Last Friday was a night Rutherford County football would soon like to forget. Following the games, the County went 0-3 over the weekend.
Two games were close this past weekend and there are two favorable matchups this upcoming Friday (10/3/14).
In Georgia, Thomas Jefferson (3-2) gave Rabun Gap all they could handle, but three turnovers ruined a chance at victory, falling 37-24. The Gryphons put up nearly 400 yards offense as Bradley Freels threw for 284 yards and a touchdown.
It’s only 19.3 square miles in size and has a population of all rural folks totaling 1,773. This is Gilkey, North Carolina, up in Rutherford County. The folks in Gilkey still are good neighbors and love their homeplace. Ye’ Old Gilkey School (1923 to 1999) building is still standing and has become the Gilkey School Community Center and Neighbors Pantry. The building has become a center of activity for everyone in Gilkey. Every third Saturday they still gather in the building for a great breakfast. A community staying in touch is the theme of this place.

Do you take life at face value?
I thought it was just another photo. But then my friend said, “This picture was taken by Aycock Brown.”
Now you may not have heard of Aycock Brown, but he’s a wonderful photographer who has shot a lot of pictures around Kitty Hawk, North Carolina where a hundred years ago, the Wright Brothers launched the first powered flight by man. So my friend describes this photo by Aycock Brown as featuring the Wright Brothers Memorial, which stands up on a ridge, with the moon in the background.
And I’m thinking to myself, “Well, that sounds nice, but nothing spectacular.” Then my friend says, “Aycock Brown took a radio out with him that night. And that picture was taken at the exact moment that Neil Armstrong stepped onto the surface of the moon and said, ‘One small step for man; one giant leap for mankind.”
At face value, the photo was just another nice one. But knowing the whole story made it significant.
Listen to your life today for the whole story so you can make a positive life, not just a living.

Have you ever wondered about wonder? I mean have you ever thought why you attribute a beauty or awe to certain things? Have you ever been amazed how a large tree can grow from the tiniest crack in a massive rock? Have you ever been rapt by a sunset, a blanket of fog, or ridge of mountains in the fall? I know you have. And I also know you’re beginning to think I’m spending too much time in a tree stand, bored from not seeing deer. Not yet, but I can say this. Deer hunters are people who get to see some of the greatest wonders of earth.
