Area hit with a few thefts By CALVIN CARTER ccarter@statesgraphic.com

While it may have been a bit calm crime wise in the city that hasn’t prevented a few arrests from the Brownsville Police Department (BPD). Authorities arrested a suspect for a shoplifting incident last Monday, October 31. James Hardin Jr., was caught by the police shortly after shoplifting the AutoZone located on East Main at approximately 4 p.m. Authorities already had a warrant for Hardin’s arrest for a September incident that saw the suspect evade authorities following an attempted traffic stop. Once followed by authorities, he pulled over his vehicle and ran away on foot. In addition to being charged with shoplifting-theft of property, Hardin was also charged with speeding, evading arrest and driving on a revoked license. In other news, a Brownsville woman was arrested in connection of a robbery. Tuesday, October 22, at 6:57 a.m., authorities received a call about a Somerville man who was driving with the suspected woman on Tina Drive. When he stopped, two suspects took a bag from the man, which contained $1,400. see THEFTS page 3

Gresham visits with state comptroller By CALVIN CARTER ccarter@statesgraphic.com

The position of Tennessee Comptroller may not be so simple to understand. Take Senator Delores Gresham’s attempt to better understand the role of Tennessee Comptroller Justin Wilson, both of whom made an appearance at the Brownsville-Haywood County Chamber of Commerce last Thursday November 2. Gresham recalled trying to

decipher Wilson’s role via a guide. “I looked for a guide. Well I found a guide, and it’s 36 pages on how to guide through the comptroller’s office,” Gresham recalled. “For heaven’s sake, 36 pages! So the man in charge of these 36 pages is here today.” Wilson, who took the role in January 2009, began his talk with the crowd by giving praise to the work of Gresham and her fearlessness at taking a fresh look at real change, he said.

“You see a lot in Nashville, that’s the way they think to solve a problem is you throw a lot of money at it,” Wilson said. “Well, she [Gresham] believes the way to solve problems is through real reform. And there’s a difference. There’s an important difference.” Wilson talked briefly about the state legislation’s recent activity before fielding questions from the crowd. He expressed how pleased he was that the state managed to put together a balanced

budget in the earliest time they’ve ever done. “Well, in Tennessee, we are going to pay our bills on time,” he said. We’re going to keep the courthouses open, have a full function government and meet our obligations. And what this legislature did is we cut our expenses, slightly reduced taxes, not much but they did reduce taxes and did not borrow any money except for capital expenses.” Wilson touched a bit on his responsibilities as see COMPTROLLER page 3

West Tennessee Solar Farm delayed

Completion of the West Tennessee Solar Farm appears to be hitting a bit of delay. The Associated Press reported recently that the farm, which was suppose to finish completion during fall may not go online until early next year. Project manager Elliott Barnett of Signal Energy LLC of Chattanooga, which designed and is building the farm, stated that the delay stems from “the upgrade of the electrical lines that go from the solar farm to the Chickasaw Electric Cooperative substation.” According to Barnett, the substation is where the power will actually hook into the grid and approximately nine miles of line needs upgrading. The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) will purchase power from the farm. Barnett expects it to generate $100,000 in revenue each month. There hasn’t been any official word yet on how the delay will affect the status of the proposed Welcome Center. Earlier this year, the state placed a stop on the welcome center construction due a freeze on funds. In September of this year, Haywood County Mayor Franklin Smith announced that the freeze had been lifted by Governor Bill Haslam and that construction of the welcome center would finally take place, though no start date was given. The Haywood County Solar Farm is one of many projects granted both state and federal funding.

WWII Veteran revisits Europe By CALVIN CARTER ccarter@statesgraphic.com If you ever meet Haywood County resident, Roy “R.V.” Cannon, one of the first things you notice about him is his heart. Living alone at his residence off of Highway 70, Cannon spends most of his days tending to his garden of homegrown tomatoes, kiwis and mustard greens. To friends or church members, Cannon gives away what he’s grown without so much as even a mention. “I’ll do what I can to help other people. Life is too short to not do it that way.” Cannon would humbly say. And he welcomes company with straight talk on just about any subject you could imagine. But if you spend enough time with him, you also quickly learn that the 87-yearold isn’t just a veteran of life, but also a veteran of one of the world’s biggest wars. At 16, Cannon decided to volunteer for the army during World War II.

“I was young, and like most young people, figured that I knew everything,” Cannon said when asked why he joined. Cannon was appointed to the 635th Anti-Aircraft Division, which was attached to General Patton’s A Corp. A young man then, Cannon can still easily recall the horrors of World War II. “I lost a lot of buddies from that war. There were nine of us from the south that joined, and only me and one other person came back. The rest are up on the hill,” Cannon said. The veteran found action in some of WWII’s most brutal battles, including the Battle Of Bastogne and D-Day on the beaches of Normandy. “Someone once asked me about D-Day once, and I said, ‘I don’t believe hell would be any worse than D-Day that day,’” he said. We lost too many men. It was the first time I’d ever seen anything like that.” For Cannon, that particular day was not only an eye opener on the savagery of

Afterwards, I knew that I am a Christian because I was on my knees asking God to please get us through this.”

Cannon served for four years before going into the reserves and then eventually retiring. Despite the horrors he was exposed to, his patriotism clearly remains intact. “I am proud to have served see VETERAN page 3

City hears results from SWTDD By CALVIN CARTER

ccarter@statesgraphic.com

Happy Birthday Gardner Building By CALVIN CARTER ccarter@statesgraphic.com The businesses at the Gardner Building on the court square celebrated their Ten year- anniversary Tuesday, November 8 during a special open house. During these past ten years, the building has

housed a multitude of numerous businesses including at one point, Bethel University, Child Support Services and District Attorney Garry Brown’s office. Currently, the building houses Crye Leike Real Estate Specialists, who along with Martin’s

Exterminating Company have operated at the building for ten years, Hooper Law Firm, PLLC, which has been at the building for five years and Staplecotn, which has been there for almost four years, and Helping Hands Advocacy Group has been there for two years.

Pictured are owners and representatives from each of the listed businesses. Attendees were able to view a scrapbook detailing the building’s history beyond ten years and also enjoy some light refreshments including a special cake from E.W. James that had the current businesses listed.

The Brownsville Board of Mayor and Aldermen met for their monthly meeting Tuesday, November 8. The board dealt with a light agenda, having no ordinances or resolutions to really vote for. The board spent nearly half of the meeting hearing from the Southwest Tennessee Development District (SWTDD) on the Regional Economic Development District (REDI) program. According to REDI Director the program has grown from three employees to 12, has helped numerous students get ready for college through their mentorship program and locally, has already provided 13 recipients with scholarships. “This program began March of last year and I want to thank Mayor Matherne for being a great supporter,” SWTTD Executive Director Joe

Barker said. In other board news, Mayor Jo Matherne touched on a few city projects that will be coming to a close, including news on the court square work. The mayor anticipates that primary construction the project should be finished in two weeks. The city is of course also aiming to get a $900,000 grant to do sidewalk construction work for East Main street. The board also scheduled a budget workshop to tackle any amendments that need to be made to the budget, given this fiscal year’s projects and grants received. And finally, TVA’s bill for September was $1,420,386.56. This month an average residential electric bill should have decreased at approximately one percent. And September unemployment was at 13.5 percent.

Morris earns Combat Engineer award By CALVIN CARTER ccarter@statesgraphic.com Gunnery Sergeant Jerry G. Morris is the son of Tim and Renee Morris of Bells, and the grandson of Jerry and Peggy Lewis of Brownsville and the late Jerry and Faye Morris of Jackson. He graduated from Haywood High School in 1999 and he joined the United States Marines three days later on May 24, 1999. Gunnery Sergeant Morris has done one deployment to Iraq and just recently returned from his second deployment to Afghanistan in May. He is currently stationed in Oahu Hawaii, where he lives with his wife Tambra and stepson Trsisten and expecting a baby in April. Morris was recently awarded the Combat Engineer Staff Noncommissioned Officer of the Year from the Marine Corps Engineer Association and The Society of American Military Engineers for service set forth in the following: For superior performance of duties while serving as Platoon

Sergeant Second Platoon, Mobility Assault Company, First Combat Engineer Battalion, First Marine Division From April 1, 2010 to March 31, 2011. On November 9, 2010, while in connection with combat operations involving conflict with an opposing force in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, Second Platoon’s lead vehicle struck an improvised explosive device, which triggered an aggressive ambush from an enemy squad sized reinforced element, Gunnery Sergeant Morris courageously exposed himself to AK47 and machine gun fire, establishing security and coordinated the extraction and evacuation of the casualty while simultaneously calling out distances and marking targets with yellow smoke enabling the platoon machine gunners to provide cover fire with devastating results. On December 16, 2010, the platoon’s lead vehicle again took a direct hit from an improvised

explosive device, which immediately triggered enemy mortar and small arms fires. Gunnery Sergeant Morris, boldly and valiantly, while exposed to enemy fire from the south, successfully cleared the area of all improvised explosive device threats and spearheaded the extraction of the four marines out of the down vehicle while simultaneously ensuring the effective fires of all weapon systems were held in force; ultimately forcing the determined enemy to retreat. On January 16, 2011, the platoon was decisively engaged by Ak-47 and RPG fire. Morris again exposed himself to enemy fires and brilliantly executed marking multiple targets with yellow smoke, allowing the platoon to mass all fires on the enemy. Morris’ initiative, perseverance and total dedication to duty reflected credit upon him and upheld the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and the United States Naval Service.

VETERAN continued my country. And if I had to go through it again, knowing what know now, I would. I think everyone should do their part for this country.” Recently, Cannon received the opportunity to go back to Europe, thanks to the fundraising efforts of Forever Young Senior Wish, a public charitable organization in Memphis founded by Diane Hight. The organization has a history of taking WWII veterans to the National WWII Memorial in Washington D.C., yet this

time the organization chose to take a group of 15 veterans, including Cannon to Europe. For Cannon, the opportunity to revisit Europe was both emotionally difficult, yet also satisfying. “It did bring back a lot of bad memories being back over there,” Cannon recalled. “It was hurtful, but it was also joyful to see how much the Bastognian and Belgium people felt about us. They treated us like liberators.” Cannon received three

medals from the people of Bastogne, already adding to his impressive collection of medals and ribbons for his bravery. Yet, no matter how many times he may be recognized for his efforts, the veteran remains humble in his role during WWII. “I don’t claim to be a hero. The boys that didn’t come home, they’re the heroes,” he said. If you’d like more information on Forever Young, please call 901299-7516.

COMPTROLLER continued a Comptroller, including providing audits as well as serving as a bit of “money cop” when it comes to catching episodes of financial fraud, waste and abuse. “Usually when we come to see you, it’s not a good sign,” Wilson noted.

Wilson concluded his time that afternoon, by taking questions on a variety of subjects, including Tennessee’s positive stance in the eyes of rating agencies, West Tennessee’s few debt or fraud problems yet current lack of economic development and his

view on the future of the proposed West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center. “It’s a lot of land and you want to make sure you get the right lead tenant,” Wilson said. “I don’t know what effect it will have on jobs, but it’s got to be a real positive.”

The man left his car and chased after the two suspects, but did not catch them. When he arrived back to his car, the woman, listed as Amanda Cheries Seymour, had left

the vehicle. Seymour has been arrested by authorities in connection with the crime and charged with aggravated robbery, theft of property over $1,000

and prostitution. BPD is still seeking information on the two other suspects. If you have any information concerning the crime, call Crime Stoppers at 731-772-2274.

Off the Beaten Path with Jerry Wilson

Not much of a hunter While riding down Highway 76 recently, the sound of gunshots rang across the horizon as I drove through the Hatchie Wildlife Refuge. The sound of rapid gunfire served as a quick reminder that another hunting season had officially opened. It also reminded me of all the invitations I’ve received through the years to join a hunting expedition. I would graciously thank them but excuse myself because of other things that needed to be done. After all, it would have taken too long to explain the entire story regarding my experiences as a hunter. The time came when some friends and relatives decided that it was time for me to get some hunting instructions. Apparently, they thought a young boy growing up in Stogum Bottom so close to wild life and didn’t hunt had to be somewhat abnormal. My first hunting experience started at three o’clock one morning. We all got up early because the members of the hunting team would not start any day without a hearty breakfast that included a full course meal.

Now my instructors were not aware of a few things. This may be news to some friends and acquaintances today that don’t realize that I never drank coffee or eat breakfast in the days of my youth. In fact, my mama always told me that I turned out to be the runt in the family because I never ate breakfast during my development years. After a while, the men had full stomachs and were ready to take on the day. Meanwhile, I had been successful in removing most of the sleepies from my eyes, and we started on our journey to the team’s favorite hunting site. Things didn’t get better. In fact, they got progressively worse. We walked single file through the woods. Uncle J.W. went first. I was second in the file and Mr. Charlie brought up the rear. My grand ole uncle would push tree limbs to the side in order to pass and let go with perfect timing that knocked me to ground more than once. By the time we arrived at the hunting site, I was a rambling wreck looking more like the hunted rather than the hunter. After arriving on the

hunting site, Mr. Charlie looked at me and said, “Son, find you a place to sit down and get comfortable while we wait for more daylight.” Did he say for me to get comfortable? That would be absolutely impossible sitting with my back to a tree on a hard ground, slapped repeatedly by gigantic tree limbs, suffering from a sprained ankle after stepping in a gopher hole, and soaked inside and out after falling from a log while attempting to cross a creek. As dawn approached, the shooting really started and they were bringing in the squirrels. Mr. Charlie noticed that I was covering my ears every time they fired a shot. This situation really stumped them. “What are we going to do?” asked the uncle. “We have one of two choices,” replied Mr. Charlie. “We can either hold the gun or pull the trigger while he covers his ears or we can find a way to cover his ears while he shoots the gun.” Needless to say, I didn’t shoot the gun that day. That day came a little later but that’s another story”.

Fincher gets educatation The work of a U.S. Representative is never done according to freshman U.S. Rep. Stephen Fincher (R-Frog Jump, Tenn.) who serves the people of the Eighth Congressional District that includes Haywood County. Fincher’s already on the campaign trail, a fact he said comes from serving a two-year term. “It never ends,” he said. After serving eight months in Congress in what was an election-day landslide that swept Fincher and other GOP candidates into the majority in the U.S. House of Representatives, Fincher has seen the inside of the Beltway and he’s faced a few surprises. “I’m very conservative,” he said. “I ran as a conservative. But when I got to Washington, I realized I was moderate in comparison to some others.” Fincher said he supports many T.E.A. Party ideas, but he admits he’s not in their corner (nor are they in his) on all issues. “The T.E.A. Party is mad I didn’t shut the government down,” he said. “I told people, ‘You don’t understand what a shut down means,’ and they didn’t understand what that meant either.” And the polarity that exists between left-wing extremists who represent a portion of the Democratic Party and the right-wing extremists who represent a portion of the Republican Party makes it “difficult to govern,” Fincher believes. “((House Minority Leader Nancy) Pelosi has a direction she wants to go, and the Speaker of

the House (John Boehner) has has a direction he wants to go and they’re not even on the same planet,” Fincher said. He added, “The country has been going down the wrong path for some time and I mean under both sides (Republican and Democrat),” he said. “It’s not one party. But it’s our responsibility to deal with the problems that are bankrupting us as a country.” Fincher’s moderation gave way to outright conservatism when he introduced a bill earlier this month that would require drug testing for a percentage of welfare beneficiaries and he has drawn a lot of fire from leftists for the proposed bill. And he acknowledges it won’t likely become law. Even if it passes the House, which he said is possible, but not likely, it will be dead on arrival in the Senate. Still, he thinks the dialogue generated by the proposal is positive. Fincher also supports the notion of individual accountability and bristles at the idea of bigger government making many decisions on a personal and family level. And he thinks government spending is out of control and cites regulations like the DoddFrank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and regulations on energy policy imposed by the Environmental Protection Agency as being bad for the country’s economy and he believes we should tap into the oil in the Outer Continental Shelf of Alaska.

“We have enough oil to run the country for 500 years,” he said. Responsible drilling, he said, is the key to minimize the environmental impact while meeting our country’s energy demand. “I am a farmer by heart. I love the outdoors. I love hunting and fishing and the environment ,” he said. “No one wants to protect the environment more than I do, but when people are spending twice as much on gas and energy as they used to, we have to do something.” Dodd-Frank, a bill that led to sweeping bank changes, Fincher said, is wellintentioned, but he says it has resulted in banks imposing other charges and fees to customers in order to rebound profit margins from the hit the regulations brought. Locally, Fincher anticipates a redristicting of the state that could bring changes to Haywood County’s representation in the Tennessee House of Representatives; Currently, Speaker Emeritus Jimmy Naifeh (D-Covington) serves Haywood County, but the district he represents could change and encompass more of Tipton County, leaving Haywood County in another district. Meanwhile, Fincher says he plans to keep making decisions in Washington on behalf of his district, not on behalf of House Speaker John Boehner or Majority Whip Eric Cantor. “When I vote, I vote for my district,” he said.

Blood in the Streets Even though the election of 2012 is more than a year away, spokespersons from both major parties are predicting that the other side plans to run the ugliest, most negative campaign in history. And unhappily for the rest of us, they could both be right. National leaders of our two major political parties seem to genuinely detest each other, and everyone is already scared and angry, and the potential for actual violence is frighteningly high. It has happened before, you know, many times. Even Tennessee made the news just a few years ago when a candidate for the state legislature murdered his opponent, but a century ago, Tennessee was the scene of an even more spectacular political killing. It was 103 years ago this week that former senator and recently defeated gubernatorial candidate, Edward Ward Carmack, was gunned down on the streets of Nashville by a political opponent. Senator Carmack had been a newspaperman before he went into politics, and he was famous, or I should say, infamous, for writing fiery, scathing editorials against his enemies. In 1892, he became editor of the Memphis Commercial, the forerunner newspaper to the Commercial Appeal, and it was from there that he began his ascent in politics. He ran for congress in 1896 and was reelected two more times before being appointed to the United States Senate by the state legislature in 1901. (He was elected by the legislature because until passage of the 17th Amendment to the United States Constitution was passed in 1913, the Constitution required that all senators be chosen by state legislatures.) Carmack only served one term, however, because the legislature refused to reappoint him, choosing former governor, Bob Taylor, to replace him in 1907. Angered and bitter, he ran against the incumbent governor, Malcolm Patterson, the next year making statewide prohibition the major issue in the campaign. Prohibition was the most controversial political subject in the state at the time. After the dust had settled, Carmack was the loser in an extremely close race, but he vowed to fight on. He accepted another newspaper job, this time in Nashville, as editor of the newly formed Nashville Tennessean, and he used his

editorship to bitterly attack all his political enemies, one of them being an elderly, retired businessmen named Duncan Cooper who was a close friend of the current governor. Carmack suggested that the governor and all his friends were corrupt, and he compared Cooper to a saloon owner in the seediest part of town. Cooper was wealthy and distinguished and he was shocked and infuriated that Carmack would insult him editorially, so he demanded that Carmack cease and desist. Carmack responded with two more negative editorials. The two men passed threats back and forth, and both began to go armed. Cooper’s son, Robin Cooper, an attorney in Nashville, began to escort his father around town for protection. Then, as fate decreed it, one afternoon while the Coopers were in Robin Cooper’s law office at Third and Church Street, they got a call from Governor Patterson asking them to come up to the Governor’s Mansion to meet with him. They, of course, agreed. The Tennessee Governor’s Mansion at that time stood where the War Memorial Building is now, so they set out, both armed, on foot. Carmack, as fate would have it, was also out that afternoon, also armed and they met on Seventh Avenue, on opposite sides of the street. Upon seeing Carmack, the older Cooper crossed the street to confront him, and that’s when the confusion and the gunfire began. Five shots were fired, two by Carmack and three by Cooper’s son, Robin. When it was over, young Cooper

was wounded, and Senator Carmack lay dead upon the sidewalk. Both Coopers, as well as a man walking beside them, were taken to jail and charged with murder, thus setting the stage for the most sensational murder trial in Nashville history. After a long, exhaustive trial (one of the closing arguments lasted nine and a half hours.) Both Duncan’s were found guilty of seconddegree murder, and each was sentenced to 20 years in prison. They appealed, and several months later the Tennessee Supreme Court overturned the younger Cooper’s conviction but let the one against the old man stand. But he never went to prison, because within minutes of the Court’s announcing its decision, Governor Patterson pardoned him, setting off a storm of controversy that ultimately led to Patterson’s losing the governor’s office. When the legislature came back in session, their first act was to pass a statewide prohibition bill, partly to honor the “martyred” Carmack. Another thing they did was to commission the placement of a statue of Senator Carmack on the State Capitol Grounds where it stands today, between the State Capitol Building and the Legislative Plaza, right above the tunnel named for famous Tennessee whiskey maker, Lem Motlow. You’ve probably seen the statue many times if you have much business at the State Capitol or the Legislature, and if you’re like most people, you’ve wondered who the heck that guy was. Well now you know.

Congratulations to Happy 50th Anniversary Mrs. Gail Smith Dean

The residents of the Douglass Community extend a big congratulations to Mrs. Gail Smith Dean for the splendid job on the preparation of a cake she decorated for

She is a 1972 graduate of Haywood High and partner in her family catering business, The Sibbling LLC. Needless to say, she is a member of Douglass Chapel C.M.E. Church, where the pastor is Rev.

Ninth Review Club Meets

The Ninth Review Club met on Tuesday, November 1, at the lovely country home of Lynne Waddell. After mingling and talking for a short time, a very informative business meeting was held. Genie Taylor read the minutes from the last meeting, and it was discussed that we provided eye glasses for two students who needed them. We were also brought up-to-date on the two children from the Carl Perkins Center to whom we will give Christmas presents this year. Janet Moore was in charge of the program, which was very entertaining. Janet reviewed an article in Southern Living magazine that was written by Rick Bragg. He talked about

Holiday Traditions and life growing up in the South, to which he added multitudes of humor and fun. After Janet’s delightful presentation, each of the club members told of happy or humorous holidays they had experienced in life. We truly had a good time bringing back all the memories. Our club is celebrating our 40th year in 2011, and our president, Margie Hooper, has several things planned for us. We are all contributing recipes, which will be compiled and distributed to all members at the end of the year. Our theme for the year is “Getting to know each other better.” Sheri Richards has offered her beautiful home for our annual

Holiday Mart ‘Celebrate the Season’ and shop our 100+ fabulous merchants for thousands of unique gift ideas.

Wow, the month of November sure did get here fast! It seems like just yesterday that we were just beginning the year and now we are almost at the end. Time sure does fly! And sometimes we wish that it would slow down just a little bit so that we could enjoy it a little more. Such is life. The library would like to extend our warmest thanks and job well done to Mr. Tom Lea for his Lunch and Learn program last week. Mr. Tom is an inspiration with plants, leaves and gourds.

Thought for the Week: “Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating. There is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of weather.” - John Ruskin

Zion Baptist Church certainly proved the tithe Sunday morning following the sudden death of our beloved Pastor Mark Conway last Monday. Thanks to an amazing group of deacons who picked up with plans already in place and followed through with them. This program was followed by many testimonies given concerning memories of Brother Mark. That man was everyone’s friend! Please continue to pray for Lisa, Sarah, David, Hannah, Rachel and Bobby, as well as the rest of our Church family. Sunday afternoon, Jimmy and I traveled to Hillville and had dinner with our son, Jason and his family. We rode the “Cub” with the grandkids and had a beautiful afternoon of fellowship.

A special thanks to Brother Grover Westover, pastor of Harmony Baptist Church for emailing me the information from the community prayer breakfast Thursday morning. He presented the devotion to 21 men and said the breakfast will continue! Anyone interested in joining this faithful group, come to Zion’s family life center every Thursday morning at six. Friday night, my brother Tommy and Judy came over for a visit. We enjoyed dinner at the Olympic in Bells and ran into Scottie and Betty Morris and Mike and Jane Hopper and family. Saturday afternoon we watched our son Jason play in a softball tournament in Brownsville where his team (Jessie Hayes) won. We carried our granddaughter Alivia

with us while her parents Justin and Britany went Christmas shopping. She had a blast playing with her cousins Jacob and Lillie. When we returned home mama came over for a brief visit as well as my brother Charles and Barbara. Zion’s youth enjoyed a hayride at the home of Wayne and Patsy Tritt Saturday night. Everyone had a great time of much needed fellowship and fun. Don’t forget - Harvest Day (20th) and Community Thanksgiving Service at Allen (22nd). Please pray for those who are sick, our military personnel and their families, the shut-ins, those who have lost loved ones and the leaders of our country. Call me at 772-4257 if you have news, people want to know!

By Debbie Sterbinsky By Debbie Sterbinsky cleaning around here! Although there is still some yet to go, Stanton is looking a lot better than it did. Stantonians, let’s take pride in what we DO have, and not worry about what we DON’T have. Picture Stanton falling down a few years ago and look at it now, things can change for the better, and I think we are on the right road. That road throws us for a curve every once in a while, but we’ll make it. And I’m like the rest of you, I want to see things quicker, but geesh, the government process is so full of red tape it takes forever to do anything! More and more breakins… such a shame. Stanton is not exempt from such goings on; thieves even broke into the Town Hall last week. We have a good idea who this was, not much goes on around here somebody doesn’t see. We’re just a poor little town, have no money and certainly keep none on any government premises, so please don’t damage our buildings.

Wednesday, November 23 at 7 p.m. This joint service includes Mt. Pleasant UMC and Harmony Baptist Church. All Cancer Survivors in attendance will be recognized during this very special service. Please make plans to join us as we unite as a community for this service. Bro. Jerry Wilson of Mt. Pleasant UMC will be the speaker. The Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Women met on Wednesday, November 2. Those in attendance were Lillie Goodman, Hope Cannon, Deborah Lewis, Peggy Lewis, Marcia Watson, Barbara Hayes and I. Hope Cannon presented the Pledge Service. Bible study at Mt. Pleasant on Tuesday nights at 6:30 p.m. and everyone is invited to attend. Friday, November 11 is Veterans Day. Take the time to thank a Veteran for the sacrifices given so you can have freedom today. On behalf of Mt. Pleasant Church, we would like to say thank you to Luther Austin, Billy Austin Jr., Wayne Austin, Bobby Cannon, Billy Edmonds,

Barney Garrett, Eugene Kirkland, Ray Williams and Bro. Jerry Wilson for their sacrifices and their commitment to serving our country. Birthday wishes this week to Randall Phillips, Jennifer Williams, Lee Cannon, my nephew Tyler Watson, Chasity Campbell Williams, Marilyn Hammers and Vicki Austin. Prayer requests this week include David McClanahan, Luther and Edna Austin, Robert Campbell, Anneli Myers, James Elrod, Rosie Pentz, Sharon Bouillion, Linda Kirkland, Ruth Vestal, William Logan, Sandra Goodman, Leah Scallions, Enid Powell, Darlene Rossen, Fletcher Lewis, Dorothy Bruce, Earline Benard, Shirley Morgan, the military, the nation and the community. Sympathy to the families of Bro. Mark Conway and Mrs. Barbara McGary in the loss of their loved ones. If you have news to share, please call me at 772-1885 after 5 p.m. Until next week, God bless.

StantonNews News nton First of all, for those of you cleaning up after Halloween, our friends at Oleo Acres have announced that you can donate your pumpkins, straw, cornstalks and any unwanted decorations or costumes to Oleo Acres to be reused instead of adding to the landfill. We also have other residents willing to take straw if you need to get rid of some. Thanksgiving is soon approaching and Christmas is right behind it. The Stanton Christmas Parade will be held Saturday, December 10, 2011 at 2 p.m. I’ve already talked to Santa and he is right on schedule. As a matter of fact, he put in his order for breakfast that morning! Forms for entering the parade are available from Linda Jones, Coordinator at 731548-6182, or at the Stanton Welcome Center/Library 731-548-2564. Let’s make this the biggest parade yet for Stanton! We’ve made great strides this past year just

“How can we show others Christ’s blessing that we have received?” This is our Thought for the Week by Mark H. Anderson of Pennsylvania as published in the Upper Room Devotional. As we enter into the Thanksgiving holidays, we all have so much to be thankful for, but the greatest blessing of all is salvation through Jesus Christ. Many have not fully accepted or acknowledged God’s grace, but when it is accepted and acknowledged you will find peace. Nothing in our lives happen apart from God. Once this is realized, then it leads us to focus on others and we can share the blessing of faith with them. There will be a reception for Josh and Ericka Cannon on Sunday November 13 from 2 - 4 p.m. at the Dancyville Community Center. There will be a money tree at the reception in lieu of gifts. The Joint Thanksgiving Service will be hosted by Bro. Robert Whitley and the congregation of Good Hope MB Church on

A few years ago we were fortunate to have the Stanton Academy. I have recently been told that the instructors from that class still hear from their students. I knew they left their phone numbers with the students and had kept in touch from time to time, but had no idea they are still coaching some of these young people and aiding them in applying and receiving jobs! These two instructors are genuinely great people, and we appreciate them helping our youth still today. Thanks Melvin and Ken Cook! Residents and former residents of Stanton, you may mail Stanton news to me at P.O. Box 181, Stanton, TN 38069, reach me at the Stanton Welcome Center/Library at 731-548-2564, or e-mail me at: Proftster@gmail. com. Please put “Stanton News” in the subject line. Together we will look at the past, look toward the future and report current events.

On Sunday, October 30, Shey Lovelace was ordained into Christian ministry at Allen Baptist Church. It was a beautiful service, with his father, Brother Phil Lovelace, preaching the ordination service. Taylor Dedmon sang for the service and the Barnett Family shared their special song, As For Me and My House. Shey is Allen’s children and youth minister and he is such a blessing to our church. We are so proud of him and the work that he does for the Lord. Brother Phil delivered a good message on Sunday, November 6, with Linda Merrick singing the special music. Linda has such a beautiful voice and is always so gracious to share her talent with us. Happy Birthday to my sweet daughter-in-law, Leah DeLoach Barden, who celebrated her birthday on November 7. I hope your day was as wonderful as you are. Happy Birthday wishes, as well, to Brother Greg Jordan, who

Sugar Creek Holly Grove News ar Creek Holly Grove News Retirement Center News Retirement Center News By Shirley Tucker, Activity Director By Shirley Tucker, Activity Director

We had a wonderful treat this week when Dean and Ann Pettigrew came to have lunch with us and visit with lots of their friends. They know every one out here and our residents were so glad to see them for more reasons than one. Ann brought huge pans of her homemade yeast rolls to go with our poppy seed chicken lunch. When I went in the kitchen, the first thing Rose (one of our cooks) said was, “would you ask that nice lady if we can have that roll recipe?” She didn’t think Ann would give it to us, but any one who knows Ann knows she’s one of the most sharing ladies in town, as well as prettiest, sweetest, classiest, etc. Dean sure hit the jackpot when he found her! Brooke Evans, our esteemed calendar photographer, has been extra busy this week trying to get our pictures ready for that big day… when the Sugar Creek 2012 calendar comes out. We’re hoping it’ll be ready for sale by Thanksgiving! Get your money ready

- it’ll be the best $10 you spend this year. At least you’ll know the folks in this calendar. The First Review Club of Brownsville had their November meeting here at Sugar Creek this week. Our Activity Room is just perfect for things like that and it’s always CLEAN and the coffee is ON. Our cooks will even bake a cake or pie for the meeting if you need us to - at no charge. Is there a deal like that anywhere else in town - I think not! Edna Carter was the hostess and Martha Shull had a great program. I just read a great book, “Heaven is for Real.” If you haven’t read it, get it right away. It’s an interesting quick read. I read it in one afternoon. We want to thank Bob and Martha Lyle Ford for the beautiful arrangement of flowers they sent over. They were in loving memory of Bob’s mother, Edna Ford, and the residents are surely enjoying them. Thank you for thinking of us. We had a great treat this week when we had a “Who Dun It” Mystery Day and Colonel Rankin

from the Brownsville Police Department came and shared a case he worked on that had four different crime scenes. That was a real “who dun it.” I’m getting good at solving these things because I watch NCIS, me and Mark Harmon are getting thick as thieves. Maybe “thieves” isn’t the right word. Maybe “me” isn’t the right word either! Can you believe it’s only two weeks til Thanksgiving? Then you know what is right around the corner! That’s the part I can’t quite fathom. We’re working on Samaritan Purses shoeboxes however that’ll make a believer out of you in a hurry. Geneva Cooper’s daughter came and took her to lunch in Jackson this week. Bet that was fun. Saw MyraJo Hurley’s daughter, Sue, is here this week, as well as Nan Darnaby checking on her mother, Arline Boisvert. Come rock with us before it’s too late.

“Church Membership” was the subject of the message. Jesus said, “Upon this rock, I will build my church.” The church is compared to a building, with the prophets being the foundation and Jesus Christ the Cornerstone. The church is also likened to a family, made up of those who believe in and trust the Lord. They are in the household of God. The church is also compared to a body. In a body, every single cell is important and a part of it. Each member is important and we are accountable to the whole church. It’s a public endorsement of a person’s faith when they are taken into the church as a member. Sad to say, some church members do not take their membership seriously. Prior to the message, the puppets presented, “Heartbeats” and the Drama team, consisting of Casey Long, Rebekah Hopper, Kathy McClinton and Roy Paris, presented a skit entitled, “What About Prayer?” Happy birthday to Phil Emison, Sara Long, Jason Burk, Ricky Hopper, Autumn Watkins, Kathy Clenney, Lynn Kerr, Rebecca Lewis and

Betty Morris. Happy anniversary to Keith and Diane Warren. Our little, great-grandson, Jensen will be celebrating his 2nd. We express our heartfelt sympathy to the family of Rev. Mark Conway and to his church family at Zion Baptist Church. Aaron Campbell, the son of Brother Fred and Nancy Campbell, moved a few months ago to Connecticut with his wife, Becky and daughters Bethany and Emily to be the pastor on the University of Connecticut for nearly a week. Becky sang the special music at Holly Grove Sunday. The Lord was sure with a resident of the Holly Grove Community recently as he attempted to turn his semi truck off the Bells Highway onto the Norris Crossing Road. Arthur Taylor was carefully observing as he maneuvered his truck pulling a large trailer between two cars that were stopped at one of the bridges being constructed. He failed to look down the railroad as he pulled the truck upon the track. He heard the blowing of the train and quickly moved the truck off the track, but the train hit the trailer cutting it

in pieces. The Lord sure took care of you, Arthur. The sick on the prayer list are Jennifer Stephens, Viola Brown, Linda Hayes, Ruth Taylor, Josh Parks, Mary Ann Ballard, Bob Alexander and Glenn White. Others are Greg Baker, Steve Sullivan, James Lewis, Elvin Wells, Michelle Vaughn, Rex Bond, Fletcher Lewis, Ted Mann and Ray and Janie Hight. Also include Sierra McClinton, Troy Hoppers and Barbara Adams. Our granddaughter, Tiffanie, called her grandfather, Dewey, on Friday to wish him a happy birthday. She and her class at Clarksville High School, where she teaches, sang Happy Birthday to him. Alan and Debbie Jones carried Dewey out to a Jackson restaurant that night to celebrate. Loyalty Day will be celebrated at Holly Grove Church on the 13th. Our guest speaker will be Dr. John Adams. Following the morning service, everyone will gather in the family life center for a buffet meal together. You are invited to join us for Sunday school at 9:45, worship at 11 and the meal to follow later. Hope to see you there!

Around Town By Marty Williams

Deb Staggs wrote us this week - “I have been working on my Stanley/ Standley of Forked Deer Haywood County for about nine months now and just made a sort of timeline from about 1776 showing where the family basically came from and how my grandparents, Henry Bryant Stanley and Annie Lee Moore, got together. I am hoping maybe someone out there can use this info as I have many names from the area and hopefully someone may have some information I am missing. Some of the names are “Moore, Bennett, Brock, Lanier, Boone, Taylor, Henry and Chalk. I also included some history of the area and have some links to maps and things, some I am sure I got from

this facebook. If any of this interests you and you are related to any of these families, I have an extensive ancestry account on ancestry.com and a private website with just Stanley/Standley and their families on it that I am still working on, but it really goes back to the ends of time. In the late 1820’s the Standley family had begun its move to Haywood County. By the 1850’s the Standleys (most now using the name Stanley) were still in Haywood and the Moore’s had arrived to Lauderdale County in the 1860’s to find the Stanleys, Henry Chalks family, John T. Moore’s family (Chalks in laws) around District 4 and 5 (Wellwood area) and the Bennetts living in Haywood County District 12 (Woodville/ Forked Deer area). 1870 the Stanleys have moved to District 10 Haywood County, which is now Woodville Forked deer area, The Lanier’s and Brocks have now moved into the area as well. The family of David Moore still in Lauderdale and the Bennett’s have

moved to Dyer County. 1880 The Boon(e)’s now live in Haywood County District 10, The Bennett’s have moved back and the Stanley’s and Lanier’s also live in the Forked Deer area. The Brocks have moved to Lauderdale and the Moore’s still live there. This is about the time period most of the direct descendants lived in Forked Deer area. Below is a more detailed timeline of where everyone was from before they all met in Forked Deer. “ You may view Deb’s list of relatives at: http:// w w w. d e b s - c re a t i o n s . com/timeline.html. She lists the direct descendants on Bryant Stanley’s side, direct descendants on Annie Lee Moore’s side and her Daniel Boone connection. Above is a photo of her grandparents Bryant and Annie Lee (Moore) Stanley.

Margie Stoots and Elise Clinton are the new owners of Kreme Kastle! Finally! The cat is out of the bag! The place was jam-packed the first day they opened for lunch! The absence of Josh and Lauren was felt, but I think the place is going to be as entertaining! This past Friday night they were so busy they actually had to call in all the members of both their families’ to get through the night! Congratulations ladies! Josh and Lauren left it in fabulous hands! David and Kathy spent Halloween in Washington D.C. with son Adam and his friend Julie Schrade. They both traveled from Boston to meet David and Kathy. David and Adam ran the Marine Corps Marathon the day after the unexpected October Nor’easter. The race is 26.2 miles and wound around many of the national monuments. It’s known as The Peoples Race. Final destination was the Iwo Jima WWII Memorial Monument. They were just two of 40,000 in this mass of humanity. This was Adam’s 1st and David’s 9th full marathon and it was an extremely memorable one for both of them. Halloween weekend, Tommie and Nancy Littlejohn had an old fashion cotton ride and hot dog roast for their children, grandchildren, friends and neighbors. Everyone had a grand time sitting around the bonfire, while treats were given to the children. It was a ‘spooktacular’ time! Lisa Lewis is so excited! She is beside herself! There will be a new grandbaby boy coming into her life in April. Congratulations! Holiday in Haywood

University of Memphis honors with tree dedication

Sharon Hayes, Brownsville resident and City Planner, is honored for service to the University of Memphis at a tree dedication held in Banks Park by Business & Finance colleagues, L-R: FRONT: Jeannie Smith, Sharon Hayes, Libby SheltonBACK: David Zettergren, Calvin Strong, Deborah Becker, Deborah Keeney, Denise Keeney & Drew Shaub Photo by Steven Diebold By STEVEN DIEBOLD

sdiebold@statesgraphic.com

On Tuesday, November 1 the University of Memphis (U of M) honored Sharon

Hayes with a Shumard Oak tree at the Web Banks Park. They wanted to make sure that this solidified Hayes’s connection with the U of M, all the years of dedication, all

the friends that she’s made while working there and all that she’s done for the whole division of Business and Financing. What the plaque says

lying on the ground in front of the tree is “Sharon Hayes in honor of 15 years of loyal and dedicated service by the University of Memphis Business and Finance 2011 Shimmered Oak”. Hayes wanted to thank everyone involved in this dedication. It is one of the most wonderful honors that she has ever received in her entire life. And to have this tree that is a beauty to her house, the park and to the entire earth is just an amazing tribute. “Every time I will look at this tree I will remember the University and my good friends.” Hayes said. Sharon Hayes’s professional position at the University of Memphis was University Budget Director; but her personal passion has long been a tree planter, advocate, and admirer. With so many beautiful and mature species on the University’s campus, Hayes made the recommendation for an arboretum to Plant Director Calvin Strong, in his

words “planting the seed”. Calvin and his crew put the idea into action, achieving Levels 1 and 2 Certification for the University. Now in celebration of the University’s 100 Year Anniversary, the plan is to take the University to Level 3 Certification, placing the University among an elite group of certified arboretums in the State of Tennessee. By planting this beautiful

Shumard Oak in Brownsville, it is Hayes’s hope that it will be the cornerstone for a Brownsville Arboretum. In fact, by a preliminary inventory of trees in the Banks Passive Park, Brownsville already has the potential to achieve Level 1 certification, which requires a minimum of 30 species, a designation that would bring local distinction and education opportunity for our community.

Dr. Theresa Woodard is now practicing medicine in Brownsville.

A Supplement of The Brownsville States-Graphic - Thursday November 10, 2011

Cotton yields may be hurt As area farmers ready up the last yields of the year—mostly cotton— records are being updated to report the progress of the 2011 yield of crops. Perhaps one crop that has had quite an interesting year of ups and downs is cotton, a main crop here in Haywood County and Memphis thanks to West Tennessee’s unique soil for the plant. According to John Pearson, Haywood County Executive Director of The Farm Service Agency, although it hasn’t yet been confirmed, it appears that the summer heat may have affected cotton yields this year. “We could see an average of 800-850 pounds, although the verdicts not in yet,” Pearson noted. The area soil may have been hurt by summer drought and heat that hit during the surprisingly dry season. Cotton did however go up in acreage this time. In 2008 there were 50,000 cotton acres. This year the number went up to 97,000, so nearly double the acres.

Prices for cotton were also higher this year, which may have helped even out the rough estimate turnout of this year’s yield. “I think that the income revenue isn’t going to be what they hoped because of that yield,” Pearson said. Soybean acreage decreased compared to previous years, with 2011 producing 49,000 acres compared to 2008’s 91,000. Pearson noted that the decrease might have to do with the cotton plant being the king of crops in Haywood County and West Tennessee. “Haywood County soils are just more conducive to growing cotton,” he said. “We grow good soybeans, but have a better production of cotton.” Wheat acres were good for this year as well, having 25,000 acres for 2011. And corn came in with a respectable 17,000 acres. Will the final yield of cotton produce better results than anticipated? Only time will tell at the moment.

Woods trio awarded Conservationist of the Year The message of preserving land and resources is perhaps a global one thanks to numerous advocates from a variety of walks of life. But don’t think that message has skipped Haywood County. Ever since its organization in 1942, the Haywood County Soil Conservation District had promoted the smart use and treatment of all land and resources “within their capabilities.” And much like their annual Affiliate Member Banquet, the organization has also celebrated those who have best exemplified their mission. The J.B. McAdams award—named after the organizations’ District Conservationist—was awarded to Lois Morrison in 2009. This year, the award went to not one particular individual, but three. Ronald, Clyde and Everett Woods are the 2010 Conservationists of the Year. Given their practice of conservation and land use, it’s easy to see why the Woods were awarded. Each family member farms approximately 1,000 acres of cropland. The Woods have 35 miles of terraces and diversions built and maintained on their land. The Woods practice contour farming and crop rotations and have reduced erosion on cropland to below soil loss tolerance levels. The Woods also maintain a small cow-calf operation with management activities that protect the resource base of the pastured land and manage and maintain several hundred acres of woodland for timber and wildlife benefits. Not to be overlooked, the Haywood

BILL LEA CPA MARK HALBROOK CPA 731-772-2666

County Soil Conservation District also had a number of accomplishments for 2010. Conservation plans were written on 13,665 acres during the year. Staff assistance to land users resulted in approximately 11,000 acres of cropland and pastureland with conservation applied that improved soil and water quality. During Arbor Day, the district managed to give away 4,000 trees to 80 individuals on the courthouse lawn. The district gave assistance to the National Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and Farm Service Agency (FSA) in developing 14 new Continuous Signup Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) contracts on 220 acres and 10 new General Sign-ups on 223 acres. The district also gave support to the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP). EQIP is a voluntary program that provides financial and technical assistance to agricultural producers through contracts that provide financial assistance to help plan and implement conservation practices or improvement with natural resources. The district also purchased 120 bags of quarter acre deer and turkey food plot mixes, which were distributed free to 52 Haywood County landowners in September 2010. The district also did its part to help with the 2010 May Flood. Along with NRCS, they assisted FSA with 45 Emergency Conservation Program applications to repair flood damages. And finally, the district also administered a Tennessee Department of Agriculture special cost share project to

Booth family conservation minded Becky Booth of Haywood County is a successful businesswoman and a devoted family person. She and her husband, Milton, are past winners of the Conservation Farmer of the Year award in Haywood County. The Booths farm 223 acres of cropland and have installed 2,575 feet of terraces with cost share through the Tennessee Department of Agriculture (TDA) Ag Non-Point Special Project program administered by the Haywood County Soil Conservation District in 2009. The terraces treated ephemeral gullies and directed runoff to safe exits around the field. They have planted 11.0 acres of cropland to alfalfa/ orchard grass mix for hay through TDA also in 2009. The Booths will save approximately ten tons of soil per acre by converting cropland to alfalfa/orchard grass mix. In 2011, they have planted 13.0 acres to bermudagrass and 7.2 acres to alfalfa/ orchard grass mix on highly erodible soils. This will save the Booths approximately

15 tons of soil per acre per year also. They raise registered Quarter horses for show and sale. They have a total of 44 registered Quarter horses in their herd. They have won numerous awards showing their horses. The high protein in the alfalfa/orchard grass hay and the bermudagrass hay will greatly improve the conditioning of their registered Quarter horses. The Booths have also enrolled 30.5 acres into State Acres For wildlife Enhancement (SAFE) in the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP). This will benefit grassland and shrub birds by providing nesting habitat, escape cover, brooding habitat, and food sources. Reduction in soil erosion and improved water quality are also benefits from CRP. The Booths are a very conservation minded family and are enjoying the wildlife being seen on their farms. They want to leave their farms in better condition for their children and grandchildren.

Husband-Wife team operate Haywood County Sorghum Farm

Historically, sorghum has always had strong roots in the south, especially in Haywood County. Yet Sorghum’s origins actually take place overseas. Many historians trace it back to Northeastern Africa, with the earliest known record tracing near the EgyptianSudanese border in 8,000 B.C. Eventually it spread to the rest of Africa, as well as India, China and even Australia. Sorghum, not to be confused with sorghum molasses, then made its way to the U.S. with the coming of African American slaves. Thanks, in part to its natural sweetness, perfect mix for southern recipes, the product soon flourished in the southern parts of the country, especially during the Civil War, Marybeth Smith recalled. Sorghum was usually planted about the same time as cotton, and ready to go through the long process of cooking during the fall season. With usually one person having the equipment necessary to completely make the substance, neighboring farmers would gather for a get together while the sorghum cooked. “One farmer would have the equipment, and you’d have neighbors that would bring theirs,” Smith said. While it would cook all night, they would be together for a party.” “That was one of the good things about cooking it then, but they don’t do it anymore,” Marybeth’s husband Freddie Smith added. The Smiths are no stranger to Haywood County, thanks to their Sorghum Farm. Their delicious product is sold all over West Tennessee and also online on their website. Freddie can recall when most farmers,

including his father, use to cook sorghum, even if it wasn’t their primary crop. Yet today, sorghum production may be regarded as a dying art. Its labor intensive and timely process may have turned many away from trying to produce it. Cooking the juice of the plant isn’t exactly a breeze. In fact, it takes nine gallons of juice to produce one gallon of finished sorghum. And even with the modern addition of monitors and technology, nothing quite beats a human touch or pair of eyes. “You have to be one with the pan,” Freddie said. “Whatever that pan is doing, you have to counter.” But that hasn’t really stopped the Smiths from doing their part to keep the practice alive. And their efforts haven’t gone unrewarded. Smith’s Sorghum can be found in E.W. James, Super D’s and Co-Op in Brownsville and the Old Country Store in Jackson. It’s also a popular commodity for people up north or out west where Sorghum is a rare treat. “It just flies off the shelf,” Freddie said. ‘But we’re happy to keep it going.” Sorghum isn’t the only natural export from the Smiths. The husband-wife duo also sells natural raw unprocessed honey. Their farm has 1014 hives of honeybees, and although the bees are collected as more of a personal hobby, their acquirement has helped in the two producing honey for the area. Honey from the farm can be found at CoOp and Super D’s as well. If the Smiths want anything taken from their production of sorghum and honey, it’s probably their fight for residents to think more naturally and locally when it comes to food. Their natural honey has been known

as a great way to combat allergies. And their Sorghum contains enough vitamins and minerals to serve as a natural prenatal for pregnant women. “We always try to tell people, you need to

shop locally. Eat locally,” Marybeth said. For more information on Smith Sorghum, you can visit their website at smithsorghumfarm.com or call 772-3540.

The WTDHC Cotton Museum The West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center contains a special cotton museum, open since 1999. It’s there that attendees can learn more about cotton’s affect on West Tennessee and Haywood County, as well as innovative developments in the production of the substance, including the cotton gin. The museum traces the roots of cotton in West Tennessee from 1826 to the present. You’ll witness a variety of historic items in the museum including old plows, old roller gin, fertilizers, and planters pulled by mules and horses. The museum also contains a collection of White Oak Baskets and two old wood replicas of a Haywood County church and barn. Long scale cultivation of cotton in West Tennessee began in the 1820’s with the opening of the land between the Tennessee and Mississippi rivers. Cotton became an important agricultural staple in Shelby, Fayette,

Hardeman, Madison, and of course, Haywood counties. Thanks to West Tennessee’s deep rich soil, the area is known to grow highgrade cotton. In 1850, Tennessee was ranked fifth place among cotton growing states. Even through a national downturn and destruction of the crops from the bow weevil, cotton still remained a top crop in West Tennessee. It was in the 1940’s when West Tennessee Cotton agriculture had higher yields than other states. In the 1950’s cotton ranked first among Tennessee’s farm commodities in the value of production. Cotton is perhaps a resource taken for granted in Haywood County by most people. Yet the opportunity to learn more about it is always present. The Center is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 779-9000.

Haywood County Soil Conservation District Announces Cost Share Sign-Up

The Haywood County Soil Conservation District has been awarded grants from the Tennessee Department ofAgriculture’s Ag Resources Conservation Fund and 319 Fund to help support the efforts of local farmers and landusers to conserve soil and improve water quality on lands in certain small watersheds. Grants for fiscal year 2012 will be used to cost share landusers who install certain Best Management Practices on their farm. This year priority funds are available in the Cypress Creek and Meridian Creek watersheds in Haywood County. The Ag Conservation Fund gives the Haywood County Soil Conservation District an opportunity to provide financial assistance to landusers who install needed conservation measures that might not otherwise be carried out. Haywood County is primarily a row

crop county with over 130,000 acres of highly erodible fields, which can present erosion and water quality hazards. Much of the grant money in the past has been utilized on row cropland, although there are practices such as cropland conversion (new pasture seeding) and cattle waterers, which can benefit the livestock producer. Hundreds of farmers and landowners have benefited from this program in the past both financially and by protecting and improving their lands. Over ½ million feet of terraces and diversions have been built along with numerous grassed waterways, sediment basins, and other practices with cost share assistance from these funds. Thousands of tons of soil have been saved, and the quality of water in runoff from fields has improved on farmland where these practices have been

When art imitates country life local artist presents Barn Collection

“A good painting to me has always been like a friend. It keeps me company, comforts and inspires.” Hedy Lamarr Inspiration for an artist can come from a number of places. Sometimes it strikes

from something as complex as a deeprooted philosophy. Other times it pops up from perhaps a learned life lesson. For Brownsville resident John Jarrett and his latest collection of artwork inspiration simply appeared from admiring his surroundings.

Blues at Sundown

Jarrett said that he began painting while in high school. He has no formal training and is self-taught, which is perhaps something those eyeing his artwork for the first time might not believe. He has always told people that he went to “G.O.D. University” to acquire his

talent in painting. Some of Jarrett’s ideas come from sketches and photographs made of locations, he said. Other ideas seem to hit when Jarrett has a chance to simply step outside and immerse himself in see ART page 14

ART continued

southern nature. “I just love seeing old country sides, and I love doing that type of outdoor artwork,” he said. The beautiful trees, fields, barns…they can inspire me.” A look at some of his artwork and it’s easy to see his love for the countryside. His paintings truly are an insight into the lives and times of people and places of the south. Jarrett’s “Barn Collection” of paintings could be mistaken for photographs instead when talking of their detail. His paintings’ rich vibrant colors have a warm and historic feel to them. For example, his cleverly titled piece “September Snow,” appropriately showcases a red barn in the distance, surrounded by fields of some of West Tennessee’s finest crop: cotton. Piece, “Still Standing” depicts a dilapidated grey barn, whose hole filled roof and torn chunks of wall could easily convey a long and weathered story just

from a mere glance. But “Blues At Sundown” comes off as Jarrett’s most visual slice of old southern life, as the picture shows a family gathering on the front porch of an old country home surrounding a trio of musicians playing the blues. Jarrett said that he’s produced a multitude of paintings during his life, but wouldn’t have had the nerve to show them if not for his parents. “My mom and dad, they definitely pushed me to show my work off,” Jarrett said. “They would say it makes no sense for me to have all this work and not show it to people.” Jarrett also has to thank John Banks, owner of Bank’s Framing, who would feature his work in special exhibits, and help promote the budding artist. If you’d like more information on Jarrett’s work, you can contact him at 780-3331.
