County Commission to confirm Metro Charter appointments June 27 BY JENNIFER WILLIS firstname.lastname@example.org The Haywood County Commission met in regular session Monday, June 17. Now that the County Commission and the City Board has approved the formation of a Metro Government Charter Commission, the next step is to appoint people to that commission. County Mayor Franklin Smith informed the commissioners that they should plan on attending a special called meeting on June 27 where they will be asked to confirm
his appointments to the commission. Haywood County will have ten appointments to the Metro Government Commission, while the City of Brownsville will have five. There will also be a few year-end budget amendments presented on June 27. Commissioners also discussed how the six-year re-appraisal program would equal a county property assessment increase of $32,729,171 as a result of the increased value of farm acreage. The state certified tax rate, which is roughly $2.39,
is 19 cents lower than the 2012-2013 tax rate. The commissioners agreed to continue with the budget and tax rate until their 2013-2014 fiscal year budget work is complete. The commission voted to re-appoint Bob Kendrick to a four-year term on the Haywood County Utility Board. They also voted to change the county personnel manual to allow sheriff’s deputies to accrue sick time in twelve-hour increments since they work twelve-hour shifts. Lastly, fundraisers asking the county commission to
donate $9,200 for the establishments of a veteran’s cemetery in Henderson County
gave a presentation. The commissioners will consider the donation for next year’s budget.
Haywood County receives $3,325 archives grant BY JENNIFER WILLIS email@example.com Secretary of State Tre Hargett and his assistant were at the Courthouse on June 12 to present a check for $3,325 to the Haywood County Archives for supplies.

She learned procedures and Photo by Sam McCarver methods of preserving archival
materials. Shaw thanked the Secretary of State for the grant and for the willingness of the State of Tennessee to create such a program. Members of the Archival Commission for Haywood County are: Lynn Shaw, County Mayor Franklin Smith, County Clerk Sonya Castellaw, County Commissioner Charles Wills, Recorder of Deeds Steve Smith, Judge Roland Reid, Genealogist Debbie Sterbinsky, Wayma Richards, and Matt Edwards.

HUD awards $104,940 in housing counseling grants in Tennessee
HUD funds six Housing Counseling Agencies As part of its continuing effort to assist families and individuals with their housing needs and to prevent future foreclosures, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) today announced that six Tennessee housing counseling agencies will receive $104,940 in critical funding as part of the more than $40 million in housing counseling grants to 334 national, regional and local organizations. In addition to the funding to these state and local agencies, HUD is awarding nearly $29 million to national, regional and multi-state counseling agencies that may also have an impact in Tennessee communities. As a result of these grants and the additional funding they help leverage, more than 1.6 million households will have a greater opportunity to find housing, make more informed housing choices or keep their See current homes. list of all counseling agencies awarded funding today. “Make no mistake: these grants will do a lot of good,” said HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan. “The HUDapproved counseling agencies this funding supports are crucial in
helping families manage their money, navigate the home buying process, and secure their financial futures. The evidence is clear that housing counseling works. These grants are a smart investment to help families and individuals find and keep housing which helps promote neighborhood stability in the long term.” “These housing counseling grants in Tennessee provide direct and tangible assistance to assist families towards homeownership and more importantly helps to preserve current owners in their homes. It provides the kind of concrete brick by brick assistance that provides hope of a better future while also contributing to the neighborhood and community as a whole”, said HUD Southeast Regional Administrator Ed Jennings, Jr. More than $38 million in grant funds will directly support the housing counseling services provided by 27 national and regional organizations, 8 multistate organizations, 22 State Housing Finance Agencies (SHFAs) and 277 local housing counseling agencies. In addition, HUD is awarding $2 million to two national organizations to train housing counselors
who will receive the instruction and certification necessary to effectively assist families with their housing needs. Working in consultation with housing counseling industry stakeholders, HUD’s new Office of Housing Counseling substantially streamlined the application process for these grants. A number of procedural improvements were made to the application process and program requirements, which encourage the development of efficient and effective counseling programs and reduce the administrative burden on applicants. HUD awards annual grants under the housing counseling program through a competitive process. Organizations that apply for grants must be HUDapproved and are subject to monitoring and oversight to maintain their HUD-approved status. National and regional agencies distribute much of HUD’s housing counseling grant funding to communitybased organizations that assist low- and moderateincome families to improve their housing conditions. In addition, these larger organizations help improve the quality of housing counseling services and enhance coordination among
counseling providers. Read a summary of each grant, organized by state. HUD studies show the effectiveness of housing counseling. Last year, HUD released two reports on the impact of HUD-approved housing counseling for families who purchase their first homes and those struggling to prevent foreclosure. In both studies, HUD found housing counseling significantly improved the likelihood homeowners remained in their homes. Grant recipients utilize funding to address the full range of families’ housing counseling needs. This includes helping homebuyers and homeowners realistically evaluate their readiness for a home purchase, understand their financing and down payment options, and navigate what can be an extremely confusing and difficult process. Grantees also help households find affordable rental housing and offer financial literacy training to individuals and families struggling to repair credit problems that restrict their housing
options. In addition to providing counseling to homebuyers and renters, these organizations assist homeless persons in finding the transitional housing they need to move toward a permanent place to live. Finally, grantees also assist senior citizens seeking reverse mortgages or Home Equity Conversion Mortgages (HECM). These agencies provide counseling for the rapidly growing number of elderly homeowners who seek to convert equity in their homes into income that can be used to pay for home improvements, medical costs, and other living expenses. Housing counseling agencies support fair housing by assisting borrowers in reviewing their loan documentation, to avoid potential mortgage scams, unreasonably high interest rates, inflated appraisals, unaffordable repayment terms, and other conditions that can result in a loss of equity, increased debt, default, and even foreclosure. Likewise, foreclosure prevention counseling helps
homeowners facing delinquency or default employ strategies, including expense reduction, negotiation with lenders and loan servicers, and loss mitigation, to avoid foreclosure. HUD’s new mobile app allows smartphone and tablet users to locate housing counselors in their own area. HUD’s mission is to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable homes for all. HUD is working to strengthen the housing market to bolster the economy and protect consumers; meet the need for quality affordable rental homes: utilize housing as a platform for improving quality of life; build inclusive and sustainable communities free from discrimination; and transform the way HUD does business. More information about HUD and its programs is available on the Internet at www.hud.gov and you can also follow HUD on twitter @HUDnews, on Facebook at www. facebook.com/HUD, or sign up for news alerts on HUD’s Email List.

Off the Beaten Path with Jerry Wilson
On my honor It is now common knowledge regarding a recent change of policy within the Boy Scouts of America organization. Several weeks ago the organization changed its policy to accept gay participants but not adult leaders into the scouts. The policy change has broadened the gap even more between church and state. According to some reports the mixture of pros and cons of the policy change is about 5050. Most of the opposition according to these reports is coming from the Christian community which should come as no surprise. However, I am somewhat surprised that the amount of opposition within the Christian community is not much greater. Undoubtedly, the organization anticipated a certain amount of Christian fallout when it sent statements assuring the organization participants that it would fill the void left by the withdrawal of church support. Since the scout program is a private organization providing youth programs for the total community, it certainly has the right to establish such policy. And with the rulings and opinions upheld by the
federal courts as well as the U.S. Supreme Court, members of the faith community don’t seem to know what might happen next. There are serious concerns among remnants of the entire faith community that the powers-that-be in America are out to disallow members of religious groups to practice their faith outside of their worship community. There will continue to be a certain amount of support on the part of the religious community, including Christians, for the Boy Scouts of America. However, there appears to be a split in opinions coming from the Christian community regarding the change of policy handed down. First, there are those within the Christian faith who have all kind of problems supporting a youth program that goes against Biblical teachings. The Bible certainly makes pretty strong statements regarding that particular lifestyle. Those from that school of thought also feel that the Boy Scouts of America should change their oath which states, “On my honor, I will do my best
to do my duty to God and my country; to obey the scout law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.” Their biggest problem within the oath is found in these words, “On my honor, I will do my best to do my duty to God.” Those who appose the policy change ask the question, “How can I honor God by supporting an organization that accepts anyone who is openly opposed to submitting to His Word” and “How can we be assured that these participants would not attempt to recruit our children to their lifestyle?” There is also that other school of thought in the Christian faith that wants to know how we are to deal with those persons whose lifestyles are not compatible with biblical teachings. Would they be allowed to attend our churches and our worship services? As Christians, we are to proclaim the Word of God to all people. However, we must not add to it or take away from it. This is a Christian truth and it may also be one of the believer’s greatest challenges in this world in which we live.
I’m back!! Last week my column was missing, but I’m back in full force this week! I took a couple of vacation days the end of last week, and came back to work Monday ready to go! Last Thursday was dental check-up day for the kiddos. Jacob had a clean bill of dental health, but Sarah was a different story. She has to have a retainer to re-align her bite, and my poor girl was extremely disappointed that she couldn’t get it that day. She absolutely loves the dentist, and, believe it or not, is looking forward to getting her permanent retainer next month. I have a feeling she’ll change her mind once she actually gets it in her mouth. After the dentist, Holly and I took the kids for a little shopping. Jacob didn’t want to have any part of it, so it didn’t last long. He’s definitely his father’s child. He HATES to shop, unless it’s at Toys-R-Us, of course. So Holly took them swimming while Chuck and I took care of some
other errands. Friday night Chuck and I headed off to Memphis for the night while the kids spent the night with Nannie and Grandpa. I had a work conference that I was asked to attend on Saturday morning, so we went out to dinner and stayed in the hotel where the conference was being held. It was a very informative session on social media and the news. Saturday, after the conference was over, we headed back to my parent’s house to pick up the kids. From there it was off to Eddyville, Kentucky to spend the rest of the weekend with Chuck’s sister, Mary. We made it up there about 5:30, and after resting for a bit we took the kids fishing at Lake Barkley. They had so much fun fishing off of the dock and catching bluegill about the size of their little hands. When it was too dark to fish, we headed back to her house for an evening of catching up and relaxing.
Sunday morning started off with coffee on the deck (they just bought a beautiful house in the woods by the lake=perfect place for coffee). The kids were riding the fourwheeler and having a good time. Shortly before lunch, an epic Nerf gun war between all of us broke out. The eight of us, grown-ups included, ran around the house for over an hour laughing so hard it hurt. We were all so sad to have to leave Sunday afternoon, but Chuck and I both had to return to work Monday. This past Saturday was my grandmother’s birthday, and since I didn’t have a column last week I didn’t get the opportunity to wish her a “Happy Birthday” in it. So, “Happy Birthday” Nana! I love you very much! Also, Happy Father’s Day (again) to my amazing dad, as well as my husband! You are both such important people in my life, and I love you both!
Supposedly it was Mark Twain who first observed that the difference between the almost right word and the right word was equal to the difference between lightning and lightning bugs. A great difference indeed, and the English language, as it flows through the various rivers of humanity who speak it, can take some mighty confusing twists and turns. Thus, even educated people can, and often do, misuse and misunderstand what certain words mean. This seems especially true with regard to the often esoteric terms used in the law. I was reminded of this not long ago when a woman told me that she and her husband had been “robbed” the previous Sunday while they were at church. What it turned out she meant was that someone had broken into their house while they were attending services and stolen their television and laptop computer. That was a crime, actually two, and serious ones at that, but it wasn’t a robbery. It was an aggravated burglary and a larceny, or theft. A lot of people would probably have made the same mistake. Fortunately, most folks don’t have enough experience with having their homes burglarized to learn the nomenclature of crime, but whatever you call it, they were out a TV and a laptop, and they weren’t looking for a vocabulary lesson on criminal law terms at the time. Like most larceny victims, they just wanted their stuff back. So let’s see now; I’ve just used three words, robbery, larceny, and burglary, all associated with taking other people’s property, and maybe you aren’t too clear about their meanings either, so here goes. Generally, when you take another person’s property with the intent to keep it, the legal term for what you just did, is larceny. Traditionally larceny has been classified as grand (large) larceny or petit (small) larceny, depending on the value of the property taken. Grand and petit are words that come from the French language. We think of foreign legal terms as coming from Latin, and most do, but not all. Many of our legal practices come from Norman France, and some of the French words and terms came along with them. Today, in most states, Tennessee included, we call larceny what it is, theft. If you take another’s property from his person, or in his presence, by force or the threat of force, the theft becomes something else, a robbery. If you were armed with a deadly weapon at the time of the taking, it would have been an armed robbery, referred to in Tennessee as an aggravated
robbery. The term burglary, on the other hand, originally meant to break into a dwelling house, at night, for the purpose of stealing something or committing some other crime while inside. As time went on, however, the definition of the term was expanded to include entering any structure to commit a crime, day or night, and in most states, burglary of a motor vehicle is possible as well. If a burglar steals something while inside your house or outbuilding, that theft would be a separate crime. If you were at home when the breaking in occurred, and had the burglar threatened you as he or she took your belongings, it would have been a robbery, unless the burglar had a gun; then it would have been an aggravated robbery. For a taking to be a robbery, it has to take place in the presence of the person robbed. For theft/larceny or burglary, the victim need not be present at all. As a matter of fact, nearly all burglaries in America occur when the occupants are not home. Both burglaries and robberies are classified as felonies. So is theft of more than $500.00, but theft of property of a lesser value is classified as a misdemeanor. In Tennessee, felonies carry prison sentences of one year or more; misdemeanors carry jail sentences of 11 months and 29 days in jail or less. As you see, felonies are major crimes,
and misdemeanors are considered minor crimes. Unless you happen to be the victim of one, that is. Of course, the ultimate crime is murder, another term often confused with a related word, that word being homicide. A homicide is the killing of one person by another. In and of itself, homicide is not a crime. If someone kills another in selfdefense, for example, that is considered a justifiable homicide, as is the killing of an enemy combatant in a war. Some killings, of course, are criminal. Generally such killings are classified as manslaughters, or murders, murders being, generally speaking, intentional, while manslaughters, again generally speaking, are unintentional, but committed as a result of criminal negligence. Now if you think those terms I just gave you are confusing, you ought to try to read the legal definitions out of the code books, some of which are dense and convoluted beyond comprehension. Some historians say one reason legal language is so long winded and roundabout is that long ago legal documents were written for lawyers by scribes who were paid by the word, thus, they put as many in each document as it could hold. I, on the other hand, am being paid nothing for writing this document, so I think I’ll just end it here. But thanks for reading.

On this day, Hunter Ray Burroughs was among the graduates receiving their degrees. Hunter graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor
of Arts receiving Highest Honors in Physics and Math. Hunter also served as a Student Marshal for the ceremony. During a separate ceremony, Hunter was recognized by the Physics Department with the Underwood Memorial Award. This cash award is given to the most deserving and promising graduating senior or graduate student in physics. Also, Hunter was one of five people in the School of Arts and Science nominated for the Founder’s Medal, which is the highest honor in the School of Arts and Science. As a freshman, Hunter received the Henrietta Hickman Morgan Memorial Prize; this cash award is given to the most outstanding piece of original writing submitted by a member of the freshman class of the College of Arts and Science, Blair School of Music, the School of Engineering, or
Peabody College. His junior and senior years, Hunter was fortunate to work with Professor David Ernst and his associates on research projects relating to neutrino oscillations. This work led to his inclusion in three published scientific papers. It also led to his senior thesis. During his career at Vanderbilt, Hunter attained membership into Sigma Pi Sigma, the National Physics Honor Society. He was on the Dean’s List for all eight semesters with a final GPA of 3.966. Now Hunter plans on attending graduate school to further his education in the field of physics. Hunter is the son of Ray and Janna Burroughs.

Recently I spent a few days in Haywood Park Community Hospital by way of the Emergency Room. It was suggested that I be transferred to a larger hospital, but I refused. The care I received from the emergency room, lab girls, ﬂoor nurses and any staff I met, were super kind and caring. Professional on every level. Hats off to all of you who strive to give the patient care and service that has been forgotten in some of our larger hospitals. Thank you to Dr. Dowling and his staff for getting me up and going once again. Brownsville needs to wake up and realize what a privilege it is to have a hospital close by. They are closing hospitals every day in small towns. I pray we don’t lose ours. Sincerely, Barbara Dedmon Flores

“Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say?” – Jesus (Luke 6:46) Most of America claims to be Christian. Yet, only 18.7% of professing Christians in America regularly attend church. Only 14% say they read their Bible at least once a week. Of course, the common response is, “I don’t have to go to church or read God’s word in order to follow Jesus.” Technically, I guess that is true. Yet, God promises that when He saves a person He will replace their old heart with a new one and He will cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will be careful to observe My ordinances. (Eze. 36:27). Here is the question. How can you know His statutes without reading His word? How can you receive His ordinances without “receiving His ordinances?” My question is simple. If you are “saved” and God did not give you a new heart which desires His commands, His presence, and His people, then God’s promise to replace your heart has failed. If He couldn’t even do that, why do you trust that He will be able to raise you from the dead?

New head coach emphasizing family theme By JEFF IRELAND email@example.com

The man largely responsible for supplying the Haywood High School football team with fresh talent the last three years is now in charge of Tomcat football. Ernie Jackson, who has been the Haywood Middle School coach the last three years and was the freshmen head coach last year, was named the head coach for Haywood High last week. He replaces Slade Calhoun, who left for Brighton High School after leading the program for two years. â€œOverall, I'm very humbled with this opportunity,â€? Jackson said. â€œI'm grateful that they
have trusted me with this sacred position.â€? Jackson led the middle school teams to a 23-6 record the last three seasons, including a region title and two finishes in the final four. He also led the freshman team to an appearance in the title game. Jackson was an assistant coach at Jackson Central Merry in 2007 before coming to Haywood. He served as an assistant under former Haywood coach Tim Seymour and Calhoun. Jackson said he is going to treat the program like a family. He said his wife, Ashley, and his three sons, ages two, seven and nine, will all be part of the football family.
â€œEverybody will be a part of this,â€? Jackson said. â€œI'm going to treat my guys just like I would my sons.â€? Jackson said he will focus on four main themes: family focus, value-centered, future-directed and community driven. â€œThat's my foundation,â€? he said. As far as what will happen on the field, Jackson didn't get into specifics as far as schemes and formations, but said, â€œMy guys are excited. We're going to go out and make athletic plays.â€? Practice for Tennessee schools begins July 8. â€œThat's when we'll start putting in schemes and packages,â€? Jackson said. â€œThe guys have been working hard.â€?
Newman hired to lead Tomcat baseball By JEFF IRELAND firstname.lastname@example.org Haywood High School has a new baseball coach. Tyler Newman, a former assistant at Ripley High School, was hired Tuesday to replace Chris Messer, who resigned earlier this month to take the head job at Dyersburg.
Newman hasn't had a chance to meet many of his returning players yet, but he's working on it. â€œTo be honest, I'm not real familiar with the guys coming back,â€? Newman said. â€œI've heard good things about them. Hopefully I'll get a chance to go to the last couple of summer games and get
to know some of the players.â€? Newman was an assistant under Terry Odle at Ripley the last two seasons. Odle said he was not surprised that Newman landed his first head coaching job. â€œI told him when he came to Ripley that we
Taylor nominated for Woman of the Year
Haywood graduate Leah Taylor, shown here playing for UT-Martin, was recently nominated for an NCAA Woman of the Year award. Photo courtesy UT-Martin Story courtesy UT-Martin Leah Taylor, a Haywood High School graduate and a recent graduate of UT-Martin, has been selected as the Ohio Valley Conferenceâ€™s nominee for the NCAA Woman of the Year award. The award will be announced at the Woman of the Year Awards Dinner in Indianapolis on Oct. 14. Each conference nominates up to two women and from that group the NCAA Committee on Women's Athletics narrows it down to the top 10 per division, which will be announced in August. In September, the CWA will select the top three per division. The NCAA Woman of the Year Award honors graduating studentathletes who have distinguished themselves throughout their collegiate careers in the areas of academic achievement, athletics excellence, service and leadership. Studentathletes are nominated only once in their career by their institution. Taylor, a marketing major with a 3.97 GPA, was recently named a CoSIDA Academic All-American,
marking the second year in a row she has been honored with that award. She has also been a multi-time selection to the OVC Commissioner's Honor Roll, as well as being an OVC Medal of Honor pick and being tabbed an NFCA AllAmerica Scholar-Athlete. She is a member of the UT Martin Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, the Beta Gamma Sigma honor society and Fellowship of Christian Athletes. She has volunteered with Habitat for Humanity and Hoops for Heroes as well as participating with numerous elementary school events. On the softball field, Taylor has been nothing short of remarkable. This past season, she became the UT Martin alltime career leader in runs scored (162), steals (110) and triples (18). She led the OVC in steals (39) and is tied for sixth in the nation in that category. Taylor will go down as the first player in OVC history to record over 25 career home runs and 100 stolen bases. The 2012 OVC Player of the Year, Taylor finished this season hitting .298 while posting a career-
high 10 home runs and driving in 30 runs on the season. She continued to leave her mark in the UTM single-game record books as well, hitting two home runs against Jacksonville State, tallying four hits against Middle Tennessee State and swiping four bases against Southern Illinois. Taylor will continue her work within the athletic department at UT-Martin as she pursues a Masterâ€™s in Business Administration. She will use what she has learned in the classroom as a graduate assistant with Skyhawk Marketing and Development. In the past five years, 676 student-athletes were nominated by their conference or independent institutions, representing multiple ethnicities and all NCAA-sponsored sports within Divisions I, II and III. In 2012 alone, 429 student-athletes were nominated by their institutions. From 1998 through 2005, an average of 410 female student-athletes per year were nominated for the award. Since the programâ€™s inception in 1991, 2,629 women have been recognized as state or conference honorees.
probably weren't going to work together long because he'd get a head coaching job,â€? Odle said. â€œHe'll do an outstanding job. He's ready. I look forward to watching him grow. I think he's a good fit at Haywood.â€? Newman was a pitcher and infielder at Chester County High School, grad-
uating in 2003. He then went to play at Dyersburg State Community College and Bethel University. He served as an assistant baseball coach at Jackson Central-Merry before moving on to Ripley. Haywood's baseball program has shown significant improvement the last two seasons.
Newman plans to keep the momentum going. â€œI want to build on the success that Messer had,â€? Newman said. â€œHe has the program heading in the right direction. I just want to keep building up to the point where we can be competitive at the highest levels.â€?

HHS tracksters hold own at nationals By JEFF IRELAND email@example.com Six members of the Haywood High School track and field team competed at the 2013 New Balance National Outdoor Championship in Greensboro, N.C., last weekend. And all six held their own and brought home some long-last memories. “I believe the athletes got to see what I’ve been preaching about for two years,” said Haywood coach David Claybrooks. “It’s kinda of funny in a way because I’m always trying to prepare them for anything, doesn’t matter if it’s a local, state or national meet. The athletes told me how they felt like they were track and field athletes for once.” On Friday, Haywood's boys 4x200 relay team of Willie Franklin, Justice Brown, Bryce Young and Jalen Elliott finished sixth in their heat with a time of 1:34.00, placing 20th overall. “Despite not running their fastest time of the season, the relay team was thankful for the opportunity to run against some of the best U.S. relay teams in the country,” Claybrooks said. Young, a sophomore, will be the only athlete coming back for the 2014 season. “I felt like it was a great experience and I know what I have to do to get back,” Young said. “I'm glad to be able to run with those guys and it was just a blessing to experience
From left, Justice Brown, Darvis Jarmon, Willie Franklin, Bryce Young, Jalen Ellison and Kadarren Bond competed at nationals last weekend in North Carolina. Photo courtesy HHS something like that.” On Saturday, senior Kaderran Bond was in the first flight of two in the shot put. His best throw was 14.55 meters (47-09 feet) on his first attempt. His second and third were 14.00 and 14.47, putting him in 22nd place overall. Bond finished the season as the school record holder in the shot put. On Sunday, senior Jalen Ellison, competing in his last competition as a Tomcat, did not disappoint in the Emerging Elite Long Jump. He opened his first attempt in flight 2 with a 6.71 meter (22-00.25 feet) jump. His next two attempts were not above his 22-00 mark. After flight 2 was completed, Ellison was sitting in sixth place with flight three getting ready
to compete. As flight three was going through their third and final attempts, two jumpers had already jumped better than Ellison, knocking him to the eighth and final spot for the long jump finals. The second to last jumper jumped a 6.90 meters (22-07.75), knocking Ellison out of the finals. Although Ellison did not make it to the finals, his ninth place finish is the highest finish by a Haywood track and field athlete at nationals. “That was gut wrenching to sit there the entire third flight, thinking your long jumper had a chance to make it to the finals and then boom, a jumper jumps a distance farther than your guy,” Claybrooks said. “I’m still proud of Jalen’s performance.” Claybrooks said the ex-
perience was one neither he nor his athletes will ever forget. “They were shocked how many small to large colleges/universities were there recruiting athletes,” Claybrooks said. “I’m sure these young gentlemen are going to bring back all of the great memories from this national trip and tell other Haywood Tomcats what they experienced was like and how athletes take their sports seriously.” "Nationals was something great to experience," Ellison said. "I wish I could go the nationals next year, but my time is up. I expect future HHS teams to make the finals because they have great coaches. If they listen, great things will happen ... It was a blessing to see nationals and ride with my brothers in the end of the season."

By Denise Phillips Fatherâ€™s Day, Brother Bobby Russ delivered another fabulous sermon at Zion Baptist Church using Joshua as his central focus to illustrate â€œA Father with Honor.â€? He used several Scriptures to prove that Joshua was a man of decision, a man of devotion, and a man of determination. He followed by saying the best thing you can give your kids is to lead them to God. I hope all fathers had a happy, happy day and will do just that! Zion also gained a new father since Kevin and Elizabeth Lovelace had their precious little girl. Her name is Adelaide and the family is home and doing well. Congratulations! Zionâ€™s senior adults enjoyed a trip to Backyard BBQ where they always have a wonderful time. Alan and Marie Outlaw were unable to make it due to tests at the doctor
and Regina Thomas left Franklin to baby sit, but the ten that attended had a great time as usual! Thanks to the faithful group of men that meet each Thursday morning at 6:00 at ZBC. All men are invited to come and join them in praying! I am not sure if I received a report this week or not since my Face Book account was hacked and I lost all messages. I didnâ€™t want to bother Brother Butch again, but will have a report next week. Mark your calendars for Summer Sunday Nights at Zion! â€œSharing Jesus without Fearâ€? study led by Michael Johnson will continue June 23, 30, and July 14, 21, and 28 at 5:00 P.M. Community Outreach June 23; and Movie Night June 30. During July, family night takes place on the 7th, Zion Sings (14th), Community Outreach (21st), and Movie Night (28th).

Continue praying for sick folks and their families, military personnel and families, shut-ins, those mourning loss, and the leaders of our country. Hopefully, by the time you read this Gwen Ivyâ€™s knee replacement will be complete. I hope all goes well and she will be on the road to recovery. For those who are praying for our son, Jason, he will return to the doctor Wednesday and I will have a report. Last report, more antibiotics. Call me at 772-4257 or email me at phillipsd6@ k12tn.net if you have news. People want to know!
UT Ex Extxtetension History of the Bradford Pear By Walter Battle Now everyone that has taken our officeâ€™s Master Gardener Class in the past or attended our Landscape Design workshop this past spring was taught about various yard trees. As always, this question always arises, â€œWalter should I plant Bradford Pear trees to get a quick maturity look into my new landscape?â€? My response is that they are prone to breakage from wind and ice. It should be noted that plant breeders are producing stronger cultivars of the specie and there are pruning techniques that help against the breaking. In the April 2013 edition of the University of Tennesseeâ€™s â€œForestry, Wildlife, and Fisheries Update Newsletter,
Specialist, Larry Tankersley, shared some documented information about the tree from Theresa M. Culley and Nicole A. Hardiman titled The Beginning of a New Invasive Plant: A History of the Ornamental Callery Pear in the United States, (BioScience Dec. 2007, Vol. 57 No. 11) What we know as Bradford Pear derived from Callery Pear (Pyrus calleryana) rootstock, an ornamental tree from China that is commonly planted in residential and commercial areas. Although, Callery Pear is mainly grown ornamental use, during the period of 1916-1918 it was brought to the US to breed fire blight resistance in common pear (Pyrus communis). It should be noted that in 1919 seed was
collected that would eventually become the â€œBradfordâ€? cultivar. In Glenn Dale, Maryland the ornamental potential of the species was first recognized. In 1952, the ornamental possibilities of one particularly vigorous, thorn less tree were recognized, and cuttings of it were grafted onto Callery Pear seedlings and planted in a nearby treeless residential subdivision for testing as an ornamental street tree. After eight years of success the cultivar was given the name â€œBradfordâ€? in honor of a horticulturist at the Experiment Station. In 1962 the tree was available commercially, and eventually became one of the most widely planted boulevard trees in urban areas in the U.S.

Our Dads at Sugar Creek were made to feel so special and loved on Fatherâ€™s Day. Each had some of their kids and grandkids visiting them.

She has been at Crestview for a few weeks and is ready to get back to her Sugar Creek Family. Thank you so much Crestview for taking such great care of her. June is National Dairy Month. We had a great Tuesday afternoon thanking the cow for all the dairy products it provides for us. Jessie and Jennifer had a wonderfully decorated table of various dairy products for our residents to sample. They had this cute little cow sitting on a stool singing Donâ€™t Worry Be Happy. I spoke to the residents on the nutritional value of
each of the items and how milk and dairy products work to keep our bodies strong and healthy. Residents and staff all seemed to enjoy themselves. Make sure to check in on your family members that canâ€™t get out and about alone. The temperature is heating up and they may need some help keeping the air conditioning at the right temperature. If you are going out of town on vacation or for work and need a place for your family member to stay, let us help out.

Correspondents The Brownsville States-Graphic
By Martha H. Jones and women and their families worshiped with us Sunday to be with their fathers and grandfathers. Happy Birthday to Elaine Brown, Haley Emison, Victoria Young, Chris Castro, Craig Long, Joshua Mangrum and Nicole and Nicholas Davis. Happy anniversary to Danny and Linda Murphy and Paul and Melinda Manchester. Our dear friend, Jan Wynn, went home to be with the Lord last week. Her funeral was held at Holly Grove Church. We express our deepest sympathy to her husband Andy, daughters Sharon, Katie and Mandy and to her grandchildren and all the family. Jan will surely be missed. The preschool and children VBS was held last week with an enrollment of 111. The commencement was held on Friday night, followed by refreshments and carnival games in the family life center and outside in the parking lot. Thanks to all who helped to make it a success.
The golden wheat fields are being cut out Poplar Corner Rd. The queen Ann’s lace, the orange lilies and sumac are decorating the roadside along the way. I imagine Glenn and Vondia White are getting ready to move into their beautiful new home at Holly Grove. Our vegetable garden is really growing, but a shower would help. What do you think about our President getting ready to take a vacation trip with his family to Africa that will cost taxpayers 100 million dollars? We are already in debt over our heads, what’s a few more million, right? Those on the sick list needing our prayers are Fletcher Lewis, Betty Barden, Mary Ann Ballard, Carolyn Covington and Virginia Taylor. Others are Anna Garrison, Melanie Jones, Butch Wilson, Bobby Perry and Justin Climer. The youth and their leaders will soon be leaving for a mission trip to Cherokee Indian Reservation in Oklahoma. We need to pray for them.
Hillville - Eurekaton News By Vicki Williams “Reading scripture revives the soul.” This is our Thought for the Week as published by Marla Quevedo of California in the Upper Room Devotional. We can be nourished by the stories and promises of God found in His Holy Word. The promises require our commitment so that God’s work can be fulfilled in each and every one of us.

Melba Mitchell was the guest speaker. Those in attendance were Peggy Lewis, Deborah Lewis, Marcia Watson, Barbara Hayes, Sue Goodman and I.

Butch, performed at the Delta Heritage Center. Barbara Hayes, Ray Williams, Sharon Broughton, Phillip and Aleta Bradford, Sue Goodman, Danny and Marcia Watson and Travis and I were in attendance.

The weather was nice and we had a great time. Those who went were Randy and Sue Goodman, Alex and Kaleb Goodman, Phillip and Aleta Bradford, Keaton and Weston Benard, JamesChilcutt and his daughter Ashlee and Travis, Krystle and I.

Holly Grove News “Rise up O Men of God” was a most appropriate message on Father’s Day. Society is attempting to undermine the father’s role in the home today, and many have gone AWOL. Mistakenly, some husbands and fathers have the idea to show their masculinity, they must be domineering, the boss, some have just never grown up and are irresponsible. A young man is not looking for a girl friend or sex partner but a wife. He is not ready to be married until he can leave his mother’s home and his father’s pocketbook. Fathers are to be leaders in the home. After the sin, God didn’t say, “Eve, where are you?” He said, “Adam where are you?” God had talked to Adam earlier, and when Eve was being tempted by Satan, Adam didn’t speak up or stand up. Men, where are you today as husbands and fathers?? Mike Coburn sang “I Want to be Just like You” for special music. God, I want to be like you, for my son wants to be like me. Many young men
to our men. A great morning enjoyed by all. We will be taking our residents on their monthly lunch June 25. The residents choose the restaurant they would like to eat at and this month their choice was Burger Basket. They always enjoy these outings. Thought for the week: Did you know? Bees can’t see the color red, birds can. So birds, not bees, pollinate red flowers.
By Marty Williams Father’s Day was a thrilling and inspirational day for so many daddies! Brand new Fathers, Tildon Haynes, husband of Sarah, and daddy to Sophie, and Branon Fergie, daddy to Barrett, husband of Grace, were blissfully, overjoyed with being a daddy last weekend!! Those are two proud new papas! Brother Ralph Brown and Elaine’s grandson, Kyle McClinton, who grew up in Haywood County and graduated from Haywood High School in 2006, was notified recently that he passed the CPA exam to be a Certified Public Accountant! He lives in Miami, Florida and works for BDO Accounting. His parents are Jerry and Kathy McClinton. Mary Jane Williams and Pat Harwell just returned from a Mediterranean cruise in Europe! They flew to Rome and stayed a couple of days before the cruise began. They sailed to Florence, Italy; Monte Carlo, Monaco; Marseille, France; Barcelona, Spain; and Lisbon, Portugal. While in Barcelona, they had lunch with Pat Simmons Moore, who actually lives there! Now that was an adventure! Suzanne Tipton, daughter of Nancy Helen Thornton and the late David Tipton, is teaching in Nakhon Si Thammarat, Thailand. During the Teachers Day
ceremony last week, Suzanne was chosen by the students to receive the first ‘My Beloved Teacher’ award! Wow! That is so awesome! Congratulations Suzanne! Dr. Sue McElrath became immersed in her ‘chauffer’ roll again for a girls’ trip to Little Rock, AR. They were having a fascinating time! She says the retirement life looks tempting and she may need to look into it early, in order to join them on some more trips! Caitlin Garrett, daughter of Sherry Collins and Johnny Garrett, has finally set her wedding date! It is May 3, 2014. She just got that gorgeous ‘rock’ and now she is busy, busy with all her wedding plans! Blair Simpson has been preening, primping and fluffing in preparation to entertain at the Miss Tennessee Pageant with her friends! Now that will be a super thrill! She is also enthusiastic about starting UT Martin soon! Go Blair! Chris West had a fantastic Father’s Day weekend trying to teach his daughter how to drive a tractor! Paul Lott got squired around Saturday for his belated birthday gift! He was whisked off to Outback then zipped over to the Century Farm Winery in Jackson, to hear the Blues Berry Jam Band play. What an
entertaining evening! Happy belated birthday Paul! Hooray for Bret Stoots on receiving his master’s degree in accounting from Rhodes College, this May! His parents, brothers and family are delighted that he will be living and working at Horne Accounting Firm in Memphis. It was such an honor to be able to enjoy Father’s Day with him and him getting to see his many friends and precious nephews while home. Hooper, Harrison and Whitt Stoots thinks he is the greatest uncle ever and that he hung the moon! A thank-you goes out to the community for the support and encouragement they have given. On an extremely sad note-The whole community wishes to extend their deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Jan Wynn. Jan passed away last Friday and will be tremendously missed by so many. Her daughter Sharon, who is a missionary, flew home to be with her daddy Andy and her mama. ‘It is well with her soul.’ Newly married, Haley Vanstory Denlinger and her husband Craig have 30 more days of work and then they are off to their new home in Savannah, GA. Kathy and Steve (BoBo) are elated for them! Let me hear from you! Aroundtownmarty@ aol.com or 780-4111.
Allen News By Sandi Bishop Sorry for the mixup about last week‘s column. Somehow my e-mail to the newspaper got lost in “cyberspace” – so having to “double up” this week. Bro. Phil’s message on 6/9 was from 1 Samuel 15:21 encouraging us about obedience, submission and faithfulness to the Lord. Jan Outlaw sang our special music “I’ve Never Been This Homesick Before” and “Well Done, Well Done”. Thanks so much, Jan, for blessing our hearts. Sunday we had two very special baby dedications Zander Young and Kamryn Green. Adam Buckingham did the dedication for Zander - and sang two very meaningful songs. Then Bro. Phil did the dedication for Kamryn. We had many folks from both families - thank you for coming - and you’re always welcome at Allen. And thanks to Harriett for allowing Greg Campbell, Tim Caldwell, Sonny and I to bring special music as well. It was wonderful to see Nita Waldon back in church last Sunday – she had eye surgery several weeks ago. Welcome back - we‘ve missed your sweet spirit and beautiful smile. Ivan Parker’s concert at Allen was great he sang many of our favorites - and his youngest son, Josh, played the guitar and
was fantastic. We were so fortunate to have Ivan at Allen - it just so happens that Mike Rodgers, Hal and Martha Rodgers‘son, is Ivan’s “right hand man” and arranged for this concert. We had visitors from all around West Tennessee and want to thank everyone for coming out. And thanks so much to the Rodgers family for putting this together. When Carolyn Lovelace (affectionately known as “GranGran”), heard about Ivan coming, she was so excited - said she enjoys his music so much and that “he’s easy on the eyeballs, too”! Here’s my next installment about the great singing at the Barnett’s Homecoming. The Joylanders were, as always, just what it says in their name - a “joy”. Thanks so much to Nell, Perry, Jason, Vanessa, Jay and Ally. What a talented family - it’s such a blessing to see the kids following in their parent’s andgrandparents footsteps serving the Lord. We enjoyed having Stan Flowers’ niece, Stephanie Lopez, and her husband, Jaime, visit with us recently - please come again soon. Our youth are having a car wash to make money for the mission trip to Oklahoma. Please come by on Saturday, June 22 from 10:00 - 2:00 - out by the Justice Center and
get your car or truck cleaned inside and out - you know you want to get all that yellow/ green pollen “stuff” off your vehicle. And it’s for a very good cause - a donation for the youth/ adult mission trip. On Sunday, June 23 from 2:00 - 4:00, Vonda and Glenn White are having an “open house” at their new home at 6696 Poplar Corner Rd. - right across the road from the old “home place”. Please come and see their beautiful new home - but Vondia said to tell everyone “no gifts please”. Happy birthday to Betty Dedmon, Katie Dedmon, Cory Jackson, Ronnie Allen, Bobby Hooper, Greg Rodgers, Carolyn Hicks and Madison Campbell. Happy Anniversary to Doug and Brenda Kendrick and Lisa and Willie Jones. Please add these folks to your prayer list - Larry Overton, Martha Pyron, Vicki Hooper, Sheila Strickland, Mark Buffington, J.L. Campbell, Billy Warf, Ernest and Ann Lytle, Geraldine Williams, James Tate, Leslie and Ginger Warren, and David and Mary Debell. And please pray for our youth/adult group who will be going to Oklahoma on a mission trip soon. And finally - be thankful for your friends - remember – “friendship isn’t a big thing – it’s a million little things”.

Guinn goes “Oﬀ the Beaten Path” for nature photos
Pictured left: “Great White Egret” is just one of over 30 photos, by Photographer Joe B. Guinn, available for viewing during the exhibition Off the Beaten Path: Scenes of West Tennessee now through September 7 at the Delta Heritage Center in Brownsville. Guinn’s work features nature scenes from Tennessee to the Mississippi rivers and points in between. Pictured right: Joe B. Guinn is a native West Tennessean who’s love for birds and nature began at a young age. His photographs are on exhibit at the West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center in Brownsville through September 7. Photos submitted Photographer Joe B. Guinn knows he has to get “oﬀ the beaten path” for the best nature shots. A new exhibit at the Delta Heritage Center, Brownsville, oﬀers a look at his work featuring scenes of West Tennessee. The exhibition Oﬀ the Beaten Path: Scenes of West Tennessee can be seen daily now through September 7. A special artist reception will be held Thursday, June 27, at 6 p.m. Birds and nature caught Guinn’s eye at an early age. Once
he got a camera in hand, this Tennessee native began to focus on his natural surroundings. “My favorite photographic challenges are landscapes,” says Guinn. College and a career took him away from the area. When he returned in the 1970s, he discovered his beloved Hatchie River forest and wetlands had dramatically changed. And “not for the better,” according to Guinn. This prompted him to begin
the project of photographing what remains of the Hatchie’s fragile untouched wetlands and deep forest areas. Oﬀ the Beaten Path depicts life in the wetlands and river valleys that include the Hatchie, Reelfoot Lake and Tennessee and Mississippi rivers. Guinn captures this beauty using only natural light and his photos are untouched, except for an occasional cropping. “Guinn is able to capture the heart of the river valley,”
says Sonia OutlawClark, director of the Delta Heritage Center. “Through his photos, we are able to get a glimpse of life most would never be able to see.” There are also permanent photos on exhibit in the Hatchie River Museum at the Center, according to Clark. His work has been featured by the Tennessee Ornithological Society, Audubon Society, Nature Conservancy and Environmental Action Fund. Guinn was
awarded a Wildlife Conservation Award by Haywood County in 1996. His most extensive exhibit has been in Nashville at Cheekwood M u s e u m . The exhibit is free and open to the public Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Sundays from 1-5 p.m. The public is also invited to meet the artist at a special reception Thursday, June 27, from 6-8 p.m. To learn more about the artist visit www. joebguinn.com The West
Tennessee Delta Heritage Center is a tourist information center and home to three regional museums depicting the history and culture of the West Tennessee people. Inside visitors will ﬁnd the Cotton Museum, West Tennessee Music Museum, Hatchie River Museum, the Sleepy John Estes Home and Flagg Grove School, the childhood school of Tina Turner. To learn more about the Center, visit www. westtnheritage.com or call 731-779-9000.
Tennessee Historical Commission announces June meeting The Tennessee Historical Commission announced today its regular meeting of the Commission members is scheduled for Friday, June 21, at Paris Landing State Park in Buchanan. Beginning at 9 a.m., the meeting will be held at the park’s inn in Conference Room A, located at 400 Lodge Road. Open to the public, the meeting is one of three yearly gatherings of the Tennessee Historical Commission held in each of state’s
Grand Divisions. The Commission last met at Paris Landing State Park in 1998. “We encourage members of the public to attend the meeting, as it is a great opportunity to learn more about the exciting work of our oﬃce and the important historical programs we administer, including the Tennessee Wars Commission and state-owned historic sites,” said Patrick McIntyre, executive
director of the Tennessee Historical C o m m i s s i o n . On Thursday, June 20, Commission members will visit historic sites in Paris, which feature many signiﬁcant properties, including the c. 1893 Robert E. Lee School. The school has received several federal historic preservation grants from the Commission through the years, and the agency’s support played a critical role in the property’s restoration for use
as an arts academy. As the State Historic Preservation Oﬃce, one of the main objectives of the Tennessee Historical Commission is to encourage and facilitate the protection of the state’s diverse historic places for the beneﬁt of future generations. The Commission is responsible for overseeing a variety of state and federal programs, including administering the National Register of
Historic Places, placing historic markers, and providing technical assistance and training to local historic preservation commissions through the Certiﬁed Local Government Program. The Tennessee H i s t o r i c a l Commission consists of 29 members. The Governor appoints 24 Commission members, and ﬁve serve as ex-oﬃcio members. The exoﬃcio members include the state
historian, the state archaeologist, the Commissioner of Environment and Conservation, and the state librarian and archivist. The 24 appointed members are equally divided among the three grand divisions of the state. The Commission meets three times a year. For more information about the Tennessee Historical Commission, please call (615) 5321550 or visit their website at www.tn.gov/ environment/hist/.

Conserve Haywood County: Farmers, Homeowners can help pollinators prosper
More than threefourths of the world’s ﬂowering plants rely on the help of pollinators to reproduce. One out of three bites of food can be attributed to these important creatures – such as bees, butterﬂies, moths, birds, beetles, bats, and a few other small mammals. But as you may know, pollinators are in trouble. Many are
seeing decreasing populations because of habitat loss, disease, parasites and pesticide use. Pollinators provide crucial assistance to fruit, vegetable and seed crops as well as other plants that produce ﬁber, medicine and fuel. For many plants, without the help of pollinators, they would be unable
to reproduce. The honeybee and its pollinator allies are responsible for pollinating billions of dollars’ worth of American crops each year. Pollinators visit ﬂowers in search of food (nectar or pollen). During the visit, a pollinator may inadvertently brush against a ﬂower’s reproductive parts,
depositing pollen from a different ﬂower. This fertilized ﬂower may then produce fruit or seeds. While many pollinators are in trouble, you can help. It can be as easy as selecting high-quality pollinator plants for your garden. To ﬁnd the best plants for your area, visit the websites of NRCS partners at the Xerces Society Pollinator C o n s e r v a t i o n Program or Pollinator Partnership. If you operate a farm or ranch, USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service can help you create habitat for pollinators. This not only beneﬁts pollinators, but also provides ample perks for the farmers and ranchers, too. More pollinators – native and managed – can increase crop yields. Native pollinators are free, and planting wildﬂowers in and around ﬁelds and choosing the right cover crops can increase their numbers. NRCS offers more than three-dozen
conservation practices that assist in building healthier landscapes for pollinators. Habitats used by pollinators also attract beneﬁcial insects (insects that eat crop pests), and they may provide habitat for other wildlife, reduce soil erosion, and improve water quality. As you can see, pollinators and healthy habitat for pollinators help keep the ecosystem healthy. In fact, if you are putting in conservation practices to prevent soil erosion or protect stream banks, consider including wildﬂowers, shrubs and trees that support pollinators. Learn more about how farmers and ranchers are doing their part to aid pollinators: www.nrcs.usda.gov/ pollinators. Did you know: 1. A world without pollinators would be a world without apples, blueberries, coffee, chocolate, almonds, peaches or melons, pumpkins. 2. Pollinators include bees, butterﬂies, moths, birds, bats and beetles.
3. North America is home to more than 4,000 species of native bees. 4. Hummingbirds are the most common avian pollinators in the U.S.; these tiny wonders prefer tubular ﬂowers in bright, warm colors. 5.

Cracks can cause hazards in trees Inspection from industry certified arborists can prevent severe property damage “Homeowners worried about trees falling and damaging property should call a professional arborist in for an inspection,” advises Tchukki Andersen, BCMA, CTSP* and staff arborist with the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA). Andersen notes that trees are genetically designed to withstand storms, but all trees can fail and defective trees fail sooner than healthy trees. “To a professional arborist,” notes Andersen, “defects are detectable signs that a tree has an increased potential to fail.” Tree cracks can be one of the major warning signs of an unstable tree. Most cracks are caused by improper closure of wounds or by the splitting of
weak branch unions. They can be found in branches, stems or roots, and vary in type and severity: Horizontal cracks run across the grain of the wood and develop just before the trees fail, making them very difﬁcult to detect. Vertical cracks run with the wood grain along the vertical length of the tree and may appear as shear or ribbed cracks. Shear cracks can run completely through the stem and separate it into two halves. As the tree bends and sways in the wind, one half of the stem slides over the other, elongating the crack. Eventually the enlarging crack causes the two halves of the stem to shear apart. Ribbed cracks are created as the tree
attempts to seal over a wound. Margins of the crack meet and mesh but are reopened due to tree movement or extremely cold temperatures. Thicker annual rings are created in order to stabilize the developing crack at the location of the wound. This forms the ribbed appearance over a period of many years. These cracks put a tree at high risk of failure, and are especially dangerous when combined with other defects or with advanced decay. A professional arborist can determine the potential for failure by measuring the shell thickness in a few locations around the tree’s circumference, determining the width of the crack opening, and looking for the
presence of any other type of defect. What is the risk? Cracks are hazardous because they compromise the structure of the tree. They can eventually split the stem in two, and are very dangerous when combined with internal decay. The presence of multiple cracks and decay indicates a potentially hazardous tree. Find a professional A professional arborist can assess your landscape and work with you to determine the best trees to plant. Contact the Tree Care Industry Association, a public and professional resource on trees and arboriculture since 1938.

How to Protect your family’s skin from Summer’s Scrapes, Bites and Burns
Afternoons at the pool, family barbecues, outdoor sports and picnics all mean summertime has arrived. With the change in temperature comes additional exposure to the elements and the attendant skin scrapes, bites and burns. Pharmacy shelves are lined with products to treat these common summer ailments. But with more Americans concerned about using harsh chemicals on their bodies, families are frequently turning to natural alternatives that are just as effective. To help your family “go natural” in your skin remedies, follow these tips throughout
your fun-ﬁlled summer. Bugs Rather than spraying your yard with products that contain potentially harmful chemicals like DEET and PABA, consider citronella candles. The fragrance should not only keep bugs at bay, but the soft glow sets a pleasant mood for your al fresco meals and parties. Of course, you can also prevent being bugged all together by avoiding the outdoors during dusk, when mosquitos come out in full force. But when the outdoors calls, try applying a natural insect repellent. For example, JĀSÖN brand Quit Bugging Me! Insect
Repellent Spray, is comprised of the active ingredients soybean oil and germanium oil, and is safe to apply on children (with adult supervision). If you do get bitten, don’t scratch. That can promote infection. Instead, apply a cold compress to the bite. It’s a tried and true inexpensive path to itch relief. Sunburn If your yard lacks shade, improve your eco-footprint and create shade by planting a tree or two. You may not be able to reap the shady beneﬁts this year, but you’ll thank yourself in the future. You may also consider building a gazebo or porch overhang for more immediate relief from the sun. Wear a hat and sunglasses outdoors and apply a sunscreen with broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. Spend too long in the sun? Treat yourself to nature’s burn relief, Aloe Vera. Look for a gel that is free of parabens and artiﬁcial colors
and phthalates. For example, JĀSÖN brand Soothing Aloe Vera Gel soothes dry, irritated, sun damaged or newly shaven skin, while a boost of nourishing Allantoin and Vitamin B5 helps to replenish and recondition. Scrapes Bike rides, baseball, basketball and trips to the playground all present an opportunity for slips and falls. On such adventures, be sure to carry a small ﬁrst aid kit so you can clean and cover minor injuries right away. A natural antibacterial alternative, JĀSÖN brand Pure Tea Tree Oil, delivers skin relief and is available at natural food stores such as Whole Foods Market. Pack cotton swabs and bandages in a variety of shapes and sizes to be best prepared. More information about protecting your skin naturally can be found at www.JasonPersonalCare.com. This summer, take a cue from nature to ward off seasonal skin woes.
