It was almost a clean sweep on the football field this past week. A 3-1 mark is outstanding, but it didn’t turn out exactly the way it was expected. Things certainly are heating up for second place among the SMAC 2A teams and a good shot at a playoff berth.
Allie Proctor from R-S Central takes a test dive with Officer Jason Metcalf of the Highway Patrol.
The rain failed to deter the safe driving event in front of Big Lots parking on Thursday, October 17th. “Above The Influence Day 2013” presented by the North Carolina Highway Patrol and United Way’s Youth Council sought to teach teenagers the negative results of driving while impaired. Whether it be drugs, multi tasking, or drunk driving or a combination, the lesson learned was how dangerous and life threatening it could be.
Elevator Reopens at Chimney Rock in Time for Peak Fall Colors

As you’re walking through life, do you look back?
Our older daughter flew to London to study for a semester abroad through her university’s invitation. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for her.
Our family had a rather tearful farewell with her in the airport. The prospect of not seeing her at all for three months was somewhat sad. My wife and younger daughter wanted to wait until she cleared security and customs so we did. We strained our necks and my wife stood in a chair to watch as our daughter’s bags were opened and examined. She went through with no problems of course and having cleared, she walked on towards her gate.
My wife said, “She didn’t even look back and wave good-bye!”
I reminded her, “Honey, she didn’t look back the day she walked into her kindergarten classroom. Why should she start now?”
And you really shouldn’t either. Looking back constantly keeps you from joyfully stepping into a most wonderful future of great adventure.
So keep looking forward into the fantastic new day prepared for you as you Live Positive in this negative world today.

I started the morning sitting in a tree stand. A few weeks ago I had trimmed limbs and opened up some shooting lanes for this new stand placement. I think it is going to be a good one. The cool morning was expected as well as the lingering fog that hovers over the hills, sometimes through the late morning. That was the case on this particular day. As I peered toward the sky just before dawn, I wondered if what I was looking at was clouds instead of the fog. But after a few more minutes I recognized the familiar look and feel of this hazy mist.
