Still gearing up for high school football? This past week was the first official practice and all teams seem to be glad about being back on the football field. The Rutherford Weekly caught up with the coaches after the first practice and here is what they had to say.
At R-S Central, Mike Cheek begins his 11th season as the Hilltoppers head coach. They have 11 starters returning (3 offense/8 on defense), which isn’t half bad for the boys in blue and white.
Each year on the Fourth of July, we celebrate our nation’s independence with camping trips, cookouts, barbecues, and fireworks. We celebrate freedom. This year was no different for most, but for Run Against Addiction’s Angie Sanford and her daughter Ayla, this year’s Fourth of July celebration took on a whole new meaning.

Can your little kid come out to play?
I had been working particularly long, intensive hours for several weeks in a row. I was tired beyond what a good night’s sleep can recover. So I decided it was time to invite “little Joey,” my inner child, out to play to keep me from becoming a dull boy.
Now “little Joey” is always ready to come out to play. This particular day I decided to make a list of fun things I did when I was a kid and do some of them. So I wrote my list and it went something like this:
1. Go fishing.
2. Walk a dog.
3. Hang on monkey bars.
4. Skip rocks across a pond.
5. Kick a can.
6. Catch a frog.
That day, I decided to walk our yellow Lab, Jake, and not only did we walk, but we wrestled around in the backyard and threw the ball and played with the water hose. It was great!
So how often does your inner child get to come out and play? You were created to do something besides work all the time; to play and enjoy the world around you, too. So invite your little kid to come out and play as you listen to life and Work Positive today!

I had watched several bucks from the safe confines of a barn. They came out each evening and fed in a field that had only been planted about a month prior. Of the five bucks that were pretty consistent, there was one ten pointer that I kept my eye on even though he was not much bigger than one of the large six-pointers. When the season opened, I sat in my stand for two afternoons in a row only to watch the deer stay several yards below the reach of my bow.
