The Cavaliers are used to big games and pressure situations at this point. The baseball program has seen their share of those moments and that in turn may have helped them get a monster win over Burns last week.
East Rutherford now takes over sole possession of the SMAC after Ridge Beheler fired a complete game shutout against the Bulldogs.
East Rutherford (15-4, 9-1) already playoff bound, must win one of the final two conference games to earn the No.1 2A seed from the SMAC. Beating Shelby at home on Tuesday (5/1/12) would be the two for one deal as they would capture the No.1 2A seed and finish no worse than gaining a share of the SMAC title.
The address of success - 284 Social Circle - greets all visitors.
You could call it a celebration, but it was more of a salute or thank you from both Facebook, North Carolina and especially Rutherford County. One might say, it was a mutual admiration party enjoyed by over 300 people. In the true tradition of our heritage, it was declared a pig pickin’. The big white tent at Facebook’s 284 Social Circle held dignitaries and honored guests. The speeches were both appropriate and gratefully, brief. To use today’s jargon, it was a magnificent “shout out” by everyone involved. All parties involved in the creation of Facebooks data center conveyed appreciation and especially pride. After all from all over our nation and the world, Rutherford County was chosen above anyone else. It definitely was a magnificent achievement.

Are you hanging on until you’re ripe?
When I lived on the coast of North Carolina, just across the road from us was a field of about a hundred acres of strawberry plants. The owners ran an international plant shipping business and harvested berries to sell.
Migrant workers began picking in early April each year. Most if not all of the strawberries they harvested weren’t ripe, mostly red on the outside, but not through the middle. They didn’t spoil like this on the way to the store.

If you have hunted for a considerable amount of time, you can trace your evolution. While once any deer would do; soon you held your shot for something larger. But what do you do after that?
I met a friend the other day that makes recurve bows by hand. He takes each piece of wood and allows its own characteristics to determine what it will ultimately look like. Most have some type of crook that doesn’t allow a perfect product, but they are extremely effective in the hands of a skilled archer. Not only does my friend make these bows, but he hunts with them as well. And I have seen his pictures of success with both turkeys and deer.
