Well, we are down to two teams in the high school basketball playoffs and both are halfway to the goal of becoming state champions in 2014.
East Rutherford boys (21-5) will go to the Greensboro Coliseum on Thursday night (3/6/14) and play last year’s 1A champion North Rowan (19-5) at 7:30pm. North Rowan moved up to 2A after realignment this offseason and have already caught attention as they beat Shelby this past Friday.
Since the Forest City Owls made their debut in 2008, there have been two General Managers. The team has also won two championships and been voted the number one collegiate summer team in the country. We all are indebted to Robert C. McNair, owner of the NFL Houston Texans and native of Forest City, whose generosity made the new baseball stadium, and return of baseball, a possibility. Who of us can ever forget the first game on Thursday, May 29, 2008.

Dr. Joey Faucette
Got an encouraging word?
My Dad had a cornea transplant. I went with him to have the surgery and also to his first follow-up visit.
It’s a fairly painful recovery, with your eye constantly feeling scratchy which makes your head hurt. So by the time that follow-up visit rolled around, my Dad was pretty tired of the whole affair and feeling a little down.
At least that’s how he went into the follow-up visit. But when he came out, he was a new man.
“The doctor said I’ve improved 250% in only two weeks!” he told me. “I’m making great progress.”
My Dad left the doctor’s office a different man than one who came in. He was encouraged.

Rutherfordton, Mr. Jack Poole age 61 went home to be with the Lord on February 27, 2014.
Even though a friend took me on my first turkey hunt, my first kill came while hunting alone. That morning I remember that my tools of the trade amounted to a Lynch box call and a ten gauge H and R shotgun. No slate calls and definitely no mouth calls. I can also remember moving from place to place on this farm without having much confidence. Late in the morning I made my way to an area that was known to hold deer. I crossed a hay field and crawled under a barbed wire fence before giving that box call another go. As soon as I slid the lid of that call across the box, I heard a turkey to my left.
