Here we are exactly halfway through 2016. Hard to believe, isn’t it? For those who didn’t know, I played basketball all through high school and college. Halftime of any game was either a chance to take a breather if we were ahead and tweak a few little things to finish the game strong, or a chewing-out session to get us back on track when we needed to focus. I’m proud to say that in my 8 years of basketball, we finished most of them in the W column. One thing I learned, having been a part of those winning teams, is that it’s never too late to give it your all.

There will be ups and there will be downs, but halftime was always a great opportunity to reflect, regroup, re-energize, redirect if needed, and finish strong. Let’s use this opportunity at the turn of the calendar on the month and the half-way point of the year to do just that. What still needs to get done to finish the year strong? You’ve got time – you just need to focus and execute. We’ve got this … GO TEAM! Nice reminder. I’m feeling a little bit like I need to chew myself out a little bit. But you’re right there’s still time left on the clock!
The Blackhawks suffered a tragic loss tonight. Our hearts are saddened as we mourn the loss of Johnny, Dillon and Dillon’s father. Johnny and Dillon were two fine young men. Our hearts and prayers are with their families. Please remember the families in prayer. Thoughts and prayers from the North Wilkes High School community. We may never know why tragedies happen but we must trust in God and His goodness to support us as we deal with the loss. You all are in our prayers! My heart breaks when I read this. I was proud to know them at NWR. My prayers will be with their families and the NB community during this time.
