The biggest test East Rutherford’s boys basketball team faced in this early season came last Tuesday hosting Hunter Huss.
Huss, a legitimate 3A state title contender showed well early, but East Rutherford was outstanding from the second quarter forward to record a huge 85-77 win.
Huss had three kids who could fill it up for 55 of the Husky points and jump out of the gym, yet it wasn’t enough.
At the entrance of the Hospice “Festival Of Trees”, the welcoming display with “Frosty” included four “Remembrance Bears” made by volunteers.
On Thursday, December 6th, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Carolina Event and Conference Center, Hospice of Rutherford County held its 16th annual “Festival Of Trees”.
This years event required four Christmas trees to hold all the ornaments. Ornaments are either “In Memory Of” or “In Honor Of”. Each year a special ornament is designed for the occasion. This year’s ornament design was an open seashell with a pearl inside.

Do you play tic-tac-toe?
I listen to life every chance I can, discovering positivity in all sorts of ways. I recently learned 10 things about life while playing tic-tac-toe. They are:
1. The game is not difficult to play. Life is pretty simple, too.
2. Reduce the complicated to simple steps and you’ll play a lot better. Pick a spot to call your own.
3. Whether you’re the “X” or the “O” doesn’t really matter. We’re all human.

There are about 30 days between the first deer rut and the second one. This second one is when those does cycle back into breeding phase if they were not bred during the first one. The time between these two can provide a little lull in the action. But I have actually found the second rut to be at times more productive than the first; especially if the weather has been cold. It seems the deer become more concentrated in the areas where the food is the most plentiful. When the underbrush dies in the woods, it leaves them having to forage in open fields. And when a doe in heat comes to a field, you can be sure a buck will be close behind. I want to be there waiting on him.
