Story and photography by Eric Lusk

The 10th Annual First Shot Sneaker Ball recently took place at World Outreach Church in Murfreesboro. Under the direction of Coach Andy Herzer, First Shot Basketball programs enable children of all ages to participate in sports programs. The activities further equip kids with fundamental life skills through mentoring programs in a Christ centered atmosphere.

This fun-filled, inspiring event featured guest speaker, Tamika Catchings. Tamika was one of the stars of the National Championship University of Tennessee women’s basketball team, then drafted by the Indiana Fever. After a career filled with records, awards and success, she released her autobiography, Catch A Star: Shining through Adversity to Become a Champion, sharing her story of overcoming hearing loss, separation from family, high expectations and the pain of debilitating physical injuries. She reached for the stars with hard work, perseverance and her faith in God.

If you are interested in sending a child to a youth camp, the cost is $100 per child scholarship. Please contact Andy Herzer at www.1stshotbasketball.net and donate generously today.

    August is the calendar month when summer begins its slow crawl towards autumn, but not before a few more hot days and thunderstorms. Enjoy the bounty of the season: vine-ripened tomatoes, ripe melon, sweet corn on the cob, and blueberries are just a few of my favorites. Luckily for us, Murfreesboro is blessed with one of the finest Farmer’s Markets in the state where we can do just that! Nothing screams summer better than a homecooked meal of fresh fruits and vegetables, locally grown and sold. Read More
  • Garage Barre + Bike

    You may have noticed the corner of Church St and Vine St on Murfreesboro’s downtown square looks a little different. What once was an empty building with a black coat of paint now features a pink-and-white striped wall (that you’ve probably seen photographed on social media.) Inside these striped walls are barres, bikes, and a community that is flipping the idea of a “boutique fitness studio” completely upside down. Read More
