The battle between red and blue kicked up again at the Palace last Saturday night with East Rutherford men’s basketball team pulling away in the second half to defeat R-S Central, 75-60.
Surprisingly, Shelby fell to a hot shooting Freedom last week and now the Golden Lions and Cavaliers are tied for first in the South Mountain Athletic Conference. East Rutherford is now 13-4, 6-1 overall and host Veritas on Friday.
On the girls side, it took overtime before R-S Central (12-7, 6-1) prevailed. However, East led by 17 until Rachel Camp fouled out and then the Lady Hilltoppers mounted a miraculous fourth quarter comeback. They scored on an inbounds play at the buzzer to send it to overtime and then scored the first eight points in the extra frame to earn the win.
In 1990 Ginger Dancy went to work at Rutherford Regional Hospital (now Rutherford Regional Health System) as the Community Relations Assistant. In 1998 she was made the Director of Volunteer Services supervising 175 adults and, every summer, 100 teen volunteers. Ginger says: “It was so rewarding and every day was different”. Supervising the teens each summer was a way to influence and create future career opportunities in health care.

Where are you sailing off to today?
It’s a great time of year to enjoy a cruise, isn’t it? Lots of us sail off for warmer destinations during the cold months of winter.
At least you’re most likely to get on a cruise ship with a definite destination, aren’t you? One with a map of a route to take you from your port of origin to a place of your choosing? One with a plan of where to stop on which day? One with GPS so the captain knows every minute of the trip where you are on the seven seas?
You’re least likely to get on a cruise ship with no destination, aren’t you? One without a map and no idea of where you’re heading off to? One with no clue as to which day you’ll be where? One with no GPS so the captain has to guess where you are located?
But maybe you do get on a no idea, no clue, no GPS ship and cruise your life? Just kind of bopping along, letting other people tell you what to do.
You have a choice about how and where you sail your life. Connect your GPS with your purpose and make a positive life, not just a living, in a negative world.

Are you obsessed over something? Has something gained your attention in such a way that you have made some drastic changes in order to accommodate that matter? Deer hunters do this all the time.
I was just reliving the past season with a friend. He was telling me about a place where he hunted that was for bow hunters only. One particular evening, just before dark, he saw what he called the “buck of a lifetime” and it was only 60 yards from his stand. And even though he could not get a shot at it, it caused him to almost ignore all the other bucks that came his way; and there were plenty.
