Hardister to retire from Chancery Court Suspect in Cash Express armed robbery arrested
By Calvin Carter Staff Writer Chancellor George Robert Ellis of the 28th Judicial District of Tennessee recently sent a press release announcing the retirement of Judy Hardister, Clerk and Master of Haywood County. Hardister will retire after her term officially ends on April 30 of this year. A Haywood County native, Hardister is the daughter of the late Melvin and Ruby Qualls and the wife of Edward L. Hardister, Assistant Attorney General of the 28th Judicial District. Hardister is also the mother of Dr. Robert Edward Hardister and the grandmother of Landon and Preston Hardister. Hardister noted that her decision on retirement has been long-thought, and figured that it was just time to go. “My appointment is up April 30, and I’ve had four, six-year appointments,” Hardister said. “I’ve been here 24 years as the Clerk and Master, and I’m just ready to retire. Let someone else do it.” Although Hardister has been Clerk and Master for 24 years, she’s been involved with the Haywood County Courts much longer. Hardister began work in the Haywood County
Judy Hardister, Clerk and Master of Haywood County courthouse in 1977, after Judge Dixon Hood contacted her about working for him. It was 1985 when she began working for the Chancery Court, and two years later, took the position of Clerk and Master. Although Hardister is happy to retire, there are some things that will be missed. “I’m going to miss the job, and I’m going to miss the people,” Hardister said. “I love people. I love working with people. I have met so many people through this job. But while I’m still able, I would love to get out and do some volunteer work or have some time to myself.” Hardister’s position will be taken by Brownsville resident
Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk Make the right play to save your life and others. The Brownsville Police Department announced today that they are joining forces with the National Football League (NFL), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and other State and local highway safety and law enforcement officials to remind everyone to act responsibly by designating a sober driver if they plan on drinking alcohol on Super Bowl Sunday. “We want to pass our safety message to everyone who will be drinking this weekend, real Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk,” said Chief Lea. “Please call the right play for the big game and pass your keys to a designated driver before the Super Bowl

party begins. Getting caught driving while impaired will earn you a costly penalty from local law enforcement and may even result in a turnover of your driving privileges.” Super Bowl Sunday is one of America’s biggest and most entertaining national sporting events as friends and families gather to socialize and watch the big game. Yet, it has also become one of the nation’s most dangerous days on the roadways due to impaired driving. If you are hosting a Super Bowl party: Remember, you can be held liable and prosecuted if someone you served ends up in an impaired-driving crash. Make sure all of your guests designate their sober drivers in advance, or help arrange ride sharing with other sober drivers. Serve lots of food and include lots of nonalcoholic beverages at the party. Stop serving alcohol at the end of the third quarter of the game and begin serving coffee and dessert. Keep the numbers for local cab companies handy, and take the keys away from anyone who is thinking of driving while impaired. If you are attending a Super Bowl party or watching at a sports bar or restaurant: Designate your sober driver before the party begins and give that person your car keys. Avoid drinking too See Drive Page A3
Sarah Hardberg Levy, who has served as Assistant District Attorney for the State of Tennessee and Assistant Attorney General for the State of Arkansas. Although Hardister is confident that Levy will do a great job, she did mention that she’ll be ready to help if needed. “All I can say is that I’ll be glad to help her,” Hardister said. “There are so many different things that go on in this office, but I will be available to help anytime she needs it.” Hardister admitted that Chancery Court can definitely keep one on their toes. The court deals with cases from divorces, delinquent taxes, adoptions, and child support for example.
This can make for some unpredictable moments. “You never know what’s coming in. You know, somebody could call and ask, ‘Can you do a Probate in 30 minutes from now?’” she said. “So you just kind of go with what comes in.” “You’re involved in so many different things that it does make it an interesting job.” Facing retirement in just a few months, Hardister said that she’d enjoyed the job and only done her best. “I thoroughly enjoyed being the Clerk and Master, and definitely enjoyed having contact with the people that I have met,” she said. “I tried to do a good job, tried to be a servant to the public as best I could.”
Lymus Brown By Calvin Carter Staff Writer The Brownsville Police Department announced their capture and arrest of the suspect involved in the armed robbery of Cash Express located at 27 East Main in Brownsville. Monday Jan. 31, officers of the Criminal Investigations Division of the Brownsville Police Department arrested Lymus Brown, 33, of Jackson in connection with the armed robbery. Authorities said that Brown was identified through the investigation by the Brownsville Police Department and was taken into custody at the Probation and Parole Office in Jackson when
he reported to his parole officer. On Tuesday, Jan. 18, police were searching for a then unidentified black male who entered Cash Express, approached the counter, and discussed cashing a check with the employee there. The suspect then held a black, semi-automatic handgun, laid it on the counter and then told the employee to give him the money. After the employee complied with the him, the suspect ran out the door and back west on Main Street toward the old Regions Bank building, police said. Authorities had a cell phone that the suspect dropped on the way out of the store, which had a photo of the suspect.
“Cook’s Nook” to return with Mary Beth Smith By Calvin Carter Staff Writer Many in Brownsville are familiar with Marybeth Smith. The resident has kept herself busy with numerous activities from helping out with Habitat for Humanity to operating her business, the Coffee Pot, located at 315 West Main. It looks like life is about to become busier for Smith, who will now take on The Brownsville States-Graphic’s “Cook’s Nook” column. Still, despite whatever added workload the column may add, she’s definitely excited and looking forward to it, especially the added advantages. “Well, the only thing I like better than cooking is talking about cooking, so this way I get to meet all of the good cooks in Brownsville, and I get first chance at all the recipes,” Smith said. “I’m also a people person. I love people. And it just sounds like a lot of fun.” For Smith, cooking has served as a creative outlet. In fact, her approach to cooking is open to change. “Almost every recipe that I make, I add something to it because I want to see something different,” she said. “I often take recipes and recreate them. I have a chicken stroganoff recipe that I took from a beef stroganoff recipe where I cut the fat, cut the calories, cut the salt and make it healthy and
delicious.” Smith has cooked since she was child. Her first dish was actually cornbread she made when she was six, which she described as “crunchy on the outside and moist on the inside.” At eight, she began cooking supper after school for her mother. Before her years of experimenting in the kitchen, Smith said that she followed recipes exactly. And she feels it’s a general rule many others should follow, when learning a new recipe. “They should follow the recipe as it’s written cause that’s what I had to do when I first started cooking,” she said. “Growing up, they would give me exactly the recipe and say ‘this is what you do.’ And I did it exactly, and as you cook, you learn.” Smith also noted that today, with people spending less time in the kitchen, following a recipe exactly is probably essential. “Southern cooking is slow cooking. When we grew up, my grandmother, your grandmother, they threw in a pinch of this and a dash of that,” she said. And you know they had a special cup that they used for their measuring cup, which might have actually been a cup and a half. And that’s how they cooked, and I think that’s how we’re all raised to cook.” “But now we don’t stay at home and cook all day,” she continued.
Marybeth Smith “When our parents and grandparents were growing up, they were cooking for the men to come in at lunch, and you know we had stayat-home moms and you could cook like that. You can’t do that anymore. You go home and you’ve got 30 minutes to cook before the husband or kids come home. So you have to follow the recipe to get it right. We don’t have the leisure of cooking that way anymore.” For Smith, there isn’t a favorite recipe. The cookbook collector loves to work with a variety of recipes, even if the end results aren’t what she initially planned. “I love any good recipes. I’ve got a few bad ones that I keep working with,” she said laughing. “When my children were growing up, they hated green beans and vegetables, so I would make them eat one green bean,” she continued.
Every time I served it, I said, ‘You don’t have to them all but you have eat one green bean.’ And then they acquired a taste for them, so now green beans are one of their favorite foods. And that’s what I do. I keep cooking until I like it or I get a taste for it, or I get it right.” For “Cook’s Nook,” Smith noted that readers can look forward to getting a better look at Brownsville’s finest cooks, a look at more family recipes and both shining the light providing information to a new generation of cooks. Smith is also hoping to get a “laugh or two” since she does plan on having fun with the column. It’s perhaps no doubt that Smith will do great with the column, whose popularity is rooted in good recipes and tradition. “The recipes are really See Cook’s Page A3

The new store opened at 240 East Main Street in Brownsville on Saturday, Jan. 29, and will employ approximately eight full and part-time team members. Announcing the opening, Mickey Newsome, Chief Executive Officer of Hibbett Sporting Goods, Inc. noted, “This convenient new location is a winwin for our company and the Brownsville community. We are very excited to be serving the customers in this area.” Hibbett Sports stocks a large selection of athletic footwear, athletic apparel and team athletic equipment. “With the buying power of a national company, we offer our customers the convenience of buying the best in sports,

Book signing to be held at Elma Ross Library Brownsville author John J. Mask has returned again with his follow-up to his first book, “One Man’s Mind.” His second book, with artwork from family members Floyd and Dana Mask, “Revealing the Mask,” was recently released. Although the book was planned to have immediately followed his first book, there were a few hitches that delayed its release. “It basically took six months to get everything together,” Mask said. Mask, the son of Floyd Mask Sr. and Darlene Nelson, kept himself busy before the publishing of his second book, speaking around the West Tennessee area, participating in mentorship programs and book signings of his first work. “One thing you’ve got to realize is that when you’ve got that door open, you’ve got to try to take advantage of any opportunities because you never know when it might close,” he said. Mask described his book as a piece that
gives more insight and in-depth to a number of subjects, from our nation growing apart to even racism, which perhaps differs from Mask’s first book of poems, which was perhaps more interpersonal. Most of Mask’s inspiration came from his wife, Marie Mask, and his mother who passed away last year. “Most of my inspirations came through my mom,” he said. She said ‘I want you to continue doing this because I’m so proud of you.” Mask has remained grateful for the people of Brownsville being very supportive of his work and will hope that support continues, as they read, listen or tell others about his work, he said.
Mask will hold a book signing at the Elma Ross Library March 5 from 1 to 4 p.m. In the meantime, people can pick up “Revealing the Mask” at the Brownsville Religious Center or at www. feelmepublishing. com.

The Eyes Have It I was talking once to a man who had been a delegate to the 1964 Democratic National Convention. The highlight of the event for him, he said, had been a reception given by the Kennedy family at which he got to meet Jackie Kennedy. Well, he at least got to shake her hand in a receiving line, but it affected him profoundly. “There must have been a thousand people in the room,” he said, “and all she said was ‘It’s nice to meet you. Thank you for coming,’ but for those few seconds, I felt like I was the only person in the room.” “How did she do that?” I asked. “With her eyes,” he said. “She looked at me as if I were the most fascinating man in the world. They talk about that Kennedy charisma; well I guarantee you that it’s real!” I’ve heard other people say similar things about the Clintons, both Bill and Hillary. I once talked to a republican woman who had met Ms. Clinton who couldn’t get over how engaging she seemed. “I don’t like her politics at all,” she said, “but you just would not believe how charming she is when she meets you.” I asked her also what it was that made Ms. Clinton seem so attractive. “She made me feel like she was really interested in what I had to say,” she replied. Could be. Our eyes, experts say, give us away, and for most of us, that is true. But it may also be that some people know, either intellectually or intuitively, how to manipulate others with their eyes. Professional actors and politicians come to mind. So does a quote from Nietzsche, which goes essentially like this: “If
you gaze too long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.” Could that be true? Many years ago a psychologist did an experiment in which he had several men and women pair off and gaze into each other’s eyes for four minutes. Uninterrupted. None of the men and women had known each other beforehand, and their only instructions were to gaze into each other’s eyes as they imagined lovers would. They were not to speak, or smile or do anything other than lock eyes for four solid minutes. Afterward, the psychologist asked the participants how they felt about their experiment partners. Their responses indicated nearly all of them were deeply affected by the experience and came away with very positive feelings about the strangers with whom they had only spent four minutes. One of the couples is believed to have actually gotten married six months later. That experiment, and quite a bit of other research, has led to the theory that just looking at something changes you, and maybe it too. When two people gaze into each other’s eyes, so they say, their gazes enhance, and maybe even initiate, feelings of love. For some people, at least, the expressions on their faces make their way to their hearts. Facial feedback, I think it is called, and the phenomenon seems especially pronounced in people who believe in romantic notions such as “love at first sight” and “one and only love.” Could this be why actors and actresses often fall in love with their co-stars while working on movies together? Another thing that
happens when people gaze at each other is that the pupils of their eyes grow larger. Most people are aware that the pupils of their eyes fluctuate with light conditions, growing larger in dim light and small in brightness, but they also get larger when people are aroused or emotionally charged. And while we are not consciously aware of it, we notice that when we look at others and are affected by the changes. Men subconsciously read the pupils in a woman’s eyes growing larger as a sign she is attracted to him, and this, in turn, causes him to be more attracted to her. In one study men were shown pictures of a woman that were identical except that her eyes had been photo edited in one to make the pupils of her eyes larger than the other one. Without telling a group of men what they had done, they asked, “Which one do you prefer?” Overwhelmingly, the men chose the picture of the woman with the larger pupils in her eyes. None of them knew why they liked it better. For most of us, eye contact occurs naturally, and we never think about it at all. We do, however, react to it, sometimes in a healthy way and sometimes otherwise. The eyes may be, as it is said, the windows of the soul, but not always. Obviously, there really are some who know how to manipulate others with their eyes, and sometimes they do. So be careful out there. The next time you find yourself mesmerized by that set of sparkling baby blue or brown eyes, watch out! Instead of staring into someone’s heart, you may be gazing into the abyss.
The true CO$T of education “Your Education is worth what You are worth.” --Anonymous When it comes to news, it’s probably a safe bet that most have found themselves huddled around their computer or TV screen—a few still read newspapers right? —following the protests in Egypt. And why would it be any other way? As my friend in the Air Force blogged last week, “This is history in progress folks.” Even I would have to agree with him, despite whatever bias that statement may contain from the former history major. Yet whenever our attentive ears and eyes focus on one matter or incident, others may go under the radar. I wonder if anyone has been keeping up with Kelley Williams-Bolar, an Ohio area woman who was jailed after pulling her 12- and 16-year old daughters out of a bad school and enrolling them in a better school, located in a suburban district where her father lived. The Copely-Fairlawn School District, the district the suburban school is located in, actually hired a private investigator to follow and videotape Williams-Bolar. When they found out that WilliamsBolar would drop off her kids to the school from her public housing, they decided to order her to pay $30,000, saying that

she didn’t have the right to have her daughters in the district since she didn’t pay their taxes. Williams-Bolar refused and she was hit with two felony charges and sentenced to 10 days in prison. Two felony charges? Isn’t that excessive? I’m disappointed that the courts treated this like another “open and shut case.” It’s much more complex than that. When you break it down, really, WilliamsBolar was just trying to provide a better education for her children. This isn’t some attempt at some sob story. That’s just a fact. So when did it become a crime to provide a better education to one’s child? I’m not a parent, but I would ask anyone that is, to put themselves in Williams-Bolar’s shoes and ask them wouldn’t they do the same thing. What’s really funny about this case is that while the school district said that Williams-Bolar isn’t the only person that’s tried this, she’s the only person that has been charged. So what was the purpose in singling Williams-Bolar out? Why make her the example? And while I do believe that race was indeed a factor in this case—you can easily do the math on a black woman from public housing against a predominately white suburban neighborhood— I’ll spare that point for now and will instead point at another glaring issue:
our unbalanced education system. Ever since my days in high school, my ears have heard nothing but arguments from parents about “better education”; “ what about the children?”; and “our schools need improvement.” Ten plus years later, these are still arguments I hear today. So this tells me a few things. For one, nationally, our school system is still highly unbalanced and there is a high volume of students who don’t have the same opportunities as others. And two, while there has been constant talk from the powers that be that improvement is important and being provided, little has actually been done. I’m not saying that there haven’t been any improvements at all, but if, in 2011, you’ve still got a case of a parent that has to initially lie to grant her children a better education, then something is still drastically wrong. In case you haven’t heard, Williams-Bolar is out of jail now, having already served her sentence. But those felony charges on her record will pretty much prevent her from becoming a teacher, which is something she was working on before this fiasco. I don’t know if that makes the whole situation slightly ironic or just plain sad. Either way, it just makes me sick.

Brownsville 1906: Two Millinery establishments were entirely destroyed; owned by Mrs. W. H. Moody and Mrs. Lula Payne. The third building occupied by Ben F. Clark and Company was totally wrecked. The flames reached the Central Hotel. The ground floor of this building, occupied by S.A. Baynes, merchant, H.V. Berson Jeweler and Mrs. Johnsonâ€™s boarding house, all of which sustained damage, as did many persons who occupied rooms on the second floor of the building owned by C.J. Dodson of Humboldt. The fire was first discovered on the second floor and rear of the house occupied by Mrs. Moody - â€œI, together with my mother and my two children lived over the store. About 3 a.m., I awoke grasping for breath; my little son was crying for water, saying he was choking. I discovered the house was full of smoke. I raised the window in the rear end of the house to obtain air. The stifling smoke came in worse than ever. It was not the smoke from burning wood, but more
like fumes of burning hair or feathers. I hastened to the front, and raising a window and called for help. Three colored men came quickly followed by Messrs. Hugh Glass, Henry Dupree, Jack Ezelle and others. In the meantime, I re-entered the house and with my mother and the others descended to the store, thence out upon the street in our night robes. Still no fire in sight, but we observed in coming down the stairs that the wall of the house was hot. Mr. Ezelle and others endeavored to reach my apartments to have my trunks but their lights were extinguished and the smoke above them, they came down again. A few minutes later there was a sound like an explosion and the flames burst out, enveloping the rear and the upper part of the building. We escaped only with our lives, all else, even my books, papers and about $45 in cash was lost.â€? A few incidents we deem worthy of special mention: These young gentlemen who ascended through smoke, heat and darkness, to Mrs. Moodyâ€™s apartments,
Mr. Payneâ€™s rescue of Mrs. Wilkes, at great hazard of his own life, and Miss Edna Trice, who is Mrs. Payneâ€™s niece, maintained the calm demeanor of a true heroine â€“ thus saving books, papers and other articles that otherwise would have been lost. The fate of â€œOld Dan,â€? the bird dog, was, indeed, pathetic. Leaving his sleeping quarters in the basement, he ascended the stairways and aroused the sleepers by barking and pulling off the bed covers. There he stayed to the last, seemingly trying to help those who were endeavoring to save some of Mrs. Payneâ€™s household effects. Casablanca-like, he continued to â€œstand on the burning deck whence all but him had fled,â€? and would not be called down. He perished in the flames. His young master, Ed Trice, is deeply grieved.

(Brownsville, Tenn.) February 3, 2011
News of Years Gone By Friday, February 6, 1981 Fuel Plant confirmed by outgoing official “I am pleased that your project is one that has been selected for participation in developing the synthetic fuels industry,” so wrote Charles W. Duncan Jr. secretary of the Dept. of Energy, prior to leaving his job, which is being phased out by the new administration. Mayor Joe Taylor received this information in a letter, which referred to the city’s application for a grant to build a fluidized bed gasification plant, which would dispose of city-county wastes. This letter confirmed a recent message from Rep. Ed Jones and Sen. Jim Sasser that $288,436 had been authorized for a study for construction of the plant. Mayor Taylor feels that even though the administration has changed, this letter confirmed the fact that money had been allocated for the local project.
Kindness of Officials results in nice letter of appreciation A week or so ago, a young man was picked up by city police. He was in an old model auto, with Louisiana license tags, and looked down and out. After questioning by city officers, it was revealed that the young man was 15 years old and had run away from home.
He said that he had made bad grades in school and his mother had given him a hard time. As a result, he decided to leave home in the old car that was his, but on which his father had signed the note. He was hungry and Mrs. Opal Bull, one of the operators on the city radio system, saw that he was fed. Chief Jerry Wyatt discovered that he had pawned his spare tire for $2 to get some gasoline and tried to find the station to get his tire back. Mayor Joe Taylor and the city hall people were all nice to him and notified his parents who promptly came to get him.
Haywood Library popular as 5,000 books are read Haywood Countians circulated 4,955 books in 1979-80 and are off to a good start for 1980-81, according to reports from the Forked Deer Regional Library. Librarian Shirley Turner said that 1,788 books were donated for juveniles making a total of 6,743 books circulated in this county 79-80.
Thursday February 7, 1991 Radio fund-raiser brings child’s hope for life closer The Haywood County community showered hope Monday morning during a four-hour cal-
in show on Brownsville Radio all over a 5-yearold Brownsville girl who needs a lung transplant, raising over $11,000 toward a $90,000 community goal. Megan Clark’s fight against life threatening pulimonary hypertension has captivated the county since doctors at Le Bonheur Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis pronounced her terminal last fall. The on-air radio show, a specialty of WBHTWTBG radio stations, featured morning talk show host Paul Jackson who interviewed a variety of people familiar with Megan’s case. As money started to pour into the station, faster than staff members could count it, Jackson commented that the generosity was not a surprise.
HHS fifth in Regional Academic Decathlon The Haywood High School battlefield was littered with computer results and the blood, sweat and tears of 20 competing scholastic teams Saturday night when the West Tennessee Regional Academic Decathlon ended. In its sixth year of academic competition, HHS pulled out a fifth place win to secure a berth in the state competition March 1-2 at Austin Peay University. The top finishers were three Jackson, Tennessee, schools—first place winner Jackson Christian School, second place
Jackson Central-Merry High School, and third Jackson Northside High School. White Station High School in Memphis slipped in just ahead of Haywood. The top seven teams will compete in Clarksville against a total of 20 schools during the state decathlon.
Haywood County Democratic Party elects New Election Commissioner The Haywood County Democratic Party quarterly meeting was held at the Brownsville City Hall January 31. Chairman Williams King presided. The business meeting included a call for minutes, treasury report, old business and new business. Election of a Democrat to fill a vacancy on the Haywood County Election Commission was the major activity of the evening. Final tally of the ballots showed Cynthia
B. White as the choice to fill the Haywood County Election Commission position left vacant by the death of Bland Boyd. Thursday, February
8, 2001 Allen King named Progressive Farmer’s Man of the Year Fourth-generation Haywood County farmer, Allen G. King, is the Progressive Farmer’s 2001 Man of the Year in Service to Tennessee Agriculture for his work in boll weevil eradication. King, chairman of the Tennessee Boll Weevil Eradication Foundation, has worked for several years to bring the program to West Tennessee. In August 1999, portions of West Tennessee, including part of Haywood County, entered the program, and in the summer of 2000, the entire county launched
a full-scale attack on cotton’s most determined predator.

New Dietary Guidelines Aim to Improve Food Choices and Prevent Diseases The USDA and the Department of Health and Human Services recently released the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. This is a collection of the federal government’s advice on improving health, reducing the risk of chronic disease, and lowering the obesity rate in this country. Because more than one-third of children and more than two-thirds of adults are overweight or obese, stronger emphasis is being placed on reducing calories and increasing activity. The idea behind these guidelines is to give consumers information to make smart choices about what foods they choose to eat- then to enjoy reasonable portion sizes. Foods such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and fat-free dairy products should be eaten in place of foods containing high amounts of sodium, saturated and trans fats, and added sugars. Physical activity is also encouraged to burn excess calories and fight lifestyle-related diseases. There are 23 key recommendations for the general public and six additional recommendations that apply to specific groups of people, such as pregnant women. In the coming months, a next generation Food Pyramid is expected to
be unveiled. According to the USDA’s Jan. 31 press release on this issue, here is a preview of some of the tips that will be provided to help Americans incorporate the Dietary Guidelines into daily living Enjoy your food, but eat less of it. Avoid large portions of food. Fill half of your plate with fruits and vegetables. Use skim milk or 1% milk. Compare sodium amounts in canned foods, frozen meals, and breadsthen choose the foods with lower amounts. Choose water over sugary drinks. In Haywood County, Extension offers a variety of programs that reinforce the Dietary Guidelines and give consumers an opportunity to learn about healthier living. Sharon Sparks, Program Assistant for the Tennessee Nutrition and Consumer Education Program (TNCEP), makes hands-on nutrition education available for students in all Haywood County Schools and for adults who are eligible for or receiving SNAP benefits (formerly known as Food Stamps). Becky Campbell, Community Health Educator for the Delta Health Initiative through Le Bonheur, partners with 4-H to teach a fourth-grade
The Elma Ross Public Library would like to thank Fire Chief Mark Foster for sending the two lovely gentlemen (so sorry that I do not have your names) for the Lunch & Learn program last week. Unfortunately due to the weather, it was decided that the program would be postponed. We hope to have it rescheduled for February very soon. The Friends of the Library Annual Membership Meeting is coming up quickly. The meeting is set for Tuesday, Feb. 15 at 6 p.m. Our guest speaker will be Mr. O’Neal Henley, author of “Autumn Miracle.” We are looking forward to having Mr. Henley with us for this evening.

We are getting more tax forms in every few days. We are putting them out as soon as we get them. Please be patient, all we can do is wait for the IRS to send us the forms.

Anderson students enjoy 100-Day Celebration Kindergarten students at Anderson had lots of fun celebrating the 100th day of school! They counted to 100, probably 100 times, as well as played games, put on tattoos, jumped in jumpers and enjoyed a lot more activities. Many of them ate 100 things, like pieces of cereal. Reading and language lessons were centered around 100 Day words and activities. What a fun day! What a fun way to learn!

HE students receive awards for third six weeks During the first-grade third six weeks awards program at Haywood Elementary, students were recognized for Perfect Attendance. One lucky first grader’s name was chosen; he received a bicycle from the Rotary Club, and the Brownsville City Police Department donated a helmet. Reading Wall of Fame students were recognized as well with the class award going to Mrs. Valerie Sceal’s class. Mrs. Sceal’s class also received the Fitness Award for the six weeks.
Parents and students enjoyed a “meet and greet” in the Family
Resource Center with Assistant Principal Edith Giles-Williams.
Haywood Elementary students celebrate 100 Days at school
Haywood Elementary students in Mrs. Pamla Reagan’s class celebrated the 100th day of school on Friday, January 28. Each student created a book of words or a story using 100 words that they could read. Then each student shared his or her book with the class and some even challenged their friends to see if they could read their words. The students were also asked to bring in a bag of 100 items. They weighed the bags to see who had the heaviest one. One student had a bag of 100 suckers, which ended up being the heaviest. Another activity the students participated in was filling a snack bag with 10 different snack items. The students put in 10 oyster crackers, 10 M&M’s, 10 raisins, 10 pretzels, 10 animal crackers, 10 raisins, 10 Kix cereal, 10 cheerios, 10 marshmallows, and 10 cheese crackers. Yummy!! The last activity the students participated in was to draw a self-portrait of what they would imagine themselves to look like at 100 years old and to write about what they would be doing. The students had lots of fun participating in these 100th day of school activities.
HE students welcome new Assistant Principal
Everyone at Haywood Elementary was excited to welcome Ms. Edith GilesWilliams to our school as our new assistant principal. “Miss Edith” jumped right in and presented awards to the children at the third six weeks awards program on January 31. After each of the Academic Award programs, parents were invited to the Family Resource Center to meet Miss Edith and enjoy refreshments and fellowship together.

Bethel - Belle Eagle News
With Marty M Williams
By Betty Scott
Happiness is…a warm puppy and a fluffy kitten to snuggle. Don’t have one? Adopt one! Oh my gosh! I’m just starting to come down from the “high” I was on after doing the Brownsville Homecoming, sponsored by the Arts Council! For those of you who did not attend… mmmmm….mmmmm! You missed it! The talent in this town is outrageous!! There is not enough room in this column to praise all the performers, but I will say this… if your soul was not uplifted while Ms. Lolli Mann was in action at the end of the show, you missed an event! It gave me chill bumps! The Arts Council Board, particularly Betsy Thornton and Jane Simmons outdid themselves this year! If your soul wasn’t smiling when you left Friday night it will never smile! Now that is what I call a “singing!” Videos are available if you want one. Just call the Arts Council 772-4883. You will not regret it! I got a little scoop on Trinity Christian Academy. The musical, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast will be presented and directed by English and theatre instructor George Norvell and TCA Choral Director Hannah Smith, at the Ned in downtown Jackson on March 4-6. I love that production! The cast includes students from kindergarten through 12th grade. Tickets will be available this month! Now residents in Brownsville who have witnessed George Norvell’s “entertaining” side, know that Beauty and the Beast will be absolutely fantastic! Margaret Welch also told me that her son, Ken Welch, is stationed in Ft. Knox, Ky., while doing basic training. My youngest daughter, Jami Beth, received a letter from Ken the other day and was tickled to death. She said Ken was doing well, but he wished he would have had a little more time to spend in Brownsville at Christmas, with his family and friends. We miss him! Nancy Littlejohn surprised her husband, Tommy, with a 70th birthday party a couple of Saturdays ago. It was a “come and go” party and all of their
children, grandchildren, along with Jimmy and Geneva Littlejohn, their daughter and grandkids attended. Several friends around the community also stopped by to wish him well. What an impressive way to celebrate a birthday! Ann and Perry Watson came to town this past Saturday and stopped to visit Kathryn and Ray Dixon. Kathryn called Janice Parker, Mary Jane Dezern, and Mary Ann Shaw for a small Haywood Elementary Teacher Reunion. After a good time catching up on the events of the past year, the group went to Cuz’s for a quick lunch. Perry and Ann live in Franklin and note their son Mark, is in the Republic of Georgia as a missionary. Gene and Risa Campbell were in Destin last week visiting friends, Nick and Sally Prosch, who had rented a condo on the beach for two months. Risa played in bridge tournaments with Nick and Sally while Gene visited his aunt in Panama City. His aunt Pansy Hutchison Wilson grew up in Ripley. They stayed an extra day because of the snowy weather in Brownsville. On a sad note, Jimmy Coulston, a long time resident and business owner of Jimmy’s Tire Service, passed away Tuesday, at his home after a six month illness. He will be missed. Those of us who love the Delta Heritage Center will be ecstatic with this new exhibit that has arrived! It’s called “Bagels and Barbeque: The Jewish Experience in Tennessee.” It is now available for viewing and you will recognize a lot of names and history about our local Jewish community. It is the story of Jewish immigration to Tennessee. Great work, Sonia! The charming Ms. Linda Edmond called me on my cell phone to tell me that she had the finest time at Ronnie and Sherri Richards’ home on Christmas Eve! She said she always has an excellent time when invited to Ronnie and Sherri’s. Ann and Patrick Mann attended a Vanderbilt basketball game last week as the guests of Irene and Ridley Wills of Nashville. Patrick
and Ridley are cousins, and Ridley’s grandfather, who was raised in Brownsville, built the present governor’s residence as his home in 1930. He also gave $100,000 to Haywood County to build and furnish our first hospital in 1930. Haywood County’s 2011 Leadership Class has been preparing for their chosen fundraiser project, which is The Carl Perkins Advocacy Center. Now that is a project that is close to my heart. (Music makes my soul smile and helping the Carl Perkins Advocacy Center makes my heart smile. Music, children, and animals are my weak spots!) The Leadership Haywood County Valentine’s Fundraiser will be selling Chocolate Covered Strawberries!! A half dozen for $15. Available for pickup or delivery on Feb. 14 (Oh! On Valentine’s Day! How romantic!) They’re just $1 extra for local delivery. I have to say what a luscious, scrumptious fundraiser for such a worthy cause! Makes your mouth water, doesn’t it? To order: call Joey Conner 780-0863. I chatted with Ms. Suzie after church today and asked her if she was “OK” with what I had done so far on “our” column and she gave me that Ms. Suzie smile. She said she loved it and was going to send a copy of last week’s paper about the birth of her greatgrandson to her daughter, Flo, who is the mother of Marie, who is the mother of baby Louis Baddour Reed. Got it? Those are some proud people right there! On a short parental note: Our youngest daughter, Jami Beth, who has a college-degree in sociology, yet never used it because she opted for numerous other paths before finally going back to school to be an aesthetician, launched her new career today in Memphis. We are celebrating with dinner at the end of her first day of work. We are overjoyed! As we say in our home-our baby girl has finally taken on a ‘Big Girl’ job! Halleluiah! Amen! Don’t forget! I need SCOOP!!!! Contact me at email@example.com or 780-4111. We are cookin’ and jammin’!
It’s hard to believe that January has passed by so quickly. Our February birthday party will be Feb. 3 at 2 p.m., Thursday. The following patients will be celebrating a birthday in February: Mrs. Helen McDow, Mrs. Edna Garrett, Mrs. Georgia Williamson, Mrs. Georgia Taylor, Mrs. Hattie Thornton, and Mr. Charlie Butler. We would like to thank several people for giving items to our patients: Mrs. Dora Mann for the fresh bananas she gave for our fruit bingo, Mt. Pleasant Methodist Church- Vicki Williams for the birthday
gifts they save to each January birthday honoree, Mrs. Mary Fridley for all the bingo prizes, also, another lady who did not want her name mentioned gave lotion and Kleenex for bingo. We appreciate everyone. Thank you all so much! Thank you volunteers for coming out this past week: Christ Temple ladies, Rev. Charles Bates, First Assembly of God church ladies, Mt. Pleasant Methodist Church, Mrs. Mary Barkens, Bingo ladies, Rejoicing Gospel Quartet. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed Rejoicing Gospel Quartet on Friday. They
haven’t been here since November. We were all glad to have them back with us. I’d like to remind everyone to come and vote on your favorite patient for Valentine King and Queen. The box is set up in the front lobby to cast your ballot. Our special entertainer for our Valentine party is David Smith, “Singing Fireman”. All this special event will take place on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, at 2 p.m. Thought for the week: “The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up.” –Mark Twain
Allen News By Gail Barden Baptist Men’s Day was observed at Allen on Sunday, and everyone enjoyed having Mark Kendrick as the speaker for the morning service. Allen men filled the choir and did a great job under the direction of Mr. Hal Rodgers. I attended church with Andrew, Alicia, and Claire on Sunday, and I enjoyed a wonderful service there as well. Mrs. Mary Jo Frady experienced a tremendous surprise last week when she had an unexpected visit from her son, James Hollingshead, from Texas. Mrs. Mary Jo was planning to call James to wish him a
happy birthday, and before she did so, her phone rang. She answered her phone, and to her delight, it was James and he was standing at her door. The two of them spent some wonderful time together celebrating his birthday and just being together. Nothing is more special to a mother than spending time with her children. My sweet daughterin-law, Leah, lost her grandfather, Mr. Harris DeLoach, last week. Please remember Leah and Tyler, her grandmother, Katherine DeLoach, and the rest of the family. Mr. Harris was
a wonderful Christian man and will be missed. Mr. Billy Kirby had heart surgery last week. Please remember him and Martha in your prayers. Others on our prayer list are Jerry Baggett, Mabel Williams, Emily Dickinson, Carolyn White, Gale Watson, Bobby Hooper, Martha Crutcher, Jimmy and Carolyn Danley, and Steve White. Our Bible verse for this week is 1 Corinthians 13: 13, which states, “And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” Have a blessed week.
While I was looking for a certain recipe on the computer, I ran across the recipe for snow cream. Snow cream and homemade biscuits were two recipes that I thought were long gone, but I guess somebody thought we needed now. My mother always said to never use the first snow because it was dirty. That may not be true. It is tax time so there will be more money in circulation. Stores were really busy last Friday night. Betty Scott and Diane Williams met Sonny and Sandi Bishop, Al and Nancy Dean, Brenda Fox, and Naomi Benard at Cuz’s, and later attended “The Brownsville Homecoming
IV” at College Hill. It is great to have friends and we had such a good time together. Bryant and Tracy Nichols joined Zion United Methodist Church last Sunday. Zion’s attendance, like most small churches, has been low, so this is great news! We passed a church today that had a FOR SALE sign in front. Wouldn’t that be a disgrace to our community? Andrew and Jesse Scott and Savanna Coulston spent the weekend with Ricky and Betty Scott. Everyone enjoyed the warmer weather. My crazy neighbor was even out cutting his yard! Funeral services were held last week for Jimmy
Coulston, and we extend our sympathy to his family. Frank Matlock decided against radiation treatments, and Terri Knight’s doctor told her to return in two months. The spots on her lung were not big enough and they want to keep an eye on her. Libby Kendrick continues her chemo at the West Clinic in Memphis. Michael Climer is slowly improving. He is still in rehab. Maggie Anne Herron went back to the doctor this week for a recheck on her ankle injury. She is still on crutches. Thought for the week: A true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.
Hillville - Eurekaton News By Vicki Williams “We can be set free from our past when we place our future in God’s hands.” This is our Thought for the Week as published in the Upper Room Devotional by John Eyherg of Oklahoma. Everybody has a past, which is not free of sin, but because we confess Jesus as our Lord and Saviour, we are forgiven of this. The redemption, which He brought by His life, death, and resurrection was for every one of us and for all time. Holding on to memories of a troubled or sinful past can be transformed by Jesus into light for the present and hope for the future. The memories of our past cause us to cherish even more the reality that Jesus has redeemed our present and our future. Though we cannot see the future, we know He will be there with us. On Sunday, Jan. 23, my daughter Krystle and I visited with the residents at Crestview on behalf of Mt. Pleasant Church. We distributed birthday gifts to the residents who had birthdays in January. It is always such a blessing to
visit with these residents. If you have any free time and need something to do, just stop by Crestview and say “Hi” to the residents. On Friday, Jan. 28, some of the Mt. Pleasant Do-MeGood Travelers attended the Brownsville Homecoming at College Hill. As always, this was a very uplifting program and there was lots of great talent. Those who attended were Lillie Goodman, Sherry Allen, Sue Goodman, Bernice Benard, Barbara Hayes, and I. Following the program we enjoyed dinner and great fellowship at the Huddle House. Others from the community in attendance were Linda Jo Edmonds, Brenda Fox, and Joel and Martha Laney. On Sunday, Feb. 13, there will be a Make a Valentine Party and Breakfast for the children at Mt. Pleasant in the Fellowship Hall at 9:30 a.m. The Mt. Pleasant Children and Youth are sponsoring a “Let Mt. Pleasant Call You Sweetheart Banquet” on Sunday, Feb. 13, at 4 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. Happy Birthday wishes this week to: Roger Cowan,
Renee Campbell, and Earbie Williams. I have a very special birthday wish to my sweet niece Hayley Roten who will turn eight on Feb. 4. I have a special prayer request for my Uncle Jimmy and Aunt Nancy Swain of Somerville. Uncle Jimmy was admitted to Methodist North in Memphis last week. Please continue to pray for my Uncle Prentice Elrod, Scott Elrod, Syble Bushart, Charlene Horton, Norman Kelly, Rex Norville, Dustin Milton, Helen Hayes, Sandra Goodman, Herbert Hayes, Leah Scallions, Mary Scallions, Enid Powell, Kate Jordan, Darlene Rossen, Fletcher Lewis, Dorothy Bruce, Earline Benard, Shirley Morgan, Carol and Jordan Bruce, the military, the nation, and the community. Sympathy to the families of Rev. Jerry Wilson, Ms. Peggy Daniels and Mr. Jimmy Coulston in the loss of their loved ones. 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 Rev. Frank Kemper, one of Holly Grove’s favorite sons, delivered the messages last Sunday morning and night in the absence of our pastor, Brother Fred Campbell, who was ill. The ladies trio consisting of Kathy McClinton and Kathy and Katie Hopper sang the special music. Danny and Brenda Simpson invited Brother Kemper out for lunch following the services. “Living the Christian Life” was the subject of the morning message. We must keep in mind that God will bring everything under His judgment, and everyone will face a righteous God. The Apostle Paul’s main focus was to live for Christ and honor and please Him. Attending church, as important as that is to our spiritual growth, is not all there is to living for Christ. There are some things the believer should nail down with the knowledge that we will give an account. The conclusion of the matter is to fear the Lord and keep His commandments for that is the duty of each believer. Happy birthday to: Caffey Sullivan, Bobby Perry, and
Samantha Snipes. Happy 53rd wedding anniversary to Jerry and Ruth Taylor. Dewey and Martha Jones were married 53 years ago the day after Jerry and Ruth’s wedding. Congratulations to Reeves Garrett, a junior at HHS, for becoming a member of the 30 –plus club. That is quite an honor. Reeves was also among the winners of the HHS Tennessee Regional Academic Decathlon. We express our deepest sympathy for Jimmy Welch at Wellwood for losing his home to fire. I have heard people say that to have your home destroyed is near to experiencing a death in the family. Brother Fred Campbell is having a difficult time. Elaine Brown came through surgery but still needs our prayers. Continue to remember these along with Mae Simpson, Elsie Lewis, Betty Jean Outlaw, Carolyn Watridge, and Casey Lipford. Also include Ann Faulkner, Danny Simpson, Fletcher Lewis, Ray and Janie Hight, Jessie White, Albertine McBride, Jane Carr, and Carolyn Covington. On Saturday night, Feb.
5, is Friend’s Valentine Banquet at the Family Life Center. Please sign up if you wish to attend. There will be a delicious meal along with entertainment. Our heartfelt sympathy is extended to Greg and Beth Baker in the premature loss of a little son. As sad as that is for them, their little son didn’t have to experience the pain and hardships of this life, but went right to heaven where he will be awaiting their coming. Ricky and Kathy Hopper met their daughter Katie Hopper, a student at Bethel University, at a Jackson restaurant one afternoon last week to celebrate her birthday. One of the last landmarks at Holly Grove Community is gone. The Christmas home that burned several years ago was completely removed, along with the garage and other buildings, and all the trees, except the barn that sat back at a distance. It was a Sears and Robuck house. The gin, across the road, burned a good many years ago, and the store was torn down. It doesn’t look like the same place.

Wellwood/Zion News By Denise Phillips
Wow! What a week! God is good all the time, and I don’t know what I would do without His grace! I didn’t get to attend Church at Zion Sunday morning and I’m sure I missed a blessing. Thanks to Rad Ellington for taking care of my youth class. However, Sunday night listening to “His Voice” (a gospel singing group) following our adult Bible study in Nehemiah, was great. Even the Bible drillers came in to hear the music. Keep up the fantastic job Mitch. We appreciate the work you do, and I’m still enjoying the group while listening to the CD that I purchased. My sister Norma and I traveled to Jackson Wednesday night to visit with a cousin of ours that had a heart procedure done. Please keep Jimmy Joe Elrod in your prayers. He is only 46 years old, but he has a tough road ahead. Due to the snow and ice last week, the men’s prayer
breakfast did not meet Thursday. Scottie Morris said they will meet this week. We’ll see! Congratulations to Hannah Conway who won “most improved actress” in 2010 during the 24th Annual Theatre Awards Friday night. She was also nominated for best actress and best supporting actress. Her parents Brother Mark and Lisa are very proud of her as well as all of Zion. We enjoyed having the Rainey’s (Billy, Becky, Luke, Ethan, Micah, and Lyla Grace) come for a brief visit this weekend. They came down after the basketball games Saturday and returned home Sunday afternoon. Now, you know why I did not make it to Church Sunday morning. We had lots of company stopping by to visit, including our sons and their families, Tommy and Judy Elrod, Timothy Potter and his fiancée Bethany, Norma Austin with grandchildren Hayleigh and Trent, and mama.
Jason and Justin came back Sunday afternoon and helped finish our other bedroom. Lillie and Jacob Phillips wanted to play one last time with the Rainey kids before leaving and Alivia just wanted to see her Nana. A loving family is such a blessing! Happy birthday wishes to: Vickie Garner, Steve Brown, Vicky Fawcett, and Elizabeth Lovelace. Hope all of you enjoyed your special day. Zion’s youth group will meet at Kenneth and Lavelle McBride’s home for a Super Bowl party Sunday night. Feb. 12 is the date set for Zion’s Valentine’s Banquet. April 3-6 will be Spring Revival. Begin to pray for Evangelist Wade Adkins as he leads. Pray for those who are sick, our military personnel and their families, the shutins, those who have lost loved ones, and the leaders of our country. Call me at 772-4257 if you have news. People want to know!
By Sylessie Ross I want to wish Earl Clark and Shirley Morgan happy birthday! Nancy Pender continued her birthday celebration with her family Sunday after church at TGI Fridays. Tony Morgan celebrated last Friday hosting friends and family in his home also! Willie and I visited my neighbor Gennetta Transor and Emma “Doll” Pender. We had prayer and a wonderful visit. Her sister Doll is taking such good care of her. Rosie Lee Gray was visiting as well. The Male chorus reunion was dynamic this past Sunday night. We really miss having James “Jenny B” Bond, L.C. Pirtle, and Billy Jackson, who have all been so faithful until their health would not allow them to attend on a regular basis. My pastor, Julius Harden, delivered such a beautiful message this past Sunday and we had so many visitors. My Godson, Greg Hill, and his son, Peyton, visited Willie and me Monday. We had delightful time and really enjoyed
them. Remember in prayer; Jerry Clark, Molly Walker, Cora Ross, Betty Ross, James “Jenny B” Bond, Marvin Ross, Genetta Transor, Walter Frank Chism, Martha Mae Hurt, Pearline “Teen” Jones, Stacy Greer, Minister J.V. Carney, Minister J.H Fuller, Steve White, Mr. and Mrs. Jessie White, Cynthia Bullock Transor, Glenn White, and Fannie Anderson. Thought For The Week: “Pressing on with Precision and Purpose” Hebrews 12:1-2 is a word for those of us who find ourselves in a struggle day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year. God would have us to know that we should not be struggling just to be struggling. We should no longer go into each day with the mindset this is another day of struggle, stress, and strife. As children of God we should be able to find some joy, some peace, some happiness in the midst of any given situation or circumstance. As children of God, we should not be constantly
flailing around in the winds of worry, or caught up in the sinking sands of sorrow. This is not the life of those who lean not to their own understanding, but trust in God with their whole heart. The life to which we have been called is not one without challenges, but it is one where regardless of what might come our way the joy of the Lord is our strength. While we’re pressing on with precision and purpose, what people do to us is inconsequential. People are not our focus and this life is not our goal, but a life of Godliness. So we run this race with patience, We fight the good fight of faith. With precision we stay the course. With purpose we turn our eyes toward Jesus. When the race gets you down, press on. When your hopes are handcuffed and your dreams are deferred, press on. When the headwinds of life slow you down, press on. When life is filled with delay, disruption, and disappointment, press on. Press past the mess and stroll through the stress.
Retirement Center News
By Shirley Tucker, Activity Director We want to thank Pastor Phillip Cook from the First United Methodist Church of Brownsville for coming and bringing our message this past Sunday. His members out here really appreciate him coming, as do our other residents who don’t get out for church. We worked on some trivia this week. This is our exercise for our brains. We do exercise for our bodies three times a week, so we try to do some for our brains at least once a week. We learn a lot of things we forgot, or should I say we remember a lot of things we forgot. You ought to come out and join us, see if you can give us some help. One of our questions was “What dictator is associated with the Night of the Long Knives?” Alystine Hare knew the most answers. She is either one of the smartest ones out here or she reads a lot. Maybe BOTH! A couple of our other questions were “Who was involved in the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral?” and “Who Was Marion Morrison?” No fair asking your husbands, ladies. Hilda Grubbs had some fun company this week when her son, Bill, and daughter-in-law, Diane came to see her from Hickory Withe. They brought their two grandchildren with
them, which was a treat for great-grandmother, Hilda. The granddaughter’s name was Anna Kilpatrick and she was 9 years old and had a broken arm. I, of course, asked how she broke her arm to which she replied, “Cheerleading.” I said I didn’t know cheerleading was such a dangerous sport. She informed me some of the others threw her up in the air, and didn’t catch her as she came down. When she hit the concrete, as they say, the rest was history. Luckily her brother, Cole Kilpatrick, also 9, doesn’t do cheerleading so he was in one piece. She could probably learn a thing or two from Cole (like don’t let anyone throw you up in the air). We were so sad when we had to postpone our “Guest Bingo” event due to the snow. We didn’t cancel it, however, we just moved it to Feb. 10. We’ll look forward to seeing you then. Our residents get to invite folks so if they don’t call you, you call them and let them know you’d like to come play bingo. We’ll have lots of good prizes and refreshments too. Laura Richards had guests for lunch this week. One day Ronnie and Lynn came and took her out to lunch and then Ronnie and Dorothy Estes came to Sugar
Creek to have lunch with her. She’s a busy lady. Arline Boisvert, Jottye Newman, and I played UNO one day. Jottye knew how to play more than she let us know she did and beat us both. The next day I played checkers with Harold Nelson and he beat me at that. I’ve got to practice up on these games so I don’t look so dumb! Next thing I’m going to have is a “chocolate tasting” and I’m excellent at that!

By Debbie Sterbinsky We made it through January, but I’m still trying to work on cemeteries. This is a very busy time of the year for me, and the weather is not cooperating in my favor. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE SNOW, but it’s hard to find graves with snow on them! Today is the birthday of my youngest son, who turns 33 today. Happy Birthday Shawn! February is also Black History month, and I ran across some trivia and facts online you might find interesting: Several people know Black History month originated in 1926 by Carter Godwin Woodson. The month of February was chosen in honor of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln, who were both born in that month. But did you know “Kwanzaa” means “first fruits” in Swahili? Kwanzaa was created as the AfricanAmerica holiday in 1966 by Dr. Maulana Karenga, and is observed from Dec. 26 to Jan. 1 each year. Otis Boykin invented electronic control devices for guided missiles, IBM
computers, and the control unit for a pacemaker. George Carruthers invented the far ultraviolet electrographic camera, used in the 1972 Apollo 16 mission. This invention revealed new features in Earth’s far-outer atmosphere and deepspace objects from the perspective of the lunar surface. Carruthers was inducted into the National Inventor’s Hall of Fame in 2003. The first major black super-hero, the Black Panther, made his debut in Fantastic Four No. 52 in July of 1966. African-American mechanical engineer, David Crosthwait Jr. created the heating systems for the Rockefeller Center and New York’s Radio City Music Hall. Also, Charles R. Drew, as surgeon, if often credited with the invention of the first large-scale blood bank. In 1899, golf fan Dr. George Franklin Grant received a patent for the world’s first golf tee. Grant, however, never marketed his invention, instead giving the tees away to
friends and fellow golfers. Lonnie G. Johnson, an engineer who performed spacecraft system design for NASA invented the Super Soaker water gunthe number one selling toy in America in 1991. Frederick Jones held over 60 patents with most of them pertaining to refrigeration. His portable air conditioner was used in World War II to preserve medicine and blood serum. Garrett Augustus Morgan invented, among other things, a three-way automatic stop sign, which he sold to General Electric. It was used in the U.S. until the three-light traffic sign was developed. More facts and trivia will follow next week! 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.
Westside News By Mary W. Lewis Those from Westside Church of Christ attending our area-wide fifth Sunday singing held at Beech Grove Church of Christ on Marvin Chapel Rd. where Larry Sweeney, Mac Perry, Zachary Fox, Nell Fox, and Paul and Mary Lewis. The Children’s Home pick up will be by on April 5 or 6 for items we’ll need to furnish and to collect the “spare change cans” individuals will have filled for the home. The long-time Freed Hardeman University lectureship series begins Sunday, Feb. 6, in Henderson lasting through Friday, Feb. 11. Besides the spiritual benefits, local businesses in Jackson, Henderson, and several other towns will profit, especially hotels, motels, and restaurants while speakers, many bringing families with them for the week. Many are alumni of FHU. This year’s theme is on the “Minor Prophets of the Bible.” Minor, not because of importance, but because this category wrote less, therefore this distinction is given them. These are among others to remember in prayer: Sheree Taylor, niece of Martha Taylor, Mrs. Mae Mathis in Haywood Park, Sylvia Thomason Hart of Bells who was in a Jackson Hospital, Emily Sweeney who enters West Clinic in Memphis Tuesday, Pat and Ruth Glidewell (Pat had a procedure done in Memphis last week because of his dialysis), Joe Moody our around
the corner neighbor who had surgery and is the husband of Betty Rice Moody, Tommy McCool needs our prayers also. Carolyn Freeman is not well at the time. Our Minnie Bell King from Crestview was with us Sunday. Remember Dianne Hart and Leonard Pierce they’re also as well as Marie Browning and Bertha Reed, Jefferson St members. Also remember Jean Black at Sugar Creek. We miss all of you and everyone who is not able to be present in worship with us. Remember Bob Bond, who was in an accident with a fatality. Our hearts go out to the family of the man who lost his life, and to Bob, a kind and most caring human. Pat Rabbit, the brotherin-law of Jane Powell, has passed away. He was the widower of Edwina Jones, sister of Jane. He lived in Georgia, I believe. Also Jane’s youngest, John N. (Chuck) Powell of Jackson, received a good report on his knee surgery and his pacemaker in Vanderbilt. Shirley Cook of Covington was here with sister Diane Lee, Sunday. After visiting a Ripley High School classmate on Thursday, Betty Walker Shelton, it was comforting to know she is doing the best she can following the loss of husband C.L. Shelton, Dec. 27, some time after a heart attack. They would have celebrated 56 years Feb. 6. Lora Shelton, niece of C.L. and daughter of Floyd Shelton sang a
solo on the Homecoming presentation sponsored by Haywood Arts Council Friday evening at Ann Marks Center at College Hill. Lynn Jackson, whose birthday was Saturday, visited his parents Albert and Ann Jackson and worshipped with them and enjoyed the fifth Sunday fellowship meal. There was another birthday celebration this week in Lexington, when Mrs. Giula Flanaagan had hers when she became a young 94 years old. Daughter Bobbie, and husband, Billy Connally, were with her Sunday and worshipped with her at Juno Church of Christ. Enroute from Lexington to home, the Connally met grandson Justin Connally, at one of the I-40 exits, as he returned from Carlisle, Ark., where he had been duck hunting where relatives run a hunting camp. They yielded 94 ducks, but it is protocol in the area to furnish a large number at a nursing home facility near there. Many of guys become excited about this duck haven. (Not the duck’s haven though!) Martha Taylor has a granddaughter, only an infant in Florida, who needs our prayers. She’s had serious problems since birth last year, and has a tracheotomy in her little throat. Joel Hayes gave us a report last Sunday evening on the Costa Rico mission trip that he and Margaret Ellen Fox went on with others.

Troop 68 holds special meeting
This week we are featuring Mrs. Margaret Ann Fletcher in our Cook’s Nook. She is a gracious, charming hostess who is well known in Brownsville for her cooking talents. After many years, she has retired from catering, but she still cooks up a storm with a group of seven ladies at Union Grove to prepare meals to bless families that are going through illness or mourning, and her love for cooking and her know-how is still shared with the rest of us just for the asking. She started out in the kitchen as a toddler on the hip of the family cook and as she grew up, she cooked for her family the way she had learned by watching, with intuition…a pinch of this, a dash of that, a cup of this, a teaspoon of that. Margaret Ann laughed as she told me how she learned to use recipes as she got older so she could share those favorite dishes with her children. She now has a binder full of delightful cuisine and she graciously shared a few of those treasures with us. We have her granddaughters’ favorite chicken casserole, refrigerator rolls and chess pie…what a marvelous meal! Chicken Casserole by Margaret Ann Fletcher serves 8-10 8 chicken tenders boiled 1 cup sour cream 1 can cream of chicken soup
Troop 68 opened the meeting with a pledge.
1 can crescent rolls ½ stick butter 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese grated Divide crescent rolls into 8 pieces. Mix soup, sour cream, butter and ½ cup grated cheese. Wrap chicken tenders in crescent rolls & place in a 13 x 9 dish sprayed with Pam. Pour above mixture over wrapped chicken breast, sprinkle with the rest of the grated cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Refrigerator Rolls 1 cup boiling water 1 cup shortening 1 scant cup sugar 1 ½ tsp salt 2 eggs beaten ************ 2 packages dry yeast 1 cup lukewarm water (105-115 degrees) **************** 5 ½ to 6 cups unsifted plain flour Pour boiling water shortening, sugar salt.

well, let set 3 minutes, stir and add to the first mixture. Add flour, being careful to leave dough on the soupy side.

Take out, knead, roll out, cut with 2-inch biscuit cutter, put melted butter on one side, fold over like a pocketbook and place in greased pan. Let rise for 3 hours. Bake at 375 degrees until set and lightly brown. Freezes well.

Local Boy Scouts Troop 68 held a special meeting Monday, January 31 at the First United Methodist Church. Parents and friends of the scouts were invited to the meeting, in order to review the accomplishments of the troop, as well as witness numerous scouts receive certain merit badges. The accomplishments of the troop are perhaps impressive. In 2010, the troop got the opportunity to go camping at the St. Jude Trail Ride in Crockett County and volunteer— the event raised $50,000 in three days—and participate in the 100 Year Anniversary of Scouting at Pringles Park in Jackson. This year, the troop is also participating in an exercise that will require them to do kind deeds for others, for example, helping an older lady
across the street. So far, collectively, Troop 68 has managed to do 200 kind deeds. The meeting also featured a few comical skits from the troop and a video reel that showed off what the troop was up to last year. Troop 68 includes: Zachary McFarland, R M English, Grayson
Robinson, Joseph Stephens, Russell Waldon, Weston Stephens, Will Taylor, Eric and Michael Talley, Michael Young, Eli Scifres, Hank Clement, Justin Pocock, Adam Jollo, Keishun Taylor and Malik Green. Scout Leaders are Scoutmaster Harvey Waldon, Bob Scifres and Craig Robinson.
The meeting featured various comical skits.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat eggs slightly. Stir in remaining ingredients. Pour into pie crust. Bake 50 minutes.
Zachary McFarland received an award from Scout Leader Craig Robison. McFarland was one of many scouts that received numerous merit badges and awards for his service.
