With just 10 cars in 1991, Hot Nights & Cool Rides began in Forest City. It was a presentation of the Forest City Merchants Association. Now 22 years later, over 400 cars will come from all over to vie for top prizes. It is now called the biggest and best car show in the Southeast.
On Friday, August 16th from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. there will be early registration at the car show headquarters, 108 East Main Street, Forest City. On Friday there will be three bands playing at three downtown restaurants beginning at 6 p.m (The Brewhouse, Forest City Diner and Lane’s BBQ).
We are just one week away from week one of the official high school football slate of games to begin. However, tonight is the Rutherford County Football Jamboree on Thursday, August 15. If the scrimmage were to be rained out, they will try again Friday.

Do you run?
Among the 40 or so family members I enjoyed time with at the beach were some babies. Now hopefully my wife and I are not eligible for birthing babies because that’s best done by younger people with more energy and less understanding of why some species eat their young. But seriously, I love babies, enjoyed being one myself, and our two daughters when they were younger.
So I took advantage of being around these babies at the beach, glad to play with them and return them to their parents with dirty diapers. One little guy seemed particularly happy just to run. He ran back and forth, back and forth with this huge, face-splitting smile, squealing as if he was the one who discovered running in the first place, and wondering why no one else was.
I decided the little guy knows a lot about listening to life. Rather than getting all excited because the new iPad is out now and you don’t have to camp out to get one, be like this baby and try just running a little this week. You’ll be amazed by the little things as you live positive and work positive.

I’ve got one more bass fishing trip in store before I turn into a deer hunter. My friends love hunting season because they now have the lake to themselves. They will enjoy some of the best fishing of the year when the weather turns a little colder. As for me, I’ll trade a bent rod for a bent bow. But it’s not always been this way. My early adult years were spent almost exclusively fishing. I threw a plastic worm in the spring and summer, and a Rat-l-Trap and Rooster Tail in the fall and winter.
