The Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce held it’s annual dinner and meeting on Friday, July 20th at The Carolina Event and Conference Center in Forest City. In just seven months, the new Director, Clark Poole and company, brought out over 200 members to the meeting. It was quite a contrast to last years turnout of only 75! The dinner-meeting was indicative of the new attitude and positive thrust of the chamber which goes hand in hand with the county attracting new businesses.

Do you have wandering eyes?
You’re sitting in a restaurant in an end-of-the-aisle booth. Your back is to the front of the establishment. The person sitting across from you has a view of the dining room. You have only the person in front of you to look at; there’s even a large petition behind her, separating you from the kitchen.
You’re enjoying your conversation with your friend, but occasionally her eyes dart off to the side and she looks with anticipation at some person moving to a table. You see the anticipation as one of those “Do I know this person?” looks.

This week’s article is an excerpt from my new book; Devotions from a Hunting, Fishing, Sports Father to His Son. I offer it in light of the Colorado shootings.
Guard Your Heart and Your Gun Will be Fine
Son, a lot of folks don’t understand people who hunt and fish. To them we are unlearned and barbaric (sort of like a caveman). They think that we just go out and kill stuff and have no heart or feelings toward animals. Some will even go out of their way to make all hunting illegal. What’s funny is they think if I have a gun in my home, that I’m an irresponsible parent. Most of the time, you will not be able to convince these people any different. It won’t matter how fair you are or how kind you are to them, or even how educated you are, they will still spew out hateful and mostly ignorant points of view.
