Some believe in moral victories and others feel differently.
Chase has to be okay with how they played last Friday as they fell 28-14 to the South Mountain Athletic Conference co-leaders in Burns.
The undefeated season is no more for Chase, but the blemish is to a 3A opponent that they will not see again this season. They still could tie for the conference title if they win out with Burns and East Rutherford suffering losses.
Tom Addley, Project Manager from Clary Hood overseas the leveling and clearing of the 193 acre Horsehead site.
The announcement that a corporation named Horsehead just outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania had chosen Rutherford County to build its new state of the art plant was exciting. They would be hiring 250 people with an average salary of over $40,000. First, Facebook and now Horsehead! Considering the tax input as well as employment, it has been most welcomed news to a county needing jobs and future security.
Do you just ask?
I sat in our kitchen one early morning, rocking, reading and reflecting; getting ready to enjoy the day. The window was open and I heard geese honking. They congregate around a pond surrounded by a huge grain field. They evidently wake up honking because I hear them so often.

There’s no doubt that we have never had better resources in the hunting and fishing arena than we do now. And while many pieces of equipment are expensive, even the least expensive ones are better than the stuff of years ago. Take my bow for instance. I’m shooting over 300 feet per second through an arrow rest that never touches the arrow while aiming through a fiber optic sight that has micro adjustments. It is one of the best on the market and yet an entry level bow will shoot with more force and accuracy than the top bows of say the 1960’s or 70’s. And then when you consider things like trail cameras, global positioning systems, and scent free clothes, there’s really no reason for a hunter to not be able to harvest a deer or any other game for that matter.
