See Page 2 See Pages 7 - 9 Committee votes on property tax hike By CALVIN CARTER email@example.com After many weeks of meetings and planning, the Haywood County Budget Committee may have ﬁnally come up with a ﬁnal budget for the 2011-2012 ﬁscal year. The committee wrapped up their string of meetings Tuesday, August 16 at the Haywood County Court House at 9 a.m. Although budget committee members had initially anticipated a raise with the property tax, the ﬁnal ﬁgure presented may not have served as the conclusion they were initially aiming for. The budget committee made a 5-1 vote to raise the property tax rate from $2.38 to $2.90 per hundred dollars of assed value, which is basically an increase of 52 cents. Although members could describe the vote as “reluctant,” committee member Joe Stevens was the member that cast the no vote. The tax hike would cost property owners $1,850,940 a year. The county is also expected to produce $10,426,894.90 in gross revenue. Breaking the 52-cent increase down, 32 cents of it would go towards the county general fund, while 20 cents would go towards the debt service, which is meant to help with payments of projects like the Haywood County States-Graphic welcomes new Sports Editor Justice Center, and the building improvements deal with the high school. While it’s arguable if inmate healthcare is a contributor to this year’s budget woes, it may not have certainly helped matters. The county had contracted Conmed for inmate healthcare, originally set to pay $360,000. Conmed has reached a new deal, with the county paying $351,000 but also an additional $40,000 for mental health services and prescription medication. Before Conmed’s new deal, the county had anticipated paying approximately $75,000 in prescription medication alone. While raises and bonuses had been in discussion during the budget meetings, the committee whittled the idea to onetime bonuses for county employees. The committee voted 5-1—Stevens once again voted no—on providing a one-time $500 bonus for full time county employees to be paid in December. Parttime county employees will receive a one time $250 bonus in December. Proposing to have one of the highest tax rates in West Tennessee, the committee will present the budget to county commission members. A public meeting will take place Thursday August 25 at 7 p.m., with a special called meeting to follow Tuesday August 30 at 7 p.m. Construction on courthouse extends; Will not interfere with Fall Fest By CALVIN CARTER firstname.lastname@example.org There’s a lot of positive currently ﬂowing within Haywood County Schools Athletics, with much more expected to occur. Fortunately, the Brownsville States-Graphic has the right sports editor ready to tackle any of the games and activities Haywood County has to offer. Jeff Ireland Jeff Ireland is the new Sports Editor, though many in the area may already be familiar with his work. After all, Ireland brings a plethora of skill and experience to the position. He entered into the Journalism program at the University of Memphis and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in 1996. Many years later, he would become an adjunct professor for his Alma Mater. Since graduation, Ireland’s journey in the sports journalism ﬁeld has presented an impressive climb. Ireland served as sports/news editor for The Covington Leader from 1996-2006. Afterwards, he became editor of On The Ball magazine, a publication dedicated to high school sports in the West Tennessee area, from 2006-2009. Ireland also freelanced for The Commercial Appeal and The Memphis Daily News for the past few years. Ireland is enthused to have the opportunity to cover the sports scene in Haywood County. “I am really looking forward to covering the sports scene in Brownsville and Haywood County,” he said. “Haywood High School has a tremendous sports tradition and I can’t wait to get to know all the coaches, administrators and athletes, as well as other members of the community.” If you have any potential story leads for Ireland, you can contact him at email@example.com. By CALVIN CARTER firstname.lastname@example.org Residents of Brownsville have tried to adjust as best possible to the current construction work taking place on the court house square area. And while the city had originally planned on having the project done by September Marathon to take Applications 30, a minor extension of the project will take place instead. During this month’s City of Board of Mayor and Aldermen meeting, Mayor Jo Matherne announced October 17 as the expected new date of completion. The contractors on the project, Wagner General Contractor, asked for the extension, although they expect the project to wrap up earlier than that date. The extension has already met approval from the city and the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT). Although the project, ﬁguratively and literally, hit dirt in May of this year, it’s actually been in the works since December of 2007, Mayor See CONSTRUCTION pg.3 By CALVIN CARTER email@example.com can also still drop off resumes at the Haywood Element building. The city and county have agreed to give a total of $50,000 to the Brownsville Industrial Board to help cover the moving expenses for Marathon. The state will also provide Marathon with a number of various tax credits and special incentives to operate in Brownsville. Marathon was founded in 1996 as a manufacturer of industrialgrade heating elements and temperature sensors. With news spreading quickly about Marathon’s buying of Haywood Element, many have inquired about job applications. At the current moment, the industrial business is in the middle of cleaning and moving, to prep for a hopeful production run in the mid to late September. Besides a new owner, not too much will really change with the business. Marathon will still produce the same type of product as Haywood Element: mainly tubular heaters. John Finn Jr., who was Haywood Element Plant Manager for approximately 30-years will remain in the same position. Those interested in working for Marathon will get the chance to try next week. Applications should be available at the Tennessee Career Center, located at 140 South Wilson Avenue starting next Monday August 22.

Clark was one of 232 tourism professionals enrolled at the Southeast Tourism Society Marketing College last month. The week-long program turns the facilities of North Georgia College and State University in Dahlonega, Ga., into a laboratory to teach tourism marketing each summer. There is no other professional development program like STS Marketing College, and it is recognized nationally for its training of tourism leaders. 626 people have earned TMP certification. “In the tourism industry, TMP certification carries a lot of weight,” said Bill Hardman, president and CEO of the Southeast Tourism Society, a 12-state organization that promotes travel and tourism in the Southeast. The STS Marketing College began in 1992 to provide continuing education for tourism professionals and feted its 20th anniversary this year. Tourism ranks as the first-, second- or thirdlargest industry in each STS member state. Students come from convention and visitors bureaus, chambers of commerce, attractions, hotels and other segments of the tourism industry. The curriculum covers topics such as branding, social media, packaging and sports marketing. Heritage tourism and research are courses that have attracted special interest in recent years. “The fundamental concept of STS Marketing College is that the curriculum is practical. What students learn can be put to practice as soon as they get back to their workplaces,” Hardman said. Twenty-four senior executives in the travel and tourism industry were the volunteer faculty. The program attracts students from throughout the Southeast and occasionally from other states. This year’s program included students from Maryland and Oklahoma. “Southeast Tourism Society is recognized nationwide for the cohesiveness and camaraderie it fosters in the region. No other region in the U.S. has a similar organization. STS Marketing College is a major project to build skills and professionalism in the tourism industry,” Hardman said. Southeast Tourism Society, created in 1983, is headquartered in Atlanta and has approximately 800 Sonia Outlaw-Clark, director of the West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center is among three area tourism professionals who have completed their second year of STS Marketing College in Dahlonega, Georgia.

The Brownsville States-Graphic, Thursday, August 18, 2011 — Page 3 Lt. Gov. Ramsey appoints Gresham to Finance Committee Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey today announced the appointment of Sen. Dolores Gresham (R-Somerville) to the Senate Finance, Ways and Means Committee. Sen. Gresham also serves as Chairman of the Senate Education Committee. “Dolores Gresham has been an invaluable member of the Senate since her election in 2006,” said Lt. Gov. Governor Ramsey. “In an age when we are increasingly looking for ways to maximize government efﬁciency and shrink the size of government, it is crucial to have proven ﬁscal conservatives on our Finance committee. Sen. Gresham doesn’t just talk the talk on budget issues. She’s walks the walk. I’m proud to have her on this committee.” “I’ve always been committed to keeping taxes low, government small and the budget balanced,” said Sen. Gresham. “There is no better place than the Finance committee for a legislator to achieve those goals. I’m honored to have been chosen to serve.” One of the more powerful Senate committees, the Finance, WaysAnd Means Committee is responsible for all measures relating the raising of revenue, the issuance or payment of bonds and the appropriation of state funds. Much of the committee’s work revolves around the general appropriations bill crucial to forming the state budget.

Trafﬁc stop leads to burglary arrest By CALVIN CARTER firstname.lastname@example.org and passenger became “very nervous,” and the ofﬁcer noticed a large TV in the back of the car. While on this trafﬁc stop, a burglary of a residence call came out at 441 Fleming. After ofﬁcers arrived, the victim, P.O. Williams, 61, reported a 42” Toshiba Flat screen TV missing. It was the same TV that ofﬁcers found in the vehicle on the trafﬁc stop. Brandon Hill, 29 and a juvenile subject, not named in the release, were arrested for aggravated burglary, theft over $500 and vandalism. A stop for a potential speeding violation led to the arrest of two residents for aggravated burglary charges Monday, August 15. According to a press release from the Brownsville Police Department, BPD Ofﬁcer Mike O’Connell observed a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed on North Washington, while working trafﬁc enforcement.

Grants for ﬁscal year 2012 will be used to cost share landusers who install certain Best Management Practices on their farm. This year priority funds are available in the Cypress Creek and Meridian Creek watersheds in Haywood County. The Ag Conservation Fund gives the Haywood County Soil Conservation District an opportunity to provide ﬁnancial assistance to landusers who install needed conservation measures that might not otherwise be carried out. Haywood County is primarily a row crop county with over 130,000 acres of highly erodible ﬁelds, which can present erosion and water quality hazards. Much of the grant money in the past has been utilized on row cropland, although there are practices such as cropland conversion (new pasture seeding) and cattle waterers, which can beneﬁt the livestock producer. Hundreds of farmers and landowners have beneﬁted from this program in the past both ﬁnancially and by protecting and improving their lands. Over ½ million feet of terraces and diversions have been built along with numerous grassed waterways, sediment basins, and other practices with cost share assistance from these funds. Thousands of tons of soil have been saved, and the quality of water in runoff from ﬁelds has improved on farmland where these practices have been established. Sign up for the 2011-2012 project will start at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, August 30, at the USDA Service Center, 1179 South Dupree Street in Brownsville. Funds are limited and will be allocated on a ﬁrst come – ﬁrst serve basis. Absolutely no early sign-ups will be accepted. Sign-ups must be in person, and will be limited to a maximum of $3500 per person or operation. Eligible practices in Haywood County will include: terraces, sediment basins, grade stabilization structures, diversions, grass waterways, critical area treatment, cropland conversion, conservation buffers and other practices. If you need more information prior to sign-up, contact the Haywood County Soil Conservation District at 731-772-1822 Ext. 3. “The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) prohibits discrimination in all its programs and activities on the basis of race, color, national orgin, gender, religion, age, disability, political beliefs and marital or family status.

It was then that the city started setting aside funds for the project in the hopes of providing the courthouse area with a bit of a “facelift.” It was also already budgeted for this year with the brunt of the project being paid for thanks to a grant. While the surprising sweltering summer weather may have contributed a bit to slowing progress, the main contributor may have been a few construction snags while working on the west side of the court house. Workers apparently had a few issues with the underground pipe around the courthouse. Semi-trucks, which were seen during the early summer as noticeable problem, have seemed to calm down from running past the detour signs and into the downtown area. There are still a few that drive in the area, due to local business delivery, but the issue isn’t as big now as it was when construction initially began, Mayor Matherne said. Despite the time extension, Mayor Matherne noted that it shouldn’t interfere with this year’s fall fest, which will take place October 15. In any case, the mayor hopes that residents will continue to show patience while construction continues. In the next few weeks, construction will eventually move onto the sidewalks and islands near court square businesses. Mayor Matherne is pleased with what she’s seen so far from the project.“I am very pleased with it starting to take shape,” she said. “It is a start on the downtown’s appearance, so that once again court square can become a viable hot spot.” “It is a good start on that revitalization.” Veranda’s NOW OPEN - DRIVE THRU WINDOW for selected combo items: 1/2 lb Burger, Fries & Drink - $5.99 BBQ Sandwich, Slaw, Beans, Choice of Potato Salad, Fries & Drink - $5.99 Grilled or Fried Chicken, Fires & Drink - $5.99 Lunch Plate (One Meat, Two Vegitables) - $5.99 DINE IN or TAKE OUT Carver Progressive Alumni All You Can Eat LUNCH BUFFET - $4.99 Choose from 6 different meats & vegitables Salad Bar • Dessert Bar • Ice Cream The Carver Progressive Alumni will be holding their Annual Meeting on Monday, August 22 in the Carver Museum at 6 p.m. @ 731-772-8890 This Week’s Special 14 Inch Large 1 Topping - $7.99 or CALL IN TO ORDER PIZZA Special - 8 oz Ribeye - $9.99 includes salad, dessert & ice cream bar Opinion The Brownsville States-Graphic page 4 Thursday, August 18, 2011 Off the Beaten Path with Jerry Wilson Are the Good Times Really Over For Good Country singer Merle Haggard wrote and recorded one of his top songs in the 1960s that continues to receive airplay even today regarding the question, “Are the Good Times really over for good?” Some of the lyrics include, “I wish the buck was still silver, it was back when the country was strong. Back before Elvis, before the Vietnam war came along, before the Beatles and “Yesterday, when a man could still work and still would.” The lyrics continue with the words, “Is the best of the free life behind us now? Are the good times really over for good?” Haggard brings up a number of questions in this composition when he asked, “Are we rolling down hill like a snowball headed for hell, with no chance for the Flag or the Liberty Bell?” He also has a small wish list as well when he said, “Wish a Ford or a Chevy could last 10 years like they should. I wish a coke was still cola and a joint was a bad place down the street.” While humming along with Haggard, a question comes to my mind, “What constitutes a good time?” One possible definition for “good time” is said to be a highly pleasurable or exciting experience. The word, pleasure, has many synonyms ranging from happiness to satisfaction to gratification and all points in between. From my perspective, pleasure is not determined necessarily by economic or social conditions. During the days of my youth, the least of our problems were the lack of good times. Some of my fondest memories, and there are so many, come from the Sunday afternoons spent horseback riding for miles on end especially in the late Spring and early Fall. There were also occasional lunches or “dinner on the ground” as we called them back then at Bethel Church as well as community events held often at the school. My most treasured moments were all the times we spent together and shared with family and friends. Sometimes pleasurable moments came at the expense of others like the time when some young ladies were riding home on horseback after grocery shopping at one of the local stores. One of the boys within the group decided to create his own entertainment when he used his sling shot loaded with a sizable clod of dirt to get the horse’s attention. He made a perfect shot and ponytail hairdos along with can goods, loose potatoes and busted sacks of flower went flying through the air at a high rate of speed. Screams of horror also echoed throughout the countryside. We learned an important lesson that day. Our parents made sure that we would never forget that it is unacceptable to find pleasure in other folk’s misery. Certainly, the times were not always great back then, but while reflecting back to that time in my life, I’ve come to realize that sometimes, even the bad times were good. The Haggard song did not close on a hopeless note but issued these words of encouragement. “Let’s stop rolling down the hill like a snowball headed for hell, let’s make a Ford and a Chevy last for 10 years like it should. The best of the good life is still to come,” and yes, “the good times ain’t over for good.” Friends With Benefits Star Rating: This week I decided to take a break from the action of summer and maybe review a romantic comedy for once. Why not? The ladies need something to check out so I went out for date night this week and saw Friends With Benefits. And wow, it goes without saying that you should definitely leave the kids home for this one. Not only does the title scream inappropriate for kids, but the movie itself was outlandishly risqué. Of course it’s exactly what I was expecting to see, what with it being rated R and all. Whats funny is the fact that I saw at least a dozen teenagers at this movie, unaccompanied by adults. And yet teens go to see these Twilight movies that are 8 / 10 just as much loaded with this kind of content, with their parents. It’s almost like if there wasn’t the whole vampire/werewolf backdrop, people might find those movies inappropriate at well. But I digress. This kind of film is definitely geared towards a more mature audience but had the humor you would expect from the minds of the “today’s society”. So don’t go to see this one if you are easily offended or put off by this kind of hilarity. And now that you have been warned, I will comence with saying that this movie was pretty funny through and through. I was expecting a light hearted, romantic-comedy, but this turned out to be more of a straight comedy than anything. Never thought I could relate to Justin Timberlake, but apparently the guy has good enough acting skills to relate to me. Plus I never got to see The Social Network. Mila was a good match to make a fun and kind of demented duo. The movie itself was a great experience and just fun to see. I recommend watching it once. That is if you feel it is right for you. At least as a date night movie it was a good call to see it. I hope they make more romantic-comedies like this one, and not ones that make me want to cry myself to sleep in a dark room. This movie gets an eight out of 10 Until next week I’ll see you at the theater. Peeples By 28th Judicial District Circuit Court Judge Clayburn Peeples The Sound of Summer’s Ending My daughter Margaret and I were standing out on the back porch the other night listening to the cicadas serenade coming from the trees in the back yard. Tree frogs, katydids, crickets and grasshoppers — it sounded like they were all sounding off together in all their late summer night glory, and Margaret ran into the house excitedly to tell her sisters to “come out quick and listen to the tree frogs!” Not everyone gets that excited about August. Most people tolerate, rather than embrace the sounds, sights and senses of the month and they have their reasons. I came across an article last week in which the author was so put out with August he facetiously suggested we remove it from the calendar. “August”, he said, is “beastly hot and muggy. It has a dismal history. Nothing good ever happens in it.” Well I wouldn’t say nothing good ever happens in it, but it’s for certain a lot of bad things have, August of this year, so far, being a case in point. The stock market has been on a roller coaster, mostly downhill, but that’s about par for August. Some of you remember August of 1998 when the Dow Jones lost 15%. The sub prime crisis came to a head in August of 2007. And the month’s bad karma goes beyond finances. August is the month in which the atomic bombs were dropped on Japan. It is the month Anne Frank was discovered by the Nazi’s. The nation’s first income tax was imposed in August of 1861. (The Confederacy also had an income tax.) Elvis died, in August. So did Marilyn Monroe and Princess Diana. World War I began in August of 1914. The Nazi’s and Russians signed their shameful non aggression pact in August of 1939, followed within days by both countries invading Poland. In Au- gust 1964 the Gulf of Tonkin incident began our official involvement in the Vietnam War. It was in August of 1968 that Russia invaded Czechoslovakia. In August of 1990, Iraq invaded Kuwait. Many people have noted that since Western leaders often vacation in August, it is a favorite time for tyrants to strike. August is one of few months with no major holiday, so everybody has to work all month long, and to make matters worse, it is one of the longest months of the year. (Quickly now, how many months have 31 days? Had to use the poem, didn’t you?) It is also odd in that except for leap years, no other month starts on the same day of the week as August does. Gardens die in August, and weeds take over. As a matter of fact, until William the Conqueror brought the Julian calendar to Briton, the name of the month in England was “Wead-monath. (month of weeds) Along with the weeds, come armies of insects, more than at any other time of the year. Just about everyone knows about the hot, sweltry dog days of August, but do you know about “cat nights?” They begin August 17. Apparently, in the 16th Century, someone came up with the idea that witches had the power to turn themselves into cats nine times, but that they could turn themselves back into witches only eight. The ninth time, which somehow became associated with August 17, they couldn’t go back and had to remain cats forever. Supposedly when you hear a cat yowling this time of year it is because some witch has just learned she will never fly on a broom again. August is a transitional month in our culture. It’s when kids go back to school and nearly everyone’s vacation ends. In northern parts of the world it is the beginning of harvest season. It is the eighth month of the year now, but was the sixth month on the old ten month Roman calendar. Its Latin name was Sextilis, meaning “six.” (March was the first month of the year then.) Julius Caesar added two more months to the calendar, January and February, but he left the name of the eighth month Sextilis. But then, sometime around the birth of Jesus, the Roman senate changed the name of Sextilis to Augustus, to honor the new Emperor of Rome, Augustus Caesar. Other emperors tried the same trick; for a while the month of May was called “Claudius”, and Nero changed the name of April to “Neronius”, but those names fell by the way after the reigns of Claudius and Nero passed into history. July (named after Julius Caesar) and August endured, however, and although the calendar has changed, the names of the months have remained the same for the last 2,000 years, so I guess we’ll have to keep August, dog days, cat nights and all. Besides, August also has its compensations. There may be more bugs this month, but some of them are butterflies. As the nights get cooler, flower colors intensify, and many plants become more florific. August is unique. The light in August changes daily, and shadows fall in noticeably different places every morning. The colors of the natural earth are changing as well, as summer dances one last hurrah upon the seasonal stage before gathering her skirts and silently stealing away into autumn. It may indeed bring us some of the worst news we ever hear, but August also produces some of the sweetest sounds of the summer. Ask my daughter, Margaret, if you don’t believe me. You do remember what summer sounds like, don’t you?

He was hired last January to revive a Tomcat program that has had two straight losing seasons, something that does not sit well with the Haywood fan base. So, in his mind, doing the same thing and expecting different results does not make any sense. Gone is the run-ﬁrst offense and a defensive style that yielded 34 or more points in each of the team’s six losses last year. “I think it’s a total rebuild,” Calhoun said. “It’s going to be a long process because you’re trying to change a culture … We’ve got a new system of play on defense and offense.” The ﬁrst things Haywood fans are likely to notice when the Tomcats take the ﬁeld for the season opener Friday night against Jackson Central-Merry is the offense. Calhoun, who served as an assistant coach at Brighton the past ﬁve seasons, is bringing over the spread offense that helped the Cardinals go 27-6 the last three seasons while rolling up some huge numbers on offense. By and large, the team’s players have accepted the drastic change that includes a quarterback in the shotgun, linemen in two-point stances and the deployment of four and ﬁve wideouts. “All the younger guys, they’re buying in,” Calhoun said. “It’s just a different style of play. They’ve been three yards and a cloud of dust here forever. We’re out there throwing it around. They have a lot of people in the community in their ear. The young guys can get inﬂuenced … If we win doing what we’re doing, we’re geniuses. If you get beat, you’re an idiot. It’s the same thing everywhere.” Senior Temarcus Clark, a 6-3, 300-pound noseguard, has seen the new offense up close during practice. He thinks people are going to be surprised. “It’s a lot different,” Clark said. “They’re going to see some things that Haywood’s never done before.” Junior Justice Brown, the team’s top returning rusher, agrees. “It’s great,” said Brown, who had some big carries, including a sevenyard touchdown run, in the jamboree last week. “It’s going to work real good. It’s opened up.” Seth Birdsong, a 6-4, 220-pound junior who will play wideout and defensive tackle this year, said the new offense requires more conditioning. “I feel like we’re not in as good of shape as we should be yet,” Birdsong said. “We’re getting better as we go, hitting the weights, running a lot more.” Sophomore Montravious Currie and freshman Bryce Young have been competing for the starting quarterback spot. Junior Quintavious Caldwell, last year’s quarterback, has moved to strong safety and wide receiver. Sophomore Martez Comage is expected to be one of the team’s key receivers. The offensive line – juniors Shemar Powell, Andrew Tarkington and Kaderran Bonn, plus sophomore Thomas Currie and freshman Blake Moore – will be largely untested. On the defensive side of the ball, sophomore middle linebacker Devonte Briley and senior end DeMarcus Coney, who serves as the team captain, will be key players. Coney is excited about the defensive scheme, which is going to be more aggressive this season. “We’re a lot more coordinated than we were last year,” Coney said. “Last year it was basically a touch and feel, look at guards. If they pull, that was basically the only thing we had to read off of … We review over a lot of the plays that the other team has so we can get a feel for how they’re going to run it against us. It’s more of a pre-planned thing.” Haywood’s schedule is written on a large white board in Calhoun’s ofﬁce. One afternoon last week he was going through the opponents. He said his goal is for the team to win ﬁve games and/or make the playoffs. “I think if you make the playoffs, that’s huge,” Calhoun said. “That would probably be overachieving.” As far as the changes he’s made to the team, particularly the offense, Calhoun has been around long enough to know what will determine how they will be ultimately received. “The spread offense here,” he said. “It will be the coolest thing ever … as long as we’re winning.” 7th grade football team 8th grade football team HJH 2011 Cheerleaders Cheering for the Haywood Junior High School Football Warriors this year are (front, from left) Emma Dew (Co-captain), Kayln Emerson, Kayla Crawford, Sweetie Patel and Madison Carvin; (second row) Taylor Ann King, Cassidy Fry, Anne Marie Sceals, Felescia Sanders and Morgan Hendrix; and (third row) Mary Catherine Currie (Captain), Gracie Sills, Hannah Stanley, McKenzie Scott, Mary Wyatt Pettigrew, and Kendra Currie.

The Brownsville States-Graphic Sports/Education page 10 Thursday, August 18, 2011 Tomcats’ offense shows positive signs in jamboree By JEFF IRELAND jireland@statesgraphic. com Fans of Haywood football got a glimpse of new coach Slade Calhoun’s spread offense Friday night against Munford in the Covington Jamboree. S o p h o m o r e quarterback Montravious Currie made some big plays, as did junior running back Justice Brown, but the Tomcats fell to the Cougars, 13-6. The offense’s potential was on display midway through the first half when the Tomcats began a drive on their own 15. Currie hit sophomore Martez Comage in the right flat for a 49-yard gain down to Munford 36. Two plays later Currie and Comage hooked up again for a 20-yard play. Brown finished off the drive with a seven-yard touchdown run to tie game at 6-6. Munford’s D’Marious Exum broke a 65-yard run midway though the second half and scored on a seven-yard run with 5:58 left for the winning score. “I thought our offense was just fine,” Calhoun said. “We just couldn’t stop the run … We’re just so young. Some penalties killed us.” Freshman quarterback Bryce Young started the game for Haywood and also performed well. Young and Currie have been competing for the starting job during preseason practice. “Both quarterbacks did a good job,” Calhoun said. “I thought we could have had another touchdown out there.” After Haywood recovered a fumble with 17:33 left in the first half, a Brown 16-yard run got the Tomcats near midfield before they were forced to punt. A five-play Tomcat drive in the game’s final minutes stalled at midfield.

In addition to the anticipation of seeing a new-look Tomcat team with a first-year coach against rival Jackson Central-Merry, hundreds of alumni will be in attendance to take part in the 100-year anniversary of Haywood High School football, which will take place at halftime. A crowd that could approach 4,000 is expected. Haywood’s stadium holds 3,200. Game time is 7:30 p.m. “From what I hear, there’s going to be a huge crowd,” said Slade Calhoun, Haywood’s head coach. “If everything runs as smoothly as it should, everything Haywood County Retired Teachers Association The Haywood County Retired Teachers Association met on June 23 at Insouth Bank. Eighteen members enjoyed the lunch provided by Insouth Bank and served by the employees of the bank. Mrs. Alice McClanahan spoke to the group about identity theft protection that the bank is offering to its customers. Following the meal, a short business meeting followed. Mrs. Annette Hill was welcomed as a new member. Mrs. Linda Merrick reported on a district meeting that she and Mrs. Peggy Haynes attended in April, which focused on membership.

The Cougars lost to Gibson County, which was 0-10 last year, 10-0 in jamboree action last week. The Tomcats defeated JCM 34-12 in the season opener last season. “They have a lot of athleticism,” Calhoun said. “I can tell you that. They have great size and they’re very fast.” Corner Oh my gosh! What was that? Did you feel it? There! Did you feel it that time? A breeze, very faint, but a breeze nonetheless. Could it be that summer is winding down?

Correspondents The Brownsville States-Graphic page Thursday, August 18, 2011 Wellwood/ZionNews News Stanton News llwood/Zion Wellwood/Zion Stanton News Stanton News ByBy Denise Phillips by Denise Denise Phillips Phillips Since we were not at Zion Sunday morning, I had to depend on some of our deacons and other lay people for the sermon information. Can you believe they wanted me to stress that Brother Mark preached on wives being submissive to their husbands? However, they did say the sermon was taken from Titus 2 with the MAIN focus being, “Stay in the Word”! While our youth finished their movie Sunday night, Billy and Diane Wright continued the “American Heritage” video series. If you don’t have a church, Zion would be glad to have you and you would definitely be enlightened on the faith of our founding fathers. Thanks to Mike Hopper from the Hope of Glory Church for delivering the sermon Sunday night. He used Luke 24 and various other Scriptures to focus on recognition. Did Jesus ever come along beside you, and you failed to recognize Him? Mike also invited everyone to the church Thursday night for a fellowship. They will be across from the Veranda Restaurant. Just bring yourselves at 6 p.m. and come prepared to be filled! Thanks to my son, Jason, for helping get my computer lab clean Monday. Also, thanks to our secretary, Lane Gallespie for donating the blind. When we returned home, Alice Elrod (mama) spent the night with us since Norma was at the hospital with Jessie Lee. It’s always a blessing to have your mom spend some time with you. Mama joined Zion’s seniors Tuesday for a meal at Bozo’s Barbeque. There were ten attending, and everyone had a great time. Jessie Austin had another surgery on his foot Tuesday and got stitched up again. Jimmy and I went by to visit with him Thursday at his home. Although he was in pain, he is hopefully on the mend. Brother Mark Conway reported 17 attended the men’s prayer breakfast Thursday, and he presented the devotion. Anyone interested in joining this faithful group, come to Zion’s family life center Thursday morning at six. Jimmy and Jason cooked fish Friday for the men at Zion Gin and of course Norma. Justin, Britany and I enjoyed some of the leftovers for supper. Then, Justin and Britany washed Jimmy’s truck so that we could “look better” when we traveled to Franklin Saturday. They ended up going with us as we spent the night and celebrated Becky’s birthday with her! Tommy and Judy Elrod weren’t far behind, so we all gathered at one of her favorite eating places Saturday night. Of all the places, she wanted fish! Rachel Stewart enjoyed a few days in Texas last week visiting with her sister Sarah. She had a blast I’m sure, and lots of quiet time since she drove alone. Please pray for those who are sick, our military personnel and their families, the shutins, those who have lost loved ones and the leaders of our country. Also, pray for Zion’s Fall Revival beginning October 9 through 12. Call me at 772-4257 if you have news. People want to know! By H.Jones Jones by Martha Martha H. By Martha H. Jones Happy birthday to Jerry McClinton, Summer Jones, Amanda Stanley, Heath Pigue, Nancy Campbell and Mason Ellington. The Holly Grove stew is this Saturday, August 20, beginning at 12 p.m. This is always a special day at the church. Come and join in the fellowship and enjoy a plate of stew with drink, and a slice of homemade pie, or bring your container and purchase a quart or gallon to take home with you. There will also be a BBQ chicken to purchase. All the proceeds will go to the building fund of the church. Thanks to Debbie Jones for using her talent and creating brochures and posters to advertise the stew. If you haven’t seen these, you must. They have the leaders of the church and those who lead in the preparation of the stew in caricature. Our pastor is such a cute little fellow! Those on the sick list needing our prayers are Betty Friend, Ruth Taylor, Viola Brown, Fletcher Lewis and Ted Mann.

Your former Stanton Mayor and First Lady are having a blast with their new toy; I even got a ride on it myself! So if you see something bright red coming down the streets here in Stanton, it’s either Royce on his motorcycle or Ms. Eunice in her red Cadillac. Ms. Eunice – I’m still waiting on my Cadillac ride!

Prior to the services, a skit, entitled “The Tub of Sin” was presented by Rebekah Hopper, Kathy and Sierra McClinton, Courtney Forsythe and Kathy Hopper. Liz Rankin thrilled us as she sang the special music. Congratulations to Courtney Forsythe for being chosen by the Rotary Club to receive their scholarship this year. Courtney will begin her studies at UT Martin this fall. She is a member of Holly Grove Church. Also, congratulations to Peggy Emison, who graduated from West Tennessee Business College, making the Dean’s list each year. 11 him breathe better at night. Also include Doug Harvey, Sandra Posey, Mary McClinton, Elvin Wells and Steve Sullivan. Lorie Jones celebrated her birthday last Thursday night with her parents, Dewey and Martha Jones, and Alan and Debbie Jones and Jennifer. We enjoyed birthday cake and ice cream. Robert and Betty Barden thrilled her by sending her a vase of roses. A large number waited in line to visit with the family of Barbara Stafford and attended the funeral last Tuesday. Barbara’s five grandchildren told of their relationship with their grandmother. Family and friends will sorely miss her. Have you noticed the confused world we live in today? Children in school can’t read the Bible there, but those in prison can. A person who is testifying in court is required to put their hand on the Bible and swear to tell the truth, but the Ten Commandments are forbidden in the courtroom. What a mixed-up world. Retirement Center News By Shirley Tucker, Activity Director by Shirley Tucker, Activity By Shirley Tucker, ActivityDirector Director Happy birthday to Jack Fletcher! Diane and I went to his 80th birthday party Sunday afternoon with half the town. His girls, Margaret Ann, Peggy, Phyllis and Susan really know how to throw a party. Of course, his sister, Barbara McGary, who is one of our residents, was there with bells on. She was enjoying all the babies and little children who were there - and who were all kinfolk. They all love “Aunt Barbara.” Hope you have many more, Jack! Best wishes to James Howell this week as he recuperates in the hospital from a heart attack he had last week. Jessie has been sitting with him so he has been off several days, but he seems to be doing better and she is back working fast and furious. She’s the one who keeps our courtyard, front yard and inside looking so beautiful. As hot as it’s been, she’s had a fulltime job just keeping everything watered. You do a fabulous job, Jessie. Since she was out a few days I had to do the exercises with the residents last week. I decided I was tired of the exercise tape we have been using forever and so I used a new one. When we were through, the residents all let me know they loved the old one and didn’t care for the new one at all. In fact, Lyde Hamilton said the one I used was for “sissies” and old people. You do know what an old person is, don’t you? It’s any one 10 years older than you are. We had a big time playing a new game this week called “Take a Topic” that Diane bought us to keep our minds sharp. Grace Mulligan, Jottye Newman, Arline Boisvert, and I were on one team while Virginia Dickinson, “Bo” Pope, Katie McAdams and Wanda Currie were on the other team. The team I was on “almost” won, but the other team caught up with us and so we had a tie. Bummer! We don’t like “ties,” we want a real winner. We have several sore losers here of which I am chief. Josephine Willis is back from the hospital and looking and feeling so much better. We are glad to have her back. “Buddy” Moses and Mary Virginia came to check on her Tuesday and were pleased seeing her looking so great. Her son, John, was here checking on her too. Jottye Newman had some company this week when her twin sister, Lottye’s, daughter Betty Carlton came by to see her. Bob Moses dropped by to see Martha Jane Williams and all his other friends here. Mary Alice White came from Jackson to play the piano for us. What a wonder she is. We always play “Name that Tune” when she’s here since she plays a lot of “old” songs she thinks we’ve forgotten. She isn’t old enough to realize that it’s the “old” things we remember – the things we did yesterday is what we forget! Come see us – we promise not to forget YOU!

Charlotte Elizabeth Bruce was born 13 July 1846 in Haywood County and was the daughter of Dr. William C. Bruce and Charlotte Edney Grifﬁn. William was born in 1796 in Iredell County, NC and was one of seven children born to Arnold and Celia Allen Bruce. Charlotte (Lizzie) was raised quite the privileged and proper young lady in Brownsville. She was well educated and “a belle of the town.” Her father was one of the ﬁrst physicians to settle in Haywood County, and was a County Trustee and a member of the County Court of Haywood County. Dr. Bruce was in Brownsville as early as 1826. The Civil War and her father’s death in 1865 devastated the family fortunes. She moved to Louisville, KY in 1867. This is when she met Henry Slater. He was an “Englishman” and spoke precise English as only a proper Englishman can. They were married in Louisville, KY in 1873. Henry was 26 years her senior. He was born in London, England in 1821. He married and raised one family in London before immigrating to America. He came here after his ﬁrst wife passed away. Henry was a successful furniture upholsterer and a tin smith. He created ornate awnings and carpentry was also a specialty. He had his own business on 512 Union St. in Nashville. Their children are as follows: C. Earl Bruce: 1868-1944. He lived in Nashville; Alice Slater: 1875 in Louisville, KY. She died young; Arthur Slater: 1877 in Louisville, KY. He died of tetanus at the tender age of 14 in Nashville; Daisy Florence Kline: 1878 in Nashville. Lived in Shreveport, LA; Garﬁeld Slater: 1881-1957. He was named after President James A. Garﬁeld, who had passed away the night before Garﬁeld was born. He is Julie’s Great Grandfather and lived his entire life in Nashville. He followed his father’s trade; William Henry Slater: 1884-1975. Lived in Nashville. Followed his father’s trade. (Lost a leg in a hunting accident at nine years of age.) He walked with only one crutch! Lived to be 92; Bessie Maddox: 1886. Lived in Dayton, OH; and Hilliard Wood: 1889- Thursday, August 18, 2011 Hillville -- Eurekaton Eurekaton News Hillville News 1965. Mississippi. Henry passed away from a stroke in March of 1903. Lizzie took odd jobs to help support her family; she collected rent and was a seamstress. She had red hair and liked to play the guitar, sing and play with her grandchildren. Charlotte moved to Shreveport, LA to live with her daughter, Daisy, in 1926. Lizzie died on 21 October 1927 in Shreveport, Caddo Parish, LA. To be continued: Charlotte’s mother, Charlotte Grifﬁn was scalped by Indians. 1.

Jay, Elizabeth and Laura Kendrick spent last weekend in Knoxville. Laura will be attending UT as a sophomore. Doris Jernigan, who lives in the Allen community, had a visit last weekend from her daughter and son-inlaw. They are building a log house and doing it themselves. I mean cutting the logs and building it by themselves. This might be a good way to save money, but think about all that work! I get tired just thinking about it. 15 Hillville - Eurekaton News - Belle News Bethel - Eagle Belle Eagle News Last Friday night, over a thousand people attended the Southwest Electric Conference in Jackson. Those from this community that attended were James Earl and Nancy White, Kenneth and Bettye Sargent, Betty Scott, Junior and Nancye West, Bob and Carolyn Kendrick and Ann Cannon. We were all hoping to win a television, but we all came home disappointed. Maybe next year! A surprise birthday party for Richard Scott was held last Saturday at the home of Wade and Brandi Howard on Rudolph Road. Plenty page Karen Climer Strong, daughter of Farris and Patsy Climer, had her second surgery Thursday. This surgery was to repair the ﬁrst surgery. Let’s pray that this will solve her problem. Lucille Matlock went to the ear, nose and throat doctor and had her esophagus stretched. We hope that this will solve her problem also.

This was my last meeting as an ofﬁcer of the Mission Team as I will be fulﬁlling my term as District Treasurer at the end of the year.

Sympathy to the families of Mr. Miles Jones Jr., Mrs. Lela Bradford and Mr. David Tipton Jr. in the loss of their loved ones. “God is preparing a place for each of us in eternity.” This is our Thought for the Week as published in the Upper Room Devotional by JoAnn Decker of Florida. Jesus said he was going to prepare a place for us so that where he is we also will be. Jesus prepares our eternal home so that we may always be with him. Our destination and ﬁnal home is with our Creator. If you have news to share, please call me at 772-1885 after 5 p.m.Until next week, God bless.

I would like to think that the really hot days are over for this summer. We shall see. Linda Merrick, Lois Duffey, Bobbie Nolen, Jan Scallions and Emily Higginbottam enjoyed a day out on Thursday. They went to see the new movie “The Help” depicting life in Jackson, MS, during the 1950’s. They were also given a tour of Jane Moorer’s beautiful new home in Jackson. On Friday evening, most of them attended a fund raiser for Delores Gresham in Brownsville, where the Barnetts entertained. Martha Crutcher took a trip down memory lane going back to Hickory Valley to visit her parents’ graves, where she placed flowers. It had been many years since she had been there, and she was truly thankful for the opportunity to return. I was so honored to be able to attend the “100” Birthday Celebration for one of my favorite ladies. Mrs. Mary Neil Halbrook will have her birthday in a couple of weeks, and her grandchildren held a lovely party in her honor. Mrs. Halbrook and Sheila were absolutely beautiful, and it was delightful to see them. Mrs. Halbrook is also celebrating the birth of her new greatgreat grandson, Wells Mark Halbrook, who is the son of Jim and Alexis Halbrook and the grandson of Mark and Denise Halbrook.
