The Haywood County Branch of the NAACP celebrated Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day by having a pa-

rade on Monday, January 21. The parade was to celebrate the memory of the civil rights leader. Even though there was a slight chill in the air, it was a beautiful day for a parade.

At least 150 people participated in the parade, which began at Carver High, traveled down Jefferson to Anderson, then to Main and around Court Square before heading back down Jefferson to

Carver High. As the crowd walked through downtown they sang old gospel hymns. After the parade, members made it back just in time to watch the inauguration of President Barack Obama.

Weekend accident results in three fatalities

Three men were killed as a result of a one-car accident that occurred on Highway 76 Sunday, January 20. Pictured above is the Cadillac Deville that the victims were traveling in. Photo by Vicky Fawcett BY JENNIFER WILLIS jwillis@statesgraphic.com Three young men lost their lives in an accident that occurred on Highway 76 at 3:24 a.m. Sunday, January 20. According to a report from the Tennessee Highway Patrol,

23-year-old Eddie L. West, of Brownsville, was traveling north on Highway 76 in a 2000 Cadillac Deville when he lost control and â&#x20AC;&#x153;went into a high speed yaw.â&#x20AC;? The vehicle exited to the left of the road and traveled down a steep embankment before the right side of the vehicle collided

with a tree. The vehicle came to a final rest against the tree. Martavius T. Robinson, 23, of Brownsville, and Jarves L. Gause, 24, of Bells, were passengers in the car. According to the report, all three men were pronounced dead on arrival. It is the opinion of the

investigating officer that speed was a factor in the crash, and that seat belts may have made a difference. Sources who were at the scene said it was estimated that West was traveling in excess of one hundred milesper-hour when he lost control. The accident site, from the

scarred tree to the debris lying a hundred feet away, tells the sad story of the horrific crash. A cross has been placed at the accident site in memory of the three young lives that were lost. The cause of the accident is still under investigation by the Tennessee Highway Patrol.

Officer sustains minor injuries during pursuit BY JENNIFER WILLIS jwillis@statesgraphic. com On Thursday, January 17, investigators with the Brownsville Police Department received information that Brandon Hill was in possession of crack cocaine and was making deliveries. Officers began searching for Hill and found him traveling west on Thomas at North McLemore. Officers attempted to stop the vehicle, but Hill fled, turning south onto North Grand from Thomas. Officers deployed spike strips and were able to Officer Kelvin Evans of the Brownsville Police Department sustained minor deflate the driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s side front tire, which kept injuries during the course of a pursuit on January 17. Brandon Hill and Larry Jelks were eventually arrested and booked into the Haywood County the pursuit speed to a minimum. The pursuit Jail. Photo by Jennifer Willis continued through the

school zone at Haywood Elementary School and onto West College. After turning on to West College, Hill and his passenger, Larry Jelks, began to throw cocaine from the vehicle. The pursuit continued down East College to Tamm, on to North Park, and then to Tyus before finally coming to an end on North Bradford. After the vehicle stopped, a struggle ensued, and Investigator Kelvin Evansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; foot was run over by one the vehicleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tires as a result of it being left in gear. Evans was later transported to Haywood Park Community Hospital and released with only minor injuries. He has since returned to work.

Officers found Hill and Jelks in the vehicle, along with cocaine residue, rocks of crack cocaine, and marijuana residue. Officers also returned to West College and were able to recover some of the cocaine that was thrown from the vehicle. Hill was charged with evading arrest, tampering with evidence, reckless endangerment, and possession of schedule II with intent. Jelks was charged with tampering with evidence. Both were booked into the Haywood County Jail and are being held without bond.

Tyus wins bank shot Corker to be named ranking member of Senate Foreign Relations Committee today United States Senator Bob Corker, R-TN, will be the lead Republican or “ranking member” of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for the 113th Congress. Corker’s appointment will be confirmed today during a lunch meeting of Senate Republicans and is expected to be ratified when the Senate passes a resolution officially organizing committees in the coming days. As ranking member, Corker will work with the chairman to represent the interests of his Republican colleagues and help carry out the legislative and oversight responsibilities of the committee. “I am honored to have the opportunity to lead the Foreign Relations Committee on behalf of the minority, and as we enter this new Congress, it is my goal to see the committee play a more relevant role in international relations and be a place where we look at our national interests in the context of the longer view,” said Corker. “I also look forward to working with the chairman and my colleagues on the committee to carefully review programs and practices at USAID and the State Department, which hasn’t been done in a comprehensive way in decades. This should include a top-

to-bottom review of all foreign assistance programs and State Department authorities to ensure that they are being conducted in line with American strategic national interests.” Corker has been a member of the Foreign Relations Committee since he entered the Senate in 2007. He has visited 48 different countries since taking office to understand the strategic relationships between the U.S. and other nations that are critical to the American economy and national security. Established in 1816 as one of the original standing committees of the Senate, the Foreign Relations Committee has jurisdiction over legislation concerning the conduct of U.S. foreign policy, including foreign assistance, treaties, and declarations of war, among other matters. The committee is also responsible for oversight of the U.S. State Department and review of executive branch nominations that carry out U.S. diplomacy, including Secretary of State and U.S. ambassadorships. For additional information about the history and rules of the committee, visit: http://foreign. senate.gov. Tomorrow (Wednesday) at 9:00

a.m. ET, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will testify before the committee about the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans. On Thursday at 10:00 a.m. ET, the committee will hold the nomination hearing to consider Senator John Kerry, D-Mass., as the next Secretary of State.

ASK OUR DOCTOR Some Answers to Frequently Asked Health Questions from First Care Medical Center

Horse Liniment Erases Pain HIALEAH, FL—An ingredient often used to treat inflammation in race horse legs, is now back on the market in its original doctor recommended clinical formula. According to a national drug store survey, the formula at one time became so popular that it rose to the top of pharmacy sales for topical pain relievers. But the company marketing the product at the time changed the formula and sales plummeted. One of the inventors of the original formula has brought it back to the market under the trade name ARTH ARREST and says it can relieve pain for millions. ARTH ARREST works by a dual mechanism whereby one ingredient relieves pain immediately, while a second ingredient seeks out and destroys the pain messenger signal before it can be sent to the brain. Considered a medical miracle by some, the ARTH ARREST formula is useful in the treatment of painful disorders ranging from minor aches and pains to more serious conditions such as arthritis, bursitis, rheumatism, tendonitis, and more. ARTH ARREST is available in a convenient roll-on applicator at pharmacies without a prescription or call 1-800-339-3301. Now at:

Garrick Clouden, M.D., Family Medicine “Improve your diet and get more exercise,” is something we doctors say repeatedly to our patients, friends, family, and even to ourselves about getting and staying healthy. Let me answer a few questions about exercise. Doctor, what is exercise? Any physical activity is considered exercise. But, running a marathon and changing television channels as activities have very different exercise results. Many have active lifestyles--chasing kids around the house, standing and moving at work for an entire shift, or even lifting heavy objects all day---are examples of activities that keep you active. Here’s the BUT. Your body is a smart technology that learns what is a routine level of activity for you and then it accommodates that level. So in order to make exercise a change to improve your health, you will have to do an activity beyond what’s normal for you. For the purposes of improving your health, then let’s define exercise as: An activity beyond your regular daily routine done with the intention of improving your cardiovascular health and to strengthen our body and mind. How much exercise do I need? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends 2 hours and 30 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity and muscle strengthening activity on 2 or more days of the week. The good news is that aerobic activity can be broken into manageable segments, like 10 minutes at a time, which will yield results and is a great way to begin. And, before starting any exercise for health, I recommend that you talk to your health care provider. How do I know if what I am doing is enough? You should be breathing a little harder than normal and some sweat is great. An objective measure is to make sure that your heart rate is between 50-70% of your maximum when doing moderate exercise. Your maximum heart rate is determined by subtracting your age from 220 bpm (beats per minute.) For example, a 50 year old should have a heart rate between 85 and 119 when performing an activity of moderate intensity [(220 bpm – 50 years x 50-70%] What are some exercises I can do? Walking is great! However, remember you’re trying to get our heart rate up, so pump your arms and pick up your pace. Bike riding and dancing are also great, and swimming and running are examples of more strenuous activities. Here are some additional online sources for information about exercise: http://www.cdc.gov/physicalactivity/; http://familydoctor.org/familydoctor/en/prevention-wellness/exercise-fitness.html http://www.heart.org/ (click getting healthy) ALL OF US AT FIRST CARE MEDICAL CENTER WISH YOU THE BEST OF HEALTH IN 2013!

Off the Beaten Path with Jerry Wilson

A musical journey Part One I have been pleasantly surprised at the number of people who have asked me questions pertaining to my career in music. First of all, it is difficult to find a place to begin regarding my inspiration to become a musician. There were no members of my family who were musically inclined as I recall. About all we did together musically was to gather around the old battery operated radio and listened to the Grand Ole Opry on Saturday nights in the early years of my childhood. I also remember the songs that my mama used to sing around the house as she went about conducting her many chores and laboring in the cotton fields. Other musical events that could have played a major role in inspiration may have resulted from the opportunities to perform in school plays and in music appreciations classes. More opportunities to increase my musical desires gained momentum during my high school years, especially by my senior year. That’s when I signed up for high school chorus following a dare from a friend. I later was able to perform with some of the more musically

talented students that included the likes of Joe Sills who went on to become a very talented musician as well as an accomplished bandleader. Another member of this group was Alex Harvey and of course, that was before “Delta Dawn.” After high school, I started working with groups as a spokesperson. The position was more appropriately identified as an emcee or master of ceremonies. My duties freed up the entertainers so that they could concentrate more on entertaining. After spending so much time in direct contact with the shows, I felt a much stronger desire to get into the act. Before this could happen, I had to take care of some business. I had absolutely no extensive training in music and could not play a single instrument. This made it more difficult to get started. Since I could not play in a band and had absolutely nothing to offer, I purchased a cheap guitar that cost about 10 dollars and sent off for one of those “Learn to play the guitar” books. I quickly realized that more hands-on training was necessary for me. There was a man who lived in our community that could play the

guitar very well but his fingers were in bad shape and he didn’t play much. However, Ches agreed to try and teach me. He proved to be a greater teacher than I could imagine. After a few months, I learned a number of chords and keys, especially those that fit into my voice range. As a result, I was able to learn songs and accompany myself on the guitar and build a much stronger confidence level. I continued to use every opportunity to practice in hope of reaching that day when my opportunity would come. I created a catalogue of songs that I could hopefully sing well enough to get my chance. Eventually, the opportunity came and I was able to move to the next level. In the mid 1960s, several things happened that had a lasting effect on the role that music would have in my life. The formation of the Tennessee Hayride, the newly formed WBHT Radio, and the decision to become a family man proved to play a major role in my future at that time. Join me next week as those years are reviewed and see how they progressed and influenced major decisions that would forever change my life.

Yay me! And, Yay Sarah and Jacob! Well, I have survived the first week of working out! I have to admit that, aside from the soreness, I feel better. Not only is it nice to know that I am doing something healthy for myself, it is nice to be able to have a whole hour to myself in the mornings. Well, I’m not really by myself; my sister has been going with me. But, it’s “mommy time.” My sister and I don’t have a lot of time to spend together just the two of us, so it is nice to have that time with her. We motivate each other, and have a lot of fun while doing it. I start the workday off with a feeling of peace. I don’t roll out of bed and directly into the routine of getting two kids and myself ready for school/work anymore. I am also sleeping so much better at night! Now, it has not been easy. The first couple of days were pretty easy, but it went downhill fast from there. However, I won’t give up! My lower legs hurt so bad, especially when I am using stairs. My arms are sore, and I feel bad that I cannot pick up

my children. (Yes, I still pick both of them up on occasion for “big hugs.”) But, the soreness will fade, and I am learning the easiest way to work through the soreness is to get back in the gym and literally work it out. Week two here I come! I have to take a little time to brag on my babies this week. I went to their parent teacher conferences Tuesday, and they are both doing so well in school! Jacob mastered all of the skills he was suppose to for the second nine weeks, and his teacher reported that he is always well behaved. (Good job, Buddy!) Sarah made first honor roll again, and her teacher reported that she is always respectful, polite, and is well behaved. (Good job, Kiddo!) I am so proud of both of them! Keep up the good work, Mommy loves you both! I also have to brag on my nephews, Ethan and Nathan. They both received good reports from their teachers as well. Good job guys! Aunt Jennifer loves you! So, between feeling better about myself and

hearing how sweet my children are at school has made for a pretty good week. I will admit that I am ready for warmer (not HOT) weather. Chuck and I took the kids to my parent’s house Saturday and let them play with Nannie and Grandpa while we went out to lunch. We stopped and bought Jacob his first baseball glove while we were out, and decided to take full advantage of a pretty day. So, we stopped by our house and grabbed our gloves and headed back to my parent’s house. We played ball with Sarah, Jacob, and Ethan Saturday afternoon, and we had such a good time! My poor Jake has to learn that sometimes you get called out at home (bless his heart), but other than that the kids had a blast! I heard, “Hey Uncle Chuck, uuummm, after you visit Nana and Papa can we, uuummmm, play baseball again?” about a hundred times from Ethan. So, warmer weekends are definitely welcome here. I’m tired of being stuck inside on account of the cold!

Peeples

Holiday History So, let’s see; it is now the fourth week of the new year, and we’ve already had two holidays, three altogether in the last month, the last being one of the “Monday holidays” that guarantee us a three-day-weekend. And not only that, we’ve got another, Washington’s Birthday, on the horizon, coming up less than four weeks from now. Of course, many, if not most, people work on “holidays”, and many companies don’t observe some of the federally mandated holidays at all, but if you work for any sort of federal, state or local entity, it’s a pretty good bet that you get at least 10 paid “holidays” per year. It all begins, of course, with New Year’s Day, a holiday generally celebrated all around the world. AS with most holidays, we close all nonessential businesses, including the government, for the day, and on this day at least, we watch football, and if the holiday falls on a Saturday, we close all day Friday. If it comes on a Sunday, we close on Monday. Makes it look like tthe day off means more than the holiday itself. That’s how it is for most people, for most holidays, at least for those who work for the government, but even private industry and businesses generally close for the six major federal holidays. They are New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas. Those six days are the most widely observed holidays in America. Oddly enough, the day most often used as a holiday after those six is not a holiday at all; it is the day after Thanksgiving. There are four other federal holidays, but they are not as widely celebrated outside of government. Those four are Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, which we observed last weekend, Washington’s Birthday, often erroneously called “Presidents’ Day”, coming up next month, Columbus Day, in October, and Veteran’s Day, on November 11. In Tennessee, we have an additional holiday marked by closing of government offices, Good Friday. Easter has never been designated a holiday, because it always falls on a Sunday, but at least a dozen states observe a Good Friday

holiday. Whether or not it is constitutional to do so is another question, but one for another day. Tennessee’s situation regarding Columbus Day is a bit odd too. It is an official state holiday, but at the discretion of the governor, it may be observed not on the second Monday in October, along with the rest of the nation, but on the day after Thanksgiving instead. When Ned McWherter was governor, he allowed state employees to vote as to which day they preferred, and they overwhelmingly chose the day after Thanksgiving, so that’s when we “officially” celebrate Columbus Day in Tennessee. I mentioned that the rest of the nation celebrates Columbus Day on the second Monday of October. That means it may, but usually won’t, fall on the actual day, October 12. That’s what “Monday holidays” do; they make the actual date on which they occur float along with the calendar. This drives some people crazy, but ever since 1971, The Uniform Holidays Act has mandated that Washington’s Birthday, Memorial Day, Columbus Day, and now Martin Luther King Day will all be observed on a Monday. Congress originally added Veteran’s Day to that list, but veterans’ organizations raised such a ruckus over the change that after four years they went back to always celebrating it on November 11. Because of the configuration Congress set up, Washington’s Birthday, the third

Monday in February, never falls on Washington’s actual birthday, February 22. That may be one reason people insist on calling it Presidents’ Day. Abraham Lincoln’s birthday is February 12, and somehow people have gotten the idea that he is being honored too. Not so. Officially it is Washington’s day only. Memorial Day and Labor Day, bookends of summer, as they say, are perfect for Monday holidays, but Columbus Day has become so controversial that some want to even do away with it. Several states, as a matter of fact, have, and Tennessee, as I mentioned earlier, uses the holiday to stretch out Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving, by the way, is the only holiday that always fall on Thursday , fourth Thursday in November, and Independence Day is always July 4, regardless of the day of the week on which it falls. I think that covers them all. Next up for us is Washington’s Birthday, February 18 this year, but don’t forget that federal holidays aren’t the only ones there are. So here’s a word of advice for all you guys out there. There’s another very important holiday coming up next month, and no, I’m not talking about Groundhog Day. You know what it is; it’s Valentine’s Day, and woe to the man who forgets. Don’t take chances; buy her a present now, and make it nice. Otherwise, you might be spending the Washington’s Birthday holiday weekend alone.

Weekly Devotional “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16 Notice what Paul is telling Timothy here. Scripture is enough for “the man of God may be complete, equipped for EVERY good work.” There is nothing that we must do that Scripture doesn’t prepare us for. There is no good work that a believer must engage in which is not clearly defined in Scripture. It is easy to say things like, “We must walk in obedience to God,” or “we must live according to God’s Word,” but it is much more difficult to actually live it out when God’s will is clearly telling you to do something you don’t really want to do. We look for any loophole to allow us to subvert God’s revealed will and replace it with our own. We cry, “God, tell me what to do,” when He has already spoken but we simply don’t want to accept it.

Anderson Early Child Center gets Smart Boards Research has shown that technology enhances education for 21st century instruction. Anderson Early Child Center supports this. Five kindergarten teachers were awarded Smartboards this semester. Elizabeth Becraft, Chrissy Carl, Nicole Henderson, Jessie Warren, and Jennifer White wrote proposals on how technology can raise student achievement and

were selected by a team of their peers. Anderson did fundraisers to raise money to purchase the Smartboards and the Board of Education offered support, too. Also, the Special Education Department has added three Smartboards to support instruction, using technology. Connie Allen, Wendy Hopper, and Adrain Christopher are the recipients.

Anderson students learn a dinosaur dance Kelly Key’s kindergarten class recently completed a unit on dinosaurs. They read many books and studied many facts about

dinosaurs, continents, and our earth millions of years ago. As a treat for all this learning and reading, they learned a dance called the “Sid Shuffle”

Student of the Week Rashad Mann, son of Veronika and Michael Cobb, is the Haywood High School Student of the Week. Rashad, a senior, is a member of HHS Show Choir, the Beta Club, Spanish Club, AFJROTC and the Academic Decathlon team. He is also serving as the Senior Class president. Rashad enjoys reading, singing, doing crossword puzzles and helping others. He plans to attend the University of Tennessee at Knoxville and major in chemical engineering. “Rashad is very responsible, respectful, and cooperative. He is truly a leader in the Academic Decathlon class, and he always behaves like a gentleman. I know Rashad will be successful in life,” Miss Glynn Bridgewater said.

“The Brownsville Group” attends President Obama’s inauguration

Pictured above are members of a traveling party (“The Brownsville Group”) from Haywood and surrounding counties, arriving home from a historic fun-filled Photo by Jennifer Willis weekend attending the second inauguration of the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama. ARTICLE SUBMITTED BY JOHN ASHWORTH AND TRACY TAYLOR There are not enough words to describe the experience we had this past weekend as we traveled to watch the second inauguration of President Barack Obama. We were a part of a historic event that will never be erased from our memories. “The Brownsville Group” departed from the Justice Complex on Friday January 18th, and arrived in Washington DC on Saturday afternoon. The

Brownsville group was especially rewarded during Sunday’s tour as they entered Arlington Cemetery just moments prior to the arrival of the Presidential motorcade. We were feet away from President Barack H. Obama & Vice President Joe Biden as their motorcade came by. They waved at us and other bystanders. They were there to place a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia. We also saw the Kennendy’s burial sight, Tombs of the

Unknown Soldiers, & many others.The Brownsville Group was rewarded with President Obama actually waiving to them as his and the Vice President’s vehicles drove past. Sunday afternoon’s activities were capped with their attendance at the Martin Luther King Memorial site ceremony. This ceremony was especially significant to this group as the major historic players from the 1960’s civil rights era were on the program. Included were: Reverends Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton,

Dick Gregory, Chris Tucker, Jamie Foxx as well as Dr. King’s son, Martin Luther King II. Monday was the highlight of it all as the Brownsville Group joined over a million other attendees on the National Mall to listen and watch as President Barack Obama was sworn in the second time. This was an especially moving and memorable trip for the attendees, who also took time to visit the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall and remember the 10 Haywood Countians on

Lady Michelle Obama waving excitedly to the crowd. Again we were feet away as they gracefully walked the streets. Then along came Vice President Joe Biden, energetically running down the streets as his wife Jill Biden casually walked & waived to the bystanders. God was definitely on our side during the entire time. We definitely want to give Mrs. Diana Jarrett & Ms. Carla Musgrave a VERY special thank you for having the vision to coordinate such a wonderful trip.

the wall, in addition to the MLK Celebration and Inauguration of our 44th President. Lastly a few of us attended the parade on Pennsylvania Avenue. Again we were blessed to be there because we did not have tickets for the event, but were allowed to go in after going through the security process. After our group entered, security closed the gates. Various military bands performed. Then along came the Secret Service vehicles and the next faces we saw were President Obama & First

Tennessee Saw Increase in Traffic Fatalities in 2012 Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security officials today joined representatives from the state’s Department of Transportation and Governor’s Highway Safety Office to announce the preliminary number of traffic fatalities in 2012. Early figures indicate there was an increase in vehicular deaths on Tennessee roadways last year. These figures include all vehicular fatalities in Tennessee reported by law enforcement agencies across the state. In 2012, there were 1,019 traffic-related deaths in Tennessee, representing the third lowest figure since 1963 when 941 people were killed as a result of a crash. However, last year’s preliminary number of traffic deaths marks an 8.8 percent increase, compared to 2011, when there was a record-low number of 937 vehicular fatalities. “We recorded the lowest number of traffic deaths in 48 years in 2011. We knew those figures would be difficult to replicate. However, despite last year’s increase, traffic fatalities in Tennessee have declined by nearly 24 percent since 2004. The downward trend indicates that we are moving in the right direction, but we must do better,” Safety and Homeland Security Commissioner Bill Gibbons said. "When we began posting the fatality numbers on

our message boards, our number one goal was to make drivers think about risky behavior that could cost them their lives," TDOT Commissioner John Schroer said. "In addition to raising awareness, we are also investing millions of dollars in projects to improve safety across the state." Tennessee has experienced a decline in roadway incidents in several categories over the past decade. Since 2004, overall traffic crashes have dropped by 7.8 percent across the state; traffic fatalities involving large trucks have decreased by 39.5 percent since 2005; all-terrain vehicle (ATV) deaths have declined by 50 percent since 2008; and pedestrian fatalities have decreased by 19 percent over the past year. Also, impaired driving fatalities have fallen 31.8 percent from 2007 to 2011 in Tennessee. In 2012, preliminary statistics indicate 246 people were killed in alcohol-related crashes across the state (24.1%). Additionally, Tennessee State Troopers had increased their number of DUI arrests by 25.4 percent last year over 2011. “Impaired driving and seat belt usage continues to cause a major concern for the law enforcement community and highway safety advocates,” THP Colonel Tracy Trott said. “Our agency will continue to

focus on these traffic safety issues with seat belt saturations, sobriety checkpoints and ‘No Refusal’ enforcement campaigns in 2013. We only hope the citizens of Tennessee help us in this effort to save lives – buckle up and don’t drink and drive,” he added. In Tennessee, unrestrained motorists accounted for more than half (52.7%) of vehicle occupants killed in 2012. Other contributing factors in fatal crashes included speed and distracted driving, with 141 and 56 deaths, respectively. “Distracted driving is the number one killer of teens nationwide,” GHSO Director Kendell Poole said. “Last year, teen traffic fatalities increased just over 10 percent in Tennessee. Our goal is to coordinate safety initiatives with state and local law enforcement partners to educate the public on responsible habits on the road, including enforcements and safety messages on seat belt usage and impaired and distracted driving.” Another area of concern is the number of motorcycle fatalities, which have more than tripled in Tennessee in the last 14 years. Last year, 138 motorcyclists lost their lives on state roadways, compared to 114 motorcyclist deaths in 2011. That’s a 21.1 percent spike in motorcyclist fatalities. “Drinking and driving

is not just a problem for motorists in passenger vehicles,” Colonel Trott said. “Of the 138 motorcycle fatalities in Tennessee last year, 20.3 percent of them were alcohol-related. We hope to reduce serious injury and fatal crashes amongst motorcyclists in 2013, by focusing on education and enforcing impaired driving laws.” According to the National Safety Council (NSC),

traffic fatalities increased by five percent nationally in the first 11 months of 2012. Besides Tennessee, preliminary statistics indicated increases in roadway deaths were experienced in several surrounding states, including: Georgia, Kentucky, Missouri, North Carolina and Virginia. Preliminary statistics indicate 36 people have died on Tennessee roadways in 2013, the same figure as

this time last year.

Tomcats rout Gibson County By JEFF IRELAND jireland@statesgraphic.com Thirty seconds into Haywood's home game Tuesday night against Gibson County, Tomcat head coach Kendall Dancy called timeout with his team down 2-0. He had a few stern words for this team. Whatever he said apparently worked. Haywood answered with an 18-2 run, which included eight points from Sadarius Delk, and went on to blow out the Pioneers, 86-48. The Tomcats' (12-10 overall, 7-5 district) District 13-AA win broke a three-game losing streak that came at the hands of Covington, Fayette-Ware and Westview, three of the state's top ranked teams. “We needed a win tonight,” Dancy said. “We've played some top ranked teams. The guys are understanding their roles and responsibilities.” Delk, who finished with a game-high 22

points, scored six straight points in the first quarter as Haywood went on a 10-0 run to go ahead 104. Montravious Maclin, who scored all eight of his points in the first quarter, which Haywood won 298. The Tomcats led 4728 at the half and 78-37 through three quarters. A running clock was used for most of the fourth quarter with lead hovering around 40 points. Kyler Douglas scored 10 of his 14 points in the third quarter. Jordon Varnado hit a 3-pointer in the third quarter and finished with 15 points. Kendal Middlebrooks scored 10 for the Tomcats. The win solidified Haywood's fourth place spot in the district standings. With six district games to go, starting with Friday night's game at sixth-place Dyersburg, Haywood still has a chance to move up in the standings.

If the season were to end today, the Tomcats would play Ripley in the first round of the district tournament. Haywood plays at Ripley on Feb. 1. Dancy said his team is rounding into from as the postseason approaches. “They know what to expect from me, but they need to know what to expect from each other to be good teammates,” Dancy said. “Their skin's getting a little thicker. They're accepting criticism from me and their teammates a lot better.” Haywood will host Crockett County on Tuesday and will travel to Obion County on Feb. 2 in a make-up game. In other recent action: • Haywood lost a nondistrict game at home Saturday night to Fayette-Ware, 69-55. FayetteWare led 37-24 at the half and maintained its lead in the second half. Douglas led the Tomcats with 15 points and Alandis Delk added 12. • The Tomcats traveled to Martin last Friday and

Lady Warriors rally past Munford By JEFF IRELAND jireland@statesgraphic.com The Haywood Middle School girls team got its biggest challenge of the season last Thursday in Tipton County. Munford Middle School led Haywood by 10 points early in the fourth quarter, but Haywood answered with a 15-3 run sparked by Jamira Shutes and left town with a 36-35 win. Haywood moved to 14-0 overall and 9-0 in conference play with the win. The conference tournament begins this week in Dyersburg. Munford had a chance to send the game into overtime, but missed a free throw with four seconds left on the clock. Haywood trailed 27-17 when Wandaryku Young

The Haywood boys moved to 14-0 and 9-0 with little trouble, jumping out to a 9-2 lead after one quarter en route to a 45-16 victory. Jalin Turner scored

eight points in the second quarter, including six straight, as Haywood built a 22-7 halftime lead. Turner finished with 10 points. Haywood held Munford Middle to no field goals in the first and third quarters and led 29-8 after three quarters. Shuraveun Hines led Haywood with 13 points and Dedric Boyd added eight.

Hillville - Eurekaton News By Vicki Williams The Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Women met on Wednesday, January 9, in the home of Barney and Vickie Garrett. The ladies were treated to a wonderful meal by Vickie Garrett. The ladies planned for the 2013 year. Those in attendance were Barbara Hayes, Lillie Goodman, Marcia Watson, Peggy Lewis, Sue Goodman and I. Twenty eight senior adults enjoyed a fish fry at the home of Jerry and Brenda Morris on Goodman Road Thursday, January 17. The Scratch and Dig is still up and running at the Hillville Community Center. Whatever your need may be I am sure Ms. Opal Watson can help you out. For more information, contact Ms. Opal at 2549295. The Haywood County Relay for Life Committee and Team Captains met Thursday, January 10, at the Delta Room. I attended on behalf of LASCO. The Relay for Life event has been scheduled for Saturday, June 8. Travis, Krystle and I traveled to Dyersburg Saturday, January 12, to

attend the 4th birthday party of our great niece, Gracie Williams. My niece, Hayley Roten, enjoyed spending the weekend with her friend, Georgia McBride and attended church at Mt. Pleasant Sunday January 13 and rode home with Travis and I from church. Following church Sunday, January 13, Travis, Krystle and I visited with Aunt Pattie Coburn in Crestview Nursing Home. Sue Goodman and I traveled to Alamo Saturday, January 19 to attend the Brownsville District UMW Spiritual Growth Retreat. Lindia Speer was the facilitator on the Sermon on the Mount. Danny and Marcia Watson were also in attendance. Sympathy to the family of Mr. Jimmy Bishop, Mrs. Virginia Fletcher, Mrs. Deborah Coulston, Mrs. Willie Holloway, Mrs. Annie Dancy and Mrs. Johnnie Gill, in the loss of their loved ones.

Lynn Whittiemore, Enid Powell, Dorothy Bruce, Pattie Coburn, Anneli Meyers, Roscoe Martin, Ceree Canady, Carol Bruce, Christine Glover, Odis and Bonnie Elrod, the nation and the community, In closing, “How are you living up to our family name: Christian?” This is our Thought for the Week as published in the Upper Room Directory by Stephen Wilson of Ohio. In the Bible we read of various people receiving new names. God changed Abram to Abraham, Sarai to Sarah, Jacob to Israel and Saul to Paul. All of these people experienced a dramatic change in their relationship with God, and their changed names reflected on that experience. Jesus knows everything about each of us. He knows the good things and the bad things, Jesus knows us, loves us and picked out the perfect name for each of us. Our name CHRISTIAN shows that we have been changed and that we have been transformed by God’s grace. If you have news to share, please contact me at 772-1885 after 5 p.m. Until next week, God bless.

Wellwood/Zion News By Denise Phillips The Great Commission was the focus of Dr. Mark McSwain’s message Sunday morning at Zion Baptist Church. This is a command not a request and if we will allow God to work in us, the world will take notice! Ricky Joyner did an awesome job leading the music during Rad’s absence in the first service. He sang, “Ole’ Ship of Zion” and Reese Ferrell sang, “Hear My Heart.” We also missed Brother Mark’s wife Dottie who was away on a conference with her job and Regina Thomas who was in the hospital. She came home Sunday night though, hopefully doing better. Bible Drill practice and Discipleship Training continues each Sunday night at ZBC. Brother Mark continued his “Lessons from the life of David” for the worship time that he is leading on Wednesday nights as well. This is a great study from I Samuel. Zion’s youth went bowling afterwards and had a blast as usual. Thanks to the adults who planned and helped chaperone this event. Dr. Randy Davis from the TBC will lead the

worship at Zion January 27th for the A.M. services. His Voice (Mitch Platz is a part of this group) will lead the praise and worship for the evening service at 6:00. We will also have a special guest (pianist) on February 10th. Everyone is invited to attend and worship with us. I didn’t get a count from the men’s community prayer breakfast Thursday morning; however Brother Tim McPherson from Poplar Corner led the devotion. Thanks to Brother Grover Westover from Harmony for the report although he was not able to attend. This faithful group would like to encourage all men to join them as they meet each Thursday morning at 6:00 at ZBC. Happy belated birthday wishes to Allison Witherspoon who celebrated her eleventh Wednesday at the Old Country Store with her family. She then had a swimming party with more family and friends at Union University Friday night. Vicky Garner celebrated her birthday Saturday night although it’s not until the 31st. We came

by on the way from Bells Olympic Steakhouse and she had a crowd of family and friends to join her for this special occasion. By the way, my brother Tommy Elrod shares the same birthday. I wish you both many, many more! Congratulations to David Conway on his move to Shorter University in Rome, Georgia. Although he is missed at Zion, he is certainly enjoying his job as Assistant Director of the Theater Department. Continue praying for sick folks and their families, military personnel and families, shut-ins, those mourning loss, and the leaders of our country. Also, don’t forget to pray for and support Kelly Stewart and Sara Littlejohn as they plan their mission trips to Romania. Pam Stewart would like to thank everyone for their donations. They have until the end of April to come up with the $2500. You may contact them directly to donate to this worthy cause. Call me at 772-4257 or email me at phillipsd6@ k12tn.net if you have news. People want to know!

Thought for the week: Hosea 6:3 Let us acknowledge the Lord; let us press on to acknowledge him. As surely as the sun rises, he will appear; he will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth.

Holly Grove News By Martha H. Jones “Christ Our Unity” was the subject of the message. Sometimes after being saved, doubts of salvation can plague one. What that occurs; the first thing to do is make sure you have been saved. We can never be saved by self-effort or just joining a church. Jesus is the way and only way to God. We must repent of our sins and ask Him to save us. Lack of assurance can come after being saved because of an incomplete obedience, and being unwilling to surrender to God. If there is a lack of effort to grow spiritually, it can bring doubts. The Devil likes to get us doubting our salvation for it makes us vulnerable to him. Hannah Sims, a senior at Crockett Co. High School, sang the special music. She has a beautiful voice. Anthony Johnson was baptized Sunday night prior to the services. Sunday was “Sanctity of Life” Sunday. A precious little baby is aborted every 4 minutes. It would cost 50 to 100 dollars or possibly jail time if one was caught killing an eagle, but mothers and fathers pay someone to

kill their own unborn babies, and obamacare wants tax payers to help pick up the tab. God, have mercy on America!! Happy Birthday to Josh McClinton, Davidia Jones, Courtney Marbry, Taylor Outlaw, Bradley Williams, Belinda Mitchell, Katie Hopper and Jan Outlaw. We express our sympathy to the family of Virginia Fletcher. Bobby and Mary Ann Hollingshead from Birmingham, Ala came by to visit with Dewey and Martha Jones last Thursday. Bobby grew up in Haywood County, and we happen to be cousins. We enjoyed talking about the Styers and Herbert families. Bobby’s mother Catherine was a Styers before marrying Thomas Holingshead. His maternal grandmother Mattie was a Herbert before marrying Lee Styers. We thoroughly enjoyed their visit. They were on their way to Alamo to visit some of Mary Ann’s relatives. I gave the wrong call letters for the reruns of “In the Heat of the Night” last week. If you are interested, they are

WGN. We also enjoy watching reruns of “Matlock” starring Andy Griffith. Danny and Brenda Simpson attended church at Antioch Baptist Church Sunday. Their granddaughter Elizabeth was baptized. She is the daughter of Vaughn and Hannah Kirby. Those on the sick list this week are James Lewis, who spent a few days at Vanderbilt; Sonny Carr is in the VA hospital in Memphis, Debbie Jones, Jan Wynn, Betty Doyle, Bobby Perry, Betty Barden, Leland Simpson and Virginia Taylor. Others are Jewel Overton, Nancy Campbell, Bobby Barden, Fletcher Lewis, Ray and Janie Hight and Justin Climer. Also include Lorene Qualls, Melanie Jones, Margaret Ann Fletcher, Gary Blair, Mildred West, Annalee Myers, Franklin Climer, Virginia Freels, Louise Coleman and Sandra Posey. I have never known a time when there was so many sick and seriously ill. This is no magic list. To help them let’s not neglect to carry them to the Lord in prayer.

I need to make a correction to last week’s column. I congratulated the Mt. Zion C.O.G.I.C church family on their new sanctuary. I misinformed you of their pastor’s name, which is Pastor William Northern. Sylvia and Renatha Ellison enjoyed a cruise recently. This was a much-needed vacation for the two being that they lost their mother, Ella Wee Ellison, in December. They were all very close to their mother and will miss her dearly. I continue to keep them in my prayers. My niece, Odessa Smith-Guinus, recently had knee replacement surgery in Detroit. She is doing very well and has even amazed the physicians with her progress! My niece, Ola Mae Shields, decided that it was time for the family to have a gathering on a happy occasion. She and her siblings, the children of my sister, the late Florence Ada Harris, hosted this spectacular event. All the other family members joined in with food and fellowship. I cannot begin to tell you about all of the food; it would take an entire news column to share all the wonderful delicatessen. We laughed and shared tears of joy! If you haven’t done anything lately with your family, consider doing it soon. This year has already been filled with various deaths and tragedies so don’t put off until Thanksgiving or Christmas! We had an amazing worship service this past Sunday with Pastor Harden speaking an awesome message. Sunday night our choir reunion was simply awesome and Pastor Franklin Collins was a wonderful host. I have to add that one of my

spiritual daughters, Gertie Turner, blessed our spirit in song. Minister Jeffrey Vaulx provided the musical ministry and the duo was spectacular! I truly missed my cousin, A.C. Pirtle, who has been sick recently and Mother Rosie Lee Hines whom neither miss a male chorus nor choir reunion. My condolences to the families of Johnnie Mae Singleton, (my classmate), Eddie West , I knew his grandmother well, the late Charlene Bullock Thomas, Jarvis Gause, the grandson of Shirley Newble and the late Hattie Gause, Martavious Robinson, the grandson of Josephine Hines and Willie Herman and Virgina Robinson. I knew all of these young men’s families and I continue to keep them in prayer. Sick and Shut In: Margero Harris, A.C. Pirtle, Mary Ann Nicholson (Louisville,KY.), Eddie Harden, Keith Bullock, Joseph Gray Jr., Cynthia Bullock, Connecticut “Connie” Lee, Mrs. Gail Wade’s mother, Mrs. Washington, Butch Wilson, Graves, Fletcher Lewis, Victoria Dickerson, Rosie Lee Hines, John Duckworth Sr. L.C. & Elma Pirtle, Luvenia Boyd, Edward Vaulx Jr. and

Annie Flora Forrest. Thought for the Week: “5 Things to do Instead of Complaining”1. Practice Gratitude. Research shows that when we count three blessings a day, we get a measurable boost in happiness that uplifts and energizes us. 2. Praise Others. Instead of complaining about what others are doing wrong, start focusing on what they are doing right. Praise them and watch as they create more success as a result. 3. Focus on Success. Start a success journal. Each night before you go to bed, write down the one great thing about your day. 4.Let Go. Focus on the things that you have the power to change, and let go of the things that are beyond your control. Give it up to God and trust Him with the outcome. 5 Pray. God wants to hear from you. He wants to have a personal relationship with you on a daily basis. Take your worries to Him and He will help you. When you are faced with the urge to complain or you are feeling stressed to the max, stop, be still, plug-in to the ultimate power of God and recharge. Scripture of the Day: “Do all things without complaining and disputing…” -Philippians 2:14 (NKJV)

By Marty Williams Bravo to all the current winners of the Annual Chamber Awards Banquet! It was an awesome evening! An update on one of the Jackson girls! Kimberly Jackson Briseno and her new husband, Captain Saul Briseno, are traveling out west to their new home in Arizona. They will be there for 6 months, so Saul can complete military intelligence school and then return to Tennessee. But…before his training starts…they will finally get to go on their official honeymoon to Bora Bora! Saul was shipped out, within days after their wedding! What a whirlwind life they are about to step into! Love is in the air as the Brownsville Arts Council presents the nationally acclaimed Gary Beard Chorale “A (Mostly) Broadway Valentine on February 3 at 3 p.m. in the Ann Marks Performing Arts Center. The Chorale is selected from the 95 voice Chamber Choir of Lindenwood Christian Church, Memphis. The chorale has sung throughout the U.S., including performances at New York’s Carnegie Hall. Tickets for the Concert are available at our area banks, Livingston’s, the Chamber and College Hill. 772-4883. We have two ecstatic sets of parents this week! Sammy and Michelle Tillman are glowing

over their daughter, Sarah, being crowned Homecoming queen last weekend and Jennifer Churchill is beaming over the fact that her son Gage, was crowned as Fayette Academy 2013 Basketball king! Congrats to you both!! Another little ‘happy’ is the fact Adam Sloan, son of Gary and Ginger Sloan, will be getting married in three months, to his best friend, Teri! Way to go Adam! Thrilled parents everywhere! On a sad note: Johnny Hathcock lost his mama, Ms. Laverne, suddenly this week and they are missing her already! Rita wants to thank everyone who has expressed their sympathy and brought food and checked on them. She said she and Johnny appreciate all your love and concern. Please accept our condolences, Rita and Johnny. Baby Louis Hill, son of Marie and Reed Hill, had his 2nd birthday recently and I bet you would not believe how delighted his paternal grandfather, Larry is!! Oh, my gosh! Happy birthday little Louis! Happy birthday to Lynn Veirs, Carlton’s wife! Cindy Jones, Casey Berry and friends made sure Cindy’s daughter, Ellie had a fabulous 8th birthday party at Sweet & Sassy! Every little girl was wearing a boa! Happy

birthday Ellie! Teresa Reece Russell and family helped her daddy celebrate his 79th birthday this past weekend, with all the kids and grand kids!! Guy, Elaine and Charlie Pryor could certainly use our prayers and support at this time. The day Charlie hopefully had his final surgery, Elaine and Guy stopped for something to eat later that night. While there, Elaine ended up being taken to the hospital! She is on the 8th floor and Charlie is on the 6th floor! I think Guy could use a little moral and spiritual help from all of us! Keep us posted! It looks like Tate Smith has been preparing his children for the next deer season already, at the shooting range! Christy and Fox had a fantastic time when Randle brought Vin home to visit. We also want to welcome Jim Ennis to Brownsville-Bells Funeral Home, as the new director! He says he wants to get involved in everything and anything in our community! I think we can help him, don’t you???

Sugar Creek

Senior Living Community News

By DeDe

Our Residents are all doing well. We have been just trying to stay warm. Our wonderful fire place has been on and we have some wonderful hot apple cider at the door. This is just the place to be especially on cold winter days when it is just too cold to get out. Everything that is needed is right here and if it isn’t our residents don’t have to worry about getting out. We go and get it for them. We would like to welcome a new resident to Sugar Creek. Zuline Blackburn moved in this weekend from Bells, TN. All of our residents and staff hope to make your new home a wonderful place to be.

Bro. Mike Moore came on Thursday to do our weekly Thursday Bible study. As we were getting everyone into the activity room, we ran out of comfy chairs. We started to put out a folding chair for Bro. Mike and our residents told us quickly that he needed a comfy chair also. Needless to say, he got that comfy chair. Our residents make sure our guests are well taken care of. All of our ladies that chose to be pampered came out and had their nails polished this week. They had a little Elvis trivia, which they did very well on. Jessie and Jennifer love to search for things to keep our

residents active and happy. On Friday we had a social with homemade boiled custard, made by our very own Jessie Howell, and cake. Who wouldn’t love to be at Sugar Creek? Our dietary staff would love to feed some of your senior groups. If you are a leader of a senior group, would you be willing to let Diane speak to your group about all the wonderful things Sugar Creek has to offer? If so, we would love to invite you to come and eat with us. Just give us a call 731-772-1616 to schedule your visit. We hope everyone has a wonderful week and enjoys reading our column. God Bless.

Libra rary ry Corner By Katherine Horn rn We have been getting a great deal of questions about tax forms. Here is what we know so far. We ordered our supply of all tax forms back in the fall. Due to last-minute legislation, the printing of tax forms was delayed. Due to this delay, we have received only a very small amount of forms that we had ordered. We do not know when the IRS plans to send us these forms. We will put the forms out as soon as we receive them. If you are unsure about which forms that you need, please contact a certified tax preparer or the IRS. You may access their website by going to the following URL www. IRS.gov If you go to a site that has anything

other than “.gov” at the end of it, it is not the legitimate IRS website. All government websites end with “.gov”, and not “.com”, “.net”, or “.org”. The staff members of the library are not able, under any circumstances, to give out any type of tax advice. Library staff cannot tell you which forms to use or how to fill them out. The library also cannot give out any type of “red letter” forms. Any forms that have red-lettering on it, like W2s or 1099s cannot be gotten from us. These forms must come from your employer. If your employer needs these types of forms, they can go to the IRS website and order these forms

for themselves. If your employer has told you that you have to get your W2s online, please make sure that you have the secured website information with you so that it may be accessed at the library. We cannot guess what the website address is; it is something that your employer must provide to you. Printing charges do apply when printing tax forms here at the library from the IRS website or from your employer. Any printing is $0.10 per page from the Black and White printer and $0.20 per page from the Color printer. Thank you for your understanding and patience. Happy Reading!
