East Baseball, Chase & East Softball Gain SMAC Share, Playoffs Next
East Baseball, Chase & East Softball Gain SMAC Share, Playoffs Next
The last time we left off, East Rutherford was all alone in first place to capture the South Mountain Athletic Conference baseball title, but instead they will share the title with Burns this season.

Burns won their final two games, while East earned a split for the week as a lost to Shelby produced the shared SMAC crown outcome.

However, all is not lost for East and two other county baseball teams in general who have made the playoffs which start this Friday. East Rutherford will host North Lincoln as a No.1 seed and have home field advantage throughout the postseason since the SMAC has seeding priority this time around in NCHSAA weird playoff system. That would take forever to explain. Trust me!

“The Ballad Of Nancy Hanks”
“The Ballad Of Nancy Hanks”
Editors Note: Once again, the play “The Ballad Of  Nancy Hanks” was performed by the Rutherford Community Theatre.This time, it was presented at Concord Baptist Church. This made it a special event, because it is claimed that Concord Baptist is where Nancy Hanks attended and took her son, little Abraham. It is claimed that Bostic is where he was born. The mystery of  Abraham Lincoln’s birth still continues to this day. This article is offered as a suggestion which could benefit Rutherford County. The play is both interesting and well done.

Rutherford Weekly’s Favorite Reader Recipes 5/10/12
One thing everyone enjoys when they do cook at home is not only time tested recipes, but also convenience. This week I am going to the kitchen and making some great recipes that are convenient! It all happens because I’m using “What’s Cooking at Tanner’s Grove” (Second Edition) cookbook. It was put together by the Women’s Society of Christian Service at the church.

Opinion

Listen To Life
How much “drama” is there in your life?

When our daughter was in middle school, I discovered that it’s far more traumatic than you might imagine—for her that is.  There was so much “drama” in middle school.  The “he said/she said” creates “issues” for these kids.

Frankly I don’t remember all of this “drama.” But I was more into baseball, fishing, and hunting than relationships back then.  It was a different era.  We all wanted to wear Levis, I do remember that.  And I do recall getting a lecture or two about peer pressure.  Maybe that was what sufficed for our drama.  Perhaps with us it was about peer pressure.

Outdoor Truths

Outdoor Truths
I’ve always heard that writing is more about perspiration than inspiration. It’s true. Even though it is very fulfilling to write about the outdoors, it is also difficult at times to continue to find worthy subjects and stories. Sometimes my mind soars with information faster than my fingers can type. Other times those same fingers seem like they’re waiting impatiently for the next command. During the times of inspiration I can’t wait to get to the computer. During other times I dread its call. Every writer loves the moments of inspiration.

I’ve discovered over the years there is a catalyst that induces inspiration. That catalyst is “presence.” Here’s what I mean. I find that when I’ve been too busy to be outside, the inspirational juices dry up. But when I am in the presence of the water or woods those same juices began to flow.
