Both East Rutherford teams had a great season, but the boys and girls fell in heart breakers at regionals this week from Greensboro.
East Rutherford boys led the entire way against North Rowan, but it wouldn’t hold up.
The Cavs fell down by three with under 15 seconds to go and East had two more looks from three, but missed both as the season ended in the Elite Eight of the 2A basketball playoffs.
The annual Forest City Kiwanis pancake breakfast has been going on for 40 years or more. It is the primary fundraiser of the Kiwanis to benefit the community. This year is very special. On January 18, 2014, retired Finance Director of Forest City, Pruett Walden passed away at Duke University Medical Center. Mr. Walden was a member of the Forest City Kiwanis Club with perfect attendance for 40 years. He was past president and also Kiwanian Of The Year. This year the breakfast is named in his honor both as a Kiwanian and his service to the community.

We miss so much in life, don’t we?
When my wife and I vacationed in Maui, we were blessed to ride around the island in a Mustang convertible. The weather was perfect. It rained only about fifteen minutes the whole week so we enjoyed Maui with the top down everywhere we went.
One particular trip was especially memorable. We left early in the morning, ate breakfast on the way, and drove down the infamous “Highway to Heaven,” the road to Hana. This road is mostly switchback turns, one-lane bridges, and picture-postcard scenery that literally takes your breath away.
Since we had the top down, we smelled the orchids blooming in a rain forest, pineapples growing out in the fields, and hundreds of acres of sugar cane being harvested. If we had driven with the top up, we’d have missed all of those wonderful smells and scenes.
Do you drive the twists and turns of your life with the top up? Missing all of the wonderful sights and smells sent your way? Break out of the familiar, put the top down so you don’t miss a thing and live positive.

There’s a lot of fishing going on right now. I’ve heard stories from those catching bass, crappie, and walleye. It is the perfect time of the year for fishermen, no matter what species he is after. And just like other seasons, this one will pass as quickly as it arrived. While you can catch most types of fish all year long, there are certain times that are just better. Now is one of those times. Soon the walleye will move back into the lake, the crappie will slow down, and the bass will find their lethargic summer pattern. Until then the fishing will be fast and furious.
