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.

High School Playoffs

R-S Central softball (18-4, 13-2) and baseball (21-3, 14-1) should be at home for quite a while should they keep winning. Both opened at home Wednesday and will stay at home Saturday if they advanced. There is a chance that Central softball could only get one round at home though depending on how the bracket falls.

The Fountain at Smith's Drugs
The Fountain at Smith's Drugs "We remember that it is our privilege to serve our community"

The Rutherford Weekly recently approached Smith's Drug Store with the intention of producing an article about the long life of The Fountain and it's 'secret for success' all these years. Mr. John Higgins, owner and pharmacist, referred us to Mrs. Susan Stewart who is the current manager of The Fountain. We presented Mrs. Stewart with a list of questions and her response was so thorough and compelling that we are publishing it verbatim. Her description of The Fountain and it's history illustrates the culture that, one would conclude, answers any questions about it's longevity.
