The previous week, it was a 4-0 sweep for Rutherford County football, but this past Friday went a lot differently.
R-S Central proved that they could score quickly against Polk, but turnovers literally doomed the Hilltoppers in a 33-12 loss.
If you live in Western Carolina, then there is only one place you need to be on Saturday, September 13th! It’s at Globe Park in Forest City at the annual Snuffy Jenkins Festival. The gates open at 10 a.m. and the non-stop music begins at 11 a.m. and continues showcasing great music until 7 p.m. If you love the music of our land this festival is all about bluegrass music and the close relatives in the acoustic music tradition.
This week I’m depending on the “Favorite Recipes” cookbook from Tanner’s Grove United Methodist Church. The church was established in 1850 and so there are many tried and true recipes in their cookbook.
Squash Casserole • Scalloped Tomtaoes & Artichoke Hearts • Marinated Carrots

Do you have weeds?
Last month, it was unusually hot in the part of the world where I live. So I decided that early morning was the best time to do some outdoor work like pulling weeds and grass out of our flower beds. The temperature was cooler and the humidity lower…and there were no interruptions at 6:00 a.m.
I also discovered that it was a great time to listen to life and pray and meditate. There’s no one around to want anything from me. I’m outdoors which is my favorite place in the world to be. And I’m doing a rather mindless task—pulling weeds and grass out of my rose beds—or at least I thought it was…until as I pulled the weeds and grass, I realized that there were some rogue habits and attitudes growing in the spiritual bed of my heart; a place where I was to cultivate good character traits could be overrun with the bad and ugly. So as I cleaned out weeds, I cleaned out my spirit. I uprooted the negative so the positive could be nourished and grow.
Cultivate your spirit by rooting out the bad and ugly and growing the good as you listen to life and make a positive life, not just a living, in a negative world.

It seems on opening day, all the sights, sounds, touches, and smells are at their highest peak. After being gone from the woods for several months, I am more aware of these things on the first few days of hunting season. I am especially fond of the smells that come through the cool, damp air.
