The South Mountain Athletic Conference maybe the most competitive in league history this year, it’s in softball where there is no room for error.
East Rutherford (11-1, 5-1) got the best of Chase (7-1, 5-1) last week on the softball field with a 5-2 triumph. It’s the first loss for a very solid Chase softball team this season. Jaclyn Boever notched the win for East, as she has been phenomenal on the mound this season.
At KidSenses in Rutherfordton on Friday, April 6th, it was a super special occasion. Lines of youngsters waited patiently to participate in an awe inspiring Easter Egg event. KidSenses Program Coordinator, Betsy Krigbaum, put together an Egg Dye Extravaganza! All the participating kids were given two eggs to dye and they could choose any color they wanted. Also, in addition to decorating the eggs, the youngsters made craft flowers or designed their own magnetic foam egg. It all started at 5:30 and went on until 8 p.m.

What are you thinking about?
I was in the Washington, DC area, driving through some of what I’m convinced is the eternal road construction there. So here I am driving slowly in traffic when I see beside me this huge motor grader running about 35 mph on what will be a road. It looks like it’s carrying about 20 tons of dirt in it, and its moving faster than I am.
Well, up on top of this gigantic piece of equipment carrying all of that dirt is a little man, sitting in a cab, both hands on the steering wheel. He weighs a fraction of the equipment and dirt, but still controls it.

I don’t consider myself computer illiterate but I’m also not a tech expert. I fall somewhere in-between. I used to spend more time learning about new gadgets but now I sort of just maintain until I’m forced to adapt or be left behind. One of the things that I’m trying to adapt to is my digital camera. I know, I know, don’t laugh. I’ve actually had the camera for a couple of years but all I’ve been doing is taking pictures the simplest way I could. I just thought all of the buttons where there so they could sell it for more. (I feel the same way about my cell phone. Why can’t they just give me big numbers, lots of volume, and plenty of light?) I digress.
