I bet the gym will be packed at East Rutherford on Friday, December 20. It’s East Rutherford (4-1, 2-0) versus Shelby (5-1, 3-0) to see who can obtain the early SMAC standings lead on the boys side of the equation.
Despite East Rutherford leading at the end of eight of those quarters, Shelby won all four meetings last year.
A community meeting was held Thursday, December 12, 7pm in the Library Auditorium at Isothermal Community College. Over 70 people attended the first community meeting to learn what we can do immediately to stop the killing of animals in Rutherford County. The second meeting was to introduce new attendees to the goals and bring everyone up to date on efforts to adopt the No-Kill Equation to reduce or stop the killing of animals in Rutherford County.
The holidays always seem to mean a great time for good homemade cooking. One of our favorites is Sweet Potato Casserole. That is what I’m going to start with this week. I’m opening the always reliable Ellenboro Bethel Baptist Churches cookbook, “Forward by Faith”.

How’s your attitude?
A friend was learning to fly. You are required to wear blinders when you are learning so that you are trained in how to look only at the instruments on your dash, not at the airspace around you.
He was given an order to increase his altitude to so many thousands of feet, which he began doing. All of a sudden, the instructor yanked the blinders off of my friend and said, “You were so concerned about your altitude, but now look at your attitude!”

We all like to be identified with certain things. Some people will drive nothing but a Ford – except for the Chevy guys who think Ford stands for Fix Or Repair Daily. Bow hunters are notorious for this as well. There are PSE people (like me) and there are others who will own nothing but a Mathews, Hoyt, Bear, or some other brand. In sports we have our favorite team. Where I live, one is either a Kentucky or Tennessee fan. When our team loses, we take it hard. It’s not any team; it’s our team. We lost. We’ll come back. We were robbed. Our identity comes with ownership
