Prep hoops roundup
East Rutherford’s boys (12-3, 8-1) and girls swept the two games they played this week. The Cavalier boys on a roll as they have picked seven straight wins and hold second in the SMAC behind Shelby. They possibly host Veritas on Thursday (Jan. 23) and go to Burns (Jan. 28) followed by huge game at Shelby on the Friday (Jan. 31).
It is most unfortunate that we have no photos or pictures or Griffith Rutherford and only have conflicting reports on the circumstances which relate on when he came to America. Little is known about the man who would become a hero to all of us. Some reports say he was born in Northern Ireland in 1721, others claim it was 1731. His grave marker at his final resting place uses 1721. It is said he was born in Ireland to John and Elizabeth Griffith Rutherford.

Do you play Scrabble?
Recently I got an email from a friend who enjoys Scrabble, giving me some examples of how you can rearrange the letters of certain words to form other words. For instance, when you rearrange the letters of “dormitory,” you get “dirty room.” And when you rearrange the letters of “the Morse code,” you get “here come dots.” Pretty cool, eh?
And the word, “desperation” becomes “a rope ends it” when you change the lettering around. Did you know “animosity” rearranges into “is no amity?” And “snooze alarms” becomes “Alas! No more Z’s.” “A decimal point” rearranges into “I’m a dot in place.” “Eleven plus two” changes into “twelve plus one.” “Mother-in-law” scrambles into “woman Hitler.” And “slot machines” scrambled around is “cash lost in me.”
Life gets rearranged a lot, doesn’t it? Well, no matter how you spell it, “positive” can’t spell “negative” even when you’re rearranged, so listen to life today and make a positive life.

Once again, the deer season is coming to a close. I always hesitate to write that it is completely finished this time of year because the Deep South is still in full rut. The rest of us, however, have traded our rifles for shotguns or fishing rods. This season has forced me to make a change for next year. In Kentucky, the bears have caused a major shift in the numbers and movement of deer where I hunt. I have watched this slowly occurring for the past several years hoping something would curtail this change. But it looks like I will be the one to change. I have had to do this before.
