   A TIME FOR DECISIONS by Rev. Don Rivers
There are times in our lives that require evaluation and decisions. We need to determine what elements of life we value. We also need to determine what elements of life are necessary. Most of us desire to have a satisfying and fulfilling life. We pursue the things we feel will accomplished that; education, jobs, marriage, family, home, friends, community, possessions, etc. For each of us the list and its priorities is different. We search for the right combination that will fill the desire of our soul. There is in each of us a deep longing for peace. Oh to be at peace. Along with peace there comes another longing for joy, an inner satisfaction with the way things are. We search for the elusive peace and joy throughout our lives....Full Story

   THE TRUE MEANING by Rev. Don Rivers
One of my favorite Christmas specials is “A Charlie Brown Christmas.” I like it because Charles Schultz chooses to quote the Scriptural story of Christmas found in the Gospel of Luke, Chapter 2. Linus reads the story and the attention of all is drawn to God’s Word. I have put the story here, take time and read it this Christmas season. Sit down with your friends and family and truly embrace the gift that God sent to us. Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Luke 2: 1-20, NIV - 1 In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. 2 (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) 3 And everyone went to his own town to register....Full Story

NASCAR held its Touring Series and weekly racing series banquets in Charlotte, NC this past weekend. In a wise move, NASCAR decided to not have a most popular driver in the Whelen Modified Tour Series. For the most part Milissa Fifield can be blamed for that because in previous years she stacked the computer voting in her favor. It would be fitting to select Teddy Christopher as the Most Popular Driver this season. Todd Gilliland was in a familiar situation when he took the stage at the Charlotte Convention Center at the NASCAR Hall of Fame Friday night. Gilliland wasn’t the only familiar face honored at the NASCAR Home Tracks Awards, officially receiving their NASCAR championship rings and trophies. Doug Coby received the hardware for his fifth NASCAR Whelen....Full Story

Congratulations to Martin Truex Jr who honored as NASCAR's newest Monster Cup champion in Las Vegas last week. It was fitting for Truex Jr. to be introduced as NASCAR's newest champion by his buddy Dale Earnhardt Jr. Earnhardt who helped Truex venture out of New Jersey to give it a go in NASCAR. Now, nearly 15 years later, Truex was on racing's biggest stage. Truex was presented the Championship Ring by NASCAR CEO Brian France who all but snubbed the new champion. The gesture showed a total lack of class. No wonder the grandstands at most events are only half full. France's father Bill France Jr and grandfather William H.G. France who founded NASCAR must be rolling in their graves. The sanctioning body paid tribute to those we lost in 2017....Full Story

The northeast Modified season wound up last weekend at the Wall Stadium in New Jersey with the Annual Turkey Derby on Friday and Saturday. Great fall weather brought out a packed house and an overflow of cars in the pit area at the track that was patterned after the Lonsdale Arena in Rhode Island.
The big news to come out of the Jersey shore track is the fact that Matt Hirschman didn’t win. Hometown favorite Jimmy Blewett did! Blewett started on the pole of the 150 lap event and led all ut three laps of the wreck marred event. Local favorites Andrew Krause was second and Ron Frees was third to complete an all Jersey podium for the event. Invader Ryan Preece was fourth. Kyle Elwood came back from being 2 laps down to a great 5th place finish. Blewett put....Full Story
 

In Loving Memory Of Howie

   HOWARD "HOWIE" ARTHUR HODGE prepared by Polly Reid
Saturday afternoon on January 28, 2017, Howard ‘Howie’ Arthur Hodge passed away at the St. Francis Hospital in Hartford, CT. Surrounded by family at the time of his passing, Howard was 77 years old.
Born on August 31, 1939 at the Hartford Hospital, Howard was the second of three children to Dorothy (Hoadley) and Leon Hodge.
His first few years were spent in Glastonbury, CT before the Hodge family moved to East Hartford where Howard went to school graduating from the East Hartford High School in 1957.
Growing up, Howard had a paper route for ‘quite a few years’. The pile of papers would be left on the front lawn and Howard would be responsible for folding them, putting them in the big cloth bag then ride around the neighborhood delivering the Hartford Times. His sister Lois fondly remembers his bicycle that ‘he fixed up until it was like a motorcycle’ complete with a windshield, skirts....Full Story
