It was one of those nights, as it will be recalled as “That’s the night the lights went out in Bostic!”
Last Friday, Chase went to East Rutherford and they were tied at 7 by half. However, the lights went out in and around the stadium in the third quarter. There was still barely enough light to play, but East Rutherford scored off four Chase turnovers in the second half to prevail 31-17.

This past Monday, November 11th, we took time out to remember. It is a special day every year in which we salute our veteran’s, both past and present.
This day began after World War I, known at the time as “The Great War”. It officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed oh June 28, 1919 in the Palace of Versailles outside of the town in France.

On Saturday, November 9th, Forest City showed it’s endearing pride to one of its own. A statue in front of the Cool Spring Gymnasium on West Main Street was dedicated and presented for all to see. The statue was a beautiful depiction of Forrest Harrill “Smoky” Burgess born in Caroleen, Rutherford County, North Carolina.

Are you experiencing life?
When I was in radio broadcasting, I was asked to do some pretty off-the-wall kinds of things. But probably the strangest request I ever received and, being the dutiful employee that I was ever did, was to attempt to do play-by-play commentary of a July 4th fireworks display.
Now I know it sounds crazy, but that was the assignment. I set up my equipment at a local July 4th celebration and did a live broadcast. I interviewed local persons enjoying the festivities. I gave away records, T-shirts, and bumper stickers.
Everything was going fine until it got dark enough for the fireworks display. And then I knew I was stuck. I described the “bombs bursting in air” the best I could, but I remember saying, “That was so beautiful, I can’t describe it. You just had to be here to experience it.”
You know, there are lots of times in life that you just have to be there to experience it. You can’t describe how beautiful life is. So get up and experience life today. Be here! And as you do, listen to life and make a positive life, not just a living.

While November usually can’t compare to the colder days of January and February, it can still get really cold. But if one is to have the best opportunity at a big buck, he has to get out in it. He just better be prepared. What I have noticed over the years, however, is that I seem to manage the cold pretty well, but what I am never ready for is the wind that may accompany those cold temperatures. I had rather hunt in 20 degree weather with no wind than 30 degree weather with the wind. And no matter what the weather lady says the wind chill is, it is always colder than her predictions. When I hunt in the Midwest, it is especially bad.
