They’ve done it! Three months and 31 games later, the Lady Cavaliers of East Rutherford (27-4) have won the 2A State Softball Title.
Saturday’s championship bout, didn’t come easy after a tense 2-1 Game 1 victory on Friday. Jordan-Matthews came back from a 3-0 deficit in Game 2 to take a 4-3 decision, which set up a series deciding Game 3, three hours later.
Summer is here and kids are out of school. It’s that time of year for funtime! There is no place better than Rutherford County to have a great summer. How lucky we are. While other areas have to travel some distance and try to figure out where to go and what to do, we have it all here in Rutherford County, possibly “the world’s best play ground!”.

Do you feel ridiculous sometimes?
My wife and I went shopping when we were in Maui. She loved a bracelet we saw but decided not to get it. So we left the shop, I sat down on a bench, told her to go ahead and I’d catch up. I slipped back in the shop, and bought the bracelet as a Christmas present. The associate put it in a small, red satin bag which I hid until we returned home, then put it in my dresser.
Well, six months later, I cleaned out that dresser, found the red satin bag, opened it, and took out the bracelet. But I couldn’t remember who I bought it for or when. So I called my wife over, opened the bag, showed her the bracelet, and said, “Who’s this for?”
She gasped and squealed and said, “You got me the bracelet from Maui!” and then I remembered everything.
“Yes, I did,” I said, feeling ridiculous. But she didn’t care I’d forgotten.
No matter how ridiculous you feel, remind yourself that you’re okay. No matter how much you’ve forgotten life’s presents, just listen to your life and make a positive life, not just a living.

July will mark my eleventh year of doing this column. It has been a very satisfying and life-altering period of time. It all started when I bought an ad in two different newspapers for an event that was taking place. Each individual left my office with my first attempt at Outdoor Truths promising me they would sporadically run the article as space became available. Each paper has carried the column ever since and has only rarely missed putting it in their publication.
