East Rutherford Softball Goes For State Title!
Most coaches and media in the area felt like East Rutherford’s softball team should at least win the conference this season, but as the season progressed, we all started to see that they could make a run at state too. Three months later, East Rutherford (25-3) has made it to 2A State Championship Series.

For Landyn It Was Very Special!

Tuesday, May 27th was the opening day of the 2014 Forest City Owls baseball season. It was a special day, but a super young man named Landyn Johnson made it extra special, a triumph of life! This is his story, an inspiration for everyone.

Landyn is now 10 years old. When I first met him he was just 3. It was at a fundraiser at Ellenboro Elementary School. The fundraiser was for a person that had cancer, Landyn Johnson!

Rutherford Weekly's Favorite Readers Recipe 6/5/2014
Rutherford Weekly's Favorite Readers Recipe 6/5/2014
To me, there is nothing better than a meat loaf sandwich with ketchup. Growing up it was a favorite to take to a school lunch and even now I’ll make a meat loaf just so I can have a great sandwich to take to work or at home for a snack. Yes, it’s that good. Let’s get started with this weeks selections and of course, it will be meat loaf. Off the shelf comes “Forward by Faith” cookbook from Ellenboro’s Bethel Baptist Church.

Listen To Life

Listen To Life

Are you aging today?

I was thinking about aging the other day.  It seems to me that we want to live to be 100 years old, but none of us want to look it.  We want to be 100, but look 25.  So we rub lotions and potions on our wrinkles to hide them.  And when we can’t hide them, we inject them with botox.  And when that doesn’t work, we nip, tuck, lift, and pull. 

And what about our hair and teeth?  We don’t want our hair to turn white, but we can’t get our teeth white enough.   So we put stuff on our hair to keep the white covered up and stuff on our teeth to bleach the brown.  We want our teeth white and our hair dark. 

Sure, all of our bodies age from the moment we’re born—we change—but what about our inner appearances?  What kind of shape is your mind in?  Do you focus on the positive experiences each day?  Do you filter for the positive, only allowing those thoughts to pass through?

Outdoor Truths

Outdoor Truths
   One of my most enjoyable outdoor experiences as a kid was swimming at our local community pool. As far back as I can remember, my summers were spent either at the baseball field or at the pool and both were within one block of each other. I lived about two miles from this area but it was well within the allowed distance for my bicycle. Even as a ten or eleven year old I was making this trip several times a week.
