Shelby…the one team Chase High School has yet to beat in the local history of high school football.
The Trojans had their chance and seemed to be on the path of ending the streak of 45 games without a win over the Golden Lions.
Building #1 of facebook has been completed and we were given a media tour which I’d like to share with you. The Governor and Lieutenant Governor of North Carolina headed the media delegation on the facebook campus in Forest City. NCDC Operations Manager. George Henry, headed the tour of the new two story building which has four foot flooring and very high ceilings. An important announcement preceded the media occasion. Construction will immediately begin on a second 105,000 square foot building on the Rutherford County campus. First it was just one building, now it is two! Today, I’m taking you on the tour and sharing it with you.
How long is a minute?
I’m not exactly sure how long a minute is anymore. Sometimes a minute seems longer than at other times. For instance, I’m driving to an appointment and I’m running a little late. The traffic light I’m approaching turns yellow, then red. I have to stop. A minute seems like a long time.
Or, I’m traveling and simply must stop to go to the bathroom. When I arrive at a convenient mart and run in and the restroom door is locked, a minute seems like a very long time.

I had been in the stand only 15 minutes when the doe appeared. When it crossed the path that I came in on, she immediately smelled an unfamiliar odor and followed it with her eyes to my tree stand. Now, she was at full alert, trying to bring into focus the blob that was in the tree. She moved to my left trying to wind me but was unable to satisfy her curiosity until I had come to full draw. I landed what I thought was a good shot. It was a little high but I was sure it did the job. Instead of a pass- through shot, the arrow stayed planted in her side. I knew this would present a few problems, but I was still confident. After nearly three hours, I left without finding the deer or even one spot of blood. My disappointment still haunts me; not the disappointment that comes from a missed opportunity, but the kind that comes because shot deer are meant to be found and are meant to supply food for the table. Otherwise it’s a needless death.
