Stanton Volunteer Fire Department recieves equipment

Marathon Heater Coming To Brownsville By CALVIN CARTER ccarter@statesgraphic.com

Many would easily agree with the notion that it takes a special type of man or woman to constantly put your life on the line. But if you’re like Stanton Volunteer Fire Department Chief, Robert “Rooster” Dancy, then putting your life on the line while saving others contains about the same risk as

simply getting out of bed. “It doesn’t really make a difference to me,” Dancy said. “You can go at any time. You know, when it’s your time, it’s your time.” While firefighters are a special breed of person, it’s volunteer fighters like in Stanton that probably deserve their own category. The pay, a paltry $10 a call, barely covers the cost of the gas to get to the department. Then again, none of them are in it for the pay. And nothing, short of

money, has stopped this staff of 12 from giving their best to the town of Stanton, whether that means battling blazes, or cutting down trees from the aftermath of violent storms. Still, with funding that just doesn’t equal the same as perhaps their department cousins in Brownsville, the volunteer department has struggled with acquiring adequate equipment. Recently though, they’ve caught a few breaks. One of See FIRE page 3

It’s now official. Marathon Heater is coming to Brownsville. The company recently announced that they have purchased Glenn Electric Heater Company’s Brownsville manufacturing and design information for “all their product lines” . Haywood Element closed roughly a month ago, with 30 people losing their jobs. Marathon plans to hire 50 to 60 employees, though it currently remains unknown if the 30 employees who lost their job with Haywood Element will get a first crack at the positions. John Finn Jr. the plant manager at Haywood Element for the last 30 years will continue as plant manager. The city and county have agreed to give a total of $50,000 to the Brownsville Industrial Board to help cover the moving expenses for Marathon. The state will also provide Marathon with a number of various tax credits and special incentives to operate in Brownsville. Marathon was founded in 1996 as a manufacturer of industrial-grade heating elements and temperature sensors. They specialize in custom designer and industrial products, industrial cartridge, heating industrial silicone rubber heaters, industrial nozzle heaters and industrial air heaters. According to the company’s website, new products that will be added to the Marathon product line thanks to its Brownsville location will be tubular heaters, immersion heaters, starflex band heaters, refractory strip heaters and kamlrok disc heaters.

Hwy 54 Accident By CALVIN CARTER ccarter@statesgraphic.com Driving while tired can be very dangerous, as one driver learned Monday, August 8 in Haywood County. Authorities were called to Highway 54 near Highway 14, for a one-vehicle wreck. Cordiar House, a Gates, resident flipped his car into a ditch off of Highway 54. According to Tennessee Highway Patrol Trooper Billy Jackson, House was driving eastbound on 54 when he fell

asleep at the wheel. House’s vehicle ran off onto the north side of the highway, striking a concrete, which then caused the vehicle to flip upside down into the ditch area. It’s believed that despite the damage to the vehicle, House only suffered minor injuries. He was reportedly already out of the vehicle by the time authorities arrived, and was up and talking before being taken by the ambulance. House was taken to Haywood Park Community Hospital for a further look.

City Agrees on Payment to IDB By CALVIN CARTER ccarter@statesgraphic.com

The Brownsville City Board of Mayor and Aldermen met for their monthly meeting Tuesday, August 9 for a rather short agenda. Among the items discussed by the board, included a second reading of Ordinance #888, which will amend the Municipal Zoning Ordinance regulating development in flood areas. Even with the intimidating 26page ordinance, Mayor Jo Matherne explained to the board that there really aren’t any significant changes to the original zoning ordinance. It only updates a few things to make sure their in compliance with FEMA regulations, she noted. The ordinance passed. The board also passed Resolution #816, which authorizes a $25,000 payment to the Industrial Development Board to help with moving costs for

Marathon Heater, Inc. The business recently announced that they were purchasing Haywood Element, which closed down during the summer costing 30 employees their jobs. The business plans on bringing approximately 50-60 new jobs in the city. The county also agreed to give $25,000 to Marathon during their county commission meeting last month. The state is also apparently investing in the company’s move. It is currently unknown when the company will begin production. In other news, the board agreed to on a number of city board and commission appointments. On the Historic-Zoning Commission, Lynn Shaw and Carrie Parker will be reappointed for a five-year term to end on June 30, 2016. Linda Freeman was reappointed to a four-year term on the beer board that will end June 30, 2015. Marry Ann Pennel was voted onto the Animal Shelter for a four-year term

that will end in 2015. Julie Dahlhauser and Goldie Harwell will continue to be appointed to the Library Board with both being up for reappointment on June 30, 2013 and June 30, 2014, respectively. John Meuther will serve out his last term on the Library Board till June 30, 2013. Tim Stokely, Mark Halbrook and Della Ligon have been appointed to the Revolving Loan Fund, with two more members to be added soon. Taxi Cab Board will include Brownsville Police Chief Chris Lea, City Clerk Jessica Frye and Alderman Leon King whose terms will end on June 30 2014. And the City Beautiful Commission will include Walter Battle and Jane K. Watson who will serve until June 30, 2012, Sheri Richards, Barrow Taylor and Keith Walker who will serve until June 30, 2013, J.P. Hathcock and Gem Bell who will serve until June 30, 2014, and Parks & Recreation Director Nancy Cates and Conservation Board Chair Carolyn

Flagg. And Finally, TVA’s bill for June was $1,601,396.86. This month, an average residential eclectic bill will have an increase of approximately half of a percent. And June unemployment was 15.6 percent.

Aiming For Success Annual Convocation Held

There are many breaking definitions of convocation. Some dictionaries will define the event as a special assembly of bishops and representative clergy. Others would define it as a ceremonial assembly of members of a college or university. For Haywood County, one could probably look at a certain convocation as a unique mix of both, as well as an opportunity to get the parents and community excited about Haywood County Schools new year. The event, which, pulled in a multitude of local and area leaders, featured performances from the Haywood County High School Show Choir. Haywood County Schools Director Marlon King began the school year with his annual State of the Schools message and convocation Wednesday August 3 at Christ Church.

This years was not only about current students in the Haywood County School System, but also provided a spotlight on some of HHS successful and leading HHS alumni. And before King discussed some of the school system regulations and rules, the event also

There are a limited number of spaces available and Individuals and organizations are encouraged to apply immediately.

Rev. & Mrs. Gary W. Mitchell 50th Anniversary

FIRE Continued their trucks, that practically contained little gear at one point, is now full of some of the latest firefighting equipment thanks to a grant they acquired. And thanks to the generosity of two fire departments in upstate New York, Stanton welcomes some more much needed equipment. The donation started, thanks to area Constable Dan Groh, who inquired if the department needed any more gear. Groh is a friend of Joe Santagelo, a Lieutenant for the Guilford Fire Department in Guilford New York, who was looking to donate extra gear. Dancy along with Stanton Volunteer Fire Fighter Kim Howard, made the 1,070 mile trip to Guilford last Tuesday, August 2. After 16-17 hours on the road, the two were surprised with not only Guilford’s donation, but also additional gear from a fire department in nearby Norwich.

The Stanton Department received 20 sets of turn-out gear, 12 helmets, 25 pairs of boots, a siren box, power boxes, and a couple of light bars. “Mr. Joe was real nice to us to donate that equipment,” Dancy said. “Anything that we can get, we really do appreciate it because we don’t have a whole lot of money to buy gear or equipment.” While both Howard and Dancy described the trip to and back to Stanton as “very long,” both quickly added how worth it was to even make the drive. G u i l f o r d and Norwich’s contributions are a nice surprise, showing that there are still those always willing to give to those who need it. “I’m proud of the fact that there are fire departments out there that would just give to others that don’ t have a lot of money,” Dancy said. “It’s just really nice to see anyone do that.” Some of the Stanton

residents are not only grateful for Guilford and Norwich’s donations, but are also grateful for Dancy and Howard even making the trip. Many would tell you that, Dancy and Howard’s gungho approach to the job does not go unnoticed. “Anything that happens in the area, they’re usually the first ones out there,” Stanton Welcome Center/ Library Director Debbie Sterbinsky said. “And the department, I mean they really do work hard.” “I think we have a great department. At least we’ve got guys out there who will tackle and handle anything in this town,” Stanton Vice Mayor Emma Delk said. “And there aren’t a lot of people who would take the time to drive to New York to pick up equipment for a volunteer fire department. “For all that we’re trying to do here, if I could find more Roberts and Kims, we could make it.”

Off the Beaten Path with Jerry Wilson Unalienable Rights: God’s Endowment We seem to hear a lot these days about the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, etc. While performing our duties and responsibilities to society, we must also remember such words as freedom, basic rights and doing the right things. Apparently, reaching a consensus regarding the current budget, attempts to solve the U.S. debt crisis and addressing the economic woes facing our nation may be responsible for such patriotic concerns. Content within the Declaration of Independence has also become a conversational piece. One of the most quoted statements from the Declaration of Independence is found in the second sentence: “We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” Unalienable rights cannot, under any circumstance, be surrendered or taken because they are a gift of God Himself to the individual. However, unalienable rights are not to be

confused with inalienable rights that cannot be surrendered or transferred without the consent of the one who possesses them. An example of an inalienable right is found in the Biblical account of Esau who sold his birthright to his brother, Jacob. It is agreed upon by most, that these unalienable rights affirm that human beings are capable of governing themselves according to their own free will and take responsibility for their actions. Let’s consider for a moment the subject of free will. When discussing liberty regarding unalienable rights, the word “Freedom” is often inserted instead. While discussing freedom and free will as an unalienable right endowed by God, we should consider their relationship to “freedom of choice,” as taught in the Bible. If we are children of free will, we must consider the Biblical teachings regarding our freedom to make choices. We have the freedom to choose God or other gods, which highway to travel and even which master to serve. Several years ago, I enjoyed the pleasure of working with the late Jack

Knapp who was a former farm agent in a neighboring county. He hosted one of those weekly “how to shows” that assisted the concerned listeners with their problems. One listener called with a mole problem in her lawn. “Mr. Jack,” she said, “Can you give me a sure fire way of getting rid of these moles in my yard?” Jack paused for a moment and came back with a one word answer, “MOVE.” He gave her a choice that was a fool proof option. He suggested that she might sell the house, purchase a yacht and put it on the river. “You may not like the view from your living room window,” Jack said, “You may have other problems but I can assure you that a mole problem won’t be one of them.” Call it free will or freedom of choice. It is a true unalienable right endowed by God that cannot be purchased, sold or even given away. Even when we decide not to make a decision, we have made a choice and must take full responsibility for that decision. Country singer, George Jones, who knows a lot about choices and their consequences, reminds us in the lyrics of his song titled “Choices,” that we live and die by the choices we make.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Star Rating:

We go primal this week as Rise of the Planet of the Apes hits theaters and easily wins the box office battle, and it comes as no surprise. A remake for this franchise has been demanded since the last Planet of the Apes film. And no, I’m not including the crappy 2001, Mark Walhberg installation. Seriously, what were they thinking? That aside, we’ve been waiting for what could be a genuine reboot and this is definitely it. Thought this film is more about plot-building you have to keep in mind that the general synopsis here is the “rise” of the Planet of the Apes, and not some non-stop action packed war film. Though its safe to say that the second half of this movie

8 / 10

is indeed filled to the brim with action. What was interesting in this movie was the story of how the apes came to be the higher evolutionary species and the reasons for the humans dying out. It’s almost like watching an “apocalyptic beginnings” movie but instead of biological experimentation turning us into zombies, the apes become smarter and take over. The acting by James Franco is, as always, superior, but in this particular film he was more of a supporting character to the star of the film: Caesar the ape. Caesar exhibits extraordinary intelligence and is raised in and environment where he is not sure of his standing in the world. When his

interaction brings fear to people he must decide who he is and where he wants to be. Undoubtedly he decides to help out his own species and hence sets off a chain of events that inevitably lead up to apes taking over the planet. As far as storylines go this one was well directed and the CG was phenomenal. I found myself often caring more about the mistreated apes than the humans. It was like I completely forgot that the apes were CG when I watched it. This was a great film and one I would recommend seeing in the theater if you haven’t already. Therefore, I am giving it an eight out of 10. Until next week, I’ll see you at the theater.

Peeples

By 28th Judicial District Circuit Court Judge Clayburn Peeples

Not So Civil Discourse A lot of people are still gasping over the vile sounding struggle between republicans and democrats over the just concluded debt ceiling debate. Most folks don’t follow the workings of congress on a regular basis, and watching the two parties trade gratuitous insults with each other left many Americans repulsed by the vitriol and childish name calling. Both the political and the media classes displayed their worst faces for several days in a row and left the entire nation queasy, at best. They were so juvenile in their insulting of each other, at times it seemed we were watching a gross out contest between Eddie Haskell and Beaver Cleaver. Every day it was a new insult hurled by one side at the other. Some were fairly mild, as when the president accused the speaker of leaving him “at the alter” while negotiating. The speaker shot back that trying to negotiate with the White House was like dealing with a bowl full of Jello. These negotiations, said the president, are like a “three ring circus.” He said it was time to “pull off the Band-Aid and eat our peas.” Both sides accused the other of “moving the goal posts.” The republicans accused the president of “throwing a tantrum.” He told them to “act like adults.” Former speaker Nancy Pelosi accused Speaker Boehner of having chosen to “go to the dark side.” Senator John McCain compared conservative members of his own party to Hobbits, from Lord of the Rings. Former speaker Pelosi said she and her fellow democrats were “trying to save the world” from the republican budget. “We’re trying,” she said somewhat dramatically, “to save life on this planet as we know it today,” suggesting implicitly that the republicans were

trying to destroy it. Vicepresident Biden, said the republicans had acted like terrorists. The national chattering class of columnists chimed in on a daily basis. MSNBC’s Chris Matthews described the debate as “one guy with a knife and the other trying to avoid being cut. It was a thug,” he said, “attacking a victim. It was a mugging!” A New York Times columnist referred to Tea Party republicans as the “Hezbollah faction” of the party. A United Methodist minister congressman from Missouri, described the agreement reached as a “sugar coated Satan sandwich.” Hostile, vitriolic rhetoric flowed nonstop from all quarters as Americans watched with fascinated horror; but hey, as many have pointed out before, “politics ain’t beanbag.” Vicious political insults are as old as the country itself. Thomas Jefferson, for example, called John Adams a hermaphrodite during one election. Senator Stephen Douglas called Abraham Lincoln a “hatchet-faced nutmeg dealer” when they were running against each other. And verbal fireworks weren’t all they hurled at each other in the old days. Actual fistfights and duels sometimes added to the verbal insults and arguments between political factions. Way back in 1798, for example, Congressman Matthew Lyon, of Vermont, accused Congressman Roger Griswold, of Connecticut, of being corrupt. Griswold, in turn, called Lyon a coward, whereupon Lyon spat in his face. Two weeks later, Griswold attacked Lyon on the same floor with a wooden cane and began beating him about the head. Lyon backed up to a fireplace, picked up a pair of fire tongs and used them to disarm Griswold, whereupon the matter devolved into

a fistfight. In 1832, an Ohio congressman, William Stanberry, accused Tennessee Governor Sam Houston of corrupt dealings with Indians. Two weeks later, Houston, on a trip to Washington, attacked Stanbery in the street with a hickory cane. Stanberry, armed with two pistols and a dirk, pulled out one of his guns, stuck it in Houston’s chest and pulled the trigger. It misfired, sparing Houston’s life and altering the course of history. Houston was charged with assault, which set up one of America’s first high profile trials. He hired famous Washington lawyer, Francis Scott Key (Yes, the same one.) to represent him, but was still found guilty. Due to the influence of highly placed friends, however, including future president James K. Polk, he escaped with a reprimand. Stanberry then sued him in civil court and was successful, but again, Houston escaped with a slap on the wrist, a judgment of five hundred dollars, which he refused to pay, choosing instead to head west to Texas in everlasting glory. Another former Tennessean, Missouri senator Thomas Hart Benton, charged toward another senator during a debate with the intent of thrashing him, but the other senator pulled out a pistol at the last second, and Benton backed off. All sorts of physical altercations have taken place as a result of congressional disputes and grievances, one of which, in 1857, involved a fight on the House floor among dozens of congressmen. So as bad as things are today, they once were much worse. Satan sandwiches, sugar coated or not, may sound disgusting, but they are an improvement over beatings and fistfights. Somewhat.

Haywood travels to Covington Friday for jamboree By JEFF IRELAND Sports Editor Those interested in getting an early look at the 2011 Haywood High School football team will get that chance Friday night at the Covington Athletic Field. Six area teams, including locals Haywood, Covington, Munford and Tipton-Rosemark Academy, will take part in the event, which begins at 6:30. Each team will play two 20-minute periods with a running clock. TRA takes on Lausanne first, followed by Munford vs. Haywood and Covington against First Assembly Christian School. Admission is $7.

The Friends of the Elma Ross Public Library are proud to announce Friends Night at the Library on Tuesday, August 16 at 7 p.m. Our guest presenter is Dr. G. Lee Ramsey, Professor at Memphis Theological Seminary. The following excerpt is from the MTS website: A native of Georgia, Lee Ramsey is an ordained United Methodist minister and member of the North Georgia Annual Conference.  He joined the faculty of Memphis Theological Seminary in 1998 to teach pastoral care and preaching.  Ramsey’s scholarly interests

Katherine Horn

include the relationship between pastoral care and preaching, pastoral care in times of grief and loss, and the use of fiction and film to explore the practices of Christian ministry. He serves as the Project Director of Sustaining Pastoral Excellence, a program of the Seminary to support pastors for continued excellence in Christian ministry. Ramsey is the author of Care-full Preaching: From Sermon to Caring Community; Preachers and Misfits, Prophets and Thieves: The Minister in Southern Fiction; numerous articles and reviews in academic and

professional journals; and a contributor to Lectionary Homiletics, Homily Service and Explorefaith.org.  Dr. Ramsey will be talking about his works, especially “Preachers and Misfits, Prophets and Thieves: the Minister in Southern Fiction.” Please join us for a very informative and enlightening evening as we welcome Dr. Ramsey here to the Elma Ross Public Library. Light refreshments will be served. Everyone is invited to attend Friends Night at the Library on Tuesday, August 16 at 7 p.m. Happy Reading!

History will be made and represented Aug. 19 at the Haywood High School football stadium. At halftime of the Tomcats’ season opener against Jackson Central-Merry, hundreds of former players, coaches, cheerleaders, band members and others associated with the football program will be recognized at halftime to commemorate the 100th year of Haywood High School football. Alumni from every decade from the 1940’s to the present will participate, traveling from as far away as California. “People are coming from all over,” said Dr. Robert Rooks, who was a senior on the 1969 Tomcat team that went undefeated. “I talked to a guy who graduated in 1938 who is coming. It should be the biggest sporting event ever held in Haywood County.” Rooks, chairman of the event’s organizing committee, said messages have been

sent via e-mail, letters and Facebook to alumni all across the country. The stadium’s capacity is 3200. “I’m expecting another thousand or two over that,” Rooks said. “We’re asking everybody to get there early.” During halftime representatives from each decade will line up on the field. Balloons will be released and information about the history of Haywood football will be read over the PA system. Those taking part in the event are being asked to meet at a reception tent at 6 p.m. Earlier in the day, from 2 to 5 p.m., alumni will meet in the sports room at the Haywood County Museum to mingle and reflect on the history of the Haywood football program which is, according to Rooks, the sixth-winningest program in the state. To commemorate the event, alumni will receive a framed aerial photograph of the stadium taken over the summer.

In order to make the list students must maintain a 95 or above average. Jessica Chilcutt, Lisa Oglesby and Sharnice Woods.

Holly Grove News Grove News ly Holly Grove News By H.Jones Jones by Martha Martha H. By Martha H. Jones

“I’ll be the Judge of That” was the subject of the message Sunday. What did Jesus mean when He said to stop judging others? He was not talking about in a loving way confronting sins in others that God had already condemned in His word. We are not to have a harsh, critical, judgmental attitude toward others, maximizing our neighbor’s sin and minimizing our own. The speck or splinter in another’s eye may seem very large to us while we overlook the log in our own eye. We are to have a decerning spirit, determining a way to help with a caring and loving attitude. Sometimes the only thing we can do to reach others who have drifted into sin is to pray for them. A skit and reading entitled, “Roman Road” was presented prior to the services by Kathy McClinton, Rebecca Hopper, Casey Long and Britney Goodrich. Kathy Hopper sang the special music, accompanied by her son Jay on the guitar. Jay taught himself guitar in college. He must have gotten his talent from his Nannie Simpson or Uncle Neil Herbert. When the invitation was given, Carla Ferrell made a profession of her faith in Christ and became a

part of Holly Grove. Happy birthday to Marjorie Williams, Peyton Watson, Dennis Hood, Jacob Watson and Shana Blurton. Happy anniversary to David and Sandra Peace and to James and Judy Lewis. Happy birthday to my childhood friend, Jack Fletcher. He will be celebrating his 80th birthday, but he is still young at heart. Jack, Jean and I attended Woodland Grammar School together. He and I sat together on Mr. Everett William’s bus going and coming from school. Jack was a popular young man with lots of young girls interested in him. God blessed us both with our lifetime partners. The sick are on our minds, in our hearts and in our prayers. Betty Barden is doing lots better and attended church Sunday. We rejoice with Justin Climer in the good report he received. Dewey will be undergoing sleep tests this week. Others are Doug Harvey, Glenn White, Lorene Qualls, Fletcher Lewis, Viola Brown, Ted Mann, Ray and Janie Hight, Sandra Posey and Steve Sullivan. We express our heartfelt sympathy to Billy, Brenda and the family of Barbara Drake Stafford. Barbara, a dear friend, and I go back to our days at Wellwood.

She was also among our group of young people from church, who went skating two times a week in Humboldt. Along with this family, keep in your prayers Barbara and Billy’s daughter Betty Friend, who is a very sick young lady. Lorie Jones joined her friend Betra Hinkson and her family last Friday night and went to Whiteville for a meal together in celebration of Betra’s mother, Mary Ann Hinkson’s birthday. Several of our young people at Holly Grove Church will be leaving soon for college, Keith Blackburn to UT Knoxville, Nathan Peace to Union University, Cortney Forsythe to UT Martin, Christine Brown to University of Memphis, Tiffany McCaslin, Ben Norris and Alysen Perry. The Children’s Department, grades 1-6 enjoyed a back to school swim party last Tuesday at the home of Danny and Brenda Simpson. Missionaries, Jay and Anna Pratt, enjoyed a meal with Robert and Betty Barden at a local restaurant last Sunday. Earlier, Jay spoke at the Poplar Corner Church. That afternoon, Pat and Wilma Galloger visited with Robert and Betty. Ike and Olga Sellari and Betty Carol Haynes, visited with Dewey and Martha Jones last week.

Wellwood/ZionNews News llwood/Zion Wellwood/Zion ByBy Denise Phillips by Denise Denise Phillips Phillips

With the daily marathon that we run, are we prepared to face the challenges that come our way? Sunday morning at Zion Baptist Church, Brother Mark Conway used Hebrews 12 and various other Scriptures to focus on “Removing any Hindrances”. What is holding you back from being the Spiritual person that Christ wants? Billy and Diane Wright began their adult class using the “American Heritage” video series Sunday night. What an eye-opener! If you don’t have a Church, Zion would be glad to have you, and you would definitely be enlightened on the faith of our founding fathers. Although the youth enjoyed a movie with snacks, thanks to the owner of the new donut shop for visiting with Jerry Foster and bringing samples for the adults. I’m not sure what Sherry Tritt or Carolyn Frazier did for their classes, but we were delighted! One of our talented youth Kaitlyn Schwarz was part of the entertainment for our State of the Schools convocation Wednesday. Thanks to Christ Church for the use of your facilities and thanks to

HHS Show Choir for the entertainment! Brother Mark Conway reported 17 attended the men’s prayer breakfast Thursday with Billy Linthecum presenting the devotion. Anyone interested in joining this faithful group, come to Zion’s family life center Thursday morning at six. Mike Leigh, they’re still waiting on you! Tommy and Nancy Littlejohn had a wonderful week with grandchildren from Cordova. Zach and Isabella kept them on their toes, but they enjoyed every minute! We have certainly enjoyed our company this week. Charles and Barbara Elrod stopped by Monday afternoon for a short visit on the way to Jackson to celebrate Whitney’s birthday. Tuesday, mama joined Jimmy and me as we went to eat. We then rode through the Hatchie Bottom, while we were waiting for Barbara to repair a printer for me. Thursday, Shelia Williamson stopped by for a few minutes while her husband was attending business across the highway. Mama came back Friday night to spend the night. God has truly blessed us with wonderful family and

friends! Thanks to our son Justin for coming by Saturday morning to weed-eat. He also sprayed so they wouldn’t come back so quick. I managed to get out in the heat and do some yard work and cleaning. One day it will look like a real home! Chris Austin, Joey Drake, Brice Meeks, Marcus Witherspoon and all of their families gathered at Jessie and Norma Austin’s home Saturday afternoon for a back to school party for their children. Norma came home from the hospital to join the fun for a little while, but had to go back when the doctor came in with more bad news concerning Jessie. He had been there since Wednesday night when his foot gaped open after removing stitches. Please pray for Jessie as well as others who are sick, our military personnel and their families, the shut-ins, those who have lost loved ones, and the leaders of our country. Also, pray for Zion’s Fall Revival beginning October 9 through 12. Call me at 772-4257 if you have news. People want to know!

With Marty with MartyWilliams Williams

Love animals? Please go visit our Animal Shelter! Adoptions are so easy! Whoa! School has started! Parents are whizzing everywhere trying to fill in the gapes of the now too-small uniforms and/or buy brand new ones! Children, students and school buses are all over the place now! Brownsville is back in the action and back on the road! A thrilling moment in Haywood County, thanks to the combined efforts of John Finn, former CEO of Haywood Element and Joe Ing, Chamber Executive Director! A new business has opened up in the same location and is called Marathon Heating! Halleluiah! John Finn will be running this also and he has someone there taking applications! Marvelous! That is such a little ‘happy’ in these tough times, isn’t it? My phone and office have been overwhelmed with local interest, in where to get an application! Just so tickled to be able to tell them to head on out to Marathon Heating to get one! Congratulations John and Joe! Awesome work! My friend, Patty Perry and her husband Joe, went to Knoxville last week to be with their daughter Candace and her family. They had a super, big time playing with sweet Ava Claire, who is now 7 months old! She has big blue eyes and… like her mom…very busy! Patty says she wishes she had her here in Brownsville to show her off! We wish you did too! PJ and Sandra Angotti recently got back from spending a few fabulous days in New York City! They met their long time friends, Bill and Lois Smith from Atlanta, their son Michael, from Los Angeles along with Tommy and Terri Smith and daughter Sydney, from Pennsylvania. Michael works for Principal Entertainment as a manager for actors

and actresses. One of his clients, Seth Numrich, plays the lead role in the theater production of ‘The War Horse’, which is playing at the Lincoln Center in New York. They went to the play and afterwards, Michael took them backstage to meet Seth and see the actual horse puppets, which were life-size! Seth was a good sport and didn’t mind the picture taking! The play was outstanding and is coming out as a movie in December! They ate supper at Nica Tratorria and it was the best Italian food they had ever had the pleasure of devouring! PT, Bill and Tommy went to the Yankee’s game on Sunday and were over-themoon since the Yankees won! Michael took all the girls around SOHO and they shopped…as women do! They had coffee right across the street from Kelly Rippa’s apartment house! Amazing! Fifth Avenue was also a shopper’s dream! At the airport, they ran into Jere and Peggy Williamson! When they got stuck on the plane on the tarmac for two hours, guess who they talked to during the wait? Jere and Peggy! What a small world and a great trip! Ms. Joline Williams called me the other night and told me about going to her daughter-inlaw’s, father’s funeral, in Corinth this past week. His name was Jim Bryant from Bells and he was buried in the national Military Cemetery in Corinth. He was married to the former Iris Guinn, who was originally from Brownsville. Ms. Joline was enormously impressed with the Military funeral and the cemetery. She said it looked exactly like the Arlington Cemetery, where all the headstones were identical. She was so overwhelmed with it that she wanted me to mention it in my column! What a lovely tribute to Jim Bryant! Thanks, Ms. Joline!

In July, Jan Cleek and Mary Frances Trottman gave a baby shower for Ashley and Aubrey Rotenbery, at Zion United Methodist Church in Brownsville. Ashley is Jan’s niece and she is Mary Frances Trottman’s granddaughter! Family and friends had a fantastic time! Aubrey Reese was born July 21 at 8:36 p.m. at Methodist Hospital in Germantown. She was 8.5 lbs and 21” long! Congratulations Ashley and Aubrey! Remember Recycling is a humongous improvement, not to mention a moneymaker for our community! If we all recycle our office paper, newspaper, mail, documents and any other kind of recyclables, the recycling plant sells it, and the money goes back into the community! Schools, businesses, homes, churches and clubs can add to the income of Haywood County without buying a thing! Just give us your PAPER! Any questions, call Haywood County Recycling Plant! 772-7975. The Recycling workers will even bring a huge recycle bin out to your school or business and pick it up when it’s full! Now that is what I call service! Recycling couldn’t be easier! I’m already bugging Joe about what day we can do for Christmas at the Chamber! I am wanting to have the Magnificent Haywood High School Show Choir, directed by Michelle Tillman, come and entertain everyone who enters the building! They were so awesome last year! We have to have them come back! They made the acoustics Ring!! It may be just a tiny, tad too early to bug him about this… but…I AM READY!!! Remember to keep that scoop coming! I can NOT do it by myself! You all are doing such a good job keeping me typing! Aroundtownmarty@aol. com or 780-4111.

We had a great day at Allen on Sunday. Andrew, Alicia and Claire joined us for our worship service, and we had lunch together afterwards. Linda Merrick and Harriet Stewart sang a beautiful song for our special music, and Brother Phil delivered a very good message. My grandson, Julian, was injured in a bike accident, fracturing his collarbone and separating his shoulder. He is feeling much better, and has begun this school

term as a sixth grader at USJ Middle School. I know he will have a wonderful year. My granddaughter, Emily, is in the fifth grade, and my granddaughter, Krista, will be a senior at Wellesley. They have grown up so fast. Happy Birthday to Ann Lytle, Ben Davis, Mark Davis, Hal Rodgers, Dale Kendrick, Reece Dew and Darron Byrd. We extend our sincere sympathy to the family of Mrs. Barbara Stafford. Please remember this

sweet family in your prayers. On our prayer list are Jerry Baggett, Martha Crutcher, Carolyn Danley, Liz Evans, Bill Duke, Ann Baird, Fletcher Lewis and Steve White. Our Bible Verse for this week is Psalm 34:15, which states, “The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.” If you have news or prayer requests, please contact me at gail. barden@gmail.com.

Sugar Creek HillvilleHillville - Eurekaton News Creek Hillville Eurekaton News Eurekaton News arSugar Creek RetirementCenter CenterNews News Retirement Retirement Center News By Shirley Tucker, Activity Director

by Shirley Tucker, Activity By Shirley Tucker, ActivityDirector Director Had a great treat this week when the minister at First Presbyterian Church, Pastor Chris McCurdy, came and brought our Sunday afternoon message. Thank you so much, Pastor Chris. Our folks really appreciated you sharing your weekend with us. Monday afternoon, we had a gentleman from Sysco Foods come and share his thoughts on positive living and being a great example to other folks even at our age. Grace Mulligan is a shining example of a positive person here at Sugar Creek. She walks up and down the halls singing as she goes. We always know where she’s at because we can hear her singing. What a joy she is to be around. The Sysco man also brought us a special treat that afternoon when he brought some new cheesecakes (silk tuxedo) for us to try. We told him we’d be his “guinea pig” any day of the week! Amy Moss sent us some gorgeous vases of flowers this week that looked like they were straight off the plane from Hawaii. There

were birds of paradise, bromeliads, ginger, anthuriums, heliconias and lobster claws. They had everything from the islands in it but a pineapple. Speaking of pineapple, there is a new variety called Maui Gold…..sweetest thing you ever tasted. If you ever see one, grab it – you’ll love it. Thanks so much for the flowers, Amy. Laura Richards had a nice surprise this week when her sister, Hilda Wilson, from Collierville and Lanny and Pat Stanley from Germantown, came to see her. They had a good visit. Our residents always love company. If you haven’t come to see your friends lately, please do it this week. They are missing you! It’s nice and cool in here, which is more than we can say for outside Had a fun time Thursday when we played a hot game of charades. Arline Boisvert, Virginia Dickinson, Alystine Hare, Charlotte Jones, “Bo” and David Pope, Grace Mulligan, Irlene Clement, Pauline Sims and I tried to stump

each other with lots of fun song titles. “Bo” loves the game and she decided to make me do one she thought no one would be able to guess. Have you ever tried to act out “Honeysuckle Rose?” I tried …and Arline Boisvert guessed it. Thank the Lord for small favors! Happy birthday to our August birthday folks like Lula Dotson-8/15, LaJeane Black -8/26,Rose Lott – 8/27 and me, myself and I-8/30. “Miss” LaJeane will be 93 years young, but don’t even think about asking how old the rest of us are. Not telling – for health reasons. My health! The other two said they’d kill me if I did. Virginia Dickinson, Barbara McGary, “Bo”/ David Pope, Alystine Hare, Arline Boisvert, Charlotte Jones, Margaret Ann Fletcher, Jessie Howell, Trophy Hawkins and I went to Red Lobster for lunch this week and of course, ate a little too much. Enjoyed every bite. Words of Wisdom: “Avoid cutting yourself when slicing vegetables – have someone else hold the vegetables while you

I need to retract my first statement from last week. After I had written the article, a decision was made to cancel the Farmers Market for this year due to the high heat. Some people do have a little produce to sell. If you are one of them, you are welcome to go down on Saturday mornings and try to sell it. I know there has been two people doing this, but not sure if they’ll keep it up. The Stanton Cannery is back up and running! Check out our FB page for recent photos of the newly renovated building and some freshly canned produce! The Cannery opens at 8 a.m. during the week; call them at 731-548-6222. Head Start began taking applications today, be sure and register your little 3-4 year old. Their school year starts on the 22nd. We were all relieved when Raymond Johnson was located last week! In what seemed like the blink of an eye, there were people (official and unofficial) everywhere ready to look for the

-

elderly Stanton resident who had wandered away from his home. I am not able to properly “Thank” everyone on here who helped, but you know who you are, and Stanton appreciates it! I know I for one, learned a lot that day about procedures and such. Not having been involved in a search and rescue mission before, I listened and learned the process by which things are done. This process can be quite confusing to a family who is ready to roam the woods looking for someone. Once you know the procedures, they make a lot of sense. I think everyone needs to learn these, and a plan may already be in place for that to happen. A few of us also noticed that day how out of shape we are! So when it cools off, a group is making plans to begin a “Walk Group”. We can have more than one depending upon which time of day you want to walk. This is not an official group or anything yet, but we’re seeing

how many of you are interested. The Stanton Welcome Center/Library will collect names and phone numbers and get everyone together. Please call and let us know if you are interested. Our Stanton Volunteer Fire Department received a nice donation of equipment, which included 20 sets of turn out gear from New York. Check out our Facebook page for photos! Our local Constable coordinated with the NY Department to make this possible. Our Fire Chief and another member of our Fire Department made the trip to retrieve the gear! 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.

Who invented air conditioning? I need to find out because many of us would not be walking around now without it. I feel sorry for people and even the animals that are outside. School is in its first week. So many are getting in a schedule of early to bed and early to rise. We have a few birthdays for the month of August.

Aug. 15; and my greatgrandson, Landon Kelly, Aug. 20. Happy birthday everyone!! Darrell Climer had heart surgery last Tuesday and is home now and feeling better. Karen Climer Strong, daughter of Farris and Patsy Climer, will be having her second surgery Thursday, Aug 11, on her shoulder. Karen has been in severe pain from her first surgery eight months ago and another doctor will be performing this second surgery. Let’s just pray that Karen will get better.

Ricky and Betty Scott treated their grandchildren, Trey, Jesse and Andrew Scott to the movie “Smurfs” last Thursday. Then everyone gathered at Pizza Hut for pizza. This was a good way to spend a hot afternoon. Jane Kendrick’s brother, Jim Shelton, will be having heart surgery this week. Jim lives in Los Angeles, CA and always visits here once a year. Thought for the week: “Experience is not what happens to a man, it is what a man does with what happens to him.”

Vicki Williams Williams BybyBy Vicki Vicki Williams

Our Thought for the Week is by Emilio J.M. de Carvalho of Angola as published in the Upper Room Devotional. “In life’s ups and downs, God journey’s with us.” The road of life is difficult and sometimes full of twists. Sometimes we have to go up and go down, go to the right and go to the left. We pass through valleys and climb mountains. Meanwhile, the Lord looks after us during our journey and leads us no matter what part of the path we face each day. This devotion reminds me of the song Lynda Randle sings with the lyrics of “God of the Mountain is the God of the Valley”. We should always remember that God does not forsake us when we get down and out, but that He is up to something. For those inquiring, the Scratch and Dig is still operating at the Community Center. For more information, contact Opal Watson at 254-9295. It was great to have Mary Olive Daglish with us for worship service on Sunday, August 5. Facebookers, have you checked out the

new fast growing group called “You Grew up in Brownsville if… someone commented a group needed to be started for Hillville. Reading the different posts on the Brownsville page sure brings back lots of memories. I bet there would be lots of interesting posts on that page. Randy and Sue Goodman and Travis and I enjoyed lunch at Chickasaw State Park on Sunday, July 31, following worship services. The food was great and so was the fellowship. There will be a community wide old fashioned Back to School Bash for the kids at Mt. Pleasant on Saturday, August 20, beginning at 9 a.m. Kids come on out and join the fun. For more information, please contact Margaret Phillips at 254-2439. There will be breakfast, a bible study, craft, a sack lunch and lots of fun. Birthday celebrations this week include Kyleigh Mullen, Carol Bruce, Bro. Larry Finger, Kelly Martin, Martha Ledford, Joyce Goodman, Ericka Fergie, Billy Austin and Weston Benard.

Prayer requests this week include Mary Austin, Luther and Edna Austin, Sharon Boullion, James Elrod, Carol Bruce, Pat Jordan, Rosie Pentz, Caleb Kirkland, Jesse Austin, Linda Kirkland, Pattie Coburn, Jerry Morris, Carleigh Cannon, Sandra Glover, Camryn Dirl, Ruth Vestal, William Logan, Martha Frye, Jimmy Swain, Sandra Goodman, Leah Scallions, Enid Powell, Darlene Rossen, Fletcher Lewis, Dorothy Bruce, Earline Benard, Shirley Morgan, the military, the nation and the community. Please keep the families of the 22 Navy Seals who were killed in Afghanistan in your thoughts and prayers as well as all of our military personnel. These families have given the ultimate sacrifice, so that each of us could have the freedom we have today. If you know someone who is serving our country now or has served in the past, take the time to thank them for the freedom you have today. If you have news to share, please call me at 772-1885 after 5 p.m. Until next week, God bless.

Thank you volunteers for coming this week: Christ Temple ladies, First Assembly of God church ladies, Mrs. Ann Nuckolls, Ricky Ellington and The Karate Team, Peggy Staggs and all the fashion show members, Community Temple of the Living Church, Bingo ladies and Mrs. Jeannette Rogers. On Monday afternoon, everyone enjoyed Rick Ellington and his team performing karate. It was great! Wow! It was truly a grand performance enjoyed by all! Thanks to all of you! On Tuesday afternoon, Peggy Staggs conducted a fashion show; several of the ladies from the Senior Center and Peggy’s grandchildren were the performers. They were so cute! Some of the

outfits were made from comic paper, newspaper, bubble wrap, tea bags, etc. Thanks to all of you! Great, great! On Wednesday, we had a watermelon social; the 3rd of August was National Watermelon Day. They all enjoyed the fresh picked watermelon. Delicious! Thursday was our August Birthday Party. Our front dining room was filled with music, laughter and singing, as everyone was wishing our special guest a happy birthday. We have eight patients to celebrate an August birthday.

Former Resident’s Trip equals Life-long Dream

By CALVIN CARTER

ccarter@statesgraphic.com

Sometimes, inspiration can come from the unlikeliest of sources, Take former Brownsville resident and Carver High School Class of 1968 Graduate William Zegger, who could easily recall many times sitting in front of the television watching Tarzan. While Tarzan’s adventures may have sparked his imagination like many other children during that time, it also served as inspiration for Zegger to eventually take a special trip overseas. Since that viewing, Zegger, who now resides in Nashville, has always wanted to visit Kenya. “It was always a lifelong dream for me,” Zegger said. Zegger’s dream finally came true last month, as he took a three-week trip to the country. While Zegger was impressed by the breathtaking land and flourishing wildlife, it was the people that really helped make his adventure the “most educational trip.” “I had always wondered if the way Africans were portrayed over here was true,” he said. “I wanted to see for myself the way

TAKE CARE WITH YARD CARE Water your outdoor plants in the early morning, before the sun can burn off moisture. And take care not to over-water. Before starting your sprinkler, step on the grass. If the blades spring back, hold off on watering for a day or two. The average lawn needs only one hour of watering a week.Also, raise your mower blades to the 3-inch setting. Shaggy grass holds moisture longer, requiring less watering.

that Africans lived. It’s definitely not like the same as they are painted over here.” For the most part, Hegger added that the people of Kenya are pretty similar to Americans, noticing that in the rural areas, full of grazing cattle, most people are farmers and besides cattle, they also

raise sheep and goats. In cities like Nairobi, the people live as if they were in any major American city, full of tall buildings, shopping districts and Karaoke bars. In short, Zegger would easily recommend anyone interested in making a trip to Kenya to make plans.
