Two Rutherford Co. Hoops Teams Make Regionals, Three Fall In Second Place
   When we left off last week, all five high school teams that had made the state playoffs in Rutherford County had advanced into the second round. Later on in the week, R-S Central’s boys, Thomas Jefferson’s boys and the East Rutherford’s girls ended the season with second round loses on the road.

Listen To Life
Do you praise or criticize?

Someone did an experiment with two groups of golfers.  Each group had a round of golf videotaped.

The video of the rounds was edited.  The first group was shown video of their best shots—their longest drives, their most accurate iron shots and chips, their one-putts. The instructor conducting the experiment praised the golfers and told them to, “Go out there and play like this again.” And the golfers did. In fact, they went out and actually improved their scores.
