The high school football season is underway, but the first week led to a draw for Rutherford County.
At R-S Central, there certainly was another nail-biter in the series with McDowell, but the Hilltoppers lost 8-7 at home to open the season.
Matt Atchley led the way with 90 yards rushing, but this one definitely hurts. On a wet field, with sloppy play, everybody was on edge the entire game. On three separate occasions, R-S Central (0-1) gets the ball to the McDowell 39, 20 and 2 with five minutes left to play and unluckily can’t find a way get the winning score.
In February the Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) presented its’ prestigious National Museum Award to Bennett Classics Antique Auto Museum in Forest City.

The Great Smokey Mountain Region, Little Detroit Chapter, which includes 16 Southeast states, selected Bennett for their regional tour.
I am going to salute cooks from Advent Lutheran Church in Spindale this week. They have a cookbook aptly named “ADVENTures in Cooking from the North Carolina Foothills”. A clever title full of great recipes.

Got the power?
My wife and I had just enjoyed a leisurely lunch together, just the two of us, which was nice and unusual. I pulled away from the restaurant and stopped at a traffic light. It was very hot afternoon so the air conditioning felt really nice, until…the car cut off. And wouldn’t restart. Despite my best efforts.
Now I’m not a mechanic, but I listened to the car as I tried to restart it and decided it must be the alternator. And, believe it or not, my mechanic later told me I was right. The alternator produces the electricity for the car, using the battery as a source. When the alternator stops producing, the battery is left to charge the car on its own. It can do that for a while, but then it’s drained completely, leaving the car powerless.
I can relate with that battery, can’t you? I can produce some power to make a positive life for a while, but without help, I find myself drained and powerless. I need someone to be my alternator, to produce some positive power with me. There is real power in conceiving the positive with a partner. So look for your partner today as you make a positive life.

So many times when we think of our outdoor activities we envision an event with a friend or family member. What I was reminded of recently was that for some, the outdoors involves the whole family. Many families love to spend time in a campground or at the lake. Lake houses, houseboats, and campers are a sign that families can play together. I’ve never seen a child who complains about playing in the water for hours on end. I really can’t think of anything that is not positive about putting a lifejacket on a child and letting him or her explore all of the things the lakes have to offer. It’s good for them physically, mentally, and socially, and it even keeps them from becoming Saturday morning couch potatoes and video game junkies.
