Dawn and Jerry
His name is Jerry Doty, a married man who lives in Ellenboro with his loving wife Dawn. Jerry is 54 years old and everybody who knows and loves him is hoping for a miracle. His situation is in God’s hands. The reality of his life began on August 22 of last year. He thought he had a case of acid reflex and finally went to the doctor. When he was completely diagnosed, Jerry had cancer - esophageal cancer!
A year ago East Rutherford football mixed up their offense and just had up and down defensive nights. This past Friday, I viewed an East Rutherford team that I’m more familiar in seeing. While they still lost 21-14 to a very good Kings Mountain team, the Cavaliers ran the ball well and did a great job on defense for most of the night.

What is it about babies that we just love so much?
When our first daughter was born, my brother came to visit us. Our daughter was old enough to travel so my brother wanted to take her to the mall on a little shopping trip. You know, the kind of shopping trip where the single uncle spoils his new niece.
So we packed him up and off they went. When he returned several hours later, he said, “People love babies. Everywhere I went, people stopped me and wanted to see her and talk with her.” Being single, he especially liked it when the attractive women stopped him.
What is it about babies that we love? Babies are just so real, so honest, so much themselves. They need something, they let you know. Otherwise, life is great and they smile and coo and play. They’re innocent, not requiring a whole lot that we can’t provide.
Babies really inspire us to do the same, to live a simple life; to enjoy the present moment because babies don’t worry about yesterday or tomorrow.
Live Positive like a baby today as you make a positive life in a negative world.

I think every outdoorsman likes to think he could survive in some extreme conditions or circumstances when others could not. I often give thought to different scenarios when I’m outdoors. I think about what I would do or what supplies I would like to have if I were suddenly stranded. My first thought is a fully equipped camper with satellite TV and the NFL Sunday Ticket along with some gourmet coffee and my wife there to enjoy it all with me.
