Spring high school sports are coming to an end this season, which means only one thing…playoff time!
The playoffs start Friday, May 10th. It looks like East Rutherford and R-S Central baseball will be the two seeds in the SMAC this season. East earned the final 2A spot and Central gets the second 3A spot of three.
It’s definitely the place to be, Saturday, May 4th the 41st annual Mayfest is being held in Rutherfordton. It begins at 8:30 a.m. and lasts until 5 p.m. Block after block from the top of the hill all down Main Street there are fun and games, meet and greet, and plenty to see, buy and eat. There’s plenty of activity on the side streets also. This event keeps getting better and bigger. Let’s simply say, it’s a gigantic family fun day!

Do you listen to life at work?
A young executive had a long flight home one Sunday. He thought about where he wanted to go in life and about dealing with some frustrations at work.
Well, he came down with a sinus infection on Tuesday but had to go in to work for more training. The training lasted through Thursday and his sinus infection kept getting worse as the week wore on. So he told his boss after Thursday’s training that he had to work from home on Friday.
Well, the boss called the young executive later that night at home and told him he absolutely had to be at a meeting at 9AM the next day. You know how the young executive felt about his job then…
…until he walked in the next morning and was awarded the Employee of the Year, the company’s first-ever such award.

I was pressing to get on these two gobblers. I knew since it was the middle of the season and the first thing in the morning that after they flew off the roost the gobbling would end. So I chose to gamble a little and get in their bedroom. Since it was already breaking day, I knew I had the chance of being seen. I was right. But fortunately I was only seen by two hens that were roosted just above my set-up. They shortly flew away from me and more importantly, away from the two gobblers who were only about seventy-five yards away. After the hens left, I softly called to see if the toms were still interested, and they were. They responded loud and clear. A little later they flew down and never offered to gobble again. But I was close enough to see them when they landed. After a little coaxing, a dead tom lay at my feet.
