News of Years Gone By Friday, October 31, 1980 Heavy Vote Expected In Presidential Election Registered voters of Haywood County may visit the polls in their precincts Tuesday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. when they vote for the next President of the United States. In addition to the candidates of the two major political parties, President Jimmy Carter, the Democrat who is seeking re-election, and Ronald Reagan, the Republican nominee, who hopes to get the job, there are eight other independents listed on the ballot. Seventh District Congressman Ed Jones is up for re-election and is opposed by Republican David Campbell of Memphis. Floyd Crain of Ripley is unopposed for Representative for the 79th District. Local Boy Picked TeenAger of the Week Memphis Press Scimitar has selected a Haywood High student as their Teen-Ager of the Week. Al Jeffries Jr., a senior, has been selected. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert A. Jeffries, both of whom teach sixth grade at Anderson School. For the past three years, members of the faculty at HHS have selected him for Who’s Who. As to a career, Al is considering medicine at the moment with UT at Martin as his campus choice. Tough Tomcat Tacklers While the Tomcat offense has scored 280 points against their opponents in eight games, the defense has allowed only six touchdowns and only 824 yards total offense. This compares to Haywood’s total figure of 2,752 yards offense. Doug Taylor has made 64 tackles, David Mitchell, 58, Vince Ellison, 56, and Nevil Hess, 55 of the team total 280. Together with the defense, they have sacked the quarterback 33 times, scored two touchdowns, recovered 12 fumbles and given up only 103 yards per game. Thursday, November 1, 1990 Pressure Treatment-Kay Thomas Haywood County students have a new guide as they wind their way through the tangled underbrush of drug and

alcohol pressure. That guide is Alcohol and Drug Teacher/Counselor Kay Thomas and she brings years of experience and education to the task of helping promote selfesteem in children. It’s self-esteem, Thomas feels, which protects kids from the pull of drugs. In fact, self-esteem can be the key to many others of the socio-psychological problems, which afflict America’s young people. Thomas believes that external pressures of abuse and dysfunctional families contribute to the forces, which “promote addiction in kids.” The best time for educating children about drugs and alcohol is between grades one and three. From fourth to sixth grade, students are ripe for work on self-esteem, and family dynamics. Grades six, seven and eight are the “high risk grades” but they are the grades where intervention can

work. By grades nine through 12, there are kids who have been damaged already by using the substances, which “numb their pain.” Her office is at the central school office on East Main Street. Powell Named Lumberman of the Year The Lumbermen’s Club of Memphis named a Brownsville man Lumberman of the Year on Monday. Railey Powell, chairman of the board of Powell Hardwoods Manufacturing Company, received the Wilson Award at the club’s Wood Products Week luncheon at the Racquet Club. Powell graduated from Haywood High School in 1951. After completing a course at the National Hardwood Inspection School in 1952, he began working in the lumber business. He is active in First United Methodist Church where he has served on several

committees. Powell and his wife, Pat, have two children, Lisa and Wes. Dr. Betty James Addresses NAACP The Haywood County Branch NAACP presented its Annual Freedom Fund Banquet Friday night, October 26 at the Haywood Junior High. The keynote speaker was Dr. Betty James, director of the Regional Liaison Center at the Appalachia Educational Laboratory in Charleston, West Virginia. She is a civil rights activist, author and educator, who received the 1990 Martin Luther King Jr. Living Dream Award. A delicious meal was provided and the fellowship of the evening was an experience that will long be remembered. Thursday, November 2, 2000 Hopes soar for substance-free Haywood High School
