The first five minutes dictated how last Friday’s meeting with Freedom was going to go. East Rutherford mens hoops team beat Freedom 74-55 in 32 minutes of havoc. Honestly, when opponents play East, especially at East, they better be ready to face a daunting full throttle game.
“Usually when you practice well, you play well and we did so last week.” East Rutherford basketball coach Brad Levine said. “We shared the ball, hit the boards, which led to good transition play on our part.”

Got a guide?
A friend of mine went rock climbing. He emailed me some pictures from his adventure. One shot was from the bottom of the rock he climbed, looking straight up a sheer face that was really tall. Several others were from various places along the way.
I asked him, “How did you climb straight up like that?”
He said, “The guy I climbed with is experienced. He had all the safety ropes in place so there was virtually no way to get hurt if you did what he told you. He said to relax and climb on up so I did.”
My friend went on to say, “And it was a real confidence booster for me because if I can climb a rock like that, then I can do lots of other things I’ve never done.”
Are you Listening to Life with my friend? He had a guide. He relaxed and climbed on up. He did something he wasn’t sure he could and is more confident.
Today find your guide. It’s a key to Conceive a Live Positive lifestyle. Relax and climb on up your life’s challenge. Do something you’re not sure about and grow confident as you Listen to Life and Live Positive.

One of the wildlife success stories in my area is the reintroduction of the elk. While Tennessee is coming along more slowly, Kentucky now has a heard of over 10,000 and last year over 800 tags were issued to hunters. And there is over a 90% success rate for those hunters. Today Kentucky has the largest elk herd east of the Rocky Mountains. Now that is what I call success. And what makes this even more amazing to me is the fact that this reintroduction took place less than 15 years ago.
A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of helping to guide a friend in harvesting a big healthy cow. This was a first for me and him. It was an unbelievable experience and one that has excited me for the possibilities of next year.
