It’s in the playoffs where teams get one chance to see who is the better team, but in the South Mountain Athletic Conference, East Rutherford and Shelby will soon meet again.
The initial meeting between two of the best varsity boys basketball teams in the state among the 2A ranks went to Shelby last Friday in a packed “Jungle Gym“. There easily could be three more opportunities of a East-Shelby rematch.

Monday, January 21, 2013 was a very special day. It was a day that celebrated both Martin Luther King, Jr. and the second inauguration of President Barack Obama. The President took his oath of office as he placed his hand on not one, but two Bibles. One was Abraham Lincoln's Bible and the other that of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It was very symbolic of a dream realized. The inauguration coincided with the celebration of MLK, Jr. Day and it proved to be a very special one.
It’s never too early to open your little ones’ eyes to the natural world.

How are you transforming life?
A journalist was assigned the Lebanon beat. Walking through the bombed-out streets of Beirut one day, he heard some beautiful music coming from a doorway. He wandered over to where the music was being played and there saw a young boy playing a flute.
Several years ago it was not unusual to make one or two trips per week to wade the Cherokee Lake. Late winter always proved to hold enough of the bass variety to keep me fishing even in the most extreme conditions. These trips usually only lasted about half of the day and since I kept my equipment in my truck, I only needed a short notice and a good excuse. I can remember one day arriving at a favorite spot in the mid afternoon. It was cold and blustery. Even though I had dressed warm the cold air was blowing hard in my face. It was a headwind that was so strong, casting was difficult. I fought the circumstances for about an hour before I gave in and decided to go elsewhere.
