Photo By Jennifer Willis BY JENNIFER WILLIS The Mayor and Board of Aldermen met Tuesday, November 13 for a regularly scheduled monthly meeting. Mayor Jo Matherne called the meeting to order, and asked Alderman John Simmons to give the invocation. Before leading in prayer, he took a moment to thank all of the veterans and

asked that any veterans present stand and be recognized for their service to our country. The Board then reviewed an application to solicit money or ask for donations by the West Tennessee Chapter of Freaks of Nature. The group will be holding their annual Toy Drive that benefits the Carl Perkins Center on December 8 from 10:00 a.m. until noon on East and West Main. The application

was approved. The Board also reviewed a parade permit request by the Haywood County Rescue Squad for the 2012 Christmas Parade. The request was approved, and the parade will be held December 1 at 6 p.m. Next, the Board reviewed a list of refunds, which totaled $4,398.17, that was to be made to homeowners for overpayment of taxes. The refunds were approved. Aldermen reports came next, and began with Alderman Leon King from Ward One. Alderman King asked about the possibility of remodeling the old building located at the corner of Tibbs Road and McLemore Avenue. He also thanked Mayor Matherne for attending his wardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neighborhood watch meeting, and relayed concern from a business owner about parking around Court Square. Vice Mayor Flagg of Ward Two thanked Mayor Matherne, Dr. Sonya Shipley and BPD Corporal Randy Taylor for taking part in her wards neighborhood watch meeting. She also welcomed

Brownsville welcomes its first professional photography studio

Samantha Brown Photography

Samantha Brown Photography is located at 1142 North Washington. Photos by Samantha Brown BY JENNIFER WILLIS The City of Brownsville welcomed a new business, Samantha Brown Photography, to town on November 9, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the first of its kind. Brownsville has never had a professional photography studio, and residents seem to be very excited. The owner, Samantha Brown, was delivered by Dr. Jack Pettigrew at Haywood Park Community Hospital in 1985. She completed kindergarten in Haywood County, but moved to Dyersburg with her family when she was six-years-old. Brown graduated

from Dyersburg High School in 2003, and went on to receive her CNA license from the Bells Training Center in 2004. She worked for Dyer Nursing Home, and then accepted a position with Oakwood Community Living Center until 2008. Brown then worked for CareAll as an in-home caretaker until 2010 when she decided the best place for her to be was at home with her children. Brown said she always had a camera in her hand as a child, but really didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t develop her love for photography until her first child, Abby, was born. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My husband bought me a Canon Rebel that used film after Abby was born, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

where it all began,â&#x20AC;? said Brown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those were â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;funâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; days because you took all of your pictures, and then you had to drop off the film and wait for it to come back so you could see what you captured.â&#x20AC;? Brown has since upgraded to a digital Canon Rebel, which is her instrument of choice at her new studio, which is located at 1142 North Washington. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Opening the studio just kind of fell into place,â&#x20AC;? said Brown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We drove by that building a hundred times, and my husband just kept insisting that I call. I finally did, and everything just fell into place after that.â&#x20AC;? Samantha Brown Photography officially

Off the Beaten Path with Jerry Wilson

Meet in the Middle “Meet in the Middle,” just in case you may not be a county music fan, was written by Chapin Hartford, Jim Foster, and Don Pfrimmer. It was the very first release for Diamond Rio, a new country group at the time. The song was an immediate success as it reached the top of Billboard’s country music chart. It was the first time a group in country music had a debut to reach number one on the chart. The song tells the story of a boy and girl who became friends. Although they lived far apart, the relationship flourished. They had many challenges but determined to make their relationship work. They were eventually married and evidently the marriage had a happy ending. The relationship was a success because the couple learned from experience the importance of being able to meet in the middle. Here is a part of the story from the pen of the writers: “It was seven hundred fence posts from your place to ours, Neither one of us were old enough to drive a car, Sometimes it was

raining, sometimes it would shine, We wore out that gravel road between your house and mine. I’d start walking your way, you’d start walking mine, We’d meet in the middle ‘neath that old Georgia pine, We’d gain a lot of ground ‘cause we both give a little, And there ain’t no road too long when you meet in the middle. It’s been seven years tomorrow since we said our vows, Under that old pine tree, you ought to see it now, Standing in the back yard reminding me and you, That if we don’t see eye to eye, there’s something we can do.” I’d start walking your way, you’d start walking mine, We’d meet in the middle ‘neath that old Georgia pine……” The words to the county hit may certainly present words to ponder in our day and age where there is so much gridlock in our society. It just seems that the prevailing attitude in today’s world is “I’m right and you are wrong.” If our agendas are totally selfishly

motivated without consideration and concern for others and the total picture, the problems that we face today will linger on throughout all our tomorrows. There are several statements in this song that are worth listening to. The couple noted as they stood in the back yard that when they didn’t see eye to eye, they would meet in the middle because they both gave a little and there’s not a road to long when you meet in the middle. In our recent election of national, state, and local leaders and officials,, we saw very little change in leadership. In spite of the election, we are told that our problems and challenges will continue to increase. We have run out of people and things to blame. It’s now time for all of our lawmakers to take action. Sometime ago, I ran across a poster that got my attention and for the longest time, I kept it in my office. It contained a picture of a gaggle of frustrated geese. Written beneath the picture were these words: Do Something! Lead, Follow Or Get Out Of The Way. Just a thought.

I’m thankful for…(part 2) Day 5: I am thankful for my grandparents, Bill and Geneva Collins, who have always been there for me, just as my parents have. They have so much faith in Jesus, and His love shines through them. They are a shining example of what kind of people we should all strive to be. Day 6: I am thankful for my sister, Kristine. She is my sister by chance, but my friend by choice. I love her dearly, and will always treasure all of the memories that we have made (and will make) together. Day 7: I am thankful for my brother, Jere. My sister and I may have tortured him when we were kids (we both eventually paid for it), but I can’t imagine not having him. I don’t get to see him very often because he stays so busy with work, but I love him dearly. Day 8: I am thankful for my nephews, Ethan and Nathan. I love them both as much as I do my own, and I love it when they want to see “Aunt Jiffer.” Ethan loves to come over and help with any kind of work that needs to be done outside, and Nathan loves to come over and eat everything

in my kitchen (I still haven’t figured out how someone so small can eat so much). Day 9: I am thankful for my sister-in-law, Mary. We haven’t always been close, but the last few years we have become really good friends, and now I don’t know what I would do without her. I love her, and really wish she lived closer. Day 10: I am thankful to live in The United States of America, and am definitely proud to be an American. Day 11: I am thankful for all of the men and women, past and present, who have fought to protect this great country I live in and all of the rights and freedoms that we Americans have. I am also thankful for a community that gathers to show their appreciation for the veterans of this community. The Veteran’s Day and Field of Flags Program at the Courthouse Monday was amazing. Captain English gave an incredible speech, and I felt honored to just to be in the same room with some of this country’s bravest men and women. Day 12: I am thankful

for all of the men and women who work in the emergency services field: police officers, firefighters, EMT/ Paramedics, doctors and nurses. So many people in those fields put their lives on the line to protect the life of a stranger, and they will always be heroes and deserve the utmost respect in my mind, whether they do it full-time, part-time or volunteer. Day 13: I am thankful that my children have (and always have had) amazing teachers who never think twice about going above and beyond for their students. I am also thankful that they have a wonderful daycare to go to after school, where I know that they will be loved and well taken care of while I work. Day 14: I am thankful for my job and the people I work with. I truly and whole-heartedly enjoy my job, and hope that readers enjoy what I write as much as I enjoy writing it. The people I work with can make a bad day better, and we all support each other. I truly feel like I have the best job in the world. To be continued next week…


By 28th Judicial District Circuit Court Judge Clayburn Peeples

Home Groan Tomatoes Summer got completely away from me this year, and I pretty much never made it into the garden. I did, however, have a few tomato plants. But not any to brag about for certain. As a matter of fact, I didn’t even plant them myself. They were volunteers that sprouted in the early spring from plants I grew in the same location the previous season. So many sprouted they were as thick as grass at one point, so finally I decided to just save six or seven of the more sturdy looking ones and see what I would get. And that’s what I did, and sometime around the Fourth of July they began to ripen. Ever since then I’ve had a bumper crop of torpedo shaped, 2 ½ inch long red tomatoes. The vines have looked great all summer; they have been disease free and they are still loaded, even today. Furthermore, the late season crop is every bit as tasty as the first ones to ripen on the vine in the summer. And that’s the problem. They taste pretty much like water, no flavor at all. It is an article of faith among home gardeners that back yard tomatoes taste like ambrosia, and frequently they do, but not always. These have been pretty much worthless. As I was pondering my short sightedness last spring in taking a chance on volunteer plants, I thought back to the previous few years, and decided that even when things go the way they’re supposed to, home grown tomatoes don’t taste as good as they used to. Could I be right about that? Well it turns out I am. Of course, everybody knows that store bought tomatoes aren’t as good as they used to be, but the usually named culprits (picked too early, refrigerated storage) are only part of the problem, it turns out. An even more serious detriment to flavor is the reason that even your home-grown tomatoes don’t taste like your grandmother’s did. It is because flavor has literally been bred out of them. It all started around 70 years ago when commercial growers discovered a mutated plant. Whereas almost all tomatoes at the time ripened unevenly and had a blotchy appearance, those on the mutated plant turned an

even shade of light green when ready to pick and then an even shade of luscious looking red when ripe. Eureka! Commercial growers loved it because it made harvesting easier, and retailers loved it because red color sells when it comes to food, regardless of taste. And fairly quickly this mutation was bred into nearly every tomato variety developed over the next 60 years. Consequently, tomatoes today are prettier and more profitable then ever before in history. And just about every one of them, except for heirloom varieties and cherry tomatoes, is either too bland to bother with at best. Cherry tomatoes, by the way, taste better than their larger neighbors on the supermarket shelf because due to the way they are harvested, they were never subjected to the same type of breeding. Consequently, they still have much of their natural flavor. Amazingly, no one could figure out why tomatoes have turned tasteless, until this year. In the early summer of 2012, plant scientists finished mapping the tomato genome, and they have discovered that the 70-year-old mutation that enabled producers to offer us beautiful, uniformly red tomatoes all year long, and has been bred into nearly every variety of tomato developed since then, was caused by the DNA in a single gene out of the 35,000 typically found in a tomato. Unfortunately, this same gene also causes tomatoes to develop

between 10 and 15% less sugar, as well as smaller amounts of other compounds that give tomatoes their color, smell and nutritional benefits. Another unintended consequence is that the same factors that facilitate uniform ripening, decrease the presence of certain gases in the fruits (technically, tomatoes are fruits) that give the tomato its once characteristic mouthwatering smell. And smell, of course, is a huge component of taste. And if that’s not bad enough, tomatoes today have 30% less vitamin C, 19% less niacin and only 60% of the calcium they did in the 1960’s. But the good news is that plant scientists think they can alter the tomato’s genome to put all that good stuff back and still keep the uniform ripening feature. Thus far, they’ve been able to boost sugar content 20% by modifying the genetic makeup of the plant. But if they do breed the flavor back into the plants, don’t expect store-bought tomatoes to taste as good as those you grow yourself. They’ll still pick them too green and refrigerate them and pump them with ethylene gas to artificially ripen them, and they’ll still have skin so tough they can survive a fall off the kitchen counter.

Skoog and Hayner begin Wednesday morning musicale concert series Submitted Bridgewater



Brownsville has traditionally had a strong arts community, and for the past forty years, the Wednesday Morning Musicale has sponsored a concert series to support that tradition. The most recent of these offerings occurred Sunday afternoon, November 4, at Temple Adas Israel when Jacquelyn Skoog and Matthew Hayner performed the first concert in the 2012-2013 series. From the opening notes of Handel’s “I know that my Redeemer liveth” to the closing duet from Fiddler on the Roof, the artists proved their talent and versatility. The Temple’s amazing acoustics rang with Miss Skoog’s clear, bell-like soprano and Mr. Hayner’s powerful, well tempered baritone as the artists thrilled the audience with a wide range of selections from oratorio to opera to Broadway. Mr. Hayner, who recently received a Master of Music degree from the University of Memphis, already has an impressive resume` which includes studying abroad and performing in

The Crucible, Tartuffe, and Idomeneo. This fall, he will appear as baritone soloist in Vaughn-Williams’ Serenade to Music with the Memphis Symphony and the Rhodes College Mastersingers. Proof of his talent and training emerged Sunday in his controlled dynamics in Schubert’s “Abendstern” and in his powerful interpretation of Bellini’s “II fervidodesiderio.” Miss Skoog, who is currently studying voice with Susan OwenLeinert at the University of Memphis, recently presented her senior recital, and will perform the role of Zerlina in the University’s April 2013 production of Don Giovanni. She spent part of this past summer in Austria participating in the prestigious Tyrolean opera program. Miss Skoog’s crystal clear tone and her energy sparkled Sunday in solo selections by Handel, Bellini, and Puccini. After intermission, Miss Skoog and Mr. Hayner delighted the audience with duets including Mendelssohn’s “How lovely are the messengers,” “Jesus, though joy of loving hearts” by Gotze, and “The Prayer” by

David Foster. Their voices complement each other beautifully, and the chemistry between these two vocalists was evident in their interpretations of Mozart’s “Papageno! Papagena” from The Magic Flute, and Loesser’s “I’ll Know” from Guys and Dolls. Brownsville’s own Ronnie Richards skillfully rendered challenging accompaniments with his customary style and grace. When the last phrase of Bock’s “Do You Love Me?” from Fiddler on the Roof was sung, the audience was clearly not ready for the program to end. The only disappointing aspect of the afternoon was that more people were not present to enjoy the stellar performance. The 2012-2013 concert series is dedicated to the memory of Mrs. Helen Tripp McDow and Mrs. Martha Jane Williams, two long-time members of the Wednesday Morning Musicale and staunch supporters of the arts in Brownsville. The next concert will be Sunday, April 14, 2013, when the Jackson Symphony Chamber Musicians will perform at Temple Adas Israel.

In Memory of Bradley S. Jones March 20, 1988-November 14, 2011

The Broken Chain We knew little that morning that God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly; in death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you; you did not go

alone; for part of us went with you, the day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide; and though we cannot see you, you are always at our side.

Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same; but God calls us one by one, the chain will link again. Lovingly submitted by: Miranda and Ray Jones, Jamila and Jada


Tenth Review Club Meets at Chamber By Marty Williams What an evening! Fourteen Tenth Review Club members clambered in the Chamber door, loaded down with all of their goodies for the Samaritan Purse (Operation Christmas Child) boxes! We have become a human assembly line when it comes to this project! We had enough goodies for 20 boxes and every bit of it fit in the box this time! Our new Chamber Director, Reneé Moss was invited to our meeting and we asked her to fill in on the

assembly line for a member who sent their goodies, but couldn t be there. She said the filling of the 20 boxes was over before she could even blink her eyes and get into the rhythm! We are that good! Ilene will get our boxes mailed for us and we all paid for our portion of the postage. We then had a short meeting, and discussed next month’s Christmas Brunch, where we are all responsible for bringing a dish and our secret pal gift! Oh, we love this event! It will be at Marty Williams’ home and on that day, the

club will burst into the Christmas season like a flame on a candle! We hung around for the rest of the evening catching up on the new grandbabies of Rita Hathcock and Kathy Cook. Of course, pictures were going around the table with lots of adorable, descriptive words accompanying each set of pictures! We’ve gone from our own babies to our own grandbabies! Amazing! Our next meeting will be December 1, 10:30 a.m. at Marty Williams’ home. Remember your dish and secret pal gift!

By Dr. Andrew Russell A regular visit to your local dental office is essential in preserving your teeth, your finances and even your life. Too often people are hesitant to visit a dentist either due to a negative experience in the past or from a perceived notion that "if everything feels fine, everything is fine!" The dental profession has been working hard to help and encourage people to overcome these obstacles. Advances in dental technology have greatly enhanced the dental experience compared to the days of old. The dreaded "shot" necessary to numb a tooth needing treatment can now most often be administered pain free, thanks to powerful topical anesthetics and improved techniques. The old "novocaine" is a thing of the past, and new anesthetics give a more profound numbing to ensure patient comfort. Many offices offer music, local television and even movies to make your time in the office more enjoyable, which is especially helpful with children. On the horizon, there is even a medicine that reverses the anesthesia so that you aren't left with hours of that numb feeling after your visit. The goal of every dentist is to keep the patient's teeth healthy enough to avoid needing invasive treatment. Dental science now fully knows what causes tooth decay and

periodontal (gum) disease, which allows your dentist to give you personal instruction on how to avoid problems. The recommended six-month "cleaning" appointment is so much more than just cleaning your teeth. Too many people skip this service thinking that it is unnecessary as long as everything feels okay. Nothing could be further from the truth. In Haywood County, the number of people who could be diagnosed with periodontal disease is astounding. This preventable gum disease is responsible for tooth loss, mouth pain and has even been linked to heart disease. Regular cleanings along with instructed care at home can ensure that you escape having to put your teeth in a cup at night. The regular hygiene appointment is also instrumental in not only saving your teeth from periodontal disease but also in saving you money. Avoiding the dentist until you have a problem almost always requires dental work that is five to ten times more expensive to repair than if that problem was found by your dentist at a regular checkup. The saying "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" is never more true than in dentistry. Technology

has given us digital radiography (x-rays), which produces crystal clear computer images of your teeth to detect problems and also uses only twenty percent the amount of radiation of the older film-based technique. With today's bonded filling materials, small cavities can be repaired with minimal tooth structure removal. Another important element of regular dental visits is an oral cancer screening. Finding cancer at its earliest stage increases the success rate of treatment exponentially. A regular examination is an important part of ensuring a high quality of life, especially if you have a history of tobacco use. If something feels out of the ordinary in your mouth for more than a couple of weeks, a visit to your dentist may save your life. Your dentist may be the only one to ever give you a proper intraoral cancer screening. There is much more to write about dentistry in today's world. Future articles will discuss some of the many treatment options available to you here in Brownsville that can keep your mouth not only healthy, but also looking and feeling great.

Thursday, November 15, 2012

Weekly Devotional Jesus says, “If your brother sins, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him. And if he sins against you seven times a day, and returns to you seven times, saying, ‘I repent,’ forgive him.” (Luke 17:4). So at 8:00am you find out your friend has gossiped about you. When you confront him, he repents. You forgive him and start over. Then at 9:30, you walk around the corner and hear him telling something else about you. He repents again. Then at 11, this friend steals from you. You confront him, get your stuff back, and he repents. Then at 1:00 you find him doing something else against you. Seven times in a day is an awful lot. I don’t know if I could forgive this guy after the third or fourth time. I take great comfort in the fact that the Apostles of Jesus also understood that this was an impossible command. When Jesus gave them the command, their response was, “Increase our faith!” (Luke 17:5). They understood that they could not carry out this command on their own. They needed faith in order to forgive. Only God can mold a man’s heart so that he is able to forgive someone like this, and He does it the same way He saves men’s souls, through faith.

Hometown Hero Jere Wright BY JENNIFER WILLIS jwillis@statesgraphic. com “Haywood County is a better place because of him,” said Haywood County Mayor Franklin Smith, who nominated this week’s “Hometown Hero,” Jere Wright. Smith’s nomination letter read: “I would like to nominate Jere Wright as one of your ‘Hometown Heroes.’ Jere has been Captain of the District 9 Volunteer Fire Department since Haywood County started rural fire protection in 1987. Jere has given countless hours as a volunteer firefighter, first responder and community activist. Jere and his fellow volunteers have purchased additional equipment for their department and currently work with two TVA power plants in their area to provide training to the employees in the case of a true emergency. Jere Wright is one of over a hundred volunteer firemen in Haywood County, and he is a living example of what makes Haywood County a special place to live.” Jere Wright was born to Jere Wright, Sr. and Dee Wright in Chicago, and moved to Villa Park, a small town 25 miles west of Chicago, when he was six-years-old. As a child, Jere spent his summers with his grandparents in Sidona, Tennessee, which is where he developed his love for country living. After graduating from Willowbrook High School in Villa Park, he married his wife, Debbie, and shortly after they moved to Tennessee. Debbie’s grandparents lived between Nutbush and Tibbs, so they eventually moved to Tibbs, and have been there ever since. Jere began working at Lasco in 1983, but left there in 1992 when he accepted a position as an engineering technician at Marvin Windows and Doors in Ripley. He still works for Marvin, but now acts as the company’s Safety and Health Coordinator. He manages the company’s emergency medical response team, oversees and designs the facility’s security and fire protection systems, designs and delivers classes for OSHA compliance, acts as the company’s co-lead on the OSHA VPP STAR program, and that just scratches the surface. Jere began his journey as a volunteer firefighter in 1987 when Haywood County began their rural fire protection program. The Tibbs community elected a board of directors, and Jere was named Vice President. The board’s first task was to raise funds for the construction of the building, and

construction was completed in 1988. 25 years later, District 9 is a vital part of the Tibbs Community. Jere and the other volunteers go above and beyond, applying for their own grants, building their own training facilities with donated materials, securing equipment outside of what the county provides and developing a working relationship with TVA. Thirteen agencies from Dyer, Lauderdale and Tipton counties have utilized District 9’s training props, which includes a “maze” trailer, a roof ventilation prop and a combination confined space/rope rescue training tower. “The best part of being a volunteer fireman is helping people,” said Wright, “and the worst part is seeing people lose everything they have. It’s hard to imagine surviving a fire with only the clothes on your back.” Jere went on to say; “I could not do this without the help of a great bunch of people that have the same desire I do, which is to help someone in need. I have seen a lot of great volunteers in my 25 years, and not just in District 9. We have a lot of devoted volunteers throughout the county.” David Smith, paramedic RN at the Haywood County Ambulance Authority, sent Jere the following letter: “Dear District 9 firefighters, I wanted to write you in regard to the motor vehicle crash that you all worked on March 14, 2009. You all did an unbelievable job in a very tough situation. It is a great comfort to know that when we respond to a call in your district that not only will we have extra hands, but also we have very qualified personnel to handle any situation. Because you all were doing the work, I had a chance to sit back and watch. You can see the work that you and your Captain have put into your training. In no other district would we have had the help that we had that day. Not only did you fight the fire, but also you helped with traffic control, controlled the victim’s family and even assisted with another medical call on the scene. Most of all, you had the huge task of extricating the victims. This call was as bad as it gets, and you all handled it with class and professionalism. And what makes it even more incredible is that you don’t get paid to do it. I have seen people who get paid to do what you did and don’t put in half the effort that you all did. On behalf of the HCAA, particularly shift one, I thank you.” Jere decided to embark on a new journey, and enrolled in EMT school in 1992. He began

working part-time at the Haywood County Ambulance Authority in 1994, and still works there today as an EMT-IV. I asked Jere what the best part about working at the HCAA was, and he said, “It’s all about helping people, and we have a great staff. I could not cope with the tragedies we see if it weren’t for the people I work with.” Jere unselfishly devotes himself to helping people because he “has always liked helping people.” But, Jere said, “There is no way I could have ever done the things I have in the fire service or EMS without the unconditional support of my wife. She has always been there for me, whether it’s to listen to me talk after a bad call or give me advice on how to handle a situation. She has been extremely patient and understanding when I spend time away from home training, which is a lot. I am a lucky man, and I love her more every day.” Jere also wanted to express his thanks to Mayor Franklin Smith, whom he says has played a vital role in the success of District 9. “Without Franklin, most of what I have achieved at District 9 could not have been done,” said Jere. I asked Jere is he felt he was a hero, and his response was: “No, I don’t think so. I just apply my training to help people.” But, there are a lot of people in Haywood County who would disagree. I received dozens of nominations for Jere, and they all shared a common opinion. Almost everyone who said he deserved this also said they had never met anyone who worked as hard to help others as Jere does. When I sat down to write this article, I thought it would be easy, but I was wrong. It was probably the hardest I have written, simply because I know Jere in a different way than any other person I have ever interviewed. He is my daddy, and saying I am proud of that is an understatement. I know exactly how much of himself he has selflessly given to help others in need over the last 25 years. He is a hero, is worthy of the title “Hometown Hero,” and I love him very, very much. Jere and his wife of 32 years, Debbie, have three children: Jennifer, Kristine and Jere. They also have four grandchildren that they love to spoil rotten: Sarah, Jacob, Ethan and Nathan. When Jere has free time and is not busy spoiling his grandchildren, he enjoys spending time with his family and working in his shop.

Veteran’s Day and Field of Flags ceremony draws large crowd BY JENNIFER WILLIS The Veteran’s Day and Field of Flags program, which was a combined effort by VFW Post 4838, the David Craig DAR Chapter and the Brownsville Exchange Club, was held at the Haywood County Courthouse Monday, November 12. A large crowd gathered

inside of the circuit courtroom to show their appreciation for all of those that have served, or currently serve in, the United States military. After an opening prayer by Reverend Ralph Brown from Holly Grove Baptist Church, Haywood County Trustee Sonny Howse and Mayor Jo Matherne welcomed guests. Exchange Club President Jody Lea

thanked those who purchased a flag in honor or in memory of someone, and spoke briefly about the benefits of the fundraiser and how beautiful the flags looked flying around Court Square. Afterwards, the Haywood High School Air Force JROTC Color Guard presented the colors as the Haywood High School Choir sang the National Anthem.

Ray Dixon, VFW Post 4838 Adjutant/ Quartermaster, took to the podium and read the names of Haywood County residents who died during World War II, and then requested a moment of silence to honor all fallen soldiers. He then requested that all veterans present stand and be recognized for their service to our country. Daniel Thornton,

Commander of VFW Post 4838, introduced the guest speaker, Captain Blake English, who gave an incredible speech about the men and women who serve their country. Captain English spoke with an enormous amount of heart, and his true love for this country and his career was evident. After he finished speaking he received a standing ovation from the crowd.

The HHS Choir sang another patriotic selection before the HHS AFJROTC Color Guard retired the colors. Reverend Brown said a closing prayer before guests were asked to retire to the front lawn for placement of a wreath at the monument. Members of the David Craig Chapter of the DAR provided refreshments.

Students “parade” around HES with new words In October, students in Mrs. Elizabeth Lovelace’s first-grade class participated in a Vocabulary Parade based on the book by Debra Frasier, Miss Alaineus: A Vocabulary Disaster. To start, students chose a word that was above a first-grade level. The students worked at home throughout the month to learn their word and to create an outfit or hat that depicted the word. During

the Vocabulary Parade, students wore their costumes around the school as they traveled to various classrooms to present their words. During their presentation, students gave a brief definition, the part of speech, and a sentence using their chosen word. Some of the words chosen this year included foliage, irrigation, tributary, abacus, and bipartisan. Photo submitted

Tomcats return slew of talent for upcoming season

Photo by Jeff Ireland Jordon Varnado, left, jostles for position during Tomcat Madness Friday night in Brownsville. By JEFF IRELAND Throughout the 2011-12 season, it was commonplace for Haywood to have a lineup on the floor that featured nothing but freshmen and sophomores. Just three upperclassmen – DeMarcus Tyus, Kendal Middlebrooks and Montravious Maclin – saw significant minutes a season ago. Despite that abundance of youth, Haywood went 21-9, took third in the District 13AA tournament and advanced to the region quarterfinals where they lost to Liberty, a team that made the state tournament. Tyus graduated, but

Middlebrooks and Maclin, now seniors, are back, as is the nucleus of youngsters that were largely responsible for the team’s success last season. During Friday’s Tomcat Madness, an intrasquad scrimmage that introduced the team to the community, sophomore Kyler Douglas drove the lane and dunked. Second-year head coach Kendall Dancy said that was just one example of how many of his players have grown since last season. “I’m not sure he would have done that last year,” Dancy said of Douglas, who was all-district last year as a freshman. “The improvement of everybody is tremendous. What a year of strength can do

is amazing … For freshmen to get varsity experience … It can only help.” Douglas is just one of several sophomores who started or saw a ton of time last year. Starting point guard Nigel Peeples returns, as do guard Alandis Delk and forward Jordon Varnado. The junior class is also very strong. Sadarius Delk is a returning starter at forward and Jeffrey Starks, the team’s top threat from 3-point range, is back. The senior class will be led by Middlebrooks, a versatile guard, and Maclin, the team’s strongest player who can be a beast in the paint. Dancy said his approach will be a little different this

Douglas was named all-district as a freshman last year. year with a group that’s already been through a season on the varsity level. “Last year I really pushed them a lot,” said Dancy. “This year I get to strategize and coach them a lot more.” The Tomcats’ potential was on full display last Saturday in the jamboree at FayetteWare. Haywood defeated Class 3A Germantown 47-39 in a two-quarter contest. The season gets underway tomorrow in Smyrna against Lancaster Christian. On

Saturday the Tomcats will play Livingston Academy and Cookeville in Clarkrange. On Nov. 27 the Tomcats will travel to Covington and open up the District 13-AA slate against the Chargers. Dancy isn’t making any public predictions about how far the Tomcats will be able to advance this year, but he likes the makeup of his team. Said Dancy, “The sky’s the limit for these guys this year.”

Four HMS Warriors chosen as AllConference The HMS Warrior Football team concluded their season on October 16th. The Warriors finished with an 8-2 record and in the Final Four of the large school sectional playoffs. The entire team accomplished so much throughout the season. (From left) Dexter Walker, Corey Newble, Montavius “Peanut” Pugh, and Russ Cates were chosen as AllConference players. As well as being selected

for this award, Dexter Walker was chosen as Defensive MVP for the conference. Corey Newble was the top quarterback and Montavius Pugh was the top receiver in the conference. These athletes, as well as the entire team and coaches, express appreciation for all the support they received during the season. Coaches are Ernie Jackson and Greg Bontrager.

Lady Tomcats will be in rebuilding mode By JEFF IRELAND Losing key players to graduation happens just about every year to high school basketball programs. It's expected. But losing all five starters, plus the team's number one option off the bench, doesn't happen very often. That's exactly what Haywood Lady Tomcats coach Zandra Jones, who is entering her 29th year, will be dealing with this year. “It's a big turnover,” said Jones, who's team will begin the 2012-13 season on Nov. 27 at District 13-AA rival Covington. “Probably the biggest in four years.” The team's leading scorer, center Trinity Jackson, graduated, as did her front court mate, Jalisa

Bell. Point guard Ida Parrish, shooting guard Alexis Peeples and Chelsey Owens, a slashing wing who was probably the team's MVP the last three weeks, are also gone. Zanese Kinchelow, who was usually the first player off the bench and also started on occasion, graduated as well. Seniors Calandra Tate and Kaayla Cunningham, both guards, are the only two players returning who saw any significant minutes a season ago. Jones summed up her team's status this year with three words: “Rebuilding, rebuilding, rebuilding.” Several younger plays will have to make strides this season if Haywood, which went 16-10 last season, is going to compete in an always tough

District 13-AA. Sierra Green, a 5-10 junior, will take over Jackson's spot in the post. Summer Cunningham, a sophomore, also figures to play a key role. Younger players like Dasjia Wilson, Idialas Flagg and Mayia Bradford will also get a chance to shine this year. The schedule will be particularly difficult in the early going. After playing a Covington, a team that advanced to the sectionals a season ago, Haywood plays Obion County (Nov. 30), last year's Class AA state runner up, and Dyersburg (Dec. 11), a region semifinalist last season. Jones has been preaching hard work and patience during the preseason. “They're going to have to expect for us to grow,”

Wellwood/Zion News By Denise Phillips Although eighteen couples were in Brentwood for the marriage retreat, HBA Director Charles Pratt shared an excellent message with Zion Church Sunday morning. He used I Peter 1 to focus on the second part of salvation following justification. We must be sanctified to live out a Christ-filled life in a perverted world. We need to be a holy vessel! Thanks to Reese Ferrell for leading the congregational music during Rad’s absence. Thanks to Rachel Stewart for playing so beautifully at the piano each Sunday. I’m sure we will miss her for awhile following the soon to be birth of Robert Sean. Sunday night each Sunday school class hosted an outreach event to prove that “Others Matter.” Several choir members met at the truck stop following practice for their Christmas musical. Sixteen senior adults gathered at Franklin and Regina Thomas’ home for lunch on Election Day. Everyone had a wonderful day with lots of great food and fellowship. Our son Justin came by Wednesday to visit with his dad while on company business in Brownsville.

He brought lunch from Sonic and chilled for a minute before heading back to Jackson. Brother Butch from Harmony reported nine attended the men’s community prayer breakfast Thursday and he led the devotion. If anyone would like to join this faithful prayer group they meet Thursday mornings at 6:00 at ZBC. Tommy and Judy Elrod came over Saturday and we traveled to Bells twice. We ate lunch at Burger Basket and after visiting with mama and our boys and their families, we went back for dinner at the Olympic. I enjoyed a visit with Sam Pyron and Sabrina Saveh who were also eating there. We also stopped by Ms. Peace’s yard sale and she said she reads the news every week. Thanks to all of you that share that encouragement with me. It makes reporting the news worthwhile. Zion’s RA’s and GA’s will host a volleyball game to benefit the MCMS Fund and buy a scoreboard for the gym November 17th. Zion’s Harvest Festival is November 18th with guest speaker Dr. Bob Agee. The annual joint Thanksgiving hosted by The Church of God is on

November 20th. Children’s Christmas Program will be performed December 9th at 6:00 P.M. Everyone witnessed a miracle with Ricky Joyner Tuesday. He is on the mend, but still having tests run at this time. Continued prayers will be needed in the days ahead. Praise God from whom all blessings flow! Continue praying for other sick folks and their families, military personnel and families, shut-ins, those mourning loss, and the leaders of our country. I also have a special prayer request for Kelly Stewart, daughter of Floyd and Pam. She will be traveling with a group from Crockett County High School to Romania where she will spend two weeks doing mission work. I’m sure she could use financial support as well and if you would like to donate you may do so by making out a check to “Belief in Motion” and specifying in the memo line, “Crockett trip – Kelly Stewart.” The trip isn’t until May, but costs about $2500. Call me at 772-4257 or email me at phillipsd6@ if you have news. People want to know!

Hillville - Eurekaton News By Vicki Williams “God loves me even when I do nothing at all.” This is our Thought for the Week as published by Eugene Bales of Missouri in the Upper Room Devotional. Most of us are taught by our parents that we only praise others when they do something extraordinary, not just ordinary achievements. Sometimes we need to praise others for just ordinary achievements. People have different values and ways of life. We need to pray to be more Christ-like with those who have different values and ways of life than our own. The Mt. Pleasant UMW met on Wednesday, November 7 in the fellowship hall. Those in attendance were Hope Cannon, Sue Goodman, Barbara Hayes, Deborah Lewis and I. Don’t forget about the Joint Community Thanksgiving service between Mt. Pleasant UMC, Harmony Baptist Church and Good Hope MB Church will be held on Wednesday, November 21 at the Mt. Pleasant UMC. This is also when the cancer survivors are recognized. So please

make plans to attend this very special event. Mt. Pleasant UMC recognized veterans in attendance during worship service on Sunday, November 11. Those who were recognized were Bro. Jerry Wilson, Karl Shumaker, Billy Edmonds< Mr. Luther Austin and Mr. Bobby Cannon. Some of the Mt. Pleasant UMC congregation visited with our sister church, New Life UMC in Ripley on Saturday evening, November 10, to enjoy a fish fry and singing. Those in attendance from Mt. Pleasant were Gerald and Deborah Lewis, Regina Austin, Jerry and Peggy Lewis, Bro. Jerry Wilson, Georgia McBride, Dennis and Leann Watson, Billie Kirkland, Barbara Hayes, Sandy Campbell and I. We enjoyed a great time of fellowship, good food and a lot of praise and worship. Also Mike Johnson and Gaylon Johnson were there as their group performed.

Holly Grove News By Martha H. Jones “Take Stock” was the subject of the message on Loyalty Day delivered by Brother Slade Johnson, a former pastor of Holly Grove. This is a different world we live in today. What takes your attention away from living the Christian life? What is your life tuned too? We must keep our focus. Salvation comes through Jesus Christ as we accept Him as Savior and Lord, and it is a lifelong journey. There are consequences in spiritual drifting. God loves us, but He will also judge and discipline us if we ignore his will for us, and go our own way without regard for Him. Where are you in your walk with the Lord? Brother Slade is the pastor of the Handy Rd. Baptist Church in St. Louis. He has been there 25 years, ever since leaving Holly Grove. We were also glad to see Peggy, his wife. Tim and Christy Fain were there to lead the music. Christy and her little son, Micah brought the special music. It was great. Little Davidia Jones was dedicated to the Lord Sunday. Brother Fred Campbell gave the charge to her mother, Mandy

and to the grandparents, Andy and Jan Wynn. The church welcomed Andy Wynn into its fellowship. Following the services, everyone gathered in the family life center for a delicious meal together. There is life after the election, but for seniors we will probably be saying “goodbye” to medicare and hello to obamacare, for the seniors are looked upon as expendable. We are in trouble as a nation if we continue down the paths we are on. I wish a happy birthday to our little great, grandson Jensen, who celebrates his third. Happy birthday also to Brenda Simpson, Alma Herbert, Logan Martin and Kimberly Scott. Let’s not neglect to pray for the sick. Dorsey Watridge is at Crestview. Remember him along with Jan Wynn, Bobby Perry, Betty Doyle, Mary Ann Ballard, Jimmy Grammer and Virginia Taylor. Others are Sonny Carr, Fletcher Lewis, Justin Climer, Viola Brown, and Butch Wilson. Also include Ricky Joyner, Annalee Myers, Ginger Warren and Ray and Janie Hight.

Brother Fred and Nancy Campbell, Greg and Beth Baker and Dewey and Martha Jones attended the Gideon’s International Pastor’s Appreciation banquet last Thursday night at the Brownsville Baptist Church. Dr. Tommy Russell, the president of the Brownsville camp, welcomed everyone. Following a delicious buffet meal, Sherry Tritt sang the special music. The Gideon’s guest speakers were Joe Fetzerd and Tommy Owen. Gideon’s International serves as the arm of the churches distributing Bibles all over the world. Dewey Jones was honored Friday night when Alan and Debbie Jones carried him out to celebrate his birthday by enjoying a meal at a Jackson restaurant. The days are slipped by so fast. Thanksgiving is nearly here, and Christmas is just around the corner. Holly Grove Church and Allen, Zion and Providence churches will be celebrating Thanksgiving with The East Haywood Church of God this year…

UT Ex Extxtetension It’s Turkey Time in Tennessee By Walter Battle People have been calling the office and asking about turkey cooking. Although there are several ways to cook this most delicious fowl, I will base this article upon the traditional method of roasting. By the way, I love turkey! I’m like Ralphie’s dad in the Holiday movie classic “A Christmas Story” who was referred to as a “turkeyholic.” Here are the safe ways to handle, prepare, and store turkey according to a United States Department of Agriculture publication released by my friend Professor Janie Burney of the University of Tennessee. Thawing time in the refrigerator (38° F) Approximately 24 hours per 5 pounds (whole turkey) 4 to 12 pounds 1 to 3 days 12 to 16 pounds 3 to 4 days 16 to 20 pounds 4 to 5 days 20 to 24 pounds 5 to 6 days Thawing time in cold water Approximately 30 minutes per pound (Whole turkey) 4 to 12 pounds 2 to 6 hours 12 to 16 pounds 6 to 8 hours 16 to 20 pounds 8 to 10 hours 20 to 24 pounds 10 to 12 hours (Change water every 30 minutes) If thawing in the microwave check manufacturer’s instructions for the size turkey that will fit into your oven, the minutes per pound and the power level to use for thawing. Remove all outside wrapping and place on a microwavesafe dish. After thawing, always remove neck and giblets from the body cavity, wash the turkey inside and out with cold water; drain well and prepare for cooking immediately. Cooking times for thawed turkey at 325°F. These times are approximate and should always be used in conjunction with a properly placed thermometer. Unstuffed 4 to 8 pounds (breast) 1½ to 3¼ hours 8 to 12 pounds 2 ¾ to 3 hours 12 to 14 pounds 3 to 3 ¾ hours 14 to 18 pounds 3 ¾ to 4 ¼ hours 18 to 20 pounds 4 ¼ to 4 ½ hours 20 to 24 pounds 4 ½ to 5 hours Stuffed 4 to 6 pounds (breast) not usually

applicable 6 to 8 pounds (breast) 2½ to 3½ hours 8 to 12 pounds 3 to 3 ½ hours 12 to 14 pounds 3 ½ hours to 4 hours 14 to 18 pounds 4 to 4 ¼ hours 18 to 20 pounds 4¼ to 4 ¾ hours 20 to 24 pounds 4 ¾ to 5 ¼ hours Roasting instructions 1. Set the oven temperature no lower than 325°F. 2. Add ½ cup of water to the bottom of the pan to keep turkey moist 3. Place turkey breast-side-up on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. 4. Tuck wing tips back under shoulders of bird, called “akimbo” or remove them and use for broth. 5. For optimum safety, it is recommended to cook stuffing outside the bird. If stuffed, stuff loosely and cook immediately. 6. Depending upon your preference a tent of aluminum foil may be (a) placed over the turkey for the first 1 to 1½ hours of roasting time and then removed for browning, or (b) it may be placed over the turkey after it has reached a golden brown. 7. For safety and doneness, the internal temperature, as registered on a meat thermometer, must reach a minimum of 165°F in the thigh before removing from the oven. The center of the stuffing should reach 165°F after stand time. For reasons of personal preferences, consumers may choose to cook turkey to higher temperatures. 8. An ovenproof thermometer may be placed in the thigh of the turkey so you can check the internal temperature at intervals during roasting, or an instant-read thermometer may be used periodically to check the internal temperature during cooking. Remember to wash the stem section of the thermometer thoroughly in hot soapy water after each use. Handling as a leftover 1. Debone turkey and refrigerate all leftovers in shallow containers within 2 hours of cooking. Use leftover turkey stuffing and gravy within 3 to 4 days. If freezing leftovers, use within two to six months for best quality. 2. Cooked turkey may be eaten cold or reheated. Reheat turkey, stuffing and gravy thoroughly to an internal temperature of 165°F. Now, go and enjoy your family and friends while taking the time to offer thanks for all the blessings that flow through our lives! Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy the game!

you are to have them in your life. Don’t wait until tomorrow, because we are not guaranteed another day. I love to read on Facebook everyone’s daily thankfulness. It is wonderful to see what everyone is so thankful for. It also makes you think, what I am thankful for today. Is it just waking up or having a roof over my head?

If you would like to share with us something you are thankful for, please put it on our Facebook page @ Sugar Creek Senior Living Community. Carolyn Freeman is doing wonderful. She is healing so well. Her spirits are high. A smile stays on her face. We are so thankful she is doing good and getting better everyday. Carolyn Freeman we love you. Floy Patton is home

Gwen is a blessing to Dorothy and a wonderful friend. Everyone have a safe and happy Thanksgiving. We are so thankful for all of our residents and their families.
