East Rutherford continues its sizzling offensive production with two more of those last week. After leading 45-22 at the half, they downed A.C. Reynolds in a 78-45 non-conference win. In the latter half of the week, East dispatched of Hunter Huss, 83-63.
Master of Ceremonies, Jim Bishop, called out #134 and showed us the winning number.
It all got started with the very first Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce Reverse Raffle.

What’s your legacy?
I was at a funeral recently for a woman who had two grandsons. Both of these guys gave her eulogy. That’s pretty tough when you’re close with your grandmother like these two obviously were.
I was greatly intrigued by their eulogy. These two grandsons didn’t talk about what lavish gifts they received from their grandmother or expensive trips she took them on.

Timing is everything. Have you ever just felt like you were out of sync with what was going on in the woods or on the water? Sometimes it seems that on the days that you can go fishing, the weather is terrible or the fish are uncooperative. And on the days that you can’t go or just decide not to go, those are the days that limits are caught in the first hour. It’s the same with hunting. It seems sometimes, on the days that I go deer hunting that the deer are not stirring. But let me stay home one morning and they’re everywhere. Timing is everything, and most of the time, we are usually “one day late and a dollar short.”
