It’s that time again! Are you for the Blue or the Red?
The South Mountain Athletic Conference opener and the initial battle to decide the Rutherford County Championship rolls through the jungle as R-S Central visits East Rutherford this Friday.
I viewed R-S Central (1-3) this past week, which lost 38-15 to Erwin. Despite the score, Central easily could have been tied or down by less a touchdown at the half.
“Mackey” constantly is in training for sniffing out drugs and firearms.
He has been in Law Enforcement for 10 years; six of those years have been with the Rutherford County Sheriff’s office. His name is Corporal Andy Millard. He was the first sheriff to be stationed full time at Isothermal Community College. Corporal Millard felt that there was a definite need as well as great benefits if he could get a Police K-9. Due to the fact that the economy was going through tough times, he didn’t know if it would be possible, police K-9’s are very expensive.

How long is a minute?
I’m not exactly sure how long a minute is anymore. Sometimes a minute seems longer than at other times. For instance, I’m driving to an appointment and I’m running a little late. The traffic light I’m approaching turns yellow, then red. I have to stop. A minute seems like a long time.
Or, I’m traveling and simply must stop to go to the bathroom. When I arrive at a convenient mart and run in and the restroom door is locked, a minute seems like a very long time.

The mornings are beginning to get cooler. Just today, the thermometer showed temperatures in the lower 50’s. The air seems as satisfying as a cool glass of water. And I’m not the only one who agrees. More people are enjoying the outdoors since they don’t have to endure the sweltering heat and humidity. This is many peoples favorite time of year. I can see why. I, on the other hand, love being outside on any given day or time of year; especially early in the morning. And when I am unable to I can get discouraged.
