Coming Up: Daytona 500 And High School Basketball Playoffs

This weekend is the Daytona 500!!! 

Predicting what will happen at Daytona is always tough. Most of the cars are fairly equal, so it comes down to who can draft with who, block and navigate traffic the best. Well, there also is the fact of when to make that final move to grab NASCAR’s most sought after race.

So here is how I see it this weekend. The duel qualifying races are first and Thursday night at 7pm.

It’s a program that everyone in Rutherford County needs to be aware of so they can help family and friends who may be in need. In late 1990 the R.U.OK? program was implemented. The program is designed for seniors, anyone living alone, or  individuals who may need assistance when the unexpected happens.

Rutherford Weekly's Favorite Readers Recipe 2/20/2014
Rutherford Weekly's Favorite Readers Recipe 2/20/2014
I just love pound cake. It really is my favorite cake. Simple, moist pound cake always warm and friendly. As a consequence I’m highlighting pound cake recipes this week. I’ve found some really good recipes in our neighbors cookbook, “Good Eats from Buck Creek”. Buck Creek Baptist Church is in Chesnee, South Carolina. Their cookbook is awesome! You need to get or give a copy for family and friends. This cookbook would make a great gift for a new bride.

How’s your stress level?

   Have you ever finally gotten home from a stressful day at work only to realize, “Hey!  I forgot to pick up the laundry!” or a roast for dinner or the kids from school?  Ever wonder why you sit down to take a big test and can’t remember anything you studied?  And why you get on stage and can’t find your lines anywhere in your head?  Well, now there’s a scientific explanation—stress makes you forgetful.

   The journal Science reports that stressful situations over which you have no control activate the PKC enzyme.  This enzyme impairs short-term memory and other functions in the prefrontal cortex.

   You know, every week confronts us with these kinds of situations.  Life is filled with “technical difficulties beyond our control.”  So how can you cope?

   Take a few deep breaths to relax.  Remind yourself of what you can control in the situation.  Then seek the strength to change those things you can, accept those you can’t, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Outdoor Truths

Outdoor Truths
   The bass fishing tournaments are getting ready to start with a vengeance. Once they begin, each weekend will offer another opportunity to fish for money. All bass tournaments have pretty much the same rules; two fishermen; one boat; the five biggest fish by weight, win. Some men will literally come to blows in pursuing first prize. And first prize can be worth lots of money even in the smaller tournaments. As I have said before these types of events touch both the competitive and outdoorsy side of men. It’s enough fun to fish but add in beating somebody in the process and winning cash to do it, makes it an addictive potion.
