Many counties throughout the nation have a Boys & Girls Club doing great things for the community. Here in Rutherford County, we have the same thing except it’s called Youth Empowerment! It is effective, all giving, and has fast become a mainstay within our community.
East Rutherford and R-S Central met for a third time on the court this season in boys play. Central, who has continued its up and down season seemed to be on pace in knocking off East Rutherford. Central led most of the first half, but a 22-0 run by East midway through the contest allowed the Cavs to pick up a 77-66 win at home.
With the win, East Rutherford’s boys move to 16-2 overall, 6-1 in conference as they hold the number one 2A playoff seed in the SMAC with five games left. R-S Central on the other hand has played well against the likes of East, Shelby and Freedom, but have fallen short each time. Currently, the Hilltoppers hold the number three 3A seed out of the SMAC for the playoffs

I treasure this book of love in my personal cookbook collection. Let’s get started.

Do you love the familiar?
I moved my office recently. Not far. Just across the hall.
But I changed desks, which means I changed credenzas. Took out one table and added another book shelf for my collection of soon-to-be souvenirs. And I moved my trash can.
None of that sounds particularly important, does it?
Moving the trash can proved to be dangerous.

Several years ago, it was not unusual to make one or two trips per week to wade the Cherokee Lake. Late winter always proved to hold enough of the bass variety to keep me fishing even in the most extreme conditions. These trips usually only lasted about half of the day and since I kept my equipment in my truck, I only needed a short notice and a good excuse.
