A good crowd came to The Palace for the showdown between East Rutherford and R-S Central last Tuesday.
In Rutherfordton, both schools left no doubt about who was playing better at this point in time of the season.
East Rutherford reeled off a 9-0 run to begin the game and never really looked back. The Cavs Raheem Hampton splashed a three-ball from the left wing to end the half as East led 42-21 at the break.
It all got started by the Dellingers, in honor of this special young lady, their daughter, Kelly.
His name is Ken Dellinger who, together with his wife Diane, hosted his second annual Christmas Party for the handicapped and people of special needs. They have also hosted Valentine, Easter, Halloween parties as well as cookouts for their favorite people.
It all started because they wanted to do something to honor their daughter Kelly. Kelly was a special needs child and now, because of her, others are benefiting.
Only three days left before the big day. What would be very helpful is some quick and easy pick ups for the holidays. That’s is exactly what I intend to do. I’m going to the kitchen and make some easy and tasty pickups that you can share this Christmas season to family, friends, and guests. The Forest City Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church cookbook “That We May Live” is right on target.

Do you decorate?
I really love the Christmas and New Year’s holidays what with all of the decorations. You go to an office building, there are decorations. You go shopping, there are decorations. You drive through a neighborhood, there are many fine examples of exterior illumination displays that would make Clark Griswold envious. Even some truckers hang wreaths on the front of their rigs to celebrate.

Each morning I walked about three-fourths of a mile in order to get to my stand. I had cut limbs and bushes and out of the way and yet there was one area where I had to navigate around several tree-laps and weeds. I could have gone another way but this seemed to be the best direction if I was to leave the smallest footprint. The problem was not maneuvering the fallen trees; it was dodging those little cockleburs that attached themselves to my clothes. Every morning, while watching deer, I found myself picking off burr after burr without ever getting them all. One evening, after a hunt, I had the great idea of just putting the infested clothing in the wash and letting an agitator get rid of my agitation. It didn’t work. Those little things hung on like a kid at a water park. They say these were the inspiration behind Velcro. I can’t help but believe this to be true.
