We've all seen them there at the intersection. Brooms in one hand and candy in the other. They stand out there all day, hour after hour, weaving themselves through the cars, collecting donations while handing out candy to everyone. They are the tip of the iceberg, a small representation of an enormous body of generous souls that do the same all across the planet. They are the Lions.

Men's High School hoops

R-S Central has now moved to 12-4, 2-0 and continue to show senior leadership, poise and depth in what is a very tough league in hoops play. Elijah Carson was a big factor this past week off the bench and Zyrion Wilkins continues to lead the Hilltoppers. They continue to play a little better defensively every game too. Central has a big game against East Gaston at home, Friday, the 19th.

East Rutherford (11-6, 1-2) has struggled in conference play, but have lost both league games by less than 10 points. Josh Searcy and Quay Logan have been doing their part.

What are you building?

I'm like most men--I enjoy finding some project to do around our farm so I can go to the hardware store and look at the power tools and other important things I need. One time I was building a wooden fence with a couple of gates. Of course that meant a trip to the store to look at hinges and latches.

Now I'm by no means an expert on hinges which means I was forced to do what most of us men dread doing--ask for help. The associate made it easy on me though. He offered. I figured it was less disgraceful that way.

So I tell him what I'm doing, give him the dimensions of the gate, and pick up a hefty size set of hinges and say, "I guess I need something this big."

"Oh no sir, Dr. Joey," he says. "You can use something much smaller than that. Small hinges swing big doors."

That's true about making a positive life, too. You probably think you have to do something huge during the holidays to be positive. Not really. Just change a small habit despite your hectic schedule and watch as your life swings better.

Listen to your life for what that small habit might be and make a positive life.
