East Rutherford High baseball has won everything , including five state titles, but they have yet to win their own Easter tourney.
East Rutherford found themselves in the championship game for the fourth time in five years, but lost 11-0 to South Caldwell in Easter Tourney finals at McNair. South Caldwell is a very good baseball team, which moved a JV squad from two years ago up that could have beaten a number of high school teams then. That’s how talented the Spartans have been as of late.
18 Years Later, Still Helping People Turn Their Lives Around
18 years ago, Chris Davis and Denver Buchanan from Chase Baptist Church saw the need and organized what became “The Grace Of God Rescue Mission”. They had visited Shelby’s Rescue Mission and discovered that one third of the people in Shelby were from Rutherford County. They saw the need and fulfilled it.
Today their mission has not only got stronger but is now in the midst of creating “Grace Acres Gardens and Park”, close to the men’s shelter. The giving and caring nature of this organization can be overwhelming.

Do you tell stories?
The most common question I get from emails and as I do speaking engagements is: “How do you come up with all of those stories?” And that’s a great question. I write and record about 260 stories a year.
I guess there are two short answers: One is I Listen to my Life and just share what happens. And the second, based on the first, is I don’t do anything—writing stories, or anything else—in life alone. I have help everywhere I go and in everything I do.

Spring is made for the outdoors. It seems that everything that inspires us has its beginnings outside. Whether you hunt, fish, hike, bike, run, play sports, garden, or simply mow your grass, it feels empowering to engage in all of these under the clear skies and in the clean air of springtime. While fall will mesmerize us with its panoramas, spring will motivate us with its pursuits. It is the season of life and the preparation that comes with it. The birds will build their nests; the animals will give birth to their young; and the trees and plants will unfold their blankets of green that perfectly match a sparkling blue sky. It is a painting that has been supernaturally brushed.
