Red or Blue? Who are you for?
The battle for Rutherford County supremacy on the football field takes place at R-S Central this weekend. East Rutherford, who has won the past three meetings in the rivalry will square off against R-S Central for what maybe the County championship decider.
If R-S Central wins, they are the county champs and if East wins, they will have to beat Chase the following week to collect the title outright. If East won this weekend and Chase the next, it would be a three-way tie which would be decided on the scoring margin.

How’s your pace?
As I travel and speak to business groups and associations, one of the most common questions I get is, “How do you write all of those stories?” These stories are on the radio and in newspapers across the U.S. and on our blog which reaches hundreds of thousands of people in some 50 countries.
My usual response is something like, “Well, I listen to my life and that’s where the stories come from.” Then lots of times there’s a follow-up question: “But how do you write so many?” And that’s a fair question since I write about 260 or so a year.
I always answer, “I write them one at a time.”
You see, if I sat down in front of my blank computer screen with that constantly blinking cursor staring at me, and said, “I’ve got to write 260 stories” I’d never write the first one. I’d be paralyzed, frozen, by such a daunting task.
But just about everyday something happens around me and I jot myself a note about it. Later I sit down and write about that experience and it becomes a story. And pretty soon one story in a blog becomes 260.
Today, just listen to life for your story as you Live Positive and Work Positive in a negative world.

One of my favorite creations in our world is that thing we call a “day.” You know, that 24 hours that comes to an end, only to begin another 24 hours. Now I know it doesn’t take much to intrigue me but this has always been something that I have given thought to. And if you think about it, it is one of the most refreshing things about life.
In hunting or fishing it doesn’t matter what yesterday was like, today is a new day. It doesn’t matter that I never saw a deer yesterday, today will be better.
