A Celebration Of Survival!
A Celebration Of Survival!

Two years ago, the Forest City Owls began a special “pink out” ball game salute for cancer at McNair Field. The color pink dominated the game. It was another example of the Owls continuing commitment to be involved in the community. 

    On Saturday, June 15, McNair Field was decorated in pink in honor of breast cancer and everything was about saluting cancer survivors and raising money for a cure. A silent auction at the ballpark produced funds that went directly to the Rutherford County Cancer Society.

Rutherford Weekly's Favorite Readers Recipes 6/20/13
Rutherford Weekly's Favorite Readers Recipes 6/20/13
This week I’m visiting our good neighbors right next to us. We have “Good Eats from Buck Creek” in Chesnee, South Carolina.
What a great cookbook that everyone should have. The church was established in 1779, three years after we declared our independence. The church met in a brush arbor only a few hundred yards from where the deer roamed and fed.  Thus the name was taken for the church - Buck Creek!

Are you being recycled?

   A friend of mine started a business that recycled wood.  That is, he would buy old barns, beams and rafters out of old textile mills, and old wood out of other buildings, and craft it into lots of wonderful, one-of-a-kind products.  For instance, wood flooring and paneling, and he even made furniture out of this old wood.

   Now you and I drive right by some of these places where he got his wood.  Old barns out in the country, barns that are falling down.  Dilapidated factories that companies abandoned long ago.  Sure, they were handsome in their day, but now they’re just old.

Outdoor Truths

Outdoor Truths
   I have yet to engage in some serious river fishing this spring. I have been especially busy and it will be at least 2 more weeks until I can jump in my little boat and float down the river. That doesn’t mean that my outdoor activities have stopped; only the ones that involve fish and game. My garden still needs tending and thankfully I am able to do a little cycling with some friends and see some new scenery.
