Improving and promoting outdoor recreation in Rutherford County

R-S Central softball (7-1, 5-0) is still on a roll, aside from the 1-0 non-conference loss to Chesnee, the Lady Hilltoppers are undefeated in conference play. The pitching has been solid with Haley White and Madison Crain. Hitting was a question coming into the season, but they have answered that issue pretty handily.

Local beekeeper receives grant that's the bees knees

Jackson Corbin comes from a long line of beekeepers, but it wasn't until he was in his early 20s that he began to consider becoming one himself.

"I was watching a TV show on bees and thought that it might be something I'd like to get into," he said.

Local Sports:

R-S Central softball (5-1, 4-0) is legit, but they did fall to a very tough Chesnee last week in non-conference play. They will have East Burke this Friday (3/17) and East Rutherford on 3/24.

East Rutherford (2-1, 1-1) lost their first game last week to Burns, but this young group should be interesting to watch. Scoring hasn't been a problem with 19 runs in 3 games.

Chase (3-1, 2-1) has battled to gain a couple of close wins so far, but lost their first game to Crest last week. They host KIngs Mountain on the 21st.

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.
