Owls Doing Well, Post 423 is Done For Season

Well, there is good news and bad news concerning baseball in Rutherford County. 

The Forest City Owls have won six of their eight games and sit third overall in the Western Division of the Coastal Plain League. While (17-11), the Owls must turn to the second half of the season as they finished a game and a half out of first in the West standings. Thus, they must keep winning to earn a playoff berth. They can get it two way. One, win the second half of the season in the West or hold one of the highest win percentages when the regular season has concluded among the top four in the Division. Still 28 games to go and anything can happen.

Fun Starts At The Top Of The Hill In Rutherfordton July 4th!

 The biggest and most fun filled event for the patriotic July 4th celebration in all of Rutherford County will be held in Rutherfordton on Friday. The fun begins at 10 A.M.

As we all know, Independence Day commonly known as the fourth of July, is a federal holiday in our country commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. It was then that we declared our independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. This special day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions and political speeches and ceremonies. It’s all about who we are, where we came from, and how. It’s America’s birthday!

What ranks highest with you?

   After Pearl Harbor, General Theodore Roosevelt was flying on a plane and seats were hard to come by.  At a stop, priority was served on a very young sailor, but he wouldn’t get off the plane.  “I want to see my mother,” he said.

   “Sorry son,” the ticket agent said, “There’s a war on, you know.”

   Having heard all of this, General Roosevelt stepped up to the counter and said, “Give him my seat.  I’ll take a later plane.”

   A friend of Roosevelt’s walked up, having heard him give up his seat, and said, “Teddy, nobody is going to believe this when I tell it.  Aren’t you in a hurry, too?”

   And General Roosevelt said, “It’s a matter of rank.  I’m only a general.  He’s a son.”

   I guess respecting someone else’s rank depends on who’s doing the ranking, doesn’t it?  Some ranks are just more important than others and not necessarily the ones we think of.  Family ranks highest.

   As you make a positive life today, what ranks highest with you?

Outdoor Truths

Outdoor Truths
     This time of year deer are craving salt and other minerals. The bucks need this during the time when their antlers are growing and they will literally eat the dirt if it contains traces of these raw materials. I have also seen huge holes dug deep in the ground where the deer have pawed and scratched day after day in order to reach any remnants that may be left. But it all happens within a small window of time. In fact, while they may dig for one small morsel in the spring and summer, they won’t even smell a salt block in the late fall and winter seasons.
