Hard work does pay off and R-S Central’s girls basketball team is finally seeing that success they have been after in recent seasons.
Following the escape of Patton earlier in the week, the Lady Hilltoppers walloped Shelby to gain their first conference title in 24 years. Alyssia Watkins fires a up an old-fashion three-point play to spark R-S Central (20-1, 11-0) down the stretch against Patton for the win and then an unselfish group came to play Shelby on Friday. After the first quarter, they were never really challenge by the South Mountain Athletic’s second-place team again as they led by as many as 23 before completing a 20-point victory.

“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me” Matthew 25:35
They are hungry and they give them food. They are thirsty and they give them drink. They may be strangers but they are welcomed! This is what transpires week after week, year after year at the Storehouse Pantry where everything is free! Storehouse Pantry is located at the Tri-City Mall in the back behind Roses. It now occupies 28,000 square feet.
What is the soil of your mind growing?
I was working out in the yard around our home, digging in the dirt; getting some things ready for spring planting and digging up some plants I didn’t want growing, like poison ivy. It was growing beside a maple tree that I really like.
So I stood there, thinking about the fact that poison ivy and a maple tree grow in the same soil. I guess that’s because the soil really doesn’t care what’s planted in it—a maple tree or poison ivy. The soil nourishes and grows whatever it receives.

The warm February weather has really put a hamper on the work I need to get done. I’m hearing about 15 inch crappie and my mind keeps wondering to places far away from my office. I love warm winters. The air seems so pure and filled with extra goodies like adrenaline and passion. Each breath is a heavenly tonic that seems to cure and rejuvenate everything that the previous difficult days have stripped away. I think it is only fitting that a new year starts this way. It’s as if the tank is refilled with the fuel that will be needed for another year.
