School is definitely underway now, especially for the little ones at Anderson Early Childhood Center. They are enjoying their new classes and teachers, lunchtime, of course, and lessons

in the classroom. All students can spend time in the computer lab, and one of the most favorite learning activities is putting puzzles together. It’s going to be a great year at Anderson!

Positive behavior pays! East Side Elementary School has initiated a school-wide positive behavior plan that models, teaches, and encourages students to behave positively to get the most our of their daily learning experiences. East Side has four rules: Come prepared, Act respectfully, Take responsibility, and Stay safe. Each area of the school has expectations in place to promote positive behavior that relate to the school-wide rules. The third- and fourth-grade students, along with their teachers, rotated throughout areas of the school, such as the cafeteria, gym, restroom, hallway, and playground, to

demonstrate examples and non-examples of how to behave in those areas. The administrators, guidance counselor, auxiliary teachers, and teacher assistants all joined in to train the students. Mrs. Humphreys says that she is looking forward to a great school year because students know what is expected of them and the school will reward them for their efforts. Throughout the year students will receive links for their classroom compliment chains, Wildcat tokens, and tickets that qualify them for a reward for following the rules as a class and as individuals.

Recognizing “Business in Trouble” Indicators By Walter Battle

Students at East Side Elementary are working hard to achieve good behavior both outside the school and, of course, inside the classrooms. Whether singular or with the rest of the classroom, students can earn rewards for their behavior.

As we continue in these dire economic times, many business owners must determine if their operation is headed for trouble. In the August 26, 2010 edition of the University of Tennessee IPM Newsletter, Farm Management Specialist Chuck Danehower, reported on the indicators that indicate when a business is in trouble. Although these were identified at an agriculture conference, these indicators can be relevant to any business. These were identified by Dr. David Kohl, Professor Emeritus at Virginia Tech at the Mid-South Ag Finance Conference at UT Martin. Signs of a Business in Difficulty Accounts payables/ supplier credits > 10 percent of revenue Constant refinancing of operating loans

Have more than five different sources of credit on balance sheet Danehower suggested for producers to keep these notes and sometime after harvest compare your operation to the guidelines or signs of a business in trouble. He went on to suggest that if some of these fit your operation, then you definitely need to be proactive and do a thorough analysis of your business.
