East Burke’s Larry Clark nearly got the best of East Rutherford on 98 yards rushing, two touchdowns and collecting an interception on defense. However, it was East Rutherford who won the battle of the turnovers (EB 6 and ER 3) as East Rutherford (2-2, 2-0) won their second game in a row, 35-28.
Although, it wasn’t the best played game from the Cavaliers of Rutherford County, they were without the services of quarterback Austin Hollifield and receiver Travis Waldroup-Rodriguez.
On Saturday, September 21st, Henson Building Materials celebrated their Customer Appreciation Day for their loyal customers who have been coming to Henson’s for years...some have been customers for over 40 years. Hundreds of people, a lot of familiar faces, and some new faces, were treated to a BBQ lunch provided by Cox Industries, Henson’s treated wood supplier.
This week I’m taking “That We May Live” cookbook off my shelf. It is the offerings of Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church in Forest City. Now that we have welcomed the Fall Season and with the holidays coming up, I have a taste for pie! There is nothing as good as a homemade pie. So into the kitchen I go in a pie making mode.

Some years ago, jazz musician Harry Connick, Jr. wowed crowds during his concert tour by sending his entire band—except his drummer—off-stage during a really upbeat number. The drummer kept the beat going while Connick went from instrument to instrument and wowed the crowd some more. That’s right, Connick not only could play, but play with excellence every single instrument.
Connick again wowed the crowds some years later, but in a different way this time. When it came to the point in the concert where he previously played all the instruments, this time he enthusiastically shouted out the names—one by one—of his band members and let them have at it. And he—get this now—stepped off-stage out of the bright lights and cheered each one on. He took a step back into the shadows and clapped for the team.
Do you try to play all the instruments at work, or at home, wanting all the glory and to be a one-person band? Or, do you step back and applaud the team? Be humble as you Live Positive today.

My hunting vehicle is a 1995 Nissan Pathfinder. For the past 3 or 4 years I have been thinking how that anytime, it is going to bite the dust. I am the second owner. Its first owner totaled it in a wreck years ago and I bought it from the insurance company. It was salvageable so it became my son’s first vehicle. Many of the cosmetic parts that should have been replaced were simply beaten back into submission. We only fixed or replaced that which was absolutely necessary for it to run safely. After a few years of good service, my son moved into a car (not literally, but I thought about it sometimes) and I made the Pathfinder a full-time hunting and fishing vehicle. Since that time it has eaten 2 transmissions and was “retotaled” when a deer ran in front of it.
