To many, October means Halloween and Trick or Treating. However, in Rutherford County, particularly in Rutherfordton, our county seat, it’s all about the annual Hilltop Fall Festival. It started in 1971 and seems to get better every year. It now encompasses block after block of fun, good eats, crafts people, contests and educational events. The fun and games begin at 8:30am on Main Street in Rutherfordton!
The county champs of one year ago on the gridiron will have the chance to defend that title later on this season. Chase, behind the effort of Josh Wright and company pushed by R-S Central at The Palace last Friday, 21-14 in overtime.
Wright tied for the 17th most carries in a single game according to the NCHSAA record book with 41 totes for 224 yards and two touchdowns.

I was determined to locate a good place to put my tree stand, away from any other hunter. I was hunting on private property but others hunt there as well. It’s large enough for several people, but I wanted to make sure that I was far off the beaten path. I was willing to climb, crawl, and creep until I had found my “promised land.” I loaded my lock-on tree stand and my stacking sticks on my back and headed up the mountain. The first 300 yards were almost straight up the hill with an occasional bend. I knew that most hunters would be unwilling even to go to these extremes.
