By now, we all know the story. Dale Earnhardt Jr. carried a weight on his shoulders for four years until dumping it off in Michigan this past weekend.
Junior went 143 races without a win, but driving with a Batman scheme on the car, the No.88 Diet Mountain Dew Chevy made a long-awaited appearance into victory lane on Sunday. The Batman paint scheme fit perfectly as he by far and away had the best car on Sunday and even seemed like a super hero as he came down to receive the checkered flag.
The fifteenth annual kids & cops big event takes place on Friday, June 22nd from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. It just gets bigger and better every year. The Forest City Police started the event with just crayons and colorbook pages downtown in Forest City years ago. Now it has grown to one of the biggest events in Western Carolina. It is held at Forest City Dunbar Park. You are invited to join thousands who will come out to let the world know that cops are our friends. They help us, watch over us and are always there for us! It’s that one day of every year that we all get together to celebrate “our friends” - the cops who take this time to salute the kids!
Camp G.O.L.D. Rush, For Childern With Diabetes, Held For Fourth Year
Do you think someone else has it made?
A mechanic was busy removing a cylinder head from the motor of a Harley-Davidson motorcycle when a well-known heart surgeon entered his
shop. The surgeon was waiting for the service manager to take a look at his bike when the mechanic shouted across the garage, “Hey, Doc, can I ask you a question?”
The surgeon, a bit surprised, walked over. The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked, “Doc, look at this engine. I open its heart, take valves out, fix ‘em, put ‘em back in, and when I finish, it works just like new. So why do I get such a small salary and you get the really big bucks, when you and I are doing basically the same work?”

In my area, June has been a very pleasant month for outdoor activities. There have been many days where the mornings have had a nip to them and where the midday seemed almost deplete of any humidity. These will soon be overcome by the sweltering days of August. But until then I will savor each moment.
Fishing has become the pastime of most outdoorsmen. Many of these trips have a camping aspect attached which makes them even more memorable. And of course, the recreational boaters and jet skiers are also making the most of these pre summer days. All in all it’s another ‘beautiful day in the neighborhood.’ I’ve already enjoyed a night on the river bank, sitting beside a camp fire with my son. We enjoyed baked potatoes that were cooked by the embers from the fire, along with fried redeye that we caught that evening.
