In business Thursday night at the school board meeting, the board unanimously re-elected Harold Garrett as school board chairman and Robbie Jarrett-King as vice chairman. Committee appointments remained the same as last year with Greg Vanstory serving as the TLN Representative, Allen Currie and Mrs. King serving on the

Scholarship Committee, Mrs. Hess and Mrs. King on the Collaborative C o n f e r e n c i n g Committee and Mrs. Hess and Mr. Garrett on the Budget Committee. Superintendent Teresa Russell mentioned that the HMS Warrior Football Team is undefeated, and the HHS Homecoming during her Celebration of Haywood County

Schools. Homecoming is Friday, October 11, and the schedule is posted on the school website under news on the front page – Board members approved for the Haywood Youth Sports to use three school buses to transport players and cheerleaders to and from away league games on September 28 in Jackson, October 12 in Memphis

and October 19 in Jackson. The HHS Show Choir was approved for out-of-state travel to Chicago, Illinois, in April to attend the 2014 Heritage Music Festival. Cowart Reese Sargent Accounting Firm in Brownsville was approved to audit the school and cafeteria accounts for this fiscal year ending on June 30, 2014. CFO/Associate

Superintendent Vincent Harvell presented to the board the new state health insurance offer to the board. Basically, rates increased 5.6 percent, and he proposed that the system pick up the increase. This will cost the school system $72,795 and this amount was included in the budget. The state’s insurance plan also offers employees several

new options that will have higher deductibles and lower premiums. These plans meet the requirements of the Affordable Healthcare Act. The Board agreed with his request to pick up the increase. The last order of business was the approval of budget amendments. The next scheduled board meeting will be on Tuesday, October 8.

Haywood 4-H’ers earn trip to state meat judging contest BY WALTER BATTLE The County’s senior 4-H Meat Judging team placed third at the University of Tennessee’s Western Region competition last Saturday earning a second straight trip to the State finals to be held in Knoxville. Comprising the team are Joshua and Jesse Williams, Isiah Franklin, and Quintin Douglas.

The County’s Junior High team consisting of Alexis Harris, Erica Hurt, Travis Jones, and Hollis Davis placed second in their division. These kids also participated in the Outdoor Meat Cooking contest. The Extension office is committed to providing youth opportunities to participate and learn about food and nutrition. These contests are a great

way for kids to “learn by doing.” In the Meat Judging contest, participants must identify 30 retail meat cuts, place or rank four beef rib eyes and pork steaks from best to least, and answer 10 questions about the cuts. In the Outdoor Meat Cooking contest, the team prepares beef, chicken, lamb, and pork. They are judged on flavor, using a charcoal

fire, and food safety practices. To inquire about

ways in which youth can participate in 4-H, call 772-2861 or

come by the office located at 100 South Wilson Avenue.
