BY JENNIFER WILLIS The Brownsville Police Department received a call about a man with a gun threatening people on Ferrell Street about 2 p.m. on Friday, August 2. Upon their arrival, officers attempted to contact the man by phone and loudspeaker, but received no response from the suspect. According to press releases from the Brownville Police Department and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations, officers learned that the suspect,


see page 10

42-year-old Larry Keith Petty, was armed with two guns and possibly suffering from some type of mental breakdown. An armored personnel carrier was brought in from a neighboring agency to protect officers who were close to the scene as they attempted to make contact with the suspect. Officers attempted to get the suspect out of the house through several means, including the use of a chemical agent, but were unsuccessful. The officers then used the ram on the front of the armored personnel carrier to force the

door open. When the door was opened at approximately 7 p.m., Petty, who was armed with a shotgun, exited the house and fired at officers. Officers returned fire, and Petty was injured. He was airlifted to the Med, and remains in critical condition. Per protocol, the TBI and the District Attorney General’s office were contacted and asked to conduct an investigation. The TBI does not release the names of officers involved in shootings. No officers were injured during the incident.

Brownsville Mayor Jo Matherne praised the way that City police handled the situation. “They were called to respond to a very dangerous situation, and they utilized all their training and preparedness to keep the incident from escalating even more. They followed procedure all the way down the line, and prevented a very threatening situation from becoming a fatal incident. My hat is off to them, and they deserve the thanks of a grateful public for the very professional way in which this was handled.”

First State Bank plans to expand in Brownsville





recently made presentations to Brownsville and Haywood County, and those presentations have sparked curiosity about

First State’s plans. In a press release, First State Bank states they are committed to Haywood County, and are looking for opportunities to grow in Haywood County. The release also states that the plans are not formal, but they did provide the following statements: “First State is committed to Brownsville and Haywood County. We entered into Brownsville with our First State Finance office in 1998. This was followed by the opening of First State Bank in 2006. First State Mortgage followed in 2010. And finally, we were very pleased to open First State Ag Services in 2012. Our First State team, in Brownsville, currently serves

from two physical locations: 111 Peachtree Plaza (offering finance and mortgage services) and 25 S. Grand Avenue (offering traditional banking and ag lending). Both of our current facilities offer limited options for expansions. Our friends in Haywood County have been very good to us at First State and we appreciate their patronage. We are very pleased that the adoption of our services, in Haywood County, is causing us to look at our current resources and determine our best options for further growth. We are very pleased that both of our Brownsville facilities are fully staffed with 11 full time employees.

We’re very proud of the team we’ve built in Brownsville and our need to expand is greatly reflected on their dedication to this community. Over the past months we have researched property options, in Brownsville, on which to expand. First State has contracted to purchase approximately 1.514 acres on Dupree Street. There are contingencies within our contract that must be completed prior to the actual purchase of the property. Once these items are satisfied and we receive Regulatory approval from FDIC, the see FIRST STATE on page 4

Marathon Heater to permanently close its doors BY JENNIFER WILLIS Marathon Heater, which is located on Morgan Street, will soon close its doors for the last time. According to Mike Wrob, owner of Marathon Heater, the plan is to close the plant at the end of August. “We are discontinuing the product,” said Wrob, “the sales just never reached the level we had hoped.” Marathon’s main facility is in Del

Rio, Texas, and the Brownsville location employees between 30 and 35 people. Those people will soon be without a job, and Wrob expressed his unhappiness about the situation. “I hate this, and it’s a hard thing to do. I would like to let the Brownsville community know how much their support was appreciated though, and I apologize that it did not work out.” Marathon heating opened in Brownsville nearly two years ago.

Valve Replacement Without Open Heart Surgery Helps Gertrue Barr Maintain Her Independence

“TAVR has really been a help to me and I just hope if somebody has heart trouble they do attend to it before they wait as long as I did.”

Gertrue Barr had been marked by her independence — mowing her lawn and taking care off her flowerbeds into her 90s. Then, at age 91, she began to get weak, and needed to rest after walking from one room to another in her home — until she learned about a new heart valve procedure. Gertrue’s Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) procedure was the first ever performed at West Tennessee Heart & Vascular Center in Jackson-Madison County General Hospital. Using the new minimally invasive procedure, a specially trained team of physicians used a catheter to deliver a replacement valve through a artery in her groin. Before this procedure, her heart valve condition would probably have been considered inoperable. Gertrue recovered quickly and a few days later was cooking in her kitchen. “Now I can go all over the house,” Gertrue says. “I do my dusting and my window treating... anything I want to do.”

Get Well. Live Well. Sixty-one-year-old Haywood County resident, Mr. Billy Cason, was admitted to Crestview Health Care and Rehabilitation in the Spring of 2013 after he had suffered a severe stroke. In the weeks prior to Mr. Cason’s admission to Crestview, he had failed two swallow studies and, as a result of the failed studies, had been classified as not being able to have any food by mouth. Under the direction of Speech Language Pathologist Tarcie Serrano, the therapy staff at Crestview provided a specialized therapy to Mr. Cason, known as “Vital Stimulation Therapy”, commonly referred to as “VitalStim” Therapy. Following four weeks of intensive VitalStim Therapy, Mr. Cason returned to have another swallow study and successfully passed. Soon afterwards Crestview Health Care celebrated National Nursing Home Week by having a cookout for the residents and staff. It was on this particular day that Mr. Cason was able to eat his first bite of “real food” since suffering the stroke. Crestview Health Care offers VitalStim Therapy for patients who suffer from Dysphagia, or difficulty with swallowing. VitalStim uses neuromuscular electrical stimulation in combination with traditional speech therapy techniques to stimulate inactive swallowing muscles. The technique aids in helping patients create or relearn functional muscle use patterns necessary to initiate or re-establish swallowing.

Senator Gresham lauds Tennessee’s top ranking in financial literacy

Tennessee one of only seven states to receive an “A” Tennessee ranks top in the nation in financial literacy education according to research done by the Center for Financial Literacy at Champlain College in Burlington Vermont. The Center, which is a partnership among financial institutions, nonprofit

organizations and government agencies to promote financial literacy, recently released a report ranking states efforts to increase the financial capabilities of students. Tennessee was one of only seven states receiving the top grade “A.”

“This is great news for Tennessee,” said Senate Education Committee Chairman Dolores Gresham (R-Somerville), who was the prime sponsor of legislation in 2010 creating the Tennessee Financial Literacy Commission. “I believe our efforts to provide students with

increased financial literacy skills will pay great dividends for our students and their families in the future and help them plan for college expenses.” The Center said Tennessee’s grade was based on the state’s inclusion of personal finance topics in K-12

instructional guidelines, the requirement for financial literacy instruction as a prerequisite to high school graduation, implementation of assessment tests on financial literacy topics, a requirement students must take one semester course requirement in

personal finance before graduation and the creation of the Financial Literacy Commission. For more information about teacher training opportunities or other state financial literacy efforts go to: http://treasury.

Off the Beaten Path with Jerry Wilson

A deer lesson from the deer For years now, deer have always created a traffic hazard in much of my travels. I’ve also noticed that there appears to be a population increase among the deer species. Close encounters of the deerest kind always require special caution. Recently, I encountered an experience that I never recall happening before. The time was about midmorning. The day began with what started out as a minimum amount of rainfall that progressed to a good old fashion downpour. By the time I hit the highway that morning, the sun had peeped through the now clear blue skies. Deer seemed to be everywhere. Eventually, a small herd of deer appeared in the wooded area to my right. Some began to cross the highway immediately in front of me. I came to a halt giving all of them a chance to cross the highway. Concluding that the entire herd had moved on, I proceeded at a very slow pace when another two or three deer arrived on the scene. A younger deer began running in the field beside me and all of a sudden, he made a sudden stop and looked straight at me. He never

moved an inch. I’ve thought about that situation many times and have never understood why that deer stopped and looked in my direction that day. All other times, these critters would have raced across the highway at full speed. A fellow once told me that we don’t run into deer. They run into us. I sometimes believe this, as ridiculous as it may sound. What made him stop in his tracks? Did he stop to check out what was happening on the highway? Was he checking me out? Did he take one look at the car and reach the conclusion that the odds were stacked heavily against him should he decide to take on something of that size? He stood there on the side of the road momentarily before walking off. While heading down the road, I caught a glimpse of the little deer crossing the road in my rearview mirror. It most likely will never be known why the deer reacted as his did, but there may be a lesson to be learned here about life.

Have you ever heard it said, “The grass is greener on the other side?” Some of us who have tried this know that it’s not always so. I remember in my younger days when I got my first store-bought baseball. It definitely was a prize possession. During a baseball game with some of the kids in the community, the ball was knocked over the fence. Naturally, I headed toward the fence in search for my baseball not realizing the challenges to come. I didn’t consider the obstacles involved while climbing over the fence. I made it over the fence after suffering cuts caused by the barbed wire and bruises and a bloody nose after hitting the ground face first. By the way, I didn’t find the ball on the other side. Sometimes, the same can be said about “the other side of the road.” Our desire to cross to the other side may not be the best route. The action of that little deer lets us know that sometimes what could be coming down the road is more important to us than all of our concentration on crossing over to the other side.

I knew it would happen eventually... I have always known in the back of my mind that the day would come when my children would get “too big” for certain things. One day mom and dad won’t be so cool. One day they wouldn’t want me to kiss them and tell them that I love them when I drop them off at school…and the list goes on. But, I wasn’t prepared for the “too big” stage to come so fast. Maybe it is just me because I am a VERY overprotective parent, and try to make sure that my children stay children as long as possible, but I wasn’t prepared for my daughter to be so “grown” on her first day of fourth grade. I take my children to school each morning, and pick them up each afternoon. Since Sarah started pre-school, I have always wanted to walk her in when

I drop her off in the morning. Both years she was at Anderson, she let me walk her inside in the mornings. When she went to Haywood Elementary, she let me walk her in for the first few days, and then for the rest of the year I dropped her off at the side door. I would watch her walk in the door, and about half way to the door she ALWAYS turned to wave and smile. Well, this year that has changed already! As we were getting ready to leave the house Monday morning, I asked her did she want me to walk her in and help her get all of her school supplies to her classroom. She said, “yes, ma’am.” But somewhere in between our kitchen and school, she changed her mind. Now mind you that we live in the city, and it takes about 5 minutes to get to school...

so it didn’t take long for her to decide she was too big for me to walk her in. On the way she said, “Actually mom, I think I can walk myself in.” I asked her if she was sure, and she said, “yes ma’am.” I was so incredibly proud of her for being independent, but, at the same time, was a little heartbroken that she didn’t need me to help her. When we pulled up, she saw her friend Alex walking in with her mom and sister. She asked me to let her out so that she could walk in with them. I agreed, and watched her climb out of the car waving and smiling at Alex. I sat there for a minute and waited for her to turn back and wave to me. But she didn’t. She never looked back. I know she was excited, and I know she’s nine…but I still want her to look back.

Letter to the Editor Being in a small town, without a doubt has advantages and disadvantages. But the advantages far outweigh the disadvantages 9-1. We are so fortunate in Brownsville and Haywood County to have homegrown people with homegrown values serving us. The recent storm damage is a fine example of where the cream rises

to the top. Cooperation between the City and County could not have been better. Southwest, Brownsville Utilities, the Sheriffs Dept., Police Dept. and our City Street and Sanitation Dept. were outstanding. The physical appearance of our city was practically destroyed. But within a week the main entrances to our town were practically a 180

turn around. Although there is still much work to be done, we are so very fortunate to have personnel in charge that put Brownsville first, from the mayor, councilmen, and supervisors. We thank you. Are we fortunate or what? Gordon Perry of Brownsville

The Ford in our past

I noticed a news release last week concerning Henry Ford’s 150th birthday celebration, held at Fair View, the former automobile baron’s estate in Dearborn, Michigan. Ford, of course, is considered to have invented the modern assembly line. Many people erroneously believe he invented the automobile as well, but he did not. He was, however, the first person to build and sell great numbers of them, and over the course of his life, he profoundly changed the course of history. He put the world on wheels when he introduced his famous Model T automobile. I was interested in reading about the meeting because my family and I were at the estate last summer. We were taking a Michigan vacation, and even though the estate mansion is closed to the public, the grounds were open, and we spent the better part of an afternoon roaming around them. Ford was one of the most complex, confounding and controversial figures in American history. On one side of the historical ledger is the self-made man who left his father’s farm at the age of 16 to go to work as a machinist’s apprentice, then later became an engineer with Thomas Edison’s electric company, but whose passion was tinkering with gasoline engines and trying to hook them up to self-propelled vehicles. His boss, Edison, encouraged him, and soon Ford started a company to build and sell cars. It failed. So did the next one he founded, but his third, the Ford Motor Company, founded in 1903, stuck around, and five years later, in 1908, he came up with a car that would change the world - the Model T. At $825, it was affordable, and he managed to lower the price every year. So many were sold (15,007,034 by 1927) that by 1918, one out of every two automobiles in America was a Model T. Sales were so good that in many years the company doubled the previous year’s output, primarily because in 1913, Ford came up with an idea that would revolutionize all industry, everywhere. He began building his cars on moving conveyor belt assembly lines. This enabled the company to realize enormous increases in production and also resulted in all

Model T’s coming off that line being painted black. Before that, Ford buyers could choose from several colors, including red, but black paint dried faster than other colors, thus, the assembly line could move faster if cars were black, and Ford was a fanatic about lowering the price of his automobiles, so all future Model T’s were black. But the next year he did something just as revolutionary. He doubled his workers’ pay to five dollars a day, a hundred and ten by today’s standards, and he shortened the work day to eight hours. Not surprisingly, this caused a mass exodus of Detroit’s best mechanics to Ford’s factory, so competitors had to raise their wages too. Ford was also one of the very few American industrialists of the era who actively hired African-Americans. He even hired women and handicapped men when doing so was uncommon. So that’s one side of the ledger. The other is not so inspiring. In spite of his many good, even heroic qualities, during the 1920’s and 30’s Ford was an unrepentant, anti-Semitic Nazi sympathizer. In the early 1920’s he published a series of newspaper articles filled with hatred for, and lies about Jews that was later published as a four-volume set of books. Those books inspired none other than Adolph Hitler, according to his own words, (He praised Ford in Mein Kamfp.) and Ford’s German factory continued making Nazi war supplies, even into the first year of America’s entry into WWII. In a U.S. Army

report of 1945, Ford’s German factory was described as an “arsenal of Nazism.” It had produced at least a third of all the trucks used by the German army during the war. Hitler’s admiration for Ford was so great he once had Ford’s photograph in his office, and in 1938 he awarded Ford Germany’s highest award for a noncitizen, the Grand Cross of the German Eagle. Benito Mussolini had been the previous recipient of the award. The next year, Ford’s company gave the Fuhrer a birthday present of 35,000 Reichmarks, about $12,000. So how do we combine these conflicting images of one of modern history’s most important figures? Do we cherish the memory of the farm boy inventor who revolutionized travel for all time, who made the wheel do what it was invented to do, or do we shudder with disgust at the memory of one of the most powerful, and allegedly moral, men in America who spread hatred of Jews and tacitly encouraged and admired one of the most evil men in history. What about the Ford who may even have been, in part, an unwitting inspiration for the Holocaust? It does little good to suggest that he was a man of his times and that many other Americans and American companies were also playing footsie with the Nazis up to and even during World War II. When it came to his inventions, Ford was a visionary whose ideas changed the times and brought affordable travel to the modern world. What a terrible, terrible shame his sense of morality was stuck in the dark ages.

Weekly Devotional Instruct those who are rich in this present world not to be conceited or to fix their hope on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly supplies us with all things to enjoy – 1 Timothy 6:17 If I were to say, “Money and security won’t make you happy,” I doubt anyone would disagree. However, if we survey our lives, we see that our happiness is, more often than not, bound up in the things we have, the accomplishments we make, and the blessings we receive. We know it shouldn’t be this way…but it is. We feel bad when things don’t go right and we get comfortable when everything seems perfect. Our lives are like this when we are oblivious to the sinfulness of our hearts and the goodness of God. Our relationship with Him [only through Jesus Christ] is the only source of true happiness. – Not happiness in what He can give me, but happiness in HIM. He gives us all things to enjoy, but the foundation of that joy must be rooted in Him and nothing else. He alone is our hope. Our relationship with Him is our joy. When this is the case, nothing in this universe can take away our peace. Jason Velotta - Christ Church ASSEMBLY OF GOD DANCYVILLE ASSEMBLY OF GOD 13925 Hwy 76 North FIRST ASSEMBLY OF GOD 700 N.

HHS holds Freshman Orientation

Haywood High School came alive Friday afternoon, August 2, as administrators, faculty and staff welcomed more than 200 of the 249 freshmen who began high school August 5. Students and their families met Principal Dr. Jerry Pyron, Vice Principal Michelle Tillman, Assistant Principal Tim Seymour and Career and Tech Director Pam Diebold. Then Mrs. Tillman conducted the activities for the orientation. The HHS football cheerleaders were a part of the program as well as the drum line of the HHS band. Mrs. Tillman introduced students to the teachers and staff and talked to students about attending school at HHS. Homeroom teachers took their students to tour the school and answered their questions, while Mrs. Tillman met with the parents to give them additional information about life at Haywood High. “It was a great meeting,” Mrs. Tillman said. “We enjoyed seeing all the students and their families. We are ready to begin our 2013-2014 school year and welcome these new students to their life as a Tomcat.” Photos submitted

Anderson Curriculum Night

Anderson Early Childhood Center hosted a Curriculum Night Friday, August 2. Pre-school and kindergarten students had the opportunity to meet their teachers, explore their classrooms, and make some new friends. Cookies and juice boxes were available in the cafeteria, and the school’s new principal, Charles Byrum, took the opportunity to meet and greet as many students as possible. The auxiliary teachers set up in the cafeteria (pictured left), and Byrum took a moment to take a picture with a few of his new students (above). This is Byrum’s first year as prinipal at Anderson, but he no doubt has great things in store. He walked the halls giving high fives and shaking hands and welcoming parents and students. Check back in next week’s edition of the Brownsville States Graphic to see all of the work that Byrum has done at the school in an effort to make the school feel more welcoming.

Haywood dominates first scrimmage By JEFF IRELAND Haywood football fans got their first look at the 2013 Tomcats Friday afternoon in Brownsville during a three-way scrimmage with Bolivar and Lake County. Most of Meet and Greet is the 200 or so Friday night The Haywood High fans in attenFootball Meet and Greet dance must will be held tomorrow at have left imas 7 p.m. at the high school pressed football stadium. Hay- the Tomcats wood Middle School scored on players and coaches will touchdowns also be at the event, as will on their first cheerleaders, band mem- three posbers and the ROTC. The sessions and event is free to the public. got into the end zone eight times during the two-hour scrimmage, the team’s first. On the first play of the day against Bolivar, sophomore Will Austin hit senior Equavious Barbee on a 50-yard pass down the sideline and Haywood’s offense never really slowed down. “I thought we played extremely well,” said Ernie Jackson, Haywood’s first-year coach. “They seemed like they were on a mission.” Austin ended up with close to 500 yards passing three TD passes and sev-

eral other players had big days as well. Junior Bryce Young, who played quarterback last year but is now playing running back, scored four times, two rushing and two receiving. Starting from their own 20, it took the Tomcats just nine plays to score on their first possession. Young finished off the drive with a one-yard TD run. After the defense stopped Bolivar, Haywood’s offense took the field against Lake County and scored on just four plays. Young caught a 25-yard pass and ended the drive with an 11-yard TD run. Moments later Haywood’s offense took the field against Lake County again and scored in just three plays. Austin hit sophomore Bo Gillispie on a 23-yard pass in the end zone to finish off that drive. Haywood’s defense was equally as impressive, allowing just one TD on the day. The Tomcats played their second scrimmage of the day Tuesday against Hardin County and are just eight days away from the jamboree. Haywood will take part in Covington’s jamboree on Aug. 16 and will take on Munford at 6:30 p.m. “These guys,” said Jackson, “just enjoy being with each other. They wanted to show who hard they’ve been working.”

Eight starters return for 2013 Haywood girls soccer By JEFF IRELAND jireland@statesgraphic. com The 2012 Haywood High School Lady Tomcats soccer team went 7-10. That win total was more than the program won the three previous years combined. With eight starters returning this year from that squad, secondyear head coach Mixon Moore will be looking to continue the progress. “We’re going to shoot for our first winning season,” said Moore, who said its been more than 15 years since the program has finished above .500. “This is a building process. The girls have come so far.” Junior Eliza Ford returns to lead the offense after scoring 17 goals last season. “We’re looking to have a big year out of her,” Moore said. Other players expected to make major contributions on the offensive side of the ball include seniors Patsy Jameson and Kim Nieto and sophomore Victoria Ramirez. Haywood’s defense was strong last year and figures to continue that trend with the return of

seniors Amanda Tindall (a four-year starter) and Lindsay Long and junior Dannon Eubanks. Moore said he hopes the return of so many starters and continuity with the coaching staff will lead to more success this season. This is the first time in five years that the program has had the same coach for two straight years. During the preseason, the team practiced at 6:30 every morning. “That showed us

who really wanted to play,” Moore said. Most of the team’s players have been playing together for two or three years. “The group we have is very tight-knit,” Moore said. “You can tell already they are very comfortable with one another … Last year they got a taste of winning. If we can get a winning season under our belt this year I think that could set us up for a run at a region championship next season.”

Aris Duncan, a second grader from Bunch, Oklahoma, attended Vacation Bible School at Elm Prairie Baptist Church in Leach, Oklahoma, that was led by Allen Baptist Church. She and her brother, Keaton, later came to Brownsville with her grandparents, Brother Leo and Patty Duncan, to visit while Brother Leo preached for Brother Phil Lovelace on Sunday, Aug. 4. While visiting, Aris enjoyed a trip to the Byrd’s Nest. She is shown holding one of the many fish she caught that day. Photo submitted

fish of all – two days in a row – way to go “A”. Keaton said his favorite thing about Tennessee was ‘fishin’. They hated to go and we hated to see them go, but we’ll keep their family and their church in our hearts and prayers. We had a fish fry at church Saturday afternoon for the senior (and some not-so-senior) members of our church. Lots of great fellowship and delicious food. Thanks to all those who cooked the fish, made the fixins’ and to all who brought side dishes. Linda and Frazier Russell and Sonny and I were honored to be invited to sing at First Baptist Church of Macon (outside Somerville) last Sunday night. Thanks to our friends, Shirley and Jimmy Hoskins, for the invitation. The church family was so gracious and welcoming, and we truly received a blessing. They have a ladies’ trio that is awesome –beautiful harmony and true servants’ hearts for the Lord. Please keep the following folks in your prayer hearts – Debbie Rodgers, Beanie

Keltner, Billy Warf, Linda Merrick, Charley West, Larry Overton, Gillam Howse, Allison Byrum, Peri Ann McCloud, Ronnie Hart, Mike and Robbie Piercey, Zander Young and his family, Marie Baggett (Crestview), Malcolm Spottedcrow (Bro. Leo’s grandson), Blake White, and Todd McBryde (military). Please pray for Miss Jean Black’s family in their separation following her home going. With school starting back this week, please pray for the teachers, administrators, bus drivers, school workers and the kids. Happy Birthday last week to Connie Cobb and Gale Watson (told ya’ll I’d find my calendar). Happy Birthday this week to Ray Poole, Carolyn Jackson, Michelle Russell, Ann Lytle, Ben Davis, Hal Rodgers and Dale Kendrick. Happy Anniversary to Raymond and Brenda Gaters. Finally, here’s Sonny’s “take” on retirement – “Retirement is great – you get to be your own boss and tell yourself to do nothing all day”.

By Vicki Williams Everyone be careful and look out for kids as school has officially began. Good Hope MB Church will have an open house of their new sanctuary on Sunday, August 18. The Mt. Pleasant UMC expansion of the fellowship hall is moving right along. On Sunday, I went to Poplar Corner Baptist Church to visit as their youth group presented the morning worship service. My nephew Hunter Roten gave his testimony and participated in the morning worship service. Might I add this church has a great youth program. Friday, Travis and I enjoyed supper at the T-Bone Restaurant and while we were there we got to visit with my Aunt Barbara Milam and Ron Teter. Several of the Seniors of Harmony Baptist Church enjoyed a trip and luncheon at Bozo’s in Mason last week. The Mt. Pleasant UMC Council met on Monday to discuss the

business of the church. Thursday, the Carl Perkins Exchange Club in Haywood County treated new advisory board members to a luncheon at the Center. I am greatly honored to be asked to be on this board. The Circle of Hope Telethon will be on Sunday, August 11 from 1-9 pm at the Carl Perkins Center in Jackson. The telethon will be aired on WBBJ-TV out of Jackson during that time. Please continue to keep the family of Wes Goodman in your thoughts and prayers. Wes was laid to rest at Mt. Pleasant on Wednesday. Wes is survived by his father Bobby Goodman, his mother Mylinda Davis, grandparents, Sandra and Charles Goodman, Carolyn Yearwood, Anita and Roger Lambert and sisters Anna Goodman, Brittany Goodman, Samantha Hasapis and Jamie Law, two brothers, James Davis and Chris Burns as well as numerous other family members.

Please keep the families ofMrs. LeJeanne Black and Mrs. Luevenia Boyd, in your thoughts and prayers in the loss of their loved ones. Our closing Thought for the Week is by Barb Raveling of Montana as published in the Upper Room Devotional. “Cherish your time with God.” Even though we love God our daily concerns seem to be more fun, so we cut short our time with God. However, the Lord is still here, longing to spend time with us. God delights in our spending time with Him. If you have news to share, please call me at 772-1885, after 5:00 p.m. Until next week....God bless.

By Sylessie Ross It’s back to school time, so let us be mindful of the buses and children during our morning and afternoon commutes. What a wonderful service we had on Sunday morning. And our very own, minister Brandon Wilson was the guest speaker at St. Paul on their youth day with Pastor Billy Johnson. My son Lambert and his wife Susan went to Dover, Delaware to visit Susan’s parents James and Rena Lewis. My grandchildren spent the summer in Washington with Lambert’s sister-in-law Sharon, so they visited her as well and picked the children up. Patricia Meriwether’s daughters, Tanya, Rochelle, and Samantha along with the rest of the family, had her a birthday dinner this past Sunday. Their aunt Pearline Bond said it was so nice. My niece Odessa Smith-Genius’ daughter, Sherricka is ICU in Detroit,

Mi and I want to continue to lift her up in prayer. My hats off to Henry Hardin who is so dedicated to caring for his aunt, Mattie Mae Boyd. He lives with her and takes such good care of her!

Pirtle, Cynthia Bullock, Butch Wilson, John Duckworth Sr., L.C. and Elma Pirtle, Edward Vaulx Jr., Rosie Mae Bond “St. Louis,MO., James Henning “Nashville.” Thought for the week: “One more thing” When you’ve done enough good things, all that’s expected of you, go ahead and do one more thing. Give your life and

your world an unexpected bonus by giving a little extra effort. That one more little thing can make a big difference. It could very well be the difference between just getting by and surging powerfully ahead. If you try to get by with doing as little as possible, you’re guaranteed to struggle endlessly. Instead of seeing how little you can do, choose to be pleasantly surprised, inspired and energized by how much you can accomplish. When the work you must do is finished, don’t stop. You’re on a productive roll, so get a little more value from it. In fact, it feels great to make a difference, so extend that great feeling a little longer. You’ve gotten yourself to a positive, satisfying place, so enjoy it. Once you’ve done everything, do one more thing, just because you can. And enjoy how truly great, and effective, and in control, and alive it makes you feel.

By Sandi Bishop We were so happy to have Bro. Leo Duncan, his sweet wife, Patty, and their grandchildren, Keaton and Aris, with us at Allen this week. Bro. Leo pastors Elm Prairie Baptist Church in Tahlequah, Oklahoma - one of the churches our team from Allen worked with on their recent mission trip. Bro. Leo brought our message Sunday morning while Bro. Phil was away in revival. His message was from Acts 26 when Paul appeared before King Agrippa to plead his case. Paul had come from an amazing transformation on the road to Damascus where the Lord had spoken to him, and he told King Agrippa about this encounter with the Lord. Paul was led to see and understand that if Jesus could save him from his sins, He could save anyone. And that fact is as true now as it was over 2,000 years ago. So tell someone about Jesus and what He can do for them. Bro. Phil, Bro. Leo and Shey took the kids fishing and Aris (who is seven years old) beat out all the boys and men by catching the biggest


Anna Evans, daughter of Lee Ann and Clinton Evans, (one of my former ribbon girls from the Brownsville horseshow) is engaged to be married, October 19! Her fiancé is Duncan McKinnie from Bolivar. Anna is teaching first grade at Haywood Elementary and Duncan is a precision ag specialist at H & R Agri-Power in Brownville. Congrats to the happy couple! Mary Ann Shaw has been a bit busy lately! After our horrendous storm, her street had a 100-year old pecan tree sprawled across her street! Plus, the roof over their bedroom was blown off! After all of the drama, she still found time for Tabernacle and their out-of-town guests at Shaw Camp. Guests were: her husband Lynn’s sister Chloe Shaw Lloyd and her husband Bill and their son Ben, from Jackson, MS; also Bess Shaw Adkins and her son Tom, from Augusta, GA.; Mr. and Mrs. Matt Edwards and their twin children, Matthew and Rose from Whiteville; Mr. and Mrs. Bill Perkins from Jackson and their granddaughter, Kate Perkins from Nashville! Ann and Patrick Mann went to Knoxville a couple of weekends ago for a family reunion with her cousins. On the way home, they stopped in Nashville to pick up Logan and Leah Mann, John and Laura’s children, flying in from Denver. They stayed a week and all of them returned to Denver. Ann and Patrick returned Sunday. They have skied out there for

Gill Kendrick (former Brownsville Police Chief and neighbor) received the Joe Casey Award at the 2013 Annual Conference of Associations of Chiefs of Police. The conference was held in Kingsport. He is now the Chief of Police in Jackson. This award is given in recognition of a police chief who has distinguished himself through character, efforts, guidance, dedication, generosity and concern. Kudos to former Brownsville and current Jackson Police Chief… Gill Kendrick! Tracy Lea along with daughters, Taylor and Emma, traveled to Ft. Jackson, South Carolina, to attend Blake’s graduation from basic training. Chris and Tabitha Call and Blake’s Aunt Melanie Quinton (Tallahassee, Florida) also attended. Everyone had a fantastic and emotional time seeing Blake graduate. Tracy said there wasn’t a dry eye in the house! After graduation, Chris and Tabitha took Blake to Ft. Eustis, Virginia, where he will finish his specialized training! Way to go Blake! Bobby and Lanette Pratt had a BIG time recently! They, along with their children Scott and Janet Ward, Jake and Tammy Barr, and grandchildren, attended the Tennessee Pest Control Association annual meeting, in Sevierville.

Westside News

Holly Grove News By Martha H. Jones “The Church Alive” was the subject of the message brought by Brother Ralph Brown in the absence of our pastor. People don’t attend church automatically today. Beautiful buildings, a big budget with plenty of money, a good reputation and all types of programs will not keep a church alive. Many large cathedrals today are just buildings for tourist to visit. In Texas, oil was discovered on church grounds with plenty of money, but the church is dying. A good reputation in the past doesn’t guarantee the church will not die. None of these will get a person to heaven. Churches grow when people are getting saved and its members are busy telling others about Jesus. We are to love God above all else, trust Jesus as Savior, Obey Him and love our neighbors so much that we tell them about Jesus. This is an urgent message, for our time is running out. Danny Simpson led the music and thrilled us singing “What a Savior!” for special music. Happy birthday to Lorie Jones, Marjorie Williams, Katie McBride, Darian Mullen and Samantha

Kail. Happy anniversary to David and Sandra Peace. Brother Fred and Nancy Campbell conducted “Cousins Camp” last week for nine of their twelve grandchildren, five boys and four girls, ranging in age from four to thirteen. Part of it was like a VBS. They also had many fun times, like attending the Memphis Zoo on one of the days. The sick list this week includes Lynn Coburn, who is scheduled for surgery, Betty Barden, Bobby Perry, Debra Blurton, Ronny Thomas, Leslie and Ginger Warren and Leland Simpson. Others are Louise Autry Fletcher Lewis, Jan Outlaw, Charles Rowland and Sharon Davis. Also include Virginia Taylor, Louise Coleman, Jimmy Grammar, Joann Chapman, Mary Ann Herron and Margaret Ann Fletcher. A bridal shower was given for Christy Houy Garrison and her husband Joey. They were married recently. It was given at the church fellowship hall by some of the ladies of the church. Andrew Simmons recently was among 47 others who took a mission

trip to Haiti, a place of beauty, but the poorest nation in the world with tragic and desperate circumstances. The building of the orphanage and other work there were sponsored by Fellowship Bible Church in Jackson. Andrew showed slides that night and told of the work they did while there. They built a block wall around the orphanage for protection and security, conducted VBS and did carpentry work in the children’s sleeping quarters. The building of the church nearby was also sponsored by the church in Jackson. We claim Andrew at Holly Grove because he married one of our fine young ladies, Casey Long. We were glad to have his parents and grandparent for the service. Ann Faulkner recently returned from a vacation trip to Jacksonville, FL with her sister Brenda Cowan and Brenda’s eight grandchildren, her daughter, and two daughter-in-laws. They attended “Cousin’s Camp.” They stayed in the home of Joseph and Kristin Cowan. Joseph had left for nine months sea duty with the Navy. That was Ann’s first time to see the ocean.

Crestview News

By Mary W. Lewis Hello Dear Readers: I am back on the job again. Ha Ha. Hoping I will be able to make it somewhat interesting to you. Grayson Robinson, son of Craig and Teri, attended the ten day Boy Scout jamboree held in Glen Jean, West Virginia. Grayson is a new freshman at Haywood High and among the many activities at Jamboree, he chose the three mile mountain top, there was a barbecue meal awaiting the participants. His parents were at Memphis Airport at 6 a.m. Thursday to pick him up. He was missed by brothers, Jackson and Eason. There was much neighborly help given following the wind storm almost two weeks ago. One incident involved our good tenants, living on Hooper St. almost immediately, Charles Driver, husband of Tonya Driver, crossed the street with his chainsaw to help Chrowder and Christine Chapman. Alamo Church of Christ hosted their Friends and Family Day Sunday, July 28. Bobbie and Billy Connally attended as guests of their grandson, Justin Connally and Jack and Nell Fox went

invited by son, Jeff and wife, Mandy. Friday night August 3, Alamo had a singing 7:30 to 9 p.m. with scrumptious refreshments, including ice cream, to follow. Jack and Dana Williams were in Colorado Springs, Colorado recently for celebration of his eldest sisters eightyfifth birthday. Since then they joined a tour bus of twenty-four passengers out of Knoxville for an extensive Western trip. Bro. Larry Sweeney and wife, Martha, will be traveling to Greenfield, where he will be conducting a weeklong gospel meeting beginning Sunday, August 4, thru Friday, August 9 at Greenfield Church of Christ. Allan Glidewell and his children, Laura, Seth and Caleb have been traveling in Europe for about three weeks, but will soon be home. Saturday, July 27, was Allan’s birthday. Though phone use is difficult, he was able to call parents, Pat and Ruth Glidewell. Laura Glidewell previously this summer had been to Brazil and other areas with a group of fellow students from Freed-Hardeman University in Henderson

and thoroughly enjoyed it. Think maybe she talked her entire family into this the European trip?? I’ll pose the question. We’re all saddened at Westside due to the passing of a dear and faithful Soldier on the Cross; Jean Black, who died Tuesday morning July 30. She would have been 95 August 26. She died at her home where she lived from girl hood; with son Milton and Kathy his wife as caregivers; these latter years. Also our hearts go out to Bobby Goodman and all his family. His son, Wes Goodman of Williston, near Somerville died suddenly Monday morning July 29 at age 23. He was a certified Nursing Assistant and also a City Commissioner. His stepmother is Susan Mathis Overturf Goodman. Westside “Summer Series” continues through August with a guest speaker each Wednesday evening at 7 p.m. August 14, Justin Paschall Minister of Ripley Church of Christ speaks on “Hell”; August 21, “The Cross” by Cecil Jones of Atoka; Lastly, August 28, “The Resurrection”, Howell Ferguson, Jackson.

UT Ex Extxtetension What about White Pines? By Walter Battle Many people ask me about planting rows of white pine trees in their yards on the property lines. They can usually get these trees in bulk fairly easy. A big problem that shows up 9-15 years later is some of the trees will die within the row. The good folks will then call me and ask “Walter why is this happening?” University of Tennessee Forest Management Professor, Wayne Clatterbuck provided the answer in the April “Forestry, Wildlife, and Fisheries Update” newsletter, wrong tree, wrong place. That explains why some of my clients follow up the aforementioned question with the statement “they grow at my relative’s house in Knoxville or Chattanooga.” He explained that the natural range of eastern white pine is at higher elevations where the climate is cool. The natural range of eastern white pine in east Tennessee is at the

higher elevations of the mountains and northern Cumberland Plateau where mean temperatures average around 65 to 74 degrees F in July. Generally, white pine does not do well in areas prone to drought (which has not been a problem this year). Unfortunately white pine has been planted well west of its natural range in west Tennessee in environmental conditions that are not suited for the long-term survival and growth of the species. White pine does well when moisture is ample, but declines and sometimes dies during prolonged moisture deficits, especially several years of hot and dry weather (extended droughts). Clatterbuck goes on to say that white pines grow best on well-drained sandy loam soils. Heavier clay soils are not conducive to growth and survival of white pine. These heavier soils often occur at the lower elevations and west of its natural range. In summary, be mindful that white pine favors cool

temperatures and adequate moisture. Although white pine tends to do well when environmental conditions are favorable, the tree is not as adaptable to prolonged drought or high temperatures that occur periodically at lower elevations in Tennessee. Often trees are planted and seemingly well-established on sites during favorable weather conditions (cool and moist), however, when hot and dry droughts occur, and especially for successive years, white pines become stressed and die fairly quickly. The professor suggest not to plant white pine on adverse sites outside its natural range. As stated earlier white pine is often used as a screen or property boundary for privacy. Clatterbuck recommends using native evergreen species that can be planted as screens such as hollies (American, Nellie Stevens, or Foster), juniper (eastern red-cedar) and if you must plant a pine choose native yellow pine (shortleaf pine), but not Virginia pine.

What has God called you to do? That was the question Brother Bobby closed with Sunday morning at Zion Baptist Church. He used Moses’ life in Exodus as an example of God using us to do what He wants. God used a simple stick to accomplish His task because He wants our availability! Several of Zion’s members enjoyed fellowship at the lake Sunday night with lots of good food. Thanks to Melanie Thomas who always heads this up and keeps the guys who cook in place, as well as Scottie and Betty Morris who also play a huge part in the fellowship events. Sunday afternoon Jimmy and I joined our son Justin to help Jason and his family move to Dancyville. Mason, Lillie, and Jacob are so excited to move into their new residence. Afterwards, we drove to the Bells Olympic for dinner and found out that David and Teresa Ferrell had been visiting Zion. Since we attend the early service I did not know, but was delighted to hear this. Teachers have been attending Professional Development all week, so Wednesday I enjoyed lunch with a friend Elizabeth Becraft. We

had to play catch-up while eating, but it was great to hear about her summer. She is a wonderful kindergarten teacher at Anderson. Mama (Alice Elrod) came over Monday night and since she needed to do some grocery shopping at Wal-Mart we just happened to eat in Subway on the way out. Thanks to Norma Austin and Jimmy Phillips for helping me organize my classroom Tuesday night. Also, thanks to Jimmy for preparing an excellent homecooked meal before we started working. He even bought me an I-Pad to use this year. Thirteen men attended the prayer breakfast Thursday morning with Harmony’s Pastor Grover Westover leading the devotion. This group meets each Thursday at 6:00 at ZBC and all men are invited to come and join them. Thanks to Brother Butch for the report each week and to all of the faithful prayer warriors! As we were holding Curriculum Night in Haywood County Schools, Norma Austin was bidding farewell to her second graders with a swimming party at the Butterworth’s.

There were twentyfive children and adults and they had a great Friday night. Mark your calendars! Summer Sunday Nights at ZBC continues! Family night on the 11th with no evening services, but youth will have a back to school party, Community Outreach (18th), and Movie Night the 25th. Bible Drillers will celebrate the 9th – 10th. Security training will take place on the 12th as well as Sunday School Leadership Training at FBC Henderson from 6:30 9:00. Continue praying for sick folks and their families, military personnel and families, shut-ins, those mourning loss, and the leaders of our country. I’m not sure about the status of Harold Taylor and family in the loss of their home. This is Sharon Waddell’s brother so you might check with her to see what you could do to help if you can’t get Harold. I was so relieved to hear that Clayton Pinner is home and well. It turns out this little fellow is allergic to peanuts. Call me at 7724257 or email me at phillipsd6@k12tn. net if you have news. People want to know!

Fiber connects businesses, homes to the world

Technicians work to install broadband fiber. Every home and business in this city of more than 65,000 people has access to super-fast broadband Internet powered by optical fiber. Jackson is connected, and it’s catching the eye of industry. Beyond the robust Internet and voice services associated with higher bandwidth, Jackson Energy Authority’s fiber-tothe-home connectivity has cleared the way for advanced online services and applications to come to Madison County. JEA’s customers can now stream highdefinition video, play graphics-heavy games online, move terabytes of data from one office to another, or deliver presentations to colleagues around the world. JEA’s fiber-to-thehome network puts Jackson in the forefront of a growing list of U.S. communities that are building their own fiber optic networks with the fastest Internet access possible, said Jim Ferrell, president and chief executive officer of JEA. Other services based on

digital subscriber line (DSL) technology and cable modems cannot deliver the speed and bandwidth necessary to meet the demands of new applications, such as video file sharing, telemedicine and distance learning, he explained. A d d i t i o n a l l y, as consumers increasingly use socalled “over the top” video services such as Netflix, Hulu and to access movies and other programming, JEA’s all-fiber network provides more than enough bandwidth to support multiple devices operating simultaneously in the home – and avoiding the “buffering” problems that often happen on slower connections. Comparing fiber to DSL and cable modems is like comparing computers to typewriters, Ferrell said. “JEA built this fiberto-the-home network so our community could communicate on a world-class level for education, healthcare and a better quality of life. We built it to support our businesses

Photos submitted that need the latest technology to survive in today’s global market. We built it for our grandchildren.” Optical fiber uses light pulsed by lasers to carry high-bandwidth signals over long distances – from JEA’s switching equipment to a customer’s home or business, said Ben Lovins, JEA’s senior vice president of telecommunications. It’s superior to copper, which can carry high bandwidths only over a few hundred feet before the signal begins to degrade and speeds begin to slow. “Optical fiber has an unlimited capacity,” Lovins said. “In fact, one bundle of fiber cable not much thicker than a pencil can carry all of the world’s current communications traffic. JEA was one of the very first to take fiber to the ‘last mile’ of the network and connect homes and businesses with this next-generation t e c h n o l o g y. ” And fiber is “futureproof,” he said. JEA can upgrade its fiber network with newer electronics and lasers that pulse light faster

when the need arises, without having to replace any of the installed fiber itself. As emerging applications require more and more data, JEA can expand its broadband so residents can enjoy new entertainment technology and businesses can remain competitive. JEA began looking into new ways to provide faster telecommunications in 2000 and determined optical fiber to be the best option. By 2004, the utility delivered fiber-to-the-home to its first customer, and Jackson became one of the first communities in the United States to offer the service. JEA’s broadband network now serves 17,500 homes and businesses in Madison County, providing customers with high-speed Internet, digital cable and telephone services. E c o n o m i c development officials expect JEA’s fiber to attract new industry. In 2010, Jackson’s Tiger Jones Technology Park was identified in a Deloitte Consulting study sponsored by

Tennessee Valley Authority as a primary data center site. The park – near Interstate 40 and U.S. Highway 70 – was one of 12 sites among more than 50 assessed in the study that earned the distinction. “The locations were evaluated for accessibility, strong telecommunications infrastructure, electric power reliability and other characteristics beneficial to data center development,” said Kyle Spurgeon, president and chief executive officer of the Jackson Chamber. “Jackson’s designation as a primary data center site by TVA is a direct result of JEA’s investment in this community and the community’s partnership with both JEA and AT&T. Without JEA’s fiber system and the connectivity to AT&T, we would have very little success in marketing Jackson to companies looking for new data center locations.” Because of Jackson’s fiber, high-tech industries such as Internet search engine companies and financial

transaction processors can realistically move to the community. Data centers create highly skilled jobs with good wages, and the demand for sites like the one at Tiger Jones Technology Park is growing, Spurgeon said. With its fiber-tothe-home network, Jackson is a worldwide leader in the changing telecommunications industry, Ferrell said. The city has been visited by utility companies and government leaders from other U.S. communities and from around the world who see JEA’s system as a model for fiber deployment. “Fiber is the future, and that future is here – in Jackson,” Ferrell said. “Consider us digital pioneers. Jackson didn’t wait for the world to come to us. We did it on our own.” About the Jackson Regional Partnership: The Jackson Regional Partnership is an economic development initiative that represents nine counties — Carroll, Chester, Crockett, Gibson, Hardeman, Haywood, Henderson, Madison and McNairy.
