It's hard to understand another person's experiences until you've walked a mile in their shoes and the Board of Directors of My Sister's House plans to do just that.
The organization is hosting "Walk the Track in Her Shoes" on Saturday, April 25 at Glover Park in Nashville.
Tonya Slocum, who serves on the Board of Directors for My Sister's House and is also the Chair of the Fundraising Committee, said the idea stemmed from a national event, "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes" but was changed to be more local.

School Board silent about Jackson's future

Nash-Rocky Mount School Board members were silent about Superintendent Dr. Anthony Jackson's future on Monday night.
Even after a three-hour closed session meeting, where it was speculated that Jackson's future was being discussed, board members came out of the meeting with no comments, or actions, on the issue.
Rumors have been swirling for weeks that the school board has been discussing the possibility of terminating Jackson's contract. But on Monday night, following the board's regular meeting, Chairwoman Evelyn Bulluck said Jackson was still the superintendent.

It was based on scripture passage from James 1:13-15, which was read by Beth Baines. The pastor said that temptations visit us every day, but we must resist them. Sinful thoughts and desires will grow until they take possession of our lives. But God will give us courage and strength to resist them. The choir sang "I've been Changed," under the director of the pastor.

Word for the week

There is a sense in which Christianity is a two-stage affair. There is emphasis upon the spiritual. Jesus puts it this way. "You must be born again" (John 3:7). New birth is spiritual. The Holy Spirit in the human heart is a down payment on good things to come. God "gave us the Spirit in our hearts as a pledge" (2 Corinthians 1:22). This is stage one.
There is a second stage. "We ourselves, having the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our body" (Romans 8:23).

Those on the Tar River can help paddle for a cause

Mama always said, "Associate with people higher up than you. They can lift you up. If you associate with people lower than you, they will take you down."
Following Mama's admonition, I sought the company of Wesley Ferrell, native of Southern Nash County. I think his family worried about my bringing him down.
Back in the day, nineteen and seventy-two, Wesley and I enjoyed an experience that later became the embryo of remarkable endeavors that shaped both my professional and personal life. We borrowed a canoe from Phillip Witherington, a biology instructor at LSU, known then around Wilson as Lee Street University.

Hill Displays Plenty Of Promise

RED OAK -- Assembly Hall -- home to the Indiana University Hoosiers -- has been the site of many historic basketball moments through the years.
For former Northern Nash standout Alexus Hill, Assembly Hall will also serve as the base of one of the most important moments of her young life.
Hill's first-ever college game as a member of the Gardner-Webb University program was at Indiana last November as the Runnin' Bulldogs took on the Hurryin' Hoosiers in a match of fleet nicknames.
