On Friday, July 5, the Brownsville Police Department and the Haywood County Sheriff’s Department conducted a joint operation with the Multi-Jurisdictional Violent Crimes and Gangs Task Force,

and their efforts were targeted at Brownsville and Haywood County. During the operation, several individuals were arrested for various charges. Approximately two pounds of marijuana, four vehicles, one firearm, and $3,000 in cash was seized during Friday night’s operation. The following

individuals were arrested Friday night: Richard Callaway, 35, of 739 Madison Avenue, was charged with possession of schedule VI and schedule III with intent, drug paraphernalia, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Skyler Smith, 20, was charged with possession of schedule VI with

intent and paraphernalia. Carlisia Byars, 23, of 312 N. Bond, was charged with possession of schedule VI and II with intent and drug paraphernalia. A juvenile was arrested for possession of a firearm. Officers from the 26th and 28th judicial districts participated in Friday night’s operation.

Five named to Charter Commission at city board meeting BY JENNIFER WILLIS The mayor and board of aldermen met in regular session Tuesday, July 9. First on the agenda was the acknowledgement of the certified tax rate, which is $1.80 per $100 of assessed value. There was a public hearing on the proposed tax rate directly before the board meeting began, but no public comment was offered. The certified tax rate as defined by T.C.A is $1.7973 per $100, but the proposed 2013-2014 fiscal year budget required a tax rate of $1.80. The tax rate was adopted. Up next was the public hearing and second reading of Ordinance #899, Storm Water Management. There was no public comment during the hearing, and the ordinance was adopted. Next was the first reading of Ordinance #900, which is to adopt the fiscal year 20132014 budget and tax rate. Alderman Simmons made a motion to adopt, and Alderman King seconded. There will be

a public hearing and second reading of Ordinance #900 at the August board meeting. Next Resolution #852, the approval of the application for a TML Safety Partners Grant, was discussed and approved. The grant, if awarded, will be for $2000 to help provide a safe and hazard-free workplace for City of Brownsville employees. The city will be responsible for matching the $2000 grant fund, and the program will offer things like first aid training to all city employees. Resolution #853, which was to approve an interlocal agreement for the multijurisdictional task force, was discussed next. The agreement authorizes law enforcement agencies to provide one another with mutual assistance and continue partnering with the Multijurisdictional Violent Crime and Gang Task Force. The motion was carried, and the board approved the resolution. The last agenda item before departmental reports was the appointment of five members to the Metro Government Charter

Commission. Mayor Matherne’s appointees were Tom Archer, Jan McAdams, Patricia Taylor, Clinton Thomas, and John Willis. A roll call vote was taken, with wards one and three voting no. Wards two and four voted yes, and the mayor’s vote of yes passed the appointments. These five individuals join the other ten appointments made by Haywood County Mayor Franklin Smith. Also, Alderman Averyheart made his appointments to the Human Relations Council, and those individuals were Larry Douglas and Rev. George Seymore. During alderman reports, Alderman Simmons expressed concern over the fireworks show that took place at College Hill last week. He said he had many angry residents who were scared when the show began because the “booms were very large” and they were unaware that there was a firework show scheduled. He also said the fire department had to be called out for a couple of small grass fires. He stated he believed it should be carefully looked at before

anything like that is allowed to go on next year, and the mayor assured him it would be. Alderman Averheart expressed concern over people violating the noise ordinance with the music in their vehicles. He asked if the police officers were writing tickets for it, and Chief Lea assured him they were. He also expressed concern about activity from a vacant house in his ward. During departmental reports,

Chief Lea shared with the board the success of Friday night’s Multijurisdictional Task Force event. Several individuals were taken into custody on charges of illegal drugs, and one juvenile was arrested for possession of a firearm. They also seized almost two pounds of marijuana, several vehicles, and $3000 in drug money. The next regularly scheduled meeting of the mayor and board of aldermen is Tuesday, August 13 at 5:30 p.m.

Stabbing on Bradford leaves one injured BY JENNIFER WILLIS Officers from the Brownsville Police Department responded to a reported stabbing at 419 Bradford Street Wednesday, July 3. Police found the victim, 40-yearold Mark Taylor, of 817 Cobb Circle, with a stab wound to the center of his stomach. He was transported

from the scene to Jackson-Madison County General Hospital. Officers from the Criminal Investigations Division arrested 28-year-old Calvin Beasley, of 419 Bradford Street, and charged him with attempted second-degree murder. According to a press release from the Brownsville Police Department, it appears that the

altercation was the result of a conflict concerning illegal drugs. Beasley is being held without bond at the Haywood County Criminal Justice Complex.

Sheriff Bond hosts U.S. Attorney’s quarterly sheriff’s meeting on

Photo submitted Haywood County Sheriff Melvin Bond hosted more than 20 sheriffs and law enforcement officials

from across West Tennessee and United States Attorney Edward L. Stanton III during the U.S. Attorney’s quarterly

sheriffs’ meeting on Tuesday, July 9 at the Criminal Justice Complex. Since being appointed to his position by the

president in 2010, U.S. Attorney Stanton has made it a priority to meet with local law enforcement officials

a regular basis. “Front-line law enforcement agency heads like Sheriff Bond and his deputies are key partners in our efforts to protect the citizens of West Tennessee from international and domestic terror threats, violent crime, and the illegal drug trade,� said U.S. Attorney Stanton. “During these meetings, we provide critical information and meaningful training to assist them in performing their duties. We also take the time to listen to what our local and state partners need from our office. No one knows Haywood County and its communities like the law enforcement officials who live, serve, and protect there, and we want to give them and all the sheriffs in West Tennessee the tools they need to

keep our citizens safe.� During the meeting, the head of the U.S. Attorney’s Office’s Counter-Terrorism Unit, AUSA Fred Godwin spoke about the threats posed by international and domestic terrorism and cautioned officers to remain vigilant. Sheriff Bond said meetings like this are an important resource for his office and the men and women who serve. “Having the support of U.S. Attorney Stanton and his team is helping make Haywood County a safer place to live and work,� said Sheriff Bond. “We can identify felons and thugs who are the worst of the worst in our community, and if their crimes meet the relevant standards, they can be prosecuted federally, where there are stiff sentences without parole.�

Trooper rescues missing elderly woman BY JENNIFER WILLIS jwillis@statesgraphic. com Grant Montgomery, and Interdiction Plus Trooper with the Tennessee Highway Patrol, had finished his shift patrolling in the Brownsville area and was headed home on Tuesday, July 1.

Just before 10:00 p.m., Trooper Montgomery discovered 81-yearold Maggie McDoe inside of her Toyota Camry, which had left the roadway, on State Route 76 near the Haywood Park Industrial Complex. McDoe, who had been reported missing from Shelby County, was attempting to

return to the roadway, but was unsuccessful due to a steep embankment. Trooper Montgomery saw the tires on McDoe’s Camry spinning and creating smoke, and activated his blue lights and got out to assist McDoe. When Trooper M o n t g o m e r y approached the window of the vehicle,

McDoe appeared to be confused. He concluded after speaking with her that she didn’t know her location, nor how she got there. At that point Trooper Montgomery requested EMS. After gathering a little more information, Trooper Montgomery contacted McDoe’s daughter, who

informed him that she had reported her mother missing to the Memphis Police Department earlier that morning. McDoe was transported to Haywood Park Community Hospital, and THP dispatch notified the Memphis Police Department that she had been found safe.

TDEC announces open enrollment for qualifying local program’s construction storm water permitting Program designed to build permitting efficiencies, improve water quality The Tennessee Department of Environment and C o n s e r v a t i o n announced today that the pilot period for the Qualifying Local Program has concluded and the department is now accepting new applications through an open, year-round enrollment. The QLP program is designed to build efficiencies in how construction stormwater permits are issued, while satisfying the permit requirements at both the state and local levels and improving overall water quality. During last summer’s legislative session, Rep. Ryan Williams (R-Cookeville) and Sen. Mike Bell (R-Riceville) sponsored and passed legislation through Public Chapter 1019 in the Tennessee General Assembly, allowing any eligible Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems to apply through TDEC to

become a Qualifying Local Program. The legislation became effective July 1, 2013, following the conclusion of the pilot period. “Last October, TDEC leadership joined Rep. Williams and local community officials in Knoxville for a ceremony formally announcing the first five communities to take part in the new stormwater permitting program,” said TDEC Commissioner Bob Martineau. “Those five pilot participants were the cities of Bristol, Cookeville and Knoxville, in addition to Knox and Washington counties. We are pleased to be in a position to open up the program to other Tennessee communities.” The Qualifying Local Program’s main intent is to eliminate the duplicative efforts of the current permitting process. Some of the most

significant benefits of a QLP include: A more streamlined and efficient process for managing construction stormwater by eliminating permit and review duplication at the local and state levels; eliminating additional effort at the state level for construction site operators by providing only one set of requirements to follow; and a more effective construction s t o r m w a t e r program resulting in greater water quality protection. In order to achieve QLP status, the MS4 must demonstrate that its construction stormwater program meets or exceeds the provisions of the state’s Construction General Permit. After being selected to participate in the QLP program, an MS4 would be able to administer its own stormwater c o n s t r u c t i o n permitting program at the local level without

duplicating the review and approval process at the state level. In turn, the site owners or operators of new construction activities within the jurisdiction of the qualifying MS4 will be required to submit paperwork and any fees only at the local level, potentially saving up to $7,500 in state fees and taking less time by eliminating the additional effort at the state level. Permit coverage through the QLP program will authorize the operator of the construction activity to discharge stormwater associated with construction activity under both the state’s Construction General Permit and the QLP’s construction stormwater program. Other required permits, such as Aquatic Resource Alteration Permits, will still be handled by TDEC. “TDEC recognizes there are many local jurisdictions

throughout Tennessee that have developed an effective construction stormwater program of their own and have a solid regulatory program in place,” said TDEC Deputy Commissioner Dr. Shari Meghreblian. “These cities are already designated as MS4s and are generally comprised of fast-growing urban communities. This program builds much needed efficiencies into the permitting process, improving customer service at the state and local level, while targeting resources where they are needed most.” Critical to the creation of this program was the establishment of a diverse stakeholder committee representing a variety of groups, including MS4s, professional a s s o c i a t i o n s , u n i v e r s i t i e s and members of government, development and

environmental communities. The advisory committee worked to develop the criteria and program incentives designed to encourage MS4s to achieve QLP status.

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service awards grant for work on deadly bat disease

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service today announced grant awards totaling $950,694 to twentyeight states for whitenose syndrome (WNS) projects. State natural resource agencies will use the funds to support research, monitor bat populations and detect and respond to white-nose syndrome, a disease that afflicts bats. “White-nose syndrome has spread rapidly from one state in 2007 to 22 states and five Canadian provinces this year,” said Dr. Jeremy Coleman, the Service’s national WNS coordinator. “These grants provide essential support to our state partners in responding to this disease. The research, monitoring, and actions made possible by these grants have yielded valuable results and insights for our national response to whitenose syndrome.” “This is one of the most devastating diseases affecting wildlife in eastern North America,” said Wendi Weber, co-chair of the White-

Nose Syndrome Executive Committee and Service Northeast Regional Director. “Best estimates indicate that it has killed more than 5.7 million bats.” First discovered in New York in the winter of 2006-2007,

the disease has spread rapidly through the eastern U.S. and parts of Canada, and continues to move westward. The Service is leading a cooperative effort with federal and state agencies, tribes, researchers, universities and other non-government organizations to research and manage the spread of WNS. In addition to developing sciencebased protocols and guidance for land management agencies and other partners to minimize the spread of WNS,

the Service has funded numerous research projects to support and assess management re c o m m e n d a t i o n s and improve basic understanding of the dynamics of the disease. Funding for grants was provided through the Endangered Species Recovery program. Proposals were received from 28 states requesting $1,042,938. All eligible requests were given at least partial awards, ranging

from about $7,000 to $47,500, for a total of $950,694. Tennessee was awarded a total of $47,500. A d d i t i o n a l i n f o r m a t i o n about WNS, the international disease investigation, and research can be found on the national WNS website at http://www. whitenosesyndrome. org/. The site contains up-todate information and resources from partners in the WNS response, current news and links


social media. America’s fish, wildlife and plant resources belong to all of us, and ensuring the health of imperiled species is a shared responsibility. We are working to actively engage conservation partners and the public in the search for improved and innovative ways to conserve and recover imperiled species.

Off the Beaten Path with Jerry Wilson

The right stuff Another anniversary celebrating the birth of the United States of America has just concluded and now the people of our nation are back doing business as usual. We also find ourselves dealing with some of the same questions that Americans have been pondering for years. Americans continue to debate quite frequently about whether or not America is a Christian nation. To answer this question requires an answer based strictly upon our judgment regarding the actions and activities of our citizens. We are definitely not a nation of sinless citizens. The Bible states that “If we claim that we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth. But if we confess our sins to Him, He is faithful and just to forgive us from all wickedness” (1 John 1: 8-9).While we are not a nation of sinless citizens; we are citizens of a nation that was founded upon Christian principles. This is not necessarily an opinion but a reality once we become reacquainted with the founded fathers. George Washington, our first president stated, “It is the duty of all

nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor.” Joseph Story, a U.S. Supreme Court Justice appointed by President James Madison and the Father of American Jurisprudence is credited by historical sources with this statement: “One of the beautiful boasts of our municipal jurisprudence is that Christianity is a part of the common law….There never has been a period in which the common law did not recognize Christianity as lying at its foundation….I verily believe Christianity necessary in the support of civil society.” Our constitution and the American public won support from some foreigners as well. Alexis de Tocqueville, a French author of Democracy in America, marveled at his findings that resulted from American observations in 1831. He is credited with this statement: “The Americans combine the notions of Christianity and of liberty so intimately in their minds that it is impossible to make them conceive the one without the other…. In France I had almost always seen the spirit

of religion and the spirit of freedom pursuing courses diametrically opposed to each other, but in America I found that they were intimately united, and that they reigned in common over the same country.” How did the Bible rate in the minds of the founding fathers? John Jay, the first Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court and one of the three men responsible for writing the Constitution declared, “The Bible is the best of all books, for it is the word of God and teaches us the way to be happy in this world and in the next. Continue therefore to read it and to regulate your life by its precepts.” “Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for the rulers:” These statements and quotations from only a few of our founding fathers are nowhere near the tip of the iceberg. If you should be interested in reading more, America’s God and Country Encyclopedia of Quotations, ed. William J. Federer, would be a good choice for your library.

Memories to (hopefully) last a lifetime Chuck and I do certain things with our children in hopes that it will create memories that will last them a lifetime. For instance, we hope that they’ll always remember daddy teaching them to fishing out on our farm, and mommy teaching them how to make cookies and homemade biscuits (their favorite to make, and I’m pretty sure it’s because it looks like a flour bomb exploded in my kitchen when they’re done). We hope they’ll remember the tradition of getting together with Aunt Kristine and the boys to make sugar cookies for Santa…and the list could go on and on. We feel that it is important for our children to have a happy childhood full of memories to look back on. And mommy hopes that someday they will share some of the same things with their children. We’re not the only ones who help ensure that they have happy memories. Chuck’s family and mine do as well. They’ll remember their Grandpa letting them do things that their mom would NEVER let them do, like riding down the driveway on

a creeper and crashing into the ditch on the other side of the road. (Granted they had a blast and Grandpa watched them closely, but I still would say no!) They’ll remember planting flowers with Nannie, and following Papaw around the yard when he’s working, and playing with 75-yearold (ok, that may be an exaggeration) jacks with Nana. They’ll remember trips to Aunt Mary’s house and catching tiny fish at Lake Barkley. Aunt Mary’s house is also where Sarah learned to drive a four-wheeler all by herself. They’ll remember visiting Uncle J at the fire station, and beating him up when he stops by the house. The whole point is that we try so hard to ensure they have happy memories, but sometimes the best memories just happen. And that’s exactly what happened on Independence Day. We usually have a family cookout, but that didn’t happen this year because everybody had so much other stuff going on. But, my sister called and asked if we wanted to get together and watch fireworks that night. We generally don’t buy a lot

of fireworks because the kids, especially Jacob, don’t like loud noises. They’ll play with the little pop-its, or hold a sparkler, but that’s about it. If we light any bigger fireworks, they sit with their ears covered and complaining about the noise. So this year we headed to Aunt Kristine’s, all climbed up on the flat part of the roof, and sat on blankets eating ice cream and watching fireworks go off all over the city. (I hate heights, and was the only one nervous about being up there) It was the four of us, Kristine and her boys, and Kelsey and Chris. At around 9:30, we decided to ride out to the edge of town, drop the tailgate to Chuck’s truck, and see how many we could see from there. We could see fireworks all across the city! (And the noise was almost non-existent from where we were) It was beautiful! I hope it turns into an annual tradition. So, I guess the moral of the story is that sometimes the best memories, for us grownups too, happen when we least expect it. Enjoy life, make the best of it, and most importantly, have fun doing it!

Wearer Beware

As just about everyone knows, and as I have mentioned in this column a number of times, what a person wears has an enormous influence on what other people think about him or her, sometimes in obvious ways, but sometimes in an unknown subtle fashion. A new study done with men’s T-shirts illustrates this. A group of women were shown several photographs of men wearing three different T-shirts and were asked to rate each man according to attractiveness, health and intelligence. The three different shirts were identical except that one set had a large “T” emblazoned across the front of it, another had an inverted “T” across it and the third set was plain. So what do you think? If you guessed that the men were judged to be more attractive when wearing the shirts with the large, upright “T”s on them, you were correct. They were judged to be 12% more attractive than the same men wearing plain shirts, and those wearing shirts with the inverted “T” were judged to be 12% less attractive. Those wearing the upright “T” were also evaluated as 12% healthier than those wearing plain shirts, and again, those wearing the inverted “T” were guessed to be 12% unhealthier. The attractiveness/ healthy perceptions of the upright “T” had the greatest effect on men whose body shapes indicated they were “out of shape.” Oddly, all three groups were adjudged to have the same degree of intelligence. Same men - different T-shirts and different results. The reason for these results, the researchers concluded, is that women find men with a v-shaped torso (supposedly a sign of masculinity) more attractive than others, and a large “T” across the chest would exaggerate, or negate that image, depending on which way it was turned. You are, to a great extent, what you wear, at least in the eyes of other people. Study after study has shown that people size you up very, very quickly. Indeed, all of us, whether we are conscious of it or not, make snap judgments about people according to the clothes they wear. We may not know why, but within three minutes of meeting someone, according to people who study such things, we

have already decided who, and what, they are. How do we come to such rash decisions about people? Their physical appearance, hugely influenced by what they wear, accounts for 87% of our impressions; their body language accounts for another 8 percent, and what they say, and how they say it, only comes in at only 5 percent. Can you change a negative first impression? Yes, but it takes a full 20 minutes to undo a bad initial impression. In today’s world, you will seldom get that much time. Furthermore, what we wear not only affects everyone else’s opinion of each of us, it also affects what we think of ourselves. Researchers have identified a phenomenon called “enclothed cognition.” It means “the systematic influence that a person’s clothing has on the wearer’s psychological processes,” meaning, what your clothes say to you, rather than about you. In one study, researchers had participants put on white coats and then take tests. When told the coats were “doctors’ coats” the participants scored significantly higher and made fewer errors on exams they were then given than they did when told the coats were “painters’ coats.” My mother, no psychologist, but who knew a great deal about psychology, knew this intuitively. Once an aunt who lived in Memphis went into a deep depression, and my mother announced one night that she was going to get on the train to Memphis the next morning to “take care of Evelyn.” “What do you think

you can do for her,” my dad sneered? “I’m going to make her dress up and go shopping with me, and while we’re out, we’re going to get her hair fixed,” replied my mother. My dad hooted at that, but guess what. A few days later my mother returned in triumph. It seems that when she got all fancied up, Aunt Evelyn saw herself in a new light, and for the rest of her life she credited my mom with “curing me of that horrible depression I had that summer.” When people dress differently, they shift their internal selves. Novelist Harper Lee once said that when she met Gregory Peck she “knew” he was all wrong for the part of Atticus Finch. Too sallow, too casual, but she said that when he put on Atticus’s clothing and glasses he was suddenly transformed. He “became” Atticus Finch. Many, many actors have said that this happens to them when they don costumes for their parts. So the enclothed cognition people tell us not to dress the way we feel, but to dress the way we want to feel, to wear clothes that make us feel powerful, wealthy or whatever else it is we want to be. Clothes matter, even if you are only wearing a T-shirt, as I mentioned earlier, and by the way, I’ve been thinking about that study. Do you think it’s possible that the women in the study preferred the guys wearing the large, upright “T”s because they thought they were UT men? No? Well, Go Vols anyway.

Weekly Devotional ³So then, brothers, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.² Rom. 8:12-13 Think of your life as a city built with a protective wall around it. The only way into the city is through the gates. You have the gate of your eyes, your ears, and your mind. If something wants to enter and feed your flesh so that it is stronger as it wars against God¹s spirit in you, it will enter through those gates. What you see, hear, and allow your mind to dwell on, becomes part and parcel to how you wage war against sin and your flesh. And make no mistake, your worst enemy in this world is not Satan, it is your sin. Satan cannot have even a foothold in tempting you if it were not for your flesh and your sin. You are either killing sin or sin is killing you. Jason Velotta - Christ Church ASSEMBLY OF GOD DANCYVILLE ASSEMBLY OF GOD 13925 Hwy 76 North FIRST ASSEMBLY OF GOD 700 N.

David and Pam White are finally home after leaving June 20 traveling west with a group from Tipton County. Their first stop was in St. Louis, Mo where they toured Anheuser Busch and then headed to Independence to see the Harry Truman Library and Museum. Next stop was St. Joseph to the Patee House and Jesse James House. From there they went to Mitchell, SD touring the Corn Palace and The Badlands National Park and Wall’s Drugstore (the most famous drug store in America). Next day touring Mt Rushmore, Custer State Park seeing the mountain carving of Crazy Horse, which was started in 1948 and only the head is completed to date!

Next, they arrived at Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons, enjoying a covered wagon ride at the BAR-T-RANCH and cookout in Jackson Hole. Leaving Cheyenne,

they traveled through Lincoln, and Kearney, Nebraska, onto Branson, Mo and Kansas City. They stopped in Little Rock, Arkansas on Sunday where David arranged for his son, Bradley and Amanda to meet them for lunch.

Union News

By Denise Phillips I hope everyone had a wonderful Independence Day. We were blessed with another grandson, Levi Parker Phillips and had granddaughter Alivia visiting with us a few days, but all are home now. Congratulations Justin and Britany! Zion’s senior adults traveled to Greens, Beans, and Taters in Henderson to eat Tuesday. We thought Levi would be born in time to go over and have lunch with them, but we didn’t make it. We enjoyed lunch with Justin and Tommy and Judy Elrod in the hospital cafeteria. I am sure the seniors had a great time thanks to Elsie Haynes and Ray Ellington! Due to the holiday there was no prayer breakfast Thursday morning, but I’ll bet those faithful men were praying somewhere. This group meets each Thursday at 6:00 at ZBC and all men are invited to come and join them. Norma Austin and Marcus Witherspoon and family traveled to Beech Lake to spend the fourth with Jessie who was already there camping for the week. I am sure they missed Chris Austin and his family but they were in Louisiana with Rylee playing baseball.



By Sylessie Ross I hope that everyone had a safe and fabulous 4th of July and did not forget the purpose of the celebration. We must continue to show great appreciation for our men and women that serve this country both past and present. My children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren were all with me for the 4th of July. We had plenty of food and I truly enjoy always having my family with me. Nita Rice, brother Troy Currie and her grandson J.T. were home from Des Moines, IA for the holiday. Get well wishes to Bernadine Hill-Brown who was involved in serious car accident this past Friday. She suffered some serious injuries but is home re cooperating. Cudo’s to Carolyn Chism Reed for being an outstanding hostess over the weekend for the Chism family reunion. Shaun, Willie and I attended the festivities on Saturday. It was spectacular. I have never seen so much food at any function like this in my life! The food and fellowship was marvelous

and I know it had to be at least 150 plus that were in attendance which took place Saturday at Carolyn’s house. The fish fry took place Friday at her daughter and sonin-law’s house, Wanda and Reggie Simms. Alaise Jones-Webber was home last weekend. She and some of her grandchildren were on the way to Dallas, TX to a church conference and to spend time with her daughter Dana. She flew back to Detroit this past Friday.

(St. Louis, MO), James Henning (Nashville) Thought For The Week: “Every” Every moment gives you something to learn. Every moment gives you something good and helpful and fulfilling to do. Every day gives you opportunities for enriching life. Every day gives you new ways to experience life’s beauty. Every situation gives you the chance to make a positive difference. Every turn of events gives you new ways to lift life higher. Everywhere are people who can benefit from what you can do, from what you have to say, and from what you’re able to give. Every time you offer kindness, you add new positive energy to all of life. Every feeling, every experience, every sight, sound and aroma reminds you of how miraculous your life is. Every thought can give you a new, fresh and powerful perspective. Everything there is, dances gleefully and wondrously in front of your eyes. Delight in it all, and make it all even better.

UT Ex Extxtetension The Relationship between paper use and forest sustainability By Walter Battle There’s a great debate developing concerning paper usage in relation to developing “greener” habits. Many e-mails end with taglines that discourage printing. The messages generally have a picture of a tree, with the implication that reducing paper usage is good for the environment because it reduces demand for harvesting trees. However, those employed by the forestry industry will point out the merits of paper and how harvesting pulpwood (which is generally used for paper production) is a best management practice to grow/sustain the high value species located in the planting. In the University of Tennessee’s “Forestry, Wildlife, and Fisheries Update” newsletter (April 2012) Professor Adam Taylor, shared some light on the subject. He wrote that if the goal is to minimize environmental impact, then certainly not printing an email

message is better than printing one. Taylor went on to write that reducing consumption is the best of the ‘reduce, reuse and recycle’ options. The forestry professor did state however, the implication that not printing is good because it ‘saves trees’ is misguided: Citing that trees are a renewable product from forests that are (in most of the world) not being deforested. A better reason for reducing unnecessary printing is to reduce the consumption of nonrenewable resources (primarily related to energy production) that are required in addition to the wood fiber. Taylor suggested that the energy-use associated with paper production and use is relatively small. He went on to cite a Pitney Bowe’s study of (paper) mail, which included all the energy inputs involved with manufacturing paper, printing and transporting the mail, found that the energy we use to power a refrigerator for a year

is equivalent to receiving over 5000 letters in the mail. The professor pointed out however, that there are many other considerations in regard to printing or not printing, such as the permanence and security of paper copies compared with electronic storage and the personal preference for reading on screen or reading a paper copy. These considerations will likely be more important for most people that the energy saved by not printing. In closing Taylor reminded us that paper is a biodegradable, renewable, sustainable product made from trees. Growing and harvesting trees provides jobs for millions of Americans. Working forests are good for the environment and provide clean air and water, wildlife habitat and carbon storage. Due to improved forest management, we have more trees in America today than we had 100 years ago.

Heath and Julie Hopkins, Hayden and John from Hernando, along with Alan and Debbie Jones and Jennifer joined Dewey, Lorie and me for a Fourth of July celebration. Alan made the homemade ice-cream. Julie and the kids stayed over the weekend and attended church at Holly Grove Sunday. Those on the sick list needing our prayers are Danny Haynes who is scheduled for surgery, Louise Autry in a Jackson hospital, Janie Fisher is home after a stay in the hospital. Others are Mary Ann Ballard, Betty Barden, Virginia Taylor, Jimmy Grammar, Melanie Jones, Fletcher Lewis and Ronny Thomas. Also include Jerry Holt, Elizabeth Canady, Gary Gene Hayes,

Lynn Fulbright, Louise Coleman, Bobby Perry, Monica Elrod, Hayden Baynes, Charlie Roland and Mary Jane Watson. Our vegetable garden is coming along and looking pretty. Thanks to Jay Hopper for coming and tilling it for us. I picked several yellow squash. The zucchini are growing in size, and the tomatoes and string beans will soon be ready for picking. The youth and leaders from Holly Grove Church told of their recent trip to Oklahoma and the Cherokee Indian Reservations Sunday night. They showed slides of the trip and reported that eight children were saved; three during V.B.S. Brother Ralph Brown accompanied our youth, along with Ann Faulkner, Christy Houy, Joshua McClinton and Katie Hopper. Brother Charles Pratt, Director of Haywood Association, and his wife Linda helped to organize the trip and worked with them. The workers and many of the youth spoke concerning the trip.

Allen News By Sandi Bishop Our mission team is back from Oklahoma left June 29 and got back July 5. While they were there, they held revivals at four churches, had Vacation Bible Schools, put a tin roof on a church and worked on wiring on another church. That’s a lot to get done in just six days! More information next week about who made the trip and more details about their mission work. Welcome back - we missed all of you! Sonny and I were blessed to sing on Sunday at Poplar Springs Baptist Church in Lexington - what a loving congregation! Many youth and young couples with small children - the future of our churches. Thanks so much to Linda and Frazier Russell for the invitation to sing. The choir sang the special music “In Remembrance” on Sunday morning, which went right along with the observance of the Lord’s Supper. Whenever I think of our Allen Angel for this week, it reminds me of the Ray Boltz song, “Thank

You For Giving To The Lord”. Marcia Killen is such a tireless worker with our kids at Allen - always planning and working in children’s church and doing so many other things behind the scenes that most of us don’t even know about. But I do know this - Marcia has had an impact on so many young lives through working with the children that she’ll probably never know about here on earth - but I truly believe that there will be folks in Heaven coming up to her and thanking her for what she taught them and for being instrumental in them coming to know the Lord. Greg, Taylor, and Colbie be proud of your wife and mom - she’s a treasure to all of us at Allen! Linda Merrick, Loyce Duffey and Cody Green just returned from a trip to Florida. Went to Clearwater to visit with Linda’s daughter and sonin-law, Tracy and Richard. Then went to a small theme park in Orlando called “Holy Land Experience”. Linda said the theme park was so nice, with many

things to see and do, including some wonderful plays/dramas. But she said that Cody wore her out wanting to play puttputt golf at the course right next to their hotel - said he wanted to play every day! Our prayer list this week includes the Vann family (Peggy, Thomas and Bryant) - involved in a terrible automobile accident in middle Tennessee. Pray for David Duke, Jerry Curtis, Poodle Cates, Carolyn Lovelace, Beanie Keltner, Derek Darling, Anita Davis, Nikki Ward, Steve Darnaby, Fletcher Lewis, James Byrum, James Peterson, John Kirkpatrick, Kamryn Green and Reba Ward also for the Wayne Craig family and the Jenkins family in their losses of loved ones. Happy Birthday to Dalton Byrd, Betty Johnson, Jerry Glover and Carolyn Danley. And finally - if you ever think you can’t do anything for the Lord, just remember this - “The Lord is not necessarily looking for ability….he’s looking for availability”.

Senior Living Community News By DeDe

We hope everyone had a great 4th of July long weekend. Our residents enjoyed a wonderful cookout on July 3. Jack Fletcher and Jessie Howell grilled steaks for all the residents and staff. Thanks to Rose Lott for the use of her big grill. Noodle volleyball seems to be our go to game every Friday. If we have something else planned one of the residents always asks why we aren’t playing noodle volleyball. Nathan Outlaw played for the first time a few weeks ago and he is now hooked. Our men seem to want to play more than the women. Maybe it is the competitive side of

them coming out, but now let Carolyn Freeman join in and it is on. She is just as competitive as the men are. David Smith and his wife Nancy came by to sing for our resident this week. Of course we always enjoy their company. It is like they are part of the family. Summer is finally here and so are the temperatures, so please make sure you check on your elderly family and friends. Make sure their homes are cool. If you are headed out for vacation and are worried about your loved one, then give us a call. We have our respite room available and would

Holly Grove News

“What to do in Troubling Times” was the subject of the message. The Bible informs us that we will pass through many troubling times on our way to heaven. The believers are not immuned to these times, but we have our heavenly Father to see us through. David was living in desperate days, and there may be some desperate days ahead of us. Only 40 % of the work force have full-time jobs. We are all vulnerable to sin when times get hard. Desperate times can bring out the worst in us. The Scriptures warn, let everyone who stands take heed lest they fall. When we are weak, temptation can overtake us. God will forgive and deliver us when we sincerely confess our sin, rely on Him and allow Him to lead. The choir sang, “Behold Our God” for special music under the direction of Brother Ralph Brown. The Fidelis Sunday School class welcomed Mrs. Edna Brooks as a visitor. Happy Birthday to Vincent Maddox, Peyton


love the opportunity to care for your loved one as you enjoy your vacation. Ecclesiastes 3:1-22 For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; ... Have a great week everyone.

Hillville - Eurekaton News By Vicki Williams “Every hour offers opportunities to pray.” This is our Thought for the Week as published in the Upper Room Devotional by Carol Purves of England. Prayer can be as natural and continual as breathing. Prayer is communication with our Creator. We would not ignore a human friend, so why would we ignore God? The method of prayer is not important but that we pray continually is. Hopefully everyone had a safe and great 4th of July. I sure did enjoy my four day weekend of rest and relaxation. Mt. Pleasant UMC revival usually begins the third week of July but due to expansion and renovation to the Fellowship Hall the revival is being postponed until further notice. My nieces, Emily Watson and Hayley Roten have spent the last two Saturday nights with me and went to church with us on Sunday. Emily, Hayley and I enjoyed bowling at the Family Bowling Center in Jackson on Saturday, June 29. We bowled a couple of games, they played laser tag, rode the bumper cars and went skating. Oh, how I wanted

to get out there with them on those skates but was scared I would break something. Friday evening, Travis and I joined Mama (Olivia Watson), Doug Jones and Emily Watson at J’s Diner for supper. Then we went to Ricky and Lori Ellington’s for a spectacular firework show. Tuesday evening, Gerald Lewis, Randy Goodman and Travis met at Mt. Pleasant to work on the renovation and expansion of the Fellowship Hall. Sue Goodman and I supervised. Shannon Peterson and Jerry Lewis stopped by also. While riding bikes at O’Neil Lake on Sunday, June 30, Mr. Bennie Morrison, Ms. Virginia Wolfe and Lorraine came driving by and stopped to chat with us (Sue Goodman, Aleta Bradford and I). Mr. Bennie led us in a chorus of “This Little Light of Mine” on the banks of O’Neil Lake. I think we may have scared our feathered friends off. Just goes to show Mr. Bennie can lead anyone at any time at any place in song. Those who rode bikes were Randy and Sue Goodman, Phillip and

Aleta Bradford, Renea and Elizabeth Townsend, Emily Watson, James Chilcutt and his daughter Ashlee, Travis, Krystle and I. Mama (Olivia Watson) and Doug Jones were also there but didn’t ride bikes. Afterwards we went to Taco Bell for supper. Congratulations to Tim and Lisa Lewis on the birth of their first grandchild, Elora Kate. Elora is the daughter of Thomas and Kristen Lewis Carlton. Jerry and Peggy Lewis are proud great grandparents also. Prayer list includes Carol Bruce, Claude Sensabaugh, Dennis Evans, Nancy Smith, Shirley Morgan, Billie Kirkland, Christine Watson, my Uncle Perk Watson, Annette Goodman, Richard Kirkland, Enid Powell, Dorothy Bruce, The Nation and the Community. Please keep the families of Mr. Joseph William Lane, Mr. James Martin, Jr. and Mr. Russell Lein in your thoughts and prayers in the loss of their loved ones. If you have news to share, please call me at 772-1885, after 5:00 p.m. Until next week....God bless.

Crestview News We welcome Mr. Herbert Noftz to our facility and hope he enjoys his stay with us. Thank you volunteers for visiting us this week: Christ Temple ladies, Thornton Road Church of Christ, First Assembly of God Church ladies, and Community Temple of the

Living Church ladies. Our residents enjoyed the Fourth of July by having a red, white, and blue ice cream social. They always enjoy ice cream and they certainly enjoyed this special treat. Our resident of the month is Mrs. Louise Conner. Congratulations,

Mrs. Louise. Thought for the week: Whether the weather be fine of whether the weather be hot, whether the weather be cold or whether the weather be hot, we’ll weather the weather, whatever the weather, whether we like it or not. –Anonymous

Low interest home loans available for rural areas

Financial Competitive Act of 2013 passes house H.R. 1341, the Financial Competitive Act of 2013, passed the U.S. House of Representatives. The bill, sponsored by Congressman Fincher, requires the Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC) to conduct a study on the implementation of the Credit Valuation Adjustment (CVA) capital requirement on U.S. consumers. “The U.S. economy is in a fragile state. Our job in Congress is to undo any hurdles, fees, or foreign advantages that may cost the U.S. econ-

omy valuable jobs,” said Congressman Fincher. “The decision by the European regulators to exempt themselves from the CVA leaves the United States at a distinct competitive disadvantage.” Fincher continued, “This bill will clarify the impact the CVA exemption for EU financial institutions will have on the U.S. economy. We need folks around the world to know America is open for opportunity and advancement. In this country we promote

opportunity, not unfair regulations that kill U.S. jobs. We can’t afford to wait while Europe takes valuable market share away from American companies. ” H.R. 1341 enjoys bipartisan support and passed the House by a vote of 35424. It unanimously passed the House Committee on Financial Services by a vote of 59-0. The United States Chamber of Commerce and the Financial Services Roundtable both support this legislation.

Coming soon…Ellington Performing Arts Studio BY JENNIFER WILLIS jwillis@statesgraphic. com Lauren Perry Ellington is bringing something new to Brownsville and Haywood County this fall, and she is very excited about it! She will be opening the Ellington Performing Arts Studio in August, and will be offering hiphop dance classes and private lessons to help with dance, acting or cheer. When speaking with Lauren, it becomes apparent the amount of love that she has for performing arts. She’s always smiling, but when you get her to talking about dancing and acting, her smile gets bigger and brighter! “My love of performing arts began when I played Gretel in the ‘Sound of Music’ under the direction of Mrs. Sheri Richards in kindergarten,” said Lauren. “And I really wanted to be able to offer the younger children here the same opportunity to fall in love with dancing and acting.” Lauren has quite a bit of experience. She started in kindergarten, but really wasn’t involved in anything else until the seventh grade. And she hated that! But, there really wasn’t anything else offered that interested her. “There has always been ballet offered here, but I just wasn’t into that,” said Lauren. “I was more into the acting, as well as the more upbeat dancing, like what you do when you cheer.” Lauren played an orphan in “Annie” when she was in

seventh grade, Patty Simcox in “Grease” her freshman year, Winnie Tate in “Annie Get Your Gun” her sophomore year, Rose Alvarez in “Bye Bye Birdie” her junior year, and Cindy Gibson in “Back to the 80’s” her senior year. After graduating from Haywood High, Lauren went to Bethel University where she was an extra in “Christmas Carol” and played Louise in “Carousel.” Lauren was also a cheerleader from eighth grade through her senior year, and was a member of show choir during the course of her high school career. Lauren will offer classes hip-hop dance classes on Monday and Wednesday evenings. Children in grades one through three will be from 4:15 until 5:15 each night, and children in grades four through six will be from 5:30 until 6:30 each night. She only has 12 spots for each age group, and she’s already down to 11 in each, so call her at 731-443-0819 today to reserve your child’s spot! Classes are $7 each, and she requires that those fees be paid at the beginning of each

month. Deadline to sign-up is July 29, and classes will begin on August 5. “This will be hip-hop dancing, kind of like what you see cheerleaders doing,” said Lauren, “but I will keep it clean and will use appropriate music.” Lauren is planning two performances for this class, and is hoping that she can get them a spot at Fall Fest to show the community what they’ve learned! Lauren is also offering private lessons for cheer, dance, and acting by appointment. Fees are $5 for 30-minute sessions, and $10 for hour-long sessions. She is accepting those reservations now as well, but the deadline does not apply. She teaches private lessons as needed. Classes will be held at the Ellington School of Martial Arts, located at 111 Ellington Road. also noted Lauren that her studio would not interfere with the martial arts classes, and that they will still begin as usual on September 3. Lauren and her husband, Jacob, reside in Haywood County.
