The Haywood County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a hunting accident that has left one resident dead. The incident took place Monday morning, November 14. According to Sheriff Melvin Bond, Bradley Jones, 23 was hunting in a field for rabbits with his dad, Ray Jones, just north of Brownsville city limits on Highway 79 North. Bond said that somehow, Bradley’s shotgun discharged resulting in a fatal shot that took the young man’s life. The department is investigating the incident as an accident Bond noted. The department will be looking for an autopsy report and forensics team to assist with the investigation. Once they receive the results from the reports, the department will then look following the direction of D.A., Bond said.

Joe Ing resigns from Chamber of Commerce By: CALVIN CARTER ccarter@statesgraphic.com

Brownsville-Haywood County Executive Director Joe Ing announced Monday, November 14 that he was resigning from his position. Ing has served as the Executive Director since 2006. In a written statement to chamber members, Ing wrote: “After discussion with representatives of the board and after reaching terms of my departure, I hereby resign as executive

director of the BrownsvilleHaywood County Chamber of Commerce. It has been an honor and a privilege to serve the people of Haywood County. I have been offered another position, which is in the best interest of my family. I ask that everyone continue to support the work of this chamber and its Board of Directors.” Ing’s resignation wouldn’t have technically become effective until the end of December. He will not return, instead choosing to use his remaining vacation time. While some have expressed

that they will miss Ing, they are also planning to still move forward. “The City of Brownsville wishes Joe well as he moves on to other endeavors. We thank him for his years of service at the chamber; and look forward to working with the chamber board as they make the decisions on his replacement and the future direction of the Chamber in Brownsville and Haywood County,” Brownsville Mayor Jo Matherne said. Chamber President Bob Wallis, said that while the chamber will “carefully take

their time with the process of moving on, and finding a replacement,” he wants to remind the public that the chamber is more than functional, thanks to its board. “The chamber is well and alive,” Wallis said. “We have an excellent board, and while this is just a bump in the road, we’re going to move forward. We will take our time with this and do things slow and easy as a board.” Wallis added that the board will meet later this week to discuss plans on filling the position.

THEFT continued

SUSPECT continued Brownsville. Upon arrival, authorities found victim Donnico Rivers, age 26, from the 400 block Iola, who had been shot once. Rivers was reported as being shot in the chest, but was also described

as talking to authorities. He was airlifted to a Memphis hospital. The victim and witnesses identified Williams, who lives in Farrell Street in Brownsville as the shooter.

Authorities tried to arrest Williams at his residence, but were unable to locate him. The BPD then issued an arrest warrant for Williams for Attempted First Degree Murder.

Former resident to help save the Scott Street Center

The Scott Street Community Resource Center is faced with some challenging times trying to keep its doors open. The center has provided after school programs for children and young adults for 15 years and in recent years have expanded its services and collaborative efforts to include health fairs, and HIV testing. Unfortunately, the center was unable to secure grant funding for the 2011/2012 fiscal year which has put the organization’s fate in jeopardy.

An appeal has been made to the local churches requesting a $200 donation as part of a combined effort to help keep the center afloat until the grant cycles roll around in 2012. However, only five churches (Upper Salem, Prospect CME #2, St. Paul, Friendship, and Willow Grove) have responded thus far. Dr. Michael H. McGhee, Psychiatrist Medical Director of the Behavior Health Center at Clarksville, TN and son of the late Ruby J. McGhee King and Walter King recently made a

$3,000 donation to the Scott Street Community Resource Center. He was made aware of the center’s dilemma via a phone call to his sister, Hope McGhee on the night the Program Director for the Scott Street Community Resource Center, Ms. Karen Jones happened to be delivering a thank you card for Ms. McGhee’s church (St. Paul M.B. Church). Information about the center was exchanged between Dr. McGhee and Ms. Jones while at the home of Ms. McGhee. A check in the amount of $3,000 was received within five days of the conversation. Dr. McGhee has vowed to seek other donors that will be willing to invest in the longevity of this vital organization.

that afternoon, the trailer was gone. Haywood County Sheriff Melvin Bond noted that the trailer contained approximately 2,400 plus Microsoft X-box 360 game consoles. The loss of the consoles along with the trailer

equals to a million dollar theft. The sheriff’s department doesn’t have any more information on the matter as of this time, however, news of the theft has reached the national level among authorities to look out

for the stolen trailer and merchandise. Sheriff Bond said he’s unsure if Microsoft will send out their investigation team on the matter, but wouldn’t be too surprised if they choose to do so.

Upping the Ante Off the Beaten Path with Jerry Wilson

Who shall serve

According to the Associated Press, a news story coming out of Murfreesboro reported that a Tennessee State Representative recently made a statement that infuriated Muslims across the state and nation. State Representative Rick Womick is quoted in the Daily News Journal saying, “Muslims shouldn’t be allowed to serve in the U.S. military.” Representative Womick made the comments last week during a conference of conservative activists that focused on the threat of Islamic extremism in America. Local and national Muslims have called for state officials to rebuke Representative Wormick for the comments. However, the representative stood by his comments later when approached by a reporter with the Daily News Journal. Representative Womick has been both supported and denounced for his statement. I’m certain he has many supporters considering the acts of terrorism that have taken place through the years with many Muslims linked to these merciless acts.

How may of us can put aside the sight of the twin towers falling to the ground and all the events of 9/11? But I also know that not all acts of terrorism we have experienced through the years were carried out by members of the Muslim race. We must continue the war on terrorism on every corner and not be intimidated by our efforts. However, it seems to me that our battles need to be against terrorism in particular rather than targeting an entire race. To resort to certain action could be likened to throwing the baby out with the bath water. Now, let’s move on to the subject of terrorism and serving in the military. If the decision to disallow every race of people whose had members convicted for acts of terrorism to enlist in the armed forces of the United States, the U.S military might cease to exist. I believe that any U.S. citizen meeting all the requirements should not be denied enlistment into the United States military regardless of their race, color or creed. The enlistment oath

taken by any individual entering the U.S. military states: I, xxxxx, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.” Let’s also give our military a little credit. They have a pretty good track record for weeding out the derelict, the violator, the traitor and even the terrorist. The military is also not slack when it comes to dishing out punishment that fits the crime. Let me conclude by saying that I have served in the military with soldiers from several different races, nations and cultures who just happened to have extreme terrorists coming from within their former environment. Yet, they wore the uniform proudly and performed their duties respectfully.

Nickels And Dimes Does anybody use nickels and dimes anymore? I take that back, as I can name at least one person who used them recently in large quantities: me. So I suppose what I must really ask is, if anyone besides me uses them in the place of say, paper currency. Coins over dollars. I have this small blue cup in my room, and for years it has served as a place to keep my loose change. Quarters never last long in the cup, as I use those frequently for a number of purposes like scarce arcade cabinets, soda machines or air in my tires. So actually, the cup has served as more of a holding place for nickels, dimes and pennies.

For years, I’ve rarely used them, until yesterday morning when I needed a bit of gas money to help me get through the day. And it was of course, a few days before payday, so I was left with little choice to use the money I had been storing for a “rainy day.” That is appropriate to say, given the rainy weather we’ve had lately. Handing the gas station owner money for gas in nothing but coins felt awkward. It shouldn’t because money is money. But with my generation, I think that we’re so use to paying by things with either the swipe of a card or paper currency. Then again, maybe that’s beginning to change. It doesn’t need to be said that times are tough

with the economy. And rather than having the luxury of a card swipe here, or a twenty there, we’re really having to scrap by with whatever we have just to essentially get through the day, week, or month. I remember an incident last month where I had three dollars on me, and decided to use it for gas. I nervously noted to the clerk “I know this is weird, sorry.” And she replied, “Not at all. People come in here all the time wanting to get $2 or $3 in gas. I had one young lady who paid for that in nothing but pennies.” In this rough time, that simply makes cents to me.

We may be in a slumping economy and clearly we are, but there is one commodity Tennesseans can’t seem to buy enough of — lottery tickets. That’s right, lottery tickets. Diaper sales are down, I read the other day, but lottery ticket sales are up. Our household finances may have become a nightmare on Elm Street, but increasing numbers of us are trading a dollar for the dream of hitting the big one. The Tennessee Education Lottery Corporation, which operates Tennessee’s various lottery games, recently announced that during last fiscal year the Corporation hit the jackpot, raking in more than 1.13 billion dollars in ticket sales, an all time record. The Corporation’s news release did not say, and cannot, whether the increased sales were the result of dreams or desperation, but either way, the state’s higher education industry was encouraged by the news, because 283.8 million of that 1.13 billion will go to funding education in the state, from preschoolers to HOPE Scholarships, which some 100,000 in state college students are currently using to defray their staggering college bills. It is somewhat ironic that lottery profits go primarily to college students and their families. Ironic, because nationwide and presumably in Tennessee as well, the heaviest lottery players are twice as likely as the general population to not even have a high school diploma. That same group has a median family income well below $20,000, while nearly half of all HOPE Scholarship winner families have average family incomes of more than $70,000. One reason, in addition to the recession (if the recession is indeed a cause. Lottery officials say it is not.) that Tennessee’s lottery is so successful is that it is run extremely well. Even though we’ve only had lottery gambling in the state since 2004, the Corporation has racked up 7.8 billion in gross revenues since then, and it has transferred more than $2 billion into Tennessee education funds. It has done so by aggressively advertising and marketing an ever changing, ever expanding array of “games” and prizes. Especially successful, particularly in the poorer sections of our towns, are the “instant” or “scratch off” games. At any given time, between 38 and 42 of them can be played at your local convenience store, and if you can stand to wait for your prizes, the Corporation operates five of the traditional drawing games as well. All of which has led to a growth rate for the Tennessee Lottery that is 63% higher than the national average. Pretty good, huh?

Yes, but get this. It’s not good enough. The legislature, which gives lottery officials their marching orders, held a hearing recently on ways to wring even more money from the operation. The reason? (I bet you can guess this.) The state, in spite of record lottery revenues, is 22 million dollars short of the money needed to fund all the HOPE Scholarships it has authorized colleges to grant. Because of that, some legislators are calling for lottery officials to increase lottery sales by at least eight percent to offset the shortfall. How did this happen? Well, it happened because starting in 2008, the legislature expanded the categories of students eligible for the scholarships (making it easier to qualify for them) and as a result, we are either going to make the scholarships more restrictive, cut the amount of the awards or come up with 22 million in additional lottery profits. One “solution” being batted around is to allow “players” to purchase lottery tickets with credit and debit cards. (Currently tickets can be purchased for cash only.) Others have suggested that the Corporation reduce the size of cash payouts. But each of these ideas has both adherents and opponents. Many people, even lottery backers, think there is a moral issue when you encourage and entice people to gamble even more, but still others cynically suggest that

we’ve already settled the moral question, that all we’re haggling about now is price. Lottery officials say that reducing prize money is the last thing we should do, that such a move would surely depress ticket sales. So it looks like we may have come to the end of the profit line, right? No, not at all; we’re doing this for the kids, you know. Let’s think of some way to expand the market and get more money for them. Say, how about persuading the big box stores like Wal-Mart and Target to sell tickets. Wow! What a good idea. The perfect demographic. What a boost in sales that would provide. The “gaming” industry believes that’s the next growth area. Surely somebody can come up with the right incentives (or pressure) to persuade them to come on board. And why not allow people to purchase lottery tickets on their smart phones? Or “play” the games online on the Internet? Why make them drive down the street in the rain just to buy a Powerball ticket? And there are also proposals, yes, right here in Tennessee, to allow slot-style video gambling machines in bars and convenience stores. Some states have them and they are hugely profitable. I mean, it’s for education, right? The kids are counting on us. And they’re watching everything we do.

Town and Country Garden Club meet Margaret Welch presented the program for the Town and Country Garden Club as it met November 10, 2011. She provided Zavu paper whites bulbs and members brought their own dish and/ or rocks and marbles

as she directed them in the planting of these bulbs. Paper whites, whose botanical name is Narcissus tazetta, are popular indoor plants for winter and the holiday season. Unlike other narcissus, paper whites don’t require a chilling

period so forcing them is as easy as putting the bulbs in water and waiting. The fragrant flowers bloom within about three weeks after planting for almost instant gratification. President Nan Downing welcomed

everyone including Aileen Smith and Regina Thomas as guests and Susan Leath and Patsy Tritt as new members. Ginger Hatchcock served delicious refreshments of honey bun cake with nuts, fruit and coffee. A basket

containing a peace lily, “mother-in-law” tongue and a scrarecrow provided a November theme. Linda Leath gave a devotional thought on the importance of friends in our lives using the text 2 Corinthians 1:7

Chisholm Lake Store

“And our hope for you is firm because we know that just as you share in our suffering so also you share in our comfort.” A short business meeting followed. Next meeting will be December 8 with a coffee at Jean Williams.

By Alvis M. Bond

The Concerned Citizens of Douglass Community held their regular meeting on Monday evening with interesting projects being worked on to help improve our surroundings. Also, the fellowship group met on Thursday and enjoyed Bingo games and a delicious meal of homemade vegetable soup and dessert. We are happy to know that Betty Brooks is home recuperating after a short day in the hospital, but

sorry to hear that Pastor Shirley Richmond is back in the hospital. Others to include on our prayer list are Katie Hudson, Daphne Nelson, Hattie Watkins, Callie Brooks, Jimmie L. Turner, Shirley Hunter, Luevenia Boyd, Betty Douglas, Edward Vaulx Jr., Jackson Rice, Willie Douglas, Marie Browning, Ora L. Mann who is in the hospital and Callie Langford. We were very happy to have our pastor, Doris Lewis, back Sunday

morning at Dancyville with us after feeling ill last Sunday. We extend our deepest sympathy to the family of Rev. Leroy Anderson, who passed away last week. He is the former pastor of Mt. Olive C.M.E. Church in Somerville, one of our neighboring churches. We would like to wish a happy birthday to Laulla Pruiett whose birthday is on the 15th and Rozell Miller whose birthday is on the 17th.

Brother Steve Pearson, from the Tennessee Baptist Convention, was the guest speaker at Allen on Sunday. He shared with us about the Cooperative Program and our faithfulness in giving to the Lord. Katie Lewis did a great job singing the special music, “Blessings.” Allen children and youth worked hard on Sunday completing the shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child. They prepared 111 boxes for this worthwhile ministry. Shirley Kendrick, Linda Merrick and Loyce Duffey recently attended the Celebrator’s Conference in Sevierville. Dr. David Jeremiah preached every day and the music was great. Charles Billingsley led the music and there were several groups performing, including a special performance by Larnalle Harris. The highlight of the week was an appearance by George W. Bush on Wednesday evening. His speech was mostly patriot, as we were

celebrating our country. He did an excellent job. Harvest Day will be observed on Sunday, November 20. Following the morning service, we will have our annual Thanksgiving dinner at Allen. Our Harvest Day offering this year will go toward purchasing our new 26 passenger bus. The youth are sponsoring a food drive for the Mustard Seed. Please continue to drop off your canned goods and non-perishable items to help restock their pantry for the holidays. Happy Birthday to Marcia Killen, Greg Killen, Janet Bell and Jessica Neal. Please remember Jerry and Carolyn White in your prayers. Jerry’s son, Steve, lost his battle with cancer after a long fight. We are so sorry for your loss. Brownsville is saddened by the loss of Tom Lea. Tom was always smiling and ready to help with your project, big or small. He was

an incredibly talented man, and will be missed. We offer our sincere sympathy to Judy and the rest of the family. We were also saddened by several other untimely deaths in Brownsville this week. Please keep the Elrod/ Travis, White and Glaser families in your prayers, as well. We extend our condolences to each of these families. Also on our prayer list are Bennett Batchelor, John Michael Emerson, Jim Stephenson, Jerry Baggett, Martha Crutcher and Carolyn Danley. We are happy to report that John Michael Emerson is at home and recovering nicely. Our Bible verse for this week is Isaiah 58:4, which states, “”Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer; you shall cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am.’” If you have news or prayer requests, please contact me at gail. barden@gmail.com. Have a great week.

Retirement Center News By Shirley Tucker, Activity Director By Shirley Tucker, Activity Director Church Sunday in honor of Vicky Garrett, who helped take care of Mr. Zaleski before he passed away. Then Vicky was gracious enough to share them with us. If there is anything our resident’s love, it’s fresh flowers. Our singing fireman, David Smith, came to sing for us this week. He is so faithful to Sugar Creek – he comes EVERY month no matter how busy he is. He says October was one of his busiest months ever. He was telling us how he went to a new assisted living place called SomerOak. He didn’t know how they got his name – I told him. SomerOak belongs to some investors and the same company that owns us. We are sister facilities and I gave them his name. I’m much nicer to him than he is to me. He’s rather rude to me. I can’t really say anything bad about him though because he says he keeps a certain attorney on retainer, just in case I do he’ll be ready to SUE me for slander. By the way, David, the Bible says Christians are not to sue other Christians, so you can let that attorney go ASAP. “Bo” and David Pope, John and Virginia

one, but I’ll need to get all the details for you. As soon as I do, you’ll be the first to know. Also keep an eye on our Stanton Welcome Center/Library Facebook page. I try to keep up to date news posted there. Now I don’t want all of you to run outside and look for work being done in relation to this grant; from past experience we have learned how long this takes to actually be seen on the ground, but at least we know it is coming! For those of you needing your GED, please come by the Stanton Welcome Center/ Library and see Ms. Kay. You need to get prepared for any type of job that may come our way with upcoming grants etc., and you need to start now before you get left behind! GED classes are Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. The Library is closed to the public during these hours to provide a better learning environment for the students. The Stanton Christmas Parade is gaining steam!

Please don’t forget to enter! Forms for entering the parade are available from Linda Jones, Coordinator at 731-5486182, or at the Stanton Welcome Center/Library 731-548-2564. Come on out and participate, we have some great things to be thankful for! By the way, if any of you have noticed any damage from golf balls, I witnessed two young men hitting golf balls across the street from beside the railroad tracks and the Stanton Fire Department the other day. Not sure if they hit anything, but I did see them retrieving them from across the street. Hope nobody was driving by! 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 or e-mail me at: Proftster@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.

Sugar Creek ar Creek Retirement Center News Our love and sympathy are with Tom Lea’s family this week. What a shock! How will everyone get their decorations done this year without Tom? I’ve already heard about the help and support people from all over have called and offered Judy. Everyone loves you Judy, as do we. We’ll continue to be praying for your strength and comfort. Sugar Creek wants to thank a wonderful lady this week, who volunteered to help us put our Samaritan shoeboxes together. Lory Markowski came from Woodland Baptist Church with lots of experience. She said her family puts 12 boxes together every year, so she definitely knows what can (and can’t) go in them. We appreciate her volunteering to help us. She saved us a lot of time and work. If any one has a little extra time and would like to call bingo or paint fingernails, just give me a call and we’ll put you right to work. Also want to thank the Zaleski family and Vicky Garrett for sharing an absolutely beautiful arrangement of flowers with us this week. The Zaleski family put them in Brownsville Baptist

Lots of news this week! First of all I want to congratulate Oleo Acres, our Stanton neighbors, on their recent achievement! Wednesday, November 2, the Memphis Zoo filmed at Oleo Acres Farm the first of a yearlong segment to be shown in their new farm exhibit. The Memphis Zoo heard of Stanton and Oleo Acres through individuals and was excited to hear that there was such a farm preserving history while educating others on environmentally friendly living as well as sustainable agriculture.  Tim Ammons (owner) stated that it is a huge honor to be asked to be a part of the farm exhibit and to have the first segment to be about sorghum production the way our forefathers did it.  The segment is scheduled to run midDecember!!! And… more great news!!!! Stanton was notified last week we had been awarded another half million dollar housing grant! I think this grant will work differently than the last

Dickinson, Charlette Jones, Dora Robinson, Donald Markwart, Angela Rayner, Jessie Howell and I had a great ride up to Boyette’s at Reelfoot for lunch this week. The trees were still pretty, and of course, the lunch was wonderful. Our residents love these outings. Speaking of food, it’s almost the time of year when we bring out lots of it. We will be having our lovely candlelight Thanksgiving dinner for our residents and their families. Lily Peak, Lyde Hamilton, Grace Mulligan, Deanna Fox, Jessie Howell, Diane Hooper and I went to the Holidays in Haywood Christmas mart over the weekend. It was a bustling place with lots of good Christmas ideas. Come see us!

This is my year for shocks, I guess. Jimmy and I were supposed to attend our 17-month old granddaughter, Alivia’s, dedication at Englewood Sunday morning, but instead we spent the weekend in Vanderbilt with her and her parents Justin and Britany. She is home now and trying to adjust to seizure medication. She will be monitored for two months and pending other test results will remain on the meds until she is two years old, when doctors will wean her from the medication if no other seizures take place. Please keep this family in your prayers. Although we don’t have a pastor at this time, I do appreciate Zion’s deacons. Wayne Tritt came over and prayed with us before we left for Nashville Friday evening. Also, Rad Ellington took care of my Sunday school class combined with the older youth. Allen Outlaw led the Wednesday night Bible study in Esther, and our deacons made sure there was good preaching in place Sunday. Billy Wright continues to lead from the “David Barton” videos about our Nation’s history / government during Discipleship training. Zion is still the place to visit if you do not have a Church home! Although we were not there Sunday morning, we did enjoy Dr. Paul Veazey’s message Sunday night regarding the Church. He used I Corinthians 12 as his text and focused on Spiritual

gifts of the body of Christ. Zion’s youth had a spaghetti luncheon following the services Sunday morning to raise money for missions. I’m sure it was a success! The Acteen group, led by Lee Morris, has been selling other “hand-made” items to raise money as well. Clay and Audrey Lovett and Elizabeth Campbell enjoyed dinner at our home Tuesday night. Thanks to Jimmy for preparing most of the meal and to Alice Elrod (mama) who also came over and helped while Audrey and I had a Bible study on our back porch. Timothy Potter also dropped by for a visit, but had already eaten. However, our son Jason got in on the homecooked meal since he was

working in the area. It’s funny how many people can smell home cooking and anyone that knows me, knows how much I enjoy fellowships! Brother Butch must have been out of town since I didn’t get an email about the prayer breakfast. Anyone interested in joining this faithful group of men, come to Zion’s family life center every Thursday morning at six. Don’t forget, Harvest Day (20th) and Community Thanksgiving Service at Allen (22nd) and M-Night at Poplar Corner (28th). Please pray for those who are sick, our military personnel and their families, the shut-ins, those who have lost loved ones and the leaders of our country.

Joe and Sandra Fielding were in Ridgedale, MO. the week before, at the Wilderness Club at Big Cedar reveling at the autumn colors. The Festival of Trees will be in high gear by the time you read this! Carl Perkins Advocacy Center sponsors this and it is being held at the College Hill Center Building. FREE admission Wednesday, November 16 thru Friday November 19, from 9 a.m. - 7 p.m. The trees were absolutely dazzling last year! This is such a magnificent idea to help the children at the Center! Thanksgiving is almost here and our town Christmas Parade will be immediately around the corner! They are already taking applications for the parade! We have applications at the Chamber also. The theme of the parade this year is ‘The Joys of Christmas’. The pulse of the town is revving up for all the Holiday action! There will also be a Business and Home decorating competition. The fee is $10 per entry and a copy of the entry form was in last week’s paper. The judges will be ‘eyeballing’ the competitors on December 2 between 5 9 p.m. So be sure to have your decorations in tip top shape at that time! Two very sad events have happened this past week and I believe they have touched all of us.

By Martha H. Jones By Martha H. Jones

We mourn the passing of our beloved friend Tom Lea, who was one of the most caring friends and one of the all-time fantastic and gifted flower designers in all of Tennessee. His love for animals shone, when they asked the community, to send donations to the Haywood County Animal Shelter instead of flowers. We send our sympathy and blessings to his family, as the community tries to adjust to his much-felt absence. ‘It is well with his soul’. The other unexpected event was the surprising resignation of Chamber Director, Joe Ing. His last day in this capacity was Monday of this week. We at the Chamber and those who are on the boards for the Chamber are devastated. He was offered another employment opportunity and decided to ‘go for it’! His compassion and concern for those in need, especially children and the elderly in our community, will always be remembered. There were days when he would tell me… he’d ‘be back later’…he was ‘going out to help some people’. It certainly was a ‘hoot’ working with him and I will miss his sense of humor and kindheartedness. He was my friend. Let me hear from you! Aroundtownmarty@aol. com or 780-4111.

Methodist Church and Rev. C.N. Ricks. Everyone enjoyed their outing to Kentucky Fried Chicken. We had 25 patients to go. They all enjoyed eating fried chicken, mashed potatoes/gravy, mac and cheese, green beans, slaw, rolls, etc. Thank you to KFC staff for making our visit an enjoyable one. Thank you to Mrs. Judy Lea for the lovely bingo prizes she donated for our patients. Our activity calendar

is filling up fast for December. We encourage everyone who would like to come and present a program or just room visits, please give Donna a call soon. Our patients would love to see you and you will be blessed. Thought for the Week: “ The two biggest sellers in any bookstore are the cookbooks and the diet books. The cookbooks tell you how to prepare the food and the diet books tell you how not to eat any of it.

By Betty Scott 13. Ricky and Betty Scott will celebrate their 11th year anniversary on November 18.   Farris and Patsy Climer attended their granddaughter, Leann’s, soccer game in Missouri and had dinner at Lambert’s on Sunday.   My friends, Sandi and Sonny Bishop, are spending a few days in Gatlinburg, courtesy of Sandi’s boss.   This was an early Christmas present and I think was a great gift!  Sandi is a great employee who works for a great employer.   Ricky Scott is suffering from a degenerative hip and has been unable to work. Bettye Sargent will be returning to her doctor this Friday because of kidney

members are obedient to the Lord. To obey God’s command to tithe will revolutionize ones life, as they discover that their money goes farther on 90% than on 100%. Happy birthday to Kimberly Scott, Alma Herbert, Logan Martin, Ronnie Lonon and Marjorie Roberts. Happy anniversary to Sammy and Brenda Stanley. Brother Fred and Nancy Campbell, Greg and Beth Baker and Dewey and Martha Jones were among approximately 85 attending the Gideon’s International Pastor’s appreciation banquet last Thursday night at the Brownsville Baptist Church. The President of the Brownsville camp, Dr. Tommy Russell, welcomed everyone. Following a delicious buffet meal and special music by Mitch Platz, Tammy Klutts, an Auxiliary speaker representing the wives of the Gideons, spoke. The Auxiliary is 95,000 members strong. Also Pastor Ron Woods spoke and Gideon Monti Matlock brought the message. We express our heartfelt sympathy to Jerry and Carolyn White in the death of their son, Steve White and sympathy to

the family of Mr. Joe Lea. We are made aware that life is so uncertain. The sick list this week includes Bobby Perry in a Memphis hospital, Linda Hayes in a Jackson hospital, Viola Brown, Jennifer Stephens, James Lewis, Ruth Taylor, Dorsey Watridge and Josh Parks. Others are Ted Mann, Annalee Myers, Steve Sullivan, Clint Scaff, Elvin Wells, Michelle Vaughn and Rex Bond. Also include Mary Ann Ballard, Justin Climer, Rob Maddox and Fletcher Lewis. Tiffanie Rosales came home from Clarksville for the weekend. She, Alan, Debbie and Jennifer and Dewey and Lorie Jones enjoyed a meal together at Ho Ho’s in Bells Friday night. My sister Oma Garrett would be so proud of her great-grandson, Reeves Garrett, who was chosen as student of the month by the Brownsville Exchange Club. His plans following HHS is to attend Union University, majoring in Biblical Studies. From there, he hopes to attend Southern Theological Seminary. I’m sure his parents Art and Laurel Garrett and grandmother Shirley Garrett are also proud of him.

- Belle Eagle News November is the month to recognize just how much we have to be thankful for. Our health is one thing in life we all took for granted when we were young, but now everyone I know is ailing from something.  I guess everyone I know is getting old and is worn out.   We also have some birthdays for November.   Leeann King, granddaughter of Farris and Patsy Climer, 11-16; Lynn Lane 1116;   Kimberly Scott 1118;  and Bettye Sargent 1124.  Trey Scott, grandson of Ricky and Betty Scott, celebrated his birthday with a party at the WOW in Brownsville last Saturday.   Trey turned seven on November

“Loyalty Day” a very special day at Holly Grove Church, was observed Sunday. Following special music by the choir, led by Bro. Ralph Brown, Dr. John Adams, a former Interium pastor at Holly Grove, brought a wonderful message. We were glad to see his wife, Robbie, with him. Another thing special about that day is fellowshipping and eating together around tables in the church’s family life center and remembering how blessed we are in this great country that afford us the freedom to gather and worship the Lord. We were glad to have all those visiting with us. “Blessings From God on Your Life” was the subject of the message brought by Dr. Adams. The root of all evil is the love of money. Nothing in this whole world belongs to us. The earth is the Lords, the fullness thereof and those who dwell therein. What we have has been intrusted to us as managers, and one day we will give an account to the Owner. Bring ye all the tithe into the storehouse and prove Me sayeth the Lord, I will pour out blessings on you. God’s work is done through the church as the

Corner Oh my, fall has definitely arrived! All these swirling, beautifully colored leaves fluttering everywhere is so pretty. Know what else is pretty neat? Reading a really great book while snuggled up on the couch enjoying a warm cup of tea. Bliss! OK folks, here is the calendar of events for the rest of the month: We have Toddler Time on Monday, November 21 at 11 a.m. All toddlers and their caregivers are invited to join us for stories, coloring and a light snack. We love Toddler Time at the Library! There is NO Lunch and Learn for the months of November and December due to the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday seasons. Lunch and Learn will resume in January 2012. The Library will be

closed on Thursday, November 24 and Friday, November 25 in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday. We hope that everyone has a blessed, safe, happy and healthy Thanksgiving. We’re ready for some turkey, dressing and pumpkin pie! Now that November is halfway over it is time to start preparing for the month of December. Why, you ask? Well, we have this really neat family program that we offer the first part of December and we need to start telling people about it. Which program, you eagerly ask? The Gingerbread House Family Night program, of course! The Gingerbread House Family Night is set for Friday, December 2 at 7p.m. We have so much fun at this annual event. We hear the story

of the “Gingerbread Baby” and “Gingerbread Friends”, then we get to make gingerbread houses out of graham crackers, frosting and (lots and lots of) candy. It is always so much fun to see how much candy gets eaten instead of used to decorate the houses. Hopefully, we won’t have a repeat of last year with our plumbing and having no running water in the building during the Family Night. (Knock on wood and cross your fingers.) In order for us to have a great time at this event, we do require reservations to secure your spot. Space is limited, so get your reservations in early. Please call 772-9534 to make your reservations. Gingerbread House Family Night, Friday, December 2, 2011 at 7 p.m. – yea!!! Happy Reading!
