I challenge you not to rest on your laurels but to exceed them,” said Principal Wiggans.” The only way to achieve your purpose is to take small actions each day. Only by setting different goals and achieving them can we find self-worth.” “You are truly the best of
the best,” added Principal Wiggans. In closing Principal Wiggans quoted Mother Teresa, “Life is a promise - fulfill it.” The new members then stood, with the current members, recited the NHS pledge, and then were asked to sign the Paris R-II NHS Book of Members and received their official NHS pin. After the ceremony refreshments were served. The Paris R-II National Honor Society sponsor is Barb Mason.

JUST A THOUGHT

From the desk of the Editor
BY DAVID EALES EDITOR
BY LISA TALTON CONTRIBUTING WRITER
Spring? Did someone say ring? For many of us in the local area this is definitely not spring. Through various social media there are posts calling Punxsutawney Phil a liar and some even worse. Taking matters to the courts a municipality in a northern state has gone as far as to actually accuse the varmint, in a court filing, of filing a false prediction. The snow, albeit a pretty sight as it lays on trees, grass and other areas has caused some problems also. It has played havoc with the school spring sports schedules as teams including golf, baseball and track cannot play in the slushy mess and mud. If you remember back 365 days we actually had to be mowing the grass at this time of the year. What a difference a year makes. This up and down weather also can put a damper in a well thought out budget such as the county or city budget. As usual all my appreciation goes out to the state, city and county crews who work long, long hours to make sure I can get out of my driveway and are able to get to work. I tout these dedicated individuals time and time again coupled with my ad-
(Family Series will continue next week after Easter) This is always a special time of the year for me my birthday, the beginning of spring and Easter all wrapped up in one!. Now they don’t fall all on the same day but they are all really close to one another. Even though this spring does not look like our typical spring and instead of seeing luscious, green grass and flowers blooming, we have seen a white coat of snow covering the ground, it is still a special time nonetheless. And even though we have not seen the new life sprouting around us as of yet in the physical, we can enjoy the new life that Jesus brings in the spiritual. He came that we might have life - a more abundant life!!! I try to take time to really think about what He did for me. To think about all He went through because He loves me that much! He loves you that much! All the physical pain He endured
DAVID EALES miration of the emergency responders who also have to make sure they get to work so they can keep us safe and protected. In small towns such as ours each and every individual plays a part in the total aspect of the ebb and flow of our daily lives. Whether it is Mindy Flick and the staff of the Paris Post Office delivering our mail, or Jason Dodge and his staff at the Paris Pharmacy, or Roger Herron and his staff at Hickman’s IGA, or Tara Sheffield and the Paris Senior Citizen’s Center staff, or even local Superintendents and their staffs of educators at the local cchools each plays a part in your life, the life of your children, grandchildren or friends. We are definitely a symbiotic society helping each other make it from day to day. Who are your helping today? Have a great week!
The Other Spring As we slowly experience the normal sounds and smells of Spring, there are reminders of another Spring, another growing and coming alive. This is the natural and very uneven but noticeable blossoming of our little boys and girls. It is most apparent and obvious in the girls, especially this time of year. Each April, for a number of years, we have an April in Paris event where judges choose Miss Paris from the older contestants and a Junior Miss Paris from their younger counterparts. It is an opportunity to demonstrate poise and confidence in some very young girls. It is also a test of wills and courage for most of the girls that enter these events. For parents and grandparents it can be a bittersweet moment, of pride in the performance and sadness in the knowledge that our little girls grow up so soon and so fast. Then there are the graduations, all of them, from fifth grade to junior high, from eighth grade to high school, and from high school to everywhere else. Suddenly the little girl athlete, jumping up and down in front of a mirror, hoping for something to develop, is shopping for a strapless with mom or sis. And by the time they get to high school, the shopping gets a professional look and what we dads and grandpas may think is outdated, and very old fashioned except for
those dates on our credit card and the pictures of our past presidents. And just when we are prepared for the future shock of an impending graduation, one of our lovelies is going to the prom. We knew about the senior prom, but didn’t know some older boy would ask our little precious to go with him. And, of course, there is no way of talking her out of that invitation, so a two handed approach is called for here, one hand into your pocket for your wallet and the other alternating over your eyes and your mouth. And then there are the boys buzzing around the girls like mosquitoes and horse flies this Spring, their hormonal little wings making annoying sounds and signs everywhere. And the boys that come to the house pretending to be so nice cannot really hide the smell of sulphur with that expensive cologne or their evil intentions with pretensions of innocence. You see, young lady, I was once that boy’s age and---well have a good time, and be home early. Spring will always turn to summer, and to June, when many of our girls will marry, and we take that long walk that changes everything. And we have survived once again that other Spring of growth, of promise and of coming alive. RJF Editor’s Note – This is an archived copy of My Turn by Richard Fredrick.
LISA TALTON for us - the constant whippings, the crown of thorns piercing his head, the nails driven in His hands and feet. I think about all the mocking and scoffing and laughing the people did. I wondered what it must have been like to have people you only showed love to saying mean and hateful words about you and to you. But despite all these things Jesus just kept going until God’s will was done. He didn’t complain. He didn’t back out. He did it because He loves us that much! There is no greater love than this, when a man lays down His life for His friends. What a magnifi-

90 Years Ago March 30, 1923 New School For Holliday: Citizens of the Holliday School District at the election April 3 will vote a $24,000 school building on. The growth of the town and school has made it necessary to have a new building. A poll of the voters within the corporate limits of Holliday shows that 123 favor the issue of bonds while 51 are opposed. The vote in the district outside of Holliday is problematical but the town’s boosters believe that the proposition will easily obtain the two –thirds majority vote needed. Girl in Radio Concert: Miss Elizabeth Alexander, of Paris, was a member of the Stephens College Glee Club, which gave a radio concert from the state capitol building in Jefferson City on Tuesday night. Each number
was heard by stations in all parts of the Union. Monroe County people who were listening in felt like applauding when the announcer introduced “Miss Elizabeth Alexander, of Paris.” Railroad Settles with Shippers: The M.K. & T. has made a settlement with the six livestock shippers and the Paris Shipping Association for failure to run a train according to schedule, thereby causing a loss to the shippers. The railroad agreed to pay each shippers for the 50c droop on the market for the 2 per cent shrinkage. The shippers agreed to drop their claims for labor in driving the hogs to the station and for feed. 75 Years Ago March 31, 1938 230 Acres Added to our State Park: The Arch Bouseman tract, 100 acres just west of the
Editor’s Note: This letter was inadvertency misprinted in last week’s issue. We apologize for our mistake and below is the letter in its entirety. Dear Editor, David this letter is in regards to The Paris National Bank and their annual Customer Appreciation Dinner that they host yearly. Hats off to the employees, officers and directors, they out do themselves every year with dinner, entertainment and gifts. The food is always delicious and the entertainment is tops. Last year “Elvis” was there and I thought that was the best and then this year the entertainment by “Swing St. Louis” was outstanding, I can’t wait until next year to see how they will top these acts. Hometown banking is great; when you walk into their establishment they make you feel like family and I am happy to note that years ago I was a part of that family. Just wanted Monroe County people to know that next year when they read that the bank is hosting dinner and entertainment they need to flag that date on their calendar, they don’t know what they are missing. Sincerely, Sandra Francis

person who doesn’t drink or do drugs? A person who doesn’t talk back and goes to church every Sunday? Or a person who is active in their community? Yes, all these things may be pleasing to God but they do not define us. We are simply a son or daughter of God. We can either accept that or we can reject it. It is our decision. He wants to be part of our lives. He wants us to accept His unconditional love. He wants us to have an abundant life! And there is nothing, absolutely nothing that can separate us from His love. And His love was and is so great that He sent His son Jesus to die on the cross for us. This Easter Sunday let’s make a decision to go to church not just because it’s Easter but because we want to let Him know how much we appreciate His deep, great, sincere, all encompassing and unconditional love that He has for each and every one of us. He only wants us to come to Him and receive it-It is just that simple. Have a very blessed and happy Easter!!!!

cent, gigantic, enormous and great love He has for us! To give His life so that we may have life. And the even more wonderful thing is that when Jesus died on that cross for our sins, it was for ALL our sins. Not just some of our sins but all of them. And you know what else is pretty awesome? He did not just die for some of us. He died for every single one of us because He died for God’s children and we are all His children. It does not matter how old or how young, how rich or how poor, how good or how bad we might think we are–He did it for us. Sometimes I think we make it more difficult than it has to be. We only need to believe that Jesus died on the cross for our sins and then invite Him into our lives. We come to Him just as we are and then allow Him to make the changes in us. He loves us regardless of what we have done or will do. It is not about being a ‘good person’ because what makes someone a ‘good person’? A person who does not steal or get in trouble with the law? A

Master Gardener Cecelia Obert presents gardening program at library SUBMITTED PHOTO
More than 20 people enjoyed the outstanding program sponsored by the Centralia Flower & Garden Club, member FGCM Central District and NGC, Inc., at the Centralia Library on March 19. The title was Come Watch Me Grow, a program to show people how to start plants from seed at home with little cost. Cecelia Obert, Master Gardener, President of Salt River Master Gardeners in Hannibal, Associate Degree from John Woods College in Horticulture
and Landscape Design, took the audience step by step through the materials needed, how to actually plant the seeds, secrets she has discovered to make the process more successful, where to get the materials, hints about the soil used, water conditions, how to prepare some special seeds, temperature controls, lighting, etc. She also answered numerous questions. Cecelia shared her total love of gardening with everyone present, and her enthusiasm was quite
contagious. At the end of the program, everyone received handouts about planting, as well as packets of seed from Cecelia’s own gardens, and some packets from the Centralia Club. Many of the attendees stayed afterward to visit and ask more questions. The next program will be May 22, at the library, at 10 a.m. What’s All The Buzzzzz? will be presented by Bruce Haney of Centralia, owner of Green Acres Honey Farm.
The Madison Area Community Betterment Association has opened an account to accept donations toward the purchase of a generator at the Madison Area Community Center. With a generator to provide electricity during a power outage it would give area residents a place to go in the event of a long- term power outage in the area. Cost of a genera-
tor with the capacity to provide electricity for a building of this size is estimated to be $25,000 to $30,000 or more. Some grant funds may be available; however the grant will only cover a small percentage of the total cost and the match money must be available before applying for the grant. If you are interested in helping with this project you may give your do-
nation to Carol Larson, secretary of MACB; or Twana Hulen, treasurer of MACB.

Madison Construction Proposal: Madison School District voters will be asked to decide whether or not to construct a new $665,000 addition to their present school. This decision will be made at the regular April 5 election.
u Continued from page 1A
Two hundred sixty students, kindergarten through twelfth grade, attend the Madison schools, and according to school officials, that number should remain constant for quite sometime. The election will be not only for the building addition but also for improvements on the older structures, levy proposals, and the School Board members. All of the above will directly affect and benefit all of the students.

Paris R-II National Honor Society inducts 16 new chapter members
NHS is more than just academic recognition. The NHS chapter establishes guidelines for selection that are based upon a candidate’s outstanding performance in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership and character. Scholarship: “Students who have a cumulative grade point average of 85%, B, 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) or equivalent standard of excellence, or a higher cumulative average set by the local school’s faculty council, meet the scholarship requirement for membership. These students are then eligible for consideration on the basis of service, leadership and character.” (NHS Constitution, Article IX, Section 2) Service: This quality is defined as the voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community, without direct financial or material compensation to the individual performing the service. Chapters may establish criteria that stipulate specific quantities of projects or service hours for candidates, as well as expectations of service obligations once a student is
selected as a member. Leadership: Student leaders are often viewed as those students who are resourceful, good problem solvers, involved in and promoters of school activities, idea contributors, dependable, and who are both organized and organizers. Experiences to be considered under the leadership criterion can include activities that originate in the school or community or both, as determined by the local chapter. Character: The student of good character can be said to be one who upholds principles of morality and ethics; is cooperative and responsible; demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability; shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others; and is a good citizen. Local chapters consider the values and traditions of both the local school and community when defining the character criterion. New Paris NHS members include: Chrisee Wheeler, Eva Charlick, Alex Dreckshage, Halie Jordan, John DeOrnellis, Austin Miller, Jake Peak, Audrey Vitt, Quin Bartels,
Rachel Batsell, Lindsay Link, Brett Mason, Brant Francis, Teddy Ebbesmeyer, Katie Otto and Kyle Popkes.

What is a Mutual Fund
By Nancy Baca, State Farm® Agent
Investments may take many forms. Some people buy and sell stocks and bonds while others purchase real estate. Another common investment tool is a mutual fund. Mutual Funds By investing in a mutual fund, you’re essentially pooling your money with other investors to access a broader range of stocks or bonds than most people could own by themselves. According to the Investment Company Institute, there were 8,684 mutual fund companies in the United States controlling close to $11.6 trillion in assets as of the end of 20111. The investment company uses the assets in the fund to buy and sell securities such as stocks or bonds in pursuit of a specific objective as outlined by the company charter. The fund objectives and other important information are found in the prospectus. Mutual Fund Objectives One objective a mutual fund may attempt to achieve is long-term growth of capital. This may be done by purchasing the stock of large companies that have consistently made a profit, or buying the inexpensive stock of smaller companies in hopes that the value increases. Some funds may be invested primarily in foreign companies while others invest in specific market sectors such as technology or health care. Some funds are developed to generate income for the investors. Dividends from bonds or preferred stocks held by these funds are accumulated and distributed to investors on a regular basis. If the fund’s assets are invested in municipal bonds, the dividends may be exempt from federal taxes, which would provide the investor with income taxed solely at the state or local level. How A Fund Is Managed Many funds are actively managed, meaning an experienced investment advisor will take an active role in determining the portfolio, or holdings, of the fund. The securities held in a fund may change based on how well a security performs and meets the objective of the fund. Other funds are called index funds and attempt to mirror the performance of a given index, such as the S&P 500® or the Russell 2000® Indexes. The fund portfolio will generally contain stocks of as many companies in the index as is possible in amounts reflecting the weighting assigned by the index. To obtain detailed information on a fund, read the prospectus. It explains everything from the fund’s investment objective to the fee structure. Reading it is an important step to understanding the mutual funds that you may be considering. 12012 ICI Fact Book . Data for funds that invest primarily in other mutual funds were excluded from the series. Investing involves risk, including potential for loss. Diversification and asset allocation do not assure a profit or protect against loss. Foreign investments involve greater risks than U.S. investments, including political and economic risks and the risk of currency fluctuations. Bonds are subject to interest rate risk and may decline in value due to an increase in interest rates. The stocks of small companies are more volatile than the stocks of larger, more established companies. It is not possible to invest directly in an index. The S&P 500® Index tracks the common stock performance of 500 large U.S. companies. The Russell 2000 Index tracks the common stock performance of the 2,000 smallest U.S. companies in the Russell 3000 Index The Russell 2500 Index tracks the 2,500 smallest companies in the Russell 3000 Index.

positive outcomes that can seem qualitatively and measured quantitatively. Older adults who participate in senior centers find tools, information and options that support them in their own self-care, prolonging independence and delaying institutionalization. Participation in senior center programs empowers older adults to lower their risk of disease and disability, maintain higher levels of mental and physical functioning and engage actively in their communities. Healthy, active seniors make enormous contributions within their communities. Healthy, active seniors reduce the overall federal budget by lessening the demand for Medicare and Medicaid expenditures. Let’s face it, our seniors are the very people who founded our communities and country. They deserve to live
independently as long as they can. “With the proposed budget cuts ahead of us, our senior centers are in the line of fire for cuts in our funding,” said Director Sheffield. “Our senior center in particular already struggles enough to keep our doors open. So we need support from our community and leaders to help us so no senior goes hungry.”

Steps you can take to ensure a safe and healthy home for you and your family
Monroe County Health Department
National Public Health Week - April 1-7 According to Director Paula Delaney and the staff of the Monroe County Health Department, Public health is in every corner of our homes. It’s in the safe food in the fridge, the carbon monoxide and smoke detectors affixed to the ceiling, and the child-proof latches that keep dangerous chemicals out of little hands. Home is also where we learn healthy behaviors, such as eating right and exercising. Good prevention starts at home. Did You Know? The majority of firerelated deaths happen at home. In 2010 in the United States, someone died in a fire every 169 minutes and someone was injured every 30 minutes. About two-thirds of home fire deaths happened in homes without working smoke alarms. Falls are the leading cause of injury-related deaths among people ages 65 and older. Each year, one out of every three adults ages 65 and older experiences a fall. In 2010, falls resulted in $30 billion in direct medical costs. Nine out of every 10
childhood poison exposures happens at home, with medications being among the top culprits. More than half of all swimming pools drowning among children could have been prevented with appropriate fencing that completely separates the pool from the house and yard. Many more efforts are needed to help all families and households adequately prepare for natural disasters and other emergencies, such as having a three-day supply of water and a written evacuation plan. Fewer than 15 percent of adults and 10 percent of adolescents eat the recommended amounts of fruits and vegetables each day. What Public Health Teaches Us Start small... Smoke alarms can double your chance of surviving a fire, so install alarms on every floor of your home and test that they’re working monthly. While you’re at it, install a carbon monoxide alarm on every floor of your home as well. Help prevent fires — as well as serious health
problems and chronic diseases — by making your home tobacco- and smoke-free. Keep potentially dangerous household products, such as cleaning products, cosmetics and prescription medications, locked up and out of children’s reach. Also, never store household chemicals in old food containers or in the same place you keep food items. Gather your household for a night of emergency preparedness: Make plans for putting together an emergency stockpile kit, create a crisis communication plan, designate an emergency meeting place and hold household emergency drills. Put this number on your fridge and in your cell phone: 1-800-2221222. It will automatically connect you to your regional poison control center and often life-saving information. Put up four-sided fencing that’s at least five feet high with selflatching gates around swimming pools to protect children from injury Assess your home, or the home of a loved one, for factors that could contribute to a fall, such as poor lighting, uneven flooring and clutter. Stock your kitchen with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables and cut down on high-sugar and high-fat items. Learn about proper food handling and cook-
E Y E
ing techniques to avoid food-borne illness. Learn how to properly dispose of unused medications. Tell your friends and online followers how you and your household are celebrating National Public Health Week. Keep a journal of the changes you’ve made on your blog or other social media accounts or send a letter to the editor to your local newspaper. Let others know how easy — and fun — it can be to make public health and prevention a part of our lives. Think big... Help organize a yoga or Tai Chi class for older adults to help improve balance and prevent falls. Organize a community fire safety event with the local fire department. Get involved in community efforts addressing the growing epidemic of prescription drug abuse, such as promoting drug take-back events. Spread the word about emergency preparedness at your children’s school, your parents’ retirement community and the other places you spend time. Volunteer to help these places assess their readiness and start planning. Promote awareness of how local public health systems keep communities healthy at home, such as keeping our food and water safe. Encourage residents and leaders to take a moment to imagine how dramatically our lives would change if that system disappeared. Let your key decision-makers know that you support public health and prevention. There is much more you can do to ensure a safe and healthy home for you and your family. FREE brochures on emergency preparedness and healthy eating may be picked up at the health department.

Congress does not allow five day mail delivery Congress foiled the financially beleaguered U.S. Postal Service’s plan to end Saturday delivery of first-class mail when it passed legislation recently requiring six-day delivery. It was added to the legislation to keep the government funded through the summer. The Postal Service, which lost $16 billion last year, said last month it wanted to switch to fiveday mail service to save $2 billion annually. Congress traditionally has included a provision
in legislation to fund the federal government each year that has prevented the Postal Service from reducing delivery service. The Postal Service had asked Congress not to include the provision this time around. Despite the request, the House of Representatives on Thursday, March 21 gave final approval to legislation that maintains the provision, sending it to President Barack Obama to sign into law. The Senate approved the measure on Wednesday, March 20.

Harvey William Turner 1922-2013
Harvey William Turner, 90, of Thompson, passed away at the Monroe Manor Nursing Home in Paris, on Sunday, March 24. Mr. Turner was born on July 10, 1922, in Monroe County, the son of William Frank and Docia Ensor Turner. He married Mary “Louise” McDowell of Silex, on June 20, 1948, in Mexico.

PHS Alum leads Arkansas high school team to 4-A state basketball championship by Denny Hollingsworth
Pottsville, Ark. – Despite Pottsville High School students donning “Shane For President” tee shirts, veteran coach Shane Thurman, a former history teacher, is quick to repeat the often quoted Sherman(esque) statement of, “If nominated I won’t accept, if elected I won’t serve.” Pottsville students aren’t the only fans proud of their basketball coach, a 1990 Paris High School graduate, and his 18-man squad. The whole North Central Arkansas town of 2,800 and surrounding school district are still celebrating their Apaches’ first state title after Thurman’s squad won a nail-biting game March 7th versus a much larger Pine Bluff team. The Apaches won eight straight post-season games over three weeks and beat Dollarway 54-50 at Barton Coliseum, in Little Rock, for the state’s 4-A Boy’s Championship. To get to the Arkansas Final 4, Pottsville beat Monticello March 1st, by two points, in double overtime, ending at 11 p.m. They turned around and 18-hours later the Apaches downed Pocahontas by 19-points, which propelled them to the title game. The championship had an attendance of 4,000 and among the spectators were Shane’s parents, Gary and Sharon Thurman, of Paris, brother Lance, of Rolla, and the coach’s wife, Taba, and their two children, Gabby,12, a sixth grader, and Trey, 10, a fourth grader. Thurman says the scene couldn’t have been more perfect. “Having my folks, brother, wife and kids all there, and the kids old enough to understand and appreciate what’s going on, it couldn’t have been better. It’s a special memory we’ll all hold on to.” Shane, 41, was born Carthage, Ill., in 1972, and moved to Paris in 1977. He played basketball, football and ran track for the Coyotes and was recognized with all-conference and all-district honors on the PHS basketball and football teams, playing forward on the hardwood and both tight end and defensive end in football. Shane was in the 7th grade when the Coyotes made the MSHSAA Final Four, in 1985, and got to see many games. He remembers thinking some-
day he’d like to win a state championship game. That never happened to him as a player, but he has fulfilled the dreams of 18 Pottsville, Ark. players and several thousand Apache fans. Thurman matriculated to Westminster College, in Fulton, and played basketball for the Blue Jays. It was there he met and married Taba Stephenson, originally of Lamar Ark., and a player for the Blue Jays women’s basketball team. During his sophomore year in college he served as an assistant at basketball camp for the Missouri School for the Deaf and decided he found his life’s calling. “I fell in love with coaching that summer and decided that I wanted to make it my profession,” he says today. He graduated from Westminster in 1994 with a degree in history and received a teacher’s certification. Shane’s spent 19 years as a coach and teacher in six different Missouri and Arkansas school districts. His first job out of college was at South Callaway High School, Mokane, MO. He spent three years (19941997) as a social studies teacher, junior high basketball coach and assistant varsity basketball coach. In 1997, the Thurmans moved to Taba’s home town and Shane got his first varsity basketball head coaching position. In his four years there (1997-2001) he ended up with a 48-63 record. Looking back on his tenure, Shane reflects he learned how to coach at Lamar. “We got better every year I was there. But I was a new coach; I had a lot to learn,” he states. The 2001-02 school year found the Thurmans back in Missouri, coaching at Hallsville. The Indians recorded an 18-8 mark that Shane still relishes. “I wanted to return to Missouri and will always be grateful Hallsville gave me the chance,” he says. “We had a great bunch of kids and I consider it a successful year, academically and athletically. We played Paris twice that year and it was fun facing my old team.” It was back to Arkansas in 2002 and Clinton High School was the the next stop for Shane. In his three years at Clinton (2002-2005) his teams won two district championships and recorded back-to-back 21-game winning seasons.
After a combined 57-32 record he thought he might finish his career at Clinton, but decided he wanted to finish a master’s degree in a secondary school administration program he’d started four years before. In order to do that he moved closer to Arkansas Tech University, taking a job at Dardanelle, AR. Until his state championship, Thurman’s six years (2005-2011) at Dardanelle High School were the most successful of his career. Shane teams won 30 games four years in a row and climbed to the Arkansas Final 4 three times. He compiled a 143-38 record during his tenure. The entire time he coached at Dardanelle, Taba was the middle school counselor at Pottsville, 15 miles away. And Pottsville was the only place where their kids had attended school. “I thought we needed jobs at the same place,” Shane says, and when the Pottsville head coaching position opened he was the first candidate the school’s administrators contacted. Over a telephone call, the Pottsville superintendent offered him the varsity basketball coach’s job and an assistant junior high principal position. He told Thurman if he’d accept the offer they wouldn’t interview anybody else. Shane said he did and they didn’t. Shane went 22-6 his first season heading the Apaches and knew going into 2012-13 he had a special group of kids on his team. “We finished 27-6 this season and kept improving throughout the year,” Coach Thurman said. “We never lost more than one game in a row, won our last three regular season games and got hot in post-season play.” “We lost five times during the season by two points or less and each time I thought, ‘Now, we needed to learn a lesson there,’ and I think we did each time. Four of those losses came in tournament championship games by one or two points, and each time we had the last shot for the win and missed.” The close games the Apaches played this year boded well for them when it came to playing the hotly contested state championship fight. The title game, in which the lead went back-andforth, and was only decid-

ed when Thurman’s junior point guard Michael Perry stole the ball with 12 seconds left on the clock, and hit two free throws, was a classic to watch. “A lot of people tell me it was great to watch as a fan, but it was a great game to coach, too” Thurman says. “We had to play almost a perfect game.” The Dollarway players towered over Thurman’s Apaches. “The Dollarway squad was huge. Their front line measured 6’6,” 6’4,” 6’3” in height,” he said. “All their starters were bigger than us and they brought two guys off the bench that were both taller than our starters. We play eight kids in our rotation and the tallest kid in our starting lineup was only 6’2”, Thurman said. Shane’s an honest coach and freely admits that if Pottsville had to play Dollarway 10 times the Pine Bluff team would win a majority of the games. “We out rebounded them 34-to-29 and shot a higher field goal and free throw percentage. That’s not going to happen very often.” “They blocked 10 of our shots. Knocked those balls into the stands and didn’t intimidate our kids at all.” Pottsville led at the end of the 1st quarter 18-13, playing what Thurman thought the best his kids could play, but Apache turnovers allowed Dollarway to take a four point lead at half-time, 32-28. Thurman’s team lead by two at the end of the third period and out scored Dollarway by a bucket in the final eight minutes. Shane says the victory celebration lasted several hours. “We didn’t get to bed until 3 a.m. the next day. We’re still pretty high more than a week later.” Now that he’s recorded 315 wins versus only 153 losses in sixteen varsity seasons, been to the Final 4 four times and won a state championship, is Shane Thurman ready to leave coaching and concentrate on administration? “I was glad to get a master’s, I’m proud of it and maybe some day I’ll think about administration and only administration, but I like coaching, it’s what I do, what I enjoy doing and hopefully I’ll get the opportunity to continue for a long time.”
