Heavy storms in Haywood County

Jimmy Duvall

cleared of charges By Calvin Carter Staff Writer

By Staff Writers Samuel McCarver and Calvin Carter The sky has mostly remained a drab slab of grey for the much of the week in Haywood County, as well as the Mid-South. The area has been hit with heavy rain, fierce winds, tornado producing conditions and lots of thunder and lighting. Pictured here is a Haywood County School bus carrying 13 children of varying age, the bus driver and a parental chaperone. In spite of high water signs, the

driver continued down the flooded, Stanton-Koko Road and was swept off the road into a flooded ditch. In addition to the bus, there was also another vehicle swept off the road earlier that day. There were no injuries from the bus incident, however, the driver of the other vehicle was hospitalized at Haywood Park according to authorities on scene. The Brownsville-Haywood County and Stanton Fire Departments were very swift in handling both of the severe incidents. In another flood related incident, a portion of Highway 70 westbound

was found submerged. It isn’t the only area in Haywood County, with reports of the Haywood County Rescue Squad having to get people from their homes via boat. The Brownsville Utility Department has remained busy handling downed power lines. And the city public works department has kept busy handling fallen tree branches and blocked drainages throughout the city. Conditions are supposed to improve today and Friday, however, with clear sunny skies granting a reprieve from the stormy weather of this week.

Stanton Mayor joins international research team

Dr. Allan Sterbinsky By Calvin Carter Staff Writer While many in Haywood County may

know Dr. Allan Sterbinsky as simply the mayor of Stanton, it’s not the only hat that he wears. Sterbinsky has a great

professional career in educational research. For instance, he’s also Director of Research and Accountability at Jackson Madison County Schools. And fortunately, many have taken notice of his expertise, including the International Congress on School Effectiveness and School Improvement. The organization has put together a special 12 member international sub-group that will also include Sterbinsky. “Some of the researchers in this small group were familiar with my work on comprehensive school reform, and they approached me and said ‘Hey look, we’re familiar with your work, we like what you do. You’ve been published in international journals before. What we wanted you to do is join our group as one of two researchers from the

United States and help us as we move this research forward,’” Sterbinsky said. Sterbinsky’s group consists of other researchers from the Netherlands, Germany, Israel, New Zealand, Australia, Canada and Texas. Their focus will be exclusively on the use of data to improve school effectiveness and to improve school data, Sterbinsky noted. It’s research that is perhaps perfect for a changing world that is placing much more emphasis on the thinking abilities of a new workforce. For the Stanton mayor, the research is really about seeing what needs to be done to provide children with the broadest yet focused range of intellectual skills and cognitive abilities.

Eastside Elementary teacher Jimmy Duvall was recently cleared of previous charges brought against him earlier this month, involving providing alcohol to some minors. April 6, at approximately 8:45 p.m., the Brownsville Police Department charged Duvall, 29, at the 300 block of North Bond Avenue with two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, involving

alcohol. Authorities initially reported that the incident occurred at Duvallís resident where they believed two juveniles had been drinking. While the two juveniles involved had been charged with Unlawful Consumption, Duvall wasnít arrested but was cited to appear in court later this month. During his appearance in court on Tuesday April 26, both charges were on the stateís motion.

Highway 70 wreck takes life of Brownsville woman A two-car wreck last week took the life of one woman and injured two others. The wreck took place on Highway 70 near Springfield Road Thursday, April 21, at approximately 1 p.m. and took the life of Brownsville Resident and Elma Ross Library Assistant Director Sherry H. Glidewell. According to a report from the Tennessee Highway Patrol Trooper on the scene, Joe Crook, Glidewell was driving her 2000 model Volkswagen Beetle westbound on Highway 70. For unknown reasons, Glidewell’s

vehicle exited the roadway to the north side. It re-entered the roadway, crossed over centerline into the eastbound lane and impacted with a 2004 model Mercury vehicle, driven by Ripley resident Vernon McBride Jr. Both vehicles exited the roadway to the south side and came to a rest. Vernon, 77, and passenger Linnie McBride, 76 were both injured from the crash. The report doesn’t reveal the condition of those injuries or the reason why Glidewellís car left the road.

Sen. Delores Gresham of Somerville will speak at Decoration Day at Trinity United Methodist Church in Nutbush on Sunday, May 8, with services beginning at 10:45 a.m. Senator Gresham is serving her first term in the Tennessee Senate after having served three terms in the House of Representatives. As Chairman of the Senate Education Committee, she coordinated the Governor’s First to the Top legislation which eventually was successful in the federal government’s Race to the Top competition. She also serves on the Senate Commerce, Labor, and Agriculture Committee and the Transportation Committees. She represents the eight counties of the 26th District in Southwest Tennessee. Both she and her husband, Will are retired lieutenant colonels in the United States Marine Corps. They live on their cattle farm near Somerville. Lisa Voss, whose grandparents are Elizabeth and Louis Taylor, are buried in the cemetery, will provide special music for the Decoration Day service. This special day was started by two

confederate veterans, A.B. Sangster and A.F. Greaves, soon after the War Between the States to honor those who died for their country. Trinity Cemetery Association was organized in 1907, when the ladies brought lunch to the men who were cleaning the cemetery in the spring. Later, the observance of Mother’s Day was combined with the annual event, creating the Homecoming and family reunion that it is today. The cemetery is rich in history with 59 confederate soldiers, one union soldier, and 127 veterans from other wars buried here. The tradition of placing confederate flags on confederate soldiers’ graves, and American flags for veterans of all other wars continues. Members of Trinity Cemetery Association, with Eleanor Rooks serving as President, continue with the same dedication and love shared by the founders over 100 years ago. The pastor of Trinity United Methodist Church is the Rev. Judith Wolfgang. Dr. John English and Mrs. Terry Parks provide piano and organ music. Lunch will be served in the fellowship hall following the service. The public is invited.

TENNESSEE WILDLIFE FEDERATION HONORS STATE’S CONSERVATION LEADERS 46th Annual Conservation Achievement Awards Celebrate the Protection of Wildlife and Habitat

Former Chief Justice Lyle Reid and Dan Hammond, TWF Chairman of the Board NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Each year since 1965, the Tennessee Wildlife Federation (TWF) has honored a select group of leaders in the conservation and stewardship of wildlife and their habitat in Tennessee. “These awards recognize those individuals and organizations that have made truly meaningful contributions to conservation in Tennessee and to TWF,” says Michael Butler, TWF’s chief executive officer. “The great work of our past winners lives on today, and the current generation is building upon those successes. Without their willingness to take action, we would have failed in our mission, and we are proud to honor their contributions.” The 46th Annual TWF Conservation Achievement Awards were held Tuesday, April 19, at the War Memorial Auditorium in downtown Nashville. Butler recognized a number of volunteers who contributed time, talent and resources to the Federation’s successful campaign to amend the state constitution to include a personal right to hunt and fish. Among those honorees was former Chief Justice of the Tennessee Supreme Court Lyle Reid, who helped write the language that ended up on the ballot and is now included in the Tennessee Constitution. “After years of negotiation among the key stakeholders, we needed an impartial authority to re-write the amendment language and testify before the General Assembly, if necessary,” Butler says. “Justice Reid thought about it long and hard, and he decided that he

could do more good by helping us make certain that the amendment was drafted properly. His presence and his knowledge of the law ensured that the newly crafted amendment language would pass the legislature nearly unanimously.” Other winners included: Kathleen Williams of the Tennessee Parks & Greenways Foundation was honored as the Conservationist of the Year for her tireless efforts to ensure that the real estate transfer funds earmarked for conservation remained in the state’s 2010 budget. Boyle Investment Company, Inc. of Memphis was recognized as the Land Conservationist of the Year for their recent donation of a critical 290-acre tract of land for public use that includes more than one mile of river frontage to the Wolf River Conservancy. TWRA Lands Management Biologist Marc Lipner was awarded the Wildlife Conservationist of the Year for his intensive habitat management strategy implemented on TWRA-owned pine plantations. Michael Cain of the Harpeth River Watershed Association was honored as Water Conservationist of the Year for the coordination of dozens of river clean-ups that removed more than 100 tons of debris from the Harpeth after last spring’s historic flood. Foothills Land C o n s e r v a n c y was recognized as Conservation Organization of the Year for the protection of 25,000 acres of rural landscapes around the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

TWRAAquatic Education Coordinator Patricia Miller was celebrated as Conservation Educator of the Year for her implementation of the national Fishing in the Schools program, Tennessee’s free fishing days, the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation’s Take Me Fishing Events and other events and initiatives related to stream ecology and youth and women in the outdoors. Senator Doug Jackson was named Conservation Legislator of the Year for his service to the state on conservation and wildlife-related legislation, his passion for youth shooting sports and his leadership on the constitutional amendment preserving the personal right to hunt and fish in Tennessee. Kevin Hoyt was honored as Forester of the Year for his efforts to conserve Tennessee’s forests through proper management, including highly successful wildlife habitat and sustainable forestry initiatives. Jim Stroud was recognized as Hunter Education Instructor of the Year for his years of tireless volunteerism in the education of the next generation of hunters through the state’s Hunter Education Program. John Barron of B&B Processing in Marshall County was named the Hunters for the Hungry Processor of the Year for his coordination of more than 20,000 donated pounds of professionally processed venison that provided more than 82,000 meals to hungry Tennesseans. The Z. Cartter Patton Award was presented to East Tennessee State University ornithology professor Dr. Fred Alsop for his unprecedented

research in avian taxonomy and natural history, including the publication of several highly regarded identification guides and books on the birds of North America. The Chairman’s Award went to TWF CEO Michael Butler for his leadership of the successful campaign to amend the state constitution to include a personal right to hunt and fish. Nominations came from the Federation’s membership and the general public. In the past, TWF has presented the awards to tireless volunteers, wildlife educators, state employees, key legislators and others who have made a difference in our state. To read more about this year’s winners, visit Presenting sponsors were Bridgestone Americas, the National Wildlife Federation and Packaging Corporation of America. Founded in 1946, The Tennessee Wildlife Federation is dedicated to the conservation, sound management and enjoyment of Tennessee’s wildlife and natural resources for current and future generations through stewardship, advocacy and education.

Global continued from A1 -“Back in the 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, people could go drop out of high school, go to Chicago, go to Detroit and get a job in a factory. And they’d work their 20-30 years and get a good pension and have a good retirement; that was the life. That’s not happening anymore. We have this tremendous amount of technology that is taking over manual labor, and what that’s doing worldwide is putting an emphasis on intellectual capital that we need to further, and also make sure our country is competitive,” Sterbinsky said. “So that being said, countries and educators within the countries are saying that we need to focus on making sure our schools are effective and that we can improve them appropriately to maintain our competitive advantage in the world economy.” “This is literally a fight for survival economically and for competitive advantage,” he continued. “And the area of competition is all about technology and intellectual capital.” The group is also hoping to perhaps view data as an important asset to school improvement. “We’ve got to get people in colleges and universities to understand the importance of data, what data to look at and how to use that data,” he said. Specifically, the definition of data in

this sense is perhaps multifaceted. Data being looked at could range from test or achievement scores to examining any learning or teaching obstacles in the way of students and teachers. The hope, however, is that whatever data is presented will be used proactively. “You could use the data to improve match between students and a teacher’s abilities and also help teachers to use data to help identify what kind of needs these kids have, and how can I best address those needs.” While Sterbinsky joined the group three weeks ago, there hasn’t yet been a lot of opportunity to converse. The sub-group communicates through Skype and email and in ‘English’” as the mayor put it. There is a plan for everyone to meet next January in Sweden though. Still, Sterbinsky is immensely excited to bring his research and data to the collective table, and remains equally excited to hear from others. Hearing an example from him on the differing global ideas on I.Q., it’s already apparent he’s approaching this research opportunity with an open mind. “We [United States] think I.Q. is a static kind of thing throughout one’s life. And part of that is a statistical artifact because what you do is you take the raw score and divide

by the chronological age, which automatically is a built-in formula,” he said. “It keeps people’s I.Q. steady overtime. But other countries are saying that’s not true. We can actually increase people’s cognitive abilities. And Hungary is one that’s saying ‘Are these kids able to read at a grade level,’ much like we say in America, but they are also looking at increasing their creativity, their visual perception rotation and other kinds of cognitive abilities.” Spending a few moments with Sterbinsky, you almost forget for a moment that this is the same man you see at those Stanton Commission Meetings, that is until talk shifts on the Stanton Cannery and its recovery from the latest storms. As said before, the man does seem to juggle a lot. Yet the common thread seems to be a drive to help others in some form or fashion. “So I go from global stuff to ‘My wife stepped in a pot hole, you need to get that fixed,’” he said laughing. “Okay. Whatever we can do to help people.”

Crestview recently held a special luncheon celebration for their many volunteers. The center treated their volunteers to cake, punch and, of course, fellowship to celebrate the countless hours they’ve put into helping. Volunteers took a brief moment from the festivities for a group picture.

By 28th Judicial District Circuit Court Judge Clayburn Peeples

Iris Time in Tennessee It is, as the second of our nearly a dozen or so “official” state songs puts it, “Iris Time in Tennessee,” and aren’t they pretty this year? The iris, the tall bearded, German iris, that is, is our official state flower, and this week, you can see it blooming in nearly every yard in Tennessee it seems. Well, perhaps I’d better back up a bit. The iris is one of our two official state flowers. It is the state cultivated flower, and the story of how it attained that designation is somewhat instructive as to how modern legislatures work. Way back in 1919, someone decided Tennessee needed an official state flower. Other states had officially designated state flowers, and the legislature thought we needed one too. They didn’t care what it was, however, so they passed an official joint resolution that decreed that the schoolchildren across the state be allowed to vote, and choose the official Tennessee state flower. The vote was held, and a clear winner emerged — the purple passionflower. Today, probably, not one Tennessee school child out of 20 could tell a passionflower from a pansy, but in 1919, nearly everyone lived in the country, and back then, passion flowers grew along nearly every road and path, and they were named by the school children of the state as Tennessee’s official state flowers. But country plants don’t always please city people. As the 1920s roared through Tennessee, garden clubs became popular in the towns and cities of the state, and many of the ladies in those clubs became fascinated with an ancient, easy to grow, perennial known as the iris, named after a Greek goddess who reportedly supplied the clouds with water for rain, also known as the goddess of rainbows. She was believed, as

well, to have been tasked with the responsibility of leading the souls of deceased women to the Elysian Fields, and because of that, the Greeks named the purple, spring blooming flowers often planted on women’s graves, Iris, after her. It is not known exactly how or when irises spread beyond the Greek world, but around 1500 BC an Egyptian warrior pharaoh saw some purple irises growing in Syria, and ordered a shipment of them sent back to Egypt where they flourished. Then, two and a half millennia later, Louis VII, of France, saw irises in Egypt during the 12th Century Crusades, and brought them back to France. A stylized version of the iris, the fleur de lis, became the symbol of the French monarchy for the next 600 years, and irises spread throughout Europe. In the early 1600s, they were brought to the Jamestown Colony in America, and they spread across this country as well. Most people who grew them here for the next 300 years didn’t even know what their name was. They simply referred to them as “flags.” They just knew they could be depended upon to provide sweetsmelling purple flowers, year after year, with practically no care at all. Then, some time after 1910, new and larger varieties hit the market in an extremely wide color range, and American gardeners went wild for them, especially in Nashville. The Nashville Iris Association, established in 1931, quickly became nationally known for superior breeding and growing of the iris. So many people in Nashville grew irises it became known briefly as “The Iris City.” It was these iris afficionados who talked the legislature into ditching the passionflower for the iris, and since no one was speaking in



opposition to their plan, the legislature bought it, and in 1933, they named the iris the Tennessee state flower. The passionflower, however, was not mentioned in the resolution, so was it still an official state flower, too? A huge debate ensued, and while no one had complained beforehand, all sorts of people raised objections after the fact. Garden clubs, botanists, teachers, ordinary citizens, and even newspapers protested the change. Still others weighed in, supporting of the legislature’s action. The debate got so heated The Chattanooga Times characterized it as a second “War of the Roses,” this time “the war of the iris and the passionflower.” Two years later, the iris forces won a victory when a second official state song was added to the state symbols list, “When It’s Iris Time in Tennessee.” And slowly, but surely, the iris won the hearts of Tennesseans. In 1949, the National Governors’ Conference was in Gatlinburg, and Governor Gordon Browning managed to find 48 brand new iris purple Fords to ferry the various governors through the mountains during the conference. But the passionflower people were still unhappy, so in 1973, a state senator thrust the legislature into the breach once again by proposing a compromise. We would have two official state flowers. One, the official state wildflower, would be the passionflower. The other, the official state cultivated flower, would be the iris. No color was named, but it is presumed to be purple. That seemed to suit just about everybody. And so do the flowers named after the goddess of rainbows, growing right now in a yard near you, in nearly every color of the rainbow, and more, Tennessee’s official state cultivated flower, the iris.

Not what it seems

When is plant food not plant food or bath salts not bath salts? When the state senate decides to pass a bill prohibiting the sale and possession of them. Recently the senate approved and sent to the governor a bill that will prohibit the sale and possession of methcathinone, a substance that is suppose to be found in the newest hot gas station items “Molly’s Plant Food” and “Rave Bath Salts.” They are of course being sold legally currently. Our state government is hopping to make the sale and possession of the items a drug misdemeanor. This is the first I’ve heard about these two items, and it’s probably why while reading the list of bills being proposed that it easily caught my eye. Why would a plant food or bath salts need to hit the prohibition list? Doing a little research on the “plant food,” it’s easy to see why the ban is being proposed. The plant food—told by the makers not to be intended for human consumption—is filled with white powder, and contains side effects that

are similar to ecstasy and crystal meth. For instance, some that have used the substance have reported feeling euphoric when first ingesting, but being able to stay up for two to three days. Before anyone thinks “wonder drug” the side effects include increased blood pressure, heart rate agitation, hallucinations, extreme paranoia and delusions. And this is just what’s been discovered so far. So exactly how did these two substances manage to fly under the legality radar? The fact is that they’re so new that chemists are still having a difficult time breaking down all of the substances or ingredients. It seems like this would be the perfect opportunity for the makers to put it on the market, disguise it as something else entirely and make profit, while states slowly become wise to their substance. Come to think of it, has anyone even tested this out on their plants? Does it even work? A few other questions do come to mind however. First, how did the merchants not know essentially what they were

selling? Did it not appear suspicious that one little pill was suppose to be this miracle substance for their plants? Did the fact that minors or high school level students were coming in to buy it? Since when did every teenager care so much about botany? I figured the list of importance in a teen’s mind ranged with food, friends, puppy dog love, school and then everything else. And really, does anyone want to do a new type of drug that barely even been broken down as to how it affects the body? Let’s play a game of Russian Roulette while we’re at it. Or have a potato sack race across Interstate 40 because those are just as gamble worthy. Currently, the plant food is illegal in Michigan, North Dakota, Louisiana and Florida. I’m not too sure about the bath salts. But it’s safe bet, that as much attention the state has been putting into lately on combating drugs—meth especially—Tennessee will be joining those four states on the ban.

She also recommends you cut back ornamental grasses to just above their growing crown, divide any thick and overgrown clumps and fertilize established grasses as soon as new growth appears. Lawnmowers should be set on the highest height to mow your ivy, vinca, and monkey grass ground covers to remove old foliage. A d d i t i o n a l recommendations include: fertilize pansies, violas and snapdragons that were planted in the fall. This will boost their spring blooming, says Hamilton. Prune semiwoody perennials like Salvia greggii, lavender, sage, artemisia and Careopteris early in spring. Following these simple tips will bring healthy, beautiful spring flowers.

As we start removing winter mulches from our flower beds as the weather warms, a University of Tennessee horticulture expert says patient gardeners will reap more flowers. According to Dr. Susan Hamilton, director of the UT Gardens, mulch should be pulled off gradually as plants show signs of new growth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The purpose of winter mulch is to act as a protector from sudden changes of temperature and chilling winds, so keep in mind that we can still have temperature fluctuations,â&#x20AC;? said Hamilton. Gardeners should acclimatize plants by removing the mulch over a period of days, allowing the light and air to reach the new growth slowly. It is much better to remove the mulch a little later than to remove it too early. In addition to tending outside beds, gardeners should begin transplanting seeds that were started indoors into their finishing containers and give them diluted fertilizer. If you have a greenhouse, take cuttings of â&#x20AC;&#x153;wintered overâ&#x20AC;? plants such as coleus, chrysanthemums, geraniums and other perennials. Divide and

transplant clumping perennials such as daylily and hosta and fertilize established ones as soon as new growth appears. Hamilton also says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to transplant any free-seeding perennials such as hellebore or coreopsis as they appear. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can start planting tender bulbs and tubers, like gladiola, lilies and dahlias,â&#x20AC;? she says. Sue also said to plant additional bulbs every two weeks until mid-June to ensure a continuous source of blooms. In regard to seeds she urged that you follow catalog or package directions. Winterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s alternating thawing and freezing temperatures can heave plants right out of the ground. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you notice any plants that have heaved, lightly tap them back into the ground with your foot,â&#x20AC;? Hamilton said.

Senator Gresham visits the Family Resource Centers Excitement was in the air when Senator Dolores Gresham toured the Haywood County Family Resource Centers (FRC) on Friday, April 1. Her first stop at the Anderson Center included visiting with Principal Jim Frazier; Art Garrett, School and Community Relations Ambassador; Sharon Clark, parent and former FRC staff member; Ragan Baumheckel, Anderson FRC staff; and Peggy Jackson, FRC Coordinator. The group discussed accomplishments of the past 16 years, as well as plans for the future of the Family Resource Centers. Next, Senator Gresham visited the Haywood Elementary Center where

she discussed programs with FRC staff member Bridget Dancy and met a regular patron and one of the students involved in the “Special Friends” program. This visit was in response to an invitation given to Senator Gresham in Nashville on Tuesday, March 29, when staff from our local Family Resource Centers, along with UT Extension Agent Tennille Short and parents Sharon Clark and Becky Campbell, joined others from across the state to celebrate “FRC Day on the Hill.” This group met with Senator Gresham and Representative Jimmy Naifeh to discuss accomplishments and future goals of the Family

Resource Centers. The Haywood County group was honored to have Senator Gresham make time in her busy schedule for a personal visit. The Family Resource Centers encourage parents’ involvement in their children’s education through the lending libraries and parent meetings. The Centers also coordinate the literacy programs known as “Book Jams” and “Family Reading Wall of Fame” and oversee the “Special Friends” and “Graduation Coaches” mentoring programs. The Family Resource Centers are a team effort of UT Extension and the Haywood County School System.

Stomp the TCAP! Stomp, stomp the TCAP! Students and staff at East Side Elementary welcomed TCAP Week with an old-fashioned pep rally on Friday, April 8. The drumline and color guards from Haywood Junior High were their special guests.

Got gold? Next week, visitors can cash in on antiques, collectibles, gold, silver, coins

Clean out your attics, closets and lock boxes, because the Treasure Hunters Roadshow is coming to Brownsville. Roadshow specialists are in town examining antiques, collectibles, gold and silver. While the Roadshow will accept anything thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old, they will be focusing on: gold and silver coins made before 1964, military items, toys and trains, musical instruments, pocket and wrist watches. Scrap gold is expected to be a popular category this week due to soaring gold prices. Buyers for the roadshow have noticed a tremendous increase in the amount of gold coming

something is gold, bring it anyways and the Roadshow staff will test it for free. Other gold items of interest include gold coins, gold ounces, gold prrof sets and dental gold. Other types of items Roadshow specialists hope to see include old toys and train sets. Archie Davis, the Roadshowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s toy specialist, spoke about some of the top toys getting great offers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Old tin wind-up toys from the late 1800â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s through the 1960â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s are in great demand right now,â&#x20AC;? said Davis, â&#x20AC;&#x153;especially those that are character related. Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, the Flintstones or any other character toys are sought after. Old Buddy L toys from the 1920â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to the 1960â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s are especially in high demand.â&#x20AC;? Basically any toys made before 1965 are wanted. Train sets made by Lionel, Americn Flyer, Marklin and others have the potential to fetch a large sum. Davis also stressed, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Toys with boxes and in mint condition bring sensational prices. Most of the toys that come to the Roadshow are not in per fect shape, but can still bring good prices from collectors.â&#x20AC;? Aboveâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Roadshow specialist, Tony Enright, talks with W h e n s p e c i a l i s t To m a family about the gold jewelr y that they brought in. Fuller was asked what he enjoyed most about working to the Roadshow, and for good reason.

Young Guns defeat national champs at SCTP competition By:Samuel McCarver Sports Writer On Saturday, April 23, the Haywood County Young Guns competed in the Scholastic Clay Target Program competition at Henry Horton State Park in Mississippi. In all, there were four teams competing: Clarksville High School, Battleground Academy, Haywood Young Guns, and a team known as 3@8, the 2010 national champions from Maury County. Battleground Academy and 3@8 sent seven shooters each. Clarksville High was represented by nine and the Young Guns brought ten. The Haywood team consisted of one rookie, Blake Robinson; one intermediate advanced, Hunter Campbell; one collegiate, Morris Tritt; and seven at the high school level. The high school level competitors were Hayden Combs, Hunter Coulston, Robert Allen King, Cara Beth Maddux, Will Taylor, Jake Winters and Hayes Wright. All competitors were divided into three classes: collegiate, high school and junior high. The top three scores from each division on each team were calculated to determine the winning team. “This was Jake’s day,” said Coach Wendel

Combs regarding Jake Winters’ performance. After scoring a 98 out of 100 birds, Jake found himself in a three-way tie for High Over All. He would participate in the shoot-off, but would unfortunately lose, placing third as an individual in the entire competition. However, it is important not to discount Winters for this. In the shoot-off, he competed against two members of the previous national champions, 3@8. Those two would be Hayden Stewart, who was High Over All, and Brian Henson, who finished second. “Not too bad for a ninth grader,” commented Coach Combs. The other top scores from Haywood were Hayden Combs with a 96 out of 100 and a tie between Will Taylor and Robert Allen King with 93 out of 100 each. These, along with Winters’ score, would give the Young Guns the honor of victory with a total score of 287 of 300 possible. That is a hit percentage of 95.67 percent! Reigning national champions, 3@8, would finish second with a final of 279. These two scores are within three birds of last year’s scores at the state tournament, with the outcome being the same. “Another great outing for the Young Guns.

Blake Robinson practices with coach Wendel Combs the Monday after competing in the Scholastic Clay Target Program competition at Henry Horton State Park.

Haywood “Future” Basketball Team Couldn’t be more proud of my athletes!” said Coach Combs. Indeed he should be proud along with the rest of Haywood County. These young gentlemen and young lady work very hard to pour their hearts and souls into each shot they make. They lay their pride and honor on the line in the heat of competition so they can bring them back home for themselves and the rest of Haywood to enjoy. Soon the Young Guns will be competing in the Regional competition. Here is to wishing them the very best of luck.

Coach Terry Wayne Walker and other coaches are on the road again with fourth, fifth, and sixth grade boys traveling basketball. This past Saturday, the team traveled to Charleston, Mo., to compete in the Charleston Hardwood Classic. They were excited to say that the sixth grade team came back with the first place trophy, and the fourth and fifth grade team came in at third place. Also, on April 2, they traveled to Paris to compete in the Paris Hardwood Classic where both teams came in first place on that day. Pictured in front

Bethel - Belle Eagle News

With Marty M Williams

Love Animals? Adopt a pet! Did you all have a spectacular Easter? Our family kind of did it backwards, but it was awesome, nonetheless! We did a “Meet the Fam” thingy at Olive Garden in Memphis, on Good Friday, with as many family members as we could collect. It was a combination of our grandson, Baylor’s ninth birthday, and Easter. I did manage to talk Jim into letting me shop a little bit while he “smelled the wood” at Lowes! Easter brings so many families together for the extended weekend. Friends from all over were seen at the churches, and cars were jamming driveways all over the neighborhoods. It was marvelous! I imagine at every church there were Easter lilies, reunions of friend and families, baptisms, confirmations, new memberships, and beautiful Easter music sung by adults and children’s choirs. We couldn’t have had a more superb day if we had tried, could we? Many of the churches had a Maundy Thursday service and one in particular, sponsored by Union Grove Methodist, performed The Last Supper at the Ann Marks Performing Arts Theater. No doubt, it was extraordinarily moving because our church did it one year, and I was amazed at the talent all these men had been hiding from us all these years! I got an email from a friend, Jody Lea, suggesting I put a note in the column about Rex Bond becoming a member of the staff at Lea & Simmons. He said their phones have been ringing off the hook with people asking about it. Good for you, Rex!

Sad, sad, news last week. Our sympathy goes out to the family of Sherry Glidewell. She was the Assistant Library Director and wife of Allan Glidewell. The whole Glidewell bunch are such good people. My week had been wild and wooly, and then I heard this news. It made my week of ups and downs appear totally unimportant. We will all be thinking about you, Glidewell family. I want to applaud Sam McCarver for stepping up to the plate! Whoa, Sam!! I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but he has taken on the Sports page reporting! If there is anyone of you who don’t know Sam, when you do get to know him, you will get such a kick out of his dry sense of humor! He is a character, and I think he is doing an impressive job on his sports reporting! There are all kinds of weddings gearing up at this time! Knox and Katie, Rachel and Drew, Sarah and Tildon, and Shane and Molly. Whew! There are desserts, coffees, showers, and cookouts everywhere just now for the young folks that are engaged and preparing to walk down that aisle or “jump the broom” as some refer to it! Weddings and babies are just so gorgeous and enchanting, aren’t they? Spring is finally “springing!” I am in heaven! I broke down and decided that spring was absolutely going to hang around, and bought flowers for our house and for the Chamber of Commerce, where I work. That was a milestone after all this gloomy, melancholy weather! A brand new “ToeToe” job was my initiation into spring! Once those toes are out…they are not going back in until fall! Exquisite toes and

dazzling flowers mean I am raring to go! Cinco de Mayo Heritage Celebration will be here before you know it! What an outstanding idea! The BBA is sponsoring this event on May 5, and it should be exciting! There will be music!! Jupiter Stone will be the featured entertainment. The event will also include an art contest, games and food. You’re invited to hook up with your friends and neighbors Thursday evening. The night’s event will take place on the south side of the court square from 6-9 p.m. The “Haywood’s Got Talent” Contest winner will also perform. It should be an incredible evening! For more information call Vickie Cooper at 731772-4477. Brownsville Tour of homes is also coming! Visit some of Brownsville’s historic homes and churches during the Spring Tour of Homes Sunday, May 1. Seven locations will be open from 2-5 p.m., for self-guided tours. Special treats include refreshments at First United Methodist Church and a Flower Festival at Christ Episcopal Church. The Spring Tour of Homes is presented by Hope for Haywood and Habitat for Humanity of Haywood County. All proceeds will benefit local families who suffered loss from the May 2010 flood, and to assist Habitat for Humanity in building homes for those who live in sub-standard housing. For more information, contact Tom Orr, 731225-1728, or Sandra Silverstein, 731-7801354. Keep that SCOOP coming friends! I couldn’t do the column without you! aroundtownmrty@ or 780-4111

Holly Grove News By Martha H. Jones “The Good News” was the subject of the message. Earth’s saddest day came on a Friday, and early on Sunday morning was earth’s gladdest day when up from the grave Jesus came. In this life, when we are met with sadness, we can know as a Christian that the glad day is coming with no sorrow. Fourtynine percent of people interviewed believed that doing good things would get them into Heaven. They will be sadly disappointed if they continue on in that way of thinking. Neither church membership, family ties, doing good deeds, or anything else will make Heaven their future home, only their acceptance of Jesus as Savior and Lord. The resurrection validated Jesus as the Messiah sent from God, and a changed life is the only thing that will validate a person’s faith in the Lord. Prior to the services, Gyrit Kail was baptized. We were happy to have all those visiting with us for the services. The church was near to full. The choir thrilled us as they presented “Crown Him” under the direction

of Tim Fain. Christy Fain was featured and did such a beautiful job. Happy birthday to Ray Castro, Pat Hart, Laura Harvey, Josh Perry, Ginny Fletcher, and B.J. Young. We express our heartfelt sympathy to Allan Glidewell and his family in the death of his wife, Sherry Glidewell. Alan and Debbie Jones returned from a trip from Las Vegas where they attended Bank Technology Conferences having to do with their work at Insouth Bank and the Data Center. Alan said they lost no money at the gaming tables for they made no bets, but they did find time to attend one of the shows, which they enjoyed. Those of our friends and relatives on the sick list this week are Ray and Janie Hight. Ray has been in the hospital with heart problems. Ann Latham is thankful to be home after spending time in the hospital and then taking therapy for a number of weeks. Lucille Hight is home following surgery. Albertine McBride is doing much better. We were glad to see Betty Barden able to be at church. Viola Brown is in

a Jackson hospital. Others to include are Linda Hayes, Doug Harvey, Mary Ann Ballard, Cindy Saveh, Roy Lewis, Kay Jackson, Dorsey Watridge, Fletcher Lewis, and Jeff Grammer. Brent and Jessica Byrd, Luis and Tiffany Rosales, and Dewey and Martha Jones enjoyed a meal and family get-together with Alan and Debbie Jones and Jennifer on Saturday. Congratulations to Holland Aguayo, Nathan Peace, Courtney Forsythe, Tiffany McCaslin, Megan Rye, Ryan Jones, Laura Outlaw, Christyne Brown, Ben Norris, and Keith Blackburn who will be graduating from high school in May. Scott and Vickie Climer and family, Justin and Sandra Climer, and Stephen and Freida Climer and family, and Ed Churchwell were guests of Jean Climer on Saturday night before Easter. The children in grades one through six enjoyed a wonderful time Saturday at the church as their leaders gave them a Resurrection egg hunt, with other fun activities and refreshments.

By Betty Scott Severe wind and rain came through our community last week resulting in some minor damages. A few fallen trees and the under pinning on a house trailer on Sulphur Springs were luckily all the damages. Houses on that road suffered through over eight hours without electricity. I would like to mention a “Happy Late Birthday” to Hazel Day, who turned 80 years old on April 19. Diann Williams reunited with an old friend from Hardy, Ark., last Saturday. They met at the Wolfchase Mall and spent the day together. Bethel Community Church had a full house for Easter Sunday services and many went

home with members of the congregation for dinner. Bill and Jane Kendrick had their children and grandchildren at their home for Easter Sunday. Ricky and Betty had the Scott family at their home for Easter dinner. An Easter egg hunt was enjoyed by the children. Gaylon, Patricia, Emily and Maggie Anne Herron, along with Ruthie and Katie Lewis, visited Libby Kendrick last Sunday at Methodist University Hospital in Memphis. Libby had back surgery and is in a room now recovering. Dana Coulston, my daughter, was released from Regional Hospital last Sunday. Dana suffered with asthma as a

child and for some reason it has returned. We lost a special woman last week after an accident on Jackson Hwy. Sherry Glidewell was killed instantly, and two others in another vehicle were taken to Jackson General Hospital. Sherry worked at our library and always recommended to me good books to read. My sympathy goes to Allan and her three children. I already dread walking into the library. Her family and friends needed her so much, but I guess God needed her more. Thought for the week: “It is just as important to marry the right life as it is to marry the right person.”

Hillville - Eurekaton News By Vicki Williams “The Family of God includes everyone for whom Jesus died.” This is our opening Thought for the Week by Ken Franklin of Michigan as published in the Upper Room Devotional. The Bible teaches us that Jesus accepted the suffering on the cross so that His mercy and sacrifice could reach every sinner, every saint, every criminal, every role model, every abuser, every abused person, and you. God’s love for each of us, and desire to reconcile us is that powerful. How could you not worship such love? Jesus suffered immensely for our sake, and in return all He asks is for us to accept His love and offer ourselves to be transformed by it. I am so glad I am part of His family. Are you a part of His family? Don’t forget the Second Annual Taste of Hillville will be held on Friday, April 29, at the Hillville Community Center. Bro. Butch Westover and the Wildwood Express will be performing. You can sample some of Hillville’s best cooking at this event. There will be a small fee with all proceeds to benefit the Community Center. For more information, you may contact Aleta Bradford at 772-1234 or Margaret Phillips at 2542439. The Mt. Pleasant United Methodist women will meet on Wednesday, May 4, at 6:30 p.m. in the Mt. Pleasant Fellowship Hall. This meeting will include a salad supper and guest speaker. Mt. Pleasant is also getting ready for their annual Homecoming, which is scheduled for May 22. So, go ahead and make plans to attend. The Hillville Community Scratch and Dig is still accepting donations of items or clothing. Whatever your need may be, you can find it at the Scratch and Dig. For more information, contact Opal Watson at 254-9295. Travis, Krystle, and I enjoyed camping at Beech Lake over the Easter holiday weekend. Other than it being a little windy, it was perfect weather for camping. Birthday celebrations this week include Denise Gebhert and Preston Moore. Prayer requests this

week include Lawerence Watson, Lillie Goodman, Samuel Sherron, Rodney Coulston, Virginia Hayes, Wilson Elrod, Rita Elrod, Jimmy Joe Elrod, Jimmy Swain, Prentice Elrod, Norman Kelly, Dustin Milton, Helen Hayes, Sandra Goodman, Leah Scallions, Enid Powell, Darlene Rossen, Fletcher Lewis, Dorothy Bruce, Earline Benard, Shirley Morgan, Carol Bruce, the military, the nation, and the community. A special prayer request is needed for

the family of Mrs. Sherry Glidewell, who was called home on Thursday, April 21, due to an auto accident. Also, please keep the others who were injured in this accident in your prayers. This should remind us all that life can change in an instant. Sympathy to the family of Mrs. Elene Bond in the loss of their loved one. If you have news to share, please call me at 772-1885 after 5 p.m. Until next week, God Bless.

Wellwood/Zion News

Allen News

By Denise Phillips

By Gail Barden

Hallelujah to all who participated in the Easter Cantata Sunday morning at Zion Baptist Church! In the words of Elsie Haynes, “It was wonderful.” All of our children and their families were home for Easter. The Rainey’s were able to attend the musical with us Sunday morning, since they spent the night Saturday. Following our noon meal, we went across the road behind Zion’s seed plant to hide eggs. I can’t believe we didn’t even have enough grass to hide eggs. However, the weather was beautiful, all went well, and everyone had a great day. After everyone left, Jimmy and I went to visit with Tommy and Judy Elrod at Jackson General (their new home it seems). Judy just went home last Thursday, and fell Saturday and broke her hip. She was feeling much better by the time we got there though, because the doctor had replaced her hip and she was loaded with drugs. I could not help but think of a devotional thought that I had read in Kay Arthur’s book,

Lord, Heal My Hurts: “Learn to see every trial-past, present, and future, as part of God’s refining process to make you like Jesus.” Thanks to Lisa Conway for sharing the book with other ladies each Wednesday night. Due to the storms and electrical outages, there was no Wednesday evening services, nor was there a men’s prayer breakfast Thursday morning. Knowing those faithful men, I’m sure they were praying at home! Thanks, men, for your continued commitment to this ministry held at Zion each Thursday morning at 6 a.m. Prayer does work! Although Bradley Emerson was off work at Haywood Company Friday, he and Carter Jones came over and worked all day at our house to continue wiring. Just a few more lights and he’ll be done. Alice Elrod (mama) came over Friday afternoon and ate supper with us, while Norma and Jessie Austin and Allison Witherspoon went to Hayleigh’s ballgame in Gibson. We enjoyed watching “The Walton’s Easter” after we ate.

Saturday, the Rainey’s arrived midafternoon and we went to the skate park in Brownsville. Farah Gibson joined us there, where she and Becky talked while we played with the kids. We went for ice cream and then back home to grill-out. We had a wonderful time catching-up on grandchildren. Michael and Tammy Oliphant recently returned from a weekend in Gulf Shores, Ala. She would not elaborate, but it sure sounded like they had fun! Zion’s WMU are collecting baby wipes and diapers (size 2 and above) for the Galloway Mission Project. They will also meet in the family life center May 12 at 6:30 p.m. Pray for those who are sick, our military personnel and their families, the shut-ins and elderly, those who have lost loved ones, and the leaders of our country. Pray especially for the Glidewell family in the loss of their loved one. My thoughts and prayers have been with them since Thursday. Call me at 772-4257 if you have news. People want to know!

Crestview News Thank you, volunteers, for coming this week: Christ Temple ladies, C C Club, First Assembly of God church ladies, Holly Grove Baptist Church, United Pentecostal Church, Westside Church of Christ, Mrs. Mary Barkens, Bingo ladies, and Mrs. Juanita Austin. Thank you to Westside Church of Christ for all the snack crackers they brought and delivered to each patient’s room. Also thank you to Beth Siler for all the lovely rings she donated for Bingo prizes. We had a great Easter Sunday. Thank you to Rev. C.N. Ricks for the Easter program he

presented that Sunday. Easter is known as the Day of Resurrection, the day that Jesus arose from the dead. What a great celebration, and because of this, we have life, everlasting life. Thank you to Mrs. Dora Mann for the bananas she donated for our fruit bingo on Saturday. We appreciate her thoughtfulness. All the patients enjoyed the Easter egg musical hunt on Good Friday. They all received a special Easter gift; then that afternoon, punch and cookies were served with a surprise visit from the Easter Bunny. Thank you to Mrs. Judy Leath for

all the washcloth Easter bunnies she made for the patients. Cute! Cute! Our patients birthday party will be Thursday, May 5, at 2 p.m. We would like to wish the following patients a very happy birthday: Mr. Cal Davis (5-8), Mrs. Minnie Blue (5-13), Mrs. Arnette Gray (5-18), Mrs. Mary Johnston (5-21), Mrs. Maggie Mathias (5-23), Mr. Billy Rogers (5-25), Mrs. Hattie Lou Watkins (5-26), and Mrs. Janice Springfield (5-30). Thought for the week: “A friend is someone who reaches for your hand and touches your heart.”

Easter is such a beautiful and significant emphasis on life – Christ dying on the cross and rising again three days later so that we could have eternal life. My wish is that everyone had a wonderful weekend with family, and a sincere celebration of Jesus’ resurrection. My family gathered at our home on Sunday evening for dinner together. The children enjoyed an Easter egg hunt, which is always fun for the adults, as well. My family is growing, and I love having children playing around the Barden house. I thank God for our blessings. Easter Sunday was celebrated at Allen with a cantata presented by the choir. It was such a beautiful presentation, and we appreciate all of the hard work. The beautiful flowers in the church on Easter morning were given in memory of Mr. Bill Powell, by Mrs. Betty Powell and family, and

in memory of Mr. Billy Dedmon, by Mrs. Betty Dedmon and family. Happy birthday to our oldest son, Jason, who celebrates his birthday on Saturday, April 30. It is hard to believe that he is 41 years old. Time passes much too quickly. Happy Birthday, Jason, and I hope you have a great day. Senior Adult Day will be celebrated on Sunday, May 1, and lunch will be served to our senior citizens following the morning worship service. Allen youth will be having a yard sale on Saturday, May 7. The yard sale will be at the home of Connie and Johnny Hendrix on Anderson Avenue, across from Christ Church. Please try to attend. Proceeds from the sale will be used for youth camp, which will be June 20-24. Happy birthday wishes, also, to Judy Lewis, Alex Bowers (Patsy’s grandson), Lane

Byrd, Carolyn Boone, Jacob Essary, and Drake Hooper. Happy anniversary to Elizabeth and Tony Scott, Abby and Jason Hooper, and Debbie and Jerry Harwell. On our prayer list are Wanda Dew, Mary Jo Frady, Rose Corkery, Martha Crutcher, Jerry Baggett, Carolyn Danley, Harold Booker, Steve White, Bobby Hooper, Mabel Willliams, Carol Elrod, Joe Edwards, Tammy Bishop, Kamery Dirl, Lisa Hilliard, June Stockoff, Peggy Canady, Harold Booker, Libby Kendrick, and Martha Sargent. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Glidewell family, in the untimely death of Mrs. Sherry Glidewell. Our Bible verse for this week is Matthew 28:6, which states, “He is not here; for He is risen.” If you have news or prayer requests, please contact me at gail. Have a great week.

Stanton News

By Debbie Sterbinsky Don’t forget the Stanton Neighborhood Watch meeting tonight! We’re trying to rekindle this group in time for summer and upcoming events. Try to bring a neighbor with you! Refreshments will be served. The Stanton Cannery is looking much better! Phase I of the Cannery facelift is about complete. We had a small setback last week when a tree fell on the back during a storm, but we’re going to be ok. The Cannery is not yet open, but should be back up and running in May. Last week we attended Adams Chapel Friends and Family Day! Among the speakers were your Mayor Allan Sterbinsky, Vice-Mayor Emma Delk, Minister Floyd Lewis, and their extraordinary guest speaker was Minister Doris Lewis. The Dancyville church was also a part of the ceremony, and everyone enjoyed their special day. Fredonia’s Annual

Cleanup Day went well recently after having to postpone their original date because of rain. Rain and storms have interfered with a lot of things lately, but I guess that is what April is all about anyway. Maybe it won’t be long now until we see some May flowers! Tonya Rivers Mays was in Stanton over Easter weekend. Everyone loves to see Tonya! The Stanton restaurant should be opening tomorrow, that’s the last I heard anyway. It will be called Suga’s Diner. Hours will be from 6 a.m. – 9 p.m. Tuesday – Sunday. We hear the old Stanton Inn building has been totally refurbished for this. Let’s check it out! For more information call 901-409-1587. Don’t forget in another week, Mt. Zion MB Church will be hosting a rummage sale on May 7 in the parking lot on the Highway 70 side of Mt. Zion MB Church beginning at 7 a.m. I hear

they have lots of nice things to sell. The Stanton Animal Ordinance will become effective May 1 (this weekend). This will require registering your dogs with the Town of Stanton and providing properly constructed pens. For details, call the Town Hall at 548-2565. This ordinance deals mainly with Pit Bulls and other dogs declared “vicious.” I’m a bit down today, will be attending the funeral of a good friend later today. We love you, Sherry! 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.

Legislative Briefs By Jimmy Naifeh Speaker Emeritus Naifeh Calls for Adequate Raises for State Employees Budget Amendment would give bigger raises to those who need them the most Speaker Emeritus Jimmy Naifeh this week announced support of an amendment to the state budget that would provide for raises for Tennessee employees that need them the most. “I plan to support an amendment to the state budget that will provide 10 percent raises for those employees that make less than $20,000 per year,” said Naifeh (D-Haywood & Tipton Counties) “These employees are those that do the most vital work for the people of Tennessee. They haven’t had a raise in years, not to mention the fact that their insurance premiums rose this year. That, in effect, was a pay cut.” The amendment would provide that any full-time employee with at least three years of service shall be eligible for: a ten percent raise if they make less than $20,000 per year; eight percent

raise if they make less than $30,000; six percent raise if they make less than $40,000; four percent if they make less than $50,000 and two percent for those that make less than $60,000. Those employees that make more than $60,000 per year will receive the 1.6 percent raise already contained in the current budget bill. “The fact of the matter is a person who makes less than $20,000 per year obviously needs a raise more than someone that makes $60,000. The 1.6 percent currently in the budget doesn’t add much for those that are on the lower end of the spectrum,” Naifeh said. “We want to help people put gas in their tanks, food on the table and clothes on their children’s backs.” House Extends Property Tax Relief to Surviving Spouses of Veterans Bill would include hostile as well as non-hostile deaths to qualify A bill extending property tax relief to the spouses of veterans, who are killed in nonhostile accidents while

deployed, passed the House unanimously, 990, said Speaker Emeritus Jimmy Naifeh. There have been instances in which veterans, who are killed in accidents that are noncombat related, do not receive the same benefits as those who die while in combat. This bill (HB 980), stipulates that as long as a veteran is deployed, the family will still receive property tax breaks afforded those that are mortally wounded in combat. Legislation combating meth use and production continues to progress through House Will increase penalties on meth makers and improve tracking of pseudoephedrine sales A very important bill to address the growing problem of meth use here in Tennessee passed the House Health committee this week, Naifeh said. House Bill 1051 would increase the penalties on meth makers and implement a new tracking system for the purchase of the key meth ingredient of pseudoephedrine-

based decongestants. Under the bill, pharmacies would have to use the National Precursor Log Exchange, which tracks the purchase of pseudoephedrine. The T.B.I. and pharmacies will now update the database every seven days. This would allow pharmacists to determine if persons were buying more than should be allowed as determined under state law. The bill also creates the following penalties: If meth is being made in the presence of a child, the offender will be charged with aggravated child endangerment. A Class A felony if the child is 8 or less; class B if over 8. Buying these decongestants for the production of meth would be a mandatory fine of $1,000 or $2,000 on subsequent offenses. Possession of 15 grams of pseudoephedrine will be considered evidence of the intent to manufacture meth. The bill is expected to pass the House in the coming weeks.

We welcome Sheronda Rogers Green to our “Cook’s Nook” this week. A lifelong Brownsvillian, she’s been married three years to Andre Sr., and they have two children, daughter Skye, and son, Andre Jr. He’s a griller and she’s a side dish maker – they are a perfect team! She’s the Branch Executive Director at the YMCA where she’s helped people lose pounds and inches and get healthier for the last

nine years. Sheronda has loved cooking for years, she and her Mom used to watch Food Network and try new recipes together. The family tradition is being carried on with her and Skye, who is learning to be a sous-chef in the Green household. Sheronda combines healthy nutrition and exercise in the Yellow Polka Dot Bikini program featured at the YMCA now. They have a machine for body

analysis that weighs everything, then they format personalized diets and work out programs with trainers at YMCA for eight weeks, then the participant come back and do the analysis again and see their progress. If you missed this one, the new program is kicking off the first of June. Some of these recipes are NOT on the Yellow Polka Dot Bikini diet, but they are down right delicious, so happy cooking dear readers!

Sheronda Sh d Rogers R Green G

TATER AND ASPARAGUS TOSS 2 strips bacon, chopped 2 tablespoons butter 4 fingerling potatoes (about 1/2 pound), sliced Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 1/4 cup chopped onions 2 cloves garlic, minced 2 scallions, chopped 1 (1 pound) bunch asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice 1/2 lemon, zested In a sauté pan over medium-high heat, add the bacon and cook until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon to a plate. Add the butter to the remaining bacon fat and add the potato slices. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Sauté until crisp on one side, and then toss and cook on the other side until crispy. Add the onions, garlic, scallions and asparagus. Season again gently with salt. Continuously toss until the asparagus are bright green and tender, but still crunchy, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle the lemon juice and zest over top. Toss in the reserved bacon and serve warm.

ULTIMATE BARBEQUE CHICKEN 6 servings BRINE: 2 quarts water 2 tablespoons kosher salt ¼ cup brown sugar 2 garlic cloves, smashed with the side of a large knife. 4 sprigs fresh thyme 6 chicken legs and thighs, bone in, skin on, about 10 ounces each. Orange, lemon, lime and red onion slices In a mixing bowl combine water, salt, sugar, garlic, thyme and fruit and onion slices. Transfer brine to a 2 gallon sized re-sealable plastic bag. Add the chicken, close the bag and refrigerate 2 hours to allow salt and seasonings to penetrate chicken. Meanwhile make the sauce:

ULTIMATE BARBEQUE SAUCE 1 slice bacon 1 bunch fresh thyme Extra virgin olive oil ½ onion, chopped 2 cloves garlic, chopped 2 cups ketchup ¼ cup brown sugar ¼ cup molasses 2 tablespoons red or white wine vinegar 1 tablespoon dry mustard 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1 teaspoon smoked paprika freshly ground black pepper Wrap the bacon around the bunch of thyme and tie with kitchen twine so you have a nice bundle. Heat about 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the thyme and cook slowly 3 to 4 minutes to render the bacon fat and give the sauce a nice smoky taste. Add the onion and garlic and cook slowly for about 5 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients, give the sauce a stir, and turn heat down to low. Cook slowly for 20 minutes to meld the flavors. Once the sauce is done cooking, remove about 1 ½ cups and reserve to serve alongside the chicken at the table. Use the rest to baste the chicken. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Preheat grill pan or outdoor gas or charcoal barbecue to medium heat. Fold paper towel to make thick square, blot a small amount of oil on paper towel and carefully and quickly wipe the hot grates of the grill to make surface non-stick. Take chicken out of the brine and pat dry with paper towel. Arrange chicken pieces on grill and cook, turn once mid-way and cook for 10 minutes. Transfer grill marked chicken to cookie sheet and then place in preheated oven. Cook the chicken for 15 minutes, remove it from the oven and then brush liberally, coating chicken with the barbecue sauce and then return to the oven for 15 to 20 minutes, basting the chicken a second time then cook for a final 15 to 20 minutes. Serve with extra sauce.

MINI FRUIT CHEESE TARTS 24 (2 or 3 inch) prepared tart size crust or mini pie shells (follow heating directions on package) 1 (8 ounce) cream cheese, softened 1 (14 ounce) can Eagle brand sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk) 1/3 cup Realemon lemon juice concentrate 1 teaspoon vanilla extract Assorted fruit (strawberries, blueberries, bananas, raspberries, orange segments, cherries, kiwi, grapes, pineapple, etc.) ¼ cup Bama Apple Jelly, melted In large mixing bowl, beat cheese until fluffy. Gradually beat in sweetened condensed milk until smooth. Stir in lemon juice and vanilla. Spoon equal portions into tart crusts, top with fruit, brush with melted jelly. Chill 2 hours or until set. Refrigerate.

SAUTEED COLLARD GREENS 4 slices crispy fried bacon, drained and broken into pieces 2 bunches collard greens, about 2 pounds 3 tablespoons olive oil 4 garlic cloves, whole 2 quarts chicken broth 1 tablespoon vinegar Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper To prepare the greens: cut away the tough stalks and stems from the collards and discard any leaves that are bruised or yellow. Fill the sink with water and salt, the salt helps to remove any impurities. Wash the collards thoroughly to remove the grit, 2 or 3 times, until the water runs clear. Dry thoroughly. Stack up several leaves and roll up lengthwise in a bundle, cut them into 1-inch ribbons. Repeat until all the leaves are shredded. Heat a large deep skillet over medium flame and coat with the oil. Add the garlic and sauté for 2 minutes to soften. Add the greens and toss well with the oil and garlic. Pour in the chicken broth and cook for 45 minutes to 1 hour until the greens are wilted and tender; take care not to overcook. Season with salt and pepper and bacon pieces and serve.

TORTELLINI MINESTRONE CASSEROLE about 4 servings 1 package (9 ounce) refrigerated three-cheese tortellini 1 (12 ounce) bag frozen mixed vegetables 1 (14 ounce) can diced tomatoes with basil, garlic & oregano, undrained 1 (15 ounce) can great northern beans, rinsed, drained 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce ½ cup water ¼ cup shredded fresh Parmesan cheese Heat oven to 375 degrees. In ungreased 2 quart casserole, mix all ingredients except cheese, cover with foil. Bake 45 minutes. Uncover and stir well, sprinkle with cheese. Bake uncovered 10 to 15 minutes longer or until center is hot and cheese is golden brown.

SUMMER CORN SALAD Ingredients 4 ears fresh corn 2 heads Belgian endive 2 tablespoons olive oil Salt and freshly ground black pepper 1 (3-ounce) bunch cilantro, leaves only 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced 1/4 cup crumbled feta 1/2 lime, juiced 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste Preheat grill. Shuck the corn and cut the endive heads in half lengthwise. Add the corn and endive to a baking sheet or cutting board, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper, to taste. Add the corn and endive to the grill and cook until lightly charred on all sides, about 3 minutes for the endive and 5 minutes for the corn. Meanwhile, in a medium serving bowl, combine all the remaining ingredients. Once cooked, remove the corn and endive from the grill. Slice the endive crosswise into 1/4-inch pieces and add to the bowl. Cut the kernels off the cobs and discard the cobs. Add the kernels to the bowl and stir to combine. Taste for seasoning and adjust, if needed. Serve warm or room temperature.

Exchange Club Carl Perkins Center hosts Parade By Calvin Carter Staff Writer “Peace! Love! And Happy Children!” It was the mantra being heard all around the Scott Street neighborhood Tuesday, April 26, as children, parents and numerous volunteers took to the streets to celebrate Child Abuse Prevention Month. The Exchange Club Carl Perkins Center— already hosted a multitude of events this month—decided to conclude April by holding a special parade. The center chose to have their parade focused on the Scott Street Resource Center. “We are grateful that they chose to have the Scott Street Resource Center in their campaign,” Program Director Karen Jones said. “You know Scott Street is a very good neighborhood, but sometimes it feels like we kind of become forgotten by the community, so we were glad that they chose us.” The parade started with police escort, having happy and energetic children holding various “flower power” like signs, and blasting some of the Beatles hits on a small gray boom box. Afterwards, everyone retired back to the center for refreshments and a word from Brownsville City Mayor Jo Matherne.

The parade started at the Scott Street Resource Center and went through the neighborhood. Mayor Matherne read a proclamation she and County Mayor Franklin Smith signed in earlier this month, proclaiming that both the city and county will observe April as Child Abuse Prevention Month. It’ll remain to be seen if the parade becomes a new tradition in Brownsville. But if that’s the case, the Scott Street Resource Center would love to still be a part of it. “If this becomes an annual thing, we’d love to be a part of this,” Jones said. “It puts out the importance of child abuse prevention and it puts out the awareness of Scott Street.” Photos By Calvin Carter

There were approximately 75 colorful signs used for the parade.

Children weren’t the only ones marching; City Alderman Leon King joined in with other adults.

25 N. Lafayette Ave • 772-8845 An outdoor deck is the crown jewel of many outdoor DIY projects, and will require extensive planning and work. But, because of the digging depth the support posts require and the typical proximity to homes or other structures, the one step you can’t afford to skip is a quick and easy call to 811.
