Local woman charged in toddler’s murder

Little Bells girl dies from brain injury A former Humboldt resident has been charged with first degree murder and aggravated rape of a child after her boyfriend’s 17-month-old daughter died over the weekend from injuries. Molly Jane Roe, 24, of 43 Greatest Cove in Bells, is now being held without bond, said Crockett County officials Monday

morning. Initially she was charged with Haley’s Law (aggravated) child abuse and her bond was $250,000. Roe remains in the Crockett County Jail after being arrested last Thursday. According to the affidavit, Roe is accused of throwing the child, when the toddler’s head hit a blunt object causing the brain

injury. Crockett County authorities said the impact caused a severe brain injury and the child was flown to Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital in Nashville. Along with the brain injury, it was discovered the child had bruising on the lower portion of her body in different areas, and a bite mark was discovered on her back. According to Investigator

Penny Curtis of the Crockett County Sheriff’s Department, the case remains under investigation. Roe is scheduled to appear in Crockett County General Sessions Court Thursday at 9 a.m. Roe’s 2-year-old son also lived at the residence in Bells. Curtis said he had no injuries and had been placed with family members. Roe is a graduate of

BY STEVE SHORT Gibson Coounty Commissioners plan to adopt a county redistricting plan when legislators reconvene Monday night, June 20 at 6 p.m. at the Agricomplex in Trenton. The state requires the commission to change boundaries of voting districts at least every 10 years if necessary so commission members represent substantially equal numbers of people. According to the 2010 census, the southeastern part of the county saw population gains of up to 58-percent while the city of Trenton and southwest part of the county declined in population by as much as 27-percent. A Redistricting Committee will be established to oversee redrawing boundaries

RELAY HONOREE– Cancer survivor Stacey Williamson rode in the Strawberry Festival Grand Floats Parade promoting this year’s Relay For Life. Williamson is the honorary chair this year and will speak during the luminaria ceremony during Relay for Life at Bailey Park this Friday night.

Relay for Life honors Williamson BY DANNY WADE People visiting the mayor’s office at the Municipal Building are used to seeing Stacey Williamson’s smiling face greet them. But for the fast few months, she has been on leave while battling cancer. Just last month Williamson returned to her job as city clerk and is proud to say she is cancer free. Now, to celebrate her clean bill of health, Williamson is this year’s Relay for Life honorary chair. She invites everyone to come out and celebrate with her and all the cancer survivors this Friday night at Bailey Park. “I’m just glad to be here,” Williamson said last week. “That’s what I tell everyone.” Relay for Life co-chairs, Susan Runions and Mike Hicks, discussed who would be this year’s honoree. One day while Runions was working the window at the bank, Williamson came through the drive-thru.

see COUNTY page 2A

That’s when Runions first thought, “Stacey would be a great candidate for honoree”. “I said to myself, she would be perfect,” Runions recalled. “She’s young and cute. People often times think of cancer as someone older.” Runions said it was a unanimous decision by the committee and asked Williamson to be honorary chair. Williamson was first diagnosed with stomach cancer in May 2010. Prior to that in March, she was having acid reflux issues and went to her doctor. After several treatments for reflux, none seemed to work. That is when more tests were run and results confirmed it was indeed cancer. “I was treated (for cancer) at Vanderbilt in June,” Williamson said. “But I was able to have chemo treatments in Jackson from July through

Medina complex coming BY STEVE SHORT The Medina city board voted unanimously June 6 to build a new, $2.3 million municipal complex to headquarter city government agencies. The 14,177 sq. ft. building will be on 1.5 acres on Hwy 45 just north of The Bank of Milan and will house fire and police departments and offices for mayor and department heads. A courtroom will seat 195 people and function as a city council and conference room. Funding will come via a $2,982,000 loan from the Dept. of Agriculture with an interest rate of 4-percent to 4.5-percent, officials said. The board authorized the city to incur the indebtedness of the loan.

Ditch the workout, join the party with Zumba BY APRIL G. JACKSON The women come prepared, towels and water bottles in tow. From teens to retirees, they arrive in all shapes, sizes and degrees of fitness. They greet one another, chat, laugh, and stretch while some tie slinky little coin-embellished scarves around their waists. It’s Zumba time and the bright scarves are Zumba skirts. Once the music begins, the movement begins. For a solid hour, almost non-stop, high-energy dance steps and Latin-influence meet rock and roll, aerobics and toning. The skirts are optional fun, but comfortable workout clothes and shoes are a safe bet. Folks from all walks of life are enjoying the Zumba

An American hero remembers to the end Knox, Kentucky, Byrd was sent to Fort Benning, Georgia to train with the 41st infantry of the 2nd Armored Division. Under the leadership of George W. Patton, Byrd’s regiment set sail for North Africa. This was America’s first amphibious landing of the war. While on duty in Morocco, he was privileged to serve as guard for a meeting held between Winston Churchill and President Roosevelt. He also participated in a battle demonstration especially for the two leaders From North Africa, the 41st, with Byrd in the first boat, headed for the invasion of Sicily. Byrd was a witness to the paratroopers hit and killed by both enemy and friendly fire the night before his company arrived. “Silk parachutes were hanging on buildings all over town� he said. (Having attended the wedding of an English officer, somewhat later,

Byrd noted that the bride was wearing a gown made from silk parachutes!) According to his journal, Byrd’s first major combat was at Tidworth Barracks, England, during July 28-29. “Fighting was vicious handto-hand combat with the use of grenades and bayonets,� he wrote. Afterwards, still under Patton’s command, he headed to France, then on to Belgium, where the 41st became engaged in the largest tank counterattack ever. It was during the Battle of the Bulge, that James Byrd sustained injuries that ended his combat career: catching shrapnel in his thigh, cutting the main artery. The medic was nearby so he was attended quickly. His comrades laid him in the road, explaining that if placed beside the road the tanks would not see him. From morning to evening he laid, moving his arms and what he could of his legs to keep from freezing in the snow. When

PATRIOT FOREVER - Humboldt native James Elbert Byrd, of Adams Place Assisted Living in Murfreesboro, who was wounded in WWII, was proud to serve his Country. That’s why an American Flag snaps in the breeze during a Fourth of July ceremony last year. He died 13 days later, at the age of 91.

BY PEGGY BYRD Certainly, some dates on the calendar are more important than others, simply because of what they stand for. November 24, December 25, January 1, June 14, July 4‌Whoa, wait a minute! June 14? You know, it’s the birthday of “our Flag?â€? This week is the 234th anniversary of the Stars and Stripes of America. With the Fourth of July coming up, I want to share with you an astounding photograph, and the story of a WWII veteran that defended our country and its flag. When the draft was started by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, in 1940, James Elbert Byrd, a Humboldt resident, was 22 years old, waiting for his number to be called. He was drafted into the US Army on Nov. 6, 1941. Thirty-one days before the bombing of Pearl Harbor. After “basicâ€? at Fort

evening approached some infantrymen dragged him to a shed for the night. It was the next day that he was finally rescued. A series of five operations over the next 3 years ended in a final amputation just below the knee. He was sent to Battle Creek, Michigan for recuperation and discharged in June of 1946, with the rank of Master Sgt. He was awarded numerous medals, citations and ribbons. The GI Bill paid for most of his college tuition. He went on to be a Vocational Agriculture teacher at Kittrel and Riverdale High Schools. His wife Anna, also served in World War II as a Sgt. In the Signal Corp. They had three daughters Beverly, Karen, and Nancy, (whose husband Frank is a retired Army veteran) and three grandchildren. When my friend Beverly Kimbro, of Jackson, reads these words, she can close her eyes and hear her daddy’s voice all over again.

In Humboldt, many women are enjoying a class taught by Kim Hunley, Carla Jones and Dottie Rinks. “Our classes are for every ‘body’ regardless of age, gender, fitness level or dance ability. If you are moving and having fun, you are doing it right,� says Jones. “I started taking Zumba classes last year and immediately got hooked. I was amazed at how quickly I began to tone and firm up as well as lose inches and weight. I wanted to share my passion with others so I got my license to teach Zumba classes. I love teaching and we have fun in our classes. Zumba is the most motivating and

Carla Jones, Dottie Rinks and Kim Hunley instruct Zumba in Humboldt. exciting program to help everyone get fit and reach their goals,� Jones said. “ Zumba is one of the most exciting non-exercising classes I have ever been a part of,� said Rinks. “ I really don’t feel like I am working out. I feel like I am at a party with friends and we are just having a good time. I am able to let loose and relax and have fun, something that everyone needs to learn to do. Life is too short to take everything so serious, so Zumba is my outlet. It is true, their motto is ‘Ditch the workout and join the party,’ and that is exactly what it is!� she added. “We all got certified to teach because we wanted the people in Humboldt to have Zumba classes here,� said Hunley. “We all three started taking Zumba classes over a year ago an we all

got hooked on it! We also want people to know how much fun you can have and at the same time burn lots of calories,� said Hunley. The benefits of Zumba are many, notes Jones. It increases your energy, self-esteem, mental focus, strength and stamina. Your body’s metabolic rate improves your appetite for healthy foods and makes the body use calories more efficiently resulting in weight loss. It reduces depression, stress levels, cholesterol and blood pressure levels. The Zumba workout adds radiance to your complexion, enhances quality of sleep, improves digestion and body shape, plus it tones and firms muscles. Zumba is very good for a woman’s mid section or core, says Hunley. A lot of the dances concentrate on

Humboldt Zumba instructors say if you are moving and having fun, you are doing Zumba ‘right’. It’s possible to burn 1,000 calories with one good Zumba workout.

Those touched by cancer know the dark times this disease can bring. But even amid the darkness, lights of hope and comfort shine. The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is an overnight event that unites community members against cancer. One of the cornerstones of this important event is the luminaria ceremony, where candles shine in honor of those who battle cancer and in memory of those who have been lost. As Relay For Life participants walk throughout the night, the luminaria light their journey. If someone in your life has been touched by cancer, order a luminaria in their honor or memory. Your donation will help fund the American Cancer Society’s fight against this disease, including research to help find a cure. To order luminaria for your local Relay For Life, contact your American Cancer Society at 1-800-ACS-2345 or visit

Currently the county has 19 districts, some of which have multiple commissioners. “I don’t understand having multiple seat districts,� said Mayor Witherspoon. “We will have several different options with a new map and could go to twenty-five districts with one commissioner representing each district. Each commissioner will represent a little less than 2,000 people. My goal is to have our county map approved in September.� Commissioners will elect members of the 911 board. Three incumbents - Joe Eddlemon, James Fountain and Austin Lewis – are recommended for new 6-yr. terms. In May commissioners were reluctant to make appointments, asking for a larger voice on the 911 board.

Chronicle notes

Relay for Life gears up Friday evening BY DANNY WADE School is out, June has rolled in—so let the summer fun begin. And what better way to celebrate than with Relay for Life and honor those who fought cancer and won! Humboldt Relay for Life is this Friday at Bailey Park. Festivities begin at 6 p.m. with opening ceremonies. Prior to that, SonShiner’s Choir will be performing as guests arrive. Survivor registration will be at 5 p.m. The event wraps up at 6 a.m. Saturday morning. “There will be something for everyone,” said Relay co-chair Susan Runions. Lots of games and entertainment are lined up this year including inflatables for the kids, petting zoo, putting green, mechanical bull, rock climbing wall, movies and a dunking booth. Bring your appetite as many of the teams will be selling delicious food as part of their fundraiser for Relay for Life. After opening ceremonies, survivors will be recognized as they take a victory lap around the walking trail at Bailey Park. Then another victory lap will be made honoring the caregivers who helped the cancer survivors in their hours of need. Following that will be the team lap where every team participant will make their way around the track. At 10 p.m. the mood will change from joy and excitement to one of somberness. This will be the luminaria ceremony, a time to honor those who lost their battle with cancer. Stacey Williamson, Relay honorary chair, will take the stage and tell her account of her battle with cancer. Williamson’s is a touching story similar to so many of the lives who will be attending Relay for Life. This will also be a time to celebrate with Williamson and those who won their fight with the dreaded and often deadly disease. Throughout the evening and into the night and early morning hours, entertainment will be nonstop. A number of singers and musicians are slated to perform including Cicely

Medina from page 1A City leaders have considered locating a municipal downtown at a cost of $3.025 million, including renovations of older buildings. They say they’ve outgrown the current city hall. Officials said Census figures from 2010 show Medina as Tennessee’s fourth fastest growing city, going from 969 people in 2000 to 3,479 people in 2010, a growth rate of 259 percent. The population continued to increase, officials said, listing the current population as 3,496 people, a 234 percent growth in just over ten years. “I’m proud to see Medina moving forward for the future,” said board member Jonathan Roland after the vote on the building. “The cost is a concern, but I think we’ve looked at it long enough. We’ve gone down in size with the building to get something we can afford.” Mayor Vance Coleman said reductions were made in building plans to save costs, but he thinks the building will serve city needs and allow for expansion. “I do understand your concerns, and you might not see the needs,” Mr. Coleman told board members. “But if you come down here (to city hall) on a daily basis, you’ll see the need to move out of this building and get into the building we’ve talked about out.” The Mayor said Medina has spent money on new parks, road improvements, fire and police departments and other needs. He sees

Floyd, Megan Reece, Scott Myatt, The Nail Sisters, Larry Spencer and Michael Butler. And for those “wanna-be” singers, there will be Relay Idol and later, Karaoke. Other attractions will be the womanless beauty revue, “Dude Looks Like a Lady”. Mike Hicks, who is Relay co-chair this year and is the reigning queen, will crown his successor as Relay Queen. Unfortunately (or fortunately) this competition does not qualify the winner as a participant in the Miss Tennessee Pageant. Several cake walks will take place as the evening progresses. And for those lucky winners who might want to burn a few calories after eating, there will be Zumba with instructor Kim Hunley. There are 17 teams signed up for Relay this year. They are Just Us Riders, Morning Star Baptist Church, Survivors, WalMart, Humboldt Utilities, Humboldt Parks & Recreation, BancorpSouth, Relay Committee, First Baptist Church, Super D, Bailey Park CLC, St. James, InfoStructure, Humboldt Manor, First State Bank and last but certainly not least is the one-person team of community volunteer extraordinaire, Betty Jo Shaver. Relay for Life epitomizes a cancer patient’s struggle. It starts at dusk and ends at the light of day. The setting sun symbolizes the time a person has been diagnosed with cancer. As the evening goes on it gets colder and darker, just as the emotions of the cancer patient. Around 1 – 2 a.m. represents the time the patient begins treatment. They become exhausted and not wanting to go on, they think of possibly giving up. Around 4 – 5 a.m. signifies the coming of the end of treatment. Again they feel tired but they know they will make it. The sun rising represents the end of treatment. They see the light at the end of the tunnel and know that life will go on. So Friday night, come out to Bailey Park and join Williamson, Runions and Hicks and celebrate Relay for Life in Humboldt.

the municipal building as a “great need.” “We’re investing back in our city like we want retail and commercial businesses coming in to invest in our city,” he said. “I really think (the new building) is one of those things that might be a key to some of this stuff moving. When they see ground moving on the bypass they‘ll see we’re not sitting back.” Coleman said plans for the center will have to be approved by the comptroller and USDA. A “long process” is expected. In a best case scenario, the building could be completed in 18 months, said board members. Board member Julian Wiser had expressed concerns about the building cost, but he voted for the plan. “I’m not real big on $2.3 million, but the fire department needs a building, and police and city employees need a building,” he said. “I felt like we could have done something with about half the money, but this grant is one time shot. …I think it will help our community in the long run.” City Recorder Kim Gilley and Police Chief Chad Lowery both thanked the board.

from page 1A September.” The day before her first chemo treatment, Williamson had a chemo bag inserted. “I called it Lucy,” she joked. “I had Lucy with me all the time. I hated her.” In October 2010, Williamson had a total stomach removal at Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville. When Williamson returned home, she had home healthcare come in. But she really praises her daughter Akilah and son Kareem for helping her through the tough time. Akilah was about to begin her senior year at Milan High School. This was a very trying time for Williamson and her daughter. Akilah had to do a lot of school work and preparation herself, including applying for college. She has now been accepted to Bethel University this fall. Williamson said she is so proud of her daughter and believes staying busy with school and at work helped Akilah cope during the year. “My son really stepped up to the plate,” Williamson added. “He would say, ‘Mom, what can I do?’ He’s very caring.” “They were very strong and positive,” Williamson noted. “They didn’t cry, maybe because I didn’t cry.” Williamson’s mother, Barbara Pearson, was her caregiver during this scariest time of her life. “There was a period when I wasn’t sure I was gong to make it,” she admits. “You hear of those who didn’t win the battle, some were sick the same time I was.” But now Williamson’s health and strength are coming back. She started walking around her block for exercise. At first it was one trip, then she worked up to two. Now she can do five laps around her neighborhood block. “One day I wondered just how far it is around the block so I got in my car to measure the distance,” Williamson said. “It is exactly one mile, so I’ve been walking five miles,” she said with a smile, reflecting her personal victory. “It’s a process but I’m getting there,” Williamson said. “The hard part is over.”

Grape vines, rainwater ditches made summer fun When I was a little girl growing up on a farm, we didn’t have T.V. or the games and toys that kids have today. We made our toys and made our games. Here are some of the things we did and played growing up in the country. We played marbles, baseball, horseshoes, pitched washers, hide and seek, Annie over, hop-scotch, mumbly pig and we also made clover chains. We did something that I would not want my kids, or now, my grandkids to do. We played in the barn. Sometimes we jumped out of the hay loft. I’m surprised we didn’t break our bones. My Mama said she would look out to check on me, and she never knew what I would have climbed on top of. She said anywhere I could put my big toes, I could climb. I would climb trees, climb on the outdoor toilet, the hen


house, or the smoke house. We also loved to swing on grape vines. We would take an old cardboard box, flatten it out, sit on it, and slide down big hills or creek banks. We also would get inside large truck tires and roll down hills in them. Crazy, yes, but we had fun, good old country summer fun. After a rain, we would often take off our shoes and wade in the rain water in the ditches, and feel the mud squeeze between our toes. That was fun. Our fun didn’t require any batteries or battery chargers. There was no assembly required. There were no warranty cards to send. What we had was good old country summer fun. Put down your cell phone and try it, you might like it.

Gibson Co. mayor explains surplus

(Editor’s note: In the following letter Gibson Co. Mayor Tom Witherspoon explains that the county needs to maintain a fund balance of about $3 million as recommended by the state County Technical Assistance Service. Recently Witherspoon announced that the county anticipated a surplus of $2.3 million.) There has been much talk as of late regarding Gibson County’s potential fund balance. Operating fund balances are a necessary budgetary mechanism whether you are operating a business, a county government or your household budget. CTAS (County Technical Assistance Service) is a service provided by the Univ. of Tennessee to assist all 95 counties in a wide array of issues including budgetary matters. CTAS recommends that a fund balance equivalent to three months of normal operating expenses should be standard operating procedure. That being said, Gibson County’s fund balance should be in the neighborhood of $3 million. Fund balances are not an uncommon occurrence. What successful company do you know of that considers budgeting themselves to the point of financial default “a good business practice?” They do not.

Are older Americans swindling their children? BY DR. MARK W. HENDRICKSON Few things could tear a society apart more than having the economic interests of young and old arrayed against each other. Yet this is the inevitable bitter fruit of chronic deficit spending and unending accumulation of debt in America. Our Founding Fathers warned of this danger. In his Farewell Address, George Washington urged Congress to strive to quickly retire debts resulting from occasional and hopefully infrequent wars instead of “throwing upon posterity the burthen [sic] which we ourselves ought to bear.” Thomas Jefferson could think of few things more unjust than loading the living generation with the debt of those who have already died. Writing to John Taylor in 1816, Jefferson wrote that “the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity … is but swindling futurity on a large scale.” Rather than sentencing today’s younger Americans to a lifetime of bondage to debts that we have incurred, justice and mercy suggest that we need to retire the federal debt burden. We must begin shrinking federal spending this year. If we don’t slay the debt monster, our children may someday—and justifiably—curse us.


True or false

Page 4A Humboldt Chronicle, Wednesday, June 15, 2011



Although maintaining a healthy fund balance should be, and in most cases is considered to be a good thing by most everyone, there will still be those that would like to make political fodder of it. Before we do this I would ask that we consider a couple of things. Our county tax rate, which provides us with all the services we enjoy, is set by our county commissioners. Our county commissioners pay these taxes too. Are we to believe that we have a county commission made up of people who dedicate countless hours of their personal time for very little pay, simply because it is their intention to deceive the public in an attempt to raise taxes on themselves? Could someone please help me see the logic in this? Fact of business is, although I don’t always see eye-toeye with all our commissioners, I know in my heart, and I see with my eyes as I work with them, that these men and women labor tirelessly to see to it we are providing excellent services at a reasonable tax rate to the public. And we do. For those who feel like we have it bad here in Gibson County, I would ask them take a look around. I attend many statewide meetings of elected officials where I have the opportunity to interact with my fellow county mayors to share ideas and discuss current issues facing our respective counties. Believe me when I say that there are plenty of counties that would trade places with Gibson Co. in a heartbeat in terms of tax rate, debt exposure and quality of services. We still have, and will continue to have areas in need of improvement throughout our county government. I strongly believe that we as individuals and as a county are either in a state of improvement or a state of decline. It is my job as your mayor to see to it that we strive to move forward in a state of constant improvement till we reach that place in our county’s future where we all agree we should be. We have been through a rough patch as a county and a nation over the past several years, but I feel more optimistically than ever that our future is bright. Let’s work together to prepare for it. My Granddaddy Jack told me many years ago, “If you get out of bed in the morning looking for something to get mad about, you’re gonna find it all day long.” I think he knew what he was talking about. That being said, let’s all remember to take a few moments to quietly count our many blessings before we kick the door of the ‘Complaint Department’ in. I would really appreciate it. Stay positive, work hard, move forward. Tom Witherspoon Gibson County Mayor

It appears there are people in the world who have more time on their hands than I do. To illustrate, how about this true or false facts quiz. Here are 10 facts, and nine are true. Can you guess the false one? 1. The Bible, the world’s best selling book, is also the world’s most shoplifted book. 2. Someone paid $14,000 for the bra worn by Marilyn Monroe in the movie ‘Some Like It Hot’. 3. Your tongue is the only muscle in your body attached at only one end. 4. More than 1,000 different languages are spoken on the continent of Africa. 5. In the USA over 11,000 people have visited a tortilla chip that appears to have the face of Jesus Christ burned into it. 6. A kiss lasting one minute can burn more than 1,000 calories. 7. Buckingham Palace in London has more than six hundred rooms. 8. There was once an underwater post office in the Bahamas. 9. Abraham Lincoln’s mother died when she drank the milk of a cow that grazed on poisonous snakeroot. 10. After the death of Albert Einstein his brain was removed by a pathologist and put in a jar for future study. That’s the list and after reading it I would have thought that all could very well be false. However, the source from the internet tells us it is number 6. A kiss lasting one minute burns only 30 calories. Guess that shows that kissing is not a preferred method in burning calories for those who might want to lose weight. Now that Mother’s Day is past and we can look forward soon to Father’s Day, I pose this question. Why is it okay for a woman to get her husband an electric drill for Father’s Day, but on Mother’s day if a man gets his wife an electric can opener......hooo’s not good. There surely must be a logical explanation.



Area eligible for relief

BY SENATOR LOWE FINNEY There is no doubt that summer is here and it is hot! Tiffany and I have been working in the flower beds and around the house, trying to take advantage of the sunny weather and keep cool at the same time. It’s hard to believe that just a few weeks ago, we were dealing with strong storms and tornadoes that have caused widespread damage across our state and our region. In the days since the legislative session ended, there has been a lot of attention given to hot-button issues such as jobs creation and teachers’ rights. In the midst of these debates, we also passed several other important bills that haven’t received as much attention. In the coming weeks, I want to make you aware of some of those bills that I passed that could have a big impact on West Tennesseans, starting with those that have suffered losses in recent storms. First, I want to remind folks that we extended sales tax relief for victims of the May 2010 floods, but the deadline for refund applications is quickly approaching. The extension applied to purchases through the end of April of this year, and the deadline for filing a refund application with the state Department of Revenue is June 30. For more information, visit the Department of Revenue’s website at and click on “Flood Relief Information,” or call (615) 253-0600. Between the floods of last year and the multiple damaging storms we have suffered so far this year, it seems like we have received little rest from extreme weather. Many folks in our area are beginning to consider storm shelters for their homes in order to protect their families during severe weather. I cosponsored legislation to provide up to $2,500 in sales tax relief on materials for storm shelters, beginning July 1 and continuing through the end of the year. More information on the refund will be coming soon from the Department of Revenue, but hopefully this program will allow more Tennesseans to have a safe place during the tornadoes and storms that have become a part of life in our area. Finally, please be aware that all three counties I serve have been declared federal disaster areas for various storms and flooding in April. Gibson County residents affected by the Mississippi River flooding in mid-April are eligible for federal relief, as are Carroll and Madison County residents who suffered damages from late April storms and flooding. Those affected can register online at, or by calling 1-800621-FEMA (3362). As always, please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions, comments or suggestions regarding storm relief or anything else on your mind. The recent townhalls in the district were refreshing for me, and we will be planning more of them this fall. In the mean time, stay cool. Senator Lowe Finney represents Madison, Carroll and Gibson Counties. Contact him at sen.lowe. or (731) 424-0461.

Youth Choir

Dallas youth choir performs at First United Methodist BY WALTER WARMATH Thursday evening, June 5, the Youth Choir from First Methodist Church of Dallas, Texas gave an outstanding concert of choral and handbell music at first Methodist Church in Humboldt. This choir of 60 members has been trained and developed by very gifted leadership. You cannot achieve this level of excellence without the willingness of the choirsters to give the amount of time required. The first part of the concert was sacred music. Several senior members offered solos, or which the standout was the baritone John Godbey. The tonal quality, diction, and pitch accuracy of the choir was excellent. There was a unanimity of vowel and consonant sounds which made every word easy to understand. The handbell

choir was conducted by their own handbell director. The arrangements were very interesting and the variety of sounds and harmonies were very pleasing to the ear. The last part of the concert was medleys from Shrek: The Musical; Seussical, The Musical and a very humorous handbell selection from Spamalot. There were many unusual sounds contained in the Spamalot selection including percussion, whistles, aspirin bottles and etc. The choir performed all these selections with great energy, a lot of body movements, but always with good tone. No shouting or screaming for effect. The concert closed with a setting of one of my favorite texts; the Irish Blessing (May the road rise to meet you). The audience was very enthusiastic and showed their appreciation for a most enjoyable evening.

Betty and I celebrated 57 years of marriage Sunday, June 5. Some years ago I was informed that June was the best month for marriages, and it certainly has proven so for us, and for two other couples of the Humboldt Church of Christ. Brother and sister Charles and Juanita Overall will observe their anniversary June 17 and brother and sister Michael and Christy Shearon will likewise observe theirs on June 22. And two of our young people, Brittney Nicole Adkisson and Jason Edward Wall were to be married in our building on Saturday, June 11. Yes, it is good that nine came together in the month of June to participate in a lifetime of commitment. No, that isn’t a misprint. In Christian marriages there is always a third person. It is God, and the couple is expected to stay together until death forces a dissolution of the marriage. But there are other good things we of the Humboldt Church of Christ are observing in June. Seven of our members were born in June. They are Louise Lovett (5), Tony Williams (13), Shine Ballentine (16),

Boone Humphreys (18), Charles Overall (19), Juanita Overall (22) and Evelyn Holder (24). If you are in our area Wednesday night June 15, we invite you to meet with us at 7 p.m. when Manley Luscombe, from Cades will be speaking on “When Good Things Happen to Bad People�. This is the third in our Summer Series of 13 gospel preachers. Our Young at Hearts group will be meeting on June 16 for a brown bag lunch, a short lesson presented by brother Tim Roland, and games in our annex. If you would like to join them bring your own brown bag lunch and meet with them at 11 a.m. The church is planning on taking our van to Pleasant Hill Friday, June 17, at 6:30 p.m. to meet with other brethren throughout the area for a night of gospel singing. If you would like to know more about what is going on with the Church of Christ at Humboldt you may contact the office on 1515 N. 30th Ave at 784-3862, brother Tim Roland at 487-3255, or myself at 784-8788.

Gibson by Mary Ruth Atkins & Barbara Morris

Barbara: My small garden (four tomatoes, one okra, one bell pepper, one eggplant and one squash) looks sad and thirsty. From time to time I have to go to the professionals like Alan Pafford, Irby Sanders and Velma Malone, for advice and help concerning my garden. Velma has already picked one cucumber and two squash from her garden. And in the past, has won many blue ribbons on her crops at the Gibson County Fair. Alan Pafford has tomatoes plants, 3 feet tall and many green ones, corn, green beans, cucumbers, and to quote Alan “They are pretty.� You can see Irby Sanders’ garden from Highway 79. His tomatoes are “pretty� also; therefore, if my garden dries up I am not going to worry, I’m going to pay visit to Velma, or Alan or Irby. Vacation Bible School at Gibson Baptist Church is over. The average attendance at Bible school was 100. The teachers are tired but have a good feeling about the job they did at bible school. Hopefully this time studying the Bible will make a difference in some child’s life. Fabulous Females will meet on June 24 at the Gibson Store and Cafe in Gibson. You are invited to come and have lunch with these fabulous women. They are fun to be with and the conversation is always lively. Mary Jo Elliott, lives on Rozelle St, has shingles in her eye. Shingles is a painful skin rash, often with blisters. Mary Jo said the pain she is having is quite severe. I remember, A.C. West’s brother had shingles in his eye and he also suffered and was very uncomfortable. A single dose of shingles vaccine is recommended for adults 60 years of age and older. Seeing what Mary Jo and some of my other friends have gone through with shingles, this vaccine might be something worth taking. Ask Mary Jo if you are in doubt. The city planters are beautiful and very colorful. This time of the year with the heat we have been having, it is a huge job keeping these planters watered and healthy. The garden club members are doing a great job keeping them healthy. I read in the Chronicle where Gibson County Special District board authorized purchase of land for $40,000.00 for Medina Elementary School. The city of Gibson has a great piece of land for an elementary school and the land would be free for them to build on. I do not understand why we have been overlooked so many times for a school. We once had a great school, supported by the community and loved by the students. Gibson is the only incorporated town in Gibson County that does not have a school. Suppose I am a Pollyanna, I’m still hoping one day the school board will remember us. Ge Ge Pafford had her surgery but is still in the hospital in Memphis. Our prayers are with her and her family. Mary Ruth: My son came home from the hospital this morning after having cardiac ablation (if you know what that is) and the nurse that checked him out was Johnny and Betty Williams’ daughter. It’s a small world after all. I hope his breathing will improve. I’ve been very worried. Bro. Gib and Ellen Tucker and I have a new air conditioner, so we should be able to keep cool. We jumped from winter to summer. I enjoy sitting

on the carport and bird watching and looking at my day lilies. I have so many lovely ones that I can’t see from the carport and my walking is limited, so I can’t enjoy them all. Lisa Blankenship gave a lecture on Harry Potter at the Milan library Tuesday. There were 30 kids present. Lisa made Harry Potter clothing and modeled it. Louise Prince was hostess to her family reunion this weekend.

Precinct One by Donna Seymour

Pastor Brabham delivered a powerful message during the morning worship service at Morning Star Baptist Church. He stated that we have lost pride in our communities and that we are not our brother’s keepers anymore. He went on to say that part of living is that we live a life that is worth being followed by someone. He posed this question, “What kind of example are you setting?� Last, but not least, he admonished the congregation to hang out with people who have Jesus with them. Saturday was Ladies Day Out for some of MSMBC ladies who could spare some time to motor to Memphis, TN. They reported a very enjoyable time, fellowshipping, shopping, enjoying a delicious meal, and a walk down historic Beale Street. Ladies going on the trip included Stephanie Sharp(WQ Chairperson), Velma Carter and Renee Johnson (Co-Chs), Ruth Jean Brown, Connie Ross, Kathleen Smith, Hazel McCutcheon, Mamie Donald, Margaret Beard, Ann Hicks, Melvie Hicks, Diane Glenn, Felita Gentry and Melvie Gentry. Escorting them around some of the Memphis sights was Memphian Zundra Smith, former Humboldtan. Revival is still in progress at the Lighthouse Of Ministries on Thursday and Friday, June 16 and 17, 7 P.M., Craddock Street. Guest speaker will be Bishop Elroy Hicks, The Church of God, Dyer, TN. Host pastors: Apostle Mark Perry & Prophetess Gail Perry. The public is invited. The Pea Ridge Book Club members took a trip this weekend to Hennings, TN, to the Alex Haley Museum & Interpretive Center. They reported having a great time. Following the museum visit, they did some shopping at Charlene’s and enjoy a sumptious lunch. Alex Haley’s book, Roots, was an inspiration to many and inspired many to trace their own roots. Attending

from Humboldt was Alice Murriel. Deborah Hutton Seward is president of the book club. Happy Birthday to Angela Ross, (June 14), LeShante’ Sherrie Tyson(June 16), Linda Fly-Tyson (June 28) and Carolyn Perry (June 24)

Williams Chapel by Brooksie Burnett

Recently at Williams Chapel, the last respects were shown for a dear, and one of the oldest members, Marie Porter. Many friends and family folks joined the bereaved family Saturday at 12 p.m. Sister Flora Claybrook was the M.C. and the Prelude Minister Don Singleton. Amazing Grace was sung and prayer heard. It was a very nice program, with the Eulogy by Minister George Starks, who gave a very fine and heart felt message. Marie became a Christian when she was just a girl and joined Williams Chapel Baptist Church. She was a member for many years. She left a lovely family. Some came from far away cities. Recently we are in the season of more and many occasions, also the season of Father’s Day. I have thought more about Father’s Day. Ideal fathers are what it’s all about. The father has many branches and fields of life. This is about ideal fathers are worthy of great honor. Psalms 8:4, the question was asked “What is a man?� That thou are mindful of him and the Son of Man. That thou visits him for thou hast made him a little lower than the angels and hast crowned him with glory and honor. Thou have made him to have dominion over the works of thy hands and under his feet.� A worthy man is more like God. And also, when that same man finds the woman he loves, she can get his mind, his heart, his keys, his pocket book, if she wants it. Another man said that’s the whole truth. He added that the right kind of woman could change the world through men folk and children. How then? Give her husband more attention, put her mind to her family, take out more time, and sacrifice some things for her family. A good man is like a dear child. The woman he loves can get his heart and mind if she goes at it right. Charity begins at home and it spreads abroad. From home go people to all walks of life. A child’s heart is like a white sheet of paper. Some real facts of life must be printed there. Charity begins at home and it spreads abroad. Some seeds must be

planted at the right time to catch the right season. The mother and father are the seed sowers. A good father and mother are worthy to be praised. Children honor your mother and father. Do something different on their day. He could be young or he could be old like the old hand saw, axe, shovel, or broom, worn down with time written on it. It’s better to pick a honey suckle from beside the road, pop him some corn, or just play peep pie with him. We only have one father and mother and I say to all the fathers out there, Happy Father’s Day!

Student takes spelling talent to Washington D.C. in national bee


SPELLING WHIZ - Jasmine Brandt’s well-used study dictionary is marked with reminders, sharing the table with her regional spelling bee trophy.

BY APRIL G. JACKSON Her favorite word is hyperbole. “It’s like saying ‘a mile high ice cream cone’,” explains Jasmine Brandt. Words are her specialty and at 12-years-old, she’s just beginning to explore all their possibilities. Jasmine recently returned from Washington D.C., where she was among 275 spelling bee winners from around the world, competing in the Scripps National Spelling Bee. She qualified by winning the West Tennessee Regional Spelling Bee in March, outspelling 35 other students. She was a little surprised when she won the regional: “But I knew some didn’t study as much, so that gave me an advantage.” “I like words. I’ve always enjoyed words and spelling,” says Jasmine, but she adds she isn’t particularly fond of English studies. “But I really like reading.” She recalls understanding the impact of words when she forged ahead of the 3rd grade spelling book a few years ago. And her mom, Bethany, recalls Jasmine teaching herself to read at 4-years old. At the nationals, Jasmine tied for 42nd place and the top 41 went on to the semi-finals. She enjoyed meeting students from around the world, including China, Japan, South Korea and Jamaica. She intends to study harder and compete again inext year.

The homeschooled 6th grader was at her first spelling bee as a 4th grader and has competed each year since then. To her spelling is fun, but bees require disciplined study. “Serdab,”for instance, is a basement. It was one of the words she spelled correctly in the national contest. Unfortunately, she says, she’s a visual learner. Definitions help a great deal, especially with homonyms (words that sound alike but are spelled differently with different meanings). Once she has learned a set of new words, in a couple of months, she admits she forgets. To stay sharp, she makes lists of words and goes back to them two weeks or a month later to review. Although she knows many, she doesn’t ever expect to learn them all. She notes there are 475,000 words in the 11pound dictionary she studies from. Page markers peep from the massive volume showing her study trails. Jasmine is the daughter of Bethany and John Brandt of Humboldt. She has a sister, Hannah and a brother, Noah. Her dad and sister joined her on the Washington trip where they enjoyed a capitol tour during an unseasonably hot spring. “We are so proud of her. John and I were more nervous than she was at the regional bee,” laughs Mrs. Brandt. Looking to the future, Jasmine’s options are wide open and she’s interested in many professions. “Maybe TV, “ she says, “or journalism, or maybe working in spelling bees.”

Temperatures on the rise, Cal Ripken League heats up BY BARRY DELOACH With just a couple of weeks left in the regular season, games are really heating up. On Monday night last week, the Pirates beat the Dodgers in the bottom of the fourth as Shane Hinson scored on a wild pitch for a 12-11 win for the Chamber of Commerce. Then on Tuesday night, the Dodgers took it on the chin again as the Exchange Yankees broke a 4-4 tie in the bottom of the fourth when Larry Johnson Jr. scored the goahead run to go up 5-4. Johnson then struck out the side in the top of the fifth to earn the win for the Yankees. Pirates 12 Dodgers 11 The Rotary Dodgers jumped out of the gates quickly in the top of the first as they sent eight batters to the plate in the inning. Jordan Powell got things going with a single to start the game followed by walks to Qua Cunningham, Michael Scott, Izaya Brown and Isaac Cunningham. Powell, Q. Cunningham and Scott all came around to score. The Dodgers did however leave two runners on in scoring position. The Pirates got a 1-out double from Matthew Watson and then an RBI-double off the bat of Tyler Boykin to cut the lead down to 31. Powell started on the hill for the Dodgers and got a fly ball to centerfield to end the scoring threat. Rotary added to their lead in the top of the second as Powell and Dylan Todd walked and scored on back-to-back hits from Scott and Brown to push their lead to 5-1. The Chamber then pounced all over the Dodgers in the bottom half of the second frame. The Pirates sent 14 batters to the plate in the inning as five walks prolonged the inning for the Dodgers. Adam and Shane Hinson had the only two hits of the inning and when the dust settled on the second inning, the Pirates had scored nine times and led 10-5. The Dodgers were not fazed at all by the Pirates as they kept their cool and battled right back.

I. Cunningham and Tavious Bell walked and scored on a hit from Powell. Q. Cunningham walked with one out and both would score on passed balls to make it a 10-9 game with the Pirates still in the lead. Q. Cunningham pitched in the third and fourth for the Dodgers.

Cunningham gave up a one-out triple to Watson and he scored on a wild pitch to put the Pirates up 11-9. The Dodgers tied the game in the fourth as Brown led off with a triple and scored. Marquise Shutes doubled and scored and just like that it was a whole new ballgame.

The Pirates would however get one more at bat. S. Hinson walked to start the bottom of the fourth and after a couple of strikeouts, stood at third base as the winning run. Another wild pitch easily allowed Hinson to score to win the game in exciting form, 12-11. Boykin pitched the fourth inning

Chase to legislators: Stay out of TWRA’s business BY BETTY BEAN THE SHOPPER NEWS, KNOXVILLE Mike Chase is a tough guy who has had a spectacularly successful career in the restaurant industry. He’s been a fixture in Tennessee business and politics for two decades and his 17restaurant Copper Cellar Corp. stretches from Gatlinburg to Nashville. He is a Democrat whose support is courted by both major parties and friends occasionally kid him about a passing resemblance to Tony Soprano. Those who know him best, however, say he’s happiest when he’s fishing. That’s probably why he lights up when he talks about his six years on the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Commission, which oversees the operations of the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency. Chase was appointed by former Gov. Phil Bredesen and served as chair in 2010 and until his term was up earlier this year. He is an enthusiastic booster of the agency’s mission. “I don’t think most people know that the agency doesn’t get any money from the state. It is totally selffunded through hunting and fishing license sales. One of the things I would like to see is a portion of the

sales of all boating, fishing and hunting licenses go to fund the agency,” Chase said. “The sale of hunting licenses has been on the decline for years. “I don’t think the average person realizes what a wildlife officer has to deal with on a daily basis,” he said, mentioning a wildlife officer who worked a 20hour shift dealing with a woman who had two fingers ripped off in a water skiing accident and a bear that was sighted and trapped in South Knoxville. “And I wonder if the average person realizes that the management job the agency does has made hunting what it is today in the state of Tennessee. Twenty years ago, we probably had wild turkeys in six or eight counties. Now, they’re all over the place. Something like 36-38,000 of them are harvested every year. The same thing can be said for deer, and the same has taken place in our lakes and reservoirs and rivers for fishing. Look at the trout below Norris Dam or in the Caney Fork River. Somebody has to raise and stock these trout. If you’re a hunter or a fisherman, you’ve sure got to give credit to somebody.” Chase is modest about his role in shaping policy, but says he’s proud of prodding

the agency to spend money on hatcheries.“Since I have such an interest in fishing, I wanted to get our hatcheries to where we could start meeting the needs of fishermen out there as far as producing fish. Most of our lakes are past their prime as far as fishing goes, and it’s necessary to restock them. Under Gov. Bredesen, there was a strong emphasis on state parks and tourism, and this is part of it. Our lakes need to be attractive to outof-staters who come to fish. It’s an important part of our economy and economic development for the future. I felt it was very important.” Chase said politics never played a part in the board’s decisions but sometimes were imposed from the outside. He is, for example, adamantly opposed to Rep. Frank Niceley’s deer farming bill, which was defeated this session. “In listening to the people I knew whom I have to respect, it would have been a very bad thing for wildlife in the state of Tennessee. Sometimes I think some of the legislators resent the independence of the commission – but that’s the reason the commission was set up – to keep it separate from the political in Nashville. “The agency has to be constantly monitoring

what’s going on and try not to let these private acts pass. There would be different rules in every county. There would be no statewide enforcement, especially for the last two years because

there’s been such a change in Nashville. Even a few bills, which have been withdrawn, to allow the Legislature to appoint commissioners and even put legislators on the commission, I personally

think would be the death of the commission. The existing format has been working with great success and they need to leave it alone. Leave the commission alone. Leave the agency alone.”
