A moment with Mr. Fincher Congressman comes to Brownsville

By Calvin Carter Staff Writer

W

ith the recent trips U.S. Rep. Stephen Fincher has taken to Brownsville, maybe it’s about time he move from Frog Jump to the city. Fincher was already present during TVA’s dedication ceremony for the Lagoon Creek Combined Cycle Plant, inquiring on the mechanics and environmental impact of the facility with such a strong interest. Earlier this week however, Fincher ditched the hard hat for a brief sit down session at the Brownsville Haywood County Chamber of Commerce. Fincher took the opportunity to not only field questions from residents that attended, but also provide a picture of what’s going on in Washington.

While the picture may not have been particularity pretty, one could get the sense that it was at least honest. The congressman’s issuedriven talk of service cutbacks and problems with partisan driven agendas seemed to pull little political punches. “Shortly after the [election] I was asked ‘how do I like it?’” Fincher said on being a congressman. “That’s probably not the best way to put it. We just have so much to do. We can’t seem to get one thing fixed without ten other things breaking.” Fincher noted that while everyone seems to be on the same page as far as cuts on federal spending, there is conflict on exactly what needs to get cut. Fincher brought up the government’s attempt to cut Agriculture budget, something that as a farmer is red button subject to Fincher.

“Everybody is for some cuts, but not on the back of a few people,” he said. Fincher talked about his move from the House Agriculture Committee to serving instead for Financial Services. Although not an easy move for the congressman, he does believe the move could still best serve the farming community. “I don’t want it to look like that we’re not doing everything we can,” Fincher said. But before we can be able to farm, we need the banking to do it.” Fincher also expressed his opinion of the government interfering too much with local community governments, inferring that local needs or desires are almost lost in Washington. “Washington has too much power, and Brownsville doesn’t have enough,” he said. “I think See Fincher Page 3

Relay rescheduled for July 22

By Calvin Carter Staff Writer

“I understand that this year is going to be one of the biggest we’ve ever had,” Judge J.R. Reid said about Relay For Life during the annual Survivor’s Luncheon. Reid may still echo the thoughts of many residents concerning Relay For Life’s success. Unfortunately, having it not disrupted by rain may have shifted the planned date. Relay was supposed to run last Friday, June 17, celebrating its 15th year in Haywood County. Instead, thanks to more stormy weather, the annual event has been rescheduled for July 22. Yet, despite the date change, the Survivor’s Luncheon indicated that Relay can still expect a large crowd. This year’s luncheon moved to a larger location at the Brownsville Baptist Church, indicating that perhaps this fight against cancer isn’t hopeless. “That is a wonderful thing because that shows that we have more survivors out living,” Relay For Life Chair-

The Haywood County High School Show Choir finishes up a performance during the Relay For Life Survivors Luncheon Photo By Calvin Carter Survivorship Anne Banks said as she surveyed the large crowd. Given the amount of money raised by Haywood County for Relay, the large number of survivors and support probably makes sense. With plans to raise $100,000 for this year, the event has managed to raise a total of $857,314 since its debut. This year’s luncheon featured the stories of Honorary Co-Chair Audrey Blue and John Simmons.

Blue and Simmons recalled their battle against cancer, and what it took personally for them to overcome it. “I was scared,” Blue said, remembering her battle against breast cancer. “Self-pity said ‘why me?’ But self-sense said ‘why not?’” “Most of all, people have to surround you,” Simmons said later, offering advice on what it took to survive. “You have got to have support.” While the relay date

is set for next month, it’s imperative to survivors that the momentum not be lost, especially to the luncheon’s guest speaker NAACP State Conference President Gloria Sweet-Love, who noted that cancer does not discriminate against race, religion or class. “It simply does not discriminate. We must work to get everyone in the community involved. Let us be known as the community that simply would not quit,” she said.

The Brownsville Police Department (BPD) spent last week dealing with drug and alcohol related crimes. Wednesday, June 15, officers responded to Gay Street for a possible aggravated assault. Sgt. Mitchell Turner and Cpl. Anthony Rankin stopped a subject, matching a description they were given, running on Gay Street. He was identified as 23-year-old, Marcus Coleman, of 12 Jack Brummett Road. Officers recovered, 27 grams of Marijuana on Coleman, which is a felony. He has been charged with possession of a schedule VI controlled substance with intent to resale and possession of drug Paraphernalia.

In other news, the BPD conducted alcohol compliance checks on June 3rd of all 15 establishments in the city that provide the sale of alcohol, including convenience stores and restaurants. Of the 15 checks, only two failed to comply and were charged with the sale of alcohol to an underage person and failing to check for identification. The two locations were Discount Tobacco and More on North Washington Avenue and Wings and Things on Anderson Avenue. The clerks will appear before the Brownsville City court and the owners of the establishments will appear before the City of Brownsville Beer Board.

Photo By Calvin Carter By Calvin Carter Staff Writer AT&T announced the expansion of its mobile broadband network in Brownsville, Stanton and parts of Haywood County, extending access for advanced mobile services and devices. “That means a lot of folks who didn’t have internet service, they now have the ability to get it if they want it,” Trey Rabon AT&T Tennessee Regional Director, said. This could be a real game changer for some people. They could look for jobs, education or research on the internet.” Some view this as help with state economic development. ”This mobile broadband expansion will keep our residents connected and assist with our economic development efforts,” Sen. Dolores Gresham said. “This is good news for area residents who depend on their wireless devices for conducting business, gathering information and staying connected with family and friends,” Speaker Emeritus Jimmy Naifeh said. “Families and businesses in Brownsville and Stanton alike will certainly benefit from communication infrastructure investments like this.” In addition to the news of 3G expansions, Rabon also noted that with planned T-Mobile merger, AT&T may upgrade its services to 4G. With 4G, information could travel at 48 megabits per second. “Demand for wireless bandwidth is growing rapidly, and we want to meet that demand for our customers,” Rabon said. “We’re excited to expand mobile broadband in

Brownsville and Stanton. Our recently announced agreement to acquire T-Mobile USA also represents a major commitment to strengthen and expand our network. In fact this deal, if approved, means that we’ll be able to expand the next generation of mobile broadband – 4G LTE – from our current plan of 80 percent of the U.S. population to more than 97 percent.” AT&T’s mobile broadband network is based on the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) family of technologies that includes GSM and UMTS, the most widely used wireless network platforms in the world. AT&T provides access to voice service in more than 220 countries and data service in more than 200 countries. It also offers voice and data roaming See AT&T Page 3

from her family and friends were heard by God and He spared her life and I agree, I think she is a living miracle. Her grandma taught her to cook Italian food the old fashioned way. She is now writing a cookbook and family history so the same recipes her Nonnie taught her will be passed along to her children and grandchildren. She is a vibrant, special lady and these recipes are a delight! So let the adventure begin, dear readers. Happy cooking!

Martha Jean Gay’s Home Hosts Tenth Review Club

By Marty Williams Twelve members of our Review Club showed up at Martha Jean’s gorgeous home for our annual book swap! By the time we got all our books on the table, it was jam packed! Oh! I love book swaps! President, Jane Simmons, thanked Martha Jean for the use of her home. Our other Jane (Hopkins) read an excerpt out of ‘Magnolia Chair’ while Martha Jean did the devotion called a Spring Prayer. Then Jane Simmons gave us a choice of business first or eating first!! Now… just what do you think we did??? Eat first! We had lots of little snacker- things along with … Gail Carver’s strawberry cake! Oh my gosh! While eating, we chitchatted like our tongues were on fire! Food does that to us! We had so much to review! It was time to put our heads together about our club fundraiser, which we needed for two scholarships this year. Our fundraiser is a little unorthodox, but we are crazy about it! We figure out how much we need, and then we all write a check for our part! We call Peggy Haynes our ‘Fundraiser Diva!’ she came up

with the idea and we find it irresistible! Checkbooks were pulled out as our more math-orientated members did the figuring and dividing. It’s the ultimate in fundraisers in which you will ever participate! Go, Peggy, go! We deliberated about what we wanted to do for our Year-End party, but couldn’t come up with a ‘sure thing’. Jane Simmons mentioned driving to Franklin for some kind of painting fun, but the final word hasn’t come down yet about that. We may have another alternative right here in Brownsville that I’m going to suggest, but we will have to see what kind of response my email gets. Could be fun! We’ll see! We had to choose new officers for this coming year. Of course, that is always such a hoot! I always try to give my secretary job of writing these articles away, but nobody will take it! Then we have to persuade one of our members to be president by telling them it’s easy and finding another member to be vicepresident and telling her it’s easy! By the time we get done with all the persuasion

and cheerleading, we finally have ourselves a new slate of officers for the new term! The New Term’s Officers are: President: Martha Jean Gay Vice President: Torre Kelly Treasurer-Kathy Ward Correspondence Secretary- Marty Williams

Notice, we only have a partial ‘Martha’ cabinet this coming year! After all the voting and threatening was over, everyone got out their calendars to mark the date of one of our favorite eventsTater Nite! We all idolize Tater Nite! Peggy Haynes, (Fundraiser Diva) always has that at her house! It will be September 15 at 6:30 p.m.

Court Traffic Jam

By Gail Barden

Father’s Day was a special day for us. Thirty years ago on June 19, 1981, our youngest son, William Tyler Barden, was born to us. I have not been able to top that Father’s Day gift! He is a blessing, and we are so thankful for him. Although fathers were especially honored on Father’s Day, I hope that everyone appreciates and honors their fathers on a daily basis. I thank God for my wonderful daddy and all of the sweet memories that I have of him. I am so thankful for W.A., Jason and Andrew and the great fathers that they are to my children and grandchildren. Allen youth are in Florida at Youth camp this week. Thanks to everyone who supported their efforts to help with funding the trip. The car wash at E.W. James

was a huge success, and we thank the community and church for their help. Our family had a great trip to Orange Beach last week. Claire’s first beach experience was a good one. We enjoyed ourselves and had a wonderful time together. W.A. was in the ER right before our trip with 11 kidney stones. He is much better now, but the first part of our trip was pretty painful for him. I am so thankful that he is better. Happy Birthday to Tyler Barden, Alicia Russell, Jennifer Bowers, Gene Laster, Betty Dedmon, Katie Dedmon, Martha Crutcher, Cory Jackson, Ronnie Allen, Bobby Hooper, Greg Rodgers and Carolyn Hicks. Happy Anniversary to Doug and Brenda Kendrick. I am sending a special

thanks to Susan and Butch Wilson and Gayle and Geraldine Williams for your kind words of support. We extend our sincere sympathy to the family of Libby Kendrick. Please remember them in your prayers. On our prayer list are Maclaren Coulston, Bill Duke, Vicky Fawcett, Jerry Baggett, Martha Crutcher, Carolyn Danley, Liz Evans and Steve White. Our Bible verse for this week is Exodus 20:12, which states, “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you.” If you have news or prayer requests, please contact me at gailbarden@gmail.com. Have a great week.

Traffic came to a momentary halt last Wednesday, June 15 on the court square area. A semi-truck had trouble driving past some of the construction machinery. Semi-trucks are not suppose to drive through the area, and the city has set up detour signs to prevent this. No one was injured and no damage to the truck or equipment was found.

Fincher Continued you guys can do a better job than we can here.” To conclude his time, Fincher took questions concerning the nation’s direction on infrastructure, international policies, healthcare, and small businesses. Fincher also gave his take on a subject that’s been on minds of many residents for quite some

time. “Congressman, what’s going to happen with social security?” asked Brownsville Haywood County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Joe Ing. “Nothing will change,” Fincher answered. “But there are some things we do need to look at.” While many who attended may have

appreciated his lay it all on the table, approach, Fincher may have hoped that those who attended left with one clear message. “I’m up here representing the eighth congressional district,” he said. “I’m going to do what’s best for Washington, I’m going to do what’s best for home.”

AT&T Continued coverage on more than 135 major cruise ships, as well as mobile broadband services in more than 130 countries. AT&T also operates a significant Wi-Fi network with approximately 24,000 hotspots in the U.S. and provides access to more than 135,000 hotspots globally through roaming agreements. “We are fortunate to

have leaders in the state legislature like Senator Dolores Gresham and Speaker Emeritus Jimmy Naifeh who understand that our state technology policy has contributed to a business environment that attracts investment and infrastructure upgrades,” Brownsville Haywood County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Joe

Ing said. The good news didn’t end with talk of 3G expansion or 4G. Rabon also offered a check from AT&T to Haywood County Mayor Franklin Smith and Brownsville Mayor Jo Matherne for $1,000. The money will go towards the STEP dollar scholarship from the REDI program.

There’s just too much going on over here, I’m having trouble staying focused! Construction on the awnings outside the three town buildings is close to being finished. The new sidewalk was poured last Friday. The Cannery will remain closed until the new equipment arrives and has been installed. Because of all this construction, our Farmers Market is running late too! There is one night out of each month we have three meetings in a row, so our State Planner can be here with us. The Board of Zoning Appeals meets at 5 p.m., Historic Planning/Preservation Commission meets at 6 p.m., and the regular Stanton Planning Commission meets at 7 p.m. normally at Town Hall. However, last week on this particular night, all three meetings were moved to the library due to all the construction. Several people were in attendance at the meetings (sometimes we forget how small this place is.). The last meeting of the Stanton Planning Commission was abruptly brought to a halt by a power outage due to an intense and surprising storm. Now, keep in mind we have emergency exit lighting which has always worked, but of course didn’t work when we really needed them! Initial examination indicated the batteries were bad, but after having them checked the next day, it was not the batteries at all. Something inside the lights (forgot what it was called – ok I’m not an electrician) had gone out. Mighty strange all three of them went out at the same time! Power outages and surges over here really cause us a lot of problems and suspect this may be the reason for the failure of our emergency lights. Luckily, this time we didn’t lose any computers! We had recently upgraded to stronger surge protectors, and I’m sure glad because I didn’t get a chance to turn them off before the storm hit. Needless to say, everyone lit up their cell phones, but the weather was so bad the meeting was called off. I’m not sure when it will be rescheduled. Never a dull moment in Stanton! If you don’t believe me, come over and hang out with us for a while! We’re over our heads in cemeteries over here and working on some pretty big projects, too many in fact, I ended up with a migraine last week and slept it off over the weekend. OK, I realize I’m babbling so I’ll end this column. I’m sure there is some news, but for the life of me can’t seem to pull it out of my brain today. I don’t want to leave out Vicky Fawcett, her surgery

went well and she is home recovering! Residents and former residents of Stanton, you may mail Stanton news to me at P.O. Box 181, Stanton, TN 38069, reach me at the Stanton Welcome Center/Library at 731-548-2564 (please leave

a message), or e-mail me at: Stantonwelcomecenter@ gmail.com. Please put “Stanton News” in the subject line. Together we will look at the past, look toward the future and report current events.

Peeples

Off the Beaten Path

By 28th Judicial District Circuit Court Judge Clayburn Peeples

Illegal Aliens

It’s time to put political correctness aside, folks. We’ve simply got to do something about all these illegal aliens. Otherwise, they’re going to take over our whole country. Now all you liberals calm down; I’m not talking about Mexican farm workers, or the Chinese women who sneak into the country to have their babies so they can claim citizenship and benefits at some time in the future. No, I’m not talking about people at all; I’m referring to plants, fish, insects and exotic diseases that are wreaking havoc in our forests, farmlands, lakes and even our yards, at dangerously increasing rates. Native to other parts of the world, they have made their ways to our shores, either by well-intentioned but misguided individuals or by accident, but either way, they are causing enormous and ever increasing damage to our ecosystems and our economy. Here in Tennessee, when we think of invasive alien plants, our thoughts usually first turn to kudzu and well it should. It’s not for nothing that it is known as “the vine that ate the South.” From Japan, when it was first introduced to America (at the Centennial Exposition of 1876) it was a sensation. Every visitor who saw it wanted to take some of it home, and unfortunately, many of them did. Then, during the early part of the 20th Century, the USDA began encouraging farmers in the South to plant kudzu to hold off erosion, and the rest as they say, is history. But kudzu isn’t the only foreigner to take root on our native soil. There are plenty of other “imported” invasive plants here in the state as well. Honeysuckle, both the vining and bush varieties, both originally from Asia

cause major problems wherever they grow, and as everyone knows, they grow just about everywhere. They have become a major problem for foresters and farmers because of their invasive, rampant growth and their ability to smother out nearly every other plant in the vicinity. Mimosa trees, native to China, so sweet smelling and exotic looking in our yards, long ago escaped and became invasive and almost impossible to eradicate in all sorts of places, especially along stream banks and roadsides. Privet hedges are fine as fences along our boundary lines, but these imports also Asian, form dense thickets in the wild where they are increasingly found and they destroy nearly all competing native species. And their leathery leaves contain chemicals that make them resistant to insects, herbivores and pesticide control. Spirea is another Asian native used for ornamental purposes that has escaped into the wild and is smothering out native flora at an increasing rate every year. But not all plant invaders are from Asia. English ivy is native to Europe and was brought to America by early settlers. It is now a major problem in many of our woodland areas where it displaces native understory species and covers and slowly kills trees. Purple loosestrife, another European import, is a perennial flower that originally hitchhiked to America in ship ballasts. Still offered by nurseries in some places for its ornamental value, its sale is banned in many states because of its propensity to spread and take over sensitive wetlands. And do you know about cogongrass? It’s not much of a problem in Tennessee

yet, but it is an aggressive destroyer of virtually every other type of vegetation everywhere it grows. It grows so thickly ground birds can’t even nest in it. Not only that, but it is highly flammable. A major problem in Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia, it is headed north. Then, there are the insect invaders. We’ve just about gotten control of the boll weevil problem in the South, but that one Mexican immigrant nearly destroyed our cotton industry before we did. Boll weevils from Mexico, fire ants from South America, chestnut blight (a fungus from Asia) which destroyed every chestnut tree in the country, European starlings, English sparrows, Asian tiger mosquitoes, nutria (originally from South America, they were introduced into the United States as the next “mink”), Asiatic clams, Formosan termites (actually from mainland China), zebra mussels from Russia, the list goes on and on and on. Usually the reason these foreign invaders thrive here is because we don’t have the complex array of natural controls here, such as insects and diseases that exist in their native habitat. Thus, they have an enormous survival advantage over native species. And the problem is getting much, much worse on nearly all fronts. The global community in which we now live, our importing nearly everything we buy and our policy of pretty much letting anyone who wants to come here into the country, make it nearly impossible to keep foreign plants, bacteria, animals and diseases out. But we’d better come up with a comprehensive defense, while there’s still time to do so, otherwise, our physical environment will suffer the same fate our culture has.

with Jerry Wilson Surprised by the least expected One thing I’ve learned over the years is to constantly be on guard from boredom in the work force. Very few things can break a person quicker than losing interest at work or being overcome by the weight of boredom. I hear a number of people say today, I don’t like my job, or I’m only working because of the benefits. When asked about the specifics of the job, they usually say the challenge is not there. Other responders say it’s the same ole same ole, and the monotony that weighs the body down. I’ve always preferred a work place where things were not so predictable. The element of surprise can sometimes make for very challenging and fun moments. Take the pastoral ministry, for example. While there are so many assignments that are filled with stress and tragedy, there are also soft unpredictable moments that seemed to cut the ice somewhat. While serving at an appointment in Memphis some years back, I was going over the events of the day. A wedding and two funerals were already listed among the activities

Mike Chase is a tough guy who has had a spectacularly successful career in the restaurant industry. He’s been a fixture in Tennessee business and politics for two decades and his 17-restaurant Copper Cellar Corp. stretches from Gatlinburg to Nashville. He is a Democrat whose support is courted by both major parties and friends occasionally kid him about a passing resemblance to Tony Soprano. Those who know him best, however, say he’s happiest when he’s fishing. That’s probably why he lights up when he talks about his six years on the Tennessee Wildlife

other pastors were not familiar with the song. I knew that it had been released by George Jones about four years prior to this story. It talks about a man who had married his only love. The marriage ended in divorce and he never remarried. He loved her with all his heart until his death. It was stated that the man whose funeral was being conducted, fit the storyline in the song to the letter. The mystery of one final song had to be identified. What do we do with the song, “Yellow Rose of Texas?” Since it was placed with the name of the minister who would be conducting the wedding later on in the week, I gave him a call. Knowing the bridegroom, the minister said, “Heck, he possibly wants it to be used as a replacement for the Wedding March so the new bride can come strutting down the isle in her Calamity Jane outfit.” By the way, when checking our information for verification, we were correct on all accounts. Each of the services went off without a hitch, and all the parties involved were very pleased and satisfied.

of the week. Families are given the option to recommend hymns or special songs for either of these occasions. Sometimes a family member might ask for some time to get back with us later. That was true on this occasion. This was before emails and messengers were used to drop off the information at the church. This information was dropped off after hours and given to the church custodian who forwarded it to me. The information had been placed in envelopes marked with the name of the ministers conducting the particular services. Simple enough, right! Not quite. The next day, we learned that information had been placed in the wrong envelopes. For instance, the minister performing the wedding had never heard the story of the “Virtuous Woman” in Proverbs read during a wedding. We all agreed that it had to be one of the funerals. Of the funerals to be conducted, one was male and one was female. Obviously, this one had been solved. There was also a request for the song, “He stopped loving her today.” The

Resources Commission, which oversees the operations of the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency. Chase was appointed by former Gov. Phil Bredesen and served as chair in 2010 and until his term was up earlier this year. He is an enthusiastic booster of the agency’s mission. “I don’t think most people know that the agency doesn’t get any money from the state. It is totally selffunded through hunting and fishing license sales. One of the things I would like to see is a portion of the sales of all boating, fishing and hunting licenses go to fund the agency,” Chase said. “The sale of hunting licenses has been on the decline for years. “I don’t think the average person realizes what a wildlife officer has to deal with on a daily basis,” he said, mentioning a wildlife officer who worked a 20hour shift dealing with a woman who had two fingers ripped off in a water skiing accident and a bear that was sighted and trapped in South Knoxville. “And I wonder if the average person realizes that the management job the agency does has made hunting what it is today in the state of Tennessee. Twenty years ago, we probably had wild turkeys in six or eight counties. Now, they’re all over the place. Something like 3638,000 of them are harvested every year. The same thing can be said for deer, and the same has taken place in our lakes and reservoirs and rivers for fishing. Look at the trout below Norris Dam or in the Caney Fork River. Somebody has to raise and stock these trout. If you’re a hunter or a fisherman, you’ve sure got to give credit to somebody.” Chase is modest about his role in shaping policy, but says he’s proud of prodding the agency to spend money on hatcheries. “Since I have such an

interest in fishing, I wanted to get our hatcheries to where we could start meeting the needs of fishermen out there as far as producing fish. Most of our lakes are past their prime as far as fishing goes, and it’s necessary to restock them. Under Gov. Bredesen, there was a strong emphasis on state parks and tourism, and this is part of it. Our lakes need to be attractive to out-of-staters who come to fish. It’s an important part of our economy and economic development for the future. I felt it was very important.” Chase said politics never played a part in the board’s decisions but sometimes were imposed from the outside. He is, for example, adamantly opposed to Rep. Frank Niceley’s deer farming bill, which was defeated this session. “In listening to the people I knew whom I have to respect, it would have been a very bad thing for wildlife in the state of Tennessee. Sometimes I think some of the legislators resent the independence of the commission – but that’s the reason the commission was set up – to keep it separate from the political in Nashville. “The agency has to be constantly monitoring what’s going on and try not to let these private acts pass. There would be different rules in every county. There would be no statewide enforcement, especially for the last two years because there’s been such a change in Nashville. Even a few bills, which have been withdrawn, to allow the Legislature to appoint commissioners and even put legislators on the commission, I personally think would be the death of the commission. The existing format has been working with great success and they need to leave it alone. Leave the commission alone. Leave the agency alone.

Family Gardening

By Walter Battle

It is with great fondness that I recall growing up as a member of a truck patch farming operation. The lessons I learned from the field when paired with those from the “Good Book” set the foundation for the way I live my life today. I find it funny that the Creator established the family in the Garden. Many people today feel that as we (as a society) get further removed from the farm life; society as a whole has gotten worse. A colleague of mine, Shelly Barnes, a Family & Consumer Science Extension Agent in Lebanon, compiled some information on family gardening from a University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension publication titled “Every Child Belongs in a Garden”. (It was featured in the June edition of “Family Ties,” a University of Tennessee Extension FCS newsletter) Every child should have the opportunity to have some type of experience in a garden. Learning where our food comes from is a valuable life skill for our children as they grow older. Many times when

you ask a child where a certain type of food comes from, their response involves a long story of a trip to a grocery store or a supermarket. The valuable experiences produced during these hands-on situations are priceless in this day and age with more families living in urban areas with little space for traditional activities such as gardening. Parents, grandparents, child care providers and others working with children can utilize gardens for learning tools as well as a fun way to get everyone involved. There are many teachable moments that come from the garden, including insect identification, discussions about healthy eating and even dramatic play. Activities abound that are centered around gardening and are not limited to the time of year. Indoor gardening can take place at any time indoors, but outdoor gardening should be taken advantage of to give children a chance to play outside as well as learn about nature. Listed below are some examples of activities that families can utilize for fun in the garden this summer. After all, more than a seed is

planted in a garden. Capture a sense of fun and design. Plant a Pizza Garden, grown in the shape of a wheel with each wedge planted with a pizza ingredient: peppers, tomatoes, onions, garlic. Don’t forget the “cheese” (marigolds) and “crust” (either plant wheat or oats or just use hay or straw as mulch to represent it). Water them as well as the plants. Gardening should be fun and on hot days there is nothing better than getting wet. Figure out what ground rules you feel comfortable with, but in general don’t worry about getting clothing wet. Become a scientist! Exercise your curiosity and engage the kids. Try a few experiments in the garden. Make tending fun. Make a list together of the things that need to be done to help take care of the garden. You can make a pack of index cards with the tasks on them, then simply “pick a card” to get tasks assigned. Keep taking turns until the tasks are done. Munch, crunch, cook and eat! Foster good nutrition by harvesting and trying out the foods you grow together in the garden. You’ll encourage children to eat more fruits and vegetables. Celebrate! Create a family or neighborhood gathering to have your children show off their accomplishments and share their produce. Include some cooking, eating and fun activities that they can share with others.

ville - Eurekaton News Sugar By By Vicki Williams Vicki Williams “God never gives up on anyone.” This is our Thought for the Week as published in the Upper Room Devotional by Ann Sloane of Australia. No matter how far we may stray from the Lord, God always reaches out to offer support and love while guiding us back to him. Today, as parents, a lot of us can share some of the agony of the father of the prodigal son since a lot of our beloved children are distant from the Lord. The Scripture encourages us to “pray continually”. This is a large part of keeping a faithful lookout for the spiritual return of those prodigals in our families. We long to welcome them back to Christian family just as God welcomes every one of us. As a child, my mother took me to Harmony Baptist Church each Sunday morning and Sunday night. Back then she took me to GA’s once a week at the church and each summer we were there for VBS, but as I grew older, I chose not to go to church and for the most part of my adult life I did not attend church on a

regular basis. But thankfully someone must have been praying continually for me, because I am back in church at Mt. Pleasant UMC and have been for several years now. I thank my mother for taking the time to take me to church when I was younger because it truly made a difference in my life as an adult. I would like to remind everyone that the benefit for Jimmy Swain, husband of Nancy Elrod Swain, will be held on Saturday, June 25. The benefit will be held at Mt. Olive Baptist Church on Jernigan Drive in Somerville. This event will begin at 3 p.m. There will be a spaghetti supper, cakewalk, auction and live entertainment. David Smith, The Singing Fireman will be singing at 7 p.m. If you would like more information, directions, or would like to make a donation of food, an item for the auction or monetary donation, you can give me a call at 772-1885. Happy birthday to Jordan Cates, Virginia Williams, Russ Stoots, David

Thanks to Bro. Bob Connerley from Brownsville Baptist Church for bringing our Sunday devotion this past Sunday. We have several of his members out here and they’re always glad to see him. Last Sunday, we had the Westside Church of Christ singers, as well as Bro. Lonnie Robinson bringing the message. David Smith came and did a concert on Monday. We learned some trivia on Tuesday morning and had a Bible study with Patricia Simmons in the afternoon. Had a real treat Wednesday when Brinda Boyd, the owner/ designer of Heavenly Jewelry and Accessories, came over from Jackson and displayed her line of jewelry to our residents. It was certainly beautiful and she sold several pieces. After every one admired this new line, we had a wonderful watermelon party. Jewelry and watermelon – who can ask for anything more? You all must put two dates on your calendars if you want to hear some great music. The first is June 28,

another heart cath to make sure the stints were working correctly. They were, and hopefully we are both on the mend from that! Brother Grover Westover stopped by the hospital Thursday afternoon to visit Jimmy and filled us in on the prayer breakfast. When he arrived, Allen Outlaw had grabbed doughnuts for the twelve men that attended, and he led the devotion. Brother Mark was in Memphis with Brother Ronnie Gruenwald, a personal friend and pastor of Gallaway Baptist Church. Thanks to all of the men for your faithfulness! Anyone interested in joining this group, come Thursday morning at six to Zion’s family life center. Thanks to Norma and Jessie for coming to Jackson Thursday evening to drive Jimmy and me home. This was a first for us with neither of us being able to drive. She stayed and helped prepare dinner and clean up afterwards. We enjoyed a visit from Jimmy’s sister Linda Pittman Friday, as well as Jessie and Norma following up after Jessie’s doctor appointment. He will be having foot surgery soon

where a large portion of it will be removed, so please remember him in your prayers daily. We enjoyed spending Saturday afternoon at the park in Brownsville helping Lyla Rainey celebrate her fourth birthday. We had to bring the party back to our house to finish due to illnesses, but we still had a wonderful day! Congratulations to Scottie and Betty Morris on their 47th wedding anniversary. They spent their special day on a train ride with a dinner and mystery celebration in Kentucky. One of their granddaughters, Morgan Reeves, taught Betty’s SS class for her and another granddaughter Sara Littlejohn who usually helps out, was away on an awarded school trip. Don’t forget June 26 we will observe the Lord’s Supper at Zion Baptist Church. Pray for those who are sick, our military personnel and their families, the shutins and elderly, those who have lost loved ones and the leaders of our country. Call me at 772-4257 if you have news. People want to know!

Students Named to Honor Roll and Dean’s List at Bethel University The following students achieved the Honor Roll at Bethel University for Spring Semester 2011: Lauren Perry and Sabrina Saveh, both of Brownsville. To qualify for the Honor Roll, a traditional student must have completed 12 or more hours simultaneously of academic work with an average of 3.70 or above with

no grade below a “C.” Samuel Pyron of Brownsville achieved the Dean’s List at Bethel University for Spring Semester 2011. To qualify for the Dean’s List, a traditional student must have completed twelve or more academic hours simultaneously with an average of 3.50 to 3.69 with no grade below a ”C.”

when the US Navy Band will be here playing patriotic songs to help celebrate the birthday of our country. The second date you need to put down is July 14, when Mary Alice White, the renowned pianist from Jackson, will be here to do a concert and sing-along for us. If you have never heard Mary Alice you are missing a huge treat. She will be here on that Thursday at 10:30 a.m. Save the date – you won’t regret it – I “guarantee” it! Bring a friend, and come join us. Dr. Spencer was supposed to come do a program for us this week, but we had to postpone it due to something he had to do of great importance. He left for Houston, Tex. today to compete in seven events in the Senior Olympics. Sounds pretty important and impressive to me. Good luck, Doctor. Had a big Father’s Day when all the men got banana splits, while the women only got a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The ladies had gotten roses for Mother’s Day, so had to

do something special for the men for Father’s Day. Knew they wouldn’t care a flying flip for flowers (how about that alliteration) so went straight to the way to their hearts – through their stomachs. They loved it! Brownsville Baptist Church’s folks came Saturday and went up and down the hall singing for our residents, what fun. The residents do complain sometimes because I don’t usually have a planned activity on the weekend. I feel that is the time their family and friends come to see them and we surely don’t want anything to interfere with that. The residents whose family and friends don’t come on the weekends do end up feeling kind of bored and left out. So it makes it nice when we do have something planned (or so they tell me). Happy belated birthday to my dear sweet friend, June Walker. She had a birthday the 20th. I want her to stay my friend so I won’t tell which one. Come see us and rock awhile.

ByBy Denise Phillips Denise Phillips Happy “belated” Father’s Day to all you dads out there that I did not get a chance to tell. Thanks to a wonderful father, Brother Mark Conway, for teaching my Jr. High Class again among his many other roles at Zion Baptist Church. I am still recuperating following my neck surgery. The older we get, the longer it takes to heal. Father’s Day at our house was spread out with our kids. Our son Jason grilled the meal for us before heading out to his son Mason’s ballgames in a tournament in Jackson. Mason was very disappointed that he didn’t get to see his Rainey cousins while here. Of course Lyla was upset in not getting to spend time with Cousin Lillie. Jimmy had to take Jason to the dentist in Memphis Tuesday for oral surgery. He has been in pain with that wisdom tooth for awhile, but is on the mend now. Wednesday was doctor appointments for Jimmy and me, but we were not planning another night in the hospital. However, his cardiologist decided to do

By Betty Scott If you ever want it to rain, just plan a Relay-For-Life event.   Someone should have kept records of how many times the Relay has been rained out.  It has been rescheduled for July 22, which is the hottest part of summer.   Darrell Climer celebrated his birthday last Saturday with family at Emily’s in Ripley.   Around 22 helped Darrell celebrate turning 75. Happy birthday, Darrell! Also, Laura Kendrick celebrated her 19th birthday last Friday night with friends and family.   I hope that if your father was still living, you spent the day last Sunday with him.   The world is never the same when your mother or father is gone.   My daughter, Dana, had a gathering at her home, and everyone enjoyed hamburgers and hot dogs and a day of

swimming.   Zion United Methodist Church will be having their homecoming on July 17 starting at 11 a.m.  more information later, but mark your calendar.   Don’t forget Sunday, June 26, Bethel Community Church will host Walter Plant, from Texas.   Walter is definitely an entertainer that plays three keyboards and is blind.   He performs in the summer months in West Tennessee, so we had to book him early last year.   We are looking for a good crowd.  Bro. Paul will have preaching at 11 a.m., a potluck meal at noon and Walter will start at 1 p.m. Emily Herron has completed her medical assistant studies at West TN Business College and is doing her externship at Brownsville Medical Clinic.  She made a 99 on her final exam and completed the course with a final grade of 100.   Congratulations,

Emily!   We were all saddened by the death of our loved one, Libby Harmon Kendrick.   Yet, our spirits rejoice to know that she has no pain, nor sickness. Libby had retired from Dept of Human Services in August, 2010 and was diagnosed with cancer in November.   She had a brief, but tough battle and will surely be missed by everyone.   She is in great company with all those whom we all love and miss. Funeral services were held last Sunday at Tabernacle Methodist Church. Please keep Jay, Elizabeth and Laura in your prayers. Thought for the week:   “Some people come into our lives and quickly go.   Some stay for a while and leave footprints on our heart and we are never, ever the same.”

Crestview News Thank you to all the volunteers who came out this past week- Christ Temple ladies, First Holiness women, St. John’s Baptist church, First Assembly of God Church ladies, Oakview Baptist Church, Faith Deliverance ladies, Mrs. Ann Nuckolls, Community Temple of the Living Church ladies, Mrs. Mary Barkens, Mrs. Juanita Austin, St. James Church of God in Christ- Thomas Street, Macedonia Baptist Church. On Tuesday, June 14, several of our patients went on a lunch outing to Veranda. Each one chose the buffet and they all loved it. Everyone was so nice to us and helpful there. Thanks to all the staff for their caring

and thoughtful ways. Everything was delicious. On Saturday, June 11, we took a few of our patients to Oneal’s Lake for a fishing trip. They enjoyed this also. On this particular Saturday, they were having a free fishing rodeo presented by Jackson Center for Independent Living. They had grilled hamburgers and hotdogs with all the trimmings and soft drinks. We really didn’t catch anything, but it was a fun time for all of us. Our Fathers Day breakfast on Friday, June 17, was a great success. Most of our men were up early, getting ready for a delicious breakfast in their honor. We had scrambled eggs, homemade biscuits and

gravy, bacon and sausage. They loved it! Rev. C.N. Ricks was here helping them to celebrate this important event. He lead in prayer. We would like to thank Jimmy, manager at Cuz’s Smokehouse N Grill and staff for the delicious meal they prepared for all our men. It was wonderful! Thank you also to Latoya Flagg for singing two beautiful songs, also thank you to Beanna Brooks, Patricia Brooks, Raven Campbell and Jessica Brooks for assisting the men to the meal and socializing with them. Thank you everyone for your help! Thought for the Week: “A cheerful look brings joy to the heart.” – Proverbs 15:30

Need a friend? Stop in at our animal shelter! Oh! A surprise birthday party for Angie Smother ’s sister, Alicia, was held Saturday, June 11, at the Brownsville Country Club! Family, friends from all over and co-workers from Jackson-Madison County General Hospital and West Tennessee Surgery Center, gathered to surprise her! Music was provided by Hannah Company and Andy Cooper was the DJ. They had been planning this for a number of months and she never found out! (That’s what I call ‘good sneaking’!). Her niece, Alaina, was responsible for getting her to the party under the premise that they were going to a surprise party for one of her friends! They had a ball! They continued celebrating in Destin the following week for vacation! Now, that’s what I call a birthday party! Happy Birthday, Alicia! Whoa! Drew Baggett is playing in the TGA Junior Golf Tour this summer! He has played in two tournaments so far, one in Dyersburg, where he scored 85 and one in Brownsville where he scored 92! He plays at The Farms in Dyersburg on Tuesday next week and then in Covington on Thursday. When one of my daughters used to babysit for Drew, we affectionately called him ‘Baby Drew’ because he was so adorable! He is growing up into a fine athlete. Go Drew, go! A fantastic bit of news! Donna Matthis Nace just got married, June 18! She married Rodney Hopper from Bells. They had an outdoor wedding at Connie and Anthony’s lovely home out on Windrow Road. James (Teddy) Waldrop officiated the wedding since he is a County Commissioner and a close friend. Rodney’s two boys were the groomsmen, Donna’s daughter, Brilee, Rodney’s daughter and Shelby Baggett were bridesmaids. Donna’s son, Braden, walked her down the aisle and gave her away. The bride and groom said it was a joyous and beautiful ceremony. Congratulations, Donna and Rodney! You deserve this amazing bliss so very much! It makes my heart smile! I got a lovely tidbit from my neighbor, Christy

Tate Smith, the other day! Randle Smith Bell and husband, Michael, are expecting their first child in October! Randle, who is a facilitator manager at Tennessee Tech in Cookeville, and her husband are so thrilled! Grandmama Christy and Granddaddy Fox are beside themselves with absolute delight! They are so proud! Randle and Michael are painting the baby’s room gender neutral colors because they do not want to know if it’s a boy or girl when they get the ultrasound done next month! I would go absolutely crazy if I could know and chose NOT to know! Oh my gosh! Congratulations, Randle and Michael, on this incredible occasion! I can still remember Randle getting out of my car at 5 years old and telling me she couldn’t carry all her items because she was ‘full-handed’. It tickled me to death! Look at her now! Amazing! Christy’s daughter-inlaw, Amber Smith, had a fun-filled art camp for children (6yrs.-teens) this month! I wish I was a child again so I could attend! She also teaches private art classes for anyone who is interested in learning. Isn’t that awesome? I also found out something else she does that I might get my Review Club to try! She puts on an art party. It takes two hours and you bring your food and beverage, while Amber talks you through painting a picture that is the theme for the evening. She can do it at her cozy art studio behind her house or come to you! Doesn’t that sound incredible? Mmmmmm… I have to check into that! Another little item from another neighbor, Sandra Silverstein! Sandra’s daughter, Alyson Robinson, and granddaughter, Abby Robinson, from Memphis, went to Chicago last week on the Amtrak to celebrate Abby’s 8 th birthday. They had an incredible visit at the American Girl Doll Store, eating brunch, birthday cake and shopping for Abby and her American Doll, Kate, (we are still housing at least four of the American Girl dolls, a nightie and a sweatshirt at my house!). My girls loved them! They also visited the Navy Pier, the Sears Tower, the Chicago Institute of Art, the world

famous Shedd Aquarium and saw a fabulous Broadway production of Peter Pan!! Oh how fabulous! Of course, they ate lots of remarkable Chicago pizza and did a little shopping. They left Chicago Sunday evening and returned to Memphis early Monday morning, tired little travelers! Abby also attended Amber Smith’s Art Camp. She took two art classes, Arts and Crafts and Decoupage, from Miss Amber and had such a spectacular time! Abby also had fun swimming with Emily Russell and Eliza Ford at Ann and Patrick Mann’s pool. She loves coming to Brownsville every summer. On a sad note… we are asked to be thinking and praying about the family of Libby Harmon, who passed away. She fought a courageous battle, but God needed her more. We are so sorry, and you all will be on our minds during this particularly tough time. Sonia Outlaw-Clark, director of West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center, said for everyone to get prepared for the next performance on the porch, June 25, at 7 p.m. Josh and Steven Stewart of Brownsville are members of Jupiter Stone and Hannah Company are all Brownsville people along with Andy Cooper, Hannah Baynes and Amy & Joe Mallette. It’s a free rock, rhythm and blues concert on the porch! What more could you ask for? Remember, Hannah Company made their debut at Cinco de Mayo! Our new States-Graphic General Manager, Vicky Fawcett, got to come home from her hospital stay and is she happy to be ‘out’! We are elated to have her home! She is doing terrific! I don’t know about y’all, but we had a great Father ’s Day! I actually had my husband dig out our gas grill and I grilled for him for his special day! We won’t go into almost catching the deck on fire, but…. he still loved it! If anyone else has some adorable Father ’s Day stories, send them to me! Keep that scoop coming! I can’t do it by myself! You all are doing such a good job keeping me typing! Aroundtownmarty@aol. com or 780-4111.

Holly Grove News Grove News By Martha H. Jones By Martha H. Jones

“Attitudes Toward the Law” was the subject of the message Sunday, taken from Matthew 5th Chapter. In the Old Testament, there are ritual laws and moral laws. Jesus set aside the ritual laws, concerning offering sacrifices and the such. He was the fulfillment of those laws, and we are not required to keep them. But the moral laws, such as the Ten Commandments, are just as relevant today as back then, and God will hold us accountable when we disobey them. The Pharisees had made it impossible to keep the law with their interpretation. Thank the Lord, we are under His grace and not the ritual laws, Makayla Hopper made a profession of her faith when the invitation was given and was welcomed to the church. We were saddened Sunday when Tim Fain, our music director, resigned. He has been called to a church as a Youth Director. We wish him and Christy and their 3 yearold son the very best. In the beginning of the service Sunday, little 5 month-old John Davidson Hopkins was dedicated to the Lord. Brother Fred Campbell gave the charge to the family. John’s parents are Heath and Julie Jones Hopkins. His grandparents Alan and Debbie Jones and his greatgrandparents Dewey and Martha Jones were there for the service. Other family members there were John’s sister Hayden, Lorie Jones, and Jennifer Stephens. Following church services, the Joneses and Hopkins enjoyed a meal together at a Brownsville restaurant. Happy birthday to Elaine Brown, Hayley Emison, Victoria Young, Chris Castro, Craig Long, Nicolas and Nichole Davis and Joshua Mangrum. Happy

anniversary to Danny and Linda Murphy. The VBS at Holly Grove Church was quite a success it seems, with an enrollment of 94 and with 9 children making professions of faith in Christ. A Commencement and family night service was held on Friday night. Those on the sick list this week are: Dewey Jones, who spent some time in a Memphis hospital last week, but is doing very well. He is scheduled for a stress test this week. Thanks to Brother Grover Westover for supplying and doing the radio message Sunday for Dewey. He always does a great job. Others to include in prayer are Glenn White, Bob

Alexander, Ruth Taylor, Steve Sullivan, Doug Harvey and Fletcher Lewis. Also include Viola Brown, Betty Barden, Ann Latham, Roy Lewis, Rex Bond, Ray and Janie Hight, Carolyn Covington and Jeff Grammer. Bob Bond came by and visited with us on Saturday. We are always glad to see Bob. He is like family to us. Carolyn Watridge attended the wedding of her grandson, Bradley Maddox, to Mallory Hayslip at a plantation home in Nashville recently. We express our heartfelt sympathy to the Harmon and Kendrick families in the death of Libby Harmon Kendrick.

HHS softball keeps going through the summer Morgan Marlar outruns the throw to first to snag a base hit.

Courtney Lester hits the deck as Alyssa Campbell prepares to make the throw to first. By: Samuel McCarver Sports Writer The Haywood High School softball team played on Monday against Crockett County in a two hour, free-play style game. In this format, substitutions are allowed throughout in order for everyone to receive play time, and there is no formal score kept. Under a merciless sun that was interrupted only by intermittent cloud cover, the two teams exchanged pitch for pitch and hit for hit. And although both teams were trying to win a game that was, for all intents and purposes, impossible to win, everyone involved appeared to be having quite the time. Laughter and cheers could be heard from both dugouts and out on the field, as well. There was, however, a small moment of tension on the field during the game at one point. Freshman to be, Alyssa Campbell, pulled in a catch from the outfield as a runner was advancing toward her on third base. As she swept her glove

to tag the runner, Alyssa accidentally caught her in the face. One fresh symphony of chin-music later, the Crockett runner was flat on her back in a state of disarray. Thankfully, she was able to quickly gather herself and proceed off the field uninjured. Once the game was finished, both teams dispersed and the atmosphere around the field calmed down. This was the final game that the Tomcats would play before a two week dead period begins at the start of next week. Practice

is strictly prohibited by the Tennessee Secondary Schools Athletics Association (TSSAA) during that time, but once the period has ended, the team may continue practice under their new head coach, Holly Pipkin. Both Coach Pipkin and Assistant Coach Amanda Britt have good feelings as they transition into next year’s season. From the outside looking in, it would appear that this team will work quite hard until that time, and will stop at nothing to improve from last year’s record.
