Crime calms down in city By CALVIN CARTER ccarter@statesgraphic.com

Authorities at the Brownsville Police Department may be experiencing a small calm in crime given the coming of the winter season. Whether it’s the cold weather or holiday season, thefts or burglaries seem to be on a calm, compared to the summer and fall seasons. However, this doesn’t mean all crime has ceased in the city just yet. Authorities arrested a Jameel Rashad Bunbury, 23, of the 1400 block of Hatchie Street in connection of an aggravated rape charge. Details on the crime are scarce at the moment, given the investigation, but the incident occurred Saturday November 26 at 1:16 a.m. and may have involved the assistance of a juvenile offender. Bunbury is currently being held in the Haywood County Jail. In other news, a father and son dispute has led to drug charges. Authorities were called out in the North Park area, 6:19 p.m. on Monday, November 28. Authorities arrested Jerry Tucker Jr. on domestic violence against a son, and Forrest Tucker on aggravated assault, possession schedule VI (marijuana) and possession of drug paraphernalia. While both had admitted to drinking before the incident, it is currently unclear if alcohol played a factor into the dispute. It remains unclear what started the altercation between the two. Jerry was taken to Haywood Park Community Hospital and then the Med following the incident, the report said.

Mrs. Claus read Christmas stories to the children after the parade .

Brownsville brings in the Holiday Season

By CALVIN CARTER ccarter@statesgraphic.com “…But where’s Santa Claus?” It was a common question uttered by kids both young and young at heart moments before the annual Children’s Christmas Parade Saturday, December 3. Parents and children had gathered in front of the Haywood County Courthouse for the annual walk, early in the afternoon. It didn’t take long before Mrs. Claus and of course, Jolly Saint Nick arrived on the scene to lead the children in their makeshift march around the court. Weather wise, one probably couldn’t have picked a better day, with the

sun out for most of the day and a slight wind. After the children’s parade, pictures were taken with Santa, while Mrs. Claus read a fun storybook. The children’s parade, though served as a precursor to the big event that evening, the annual Brownsville Christmas Parade, which began at 6 p.m. around the court square. This year included a healthy variety of floats, marchers and vintage vehicles that greatly entertained the crowd. First place float winner went to Sugar Creek Retirement Center, second place went to Keeling Baptist Church, and third place went to Walmart. The Grand Marshall’s Choice for Classic Car went

to a 1952 Ford Victoria owned by Larry Douglas. The County Mayor’s Choice went to a 1940 Ford owned by Wayne McCool. And the City Mayor’s Choice went to 1951 Mercury owned by Larry Douglas. The Brownsville Haywood County Rescue Squad, who wished to extend a huge thanks to all participants in the parade, once again sponsored both Christmas Parades. They wish to thank announcers. Jerry Wilson, Drew Macgruder and Vicky Fawcett, as well as judges Marty Williams of the Brownsville Haywood County Chamber of Commerce, Jody Lea of Lea & Simmons Funeral Home and Debbie Sterbinsky of the Town of Stanton. Thanks also go out to Sonia Outlaw-

Clark, Vice Mayor Carolyn Flagg for distributing trophies to the float and car winners, Chief Chris Lea and the Brownsville Police Department, Sheriff Melvin Bond and the Haywood County Sheriff’s Department, Chief Mark Foster and the Brownsville Fire Department and Brownsville’s own, Tennessee National Guard Unit, the 1175th. And a big special thanks goes out to Santa and Mrs. Claus for taking time out of their busy schedule to come to Brownsville and participate in this year’s parade.

Stanton receives $93,968.40 in books

By CALVIN CARTER ccarter@statesgraphic. com

With education a constant primary concern for resident in Haywood County, it probably goes without saying that children reading books is very important to residents. And that concern might be difficult to solve if access is limited to

books. Yet, thanks to the town of Stanton, access may be something that county children needn’t worry too much about. The town found itself signing up to First Books, a national nonprofit program that distributes books out to children from lowincome families. The books were donated to First Book

Inside

A vehicle collision at the bypass and Highway 70 West , led to a driver being taken to the hospital. The wreck occurredWednesday, afternoon December 7. While it is currently under investigation, authorities think that the driver of a Tennessee Valley Authority Semi-truck, en route to deliver materials to Covington, failed to yield at a stop sign at at the intersection and collided with a dark green Cadillac SLS 32V Northstar going toward Stanton. Authorities initially found the driver of the Cadillac unresponsive, and tried to call in Hospital Wing for assistance. Yet, the helicopter was unable to fly due to weather. Authorities placed the driver of the Cadillac in the ambulance on the scene, and once they warmed her up from the cold weather, and started an I.V., she began responding. The ambulance transported the victim, Jean Cobbs, 86 to Haywood Park Community Hospital and then to Jackson-Madison County General. Her condition was unavailable at press time.

by Random House and Disney Publishing Worldwide, which gave the program, partnered with the philanthropic Gibson Guitar Corp. approximately 100,000 books to be distributed throughout Nashville and surrounding areas, including Stanton. According to Debbie Sterbinsky, the town received word that they would receive see BOOKS page 3

Haywood County experiencing employment relief By CALVIN CARTER ccarter@statesgraphic.com

Could Haywood County finally receive some relief when it comes to unemployment? According to data released from the state, the answer could be a hopeful yes. Recently releasing its latest unemployment

data, the non-seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for Haywood County continued to come in October to 12.7 percent, which was down from September’s 13.5 percent. Last year, Haywood County’s unemployment rate was at 13.4 percent. Things were also looking positive for some of Haywood County’s

neighbors. Madison County is down to 9.3 percent, Tipton County is at 10.1 percent, Crockett County is at 10.6 percent and Lauderdale is at 13.3 percent. Fayette County however, was the only neighbor that experienced a hike, going from 11.2 percent to 14. 1 percent. As far as the

state, Tennessee’s unemployment rate for October fell to 9.6 percent, down from 9.8 in the previous month. All of this may be a reflection of continued hope in the nation. The Associated Press recently reported that last month, the nation’s unemployment rate fell to its lowest level in

more than two and a half years, as employers seem to be trying to hire more in wake of a steady climb for the economy. The Labor Department said that the unemployment rate dropped from 9 percent to 8.6 percent, not being that low since March 2009. Nationally, employers

added 120,000 jobs last month. But there is warning that one reason the unemployment rate is down is due to approximately 315,000 people giving up looking for work and no longer being counted as unemployed.

BOOKS continued approximately 8,000 books from the program. However, the problem of actually acquiring the books presented itself to the town. “Shipping would have just cost too much,” she said. Thanks to some help from Stanton residents and Haywood County Solid Waste Department Director Clinton Neal, a team of residents decided to pick up the books last Thursday, December 1 in Nashville. The near two and half hour trip resulted in $93,968.40 in books. The next day, the books were delivered to

Haywood High School, as members of the Haywood County High School Football team helped unload boxes of books to the library. It is there, that Liberian Julie Dahlhauser will organize the books to determine which books will go to specific grades throughout the Haywood County School System. With roughly 250 children per grade, the surprising amount of books will go a long a way. Some of the books will also go back to Stanton’s Head Start program, as well as the annual charitable Christmas

Baskets. Debbie Sterbinsky, along with Stanton Mayor Alan Sterbinsky and Vice Mayor Emma Delk, wish to spread thanks to Dewayne Duncan, Jeff Boyland, Kim Tinsley, the HHS Football team, Haywood County Mayor Franklin Smith, Clinton Neal and Julie Dahlhauser for their collaborative effort in making this opportunity a success. “I really want everyone to understand that this was a joint effort with all of us working together,” Mayor Sterbinsky said.

A New Location Historic Church moves

By CALVIN CARTER ccarter@statesgraphic.com

Growth is a natural step for success. And although changes must come along with it, the necessity of it to reach for the best is too important to not go along with. This was a thought that greatly applied to Wortham Chapel Baptist Church, built in the Bells community in the late 1800s. The church contains a lot of history within it, obtaining its name from a slave owner before eventually being turned over to new owners. The church has played an essential role historically, for residents in the Crockett and Haywood County area, current Pastor James Johnson noted, listing its importance as a community figure throughout its life. Yet during the latest span of its near 130-year life, the membership began to drop. It was only

recent that the numbers began to erupt. “In the last four years, we’ve grown tremendously,” Johnson, said. “When I came in 2007 there were eight active members. And now we’re at nearly 120 members because we’ve been reaching the community through love.” Johnson’s initial goal at gaining members was to look and “instill values regardless of race and class.” “From my first day being installed, I wanted to go out to the community and gain those who are the least looked at and left out,” he said. “Everybody want to be loved,” he continued. ���Everybody has to be loved. We take an attitude where people know that

they are loved and that God has grace.” For Johnson, Wortham’s goal is to once again become a viable part of the community, helping those not only with their spiritual needs, but also touching on the physical and mental. To Johnson, all three aspects of the human being coincide greatly with each other. Thanks to their approach and growth, the church has moved into a bigger building, to supplement its growth. The church is now located at Alamo, Tennessee at 147 West Street. And with the new building, it’s with great hope that Wortham will continue to reach out and heal people as a whole.

Off the Beaten Path with Jerry Wilson

Keeping the Spirit of Christmas

Peeples

By 28th Judicial District Circuit Court Judge Clayburn Peeples

The Eyes Have It

So I’m walking along with this girl during my freshman year at UT Knoxville, a girl with pretty, soft blue eyes, when all of a sudden she asks me, out of the blue, what I think of her roommate’s appearance. “Humm,” I say to myself, “what’s going on here?” I sort of liked this girl, so I wanted my answer to be just right. But what could the right answer possibly be? Had the two of them had a falling out? Was she jealous? Had she seen me staring at her roommate in the library earlier that day? Well, not really staring at her, just looking at her eyes. She had the most remarkable blue eyes I had ever seen, so attractive that I, like just about every other male in her presence, seemed to be unable to keep my eyes from lingering on hers. But what answer should I give the coed walking beside me? After a few seconds of pretending to ponder her question I decided to give her a truthful (sort of) response, not as every man knows, always a good strategy when answering questions about any woman’s appearance. “She’s O.K.,” I said. “I think she has really pretty blue eyes.” Bad answer! “Boys,” she said, disgust in her voice, “are so stupid! Her eyes aren’t even as blue as mine. She’s wearing tinted contacts.” At the time, I didn’t know there were such things. I’d only known two people who even wore contacts and I’d never heard of tinted ones. I told her that, but she didn’t hear me. She was “sick and tired” she said, of everyone telling her how pretty her roommate’s eyes were when they were really, “barely blue at all.” The next time I saw her roommate, I really stared at her eyes, trying to see if I could tell the color came from contacts, and knowing it did, I could. But it didn’t make them any less attractive at all; it just made her seem that much more alluring, and it amazed me that you could change the color of your eyes at will with contact lenses. Still does. I thought about that long ago introduction to tinted contact lens one day last week when I read about the latest technological advance in eye color. It seems a California ophthalmologist has

discovered a way to turn brown eyes blue. Would you consider changing your eye color if you could do so safely? A surprising number of brown eyed people wish they had blue eyes, and now, apparently they can. The doctor says he has developed a completely safe, painless, 20 second long laser procedure that will change your eye color from brown to blue. It seems that brown eyes appear brown because of brown pigment, called melanin, which forms the top layer of the iris. The iris is the colored part of the eye, and the presence or absence of melanin, and the amount of it is what determines our eye colors. Beneath the outer layer of melanin, all eyes are some shade of blue, and when you strip off that layer you reveal the blue beneath the brown and “change” a person’s eye color to whatever shade of blue is there. The change is permanent, however, so if you take the brown out, you’ll be blue forever. But there is still tremendous excitement over the prospect. Blue eyes have become increasingly rare in America. A hundred years ago, half of all babies born here had blue eyes; now only one out of six does, but the color is as popular as it ever was. (It has been the most popular eye color since at least the Middle Ages.) In a recent survey, some 17% of brown eyed people said they would change their eye color to blue if they could do so safely, and another 35% said they would consider doing so. By contrast, only four percent would change their eyes to brown. Why? What is it about blue eyes that captures people’s attention so? Some people say humans like the color blue in everything, because it signifies positive things in our lives. Blue skies mean good weather; blue water means smooth sailing and safe drinking, and babies have blue eyes, so perhaps it signifies youth as well. But not everyone likes blue eyes. Because humans are the way they are, there is a long-standing debate over whether blue and brown eyed humans are inherently different. Stereotypes have developed over the centuries. Brown-eyed people are thought by some to be more gentle and trustworthy than

lighter eyed people, blue-eyed people more youthful and innocent than others. Greeneyed people, especially females, are thought to be feisty and mysterious, while grey eyes bespeak wisdom and gentleness. So the old sayings go, but we all know there is nothing to those old stereotypes. We know a person’s eye color makes no difference at all. Don’t we? Well, it turns out that some pretty provocative studies have been done regarding eye color. (And they are all race neutral, by the way.) Some of them suggest that there are real differences between blue and brown eyed people. Among children of the same race, for example, blue-eyed kids are more behaviorally inhibited than their brown eyed playmates. Among children who stutter, blue-eyed children’s speech is more severely affected. In professional baseball, blue-eyed pitchers outperform brown-eyed ones, but brown-eyed batters out hit their lighter eyed teammates. On the basketball court blue-eyed hoopsters are better free throw shooters, but brown-eyed players have higher field goal percentages. It seems (and “seems” is the operative word here) that light eyed individuals perform better than darker eyed players at sports requiring delay, self-pacing and non-reactive activity, sports like bowling, golf, pitching or throwing a ball or other object at a target. Darker eyed athletes are better at behaviors requiring speed, sensitivity or reactivity, sports like boxing, defensive football or hitting a baseball. Brown eyed people run faster and are bolder as children. They are less likely to abuse alcohol than blue-eyed people are, but they don’t study as much and they aren’t as good at taking tests. So do you believe any of this stuff, or do you think it’s all a bunch of hooey? Some do; some don’t. I don’t know what I think about it all, but I think people would be wise to leave their eyes the color the master artist painted them. And hey, here’s something everybody agrees on; eyes that smile are pretty in every shade and hue. Aren’t we lucky that’s a color we can all wear.

I was recently sent a short story or illustration that brought home situations that are far too numerous in our society. It revolves around the way we sometimes treat others and even those we supposedly love. If you’ve heard this before, perhaps it will be worth hearing again. The following is titled a “Tale of the Wooden Bowl.” “A frail old man went to live with his son, daughter-in-law and fouryear-old grandson. The old man’s hands trembled, his eyesight was blurred and his step faltered. The family ate together at the table, but the elderly grandfather’s shaky hands and failing sight made eating difficult. Peas rolled off his spoon onto the floor. When he grasped the glass, milk spilled on the tablecloth. The son and daughterin-law became irritated with the mess. ‘We must do something about father,’ said the son. ‘I’ve had enough of his spilled milk, noisy eating and food on the floor.’ So the husband and wife set a small table in the corner. There, Grandfather ate alone while the rest of the family enjoyed dinner.

Since Grandfather had broken a dish or two, his food was served in a wooden bowl. When the family glanced in Grandfather’s direction, sometimes he had a tear in his eye as he sat alone. Still the only words the couple had for him were sharp admonitions when he dropped a fork or spilled food. The four-year-old watched it all in silence. One evening before supper, the father noticed his son playing with wood scraps on the floor. He asked the child sweetly, ‘What are you making?’ Just as sweetly, the boy responded, ‘Oh, I am making a little bowl for you and Mama to eat your food in when I grow up.” The four-year-old smiled and went back to work. The words so struck the parents so that they were speechless. Then tears started to stream down their cheeks. Though no word was spoken, both knew what must be done. That evening, the husband took Grandfather’s hand and gently led him back to the family table. For the remainder of his days, he ate every meal

with the family. And for some reason, neither husband nor wife seemed to care any longer when a fork was dropped, milk spilled or the tablecloth soiled.” There are many of life’s lessons that can be learned from this illustration, but one of utmost interest is the theory that behavioral patterns are learned rather than inherited. The four-year-old was evidently only following the lead and example of his parents. I wonder what would have happened to these parents down the road had they not altered their behavior regarding the treatment of the Grandfather. Christmas is a time of giving and receiving gifts with the primary emphasis upon the Gift of Christmas. If we want to be happy during this Christmas and throughout the year, let us think along these lines. If we merely pursue happiness for ourselves, it more often eludes us. But when we focus on the well being of our family, friends, others and doing the very best we can, happiness has of way of finding us regardless of the circumstance.

Weatherman

There’s a joke by comedian Lewis Black that I think applies to how I feel about the current trend of cloudy gray weather. I’m of course paraphrasing here, but while talking about Valentine’s Day and the gloomy weather that month can sometimes produce, Mr. Black mentioned that he would probably have to cut himself just to see any color at all. Morbid? Perhaps. A butchered attempt at paraphrasing a funny joke? Definitely. But it’s one I can’t help but think given the doom and gloom weather we’ve been receiving lately. Saturday thankfully was a break, as the sun shone brightly and the temperature was a few degrees above “My jacket is frozen to my body.” This was perfect for Brownsville, considering it was also the day of the big Children’s and Christmas parades. If you missed these two events, that’s too bad. Many, including myself figured the events as a perfect ways to kick off the Christmas season. Unfortunately, it didn’t last throughout the weekend as we began entering another gray spot of rainy weather. Don’t get me wrong; I love

rainy weather, in bits and pieces. But a near week of the stuff does seem kind of depressing. Why is it depressing though? Is it something as humans we’ve always felt? Or is it something that comes as result of countless books, TV shows and movies depicting the weather as a natural occasion for sadness? How many times have we viewed some hopeless, heartbroken protagonist walking in the rain while some moody Coldplay or The Smiths plays in the background?

Rainy weather isn’t always so bad, but viewing the same type of nature setting gets old real fast. It probably wouldn’t be so bad if it weren’t happening during winter. There are few things in the world that really get to me. Okay that’s a lie. There are tons of things that get to me—the Cubs not winning the World Series for example—but another item is definitely coming inside a building, out from drab sky and bad hair day winds to soggy cold socks. Winter rain, it’s slightly more annoying than snow.

Weekly Devotional

PENTECOSTAL HOUSE OF PRAYER 235 Friendship Rd. • 772-9678

“My Brethren count it all joy when you fall into divers temptations; knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience…” James 1:2-3 Our God is in complete control. Even when it seems like bad things are happening. As believers, we can trust that God is working for our good in all things (Rom. 8:28). Although it is very hard to do, we can rest in His perfect plan for each of our lives. Even when the worst possible thing happens, it is for a purpose. We are being conformed daily to the image of Christ…and sometimes it is painful. But believers can rest in Christ, knowing that there will come a day when all will be made right. There will come a day when sin, sickness, death, despair, and heartache will be no more. “For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us” (Rom. 8:18).

Douglas News News AllenAllenNews News Douglas By Alvis M. Bond

Now that the Thanksgiving Holiday is behind us, our focus now turns to the Christmas Holidays with all the glamour of many beautiful decorations, gifts and everything that falls into that category, but let us not forget the reason for the season. Our blessings are many and too numerous to count.

The Douglas Fellowship group enjoyed our Christmas Bingo games with Martha Dancy being the winner of the beautiful wreath that was given as the big winner. We will also give away another one this week. The quilt is almost finished and it’s beautiful! Not so sure about the completion date, but much emphasis

is being placed on it. On our prayer list this week includes: Hattie Watkins, Shirley Hunter, Joe B. Lewis, Jimmie L. Turner, Callie Brooks, Betty Douglas, Luevenia Boyd, Pastor Shirley Richmond, Rev. J. V. Carney, Jackson Rice, Edward Vaulx, Mary N. Greer and Emma Miller.

Hillville - Eurekaton News

ille - Eurekaton News By By Vicki Williams Vicki Williams “Living by the Bible’s guidance puts us on the way of blessedness.” This is our Thought for the Week by Virginia Jelinek of Pennsylvania as published in the Upper Room Devotional. We have heard God’s challenge to us through scripture or a sermon, asking us to make changes in our life, to give of our time and money or to drop an unhealthy habit. Inspired at first we respond positively resolving to be a doer, but then we begin to waver. Heedlessness leads to self-deception but embracing God’s word and following its guidance ensures blessings. Just a reminder of the benefit for the family of Stephanie Elrod Travis. The benefit will be held at Christ Church on Friday, December 16. There will be singing by the Barnetts and soup and sandwiches. For more information or to make a donation, please contact Tammie Staggs, 780-3599, Deanna Fox, 432-9665 or Sabrina Benard at 780-0100.

The Mt. Pleasant Children Christmas Program will be Sunday, December 11 at 9:30 a.m. and the Mt. Pleasant Christmas Cantata “Let’s Go to Bethlehem” will be on Sunday, December 18 at 9:30 a.m. Barney and Vicky Garrett, Eugene and Billie Kirkland, Gerald and Deborah Lewis, Jerry and Peggy Lewis, Carol Bruce, Lillie Goodman, Sue Goodman and I delivered food and toys to the Reelfoot Rural Ministries on Saturday, December 3. Some of the Mt. Pleasant ladies helped with the sorting of the toys. This is such a great ministry. Each year I am just amazed at the number of families and children this program helps. We traveled into Tiptonville and enjoyed lunch and great fellowship at the Lakeview Restaurant. Two special birthday wishes this week to my “adopted” brother Jeff Watson, who celebrates on December 6 and to his daughter Emily who celebrates her 8th

birthday on December 11. Happy birthday you two! Birthday wishes this week to Jordan Goodman, Zach Esquivias, Crystal Morris, Ashley Edmonds, Rhonda Holmes, Stephanie Whittiemore, Chilton Martin, Jeremy Hayes, Pat Bullifin and Shelly Goodman.

By Denise Phillips were 12 present, and Allen Outlaw led the devotion. Anyone interested in joining this faithful group of men, come to Zion’s family life center every Thursday morning at six. Britany and Alivia Phillips came Saturday and helped decorate our tree after decorating their new tree Friday night. Johnny and Janet Taylor stopped by for a brief visit while we were decorating outside. They had been shopping. Thanks to Dewayne Autry for the use of his leaf blower, although they tend to circle and come right back on our front porch. Happy belated birthday wishes to Amanda Drake (2nd) and coming wishes to her husband Joey Drake (15th) and her mom Carolyn Joyner (22nd). Also, happy anniversary wishes to Joey and Amanda who were married 12 years December 3rd. I heard that Amanda had a BIG birthday celebration!

My grandchildren Claire and Will enjoyed the children’s Christmas Parade on the square Saturday afternoon. Claire rode her bicycle and Will actually slept through the trip around the courthouse following Santa Claus. Mrs. Claus was there giving out candy canes, and she read stories to the children, who listened in amazement. Thanks to everyone who made this possible.

Wellwood/ZionNews News llwood/Zion Is your God big enough to get you through tough times? Dr. Bob Agee used that question to deliver the sermon at Zion Baptist Church Sunday morning. Using Psalms, he focused on God being so big that He never lets us down (Ps. 23 and 46), He never lets us off (32 and 51) and He never lets us go (91). We need to stand on His promises! It was good to see Julie and Laura Kirkpatrick back after their visit with her dad in Florida over Thanksgiving. It was also great to see Justin Cole and family with their new baby girl, Lily. We did miss several of our youth who were at Precept Ministries in Chattanooga. Sunday night many of our youth shared experiences from Precept, followed by Dr. Agee’s message taken from I Peter. Remember your identity! Bradley Jones led the prayer meeting Wednesday night and did an excellent job. He used James 1 and the story of “The Three Trees” to point out, if we are obedient to God in the small things, it will be great! Thanks to Rex Barnes for the prayer breakfast report. He said there

Don’t forget the Stanton Christmas Parade this Saturday at 2 p.m.!!! We were not able to have our parade last year due to circumstances beyond our control. We now have those circumstances worked out so come on out and let’s have a great time this year! Hopefully we will never miss another year. Santa will be here Saturday, and Ms. Linda Jones and her crew have a great day lined up for you. If you have not entered the parade, there is still time, just call Ms. Linda at 548-6182 or the Stanton Welcome Center/Library at 5482564. I missed one of the most important sweet potato people last week; Smitty (Ward Smith) has a 6 ¾ lb. sweet potato he grew himself! We need to get a picture of that before he eats it. Good news, we finally heard from the ditches grant we were awarded some time back (seems like two years ago). The State has officially approved all the details and opportunities to

bid on the project are underway at this time. I’ve been told the bidding process has been outlined in an ad running in the Jackson Sun. Bids will be opened and awarded January 5 at 2 p.m. and hopefully work will begin shortly thereafter. Those 8,500 books received in a grant to the Stanton Welcome Center/Library were picked up from Nashville and delivered to Haywood High School (for distribution) last week. Many thanks to all who helped retrieve, load and unload all those. We received some very nice books! Do you have any idea how much room 8,500 books takes up or how heavy they are to load? We have a few people with sore backs who can tell you and we appreciate all they did to assist us! The books will be given out through the school system, but if you have a daycare, homeschoolers, or young ones at home please let us know. You may also contact Ms. Julie Dahlhauser, librarian

at Haywood High. We should have plenty of books for everybody! We’ve heard of a lot of sickness and tragedies lately, both of which are especially sad this time of year. The family of Rev. Timothy Bowers, of Mt. Zion MB Church, lost a significant friend of the family suddenly last week. Stanton also lost Mr. Raymond Johnson, the man who walked off from his home and was found last August. There are several others among us who are dealing with sickness, plus others who have been involved in accidents. Please keep all these families in your thoughts and prayers. 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@gmail. com. Please put “Stanton News” in the subject line. Together we will look at the past, look toward the future and report current events.

Here we go, the Christmas season is upon us and I’m getting excited! We’re decorated and looking superb so you must come see us. If you want to have a beautiful Christmas card, bring your child or children to Sugar Creek and let them sit in front of one of our six trees. There’s still time to have them made and sent out. Thank you so much to our friends at Family Medicine for two beautiful poinsettias this week, one was red and the other was white. What a nice surprise. Also thanks to David Marbury, Steve Downen and Ricky Adair for coming from Mississippi this week to sing for us. Our residents just love these three. They are actually called “Two Or More” and their harmony is wonderful. Now we’re looking forward to Mary Alice White from Jackson playing Christmas music for a sing-along for us today and also for the wonderful Haywood High Show Choir coming tomorrow. Talk about fantastic - that’s

the Show Choir! I told you last week about having to go to the new Justice Center here in Haywood County to see if they wanted me for a jury. It was pouring down rain that day and they had summoned half the county for jury duty. I had to park at least a half a mile away and needless to say I got wet. I asked the gentleman that “frisked” us (I learned that word from NCIS) if they couldn’t at least have VALET parking on the days it rained. He said they did have valet parking, but the valets took you straight to the door of the jail and if I’d like to go there he’d call the valet right up. I decided I’d park myself and just go see if they needed me on the jury. They did for about 10 minutes, but then they didn’t like the earrings I had on or something because out of the clear blue Judge Peeples said I was dismissed. Oh well, so much for trying to do my civic duty. We had a neat program this week call the “Pursuit of Happiness Day.” We talked about

what it takes to make us happy and it was amazing how different we all were when we’re young. When we get to about the ages we are now, however, it’s a totally different story. As we went around the room the answers to what makes us happy were almost always the same – family and friends. Not one person said a word about MONEY, which was the big happiness factor when we were young! Saw Suzie Tipton spreading some happiness as she visited Myra Jo Hurley, Lyde Hamilton, et al. Hope you all saw and liked the Sugar Creek float in the Christmas parade this past weekend. Deanna Fox, Jennifer Martin, Tamekia Reid, Trophy Hawkins, Jerdean Hines, Angela Rayner, Shawanda Jarrett, Ashley Bell, Patsy Weed, Diane Hooper and Brooke Evans worked really hard to make this float beautiful. I think even a few husbands gave a hand with the heavy parts. Come see us!

“God is Looking For a Few Good Men and Women” was the subject of the message. The heartbeat of God is missions, and He will bless a person and church that is mission-minded. He calls each and every one to salvation, to give up worldliness, to serve Him and to get the message of salvation out to lost humanity. Jesus commands us to go into all the world and make disciples. We do that by supporting those who go with our prayers and gifts. We must give God the keys to our lives and let Him lead and we follow. Mike Coburn did a beautiful job singing the special music.

Those men and women were giving it all they had to organize the whole shebang and make sure that our parade was safe and fun! We never think about all the unscene drama, logistics and preparation that take place, while we’re having a terrific time! I was riding with Vicky Fawcett and felt as if I were in a patrol car! (She used to be with the police force in Marion, AR! Whew!) ‘Thank You’ also, to our own Drew McGruder! He has been our announcer for several years and always makes it fun!

and was well attended. For the first time in ages, the Brotherhood had more members in their group than the WMU. The sick are counting on our prayers on their behalf. Glenn White underwent surgery and is doing well, we were told. We rejoice with Jennifer Stephens who received a good report from her doctor. Remember these along with Viola Brown, Bobby Perry, Elvin Wells, James Lewis, Ruth Tayor and Annalee Myers. Others to include are Ted Mann, Ashlyn Young, Fletcher Lewis, Rex Bond, Jane Carr, Betty Friend and Ray and Janie Hight. Also include Danny Simpson, Justin Climer, Ginger Warren, Michelle Vaughn, Houston Gordon, Sandra Posey and Anna Smith. The estate sale of Mr. Tommy and Miss Clara Garstang was quite a success with every thing being sold, including their home place. Before coming to Holly Grove Community, they ran

an antique store and Mr. Tommy worked on clocks. Their home was full of beautiful antiques. I was fortunate to obtain a grandfathers clock and a beautiful old lamp. I told Dewey that could be my Christmas present, anniversary and birthday present next year. We add our sympathy to Candi Wright and family in the death of her father, Mr. Troy Hoppers. The Young Adult Class II enjoyed themselves last Saturday night at Robert and Betty Barden’s camp house for their Christmas celebration. Brother Ralph and Elaine Brown are their teachers. I recently had more books reprinted on my second book, “A Journey Into Yesteryears” telling of the history of Haywood County and several communities in the county. That may sound rather dull, but I included lots of stories to entertain if history is not your thing. Call me if you’re interested.

Page 12 — The Brownsville States-Graphic, Thursday, December 8, 2011

Second Annual Children’s Parade

The sponsors of the second annual children’s parade couldn’t have asked for better weather. As children gathered on the court square, the sun was shining and the weather was warm. Children of all ages turned out for the event and even Santa and Mrs. Claus made a special stop in Brownsville. After the parade, Mrs. Claus read the children Christmas stories and Santa took photos with them and listened to their Christmas wish lists.

Rawls Funeral Home celebrates annual memorial service and customer appreciation program.

Excitement was in the air as people gathered at First Baptist Church to celebrate the 74th Rawls Funeral Home Memorial/Appreciation night. Mr. Ivory T. Ellison of Brownsville Radio talked to people who shared their experiences through the years with Rawls Funeral Home so that friends at home could join in the celebration. The melodious organ music could be heard from the hand of Minister Jeffery Vaulx and the beautiful voices of Perfect Praise blended perfectly as the processional began. It consisted of family members of the 2011 deceased loved ones, Women of Purpose and members of Winfield

Lodge #52, moving to their seats in the sanctuary of First Baptist Church. Mr. W. D. “Bill” Rawls Jr., 20 year funeral director and son of Mr. W. D. Rawls Sr., past president of Rawls Funeral Home, served as Master of Ceremonies. Minister Larry Barbee of Saint James Church of God in Christ offered prayer and David Alan Johnson, great grandson of founder C. A. Rawls, representing the fourth generation of the Rawls Funeral Home, extended words of welcome. Minister Vaulx and Perfect Praise presented a musical selection followed by the dedication of the program by Mrs.

Cynthia Rawls Bond, 35 year funeral director and president of Rawls Funeral Home, to Mr. J. C. Turner, who passed away on May 16, 2011 at age 89. He was the father of ten, grandfather to 13 and great-grandfather of nine, a Brownsville historian who served through his church, the armed forces, a teacher in the elementary, high school and farm training for veterans. Members of the Turner family were present to pay their final respects as his wife, Mrs. Berda Mae Turner and daughter, Mrs. Helen Goodloe moved forward to light a candle in memory of Mr. Turner. Mrs. Andrea Bond Johnson, Golden Circle

Insurance Agency’s CEO and 19-year funeral director for Rawls Funeral Home, made a special presentation to Women of Purpose, who were described as “Women on the Battlefield for the Lord”. She presented a beautiful plaque to the singing group. The group has been singing since 2004. Their mission is to encourage, renew and restore the lives of men and women through their music ministry. The visual memorial presentation and lighting of candles is a breathtaking time during the program, as a picture of each deceased loved one is shown on the screen while their name is called and a candle is lit in their memory.

Lady Warriors remain undefeated

By JEFF IRELAND jireland@statesgraphic.com

Things got interesting down the stretch, but the Haywood Junior High Lady Warriors held off a late surge by Munford Middle Monday night on the road to remain undefeated. Munford trimmed an 11-point deficit to two in the final minute, but Alecia Johnson scored a key bucket with 24 seconds left and Haywood improved to 6-0 with a 47-43 win. Haywood led 43-35 with 1:38 left before a 7-1 Munford run made it close. “Teamwork … that's been the most important thing so far,” said HJH coach Buffie Turner after her team handed MMS its first loss of the season. “We're a team on the court and off the court.” Haywood's Tietiyana

Bailey, who finished with 12 points, scored four straight midway through the third quarter to help Haywood build a 27-16 lead. She also hit a 3-pointer and scored inside early in the first period as HJS raced to an 8-0 lead. Wanderykei Young hit a key free throw in the final seconds for Haywood and also finished with 12. Latoya Darby tallied 11 points for Haywood and Johnson added eight. The boys' game was not nearly as close as Haywood improved to 4-2 with a 50-26 win over Munford Middle. Haywood led by 11 at the half and 14 through three quarters before blowing the game wide open early in the fourth quarter. Emmitt Gooden scored seven of his game-high 17 points in the first quarter

and scored six more in the fourth as Haywood pulled away. Cory Newble scored all eight of his points in the first half, including a 3-point play with 1:37 left in the second quarter that gave Haywood its first double-digit lead at 20-9. Deadrick Boyce added eight points for the Warriors, including a 3-pointer early in the third quarter, and Kantavious Wilson finished with seven. Haywood's pressure defense held Munford to to just four points in the second and fourth quarters. Munford was held scoreless the first seven minutes of the second quarter. Haywood returns to action Friday night at home against Fayette East Middle before heading to Covington on Monday to take on Crestview Middle.
