Haywood County, Tennessee

One Section, 12 Pages


Budget drafted again By CALVIN CARTER

Sometimes, it’s funny what type of difference a day can make. For example, last Wednesday, September 7, the Haywood County Budget Committee struggled with coming up with another proposed budget that could appease both commissioners and the public. As the committee met in the Haywood County Courthouse, they were surrounded by a huge crowd of concerned residents and scattered county commissioners. Budget committee members literally went through a letter submitted by concerned citizens of Haywood County, who met previously to discuss what they felt the committee should cut or at least consider. The letter included plans for cutting from the non-profit donations, suggestions of taking another look at inmate healthcare and a number of jail employees, cuts at communication costs, life insurance and a cut at the number of county commission meetings. The general result: a meeting with minor cuts and little change. While committee members did read and at least consider what the letter proposed, for the most part, little was actually put into action, except a decision to not hire five employees for the county jail. The committee also voted on a proposed mandatory non-paid holiday for all county employees. See BUDGET page 3

Ten Years Later

Local citizens remember 9/11 with memorial


“Ten years have passed since a perfect blue sky morning turned into the blackest of nights. Since then we’ve lived in sunshine and in shadow, and although we can never unsee what happened here, we can also see that children who lost their parents have grown into young adults, grandchildren have been born and good works and public service have taken root to honor those we loved and lost.” New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, speaking at the memorial service in New York Residents took the time to

honor, reflect and pray during a special 9/11 Memorial that took place Sunday, September 11, 6 p.m. at the Haywood High School football field. The event, hosted by the Brownsville/Haywood County Ministerial Alliance, featured performances from local church choirs. Prior to the event, local first responders and authorities were also treated to a special meal from the organization. Weather-wise, they probably couldn’t have picked a finer day, to host it. Temperatures remained in the mid-70s but dipped as sun began to set.

The event opened with a singing of “We’ve Got To Get America Back To God,” which was met with applause from the crowd. Most of the selected music numbers were very America centric, featuring numbers like “Proud To Be An American” and “America The Beautiful.” Special speaker, retired Air Force Lt. Col. Larry Kirk delivered a speech, touching on his belief of giving ourselves to God, as well as taking time to honor authorities and volunteers that helped during 9/11. “The truth of the matter

is the emphasis on tonight isn’t on the military, but on the first responders,” Kirk began. “I was telling one fireman earlier tonight that these guys are crazy. Smoking building, people yelling “Get out!” while you go running in. We thank you. And we thank our police and the 55,000 volunteers that converged on the scene to help out.” The evening ended appropriately with a playing of “Taps” with one lone trumpet, adding in just one more emotional touch to a night filled with both somberness and hope.

Jail still an issue By CALVIN CARTER

Weekend hot for local fire dept.

While most county officials have focused their attention on the County Budget, they may still, potentially, have a headache in the form of the jail. Despite what some residents have heard or believed, according to Haywood County Mayor, Franklin Smith, and County Attorney Michael Banks, the new county jail has not lost its certification. But there was another inspection from Detention Facility Specialist Robert Kaine recently, who once again noted what he believed are staffing issues that needed to be considered by the county. “I would strongly recommend the County Commission hire at least 10-correctional officers to work toward getting the staffing levels where they need to be,” Kaine wrote. “To do nothing could lead to possible “Deliberate Indifference” on the County’s part as well as make T.C.I. Certification unachievable for the facility.” The county has heard this number before, and in fact, at first only voted to add five employees to the jail while redoing the budget. See JAIL page 3


The Brownsville Haywood County Fire Department had a busy weekend, littered with various fires and numerous other calls. Everything seems to kick off Friday, September 9 in the early morning hours when authorities answered a call in Stanton. At approximately 3:40 a.m., authorities received a call about a residence fire at 21 Cherry Street off of Circle Drive in Stanton. The Stanton Volunteer Fire Department was first on the scene, followed by help from Station One at 19 West Franklin Street. Authorities were on the scene for approximately two hours, and described it as a total loss. See FIRE page 3

Series ends with blues and gospel The West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center’s summer concert series comes to a close this month with two weekends of great music. Blues artist Dr. David Evans and Elmo Lee Thomas will perform “on the porch” Saturday, September 17, followed by the Gospel Stars and Total Praise September 24. Both concerts will begin at 6 p.m. Evans has been performing country blues (guitar and vocals) since 1962, having learned directly from many of the old southern blues musicians. One of those musicians was Brownsville bluesman Hammie Nixon. Evans toured with Nixon for five years. He is currently Professor of Music at the University of Memphis and has taught at the University of Mississippi. Evans’ first musical partner was Alan Wilson, who went on to become

a member of the bluesrock group Canned Heat. Since 1980, Evans has been touring in Europe and is a member of the Last Chance Jug Band, a five-piece group based in Memphis since 1989. Joining Evans for the September 17, “Concert on the Porch” is Elmo Lee Thomas. Thomas, also a member of the Last Chance Jug Band, has been the driving force behind one of the MidSouth’s most popular bands, Elmo and the Shades, for over 25 years. He is a Memphis native and has a reputation of being a high-energy blues shouter and soul singer. Thomas has long been recognized as one of the region’s top harmonica talents. Brownsville’s own New Gospel Stars will take the stage on Saturday, September 24, for the final concert in the series. This band has

been performing across the region since the 1990s and will perform many of the old gospel favorites. The group features the talents of M.C. Cliff Jr., Mary Maclin, Felicia Walker, Johnny Bond, Robert Bryant and Jerry Miller. Opening the evening for the Gospel Stars will be Total Praise, a group of Brownsville women who began their journey as a gospel group about a year ago. This group includes the vocal talents of Hazel Walker, Sheketa Holmes, Tiffany Tolivar, Keisha Walker, Ti-Anna Wiley and Christy Henderson. The West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center presents “Concert on the Porch” May through September and features a different artist and genre each month. For more information about the concert series, call 731779-9000 or visit www.

Bang Hair Salon opens By Steven Diebold

Bringing a dream to reality, Mandy Owens and Kelly Hayes opened up their very own hair salon. Owens’ and Hayes’ Bang Hair Salon, located at 275 West Main, debuted to the community thanks to a ribbon cutting, Thursday September 8. “Its always been a dream of ours and just something we’ve always wanted to do “ Mandy Owens said. The two have known each other for ten years, describing themselves as best friends with a shared dream. In February the two finally decided to move from dream to reality. Customers can expect the latest hairstyles, from “rock n roll”, to “wedding,” and classic”. The girls can easily offer some unique and creative hairstyles with their hours of operation running from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday. And walk-ins are welcome. The two described the opening of Bang Hair Salon as both a surreal experience and also a relief. “We had a rough time getting started, so we just wanted to let everyone that supported us know, that we just appreciate

them getting behind us while we’re trying to open,” Kelly Hayes said. Given what Brownsville Haywood County Chamber Executive Director Joe Ing said, its clear that

support may continue to grow. “It just looks fantastic,” Ing said. “I just want to thank you so much for the investment you’ve made in Brownsville and Haywood County.

Fire continued Owners of the residence are Jonathan and Rashonda Gayden, but the residence was rented by Tamica Middlebrooks. Besides the Stanton fire, authorities dealt with numerous calls during the weekend, including one concerning a semi-truck where fire was coming out of the vehicle’s smokestack near Exit 67. Authorities said that no one was harmed,

and the fire stopped once the engine cut off. Authorities also dealt with multiple grass fires, including those on Tritt, Shepp, and Tibbs roads. No one was hurt from the fires, but authorities blame the sudden rash of grass or brush fires on a dry season. One spark, coupled with the wind, could lead to hours of firefighters battling a blaze.

Breakfast for Babies takes place By STEVEN DIEBOLD

Breakfast for babies was held on Friday September 9 at CUZ’s Smokehouse – N – Grill. The event was a fundraiser for March of Dimes, an organization that aims to help babies begin happy and healthy lives through research and programs. “Rob and I are very thankful for what the March Of Dimes has done for our girls,” mother Catherine Hamilton said. Headed by local chair, Joanna Morris, this year’s event featured an opportunity to be served by some of Haywood County’s finest, while also contributing to a great cause. This year’s host of “celebrity” waiters and waitresses included: Brownsville Mayor Jo

Matherne, Jody Lea, Sallie Adkins, Cindy Smith, Allan Callery, Carolyn Flagg, Sheriff Melvin Bond, Joyce Moore, Eddie Martin, and Greg Vanstory. Haywood County has three ambassadors this year: Shannice Forrest daughter of Yvette and ShaCarta Forrest, and Mary and Elise Hudson, twin daughters of Catherine and Rob Hamilton. These three girls have had to deal with so much, for being so young. Mary Houston and Elise Hamilton were born pre-mature on August 7, 2007, weighing at 3.9 and 3.10 pounds. Their mother, Catherine, had to deliver the twin girls at only 33 weeks of gestation due to high blood pressure. Catherine was given steroid shots five days before their birth

to help with the twins’ lung development. And shortly after their birth, an ultrasound revealed that Mary Houston had a heart defect that would require open-heart surgery. Today, the girls are healthy at nearly four years old. Shannice was born June 11, 2008 with her twin Yannis Jalia three months early. Shannice weighed in at one pound and four ounces, while her sister weighed one pound and four ounces. Shannice was also born not breathing. On July 22, 2008, while at first appearing to survive strongly, Shannice’s sister died to Necrotizing Enterocolitis. Shannice continued her battle for survival, facing obstacles like blood transfusions to dealing with numerous infections. But finally

Budget Continued Suffice it to say, there was still major concern leaving the meeting Wednesday among committee members and the public. “It we don’t get something done, the schools could be shut down and the state can come in and set the tax rate,” Budget Committee Chair Allan King said. “And I know the public doesn’t want that.” Yet, on the following Thursday, the committee seemed to have finally reached a solution, thanks in large part to budget suggestions from committee member and commissioner Joe Stevens. Before Stevens presented his proposal, the committee rescinded their decision on hiring five employees for the jail and the mandatory unpaid holiday. Stevens’ proposal

includes a three percent cut to essential services like: Veterans’ Services, Ambulance Service, Register of Deeds, Rescue Squad, County Coroner, Sheriff’s Department, County Jail, Central Dispatch, Beer Board, Election Commission, County Buildings and Fire Prevention. The proposal lists a six percent cut to nonessential services like: UT Extension, Circuit, General Sessions, Juvenile, and Chancery Courts, County Assessor, County Reappraisal, Trustee, Mayor’s Office and County Commission. And it also presents a 12 percent cut to Parks and Recreation and Soil Conservation. In addition to the proposed cuts, Stevens also presented ideas to increase Rural Solid Waste funds to $20, and

use income from the Beer Tax to add two jailers. “I know this isn’t really popular, but we’ve got to come up with something,” Stevens said. The committee voted 5-1 for it, with Robert Greene voting “No.” The budget could help Haywood County finally come close to a balanced budget for the fiscal year. It remains to be seen if the department actually fully agreed to the cuts needed to make Steven’s plan work. The tax rate will be set at $2.58, 20 cents higher than last years in order to pay off the county debt. This is 12 cents lower than the proposed $2.70 tax rate shot down by commissioners. There will be a public meeting on the budget Thursday, September 22, 7 p.m. at the Haywood County courthouse.

she won, and today is described as a “vibrant” three-year-old. The three ambassadors were also treated to a special “little girl’s tea party” Saturday, September 10, which included pedicures and manicures as well as limo ride. If you missed the chance to help out with March of Dimes, don’t worry as you’ll have another opportunity during their first ever First State Banks’ Biking For Babies, sponsored by First State Bank, Bicycle City, Lea & Simmons Funeral Home and Joey Conner Real Estate. The event will take place Saturday October 1, at College Hill. Registration begins at 6:45 a.m. For more information, contact Lisa Carlton at 779-9199.

This number has descended to two now. Sheriff Melvin Bond said during last week’s budget committee meetings, that the number he was “working in his head” was ten, but also added that he would work with whatever the county commissions gave him. Smith noted that while the county will not be able to give the sheriff ten employees, that doesn’t mean the jail will

be decertified. Looking through the rules of the T.C.I. Correctional Facilities Inspection, the mayor and Banks do have a point that there is nothing that is said as far as a required number of staff. However, Banks added, that ultimately, the final decision on whether the jail would be decertified or not rests with T.C.I. A follow-up inspection is planned for October 31.

Off the Beaten Path with Jerry Wilson

Running from memories

The decision was made a while back that our family desperately needed some time off to regroup and gather our thoughts after a very challenging year of tragic events. After dealing with my wife’s illness that dates back to September 2010 and her death in February 2011, a get-away seemed to be a good idea for most members of the family. I’ve heard it said many times, that we all sometimes need a “change of place” far from the location of the area that has so many unpleasant memories. The same is also said regarding a “change of pace.” My initial response regarding the vacation was a no vote. I just didn’t feel up to it and felt it was a little too soon for such a trip. However, I didn’t wish to stand in the way of family plans and the family didn’t want me to stay behind. So I joined them even though, at the time, it went against my better judgment. The family selected a site as far away as possible from the vacation sites where Carol shared those wonderful moments with us. They settled on a vacation fling to the Gulf Coast. They were fortunate enough to get a

marvelous cottage with good accommodation rates since the tourist season was over. Their plans seemed to work beautifully for them. However, I found it most interesting that while making their plans to remove themselves as far as possible from the point of their greatest grief, our destiny would lead me smack dab to the middle of ground zero. You see, they had no knowledge of the role the Gulf Coast played in the early years of our relationship. Carol spent some time during her teenage years with her mother who lived along the Gulf Coast. Our very first trip outside of West Tennessee left footprints in the very area that was the center of our vacation. Carol and I never talked much about those days as our lives moved in a different direction and our vacation plans would never again include the Gulf Coast. As our vacation was drawing to a close, I spent a few moments relaxing on the deck overlooking the Gulf catching a final glimpse of the beauty and picturesque features of the landscape. About a half dozen dolphins were at play, sea gulls were out in great numbers and the Gulf waters were extremely

calm following the departure of a previous hurricane. Sometimes in the midst of this magical moment, the scene changed to early 1968. The first thing I saw in the scene change was a beautiful silver 1965 Plymouth convertible (SE). I had almost forgotten about that silver bullet. Next, I heard voices and saw a young couple frolicking on the beach. That couple was us. Carol was as beautiful as I ever remembered. She was tall and lean with her beautiful reddish brown hair all decked out in those Shirley Temple curls. My desire was to freeze this scene for a moment in time, but I knew in my heart it couldn’t be. My family got their wishes for a relaxing vacation away from the memories of vacations spent in her presence and the opportunities for a new beginning. I, on the other hand, got what I needed. My first thought was that I also wanted some time away. However, this vacation experience reaffirmed the fact that we can’t run fast enough, walk slow enough, or travel far enough to remove those precious and most special moments that are linked to us by heartstrings.

And Where Were You? The human memory can be one of the most amazing pieces of the human mind. For example, while there are some who can barely remember what they had for dinner two nights ago, there are others that can remember the exact feel of the air when their high school sweetheart broke their heart, or the exact hue of the room of when you held your first born. Plenty of family, friends and loved ones would be happy to tell you that I have a very warped memory. I mean I can barely remember when someone makes plans for me to meet for an interview, yet I can recall the exact moment I experienced my first concert. It was May 2002, at the annual Memphis in May, a collection of varied concert, traveling with

a pack of my then best friends. There was one in the group, unknown to her of course, I was “madly” in love with, so much so, that I allowed her to drag me to see John Mayer. She also made me hold her purse while she cheered vicariously for the adult contemporary crooner. It rained. And my eyes stung of the thick hair gel I then wore in a sad attempt to impress my peers. Ah, high school. This isn’t what I wanted to talk about of course, but instead was hoping to lead up to a question I may have already asked you—I did say warped memory—once before. Do you remember where you were when 9/11 occurred? Can you expertly recall your surroundings as if you’re still there?

Chances are, no matter how shoddy your memory may be, I bet you can. For me, I was once again in high school, a junior in the middle of reviewing for a test for my A.P. Biology Class. Another teacher came in suddenly and pulled my teacher, Mr. Kuykendall to the side and talked in a very urgent hushed voice. My teacher said nothing as he hit power on the TV in the room and put the channel on CNN. There it was. The image of the towers, smoking, standing before their last fall. I remember everyone either having a worried or blank look on their faces that day. And on the walk home, nothing but silence. What do you remember?


By 28th Judicial District Circuit Court Judge Clayburn Peeples

Suspicious Minds So I see this guy in line at a store the other day with three Elvis CD’s in his hand. I ask him if he is a fan, and it turns out he really, really is. So much so that he says later in the conversation that he thinks the King still lives. “You really think he’s still alive?” I ask. “Well, he may not be now,” he says. “He might have died of old age or something, but I know he didn’t die when they said he did.” It was my turn to check out then, so I didn’t get to ask him how he knew that, but his statement got me to wondering how many other people think that way. Turns out that, among Americans, only about seven percent of us do. Eighty-nine percent say there is no way he could be alive, and the rest don’t know or care. Now, seven percent doesn’t sound like much, but think of it this way — it’s about 20,000,000 people. We Americans are a suspicious, some would say paranoid, lot. How about the World Trade Center destruction? Did you know it was an inside job orchestrated by the Bush Administration to drum up support for the coming war in Iraq? A surprising number of people believe just that. Others say that our government didn’t do it, but that they knew it was going to happen and did nothing to stop it. Just like Pearl Harbor. Many people believe FDR knew about the attack in advance, but that he did nothing to stop or defend against it in order to undercut public opposition to our entering World War II. Marilyn Monroe’s death? Yeah, she died of an overdose of barbiturates, but it wasn’t suicide or an accidental death. It was murder, a killing engineered by the government to prevent her from spilling top secrets she had learned

during her love affair with John Kennedy. So the conspiracy theorists say. Singer Michael Jackson and rapper Tupac Shakur? Both alive and living in seclusion. Beatle Paul McCartney, on the other hand, is believed by many conspiracy theorists to actually be dead, killed in a car crash in 1966, only to be replaced with a ringer by the surviving Beatles. His fellow Beatle, John Lennon, is believed by many to have been murdered by an assassin, Mark Chapman, whose mind had been manipulated by the CIA because they feared Lennon’s influence. Princess Diana’s death? Not an accident at all. Murdered in an elaborate plot by England’s Royal Family because she was pregnant with her Muslim boyfriend Dodi Fayed’s child. At least, that’s what a quarter of the population of the United Kingdom, and who knows how many Americans think. The Apollo Moon Landing in 1969? A hoax, filmed in Hollywood or an Arizona desert on orders of Richard Nixon in order to raise Americans’ morale and take their minds off the Vietnam quagmire he had promised, but was unable to end. The 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami that killed 230,000 Asians in 2004? Did you know it was caused by a tsunami bomb our government detonated deep in a strategic position under the ocean? That rumor is still circulating in the Arab world. There used to be a lot of debate about fluoridating water in America. Some people still say it is part of a Soviet (or New World Order) plot to either poison, control the minds, or lower the IQ’s of the American people, thus “dumbing us down” to the point we can easily be taken over.

Something sure has. That new digital television you are enjoying? Did you know the real reason the government forced all stations to start broadcasting digital signals was because the new digital sets contain hidden cameras to spy on us and so they, the government, can bombard us with mind control messages encoded and hidden in the digital signals? I didn’t think you knew that. And all those bar codes they put on everything you buy now? You know why they do that, don’t you? The number 666 is encoded in every one of them — the mark of the beast. How else can you explain the sudden collapse of religion in America? So goes the theory, anyway. The conspiracy theory, that is. And then there’s AIDS, created in a government lab, our government, of course, as a tool of genocide and/ or population control. The conspiracy theorists claim the CIA deliberately administered the virus to African-Americans and homosexuals in the 1970’s via tainted hepatitis vaccinations and then distributed it all across Africa in order to slow down development of the entire continent. And then there’s the Kennedy assassination, but we all know more than we want to know about it. Most people don’t believe in any of these government conspiracies because they agree with G. Gordon Liddy that bureaucrats are incompetent and that nobody can keep a secret these days, but what about Elvis? Did you know (I’ll bet you didn’t.) that the word “Elvis” is an anagram of the word “lives?” Coincidence? I think not. Are we sure it’s a good idea to let everybody vote?

Garden Club meets at College Hill Dogwood Care and Concerns, along with Fall Cleanup, was the program for the first meeting of the Town and Country Garden Club’s 2011-2012 year. The Club met at College Hill September 8. Linda Leath began by telling the Legend of the Dogwood tree. Alice Sullivan demonstrated her love of dogwoods by telling of homes that she has lived in during the years and how she has planted dogwood trees from seedlings on these properties. With two little trees in containers, Alice described how to go about digging up a seedling and caring for it. She mentioned that the dogwood is valuable in landscaping particularly under a canopy of trees, provides flowers in spring, shade in summer, berries in the fall and a peaceful portrait in winter. She also emphasized that newer hybrids have been introduced that are more disease resistant. Jean Williams discussed fall cleanup for the flower garden emphasizing that it is a

good time to get rid of diseased plants, cut back and divide perennials and compost leaves. Later in the fall and winter will be a good time to plant trees and shrubs. Genie Taylor and Nan Downing provided delicious refreshments of coffee cake, goat and honey cheese roll with rosemary wafers and juice. A vase of zinnias and sunflowers complimented the refreshment table with zinnias and sunflowers designated as the flower of the month. Genie told of the botanical name for these, a little of their history, and how to grow them. President Nan Downing welcomed everyone including Susan Leath as a new member and Linda Carr as a guest. Programs for the year were presented and discussed by Nan along with those responsible for refreshments. The next meeting of the Club will be at the West Tennessee Experiment Station in Jackson with tours by Carol Reese and Jason Reeves.

Dyer Co. too much for HHS

Big second quarter propels Choctaws By JEFF IRELAND

An all-state quarterback and an upperclassmen-laden Dyer County team proved to be too much for Haywood to overcome Friday night at home in a non-district game. Choctaw quarterback Dylan Dye threw for 282 yards and five touchdowns to lead Dyer County (3-1) past Haywood 44-6. After Tomcat sophomore Martez Comage broke a 70-yard touchdown run with 5:04 left in the second quarter, Haywood (0-3) trailed just 21-7. But a two-yard touchdown run by Dyer County’s Thaddeus Medford late in the second quarter and an 11-yard touchdown pass from Dye to Jacob Hudson midway through the third put the game out of reach. “They’re just a

whole lot better team than us right now,” said Haywood coach Slade Calhoun. “There’s probably not a guy on our team who would start on their team. They’ve got an all-state quarterback and a running back who’s going to play college somewhere.” Haywood freshman Bryce Young, who was named the starting quarterback last week, completed 14 of 25 passes for 59 yards, but was under pressure most of the night. Junior Seth Birdsong had a solid night for the Tomcats, catching six balls for 37 yards. Dyer County got on the board with 8:56 left in the first quarter on a 78-yard touchdown pass from Dye to Ky Wilson. A nine-yard scoring strike from Dye to Bryce Heathcott and a 33-yarder to Fred Yarbrough followed in the second quarter to push the lead to 21-0.

Wilson caught Dye’s fifth touchdown pass of the night in the fourth quarter on a 39-yard play. Dyer County finished with 443 yards to Haywood’s 165. Despite dropping a third straight game, Calhoun said he has seen some positive signs. “I think we’re still improving,” Calhoun said. “We’ve gotten a lot better from game one, but we’ve got to learn to play hard the whole game. Especially against a team like Dyer County, you’ve got to do that.” The Tomcats will bring an 0-1 District 13AA record into a road game against Dyersburg (1-2 overall, 0-1 district) on Friday night. “They’re a big, strong team that’s going to try and run over the top of us,” Calhoun said. “They’ve got a good quarterback too. It’s going to be a tough game.”

Batchelor leads HHS runners


Depite lacking experience, several Haywood High cross country runners fared well last week at the USJ Invitational in Jackson. Justin Batchelor led the Haywood team with a top 40 finish at the multischool meet and Deonte

Brown finished four spots behind his teammate. It was Batchelor’s best result of the season. “I’m pleased how the team competed in their second meet of the season, but the team could have done more to prepare for this meet,” said coach David Claybrooks. “We clowned around all week, not taking every-

thing seriously, and it showed a little bit in the meet.” Prince Williams was the third finisher for Haywood. Williams and Brown each posted career-best finishes. Claybrooks said, despite a few issues, he likes the direction the program is heading. “Sometimes the kids

want to convert back to how Haywood High cross country/track and field teams carried themselves in previous years, and that’s the demeanor I’m working to change as coach,” Claybrooks said. “The team has bought into my coaching system since day one, but we still have some work to do in areas.”

Haywood Youth Sports Football Results The Haywood Youth Sports Football teams got the 2011 football season started early Saturday morning as they boarded the buses and headed to Bartlett, Tennessee. The Seniors (12-14 year olds) were first up with a 9 o’clock kick-off. They got off the bus and started taking care of business from the opening possession. Coach Rodney Clark had his team well prepared and never were challenged, as they rolled past the Bartlett Seniors, 36-0. Standouts on defense were Emmitt Gooden, 6’2 240 lb DT, and Xavier Ballard, 6’0 229 lb DT. The officials, at one point, asked Coach Clark if the two could not hit so hard. On offense, Cody Baggett TE, Nathan Lilly QB, and Quintavious Murphy RB, led the scoring fireworks. The next game was the Bantams (6-7 yr olds), after a hard fought game,

from beginning to end, the young Cats fell 2713. Head Coach Shacarta Forrest has these young men headed for success once the season unfolds. Coach Ben Polk and the PeeWees (8-9 yr olds) took the field to do battle with a very good Bartlett squad. The Cats defense was lights out all day, but the offense just couldn’t get in the end zone. The final score was Bartlett 12, Haywood 0. The last, but certainly not least, game was the Juniors (10-11yr olds) led by Head Coach

Terry Wayne “Smooth” Walker. This proved to be an old fashion throw down, with neither team giving ground. The game was scoreless until the last 2:50 minutes of the game when Bartlett scored, giving them a 6-0 victory over the Cats. Overall, all teams look set to have a strong and successful season. The next game will be Saturday, September 17 against the talented Cordova Wolves. The Seniors will have to pull an extra workload as they

get Sunday off, then play Monday night against Southwind. We will keep Haywood County posted on the season and these outstanding young people.

By GailBarden Barden by Gail

I hope everyone is enjoying the cooler temperatures. Fall is such a beautiful season even though it is a bit melancholy to me. I am so glad that we, in the south, are able to experience the seasons to a degree. Attendance was good at Allen on Sunday. We had a great service, and Harriet Stewart sang the special music. Allen will host their Fall Revival September 18-21, with Evangelist Phil Glisson as the speaker. Lunch will be served in the fellowship hall following the morning worship service on Sunday. Services on Sunday will be at 10:45 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday through Wednesday services will be at 7 p.m. Everyone is welcome. Alicia, W.A. and I enjoyed a delightful play, School House

Rock, presented by the University School of Jackson Middle School on Sunday afternoon. Our grandson, Julian, had a great part in the play, and we were so proud of him. Julian’s parents, Jason and Amber, were there along with Rose and Dennis Corkery. It is so good to see our young people work so hard and develop their talents. It was a great show. Last week, I mentioned my friend, Bennett Bachelor, who will be receiving a kidney transplant on September 26. I want to include Bennett’s email address so that all of Bennett’s friends and former classmates can send him their best wishes. His email address is batch1@ I am sure that the members of our class of 1964 will want to send him a note. Please

continue to remember him and his family in your prayers. Happy birthday to Julie Coulson and Joan Taylor. We extend our sincere sympathy to the Mann family in the death of Mrs. Margaret Mann. Please pray for her sweet daughters and their families. She will be missed. On our prayer list are Bennett Batchelor, Martha Crutcher, Jerry Baggett, Carolyn Danley, Liz Evans and Steve White. Our Bible verse for this week is Psalm 95:1, which states, “ O come, let us sing unto the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.” If you have news or prayer requests, please contact me at gail. Have a great week.

by Betty By BettyScott Scott Many of us spent last Sunday remembering the events of September 11, 2001. Some things happen in life that you will never forget where you were at a certain moment. Lifetime Movie Network had a great documentary last Sunday called “102 Minutes That Changed America”.   Fall is nearly here and the weather has been great!  By now I am tired of hot weather, tired of watering flowers and is looking forward to cooler weather.   In spite of Hurricane Lee, Betty Scott, along with daughter, Dana Coulston, Brenda Fox and her daughter, Angela Phillips and granddaughter, Savannah Phillips, spent Labor Day weekend in Destin, Fla.  No one was allowed in the water, but just walking on the beach

was fun and, of course, we had to do some shopping. Kenny, Dede, Will and Carol Kendrick traveled to Nashville to see “Thomas the Train” last weekend. The Gaylon Herron family attended the Taylor-Petty family reunion last Sunday. Also attending from this community were Phillip Greenway, Louquita Climer and her daughter, Tammy Lane, and family.  Darrell is feeling so much better since he went to Memphis and had heart surgery.   Last Wednesday he drove to Wal-Mart and did some shopping.   Congratulations to Emily Herron, daughter of Gaylon and Patricia Herron, on the passing of her certification exam for Medical Assistant.  Emily graduated from West TN Business College

in July. She plans to take the certification exam for Phlebotomy in November. Ann Cannon fell and broke her wrist last week, so Zion United Methodist Church and Bethel Community Church will have no piano player for a while.   Ann plays for both churches and does a great job.   Bethel Community Church will host its homecoming on September 18 with special music by Sandi and Sonny Bishop.   Bro. Bob Agee is the guest speaker.   Services start with Sunday school at 10 a.m. and singing and preaching at 11 a.m.   A potluck meal will follow.   Everyone is invited. Thought for the week:  “Teach thy tongue to say “I do not know” and thou shall progress.”

By H.Jones Jones by Martha Martha H. By Martha H. Jones Jones, Haley Hendrix, Paula Lara, Amanda Ellington, Tyler Tindle, Harley Hendrix, Alberto Zamaguey and Steve Lewis. Happy anniversary to Brother Ralph and Elaine Brown and to Earnest and Joy O’Neal. Alan and Debbie Jones and Dewey Jones were among many wellwishers to attend the retirement party given for Brenda Lea held last Friday at the Insouth Bank. Dewey and Brenda worked for a number of years together in the Trust Department at the bank. Helen Hastings returned from a trip to Mt. City, where she visited with her son and daughter and their families. Helen is a typical grandmother. Let’s continue to keep the sick in our prayers. The list includes Lucille Hight, Elvin Wells, Annelee Myers, Jeff Parker, Ruth Taylor, Debbie Jones and Betty Friend. Others are Ashlyn Young, Ted Mann, Glenn White, Sandra Posey, Michelle Vaughn, Ray and Janie Hight and Ken Covington. We were happy to see Viola Brown

years ago. Last Sunday night about 40 youth and adults went bowling after Church. Brother Mark Conway reported 14 attended the men’s prayer breakfast Thursday, and Brother Tim McPherson presented the devotion. Anyone interested in joining this faithful group, come to Zion’s family life center Thursday morning at six. Approximately 50 students along with their parents enjoyed a day of fun in the sun at the home of their martial arts leader Ricky Ellington. He had a water slide, but I think many of them enjoyed the lake more. Everyone had a wet and wonderful time! My brother Tommy and Judy Elrod stopped by Saturday. They went with us to Ripley to visit with our cousin Jimmy Joe Elrod and Denita. After leaving there, we stopped by my Aunt Brenda Elrod’s house for a brief visit. Everyone was doing well and enjoyed the fellowship. Alice Elrod (mama) is sick (taking medicine), and the doctors still haven’t diagnosed Caleb Potter’s illness

as he keeps trying new medications. Bethany Potter is home after a night in the hospital and on bed rest for a few more weeks. Timmy Barnes is continuing treatments and Jessie Austin is gradually putting more weight on his foot. Susan Foster is healing from her back surgery, but those are all the updates on the sick ones that I have since Wednesday night’s prayer meeting. Mark your calendars: Zion’s adult choir will begin working on the Christmas Cantata next Sunday night at 5 p.m. Beginning in October, Discipleship training will include a class for women based on the “Timothy Project.” October 8 is the date for Zion’s annual stew. Fall Revival will take place October 9 – 12. Precept Ministries December Youth Bible conference will be held the 2 – 4. 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.

Holly Grove News Grove News ly Holly Grove News “A Firm Foundation” was the subject our pastor chose for the message telling of the wise and foolish builders. The foolish builder wasn’t lazy and was industrious. He built a fine building, but his problem was the foundation that could not withstand the storms that came. The wise builder chose a rock foundation that proved to be a solid foundation. The builders had only two choices, a rock foundation or one that was inadequate. We live in the greatest country in the world and are envied by most of the world’s people, but what are we building our lives on? To be able to stand on judgment day, we must have built on Jesus, the Rock of our salvation. Danny Simpson led the music in the absence of Brother Ralph Brown. Danny’s granddaughter, Blair Simpson, sang “How Great Thou Art,” for the special music. Albert Overton from Murfreesboro spent last weekend with his mother, Jewel Overton. Patty Byrd joined them on Sunday for a meal together. Happy birthday to Chris Barrett, Jasmine

Every home is a school. What is yours teaching? This was on the Mt. Pleasant Church sign in Hillville a few weeks ago and being a teacher, it caught my eye. We need to be ever mindful of what we as parents / guardians are teaching our children! Brother Mark’s sermon continued that thought Sunday morning at Zion as he left us with the question, “What does the world see in your life? Do they see Jesus in you?” He used I Thessalonians for his text with a message entitled, “Faithful Witness”. What a message! After Church, Jimmy and I traveled to Hillville to enjoy a stew at Sammy and Elizabeth Taylor’s home along with Robert and Genie Earnest. We also stopped by and visited with Jason and his family. Grandkids, Lillie and Jacob, enjoyed the afternoon riding the fourwheeler with cousins Emily and Taleigha. Sunday night Zion participated in the community memorial service to remember those who lost their lives tragically on 9-11, ten

at church Sunday. Her daughter, Dale Sinclair, from Carthage spent the week with her. Dale and Terry brought her to church. Alma Herbert and Lorie Jones attended the College Hill Senior Citizens fashion, fun show last Thursday at Sugar Creek. Jewel Overton modeled a dress with pink flowers pinned to it and in her hair. One lady modeled a paper dress. It was a fun time for all. Lorie also attended the Bells singles gathering at Ho Ho’s last Friday night with her friend Tammy Emerson. A large number from Holly Grove Church attended the 9/11 service Sunday evening held at the Brownsville Football Stadium, remembering the most devastating event that happened to our country on that date 10 years ago. We also wanted to remember and show our appreciation to those who gave their lives and to those who survived assisting others to safety. What a wonderful country. We are blessed to call America our home. God have mercy on us and keep us free.

“God wants to hear about our deepest needs.” This is our Thought for the Week as published in the Upper Room Devotional by Paola Badilla of Costa Rica. The greatest joy from all of our hard work is to share what we have with others rather than using it all for ourselves. God owns everything. God can do everything and God knows everything. God feels his joy in giving to us. God welcomes us to talk about our needs and desires. We can ask God for all we need and trust that God will hear and respond in love. The Mt. Pleasant UMW met on Wednesday, September 6, in the fellowship hall. Those who attended were Lillie Goodman, Hope Cannon, Vickie Garrett, Marcia Watson, Peggy Lewis, Sue Goodman Barbara Hayes and myself. The service at Mt. Pleasant on Sunday was a special service conducted by the women of the church and was in observance of remembering the victims of 9/11/2001. Lisa Lewis was the speaker. Barbara Hayes, Sue Goodman and I attended the Community-wide Memorial Ceremony for 9/11. Sherry Allen, Steve and Mindi Allen and Alyssa were there also. Trey Allen participated in the program with the ROTC. Bro. Butch Westover of Harmony sang. This was a very touching service and it was awesome to see the community unite for this. It was a great way to say thank you to all of our local fire fighters, first responders, EMTs and police officers as well as to all of our military for the jobs they do every day to look out for all of us. After seeing all of the documentaries on television leading up to 9/11 and then attending the local program, it made

me realize how blessed we are to live in such a close-knit community. Sunday, September 18, the Brownsville District United Methodist Women will host their Annual Day at First Methodist Church in Bolivar. The program begins at 2 p.m. and Daphne Moses will be the guest speaker. Happy anniversary to James and Lucille Elrod, who will celebrate 48 years on September 14. Happy birthday to Ed Dowdy, Bro. Eddie Martin, Ellington Steele, Jeremony Fox, Jeff Bruce, Lizzie Williams, Ray Williams, Jerry Lewis, Dwayne Qualls, Brittany Pruett, Debbie Meyer, Sonya Goodman, Stacey Wolfe, Katie Hayes and Alia Williams. Prayer requests this week include

Eddie Warren, Anneli Meyers, Caleb Potter, Audrey Warren, Bobby Cannon, James Elrod, Carol Bruce, Rosie Pentz, Caleb Kirkland, Sharon Bouillion, Linda Kirkland, Ann Baird, Camryn Dirl, Ruth Vestal, William Logan, Martha Frye, Jimmy Swain, 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 Ms. Bobbie Murphy, Mrs. Mary Taylor and Mrs. Mary Myers in the loss of their loved ones.

Sugar Creek Sugar Creek Sugar Creek Around Town Around Town With Marty with MartyWilliams Williams

John and Jane Simmons have had an exciting little ‘happy’ in their family! John, Jane, brother Richard Dickerson, George and Linda Stephenson and Freida Hicks just returned from Las Vegas where they went to see their nephew, Russell Dickerson of Nashville, perform at the Sunset Station Casino! Russ is a CAA artist and just signed on with Combustion Music! (As many of you know, Russ has sung at the Brownsville Homecoming at College Hill Theater numerous times and was fabulous!) Congratulations Russ! That is fantastic! Betty Cozart has been keeping herself extremely busy with ‘The Out & Abouters’ of the First United Methodist Church lately! They took a bus trip to the Hummingbird Celebration in Holly Springs, Miss. Friday, September 9. Activities included a tour of the historic Davis home, a superb view of millions of hummingbirds and butterflies from the sunroom, guided walking tours, wagon tours, nature vendors holding hummingbirds and releasing them back into the wild. Twenty seniors (not just from FUMC) took advantage of the trip! Wow! Joan and Larry Banks are flitting all over the New England states! Their first stop was Boston, then on to New Port, Rhode Island where they toured the mansions in the rain. They also drove to Mystic, Conn. then took on the aquarium. They drove to Cape Cod where the heavens departed and the sun came forth! They toured the Cape, Martha’s Vineyard and then on to our very own David Cook’s hometown,

in Nantucket! What a marvelous trip! She asked that we pray for their safety as they left Boston on the historic date of 09/11. The Class of 1961 is planning their 50th class reunion at College Hill for October 8, 2011! The planning group of Linda Carr, Ann Chamberlain, Geneva Littlejohn, Linda Merrick, Nancy West, Nell and Jack Fox, Bea Love from Alamo and Betty Beasley from Covington, met at Larry Overton’s home to get the invitations in the mail. Roland and Ann Reid recently spent a week in Gatlinburg at the Mountain Loft Resort! They stayed over for a weekend in Knoxville to attend the Tennessee/ Montana football game. I’ll bet those mountains were magnificent at this time of year! Lucky! Lucky! Beth Wallace celebrated her birthday with her mother, Nancy and Tommy Littlejohn, her sister and family from Cordova, Jennifer and Chris McCage, her brother, Bobby and Sylvia Durham of Ripley, her daughters, Marybeth, Anna and Amy McCage of Brownsville, Doug and Joy Stuart and Jeff Jackson of Brownsville. Her husband Ray kept the cooker going with the help of Doug, so all could take pleasure in the fish fry with all the trimmings. I just know the fellowship with family was awesome! Deane Walton mentioned, in order to see some really hardplaying football, go to the Haywood Youth Football games at the football field on Saturday, September 17. She says those young fellows and their coaches play some serious football! The games start around 9 a.m. and last

until mid-afternoon. You won’t want to miss one minute of it! Saturday night, Pam and Tommy Russell helped host a benefit for the YMCA-Tuscany in Tennessee. The hosts were: Mary Katherine and Peter Mascolo, Sheri and Ronnie Richardo, Susan and Arthuro Ellisandro, Christy and Fox di Smitti, Joan & Larry Bankucchi, Sandra and Fred Silversteinna. Guests were serenaded upon arrival by Peter Mascolo and celebrated the evening beginning with Prosecco and appetizers. Appropriate wines were served with a four-course dinner. Delicious tiramisu and coffee concluded the evening. Guests included Elizabeth and Lyle Reid, Nell Berta and James Haynes, Marcina Harris, Ann and Patrick Mann, Elma Rogers, Joyce Fannin, Suzanne and Watt Wallace and Susan and Robert Reeves. The added endings to the last names in this paragraph were just an entertaining way of describing the guests at the evening of ‘Tuscany in Tennessee’ at the Russell home and in no way tries to convince any one that these last names are authentic. On a more serious note, our friend Art Ellis recently underwent a four by-pass surgery. He is at home now recovering. We hope you are up and around very soon! On a sad note, we are sorry to hear Betsy Mann Thornton’s mama, Margaret Mann, passed away last week. Please accept all of our heartfelt sympathy. She will be missed. Remember to keep that scoop coming! I can NOT do it by myself! You all are doing such a good job! Aroundtownmarty@ or 780-4111.

Willie, was the executor of the will. He did a lot of traveling to and from Haywood County, and in October of 1837, he took Charlotte and Albert and they began making their way to Haywood County. The will stated they left Donaldson, LA by steamboat to Randolph. The passage for the three of them was $60. From Randolph, they took “ferriage” to Wesley then hired a horse from Wesley to Brownsville. She married Dr. William C. Bruce three years later. They had six children: Henry Clay b. 1843 (fought in Civil War); Charlotte Elizabeth b.1846; Zachary b.1848; Walter L. b.1849; Joel Collins b.1850; and Mary “Allie” b.1854. Charlotte’s son, Albert, by her first marriage was an apprentice for his step-father and became a doctor as well. Charlotte had several step-children. One of them was Allen Asher Bruce, also a physician who was in the Civil War and later moved to Arkansas. Dr. William C. Bruce’s first wife was Elizabeth Asher who died in 1839 in Haywood County. Julie shared a story with me I wanted to share with you. She said she has a membership to and received

by Shirley Tucker, Activity By Shirley Tucker, ActivityDirector Director Is everyone happier this week with the weather? It has cooled down some even if it hasn’t rained. I guess the east coast got enough rain for all of us. We want to thank Dare Simpson this week so very much for a real treat she set up for us. Her daughter, Vicki Bonawitz and Vicki’s daughter, Casey, were both home for the weekend from Counce and she brought them to Sugar Creek to sing for the residents. They were wonderful and knew lots of folks out here. After they sang they were gracious enough to take requests and had a regular singalong. The residents loved it and made them promise to come back. Dare said she’d bring them back again soon. Thank you to all three lovely ladies. Weaver Vestal and her daughter, Linda Carlton, came out to see Grace Mulligan and Josephine Willis this week. The weather was so beautiful they all sat on the porch and chit-chatted. Thanks to Jimmy and Danny Leath, Jottye Newman’s two wonderful sons, who have been bringing us

fresh vegetables out of their gardens. The residents love anything homegrown, especially the tomatoes. Nothing better than a tomato out of the garden, and “that man I’m married to” says there’s nothing worse than a hothouse tomato. He is not usually picky when it comes to food he’ll eat just about anything except hothouse tomatoes! Thank you also to Pastor Phil Cook from First United Methodist Church for bringing our Sunday message. The residents who cannot get out to church really appreciate these pastors who come to us. Beside these wonderful pastors we also have fantastic Bible Study teachers who come every week too. Patricia Simmons and Mary Jane Felker come on Tuesdays and Dr. Mike Moore comes on Thursday. Thank you to all for keeping us on the straight and narrow. We played Noodle Volleyball this week and had some real competition going. Charlotte Jones, Grace Mulligan, Alystine Hare, Virginia Dickinson and I played against Katie McAdams, David and

Bo Pope, Laura Richards, Wanda Currie and Jessie Howell. I hate to admit the team I was on lost….. and I was the referee….. so I can’t even say “they cheated.” Oh well, we’ll get ‘em’ next time. We had an August Trivia contest and the grand winner of that contest was Charlotte Jones. She knew all kinds of things – like Richard Nixon was the lst president to resign, Francis Scott Key was born in August, the peridot is August’s gemstone, etc. Her prize, before the end of summer, is one of those delicious Frenchfried ice creams from El Ranchitos. “Bo” Pope came in second. We have two residents who are feeling poorly and we hope you’ll remember them as you pray. Martha Jane Williams has not felt well all week and neither has Joan Lanphere. Don Markwart fell and broke his wrist this week also, but as the old saying goes “you can’t keep a good man down” and sure enough he’s out on the front porch in the midst of everything as I type. Come see us, we miss you.

Genealogy Genealogy Genie Genie This week, we continue the William C. Bruce family… Charlotte Taylor Edney, second wife of William C. Bruce, was born in 1808 in Williamson County. Her parents were Alson Edney and Mary (Polly) Dunham (daughter of John and Jenny Dunham). John was one of the founding fathers of Nashville. He traveled by land bringing cattle, sheep, etc with other men going ahead to prepare the way. Poly came with her mother and sisters on John Donelson’s flotilla in 1780. Charlotte’s father died in 1816 with a large estate. Her mother, Polly Edney, died unexpectedly in 1824 when Polly was 16 years of age. It is thought that she went to live with her older sister Sarah (Sally) who had married Harris Cabler and by 1830 they were living in Haywood County. Charlotte first married Solomon Griffin on 4 Apr 1834 in Haywood County and soon moved to Louisiana. Solomon was the owner of a sugar plantation and refinery there. They had one child together, Albert Griffin, born in 1836. Her husband, Solomon, was tragically killed in 1837 by slaves. Whether they were his own slaves, isn’t known. Her brother-in-law,

Kathryn told her she lived in Brentwood (just outside Nashville) and was surprised that she was on her way there. They exchanged phone numbers and met at the Williamson County Archives in Franklin to do research. They exchanged photos, stories and the families spent the next day together.

The Stanton joint Neighborhood Watch/ Fire Department Emergency Organization meeting last week went very well. We actually had three different things going on at that meeting and some may be a bit confused so I’ll try to straighten it out for you. As the Stanton Neighborhood Watch, we were gathering names from residents who wanted to participate in the community effort to better organize ourselves from people making phone calls to those able to obtain food and water, etc. during emergency situations. A sheet was provided for those who had particular skills or equipment which could be used if needed. The other two programs were for those who want to become more advanced. One of these was the CERT program presented by Curtis Howard. This program required 20 hours of training and teaches: how to turn off your gas, electricity, water, very basic CPR and other things which may benefit you - not only personally, but to help your neighbors as well until authorities arrive. You may check out the manuals from the Town Hall to see if you are interested in participating in this particular program. The third option was a search and rescue organization forming under the Stanton Volunteer Fire Department. This team will require more intense training and will meet once a month. For quite some time now Fire Chief Robert (Rooster) Dancy and other members (Kim Howard) of our Volunteer Fire Dept. have been going out after thunderstorms and clearing area roadways to ensure you will be able to get to work the next morning. If downed electrical lines are found,

they notify authorities and stand guard to make sure no traffic runs through them until those authorities arrive. If no lines are down in the trees and they are able to cut them up and move them off the roadways themselves, they do so. Most of us were not aware of the efforts put out by our dedicated department until recently. When we discovered this, some of us decided we needed to chip in and help. We’ve learned when storms, floods, etc. hit Haywood County, they don’t just hit Stanton, all of Haywood County is affected. We’ve also learned the Brownsville/ Haywood County Rescue Squad can’t be everywhere at one time, especially during widespread emergencies,

thus the need for more locally experienced rescue personnel to help out during these times. These individuals will be a part of the last option. These groups are being organized to take care of our area until more experienced help arrives, at which point chain of command will prevail according to the type of emergency situation at hand. 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.
