Brandon Demanche A Tennessee State Trooper located a missing juvenile during a traffic stop in Haywood County during the early morning hours on Tuesday. Trooper Phillip Long, a member of the Tennessee Highway Patrol’s West Bureau Interdiction Plus Team, was conducting stationary radar on Interstate 40 eastbound when he observed a 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse with a missing brake light. He initiated a traffic stop on the Oklahoma registered vehicle at the 43-mile marker at approximately 1:20 a.m.

Tuesday morning. The vehicle was occupied by a male driver and two female passengers. Trooper Long initially detected an odor of marijuana after speaking with the driver, who alleged that the three were on their way to visit family in Connecticut. Further investigationrevealedsuspicious and nervous behavior from a female passenger in the backseat. Trooper Long then requested K-9 assistance, and Trooper Allen Leverette, also of the agency’s Interdiction Plus team, responded to the scene. Trooper

Leverette deployed his K-9, which alerted to the presence of drugs. Investigators then conducted a probable cause search of the vehicle and discovered a small amount of marijuana on the driver’s side door, prescription drugs and other drug paraphernalia. Additionally, a validation check through the THP Communications Center on all of the vehicle occupants revealed the backseat female passenger was listed as a missing person out of Oklahoma. The juvenile was

taken into the custody of the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services. The driver, Brandon F. Demanche,18,ofWeatherford, Okla.,wasarrestedandcharged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, while Kaya D. Bohay, the front seat passenger, was charged with possession of drug paraphernaliaandcontributing to the delinquency of a minor. They were booked into the Haywood County Jail.

Milano’s Pizzeria a hit in Brownsville

BY JENNIFER WILLIS jwillis@statesgraphic.com The Milano family moved from Italy to Brooklyn, New York more than 30 years ago with the dream of opening a pizzeria. In the 1980’s, they

decided to move to Memphis, where they opened the very first Milano’s Pizzeria inside of the Raleigh Springs Mall. It was the first restaurant where pizza was served by the slice in Memphis. Since the first restaurant

opened, business has continued to grow, resulting in the family opening more stores over the years. There are now 11 restaurants in several cities in West Tennessee, including Somerville, Collierville,

Bartlett,Cordova,Millington, Arlington, Memphis and now Brownsville. There is also a Milano’s in Southhaven, Mississippi. Milano’sPizzeriamakesallof their dough from scratch daily. They also use all local and fresh

ingredientsintheirmenuitems, which include pizza, lasagna, spaghetti,fettucine,stromboli, sandwiches, salads and more. Haywood County residents seem to really enjoy the outdoor patio area, and Milano’s is looking for a way to allow their customers to continue to eat outside during the winter months, and are therefore considering the addition of a covered patio. General Manager of the Brownsville location, Jamie Ortega, would like to thank his customers for their patience and understanding during the first couple of weeks they wereopen.“Ourcustomersare great,” said Ortega. “Business has been really good, and is steadily rising. We had a great time at the Hatchie Fall Fest, and were able to serve our pizzatomanypeoplethatday.” Milano’s is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. They also cater events, regardless of the size. Their new telephone number is 731-741-4023.

BPD donates seized items to The Carl Perkins Center

The Brownsville Police Department donated more than $2500.00 worth of seized items to The Carl Perkins Center. BY JENNIFER WILLIS jwillis@statesgraphic.com The

Brownsville

Police

Department seizes property from individuals that acquired the property through illegal activity. An example would be

property that is seized from an individual after they’ve been caught shoplifting. Officers log the evidence in at the police department, and it is kept in storage until an individual’s case has been adjudicated in a court of law. Afterwards, the property is usually sent to the incinerator to be destroyed. Brownsville Police Chief Chris Lea contacted the State Department of the Treasury to let them know the police department had adjudicated property that needed to be disposed of. The Department of the Treasury responded, saying they did not want to take possession of the property, and ordered the Brownsville Police Department to dispose of the property as they saw fit. Chief Lea decided that a

large portion of the items they had could be used by families in need in Haywood County. He therefore made the decision to donate the items to The Carl Perkins Center, and let them distribute it to families who could use help. Thursday, October 18, officers from the Brownsville Police Department delivered a truck load of donated items to the Carl Perkins Center. They delivered laundry detergent, household cleaning supplies, soap, shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste, makeup, lotion, batteries, t-shirts, socks, underwear, a blender, a vacuum sealer, a Roomba vacuum and much more. “The conservative value of the total donation exceeded $2500,” according to Lieutenant Chuck Willis.

The Carl Perkins Center plans to use some of the larger items, such as the Roomba vacuum and the commercial grade vacuum food sealer, in their silent auction, from which the proceeds will come back to the center and allow them to continue to help families throughout Haywood County. Some of the items, such as the more than half a dozen Under Armor footballs they received, will be given as Christmas presents to children in need. All of the other items will be distributed, most likely in “goodie baskets,” to families in need.

Mayor Smith proclaims October “Domestic Violence Awareness Month” October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month and Wo/Men’s Resource and Rape Assistance Program (WRAP) will join domestic violence agencies all over the country to raise awareness about this issue that in some way touches everyone. The saying goes it takes a whole village to raise a child, the same holds true that it takes the whole village to save a victim. Communities respond to violence better when they respond with a team approach. WRAP partners with many agencies within our community to accomplish the goal of providing compassionate care for any victim of domestic violence or sexual assault. The Tennessee Coalition to End Domestic Violence and Sexual Violence report one in four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime. Nearly three out of four Americans personally know someone who is or has been a victim of domestic violence. One survivor quotes, “I remember thinking that if I lived through the night I would have to run for my life the next day.” Even more staggering is each day three women die because of domestic violence. When we are silent, domestic violence thrives. This is a community problem, and together we can make a difference by raising awareness. Many people believe that if someone is in a violent relationship they

can just leave. It may not be the safest way to get out if the victim does not have a good safety plan. Victims need information and knowledge about all of the agencies that can provide assistance now and long term to help them make decisions. Abusers try to control their victims. When abusers feel they are losing control, the abuse often gets worse. WRAP will assist in developing a safety plan, counsel, explain the court system, prepare them for court, attend court with them for support and provide long-term assistance to that victim. Most importantly, we will listen to the victim, assess their danger level and inform the victim of all the options they have available and let the victim make the decision of what is best for her. We work with West Tennessee Legal Services in the event they need legal assistance provided by the lawyer. WRAP also works closely with the District Attorney’s Office to assist them when their case goes to court. If the victim is not ready to assist in prosecuting the case, we don’t want to push her. Often, a victim needs to weigh the risks and benefits of pursuing court actions. WRAP and West Tennessee Legal Services can assist in making the decision. In working towards a violence free community, WRAP provides prevention programs to individuals of all ages and ensures accessibility

Pictured left to right standing: Anita Bosch, Crockett County WRAP Advocate, Donelda Arview, Haywood County WRAP Advocate, and Didi Christie, Domestic Violence Attorney at West Tennessee Legal Services. of its services to all free of charge. If someone does not realize they are in an unhealthy relationship how can we expect them to change? Violence Prevention Education is offered to schools, churches and other agencies that target youth. Girls and women ages 16-24 are most likely to be abused in a dating relationship. One in three teens reports knowing a friend or peer who has been hit, punched, kicked, slapped or physically hurt by their dating partner. The presence of violence in a teenager’s life dramatically increases her likelihood of engaging in other risky behaviors such as binge drinking, drug abuse and suicide attempts. Our agency, through education, helps teens develop and maintain healthy relationships. The National Network to End Domestic Violence

reports that eight million children witness acts of domestic violence each ear. A home where any type of abuse occurs is frightening, unhealthy and can be devastating to a child. Children who witness domestic violence are at an increased risk of long-term psychological and emotional problems. What can you do if you know or suspect someone is a victim of domestic violence? One of the best pieces of advice is to believe her according to Calista Joyce, Program Coordinator at WRAP. If you know her partner, remember that abusers often act different in public. Build on her strengths and validate her feelings. Point out ways in which she has learned to cope, solve problems and show strength and courage. Validate her feelings and avoid “victim blaming.” The abuse is not her fault.

Tell them to seek help from our agency to help sort out their feelings and help develop an effective safety plan. Any victim can call our hotline day or night

at 1-800-273-8712. All services are free and kept confidential. Counselors can provide information on what other services are available in that county, or just listen.

Congratulations Steve Royce Bell When Steve Royce Bell arrived at Fire Station #10 in the Douglass Community on Saturday, October 20, he had no idea what was in store for him. He came early thinking he was just doing his part for the fundraiser planned. However, later in the day, under the leadership of James Houston Boyd, he was surprised by the group naming him “Firefighter of the Year,” an honor so deserving of Steve. Steve is the son of Joy Lewis, who is a regular of our fellowship group, and the late William Royce Bell, who passed earlier that morning. In the midst of his loss, he kept his commitment, which is a true testament of his character.

Steve Royce Bell named District 10 “Firefighter of the Year”

Seymour named “Youth of the Month”

Jayden Seymour, son of Lakeshia Jarrett, was chosen as the September “Youth of the Month” at the Boys & Girls Club of Brownsville. Jayden is an eight-year-old, third grade honor roll student at Haywood Elementary School, where his favorite subject is math. Last year Jayden received an award for making honor roll the entire year. Jayden was chosen because he exhibits exemplary behavior and/or performance by always having a positive attitude and using excellent manners. Jayden enjoys playing basketball and baseball, drawing and building with Legos.

Family members present were: daughters Erin Barnett, Whitney Bell (fiancé Daniel Butts), daughter-inlaw Stephanie Bell, wife of his son Bradley Bell, a marine now stationed in Afghanistan. Also brother, Bob Bell and wife Denita from Melbourne, Florida, grandchildren, K.K. Barnett, Allye Barnett, Ryleigh and future firefighter Brayden Bell, nephews Brandon and Matthew Bell and a very dear friend, Wanda Alexander. Congratulations Steve Royce from your fellow firefighters at Station #10 and Booster Club members: Mom, Joy Lewis, Gussie WhiteMask, Wanda Alexander and Edith Dancy.

Off the Beaten Path with Jerry Wilson

Fall Fest reflections Fall Fest 2012 in Brownsville has come and gone and it appears to be another successful year. There will be a very short time for the Fall Fest team to take a break before work begins on Fall Fest 2013. It was the first time during my years of association with the festival that I had other obligations during the day. In past years, I would have been there into the wee hours of Friday night and very early Saturday morning. This year, I had a Saturday morning appointment at the church in Whiteville that started my day at about 6:30 a.m. On my way to Whiteville, I drove by the edge of downtown and noticed all the activity already going on. Many volunteers arrived on the scene at about 4: a.m. in order to get ready for the day. We had another successful stew cookoff at Whiteville United Methodist Church and I excused myself at about 9: a.m. in order to get back and prepare for the wedding of Chasity Scott and Stephen McClure at the church of my younger days in the Bethel Community. It was a beautiful wedding and Bethel Church never looked better and brighter with their recently installed

stain glass windows and new carpet. The wedding was extra nice and I was able to fellowship with friends before returning to Brownsville to work my shift at the Fall Fest. David Smith, the Singing Fireman, caught the early shift and I would be relieving him at around 4: p.m. I made the trip back to Brownsville with time to spare or so I thought. I drove around the perimeters of the Fall Fest for what seemed like hours searching for a place to park at least within walking distance. I finally did, that is, for someone in their twenties or thirties but not someone my age. After finally parking somewhere between Brownsville Funeral Home and what seemed about five miles east of Stanton, I began my journey to the festival area. I hurried my pace somewhat in order to meet my commitment. I was nearing the south stage when approached by a lady for assistance. It seems that she was having much difficulty folding her grandchild’s stroller and asked for my help. I realized honoring her request would throw me a few minutes late but David would be more than willing to cover until I could get

there. She pointed me toward the stroller and I could not believe my eyes. That was by far the largest and most complicated baby stroller that I have ever seen. Heck, I had a Volkswagen Bug in the 1960s that wasn’t much larger and didn’t have nearly as many buttons and levers. There were blue buttons and yellow levers and red buttons and black levers. I took my chance and turned one of the levers and the handles moved from the back to the front. I turned the level in another direction and the handles moved from the front to the back. I was becoming more and more frustrated and confused. I could not bring myself to the point of touching another lever or pressing another button. It would just be my luck that such action would lead to a complete disassembly of the stroller with parts rolling all over Main Street or something even worse. My first impression was to set out in search of a fifth grader. I’m certain one would have been more than suitable for the task. Since one could not be located, I ran across a young festival volunteer who came forward to meet the challenge and all ended well.

What a great weekend! I had an absolutely amazing weekend! Friday evening, Chuck and I took the kids, plus Sarah’s BFF (as she calls her), shopping in Jackson. Jacob’s feet grew overnight, and he needed a new pair of tennis shoes. He also decided he needed a new pair of boots like his big cousin Ethan, since he’s “a big boy now.” We had a nice dinner, and of course mommy had to sneak in a little “retail therapy.” My Saturday morning started off with a hot cup of coffee, and getting to watch my favorite little man play soccer. He absolutely loves the game, and is so enthusiastic about playing. His little eyes light up as soon as he starts to put on his uniform, and he grins from ear to ear the entire time he’s out there. After soccer, we were all starving, so I let the kids choose lunch. I should’ve known they’d choose McDonald’s. Three happy meals later, we were headed to take Sarah’s friend home

and make our way up to the Hatchie Fall Fest. I had to work, and so did Chuck, but I didn’t want them to miss out on all of the fun, so they worked with mommy for a couple of hours. When they were absolutely worn out, they got to go to Nannie and Grandpa’s house for the rest of the day so mommy could keep working. By the time I made it back home that night, I was exhausted, and so were my babies. A couple cups of hot chocolate (with colored mini-marshmallows, of course) later, they were in bed. Sunday afternoon we went to my parent’s house to celebrate my mother’s birthday a day early. I think out of all of the weekend’s activities, I enjoyed that afternoon the most. Me, my kids and my two nephews played outside for a couple hours. We played hide-and-seek until we ran out of spots to hide. Then we played in the tree house until Ethan, my oldest nephew,

decided to pick a fight with me by throwing leaves. I spent the next hour rolling around on the ground with four kids jumping on me and throwing leaves at me. I honestly haven’t had that much fun in a while! I hated when it was time for us to go, but I was completely exhausted, not to mention covered in dirt and tiny pieces of leaves. So, even though I ended up exhausted after all of the weekend’s activities, it was one of the best weekends I have had in a while.

Peeples

By 28th Judicial District Circuit Court Judge Clayburn Peeples

Just You and I I was driving down the highway the other day when the Eddie Rabbit/Crystal Gayle song, “You and I” (“Just You and I”) came on the radio. Great song; really bad grammar. It should be, of course, “Just you and me”,but songwriters get to break grammatical rules with impunity if they need to, and often when they don’t. It’s called poetic license, and it is sometimes considered necessary to express a thought in a natural or inspired way that is just not possible when using “correct” grammar. And I guess whoever wrote the song thought “Just you and me” was not as mellifluous as “Just you and I”, and maybe he was right, so we’ll have to give him a pass on it. But not so for the rest of us, and others, increasingly, are using the phrase incorrectly. You hear it regularly in songs and movie titles, in writing, and even on the evening news. Even our president, a Harvard graduate no less, fell into this trap shortly after he was elected. “President Bush,” he said, “graciously invited Michelle and I to meet with him . . .” Well just between us, when someone invites you and another person to a meeting, you should say, “She invited her and me.” Now that’s small change, you might say, and it is, but just as trifling sums add up eventually to great fortunes, small grammatical errors, compounded by frequent use over time, will do horrible damage to our language. And our grammar is definitely getting worse. Or, as a young person said, not too long ago, “People speak, like, really bad, you know?” Yes, unfortunately, we do.

Brownsville

you know.” And in spite of what the sign in the supermarket says, (“Ten items or less.”) don’t forget to use fewer, rather than less, when speaking of things can be counted. Less sugar; fewer cups of coffee. And whatever you do, don’t use went when you should have said gone, as in, “I should have went to church Sunday.” People won’t say anything to you if you make that mistake, but almost to a person, they will be saying to themselves, “Oh my goodness.” Finally, and this one is admittedly tough, try to use the irregular verbs, lie and lay, correctly. When you put something on the table, you lay it down. When you recline on a bed, you lie down. “Take the package and lay it on the table so I can lie down on the bed.” But it gets even trickier. The past tense of lie is lay. Confusing, isn’t it? “I’d like to lie in the same spot where I lay yesterday, the same place I have lain (past participle of lie) many other times.” And the past tense of lay, as in putting something down? It’s laid. “I laid the box on the table in the same place I have laid (past participle of lay) it before.” So how did I do at explaining that? Not so good, huh? I’m afraid I may have laid an egg with this column. Or should that be “lain an egg?” No, I’m pretty sure it’s laid. Oh, good grief! Just forget I mentioned it.

And in addition to the attrition of our culture such language lapses cause, they also do damage to the individuals uttering them. How so? Glad you asked. First of all, bad grammar might just keep you from getting a good job. In a recent survey of corporate hiring managers, 75 percent of them said spelling or grammatical errors on an applicant’s application were even worse than showing up late for an interview or using profanity. Hard to believe, but that’s what they said. No matter what audience you are addressing, unless it is a bunch of “hip” kids, bad grammar will impress listeners negatively. While it might be considered cool to use improper grammar in some quarters, in most situations, it matters. It matters a lot. Take personal relationships as just one example. Bad grammar is a turnoff. It’s the linguistic equivalent of having ketchup on your chin. Don’t do it! Don’t say “don’t” when you should say “doesn’t”, as in, “She don’t care about us.” Don’t say “I’m going to bring potato salad to the pot luck supper.” You take things to the supper. You bring the dishes back. Bring it here. Take it there. Can I be frank here? Not if I want to be correct. I should have said, “May I be frank? When you are asking permission, you use the word may. Can refers to ability or capability. “May I play golf with you? I can play golf,

Miss Mathis and Mr Thornton to wed

BROWNSVILLE BUSINESS By JOEY CONNER There are multiple things you need to look for when buying a home The most important thing to look for is the location of the home. If you love the location you will be able to adapt or fix other things that you may not like about the house. Also consider if you like the neighbors, is the area noisy, how much traffic is on the street or road and so on. The view of the home also makes a big difference in some buyer’s opinion. Secondly, if it is a home you want, can you afford it? Many people get caught up in the house and don’t

look at reality. Even though rates are at all time lows and this is a great time to buy you should consider if something happened financially would you still be able to maintain your home. Third, ask yourself does this house fit me & My family? Make sure that the home is big enough for you, your family & Friends if you like to entertain. “Does this home bring out my personality?� Is another great question to ask yourself. Even if you invest in homes I think you should consider this question. Also when choosing

a realtor, make sure that they are knowledgeable about the market and different financial opportunities that may be beneficial to you. Always take your wish list & Budget to your realtor that way they can search for homes that will meet your needs. Also, be able to compromise because it’s hard to find everything you want in one house. Make sure your realtor looks after your needs and not just the sale. I’ve always told Tara that if you treat people right the sale will come!! It may not come from the people you were working with but it will come.

Weekly Devotional Jesus said, “Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple.” (Luke 14:27). It is common to think of “cross-bearing” as the everyday trials we endure. We often hear, “that is his cross to bear.” However, the people who heard Jesus’ statement knew exactly what He meant. It was very common to see a man carrying a cross, accompanied by Roman soldiers. When you saw this, you knew what it meant. That man was a dead man. He was condemned and sentenced to die by execution. The cross didn’t mean hardship, it didn’t mean trial…it meant death. To be Christ’s disciple meant to die. Now imagine this…If Jesus showed up and said, “Do you want to go to heaven?” Almost everyone would say, “absolutely.” And this is the reaction that most give. But what if Jesus showed up and said, “Follow me out this door and we are going to the electric chair together.” Would you still follow? What if He said, “Follow me out this door and everyone in your family will hate you for the rest of your life.” Would you follow? Jesus makes it clear that you cannot follow him without taking up your cross. “So therefore, any one of you who does not renounce all that he has cannot be my disciple.” (v. 33).

Hometown Hero Chris Lea BY JENNIFER WILLIS jwillis@statesgraphic. com Chris Lea is, without a doubt, one of the most dedicated individuals that I have ever met. He has a true love for this community, and a real passion for helping to ensure that it remains a great place to live. I have received numerous nominations for Lea to be featured in this spotlight, and almost all of the people who nominated him shared the same opinion: he’s a good person who genuinely cares about this community and the people who live in it. Lea was born in Haywood County to the late Joe Lea, Jr. and the late Linda Thomas Brummett, June 14, 1967. He has spent his entire life in this community, and began serving its people even before he graduated high school. In 1984, he began working part-time at Brownsville Funeral Home. After he graduated from Haywood High School in 1985, it turned into a full-time job. “In 1987, I was walking around town delivering funeral notices, when Dan Singleton pulled up beside me and asked me if I wanted to be a cop,” said Lea. Singleton told him there was an opening, Lea applied, and he went to work for the Brownsville Police Department July 1, 1987. He stayed on parttime at Brownsville Funeral Home. Two years later, Lea went through specialized training in Memphis, and became the first canine officer at the Brownsville Police Department. In 1992, Lea decided to attend Jackson State Community College and earn his EMT-IV. He went to work for the Haywood County Ambulance Authority in 1992, and also accepted a position as a full time deputy with the Haywood County Sheriff’s Department. Four years later, Lea changed career paths, and went to work for the Brownsville Fire Department. He also remained a part-time deputy at the sheriff’s department until he was named fire chief in 1998. He served in that position until he joined the Tennessee Highway Patrol in 2002. Lea worked as a road trooper during the first year he was with THP. He was then reassigned to CIRT4, which is a critical incident response team that uses forensics to reconstruct crashes that involve multiple fatalities or vehicular homicides. Lea was responsible for 22 counties in West Tennessee, and traveled from the Mississippi to the Tennessee River, and from the border of Kentucky down to the border of Mississippi reconstructing accidents. “When my phone rang, I knew it was the worst of the worst,”

said Lea. He was classified as a certified expert on crash reconstruction, and has given expert testimony in many trials involving traffic accidents. Lea remained with the THP until November 2009 when he was appointed as Chief of Police at the Brownsville Police Department, a position he still holds today. One of the first things that Lea said to me when I asked him if he would be willing to let me interview him was, “The men on the front lines deserve the recognition, not me. They are the ones who work long hours, holidays and weekends.” Lea wholeheartedly believes the men who work for him are some of the most dedicated individuals you’ll find. “They make my job of running this department a lot easier,” said Lea. “It’s also great to have such a supportive mayor and board of aldermen.” Lea and his brother, Jody, along with Elliott Simmons, opened Lea and Simmons Funeral Home in 2009. Lea believes it’s one of the best jobs he’s had. “Being able to comfort a family during the hardest of times is extremely important to me,” said Lea. “We do all family visitations and funerals ourselves, because we want to make sure that we are there for a family when they need us.” Lea is currently a member of the Rotary Club, and is a board member for Central Dispatch, Haywood Park Community Hospital, the Haywood County Animal Shelter and the Rescue Squad. He is a chairman for the Haywood County Jail committee, and a vice-chairman for the Haywood County Public Safety Committee. He is

also currently serving his second term as a County Commissioner. “There are good and bad things that go on in this county,” said Lea, “and you can either choose to sit back and do nothing, or choose to be involved. I choose to be involved. It is our investment in this community that will ensure our next generation will thrive. I have lived here all of my life, and have absolutely no desire to live anywhere else. My involvement is my investment in my kids, my family and my community.” Lea and his wife, Tracey, live on a farm just outside of town. They have five horses, two donkeys and a couple of cats and dogs. They have four children: Emma Lea, Joseph Lea,

Taylor Call and Blake Call. Lea and his family are active members at New Vision Baptist Church. During the course of our interview, Lea explained to me how much his wife’s support means to him, and how important he thought it was that I included it in this story. “It takes a strong woman to be able to handle what Tracey handles,” said Lea. “I get called out all of the time, whether it be for the police department or the funeral home, and I have a lot of meetings to attend after work. Tracey is always so supportive and understanding, and she will never know how much it means to me that she stands beside me. I love her, and I couldn’t do all of this without her support. I want her to know that.”

Teachers at HMS honored by Walmart Teacher Rewards Program 20 educators awarded funding to offset classroom expenses during ceremony On October 23, Walmart awarded 20 Haywood Middle School teachers with $50 reward cards to purchase classroom supplies that will help students start the school year off right. As part of the Teacher Rewards Program, the local educators were honored during an awards ceremony at Haywood Middle School. In its fourth year, Teacher Rewards will donate up to $4.5 million to provide 90,000 teachers across the United States with reward cards that will help offset the cost of classroom expenses.

These funds come at a critical time, as the majority of U.S. teachers going back to school will spend their own money to ensure their students have the supplies they need to learn throughout the school year. More than 4,600 U.S. Walmart stores, Distribution Centers and Sam’s Club locations are eligible to select one local kindergarten through eighth grade public school and provide reward cards for 20 teachers from the selected school. Winning teachers can use the funds to purchase essential items

for their classrooms such as paper, folders, binders, clipboards, pens, pencils, crayons and markers. “We are proud to honor our community’s teachers, who give time and often their own money to ensure our students have everything the need to be successful throughout the school year,” said Walmart’s Tonya Adams. “At Walmart, we are dedicated to supporting our nation’s teachers by providing them with the support and resources needed to continue educating the future leaders of our country.”

The Teacher Rewards Program is an extension of Walmart’s ongoing support of education initiatives that help students better prepare for their future. In 2010, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation made a historic two billion dollar commitment to help end hunger in America, which includes support for backpack, summer and afterschool feeding programs for kids. In 2011, Walmart and its Foundation donated more than $50 million to fund education programs across the country. The 20 teachers who

received $50 gift cards were: Taylor Wilson, Mindy Jones, Latisha King, Kevin Doan, Rachel Dryer, Ray Clark, Ernie Jackson, Dana Hobock, Rhonda Jones, Maxie Nelson, Shelia Turner, William Grissom, Shelia Turner, Shaquana Leonard, Jimmy Wilson, Tami Roland, Greg Bontrager, Charita Adams, Lashell Evans and Star Dunning. All of the staff at Haywood Middle School were treated to cake and punch following the awards ceremony.

Haywood County Collaborative to Receive $648,375 in GEAR Grant to Help Students Receive College Education (NASHVILLE, TN), October 24, 2012 – Senate Education Committee Chairman Dolores Gresham (R-Somerville) said today a Haywood County Collaborative will receive a grant to help students “GEAR UP” for success in college. The federal Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness (GEAR) grant comes from the Tennessee Higher Education Commission

(THEC) and is designed to help students receive a postsecondary education. It provides students with direct services, including mentoring, tutoring, college visits, and financial aid counseling. “I am very pleased to hear Haywood County was chosen for this post-secondary grant program,” said Senator Gresham. “This will help us in our efforts to give our students

more opportunities to receive a college education. It also dovetails with our Complete College Tennessee goals to graduate more students from post-secondary schools. This will not only give students the skills they need to receive higher paying jobs, but is also a powerful economic development tool to bring new jobs to our communities.” Each GEAR UP TN

Collaborative includes at least one priority high school, one middle school, a higher education institution, the local board of education, and at least two community-based partners. The Collaboratives were chosen through a competitive grant proposal process. Award amounts were determined by the number of students to be served in each direct service

school. The Haywood County Collaborative will receive $648,375. According to THEC, GEAR UP Tennessee will serve a cohort of 7,500 students in the Class of 2018, along with 5,000 graduating seniors each year through 2019. A total of over 37,500 students at 83 schools will be directly served during the seven years of federal funding.

Hatchie Fall Fest

BY JENNIFER WILLIS jwillis@statesgraphic.com

The 9th annual Hatchie Fall Fest was held Saturday, October 20, and saw a few changes this year. One of the main concerns with residents was whether it would interfere with early voting, which is done at the courthouse where the

Sheriff’s Department used to be. West Main Street was not shut down this year like it was last year, and therefore the festival did not interfere with early voting. Also new this year was the addition of another stage for entertainment. There was a stage set up on East Main Street, and another on South

Lafayette. Entertainers performed on both stages all day, with Mickey Utley headlining on Main and Roses Unread headlining on Lafayette. Besides live entertainment, visitors also enjoyed a variety of vendors. There were many food vendors serving crowd favorites like corndogs and funnel

cakes. Some sold jewelry, some sold purses and others sold handmade wreaths and burlap door hangers. There were several vendors who sold homemade pies and cakes, and one who sold handmade quilts. Many local businesses also participated in the event. The children who attended seemed to be

A10 Thursday, October 25, 2012 particularly drawn to the huge inflatable slide, the bounce house and the bull-riding attraction. There were several activities associated with the Fall Fest during the day, including a frozen t-shirt contest, a hot salsa eating contest, the Marla Angotti Memorial 5k/10k, a pie/ cake baking contest, a pet contest and a “blessing of

the pets” ceremony. Sonia Outlaw-Clark, director of the West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center, said, “It was a team effort by a lot of dedicated individuals that helped to make this year’s Hatchie Fall Fest a success. We had a great time, and look forward to celebrating our tenth anniversary next year.”

Keep an Eye on Your Eye Health These days, 60 is the new 40. A few worry lines and gray hairs aren’t stopping baby boomers from staying active and redefining retirement. But along with the benefits of active lifestyles, older Americans are feeling the pains of “boomeritis,” as the warranty on some body parts runs low. One body part significantly affected as we age is the eye. For some, this means holding the newspaper at arm’s length, or giving up night driving. Yet, many overlook eye health. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, only half the estimated 61 million adults at high risk for serious vision loss visited an eye care professional in the last year. Fortunately, you can protect your eyes, and even reverse signs of eye aging with a few simple steps. • Everyone 50 or older should get yearly comprehensive eye exams. This allows for detection of eye diseases in early stages, before you experience vision problems, some of which may be permanent. • Adults over 50 should be mindful of symptoms of common age-related eye diseases,

such as cataracts, the leading cause of reversible blindness in the U.S. Blurry vision and needing more light to read even while wearing glasses can be early signs. With a cataract, the eye’s lens becomes cloudy, allowing less light to pass through, making vision blurry. In early stages, symptoms may not hold you back, but vision may worsen as the cataract grows. It’s important to get examined as soon as you notice changes in vision, even if they seem minor. In later stages, you may experience poor night vision, colors looking dull, difficulty with glares or halos, and double vision. Cataracts are more treatable than ever. That’s good news, considering half of all Americans will be diagnosed with cataracts by age 80. “In the U.S. alone, cataract affects over 24 million Americans 40 and older,” says Richard J. Mackool, M.D., director, Mackool Eye Institute, and senior attending surgeon, New York Eye and Ear Institute. About 3 million people have cataracts removed in the U.S. each year, making it one of the most common proce-

dures. The eye’s cloudy lens is removed and replaced with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL). Traditional IOLs can correct distance vision, but new advanced technology IOLs can also help correct preexisting eye conditions like astigmatism and age-related

presbyopia. These new IOLs can potentially eliminate the need for glasses. Baby boomers don’t have to accept deteriorating vision as a natural part of aging and give up favorite hobbies. “Cataract removal has a very high success rate. Most people

can return to normal routines within 24 hours,” notes Dr. Mackool. Seniors should talk to their doctors and visit the National Institutes of Health National Eye Institute website, www. nei.nih.gov, to learn about cataracts and treatment options.

Keep Your Home Safe from Allergens this Season The weather may be getting cooler, but that doesn’t mean people who are impacted by allergens are in the clear. From dust and dander to seasonal pollen, millions of people will sneeze, wheeze and cough their way through the months ahead. The experts at Sun Products, makers of Snuggle, all and Wisk laundry products, offer these steps to help make your home a safer haven from that which afflicts you. Bust Dust Allergens are hiding all over the home. Regular dusting and vacuuming will eliminate much of the problem. Just be sure to clean your vacuum filter often. And don’t overlook fabrics in your home like upholstered chairs and drapes, as dust, mites and other allergens can collect here easily. Don’t suffer while cleaning. Use a mask to avoid coming into contact with the allergens you’re trying to eliminate. Wash Safely The irony of keeping your

home spic and span for the sake of allergy management is that many cleaning supplies can aggravate the problem. Ammonia, for example, can be quite harsh on the eyes and nose. Using a hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, all-purpose cleaner will make scrubbing the bathroom and kitchen a much more pleasant experience. Likewise, bedding and clothing are notorious for collecting and trapping common allergens. According to a study by Grana, an international science journal, a large t-shirt can trap up to 7 million pollen grains on a peak pollen day. Remove everyday allergens trapped in your garments and bedding with a fragrance free detergent designed for sensitive skin. For example, all free clear detergent, which is the number one detergent brand recommended by dermatologists and allergists for sensitive skin, will eliminate 99 percent of tree and grass pol-

len, and ragweed pollen, the number one fall allergen. Free of potential irritants like dyes and perfumes, it will also help bust pet dander and dust mite matter. More information can be found at www.all-laundry. com/freeclear/. Keep Allergens Out When you walk around outside your clothes can collect and absorb allergens and irritants. Shoes are magnets for grass, tree and ragweed pollen. Leave your shoes on the porch, especially after walking through grass. Change out of your clothes when you get home, depositing them directly into the hamper. Stay Vigilant You can stay informed with pollen-level maps and recent allergen news. Visit the all free clear Facebook page for allergy resources and management tips. Get a handle on your sniffles and congestion this season by freeing your home of allergens.

Chronic Cough or Cold Could Be COPD: Learn More, Breathe Better You may have heard the term COPD before -- either in a radio or television commercial. COPD, short for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, is a serious lung disease that over time makes it hard to breathe. Also known as emphysema or chronic bronchitis, it is the third leading cause of death in the United States, but as many as 12 million Americans don’t even know they have it. Unfortunately, symptoms are often shrugged off as a normal part of getting older or a consequence of being out of shape. And during cold and flu season, COPD symptoms can also be mistaken for that cold or cough that just won’t go away. But COPD can be a dangerous health hazard. If left untreated, it can have debilitating effects on everyday activities. Affecting one in five adults in the U.S. over the age of 45 and an estimated 24 million Americans, as many as half remain undiagnosed.

In people who have COPD, the airway tubes that carry air in and out of your lungs are partially blocked, making it hard to breathe. The disease develops slowly and usually worsens over time. So don’t ignore the first signs of COPD, which include a chronic cough, hacking, wheezing and shortness of breath. COPD occurs most often in people age 40 and over with a history of smoking, affecting both current and former smokers. However, as many as one out of six people with COPD have never smoked. Other risk factors include long-term exposure to second hand smoke, certain chemicals, and dust or fumes in the workplace. In some people, COPD can be caused by a genetic condition known as alpha-1 antitrypsin, or AAT, deficiency. “While there is no cure for COPD -- early diagnosis and treatment can help people with the disease im-

prove their symptoms and get back to the things they love doing,” said James P. Kiley, PhD. Director, Division of Lung Diseases, at the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health. “As we head into the colder months, take the first step to breathing better. Learn more about COPD and schedule an appointment to talk with your doctor or health care provider about your lungs.” COPD can usually be diagnosed by a doctor or health care provider during a regular office visit with a simple, non-invasive breathing test called spirometry. If you or a loved one experiences any of the symptoms of COPD, take some time to learn more about it. Visit http://COPD.nhlbi.nih. gov for more information. With proper diagnosis and treatment, people with COPD can live longer and improve their quality of life.

Eight Tips to Stay Healthy this Flu Season (StatePoint) Flu season is upon us, bringing with it new strains of the virus. So now is the time to brush up on all the flu-fighting facts. Here are eight wellness tips to help keep you and your family in tip-top shape – from what behaviors to avoid, to how homeopathic treatment can help: 1. Know your risk: Seniors, children under age 5 and pregnant women are at high-risk for developing complications from flu, as well as those with asthma, heart disease and weak-

ened immune systems. Seek professional advice on your risk factors. 2. Wash your hands: Flu viruses are spread by droplets from infected people when they sneeze, blow their nose, or wipe secretions from their nose or eyes. Keep your hands out of your mouth, avoid rubbing your eyes and thoroughly wash your hands several times daily. Avoid alcohol and chemical-based hand sanitizers, instead opting for soap and water or a natural, essentialoil based hand cleanser.

3. Eat wisely: Foods containing vitamins C and E are believed to support the immune system. So stock up on sunflower seeds, almonds, citrus fruits, broccoli and green peppers. Limit your intake of concentrated sugar found in soda and candy, as it impairs immune response. 4. Sleep tight: Lack of sleep may profoundly inhibit your immune system. A full night’s sleep will keep your body’s natural defenses at optimum efficiency. 5. Stay hydrated:

Staying hydrated will lessen your chances of coming down with flu. When you’re under the weather, drink extra fluids to loosen mucus, keep your throat moist, and prevent dehydration caused by fever. 6. Nip it in the bud, safely: Reduce the duration and severity of flulike symptoms by listening to your body when you feel achy or run down. Don’t wait until you’re “sick enough” to act. If you’re concerned about side effects, drowsiness and drug interactions, opt for a natural homeopathic medicine like Oscillococcinum, which is clinically supported. It has no known side effects

and is safe for everyone ages 2 and up, including seniors. Keeping something like this on hand can help you treat yourself sooner, allowing you to rest rather than trek to the store. “The key is to watch for symptoms and be prepared to act quickly with a complicationfree treatment,” says Lawrence Rosen, MD in his newly published book “Treatment Alternatives for Children.” Read more natural tips from his book at www. L a w re n c e R o s e n M D . com. 7. Exercise regularly: A recent study reported in the journal “Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise”

found that modest exercise may prevent the elderly from getting colds and flu. 8. Seek help if you get worse: The flu can be potentially dangerous, leading to other infections like pneumonia. If your symptoms become significantly worse after the first three days of illness, especially if your fever subsides and then returns, seek medical attention. More flu facts and health tips can be found at www.oscillo.com. Help yourself stay healthy this season through prevention and by treating symptoms before they get the best of you.

Patient thanks HCAA for saving her life BY JENNIFER WILLIS jwillis@statesgraphic.com

going to make it the rest of the way home. Brenda managed to make it home, but still had no idea the seriousness of her situation. It didn’t take long before her speech problem worsened. “I could hear the questions my friend was asking me, and I knew the answer, but I couldn’t speak at all,” said Brenda. At that point her friend called for help, and an ambulance was sent to her home. EMT’s Joe Powell and J.P. Moses were at Brenda’s home within a few minutes. Upon arrival, Powell and Moses immediately knew something was wrong. “It took us 30 seconds to realize she was having a stroke,” said Moses. “She was unable to walk or talk, and had a complete deficit on the left side of her face.” They called for back-up. Paramedic Dustin McKeel and EMT Justin Moser arrived a few minutes later. At the time Brenda’s weight, which was close to 700 pounds, prevented them from taking her out the closest exit. Instead, they had to work their way through her home and exit through the front door. As McKeel climbed in the back of the ambulance with Brenda, Moses made a “neuro alert “call to Jackson-Madison County General Hospital. When the hospital receives that call, they automatically send down a neuro physician and nurse to wait for a patient’s arrival. McKeel held Brenda’s hand the entire ride to

Brenda Blue-Recio returned to the Haywood County Ambulance Authority last week to thank the men she believes helped save her life a few months ago. She couldn’t hold back her tears during our interview, and truth be told, I had an extremely hard time holding back tears myself… Brenda woke up on a Sunday morning in late July with the intention of having a normal day. She got herself up, had her breakfast and then headed to church at True Love Tabernacle of Praise Ministry. At some point during Sunday morning services, Brenda noticed her face drawing to the left side. “It felt as if my face was pulling, and it was really tight,” she said. “I kept trying to stretch my mouth thinking that I must have had a muscle spasm, but nothing worked.” Her pastor, Sam T. Manns, and some of the other members of her congregation noticed her struggling. Her speech was a little slow, and her vision was slightly blurred. “My pastor and some of my friends from church immediately gathered around me and started praying,” said Brenda. “After a few minutes my mouth seemed to loosen up, and one of my friends offered to drive me home.” Brenda chose to drive herself home, and agreed to let a friend follow her. She remembers stopping at one of the intersections on the by-pass and wondering if she was

Pictured left to right: J.P. Moses, Brenda Blue-Recio and Joe Powell. Jackson. When Brenda arrived at JMCGH, she went straight into Trauma 3. The physician who tended to Brenda ordered a CT scan, and determined she had suffered an ischemic stroke. He placed her at a nine on the stroke scale, which is a scale used to determine the severity of a stroke, and runs from zero to ten. Brenda was given “clot busting” medications immediately. Amazingly, within an hour she began to feel normal. She slowly regained her speech, and her face began to look normal. After a week’s stay in the hospital, Brenda returned home, with no long lasting effects from the stroke. “It is very likely that Brenda would not have survived had she waited

much longer to call for help,” said Moses. “At the least she would have been completely paralyzed, bed bound and required 24-hour nursing care,” said Powell. Brenda believes that it was the fast response of Moses, Powell, McKeel and Moser that saved her life. “God puts everybody in your life for a reason,” said Brenda. “They’re lifesavers. Everybody can’t do what they do, and I believe they are a blessing. They were genuine. I don’t believe they do what they do for the paychecks they get. I believe they love people.” To show her gratitude, Brenda returned bearing gifts for the men. She thanked them repeatedly, and made sure they understood

exactly how much they mean to her. “People are so fast to call when something is wrong, and I like to call when somebody does something right,” said Brenda. “They saved my life, and I wanted to thank them for that. I don’t have much, but I felt I need to do something.” Since Brenda’s illness, she has lost nearly 200 pounds, and is receiving treatment for a condition she has called lymphodemia, which causes large tumors to grow on her legs. She is currently suffering from an 80-pound tumor on one of her legs. I asked Moses and Powell what it meant to them to have a patient return and thank them. Moses said, “It’s amazing because it so rarely happens.

I’m not in this for the gratitude, I’m in it to help people, but it is an amazing feeling for her to come back and tell us thank you for making a difference in her life.” Powell said, “It makes me feel like what I’m doing matters, like it has purpose.” Director Jimmy Studdard said, “All of the employees here are very dedicated, and like I said before, I’d put them up against any in the state. We have a good crew here.” Brenda wants to ask everybody who reads this story to keep the men and women at the Haywood County Ambulance Authority in your prayers, and says she will continue to ask God to watch over the special people who make such a difference in the lives of others.

Photo by Jeff Ireland Haywood quarterback Bryce Young drops back to pass Friday night in Troy during the third quarter of the Tomcats' 53-14 District 13-AA win over Obion County Central.

Haywood routs Obion, keeps playoff hopes alive By JEFF IRELAND jireland@statesgraphic.com A large crowd showed up in Troy on Friday night, many of whom were probably on hand hoping for a repeat of last year's 56-6 Obion County Central win over Haywood. Those fans left the stadium disappointed and, like many of the Rebel players, probably a little shell shocked. The Tomcats' offense moved the ball at will, raced to a 34-7 halftime lead and went on to a lopsided 53-14 District 13-AAA win. Haywood improved to 3-6 with the win and kept its playoff hopes alive. According to the Tennessee Secondary Athletic Association's Class 4A playoff standings released earlier this week, the Tomcats are just slots below the final playoffqualifying team. The format includes 16 different playoff-making criteria. And with several games across the state being

played tomorrow night that could shake up the standings, it's impossible to say for sure if Haywood will qualify with a win tomorrow night at Milan. But one thing is for sure: a loss means the end of the season. “I've looked at it,” said Haywood coach Slade Calhoun. “I think if we win we're in. If a four-win team gets in, it'll be us.” Milan (7-2) beat Haywood 58-27 last year. The Bulldogs' only two losses this season have come against Covington and South Gibson, both of which are undefeated. But Haywood, which went 1-9 last year, has shown the ability to compete with just about everybody on its schedule this year. “I think the kids feel pretty good about it (the Milan game),” Calhoun said. “We scored 27 points on them last year, including 14 in the first quarter. They only scored 19 on South Gibson (this year)

and we scored 34 on them … Defense has been our bugaboo though. We've gotta make some stops.” Haywood didn't have much trouble making stops Friday night against Obion County Central, keeping the Rebels (2-7) off the scoreboard until allowing a touchdown late in the first half. Sophomore quarterback Bryce Young had another big game for the Tomcats, completing 17 of 24 passes for 297 yards and five touchdowns and ran for 94 more. After an interception by Haywood's Shemar Powell, Young hit Martez Comage two plays later for a 37-yard TD to put Haywood ahead 14-0 with 5:38 left in the first quarter. Midway through the second period. Young hit Comage for 25 yards, setting up his own sixyard touchdown run. Later in the period he hit Quintavious Caldwell on a 25-yard touchdown pass and Darvis Jarmon on a

55-yarder to push the lead to 34-7. “I was pretty pleased with the way we played,” Calhoun said. “Any time you can score over 50, that's a good thing.” Early in the third Young threw his fourth TD pass, this one a two-yarder to Equavious Barbee. Justice Brown, who finished with 100 yards on the ground, opened Haywood's scoring with a five-yard TD run and scored again midway through the third quarter on a one-yard run. The final Haywood score came on an eight-yard pass from Young to Barbee.

Brown qualifies for state By JEFF IRELAND jireland@statesgraphic. com Haywood junior Deonte Brown was very nervous Tuesday afternoon in Troy as he prepared for the most important race of his high school career. “He told me he was feeling a lot of pressure and didn't want to let everybody down,” said Haywood cross country coach David Claybrooks. “At one point, he said, 'Coach, I'm not sure I can do this.'” He did it, and he did it well. Brown ran an 18:33 at the 3.1-mile region meet course to finish in eighth place, which was good enough to qualify

for the Class A-AA State Cross Country Meet, which will be held Nov. 3 in Nashville. He's the first Haywood Cross country runner to qualify for state since Trista Rivers in 2007. Brown was in third place for most of the race, leading the second pack of runners that included nine runners from other schools. It's a tough spot to be in with other runners working with teammates. “It's kind of like being in the ocean with sharks,” Claybrooks said. But Brown held on to finish in the top 10, which is necessary to qualify.

“He's been nervous for a while,” Claybrooks said. “He's been in the newspaper, on the radio. I was really proud of him.” Haywood seniors Joshua Wilson (27th, 20:19) and DeMarious Douglas (34th, 20:30) also competed and ran personal bests. “I'm really, really proud of my top three,” Claybrooks said. As a team, Haywood finished seventh out of 11 teams, beating out rivals Covington, Dyersburg and Peabody. “It was our best finish in 20 years,” Claybrooks said. “We missed sixth place by seven points.” The state meet begins at 3:15 p.m. at the Percy Warner Park Steeple-

chase Course.

Lady Tomcats wrap up successful season By JEFF IRELAND jireland@statesgraphic.com From 2009 to 2011, the Haywood Lady Tomcats soccer team won a combined six games. This season, under first-year head coach Mixon Moore, the team won seven. The season came to end last Thursday with an 11-0 loss to Dyersburg in the region

tournament, but there were plenty of things to be excited about in 2012. “I'm ecstatic about this season,” said Moore. “I'm so proud of them. I feel like we'll be able to compete better in the tournament next year … This is the third high school team I've worked with, and next year could be one of the best teams I've worked with. There's so much potential.”

Two of Haywood's final four losses came to Dyersburg, the region champs. On Oct. 11, which was senior night, the Lady Tomcats lost 4-1 to the Lady Trojans. Down 4-0 at the half, Haywood got a goal from Eliza Ford in the second half and held Dyersburg scoreless the rest of the way. “That was one of the best games of the year for us,”

Moore said. On Oct. 9, Haywood defeated Peabody 3-1. Ebony Clark scored in the first half and Ford scored twice in the second half, including a final goal on a penalty kick. On Oct. 22 in the first round of the region tournament, Haywood beat Peabody again, 2-1 in double overtime. The team was playing with

Kim Nieto scored Haywood's first goal and Clark tallied the game winner. “We played one girl down the whole game and found a way to get it done,” Moore said. “We've gone from a push-around team in the region to one you have to watch out for.”

Sympathy to the families of Mrs. Catherine Hampton and Mrs. Marie Browning in the loss of their loved ones. In closing, our Thought for the Week is by Marcelina Dewi Kumalasari of Indonesia. “A life centered on Christ is a successful life.” When we die we take nothing with us from this earth,. Whatever material wealth we have obtained in this life will be meaningless. Lasting accomplishment is a life characterized by deeds of love. When we live out God’s will in this way, we succeed. The day will come when each of us will be accountable before Christ for what we do in this world. If we live in ways that please God in whatever we do, that’s true success. If you have news to share, please call me at 772-1885, after 5:00 p.m. Until next week....God bless.

We hope you all let your Boss know how much you appreciate them last week on the 16th. Our staff let Diane know how much we love her by placing the ad in the paper. Thanks so much for the States Graphic to allow our staff to recognize Diane in the manner she deserved. Our residents and staff packed Christmas boxes for the Samaritan’s Purse last week. We were able to do 9 boxes. The residents loved putting everything together and getting the boxes ready for Elizabeth T to pick up. Even our men got in on the fun. Jack and Pete were right in the middle of it all. Sunday was our Fall Open House and it was a huge success. Gale Carver out did herself as usual. She made her Famous Strawberry cake, a Coconut cake, Carrot cake and a German Chocolate cake. They were all 3 layers of wonderful. One of our guest stated that some desserts aren’t worth

wasting your calories on, but the cakes Gale was serving were worth using a few days worth of calories on. She also made chicken salad sandwiches and a great punch. It was all so tasty. Our guests loved the food and all the wonderful decorations. Everyone was talking about how beautiful it always is here. We make sure to give Jessie H the credit as she is our primary decorator. Lots of guests were in attendance Sunday. One in particular was our own City Mayor, Jo Matherne. It was really nice to see her and our Mayor, Jack Fletcher greet one another. Many of our residents were greeting the guests and showing them around our fantastic facility. We are so lucky to be able to work in such a great place with the best residents around. Early voting was this week. Our residents are able to cast their votes for the candidates of their choice. How wonderful is that? Thanks so much to the voting staff that takes

their time and come out for our residents; we do so appreciate you all. Please keep Virginia Ferguson in your prayers as she is in JMCGH. Bobby P should be back this week. Everyone else seems to be doing just fine. This nurse was on vacation last week and received no phone calls or texts about anything. Thank you so much to the staff of Sugar Creek for allowing me a week with my family. I did worry about our residents but each time I started to call or text, I made myself put the phone down. It is hard to get Sugar Creek out of your mind and heart when you aren’t here. I did have a wonderful time and came back to great hugs from our residents. I am one lucky nurse to get to be a part of this wonderful place called Sugar Creek. If you haven’t ever been here you are missing out on a little piece of heaven. Come by and visit us sometime.

Crestview News We welcome Mrs. Betty Taylor to our facility, and hope she enjoys her stay with us. Thank you volunteers for coming this week: St. John’s Baptist Church, Christ Temple Ladies, First Assembly of God Church Ladies, First United Pentecostal Church, Westside Church of Christ, Mrs. Mary Barkens, Bingo Ladies and Community Temple

of the Living Church. Thank you to Westside Church of Christ members for bringing and delivering snack crackers to each of our residents on Monday night. We extend sympathy to the family of Mrs. Marie Browning. She is truly missed. We will be having our Halloween Festival on Tuesday night, October 30, from 5 p.m. until 7

p.m. Everyone is invited to come and enjoy this fun filled night. Our residents always enjoy seeing all the children dressed up in the Halloween costumes. It’s truly a “treat” for our residents to see all the children. Thought for the week: You’re getting old if it takes you longer to rest than it does to get tired.

Oh what fantastic memories! Rita Hathcock and Kathy Ward are so discombobulated these days! They both became grandparents…again… when their recent ‘grands’ were born a day apart!

Douglas News By Alvis M. Bond An appreciation breakfast was served to members of Dancyville C.M.E. Church Sunday morning by Pastor Doris Lewis for continued support. The breakfast was along with Sunday School, and the members expressed their thanks and appreciation to Rev. Lewis. The Volunteer Firemen and Boosters express their appreciation for all of the support given to them on Saturday afternoon in their fundraiser for the upkeep of Station #10 on Douglass Road in the Douglass Community.

We’re proud of those that serve, but they could use more volunteers and solicit more manpower. So let’s support them! We’re sorry to hear that one of the volunteers, Bland Delk, was hospitalized during the weekend. We pray for a speedy recovery for him. Our expressions of sympathy are extended to the families of Mrs. Marie Browning and to the family of William Royce Bell, who passed away on Saturday. He was a resident of the Douglass community for several years. Our

continued support and prayers for the sick and shut-ins: Rev. Shirley Richmond, Rev. Floyd Lewis, Edward Vaulx, Jr., Callie Brooks, Callie Langford, Betty J. Brooks, Betty Douglas, Gladys Bowles, Jimmie L. Turner, Shirley Hunter, Glen McFarland, Emma Miller, Mary N. Greer, Beatrice Chapman, Betty M. Harris, Willis Douglas, Luevenia Boyd, William “Bit” Graves and John Jones. Our prayers also for Rev. J.B. Leverette, who was not feeling well over the weekend.

Allen News By Gail Barden My youngest grandson, Autry Tyler Barden, celebrated his first birthday on Saturday, October 20 at their home in Oakland. Lots of family and friends were there to help Autry celebrate. Leah and Tyler did a great job decorating and planning for the party. We were so happy to be a part of such a special little boy’s big day. Happy Birthday, Autry! Martha Pyron spoke during the worship service Sunday morning on the subject of tithing. Our “Prove the Tithe” Sunday will be October 28. On Sunday night, October 28, there will be a Singspiration during the worship service with

Wellwood/Zion News By Denise Phillips Fall Break has come to an end and what a fabulous week we had! Jimmy Phillips celebrated his birthday from Thursday through Sunday. We traveled to our Rainey Bunch in Murfreesboro to be with our son-in-law Billy on his birthday Wednesday. Jimmy’s was Thursday so we enjoyed another meal with them to celebrate his while we were there. We left Friday and met Justin and his family at the Old Hickory Steak House in Jackson for a meal and a surprise gift (concert tickets for a later date). Jimmy’s sister, Linda Pittman who was born the same day seven years earlier came over Saturday and we traveled to Cuz’s for breakfast and then onto Reelfoot where we spent the day. We ran into Eddie and Candace Maness who sing with “His Voice” while eating catfish at one of the restaurants there. Following church Sunday, Jason and his family came over and cooked another delicious meal for us and Justin and his family joined us. Congratulations to Bobby and Mary Helen Stokely on their 50th

anniversary celebration. We did not get back in time to attend the party, but I’m sure they had a blast from the plans he shared with us at breakfast Saturday morning. Alice Elrod’s (mama) HHS graduation class met Tuesday at Backyard BBQ for their monthly gettogether. There were only six, but they had a fabulous time! Thanks to Harmony’s Pastor Grover Westover for reporting that nine attended the men’s community prayer breakfast with him leading the devotion. If anyone would like to join this faithful prayer group, they meet Thursday mornings at 6:00 in Zion’s family life center. Sunday morning at Zion Baptist Church Brother Mark had a time of testimony sharing from several members chosen in a unique way. He then used Luke 5:27-31 to introduce his sermon. His focus was on having sympathy for sinners. If we are going to follow Jesus, we must give Him the keys! Billy Wright then presented him with a “Pastor Appreciation” gift from the church. Thanks to Mitch Platz for leading

the congregational music during Rad’s absence. What an awesome service and what a delight to see Alan Outlaw back! We are taking up a special offering next Sunday for the “Mark Conway Memorial Scholarship” funds. We took up this past Sunday too, and you may also mail in your donation to the HBA just make sure you designate it. “Others Matter” was Sunday night’s focus as each Sunday school class met in homes with the focus on outreach. I’m sure everyone had a wonderful time of fellowship, but don’t know who met where. Fall Fiesta is October 27th at 4:00. Baby shower for Rachel Stewart is October 28th in the FLC at 2:00. “Robert Sean” is registered at Target and Toys r Us. Marriage retreat at the Hilton in Brentwood is November 9th – 11th. 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@ k12tn.net if you have news. People want to know!

UT Ex Extxtetension University of Tennessee Family & Consumer Science program begins month long community health survey By Walter Battle In an effort to expand its community health education programming the Haywood County office of the University of Tennessee Extension will be conducting a month long citizen health survey this November. Our target goal is to survey 200 citizens so that our office will have hard data to seek funding for programs that will assist us with providing educational seminars and classes on chronic diseases (diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer, kidney, etc…). The 3-5 minute survey (which does not ask for names) asks citizens to identify what major health concerns they feel are important to

the community and that need addressing by the University of Tennessee as well as Tennessee State University. Community health is very important. Haywood County is often a state leader in so many unhealthy indicators such as chronic disease rates. A key to addressing these issues will require innovative programs and funding. To receive funding from government health granting agencies require community data from surveys. This survey will position our office to score valuable points with grant applications. Our office is seeking volunteers to assist with distributing and collecting surveys. Assistance from

the church community would be ideal because a great emphasis will be placed on conducting healthy living seminars through churches as a way to reach a wide range of clientele. If you desire further information or would like to assist, please call the office at 772-2861 or come by 100 South Wilson Street. Office hours are Monday – Friday, 8:00am – 5:00pm. All University of Tennessee programs are offered to all eligible persons regardless of race, color, national origin, gender, age, disability, religion, or veteran status. The University of Tennessee is an Equal Opportunity Employer.

Holly Grove News By Martha H. Jones Mrs. Rachel Cox, representing Operation Christmas Child, a non-denominational emphasis, was the guest speaker at Holly Grove Church Sunday. A film was shown, and Franklin Graham said six million boxes were distributed last year. Shoe boxes are like missions of love bombarding the gates of hell, for little children are open to the gospel. Jesus said, “Let the little children come unto Me for of such is the Kingdom of God.” Prior to the services, Hosea Lemus was baptized. Hannah and Abbey Van den Bosch, students at Crockett High School, sang the special music. Ray Paris was welcomed into the fellowship at Holly Grove. Danny and Brenda Simpson and Johnny and Betsy Hart recently enjoyed a few days in Branson, MO. It is such a fun place to go. Brother Fred Campbell and wife Nancy returned from a trip to Florida where they attended the funeral of Nancy’s cousin, Mr. Greg Spikes. The 46th annual meeting of the Haywood Baptist Association was held last week at the Brownsville

Baptist Church. Rev. Phil Lovelace, the moderator, called the meeting to order. Following several reports and special music by Danny Presley, Dr. John Hayes brought the message. A delicious meal was enjoyed, provided by the host church. The night session began with the host church choir singing special music. Other reports were given and special music was brought by Ed Bendall, followed by a message from Dr. Roger Briggs. Dr. Charles Pratt serves as Mission Director. Ann Faulkner and Dewey and Martha Jones attended from Holly Grove Church. The sick are never far from our minds and should be often in our prayers. Betty Doyle underwent surgery last week. Sharon Davis is undergoing treatments following surgery. Glen Claburn was able to be at church following time in the hospital. Our friend, Virginia Taylor, fell and broker her leg last week. Others are Betty Barden, Mary Ann Ballard, Bobby Perry, Fletcher Lewis, Bland Boyd, Butch Wilson and Lucin English. Also include Ray Lovelace, Annalee Myers,

Viola Brown, Leland Simpson, Roy Emison, Louise Coleman, Justin Climer and Ray and Janie Hight. Happy birthday to Glen Claburn, Bobby Lovelace, Ashtan Perry and Rebecca Hart. Dewey and I took advantage of the early voting last week. As I sat and waited for Dewey to finish, I observed the people, and the thought came to me how blessed we are to be Americans. Everyone was friendly and helpful, white and black, men and women and young adults and seniors were able to cast their vote without any threat of harm. In many countries, they do not have that freedom. God has so blessed us in America. “Trunk and Treat” is coming up at Holly Grove Church this Saturday, October 27, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. It’s a fun time for all the family. The youth will be selling hotdogs, chips and a drink at 1970’s prices. It’s an alternative to Halloween. Over 225 people attended last year. There will be games and plenty of candy for everyone. Join us for this fun time.

The following are some of the many tips they had for this fall event. Instruct older children to take friends when trick-or-treating. Make sure a trusted adult, and older child, or you accompany your younger children. Accompany your younger

children to every door that they approach. Teach your children to only enter homes with your prior permission, and only approach homes that are welllit, both inside and outside. Teach your children to never approach a vehicle unless they are accompanied by you, even if it appears no one is in the vehicle. Make sure your children wear reflective clothing and carry a flashlight or glow stick

when traveling during evening hours. Make sure your children are able to see and breathe properly and easily when using facial masks. All costumes and masks should be clearly marked as flame resistant. Teach your children to always stay in welllit areas, never take shortcuts, and never go into isolated areas. Teach your children to stay alert for any suspicious incidents and report anything unusual to

you and/or law enforcement. Teach your children if anyone tries to grab them to draw attention to themselves by yelling, screaming and resisting in any way possible. Consider organizing or attending parties at home, in schools, churches or community centers as a good alternative to trick-or-treating. Until next time, be safe and call 911 for emergencies only.

Trick or Treat with area merchants October 31 Brownsville and Haywood County merchants invite areas children to “Trick or Treat with Me” on Wednesday, October 31, from 4-7 p.m. The annual event is sponsored by the Brownsville Business Association (BBA) and has become a favorite among children and adults.

The event began in 2008 when BBA members recognized a need for a safer alternative to traditional trick or treating. By remaining open later and offering this service to the children, merchants feel that they are providing a safer environment for the young people

of

our community. “The kids still get to experience the excitement of going door-to-door,” explains BBA President Kenny Ellington, “and the parents have the piece of mind of knowing this is a lot safer than visiting homes and neighborhoods they are not familiar with.”

A special “Trick or Trunk” area located on the parking lot of the Brownsville Funeral Home will give local residents an opportunity to participate in the activities, too. Adding to the excitement will be a special fun zone featuring a slide, bouncy house and other treats.

Residents interested in participating can contact the Brownsville Funeral Home at 731-772-1551. “Trick or Treat with Me” is open to children ages 12 and under and each child is encouraged to dress in his or her favorite costume. Parents will recognize participating merchants by the purple

and orange “Trick or Treat with Me” poster in windows. Last year over 20 businesses stayed open for this special event. For more information, or to sign-up your business to participate, contact the BBA at 731780-5144 or e-mail: info@ shopbrownsvilletn.com.

HCAA warning about new scam BY JENNIFER WILLIS jwillis@statesgraphic.com The Haywood County Ambulance Authority would like to warn residents about a new scam that surfaced over the past weekend. There is a company, using the name Safe Guard, calling people in an attempt to obtain their personal medical information. The purpose is to supposedly keep a patient from having to provide information in the event that they require an ambulance. The company is

asking for billing information for the patient, including their banking information. After the company receives personal information from an individual, they are using it to withdraw money from the individual’s bank account. Director of the Haywood County Ambulance Authority, Jimmy Studdard, would like to assure local residents that they, nor any other representative or company, call Haywood County residents and ask for personal information. A criminal investigation

has been launched regarding “Safe Guard.� If you receive a call from a representative claiming to be with the aforementioned company, please do not give them your personal information. “There have been no reports of this particular scam occurring in Haywood County,� said Studdard. “But we would like to make people in this community aware of the dangers, and assure them that we are not making those calls and requesting their information.�
