Thomas Jefferson Soccer Continues 2012 Title Quest, East Baseball Too
One county club is vying for it’s sixth 2A title, while another is fighting to claim its’ first ever title in school history.

Three years ago, a girls soccer team full of freshman and sophomores made it to the scene of Rutherford County athletics and a great impression as well at Thomas Jefferson Classical Academy. The first time I watched them play, I knew back then that this was a team which could threaten for championship. Those ladies will get that chance to play for a 1A state title this weekend in Raleigh and gives TJCA the opportunity to earn its first ever state title in any sport.

Taking Care Of Our Own... “Twistfest” Inaugurated To Help Our Community
 You might say that the recent tornado in Rutherford County has had its’ benefit. Because of this terror of nature, “Twistfest” - a new event to help raise money for anyone affected within the community - was conceived and held it’s first benefit concert on Saturday, May 12th. It was held at the Golden Valley Music Park in Bostic. The setting was great and on the stage, six bands entertained those that took the time to enjoy the afternoon and evening and came out to support this new organization.

     “Twistfest is a great idea! It is a preventative maintenance program that stands ready not only to raise funds, but also to assist anyone harmed by a natural disaster. This event should grow and get bigger every year and definitely deserves the support of the community.

Rutherford Weekly’s Favorite Reader Recipes 5/24/12
None of us can deny that the one dish meal we all call a casserole is always a time saver. It is there for all of us who want a hearty meal and don’t have the time to do a three course meal. This week, I’m going to the kitchen and making some casserole dishes. I’m using the old Alexander Baptist Church’s cookbook “Ladies Of The Church”.

Listen To Life
What’s your passion?

We all have a passion for something, that is, we care deeply about something in life and we could give a lot of our time and energy, attention and money to that cause. I coach lots of people searching for their passion.

I’ve discovered that maybe you think of passion just as something you can get excited about, something that you have be all revved up about, when that’s not necessarily so.  Sure, you want to be enthusiastic about life in general and your passion specifically, but true passion is something a little different.

Outdoor Truths

Outdoor Truths
Fish like structure. Anyone who has been fishing long enough realizes this. That structure can be buried far from the bank or it can be in the shallow water, in full view for every fisherman to see. It comes in the form of trees, bushes, rocks, or just a different type of terrain. But it holds fish. No matter what bait a person wants to throw, he’ll always find himself tossing it into one of these areas. Sometimes the fish hold tight to these places. In these times it takes pin point casting accuracy. You can’t just throw it close. It has to be deep within the tree or bush. Other times the fish seem to linger out a little farther. It’s almost always easier to catch more fish when this happens. And it doesn’t take a brain surgeon to figure out why.
