and have a pretty strong cast of players on the roster this season. A year ago, they were a force to reckon with, but now that the majority of the team is back, they could be a tougher out this season. However, they are now on graduation break and will not return to the field until June 20th when they face Cherryville at home.

Isothermal Partners With NC State For 4th Annual Engineering Discovery Camp

"The Engineering Discovery Camp, a partnership between Isothermal Community College and North Carolina State University, engages campers in the engineering design process (EDP) through team-based hands-on activities. Rather than simply following directions like you would when assembling a model airplane, the campers are challenged with a specific problem to solve but the solution remains open ended." says Dale Gaddis, Camp Director.

The ACC may  not be that strong  in baseball
The ACC may not be that strong in baseball

NCAA Baseball

It appears the only team in the ACC left in the running for the National title is North Carolina, unless Duke somehow made it past Georgia on Monday.

Clemson, N.C. State and Florida State were all upset at home, while Louisville fell at Texas Tech. The Tarheels will now face Stetson and they remind me of Coastal Carolina from a couple of years ago. Stetson's pitching is not bad, but they can certainly hit the baseball and play defense. The only difference is that Coastal Carolina had way better pitching and they were clutch when they needed to be.

I can remember my first solo deer hunting trip. I sat in a maple tree that was only about 50 yards from an oak tree that was flooded with acorns. The path to that oak made its way right under my tree stand.

What do you understand?

A second grader came home from school and said to her mother, "Mom, guess what? We learned how to make babies today."

You can imagine that the mother was more than a little bit surprised, thinking that she should have signed some sort of paper stating the teacher could offer such information. And she thought, "Isn't second grade a little early?" But she kept her cool anyway.

"That's interesting," she said to her little girl, "How do you make babies?"

"It's simple," the little girl said. "You just change 'y' to 'i' and add 'es'."

Amazing, isn't it, how you think you know what someone is talking about and you don't? That's why listening to life is such a vital part of your Live Positive lifestyle. You assume you know what someone means, and oftentimes don't. Be like this Mom and listen a little bit longer and discover what your co-worker or family member really means.

Keep your ears, your heart and your mind open as you Live Positive and make a life worth living today.
