   ON THE RIGHT FOOT by Rev. Don Rivers
Sometimes in life we are ridiculed, rumors are told about us by people who don’t know the truth or even care about the truth. Paul Harvey has made a living by telling “the rest of the story.” Are people jumping to conclusions all around us without regard for the truth? Who knows and who doesn’t know. Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. In racing we put up with rumors all the time. The truth sometimes is ignored, rarely is the truth proclaimed or believed. As Christians it is important to know that we are people who seek the truth, accept the truth and honor the truth. When we are faced with things that are not true, things that seek to tear people down, innuendo or rumor, we need to stand up. We should not participate....Full Story

In Loving Memory Of Howie

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’.
