East Rutherford’s boys basketball team made it to the conference finals again and for the second year in a row, lost on road.
It was third time this season falling to Shelby in a heartbreaker after going up by 16 points in the first quarter of the most recent one. The second quarter was tough to watch as Shelby was unbelievably able to get back in the game, trailing just 24-18 at half. Shelby stole the win in the final minutes to eke out a 49-46 result. Last year, East lost to Freedom at R-S Central in the SMAC finals.
The Facebook sculpture created from recycled parts found on the site by Rutherford County’s Tom Elfers.
A heady mix of local and international talent make Facebook’s Forest City data center an innovative and inspiring place to work. A recent video tour of the facility explored the data center’s technical workings. But there’s still more to the culture that drives Facebook’s constant innovation -- from art to cuisine.
Inspiring art plays an important role at all of Facebook’s offices. Western NC’s Gabriel Shaffer has contributed two new pieces to the company’s collection that is significant in both size and vision.

Got any old tools lying around?
Have you ever been rummaging through a drawer and discovered an old tool that you had lost? It could be a screwdriver or a pair of scissors or a hammer. When you find it, a tidal wave of memories comes with it.
Around our house we have a pair of scissors that belonged to my wife’s mother. They’re dull and we don’t use them much, but every time we stumble on them we think of her mom. We also have a ladder that’s kinda dangerous to use—it leans and you have to be careful climbing it. But that ladder belonged to my wife’s dad so every time we use it we remember him.
Have you got any old tools lying around in your emotions? Do you believe the way you did when you were a child—believe that someone will take care of you and feed you? The kind of believing in the impossible that you might have lost as you grew older?
Rummage around within yourself and begin to believe again. Remember the times when you saw the impossible become possible. Believe so that you can make a positive life, not just a living, in a negative world.

I’ve always been a country boy at heart and even though I longed to leave in my high school years, there was something that drew me back to the humble surroundings of my country way of living. It’s not always easy balancing this lifestyle with progress. It almost doesn’t seem right to want a rustic log cabin with a microwave. I want cows and dogs but a big screen T.V. would be nice as well. And I’m sure that even though my wife wants a clothes line in the back yard, she sure couldn’t do without her heavy duty washer and dryer. I want a garden but I’d sure rather plow it with a new John Deere rather than an old mule.
