Chimney Rock’s panoramic 75-mile views capture the full spectrum of Western North Carolina’s legendary fall foliage, and it’s getting easier to know when to catch it at the peak. Weekly fall color and wildflower reports are available at chimneyrockpark.com to help you know where and when to find the best color. Peak fall colors are expected to appear in Chimney Rock and Lake Lure between mid-October and early November.
On Saturday, September 27th the Rutherford Hospital School of Nursing (RHSN) class of 1964 held its 50th class reunion at Rutherford Regional Medical Center. Of the 15 classmates who graduated, 11 were in attendance for the day’s events.
The day’s events started in the morning at the Saint Luke’s Chapel located on the hospital grounds for a special “In-Memoriam” celebration. The group took time to remember and to offer prayer and thanks for their past teachers, friends, doctors, staff, patients, and others who were an integral part of their lives during their three years at Rutherford Hospital (1961-1964). As part of this remembrance the ladies enjoyed an opportunity to sing songs and play the organ as they had during their years at the hospital.
Chase certainly made things tough, but round one of the Rutherford County football championship goes to R-S Central.
While R-S Central on paper had the advantage coming into the contest, it became a test of two defenses that stood out as the Hilltoppers hosted Chase last Friday.
This week I’m going to pick up “Pleasures from the Good Earth” cookbook from the good folks at Big Springs Baptist Church. It’s chock full of tried and true recipes. So into the kitchen I go.

Autumn Yard Work Gone ‘Green’
Dr. Joey Faucette
Do your plans always work out?
A friend of mine moved. The movers arrived with her stuff at her new home. They brought in all of her furniture and put it where she asked them. They set up her beds and placed the mattress and box springs just right. Then they started bringing in boxes. Being the organized person that she is, she asked them to put the boxes in the rooms they had come from in her previous home—you know, dining room stuff in the dining room. Well, the movers looked kinda sheepish and said, “Lady, we don’t know what came from where. We didn’t label the boxes.”
Well, at first, she got angry, thinking about all the wasted time she’d spend walking from room to room. But after the movers left, she said, it was kinda fun, almost like Christmas, opening up boxes not knowing what was in each one.
Things don’t always go like we plan them, do they? The next time something doesn’t go the way you wanted, remember my friend and just think “Christmas.” You can have some fun even when things don’t go the way you plan by listening to life today and making a positive life, not just a living.
The leaves are changing color and are beginning to fall. In my area this is one of the most beautiful times of the year. Thousands will come to see the autumn colors that blanket the mountains of East Tennessee. The protective canopy that had surrounded us hunters just a few weeks ago will now surrender its leaves and expose us as an unwanted intruder. The forest will change, led by the leaves on each tree. This is a change orchestrated by God.
