Officer run over while trying to make arrest Suspect to be charged with Attempted Murder
By Calvin Carter Staff Writer A 911 call last weekend evolved into an officer in the hospital and a suspect charged with attempted murder. Brownsville Police Department officers arrived at the Skylit Motel, located behind the Exxon Gas station on South Grand Avenue in Brownsville, approximately 12:30 a.m., Sunday January 23 trying to respond to a 911 hang-up call. Upon arrival, officers made contact with an Undra Hal Douglas, 38, as he exited one of the rooms. It’s unclear at this time, if the 911 hang-up call was in any way related to Douglas. A u t h o r i t i e s reported that Douglas refused to comply with commands for him to stop and show them his driver’s license. Shortly after, he jumped into his
car. Douglas threw the car in reverse, backing over patrol officer Matthew Carson as he fled from police. Carson fired five rounds at Douglas’ vehicle as he sped away from the scene. Douglas drove through the gazebo on the lot of the motel and crashed into the bank on the east side of South Grand Avenue. Douglas fled the scene on foot, and though officers pursued, he escaped. Monday morning, January 24, at approximately 8:10 a.m., Douglas was taken into custody at his residence, located at 1177 Westmoreland in Brownsville. Authorities said that information from confidential informants led to the arrest. Douglas was taken into custody without incident, and transported to the Haywood County Jail, where he is being held without

on parole for drugrelated charges. Officer Carson was transported to Jackson-Madison County General Hospital, where he underwent surgery on Sunday afternoon on his broken foot. He is currently recovering from injuries suffered in the incident.
Outside help:Mennonite Disaster Services offer help to Haywood County By Calvin Carter Staff Writer Much time has passed since the surprise flood that hit much of west and middle Tennessee last May. Yet for some residents, its effects are still felt. Homes and lives left damaged by the flood are still on the long road to recovery. This doesn’t mean that people have ignored the cries for help and support. Hope For Haywood County, partnered with the Haywood Community Development Corporation has worked hard on rebuilding the homes and, perhaps, lives of many residents still recovering from the “100-year flood.” Last week, the organizations had some outside help from some volunteers from Pennsylvania. If you aren’t familiar with Mennonite Disaster Services, you may have had the chance to learn about them last week. The non-profit organization began many years ago, first known as the Mennonite Service Organization. According to the team leader of MDS group in Brownsville last week, Lem Metzler, the organization is approximately 80 years old and will be celebrating
its 75th anniversary this year. The organization started when volunteers decided to help out after a series of tornadoes in Oklahoma during the 1950s. “Basically, a group of people decided to join forces, get out and clean up,” Metzler said. “From there it’s been growing.” Although Metzler noted that his MDS group has enjoyed the kind hospitality provided from Haywood County, he did admit that they really haven’t had a chance to fully relax and explore the area. The group has had their noses to the grindstone. “Oh yeah, we’re here to work,” Metzler said. Still the group may get another chance to explore Haywood County, if Hope For Haywood County Volunteer Construction Coordinator Tim Gajewski has anything to say about it. “This here is probably the first of many trips they’ll make,” Gajewski said. Considering the homes left to work on, perhaps
that makes sense. Currently, focus has been placed on five of a total nine homes with immediate need. The homes of Anne Hess and Lois Rogers—both Rickey Street residents— have been worked on and returned to their owners. MDS found itself doing inside work on the home of Sandra Chapman. Gajewski anticipated being
finished with the home by Super Bowl weekend. The process of rebuilding the homes is not easy. “The houses that we’ve started on, we gutted down to the shell; floors, studs, everything, ” Gajewski said. “Basically it’s a brand new house on the inside with used brick.” Bringing the wiring
and plumbing as close to building code has presented itself as a challenge Gajewski added. But with outside help like MDS, and countless effort from the city and county, positive progress has resulted. And positive progress will continue. “There are people still trying to get help everyday. It may take a
while, but we will get to them,” Gajewski said. “It will take a while, but I want people to know that we’re not forgetting about them.” If you would like to donate to Hope for Haywood, just make your contributions to Hope for Haywood in care of Allan Callery, Insouth Bank. This is a tax-deductible contribution.

Fire destroys Welch home
Investigation of wildlife sanctuary fire still ongoing; No suspect revealed By Calvin Carter Staff Writer
See weather on page B8
See recipe on page A5 The Brownsville Haywood County Fire Department responded to a structure fire call Saturday, January 22 at approximately 5 p.m. The fire took place at the residence of Jimmy Welch, located at 880 Hawkins Lane. Authorities reported the structure fire as a complete loss, including vehicles left in the garage. See aditional photos on A3 Photo By Kim Tinsley
Tragedy befell the A.R.K. Rain Wildlife Sanctuary, located at 1771 Coburn Road, late November as a fire broke out. Although authorities rushed to the scene, and homeowners Tim and Toni Davies were able to escape harm, the fire completely decimated the structure and took the lives of 56 animals. Now that months have passed since the incident, the organization finds itself still without any answers and diminished support. Initially, members of A.R.K. expressed
belief that cause of the fire stemmed from an act of arson. The fact that authorities are investigating that as a cause should suggest that their belief is valid. The Tennessee Bomb and Arson Division is currently investigating the incident along with local authorities. However, the only information revealed so far is that authorities are currently questioning residents in the neighborhood. Authorities have not revealed information concerning any possible suspects or arrests. It’s the lack of answers from the investigation that have left members See fire page A3

Hibbett Sports still set for Brownsville Weeks ago, it was announced that Hibbett Sports would be opening at the former Movie Gallery located at 302-304 South Main Street in Brownsville this spring. In July 2009, The Shopping Center Group, LLC was commissioned by Haywood County Mayor Franklin Smith and Brownsville Mayor Webb Banks under the care of Richard Carraway to conduct a retail marketing study. Carraway, Retail Development Director for the BrownsvilleHaywood County Chamber of Commerce, worked closely with The Shopping Center Group, LLC (TSCG) and the West Tennessee Retail Alliance (WTRA) to complete the project. The study has been used for research, marketing and recruitment of new retail businesses. Listing broker, Shawn Massey, used the study in the real estate transaction of Hibbett Sports locating
in the former Movie Gallery location. Shawn Massey, TSCG— Memphis brokered the 4,000 square feet, five-year lease. Massey represented the landlord, KP Properties, LLC of Phoenix, AZ. “Rural markets have a great challenge recruiting new national and regional retail concepts in this economy. It is important to know who you are and how best to market your assets in the retail real estate industry, which is exactly what Carraway has successfully done. His efforts working with Shawn Massey and me will improve the local economy and the quality of life for Brownsville citizens,” Lacy Beasley of TSCG said. Hibbett Sports net sales in 2010 were up five percent over 2009. “Our successful model over the last 60 years has been anchored by growth in small markets throughout the
Sunbelt…Last year we expanded 20 locations, and expect to expand at least 20 more in the next twelve months,” Mike Newson, Executive Chairman in the Hibbett Sports Annual Report said. “We currently have over one million Hibbett Sports MVP reward members, up from 600,000 this time a year ago. In our search for new loyal customers, we have begun to
Area being hit by trailer thefts Is Brownsville and Haywood County being hit by a series of trailer thefts? According to some residents, that could be the case. Authorities have been keeping busy, trying to solve and arrest those responsible. And some residents are taking matters into their own hands. For example, January 17, at approximately 3:31 a.m., units responded to a call made by Jody Lea, who
was following a truck, which had taken his tilt bed trailer. Authorities said Lea was traveling home and saw the vehicle pulling the trailer and followed it to Carlton Avenue, where he confronted the driver. The driver then sped off and crashed his vehicle in front of 236 North Grand and fled the scene. Covington Police arrested the owner of the vehicle, James W. Russell later that
morning. Russell was identified by Lea and charged with theft of property over $500. Check back with the States-Graphic as more information on the trailer thefts is revealed, as well as what authorities are planning to do to stop the crimes.
expand our presence in the outdoor category by adding The North Face and Columbia to our vendor line-up both apparel and footwear while still growing our presence with Nike and Under Armour,” Newsome added. Hibbett Sports is a retail chain offering an assortment of footwear, apparel and equipment with 767 locations in 24 states.

30, 2010, Hibbett Sports employed 2,100 fulltime and 3,800 part-time employees. An average Hibbett Sports will generate approximately $773,783 in store sales annually.

-of the animal saving sanctuary frustrated and confused. “I just don’t get. I don’t understand why they can’t at least tell us something,” A.R.K. board member Tony Snipes said. U n f o r t u n a t e l y, the fire isn’t the first tragic incident the sanctuary has had to deal with. Both Snipes and Tim could detail past accounts of other disturbances, which range from the cutting of their electric fence to people loudly riding their 4 wheelers near the sanctuary to disturb the animals. In fact, last May, the two recalled a bolt flare that was fired onto the property, which could have set a fire. This is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to these incidents, which have stemmed from a neighbor in the area—though the organization declined to name the individual—who has been into conflictive contact with the organization. With little revealed so far on the investigation, it’s unclear to the
organization whether any of the past incidents have been taken into account. For Tim, it’s unclear as to why anyone would want to cause any trouble or harm to the organization. “We came here for one purpose: to rescue animals,” Tim said. “Rescue animals that have been abused, neglected, illegally brought into the country. We don’t do anything to hurt anybody. We don’t try to hurt anybody. We don’t look for trouble. When we see an animal, we try to help that animal. We don’t try to hurt anybody.” “All we want is the animals to live in peace and for us to live in peace,” he continued. While waiting for any details on the investigation, efforts have still focused on figuring out what to do as far as rebuilding efforts. The only insurance that will be received is for the structure, none of the contents inside that were lost. And that will not be enough to cover even the cost of rebuilding the structure.
ARK continues to seek local support. “The local support has died down,” Tim said. “We’ve had help from a few neighbors here and there. We were very appreciative of the people that came and helped though. They were a blessing.” Residents can still make tax-deductible monetary donations, building materials, tools, and gift cards to Walmart or Lowe’s or experienced c a r p e n t e r s , electricians and plumbers can donate their services. The organization is also looking for animal supplies with big or jumbo animal carriers on the top of that list, blankets, animal food, and big animal water bottles to name a few items. The organization is also seeking any individuals or businesses that would like to help out by starting some type of fundraiser. For more information on how to help, you can visit ARK R.A.I.N. on their Facebook page, go to www.arkrain.org or call 731-780-3678.

A little learning-too little
“He’s a college man,” my dad said, and he said it with admiration in his voice. I was somewhere around six years old at the time, and I had no idea what it meant to be a “college man.” So I asked, and what he told me was that people who had gone to college were special, that they were smart and that they knew what they were talking about. College, he told me, in his own words, was the portal to becoming such an educated person, as well as the avenue to success and achievement. College men, and women, he said, had been through that transformative experience. I thought about that long ago exchange last week as I read yet another report about how America’s colleges are failing miserably at their core mission of producing an educated citizenry for this country. With a few exceptions, they no longer turn out graduates my dad would have recognized as “college men and women.” Of course there’s nothing new in observing that. Anyone who has been paying attention at all knows
that college standards of academic rigor have fallen through the floor over the last half century. I taught college courses 25 years ago, and even then the word “excellence” was barely more than part of an advertising slogan when it came to the actual college education experience. But at least kids were learning something back in those days. Now, a quarter of a century after I left the classroom, a new study suggests that things have gotten so bad that many students are graduating from college without learning anything at all. According to a recently concluded study using 29 colleges and universities across the country (whose names were withheld to protect the guilty) some 46% of college students learn practically nothing in their first and second years on campus in the areas of critical thinking, logical reasoning, and writing. These are the critical skills an educated person must possess, but even after four years, 36% of today’s college seniors were only marginally better at them than they were the day they started.
Why? Because colleges concentrate too much on their student centers, and not enough on their libraries. They allow students to succeed without learning half of what they should. Except in a few disciplines such as the hard sciences, no academic rigor is demanded. In spite of having a once highly respectable 3.2 grade point average, students in the survey were able to make their grades with hardly any effort at all. 35% of them admitted that they spent fewer than five hours a week studying alone, the only way to study effectively. Half of them reported that they had never had to write a paper of more than 20 pages; one out of three reported they had never taken a course in which they had to read more than 40 pages a week. Today’s college students, according to the report, spend, on average, 50% less time studying than their parents and grandparents did. Is it any wonder so many of them are learning next to nothing at all? The job market, not surprisingly, is absolutely flooded
with recent college graduates who have next to no academic skills and next to none of the economic or occupational skills needed in the marketplace. What they have instead is huge student loan debts and the ability to type with their thumbs on their two by three inch cell phones. They can tweet and text and upload video clips to YouTube and manage their Facebook and Myspace accounts to make it look as if they actually have the glamorous lives they project into cyberspace, but in reality, a shocking number of their real lives are spent at their parents’ houses, where they have moved back after college. But it is not their fault. They don’t learn because they don’t study. They don’t study because they don’t have to. Kids, nearly all of them, even bright college kids, learn what they are forced to learn, and our colleges and universities have failed miserably by devaluing the college experience to the point that a college degree from too many colleges means next to nothing at all as an indicator of a person’s
education and abilities. Teachers know this, administrators know this, and students know this. Everyone, it seems, but the poor parents paying the bills know what a zero sum game college has become from an academic standpoint. That’s the bad news. The good news is that we could fix our colleges this very semester if we wanted to. It’s really very simple, and always has been. Assign more homework; give more tests, and flunk students who are unwilling or unable to do college work. That sounds harsh, but the world is becoming more and more unforgiving to those individuals who don’t work hard and know how to think. That’s a lesson better learned early than late. And countries that don’t have the resolve to separate those who won’t from those who do work hard aren’t going to make it in the future. And colleges that chase after student bodies and then neglect the development of their minds shouldn’t have a future either. Because if they do, the rest of us don’t.
Letter to the Editor Dear Editor: I was pleased the United States Congress read our United States Constitution in its entirety as this session opened. Our Founding Fathers succeeded in an accomplishment that has stood the test of over two hundred years, with astonishingly few amendments. As a member of David Craig Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution, we observe Constitution Week in September of each year. We are thankful to see honor given to this remarkable document. Sincerely, Eleanor Rooks Brownsville, TN 38012
A trip to the Museum Hey Haywood County, let me ask you a question. When was the last time you took a trip to the museum? I use the word “the” in front of museum like there’s only one museum in the entire world. Forgive me. What should have been asked is when was the last time you went to “a museum?” Last weekend, my mom surprised my family by treating us to a trip to the Slave Haven/ Burkle Estate and the Civil Rights Museum in Memphis. It was a first for me, as before last weekend, my feet had never set foot
into the two. To describe the experience is a little hard to put into words. Eye opener is a term I heard from my dad a few times, and I would have to agree. Educational and even fun would be two more words to add. Is it common that the older I become, the hungrier I am for more knowledge? There are few details I can remember from college graduation. My mind flashes images of hundreds of students, dressed in their black robes and caps, sitting in an area where the home games of Volunteer basketball

take place. We were all surrounded, being watched by spectators made up of our family, teachers and peers. We had a special guest speaker like all graduations do, but I cannot remember who he was. It’s nothing against him. My nerves were too busy wrestling with my brain. They were trying to send an announcement to my entire body that said “Do not trip when you accept your diploma.” What is remembered is the message or point the speaker tried eloquently to get across
to hundreds of brighteyed and naïve students, who were eager to tackle the real world and make their place. Our speaker talked of never ceasing your job as a student. Always continue to learn and seek knowledge. Obviously it’s something that really resonated with me because the memory of his speech kept creeping up in my mind while walking through the museums. Also, it is the only item I can remember about that guest speaker. I’m not even sure what he looked like. Heck, I’m even beginning to question if he wasn’t in

fact really a she. Again, nothing personal, it was just my nerves. I do believe that we should all continue to be students. And when that’s being said, I don’t mean in the sense that you have to be some scholar from an institution. What I mean is that we should be a student of the world. We should learn more about it, whether that world is our backyard or stretches as far as Ghana. And if we’re seeking teachers, then maybe we should look no further than some of our own family or friends. This column probably did not travel the path
you expected it to go. It opens with me mentioning my trip last weekend, and I’m sure that means you were expecting to hear a detailed account of what I read and heard. I’ll save that for another column. Instead, let me close Calvin’s Corner by asking you again, when was the last time you went to a museum or saw an exhibit? You do know that the Dunbar Carver Alumni Museum and West Heritage Delta Center offer free admission right? So what are you waiting for? Go learn.

Our life has changed dramatically because of our traumatic loss. If we look back we may not recognize who we have become or are becoming. In many ways it may appear very shocking to us as we look back. Of course as long as we are only looking back and not living in the past we are alright. The danger lies in our living in the past because it is painful to deal with the reality of the present and this we choose not to face. Thus we bury our hurt hoping that in doing this our pain will go away. In our journey with grief it is helpful to perform a periodic introspection. Two questions we would benefit asking is, do we like who we are since our loss, and what effect is who we have become had on those around us? Since this has been thrust upon us, we may be tempted to resist changing, because we do not like this reality, it is too unpleasant. This is risky business as it compels us to isolate ourselves in our attempt to stay the same as we were before our loss. We may also find that we have become irritable with others as we attempt to suppress accepting this transition. Thus do we like who we are at this point in our journey? Would family or friends say that they have noticed a forward momentum in our work with our grief? We can like who we are as we see our actions accepting the reality that has been thrust upon us and fulfilling the responsibilities necessary to live our new life to the fullest. After all, life goes on and we need to go on with it, becoming the best we can be. The best way to accomplish this is to take each day one day at a time, one step at a time. Surround yourself with as many supporters as possible and use them as often as necessary as you share your life with them. There is no reason to travel this journey alone when there is help available.
News of Years Gone By News of Years Gone By Friday January 30, 1981 Haywood Students honor Hostages A 20-foot Christmas tree bearing 53 yellow ribbons, symbolic of the recently released American hostages, was the center of attention at a ceremony held to commemorate their release at Haywood High School, Friday morning. Members of Mu Alpha Theta, the mathematics honors society headed by Mrs. Shirley Curry, and the Honors History Club, led by Ray Dixon, participated in the ceremony, where ten essays of freedom were read as the yellow ribbons were removed from the tree as each hostage was named. The ribbons are to be sent to the Olive Branch, Miss. Jaycees, who are collecting the yellow ribbons from all over the U.S. to be sent to the Ayatollah Khomeini as an expression of America’s concern for her fellow countrymen.
Students see Reagan sworn in Forty-two honor students and six
chaperones from Haywood High School traveled to Washington, last week, to enjoy the festivities of the nation’s capitol, and the inaugural of President Ronald Reagan. The group left Haywood High School on Sunday, January 18 bearing tickets to the parade and some of the ceremonies. They rode a charter bus. While in Washington they visited Sen. Jim Sasser and Rep. Ed Jones, and toured the capitol. They saw Hello Dolly and visited National Cathedral and Arlington Cemetery. En route home, they visited Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson.
Sharpe reports situation at the Utility Department Possibly some good news for natural gas customers of the Utility Department is the fact that the 17 percent increase in natural gas rates has been cut back to six percent and will become effective on February 1. The increase is being passed on to the city by the wholesaler, Texas Gas Transmission Co. John Sharpe, superintendent of the local Utility, said that the decrease in the anticipated rise was due
to the fact that the Federal Power Commission did not approve the increase.
Thursday January 31 1991 Grants awarded to city and county Brownsville and Haywood County will receive over $94,000 to be used for utility improvements. The grants, awarded last week by the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development, will provide money to pay for energy efficiency equipment at several city and county buildings. Brownsville has been approved for $44,369 and Haywood County for $50,000 in grant funds. Haywood County’s grant will be used to install energy efficient lighting and heating, ventilation, and air conditioning at College Hill Theater, and a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning set back for the Agricultural Extension office. The funds slated for Brownsville will be used to install similar equipment at city hall, the College Hill Museum and the Senior Citizens’ Center.
Hands across the Gulf
Fighting in Persian Gulf has created a strong sentiment at home to support the American men and women who are serving there. It has also created a strong determination to support the families who have been left behind in the United States. Brownsville is rallying to the cry, by establishing a support group for families of service men and women who are involved in Operation Desert Storm. The first meeting of the support group will be next Monday night, February 4, 7 p.m. at city hall. All family members and interested citizens are invited and urged to attend. Among the first pieces of business will be exchange of addresses so that Haywood Countians can find each other’s units overseas.

February 1, 2001 Wilder highway discussion brings cheers and groans Most who attended last Tuesday night’s public hearing on the proposed widening of state Highway 76 support the idea of a four-lane corridor from Interstate 40’s Exit 56 to Brownsville. The devil, however, appears to be in the details, such as whose land becomes highway and how many utilities will have to be moved to accommodate the project. “It’s going to be expensive,” Brownsville Utility Department Manager John Sharpe Sr. said. Electrical and gas service on one side of the highway, water and sewer on the other are all slated to move under the proposal Tennessee Department of Transportation staff unveiled at the two-hour hearing at Sunny Hill School. The local utility company must assume all costs, associated with moving utilities, Sharpe said.
No “crystal” ball needed to recognize looming problem with mobile methamphetamine manufacturers
Seventy-five law enforcement officers from Haywood and surrounding counties listened with interest Friday, when Sgt. Matt Pugh of the Memphis Police Department conducted a workshop at the West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center on locating, identifying and seizing illegal crystal methamphetamine labs. The Drug Enforcement Agency reported four illegal lab seizures in 1998 in West Tennessee, 45 in 1999 and 130 in 2000.

8th grade parents to meet
We are almost one month into the New Year. It seems like time passes way too fast now these days. It seems like this library building just opened up. Has it really been open since 1992? Now that we have the majority of the renovations complete, the library is looking mighty spiffy. Come by and see us. The new carpet looks great, as do the walls with its fresh coat of paint. We are working very hard to get all our books back on the shelves as quickly as we can. We are doing an inventory process and it
takes a little bit of time, but progress is being made. We thank you for your patience and understanding. Yes, we have tax forms. No, we do not have all the forms that we have ordered. We are waiting for the IRS to deliver the rest of our orders. No, we do not know when the IRS will ship them. The staff of the library is not qualified to give any type of tax advice. If you have questions about which forms you need, please contact a certified tax preparer or the IRS. Thanks!

Wilbert receives Athletic Trainers’ Society Educator Award Martin – Dr. Janet Wilbert, University of Tennessee at Martin assistant professor of health and human performance and athletic training coordinator, recently received the Jerry Robertson Educator Award from the Tennessee Athletic Trainers’ Society (TATS). The award was presented during the honors and awards luncheon at the 19th Annual Tennessee Athletic
Trainers’ Society Business Meeting and Clinical Symposium in Nashville. Wilbert, who also serves as UT Martin faculty senate president, has been a certified athletic trainer since 1992 and has practiced in both the high school and clinical outreach settings. She joined UT Martin in 2000 to start the athletic training program. She has been a member of TATS since
1995 and served as chair of the TATS professional education committee for the last five years. Prior to that, she was co-chair and a committee member and has been instrumental in coordinating the annual TATS meeting for 10 years. The award is named for former head athletic trainer Jerry Robertson of East Tennessee State University for his work in creating, implementing and
establishing the first undergraduate athletic training education program in the state. The award is given to an individual who is an athletic trainer in the educational setting and whose dedication and service to athletic trainers and/or athletic training students exemplifies his or her desire to learn and/or teach regarding the profession of athletic training.
East Side students apply for classroom positions For the second semester, Ms. Hardin’s third-grade class filled out new job applications to fulfill positions in the classroom. The classroom economy system pays the students “Eastville dollars.” From this system, students learn how to earn, spend, and save money responsibly.

UT Martin receives $75,000 THEC award to offer teachers professional development for reading Martin – The Tennessee Higher Education Commission has awarded the University of Tennessee at Martin $75,000 for an Improving Teacher Quality Grant for Project Reading to Increase Comprehension in Academics (RICA). This is the second year of funding for the project, coordinated by Dr. Beverly Hearn, associate professor of education. Project RICA provides professional development for middle and high school teachers. Twenty-four teachers will be chosen
to participate this spring and summer in sessions that focus on the new core curriculum, using classroom libraries and methods for more effective teaching of reading and writing within the content area classrooms: science, social studies and mathematics. “Results from the first year of the project demonstrated a 63.1 percent improvement in teachers’ knowledge of reading strategies for their students,” said Hearn. In addition to the professional d e v e l o p m e n t ,
participants will select their own classroom library materials valued at $1,000 to provide additional reading materials to be used in developing their reading and writing activities. Participating teachers will also receive an iPad and be trained in its use. The iPads will be used to access enrichment materials via electronic libraries and the Web. “UT Martin has a tradition of providing professional development through the ITQ program,” said Dr. Beth Quick, Department of Educational Studies
chair. “In our rural area, the availability of highquality professional development is very important for our educators. For Dr. Hearn to receive a second year of funding speaks to the success of the first year of Project RICA.” Although UT Martin partnered with Crockett County Schools in developing the proposal, school teachers from other area districts are also eligible to apply. For more information about participation, interested teachers should contact Hearn at bhearn@utm. edu or 731-881-7197

Local teacher goes to Oprah Show East Side third-grade teacher Shalondria Hardin marked one dream off of her bucket list recently. After five years of endless trying, she finally received reservations, along with three family members, to attend a taping on January 19 of the Oprah Show in its final season. “The staff was amazing,” Shalondria said. “They exemplify how teamwork really makes the dream work. They were flawless in preparing us for the show and directing Oprah during the taping. This was an amazing experience that I hope will be a lesson to all. Patience and perseverance is worth even your wildest dreams. This was also on my Bucket List and, no, I didn’t receive a new car or fancy gadget. Most importantly I received something I wanted and that was the experience of a lifetime.” The episode aired on January 25.

Bethel - Belle Eagle News
With Marty W M Williams W Things are happening in Brownsville! First of all, I need to get this apology off my chest before I even begin to write this column. I made the terrible mistake when writing that Joe & Katrina Ing’s daughter Sarah was recently engaged to James Tildon Haynes! NOT so!!! She is engaged to Mark Tildon Haynes, known as Tildon. Wedding plans are going on in the Ing household and poor Joe Ing is in the middle of it! I have fabulous scoop on Ms. Suzie’s great grandchild being born! The parents are Marie and Reed Hill. It is a baby boy named Louis Baddour Hill after Reed’s paternal grandfather. Larry and Annette, Reed’s parents, are flying high and so are Frank and Flo Bryan, Marie’s parents! Needless to say, great-grands, Ms. Suzie and Ms. Elizabeth are beside themselves with delight! Congratulations! There are pictures on Facebook of baby Louis Baddour Hill and he is beautiful. I believe Larry has fallen in love with his precious grandson and can NOT get enough of his enchanting face! There are pictures of the mothers, fathers, grandmothers, greatgrandmothers and cousins also. There is also a hysterical picture of Marie and Reed’s dog Watson, in protection mode, as Larry calls it, on the couch with the baby. It was a family affair for sure! My friend, Beth Crider and her husband Lewis (former police detective in Brownsville) are shimmering with anticipation! Her oldest child, Knox, is now engaged! His fiancée’s name is Kate Amanda Alford and she is from Medina. Beth told me her mother is from Brownsville, but I don’t have all the details on that….yet. Coffees and brunches are already in the works for this couple. The wedding date has been set for May 21 at FUMC. One of my daughters, Brandy Lynn, used to be Knox’s babysitter! Where is the time flying??? I know
Marvin and Judy Deberry, Knox’s grandparents, are absolutely thrilled! So many of my friends have told me they were tickled to death that I had taken over lovely Ms. Suzie’s column. Ms. Ann Mann, Dorothy Jackson, Jane Hopkins, Peggy Haynes, Libba & Lyle Reid, Richard Gray, Carol Williams and Jane Jameson are just a few. My fantastic friend, Ms. Bess Hooper, even put a little card in my mailbox that was so charming! I am just amazed! I personally think it’s because I was married to her son David, so many times in the plays we were in together at College Hill. I think she is emotionally attached to me! I love her to pieces! My choir mate, Jane Jameson said that now we can know what’s happening in Brownsville again and she and Richard gave me some pointers, after church this morning. One of my daughters, Brandy Lynn, told me this was right up my alley! She is the one I always create invitations and write poems for her children’s’ events and her friends’ children’s’ events. I was sent a dilly of a picture of my old friend and co-worker, Mark Kendrick. He is another States-Graphic alumnus. Someone had snapped him wrapped up in a ZEBRA snuggie, sleeping in a chair with his mouth wide open! If I have my info correct, the snuggie was his sister Sheila’s and his darling, daring wife took the picture. I actually thought black and white Zebra stripes suited his coloring very well! I have one other tiny tidbit of news. I just found out last week that Kelly Willis Rodgers and husband Hunter are now expecting a mini bundle on June 21. They had a ‘Revealment’ party recently, where they let everyone know it will be a girl! Isn’t that fabulous?? Hair bows…here we come!!! Janet and John Willis are in their glory. This will be their very first grandchild. When
Kelly, my daughter Jami Beth, and Kate Chapman were in grade school together, those hair bows were of the utmost importance to those three little girls. I still have the bag filled with them hanging in my closet! I love hair bows! Now I can start buying them for the next generation. Of course, we bought most of them from Mimi’s shop back then and Mimi is no longer doing business. Anyone else willing to start stocking hair bows for gifts? David and Kathy Cook took a jaunt up to Nashville to visit darling Katie! She is their grand-daughter and the child of Rachel and Bob Freeman. I-40 has become their friend since adorable Katie has been born. The last time they went up to see her; she danced in front of the door through the window when she saw them. In fact, Kathy did a bit of a demo while we were waiting in line to tromp up to the choir loft. It was extremely amusing at that hour of the morning, especially to see Kathy being Katie. Awww… grandchildren! Aren’t they humbling and awesome??? Due to the yucky weather, we had our first Brownsville Homecoming rehearsal rescheduled for today at 4:00 p.m. We got it cranked up and will perform it Friday of this week. All of us on the Arts Council, Livingston’s and INSOUTH have tickets. They are $12.50 for adults and $5.00 for students. If you have never experienced a Brownsville Homecoming, you need to in order to uplift your soul! You have no idea how much talent lives in Brownsville. It is just amazing! If you need more information, please call Betsy Thornton at 772-4883. Email address to send me the Scooparoundtownmarty@aol. com and cell phone # 7804111. Plus…I also created an Around Town with Marty Facebook page so you may leave your yummy scoop there too! We are cookin’ and jammin’!!!!
Holly Grove News By Martha H. Jones “Men’s Day” was observed at Holly Grove Church last Sunday with 20 men from the church occupying the choir, and singing the call to worship led by Tim Fain. Prior to the services, Candace Perry was baptized. Danny Simpson did a great job singing the special music, followed by three of our men Milton Booth, Jerry Taylor, and Ernest O’Neal giving their testimonies. At the night services, Robert Barden and Dewey Jones gave their testimonies. Robert heads out for the county jail each Sunday morning, and over the many years has seen 2307 people come to know Christ as Savior. Dewey heads off to the radio station each Sunday morning to bring the Sunday school lesson which he has been doing for 42 years. God has blessed us with many dedicated men at Holly Grove. Happy birthday to: Mark Stephens, Timothy Johnson, Taylor Outlaw, Bradley Williams, Josh McClinton, Belinda Mitchell, Steve Brown, and Renee Campbell. The list of the sick seems
to increase each week. Winter weather may contribute to some health problems. Our friend Mae Simpson is in Bells Rest Home right now. Betty Jean Outlaw is also in the Bells Home. Albertine McBride is scheduled for surgery this week to correct a problem from a former surgery. Ray and Janie Hight are in need of our prayers. Elaine Brown is also scheduled for surgery this week, as is Carolyn Watridge. Our longtime friend, Elsie Lewis, is having a difficult time. Jessie White is back home, but still having difficulty with the shingles. Pray for all of these, along with Bob Alexander, James Lewis, Jane Carr, Ruth Taylor, Betty Doyle, Becky Campbell, Carey Lipford, Carol Wilson, Glenn White, Jean Mann, Danny Murphy, and Ted Mann. Some of our people are having flu or pneumonia symptoms, Greg and Beth Baker, Christy Fain, and Nancy Campbell. Alan and Debbie Jones traveled to the Capitol City on Friday, and were overnight guests of Barry and Kim Young. Following
a meal together that night, they attended the Nashville Symphony. I made several calls last week to check on some relatives and friends during the snowy weather. It was good to hear from them. The redbirds and finches have flocked to our feeder on the patio and emptied it, but I have been afraid to go out and fill it for fear of the icy steps and snow and ice on the patio. The birds are so pretty and very entertaining to watch. Danny Simpson’s family attended church with him Sunday in celebration of his birthday. His daughter Rita and husband Wayne Alexander and their family, his daughter Vickie and her husband, Kelley Bonawitz, and their family, and son Chad and his wife Leah and their family came for the occasion. Also, his grandson Blake’s fiancé was with him. Following services, they all gathered at the beautiful home of Danny and Brenda on Poplar Corner Rd. for time together and a delicious meal.
Volunteers, thank you for coming this week: Christ Temple ladies, CCClub, Beech Grove Church of Christ, First Assembly of God church ladies, Holly Grove Baptist Church, United Pentecostal Church, Westside Church of Christ, Community Temple of the Living Church ladies, and the Macedonia Baptist Church. Thank you to Treasure Chest for all the Valentine
decorations they donated; we appreciate their thoughtfulness. We want everyone to come and vote on their favorite patient for Valentine King and Queen. The box is set up in the lobby for you to vote. On Wednesday, we had such a fun time with “Crazy Hat Parade.” Several of the patients wore Mexican hats, New Years hats, straw hats, etc. walking and rolling in
their wheel chairs singing, “You Are My Sunshine” and waving up and down to other patients in their rooms. It was fun bringing lots of laughter to everyone. Thought for the week: Believe the impossible, expect the unpredictable, reach for the unthinkable, and never settle for the unreasonable. Through Christ who strengthens me, anything is possible. –G. Franklin
By Betty Scott Many of us make New Year’s resolutions that have by now been broken. Losing weight is the most common one and one that many cannot keep. Diane Williams, who regularly attends Curves and exercises at Bethel Community Church twice a week, has joined a clinic in Jackson to further help her with her weight loss. How serious is this? Good luck, Diane! When the weather gets warmer plans are being made for a gathering at Bethel Community Center for anyone having old pictures of relatives or friends from this community. Willie Bohannon, from Ripley,
has some old films from long ago that will be shown. The date and time will be announced later. The more pictures and film we have the more fun this will be. I heard Will and Carol Kendrick went snow sledding with parents, Dede and Kenny, and dropped by to pick up Aunt Libby and Elizabeth Kendrick to join the fun. Maggie Anne Herron was participating in exercises at school getting ready for the softball season and injured her ankle. She is on crutches and did not get to enjoy playing in the snow. We wish her a speedy recovery! Snow cream was enjoyed by Kenneth and Bettye
Sargent. Frank Matlock was released from Jackson General and will start radiation treatments this Monday. Since this is the cold and flu season, his doctors recommend not having a lot of visitors. Because of bad weather, Terri Knight rescheduled her appointment until this week. Terri rededicated her life at Bethel Community Church and asks everyone to pray for her. Diane Williams joined Bethel last Sunday and we are so glad to have her in our church. Thought for the week: WORK as if you don’t need the money; LOVE as if you’ve never been hurt; SING as if no one is listening; DANCE as if no one is watching.
Allen News By Gail Barden We had a good service on Sunday morning. Brother Phil delivered a great message and the choir sang the special music. Anna Claire Jordan was a visitor with Mrs. Mary Jo Frady, and we, along with Wanda Dew, had lunch together after the services. It is always good to have Anna Claire with us. She has grown up so fast and she is such a beautiful girl. Baptist Men’s Day will be observed on Sunday, Jan. 30, and Mark Kendrick will be our speaker for the day. Our men will fill the
choir after having breakfast together at the church at 8:30. Mr. Hal Rodgers will lead the choir. The Young at Heart group will have lunch at the church on Friday, Jan. 28. Soup and Sandwiches will be served. Congratulations to Marie and Reed Hill on the birth of their son, Louis Baddour Hill. Proud grandparents, Annette and Larry Hill, have now discovered why we grandparents act as we do. Great-grandparents are Elizabeth Baddour and
Susie Tipton. We are so happy for all of you. Happy Birthday to: Warren Marlar, Andrea Gaters, Amanda Blurton, and Brad Richardson. Our prayer list includes: Billy Kirby, Jerry Baggett, Mabel Williams, Carolyn White, Gale Watson, Bobby Hooper, Martha Crutcher, Jimmy and Carolyn Danley, and Steve White. Our Bible verse for this week is Proverbs 10:12, which states, “Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all sins.” Have a blessed week.

Kirk was the grandson of Richard and Jessie Kirkland of Somerville, and he is survived by many relatives within the community. Sympathy is extended to the families of Mrs. Margaret Covington and Mr. Finis
Sullivan, Jr. in the loss of their loved ones. Our closing thought for the Week as published in the Upper Room Devotional by Yaneth Orozco of Columbia. “Go to God first.” Too often, rather than seeking God’s help, we try our own methods to solve our problems and we often end up frustrated or in tears. But God’s promise is before us: “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” God has the solution to our problems if we only believe in and trust in His Word and ask Him for help. If you have news to share, please call me at 772-1885 after 5:00 p.m. Until next week God Bless.

Wellwood/Zion News By Denise Phillips If you are a child of God, then you are flying first class! Brother Mark Conway used Ephesians 3 to reveal an ancient mystery Sunday morning at Zion and used this illustration. Jesus Christ is for both Jew and Gentile. None of us need to fly “coach”. Where do you stand? Mike and Jane Hopper reported that 30 attended the “Hope for Glory” Church plant in Brownsville. This is a great start in their new place with our first count for Zion. Norma, Allison, and Hayleigh came by to visit Sunday afternoon while Jimmy, Jason, and Justin were hunting. She brought over spaghetti for dinner before going on to evening service. Norma had to take Hayleigh home after Church for school the next day, but I think Allison spent the night with her. Discipleship training is in full swing each Sunday night at 6 with the adults studying Nehemiah. There are classes for everyone from birth to adult with Bible Drill practices for children and youth. We also observed the Lord’s Supper
last Sunday night. With school out Monday, my sisters and I decided to take in a movie. We went out to eat afterwards and then Norma took us on a tour of Jackson. At least we figured out where Randall and Whitney Elrod live, but they were not home. We went by to visit with Julian and Sheila Williamson and their boys. They have been remodeling their home and it looks gorgeous. After a quick stop at Walmart, we came home in the rain. While we were out visiting, I missed a visit from my friend Lee Ann Garrett. However, I hope she will come again when I am at home. She wants to see what the old store (or what’s left of it) looks like. Scottie Morris reported that 14 attended the men’s prayer breakfast Thursday with Brother Mark leading the devotion. Thanks to all the men for praying! With the snow on Thursday, and school out Friday, Norma and I decided to visit the Rainey’s in Franklin and watch my grandsons’ basketball games Saturday morning. Britany and Alivia Phillips
traveled with us and we had the best time. Friday night we shopped at the Cool Springs Mall, and Lyla and I stayed up late telling stories. Then, Saturday morning it was one ball game at nine followed by a visit to Barnes and Noble Book Store to see the “Cat in the Hat” at eleven. After lunch, another ball game, and lots of shopping, we headed home late Saturday. As Becky put it, “we crammed all we could into one night and day”. Happy birthday wishes to Ashley Wright, Sherri Mothershed, and Caribeth Friedman. Hope you each enjoy(ed) your special day. Feb. 12 is the date set for Zion’s Valentine’s Banquet and April 3 thru 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!
Union News By Sylessie Ross
Willie and I would like to thank everyone for their donations and everything that they did for us on the benefit program a few weeks ago. Happy Birthday to everyone born in the month of January! My condolences to the families of William “June “Bug” Brown, Eugene Snipes, and Conius Lee in Chicago, ILL.; the uncle of my niece Connie Lee. I was so sorry to hear about the passing of Wilma King whom I have known all my life. Ms. Wilma is the sister of Ruth Sills Qualls. My mother, Rivers Gaines used to work for Ms. Ruth and my brother Robert Gaines worked for her husband Richard Sills. We really enjoyed Minister George Seymour who delivered the morning message for pastor Harden this past Sunday. Pastor Franklin Collins and Bluff Creek church worshiped with Pastor Tom Averyheart and Willow Grove on Sunday. I must say that I am so happy that Rosie Lee Hines is out of the hospital, doing well and back at church! Remember
in prayer; 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. & Mrs. Jessie White, Cynthia Bullock Transor, Glenn White, and Fannie Anderson. Thought For The Week: “Defend Your Mind” Do you think change is easy? Ask anyone who has tried to break a bad habit, or change a wrong mindset and attitude, and you will discover change doesn’t always feel good. It involves renewing your mind and replacing wrong mindsets with God’s way of thinking and doing things. It also involves defending your mind against wrong thoughts. The daily battle confronting you, when you decide to change, takes place in your mind. The enemy may lead you to believe you can’t change or that it is too difficult; however, be steadfast in maintaining a mindset that is focused on God and His Word. This will be the key to your success. How do you defend
your mind? You do it by capturing wrong thoughts when they come. Whenever you begin thinking in a way that doesn’t line up with the Word, cast those wrong thoughts down by speaking God’s Word. Every day you will have the opportunity to go back to old ways of thinking. From your interactions with others, to personal decisions, you will have to choose God’s thoughts over your own. You can do it! You’re not alone on your road to change; the Spirit of God and His Word are there to help you. Decide today to turn away from anything that doesn’t line up with His Word. Stay in the Word and keep out the wrong influences as an act of your will. When you become a good custodian over your thought life, you will be victorious over negative thoughts. Scripture Of The Day: “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” Romans 12:2
Retirement Center News
By Shirley Tucker, Activity Director Well, we doodled this week with no help from any one. Yep, it was a lot like “piddling.” We got so tickled at each other’s doodling that Diane had to come out and tell us to be a little quieter; we were disturbing the folks trying to take naps. Grace Mulligan made lots of sport over whatever it was that Martha Jane Williams doodling was supposed to be. At one point she doodled a flock of birds and then the next thing we knew the birds were flying over the bridge over the river Kwai. That’s what Martha Jane told us anyway. Are we supposed to believe that? Arline Boisvert was the best doodler, could it be because she was an artist to begin with? She could actually draw things people could recognize. Our love and prayers are with the family of Marion Wright this week, especially Mrs. Doris. She and her daughter brought us an arrangement of the beautiful flowers that were at the service and while here they visited Lyde Hamilton, Joan Lanphere,
Alystine Hare, and Grace Mulligan who had all been her neighbors at one time or another. We had a special guest this week when Judge Clayborn Peeples took time out of his busy schedule to come share some of his vast knowledge with our residents. He came on his lunch hour and talked about FOOD; how appropriate. He told us how a Seventh Day Adventist doctor named Kellogg made the first wheat flake and the first corn flake in Battle Creek, Mich. He went on to tell that later his brother, wanted to sell the flakes in big boxes in grocery stores. The original brother said NO… his flakes were only to be sold by prescription. The second brother sued the first brother and won. That was the beginning of our morning cereal. It still comes from Battle Creek, Mich. Judge Peeples went from telling about cereal to talking about the movie “CASABLANCA.” When I say he has “vast knowledge” I’m not just whistling Dixie. He is smart! Thanks; Judge, for sharing it with us.
Our other special guest this week was a little long-haired Chihuahua who came bringing Carol Williams with her for our pet therapy. She was a darling little blonde named “Precious.” Arline Boisvert, Martha Jane Williams, Jottye Newman, Barbara McGary, Dorothy Morris, Katie McAdams, and Frances Blalock all fell in love with her. She did promise to come back soon and bring Carol with her. Guess you’ve all heard about the latest scam that’s hit Brownsville. A man in a white van is stopping at homes selling MEAT. He has a woman and child with him sitting in the van. After he gets in the house, he asks if they can come in because it’s so cold outside. Once they get in they distract the woman and he robs her of anything lying around of value. Ladies, please don’t stay at home all alone. Come spend the winter with us here at Sugar Creek. Try us for a week, a month or the winter. You’ll feel better and so will your family knowing you’re safe and taken care of.

Stanton News By Debbie Sterbinsky When it rains it pours! We’ve had our share of problems at the Stanton Welcome Center lately with equipment failure. We were without a fax machine for a week or so, but we’ve managed to fix that problem. The following week the printers went out and of course the week after, our main computer crashed too, but we’re still hobbling along. Actually we have a great computer repair man right here in Stanton so that helps a lot! OK, on to the recap of 2010 – I’m really trying to just pick the highlights but seems like there is a lot! Richard Turner and the Stanton Cannery were featured on the front page of the Food Section of the Commercial Appeal.

Mitchell Covington, minister at Scottsville, Ky., Church of Christ, officiating. Burial was in Memorial Gardens. Afterwards a family meal at Westside Church of Christ was provided. Margaret, the widow of Robert H. Covington, Jr., fought a courageous battle with cancer. She leaves three other sons, Steve Covington, Terry Covington, Mark Covington, and one daughter, Lisa Covington Runions of Gadsden and a brother, Kenneth Buie. Gala Covington, wife of Mitchell, tells me that her parents, Lannas and Medrith Anschultz of Ark., are retiring. While living here in the 70’s or 80;s, Medrith was employed by First State Bank and their home was on Hart Drive. Freda Davis of Savannah and wife of Billy Davis, who worships here, states that she has not been well for quite some time and has had surgery since he’s been with TVA here, but his work here concludes in March. We have enjoyed having him and send getwell prayers to Freda. Teri Robinson, employed by the local utility department, had surgery Jan. 13, and has been missed. She is wife of Craig and mother of sons, Grayson, Jackson, and Eason. Tabitha Parsons, granddaughter of Wally and Betty Delaney, had a tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy. Hello to all our shutins. We miss each of you. Our hearts rejoiced to learn on Wednesday evening that Larry Sutherland, husband of Angel Frye Sutherland, was baptized into Christ here. Emily Sweeney was able to be with us in worship Wednesday evening, but had been sick due to kidney stones and some complications for a week. Her mother, Hazel Mooneyham, is on the eighth floor of JacksonMadison County General
Hospital. It was reported Wednesday evening also that Wilma Newsome had been in the local hospital. Pat Owens, one of her daughters, was scheduled for back surgery earlier in the week in Memphis Baptist Memorial, formerly was known as Baptist East. Bro. Josh and Janet’s third son’s name is Nicholas Charles Barnett. He joins Noah and Nathan Barnett, his brothers, and they live in Nashville. He only weighed 9 lbs. and 14 oz. Sunday we rejoiced when Pam Johnson Rogers came forward wishing to be restored to the Lord’s Church. Her little granddaughter, Harlie, was visiting with her, the daughter of Reagan, who has not been well. Monday evening, Jan. 17, Mac Perry, Larry Sweeney, Jack and Nell Fox, Paul and Mary Lewis, Jerry Myers, and
Brian Massey attended the regular third Monday night singing with Crestview residents. Resident members of Westside, Leonard Pierce and Minnie King, were able to be in the group, as well as our other resident friends, who assemble with us and also on the first Sunday of each month when we travel on to Sugar Creek Retirement. The regular gettogether of our Senior Joyful Pilgrims group was postponed Thursday, Jan. 20, due to the passing and funeral of our sister Margaret Covington. It is scheduled next Thursday at 11:30 at Veranda. Sunday, Jan. 30, being a fifth Sunday, a potluck meal is scheduled following morning services and that afternoon at 2:30, Beech Grove Church of Christ on Marvin Chapel Rd. will host our fifth Sunday singing. Everyone is invited to both of these activities.

Beware of Common Senior Scams Fraud targeting senior citizens is a growing concern, as millions have fallen victim nationwide. The Better Business Bureau (BBB) is encouraging families to recognize and avoid some common cons targeting seniors. Roughly 20 percent of Americans aged 65 or older already have been taken advantage of financially by inappropriate investment opportunities, unreasonably high fees for financial services or outright fraud, according to a recent survey by Investor Protection Trust. Some common senior scams include: * Sweepstakes and Lottery Scams: Victims usually receive letters stating they have won a lottery or sweepstakes; sometimes claiming to be from Publisher’s Clearing House or Reader’s Digest. The letters tell victims to deposit an enclosed check and wire a portion back to the company to cover taxes or administration fees. The funds
initially appear in the bank account, but are removed when the bank determines the check is fake. * Medicare Scams: Scammers claim to be with Medicare and ask for personal information such as Medicare, Medicaid, social security, credit card or bank account numbers. Seniors should know Medicare will never call to ask for sensitive personal financial information. * Bereavement Scams: Scammers call widows or widowers and claim their spouses had outstanding debts that need to be paid immediately. If you are uncertain about owing a debt when collectors call, ask for written confirmation. * Investment and Work at Home Opportunities: Promises of easy money often target older adults because they may be looking to supplement their incomes. The pitch might come in the form of an investment opportunity that promises big returns, or as a way to make money at home for an upfront cost. The
victim is offered what sounds like a great opportunity but the extra income never materializes. Always research any work at home opportunity with the BBB. Beware of investment or moneymaking offers that seem too good to be true or use high pressure sales tactics to get you to sign up immediately. For more advice on avoiding scams and fraud visit bbb.org/us/ consumer-tips-scams. “Having a serious conversation with your elderly parents about how they are managing their money is not easy, but it is extremely important in order to help protect them from unscrupulous crooks,” said Alison Southwick, BBB spokesperson. “It’s extremely important to keep the lines of communication open so that you can identify suspicious spending habits, as well as educate your elder family members on recognizing the red flags of common cons.”

Haywood County hit with winter weather Haywood County experienced snowfall in the area for the third straight week in January, keeping many authorities and city employees busy dealing with any potential wreck and snow/ice-covered streets. Parents have also had to contend with schools closing, while the children have taken the opportunity to enjoy the snowy weather and time off from school. Residents may be able to rest easy for the remainder of the week, as temperatures highs are expected to rise to the 40s and 50s. Photos By Vicky Fawcett and J. P. Moses

Exchange Club-Carl Perkins Center Plans Ladies Night Out Benefit, More The Exchange Club Carl Perkins Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse would like to thank all of the individuals, groups, churches, civic organizations, schools and companies that helped make Christmas a brighter holiday season for 229 children in Haywood County. The parents and caregivers were very appreciative and amazed by the outpouring of generosity that allowed their children to have something under the tree Christmas morning. What a special treat it is to see many of the children’s eyes light up as they share stories about what it was like waking up Christmas morning. The Center’s successful and funfilled Ladies Night Out will return this year on February 24 beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Brownsville Country Club for the benefit of Haywood County children. All ladies are invited to attend. Please spread the word and invite your friends! Ladies Night Out will soon be followed by the Center’s annual Dinner and Auction, March 12 at the Wyatt
Duke National Guard Armory. Plans are currently underway to make this great fundraising event likewise successful for the good of those in need. A d d i t i o n a l information on these events or becoming involved in assisting the Haywood County Exchange Club Carl Perkins Center can be obtained by calling 731-772-8378; or emailing haywood@ carlperkinscenter.org.

It’s so cold, and cold weather means high electric bills. Why? The colder it is the more your heating unit has to work to keep your home warm. Try setting your thermostat to a reasonable setting and using conventional heating methods, such as candles and blankets, to make up for the lack of heat.
