It was a great Spring sports season for many teams in the county, but none of them could come up with state titles. There were only two left from last week as they reached the third round of the postseason.

High School Baseball

R-S Central baseball has won eight playoff games in the last calendar year after defeating West Iredell in round one and Anson 4-1 in the second round.

Central played a very tough Ledford team on Tuesday and if they advance will likely play North Davidson at home Friday at 7pm.

East Rutherford's season came to an end as Franklin beat them on the road 4-3. It was an up and down season all year as they won 14 games, but lost by errors in round one. That isn't typical Cavalier baseball. Still, East Rutherford is a threat ever time they step on the field.

Do you decorate?

I really love the Christmas and New Year's holidays what with all of the decorations. You go to an office building, there are decorations. You go shopping, there are decorations. You drive through a neighborhood, there are many fine examples of exterior illumination displays that would make Clark Griswold envious. Even some truckers hang wreaths on the front of their rigs to celebrate.

But then all the decorations come down and are put back into their out-of-the-way hiding places, destined to gather dust until next season. Everything looks rather plain, doesn't it? Even barren of anything that resembles a celebration.

And that's why every year I leave out some decorations. I know it may look rather strange to some people for me to have Santa Claus figurines on a table, or the nativity scene on my desk or an angel hanging in a window or a candle in the window. But I leave a decoration or two out to remind me that I can celebrate all year long as I make a life worth living and Live Positive. And you can, too! Keep a decoration out next week and celebrate!
