TBI charges Haywood County man with murder Floyd Hall, III charged with first-degree murder The Tennessee Bureau of Investigations charged a Haywood County man with murdering another man near Brownsville over the weekend. Floyd Hall, III, 53, of Brownsville, was charged Tuesday, November 5, with one count of firstdegree murder for the stabbing death of 50-year-old Noisy Gene Coble of Bells. A passerby discovered Coble’s body slumped over the steering wheel of his 2000 Ford Expedition on a field access road off of Key Corner Road at approximately 8:30 am on November 2. The Haywood County Sheriff’s Department

responded and discovered Coble dead from multiple stab wounds. Investigators determined that Hall stabbed Coble to death inside the vehicle. TBI and The Haywood County Sheriff’s Department are continuing to collect evidence in the case, and are trying to determine the relationship between Hall and the victim. Hall was booked in the Haywood County Jail without bond. He is scheduled to appear in court on November 19. Check back with the Brownsville States Graphic for more on this developing story in the next few weeks.

Four-car accident on I-40 results in one fatality

Brownsville States Graphic/Megan Davis BY JENNIFER WILLIS A four-car accident that occurred at the 63 eastbound mile-marker of I-40 during the late evening hours of Thursday, October 31 left one man dead. According to a report

from the Tennessee Highway Patrol, 2006 Freightliner semi, driven by 49-year-old Nadejda Scarlevschi, was traveling eastbound on I-40. A 2006 Volvo semi carrying concrete pipe, driven by 26-year-old Seyful Iskandarovich

Lomidze, of Jacksonville, FL, rear ended the semi driven by Scarlevschi, causing it to go into a clockwise spin and flip into the emergency lane against the guardrail, and come to a rest facing west. Lomidze’s Volvo jackknifed, and his trailer

blocked both lanes of I-40. A third semi, a 2012 International, driven by 63-year-old William Parker of Bartlett, struck the trailer crossing the interstate. Parker’s semi went into a clockwise spin, flipped, and came to rest off the south edge of the roadway.

A 1997 Honda, driven by 21-year-old Rachelle Fjeldahl, of Trenton, ran through the crash debris and came to a controlled stop in the emergency lane. Twenty-six-year-old Lomidze died as a result of his injuries. Parker was injured, and all other

involved parties were uninjured. Interstate 40 was shut down through Friday morning and traffic was diverted to exit 60 as crews worked to clean up the wreckage, as well the hazardous materials spilt as a result of the accident.

Brownsville to receive $500,000 CDBG grant BY JENNIFER WILLIS According to a press release from Governor Bill Haslam and Tennessee Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty, more than $27 million in Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) were approved to assist Tennessee communities

with infrastructure, health and safety projects, and downtown improvements. “ C o m m u n i t y Development Block Grants helps communities complete projects that lay the groundwork for future economic development opportunities,” said Haslam. “I am pleased the state can partner with and assist our local communities with these

improvements as we continue our work to make Tennessee the number one location in the Southeast for high quality jobs.” “Community development is essential in growing the economy and creating a business-friendly environment,” said Hagerty. “These grants allow communities to take steps that will ultimately encourage incumbent

businesses to expand and future companies to relocate and invest in Tennessee.” The CDBG program is administered in Tennessee by the Department of Economic and Community Development. The City of Brownsville has been approved for a $500,000 CDBG Grant for sewer system improvements. The city

also received a $25,000 façade program grant for downtown and main street improvements. The additional grant money can be used for new awnings and signs, painting, building repairs, or other upgrades. The Tennessee Department of Economic and C o m m u n i t y Development’s

mission is to develop strategies which help make Tennessee the number one location in the Southeast for quality jobs, and the department seeks to attract new corporate investments in Tennessee.

Thursday, November 7, 2013

Weekly Devotional Do you remember the WWJD bracelets? They stood for “What would Jesus do?” The WWJD slogan became a mantra for all of life. In any situation or circumstance, we are to ask, “What would Jesus do?” Of course, this is a great idea since Jesus never sinned and is the perfect model of obedience to the Father. However, the problem is that most people think Jesus was a weak little pacifist, who never made waves and tolerated every man’s wickedness. It is true that all those who were broken, sinful, and repentant were showered with Jesus’ love, compassion, and forgiveness. Yet, there was a group of people that Jesus never accepted. In fact, Jesus called them a “brood of vipers” in Matthew 12:34; 23:33, “fools” in Matthew 23:17, “hypocrites” in Matthew 23:13-19, “blind” in Matthew15:12-14, and “children of the devil” in John 8:44. These were people claiming to be religious, but also making a practice of loving their sin. They looked right. They sounded right. They had all the right answers to the theological questions, yet their hearts were far from God. Am I saying we should be walking around calling people “vipers,” and “children of the devil?” Not necessarily. I am saying that we should make sure we don’t fit into this category. “Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith” – 2 Co. 13:5 Jason Velotta - Christ Church

Off the Beaten Path with Jerry Wilson

Life changing moments This weekend brought an end to a special relationship in my life that dates back to the early 1960s with the death of Nell Johnson. My first contact with the family came when I decided to change my employment. I moved from the role of a day worker on the farm to work at a local factory. Although I dearly loved farm life, very little possibilities, if any, for advancement opportunities existed for me as a farm hand. With this assurance, I made the decision to place an application in the only two factories in town. I was called a few weeks later for an interview and got a job at Kleer-vu Plastics in Brownsville. I was scared to death riding to work that first day but I was also very excited and thankful to have such a job. My salary at the new job was more than twice the amount at my previous job. And not only that, my hours decreased from about 60 hours to 40 hours per week. I knew some of my fellow employees and came to know

several others and all were nice and helpful but I do remember one of the supervisors in particular that seemed to take me under his wing. His name was Jim Johnson. We hit it off for reasons that I can’t put a finger on but I am so thankful that we did. I was barely out of my teens and green as a gourd and most definitely a tender vine. Having grown up without a father figure, Jim seemed to pick up that role and to this day, I have never forgotten his instruction and teaching by both word and deed. He also helped me out of some w o r r i s o m e situations. I had been there only a few months when it was announced that some layoffs might be on the way. The only thing I could think of was being without a job that I was quickly growing accustom to. I mentioned this to Jim and he gave me some great advice that I’ve never forgotten to this very day. He told me not to worry about it. “Learn your job,” he said, “and I’ll

check into it.” I was there for six years or more and never experienced a layoff. I learned from Jim that if you do your job well, give it all you can and put forth an honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay, you’ll do just fine. Guess what? He was right on. The first time I met Mrs. Nell was at a company party. I was standing outside with some fellow employees when this long, flashy Cadillac pulled into the parking lot. The bell boy opened the passenger door and out stepped this beautiful young lady who had class and sophistication written all over her. She was truly a southern belle. I could hardly wait to see whether or not I knew her husband or her companion for the evening. The driver parked the car and made his way toward the entrance. As he drew near, I noted that he was dressed in a beautiful blue threepiece suit. As he came closer, I realized that it was my new found friend and mentor who could hold his own with the very best.

A new addition It’s been two weeks, but the Willis’ have added a new family member, Gunnar. He is a now 12-week-old German Shepherd puppy, and we love him already! The kids have been begging for a while, and I wasn’t sure, plus we were moving at the time when they really started begging. But, a couple weeks ago, after a little encouragement from a friend, I gave in. We left for Mississippi two W e d n e s d a y afternoons ago to pick up our new addition. The kids picked out his name the night before, so we already had that part figured out. Sarah wanted to give him a German name. Needless to say, we are completely in love with him! He’s a puppy, so he is of course a little rowdy, but he is already learning some basic commands. Chuck and Sarah thought it would be cool to teach him his commands in German, so that’s

what we’re working on. Jacob also thought it was cool because “that is what police dogs learn.” He gets a little lonely when we have to leave him home alone for a bit, but in the evenings his favorite thing to do is curl up at the end of the recliner in front of the fireplace and take a long nap. The kids are teaching him how to fetch a tennis ball and bring it back, and it tickles them that he eats acorns every time we take him outside. Between Sarah and Jacob, Gunnar is going to be a big spoiled rotten baby! (And I had A B S O L U T E LY nothing to do with it!) Other than all of the excitement over the new puppy, we have been really busy trying to keep the leaves and limbs picked up in the yard. Thus far, it seems to be a losing battle. Sarah wants us to leave them in the yard because she thinks all of the different colors make it look pretty, and

Jacob wants us to rake them all up so he can run and jump into the pile and strow them all through the yard again. We have also begun to pick up pecans. TONS of pecans. And there are TONS more coming! The tree branches are heavy with them, and we have picked up about 1,500 already between the six trees. Looks like I need to learn some new recipes that call for pecans. I really want to learn how to candy them, but we will have to stop eating them as we shell them, or there will be none left to candy! I wish we had an old pecan sheller like my father-in-law did, but I am doing it the hard way... one at a time. But, it is fun to teach the kids how to do it that way. They think it is fun anyway! Now if I could find someone to share some purple hull peas, I could teach them what it is like to shell those! (Not to mention we’d have a really good meal!)

Say Cheese!

I was in a group of people being photographed the other night, and the photographer singled me out for not smiling. “This won’t do,” she said, pointing to me “You’ve got to do better than that. Smile!” So I did, sort of. Some people have a natural, camera-ready smile, but most of us, me included, do not. Try as I might, when I mug for the camera my smile almost always turns out forced and unnatural. A lot of people have that problem; how many times have you heard someone say, “I just can’t take a good picture,” and many, if not most, people do look better in real life than they do in photos, no matter how artfully done. Most people think you can’t look good in a photo unless you’re smiling. Know anyone who’s posted a non-smiling photo of themselves on Facebook? But if you think about it, smiling is not a natural act. I’ll bet you’re not smiling right now, as you read this, but if someone held a camera in front of you, like everyone else, you’d try to light up your face with a smile. If the photographer takes too long to frame the shot, however, there’s a problem. Suddenly our smiles turn into forced grimaces. The almost automatic, voluntary “smile” flies away, leaving something far less attractive in its place. That’s because a natural smile is like a blush; it’s a reaction, not a state of being. Photographers haven’t always demanded smiles. Remember those photos of your greatgrandparents and their families? How many were smiling? My grandfather was briefly a photographer right after the turn of the last century, and out of more than 200 people he photographed, only one was smiling, a young man who was actually clowning around in front of the camera. The photos of him don’t look authentic. It’s like some modern college student has donned old clothes for a nostalgia photo at one of those tourist-trapold-time-photo-studios. We presume that people didn’t smile in photos back then because exposure time was so long that they couldn’t hold smiles long enough to keep their photos from being blurred, and there could

be some truth to that. The first photographs had extremely long exposures, often several minutes. Matthew Brady, the Civil War photographer, presumably had state-ofthe-art equipment at the time, but was still forced to use exposure times about a full minute in bright sunlight. Indoor shots took much longer. Another reason may well have been that people just didn’t smile much back then. Indeed, they had little to smile about. A huge proportion of adults had a child, or children, who had died before the age of five, and life was brutish and hard for all but the fabulously wealthy. Even wealth and fame didn’t protect your children from premature death. Eighteen of our presidents lost children to death in their infancy, three of them had children who died while they lived in the White House. Any wonder people didn’t smile much. And then there was the question of dental care. There was usually none, especially cosmetic dentistry. Brown or missing teeth were extremely common. Hiding your smile under such conditions would be the most natural thing in the world. But there was something even beyond that going on, and that was that smiling people were considered to be undistinguished and common throughout most of modern history. Even before the age of photographs, portrait painters almost never painted smiles on their subjects. Look at the paintings of the kings and queens of Europe

or those of our early presidents. Not a smiler among them. Think about Abraham Lincoln. During his political life he was often criticized for not being serious enough, in part because of his frequently expressed sense of humor. He regularly evoked hoops of laughter from those in his company by telling them jokes, often offcolor, but in virtually every formal photograph taken of him he wears the gravest expression imaginable. That’s why we think of him that way. Smiling, up until the 20th Century, was not regarded as a physical sign of friendliness and warmth, and paintings and photographs were rare and often considered to be oncein-a-lifetime events, records for posterity. They had permanence, and no one wanted to be immortalized with a look of foolishness his or her face. Showing the teeth was, for the upper classes, a moreor-less formal breach of etiquette. Common people did that. So no one smiled for photographs until the advent and rise of film. A combination of photo technology and the changing culture then turned our favor to smiles, at least for most of us. We no longer have to worry about our grandchildren remembering how we look from only one or two faded family portraits. Today people are snapping pictures everywhere you go, and most of us are pretty much hardwired to smile whenever they do. Because we’re all so much happier than we used to be. Right? Prove it. Say cheese.

November Landscaping and Gardening Tips By Walter Battle Frost is on the pumpkins, but gardening season isn't over yet. Jason Reeves, horticulturist and curator at the University of Tennessee Gardens, Jackson, says “gardeners still have plenty of tasks during autumn.” Reeves offers these tips to help us keep our landscape and garden in top shape: Shrubs and Trees November is an ideal time to plant or transplant trees, shrubs and fruit crops. Be sure to water thoroughly, then mulch newly planted plants with a good 3- to 4-inch layer of mulch. Newly planted evergreens should be checked regularly during the winter to ensure they are getting enough water. Mulch existing trees and shrubs to reduce weeds, provide insulation from freezing temperatures and

conserve moisture. Perennials, Annuals and Bulbs Reduce peony botrytis blight and hollyhock rust by removing and disposing of all leaves and stems this fall. Roses should have all their leaves raked from beneath to prevent black spot. Dispose of plant materials in the trash, not the compost pile. This will reduce the carryover of disease during the winter and you will have less trouble next year. Cut chrysanthemum and other perennials’ stems close to the ground once they have begun to die back. Leave ornamental grasses to provide winter interest until spring. You can continue to transplant perennials throughout the fall and winter unless they are marginally hardly in your zone. Those marginal plants are best planted in spring. Now

is also an ideal time to plant spring-flowering bulbs. Consider planting some of the minor bulbs such as winter aconite, glory of the snow, species tulips, crocus, narcissus and grape hyacinths. Winter annuals such as pansies, violas, Dianthus chinensis, red mustard, snapdragons, ornamental cabbage and kale can still be planted - the earlier in the month, the better. Mulch flower beds with 2 to 3 inches of good compost or fine mulch to keep soil temperature stable and prevent winter plant injury from frost heaving. As the compost or fine mulch decomposes, it will enrich your garden soil as well. Lawn Care It's not too late to fertilize your cool-season fescue lawn. Use a turf fertilizer and follow label directions. This encourages good root development and helps

improve the color of the lawn. Keep heavy layers of leaves raked from the lawn. They should be composted. Another option is to mow over a light layer of leaves, turning them into mulch, which adds important nutrients back to the lawn. November is the month for the first herbicide application for wild garlic and wild onion. Ask your county UT Extension office for information on herbicides and rates of application. Fruits and Veggies As soon as leaves fall from fruit trees and berry plants, spray for the first time with a dormant horticultural oil. This helps control overwintering insects and disease. Apply according to label instructions. Incorporate compost in the annual and vegetable gardens for next growing season.

Review Club holds October meeting Members of the Eighth Review Club made their way through a panorama of fall colors to the lovely country home of Jean Williams for their October meeting. Co-hostesses Susan Smith and Elaine McCool served a decadently delicious chocolate silk pie. A short business meeting followed. President Kay Gibbs spoke words of praise in memory of Joyce Hale, a recently deceased member

of the club, who is to be memorialized by the club with the donation of a book to her church library. Peggy Korn, who has renewed her active status as a club member, was warmly welcomed back by Kay and all in attendance. Chaplain Patsy Connerly reminded us, on the evening of our annual fund-raising effort and as the season of giving approaches, that we cannot outgive God who promises

that He sees and rewards a generous heart – “Give and it shall be given unto you . . .” The Club voted to fund an organizational membership to the Brownsville-Haywood County Chamber of Commerce. The meeting was closed with the saying of the Club Collect as members began to eye a table overflowing with goodies to be awarded to the highest bidder.

Jams, relishes, cakes and a decorative cake plate, pies, candies, sugared pecans,casseroles, rolls, biscuits, loaf bread, farm-raised eggs, fall decorations, Christmas ornaments and more, were bid upon with enthusiasm. Nearly $600 was raised to be spent on worthy local projects. The next meeting will be a Christmas Brunch to be held Saturday, December 7 in the home of Helen Stark

Education Haywood County Board of Education by Superintendent Teresa Russell

Just what are Common Core State Standards? Over the next several weeks, I will be sharing information surrounding the Common Core State Standards. There is a lot of conversation nationally and even locally about just what Common Core is all about. I hope to be able to clarify and give you a better understanding of these new standards. Let me begin by saying that Haywood County Schools fully embraces the implementation of the Common Core

State Standards (CCSS). For many years, we as educators have pushed for a break from multiple choice, rotememory teaching and testing. As experts in the field of education, we realized the need to allow for more problem-solving and more application level instruction. The CCSS is just that. It is a set of English/ Language Arts and Math standards that will allow for higher level expectations of student learning and

performance. While the transition to CCSS may be an expensive and challenging endeavor, there is no price too high for preparing our students to meet the demands of their futures- whether that is college, career or military preparation. The shift to CCSS began many years ago when groups of various stakeholders lead efforts for educational reforms across the states. After many studies and reports, it


Thursday, November 7, 2013 was determined that a number of states, including Tennessee, were basing instruction on less than rigorous standards and many students graduating across the nation where not prepared for life after high school. In other words, a high school diploma does not necessarily equate to the demands of adult life. I do not believe that our time has been wasted with the Tennessee Diploma Project Standards (the standards prior to CCSS), but I would argue that we were not adequately preparing all students for the demands post graduation. Thus comes my full support of the Common Core State Standards. How can we argue against standards that allow for more student engagement, deeper and richer understanding of concepts, more critical thinking and problem solving, more evidence based reading and

writing, along with many other positive changes reflected in the CCSS. We must not confuse the standards with curriculum and we need not get caught up in the “national standards” controversy. What we need to focus on is our students and our teachers and how we can best prepare them as we move forward with the full implementation of CCSS. I believe that the new standards will allow for much more flexibility and creativity within the classrooms, not to mention the wealth of resources available to our teachers. Teachers across the country will be able to collaborate and share resources since most teachers will be following a common set of standards. Students who move across state lines will be able to pick up and move right along with the same standards. This does not mean

every student in every state will be doing exactly the same thing every day. What it does mean is that I can expect my child in rural west Tennessee to be taught and assessed at the same level as a student in a suburban district in North Carolina, or any other state under CCSS. This is important because the reality is that our students will be competing for entrance into the workforce, colleges and the military with students from all over the nation and even the world, and we want them to have every possible advantage. In the following weeks, we will examine more closely the details of the Common Core State Standards. Please follow along each week and feel free to contact me with any questions. I am excited about the changes we are facing and look forward to engaging our students in the work ahead.

Brownsville States Graphic/Rita Hathcock H a y w o o d Elementary School held the first awards program of this school year on November 1. Students were recognized for their academic achievements, attendance and strength of Character.

The Rotary Club presented a bicycle to a student who had perfect attendance, and the Brownsville Police Department added a helmet to emphasize the importance of bike safety to our students. First State Bank representatives

were present to tell the students about Kidz Klub. This is a program to encourage students to realize that academic success pays off in a big way. For every “A” or “3” on their report cards, $1.00 is deposited into the students’ Kitty

Cash account. Mrs. Jennifer Sloan recognized two students from each grade level who best exhibited the Character trait for this nine weeks – Respectfulness. Each teacher nominated the student who best

portrayed this trait in her classroom. The Family Resource Center holds Happy Hour after each awards program and invites families to come in and check out materials for their students to use at home. Mrs. Susan

students about their equipment and fire safety. The students got an up close look at a fire truck and the equipment used when fighting a fire. On Tuesday, Steve Henderson, a Tennessee wildlife officer, explained about his job and Tennessee Wildlife. He brought several animal pelts for the students to examine and the students have a better understanding of how important the job of being a wildlife officer is. On Wednesday, Officer Josh Masters and another officer, talked about the job of a policeman, showed their police cars and the students walked across the back seat of the police car. On Thursday Anderson students did math games with parents in conjunction with Anderson Slumber/ Number Math Night.

Tomcats back in the playoffs By JEFF IRELAND jireland@statesgraphic. com Two of the standout players for Haywood this year, quarterback Wil Austin and defensive end Emmit Gooden, were in the fifth grade. Tomcat running back Bryce Young was in the sixth grade. The year was 2008 and that was the last time Haywood made the state playoffs. That year’s team, which was coached by Bart Stowe, who is now at Dyersburg, went 9-3 and lost to Mitchell in the second round. Haywood went a combined 12-28 over the next four seasons. Tomorrow night in Memphis against Trezevant in the first round of the Class 4A state playoffs, that less than memorable streak ends. “We’re ready to go,” said first-year head coach Ernie Jackson. “We’ve had some great practices. It’s a new season. Everything is fresh.” Haywoods’ first foray into the playoffs in five years will present a difficult task. Trezevant has lost just one game this year and brings a lot of weapons to the table.

Junior running Jamal Jones has over 1,000 yards rushing this season and Jordan Spencer, also a junior, has thrown for over 600. “I’ve been watching film on them,” Jackson said. “They’re very fast. The defense takes care of its responsibilities. They’re just a good team.” Haywood will counter with its own onetwo offensive punch that features Austin, a sophomore, and Young, a junior. Austin has thrown for over 1,100 yards and Young has run for more than 1,100. The receiving corps is led by Denarius Toliver and Equavious Barbee, who had two touchdown catches last week. Haywood’s defense has been strong of late behind the the play of several key players, including Gooden and Keyshawn Brummett. Whatever happens tomorrow night in Memphis, the 2013 Tomcats will be remembered as a program that got things headed in the right direction. “These seniors have laid the foundation for success,” Jackson said. “I feel blessed to be the coach here .. We’re excited to be here. We want to make the most of our opportunity.”

What: Haywood (6-4) vs. Trezevant (9-1) in first round of Class 4A state playoffs When: Friday at 7 p.m. Where: Memphis Fairgrounds Players to watch: Haywood – RB Bryce Young, QB Wil Austin, DE Emmit Gooden, WR Equavious Barbee; Trezevant – QB Jordan Spencer, RB Jamal Jones, WR Gabriel Scott, LB Nicholas Clay Story lines: This is Haywood’s first trip to the playoffs in five years … Trezevant lost in the Class 4A quarterfinals last year to Covington and advanced to the title game three years ago … Both teams own impressive regular season wins. Haywood handed Dyersburg, the state’s fourthranked Class 4A team, its only loss. Trezevant defeated Southwind, a Class 6A team with seven wins … Trezevant is ranked ninth in the latest Class 4A state poll.

Brownsville States-Graphic/Jeff Ireland Haywood quarterback Wil Austin looks for an open man during the regular season finale Friday night at home against Jackson North Side. Austin threw for 120 yards and ran for 96 more, but the Tomcats lost, 17-14.

Tomcat senior Equavious Barbee breaks a 54yard touchdown during action against Jackson North Side on Friday in Brownsville. Barbee scored both of Haywood’s touchdowns.

Late drive propels North Side past Haywood By JEFF IRELAND jireland@statesgraphic. com Haywood had Jackson North Side, a team that advanced to the state semifinals a year ago, on the ropes Friday night at home in the regular season finale. The Tomcats defense gave up two scores early in the game, but had been dominant the rest of the way. With 1:25 left in the game, North Side had the ball on its own 15 and trailed 14-10. But a pair of unsportsmanlike penalties, plus a personal foul, helped the Indians drive the length of the field and punch in the winning touchdown with 19 ticks left on the clock. Bryce Young returned the ensuing kick off to the JNS 48, but time ran out on the Tomcats and they took a disheartening 17-14 loss.

“We all make mistakes,” said Haywood head coach Ernie Jackson. “I made some mistakes and the guys have got to be more focused.” Despite the loss, Haywood (6-4 overall, 2-3 District 15-AA) earned a playoff spot for the first time in five years. The Tomcats are seeded eighth in the Class 4A fourth quadrant and will take on top-seeded Trezevant on Friday at 7 p.m. at the Memphis Fairgrounds. Haywood led 14-10 at the half. Willie Wilson recovered a JNS (8-2, 3-2) fumble midway through the third quarter to stop one Indian drive. With 2:37 left in the third, the Haywood defense stopped JNS on a fourth and one from the Haywood three-yard line to keep the lead. North Side’s next three drives ended on downs. Keyshawn Brummett came up with a sack on

Brownsville States-Graphic/Jeff Ireland Shavius Hines, center, and Emmit Gooden put some pressure on North Side quarterback Martavious Love during action Friday night in Brownsville. the fourth drive to give Haywood the ball at midfield with 2:27 left. A punt by Wil Austin pinned JNS deep and preceded the Indians’ improbable final drive. Martavious Love scored from the one-yard line for the game winner.

Trailing 10-0, Haywood got on the board with 7:34 left in first half when Austin hit Equavious Barbee in the end zone for a 27-yard TD on fourth and seven. After a JNS punt, Austin broke a 33-yard run. Two plays later he

hit Barbee again, this one for a 54-yard touchdown and a 14-10 lead with 1:29 left in the first half. Austin completed 5 of 16 passes for 120 yards and two scores. He also ran 13 times for 96 yards. Barbee had two catches for 81 yards.

Even though the game did not end well for the Tomcats, Jackson said he was pleased by his team’s performance against a strong North Side team. “I was very encouraged,” he said. “We’ve just got to rectify a few things.”

Expectations will be high for Haywood Basketball preview: Tomcats return all five starters from 24-win team Team: Haywood Tomcats Head coach: Kendall Dancy (3rd season) Last year: 24-9, advanced to Region 7-AA semifinals Returning starters: 5 By JEFF IRELAND jireland@statesgraphic. com Haywood was one of the hottest basketball teams in West Tennessee during the final weeks of the 2012-13 season. The Tomcats won 11 straight games, claimed the District 15-AA tournament title and made it all the way to the Region 7-AA semifinals. Jackson South Side, the state’s third-ranked team, ended the Tomcats’ season there, just one win away from a sectional berth. The team’s top three scorers from last year – senior Sadarius Delk (13 points per game) and juniors Kyler Douglas (13) and Jordan Varnado (11) – are back, as are several other key contributors. Three seniors graduated last year, including Montravious Maclin, who was a key

player off the bench and a post presence. Kendall Dancy is entering his third year as head coach. Two seasons ago his lineup was full of freshmen and sophomores. Now it’s full of juniors and seniors. Dancy is fully aware that expectations will be high for this team this year. “These guys should be stronger and tougher with another year of experience under their belt,” Dancy said. “And I’ve got another year of experience too … But you’ve got to take it one game at a time. You can’t look ahead. It’s a long season. You just want to get consistently better as the season goes along.” Delk, Douglas and Varnado each have a unique skill set. Delk operates primarily in the paint. Douglas is a left-handed slasher and Varnado is a good 3-point shooter who can also do some damage in the paint. Senior Jeff Starks can be deadly from long range and, like most of his teammates, can also get to the basket. During a recent

practice, Delk, who is about 5-7, dunked with two hands. At the request of his coach, Douglas drove the lane and dunked with his right hand, then did the same with his left. “All these guys have been working hard,” Dancy said. “They’ve been getting stronger.” Patrick Cephus, a senior, and junior Jalen Benton figure to see a lot of minutes at point guard again this year. Junior Alandis Delk can score in bunches. Detarion Boyd, another junior, came on strong late in the season last year and is expected to contribute more this year. Senior Xavier Delk is a versatile player who does a little bit of everything. Dancy has coached most of the players on his roster since junior high school. “At this point, we all know what to expect from each other,” Dancy said. “Losing in the region semifinals last year left a bad taste in everybody’s mouth … The main goal is to hit your peak late in the season.”

Tomcat Madness is Friday Tomcat Madness, an annual event held to kick off the Haywood High School basketball season, will be held Friday at 6 p.m. at the Doc Crowder Memorial Gym.

“We’re inviting everybody out this year’s programs,” said Haywood boys coach Kendall Dancy. “It’s a great chance to meet your favorite Tomcat.”

The junior varsity and varsity teams for Haywood’s boys and girls, as well as the freshmen, cheerleaders and mascot, will be on hand for the event.

Wellwood/Zion News

By Denise Phillips I’m sure that many Haywood County folks remembered the Conway family on Halloween. Rachel Stewart sang, “Run with the Angels” Sunday morning at Zion in memory of her dad and to comfort all who have lost loved ones recently. She did a great job just as she does as pianist every Sunday! “One Thing” was the title of Brother Bobby’s sermon Sunday morning at Zion. You must encounter Jesus (blind man- John 9:2425), worship Jesus (Mary and Martha-Luke 10:4142), and serve Jesus (Paul-Philippians 3:13-14 and David-Psalm 27:4)! He used several other Scriptures, but he closed with John 3:16. Praise God, we can all have an encounter with Jesus! Although attendance was down Sunday night at Zion, the message was clear! God is a fear removing God! Using several Scripture passages, the focus was Exodus 14:13-14. Several words of testimony were shared during the worship. Congratulations to Mary Hopper on her new job as Brother Bobby’s administrative assistant. She will work parttime out of the newly

renovated church office at Zion. Kim SchwarzSmith has resigned, so a huge thanks to her for a job well-done. Our son Justin and his family came over Monday for a belated birthday supper for Jimmy and Britany. October is full of birthdays in our family and we have a hard time getting them all in, but when we do we have fun! Jimmy and I traveled to Dancyville Thursday to wish our granddaughter Lillie a happy birthday and share in a tea with her new tea set. She’s another one that will celebrate at a later date. Ten men attended the prayer breakfast Thursday morning with Harmony’s Pastor Grover Westover leading the devotion. This group meets each Thursday at 6:00 at ZBC and all men are invited to join these prayer warriors! Thanks to Brother Butch for the weekly report. Janet and Sarabeth Tinsley, Norma Austin, Jessica, Allison, and Sydney Witherspoon, Paige, Kelsey, and Finley Meeks traveled to Jackson to visit with Nell Austin (mother / grandmother / great-grandmother) at Maple Wood for Halloween. They helped pass out candy to kids

who came by for visits. We were delighted to have my brother Tommy and Judy Elrod spend the night with us Friday. Tommy spent three nights in the hospital with heart complications, but he was much better. We traveled to Kappi’s in Humboldt to eat and then visited with Justin and his family. Alice Elrod (mama) had another great grandchild added to our family. Luke Oneal Elrod came Friday night weighing in at seven pounds. Proud parents are Randall and Whitney, and Charles and Barbara are very proud grandparents. Congratulations to all of you! Don’t forget! Zion’s Boxes for Operation Christmas Child are due November 17th and Harvest Day at Zion will be celebrated November 24th with one worship service at 11 am. Continue praying for sick folks and their families, military personnel and families, shut-ins, those mourning loss, and the leaders of our country. Call me at 772-4257 or email me at phillipsd6@ if you have news. People want to know!

By Sylessie Ross Our weekend was packed with busy church activities. Our male chorus celebrated their anniversary with a two day celebration. Both days were exceptional. On last Sunday we celebrated our Men’s day with Deacon James Morgan & Deacon Larry Chatman as our morning speakers. They both did a outstanding job.

Rosie Mae Bond; “St. Louis,Mo; William Gaines, Leesburg,Fl. Thought For The Week: “Too valuable to waste” Consider what a truly great day you have today. Think of all the magnificent possibilities that are yours right now. You can fill the next hour with sixty minutes of focused, purposeful, effective effort. You

can bring new and meaningful value to your work, your home, your family, your community and your dreams. On this day you can learn, experience, work, feel, love and play. You can make creative use of whatever you have to move in the direction of whatever you desire. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination. So let yourself imagine something wonderful, and then enjoy the wonderful experience of making it happen. Though it might seem easier and more comfortable to just do nothing, that’s really not the case. If you waste the great possibilities of this day, you will very soon come to regret it. So avoid that regret and jump into action. Today is much too valuable to waste.

Holly Grove News By Martha H. Jones “The Miraculous Salvation of God” was the subject of the message. God’s son, Jesus, was sent to provide salvation for you and me and all the world. He cleanses us from sin and saves when we trust Him as Savior and Lord. Our priority as Christians is to get the gospel out. As the Titanic was beginning to sink, a preacher on board began running throughout the ship asking persons if they had been saved and telling them how. The time came when everyone had to jump ship or go down with it. The preacher, having a life jacket, saw a man clinging to a board. He asked if the man was

saved. He said, “no.” After giving him his jacket, he told him how to be saved. The preacher lost his life, but the man who lived told of his being the last converter of the preacher. Vickie Simpson Bonawitiz thrilled us as she sang special music accompanied by her son, Brent, on the guitar. Anna Haynes, Ryan Sensabough, and Larry Johnson made professions of faith Sunday night, and were welcomed into the fellowship of the church. Congratulations to Whitney O’Neal Elrod and her husband, Randall, on the birth of their son, Luke O’Neal

Elrod. The proud grandparents are Ernest and Joy O’Neal. Happy birthday to Lisa Paris, Amanda Tindle, Phil Emison, Sara Long, Jason Burk, Lynn Kerr, Preston Perry, and Rebecca Lewis. Brother Fred Campbell, his son Aaron Campbell, and his daughter, Christy Fain, and Pam Stephens returned last week from a mission trip to Japan. They felt the trembling of an earthquake while there, and saw the great destruction caused by the tsunami and earthquake that hit there. Twenty four youth from Holly Grove Church, accompanied by Brother Ralph Brown, Joey and

Christy Garrison, and Katie Hopper drove to Warren Community Church in Somerville Wednesday night and toured the “Judgment House-Home Invasion.” It presents salvation and lostness in a powerful drama. Missions night was held last Wednesday night. The WMU filled 30 boxes for Operation Christmas Child, which is a part of the Samaritan Purse led by Franklin Graham. Others are filling boxes. These are collected over the US for children of other countries. They



Thursday, November 7, 2013 place a pamphlet in the top of each box that tells the children, in their language, about Jesus and how to be saved. The mid-south goal is 600,000 boxes. The Brotherhood viewed a DVD of a missionary captured in Iran and what he went throught before being released. Dewey Jones led the program. Let’s not neglect to remember the sick in our prayers. We rejoice with Roy Lewis and Roxanne Cox in the good reports they received. Mary Ann Ballard is doing well following surgery.

Remember these along with Betty Barden, Debbie Jones, Lynn Coburn, Fletcher Lewis, and Ronny Vanstory. Others are Kathy Clenney, Judy Hart, Bobby Perry, Tommy Lomax, Mark Stephens, Melanie Jones, Jimmy Grammar, Sandra Posey, and Charlie Rowland. “Loyalty Day” will be observed next Sunday with Dr. John Adams as the guest speaker. Following the morning service, everyone will gather in the family life center for a buffett meal. We welcome visitors for the service and meal.

Around Town By Marty Williams Need a fur baby fix? Give a stray at home! 772-2908! A huge round of applause goes to Bob Ford for receiving two Outstanding Service awards from the US Fish and Wildlife Service, in Atlanta. Bob is the husband of Martha Lyle and son-in-law of Libba and Judge Lyle Reid! You make us proud, Bob! Joe and Susan Sills’ latest travels took them on a leaf-peeping tour through parts of four states in four days. First, Reelfoot Lake, which also revealed some wildlife surprises with White pelicans, Bald Eagles, and the first flight of ducks and Snow geese. Next came CaveIn-Rock State Park, in Southeast Illinois. That is where the famous Ohio River pirate scene with Jimmy Stewart, in the 1962 movie ‘How the West Was Won’ was filmed. They also visited the ‘Garden of the Gods’ in the Shawnee National Forest. Giant City State Park, near Carbondale, Illinois was next with the golden hues of sugar maples, hickories and beech trees producing a wonderland of leafy magic, among the giant sandstone boulders. Then historic Kaskaskia Island and St. Genevieve, Missouri, the oldest Northern European town west of the Mississippi settled by the French in the late

Reneé Moss This week our Chamber Spotlight is on Helen’s BarB-Q, located at 1016 North Washington Avenue. Helen Turner is the daughter of a farmer father and a homemaker mother who raised ten children. She was born and raised in Brownsville. 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. Helen 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 Helen’s Bar-B-Q. From her previous job in the restaurant’s kitchen, preparing barbecue sauce and side dishes,

1600’s. The route home took them through the mark Twain National Forest near Farmington, Missouri. Marcy Mayer Adamson and husband Jeff are so proud of their baby boy, named Gentry! Sweet Gentry Thomas Adamson was 9 lbs 14 oz. 19 ½ inches, on October 29. He is absolutely gorgeous! Welcome to the world, baby Gentry! Your grandmother Jan, would be bursting with pride! Marcie is the daughter of Jim Mayer and the late Jan Mayer. Amy Spotts is doing much better this week! Butch Jackson and Pauletta Harrison Kilzer could still use lots of prayers and support from everyone. Keep Lanette Pratt in your prayers. She is in Baptist East hospital. Ricky Scott is taking a break from the highway life. He is taking in a little R & R to spend time with his sweet, sweet, wife, Betty Ann and his children. I know she is tickled about that! They were spotted at Jimmy’s Main Street Grill recently! Becky Campbell Cannon and new husband, Lee, finally tied the knot! Congratulations to the both of you! A sad note: Joyce Hale has passed away. Let’s support Dr. Bob Hale and his daughters, Beth and Cherie with our sympathy. It is Well With Her Soul.

The Golden Teddy and I just got back from a down and dirty quick trip to Pigeon Forge! We had to go see the foliage before it disappeared! We took Jami Beth with us and we met Jody and her husband Chris, at our cabin at Lantern Hill, called Betty Jean’s Joy. It was perfection! Chris drove us through the state park, and we oooohed and ahhhhhed over the mountains and the blazing colors! We had a little fur baby surprise at the cabin when an adorable gray and white cat visited and spent the night with us! They had a journal that everyone who stayed in this cabin wrote in and some other guests had experienced this little cat. They named him Smoky! How appropriate! Ms. Emma Delk has been collecting winter coats at the Stanton Library this fall. She has already received 22 and could use some more because most of those have already been distributed. If you have good winter coats to donate, please take them to the Stanton Welcome Center/Lending Library. They will ensure the coats are distributed to needy people in the community. Let me hear from you! Aroundtownmarty@aol. com or 780-4111

Chamber of Commerce Director Helen learned her way around the pit. Since then, Helen has been cooking barbecue six days a week and serving it to scores of loyal customers from Brownsville and beyond. Though her husband often helps her start the fire in the morning, Helen Turner is the undisputed pitmistress of Helen’s Bar-B-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 customer’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 Helen also prepares from scratch. In 2012, Helen Turner was featured in Southern Living’s Smokin’ Hot List, recognizing ten of the South’s best pitmasters.

In March 2013, Helen boarded a plane for the first time in her life to attend the Wine + Food Festival in Charleston, SC, where she was crowned the first-ever Queen of Barbecue by the Southern Foodways Alliance. Previous winners have all been kings. Barbecue is a tough business for anyone, male or female. There is wood to chop, fires to stoke, and coals to shovel. Meat must be prepared for cooking, flipped and taken off the pit at the right time, and kept warm without being allowed to dry out. When the smoke— and there’s plenty of it, billowing out of her screened-in pit room— gets in her eyes, Helen doesn’t let it stop her. She keeps cooking because it’s satisfying work, and because she loves interacting with her customers. Working together creates success!

Allen News

bring it together. We want to wish Emily Herron & Patrick Littlejohn a lifetime of happiness – they were married at Tabernacle last week-end. Sonny and I attended their reception at the country club. A flat tire sidelined us from getting to the wedding, but we did make the reception. The food was the best I’ve ever had at any wedding reception - Allen’s own Iris Byrd and her staff outdid themselves! And the band was so good – I don’t know if they had a name, but Sonny called them “Poochie and the Mad Dogs”. They were so good that Sonny even danced - I’ve been married to this man for almost 20 years and I’ve never seen him move like that! Sometimes I run into some of ya’ll and you have such sweet things to say about my column. So here’s a “shout out” and a “thanks” to 3 of my faithful readers: Ginger Hathcock, Betty Escue and Gene McFarland. Happy Birthday to Tina Edwards, Cullen

Kirk, Shirley Kendrick, Brent Byrd, Roger Byrd, and Caleb Kendrick. And Happy Anniversary to Johnny and Connie Hendrix. Our prayers for the sick and hurting should always be the same – just the names change from time to time. We need to always lift them up to the Great Physician and know that He is in control. Also lift up the families who have lost loved ones and for our military and their families. My quote of the week comes from my new friend, Bill Davis, from Ripley – we were discussing how hurtful things that people say can be to others – especially to children and young people. It’s a different “take” on an old saying that we’ve all heard many times: “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will break my heart”. So thanks to Bill for sharing and reminding us of the importance of kindness to one another. Love and blessings to you all.

Hillville - Eurekaton News By Vicki Williams Mr. Jerry Lewis was recognized on Sunday for his many years of faithful and dedicated service at Mt. Pleasant UMC. He was presented a plague during the service by his son, Gerald Lewis. Following worship service a surprise luncheon was given in his honor. Special guests were his brother Paul Lewis and his wife, Mary, his sister Hope Cannon and husband, Bobby, his son Tim and wife, Lisa Lewis and granddaughters Sarah and Hannah Lewis. Following the luncheon Mike Johnson and his band which includes Gerald Lewis performed gospel music. A very special guest was Mr. Donny Culver of Bartlett who performed on the bagpipes. Amazing Grace was awesome on the bagpipes. Approximately fifteen ladies attended the Women’s Gathering Study hosted by Mrs. Shirley Morgan on Saturday, November 2 at Harmony Baptist Church. I heard Mrs. Shirley gave an amazing testimony. Travis and I , along

with Mama(Olivia Watson), Krystle, James Chilcutt and Ashlee Chilcutt had a great time in the home of my Aunt Barbara Milam’s on Saturday evening. My cousin Jim Watson and his wife, Joyce was here visiting from Little Rock, Arkansas. There were several others from the Watson clan there also and if I tried to mention them all I would surely leave someone out. A great time was had by all. The Joint Community Thanksgiving Service for Mt. Pleasant UMC, Harmony Baptist Church and Good Hope MB Church will be held on Wednesday, November 27th The service will be hosted by Harmony Baptist Church this year. This service is open for anyone who would like to attend and we use this time to recognize the Cancer Survivors within our community. Please come and join us for this special occasion.

Westside News

By Sandi Bishop Although I love being out singing with our trio, I miss Bro. Phil’s messages first-hand, so sometimes I have to let him fill me in. His message was from Phillipians 2:1-4 instructions to the church on how to have the mind of Christ. If we have the mind of Christ, we’ll be in harmony with Him and with one another – and as we’re in harmony with Him, humility will become a primary trait. And if we’re in harmony with Christ and experiencing humility, helpfulness to others will follow. Greg Campbell led the music in Harriet’s absence and sang the special music. Thanks to Greg for helping out. “Trunk-r-Treat” was great at Allen Thursday night in spite of the threat of bad weather. This ministry through our church and many others in the area is such a “safe haven” for children to come and parents not to have to worry about them being out in neighborhoods where anything can happen to them. Thanks to Shey and all who worked to


Bill Glover, Tom and Shirley Morgan, Richard Kirkland, Enid Powell, and The Nation. Please keep the family of Mr. James Robert Jarrett, Mr. Marcus Adams, Mrs. Annie Lee, Mr. Albert Fisher, Mrs. Elaine Hinsley, Mr. Morrison Hulme, Mr. Bobby Joe Ward and Mr. Christopher Mayfield in your thoughts and prayers. Our closing Thought for the Week as published by Roland P. Rink of South Africa. “Today I will remember that I am God’s beloved. When times get tough and the world seems to weigh us down, we can remind each other that we are God’s beloved children. These days when worry and doubt begin to assail you, here is a new way to deal with them. Repeat over and over again “You are my beloved. With you I am well pleased”. In a world of distraction and noise, you will find this helpful to remember that God loves you. If you have news to share, please call me at 772-1885, after 5:00 p.m. Until next week.... God bless.

By Mary W. Lewis Margaret Aiken’s nephew (from her late husband) and his wife from Center Point, Alabama, which is located several miles north of Birmingham, were her guests for a few days last week as they were traveling by motorcycle. Riding behind him, of course, his wife read a book on the way and received strange looks from traffic. They left for home Thursday morning with an eye on the sky, as they were hoping no rain would fall until they made it home. Happy birthday to many of our Westside members and friends! Those with November birthdays are Joan Brummett and Alina Woods (11/1), Jimmy Naylor (11/3), Yevonne Mathias (11/6), Doug Taylor (11/9), Ann Jackson (11/11), Jane Powell (11/14), Jackson Robinson (11/16), Brooke Haywood (11/21), Lavenia Emison (11/22), Frances Belew (11/27), and Larry Sutherland (11/28).

22. Paul’s aunt, Dorothy Bruce, is a patient at Crestview for therapy as a result of a fall which led to a broken vertebrae and toe. The doctor fused the vertebrae using a balloon-type installation plus a tiny amount of cement between the vertebrae, easing the pain. We are happy she can get some relief. She is a very sweet and interesting lady with a lot of spunk. She is 95 years young! Her room is 112. Sunday afternoons are our scheduled dates for visiting with our two healthcare facilities, Crestview and Sugarcreek. The following members of Westside Church were present: Albert and Ann Jackson, Larry and Martha Sweeney, Jack and Nell Fox, Zachary Fox, Paul and Mary Lewis, and Ron Teems. Crestview resident members of Westside are: Minnie King, Mary Lucille Moses, and Mae Mathias. Jefferson Street members present were: Bertha Read. Several resident Crestview members joined us, and we are

always glad to have them. Jerry Lewis, brother of Paul Lewis and Hope Lewis Cannon, received a plaque Sunday at Mt. Pleasant Methodist Church in Hillville, where Jerry Wilson preaches, in appreciation of 55 years as their song leader. Jerry Lewis’ son, Gerald, will become their new song leader. The church proclaimed Sunday as appreciation day in honor of Jerry Lewis. He is married to Peggy Stuart Lewis, and they have five children and numerous grandchildren. Peggy’s mother, Mrs. Paul Stewart, was the correspondent for the States Graphic for many years. Mrs. Dude Lewis, other of Jerry, also wrote for the paper for many years. Vickie Williams currently writes the news for that area, and is doing a great job. A few other November birthdays are: Justin Connally (11/10), grandson of Bill and Bobby Connally, Seth Glidewell (11/12), Joe Delaney (11/24), and Krystle Williams (11/27).

By DeDe

Congratulations to Nathan Outlaw on being voted our Superstar of the month for November. Residents voted and Nathan won. Anyone that knows him knows that he is just such a sweet and kind gentleman. All the residents and staff sure do love him. I took a few of the ladies out for a ride last week to enjoy the beautiful sunshine and all the beauties of fall. Grace Mulligan, Marie Carlton, Dora Robison, Nell Forsythe and Laura Richards took a tour of Poplar Corner Road, Dr. Hess Road and Upper Zion Road. We went by some of their birth places and they told us all about the land and what they did growing up. It was really interesting to learn about who lived where and how they got to school and

church. I am truly blessed to be around all these wonderful people and love to stop and listen to what they have to say. We can learn a lot if we just stop and turn our listening ears on. Our calendar pictures are almost done. I’ve tried not to go and peep at them, so I can be surprised as everyone else when it is completed and rolled out for all of the residents and families to see. Just seeing the residents getting all dressed up is so exciting. Make sure you get on the list to receive one of our calendars for 2014, if not you sure will miss a great piece of history. Thank You to the States Graphic for the Senior Savy page. Didn’t our residents look great? Arline Boisvert, Nathan Outlaw, Grace Mulligan,

Dora Robison, Laura Richards and Jack Fletcher all had their great pictures in the paper last week. I see on Facebook everyone is doing the 31 days of Thankfulness and it is really good to see people stopping to think about the things and people we are thankful for. What are you thankful for? November is the month of Thanksgiving and a great time of the year to realize just what God has blessed each of us with. I hope each of you will take the time to stop and enjoy the blessings God as given you over the last year. Some days it doesn’t feel like we have anything to be thankful for, but believe that God has put you there for a reason. Psalm 107:1 “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.”

Libra rary ry Corner children on Halloween. All of the residents enjoyed seeing all the little children dressed up. We extend sympathy to the family of Mrs. Mammie Smith. She is truly missed! We also express sympathy to the family of Mrs. Ginger Warren, who worked here for several years. Thought for the week: Extraordinary acts of love can change the heart of hearts. (Cee T. Palmore)

Tennessee will receive more than $12 million as part of a multistate and federal agreement resolving allegations pharmaceutical manufacturer Johnson & Johnson (J & J) and its subsidiary, Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc., used deceptive marketing tactics. Specifically, the parties will pay $1.6 billion to resolve civil and criminal allegations of unlawful marketing practices to promote the sales of their atypical antipsychotic drugs, Risperdal and Invega. J&J and Janssen will pay in excess of $1.2 billion to the states and the federal government to resolve four qui tam, or whistleblower, lawsuits filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania under the provisions of the federal False Claims Act and similar state False Claims statutes. In addition, Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc. will plead guilty in federal court to a criminal misdemeanor charge of misbranding Risperdal in violation of the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. As part of the criminal plea, Janssen has agreed to pay an additional $400 million in criminal fines and forfeitures. “We applaud the cooperative work of the states and federal government to stop drug

companies from illegally marketing potentially dangerous drugs to the public,” Tennessee Attorney General Bob Cooper said. “The public needs to be able to trust those responsible for their health and wellbeing, and that includes drug manufacturers and those who prescribe medications.” J & J and Janssen allegedly promoted, marketed and introduced Risperdal and Invega into interstate commerce for uses not approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and for uses that were not medically indicated. Once the FDA approves a drug as safe and effective, a manufacturer cannot market or promote a drug for an “offlabel” or other use not identified in the FDAapproved product label. The states contend that during the period Jan. 1, 1999 through Dec. 31, 2005, the companies promoted Risperdal for off-label uses and made false and misleading statements about the safety and efficacy of Risperdal. The states additionally allege J&J and Janssen paid illegal kickbacks to health care professionals and long-term care pharmacy providers to induce them to promote or prescribe Risperdal to children, adolescents and the elderly when there was no FDA approval

for Risperdal use in these patient populations. The states further contend that from Jan. 1, 2007 through Dec. 31, 2009, the companies promoted Invega for off-label uses and made false and misleading statements about the safety and efficacy of Invega. The manufacturers’ alleged unlawful conduct caused false and/ or fraudulent claims to be submitted to or caused purchases by government funded health care programs, including the state Medicaid programs. As part of the global resolution, the companies will enter into a Corporate Integrity Agreement with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Inspector General, which will closely monitor the company’s future marketing practices. A team from the National Association of Medicaid Fraud Control Units worked closely with the federal government on the investigation and conducted the settlement negotiations with the pharmaceutical manufacturers on behalf of the states. Team members included representatives from the Offices of the Attorneys General for the states of New York, Massachusetts, Ohio and California.

Trick-or-Treating in Brownsville

Brownsville States Graphic/Megan Davis The Brownsville States Graphic and Brownsville Radio welcomed trick-or-treaters into their lobby and passed out candy and treat bags. Brownsville Radio did a live broadcast during Trick-or-Treat with me on the square, and The States Graphic took lots of pictures of super heroes, princesses, ghosts, and goblins. Joyce Moore dressed as a cheerleader, and Drew Magruder dressed as a football player. Both businesses even had special helpers on hand to help pass out treat bags and fill them with candy.

Brownsville States Graphic/Jennifer Willis The residents at Sugar Creek enjoyed handing out candy to all of their visitors on Halloween. Bert and Ernie were on hand to take pictures with the kids and hand out candy as they left. Several of the residents had little helpers to greet trick-or-treaters and fill their buckets with goodies.
