Here we are! Week 1 of high school football starts this Friday, August 22. All games are a 7:30 kickoff. Below are some players to watch tonight and what your team will need to do in order to find victory.
We hear about it often. It seems very often. The Red Cross needing blood donors. Even now the Red Cross continues to have an urgent need for blood and platelet donations. Even though recently the Red Cross saw a 7.5 percent increase in the number of blood donors which resulted in 11,800 additional donations beyond what was anticipated, the need remains urgent due to the increased demand.
Join us to honor Miss. Paisley Haynes and to raise money for Relay For Life of Rutherford County!
A New & Unique Business Opens In Forest City
Dr. Joey Faucette
Is your light on?
Do you remember the first jigsaw puzzle you tried to put together? You probably sat down with a parent or older sibling or maybe even a grandparent and stared at all of those pieces. You wondered to yourself, “How in the world are we going to get all of these tiny pieces to fit together and make that picture?”
I mean, the task seemed impossible, didn’t it?
But then your friend or family member gave you the secret to putting together jigsaw puzzles: Find all of the pieces with straight edges, the outside pieces, and put them in a pile. Put them together first, the four sides to the puzzle, and then you can begin to fill in according to colors.
It was like a light came on! Rather than trying to figure out how to put a million pieces together all at once, you had a manageable task with insider information that gave you key to success.
Today, when you’re overwhelmed by an enormous task, ask someone to show you one part that you can do immediately and well. Watch the light come on for you as you listen to life and live positive and work positive today.

One of the tools of those who love the outdoors is a knife. There has always been something special about getting a new knife. I see that same satisfaction in my son. He owns several and is never unhappy when he receives another. It’s almost a rite of passage when a young man gets his first.
