Southern Hospitality: Welcome To Rutherford County, We're Glad You're Here

A polite 'hello' or 'thank you' spoken at just the right moment can make a bad day better in an instant. We all know that a genuine smile can brighten even the darkest hours and a kind gesture can shape our opinion of someone we've just met.

Sports take: Post 423 still undefeated

Legion Baseball

Post 423 is still undefeated and ran the record to 9-0 after beating Cherryville on Sunday 5-2. Pitching is a key deal considering they have at least three solid ones in Jace Crowe, Marty Barella and Storm Mace. They still have work to do, but Post 423 is playing extremely well considering Cherryville had only lost one area loss this season. Cherryville had won nine straight games coming into Sunday's match up.

Hardin's Drug "It's All About The People"

Born and raised in Forest City, brothers Ken and Marshall Hardin have made their mark on our local history. Even as children the brothers were 'wired to work'. They learned early on that hard work and diligence paid off, so it wasn't a surprise that back in the early 1970's they put together a plan that resulted in the now well-known and successful Hardin's Drug. "We started with nothing other than each other." said Ken Hardin.
