Chase was the only undefeated football team in Rutherford County last week, but a very powerful Burns team brought the two-game win streak to an abrupt halt.
Burns, the bigger, more explosive team, along with a pretty impressive defense beat Chase 48-9 last week. Chase (2-1, 0-1) was held to two first downs last week, one each half, and never got any sort of a rhythm offensively.
In 1996, a new pastor from Georgia, Scotty Poole of the Little White Country Church in Gilkey, felt the needy of Rutherford County should be helped.
“For I was hungry and you gave me food; I was thirsty and you gave me drink; I was a stranger and you took me in.” (Matthew 25:35).
Pastor Poole’s mother-in-law in Georgia was directing a food ministry. A road trip was in order for members of the Little White Church to learn from her and do the same. In January 1997 the church began “The Neighbors Pantry”.

Do you understand?
Has anybody cut you off in traffic lately? You know, pulled in front of you and made you hit the brakes to avoid an accident? If it hasn’t happened lately, odds are it will if you drive much.
Now when it happened in the past, what did you do? How did you react?
I guess it’s natural for you to yell at the driver, as if he could hear you, right? Or, to blow your horn, more than once maybe, and flash your lights.
But did you stop and wonder, “Why did she do that?”
Maybe she was distracted by something stressful in her life like she can’t pay her mortgage because she was laid off by her company. Or, she’s going home from the doctor’s office after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Or, maybe his wife left him and his best friend, too…and together. Or, maybe he had a shouting match with his teenaged son that morning.
Now I know that person should drive more carefully, but try to understand what might be happening with that person rather than just expressing your displeasure. The same way you want someone to understand you.

The Reverend Charlie William Blackwell, age 85, went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, September 12, 2013.
I’ve always prided myself on trying anything once. Now that doesn’t mean that I throw all caution to the wind and do things like swim with alligators, but generally I’m game for giving something a first shot. This especially goes for food unless its worms, bugs, and slugs. That’s where I draw the line. Over the years I’ve made my way through the lines of many wild game dinners. I’ve eaten everything from turtle to buffalo. I’ve also tasted my share of seafood.
