Before the North Carolina High School Athletic Association football playoffs begin this season, there is one more game to be decided this weekend, the County Championship.
Chase, who held off East Rutherford last year, will try to defend The Rutherford County Championship on Friday. This time the Trojans host the Cavaliers at Allen Stadium at 7:30 pm.
Here are my keys to the game:
1) Can East Rutherford stop the run?
With curbside pick-up in most of our towns and 10 Convenience Centers scattered outside of city limits, it is easy for all of Rutherford County’s residents to recycle. Sometimes, we just need a little know-how.
If you live in the city. The towns of Ellenboro, Forest City, Ruth and Rutherfordton all have curbside pickup. Businesses and residents are provided a recycling bin that can hold paper, glass bottles and jars, plastic, and aluminum - there is no need to sort your recycling.

When dandelions dot my lawn, I reach for the weed and feed to kill them. But then I remember my daughters picking the little yellow flowers to give to their mother and blowing the downy seeds to make a wish.
When I’m walking around our farm and the wind starts whipping down the mountain, I steel myself against it, sometimes reach up for what’s left of my hair, and grouse if I’m walking up hill about how I wish the wind was blowing in a different direction.

This was one of those mornings where it seemed the deer were everywhere. As soon as the dimmest light shone over the mountains, I had already located a small yearling doe feeding in the acorns beside my stand. Just a few minutes later 2 older doe were filtering across the hill just out of range of my bow. By now my expectations for the day were on high alert. I couldn’t have been more right. For nearly 3 hours I watched deer come and go without ever giving my location away. It was fun…….. except for the moment in the middle of this morning when I shot over the back of a deer. Missed her completely. In fact, she would have had to have been about 18 inches taller for me just to nick her back. It was that bad.
