Just eleven races are left before the Nextel Cup Playoffs as called “The Chase”. So, this week, here is my look on the top 15 and notables. Note: The top ten spots go to highest in points and the final two are wildcards by way of wins and in the top 20 of points to make up the 12 team field.
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.

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.

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.
