Ryan Arrowood went undefeated during his senior year on the mound as an Appalachian State Mountaineer, but 2012 become became much sweeter the former R-S Central grad.
On the second day of the Major League draft and in the 28th round, Arrowood was selected by the Colorado Rockies last week. Arrowood, who also played summer ball with the Owls in two seasons, both CPL titles, signed a professional contract on Sunday.
After two years of planning owners, Jeff Wells (on left) and Jody Thompson proudly welcome everyone to their brand new facility.
From the beginning, it has always been about family. Three families. The need to feed the family and provide a service to the community was the motivating drive that emerged as Wells, Jenkins & Wells. It all started 35 years ago.
For themselves and for their neighbors, Grady Wells and his brother Billy did what they needed to do to “keep food on the table”. Together with a good friend, Earl Jenkins, who lived next door, they responded to the constant demand for butcher services. All three were very good at butchering. The only problem was that they did not have a plant. They began butchering in Earl’s basement. However, on April 15, 1970 they got caught.

How do you talk to your child?
Can you imagine the mother of Christopher Columbus saying, “I don’t care what you’ve discovered, you still could have written!”?
Or, George Washington’s mother saying, “The next time I catch you throwing money across the Potomac, you can kiss your allowance good-bye!”?
Or, Thomas Edison’s mother saying, “Of course I’m proud you invented the electric light bulb. Now turn it off and go to sleep!”?

The older I get, the more I enjoy the small rivers around my area. I used to be the lake type. I used to look forward to the sport, and even competition, of fishing. That competition was not necessarily with other boats, but it was as much with me. It seemed that each time I went fishing the score was zero to zero and each fish I caught or didn’t catch moved the score in one direction or another. I loved it, but it seems now that I didn’t appreciate it as much as I should have. Don’t get me wrong, my most memorable trips are still the ones where I caught the most fish; except perhaps for those where thunder and lightening were involved. But for the most part the lake has provided some great memories. And I hope it has more to give.
