One killed, one injured in Sunday wreck By Calvin Carter Staff Writer A one vehicle wreck last weekend left one person dead and another in the hospital, after the driver lost control of his car while traveling in Haywood County. At approximately 5:06 p.m. Sunday, March 6, two men were traveling westbound on Highway 70 in what authorities from the Tennessee Highway Patrol described as a Mazda four-door. Authorities said that driver, James Harris 56, was traveling at a high speed on Highway 70 when he lost control of the vehicle at Bond Ferry road. Harris was trying to negotiate a turn at a curve when he lost control and hit a tree. Harris was killed, while passenger James Grubb, 47, was injured and airlifted to Regional Medical Center in Memphis. Authorities couldn’t comment on the condition of Grubb. Both men are from the Memphis area, authorities said.

Missing victim found by authorities Authorities were on the lookout for Brownsville resident Bradley Jones, following a missing persons call to the Haywood County Sheriff’s Department Saturday March 5, after family failed to locate him. However, Jones was found stuck in the muddy river next to Highway 70 close to the Stanton area. It was a chance encounter that actually could have resulted from a potential tragedy. Authorities were in pursuit of a reckless driver traveling westbound on Highway 70. The driver almost hit Stanton Volunteer Fire Fighter Kim Tinsley Howard who was traveling eastbound on Highway 70. Howard turned her vehicle around and followed the driver and pursuing sheriff’s deputy. Shortly, all three vehicles stopped, and while the authorities arrested the driver, Howard heard someone yelling. She informed authorities, who believed that it may have been the missing person they were looking for. It turned out that the yelling was indeed

coming from Jones, who was stuck in the muddy river next to Highway 70 on May-Hill Road. Howard kept communicating with Jones until authorities

arrived. It took nearly an hour and a half before authorities arrived on the scene to rescue Jones. The stranded man was stuck behind various

trees and mud, which prevented boats from easily rescuing him. Although his body temperature dropped a bit, Jones was rescued successfully.

By Calvin Carter Staff Writer The scene at Brownsville Baptist Church, located on Main Street and Wilson Avenue was an interesting one. Driving past the church, it would have been hard to ignore the crowded rows of parked cars and long line of people waiting outside. Inside was another interesting scene, with people pushing shopping carts along a path that had others throwing or

placing a variety of food inside. It was like some sort of supermarket assembly line or maybe a game show. “Round 74! Go, go, go!” yelled one slim blondehaired lady with small glasses as more shopping carts either rushed inside or outside. This wasn’t necessarily a game, though the jovial attitudes and welcoming smiles would have easily suggested otherwise. This was a way of help to a county that’s been hurting from a

floundering economy. Ever since October of 2009, Brownsville Baptist Church has used every other month to provide a food bank to less than fortunate families. The idea was actually presented to the church thanks to the Mid-South Food Bank, an independent, nondenominational Tennessee corporation founded in 1981. The bank is also a member of Feeding America (formally known as America’s Second

State Trooper Makes Drug Bust in Haywood County Nashville --- Trooper Jeff Fuller of the Tennessee Highway Patrol discovered cocaine during a traffic stop in Haywood County on Tuesday, March 1, landing two individuals in jail. At approximately 3:51 p.m., the THP Memphis District Interdiction Plus Team Leader stopped a black 2008 Dodge Avenger with New York tags for a window tint violation on Interstate 40 eastbound near the 45 mile marker. After becoming suspicious, Trooper Fuller requested assistance from West Tennessee Drug Task Force Agent Dustin James. Officers were granted consent to search the vehicle, and Agent James deployed his K-9, receiving positive alerts on the trunk and the driver door. Further investigation revealed 6.3 ounces of powder cocaine wrapped in black electrical tape inside the passenger’s purse. Driver Justino Sanchez, Jr., 30, of Brockport, N.Y., and passenger Krystal Ann Cardenas, 22, of Splendora, Texas, were arrested and taken to Haywood County Jail in Brownsville. They both have been charged with possession of schedule II substance with intent to deliver. Sanchez was also charged with driving on a suspended license and violation of the window tint law. The vehicle was seized in accordance with state law.

A state trooper found 6.3 ounces of powder cocaine wrapped in black electrical tape inside a purse of one of the suspects. Harvest), the national network of food banks. “They actually called us to do it,” said Martha Ann Williams, who is in charge of the church’s pantry. “We’ve been buying various cases of food from them before and they asked us if we would be interested in doing it. They said the need in Haywood County is so great.” Given some of the grim statistics to Haywood County, that’s probably true. Currently, according

to state reports, the unemployment in Haywood County is at 14 percent. The number of jobs has decreased in the county by 26 percent since July 2009. “You know ever since MTD closed down a few years ago, it’s been hard for many to find another job,” Williams noted. “Some are still out there looking.” Yet the church remains more than happy to help do their part to bandage the unemployment See Feeds Page A2

While those who have registered for the bank patiently wait in the gymnasium, volunteers quickly gather the groceries, with the hustle and noise rivaling that of Wal-Mart on the eve of a possible snow day. Volunteers even push the shopping carts and unload the groceries in the cars. It’s a service you’d be hard pressed to find anywhere else these days. As far as volunteers are concerned, the church will take anybody that’s willing to help. For example, volunteers for this month came in the form of teens participating in the church’s youth revival

event, the Haywood County National Guard unit, and supervised prisoners from the Haywood County Jail. The program has grown since its October 2009 origin. It started with 90 but exploded to 250 earlier this year. In fact, Williams noted that Tuesday’s number for this month might have even reached 300 and broken the record again. Whatever the number, the grateful smiles, hugs and handshakes that families give to the volunteers is proof

everyone is grateful. “I have never seen a church as generous as Brownsville Baptist Church,” resident Angela Porter said while waiting in line. “I’ve been here a year and they’ve been so generous to my family and I. They’ve just helped us so much.” If you’re interested in the food bank, the next registration date will be May 3 at 9 a.m. You can call 772-9753 for more information. If you would like to volunteer, contact Williams at 7729227.

To Go Forward, Look Back They always say that to make sure history doesn’t repeat itself, one must be willing to learn about it or look back. There’s little argument on the validity of that statement, yet I wonder is looking back also a way to jumpstart one forward? In a short word: yes. Last weekend, a bus full of college students from Arkansas found themselves in Brownsville, as part of a southern tour centered on past social activists. Getting a brief chance to learn about the purpose of their trip, as well as a friendly conversation or two got the gears turning in my head, as I began to wonder about the true individual benefits of “looking back.” Not too many students would use their own Spring Break to partake in such a trip. Most have their minds set on sunnier skies and sandy beaches, often littered with alcohol fueled bad decisions that’ll make their parents blush. But learning of past social activists? Forget about it. To witness such a feat is refreshing. It also served as a great prelude to a thought I’ve been tumbling with since Saturday. During a great one sided discussion on the need of residents to further embrace and learn about African American history in Haywood County, - my role was merely of a listener who responded with more questions – a gentlemen stated that perhaps the reason why much of the black youth seems so lost

today is because they don’t know where they truly come from. They don’t know their history. And they certainly do not know there are tons of amazing stories and accomplishments that have slipped through the cracks and gone under the radar. It’s a statement that has resonated with me since that day, perhaps because it’s something I’ve thought about frequently for years now. What I really fear about the coming generation of African American youth is that they don’t realize our culture. Our history, is so deep and varied that an actual month just simply doesn’t do it justice. I want them to know that what you’re taught about when it comes to African Americans completely extends far beyond the limited pages of a textbook or even a museum. And last but certainly not least, the historic points of items like slavery, racial injustice, and the Civil Rights Movement, while very important to know, are but mere flowers in a huge field of knowledge. Maybe I fear this because as for myself, my realization of it didn’t hit me until I was barely out of my teens. And even then, it would still take a while before I would begin to properly follow up and make attempts to educate myself. Thoughts creep into my head from time to time, slightly different from one another, yet bonded by the same question of “how different would

things be if I had learned more about this as a youth?” How would it have shaped me? Yet I guess my thoughts should actually focus on how I’m being shaped now. You’re never too old to learn as they say, and that’s very true. Besides, the convenience of acquiring information is only a fairly recent phenomenon. One couldn’t just simply Google in “the first African American mayor” or “the influence of African Americans on the origins of rock music.” And yes, they are still these glorious items called books in these mythical places of information called libraries; sometimes an item of information you’re seeking simply isn’t there. Sometimes, it’s not even in this country. That would be a great argument to use if it wasn’t beaten so badly by the internet of today. And beyond the net and libraries, you’ve still got the greatest resource that is only a breath away: people. After all, pen and paper were not the first ways to record and document human activity. The oral exchanges between people provided records and accounts of who did what and why it was important. And Haywood County is full of people with stories to tell. So with so many avenues to take advantage, why not take advantage?

The King James Version at 400 Here inAmerica we love to mark the anniversaries of significant events in history. We note the 10th or 25th or 50th anniversaries of all sorts of things. We celebrate centennials, sesquicentennials, and bicentennials of something every year it seems. Well this year there is a quadricentennial celebration, and this time there is really something to celebrate. It was 400 years ago that the first King James Version of the Bible was published. It would become what most people would call the most influential book ever published. Amazingly, it was the work of a church committee. Who would have thought that 54 people, working together, could come up with a single work that is a masterpiece, not only from a theological standpoint, but literarily and culturally as well? People often speak of Shakespeare’s influence on the English language, and it is profound, but that of the King James Version of the Bible is far, far greater. For example, almost countless terms and words we use in everyday language came to us first in the King James Bible. “My brother’s keeper,” “salt of the earth,” “filthy lucre,” “giving up the ghost,” “sign of

the times,” “drop in the bucket” – these are all ideas expressed for the very first time in the King James Bible. There is no way to accurately measure the influence it had on the Englishspeaking world over the next four centuries. Who wrote it? Well, while those of us who call ourselves Christians believe every bit of the Bible is a result of divine inspiration, it appeared, at the time of its compilation, to be as much the result of political compromise as anything else. King James, who commissioned it, was trying to appease two warring factors of the Church of England who used different Bibles and believed different things, when he called the Hampton Court Conference in 1604 to work out their differences. Their efforts at reconciling their differing theologies failed completely, but they did come up with one idea they could both agree on. A new Bible translation should be written, one that would correct known errors in those then extant and that would bridge doctrinal differences between the two factions. The King acted at once, appointing 54 scholars and theologians to produce such a work. Seven years later, they presented him with a masterpiece. By some accounts, up to 80 percent of the King James Version of the Bible was the work of William Tyndale, who had translated the original Greek and Hebrew texts into English nearly a century earlier. Tyndale had been a priest and was a scholar/linguist who was determined to give ordinary Englishspeaking people a Bible in their own language. (On orders of the Church, it was only available in Latin at the time.) Tyndale thought it must be translated into English, however, so that “the boy that driveth the plough” would “know more of the scripture.” The English language, at that time, was looked down upon by not only the Church, but the educated elites as well, who considered it to be the coarse tongue of the masses, so when Tyndale was forbidden to translate at home, he went to Germany where he finished his translation, and in 1526, he had 3,000 copies printed, copies which he at once began

smuggling to England inside cotton bales. Those discovered by church officials were seized by church authorities and burned as heretical. Condemned for his efforts, Tyndale fled Germany to hide out in Belgium, but he was betrayed by a friend there, captured and executed by strangulation. His body was then burned in public. His final words were “Lord, open the King of England’s eyes.” Ironically, a few years later, King Henry VIII broke away from the Catholic Church, having fallen for the young and comely (to Henry anyway) Anne Boleyn, and the pope having refused to annul Henry’s marriage to Catherine of Aragon so that Henry could marry Anne. Henry then authorized an English language Bible, so Tyndale’s dying prayer was answered, after a fashion. The reason the committee that put together the King James Version of the Bible relied so heavily on Tyndale’s earlier translation to come up with their “Authorized Version” was that Tyndale’s version could hardly be improved upon. He was a fantastic writer for his, or any, time. His phrasing was marked by soaringly simplistic grandeur; he used basic Saxon vocabulary of short, powerful words and sentences he embellished with all sorts of English styles that nobody else on earth could have done at the time. And while the 1611 King James Bible was not the first English language version of the Bible, or even the most popular one for a few years after it came out, it soon became so popular, and so respected, that no one thought it necessary to come up with a revision for the next 270 years. And the beauty and grandeur of its poetry and prose became the standard of excellence for British writers and speakers over the next four centuries who emulated its style and grace. Today, of course, English is spoken all around the world, even in some parts of the United States, and everywhere it is, the words speakers and writers use are influenced by the long, long, 400 year old shadow of the King James Version of the Bible. Too bad so many of our actions aren’t.

Naifeh calls for an end to attacks on teachers, students and working families Speaker Emeritus Jimmy Naifeh, Wednesday called for an end to the continuous attacks on the teaching profession in the state legislature. “We are asking today that the majority party and the administration listen to the people of Tennessee,� said Naifeh (D-Haywood & Tipton Counties). “It is clear that the people in this state oppose the attacks being perpetrated by the Senate and House leadership. Teachers deserve the right to have a say in bettering their way of life, their classrooms and the lives of their students. Education: It’s about our kids.� An anti-teacher bill, which takes away the rights of teachers to

negotiate a contract covering their salary, benefits, working conditions, school safety, class size, planning time, time to teach, length of the school day, scheduling and other priorities, passed the Senate Education Committee recently and is awaiting a full Senate vote in the coming days. “A teacher’s work environment is a child’s learning environment,� Naifeh said. This week, the Senate Education Committee passed a bill stipulating that current tenure law would be stripped and not available until five years of probationary work was reached by teachers. The current probationary time is three years, after which

a teacher can’t be fired without probable cause. Even after tenure is obtained a teacher is still subject to disciplinary action or dismissal for incompetence, i n e f f i c i e n c y, insubordination, neglect of duty or unprofessional conduct. Teachers have signed off on “Race to the Top� legislation last year imposing stricter standards on themselves. That agreement has been broken, in that, more standards are being suggested, while Race to the Top guidelines have yet to be implemented, Naifeh added.

Naifeh calls for an end to attacks on teachers, students and working families Speaker Emeritus Jimmy Naifeh, Wednesday called for an end to the continuous attacks on the teaching profession in the state legislature. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are asking today that the majority party and the administration listen to the people of Tennessee,â&#x20AC;? said Naifeh (D-Haywood & Tipton Counties). â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is clear that the people in this state oppose the attacks being perpetrated by the Senate and House leadership. Teachers deserve the right to have a say in bettering their way of life, their classrooms and the lives of their students. Education: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about our kids.â&#x20AC;? An anti-teacher bill, which takes away the rights of teachers to

negotiate a contract covering their salary, benefits, working conditions, school safety, class size, planning time, time to teach, length of the school day, scheduling and other priorities, passed the Senate Education Committee recently and is awaiting a full Senate vote in the coming days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A teacherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work environment is a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s learning environment,â&#x20AC;? Naifeh said. This week, the Senate Education Committee passed a bill stipulating that current tenure law would be stripped and not available until five years of probationary work was reached by teachers. The current probationary time is three years, after which

a teacher canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be fired without probable cause. Even after tenure is obtained a teacher is still subject to disciplinary action or dismissal for incompetence, i n e f f i c i e n c y, insubordination, neglect of duty or unprofessional conduct. Teachers have signed off on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Race to the Topâ&#x20AC;? legislation last year imposing stricter standards on themselves. That agreement has been broken, in that, more standards are being suggested, while Race to the Top guidelines have yet to be implemented, Naifeh added.

News of Years Gone By March 13, 1981 Haywood poppers pop A world record was quite possibly set at Haywood High School last Thursday. A portable swimming pool temporarily became the container for the “World’s Largest Bowl of Popcorn.” Mu Alpha Theta mathematics honor society came up with the idea for the world record try. Beginning at 3:30 p.m., Thursday, 20 teams of approximately 200 students began popping corn all over town and racing back to the high school to dump the popcorn into the converted pool. By 5:15 p.m., a huge amount of popcorn towered conelike over the rim of the four foot pool. That night the popcorn was freely offered to spectators at the regional tournament. At the conclusion of the games that night, it appeared that hardly any of the popcorn was eaten. Authorities at

Guiness records said that publication of the project would be sufficient to document the record attempt, as they could not have a representative at Haywood High School.

$675,000 needed to upgrade city water Vice-Mayor Jim Halbrook, who represents the city board on the Utility Board, informed fellow members of the city board Tuesday night that an estimated $675,000 would be needed to bring the city water system up to date. The upgrade would include drilling a new 1,000 gallon per minute well, purchasing another aerator, and an addition to the present building on Powell Street that would include a room to store chlorine. A new 10inch water main would then be laid up Church Street to East College. The state has graded our water system down for several years due to the lack of storage space, Mr. Halbrook added.

Stanton youth in Bike-a-thon Stanton’s youngsters are preparing to take part in the Bike-a-thon for St. Jude Children’s Hospital in Memphis on March 22. Mrs. June Yarbrough, chairman for the event, said that they are hoping for a big turnout. “Eighteen children from Haywood County now receive the services of St. Jude, and we hope to give them a lot of support,” Mrs. Yarbrough said.

March 14, 1991 Hamilton ends Tomcat season Tomcat basketball season might have ended Monday night in Memphis, but not before the team and its players made themselves known across Tennessee. The Cats were beaten in substate action by Memphis Hamilton, 103-88. The Tomcats 20-13 record ranked them as one of the 16 best teams in Tennessee high school basketball. Tomcat junior

Tony Delk is currently the state’s leading individual scorer. Head coach Rick Sullivan said Delk is the only Tomcat in history to take the state’s leading scoring position.

Bypass “on go” Department of Tr a n s p o r t a t i o n Commissioner Jimmy Evans told a Haywood County delegation Tuesday morning that the southwestern bypass around Brownsville is expected to be completed by late 1994. The future of the bypass has been uncertain until this week when Evans told Haywood County Executive Franklin Smith, Brownsville Mayor Jimmy Halbrook, State Rep. Floyd Crain, and State Senator John Wilder that money in the 1990-91 budget to purchase rights-of-way for the bypass.

minimum of 30 days because of one pint of whiskey brought to school by one student. Only two of the eleven students were boys; the rest girls who passed the sample of whiskey around in a school bathroom. The infraction was discovered when one student became sick in class. The student who brought the liquor to school received three extra weeks in alternative school; the rest got 30 days.

March 15, 2001 Lighting a fire under child abuse In just under two years, a fiercely determined group of board members and friends of the Carl

Perkins Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse finished the job of paying for the center’s new home and celebrated with a noteburning Friday. Ed Woodside, chairman of First South Bank’s board, cheered former local board President Donna McAlpin, who signed the note, as supporters Diane and Butch Williams, Joe Wheeler Powell, and local program director Linda Burns fanned the flames. Along with First South’s creative financing of the project, several fund-raisers and private donations cleared the debt in short order. About 45 people attended a party that preceded the ceremony.

HHS Gospel Choir excels in competition The HHS Gospel Choir traveled to Memphis on Saturday, Feb. 26, to compete in the Mid-South Scholastic Choir Competition. The competition was open to concert, jazz, show, chamber, and gospel choirs from the MidSouth. According to Gospel Choir Director Rickey Reed, the hard work and diligence of the choir paid off. “In an effort to challenge the choir’s work ethic and raise money for a spring competition in St. Louis, Missouri, they entered the competition in Memphis and placed first,” Reed said. “The HHS Gospel Choir received a firstplace trophy and $1,500. Congratulations to the HHS Gospel Choir!” Memphis Sheffield High School placed second, and Jackson CentralMerry placed third.

Corner Time is marching on, isn’t it? The sun rises and the sun sets and another day has passed. Spring should be here soon. Flowers should soon be shooting forth from the ground. What is another mark of spring? Daylight savings time happens this weekend. We must remember to “spring forward” and turn our clocks ahead an hour. Ah well, time marches forth ... We have Toddler Time scheduled for Monday, March 15, at 11 a.m. All toddlers and their caregivers are invited to join us for stories and coloring here at the library. We love having toddlers and their caregivers with us for story time. Please join us! Toddler Time at the Library, what fun!

Do you know what day next Wednesday is? It’s St. Patrick’s Day! After doing a wee bit of research about this holiday, the following information was found (using the Tennessee Electronic Library, of course!) from the March 17, 2006, edition of The Olympian, byline Lisa O’pemberton: “Nearly 34 million Americans claim Irish ancestry; that’s about nine times the population of Ireland itself. In Thurston County, more than 12 percent claim Irish heritage. But today is St. Patrick’s Day, and ‘Everybody’s Irish,’ as the saying goes. Officially: This is the Roman Catholic feast day that honors St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. He was considered one of the most successful

missionaries in history, playing a large role in converting Ireland to Christianity and Catholicism. To celebrate: Don some green for pinch protection, wear a shamrock in a hat, eat Lucky Charms for breakfast (they’re magically delicious!) and add an O’ before your last name for the day.” What a wonderful day to celebrate! Have a great day everyone! Lunch & Learn is scheduled for Wednesday, March 24 at noon. The plans for a speaker are being finalized as we speak. Stay tuned for details. Bring a lunch, the library will provide drinks and dessert. Let’s Lunch & Learn at the Library! Happy Reading!

Haley Longoria, kindergarten student in Mrs. Fredia Evans’s class, was this six weeks’ Principal Club winner. The Brownsville Rotary Club donated the bike and the helmet and safety gear were given by the Brownsville Police Department.

Preschool students learn about tractors Preschool students at Anderson Early Learning Childhood Center had fun learning about tractors last Friday as Mr. Sonny Howse

brought his “big green tractor” and talked about farming. After he explained how tractors work, every child got a turn climbing in

the tractor and “driving.” Wonder how many future farmers we have at Anderson?

Leadership class visits local schools on Education Day Members of the Leadership Haywood County Class of 2010-11 enjoyed a visit at several of the schools on Feb. 24 as a part of the group’s Education Day. The day began at the Central Office where the staff welcomed the group and explained their duties at Central Office. Then Leadership class members continued with tours at Haywood Elementary and Haywood Junior High School, led by Principals Tracy Riddle and Yvette Blue, respectively. Next, the group traveled to Haywood High School and visited the Business Department and the Career and Technical Division. After lunch prepared by HHS Culinary Arts Department students, class members toured the Tennessee Technology Center, Whiteville, Brownsville campus, before returning to the Haywood County Schools Central Office. Leadership Haywood County is a chambersponsored program that allows community members selected for the program to become familiar with all aspects of the community. They attend seven class sessions, including one to Nashville to meet Brownsville-Haywood County legislators, and they receive a certificate of completion in April. Each class is required to complete a community service project.

Members of Leadership Haywood County visited several area schools.

Members of the Leadership class are Kevin Anderson, Kelly Brooke Brown, Constance Cherry, Joel L. Conner, Hayden Hooper, Tara Joyner, Jody Lea, Lewis Pearson, Elizabeth Pepper-Kiestler, Veronica L. Poke, Jeffery Richmond, Terrence Swift and Jesse Allen Williams.

School Superintendent announces charges against teacher; school reconfiguration When Haywood County School Board members met in regular session on March 8, they faced a variety of issues including the dismissal of a teacher, school reconfiguration, new batting cages, and the approval of next year’s school calendar and minigrant recipients. Superintendent Marlon King opened the meeting reading the charges he has brought against HHS softball coach and teacher Chanda Franks that, he

says, justify her dismissal. He charged that Ms. Franks allowed an unlicensed minor student to drive her vehicle exhibiting unprofessional conduct, incompetence and neglect of duty. Furthermore, he also charged Ms. Franks with conducting an inappropriate relationship with a minor student exhibiting neglect of duty, inefficiency and insubordination. The board voted to approve the charges and her dismissal. Superintendent King, during his monthly report,

Methodist Day School

gave board members and guests an outline of Common Core Standards that Tennessee has adopted, along with 26 other states, which are common on education standards. The new standards will be tested in the 2014-15 school year. He also announced preliminary plans for reconfiguration of the Haywood County Schools. Plans are to house pre-kindergarten and kindergarten classes at East Side Elementary; first, second and third grades at Haywood Elementary, fourth and fifth grades at Sunny Hill School, and sixth through eighth grades at Haywood Junior High School. Ninth through 12th grades will stay at Haywood High School, and plans are to have a ninth grade academy for freshmen. According to the preliminary plans, these changes will be implemented in the 2012-13 school year with a year of planning during the 20112012 school year. In other business, school board members approved next year’s school calendar. The first day of school for teachers will be on August 3, and for students, school begins with a half day on Aug. 8. Fall break has been set for Oct. 10-14. Schools will be closed at noon on Dec. 16 through Dec. 30 for winter break. Spring break is set for March 26-30, and schools will close for the 2011-2012 school year on May 24. Board members approved a proposal made by Board Member Alan Currie to build a batting cage at the HHS baseball field and one at the Girls’ Softball field. His proposal asked for $900 for the nets for each cage. A dissenting vote came from board member Daniel Thornton who pointed out that the schools should not be building anything at the softball field that is not on county/board of education property, even though the HHS girls’ team plays there. The board also approved to give 10 $200 mini-grants to local teachers. From East Side, Shalondria Hardin, Crystal Foster, Samantha Davis, Tanesha Walker, Denise Phillips, Jimmy Duvall and Tommy Oliphant received grants. From Haywood Elementary, Stacie LeFave was awarded a grant, and Terri L. Cummins from Haywood Junior High received one. The 10th award went to Cathy Stanz at Sunny Hill School. The next regularly scheduled meeting will be on April 12 at 6 p.m.

Broadway Manor Apartments During the month of February, the children who attended Methodist Day School at First United Methodist Church collected coins for the Backpack Club. The Backpack Club is a ministry of caring and sharing in the community. The coins were presented to Sammy Tillman. The children were treated to an ice cream party for their efforts.

Land of If you were wondering why Brownsville seemed so vacant last weekend, it was probably because most of the residents were crammed inside the Ann Marks Performing Arts Center. The Haywood High School Fine Arts Department put on a production of “The Wizard of Oz,” by L. Frank Baum, March 4 and 5, bringing the Land of Oz to the city for the second time in 30 years. The story of Dorothy and her little dog Toto traversing across the mysterious Land of Oz to get back home to Kansas captured audiences’ imagination, and mass attendance left few empty

seats in the theater. The play included these lead roles: Lindsey Yoder as Dorothy, Jay Clinton as the Scarecrow, Tevyn Greene as the Tinman, Reeves Garrett as the Lion, Lamarcus Williams as the Uncle Henry/ Guard, Martha Jane Jameson as Auntie Em, Robert Allen King as Hunk, David Castro as Hickory, Matthew Hooper as Zeke, Raven Ferrell as Miss Gultch, Ross Houghton as the Wizard of Oz/Professor, Kaitlyn Schwarz as Glinda, and Breanne Sills as the Wicked Witch of the West.

Tomcats turnaround during season By Calvin Carter Staff Writer It’s a scene often witnessed in feel good sports movies or fantastic NBA moments. Picture a team labeled as an unlikely winner due to a less than impressive win-loss record. And then out of nowhere, the team starts flowing like a well-oiled machine and wins start raining like a thunderstorm. This particular scene is perhaps a great way to describe what happened with the Haywood County High School Basketball Team. By December of last year, the Tomcats had a 7-12 record. Close to the end of the regular season, the Tomcats turned that into a 13-12 record. The Tomcats won their last six games before losing in the District Tournament. And despite the tournament loss, the Tomcats still managed to fight their way to the semi-finals. Coach Ray Jones attributed the turnaround to moving some of the freshmen players to the varsity line-up. There were no problems with team transition, as the freshmen players practiced with the varsity team a number of times before, Jones noted. Maybe that was what helped another key factor for the team: camaraderie. “I think a reason we had so much trouble in the beginning is because we didn’t gel,”

Jones said. “We had the talent, but didn’t have the chemistry or the relationship. We also knew that the freshmen had a lot of games under their belts, too.” Although the Tomcats came up short in the District 13-AA tournament, they were still able to make great progress. In the first round against Ripley, the Tomcats managed a 6860 victory. In the second round, the Tomcats produced an upset victory against Covington, who was then number three seed. The Tomcats won against the Chargers, 73-71. Standout players during that game included Jamarcus Comage with 21 points, Tyler Boyd with 16 points, and Dewayne Turner with 14 points, and Sadarius Delk with 10 points. The team would go on to face, and unfortunately, lose against Martin Westview with a score of 87-96. Looking at the points scored by members of the team, it’s apparent that the Tomcats did not go down without a fight. Standout scorers for that game included Tarecus Hughes with a score of 21 points—he would also score nine three pointers for the tournament; Jamarcus Comage with a score of 15 points; Leonard Beasley with a score of 13 points; and Chevy Hughes and Delk with a score of 8 points a piece.

Looking back, the Tomcats would go on to win against Obion County, one of many victories for the team. The turnaround isn’t the only thing the Tomcats can be proud of. Players James Gabbin, Tye Gibbs and Turner made All Academic District Team. Turner also made All Conference and All Tournament Team along with Boyd and Comage. Peering into the future, Jones is very confident that next season will definitely yield better results for the team. “We have a very talented class of players on the team,” Jones said. “We also have some talented eighth graders at the junior high school who will be coming up. These are talented kids

with the right attitude. And there’s no question that the camaraderie will be deeply rooted.” Talking with Jones’ team, it’s apparent that they feel the same about next season, too. “We’re going to have a great season,” freshman shooter Tarecus Hughes said. “We’re going to have a winning regular season, district and state because we’re going to work hard for it.” “We didn’t do the things we were suppose to at first during this season,” freshman star rebounder Delk said. “But next season, we’re going to accomplish what we set out to do.”

Tomcats are in action against Obion County back in January.

Hillville - Eurekaton News

With Marty M Williams

Happiness is…a warm puppy and a fluffy kitten to snuggle. Don’t have one? Adopt one! Whew! I’ll tell you what! This column almost didn’t happen this week! The AT&T guy just left, and it is Monday, 5:40 p.m. I am finally up and running with wireless Internet now…or any Internet for that matter!! Hooray! I’m hoping Vicky Fawcett will have mercy on my situation and let the column go into the paper. Cross your fingers! Some luscious scoop just came in from Ms. Ann Reid. She, along with her daughter, Betty Reid Hutcherson, Ricky and Alice Vestal and Sonny Hutcherson, were all in Memphis on Friday. They were attending Grandparents Day at Briarcrest Christian Academy in honor of grandson, Will Vestal, who is a student there! Don’t you love it? Ms. Virginia Wolfe, who most of us know from our children’s time at Anderson when Mr. Bennie Morrison (her brother) was principal, sent me some delicious scoop! Friday night, Bennie Morrison, Virginia and Lorraine Wolfe, had supper at Veranda Restaurant. They had a fabulous meal and fantastic fellowship with numerous others at the restaurant. As they finished eating and were preparing to leave, their waitress came to their table and informed them they did not have to pay because someone had picked up the tab for them! They went to the register to check about this information and the lady said the person wished to remain anonymous, not wanting them to know who paid for their meal! They want to thank that person and let them know how much they appreciate their kindness. Now isn’t that remarkable? I feel so moved when things like that happen, don’t you? My friend, Diane Presley (we worked at our hospital together) finally sent me some scrumptious scoop!

Everyone remembers Rick and Freda Sullivan. Rick was a coach at Haywood High and Freda was a nurse at our hospital at one time. Rick is the Athletic Director and Girls Varsity Basketball Coach at Fayette Academy in Somerville, TN. They won the Sub-State tournament a couple of Fridays ago, beating Ezell Harding Academy! With that win they will go to the State Tournament in Nashville and play Knoxville Webb! They will play at Lipscomb University. If they win that game they will play Saturday for the State Championship at 11 a.m.!! Brownsville still claims them as one of our own, so I know everyone will be excited to hear this news! Go, Rick, Go! I also got a tiny tidbit from a former Brownsvillian, Doris Burgess! She wrote that Huston is ready for the big Rodeo! She said it raises millions of charity dollars. Gene and Susan Vaughn are prominent there and have a splendid home in River Oaks. Doris said her family is fine and the babies keep them happy while being adored! Doris said she is sending ‘love to all’, especially Mary Lewis and Mary F. Trottman who sent her a lovely Valentine. Happy to hear from you, Doris!! As I mentioned in last week’s article, I was preparing to pop up to see my mom for a few days. It was her 79th birthday, and Jim and I wanted to celebrate it with her. The first gift she got a little ahead of time was…of course…a subscription to the Brownsville StatesGraphic! It tickled her to death and when she got her first paper, she ran across the street to share it with her best friend/ neighbors. THAT tickled me! She is such a joyful little mess! When we arrived and unloaded everything, we gave her the rest of her gifts (otherwise she would have snatched them out of my hands and ripped the paper off !) She loves a bag or a box to open! The second gift was a copy of this year’s Brownsville Homecoming DVD and the third one was a cell phone! Well, that third one truly discombobulated

her! She wasn’t “right” for the rest of the evening! Electronics, etc, etc. are NOT her thing and I think it almost pushed her over the edge! I programmed her contacts for her and then….tried to give her lessons on how to call and answer her new cell phone. Oh my gosh! I may have felt like an adult when I first arrived, but by the end of the following evening we had knocked heads over the operation of this new cell phone! She was the mother and I was the child and what a “hoot” that became! By the time we had to come back home, things were somewhat back into perspective again, but if you ever think you’re the grownup in a situation between you and your mama…get it over it! (ain’t gonna happen!) I love her to death! The tea for my closest friend, Beth Crider’s son, Knox and his brideelect is happening this Saturday at First United Methodist Church. I absolutely can’t get over the fact that Knox is old enough to marry! It will be lovely! I have some other fascinating news! A coffee will be held for Rachel Rooks, bride-elect of Drew Phillips this month. Congratulations, Rachel! She grew up around the corner from me and I cannot fathom that she is old enough to be having a “coffee” given in her honor! All the children in my neighborhood have or are about to leave the nest, marrying and having children… it makes me feel strange. Don’t forget the Carl Perkins Dinner & Auction this Saturday night! Tickets may be purchased from any Board member or call the Center at 7728378 for a table! Bring your friends, bid on the auction items, benefit from a delectable meal! $40 per ticket or $320 for a table of 8. It will make your heart smile! You all are making my column so much fun! Thank you for your scrumptious tidbits! We are cookin’ and jammin’! Don’t forget! I need SCOOP!!!! Send it to me at aroundtownmarty@ aol.com or 780-4111.

Crestview News We welcome Mrs. Joyce Patton and Mrs. Lott Molly to our facility. Hope they enjoy their stay with us. We would like to thank Mt. Pleasant Methodist Church, Vickie Williams,

and church members for the birthday gifts and bingo bananas. Thank you. Thanks to all the volunteers who came out this past week. Mrs. Mary Barkens, Bingo

Ladies, CC Club, Douglas Chapel, Westside Church of Christ, Russell Grove Baptist Church. Thank you! Thought for the week: “Every success story includes some mistakes.”

Our closing Thought for the Week as published in the Upper Room Devotional is by Phyllis Church of Kentucky. “We can be God’s hands and feet for someone today.” We don’t have to be far from home serving on a mission field to help others. God offers us little opportunities every day to serve someone else in some way. I pray that God will open my eyes to little acts of kindness that I can do right here and give me a loving heart so that I happily serve. If you have news to share, please call me at 772-1885 after 5 p.m. Until next week, God Bless.

Holly Grove News By Martha H. Jones “Living a Life of Victory” was the subject of the message. The Christian life is a struggle, but one victory. General Douglas MacArthur once said, “There is no substitute for victory.” Each one of us is in a spiritual warfare. We have a sinful nature that is inclined toward evil, plus the Devil is seeking whom he may devour, but God wants us to have victory… There may be sins that we tolerate, that we think we can’t live without, like questionable relationships that lead us astray, questionable business practices, ungodly habits or pet sins that turn and trap us. You hear people say, “I can take it or leave it,” but most choose to take it. There may be priorities that hinder us. We are to lay aside the sin that so easily besets us and get rid of the insignificant clutter in life that slows us down in our walk with Christ. Danny Simpson sang a beautiful song Sunday, entitled, “My Anchor Holds.” The church welcomed Tyler Grover and Ashlynn Young into its fellowship Sunday on the profession of their faith.

Happy birthday to Jackie Hayes, Joann Smith, Ariana Saveh, Billie Lynn Haynes, and Keith Gambill. Leland Simpson will be 89 years young on March 9. Happy Birthday, Leland. Carolyn Watridge and her daughters Jane Hopper and Debbie Clements and Josh and Jamie Chandler surprised Carolyn’s daughter Gail McCaleb at her home in Memphis with a birthday celebration last Wednesday night. Alan and Debbie Jones and Jennifer drove to Maryville last weekend to visit with Ryan and Heather Bolinger and their little son Jensen and attended church with them on Sunday before returning home. We express our heartfelt sympathy to Miss Dorothy Kolwyck and her family in the death of Mr. Bob Kolwyck. They were so nice to employ our son Alan while he attended high school. Those on the sick list this week are Bob Alexander who underwent surgery, but is home recuperating, Ann Latham also underwent surgery and is at Maplewood

Convalescent Home for therapy, Doug Harvey at Vanderbilt hospital, Lynn Haak is scheduled for knee surgery and Mildred West is home after spending time in the hospital. Remember these along with Jean Climer, Fletcher Lewis, Danny Murphy, Toni Perry, and Virginia Taylor. Others to include are Leland Simpson, Carey Lipford, Billy Cox, Ruth Taylor, Roy Lewis, Betty Barden, and Perry and Mona Watridge. Also include Brother Ralph Brown, Ann Hanley, Eve Houy, Joann Chapman, Tony Davis, and Owen Stevens. We were happy to see Elaine Brown able to be back at church Sunday. My daughter-in-law, Debbie Jones, gave me a little plaque that I have hanging in my kitchen that reads: “Sorrow looks back, worry looks around, and faith looks up.” Life can surely be a struggle at times, but as we look up to God in faith and know that He is looking down on us and is aware of all our problems, it will make a difference to realize He is with us each step of the way.

By Gail Barden Sunday was a great day at Allen. The choir sang the special music, and Bro. Phil delighted everyone with an inspiring message. Linda Merrick is home and recuperating after having knee surgery this week. We hope she will continue to improve. Happy Birthday to David Blurton, Brannon Williams and Brenda

Marlar. We extend our sincere sympathy to Mrs. Dorothy Kolwyck and family. Mr. Bob was a true southern gentleman, and he will be missed. Please continue to pray for this sweet family. Others on our prayer list are Linda Merrick, Martha Crutcher, Jerry Baggett, Mabel Williams, Jimmy and Carolyn

Danley, Russ Lein and Steve White. Our Bible verse for this week is Luke 12:34, which states, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” If you have news or prayer requests, please contact me at gail. barden@gmail.com. Have a great week.

Stanton News By Debbie Sterbinsky Last week I announced the cleanup project by the Greater Fredonia Baptist Church. The date has been changed to Saturday, March 26, two weeks from the original date. This was a great success for them last year! Cleanup begins at nine that morning and they will be furnishing free food and drinks! Check out their photo from last year on our website at: www. haywoodcountybrownsville.com/ haywoodcounty/Stanton.aspx. We need to let the Fredonia Fever rub off on the rest of us! I was approached a couple of weeks ago about the history of Fredonia and where and why the name was chosen. Anybody have an idea? I’ve been coming up dry on this one. OK, speaking of clean up, this has gone on way too long. We have a few cemeteries around here in dire need of a spring-cleaning! The job consists of hauling off broken limbs, dead trees, and raking leaves while not damaging any headstones. This really should have been done over the winter, but weather was an obstacle. We need to set up a Cemetery Committee. If you are interested please give us a call at 548-2564. We have some that will never be found again if we don’t get them cleaned up soon. A notice has been placed in the States Graphic for bids on the construction needed on the Stanton Cannery. I’ve been told specific specs must be met. For more information you may contact your Stanton Mayor at 548-2565 (please leave a message), or email him at Stantonmayor@gmail.com. Since we’ve

had so much trouble with the loan/ grant we applied for over a year ago (they tell us money is not available), Haywood County Mayor Franklin Smith has a backup plan that should help us out until we can obtain the funding. The Dancyville Community Center will be holding a fund raising breakfast Saturday, March 12, at 8 a.m. Donations will be accepted and proceeds will go toward a heating unit for the school. We have more Facebook pages up and running, please check out the pages listed under Stanton Cannery, Town of Stanton, Stanton Volunteer Fire Department, Historic Stanton Presbyterian Church, and the Stanton Welcome Center/Library. Please “like” our pages and add comments! We are still compiling a list of Stanton churches and contact information to put on our website and Facebook page. We know the States Graphic runs a page of these each week, but Stanton is missing several churches on this list. Please contact us so we may add you to our list if you are not already listed. We need your hours of service, contact person information, and even pictures if you have them. Residents and former residents of Stanton, you may mail Stanton news to me at P.O. Box 181, Stanton, TN 38069, reach me at the Stanton Welcome Center/Library at 731-548-2564, or e-mail me at: Proftster@aol.com. Please put “Stanton News” in the subject line. Together we will look at the past, look toward the future, and report current events.

Douglas News By Alvis M. Bond Saturday, March 5, was a great day for the residents of Douglass Community when Dr. Cynthia B. Hopson invited a group of students from Philander Smith College, Little Rock, Ark. that was on tour through this area. They visited the Douglass Community center to interview several residents of life in Haywood County. The students were very attentive and appreciative of the opportunity as we were for their visit. Because of inclimate weather, several of our elderly residents were unable to be in attendance, but we were very thankful to have them come address and answer their questions and concerns. Thank you to: Mr. and Mrs. William Graves, Wilma T. Boyd, James and Mamie Turner, Carrie D. Powell, and Mr. Earl Rice, a very special thanks to Dr. Hopson and Rev. Roger Hopson, B & B Enterprises, and Mr. James Boyd, and to everyone that participated at the Community Center, and the group from the

Community Center. They continued on to Brownsville Family Restaurant for a very delicious meal prepared by Ms. Carolyn and her staff. There they were greeted by Principal Dorothy Bond of Haywood High School, Mr. and Mrs. Maltimore Bond, Superintendent of schools, Mr. Marlon King, and Mr. John Ashworth. It was all about encouraging the students to set goals and stay focused. Then they visited DunbarCarver Museum where they met Dr. Dorothy Grandberry. The whole day was a great success for the students as well as all the participants. Again, we appreciate all the cooperation from everyone. A very gracious appreciation to Dr. Cynthia and Rev. Roger Hopson for making it all possible for their coming to our area. I hear that Mr. John Mask’s book signing was a great success at the Elma Ross Library. Also joining him was his brother Floyd Mask Jr. who is a great artist. He

had beautiful paintings to present. As some of you may not know that John’s parents live in the Douglass Community and attend Douglass Chapel C.M.E. Church, Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Mask Sr. Parents are always proud of their children’s progress and hope the best for them as we try and encourage them to do their best. Our prayer list this week include: Opal Watkins, Walter Miller, Hattie Watkins, Rosa Miller, Emma Miller, Rev. J.V. Carney, Jackson Rice, Betty J. Brooks, Gladys Bowles, Edward Vaulx Jr, Harvey Chapman, Callie Brooks, Callie Langford, Marie Browning, Shirley Hunter, Jimmie L. Turner, Vernita Tisdale, Luevenia Boyd, Betty Sanders, Laulla Pruitt, Robert Turner, Hattie S. Sanderlin, and Emma L. Jones. Our birthdays for this week include: Jackie and Lavelle Miller. Sunday services were enjoyed and inspired by all in attendance where Pastor Doris Lewis delivered a very inspiring message “Run the Race.”

Bethel - Belle Eagle News By Betty Scott Lately, I have been visiting our local library and checking out audio books. This way you can still do your housework and listen to a book being read by someone else. With the high price of gas, we need to find ways to stay entertained at home. We have some anniversaries for the month of March: Gaylon and Patricia Herron, 3-17; James Earl and Nancy White, 3-19; and Wade and Brandie Howard, 3-27. Also the birthdays for this month are: Harmon Lewis, 3-2;

13 Corresp.indd 1

Lucille Matlock, 3-14; Kenny Kendrick, 3-25; Phil Scott, 3-27; and Terri Knight, 3-31. Happy anniversary and happy birthday to everyone! Don’t forget to turn your clock forward this Saturday night as Daylight Saving Time begins on March 13. Charlie Greenway had lap banding surgery and is home doing fine. Illa Mae Matlock’s brother is in Dyersburg Hospital. Karen Climer Strong, who had shoulder surgery a few months ago, will be having another surgery on the same arm. Karen has

been in rehab and is still in pain. Lucille Matlock and Ricky and Betty Scott visited Mrs. Margaret Howse, Virginia Leath, Cornelia Kendrick, and Dodie Parks at Crestview last Sunday after church. Let’s keep all our sick in our community in our prayers. There is so much sickness in our world, and those of us that have good health should not take it for granted. Thought for the week: “To err is human, but this you should learn: Don’t be human on your tax return.”

Wellwood/Zion News By Denise Phillips

Are you a “replenisher or a depleter”? Are you a giver or a taker? As Brother Mark Conway continued his series of sermons in Ephesians Sunday morning, this was his question. This follows putting on the new life and being ministers to others! After Church, Mama (Alice Elrod), came over and had lunch with us as we celebrated Jason and Justin’s birthday. She, Tommy, and Judy Elrod also traveled to Franklin with us Saturday to celebrate with Ethan at the Brentwood Skating Rink. Sunday night the Fincher Family from Frog Jump sang at Zion. This is a Southern Gospel family including Congressman Stephen Fincher. If you have never heard this group sing, then you are missing a real blessing. We were delighted to have Dr. Charles and Linda Pratt from the HBA present for this event, as well as many other visitors. If I started trying to name them I know I would leave someone out, so I won’t! By now all of you know that the “Wizard of Oz” was a huge success for HHS. Several youth

from Zion were a part of this hit performance, although some were behind the scenes. They were Kaitlyn Schwarz, Sarah Lewis, Emily Wright, Kaylee Avant, Blake Porch, Sara Tinsley, Emily Siler, Ethan Williams, Will Taylor, and Kaleb Neal. Congratulations to Zion’s youth for a job well done and to all of the HHS crew! Although he wasn’t there, Scottie Morris reported 20 men attended the prayer breakfast Thursday morning at ZBC. Scottie had to take care of Betty who had fallen at work the day before. Brother Mark Conway led the devotion. Thanks, men, for your continual commitment to this ministry! Ricky Ellington’s Martial Arts Class demonstrated their talent with an outstanding performance Thursday night. Some of the girls were supposed to share information, but I guess they forgot. However, everyone that attended the event had only good things to say about the kids that performed! Hopefully, next time Judy Elrod won’t cook chicken and dumplings on the same night so I

can go. Since I get my birthday wishes from Facebook’s calendar, if you’re not listed then I have no way of knowing. Therefore, I missed David Tritt’s birthday on March 3. I also missed his grandmother Patsy Tritt’s birthday in February. I heard she celebrated a whole week due to reaching the “retirement” age! Happy belated birthday wishes to: David and Patsy and I hope you enjoyed your special day! Other birthday wishes go to: Dessie Haywood (8th), Katie Lewis (12th), and Robbyn Pocock (13th). Correspondent Vicki Williams celebrated on the 9th! Haywood / Fayette Baptist Association’s VBS Clinic will be held March 26 from 9-11:30 a.m. at Zion Church. I hope to see you there! Continue praying for Evangelist Wade Akins as he leads Zion’s Spring Revival April 3 - 6. Pray for those who are sick, our military personnel and their families, the shut-ins and elderly, those who have lost loved ones, and the leaders of our country. Call me at 772-4257 if you have news. People want to know!

Sugar Creek

Retirement Center News

By Shirley Tucker, Activity Director We had a great time this week here at Sugar Creek. The Casey Jones quartet came to sing for us with six singers. I always love seeing exactly how many their “quartet” consists of. David Marbury, Ricky Adair, and Steve Downen came up from Mississippi to entertain our residents. The group is called “Two or More,” and they sing hymns and western music. I’m going to tell that Casey Jones bunch they ought to rename themselves “Four or More” cause you never know how many there will be. Anyway, David Marbury even played “Great Balls of Fire” on the piano. It was fantastic. They were all really talented, even singing a song or two in Spanish. David’s sister, Judy Welch and her husband, Joe, came from Paris to hear them. We played Noodle Volleyball this week with the Delta and Cotton Districts each winning one game. They have to play again next week for the tiebreaker. Katie McAdams, Arline Boisvert, Virginia Dickinson, Jottye Newman, Geneva Cooper, Alstine Hare, Wanda (Katie McAdam’s helper), Jessie Howell, and I had a big time. A big thank you to Janette Pate for sending her gorgeous birthday flowers to Sugar Creek for our residents to enjoy. Her big brother, Bill Walker, arranged them and put them in Brownsville Baptist Church in honor of her birthday. Happy birthday, Janette. A group of children and adults came from Harmony Baptist Church this week to bring fruit to each of our residents. They loved that. Fresh flowers and fresh fruit are always welcome.

Alystine Hare, Geneva Cooper, Virginia Dickinson, Diane Hooper, and I all went to College Hill to see the “Wizard of Oz” last week and had a great time. The students were all absolutely wonderful and will probably head straight to Broadway as soon as the play closes here. I have been counting postcards all week and looking at every single one to find the prettiest, sweetest, ugliest, etc., and which one came the farthest. I’m counting them in my sleep instead of sheep! I now have it figured out and will be announcing the winners in next weeks column. One of our esteemed owners, Mr. Ken Hall, was here this week interviewing folks for the new facility over in Somerville. We’re always glad to have Ken. He brightens our day. Come back soon, Ken. You might even bring Gary with you – he’s a fun guy, too. Grace Mulligan’s

daughter, Linda Clark from California, and her niece, Betty Rodriquez from Memphis, came in to celebrate all three of their birthdays together this past week. That was a real party waiting to happen. Happy birthday to all of you. See you next week. It’s not quite time to rock yet!

Our talented guest in the “Cook’s Nook” this week is Ann (Mrs. Patrick) Mann. A vibrant, articulate lady with a transparent love for her husband; four children, David, John, Lizbeth and Tanner; her home; travel and cooking, Ann is also a longtime supporter of the YMCA. When she’s not out working in her yard, or working out, creating food to take to the Symphony or helping her husband, she’s planning a pasta party (her favorite kind) with at least four different kinds of pastas: Italian spaghetti, chicken tetrazzini, linguini with clam sauce, lasagna, salad, bread and make your own ice cream sundaes or she’s planning a trip to somewhere exciting – this year she’s off to Africa. Ann was raised in Covington where her physician father treated her with great encouragement as she mastered her cooking skills. When her mother would go visiting, Ann, the oldest of four, would do the cooking. She recalled one of those

Béchamel sauce for Lasagna 350 degrees 1/8 cup butter 1/8 cup flour 1 teaspoon salt 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg 1/8 teaspoon black pepper 3 cups hot milk 1 cup hot milk or ½ cup heavy cream Melt butter in a pan, blend in flour, salt, nutmeg and pepper. Cook until it bubbles to cook the flour thoroughly, then very gradually add 3 cups hot milk. Stir over medium heat until thickened, let simmer for several minutes, then stir in another cup of hot milk or heavy cream. To make lasagna, alternate in a baking dish a layer of the Ragu Bolognese sauce, a layer of lasagna, a layer of béchamel sauce, some freshly grated Parmesan or Romano cheese and repeat layers until the dish is full, ending with béchamel sauce, top with a heavy grating of Parmesan cheese and bake in a 350 degree oven until the cheese has melted and the dish is brown and bubbly (30 – 45 minutes)

times when her father brought home a rabbit, and when he cleaned it, he told her to go cook it; when she asked how, he said, ”You know how to read don’t you?” and she went and found the recipe and prepared it. She’s been finding and adjusting recipes ever since. She loves pasta for its variety and says that if you like it, you like it a lot. She can feed 40 in her dining area and creates her own centerpieces for each occasion. As we chatted, she shared with me her thoughts on some of the foods she has tasted in some of her visits to Europe, where she declares French food to be the best, the most creative; and English food is heavy with lots of potatoes, pork and lamb. However, she feels that a strong point of English food is the lamb, which is much tastier than American lamb. By geography, they don’t have the pasture for cattle, so they have perfected raising and cooking lamb. European dining is very relaxed,

eaten and enjoyed in a leisurely manner. India and the Middle East dining, she says, is very interesting. They serve the food in separate dishes to your table, you can get it hot or not, and you serve yourself. It’s also an adventure in guessing what you might be eating as some of the accents are difficult to discern, and you may not understand the answer to your question. As far as cooking at home in the USA, she likes for the plate to go together – not too many starches and she’s not much of a dessert person, but she’s very adventurous in all other food choices having tried bison, buffalo meat, rattlesnake and escargot. She says she and her family will eat most anything. Her attitude is you’ve got to take everything in. Life is an adventure. Her enthusiasm for living a full life is irresistible. This charming, captivating hostess has shared a mélange of wonderful recipes for us to try. Enjoy!

Peruvian Seviche (An appetizer) 2 pounds whitefish Juice of 6 limes, 3 lemons, 3 sour oranges or enough to make 2 cups juice 4 teaspoons salt ¾ teaspoons black pepper ¼ cup vinegar 2 medium onions sliced very thin 2 or 3 medium red or yellow hot peppers slivered

SBISA Chocolate Sin Cake (from Café SBISA, New Orleans) 10 ounces semi-sweet chocolate / found in chunks 10 ounces unsalted butter at room temperature Butter for pan 1 ½ cups sugar 8 large eggs Butter 9 ½ inch round cake pan liberally. Line bottom with wax paper and butter the paper. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In the top of a double boiler, melt chocolate over hot water. Add the butter and stir until melted and mixture smooth. Remove from heat, whisk the sugar gradually into the chocolate mixture until it is thick. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs until they are foamy. Stir them into chocolate mixture until it is thick. Pour in round pan, place it in 14” X 11” pan and add enough boiling water to come up halfway up the side of the baking pan. Bake in the center of oven for 1 ½ hours. Remove the cake and let it sit for 10 minutes. Invert on a plate. Serve at room temperature with coffee flavored whipped cream.

Green Beans From the kitchen of Ann Mann 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 tablespoon crushed garlic ½ cup chopped shallots 1 tablespoon fresh thyme or Italian seasoning 1 cup dry white wine ¼ teaspoon sea salt ¼ teaspoon fresh ground pepper 1 pound fresh whole green beans Walnuts, slivered almonds, or cherry tomatoes (optional) Heat oil with garlic, onions and seasoning over medium heat until onions are translucent. Add green beans, stir to coat. Add dry white wine, stir, add sea salt, fresh ground pepper. Can also add walnuts, almond or cherry tomatoes. Stir until liquid is reduced. NOTE: These are the quantities I (Mary Beth) used to make this dish as Ann does not measure when she makes them. You can adjust seasoning according to your family’s taste. The almonds add a great crunch! What a fun and delicious recipe this is!

Financing for whatever moves you.

Cut fish into bite size pieces and place in a bowl. Pour juice over it. Add salt and pepper and vinegar. Let stand about 6 hours in the refrigerator. Pour boiling water over the onions and drain. Add to the fish. Add slivered hot peppers and let set overnight in the refrigerator. In Peru, seviche is served with potato chips, popcorn, sweet potatoes or kernels of corn that are about an inch long and almost as broad. Peruvians usually combine three citrus juices plus vinegar in their seviche.

Get on the bus: Arkansas students visit Haywood County By Calvin Carter Staff Writer When one thinks of the Civil Rights Movement, or fighters for social justice, Haywood County would have to come to mind. This was perhaps a driving thought for Arkansas college students who decided to visit Haywood County last Saturday, March 5. Students from Little Rocks’ Philander Smith College decided to use to their spring break for a special tour centered on social justice. “At Philander Smith College, they have an emphasis on social justice, and they’re trying to raise a new generation of social activists,” Dr. Cynthia Bond Hopkins said. “So I wanted them to see real people so that the students could understand that young people were very much a part of the Civil Rights Movement, and it’s when you’re young, you have the courage to go and try to make the world better because you’re not afraid of anything. And I wanted them to see some real people who have done that.” Besides Haywood County, students were going to tour Birmingham, Ala.; Charlotte, S.C.; and Savannah, Ga. Haywood County was the first stop of the tour, with students starting at Douglass. Considering the history of Haywood County, it would

Students had an opportunity to visit the Dunbar-Carver Alumni Museum. make sense to some why it served as a proper stop for students. “It’s a prime location because of what went on during the movement and what also prompted probably some of the movement,” Hopson said. “I thought it was important for

these students to see the people and hear the stories.” And that’s exactly what students got the opportunity to do. After Douglass, they stopped at the Brownsville Family Restaurant where, during a home-style meal, civic-minded

leaders like Cynthia Bond Rawls, Dorothy Bond, Marlon King and John Ashworth got the chance to talk a bit about the social history of the county, as well as those who played a huge factor in it. Afterwards, their trip in Haywood County concluded

at the Dunbar-Carver Alumni Museum, where Dr. Dorothy Grandberry and Ashworth briefly spoke, and left students with some important parting words to consider. “With history, it really doesn’t do us any good unless we use it,” Ashworth said.

Talk to your neighbors, then talk to us. Odds are, they’re already part of the State Farm® family. John Ashworth was one of many speakers for students.
