Last year, it was Chase who carried Rutherford County into the second round of the playoff on the gridiron. This year, not one team could do so from “Small Town Friendly.” Thomas Jefferson, Chase and East Rutherford were all close to heading to another week of high school football though.
The biggest surprise may have been the Thomas Jefferson Gryphons. The Gryphons started out 6-0 this year, but fell in six straight games to end the season. Rosman, who TJCA defeated earlier in the year avenged that loss with a 26-14 win this past Friday.
Ayden Cole was four years old on March 1st. He is the older of two boys in the Cole family. His three year old brother is Jackson and Ayden’s parents are Joey and Stephanie Cole. On August 29th, Ayden was taken to the hospital because he kept complaining about stomach pains. The initial reaction was that he may have appendicitis. However, that was not the cause.
Working with local non-profits such as the United Way and Rutherford Housing Partnership, several members of the Forest City Owls front office volunteered for Rutherford County’s Annual Week of Caring.
From October 20th-27th, businesses and locals have the opportunity to volunteer and help those who are in need with everything from home remodeling and painting, to building handicap ramps and performing yard maintenance.
L. D. Peeler Inventor/Cheerwine
It was introduced in 1917. Cheerwine began in the basement of L. D. Peeler in Salisbury, N.C. To this day it is the oldest continuing soft drink company still run by the same family. When the Maysville Syrup Company went bankrupt in 1917, L. D. Peeler and other invested businessmen moved the company to North Carolina and renamed it the Carolina Beverage Corporation.

Her cookbook, now in its third printing, is a 296 page treasure of all good things to eat.

Why are we all in such a hurry?
Have you noticed that all of us seem to be in a hurry all the time? I’m not exactly sure where we’re all going or if we even know, but we sure are in a hurry all the time, aren’t we? Maybe we’re all hurrying to make a living. But don’t you just love it when you get to slow down a little and make a life?

I really love this time of year. The areas that have a lot of deer hunters seem to always try to accommodate this crazy couple of weeks. Even mommas who are normally more about cleanliness are excited to see their little boy or girl come home with a little blood on them from a successful morning. I have heard of places where school is closed during the first week of rifle season and I have personally witnessed every hotel room in a Days Inn in Kentucky being occupied with hunters. I can still picture the parking lot full of trucks, trailers, four wheelers, and deer. The weirdest thing however was watching hunter after hunter waltz throughout the lobby and down the halls with their rifle in tow and garnished with blaze orange. Think with me just a second though……….
