Walgreens entered into an agreement to purchase the drug store chain that includes the USA Drug, Super D Drug, May’s Drug, Med-X and Drug Warehouse names on July 5, 2012, from Stephen L. LaFrance Holdings Inc. for an estimated $438 million. The purchase included 144 stores located in Arkansas, Kansas, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, Oklahoma and Tennessee. The Brownsville Super D Drug Store closed its doors for the last time

Head-on collision on Hickory Grove Road One airlifted from the scene

Super D Drug store closed its doors for the last time Wedensday, September 26. All prescriptions that were left with the store were automatically transferred to Walgreens. Wednesday, September 26 at 6pm. Hundreds of prescriptions that remained with Super D Wednesday at closing were automatically transferred to Walgreens. The phone numbers have also been transferred; meaning that if you try to call Super D you will now actually be calling Walgreens.

The employees, most of who had been with the company for many years, were sad to see the doors close. Dr. Allan Primrose, pharmacy manager, said, “ We want our former customers to understand how much their business meant to us. We truly appreciated their loyalty, and wish

them the best with their future pharmacy needs.” In a press release about the acquisition, Walgreens CEO Greg Wasson said, “This acquisition expands our business in an important region of the country, and it will provide significant new pharmacy business for us in this region.”

Town of Stanton board meets Sterbinsky requests full-time position BY: JENNIFER WILLIS jwillis@statesgraphic.com

A two-car head on collision occurred on Hickory Grove Road Wednesday, September 19, which resulted in one person being airlifted from the scene. No further information was available as of press time.

The Town of Stanton held its regular monthly meeting on Tuesday, September 18. During the course of the meeting, Mayor Allan Sterbinsky made a request that he be made a full-time mayor, with a salary of $31,200 per year. He is currently paid $150 per month for his services to the town. Sterbinsky is currently a psychometric theory and testing consultant with the JacksonMadison County School System, as well as the University of Memphis, but is willing to give up that position

Stanton’s Town Hall to devote all of his time to the Town of Stanton. “My work involves very specialized training, so there obviously is not a whole lot of use on a mass scale,” said Sterbinsky during an interview. He did state that he would continue to do consulting

work on the side. His request passed the first reading. Also discussed during the meeting was the Town budget, which passed the first reading as well. Included in the budget see STANTON page A3

Liquor Store applicants and potential store locations revealed BY: JENNIFER WILLIS jwillis@statesgraphic.com Residents voted in June to allow the sale of package liquor in Brownsville, and the Mayor and Board of Aldermen amended Title 8 of the Municipal Code to include Chapter 3, Package Liquor Sales. The Mayor and Board of Aldermen placed a limit on the number of licenses to be issued to three, which equals one issued license per zone. Zone 1 is the area that includes the north and south sides of Jefferson Street from South Washington Avenue east to the

city limits, then runs north and west to Washington Avenue, but does not include any portion of Washington Avenue. Zone 2 is the area that includes the east and west sides of North Washington Avenue, Court Square, and then runs west and north to include the north and south sides of West Main Street, then southwest to include the east and west sides of Grand Avenue. Zone 3 is the area that runs east and south from Grand Avenue, but does not include any portion of West Main Street, to Jefferson Street, and does not include any portion of Jefferson Street. Ten people filled out 24

applications, at a fee of $500 per application. Those applicants are: Billy S. Butler, Courtney Ann Schroeppel, Michael McCaslin, Thomas Russell, Joe S. Moore, Ranjodh Singh Poparal, Robert Allen, Richard Whaley, Jr., Samuel T. Bryant and Benard D. Farber. The proposed addresses include: 3796 Anderson Avenue, Zone 3, five applications; 915 Scott Street, Zone 2, one application; 317 West Main Street, Zone 2, one application; 2556 North Washington Avenue, Zone 2, one application; 1142 North Washington Avenue, Zone 2, five applications;

Dupree Avenue (Brownsville Shopping Center), Zone 1, one application; 483 North Dupree Street, Zone 1, five applications; 156 South Dupree Street, Zone 1, one application; 120 South Dupree Street, Zone 1, four applications. The City of Brownsville employed a CPA firm out of Jackson to oversee the handling of applications, and to hold a random drawing for the liquor store licenses. The firm is verifying the information on all 24 applications, and will notify the City of the number of qualified applicants. A random drawing for licenses is scheduled to take place on

Wednesday, October 3 at 1pm at City Hall. The Board of the Mayor and Aldermen will vote in a called meeting on Monday, October 8 to award the Certificates of Compliance to the three successful applicants. Afterwards, each applicant awarded with the compliance certificate will have to make an application to the State Alcoholic Beverage Commission for the final license to operate.

The Boys & Girls Club of Brownsville BY: JENNIFER WILLIS jwillis@statesgraphic.com The local Boys & Girls Club strives to provide youth with a safe place to spend time during nonschool hours, including summer break, as an alternative to hanging out on the streets or being at home alone. The program offers youth a chance to play and have fun, but also the opportunity to learn and build new skills in an attempt to “raise each child’s belief that he or she can succeed and receive recognition for their accomplishments.” The Club also strives to develop ongoing relationships between the children and caring adults, establish connections to new friends in a positive environment, reinforce a sense of belonging and to help them understand personal accountability, as well as civic responsibility. The Club also promotes generationchanging programs that support a commitment to learning, positive values, healthy habits and high expectations for success as an adult. The Boys & Girls Club participates in several programs. The first of those is “Project Learn,” which involves activities designed to improve academic success. The program includes “Power Hour” and

other high yield learning activities. “Power Hour” is the first hour that members arrive at the club. All club members are required to work on their homework, or work on other educational materials provided by the Club. The staff members are always available to help members with their homework. High yield learning activities “infuse learning with fun.” Examples are “math bingo” and a “phone book scavenger hunt.” There are sports and recreation programs and activities conducted in the gymnasium and game room. These activities are designed to develop and promote fitness, help increase social skills and teach good sportsmanship. An example of these activities is allowing members to use the PlayStation Kinect in the game room, which allows members to simultaneously play games and participate in physical activities. The “Club Tech” program is dedicated to improving member’s technological skills. During “Skill Tech,” members are put through a variety of drills by a cartoon character while learning to use computer programs like Microsoft Word and Power Point. “Kid’s College” allows club members to answer questions, and after answering three correctly, allows them a specific

time to play a game. The program is designed to help members prepare for TCAP testing. The backpack program allows each club member to receive a backpack of food every Friday, so that they will always have food to eat over the weekend. Club members can earn “Power Dollars” for spend in the “Power Store” for completing their homework, displaying good character and participating in various activities that the club offers. Funding for the Boys & Girls Club comes from a Lottery for Education After School Program (LEAP) grant from the State of Tennessee, United Way, fundraisers and private donations. The Boys & Girls Club currently has 95 members, with an average daily attendance of 60 to 65 members. The cost of becoming a member is $35 per year, with no additional fees except for the seven weeks of Summer Camp. Anna Burch, club member, said, “The Boys & Girls Club is a good environment for me. I have learned Spanish here, and I have also learned how to express my feelings better.” “It’s helped me with my grades in school. I get my homework done,” said Kyron Stocking.

STANTON continued was a request to purchase the Town’s constable, Daniel Groh, a taser. During an interview, Groh stated that he is certified to carry a taser. The Mayor’s Monthly Report covered other business. The first item was to announce that the solar panels on the roof of city hall have generated enough electricity so far to power 196 houses for one day, totaling 5.93 MwH, which generates an income

of approximately $100 per month for Stanton. Stanton received a $750,000 grant for their ditch project. It was reported that the work south of the railroad tracks is nearly complete. The mayor is awaiting final approval from the railroad before the work can be completed. Stanton also received a $1,000,000 grant, with which the mayor had hoped to use to build a new tornado and flood shelter. However,

HUD did not approve that request, so a new request has been made to purchase a brush truck for the fire department, two stationary generators and some additional flood mitigation work to be done on the west side of Stanton. Stanton also received a $500,000 CDGB grant for building homes for the citizens of Stanton who meet income and other requirement criteria. The Mayor reported that the papers had been signed

with a contractor, and that the first house should be completed in December. It was reported that brickwork to the Stanton Town Hall and Cannery is almost complete. Additional work will include repairs to the roof, covering the ditch running down the middle of the cannery and adding an ADA ramp for accessibility. The mayor reported that the implementation of traffic cameras in Stanton has been put on hold

due to new regulations from the state. He is in conversations with the vendors regarding the new regulations. A $100,000 grant proposal has been submitted for repairs to the Stanton Health Clinic, and work is underway. The boiler in the Cannery was inspected, and it was found to be in need of some repairs, but it should be functional for the next three to five years. It was reported that the repairs have

been made. Southwest engineers inspected the water treatment for the boiler. Their report indicated a scale buildup, and a water softener was recommended to prevent the buildup in the future. The next Stanton board meeting will be held at Town Hall on October 16 at 7pm. There will be a public hearing before the meeting, which will include the second reading of Mayor Sterbinsky’s proposal for a full-time position.

Five arrested for non-compliance On September 24, officers with the Brownsville Police Department and the Tennessee Board of Probation and Parole Conducted a sex offender compliance check. The event was used to determine whether the registered sex offenders living in Brownsville were in compliance with the state laws concerning their registration with local law enforcement and TBI. Officers checked the compliance of 27 sex offenders and found that six were not in compliance. Of those six, five were arrested for being in violation of the sex offender registry. Those arrested were: Tony Hammond, age 28, of 473 Josephine Drive, James Morton, age 47, of 523 South McLemore, Charles Edward Perry, age 38, of 810 North McLemore, Michael Green (aka Michael Chiears), age 34, of 1003 North McLemore and William Anthony Jeter, age 39, of 1002 South Washington.

Foreign exchange students visit Brownsville BY: JENNIFER WILLIS jwillis@statesgraphic. com Two foreign exchange students are visiting Brownsville, and living in the home of Mark and Cindy Covington. Claudia Vouk is a 17-year-old high school senior from Torino, Italy. “I wanted to do the exchange student program to improve my English, study the American economics and learn about American culture,” said Volk, who wants to pursue a degree in economics. Leonie Westmann is a 16-year-old high school junior from Klein Heidorn, Germany. “I wanted to participate in the exchange student program to learn to speak better English and learn about the American culture and religion,” said Westmann, who plans on becoming an English teacher. It is the first time that either teen has participated in the

exchange program, and they are both very excited about it. The program lasts throughout the school year, and afterwards they are allowed to stay for an additional two weeks, but then they must return home. When the teens were asked what they enjoyed most about their experience, Westmann said “I really enjoy the host family. The Covington’s and all of the other people here are very nice, which is great because it’s not like that everywhere.” She also enjoys Powderpuff football, and really enjoyed the homecoming parade. “Being able to participate is different than sitting in the audience and watching,” she said. Vouk enjoys a lot of the same things that Westmann enjoys, and noted that she loves the pep rallies. “It’s a whole new experience with everyone screaming and having a good time. Also at homecoming a lot of the students

actually dressed up and weren’t afraid to participate,” said Vouk. The students noted that so much is different in America. For example, food proportions here are very different. The American’s small order is their large order. Westmann’s favorite class at Haywood High School is yearbook. She loves taking pictures and capturing all of the memories. Photography is a hobby of hers. Vouk enjoys economics class, as it is something she plans to do in the future. “All of the teachers are very nice here. And what I like most about them is that they do not keep their families out of their workplace. Where I come from, teachers don’t keep pictures of their families on their desks like they do here,” said Westmann. Claudia and Leonie are the sixth and seventh exchange students for Mark and Cindy Covington. “It gives us a chance to see what it is like in different cultures, and

Pictured back, left to right, Claudie Vouk, Leonie Westmann and Teresa Covington. Pictured seated in front is Cindy Covington. it gives them a chance to see what America is like,” said Cindy Covington. “We know that it is something that the students want to do, and we know that if we didn’t participate

the children may not get the opportunity to participate.” The Covington’s have enjoyed having each of their exchange students over the years, and keep in contact with them

through Facebook and other resources once they return home. The family has planned a trip to Kentucky to see the Mammoth Caves.

Off the Beaten Path with Jerry Wilson

A homecoming extravaganza Last Friday was both a fun and exciting time in Brownsville and Haywood County. Haywood High School held its annual football homecoming. The school turned out with great participation and expectation. The event was the result of combined communitywide participation that resulted in a great day for the school and football program. The day included an early afternoon parade, a well attended tailgate celebration and concluded with the Tomcats scoring a sounding victory over Fayette-Ware of Somerville. Last year, the Tomcat football program entered a new era under Coach Slade Calhoun. Coach Calhoun started the season with a limited roster of athletes as well as a deleted coaching staff. It was obvious that the program would also be going through a rebuilding mode. The entire community joined in the challenge. Supporters from across the community came to the forefront and once again brought solidarity toward the rebuilding of the program. Although the team had only one victory last year,

supporters still stuck with the program. This year, some things are the same and some things are not. The enthusiasm and support for the program is still obvious but team progress has shown much improvement. With a sizeable increase in the roster and more coaches brought into the program, results are already showing signs that rebuilding efforts are bringing forth results. This year at mid season, the team record is 2-3. Two of those loses could have easily been victories as the Tomcats were in the ballgames all the way and lost by less than a touchdown in two of the loses. All were very exciting as the Tomcats were in the game well into the fourth quarter. The remainder of the season will bring fourth great challenges but other victories are certainly possible. Junior high athletes are also using the same playbook. Therefore, they are on the same page as the high school athletes. They will no longer have to learn a new playbook once they enter high school and will have an edge as they move up. There seems to be another very important factor that is in play in the

program. The coaching staffs even work together during varsity games. Therefore, the players have the presence of their previous coach. There seems to be something going off the field that may also be somewhat responsible with what’s happening on the field. There is talk among some of the parents and athletes about the coming together as a family. These athletes and parents like the comparison between a family and a team where the players look out for each other. It is good to know that the coaches are also serious in their efforts to build character. The players need to know there’s more to life than football. If these players are taught the importance of good morals and integrity, personal responsibility, teamwork and physical stamina, we will continue to see progress in this program. I personally salute everyone involved that led to the great homecoming extravaganza as well as the excitement that continued throughout homecoming day. See you at the ball park for another exciting game with our Tomcats.

It’s sad, but true For the last week or so, I have been noticing how inconsiderate some people can be to others. It is especially apparent to me when I drop off and pick up my son from Anderson. Some of the other parents are so inconsiderate to the other parents. For instance, when you park to walk your child in or pick them up, the parking spaces are designed to hold two cars. One should pull all the way up, which will allow enough room for another car to park behind them. The first car should be able to pull straight out, and the other car should be able to back out. In theory, it should work smoothly. However, the problem arises with people’s general lack of consideration for others. People driving through the drop off line will not, as a general rule, let you pull out. And it amazes me the number of people who will park behind the second car, blocking not only them in, but holding up the line of traffic behind them. I have seen too many people pull up, park in a manner that blocks the entire flow of traffic, and not care one bit. Sometimes they get out themselves, and other times a passenger gets out to either drop off or pick up a child. Either way, it is completely and utterly inconsiderate. Now, correct me if I’m wrong, but are we not suppose to, at ALL times,

treat each other the way that we would like to be treated. And what makes the whole situation even more disappointing, is that my eight-yearold daughter made the following comment as we were walking back to our car this morning: “Mommy, why are the grown-ups here so mean?” Of course I asked her what she meant, and she said, “none of these people here are nice to each other, they should remember the Golden Rule.” She can see as a child how inconsiderate us adults are being towards each other. And, unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for the parents to give each other “dirty looks,” and what’s worse, on occasion, cuss at someone they don’t know because they are in a hurry. And, of course, they don’t stop to think that they are not the only person trying to drop kids off at more than one school and make it work on time, much less take time to think about what kind of example they are setting for their children. Be kind. Be courteous. It’s that simple. It is situations like those that make me lose faith in humanity in general. We, as a society, seem so wrapped up in our own existence that we forget about the importance of doing something as simple as being polite. My daughter recently came home from school,

and was upset when she was telling me about a little girl on the playground that none of the other kids would play with. I, of course, asked her what she did and why she was upset about it. “Momma, they were being mean and not playing with her because she was new, but I asked her what her name was and we played together,” she said. I’m not sure if I have ever been as proud of her as I was in that moment. My sweet, polite and kindhearted child acted more adult that some of us actual adults do. She chose to do the right thing when some of us adults wouldn’t have even noticed, much less cared. On occasion, things that I witness help me to restore a little of my faith in humanity. For instance, I watched a person take time to help an elderly lady walk all the way back to her car after National Night Out. I’d just like to ask everyone to slow down and take time to be considerate of others. If you see an elderly person loading groceries into their car, be polite and offer to help. If someone is trying to leave the school parking lot, be courteous and allow him or her to pull in front of you. If someone is having a bad day, say something to make him or her smile. It sounds so simple, yet we adults act like it is so hard.

Peeples

By 28th Judicial District Circuit Court Judge Clayburn Peeples

Crying Foul A few months ago I found myself caught live in a place I wouldn’t normally be caught dead, WalMart on a Saturday night. Nothing against WalMart, mind you. I’m a huge WalMart fan. I love shopping there. But I try to avoid the place on Saturday nights. On this occasion, however, we had run out of something we had to have before morning, so I drove over and got there about nine-thirty. I had just picked up a bag of barbecue potato chips (might as well treat myself as long as I was there) and was headed down the middle of the store in the direction of the paint thinner when a woman pushing a very full cart about ten feet away from me turned back and yelled at a small girl following from about 60 feet away. “I told you to keep up,” she shouted. “If you don’t get up here right now, I’m going to whip your . . . !” She didn’t say, “bottom.” Now I’m sure she was tired and cranky, and perhaps she, unlike me, had worked hard all day long, and I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt as to why she had a fouryear-old girl out at that time of the night. Life is an incredible struggle for many, many people these days, and not everybody has someone at home to leave the kids with when the groceries have to be bought. But she shouldn’t have used that word, in that way, in a public place. Nobody should. I thought about her the other day when I read about a Massachusetts town which has passed an ordinance imposing a twenty-dollar fine for swearing in public. The local merchants’ association had pushed for it because they were fed up with foul mouthed teenagers driving their customers away. Not surprisingly, the ordinance was met with outrage among civil liberties/free speech advocates. The town council was denounced across the board by media outlets, all the way from Fox News to The Washington Post and the Massachusetts ACLU. Demonstrators, one from as far away as New Mexico, staged protests in which they waived vulgarly worded placards and demanded the right to turn the air blue with their “freedom of expression.” A similar outcry erupted in Ogden, Utah after the city council there proposed a “sportsmanship” ordinance for its city parks

that prohibited the use of “obscene or profane language” at ballfields and parks in the city. The goal of the ordinance was to “encourage more civility and further the atmosphere of civility at recreational events where spectators, officials and parents can feel comfortable.” Good luck to them, but I’m not optimistic. Ever since the Supreme Court ruled (several years ago) that government cannot prohibit public speech just because it contains profane or vulgar language, communities all across the country have wrestled with this problem, and most of them have failed or just given up the effort. And it shows. If you don’t believe me, just walk through a mall or go to a ball game. Anywhere. It wasn’t always like this in America. Even before he was elected our first president, George Washington, in 1775, banned cursing among his troops. “The foolish and wicked practice of profane cursing and swearing,” he said, “is a vice so mean and low that every person of sense and character detests and despises it.” But that, as they say, was then. Now, vulgar language is referred to as “colorful.” Just as our clothing has become crude and cheap, even in formerly formal situations, so has our language. Swearing in public is now so commonplace that most people don’t even raise an eyebrow when they hear it, and the accepted definition of “free speech” is so expansive, one risks being called a reactionary prude by even complaining about it at all. But the fact that we may be able to legally use such language in front of others doesn’t mean we should. It may be that the

people trumpeting the rights of vile mouthed people to curse in front of our children aren’t really as representative of our real values as the media would have us believe. Several studies have been done in the last few years on profanity in the workplace, for example, and the results might surprise you. Among employers, 81% believe cursing calls an employee’s professionalism into question. Seventy percent believe it indicates a lack of control and a lack of maturity. More than half say that when employees swear it makes them seem less intelligent. Sixty-four percent say they think less of employees who swear, and 57% said they would be less likely to promote employees who swear at work. Apparently even employers who swear themselves think less of employees who do likewise. Other studies, outside the workplace, show that at least half the people you encounter will be offended to some degree if you swear in their presence. Swearing endangers your social relationships; it makes many people uncomfortable being around you, and it contributes to the decline of civility in America. And count on this; it offends more people than you realize, even many of those who say they don’t mind it. And even if you think it doesn’t harm you professionally or socially, it’s still a good idea to watch what you say. I mean, heck, if for no other reason, there might be ladies within hearing range. You do remember ladies, don’t you?

Devotional Page

Thursday, September 27, 2012

Weekly Devotional What if God were to allow you to go back to September 10, 2011. What if He put you on the 105th floor of the World Trade Center and told you to tell people about salvation. Knowing that on September 11 most, if not all, these people would be dead, how would you preach the gospel to them? Would you say, “Jesus wants to make your lives happy and fulfilled,” or would you say, “turn to Christ for the sake of your souls…time is running out and you will have to face the judgment.” It doesn’t make much sense to tell people who will be dead the next day that they can have happy and joyful lives, does it? Then why do we feel compelled to speak this way to anyone? Everyone you and I meet might pass away in the very next breath. The Apostles message was consistent. Paul said that God, “commands all people everywhere to repent, because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed.” (Acts 17:30-31) Jason Velotta - Christ Church ASSEMBLY OF GOD DANCYVILLE ASSEMBLY OF GOD 13925 Hwy 76 North FIRST ASSEMBLY OF GOD 700 N.

Hometown Hero Roland Reid

BY: JENNIFER WILLIS jwillis@statesgraphic.com

“I’m not a hero, I’m just an ordinary guy,” is the first thing that Haywood County General Sessions and Juvenile Court Judge Roland Reid told me when I sat down in his office for an interview. However, after our hour-long talk, it was apparent that he is a role-model, an asset to Haywood County and indeed a Hometown Hero. The third of four children born to Roland and Ann Reid, he has been in Haywood County his entire life. His parents farmed for a living, and he grew up with a dream of following in his parent’s footsteps. However, his parents, who had firm beliefs in the importance of education, stressed to him that he needed to follow his own path. After graduating from Haywood High School in 1972, Reid went onto college, but returned home after one year of study. For a little more than five years he held several different jobs, including working at American Air Filter and Owens Corning. His family continually stressed the importance of getting an education, and pushed him to go back to college. “I didn’t know what I wanted to do. I grew up on a farm, and had a love for animals, so I thought it would be pretty cool to be a Veterinarian,” said Reid. Reid headed to The University of Tennessee at Knoxville where he studied animal science as a pre-veterinary student. He graduated, with honors, in 1981 with a Bachelors degree in Animal Science. “I never thought about studying law and becoming an attorney, but while I was waiting to apply to veterinary school, someone dared me to take the law school entrance exam,” said Reid. He took the test in December of 1982, and shortly thereafter received a letter of acceptance into the Memphis State University School of Law, and “the rest is history,” said Reid. Reid earned his Juris Doctorate in 1986, and went to work at a law firm in Jackson. In 1987, he returned to Brownsville to practice at the law firm of Reid and Banks alongside Lyle Reid and Larry Banks. Reid continued to practice at that firm until 1993 when he was appointed to fill the vacancy as Haywood County General Sessions and Juvenile Court Judge after the passing of Judge Bond. He was elected to the same position in 1994, and has since been reelected twice. In 2006 he became a full-time judge. Reid gives so much to Haywood County in so many different forms. He created the Haywood County Teen Court Program, which was the first of it’s kind in West Tennessee, and only the third like it in the entire

state. He served on the Carl Perkins Center Advisory Board for eight years, and has also served on the Advisory Board for the Boys and Girls Club. Reid’s face lights up when he begins to talk about his involvement with programs for children. An avid deer hunter, he donates his time to take kids hunting for a day, with the hope of helping them find a trophy deer to return home with. He is also very involved with the Hatchie River Hunting For a Cure program, which donates all proceeds earned to St. Jude Children’s Hospital and the Ayers Clinic. This past August, the HRHFAC program sponsored a fishing rodeo at “The Bird’s Nest,” and was a big hit with local children. “The program is close to my heart because they work a lot with disabled and special needs children,” said Reid. Reid earned the Wildlife Conservationist Award in 1990, and was appointed to the Tennessee Commission for Children and Youth by Governor Phil Bredesen in 2008. Reid and his wife, Martha Jo, enjoy cooking. They make sourdough bread and rolls, 90% of which they donate to people who are sick or in need, or to benefits to help people that are sick or in need. They recently donated loaves of sourdough bread and sourdough rolls to the benefit for Ceree Canada. When Reid has a little time to relax, he enjoys deer hunting in the fall, and working on his home and lawn in the spring and summer. Reid and his wife have four children: Anna Reid, Michael Reid, R.C. Waddell and Layne Waddell McLaughlin. They are also the proud grandparents to three grandsons, and “there are more on the way,” said Reid. “I am not concerned with the recognition that comes along with

being a judge, I am more embarrassed by it than anything,” said Reid. “I’m just a normal guy that comes to work and does my job, then I go home like everybody else.” After our interview, I left Judge Roland Reid’s office with a little more faith in humanity. He devotes so much of himself to the residents of Haywood County, especially the youth. We had a brief conversation after the formal interview, and it was apparent to me that he has a genuine, whole-hearted desire to ensure that Haywood County’s youth have all of the help they need to get wherever it is they want to go in their lives, and take full advantage of all opportunities that are afforded to them. That, along with his true love for this county, is what makes him a Hometown Hero. Reid relaxes by a lake.

Reid donated a hunt to Chase Green of Crockett County, and helped him find his first “trophy” deer.

school. Among the special guests for the ribbon cutting is International Fan Club President Elle Denneman, who will be traveling from the Netherlands. “We are excited to meet and host so many of Tina’s fans in her home county,� says Center Director Sonia Outlaw-Clark.� According to Clark, a charter bus is coming from Oklahoma; and other fans from around the world are flying into Memphis to join the

celebration. Fans will get an opportunity to hear a professional tribute show Saturday when the Starr Fisher band comes to Carver High.

“5 Costly Insurance Mistakes� Do you need to save money? Avoid these 5 costly insurance mistakes. With times hard as they are today, we all need to find ways to save a dime every chance we get. There are smart ways we can go about saving money, and there are ways to save that cost us when it comes to insurance. In this article I will attempt to explain ways you might consider in order to save on your home and auto insurance, but you will need to be careful to not find yourself underinsured. Tight money is a term we have all heard lately. When money is tight it is very important for us to be financially protected to withstand those unexpected incidences that will popup when we least expect them. By having the right type of insurance coverage we can cut our insurance costs and still be covered for those unexpected incidences. We want to looks at the 5 costly mistakes that you, our clients, should be careful not to make. First, let’s look at your home. Your home is probably the most expensive asset you own. You need to make sure that it is fully covered in case of that unfortunate incident or disaster. With real estate prices for homes fluctuating up and down you need to make sure not to reduce your insurance coverage on your home. Some homeowners are under the impression that as real estate values go down they need to lower the amount of insurance on their home. Insurance is designed to cover the cost of rebuilding your home, not the sales price you would receive if you sold your home. Always make sure that you

have ample coverage to completely rebuild your home and to replace your contents. A better way to save on insurance premiums is to raise your deductible. An example would be to raise you deductible from $500 to $1,000 could save you as much as 25% on your premium. The higher the deductible the more you will be able to lower your premium. It all comes down to;�can you afford to pay more (deductible) to save more (premium).� Second, you need to select an insurance company by its competiveness within the insurance market; its sound financial standing; and its ability to provide good customer service. Savings can be accomplished by: investigating, through independent rating agencies, the financial strength of an insurance company; discussing with friends the type of claims experience that they have encountered with their insurance carrier; and selecting an insurance company that will respond to your needs and handle with fairness and efficiency their claims. Third, we have had flooding in our county in recent years. Flood insurance is extremely important as it is not normally covered under standard homeowner and renters insurance policies. Coverage for floods is available from the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), as well as from some private insurance companies. Many homeowners are unaware of their risk for flooding. Statistics prove that 25% of all flood loses occur in low risk areas. Savings can be achieved by purchasing a home that is not in a flood zone. Remember to always check with NFIP to see whether or

not the home you are considering buying lies in a flood zone. You might want to look at a home that is not in a designated flood zone. If you are already living in a flood zone, look for ways you might mitigate to reduce your risk of flood damage and consider purchasing flood insurance. Fourth, when you only purchase the legally required amount of liability for your car, you might find yourself paying more out-of-your pocket. In today’s society, people are more prone to get an attorney to litigate their claim. The cost can be very expensive. Savings can be achieved by dropping collision and/or comprehensive coverage on older cars worth less than $1,000. Consumer groups and the insurance industry recommend a minimum of $100,000 of bodily injury per person and $300,000 per accident. Finally, do not neglect to buy renters insurance, if you do not own your home. A renter’s policy covers your possessions and additional living expenses, if you have to vacate due to a disaster. Of equal importance, renters insurance covers events if someone is injured in your home and decides to sue. Savings can be realized by looking into a multipolicy discount. If you purchase several policies from the same insurer generally savings can be realized. Prepared by: Smith Insurance and Financial Group, Inc. 34 N.

Health Science students to help with school health screenings Haywood County Schools will employ the services of HHS Career and Tech students to help with health screenings at another school. Cindy

Smith, Haywood Schools Health Coordinator, and Gail Steele, school nurse, came to Health Science teacher Julie Taylorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s classroom recently to

perform an in-service for the students on the equipment and forms they will be using for health screenings at Haywood Elementary on

September 26, 27, 28. Nursing education class students are Thaddeus Matthews, Dundre Jarrett, Maggie Herron, Allix Lonon, Jennifer Hampton,

Erin Dennis, Catrecia Bell, Katie Lewis, Diamond Jackson, LaDawn Ammons, and Brandy Jones.

Anderson to implement new pick-up routine for pre-k BY: JENNIFER WILLIS jwillis@statesgraphic.com For the past several years, the parking lot at Anderson Early Childhood Center has been congested during afternoon dismissal. Even with staggered dismissal times, congestion remains a problem, and there is no option for expansion available to the school. Currently, pre-k students are to be at school by 7:45am, and kindergarten students are to be at school by 8am. Half of

the pre-k classes are dismissed at 2pm, and the other half at 2:15pm. Kindergarten students are also dismissed in the same fashion, with half dismissing at 2:30 and the other half at 2:45. The problem with congestion seems to stem from parents arriving a half-hour, and in some cases even longer, before their childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scheduled dismissal time. In an attempt to make dismissal times flow more smoothly, Anderson ECC principal Trudy Hughes and her faculty and staff have had

â&#x20AC;&#x153;brainstorming sessionsâ&#x20AC;? to come up with ideas to improve the ongoing difficulty in the parking lot at pick-up time for pre-k students. In an attempt to improve the flow of traffic during pick-up times, a color-coded parking permit system will be put into effect in the coming weeks. Each parent will be issued two color-coded parking permits with their childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dismissal time printed on it. Parents who have a child with a 2pm pick-up time will

be allowed on the parking lot a few minutes before 2pm, and must be off of the parking lot by 2:15pm. Parents whose child has a dismissal time of 2:15pm will not be allowed on the parking lot until 2:15pm, and will be required to be off of the parking lot by 2:30pm. The new pick-up policy will be monitored by the administration. The following classes have a 2pm dismissal time, and will be issued a red tag: Mary Currie, Laurel Garrett, Sami Jo

Gore, Tonya Madere and Pam Thomason. Blue tags will be issued for classes with a 2:15pm dismissal time, and they are Allison Ferrell, Suzie May, Krista Parker, Leslie Phillips and Angela Yoder. The administration is asking for everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s help and cooperation in making the new policy beneficial for the parents and their children.

She was named First Team All-District in 2012 after posting an outstanding 2.14 ERA and striking out 118 batters. Peter Mofatt, who is

the varsity softball head coach at Fayette Academy, said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I watched as Sara improved every year as a pitcher. She was an important part of our successful run to the Final Four of the state tournament in 2011. Sara worked hard to get this opportunity, and we wish her all the best as she takes her talents to the next level of competition.

She was an integral part of the resurgence of our softball program.â&#x20AC;? Sarah is the daughter of Roger and Donna Cowan of Whiteville. She is the granddaughter Jacqueline Smith and the late Floyd H. Smith of Brownsville, and Roselyn Cowan and the late James Cowan of Whiteville.

Lakeview Subdivision

Firefighters visit Anderson students BY: JENNIFER WILLIS jwillis@statesgraphic.com Kindergarten students at Anderson Early Childhood Center studied “community helpers” last week, and discussed who they are and why they are important. Volunteer firefighters from Haywood County District 9 Volunteer Fire Department visited with the students, and allowed them to explore their fire engine and rescue truck. Several classes visited

the firemen in four 30-minute sessions, and were taught the importance of fire safety. District 9 Captain Jere Wright spoke to the children about the importance of having a fire plan at their homes, and what they should and should not do if their home catches on fire. He also warned them of the dangers of playing with matches and lighters. The children split into groups, half visiting Captain Wright and firefighter Leann Beck

with the fire engine, and the other half visiting firefighter and 1st responders Jesse Hudnall and Bill Sinclair with the rescue truck. Captain Wright and Beck showed the children all of the equipment that they use when fighting fire, while Hudnall and Sinclair showed the children the equipment that they use from the rescue truck when someone is hurt and needs their help.

Haywood routs Fayette-Ware on homecoming night By JEFF IRELAND jireland@statesgraphic.com Last season Haywood was on the wrong end of more than one lopsided score. Just how much things have changed this season was on display Friday night for homecoming as the Tomcats overwhelmed Fayette-Ware in the second quarter en route to a convincing 59-6 win. “It feels pretty good,” said second-year head coach Slade Calhoun, whose team moved to 2-3 on the season. “Hopefully we can get accustomed to it.” Bryce Young hit Martez Comage on a pair of touchdown passes early in the second quarter to push the lead to 24-0. The onslaught continued when Haywood's Equavious Barbee intercepted a pass and Young hit Jalen Bond on a 15yard touchdown pass to put the Tomcats ahead 30-0 with 1:47 left in the first half. With 34 seconds left in the

second quarter, Young scored on a one-yard run that gave Haywood a 38-0 halftime lead. Young, who gave way to Will Austin after one series in the third quarter, threw four touchdown passes. “It feels amazing,” Young said after the game. “We worked hard in the offseason and it paid off. I just want to give a good shout out to my offensive line. They're the reason (we won).” Comage continued his strong play of late with a pair of TD receptions. “We're just working hard in practice,” Comage said when asked about the difference between this year and last. “Everybody is more together. We feel like we're one happy family.” Calhoun said his team made too many mistakes, but was happy with the team's overall performance. “We played as good as we could with all the distractions,” Calhoun said. “We have an

… It's awesome, but the kids can get distracted. Let me put it this way: I'm glad it's over.” Justice Brown had a big game for the Tomcats. He opened the scoring with a 40-yard touchdown run and scored on a 46yard screen early in the third quarter that made the score 45-0. Bond recovered an onside kick to set up Brown's second touchdown. With 3:52 left in the third quarter, Darvis Jarmon returned an interception 55 yards for a score. Haywood's final score came Haywood freshman Kris Johnson finds some running room in the fourth quarter against Fayette-Ware on Friday in Brownsville. Haywood won, 59-6. Photo by Jeff Ireland

when Austin hit Terrion Cooper for a 32-yard TD pass with 6:41 left in the game. The Tomcats have five games remaining on the schedule and all of them are against District 13-AA opponents. While Haywood is 0-2 in league play, a strong finish could put the Tomcats in the playoff picture. Haywood plays at Ripley tomorrow night, followed by games against Covington, South Gibson, Obion County and Milan. “The way I look at it is we're starting a brand new season,” Calhoun said. “We're starting a five-game season right now. We've gotta win three. I think if we win three, as hard as our schedule is, we're going to get in … Still, we have to take it just one game at a time.”

Freshmen Cats on a roll By JERRY WILSON The Haywood Tomcats freshmen football team is definitely on a roll this season. At press time, the team was undefeated with five wins. To measure the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success thus far, Coach Ernie Jackson took us back to the close of last season in Brighton in the Final Four of the state playoff when the team lost to Brighton by a score of 44-0. After the season, the team took a trip to Murray State in Kentucky, to celebrate their season. While visiting the weight room at the school, they noted a sign that read, â&#x20AC;&#x153;How do you want to be remembered?â&#x20AC;? Ten months and five days later, the team revisited the same field ready to take on the same team in that humiliating loss. Coach Jackson repeated to the team the same words from the sign at Murray State, â&#x20AC;&#x153;How do you want to be remembered?â&#x20AC;? He then immediately left the bus. However, this day, the score would be different. Evidently, the team had also not forgotten the words written on the sign and the young Tomcats returned home with a 42-18 victory. They added four more

Haywood freshman coach Ernie Jackson talks to his team during a break in action. consecutive victories with wins over South Gibson (44-0), Dyer County (38-20), Ripley (40-0) and Munford (44-0). The freshmen defense is led by Emmit Gooden, Rashad Brown, Alex Perkins, Markevious Williamson, and Josh Reed. The defensive

anchors are Emmit Gooden and Rashad Brown. The offense is led by quarterback Will Austin, Tyrek Evans, Dylan Simmons, Kurstan Russell and Denarius Toliver. While this team is getting it done on the football field, there is also something

happening off the field. Coach Jackson says this team is built around the concept of family. The players are looking out for each other and accepting personal responsibility. Off season, the focus continues on building character, physical fitness and toughness. These disciplines, he said,

not only build winners on the football field but also in the game of life. The Freshmen Tomcats have three regular games remaining during this season. They are Dyersburg (away), Covington (away) and Liberty School of Jackson (home).

Injured runners rejoin HHS cross country By JEFF IRELAND jireland@statesgraphic. com The Haywood High cross country team competed in the West Tennessee Fall Classic at Union University in Jackson on Saturday with junior Deonte Brown leading the way and several runners setting career-best times. Brown set a personalbest time of 17:56.15 to finish third, and senior DeMarious Douglas ran a personal best 21:39.00 to finish 31st. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure what it is about Saturday cross country meets, but the four Saturday meets the Haywood team has

competed in over the last two years have been our best races compared to the weekday meets,â&#x20AC;? said coach David Claybrooks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Five out of six student-athletes ran their career best. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also the first time this season that all Haywood runners ran under 30 minutes.â&#x20AC;? Saturday was the first time for Brown to break 18 minutes in competition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was very familiar with the course and I was not stressed at all,â&#x20AC;? Brown said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a fun and relaxed race.â&#x20AC;? Joshua Wilson ran a 24:57.94, followed by Xavier Rogers with a career-best 27:27.84. Tomcat Chris Parker

also posted a career best with a 28:10.99. Dontai Anderson finished 41st with a career-best 23:05.71. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, the race was great for me,â&#x20AC;? said Anderson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It showed me that if I put my mind to it, I can accomplish anything. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what helped me finish the race and helped me beat my PR.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I felt good about the race,â&#x20AC;? Douglas said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think I did pretty well considering I just came back. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to try and do better at our next meet.â&#x20AC;? Claybrooks said he was happy to have Douglas and Anderson, both of which missed meets with injuries,

“People who Excel” was the subject of the message. We all want to make a positive difference in the world around, but it requires discipline and determination. The church is at a crossroad today. Are we going to be sold out to the Lord, or just barely scratching the surface? Believers who are growing spiritually will produce fruit. Three qualities will be obvious in their life: faith, love and hope. Without a faith that delivers, it’s impossible to please God. Works reveal faith. Love is much more than an emotion. It’s an attitude and an action. Love is the proof of faith. Hope is an inheritance. Heaven is so close to those who believe. We can be there in a heartbeat. As believers, we never see each other for the last time. Holly Grove Church took time out in its service Sunday to pray for our nation and the

When Renovating DroughtStricken Lawns: Be on the Lookout for Weeds By Walter Battle The extended drought of the summer of 2012 has injured turfgrasses in many Tennessee lawns. Although warm-season species including bermudagrass and Zoysia have resumed growth following recent rains, University of Tennessee Extension Turfgrass Specialist Tom Samples says lawns may be thin and prone to weed invasion this fall. “Unfortunately, the combination of high temperatures and severe drought may have been lethal to some cool-season turfgrasses,” he adds. The expert says in Tennessee, bermudagrass and Zoysia usually respond very favorably to a fertilizer application in September. However, fertilizer burn is a real possibility. “To avoid fertilizer burn, no more than one pound of highly water-soluble nitrogen (N) should be applied per 1,000 square feet,” Samples said. Many fertilizer manufacturers market “winterizer” f o r m u l a t i o n s specifically for latesummer or early fall fertilization of warm-

season turfgrasses. Samples reminds consumers that in addition to N, these fertilizers most often contain potassium (K). Potassium is second to N in turfgrass tissue level, commonly ranging from 1 to 3 percent by dry weight, and has long been positively associated with turfgrass tolerance to stresses such as cold, heat, drought and wear. “A fertilizer containing 15 percent N, 0 percent phosphate (P2O5) and 30 percent potash (K2O) is one example of a winterizer type,” he said. Winterizer fertilizers may also contain a preemergent herbicide such as prodiamine (Barricade) for the control of certain

winter annual grassy (annual bluegrass) and broadleaf (chickweed, henbit) weeds. “Interseeding a lawn too soon after applying a preemergent herbicide will result in severe seedling injury, if not death,” Samples warns. For example, depending on the application rate, inter-seeding a tall fescue lawn must be delayed from 4 to 7 months following the application of Barricade 65WG. However, Barricade 65WG can be applied to a bermudagrass lawn 6 to 8 weeks before overseeding perennial ryegrass for color during winter dormancy, and again, 4 to 8 weeks after overseeding.

Sugar Creek

Senior Living Community News

By DeDe

How about those TOMCATS? Our residents got in on the fun this past Friday with Purple and White day at Sugar Creek. Carolyn, Jack and Grace went to the Homecoming Parade with Diane, Jessie and Jennifer. Lula, 2 of her grandchildren, me and my 2 youngest children met up with them by the Court House. We all had a wonderful time. Then the Tomcats took care of business that night by defeating Fayette Ware. Great Job! David Marbury and 2 or more played for our residents on Monday. It is always such a treat for them to come and perform. I can hear the residents singing along with them all the way into my office. They are all smiling and just enjoying themselves. Afterwards David and the crew always enjoy some great Sugar Creek food. Big Thank You to Susan Ellis for bringing us flowers. They were gorgeous and the vases they were in also. We appreciate you thinking of our residents.

Pete B and Felice M both have returned home. We are so happy they have made it back to us. I know their families are glad to have them back and out of the hospital. Just a reminder, Flu season is on its way. Make sure to get vaccinated. They also have a Shingles vaccine out now, so if you have had chicken pox before you may want to check into the Shingles vaccine. Ask your Primary Care Physician about if you would benefit from taking it. Always remember though, WASHING your hands with soap and water is the best prevention. Jessie and Jennifer are keeping our residents busy with all the fall crafts they have been finding to make. The residents love this weather and have been ready for fall for awhile. You can see their crafts in each of their apartments when you come by for a visit. Jessie has been getting summer out of here and bringing in all the wonderful warm colors of fall. She

does such a great job of dressing Sugar Creek up so beautiful. We held our first CPR training class here at Sugar Creek on Sunday. Thanks to Gail Steele for coming and training our staff. Some of us are already CPR certified, but she is helping us to all become certified. It is such a wonderful thing to know how to do, because you never know when it can come in handy and you may save a life. Guess who is coming back to work? Shawanda will be back this week and Tamekia will be back next week. We have missed you two! They have each given birth to healthy baby girls. Those babies are sure growing. We would love for your group to come out and have lunch on us. All we ask is that we can tell you a little about Sugar Creek. You will enjoy the lunch and get to see all the wonderful things Sugar Creek has to offer. Give us a call today.

Crestview News Thank you to the following volunteers for coming this week: Christ Temple ladies, C.C. Club, Beech Grove Church of Christ, First Assembly of God church ladies, IMI Elder and Mrs. C.N. Ricks and grandchildren, First United Pentecostal Church, Westside Church of Christ, Mrs. Mary Barkens, Brownsville Baptist Church WMU’s and the Bingo ladies. Thank you to Mrs. Nell Fox for the U.S. Constitution word search game she brought to me for our residents to enjoy this week. We did this game on Monday, and talked about Constitutional Rights Week, September 17-23. Thank you Mrs.

Nell for sharing this with us. Thank you to Westside Church of Christ for the snack crackers they brought and delivered to each of our residents. They always enjoy those crackers. Thank you also to Mrs. Dora Mann for the bananas she bought and donated for our fruit bingo on Saturday. Just a reminder: David Smith, The Singing Fireman, will be here Friday, September 28, at 10am, and James Allen Clark from Nashville will be here on Saturday, September 29 at 2pm. Everyone is invited to attend. We would like to wish a very happy birthday to the following residents who have a birthday in

October: Mr. John Jones, 10-4, Mrs. Virginia Dickinson, 10-9, Ms. AnnNita Andrews, 1011, Mrs. Maude Cobb, 10-11, Mrs. Peggy Jane Canady, 10-12, Mr. David Chandler, 10-17, Mrs. Marie Young, 1017, Mrs. Alma Patterson, 10-20, Mr. Frank Neal, 10-23, Mr. Willie Pugh, 10-23, Mr. William “Bill” Archer, 10-29, Mrs. Minnie King, 1031, Mrs. Margaret McQuiston, 10-31, and Mrs. Ruthie Patterson, 10-31. Our resident’s birthday party will be Thursday, October 4 at 2pm. Thought for the week: After all is said and done, the wife has said it and the husband has done it.

Douglas News By Alvis M. Bond The Community Fellowship Group met on Thursday, and enjoyed a short meditation from from Psalms 23, given by Pastor A. Timothy Leverett. It was very informative. Afterwards, a potluck meal was served, and all the August and September born were recognized and were served special birthday cake for dessert. The meal was enjoyed by all in attendance. We still invite interested persons to come share with us each Thursday from 11am until 1pm. On Saturday, Mr. Calvin Douglass enjoyed his 95th birthday celebration with many family members and friends. They shared a delicious meal with him that was prepared by

his daughters Sharon, Debra and Dierdre, other family members, his grandchildren and many others. There were also many out-of-town guests. We hope he has many more birthdays. Also celebrating a birthday on Saturday was Mrs. Girlean Wiley, and we hope she has many more also. It was very nice to see Mrs. Sallie Fuller from New York, sister of Mrs. Gussie White Mask, visiting in the community with relatives and friends. Our prayers of sympathy are extended to the family of Mr. Aubrey Williams, Sr. and Mr. Edward Lee Watkins, who was in an accident on Monday morning. He passed away on

Friday, and these two men were across the road neighbors, so their families need our prayers of support. Also remember the family of Mr. Charlie B. Murphy, who passed away Sunday morning. Also, our sick and shut-ins still need our prayers: Collie Brooks, William “Bit” Graves, Callie Laugford, Luevenia Boyd, Jimmy L. Turner, Pastor Shirley Richmond, Joe B. Lewis, Shirley Hunter, Marie Browning, Betty Brooks, Edward Vaulx, Jr., Glen McFarland, Gladys Bowles, Emma Miller, Willie Douglas, Betty Douglas, Mary N. Greer, Beatrice Chapman, Ora L. Mann, Charlotte Blair and Reverend Floyd Lewis.

Around Town By Marty Williams

The Brownsville Exchange Club’s Field of Flags is coming! Our community loves the Field of Flags! The flags will fly from October 29 through November 18 on the Haywood County Courthouse lawn and Brownsville City Hall lawn. It is the most awesome sight and my heart swells with so much pride in my country and community, when I come up the hill and see those flags in the breeze! The Chamber has the forms or any Exchange Club member. Call 772-2193 for more information. Our hearts ache for the family of 26 yearold Dillon McKeel, who passed away last week, after a most courageous battle with cancer. I know he will also be playing his piano for the symphony of God and I am sure… ‘It is well with his soul.’ Keep his family on your mind. Our friend Jan Simpson Outlaw has not been a happy camper these last couple of weeks. Just when she gets joyful about one thing…another thing pops up! I’m sure she could use some cards and phone calls to cheer her up at the hospital! We are thinking about you Jan! Judge Roland Reid was certainly super busy last weekend! What an awesome gift he gave his niece Kerry Ann and her new husband,

Michael David! He said “they were ‘hooked up’ by yours truly!” What a spectacular wedding gift…to have your own uncle marry you! Wow! Kerry Ann is his sister, Nancy’s child. Pauline Elrod certainly had herself a mighty fine birthday fling! A fantastic day at Ashley’s baby shower and the trip there and back with Tammie, Maddi, Angie, and Betty, then, Jason, Jacob and Maddi took her to eat for her birthday supper. She said it was a fantabulous day! Happy birthday Pauline! Flo and Frank Bryan of Jackson, MS were in Brownsville last week to celebrate Ms. Suzie Tipton’s birthday. On Tuesday, Flo, Suzie, Sue and Bryan Geter met Sue Harvey and Kaye Hill at the Painted in Lady in Jackson, TN for birthday lunch and shopping. On Wednesday, Ms. Suzie’s friends took her to the Kreme Kastle to celebrate again! What an incredible birthday, Ms. Suzie!!

Her party theme was Little Kitty and they had Swanky’s food catered, cupcakes and ice cream! Tildon and Sarah Haynes celebrated their first wedding

anniversary last week and were so tickled! They decided to take a trip to Texas de Brazil to honor it! They are still enchanted with one another! Happy anniversary, Tildon and Sarah!

Wellwood/Zion News By Denise Phillips We must become imitators of Christ! Dr. Mark McSwain used I Thessalonians 1 to remind us of that message Sunday morning at ZBC. He and Dottie recently attended the MidSouth Regional Cancer Society gathering at the Opryland Hotel in Nashville. This week he celebrates his fifth birthday since being diagnosed with cancer and he has really been encouraging in Relay for Life to other cancer survivors! Sunday night Sara Littlejohn shared memories from a recent mission trip to Romania. We also enjoyed hearing from a Romanian Missionary and a couple who plan to move there in the summer of 2013. Please pray for this ministry as they continue work in a poor country. Brother Mark continued his “Miracles in Mark” for Wednesday night’s Bible Study. We enjoyed having our Associate Director of Missions Charles Pratt as a guest. He met with our pastor search committee following the service. Please continue to pray for this committee as they begin working to find us a pastor that God has already chosen for Zion. Rex Barnes reported ten attended the men’s community prayer breakfast with Brother Butch 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. Please continue to pray for Allen as he is recuperating from heart surgery. Happy anniversary wishes to Billy and Becky Rainey, Jason and Amanda Phillips and Justin and Britany Phillips. All three of our children were married in September! Justin and Britany celebrated theirs last week in Nashville and spent the night with the Raineys in Murfreesboro. Lyla caught a ride back to Jackson with them and called us to pick her up. How’s that for 5-year old planning? She and Alivia spent the night with us Friday night and then Saturday we had to visit the other granddaughter Lillie. We traded Alivia for Jacob Saturday night. He and Lyla attended church with us Sunday and then we went to Mason’s birthday party. Happy belated birthday wishes to Mason who celebrated with a football party Sunday afternoon. We finally got a new family picture. I was ready for parent teacher conference after all that!

Children are practicing Wednesday evenings from 6:00-7:00 and adults are practicing Sunday evenings from 5:00-6:00 at ZBC. Don’t forget to bring shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child.
