Our county doesn’t hear about it as much as it should, but Forest City’s Youth Basketball of America organization is having another incredible summer.
The Forest City Heat, who won the 2010 state title in the 14-year-old division, repeated that feat over a month ago. Since that time, they have finished runner-up in two other tourneys, one in Augusta, Georgia and the other at a huge event in Arkansas.
For sure, everyone in Rutherford County, without exception, has been touched by or have had to deal with the dreaded disease, cancer. Family, friends, neighbors and coworkers have shared those times or experiences with you. It is always about the heartaches cancer brings. For us, it is a ragging battle to survive. We seek hope and stay dedicated to winning the war. Our determination will eventually bring a cure. Meanwhile, we need help! That help is the constant Relay For Life Fund Raisers. So, mark this on your calendars and be sure to be there.
I thought it would be nice to share it with you.

Do you try?
A couple of really strong thunderstorms blew through where I live. Their winds were so powerful that they blew up a corner of the tin roof on the barn where we store the hay we feed the horses.
I had someone estimate the cost of replacing it, but it would be a while before he could return to actually fix it. In the mean time, the hay and the inside of the barn were getting wet. I thought about trying to get up there myself, but my ladder didn’t seem long enough to reach the roof.

Most mornings I am challenged before I really even begin my day. When I’m not hunting or fishing, I meet a few friends for an early morning run. The challenge is not actually in the run, even though they can be difficult as well. But the real confrontation comes as I see various people on the trail. There are folks of all ages who have some sort of desire or reason for getting out very early to walk or run. Many of the older ones do it because a doctor has prescribed them to walk a few times each week. So they do. But I don’t think they really understood what the doctor really meant.
