Rutherford Co. Hoops Roundup; Seahawks Dominate Super Bowl

Boys basketball: Thomas Jefferson (13-4, 8-0) still holds onto the Southern Piedmont Conference 1A lead with four games to go. They just beat Pine Lake Prep by 17 in the only game they had of the week. While they do have two big games this week with Lincoln Charter and then they visit Community School of Davidson on Friday, it’s the game at home versus Cherryville that is key on Valentine’s Day.

Region 8 Principal Of The Year, Brad Richardson of Forest City-Dunbar Elementary.
It’s All About The Kids!
 His name is Brad Richardson. He has been married to Carrie for 16 years, and has five children. He graduated from Campbell University and because his grandparents lived close by, to save money, he stayed with them while in college. Brad graduated and became a teacher. His grandfather, Gene Driver was also in education and had a tremendous affect on his grandson. He can be given a lot of credit as to how his grandson has evolved.

Opinion

Listen To Life
Dr. Joey Faucette
Listen To Life

Do you tell stories?

   The most common question I get from emails and as I do speaking engagements is:  “How do you come up with all of those stories?”  And that’s a great question.  I write and record about 260 stories a year.

   I guess there are two short answers:  One is I Listen to my Life and just share what happens.  And the second, based on the first, is I don’t do anything—writing stories, or anything else—in life alone.  I have help everywhere I go and in everything I do.

   I’ve noticed that sharing stories as I Listen to Life sets off a chain reaction of story-telling about positive experiences in other people’s lives.  Folks share their stories with me on my Live Positive blog at www.ListentoLife.org.  Then I get to share their stories with others around the world.

   Ask for help everywhere you go.  Then express yourself about all of the positive assistance you receive.  Tell your stories to anybody who will listen. 

   It’s just one more way to Listen to Life and Live Positive.

Outdoor Truths

Outdoor Truths
   Hilarious! That’s always the only word that comes to mind when I think of Larry’s first golf experience. He was invited to meet his brother-in-law at a golf course while on vacation. They met at the club and proceeded to pay for the round when he was met by a gentleman who had a British accent. With nose slightly pointed to the sky, the gentleman kindly let Larry know that he would not be able to wear his tank top while playing. (I’m already laughing) Larry, stunned, (not only because he was an “Amuricun” and a Tennessean), proceeded to let the gentleman know that he would just purchase one of their shirts. After browsing the selection, he quickly realized that his wife would not be pleased if he took his house payment and used it on one shirt.
