City of Brownsville Awarded Parks Grant The Tennessee Department of Conservation and Environment (TDEC) has announced that the City of Brownsville has been awarded a $150,000 Local Parks & Recreation Funds (LPRF)Grant to construct a park in downtown Brownsville and repave portions of Volunteer Park on Morgan Street. The City applied for the grant through the BrownsvilleHaywood County Parks & Recreation Department. Brownsville Mayor Jo Matherne attended a ceremony in Nashville recently, in which Governor Bill Haslam and TDEC Commissioner Bob Martineau made the awards announcement. State Senator Dolores Gresham and representatives from the Southwest Tennessee

Development District also attended the presentation. The LPRF grant will be matched with City funds to create an urban park space on the site of the former Tamm Store, at the corner of East Main and Washington. The Park will eventually serve as a trailhead and downtown connector to a citywide system of parks and trails, as part of the City’s strategic plan. It includes a waterfall treatment, seating areas, brick pavers and space for commemorative plaques; and construction should begin in 2013. “After several years of the Tamm lot being vacant, we’re very excited to have this wonderful park come to reality,” Mayor Matherne said. “It will really enhance

our entire historic downtown area, and provide a great place for people to gather to enjoy the increased activity we’re seeing around Court Square.” The Volunteer Park improvements include repaving the interior pathways which connect various areas of the Park. The Mayor said this phase of the grant should be completed in 2013, also. Askew Hargraves Harcourt & Associates of Lakeland, TN designed the Tamm Park; and will work with the City during the project. Southwest Tennessee Development District will administer the grant. Final contracts with the State should be completed by year-end, with Requests for Bids going out early in 2013.

Officers from the Brownsville Police Department and the Haywood County Sheriff’s Department who work in conjunction with the Multi-Jurisdictional Violent Crime and Gang Task Force were invited to attend a luncheon at the Jackson Country Club on October 30. The Multi-Jurisdictional Violent Crime and Gang Task Force consists of local, state and federal authorities who have joined together with a common goal of ending drug and gang related violence across six counties in West Tennessee, those being Haywood, Crockett, Gibson, Chester, Henderson and Madison. Garry Brown, District Attorney General for Haywood, Crockett and Gibson counties, along with Jerry Woodall, District Attorney General for Chester, Henderson and Madison counties, and Mark Gwyn, Director of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations, spoke

to guests about the importance of the newly developed task force, and the impact that they hope it has on violent crimes in those counties. To date, the task force has participated in two saturation raids in two different counties, each of those resulting in successful seizures of drugs and weapons and arrests. “More importantly,” said Woodall and Brown, “the message of cooperation was conveyed to those citizens in all of the communities that we are working together to address the issues of violent crime and gangs.” This is the first time in history that city officers, county deputies, state agents and federal agents have participated in a multijurisdictional approach to a continuing commitment to crack down on drug violence and gang activity.

Photo by Jennifer Willis The Brownsville-Haywood County Chamber Ambassadors attend events that promote Haywood County and the City of Brownsville, including ribbon cuttings, ground breaking ceremonies and open houses.

Waddell joins the States Graphic team

Have you ever wondered who the people are wearing red shirts in all of the ribbon cutting photos? They are the BrownsvilleHaywood County Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors, and they attend grand openings, ribbon cuttings, receptions, open houses and other events that promote Haywood County. The Ambassadors consists of a total of 25 members. Nominees for new ambassadors shall be a Chamber member in good standing, for not less that one year, and have an established business in Haywood County, or be an individual member in good standing. Ambassadors review all membership applications, and the names of those eligible are placed in a pool and the designated number needed for the enduring year are elected by the Ambassadors by paper balloting. Anyone who is considered but not

elected is advised to re-submit his or her name for the next year. Ambassadors are required to pay forty five dollars per year for annual dues, and that money is used for meals, travel and other expenses incurred by the Ambassador group. Any remaining money is placed into an Ambassador fund, which is used to remember those sick or deceased in the Ambassadors. Ambassadors are encouraged to attend all scheduled events, but are required to attend 45 percent of them in a six-month period. Any member who fails to follow the attendance requirements is given three months to make-up necessary requirements. Failure to do so results in removal from Ambassador status. The ambassadors are the “public relations arm of the Chamber.� They attend any activity that represents the Brownsville-Haywood County Chamber of Commerce, and are also available to greet guests at Chamber meetings.

A 2001 Dodge pick-up, driven by John Kirkpatrick, left the roadway after colliding with Cleland, and came to rest after hitting a utility pole. Photos by Jennifer Willis BY JENNIFER WILLIS jwillis@statesgraphic.com Emergency crews were dispatched to the intersection of Dupree and Berrywood Thursday, November 1, at approximately 7:55 a.m. for a traffic accident involving three cars. A 1999 Saturn, driven by Angela Cleland, was traveling north on Dupree behind a 2000 Honda, driven by Felicia Jeter. When Jeter stopped

to turn onto Berrywood, Cleland, who according to a report received from the Brownsville Police Department, was unable to safely stop behind Jeter due to excessive speed or following too closely. Cleland attempted to swing around and pass Jeter in the southbound lane. At that time, Cleland’s Saturn struck a 2001 Dodge pick-up, driven by John Kirkpatrick, headon that was traveling in

the southbound lane. The collision caused Cleland’s vehicle to spin around sideways in the roadway and collide with the rear end of Jeter’s vehicle. Kirkpatrick’s pick-up left the roadway and struck a highway sign as it traveled down the embankment before coming to rest after striking a utility pole. No injuries were reported, but traffic was shut down on Dupree for more than a half hour.

Off the Beaten Path with Jerry Wilson

Bothersome critters Bothersome critters are not in short supply these days. Bothersome may not be an adequate word to describe those small critters whose actions sometime far exceed mere irritation and annoyance. In fact, their actions may become very costly and dangerous. Our community certainly has its share of bothersome critters. I had an encounter with one of these species just recently. Sunday morning is a very busy time for me. After two church services, I usually have lunch with friends and get home around two o’clock in the afternoon. This gives me an opportunity to lay back and relax and catch some TV. It’s not at all uncommon for a nap to enter the picture. Sunday was no different. I had reached that time when the nap falls into play. All seemed to be going fine until I was awakened by what sounded like a gigantic explosion followed by lights out. I looked all around and was relieved to know that the house was still standing and no tornado warnings had been issued nor were there any severe weather warnings. After gaining composure, I gathered

with the neighbors out back. It was decided that we must have experienced transformer problems in one of the neighbor’s back yard. We made a call to the Brownsville Energy Authority. In just a few minutes, trucks, equipment, and workers were on the scene. In about an hour, we had our electricity back. My hat’s off to the BEA for such a fast and professional response time. A spokesman for the group attributed the damage to a squirrel. It appears that one of our backyard critters took a wrong exit and landed in the transformer. Another bothersome critter done gone. If memory serves me correctly, this same scenario popped up about five years ago. I believe that it was the same transformers. That’s when we all realized the increase among these four legged bothersome critters in our back yard. They seem to always make their presence known. Just a short while ago, I was on the patio one afternoon and heard a barrage of ping sounds coming from the roof of a shed in the neighbor’s backyard. My first thought was that some kids were playing in the back yard and throwing rocks

or something onto the roof. After doing some investigation, it was noted that a number of squirrels were in a pecan tree playing squirrel games and jumping from limb to limb. This activity caused the pecans to fall from the trees onto the roof causing a continuous annoying sound. Let it be known that I am not anti-squirrel. Sometimes, I enjoy their presence, but they seem to be taking their games too far. We had our mole problem and we took advantage of the community cat brigade. No more mole problems. We’ve had mosquito and insect problems. We called the pest control folks and the problem was taken care of. Who can we call to take care of our squirrel problem? Our cat patrol has been successful keeping them in the trees but that’s not nearly enough. Since I don’t expect the city to declare open season on the squirrel population, I’m convinced the utility company will eventually solve the problem with squirrel proof transformers. Until then, I’ll just be content taking the good along with those little bothersome critters.

I’m thankful for… (part 1) I have had a week to write down something that I am thankful for each day, and I have noticed a lot of other people writing what they are thankful for on Facebook. I chose to write mine and share them with you here, instead of there. I was going to wait until the week of Thanksgiving to share some of them with you, but I have had several people ask when I am going to share them, so I figured I would share some of them with you each week until then. So, I will start with Day 1: I am thankful for a God who loves me and accepts me for who I am, and forgives me for all of the mistakes that I have made. He is compassionate, giving and understanding. He may not always answer every prayer I pray, but I have faith that He has a plan for me, and He knows what is best whether I understand or not. Day 2: I am thankful for my children, Sarah Elizabeth and Jacob Owen. They are both beautiful, healthy, perfect gifts from God, and I thank Him everyday for

allowing me to be their mommy. Sarah spent the first three months of her life fighting to survive. The doctors told us her chances of survival were slim, since her tiny two pound body was so fragile and underdeveloped, but God had other plans. We prayed almost constantly, and slowly but surely she gained strength, and eight years later is absolutely perfect, and definitely a daddy’s girl. Jacob tried to come early, too, but the doctors were able to prevent it and he was born a healthy seven pounds and seven ounces. Most people don’t know Jacob’s story as well as they do Sarah’s, but my doctor told me for two weeks that they could not see a baby on ultrasound, and tried to convince me to have a D&C. I knew I was pregnant, and kept insisting that we wait, and sure enough, a few weeks later there he was, with a strong heartbeat. He is handsome, strong-willed and very bright, and the biggest mommy’s boy you’ll find. They are my heart, and I love them both so

much that sometimes I tear up just thinking about it. Day 3: I am thankful for my husband, Chuck, who has been by my side for thirteen years. He is my very best friend, and we have made so many memories together over the years. I love knowing that I get to spend the rest of my life with him, and will forever be grateful that he came into my life. He has seen me at my worst, and stood right beside me, and continues to love and support me through everything. I am one lucky woman, and believe me, I know it. Day 4: I am thankful for my parents, who have loved and supported me my entire life. They have been married for 32 years, and are a shining example of what parents should be. They are there for me whenever I need them, and no matter how old I get, I will always need them both. I hope they know that, and I hope they know I love them more than I can ever explain. To be continued next week…

Peeples

By 28th Judicial District Circuit Court Judge Clayburn Peeples

What’s in a Name — A Lot I’ve written two or three columns over the years on choosing baby names, usually giving the columns clever, original titles like, “What’s in a Name?”, and when I told my lovely young wife I was writing another, she reminded me I was plowing old ground. “But no,” I said. “I’m not. The popular names have all changed now.” And they have. Many of the hot new names a decade ago have become jaded and passe in today’s world, and prospective parents wishing to give their new son or daughter the perfect, unique name have to throw away all the old rules and suggestions and deal with a brand new set entirely. Or do they? What is in a name, anyway? Does it really matter? Can a person’s name help him or her succeed, professionally and socially, or worse, can it hold him or her back? You might ask Thomas Mapother IV or Susan Weaver what they think about names and success. What? You don’t recognize their names? Well, you may know them by those they now go by, Tom Cruise and Segourney Weaver. Would Frances Gumm have had the phenomenal success that came her way after MGM changed her name to Judy Garland? Would we have reacted to the smouldering screen persona of Betty Joan Perske if the screen credits hadn’t identified her as Lauren Bacall? We might have looked past their names, but when we are just meeting people, say researchers, their names affect our perceptions of them. Study after study has shown this. In one now famous study on teachers’ reactions to students names, an essay written by a student identified only as “David” was consistently graded higher than the identical essay allegedly written by a student named “Leon”, and it’s not just in subjective grading that kids with unpopular names are punished. They also do worse on standardized tests than kids with popular names. Why? Because our names affect our self concepts also, both directly and indirectly by the reactions people have to them. Certain names are considered desirable in our society, and others are not, and woe to the child who grows up with the wrong one. Just how much damage can the wrong name do? Well, it starts in grade school, both on

the playground and in the classroom. Kids with desirable names show considerably higher levels of adjustment than kids with undesirable names do, and they have more self respect. Furthermore, kids, especially boys, who grow up with unusual and uncommon names are more likely to be clinically depressed and to suffer personality disorders than others. Of course, it may be that their problems are not caused so much by their names as much as the fact that they were reared by parents who thought the names were a good idea. But, you may say, most people turn out O.K., regardless of what their names are. In the real world, people say, we judge others by their acts, not their names, and yes, we do, consciously, at least. Unconsciously, something else may be going on, something subtle, but nonetheless real. Employers, for example, are more likely to hire applicants whose names are easy to pronounce, and once hired, people whose names are easy to say get promoted faster and more often. Not fair, but true. All kinds of name effects are working in ways parents never imagined they would when they came up with them. People with African-American sounding names, for example, are less likely to be called back, even among African-American applicants, than those with traditional names. Children of all races with unpopular names are more likely to get into trouble with the law. Names are important. I mean, think about it.

Every word you use has a meaning for you, a definition that goes with it. So does every name. But if you’re not convinced that your child’s name can harm him or her professionally or academically, think about their social life, specifically their love life. They say nearly a third of all modern romantic relationships begin on the Internet these days, and the research into the effect people’s names have on their perceived attractiveness is startling. In one study of 12,000 online dating service users, researchers categorized each of their names as either “desirable” or “undesirable”, and look at what they found out. Those with unattractive names had less formal education than the other group, they were more likely to smoke and they had lower self-esteem. They also had fewer dates. The unattractive name bias is so bad that a majority of the 12,000 said they would actually rather remain single than to get involved with someone with a bad name. Sounds brutally unfair, and it is, but so is most of life. Your name has an influence, sometimes small, but sometimes huge, on the social environment in which you grow up, and that social environment, in turn, influences who you are and what you become. So to all you expectant moms and dads out there, congratulations, but be very careful what name you choose for that beautiful boy or girl. It just might be the first step on the path to their destiny. Make sure it’s a good one.

November 5, 1982 Democrats Prevail in Tuesday Voting The stream of Haywood Countians that visited the polls last Tuesday morning was reduced to a trickle by noontime and afternoon voting was rather spasmodic in all Haywood County precints. November 10, 1972 Haywood Voters Pick All But One State Wide Winner Approximately 5,200 Haywood County voters cast ballots in Tuesday’s presidential election and as a result of the tabulation, Haywood’s voters were in line with the majority of the state as Nixon and Clement were winners here with Senator Baker less than 100 votes behind Congressman. Ray Blanton, a West Tennessean who sought the Senate seat. November 9, 1962 Haywood Works Hard to Gain Tie with Ripley 13-13 The Haywood High Tomcats spotted their arch rivals, The Ripley Tigers, a 13 point lead in the first quarter last Friday night and then came on to eke out a 13 to 13 tie in a hard fought ball game.

On last Sunday, October 28, the Bluff Creek Church held its Relay for Life Kick-Off. The members of the church wore pink, representing October Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Several members of the congregation gave their survivors’ stories. Two things they shared: being a survivor and agreement that it was the Goodness of God’s Healing Powers, therefore they are living testimonies. We were also thankful to have Dr. Sonya Shipley and Dr. Garrick Clouden, with The First Care Medical Center here in Brownsville, to share in our services. We were ‘tickled pink’ about our cancer survivors and having doctors, but mostly that the Presence of the Lord was there.

Devotional Page

Thursday, November 8, 2012

Weekly Devotional It is absolutely shocking how often we are distracted from living in the gospel of Christ. Idolatry is at the root of so many of our problems living the Christian life. When we believe lies of the world, which say, “This will make you happy,” we are creating idols in our heart that never satisfy. Only Christ is the center and source of our joy, but we are so often sidetracked in thinking something else is needed in this life to give us fulfillment. Yet, these are just lies. They never satisfy. They never deliver on what they promise. It amounts to idolatry. When we think there is anything of this world that we must have in order to be happy, whole, or fulfilled, we have put another god before the Lord. Only He can give us true meaning. Only He can give us the fulfillment for which we long. “Son of man, these men have taken their idols into their hearts, and set the stumbling block of their iniquity before their faces.” Ezekiel 14:3 Jason Velotta - Christ Church

The Brownsville States-Graphic, Thursday, November 8, 2012 — Page A8

Hometown Hero Melvin Bond BY JENNIFER WILLIS jwillis@statesgraphic.com Melvin Bond, the sixth of eleven children born to the late Melvin Bond, Sr. and the late Louise Bond, has lived in Haywood County his entire life. The son of sharecroppers, Bond spent a lot of time when he was a child working in the fields with his parents. “Sometimes I missed school to help them work,” said Bond. “I even remember harvesting corn with a mule and wagon.” Bond attended grammar school in Haywood County, but attended high school in Lauderdale County. He was the only one of his ten brothers and sisters to graduate from Ripley High School. After graduating in 1970, Bond went on to Dyersburg State Community College, which had just opened. He was a member of the first group of students who ever attended DSCC, and took general education classes. “I was only able to attend for one year,” said Bond, “as I had to drop out to go to work.” Bond accepted a position with Universal Electric in Ripley, where he worked for the next three years. Afterwards, he accepted an apprenticeship in lithography at Ripley graphics. He spent the next 18 years working third shift as a professional printer, serving as head pressman and assistant plant supervisor. Bond decided to pursue a new career, as he was “tired of working on the inside” and had “burnt out” working in lithography. “My best friend was a state trooper who was assigned to Haywood County, and during a conversation with him he told me that a Stanton deputy had quit, and that I should apply at the sheriff’s department,” said Bond. Bond applied with the Haywood County Sheriff’s Department, and was hired as a Stanton deputy in March 1989. After completing his training at the Tennessee Law Enforcement Training Academy, he returned to Stanton until 1991 when he was reassigned. From 1991 until 1993, Bond worked as a county deputy who served warrants and answered calls. In 1993, he began working in narcotics, where he remained until 1996 when he was reassigned to criminal investigations. Bond worked as a criminal investigations deputy until 2002 when he made the decision to run for sheriff. Bond, who is now in his third term as Haywood County Sheriff, was first elected in August 2002, and first took office in September 2002. Bond has a full plate, and took some time to explain to me what a day in the life of a sheriff entails. Sheriff Bond is responsible for the deputies and the running of the jail, but there were

several aspects of his job that I was unaware of until our interview. For instance, he allows inmates to work in the community, mostly with the solid waste department, in an effort to help save taxpayers money. Inmates built the new awning at the Haywood County Animal Shelter, completed painting at Carver High and work at the recycling center. “If there is a need for a specific skill, like say a carpenter, and another facility has a carpenter, I will trade inmates with that facility so that we can get the work we need done finished,” said Bond. “I can call around to other sheriffs, and they will send me an inmate for a specific project, and in return I send them one of our inmates so that they can continue to receive their funding from the state.” I asked Sheriff Bond what it was like to run the jail, and he responded with, “I believe it is one of the largest liabilities in the county. Any infraction of an inmates rights fall under federal statutes, and I have to deal with that aspect and try to fulfill my obligations to protect the taxpayers to the best of my abilities.” Bond stated the best part about serving as sheriff is “being able to help others, solve crimes, participate in the community, attend neighborhood watch meetings and teach people how to better protect themselves.” The worst part is “seeing tragedy like wrecks, shootings, house fires and accidental deaths.” But the worst of all, according to Bond, is seeing a child who has been abused, whether it is physically or sexually, and trying to understand how a parent can choose their lifestyle over the welfare of their child. “There are parents who are absolutely unfit, and will choose their drugs over their children, and I will never understand that,” said Bond. “Our children are our most precious commodity, and we should all do everything that we can to protect them. I am human, and it deeply bothers me to be a part of something so tragic as removing a child from an unfit situation, but no matter how bad it is, I have laws to abide by and I have a job to do.” I asked Sheriff Bond what he considered his most important task, and he said it was without a doubt keeping his men and women properly trained. “They all do a great job patrolling and answering calls,” said Bond. “And it is imperative that they receive proper training to ensure their safety and the safety of others. A lot of that training requires travel, and with that comes the accrual of travel expenses, but it is extremely important they receive their training.” Sheriff Bond is very active in the community, serving on the board of

The Southern Foodways Alliance awards Helen Turner with the Ruth Fertel Keeper of the Flame award at the 2012 Southern Foodways symposium Each fall, the Southern Foodways Alliance (SFA), with support from the Fertel Foundation, honors an unsung hero or heroine, a foodways traditionbearer of note, with the Ruth Fertel Keeper of the Flame Award. The 2012 Ruth Fertel Keeper of the Flame Award went to Helen Turner, the pitmaster at Helenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bar-B-Q in Brownsville. The SFA pays homage to this individual by commissioning a documentary film. In this case, Helenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bar-B-Q, made by Joe York on behalf of the SFA, was shown to an audience of SFA symposium attendees this past Friday night and will be available on the SFAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, southernfoodways.org. The Southern Foodways Alliance also conducted

an oral history with Mrs. Turner in 2008; the transcript and an audio slideshow are available online. The daughter of a farmer father and a homemaker mother who raised ten children, Turner was born and raised in Brownsville, sixty miles northeast of Memphis. After she and her husband, Reginald, began a family, she initially stayed home with their children. But once they were in school, she was ready to go back to work. Turner began working in the barbecue business in the early 1980s and returned to the pits in 1996 after several years of factory work. That year, she took over ownership of a barbecue restaurant owned by Dewitt Foster and changed the name to Helenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bar-B-Q.

From her previous job in the restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kitchen, preparing barbecue sauce and side dishes, Turner learned her way around the pit. Since then, Turner has been cooking barbecue six days a week and serving it to scores of loyal customers from Brownsville and beyond. Turner is the undisputed pitmaster of Helenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s BarB-Q. Each day she cooks pork shoulders, ribs, bologna, and sausages over oak and hickory coals. She pulls and chops sandwiches to order and douses them with the customerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s choice of a hot or mild tomato-based sauce. The sandwiches are topped with homemade slaw and served alongside potato salad or beans, which Turner also prepares from scratch. Barbecue is a tough business for anyone, male or female. There is wood to chop, fires to stoke, and coals to shovel. When the smokeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plenty of it, billowing out of her screened-in pit roomâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;gets in her eyes, Turner doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let it stop her. She keeps cooking because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s satisfying work, and because she loves interacting with her customers. Black and white, male and female, they savor her food and respect her craftâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and so do we. The Ruth Fertel Keeper of the Flame Award is named for Ruth U. Fertel, founder of the Ruthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chris Steakhouse

Eight Tips to Stay Healthy this Flu Season Flu season is upon us, bringing with it new strains of the virus. So now is the time to brush up on all the flu-fighting facts. Here are eight wellness tips to help keep you and your family in tip-top shape – from what behaviors to avoid, to how homeopathic treatment can help: 1. Know your risk: Seniors, children under age 5 and pregnant women are at high-risk for developing complications from flu, as well as those with asthma, heart disease and weakened immune systems. Seek professional advice on your risk factors. 2. Wash your hands: Flu viruses are spread by droplets from infected people when they sneeze, blow their nose, or wipe secretions from their nose or eyes. Keep your hands out of your mouth, avoid rubbing your eyes and thoroughly wash your hands several times daily.

Avoid alcohol and chemical-based hand sanitizers, instead opting for soap and water or a natural, essential-oil based hand cleanser. 3. Eat wisely: Foods containing vitamins C and E are believed to support the immune system. So stock up on sunflower seeds, almonds, citrus fruits, broccoli and green peppers. Limit your intake of concentrated sugar found in soda and candy, as it impairs immune response. 4. Sleep tight: Lack of sleep may profoundly inhibit your immune system. A full night’s sleep will keep your body’s natural defenses at optimum efficiency. 5. Stay hydrated: Staying hydrated will lessen your chances of coming down with flu. When you’re under the weather, drink extra fluids to loosen mucus, keep your throat moist, and prevent dehy-

dration caused by fever. 6. Nip it in the bud, safely: Reduce the duration and severity of flu-like symptoms by listening to your body when you feel achy or run down. Don’t wait until you’re “sick enough” to act. If you’re concerned about side effects, drowsiness and drug interactions, opt for a natural homeopathic medicine like Oscillococcinum, which is clinically supported. It has no known side effects and is safe for everyone ages 2 and up, including seniors. Keeping something like this on hand can help you treat yourself sooner, allowing you to rest rather than trek to the store. “The key is to watch for symptoms and be prepared to act quickly with a complication-free treatment,” says Lawrence Rosen, MD in his newly published book “Treatment Alternatives for Children.” Read more natural tips from

his book at www.LawrenceRosenMD.com. 7. Exercise regularly: A recent study reported in the journal “Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise” found that modest exercise may prevent the elderly from getting colds and flu.

8. Seek help if you get worse: The flu can be potentially dangerous, leading to other infections like pneumonia. If your symptoms become significantly worse after the first three days of illness, especially if your fever subsides and then returns, seek medical

attention. More flu facts and health tips can be found at www. oscillo.com. Help yourself stay healthy this season through prevention and by treating symptoms before they get the best of you.

Making Snack Time Healthier Parents often struggle to get their children to forgo unhealthy snacks in favor of healthy options. With nearly a third of kids and teens overweight, childhood obesity is now a top health concern among parents in the United States, according to the American Heart Association. Healthy snacks are just as important for kids as healthy meals, as a nutritious lunch can easily be offset by the empty calo-

ries of junk food snacks. “At school, kids will be tempted with all sorts of unhealthy snacks while you’re not around,” says Edmond Sanctis, cofounder of Sahale Snacks, a producer of healthy, all-natural snack foods. “But once kids get into a healthier eating routine, they’ll take those habits with them wherever they go.” Even if your children scoff at carrot sticks and reach for the cookies in-

stead, there are simple ways to motivate them to snack better. Be a Role Model Eating habits start at a young age and are strongly influenced by parents. If you chow down on chips or candy in between meals, your child will learn to do the same. Eat healthy snacks in front of your kids. Clean the Pantry The easiest way to get your child to stop eating highly processed junk

food is to stop supplying it. Replace chips with natural snacks that are just as easy to grab on the go. Opt for snacks low in saturated fat and high in nutrition. For example, Sahale Crunchers are fruit and almond snacks that rely on nature and not artificial flavors for their taste. Stock up on a variety of flavors such as Almonds with Cherries, Apples + Maple and Almonds with Cranberries, Sesame Seeds + Honey so that even the

pickiest kids won’t miss junk food. Serving sizes are 140 calories or less, so they’ll be snacking better too. Get Creative Healthy snacks don’t have to be bland. Make healthy snacking more delicious by adding nuts or granola to yogurt to give it an added boost of protein, fiber, healthy monounsaturated fats, vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants. Or make veggies more appealing by pairing them

with dips like salsa and hummus. Don’t Give Up Your kids may complain at first, but stay strong. Once their taste buds get used to the new foods, they won’t miss the junk food at all. For more healthy snacking tips, visit www.sahalesnacks.com. With some direction and a little creativity, healthy snacking will become second nature to your child.

What Every Man Over 40 Should Ask His Doctor

Annual physicals may not be at the top of every man’s to-do list, but these visits are crucial for longevity -- especially for those men over 40. There’s no better time than your check-up to have all your looming health

questions answered. Make the most of your next visit by composing a checklist of things you’d like to talk about during your appointment. No matter how healthy you feel, there are some discussion points you’ll

definitely want to cover: Prostate Cancer Screening Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer in America, affecting one in six men, according to the Prostate Cancer Foundation. If you’re a

man over 40, there are several major risk factors that you need to know about. If you are African-American, or have a family history of prostate cancer, talk to your doctor about your prostate health, beginning at age 40. The older you are, the more likely you are to be diagnosed with this potentially life-threatening illness, but that doesn’t mean younger men are not also diagnosed. In fact, one in every 38 men aged 40 to 59 is diagnosed with prostate cancer. Talk to your doctor about when you should begin screenings and how you can lower your risk of diagnosis. Be proactive! Visit the Prostate Cancer Foundation website at www.PCF. org for more information on risk factors, and to access a list of prevention

tips. Your Heart’s Health According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, heart disease causes more than one in four deaths of men in the United States. To get an accurate gauge of your risk, be honest with your doctor. He or she can’t advise you properly if you don’t share all the facts on your habits -good and bad. Have your blood pressure and cholesterol tested at recommended intervals. Ask your doctor if your levels are normal and what you can do if they aren’t. If you don’t currently get regular physical activity, your doctor can advise you on safely easing into an exercise program. Diabetes Risk Many people have the misconception that if

something is wrong; their bodies will let them know. But diabetes often begins without symptoms. Your risk factor for developing diabetes goes up if you are overweight, have high blood pressure, or a family history of the disease. Ask your doctor if you need to be screened. In the meantime, lower your risk for diabetes by maintaining a healthy weight. Your doctor is a great resource for helping you form an effective weight management plan. It’s vital for men to manage their risks for lifethreatening diseases like prostate cancer, and one of the best ways to do that is with regular visits to the doctor. If it’s been over a year since your last appointment, call today to schedule a visit.

Simple Changes Can Boost Your Health Feeling a little off? Regardless of your age or fitness level, there are steps you can take every day to feel and perform your best. “Many Americans ignore their pain and fatigue,” says Dr. Keith Overland, president of the American Chiropractic Association (ACA). “But just like world-class athletes who constantly search for ways to optimize their game, we can do better. Start with simple changes that promote greater health and wellness. You’ll feel better now and avoid

bigger problems down the line.” With this in mind, ACA encourages Americans to “Find Your Game” by taking simple steps to promote optimal functioning: • Get moving: Americans are more sedentary today than in the past. Lack of exercise can atrophy muscles and contribute to obesity, arthritis and other problems. You don’t have to train like an Olympian, just aim for a minimum of 20 to 30 minutes of exercise three to four days a week. • Stretch daily: Improv-

ing flexibility is crucial to avoiding injury. Make a habit of stretching your major muscle groups each morning. • Don’t work through pain: The earlier an injury is treated, the sooner healing can begin. Masking injuries with painkillers to get back into action before you’re healed could worsen your original injury and lead to a chronic condition. Treat the cause of pain, not the symptom. Chiropractic physicians can treat many injuries and enable healing to occur -- without drugs or surgery.

• Outfit your feet: Think function when shopping for shoes used for exercise and walking long distances. The wrong shoes or worn-out shoes can cause pain throughout the body. A doctor of chiropractic can help you determine your arch type, match it to your gait and advise you on the best footwear. • Eat right: Even a few simple changes in diet can have a positive impact on your health. Limit red meat and excessive quantities of sugar and salt. Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, nuts and whole grains. Con-

sider consulting a health care professional to determine what supplements are right for you. • Recharge: If you feel fatigued often, get more sleep. Instead of revitalizing with soft drinks or coffee, try a glass of pomegranate juice and a brisk walk. Have your B12 and iron levels checked at least once a year for deficiencies. Lean meats, nuts, legumes and green leafy vegetables can help put some pep in your step. • Get the right stuff: From baby slings to tele-

phones, small consumer choices can have a big impact on your well-being. Shop for products designed with the comfort of your neck and back in mind. If your job is causing you pain, talk to your employer about replacing your equipment with ergonomic models. For more health tips, or to find a chiropractic physician near you, visit www. ChiroHealthy.com. There’s no need to live on life’s sidelines. With a few key changes, you can feel and perform your best.

Backpack Program a great success

Photos submitted by HCS Each week Haywood High students help pack over 130 bags of food and load them for delivery to students at Anderson, Haywood Elementary and East Side schools to take home on Fridays for the weekend. The Backpack food club began two years ago as a way to help youngsters who may not have enough to eat over the weekend. Each week, food is ordered and delivered to HHS from E. W. James by the Coordinated School Health Program. On Thursdays students come toward the end of the school day to help “pack the bags.” The food tubs are loaded into cars and taken to the elementary schools to be delivered on Fridays. “It’s a great way for students to learn about helping others and a great way for families with young children to get a little extra help these days,” Coordinated School Health Coordinator Cindy Smith said. Donations are welcome! The average weekly cost for the food for 136 children is $525.00. Donations may be turned in to Michelle Tillman at HHS or Cindy Smith at the Haywood County Schools Central Office. For more information about the program, call Mrs. Smith at 772-9613.

Family and Consumer Science Students learn about parenting

Mrs. Denita Jarratt and Mrs. Sarah Haynes’ Family and Consumer Sciences classes recently conducted the Egg Baby Project. The purpose of this activity was for the stu-

dent's to better understand what is involved in the dayto-day care of an infant. To accomplish this, the students became the “parent” of an egg baby (or sometimes

babies). For the set four-day period, it was their responsibility to see that their baby received the proper care and attention and that it remained healthy (unbroken) for the en-

tire time. Their responsibilities included more than simply carrying around an egg! They decorated a hard-boiled egg, provided a baby carrier and

Photos submitted by HCS kept a time schedule for their baby. The goal was for the students to understand that parenting is an enormous responsibility.

HHS HOSA students learn at the Memphis Zoo’s Education Classroom

Photos submitted by HCS HHS Health Science teachers Julie Taylor and Kristin Carlton took their HOSA students to the Memphis Zoo on Friday, October 26, for an outstanding learning experience. The class was held at the Memphis Zoo Education classroom.

According to Mrs. Taylor, the class was on rat anatomy. The focus was on mammalian organ systems within the abdominal and thoracic body cavities. By participating in this dissection class, students were able to identify structures and discussion similarities

and differences between human anatomy and the specimen. This class met many of the state science standards. “It was a very positive experience, and one we will make an annual fall experience,” Mrs. Taylor said.

Brown sprints to 35th at state meet

Photos by David Claybrooks Deonte Brown and Union City's Daniel Williamson catch their breath after Friday's state cross country meet.

Deonte Brown finished 35th out of 189 runners at Friday's state cross country meet.

Haywood junior Deonte Brown didn't really know what to expect at Friday's Class A-AA State Cross Country Meet in Nashville. “I'm just going to do the best I can,” Brown, who'd never advanced to state, said a week before the event. When it was all said and done, he'd done much better than a lot of people expected. Brown completed the windswept 3.1-mile Percy Warner Park Steeplechase Course in 18:39.54, which put him 35th among 189 runners. Just five runners from West Tennessee finished ahead of him. He moved into the top 60 around the two-mile mark and passed several runners down the stretch. “I could hear coach (David Claybrooks) yelling and cheering me on as I was finishing the race,” Brown said. “I was passing people left and right. It was crazy. I just kept telling myself to finish the race strong.” Hundreds of fans and coaches were lined up outside of the ropes near the finish line. Claybrooks was among them. “I started yelling at the top of my lungs because it was me versus everyone else from other schools that had several supporters for their athletes,” Claybrooks said. “You could see him picking up his speed and starting to pass people one by one. As he got near me with 400 meters to go, I just kept yelling, 'Dig, dig, use your arms, finish

strong, you can do this.' Deonte just kept turning over his legs passing other runners.” Brown was the first Haywood cross country runner since 2007 to qualify for state. Claybrooks said he's pretty sure Brown's top 35 finish was the best in school history. “I lost track of him with 100 meters to go, because the crowd at the finish line was so deep,” Claybrooks said. “I knew his aunt and uncle were cheering him on at the finish line.” Claybrooks, who is in his second year as Haywood's cross country and track coach, said he had a three-year plan to start qualifying more studentathletes for state. “I've been here 15 months, and I'd say we're ahead of schedule,” Claybrooks said. Several Haywood track athletes qualified for state last spring. “I feel like we've accom-

ning of the race. We we’re very aware that schools in the Chattanooga, Knoxville and Johnson City areas were going to push the pace early to cause other runners to not run well the last mile of the race.” Brown: “At the beginning of the race, I was feeling good because I knew coach and I had put together a great strategy for the race and I was worried about everyone taking out fast at the beginning of the race”. Second mile Claybrooks: “As the top six runners in the race continue to battle it out for the lead, there were a lot of movements being made from 10-80th place.

Just like in September when Deonte ran in the Jr. Ward Tennessee Classic, he started to make his move around the two-mile marker. He told me Friday afternoon as we were running the course together that he wanted to make his move at the two mile maker. You could see other kids from other schools starting to struggle a little bit, so it was a perfect time for him to make that move. Deonte moved into the top 60 and was starting to make several moves.” Brown: “The goal at the two-mile maker was to start making my move for the last 1.1 miles of the race. I was passing a lot of people and was using this

as momentum for the end of the race.” Third mile/finish Claybrooks: “Once the athletes made the turn, there were 700 meters to go to the finish line. The top six runners were spread out a little bit with the top three runners fighting it out to see who would be named Class A-AA boys state individual champ. Deonte was continuing to make moves throughout the last mile of the race, passing other runners from other schools. With 400 meters to go, Deonte was starting to sprint as he heard his head coach encouraging him every step of the way.”

plished what we needed to do in 15 months instead of three years. Its different than when I came here. I think the kids are looking forward to the season now.” “I've worked very hard this cross country season,” Brown said. “I’ve also had a coach who is very supportive and done a lot of great things for us cross country and track and field athletes at Haywood. I’m glad to have him as my coach.” Claybrooks and Brown gave the following mileby-mile account of the race: First mile Claybrooks: “As the lead pack was coming through the first mile maker, the top six runners in the race were setting a record pace despite the wind that picked up before the race. Deonte decided to tuck in behind Union City twotime Region 7 Class A-AA Champ Daniel Williamson. Deonte was sitting in the top 75 looking very comfortable in the early stage of the race. The goal for Deonte was not to go out too fast in the begin-

Haywood football: 2012 in review By JEFF IRELAND jireland@statesgraphic.com To the casual fan, a 3-7 record may not seem that noteworthy. But upon closer inspection, Haywood's threewin 2012 football season was, relative to last year, a successful one that bodes well for the future. Consider that during last year's 1-9 campaign, Haywood lost by a combined 323 points, losing by 30 or more points eight times. This year, although they lost seven times, the Tomcats outscored their opponents by 13 points and lost four games by a touchdown or less. Haywood led Milan, a team that won eight games and will play in round two of the state playoffs tomorrow, by 21 points in the third quarter of the season finale before losing 35-28. A win there probably would have gotten the Tomcats in the playoffs. “The kids and I talked about it,” said secondyear head coach Slade Calhoun. “We've got to start finishing games. We

had some leads … You take the turnovers away, and we could've been 9-1, 8-2 … realistically 7-3. I feel like we should have been in the playoffs.” Several Tomcats had big seasons on offense. Sophomore quarterback Bryce Young threw for 2,286 yards and 16 touchdowns. Senior Justice Brown led the team with 1,048 yards and 14 scores. Young's top target, junior Martez Comage, racked up 974 receiving yards and eight touchdowns. In addition to Young and Comage, several key players return next year. Coming back for 2012 will be junior receiver Equavious Barbee and four of five starting offensive linemen, including sophomore Zadarious Taylor, junior Shavius Hines and junior Cameron Taylor. Devonte Briley, another junior who plays receiver and linebacker, will also be back. Considering the Haywood freshman and middle school teams were very successful this sea-

Photo by Jeff Ireland son, Haywood figures to be loaded next year. Calhoun installed his fast-paced spread offense last season. It took a while to get going, but once things started clicking this season, it proved to be difficult to handle for a lot of opponents this season. Haywood scored 324

points (32.4 a game) this season and racked up 4338 total yards (433.8 game). Calhoun fine-tuned the offense all year and plans on doing the same next year. “We know what plays we do well now,” Calhoun said. “Next year we're going to have less plays, but

go faster. The speed of light. Just fast. We had a lot more plays at the beginning of the season than we finished with.” With so many returning players and an influx of talent from the middle school and freshman teams, Calhoun believes the team's depth will be

better in 2013. “We're going to make attempts to platoon guys next year,” Calhoun said. “I think we've got the numbers. When you can do that, that's when you improve dramatically.”

Sugar Creek

Senior Living Community News

By DeDe

Just as I started our last week’s column, I will start this weeks. Welcome Home Pete Boyd, just not to our earthly home but to his Heavenly home. God called him home Tuesday evening. He will be missed by many, especially his four beautiful daughters. Pete was so easy going that even when he felt bad he would still joke with all of us. Old Boy, you were a special person to each of us here at Sugar Creek. You were loved more than you ever knew. Thank you God for allowing us to be a part of his family even if for only a short time. Our deepest sympathies go to Grace Mulligan in the loss of her son. Grace is one special lady. Never have we seen her down, even when she is sick, she is still singing God’s praises. We know her heart is heavy, but she is still walking with a smile on her face. Please keep her in your prayers as we know she is sad, but refuses to

let it get her down. Sugar Creek loves you Grace Mulligan. We are so happy to have Katherine Hooper home; she went to visit family on the East coast and was there during the Superstorm. I think she was as happy to get back here as we were to get her home safely. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the victims and their families of Hurricane Sandy. Jessie Howell got to see Sonny Jackson sing for the first time. He has been coming here for a good while, but she just has never seen or heard him. Well she was really impressed and he even sang a song just for her. We love to hear him sing it just makes us all happy and want to dance. It was such beautiful weather on Friday so 10 of our residents and staff went to Jackson. They visited the pumpkin patch and then ate lunch at Catfish Cabin.

Jack and Margaret Ann Fletcher, Charlotte Jones, Jottye Newman, Arline Boisvert, Irlene Clement, Dora Robison, Jessie Howell, Jennifer Martin and Eutropia Hawkins all enjoyed a great day. Thank You Clyde from Southwest Transportation for driving safely and keeping them laughing the whole way. They enjoyed you and hope you drive them again. Flu season is here, so please remember we do love your visits, but if you have any of the following symptoms come back when you are feeling better (Headache, sneezing, fever, coughing, nausea/ vomiting, diarrhea, or body aches). Washing your hands with soap and water is the best way to prevent transmitting germs. Protect yourself and get vaccinated with the flu and pneumonia vaccine. Have a great week everyone.

Hillville - Eurekaton News By Vicki Williams Congratulations to Lorie Bruce Waddell on her new position at the Brownsville States Graphic. We wish you the best in this new chapter of your life’s journey. 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. Some of the Mt. Pleasant UMC congregation will be traveling to Ripley on Saturday, November 10, to the New Life UMC for a singing and fish fry. I wasn’t able to attend the benefit for Jena Qualls Antwine on Saturday, November 3 but was told there was a great turnout for this event. Thanks to all who helped make this a successful event. I have to brag on the boys in my Sunday School Class. During the month of October, Orion Sensabaugh, Michael Williams, Cameron Williams and Trevor Williams were in attendance for class each Sunday and each brought a bible to class. Mrs. Billie Kirkland

and her children, Roger Kirkland, Sandy Campbell, Barbara Hayes and their families enjoyed a fun filled day at Mrs. Billie’s house on Saturday continuing a family tradition of cooking the late Eugene Kirkland’s famous stew. A special Happy Birthday wish to my nephew Tyler Watson who will turn 15 on Saturday, November 10th. Birthday celebrations this week include Shelby Littlejohn, Trevor Williams, Marie Dowdy, Randall Phillips, Jennifer Williams, Lee Cannon, Joshua Maddox and Chasity Williams. Our prayer list includes; B. K. Kelly, Otis and Bonnie Jean Elrod, Alan Warren, Mildred Shumaker, Billie Jo Leath, Bobby Cannon, Prentice Elrod, Roscoe Martin, Frank Fergie, Perry Ann McCloud, Doug Jones, Ceree Canada, Jennie Benard, Luther and Edna Austin, Gary Koch, Anneli Myers, Enid Powell, Fletcher Lewis, Shirley Morgan, The Military, The Nation and the Community. Sympathy to the families of Mr. Pete Boyd, Mrs.

Mavis Brooks, Mr. William Dycus, Mr. Wayne Pittman and Mrs. Kathy Bank in the loss of their loved ones. In closing, “Faith is not about having a perfect life but about knowing our perfect God”. This is our Thought for the Week by Dan Johnson of Florida as published in the Upper Room Devotional. Who is your hero of faith? Dan’s hero of faith grew up in a Christian home, the daughter of a pastor. Her faith formed her moral and spiritual life through high school and college. She married a Christian man and had two children. One day while driving home from work she was hit by a driver who ran a red light. She suffered traumatic brain injury and was in a coma. After months of therapy she now spends most of her life in a wheel chair. She is Dan’s daughter, Shevon and her favorite saying is “Faith makes things possible, not easy.” May each of us strive to be a hero for others. If you have news to share, please call me at 7721885, after 5:00 p.m. Until next week....God bless.

Wellwood/Zion News By Denise Phillips It was great to have Brother Mark and Dottie back at Zion Sunday morning. They had a great time in Dallas, but I think they missed us. Brother Mark used Psalm 11 and various other Scripture passages to remind us of the risk of remaining silent. He focused on Christians Still Having a Voice! We missed Lisa Conway who had driven daughter, Sarah, to the airport. She flew in Wednesday to be with the family to comfort each other on the first anniversary of Brother Mark’s death. Please continue to pray for comfort in the days ahead! Jimmy and I didn’t make it back Sunday night since we took our grandson Jacob home and traveled on to Bolivar to visit with my brother Tommy and Judy Elrod. We discovered he had spent the night in the hospital and is seeing a heart specialist in Memphis Tuesday. Please pray for him because he is so hardheaded! About thirty youth from Zion attended the Judgment House at Warren Community Church Wednesday night. They also enjoyed about fourteen pizzas

during the trip. Everyone had a magnificent time! Congratulations are in order to three of Zion’s youth. Blake Porch was named Mr. HHS. Elizabeth Campbell was named, “Teacher’s Pet” in Senior Superlative and Sara Lewis was named, “Most likely to be remembered.” I just can’t believe they are SENIORS! Thanks to Brother Butch from Harmony for the report concerning the men’s community prayer breakfast Thursday. He led the devotion and there were eight present. Sorry to hear that Rex Barnes was sick. If anyone would like to join this faithful prayer group, they meet Thursday mornings at 6:00 at ZBC . Several ladies from the community attended the Chonda Pierce Concert in Jackson Thursday night. Cathe Butler from Zion Church was involved in a traffic accident on the way and suffered a broken ankle. She is home now and in much pain, so please continue to pray for her. Friday night Jimmy and I traveled to Jackson and bought gas for $2.95 per gallon. Chris Austin is in New York with SEMC and posted on Facebook that gas was $5.06 per gallon there. Please pray

for the victims and their families who suffered from the devastating Hurricane Sandy and for all the workers sent there to help with rebuilding. While we were visiting with granddaughter, Lillie, for her birthday party Saturday, Randall and Whitney Elrod took mama (Alice Elrod) out to eat and on to the fundraiser for Jena Antwine at Harmony Church. She had a wonderful time and so did we! Don’t forget the marriage retreat November 9th – 11th.

Holly Grove News By Martha H. Jones “People Who Excel Know What’s Important” was the subject of the message. Believers in the churches must work together to accomplish and fulfill the command from God to go into all the world with the gospel. The things that divide are insignificant compared to that which unites us. The Apostle Paul sought out faithful people to assist him. Getting the gospel out requires all believers participating. The gospel is in the story of Christ’s crucifixion, burial and resurrection to provide salvation for everyone, but we must confess our sin and trust in Jesus as Savior and Lord Church membership, being a good person or doing good deeds fall far short of God’s requirement. Prior to the services, Emily Manchester was baptized, and a baby and parents dedication was held with Chase and Charlene Lovell and their little son, Hunter, and Paul and Melinda Manchester with their little son Thomas taking part. Ike Aslin sang, “Your Grace Still Amazes Me” for special music. Ike served 3 years as a pastor of a church in Montana.

He and his family are now living in Bells. Happy Birthday to Lisa Paris, Phil Emison, Sara Long, Ricky Hopper, Lynn Kerr, Preston Perry and Vada Lewis. Happy anniversary to Keith and Dianne Warren. We express our sincere sympathy to the daughters Linda, Barbara, Beverly and Donna and their families and to the sisters Barbara and Betty of Mr. Bland (Pete) Boyd. Bland was the third classmate in the class of ’51 to pass away since our last reunion in 2011. He was the one who led in the promoting of it. Bennie Morrison, a fellow classmate delivered the eulogy, and friends Jack Fletcher and Allen King and two of Bland’s daughter’s, Donna and Beverly shared memories of their friend and father. My first job after finishing high school was working as secretary at Boyd Coal Co and Brownsville Trucking Co for Mr. Pete Boyd, Bland’s father. He was a wonderful boss. Bland will be dearly missed. Let’s not neglect to pray for the sick. The list includes Jan Wynn and Dorsey Watridge in a Jackson Hospital,

Betty Doyle, Bobby Perry, Virginia Taylor, Mark Stephens, Viola Brown and Sharon Davis. Others are Betty Barden, Mary Ann Ballard, Jimmy Grammer, Justin Climer and Lorene Qualls. Also include Louise Coleman, Butch Wilson, Lucin English, Louise Autry and Ray and Janie Hight. We also express our sympathy to Marjorie Williams and her family in the death of her sister-in-law, Mrs. Ouita Holt. Ouita was second in line for a liver transplant. Mission groups met on Wednesday night at the church. The WMU filled 28 boxes for Operation Christmas Child. Others in the church will also fill boxes. This is a very worthy cause, sponsored by Samaritan’s Purse and Brother Franklin Graham. “Loyalty Day,” a special day at Holly Grove Church, will be next Sunday, Nov. 11th with Brother Slade Johnson, a former pastor, bringing the morning message. Tim Fain will be directing the music. Following the morning services, there will be a buffet meal in the family life center. You are welcome to come join us for the morning services and the meal to follow.

UT Ex Extxtetension Choosing and Planting the Right Tree By Walter Battle Trees and shrubs enhance the aesthetic, environmental and economic value of your property, and fall is the ideal time to add them to your landscape. Dr. Wayne Clatterbuck, a forestry specialist with University of Tennessee Extension, offers these tips for successfully adding trees to your landscape: * Select the right tree for the right purpose. If you’re looking for shade, the tree should be large and sturdy. If you want aesthetics, the tree should feature a graceful form and showy foliage or flowers. To attract wildlife, berry or mast-producing trees/ shrubs are useful. A wide variety of species and sizes are usually available at local nurseries. Choose the one that best fits your purpose. * Avoid fast-growing, weak-wooded species such as silver maple, Bradford pear, lombardy poplar,

Leyland cypress or Siberian elm. These and other species have proven to be problems in Tennessee or species susceptible to disease and insects. * Select the right tree for the available space. Avoid planting large forest and shade tree species in areas with limited space for root or crown growth (next to structures, under power lines, near sewer or water lines, driveways and sidewalks). Many species become very large. If planted in a confined area, the tree may become a future problem. If space is limited, select a smaller tree species. * Select the right tree for the environmental conditions. Many species require full sunlight and well-drained soils and will not survive in shady or wet sites. Match the species requirements with the site conditions. * Plant at the right time. Trees should be planted when they are dormant

and not actively growing. Avoid planting during the growing season or when soils are frozen. The best planting months are November-March. Avoid planting on excessively hot, cold, or windy days. * Plant your tree right. Take the extra time to dig a planting hole that will be large enough to accommodate all the roots and to allow them to grow and expand. Use the natural soil to fill the planting hole. Do not add soil amendments or fertilizer. * Give your new tree a helping hand. Water twice a week to maintain soil in a moist condition, but do not overwater. Mulch the area around newly planted shade trees, but do not allow the mulch to touch the tree. Mulch helps to control weeds, conserves moisture, adds nutrients as mulch breaks down and protects trees from lawnmowers and string trimmers.

Beyond The Lights We here at Haywood County EMS have many types of calls that we respond to on a daily basis and the topic for this week is one of the most frequently seen. Since November is Diabetes Awareness Month, today we will discuss this frequently seen disease process. According to the American Diabetes Association, 18.8 million children and adults in the United States have been diagnosed with diabetes with another 7 million undiagnosed. There are also 79 million Americans that have what is known as Prediabetes. In 2007, diabetes contributed to a total of 231,404 deaths in the United States. Some of the many complications that can arise from diabetes are heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, blindness, kidney disease, nervous system disease, and amputation of limbs. Adults with diabetes have heart disease death rates about 2 – 4 times higher and the risk for stroke is also 2 – 4 time higher than adults without diabetes. Diabetes is the leading cause of new cases of blindness in adults aged 20 – 74 years of age. In 2008, 48,374 people with diabetes had begun treatment for end stage kidney disease and 202,290 were living on dialysis treatments or with kidney transplants. 60% - 70% of diabetics have some form of nervous system damage and in 2006, 65,700 nontraumatic lower limb amputations were performed on people with diabetes. All of this information sounds frightening but the important thing to remember is that it can all be avoided. Let’s discuss the types of diabetes because identification and management is the key to living a healthy life with diabetes. Let’s start with the least common form of diabetes and that is Type 1 or what was previously known as Juvenile Diabetes. Type 1 is usually diagnosed in children and young adults and is a condition where the body does not

produce insulin. Insulin is a hormone produced in the body that is needed to convert sugar, starches, and other food into energy needed for daily life. Only 5% of people with diabetes have this form of the disease. With help of insulin therapy and other treatments, even young children with Type 1 Diabetes can learn to manage their condition and live long, healthy, happy lives. Next is Prediabetes. Before people develop Type 2 Diabetes, they almost always have Prediabetes blood glucose levels that are higher than normal but are not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. Recent research has shown that some long term damage to the body, especially the heart and circulatory system, may already be occurring during Prediabetes. The good thing is there are things that you can do to prevent or delay the development of Type 2 Diabetes. We will discuss those later. Next is Type 2 Diabetes. Type 2 Diabetes is the most prevalent form of diabetes. Millions of Americans have been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and millions more are unaware that they have it or are at a high risk. According to research, some people groups have a higher risk for developing Type 2 Diabetes than others. Type 2 Diabetes is more common in African Americans, Latinos, NativeAmericans, Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, other Pacific Islanders, as well as the aged population. In Type 2 Diabetes the body does not produce enough insulin or the cells ignore the insulin. Insulin is necessary for the body to produce energy. When you eat food, the body breaks down all of the sugars and starches into glucose, which is the basic fuel for the cells of the body. Insulin takes the sugar from the blood into the cells. When glucose builds up in the blood instead of going into cells, it can lead to diabetes complications. I know that this has been a lot of information

but everyone needs to know the risks of diabetes so that they can protect themselves. Diabetes is a common disease, yet every individual needs unique care. We encourage people with diabetes and their families to learn as much as possible about the latest medical therapies and approaches, as well as healthy lifestyle choices. New research is leading the way toward better therapies and improved quality of life for many people with diabetes. Medication can be an important part of your treatment plan as prescribed by your physician team. Do you need insulin or other medications? This can only be answered by your physician analyzing your symptoms or complications, your blood glucose levels, and other risk factors. Today, more and more people are using different dietary supplements. The National Health Interview Survey found that 22% of people with diabetes use some type of herbal therapy, while another study found that 31% used dietary supplements. If you’re one of the many people taking dietary supplements, you’re probably concerned about doing the right thing for your body and disease process. Finding reliable information about the benefits and safety of these products is difficult. There are hundreds of dietary supplements – each purporting their own health benefits and unfortunately, the US does not have a system for testing the effectiveness of supplements. Before you choose to take any supplement, speak with your healthcare team and get their opinions. We hope that this has been helpful. All information on here was sourced at the American Diabetes Association’s website. For more information we encourage you to look deeper and speak with a healthcare professional. As always, be safe and call 911 for emergencies only.

Rick (shown 4th from right) travels the U.S. teaching his “silent command” system.

Five tips for women to deal with everyday aches and pains As a woman, you most likely experience aches and pains from your daily activities no matter what your lifestyle entails. In fact, a recent study shows 89 percent of women experience some type of muscle or joint pain every year, and 63 percent experience it weekly, according to ProAct, an independent marketing research firm. But whether the discomfort stems from a day at work, strenuous exercise or housework, pain has its price -- from feeling tired and low on energy, to contributing to feelings of stress, depression and frustration. Before discomfort gets the better of you, reduce your risk for pain and

relieve the aches you already have with these simple measures: • Avoid overexertion: Don’t save all your heavyduty chores for one weekend, especially if you’re not regularly active. “If you suddenly spend the whole day cleaning out your basement, or climbing ladders to clear gutters, muscle strain or overexertion is highly likely,” says family physician Elena Klimenko, M.D. “You have to let muscles build up gradually.” The same goes for working out. Consult a physician or fitness professional to build an exercise routine safely. • Relax: Hot baths, gentle stretching and medi-

tation can help prevent and relieve stress-related muscle tension and stiffness. Even if it means putting the kids to bed early or turning your phone off for an hour, incorporate stress-free down time into your busy day, every day. • Relieve: Next time you experience pain, avoid popping conventional painkillers that masks symptoms. “A homeopathic medicine works with your body to relieve not only pain, but also swelling, which is a common reason for pain,” says Dr. Klimenko. “It does so without the risk of drug interactions or complications, even if combined with pharmaceuticals.” For example, Dr. Kli-

menko recommends Arnicare Gel from Boiron, an over-the-counter gel that can be applied anywhere on the body to reduce muscle pain and stiffness, swelling from injuries, and bruises. Because it relies on a natural active ingredient, you can safely use it as a first line therapy to relieve pain. More information can be found at www.Arnicare.com. • Maintain a healthy weight: Excess weight puts undue stress on joints. Try a diet that pro-

motes joint and tissue heath. Eat foods high in Omega-3 fatty acids like salmon. Add flaxseeds to salads or try cooking with mustard seed, ginger, turmeric or cayenne pepper, all of which have anti-inflammatory properties. • Take breaks from computer work: ProAct’s research shows that women’s aches and pains stem more from daily activities like sitting at a computer too long than from injuries. Be sure to take periodic walking breaks or sit

on a ball to keep muscles activated. While modern life has created challenges that lead to aches and pains, Dr. Klimenko says women don’t need to grin and bear it. “You can take proper care of yourself to avoid pain and treat aches naturally before they get out of hand.” For more natural health tips, follow Dr. Klimenko’s blog at www.DrElenaKlimenko.com.

Tips to help winterize your windows - Use a heavy-duty, clear plastic sheet on a frame or tape clear plastic film to the inside of your window frames to reduce drafts. - Install tight-fitting, insulating window shades on windows that feel drafty after weatherizing. - Close your curtains and shades at night to protect against cold drafts; open them during the day to let in warming sunlight.
